If you’ve watched Chad Bartlett’s videos on YouTube, you’re probably interested in making extra income online.

Some of these side hustles can be started with very little money invested upfront and have the potential to earn a full time income.
If you don’t want to spend hours going through over 500+ videos from Chad Bartlett, you can get a breakdown of his top side hustle ideas from this article. I’ve also included links to his videos related to each side hustle if you’d like to get more details.
Who Is Chad Bartlett?
Chad Bartlett is a YouTuber in the make-money online space. As of May 2023, he has 113,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Since starting his channel in 2016, his videos have generated over 5.8 million views.
Bartlett claims to have made over $1,000,000 in affiliate commissions and claims to be one of the top affiliates for the Builderall affiliate program.
With this experience, much of Bartlett’s YouTube content is geared around different ways to make money through affiliate marketing.
But his content covers numerous ways for people to make extra income online.
1. Social Media Affiliate Marketing
This method allows you to use other people’s content to generate an affiliate income through social media.
Affiliate marketing is a way to generate an income online by promoting products for other people or companies.
You send traffic to their product and when someone buys that product, you receive a commission.
Social media affiliate marketing involves creating a niche-specific social media account and then posting content from other accounts.
This could be done through TikTok, Instagram or other social media platforms.
In this video on social media affiliate marketing, Bartlett recommends using motivational or relationship content, which both have a high potential for affiliate income. But this same method could be applied in many other niches like health and fitness or finance.
The purpose of this method is to attract traffic through social media and then send that traffic to affiliate offers on websites like Clickbank.
Before sending users straight to the affiliate offer, Bartlett suggests trying to capture their email first. This allows you to build an email list so you can continue to promote other affiliate offers to this audience in the future.
To save time you can also pay a freelance video creator from Fiverr to make the videos for you. Some of these freelancers will be able to create 10 pieces of video content for $50 for you.
2. Make Money Sending Emails
In this video, Chad Bartlett explains how you can build a monetizable email list.
The idea behind this method is to build a list of email subscribers and then sell products to the people on that list – either affiliate products or your own products.
To build your list of email subscribers, he suggests using a lead magnet. A lead magnet is a free gift that is offered in exchange for someone’s email address.
This could be a free ebook, a PDF download, a cheat sheet or a free video course for example.
The lead magnet would be promoted through social media or paid ads on social media platforms.
Your lead magnet should be related to the product you’re selling in your emails. For example, if you’re an affiliate for an exercise product, your lead magnet could be an ebook titled “Best Bodyweight Home Workouts.”
This will help attract the right audience, most likely to buy the product(s) you’re selling in the emails.
Bartlett recommends building an auto-responder in your email marketing software. Doing so allows you to send an automated sequence of emails to the subscribers on your email list.
And that gives you the opportunity to build trust with your subscribers and generate more interest in the product you’re selling.
3. Become A Digital Service Provider
Most of Chad Bartlett’s side hustle ideas will require a lot of time (and often money) invested before you start seeing a return.
But this is one way that has the potential to earn good money without investing a lot of time and money upfront.
It involves offering a digital service to businesses. This could be managing their email marketing, Facebook Ads or video editing.
In one video, Chad also gives the example of running an Airbnb marketing agency. This is where you would help people improve their listings on Airbnb by writing better descriptions and organizing better photos.
You could potentially earn $5000-$10,000 per month through this method. The other key benefit is that you could work from anywhere in the world.
In his most popular YouTube video, titled How To Make Money On Instagram Without Posting, Chad describes how you can use Instagram to find influencers and then pitch your marketing services to them.
What if you don’t have any experience in offering digital services? Chad explains how you can outsource the work to freelancers on Fiverr in this video on drop servicing.
4. Day Trading
This is definitely one of the higher-risk side hustles recommended by Chat Bartlett. But it can also have the potential for high returns.
Day trading involves short term trading of securities like stocks or currencies. A day trader tries to take advantage of small movements in the market, buying and selling at the right time.
Bartlett claims to have generated $10,000 in one month from his own day trading activities. But also admits that he is trading with over $50,000.
Over 90% of day traders lose money, so be aware that the odds are against you if you are thinking of going into this side hustle.
5. Become A Content Creator
In his video on 4 Side Hustles To Make $10,000+ Per Month In 2023, Bartlett talks about becoming a content creator.
There are many online platforms to create content on including Tik Tok, Instagram, YouTube or even blogs like this.
Content creators aim to build an audience on their chosen platform that they can monetize. There are numerous ways for a content creator to make money from their audience.
You could promote affiliate products to your audience. Or you could sell your own products and services to your audience.
One of the simplest ways for a content creator to monetize their audience is through advertising. For example, a YouTube content creator like Chad Bartlett will make money from the ads shown on his videos.
However, to make good money from advertising, you’ll need a large audience which usually takes a long time to build.
