As a student, I always needed that extra cash to do a few things like taking trips, having fun and engaging in other activities, but I really never had that extra income stream to make money. We all know how much that extra cash can go a long way in helping us asides from having fun and stuff. Today I decided to outline 3 cool ways to make money as a student.
3 Ways to make money in school
Sell Notes and Tutorials Online. This method is very effective because not only do you earn some cash, but you also increase your overall grade at the same time. If you attend lectures very well, come early, get a good sit and take notes. If you have a computer and you take it along to class, you can upload them online. There are a lot of websites where you can upload documents and others have to pay to download them. During examinations, the period is the best time to do this but you don’t have to wait till then. The great thing about this is that you have to do it only once because new students taking the same class the next session may also need those notes.
Sell Stuff on eBay. Although you need money to start this, it probably has the highest potential for the most profit. How it works is: you find items, cheap items and sell them at a slightly higher price on eBay. Millions of people are doing this these days and are making huge profits. Once you have it all set up, you won’t need much effort in sustaining it. People are always looking for items so you’re sure to make money from it.
Selling Shirts. I found out about this method from one of my colleagues back in school. This is one of the most lucrative and fun way of making money in school. Don’t get scared. It doesn’t involve much. This doesn’t mean you create a complex design and sell it online. Take for instance you attend a school where sports are a large part of the school’s activities, you can capitalize on this. You can make money selling T-shirts. During one of the competitions or sports festivals, you can make T-Shirts emphasizing how the home team beat the visiting team or something of that sort. Make it unique, the more original it looks, the better, and the more likely you sell a lot. Before the game starts, take a few friends along wearing the T-Shirt and tailgate early in the day. Sell them at relatively cheap prices that don’t require you to give back change say $10 or $20. People WILL surely buy these shirts. One great thing about this is, that once you sell to a few people, they serve as a free advertisement to others when they wear it. You will be sought for all over. The best time to do this is when there is an off-school activity because people will be free-spirited; some may be drunk and make an impulse purchase, so keeping it strictly during an event is key.
