The best tip is to look for something you can do to use your skills and interests. You could go the conventional route of taking on more work or you could try something a bit … unexpected.
While all of the opportunities listed below are legitimate ways to make some money, it would probably be unrealistic to expect to make a full-time income from any of them individually.
You need to get a handle on you finances and here are 5 ways to make money fast ideas to help you.
1.Sell your clothes and accessories.
If you really take a good look at your clothes you will find items that you probably have never worn or hardly used. In my personal experience I only wear about half my clothes on a regular basis. You could look at all those clothes taking up room in your closet that are perfectly nice but you never wear anymore and sell them.
Find a consignment store in your area that will appraise your items and give you a percentage of the price they sell for, or use a website that does the same thing. The best route is to use eBay to sell. Click here to on how to use eBay to sell items.
2.Rent a room as an office space
Vrumi lets you rent out individual rooms for meetings. You’d be surprised at what people might pay to avoid a team bonding or client meeting in a dire office.
Vrumi offers unique spaces so don’t worry that you don’t have a tea station or forty plug sockets, people can even search for ‘thinking, creating and wellbeing’ rooms so your quiet loft or beautiful living room might just be perfect.
A good way to make money using your home.
3.List Your services on FIVERR – random services
If you have a skill that is a little unusual then get it listed on FIVERR. You can offer up any random job from designing business cards to using your skills as a voiceover artist or anything else creative you can offer.
Tasks include help on design projects, proofreading, help with SEO, session musicians, business plans and pet care.
Try this – Go to FIVERR and type in “SCREAM IN A BUSH” there are two jobs and one will scream your name into a bush for £3.56 or another job where I will scream your message in a populated location for £17.82. You can get paid to do these simple acts!!
4.Host a dinner party for strangers and get paid – VizEat
If you’re after something more hands on to earn money, VizEat is a dinner party hosting service where you get paid to cook and host dinner parties for groups. Show off your knowledge of a particular cuisine or cook your hits to your guests and earn money doing something creative.
The dining platform recommends calculating your meal price by “adding up your grocery expenses plus the amount you’d like for your hospitality”. You can also factor in how long the preparation takes so you don’t end up with hours going unrewarded. Visit VizEat.
5.Teach English (or other language) classes online – Italki.com
If you want to work from home and are qualified to do this, it could be a great way to make some money! The requirements vary from company to company as does the pay.
As a result many are turning to freelance English teachers using websites like Italki.com. The site is basically a virtual online classroom for freelance teachers and students. Anyone can offer lessons (and set their own price), and anyone can take lessons.
From a quick scan, it looks like making $15 to 20/hour is a fair expectation. Click here for more ideas at working from home.
