We talked to Robinson about what it takes to become a virtual bookkeeper, as well as tips and advice for making this career track work for you. You can read the full interview here, or check out his website for more information.
Project Payday – Project Payday is one of those sites that has testimonials of people who have earned thousands of dollars by getting paid to get trial offers. I’m not saying you’ll earn thousands, but it is legit and you can earn some extra cash. They assume that by paying you to do a free trial, you’ll either like the product and purchase it, or forget to cancel the trial and get charged for it. If you can keep track and cancel before you get charged (if you don’t want the product), then this is a great site for making some money.
Open sellers accounts. Create accounts on Amazon, eBay and Craigslist. These platforms make it simple for sellers to set up accounts. You generally need to provide some personal information such as your name and address, and you may need to provide financial information for processing payments.
In marketing relationship building is compulsory. You will get your first payment from collaborative promotions or as sponsored posts. Sponsored post means that you get paid to write (and post) about a brand, on your fb page.
Equipment. The largest, and most important, piece of equipment that you’ll need is a high-quality sewing machine. They can range in price from about $2,000 up to $6,000, and you’ll want the best one that you can afford. Other pieces of equipment will vary, depending on what you want to specialize in. For instance, if you intend to make custom draperies, you’ll need a serger, and a drapery steamer.
A lot of entrepreneurs got their start mowing lawns, and it’s still a great side hustle today. If you live in an area where people need gardeners, knock on doors and offer your gardening services. It’s a great way to earn some extra cash.
plasma isnt part of your body really its blood. which you pump lots of every second 😛 plus it pays really good. my sister has a special blood type (its o double negative or something like that. i have no idea. but its a special blood that newborn babies need or something and it pays A LOT) and she donates like three times a year or something
There are many ways to experiment with growing your blog’s audience that I’ve written in previous blog posts and talked about in podcasts (I’ll share some further reading and listening below) but it is important to enter into all these strategies remembering that you should not just be looking for ‘traffic’ but ‘readers’.
Before a lawsuit goes to court, lawyers will simulate a mock jury trial to try different arguments and predict the reaction of the jury. While your jury decision won’t be the official verdict, this can be a fun way to reenact your favorite Law and Order episodes and get paid for it. eJury cases consist of 50 jurors and pay $10 per case. You can participate in one case each week.
Each note has an investment minimum of $25 per note and you can be as risky or conservative investor as you desire. Plus, you can also enroll in LendingClub’s automatic investing service (it’s free!) to automatically diversify your portfolio to give you the highest rate of return without excessive risk.
Food. The second word in “Bed and Breakfast” is just as important as the first. Some B&Bs have tried to serve their guests muffins, juice, and coffee in the mornings, but the most successful hosts understand that the breakfast they serve will make a lasting impression on their guests. You can get creative and serve the type of breakfast traditional for the area that you’re in. For instance, if your home is located in the South, then eggs, grits, and biscuits may go over well, while Southwest guests may appreciate a traditional Tex-Mex meal. Whatever you decide, make it memorable and make sure that your guests feel welcome and appreciated. Make it memorable, and they’ll spread the word for you.
My 10-year-old son brought home a book from our park’s free library box. It was a biology textbook – teachers edition. He said it looked interesting and hey, it was free (having no idea you could sell it). I scanned it in my Amazon seller app and realized it was worth around $150. He was so excited. We listed it for sale for $130 and it sold! Going to tell him, he just made $130!
While I’m a gardener too, I’ve never quite been able to grow such fantastic looking produce. If you’re blessed with a greener thumb than mine and you’re growing mass quantities of fruits, vegetables, or herbs, you just may be able to use those skills to earn some extra income.
eBay: eBay is one of the most popular websites in the world, period. That means it’s a great way to attract lots of eyeballs to your unwanted items, fast. Initially designed as an auction site for DIY sellers, it’s now primarily a venue for fixed-price (though often heavily discounted) sales by professional merchants. Still, as long as you include high-quality photographs and thorough descriptions in your product listings, you can likely break through the noise. eBay’s fee schedule is complex, but as a general rule, expect to lose 10% of your final selling price to the site’s commission.
I remember my first job was a junk mail delivery boy when I was about 12. Didn’t pay much at all – didn’t enjoy it much at all either. I then went on to working in a retail shop as a shop assistant, moved onto a joinery shop, and then finally I was doing painting part time by the time I got to university (full time during the holidays).
the problem with “CashCrate” is that the amount of money that u get out of it is VERY slim.. and even to get that VERY slim portion of money you have to complete a lot of surveys and to cash-in on the money you earned u must make over $20, trust me. i tried it, it took me over 6-12 months to get the cash.. i used the site like if my life depended on it. it was very hard.
Watch out for inflation chipping away at your assets. We’ve all heard an elderly person describe the purchasing power of a coin in their day. Inflation continues to make today’s money worth less in the future. To win the race against time and inflation, learn to invest your money in the right places. A savings account might help you to keep up with inflation; however, to stay ahead of the game you’ll want to invest in bonds, stocks, or some other investment that returns above the average rate of inflation (currently 3%-4%).

If you’re going to shop, why not get money for doing it? Well technically you’re not getting money, but you’re getting money back (cashback) on purchases you would have made anyways. Cool thing is, this is on top of any discounts/coupon codes you already have.
You can’t invest too much money in retirement during the early stage of your career since you may have different objectives. However, you can increase the investment gradually if you start investing just a small amount.
With these foundations in place you’re now ready to start attempting to make money from your blog but you do need to be aware that just because you have set up your blog, have content and have engaged readers that the money won’t just automatically flow.

You’ll need space to store your finds — and time to scour the streets — before you’ll start to profit. Don’t forget the time you might spend cleaning or repairing an item so you can get top dollar for it when it’s time to sell.
Believe it or not, there are sites that will give you free gift cards just for signing up with them. One of my favorites is Ebates, the cash-back shopping site. It’s giving away $10 gift cards if you sign up as a new member and earn your first cash-back rebate.
If you have time on the weekends, and are okay lifting heavy boxes and furniture, you could join up with a moving service and get paid to help people move. It’s not easy work, but most people tip the movers as well.
I can’t tell you how many people have asked me to build them a website since I started this one a couple years ago. I am not seeking the work and people are requesting it, so if you do a little legwork and pursue small business owners, there is a lot of work available.
Beyond blogging, you can also become a coach or consultant for others, especially if you have some skills that people are looking for. Maybe you’re a social media maven, or you have great online business skills. Selling your time and hopping on a Skype call or Google hangout is a great hustle.
This was sorta helpful, but i have 1 comment… who in the world would tell teens to sell plasma for some quick cash. There is no way a parent would even allow their child to sell any part of their body just to hang out with friends or buy something. You have to either be stupid or crazy to even recommend that!

@Shanul, whats up. There are a few different routes to take. But your monetization strategy comes down to 1) what your business model is and 2) who your user is. To be completely honest with you, I’d tell you to test as many monetization strategies as you can. Start with the easiest, measure, and go down the line.
My question is if I wanted to get a sponsor for my app is there a way to price this? I can see different ways to incorporate companies into my upcoming app but don’t know where to start a pricing strategy.
Seriously, if you have a blog and have decided that you need to start building up an audience then Pinterest is a great place to start. I have a Pinterest Course available to Billionaire Blog Club Members and a book on how to increase traffic with Pinterest. That’s how important I think it is.
Even regular books can earn you money. Stores like Half Priced Books and others will give you cents to dollars for each of your current books. It saves space on your shelves for something new, and you earn a few bucks.

You get paid per task, starting at between $3 and $7.
