- Online Surveys
An increasingly popular way for students to make money is to fill out online surveys in their spare time. Research companies are always recruiting new members to answer surveys and test new products.
For a few minutes of form filling, you can make a couple of dollars which is paid as cash or in rewards. You can make up to $5 for some surveys!
A few good ones to try are: Toluna, Pinecone, Vivatic, The OpinionPanel, MySurvey, Valued Opinions, SurveyBods, Your Word,Global Test Market, Hiving, PanelBase, Harris Poll, Opinion Outpost,iPoll, YouGov, New Vista.
Also sign up for Swagbucks.com which rewards you for surveys as well as simply surfing the web, watching videos and playing games.
- Start a blog
Starting a blog can give you a chance to make some extra cash just by writing about something you love. Make your blog specialise in something you love and are interested in. You can review products that relate to your subject and if the blog gets popular these companies will begin paying you for reviewing these products. These are called sponsored posts. Who knows, you could eventually get to multimillionaire status like these bloggers: http://addicted2success.com/news/the-top-10-famous-multi-million-dollar-bloggers/
- Ads on your blog
When starting out you can choose to put Google Ads on your blog, earning you around $3 to $4 a week. Doesn’t sound like much but that’s with lame content and no followers, if you put some effort into your content and promotion you could earn up to $5 a day ($35) a week after a few months. And like mentioned it #2 this might snow ball and you could be losing that Broke-Ass Student status and become Multi-Millionaire Student.
- Sell stuff on Gumtree/Ebay
Everyone’s best friends when it comes to getting rid of junk are eBay and Gumtree. Online auctions on eBay are a sure-fire way to turn that sleeveless jacket (which came in and out of fashion in a week) into hard cash.
Some eBay sellers look at trends and try to predict what will be big ahead of the market. If you are good and don’t mind taking a risk then you can buy early in bulk and sell on when the craze hits. Gumtree allows you to set the price and generally people are happy to pick it up in person saving you a trip to the post office.
- Review music for money
If you love music, make it your business by reviewing unsigned bands and artists for cash. I know… we couldn’t believe it either. It can take a while to build up your reputation but some users of the site have said that they have earned $70 a month. This may not sound like much but if it’s something you enjoy then it shouldn’t be hard work and is another thing for your CV. Money you earn will be in $US but anyone can sign up and review.
