The Easiest Ways to Make Money as a College Student

There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of ways to make money while in college, ranging from affiliate marketing to finding college books to resell. Anyone with a creative personality and a little bit of ambition can create a full time income, working just part time, while in college. Here are a few of the easiest ways to make money as a college student, other than by finding a job.

Make Money in College With…

  1. A Home Based Business.
  2. Newspaper Route
  3. Affiliate Marketing
  4. Start a Blog. There are many, many companies out there looking for bloggers to write sponsored reviews about their company, products and services. Some of them pay pretty well. I’ve personally been paid up to $100 for a single, 200 word blog post which was posted on one of my other blogs.
  5. Adsense and other revenue sharing programs such as Chitika place relevant ads on your website that pays you when someone clicks on them. With a higher traffic site, this could yield a full time income and can lead to significant residual income.
  6. Photography. Become a photographer. Everybody loves to pay others to take pictures of them.
  7. Become a Webmaster/Website Designer. If your any good with HTML or website design, this is a great part time or full time business.
  8. Buy and Sell online. Ebay, Etsy and other online shopping sites can produce a significant part or full time income.
  9. Become a professional Yard seller. So many people just want to get rid of their older or unused stuff without knowing the true value of it. Buy it cheap and sell it for what it’s worth.
  10. Craigslist. Again, buy for cheap and sell for more.

There you have it. Most of these ways don’t require a lot of your time as a college student, but can provide an extra income source for almost anyone who has a little bit of drive. Sometimes getting a job just isn’t the answer. Most school systems teach us how to get a job but really don’t teach much about become an Entrepreneur.

If the ideas above don’t seem like a fit and you’re looking to play at a much larger level of income, fill out the form below for details regarding the opportunity I have been using to create the lifestyle I now enjoy.
