It is noteworthy that to become a freelancer, you must get an Australian Business Number (ABN) which legally identifies you and your business.

Many market research companies create online surveys to boost traffic, get users’ reviews on products or other services, and reward users who can answer a few questions or fill out a form of surveys with cash, vouchers, or gift cards. If you have spare time, you can complete online surveys for companies and earn extra money on the side.
Many recognized survey platforms in Australia include Rewardia, OpinionWorld, Swagbucks, Toluna, Survey Junkey, etc. However, ensure you perform adequate research before sharing your data during sign-ups on these platforms.

Before turning your crafts into extra income, ensure you prepare the materials and packaging costs needed for your products and the listing fees you will pay online.
