BROKE is not FUN:
Being young and broke isn’t fun. Especially when you apply apply apply to jobs and you get nothing.

There have been hours a day “in-between” jobs where I ponder away at how I can make some quick money fast.

And I would then google search that plan’s viability.

I will show you the sure fire way to make upwards of $300 in an hour or two. FAST.

 

 

1. DRIVING OR FOOD DELIVERY:
Inaction is often the byproduct of not keeping things simple. In short, stop looking all over the place for some weird way to make money and just get started with something.

An easy way to do exactly this is to leverage some sort of money making app. Top trusted online earning sites, such as Lyft and Postmates, are just two of the many gigs where all you need is a smartphone and vehicle to get started. These companies on connect people looking to make extra money with consumers who need their services.

If someone needs a ride somewhere, you give them a ride through Lyft.

If someone can’t go grocery shopping, you grab their grub and deliver it to them through Postmates.

No exhausting job search. No interviews. Just an application and a background check and you’ve got yourself a new side hustle in just a few days’ time.

 

 

2. SIGN UP FOR FOCUS GROUPS:

A focus group is a small gathering of selected and demographically diverse group of people who participate in a planned discussion (guided or open). The discussion is intended to elicit consumer perceptions on a particular topic or area of interest and their reactions are studied especially in market research or political analysis. This is to determine the reactions that can be expected from a larger population.

Focus groups are an excellent way to make money fast. In fact, some Focus Groups will be you $300 for an hour or two or even $400 for three or 4 hours in cash.

Many times I have done a focus group when short on rent or need a bill paid. I have searched Craigslist, Geebo, Kijiji and sites alike and have even got into groups that start the same day.

So if you are in need of some fast, quick or dire cash then a focus group is just a click and call away.

3. CASH IN ON SIGN UP BONUSES:Lucky for you, rewards sites like Rakuten (formerly Ebates) and Dosh can make that happen. These sites offer cash incentives for people to download their apps.

What’s the catch? None, really. The above apps, and other cash back apps like them, act as affiliates for online merchants. Whenever you make a purchase through one of the apps, they get a small commission from the store. They then pass a portion of that commission back to you as “cash back”.

Example #1: You buy a pair of Nike shoes through the Rakuten app. Rakuten gets a $10 commission because you purchased the shoes through them, but then they give $7 of it back to you. It’s basically a way to get sale prices on things that aren’t otherwise on sale.

Better yet, you can sometimes double (or even triple) dip and use the apps on top of normal store sales and coupon offers.
Example #2: Nike has a site-wide 20% off sale. Rakuten offers an additional 8% off and you have a store coupon code, for $10 off, that you found on the internet. A $60 pair of shoes suddenly comes in at $36. Not bad.

Rakuten credits a $10 sign-up bonus after making $25 of qualifying purchases within 90 days.Dosh offers a $5 bonus issued instantly after you link a credit or debit card to the app.

Since they’re free, we recommend signing up for both. Any time you go to make an online purchase, just compare deals between the apps and use the best one.

4. TRY TRIM

They say a penny saved is a penny earned.

That same adage looks a lot better when those pennies are replaced with dollars. And while this next app doesn’t exactly allow you to make money per se, it’s importance can’t be understated.

Trim is an app that can save you hundreds of dollars a year with almost no effort on your part.
How is this possible?

Well, Trim starts by taking a look at your monthly spending and then looks for places where you’re overspending — like abnormally high bills or subscriptions you forgot about.

You might be surprised to see how much you’re spending on things you don’t really need.
The best part about Trim is that it can actually lower your bills.

Once the app shows you all the subscriptions you spend money on, you pick the ones you want to cancel and Trim does it for you. Next, the app goes after those high bills and actually reaches out to the companies on your behalf to negotiate a lower payment.

There’s almost nothing in this world that we hate more than high bills and elevator music. Let Trim handle both for you.

8. DOWNLOAD THE NIELSEN PANEL APP:Have you heard of Nielsen, the company that tracks TV ratings? Turns out they collect data on a lot more than just TV.

One area they’re really into is internet usage research.

What does that mean for you? It means Nielsen will pay you $50 a year to keep their app on your favorite internet-browsing device.

The app itself collects statistics on your internet usage anonymously, so you never have to worry about any data being linked to you.

How the Nielsen Computer & Mobile Panel works:
Noninvasive, requires little storage space, and won’t impact device performanceAfter you’ve installed the app, just use the internet as normalYou’ll earn $50 for the first year you have the app installedNielsen tries to sweeten the deal by giving away $10,000 each month in addition to various other rewards and sweepstakes.

 

 

9. WORKOUT TO GET PAID:Mobile app creators have found a way to monetize every subject on Earth. The fitness industry is no different.

While most apps try to get you to spend money, some apps have built-in ways to make extra money.

Companies like Sweatcoin and Achievement (formerly Achievemint) have developed apps that collect data about your physical activity and “pay” you for that data. (The apps sync with the existing health apps on your smartphone or smartwatch so they’re not any more intrusive than what’s already on your phone.)

Using them is easy. All you have to do is download one of apps and let it passively run in the background.

Users will then collect points for daily activities such as walking or running, among various other workouts. The points (or sweatcoins) have cash value and can be redeemed by withdrawing through major e-wallets like PayPal.

Our advice? Get both and let them passively run. You won’t get rich, but daily upkeep with the apps will net you $20-$50 per month — a fair price for allowing them to track something that is tracked by Apple or Google on a daily basis anyway.

If you’re really serious about shedding some pounds, you can use your winnings from Sweatcoin and Achievement to fund a weight loss bet.

With HealthyWage, users select a goal weight loss, place a bet, and choose a timeframe for achieving their goal weight. Their proprietary algorithm determines your payout, which can reach as high as $10,000.

 

 

10. SELL YOUR USED STUFF:Selling unused or unwanted items at market has been around since the dawn of time. The only difference now is where that selling takes place.

For a good many of us, the thought of stepping outside and actually speaking to another human is a scary proposition. On the other end of the spectrum, there are certain people that get a rush out of negotiating a good deal on the sale of an item.

Tips on getting the most money for your used items:

Look at the fees. Some online platforms can charge listing, sale, and other assorted fees that cut into profit.Weekends are the time to sell (post payday).Time of day matters. Don’t have online auctions end at obscure hours.Always set the price of an item at the top-end of its value range.Sell high-value, high-margin items online (larger pool of prospective qualified buyers).Spend time on your item description. Studies have repeatedly shown that great item descriptions increase final selling price.Create urgency. Subtle words or phrases in your listing such as “one of a kind”, “rare”, and “limited time only” if applicable have been shown to increase sale price and conversion rate.Where to sell items online:Facebook Marketplace. Not the most flashy but sometimes simple is best. No listing fees, deal locally, quick turnaround times.eBay or Etsy. Large marketplaces mean more eyeballs. If your target audience isn’t on a small platform, there is reduced competition for your item.Cash offering apps like Decluttr. While you won’t make as much as you may in a private sale, cash offer apps produce an immediate cash quote for your item and quickly pay you upon delivery of the item to one of their shipping centers (good for low-end electronics).BookScouter. Like Declutter, the online bookstore gives immediate cash quotes for textbooks and other scholastic goods. BookScouter allows you to submit a book’s ISBN to 42 different vendors so you can see who is offering the most for your book.If you have unwanted, good-condition items laying around your house just collecting dust, get rid of them. Think of them as depreciating assets that are losing value daily.
