One might want to make a little extra cash to fund your savings, or that eventual big spend this coming summer season. This could be easy if you are eager to find earning opportunities as well as be able to use your resourcefulness to put up that side business.
In the hyper-connected age we live in today, there’s can be little excuse to put up that side business you want. There are always more than one way to make a little extra cash, and here are four ways to make extra money to get you started.
1. Sell your photos to stock photography websites
Remember those stock photographs you saw online, or the wallpapers your gadget came with? Many of those were actually taken by people and sold online, as opposed to edited or taken specifically for turning it into a stock photo.
Note that stock photography websites like Fotolia, Envato Market, and Shutterstock will need hi-res submissions, so make sure that you get the best resolution when you shoot photos.
2. Sell your notes
There are sites that allow you to upload your old subject notes for other students to download at a price.
Websites like Notesale ask that you upload these notes as PDFs for anyone to download. You can set a price for these notes as well, but nothing outrageous, as your clients are students, after all.
3. Get Paid for Searching the Web
Since you spend a lot of time online in any case, why not make extra cash? If you’re window shopping, doing research, or just browsing through at random, you could make a little extra cash from sites like Qmee.
You’ll have to install an add on, and click the links that have cash rewards in order to earn money, which is sent to your Qmee piggy bank, which can be transferred to you via PayPal, or donated to a charity of your choice. There’s also a mobile app for your on-the-go needs.
4. Sell your old textbooks
A time-honored tradition exists for people who’d like to dispose of books they no longer need, or no longer want to read. When that happens, you head for Recto. Used bookstores line the streets, so you’ll have no shortage of places to dispose of old books, but keep these things in mind:
· Books in better condition fetch a higher price.
· Editions closer to the current will also fetch a higher price.
· Sell directly to the buyers inside bookstores for better prices.
Recto is a bookworm’s paradise; you never know what you’ll find perusing the stores. Your best bet is to sell to the bookstores inside buildings, if you want the best price for your books.
There are also a lot of other alternative ways to make a little extra cash online, like writing reviews, or full papers for interested buyers.
When it comes to making extra cash on the side, one just has to do a little research and a little legwork. Most of these are also part-time, so feel free to invest as little or as much time as you like to earn that extra cash.
