With the cost of living rising at a rapid rate, we can expect more Brits to look to find nifty new ways to earn extra cash to boost their income streams. Not only that, but the pandemic has also brought about greater flexibility in working hours and opened up new ways of thinking about money.

In a recent study by 247 Blinds of 2,000 Britons, one in three were found to currently have secondary agitation. Of those who don’t, 38% said they had considered starting one since the pandemic began two years ago.

“Having a second or third source of income is a great way to minimize the impact of inflation on your personal finances if you can, especially if you’re struggling to save,” explained Clare Framrose, Head of Savings at Atom Bank. “Putting your extra earnings in a fixed rate saver will allow you to accumulate interest over time and can help them go even further. Otherwise, keep your money in an instant saver as a cushion for any unexpected costs.

“With rising inflation and the current energy and fuel crises, the cost of living is proving increasingly straining on people’s finances. Many will find that their salaries don’t go as far as they used to, so finding inventive ways to supplement your income is becoming more popular than ever.”

Examining the motivations behind starting a business, research highlighted that for most people, reducing financial stress was a key consideration for both men and women. Other results revealed some gender splits, with 30% of men using secondary hustle to earn money for investments and 27% using it to fund a hobby.

For women, key considerations included saving for vacations (32%) and the ability to provide for basic necessities, including food (26%). With the rising cost of food due to inflation, this is likely to only increase.

To help support this culture of ‘parallel hustle’, 247 Blinds is offering three lucky people the chance to win £1,000 just by displaying advertising in their homes. Three contestants will be paid to use their window as advertising space for 247 Blinds by demonstrating the world’s first “home billboard”.

What does the workstation look like?

Applicants will be asked to post a store which will feature the 247 Blinds logo on the back of the blind, allowing passers-by to view the “billboard” from the street. Three successful applicants will be required to lower their blinds for at least 12 hours a day for four weeks.

You can apply here until May 24, the closing date for applications.
