If you did manage to pay for college, there are various personal and miscellaneous expenses that often aren’t covered by scholarships, loans, or your parents.
As such, one of the easiest ways to make money in your spare time is by using the Internet. Here are a few ideas that worked for me.
1- Do freelance work
The world of freelance work has become enhanced ten-fold with the growing popularity of the Internet. As such, you’ll never be short on little jobs that you can do in your spare time.
One particular niche that worked for me was freelance or contract manuscript editing for e-publishers.
Most new publishing companies, especially smaller ones that only publish e-books, do not have full-time staff, and thus rely on freelance copyeditors.
After you contact them with your credentials and background, they will send you a manuscript of a novel, which you edit according to a particular deadline and are paid by the page or the word.
Other freelance areas include article writing, designing websites, and taking photos.
2- Sell textbooks and other items online
I’m not sure about you, but when I first began attending college, after a semester or two, my dorm room was cluttered with items that I had no use for.
Whether it was textbooks from last semester or a piece of furniture or household item my parents had given me but I never used, I had tons of extra stuff that was useless to me but was potentially needed by others.
Instead of selling old textbooks at the school bookstore, where you’ll invariably get ripped off, sell them, and other items on popular auction/resell sites like Facebook Marketplace, eBay, Amazon, and others.
3- Par time trading in Forex and cryptocurrency
Yes, I know it can be tricky and risky for college students but if you are really passionate about you can make some handsome amount of money through his method.
All you need is to find a good trading platform like RoyalCBank and get started.
There are millions of ways to make money while in college, but thanks to the Internet, you can do so more efficiently such that you’ll have plenty of time to study while still making time to have fun with friends. Good luck!
