These days, just about anything can be a side hustle.

However, some side hustles pay better than others, and the trick is finding gigs that will give you the most bang for your buck.

According to Airtasker, you’ll be paid most handsomely if you’ve got computer or IT skills up your sleeve.

These odd jobs, while they are the fourth most popular online freelance task, pay on average of $110 per online task.

If you have some snazzy administration skills under your belt, you’ll rake in $66 per task online, and putting your business skills to good use will bring in on average $64 per task.

And if your skills lie in writing, you’re in luck, as demand for content and copy-writing is gaining steam.

However, this skill doesn’t pay you as much as IT skills will: you’ll get $53 per online task for your trouble.

But if you are looking for a side hustle, be sure you’ve set yourself up accordingly.

“However, if you perform freelance services in Australia, you’ll need an Australian Business Number (ABN), which recognizes you as a business and allows you to invoice clients,” Airtasker said in a post on its website.

According to, last year’s fastest-growing online jobs were data entry, excel, proofreading, article writing, graphic design, editing, data processing, photoshop, article rewriting, and Microsoft Office.
