I want you to make money, a lot of money that’s our goal for you. In this article, I am going to show you a really cool way to make money in your neighborhood (or any neighborhood) buy painting house numbers.
Now, I don’t mean going around painting numbers on houses cause that would be illegal. But I have a very creative and unique side hustle idea.
A few years ago, this guy name Matt came knocking at my door. He asked if he could paint my house number on the curb for me.
He showed me pictures of other people in my neighborhood and how nice they looked. I thought they looked nice too so I told him sure.
Do you know how much I paid him? $25
And do you know how much it cost him to paint it? Maybe a $1 or less.
I am going to show you how to make money like Matt did.
What Are Painted House Numbers?
Think about when you drive around the neighborhood. Do you see the house numbers painted on the curb? This is what painted house numbers are and this is how you are going to make money.
How To Make Money Painting House Numbers?
It’s actually really simple to get paid painting house numbers.
Step 1: Buy Stencils On Amazon
You don’t need to be an artist. You can find stencils with numbers on Amazon. (even custom ones with house numbers).
Also you can get cool shapes such as a Texas state flag and you can charge extra money for this.
You don’t need 100 numbers, you only need one to nine.
Step 2: Buy Spray Paint
You can go to stores like Home Depot or Lowes and buy a can of spray paint for around $3-6. One can will be enough to paint at least 5 houses.
Step 3: Get Some Customers
So before we start go around the neighborhood take pictures of those curb things that other people have done so you have something to show if you haven’t done it before. (You can also find pictures on the internet and use those)
Next, you need to go to a house that doesn’t have painted numbers on the curve and knock on the door.
Say something like this, “I’m just going around in the neighborhood, trying to see if I can get you house number painted on the curb.” And then show him a picture, “which one do you want.”
If he picks something simple like just the numbers on the curve, you can charge him $25. But if he wants something like a state flag or other shapes, charge him $50.
It’s just simple as that. You keep going around in your neighborhood and then once you’re done, move on to the other neighborhood.
Like I said before, this is one of the simplest and easiest ways to make money. It’s just as simple as knocking on the door and getting paid.
If you have 30 bucks, you can actually turn this into $1,000 per week plus more.
