Wouldn’t it be great if making money was easy? Instead of working for 40 hours a week, taking odd jobs on the side and skimping your small change at the end of the month, you’d grab a few grand from your local bank and climb aboard your private yacht. Every day would be like an episode of Entourage.
Alas, it’ll never be. We’ve got to perform our daily grind just like everyone else. But every now and again, it would be fantastic if some extra green fell into your lap.
Well, try a few of these tips and you might just find cash easier to get hold of than you ever imagined.
The profit of an accident
Picture the scene – you’re wandering blithely through your workplace when, BANG, you trip over a cord and feel the tendon in your leg snap like a twig.
Yet a positive could emerge from your pain. With an injury at work claim, you could make the big bucks.
All you have to do is call an experienced solicitor, describe your situation and find out if your case has the mettle to win.
More than the cash, the claims process is designed to weed out poor employers and put them bang to rights. You’re doing more than making a claim – you’re fulfilling your civic duty.
So if you’re trapped in a plaster cast from a work-related accident, you know who to call.
A survey’s the way
Surveys are the lifeblood of marketing. They provide industries with concrete facts and figures to appeal to their customer base – and their participants can be paid well for their time.
Admittedly, you might have to expend a reasonable amount of time ticking boxes and answering questions. But all you need for this opportunity is a laptop and a spare few hours.
It’s not a method that will give you the big bucks. But it could, at least, give you some extra pocket money for the weekend.
A blogging delight
You might not think about it, but bloggers can be well-paid if they run their site properly. Even smaller, niche sites are sent products to review, given cash for guest blogs and can make dough from adverts on their site.
The maintenance of a good site is, admittedly, a lengthy process. Set aside some time every evening to craft a blogpost that’ll draw in users and get them sharing it on Facebook, Twitter or Reddit.
You have to be pretty tech savvy to fully harness a blog. But if you can write in an eye-catching fashion, you’re already halfway on the road to success.
