How to make an extra $ 1,000 a month? Let’s assume that you’re working 40 hours per week, 5 days a week, but you have free Saturdays, Sundays, and all evenings. Is there any possibility then to make some extra money? Of course it is, and I think I know some of the ways that you can implement. In my opinion, there are two basic types of making money: one, in which you provide some services, and the second – when you sell something. However, in order to sell, you need to have money for investment – to purchase goods.
As for the providing services in which you don’t need to have special skills and can perform them at home, in front of the computer is, for instance, writing articles on request, filling in some database with content and so on. Such orders can be found online at various online job portals. Instead of writing, you can also look for other jobs, such as: painting a picture, designing etc. You can also try to sell your crafts, the easiest way is ebay.com, because there are so many buyers.
How much can you earn from a neatly written text of about 2000 characters, or 300 words? This will usually be at least 5 to 30 dollars. There is also a need for articles of lesser quality, but the price is also lower, eg. $3 to $5 for the same number of words. Unfortunately, most people buy articles that deal with not so interesting topics like finance, loans or weight loss supplements. Orders for articles or for leaving comments on forums and blogs is probably the easiest way to make extra 1k dollars a month. However, try to take money for the order in advance, so as not to encounter a fraudulent person. Do not get fooled by the so-called great jobs at home that promise you thousands of dollars for few hours of work a day, because it’s obvious scam. It is intended to only take away money from the unaware person. Who is giving you a job but asks first for a deposit or a payment in advance?
Making an extra $ 1,000 a month other way?
And what if you do not want to provide the services because you don’t have such abilities? You can try yourself in selling. However, you need some money to start. Mind that all this is – is to buy stuff as cheap as possible and sell more expensive. The easiest way to get additional $1000 a month is by buying and selling branded clothes or electronics. How does it work? Many people often sell a lot of things online or at car boots without being aware of their true value. So you have to hunt for such occasions on ebay, thrift stores and car boot sales. When you manage to buy cheap something of value for, eg. $50 then you may be able to sell it for, eg. $200 if, in fact, it’s worth that much. However, when selling on ebay you need to provide a more professional offer, write a concise description and add a couple of good images of the object you sell. Photos here are basically the most important, and many of the retailers are not aware of their importance. For this reason, fewer people bid in their auctions and the auction ends with lower price. In this way, you are able to earn at least $100 by selling one item. When you find 10 items of this kind and value then inevitably you’ll make additional $1000 a month. The drawback of this method is to have some knowledge of the items that you will be dealing with and selling. You can pre-assume that all the designer clothes and equipment are sought after by many people and bought quite readily, so look for occasions among them.
There is here a single risk. Be careful from whom you are buying, and above all, check the previous comments of the person selling on ebay. If the person has a lot of negative comments, or it’s a completely new account, then it’s better to let go and look for another buying opportunity. It is a good practice to have two accounts on ebay – one for buying, and the other one for selling, so that the buyer could’t notice (watching your comments for the previous ended auctions) that you sell expensive things bought much cheaper.
