IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR extra ways to make money outside of your full-time job, consider what's become the tried-and-true method over the last decade: turning to your smartphone. These days, there are plenty of ways to find profitable side hustles and search for opportunities to earn extra dough through websites and apps – all in just a few swipes on your smartphone.
If you enjoy writing, find a topic you’re passionate about and start a website dedicated to covering that topic and anything else interesting you want to talk about. All you need is a computer, some time, and some energy to consistently write. It can start as a hobby and turn into a business over time. And blog hosting can cost less than $12 per month.
Many Guru’s will tell you that Amazon offer low commissions of just 4%. Which is kind of true when you are beginning, but after you make 6 sales the commission rate goes higher than higher than higher etc. I often make $100+ commissions on just a single product from Amazon. So…. what do you say now about those kind of commissions Gurus? Like I thought..Nothing
21. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling things locally. It’s like CraigsList, but a little easier. You simply search for swap shops in your area and ask to join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item, write a quick description with the price and post it. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.
The absolute easiest way to make money online is with Affiliate Marketing. You don't have to create a product, set up a shopping cart and merchant account, do customer service, work with clients, etc. It's very much like a traditional commission-based sales job where you earn commission on any sales you refer. Just as one example, you can promote a web hosting affiliate program and earn commission on every new account sign-up.
I recently stumbled on this, and it’s very interesting. On websites like Amazon, and Flipkart there is an option which allows users to ask questions. I have noticed that people who have not bought the product also answer it. Apart from this, even if you haven’t bought a product, you can review them if you have personally used it. This opens a new market for those who can participate in this activity. Companies would usually send them the product; they can try it for some time and then share their review.
Every college student possesses some unique skill set and based on that they make money online with micro jobs websites. Micro tasks include works like review writing, blog commenting, social networking sites and forum posting amongst others. These websites are a good place to start with and they could expand their knowledge and experience from there.
If you are good at writing notes and attended all lectures, you can sell your asserts to less committed students via NoteSale. You can create a listing for free, but the site will take a per cent from each of your sales. Typed notes in PDF/Text format sell best, yet it’s worth trying with scanned handwritten notes too if you have nice clear writing.
Well, this is a business itself, the student can buy something and sell if with a profit margin. The thing can be stationary(books, pen, pencil, notebook etc), which is much required by the students in a hostel or campus; a food item (especially Maggi at 12 am) or some en-clothe and many other things that you might feel required for the vicinity population. This can be a mini business and can earn a good amount if intelligently and thoughtfully persuaded.
Barter your services with friends. Do you spend more than you'd like getting your hair and nails done each month? Do you have a friend who can't resist the pastries at the coffee shop or who pays for a personal trainer? Think about what both you and your friends spend money on, and then see if there's a way for you to barter and trade services with each other in order to save money.
