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.
This is my first comment on this blog. Thanks for sharing this lovely. I am a student and I am already using some listed above like odesk,99 designs and freelancer. I would like to list a service that helps to earn more. There are many websites that give money for shrinking and sharing that url like adf.ly. I recommend to try it out and I make a decent amount from it.
2. Use your hacking skills for good. If you know how to adeptly hack into websites, put your skills to use with HackerOne.com, a platform that pays their network of more than 100,000 hackers for finding and reporting software vulnerabilities. According to data on HackerOne's website, 12 percent of their hackers make $20,000 or more per year. Approximately 3 percent of the hackers are making over $300,000, and 1.1 percent are making over $350,000, according to HackerOne.com.
While I did make $589.48 on that particular day in January, I’ve etched even closer to my first $1000 day (no proof yet, so you will just have to take my word for it). I’m seriously not saying this to brag at all. I’m far from the bragging type of person. More of a motivator. Just ask my friends/co-workers how much I try to force them into changing their lives like I have. But as the saying goes “you can lead a horse to water, but you cant make them drink it”.
Well, the work I had done in the first 3-4 months was really paying off for me that next year in 2014 (and it still does today in 2016). So for the year I was away from online marketing I was still making a very nice passive income from just 1 small website. Passively my 1 free website had made me between 12k – 15k in 12 months when I did absolutely nothing online since. WOW!. If that’s not the best business plan I don’t know what is.
Though earning through the internet is misunderstood by most Indian students as lame, yet many students have actually garnered hard cold cash through that. This is something which can be a gig in one’s free time for some extra money in the wallet. Internet is the most flexible way which offers opportunities of making money that too on one’s comfort zone. Following are the most common ways to earn money by merely sitting on your internet whether on the smartphone or personal computer:
Have some extra space in your home? Turn that extra bedroom into a “bed and breakfast” room. If you live near any sort of tourist destination, you can try your hand at renting out a room through Airbnb or CouchSurfing.com. You may also find paid hosting opportunities in your community: Sign up to host exchange students, visiting professors to a nearby college, or hospital patients receiving long-term treatment.
Don’t worry, this isn’t as sinister as it sounds. Most unis are constantly looking for volunteers to take part in studies, and usually offer money as a reward. Investigate what your uni has to offer, and check your emails to see if there’s any information about it on there. One of my mates was paid £20 for spending two hours listening to music. That’s a night out. Definitely something to look in to…
