Five ways for a College Student to make money quick
When you are in college, you may not have a lot of money to do the things you want to do. You may have enough money to get groceries and pay your bills but what about the expenses you incur during the week? You need money quick but there doesn’t seem like many ways to get it. Here are at least five ways that you can make money quick.
1. Sell something on eBay
You can sell something on eBay with the buy-it-now option or you can offer a fixed price. You can find something that you know you can sell like electronics or clothing. You can buy it while it is on sale and sell it on eBay with a slight markup in price. This will be a profit. Don’t make too much of a markup or it won’t sell. You also want to avoid buying too many of the items at one time in case you do have trouble selling them.
2. Take Surveys Online
You can sign up and take surveys online and make money as well as receive products for free. You will need to spend a lot of time signing up on the websites before you can begin taking surveys. Once you sign up, you can take a survey and submit it for cash. You can move on to the next one and end up doing several of them before you have to leave for class.
3. Offer a service in your area
Whether it is doing laundry for your friends who are busy with college and work or it is walking a neighbor’s dog, you can make money quick when you offer a service. People don’t have time today to do the things that need to be done. They do things that have to be done and that is it. Everything else gets pushed to the next day unless they have someone offer to do it for them. Clean the gutters, clean the house, shovel snow from the driveway, run errands while you are running yours. There are many ways to make extra cash and you usually get paid as soon as you get done so money is quick.
4. Create a specialty dish and sell it
Most of the time, people love to taste a different dish. Get permission from someone to set up in their grocery store or parking lot. Set up a table and pass out samples of the dish to everyone who wants it. Then you can sell it the next day. Tell everyone to come back to buy it and they usually will. It could be a secret family recipe or something that you created on your own. You want to offer a different taste from everyone else in the area and you will surely sell out quick. Start a food fair or offer to cook dinner for a family one night for a certain amount of money. It would be cheaper for a family to have a meal cooked and prepared in their home then to go out and eat dinner. If you love cooking then this is one of the money making ideas perfectly suited for you.
5. Turn your computer skills into money
If you know your way around a computer, turn it into profit. Some people know only so much in computers and may find it too difficult to figure it out when a problem arises. Offer to come to their home and fix a computer for a certain price. You can save them time and money because they don’t have to lug their computer across town to a shop.
Making money is easy when you use your talents, skills, and means that someone else may not have.
