Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, our incoming monthly salary just can’t keep up with our list of outgoing expenses. There’s rent, utilities, phone, car insurance and so many other things that need to be paid for that by the time you’ve settled all the bills you’ve hardly got anything left to spend. However, there are plenty of other ways of making money quickly so if you’re strapped for cash this Christmas one of these methods could see you making a tidy profit by January.
Take Online Surveys
Thanks to social media online marketing and customer targeted research have never been bigger. There are now numerous sites that will pay you to study different topics, run people’s Instagram and Twitter accounts for them, especially clothes boutiques, as well give you money for filling surveys online that relate to all kinds of products, experiences, and opinions. Not only can you earn a fair bit but there are also chances to get vouchers, rewards, and online discounts. Research companies need people to try new foods, watch TV and even play games to present accurate consumer data while you earn up to $3 per survey.
Use A Cashback Site
Individual retailers are partnered with online cash back websites that allow you to purchase goods through them as well as get money back. However, the payment isn’t immediate; it can take up to six weeks depending on what site you’re using, and you might have to purchase quite a few goods to make a good profit. Still, if you know you need a particular item it might still be worth having a look to see if you can get a few dollars into a cashback account to start the ball rolling.
One of the quickest, easiest and most reliable ways is to sell something that you don’t want or need anymore to someone who would like to buy it. There are countless sites that offer people the ability to sell furniture, cars, games, clothes, and even student textbooks! Some websites will also be local to your area and show you people in a nearby radius that might be interested in buying something or have listed something that they are on the lookout for. Goods sold online are still bound by distance selling laws and must be in a clean, viable state and the description on the listing must match the item the customer receives. If you’re interested in selling your stuff have a look around the house first to see what things may get you the most money.
Become A Delivery Driver
Online shopping is now so big that companies are employing home delivery drivers to pick up packages from the distribution center and take them to customers homes. In the city, there are also hourly bike messengers that deliver important documents and time sensitive packages to offices, banks, and other businesses. Elsewhere, drivers for firms like Deliveroo and Just Eat are paid around $16 for every prompt, efficient delivery that they make, but drivers are constantly on the go and are assigned quite a few packages every day as well as often needing their own transport.
