Write about your favourite topic, your genre in writing and create a website with all your content. All you need is a computer and the urge to write every detail of your topic. Your hobby would turn up as your profession. It doesn’t ask a single dollar from you, just put in your write ups as blogs. A blog can contain personal stories, social issues, and thoughts about any specific topic. To begin with first decode your genre where your words work in the best way and make it precise, your knowledge would be your best friend now. With the categorization of your blog, you make the audience clear about what they should expect from the article. After doing all this register for advertisement on your blog/ website for AdSense network.

2. Make Money via EBay

The basic sell and get paid via eBay is trending these days, just sell all the unwanted junk and get paid. The other way through the same is to use ePN, eBay partner network.

Persuading clients to do things in a better way, cheaper and efficiently is the work of a VA, it requires a good background with administrative experience. Just sign up to an agency, and begin your research work for the same.

4. Life Modelling (Hand or Foot modelling)

PS: You don’t have to be photogenic.

All you have to do is, call nearby schools, art colleges, and studios to ask if they need a life model and describe your gender, height, body structure. This is about being comfortable with your body and nudity, and to pose for the artists patiently. It would take a couple of hours and would be really boring to stick yourself in one position, Carol Holt travels across England, modelling as a life model in various school since past 23 years. To be naked for hours on end isn’t comfortable to all but you will certainly look beautiful in the artist’s paintings and sketches.

If not life modelling then hand and foot modelling can also earn you some bucks, to work as the same and flaunting the hand and foot beauty.

6. Custom gift making

Are you a creative hand? Can you design stuff in accordance to the people? This is your kind of work. Personalised gift making involves starting a small business, taking up orders from people coming up with a specific concept. Your business can involve some more people with similar Willy skills. This kind of business has a wide scope, as you can eventually bring the business online building a website to sell your products or open a Shoppe and once your store got viral then you easily make money in millions.

My preceding article had a counselling explained specifically for women but this can be exercised by both males and females depending on the personal skills.

8. Sell your notes

Being a student or teacher, throwing away the notes doesn’t make sense when you can earn by selling the same. This is another way to spread your knowledge via the self-made study notes. The typed notes earn more than the hand written ones. You can sell them to the bookstores or to a student in your vicinity, or the best way is selling online where your notes will be recognised worldwide and with every sale of your p.d.f, you would earn your part. wnotesale.co.uk, notesgen.com, and many more sites support selling of notes.

Just like the OLA Cabs based in India, quality taxi services can provide huge benefits saving the customer’s time and involving transparency in payment services. One doesn’t have to own his own car to be used as a taxi, hiring different taxi drivers taking small initial investments would work. A centralised authority keeps hold of the requirement of the customer and location of both the authorised drivers and customer. This was the driver gets more customers whilst the company makes its commission and the customer save his time with quality services.

Taking one’s own cars for rental purposes can also earn profits, hiring a driver and keeping a check of the kilometres driven.

11. Consignments

A consignment is to sell goods for an owner, for this one can take up a contract of a shop or some specific products to be sold. The owner owns all the products until it sells if it sells. If it doesn’t sell the owner takes it back home. So a consignment earns 50% of the profit the selling earns. This is how it works if you chose to take consignments!

The second option is to sell your stuff. For example, you choose to consign a television for $30; they will initially take a small ‘activation’ charge. If it sells the profit would be either divided as 50% or they might take a predefined amount, and if it doesn’t sell you take your belonging home. Before you commit do research about the store policy, because each consignment has its own policies.

12. Franchisee

This requires a good initial investment; don’t forget to research about the pros and cons of taking a franchise. It is for a fixed time period, being broken into small time segments. You are supposed to choose a business to excel in, and you should be really sure of it. To open a branch of some specific brand, there are three payments to be made.

First, the royalty to use the trademark, second compensation over the advisory services given to the franchise, and the third one is a part of each unit sale.
