There comes a time in just about everyone’s life when you just have to make some extra money for whatever reason. It’s not all that hard to do and the pay range is rather small for most tasks but adds up over time. Some can be done online and others can be done off-line.
Of course there are many different types of work you can do like auctions, blogging, etsy, Letgo, selling old books, selling scrap, getting rid of old gold, and so forth but the problem is they take a while to get paid, with some luck on eBay some auctions can sell rather quickly, but not often enough.
There are also a few sites where you can sell your used books, other than Amazon and eBay. I won’t even bother listing them all it’s more then you may think and a quick Google search will show you all you need to get started. Well you know what, I will list a few but you’ll have to check there terms yourself some are kind of picky.
- You can use scouting services like bookscouter.com | BookScouter helps you sell textbooks and used books for the most money by comparing offers from over 35 book buyback vendors with a single search.
- Abebooks | For a small monthly subscription fee of $25, you can expose your inventory to millions of unique visitors a week with millions of searches for books a day.
- Amazon | I sure you know what Amazon is and I don’t need to tell you.
- eBay | Not quite as good as Amazon but if you have a rare book or two then you’ll probably make more money faster on eBay than you would on Amazon which sometimes can take months to sell.
Online surveys, most survey sites have a minimum of $10-$15 that must be earned before you can cash it out, the problem is that most only pay a few cents for your first few surveys, which makes it really difficult to reach that payout amount and the surveys come less and less when you get close to your goal. I’ve even done some that once I reach $13-$14 everything came to a halt.
- Paid Surveys At Home | Take online & phone surveys, participate in focus groups, try new products & keep them FREE! Preview new movie trailers, no skills required & no financial risks.
Anyway that being said there are still many good survey sites. You can also get paid for doing micro jobs which can be anything from making comments on websites, making phone calls, mailing envelopes, etc. You can also go dumpster diving behind local stores, many stores have products that are still in great shape that they sometimes have to get rid of for some reason or another.
Also don’t overlook the little thing like pet, baby, or house sitting, scrap. yard-sales, painting houses, and more. It is really not overly hard to make a couple extra hundred a week if you hustle.
