Here are a few ideas from the Online Trading Academy Reviews that you can use that are safe and relatively painless ways to earn some extra cash.
Freelance: There are several freelance sites on the internet. From writing to photography, computer programming, data entry, customer service you can find a wide-variety of job opportunities through sites such as oDesk.com, Guru.com and Freelancer.com.
Create and sell: Are you crafty? If you like to make things such as bows, blankets or crafty items, try selling them online. Websites such as etsy.com offer a wide customer base and personalized homepages.
Flip: If you have an eye for good quality items head out to the thrift shops and yard sales. You can often pick up items dirt cheap, do a little cleaning or repair and sell it for a profit.
Book it: Electronics and toys are not the only things you can sell for a profit. Look around your home for books or offer to take books off of someone’s hands. You can sell these books online or to local book shops for cash.
Look for name brands: When you are out hunting at the thrift stores or yard sales, look for gently used name brand clothing. You can often wash, iron and resell these for a profit as well. Look through any old clothing you have, including baby clothes, you can often trade these in for cash or store credit.
Start your own business: It’s a lot of work, but there are several opportunities out there that are successful. If you are comfortable with selling you can try Mary Kay or Primerica. Both have relatively low start-up costs and rely solely on word-of-mouth advertising, so you’ll have to put in some leg work.
You can work from home. Take time to do your research and figure out a way that you are most comfortable with. If you choose to work with a company, do your research and find reviews, both positive and negative, to help you form an educated opinion. You can avoid the scams by doing a little research or striking out on your own.
