There is a lot of freelance work online. You can sign up for sites like UpWork, or you can even become your own online freelancer like I did. I’ve made over $10,000 on the side by online freelancing, and I share my story, as well as resources to help you get started, here: How To Start Freelance Blogging and Earn $1,000s on the Side.
Do you have old books, CDs, or DVDs? Then you should consider selling them on Amazon. It’s incredibly easy to list your items to sell, and you’d be surprised how much you can get for old stuff sometimes.
Do you have something you can teach? You can teach something online at sites like Udemy.com. There are courses online for just about anything, and you can charge whatever pricing you feel is right for your instruction.
Experience. Whatever area you want to work in as a consultant, you must be able to show clients that you’re qualified to advise them. If there are organizations related to your field, make sure that you’re a member of them. Similarly, if you can take a course and become certified or registered in your field, do it and then add that to your credentials.
@Nick – very exciting! The first thing I’d do research exactly WHO your prospect user is, WHERE they hangout, and HOW you can convert them into an app user. Next, I would post a job on a service like upward.com to get an idea of how much this would cost. From there, you have the beginnings to start reaching out and talking to investors. Without knowing too much about your app…have you thought about partnering with influencers? We recently published a post that outlines how to find influencers and partner with an app. Here’s the read:
Smartphones and mobile devices sell like hotcakes. Since every manufacturer pumps out a different model every so often, consumers will ditch their “old” phone they purchased months ago to get their hands on the latest version.
Selection. One of the keys to success on Etsy is selection, according to industry insiders. In fact, the goal of most serious shop owners is to have at least 200 items for sale. If you’re creating all of those items yourself, that’s a pretty big time commitment. But the more options you give to your customers, the higher the chances that you’ll make a sale.
Decluttr is easy to use. Grab an unwanted item, check that Decluttr buys it (for instance: CDs are great, old clothing is not), and enter its barcode into Decluttr’s “valuation engine” or use your Decluttr smartphone app (iOS and Android) to scan your item directly. You’ll receive an instant price quote that you can accept or decline with no obligation. If you accept, just pack your items into a box large enough to fit them, slap a free Decluttr shipping label on it, and bring it to any authorized UPS location (including drop boxes, if your box contains fewer than 25 items). Decluttr issues your payment the day after your item arrives by PayPal, direct deposit, or paper check. There’s no practical limit to the number of items you can sell: each order is technically limited to 500 items, but you can create as many orders as you like in any given timeframe.
Casino dealer for corporate events. There’s also opportunities to do private parties. You can learn all of the games…blackjack, poker, craps etc on YouTube. You just need to invest in a nice pair of dress pants/skirt, a dress shirt, and dress shoes.
The safest way to make money with trading is through arbitrage. In short, this means that you see an opportunity to buy an asset in one place for a certain price and sell it immediately at another place for a higher price. It is important that you know you can sell the asset immediately at a certain price. If this does not hold, then we are talking of speculation – or gambling if you prefer.
Please help. I turn 15 in a few weeks and live in WA and the whole state has labor laws where I have to be 16 but I really want to get a dirt bike this summer. It’s hard to find a job and everbody mows there own lawns! What should I do? How do I tell the difference between a real site that will pay for suveys and a fake one? Is it possible to make 3000 in 15 weeks?
826 National is the largest nonprofit youth writing network in the country. 826 encourages under-resourced students to ignite their creativity, explore identity, advocate for themselves and their community, and achieve academic and professional success – all through the transformative power of writing.
Location. The most successful bed and breakfasts are those that are convenient to airports, historic parts of town, or other tourist attractions. That’s because there are two types of guests who tend to frequent B&B’s: business travelers who are tired of sterile hotel rooms, and families looking for a unique experience. That’s not to say that you can’t develop a successful B&B if your home isn’t located in the perfect spot, but you might have to work harder to make it a success if it isn’t.
If you’re looking for an easy quick way to make some money online, you should probably become a Userlytic Tester. Recently I’ve covered a lot of Usability Testing jobs and came across Userlytics and wanted to write a review of this job.
What you offer could be absolutely anything, from writing and translating, social media posting, playing pranks and teaching to creating music, voiceovers and short video clips for people all around the world!
Sign up with focus groups in your area. Studies that you are eligible to participate in pop up sporadically but pay quite well – often more than $50 for an hour of your time. You can also look for focus groups online but will have to sort through a lot of bogus “opportunities” and sites that ask you to pay up-front for the privilege of participating before you find anything worthwhile.
Believe it or not this is seriously the easiest way ever to pull in hundreds (even thousands) of extra dollars per month. Most of it involves very little or no work on your end and there is almost 0 overhead to get started.
I’m 15 years old and tying to raise money to go on this really amazing trip to the Mediterranean. I’m having a problem though: I live in a REALLY small town, I haven’t lived here long, and I actually want to work for the money. Do you have any ideas that I could maybe use to get the money?? I have to raise $7,000. At most places around here, you have to be atleast 16 to get a job, because I tried. So, help!!!
Persistence and Commitment. You’ll need to have a good amount of persistence while pursuing freelance writing gigs. This business is subjective, and while one person may love your writing, another may not. Do your best to always produce good, solid copy and hold on to your commitment to do the best you can for your clients. Just by committing to do those two things, you’ll be miles ahead of your competition.
@Angel – Depends on the kind of traffic, but usually you’d use an Ad network to mediate the traffic so that you can see how valuable it is. Mess with targeting (games, demographics, geolocation, etc) and see which ones produce $$ for you. I’m assuming this is a website? If it’s not then you may have some other options but those will be done directly through advertisers or agencies.
On the downside, some ClickBank products can be of poor quality, says Bethany Mooradian, owner of QueenoftheRandomJob.com. So some products are easier to pitch than others. One solution is to buy the product ahead of time to assess its quality, she says.
The problem is that many people just don’t know how to build an audience or don’t put any focus on building an audience. Instead, they concern themselves with blog themes, Twitter posts, and other small things that don’t move the needle.
Another big tip is to have a great cover designed (browse these) so it stands out, and once your book is live on the Kindle store it’s really important to get some reviews so it shows up higher in results. Encourage readers to leave an honest review at the end of your book.
I sold a junk-picked table for $50 last year, and cashed in on a few other items retrieved from a dumpster. But it looks like I could be doing even better — this guy makes a six-figure income dumpster diving.

Just download the app and start scanning the barcodes on your media to get immediate quotes. It’s completely free to use; there are no listing or seller fees; payment is super fast and there’s even free shipping.
Hi. I am going to be 14 in February. I want to earn money for a trip to Europe in summer of 2012 . I am trying to earn $2,000 -ish. Could I sell art since I am good at drawing ? Would it cost me money to sell them? Like a credit card? I don’t have one…. Any suggestions? I was thinking tumblr. But blogging is SLOW and nobody seems to notice my posts.
Service. Another key aspect of successful B&Bs is the level of service that the hosts provide. You’re not just offering room and board, but an experience. If they need help planning a day seeing the sites, offer to sit down with them and help them plan their itinerary. If a businessperson needs copies for a presentation, offer to go and make them. Remember, your job as host will be to make your guests’ stays as comfortable and pleasurable as possible. If you succeed, they’ll remember you the next time they travel through your town.
2. Become a Social Media Influencer : An Influencer is an individual, who has above average impact on social media and who can influence a customer’s purchase decision. There are so many brands out their who are interested in advertising their products and services and also there are several platforms which connects brands with social media influencers. One such platform and my favorite is Famebit.
Ambition. If you prove yourself a good employee, there are opportunities for advancement in the ranks of call center employees. You won’t even have to give up working from home to take a promotion; team leaders, managers, and account managers can all work from home.
Free Shipping: You don’t have to pay to ship your sold items to Decluttr. Shipping costs are factored into the price Decluttr is willing to pay for the items it buys. All you need to do is box up your item and drop it at a UPS location.
I use the appngamereskin to reskin of andriod app. This is a good solution and it is also really cheap compared to others. Many do not reskin the purchase products but this one does and it does it at really low price. Thanks for the effort
I will never use in-app purchases. If its just to ‘cheat; and get advantages, it defeats the purpose. If the dev doesnt tell you in advance, I hate it even more..sell it for .99 – not free and then ask me to pay (these are apps that dont disclose up front)…Regarding ads, I cant tell you one ad Ive ever seen…I dont mind them as long as they don’t cover up the screen…and lots of devs make that which annoys even more. If its in between games or something like that, it can get a little annoying but its ok. Ive seen other games, Angry Birds for one, where the ads interfere with game play. I also notice many apps are FREE on Android yet are PAID on Apple. For Android users, Amazon FAOTD is a good program that enables you to get android paid .apps for free.
In-app purchases allow users to unlock features or purchase more of something, maybe coins in a game like Tap Zoo or gold in a game like Infinity Blade. In fact, 6 of the top 10 grossing apps in 2011 were free – they were able to use in-app purchases so well that they drove millions of dollars in sales, even though the app was free.
You can be get paid for selling facebook page likes. But this way you will not always earn the same amount as it is shown here. I have seen people selling 1000 likes in Rs.50. Your earning depends on the demography you are targeting and type of client you can get.
“Live Ops is a company that hires virtual call center agents. You are responsible for paying for your own criminal background check prior to starting work (this costs around $30). You also must have your own dedicated phone line and a quiet workspace.
Offer adjacent services – Aside from cleaning the pipes for an additional fee, you can also provide reinstallation of their old appliances to make way for the ones they purchased. By providing related jobs to complement your primary service, which is selling appliances, you can make more money in the long run!
Many companies pay you for rating local pizza shops. You just have to rate the place on the quality of their pizza and note their delivery time. For this, you can get a free pizza, plus $5. Just register on Trendsource and get started.
Another good way to make some fast money is to take your old clothes, books, jewelry, furniture that you don’t want any more to a resale store that gives money back for your clothes. Make sure the place you are taking them to is one that does cash back, some resale shops only do store credit for your clothes. But I am a freshman in high school and I do this frequently with my clothes. Resale stores give you from 1/8 to 1/4 of the profit they will make from your clothes. That is a really good profit. I sometimes clear $60-80 off of the clothes, books, movies, jewelry that I take in to resale shops. A good nationwide resale shop to take your clothes too if you are a teenager is Plato’s Closet. They give cash back or will do store credit. They take clothes that are currently in style and also take books, jewelry, shoes, movies, and CDs. Plato’s is also really good about taking name brand items like Miss Me’s and True Religion, and so on.
@Stasha – not really. Your best bet is to do something like Kickstarter, especially with your idea because you may be able to reach people who connect with the cause. You could also donate some of your profits to a charity which would help get funding. Good luck!
