The word ‘scheme’ might be off putting to some, with phrases like ‘ponzi scheme’ and ‘pyramid scheme’ showing up in headlines. However, that’s not the case here. These schemes that we highlight are used to channel your talents and passions and make money off of them.
Be an Online Seller
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, as the saying goes. And who knows what treasure could be hiding in your trash? A great place to start is eBay, a consumer-to-consumer website that hosts online auctions and shopping. You can list your items on eBay at a fixed price or have people bid over them. You can sell old items from clothes to books to DVDs and more. Basically, anything you can imagine, you can sell it. But what if you want to work with websites like eBay and Amazon but don’t want to hassle of finding and shipping goods? We offer a course where you can make money without handling the products. When you are finished with the course, you will know how to set up automatic systems that sell high-demand products.
Make Money By Freelancing
If you can pick up enough work, freelancing is a great way to make money. It allows you to create your own schedule, work from home and work as little or as much as you like. There are many ways you can use your skills to freelance, from writing to photography to website design. The key is to find the skill you are best at, promote it and network within the field you desire to work in.
Writing is a very common way to make money freelancing. In order to make a decent amount of money, you need to be able to write efficiently and write well. If you can already do those things, then start pitching story ideas and sending out your resume and clips. If you are unsure if you have those skills and want a good place to start, try this freelancing program we offer. With the course, you won’t need connections in the writing industry in order to break into freelancing. You’ll learn how to break into freelance writing without having writing clips and what it takes to get quality clips going forward. Getting noticed when pitching yourself is another skill you will learn, as well as handling rejection and learning from it.
Writing isn’t the only skill you can offer clients, however. With technology becoming more and more a part of our everyday lives, it is important to be on top of the latest technology trends. Doing this will make your skills more marketable when looking for a job, whether it’s freelancing or corporate. Web development is one of those key skills that can be helpful when looking to make extra money. A key component to big and small businesses is having a clear, easy-to-navigate website for their clients and users. You could be the person who helps them set one up. With this course, you will be able to learn how to make a complete website from scratch. You’ll learn how to use HTML5 and CSS3 at your own pace and practice until you feel confident to go out and design websites on your own.
Teach Your Own Online Courses
Not all instructors need a classroom to teach. With the way our society learns, there are more and more classes available online. Teaching online is a way to make money that is flexible and doesn’t require previous online or traditional teaching experience. Those who are interested in teaching online, but are worried they do not have the experience needed should take a look at this course. Broken down into four sections, it helps you determine if online teaching is right for you, what subject (or subjects) you should teach, developing a teaching presentation, selling your online course, building a brand and more tools and tips.
Flip It and Sell It
With shows like “Flipping Out,” “Flip That House” and “Flipped Off,” the flipping industry is at its peak. If you’re interested in interior design, construction and working with your hands, flipping is a great way to earn money — if you do it right. The goal with flipping is to make the property value of a home or building go up by remodeling and redecorating it. The key to this, however, is to have the property be worth more than the amount you put into it. That’s where you make your money.
You can also flip on a lesser scale as well. You can find furniture for cheap and flip it to sell it for more. Same with handbags, candy machines, mirrors and more. This course opens up the world of flipping and will help you take discarded, drab items and turn them into something desirable. You will learn how to scout garage sales, auctions and Craigslist for items, turn those items into something beautiful and then put them on the market in a way that will attract shoppers.
Working for Yourself
The great thing about these money making schemes is that you get to be your own boss. You decide how many hours you put in and what times of day you get to work. If you’re not used to working for yourself, this final course will help you to be self-directed and take action to make the money you want to make. Remember, you’re the one who can make this all happen. Now let’s get to work.
