A Guide to Making Money with no Real Effort Involved

We all want a bit more money in our lives, but most of us feel like we don’t have the spare time available to make it. Luckily, I have some money making ideas that involve no effort to share with you.

Be a Mystery Shopper

For market research purposes, businesses pay a lot of people to visit shops and buy products. This allows businesses to find out what their competitors are up to, what their customer service skills are like and where their weaknesses lie. This process is called mystery shopping, and you can become a mystery shopper.

This is great because you’re being paid to buy products and any money you spend will also be covered by the company that hired you. All you have to do is sign up online, and a business will be in contact with you to discuss the possibility of you becoming a mystery shopper for them.

Advertise

You’ve probably seen cars driving down the street with a big advertisement down the side. You might have thought that they look pretty stupid. But, as stupid as it might appear to you, that person will be getting paid a lot of money from a company to have that advert on the side of their car.

So, they’re getting money for doing absolutely nothing. This is something you should be doing too. Who cares how your car looks from the outside if it’s bringing you in a heap of extra cash each month! You’ll be surprised at the amount of money businesses will pay for this kind of advertising.

Invest Wisely

If you invest in the places, you can usually just sit back and watch the money roll in. You do have to know where to invest and make changes here and there though. But, considering the amount of money you could potentially bring in, the effort involved is actually relatively small by comparison.

If you want to make money, you should invest in businesses that are on the rise. Yelp stocks or stocks in digital businesses are very popular at the moment as they’re seen as being on the up. Wherever you invest, you should find out as much about the business as you can beforehand.

Start a Blog

If you have a hobby or something you love, you should start to write about it in your spare time. You might even be able to make some money out of it. And if you love the subject about which you’re writing, it won’t feel like you’re even putting in any effort either. Blogging should be a pleasure and something you enjoy.

Once the blog is up and running, you can start to build up a consistent readership and prove to potential advertisers that you have something to offer to them. The more people that read your blog, the more money you’ll be able to demand in the way of advertising money.

These ideas will all allow you to make some extra money without having to put in much effort at all. What’s not to like about that?

The Internet Is Yours To Conquer

internetpuzzle

I changed the way I think from, I need a 9-5 job to I can Do What I Want and make money, because I am on the other side and it is Glorious.

There is so much more responsibility (my life depends on it) and it is 100 times more fulfilling than any job I’ve ever had.

So what can you do to get where I am?

It’s all about taking that first step and using the most powerful tool in existence.

What’s the quickest way between 2 distances?

The Internet

It has broken down barriers that we can’t comprehend yet because it’s only been a viable option for about 15 years. Think about how short that is compared to any time span?

The Car has been around for over 100 years and so has the airplane.

The first commercial computer was invented 60 years ago.

Just imagine where the internet will be in 40 years.

It’s a possibility that hasn’t taken a hold of mainstream yet. Yes a lot of people think money can be made online but not as many people take advantage and truly delve in to the world of the internet.

Imagine putting together a puzzle and how it does take time but you barely ever say one is impossible.

Why?

Because all of the pieces are laid out in front of you.

That’s the internet man!

It’s a bunch of pieces that you have to put together.

Can you see them all?

Not always, which is actually good because that’s how you get ahead of everyone else. You make your own puzzle pieces.

The internet is yours to mold into what ever your heart desires. And it can make you a lot of money if you actually try to use it.

The good thing about the internet is that it is people that are on it and run it. So that means that everything that works on people in real life will work online.

You can sell them information, physical products, services, hopes, dreams, ideas. Because that’s what people want and need. That’s what we all need.

Anything!

The internet is an extension of us.

Use it wisely, Use it often, and Use it to Live Your Passion.

2 Lessons I Learned About Car Insurance

I recently had a learning experience with car insurance. Sometimes there are things in life that we just don’t think about because they aren’t significant. This is one of those times when it was in fact significant.

Check Your Zip Code

I recently moved to a new zip code and had to update my car insurance. Apparently the zip code can make a big difference in the amount you have to pay. How significant. My 6th month premium went up $1000. That was a big shocker and was a little scary since I have a wedding coming up and that wasn’t exactly in any budget. So the lesson is, when moving, be sure to get a quote with your new location so you can budget for any changes.

Ask Around

With that sticker shock I decided to shop around a little bit and they all pretty much had the same pricing. So I was just about to bite the bullet and continue with the same company. That’s when my fiancé came home and said she mentioned our little problem to a few co-workers and one of them mentioned to try the company they have their car insurance with. I thought I did get a quote from them but tried it nonetheless and low and behold it was $700 cheaper than what my current insurance company had quoted me. The lesson is to ask around to see other peoples experiences and shop around more than you think is enough.

So now I have more money in my pocket and a wedding on budget. What could be better? Now I need to start looking into life insurance.

The Easiest Way To Do Taxes With Online Income

accounting

I went over this same product awhile ago when I talked about how I used it for my personal budget. At that point I was using it for the wrong purpose, this time I’m going to talk about how to use it for you online business.

Outright.com is the best, easiest, and most automated online accounting program I’ve ever used. It will automatically categorize your expenses based on where the purchase was made. It also gives you the chance to re-categorize either just that one expense or all of the expenses that match. And of course you can create your own categories.

It’s so easy to get everything organized.

When you first login to look over your expenditures it shows you a graph of the last 3 months expenditures and if you’re in the red or not. I love that, I can tell if I’m spending too much as soon as I get there.

On the left side it has 3 spots, 1 for your accounts, 1 for the money you need to collect, and 1 for the money you owe. It’s really a great overview of your business and it’s all on the first page.

Honestly, the best part about the whole program is that it automatically does the calculations for how much your quarterly taxes are, as well as yearly. Sweet! It even breaks down all of your expenses to make filing taxes a breeze.

It’s so simple and has a very clean interface. I highly recommend it for anyone with an online business that wants to make figuring out your taxes so much easier.

It used to be free but they just recently switched over to a monthly payment. Luckily I’m grandfathered in so I don’t have to start paying until next year (It’s good to be a grandfather :) ).

Anyways, it’s still well worth the $9.95 a month and I will pay that as soon as it’s my time.

They even offer a free 30 day trial so that you can see what it’s all about.

I couldn’t recommend it any more highly. It’s such a great product and I’d probably pay $25 a month for it, so it’s a steal.

Try Outright for Free

Ps I do get a couple of bucks for you signing up but I’d recommend it either way. This is just a plus :)
