For the uninitiated, a ‘side hustle’ is any money-making gig that you take on, over and above your day job, to bring home that extra bit of bacon. And, if you’re one of the unstoppable entrepreneurs who truly hustle with heart, these after-hours pursuits have the potential to take you from overtime to the big time.
OLX, South Africa’s free online classifieds platform with 1000s of ads available for both buying and selling across a wide range of categories from cars, furniture and electronics, to jobs and services, is giving side hustlers from all corners of our country the opportunity to Hone Your Hustle. This is, quite literally, the leg up you need to take control of your financial future and kick it into overdrive – by adding a little ingenuity and a whole lot of creativity – and become the hero in your own success story.
If you’re a hard-hitting side hustler who refuses to simply sit around and wait for fortune to find you, then the #OLXHoneYourHustle is the shot you’ve been waiting for. Simply tell us how you’re hustling to finance your dreams for tomorrow, and you could walk away with R10,000 in cash, a Red & Yellow digital marketing course valued at R16,500, R5,000 in OLX ad spend and other awesome prizes. Kooky, cool, crazy or downright off the charts, the more unique your side hustle is, the more chance you have of hitting the jackpot – just tell us all about it, and you could be one of 20 side hustlers featured on the #OLXHoneYourHustle campaign hub. How do the top 20 side hustlers compete for the grand prize in October?
Something to look out for, the competition will be supported by cutting-edge gamification that allows your family and friends to get involved, play an interactive Hone your Hustle online game and score points for your unique hustle. Points will be tracked via a live interactive leader board on the campaign hub and the side hustler with the most Hustle Points at the end of the campaign takes it all.
Throughout the campaign, you can get inspiration from influencers who have used their entrepreneurial chops to propel them into the fast lane, including Vongai Mapho, Zizopho Jebe and Nic Haralambous – all side hustlers, and all ready to ignite your spark with their incredible success stories.
Launching on Monday, 7 September 2020, the campaign will also run across OLX’s social platforms, where top side hustlers will be featured, and weekly prizes will be given away.
