Focus online

How to make extra money as a nurse

Before I give you the best ways of how to make money as a nurse I would like say that the ways to make money I will show you are all online.

Why I am emphasizing online you may ask?

Well, in case you have not been living on earth, everything now is online when it comes to making money now.

This is because of the convenience of online compared to the brick and mortar model of conducting business. In fact, you can even get started for free as a business owner online and make millions.

So what are you as a nurse waiting for?

You do not have to even skip your job put you can work online while you are at work (ha-ha I know that is a being pushy, but that is how I got started online).

1. Affiliate marketing

My number 1 recommendation for making money online is affiliate marketing because this is one of the easiest ways for anyone who doesn’t have much money to get started.

This is because you can start a website with less than $100 these days and have your online business up and running.

So what is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is when you become a promoter of a product for a certain company. When a person buys the company;s product through the link you are given by the company you earn a commission.

With this you can promote limitless product just by having links on your website and make commission.

Although it sounds very simple it is not because you have to work to get the results. Luckily there are courses which can help you attain this knowledge.

I have been through some but the one I highly recommend is Wealthy Affiliate because it gave me results compared to others and on top of that it was free to get started and learn.

2. Consulting online

Another great way for nurses to make money is to being a consultant of your own. This means that you will charge people for certain services you help them with.

As a nurse you should have a lot of knowledge about your field. So you can take something you are good in and specialize to help others.

For example if you are good with helping people with muscle pain than you can focus on that.

When you are consulting you can open your own online enterprise services to help other people get better. You can than be a coach online to help them figure out what they should do.

Again as I said it is easy to open a website and start your online business. In fact, you can start a free website with siterubrix and create two free websites.

3. YouTuber

This section is about starting a YouTube Channel is similar to being a consultant. In fact in order to grow as a consultant YouTube can be your best marketing strategy.

YouTube is easy to do if you can stay consistent and treat it like a business.

It is good that with YouTube you can have many ways of earning and income such as adds or through views.

4. Open a membership site

Do you have any hobby you really love or any talent you have which you could teach people?

I am sure you do right?

Let us say you love music so much so all you have to do is to have a membership site for people to come and pay a subscription when they come to your site.

The good thing about having a membership site is that it can pay you monthly and it will end up being a full time income easily.

The great thing about a membership site is that you can open it in absolutely anything and here are some examples:

  1. Advice membership site
  2. Health related membership site
  3. Music related membership site

5. Social media influencer

Social media is one of the best platforms which you can use as a nurse to make some decent income.

To be an influencer on social media you need to have great knowledge about something and you as a nurse are already at that position. You are knowledgeable about the health industry.

You can start for example Instagram and post about things that you do at work and how patience fix certain health problems.

I already know one person who has done that and people thought she was a doctor.

This made her very famous until she decided to start her own consultation business and left her career as a nurse.

Final thoughts

Making extra money as a nurse is relatively easy due to the flexibility of the work so this makes a person have all the time in the world to make this happen.

There are many ways for nurses to advance themselves financially to a point where they make a full time income on the side without needing a job.

The best ways to make money as a nurse are:

  • Affiliate marketing
  • Be a consultant
  • Open a membership site
  • Social media influencer

These are one of the easiest to get started online compared to any others. There are others which are easy to start like surveys but I would not recommend it because they will not give you the income you need.

You are better off focusing on something which will sustain you long time.
