What’s up you guys it’s Danny here and welcome back to my channel. Today’s video is going to be a little bit different but I really like it. I’m going to show you guys a couple of ways that you can make money online. If you’re in high school right now or you just started college, you probably know that it’s really difficult to get a couple of bucks here and there, so this video is really going to help you out because obviously this is a day and age when we spend a lot of time online. So making money online is actually not that difficult. People are used to getting paid through, you know the conventional ways of working.
However there is a couple of ways that you can make money online, especially if you are in high school and you have a lot of free time in your hands. I hope you guys enjoy this video. If you do, please give it a thumbs up and also subscribe down below so you can see more videos like this in the near future. Because I am making them every Wednesday and Saturday now so I hope to see you guys here soon. So without further do, let’s get to this video on how to make money online. That way. So number one is going to be doing surveys online. You can make upwards of $100 a month on just doing surveys while watching TV. Which is like yeah, pretty cool. There are so many different websites that do these types of surveys online, so I am just going to list a couple of them down below so you guys can click on them. It’s really easy to sign up, it’s also free. Be careful if they ever ask you for money to do a survey, that is probably a scam, so never give money, never input your credit card information or any other type of information that they are asking for.
These should be free, of course because they re paying you to do the surveys. You are not paying them to do the surveys. So on some of these websites you do not only earn some extra cash, but you can also get super cool rewards, like gift vouchers, prize drawings, you can event get free products out of it which is pretty cool. So I’m going to link them down below. Just doing a couple of surveys a month and you can get a couple of bucks right there. Like yeah, I’m totally signing up. The next one you’re probably going to love because you’re already here. Getting money for watching videos. Yo’. Like what? Yes. You can make money from watching videos y’all. Like seriously. There is a site, it’s called Swagbucks, and all you have to do is watch videos and like them.
You also have to watch them for a certain amount of time in order to get your reward. You can earn upwards of $200 a month from watching videos and liking them. Earnings obviously vary but this is so cool you guys. So simple to do. These are things that we already do. I mean I personally spend hours every single day watching Youtube videos so the fact that you can get paid for watching commercials and different types of videos that they put out there on the internet it’s like so cool. Alright number 3 is going to be downloading apps. Which is something that we also do all the time on our phones. I hope you have enough space on your phone for this one. But I’m going to give you simple apps that you can download that are going to make you a couple of extra bucks.
So the first one is going to be the Nielsen Mobile Panel app and that one is actually brought to you by the Nielsen TV ratings website. And basically what you do with this one is basically just keep the app on your phone and you’re going to make money. You can earn upwards of $50 a year. Now this one doesn’t sound like a lot, but just for keeping an app on your phone you can earn money and that’s pretty cool y’all. The next one is called mobile expression and all you have to do is again download it and you can be entered to win different prizes every single week. You can play like a game they have for market research to have companies understand different customers and you can actually earn prizes off of that too.
So I’m going to put the link down below. Number 4 you are going to be joining this website that is called MyPoints. And basically what you do through this website is shop with those points on websites like Amazon and Walmart. And basically you get points for shopping through the website and those points you can later redeem for travel miles. You can redeem the points also for gift cards and restaurants and all kinds of stuff. The cool thing about this one is that just for joining MyPoints which is a free services again, you get a $10 amazon gift card.
So again, link down. Number 5 is going to be for checking out websites. All you have to do is check out websites, navigate through them and then you’re going to give your feedback on them. And this one gets you an almost whopping $30 an hour just for checking out websites. And giving your opinion on them. Thus company called User Testing is actually the one that does this. And all you have to do is record your screen while you are navigating through the website and you’re sharing your thoughts. And then for every 20-minute video that you make you get $10 on Paypal. Number 6 pays you to be healthy. Awesome. This is a really good motivation for you to stay healthy. Because they are going to pay you for it basically. This one is done through this website called Achieve Mint and basically what they do is reward you for being healthy.
For walking, and logging your information into your FitBit or MyFitnessPal which is a free website online where you log in calories and your exercises every day. For every 10,000 points that you earn through their website, you can get a $10 reward. This one is one that I just learned about and I’ve never used it before so I’m excited to use it and I wanted to share it with you guys because yeah. Are you a writer? Are you the friend that people always call when they need someone to review their papers? Then I have the perfect website for you, it’s called Upwork. And Upwork pays you to write. Or correct people’s articles or books or whatever they might write. So there is this website that has thousands of employers who are looking for people to review their papers, their articles, their books. Anything that they have written that they want someone to look at and maybe fix. So if you are an English major or you are very very good at English and you always catch those mistakes on people’s papers, or articles or emails or whatever it might be, this is a great way for you to make a couple of extra bucks.
Number 8 is really similar to number 7 which was Upwork. And actually Upwork does this as well. There’s a bunch of websites out there that are looking for graphic designers and people that are very good with computer skills. So you can do anything from designing graphics. Doing marketing and web programming jobs. So if you are really good with computers and you know all of these things check out the couple of links down below that I am going to put and I’ll probably put them here on the screen somewhere. There are really good websites that are looking for people who are skilled in these industries and can do the job for them. Check it out if you are good with computers. Number 9 is going to be also with Upwork and a couple of other websites. And it’s actually becoming a virtual assistant. So if you want to work from home and make a couple of extra dollars or you want to make just your living from home this is a good way to become someone’s assistant on the internet. So you will be doing everything from handling emails and travel expenses and day-to-day tasks that the person needs.
And sometimes you can make anywhere between $50 -$100 an hour for assisting someone through the internet. It could be like a high end company owner, or an online company but still require that assistance. So if you want to do that, this is probably a really good idea. 10 is for those who want to give private tuition classes. If you have a lot of SAT knowledge. Basically a service to provide tutoring for people and it’s called Chegg Tutors. Again their link is going to be down below and you can do that as well for a couple of extra bucks.
Number 11 is going to be for sharing your honest opinion on products with focus group companies. What these companies do is basically bring you into a focus group to provide honest feedback on products. So they basically show you the product and you provide an honest opinion on it. They ask questions. It’s so simple. I’ve done this one many many times here in L.A. and actually you an do it online as well. Check out 2020 Panel which is the website that does this type of service. I think it depends on the product that you are reviewing but you can earn $100 or more just for reviewing a product that you probably use on a daily basis. If you’re a pizza lover you are going to love number 12. Because this one is basically just rating pizza places on their quality and their delivery time. So there is a bunch of websites that do this. You can actually get a free pizza out of this and earn like an extra $5 bucks depending on the place.
I’ll probably be doing it like right after this video. I really hope you enjoyed it. And again if you did please give this video a thumbs up and also subscribe down below. Because you hopefully want to see this face in the near future with more videos. Every Wednesday and Saturday so I hope to see you guys back soon. These are really really easy things that everyone can use to make a couple of extra bucks. And you know, who doesn’t want a couple of extra bucks because we’ve got to pay for a lot of stuff. Whether you are in high school, or in college or you are an adult already and working full time, there is a lot of things that we have to pay for.
So a couple of extra bucks other than your conventional job never hurt. So I hope this video did help you out and yeah..
Hey guys, what’s up? This is Qazi from CleverProgrammer.com. And I don’t care if you’re a swimmer, I don’t care if you’re a shark hunter, or a programmer. Everybody needs to know how they can make more money and more sources of income. It’s one of the most common questions I’ve been getting recently. Hey Qazi, I don’t have any money, how can I make more money starting today? So, that’s what this video’s gonna cover.
Let’s jump right into it. (electronic music) Before we jump into the top four ways you can start making more money today, would you please go hit that like button, so we can reach out to more people and help them as well? Also, if you have subscribed to my channel, there’s a little bell shows up to the right of the subscription box. So, if you click that, then you can make sure that the video gets directly to you because there’s currently a problem with YouTube, where the videos aren’t going directly into your inbox. So, I don’t want that to happen to you, so you don’t miss out on these tips and tricks.
So, the advice I’m gonna offer you today works pretty much for all ages, so I don’t want you to worry about that. First of all, before we start talking about different ways you can make more money, you need to understand why somebody would pay you. People want to pay you if you provide them with some kind of value. What I mean by that is, for example, I’ll see a Facebook post by one of my friends going hey, I’m trying to get a job for $9 an hour, who’s trying to hire? What’s wrong with that pitch? What’s immediately very wrong with that pitch and probably nobody wants to hire that person. It seems that they’re desperate and they really have nothing to offer besides just ask you for money. What you need to do that’s different from somebody with that kind of approach is make sure that you offer something of value, so people want to give you money for it. Now, I’m going to share with you the first way that you can make more money starting today.
Teaching private lessons. Do you have expertise in any area of your life? Now, a lot of people have this almost inferiority complex, I wanna say, where they think that they’re not good enough or whatever they teach is not valuable enough to people. How about if I told you that people making very basic caricatures, cartoons essentially, are getting paid $250 an hour, and they started with $8 an hour at a point? What if I told you that I myself, as a chess coach, I started charging people $25 an hour, $30 an hour, when I pretty much began my career and I was 17 years old, to then going on and being able to charge people upwards of $150 an hour? Is that ridiculous? That is pretty crazy, but people are willing to pay you, if you have a certain skill that you can teach them. I guarantee that if you dig deep down enough, you have skills that you can share with people that would really help them. Think about all of the ways that you can help somebody.
Okay, I don’t care if it’s your friend or your grandma, but if you are able to help them with one of their things, you can help somebody else, who’s willing to pay you for your certain thing that you can help them with. So, I’m gonna tell you about some websites that you can actually go to. One of them is called Takelessons.com. Okay, you can actually go there, make a profile, and if there’s a certain skill that you think you can bring to the table, most of those things you’re able to charge for. For example, I’ve taught lessons on table tennis. I’ve taught lessons on video editing. Am I a professional video editor? No way.
That’s not something I do for a living. Sure, I make videos and put them up on YouTube for you guys to watch, but I am in no way a professional editor. Anything that you think you can offer to other people, you need to find that group of people that needs your help and then offer your services to them, okay? Getting rich is not a byproduct of saving more on, I don’t know, a cup of coffee or saving $15 or $5 a day, trying not to hang out with your friends, trying not to go out too much, trying not to play a game when they wanna play it or watching a movie outside.
That is not how you become rich. There’s a limit to how much you can cut from your spending, but there’s no limit to how much you can earn. So, you need to think more in terms of how you can increase your income streams, rather than cut your spending. I’m not saying cutting your spending is a bad thing. If you’re doing something obnoxious, sure. If you’re subscribed to 30 different TV channels, maybe cut your subscription or something like that. That might help you. Now, regarding lessons or private lessons, you don’t have to be an expert in that industry to offer them. You can be just one step ahead of them, and often people like that a lot better than somebody who’s just an expert because somebody who’s an expert can’t get down, most of the times, to their level to explain to them exactly what they need to know, but somebody who’s only one step ahead can explain that very clearly and understands the troubles of the person who is right behind him.
So, if you’re learning about coding and you’re learning about programming, even from my videos on Python and where I teach you object orientated programming in Python, where you start to create apps, you can teach those skills to other people. You can go on these websites, these platforms, or reach out to people locally and offer private lessons and teach them. If you learn about Hello World, you can teach somebody and charge people.
Trust me, most people don’t know anything about coding, usually, when they’re looking up an instructor for coding. So, if you know things like if else statements or you know how to write simple things, like variables and functions, you can tutor those people and help them. In terms of your hourly rate, you can start it off low and start to increase as the time progresses. That’s something that I want you to play around with because if you’re afraid, you’re never gonna make more money.
You’re gonna be stuck at one level. So, stop being worried about what other people are thinking or what they think is a regular rate. I want you to keep upping your rate and if at a point, you’re not running into anybody who wants your business, then you can lower it, but don’t be stuck at one rate and trying to be comfortable because when you start being comfortable, that’s when you don’t make leaps ahead. And again, money is a good way to get freedom. Travel with your friends and family. Go out, watch movies. Hang out with your friends. Go out to freaking Paris, if you want to and pay for your friend’s family or girlfriend, or whoever and nobody has to worry about anything.
So, ultimately, it’s about the freedom that you get from money, not like you’re just greedy for money and that’s all you wanna do, right? So, those are few points I wanna make clear. Another website you can sign up to today is called Wyzant.com. Now, all of these tools may or may not work for you. You may or may not get hired because of these, but I have gotten a lot of business, especially when I was starting out, from those places. All of these platforms essentially allow you to market a certain skillset that you have and sends you people who are interested in that. So, you can tutor them/teach them and then help them get to where they wanna go. Let’s move on to the second way you can start making more money today. (funky music) This is not something I discovered on my own, though I had kind of hunches of it and I did a little bit of this, but I was really formally introduced to this by somebody named Ramit Sethi.
If you don’t follow him, you need to start following him because he offers a ton of amazing content and especially related to how you can start making more money and increase your income and he offers 98% of this stuff for free, okay? So, you have nothing to lose and almost everything he says is pretty on point. So, what the heck is a briefcase technique? Have you ever gone to an interview or had to actually meet with somebody to pitch your idea? Have you ever gone in unprepared? Have you ever thought about how you need to prepare or how much is good enough? How much preparation is necessary for increasing your chances at landing that job, landing that private lesson, landing that freelance or gig, right? Well, the answer to that is, there’s no amount of preparation that’s good enough, but if you over prepare, that’s always the best way to go about it.
The briefcase technique is about over preparing to an insane amount. So, rather than focusing and negotiating your salary with them, your hourly rate with them, if you focus more on the aspect of how you can bring more value into their company, what kind of things you can offer to them, you have pretty much a list of things that you can do to help them made already. And it’s also ingrained at the top of your head. You also know about the company, their competitors, how you can bring value to them, and how you can help them. If you can take out all of the guesswork from them, then them paying you just simply becomes a matter of triviality. It simply becomes a formality. That’s really what it comes down to because if you’ve done all of the homework. If you are so freaking over prepared when you go and meet that client, it’s actually more inconvenient for them to say no to you, to look for somebody else, because they know they’re not gonna get anybody as good as you, right? And this is a byproduct of just over preparing and over delivering.
So, that’s how you can land big clients, that’s how you can land more gigs as a freelancer, trying to teach private lessons, or whatever it is that you think that you can do. Moving on to the third way you can start to make more money today. Social media management. Almost nobody wants to do it because they’re like marketers, eh I don’t wanna deal with any of that. So, a lot of your local businesses, especially restaurants, need people who can manage their social media because they don’t want to deal with that. They wanna just deal with their business. They want to focus on whatever is going on, but a lot of them personally don’t want to deal with social media management.
So, you can reach out to them and tell them how you can bring more value to them. You don’t even need to talk about money when you start, okay? If somebody starts to bring in money, just tell them, hold on one second, I think I have a few offers. I have a few valuable suggestions that can help take your business to the next level and that’s what I would like to discuss. With a lot of these companies, they don’t wanna manage their social media. You can be the one to manage it. You can charge them from anywhere between $500 to $1000 a month. And especially, if you can get multiple clients, now you have a few thousand dollars or a few hundred dollars coming in every month. I don’t think that hurts anybody.
The fourth way you can start making more money today. (calming music) Building websites. If you go out and build websites or offer to build websites for people, that is something that can really help other businesses. And again, when you’re offering something valuable to other people, that is likely going to benefit you and help you as well. And people again, want to pay you for your services. So, this is a great one where you can combine your coding knowledge, so you can learn about programming and you can learn about coding, and you can use that to actually build websites. So now, you’re killing two birds with one stone.
You’re sharpening your coding skills and then you’re also building websites for other people at the same time and getting paid for it. Again, you can reach out to local businesses, offer a website with a flat fee, I don’t know, $1000 to $2000 or more. And then, you can offer social media management for a few hundred dollars a month. Again, you can start off lower to build a repertoire to put something on your portfolio, but eventually, I want you to start charging people more.
See, this is the great thing about having multiple sources of income. So then, you can negotiate a higher rate without freaking out so much. One of my friends went to apply for a job as an engineer and they were gonna give him, I don’t know, about $50,000 or something like that, a year. And he was so worried about losing that offer if he tried to charge them a higher price.
He said, instead of $50,000, can we do $55,000? And those guys literally went like okay deal. What does that mean? That means, that they could have offered him a ton more money, but because they’re like wow we’re getting an engineer? Holy crap. And that’s it. You just wanted five more thousand dollars. I mean, okay sure deal. So, a lot of the times people will try to low ball you.
It’s up to you to stand up and negotiate a higher, more intelligent price. But if you don’t do that, nobody will just hand you money because they’re gonna think, we’re gonna pay this guy. This guy’s worth exactly what he thinks he’s worth, or she. But I can understand from my friend’s perspective. Here he is, a student who’s making no money, trying to get a job. So, he essentially went from making $0 to $50,000. Now, that is a huge jump, but had he had multiple sources of income, he would have been able to negotiate a much better rate when he went in for the interview. So, try to focus on having multiple sources of income, rather than cutting, expending, and micromanaging and living a coupon based life. That’s not how you make more money. That’s not how you get more freedom. Okay, so the final, fifth bonus way. Get a subscription to Audible.
In today’s day and age, I totally understand when people say I don’t have enough time to read books because people are reading things constantly all the time. If you read books, that is the best way to gain more knowledge because think about it, a lot of these people spent years of their time, probably thousands to millions of dollars failing, researching, perfecting, optimizing something. And then they just hand it to you in a $10 book. And here we are going oh man, they’re ripping us off. These people are really ripping us off. Are you kidding me? Somebody who spent probably millions of dollars is now selling all their advice to help you. You’re gonna say they’re trying to scam you? I mean, I go to a gas station and spend more money buying bags of chips for a movie night than ten bucks or five bucks for something educational. And why do we do that? Why are we so hesitant to invest more money into knowledge? I mean, we’re not hesitant to throw money out on other things, a lot of the other things that we do. So, what is Audible? Audible is essentially audio books.
And why I am such, why I’m so crazy about Audible, and again, I’m not sponsored by Audible, I don’t have an affiliate link at the bottom to Audible, I’m not getting paid by Audible for this at all. Alright? I’m just trying to tell you that is an amazing service that can help you. How I got into this and how this channel even started is essentially due to Audible. I swear to God, without Audible, this channel wouldn’t exist and all this advice that you’re getting and probably all the tutorials you’ve followed, you wouldn’t have gotten, at least from me.
I am not a huge reader. I can’t sit there and read books. It takes me a long time and I just can’t do it, though I think that that’s the best way to acquire knowledge. But with Audible, you can listen to it. So, every time I drive, all I had to do was replace music with learning. So, every time I’m going for a drive, I’m going 30 minutes somewhere and coming 30 minutes back or 10 minutes somewhere, coming 10 minutes back, I’m listening to an audio book. And if an audio book is four hours long, listening to quite a bunch of it every ride. And eventually, you’ll finish a lot of them. And on Audible, they give you, for $14.95, they give you one credit every single month that’s recurring, which means that every month, you can get one to two books. And then sometimes they give you free credits as well. But let’s just sit here and do the math, right? Okay, so people freak out so much about subscriptions. $14.95? Oh my God, that is so insane. Here’s how I like to think of it. If you’re doing a private lesson and you’re teaching people something, that’s one hour of your time for the whole month or more.
Generally, you don’t charge $14, $15. You can start off with $20, $30 an hour. So, if you teach one lesson, just one lesson, you’re making more than enough money, almost twice the money that you pay for Audible. But let’s just sit here and do some math. So, let’s do $times 12. Essentially, you’d be paying somewhere around $180 a year for Audible, right? If you get one client because of listening to books, you can be making thousands of dollars. I personally have landed multiple clients because of Audible. This channel that you’re watching, right now as of this moment, I think I’m making two to three hundred dollars or more in ad revenue on YouTube. Did that pay off for Audible? I think so. If I just do very simple math, without anything else, that’s $3,600 dollars a year for me.
And again, Audible was $180 dollars. So again, if you want to make, if you want to increase your money exponentially, you need to take exponential steps. You can’t take baby steps and play safe your whole life. You need to experiment. Try to obtain more sources of income. Play around with negotiation, so a higher rate versus a lower rate. Learn about soft skills and marketing yourselves. And again, try doing those things. Just a quick recap, lessons, anything of expertise that you can offer to somebody else that you can teach anybody else. Okay? It could be building websites or whatever, right? Second thing, briefcase technique.
Go in over prepared for any interviews. Especially as a freelancer, that’s so helpful. You can put up your ads on Craigslist for anything that you can teach them, even juggling. You can teach people juggling. People will pay you for that. Three, social media management, local businesses, restaurants, call them. Go up to them. Talk with them. You’ll be able to, you’ll be surprised by how many people want your help, even lawyers, right? They want somebody to handle their social media. Okay? So, that’s your third way. Fourth way, build websites for people. Building websites is a great way for people to get their social presence, their web presence online, their identity online. People want that. People need that in today’s day and age, okay? Putting together a Yelp for them, Instagram, Twitter, all those things. You can offer it as a package, flat fee for a website, 1,000, $2,000. And then, for social media management, you can charge them a monthly rate, $500, $1000, whatever it is that you discuss with them. Fifth bonus way, read books.
Please, if there’s anything that I can give you, probably out of all of those things, the most important thing I can tell you is books. If you can get a subscription to Audible or you can start reading books, you will grow exponentially. Listen to Gary Vaynerchuk. Listen to Grant Cardone. These are great people with a ton of free content and advice on how you can market yourself better because that’s how you can make more money, when you market yourself better. So, listen to all these people on social media as well. Okay? And get some books from them. Some books I can recommend to you is How to Win Friends and Influence People. Amazing book. Will literally turn you into a better human being. I’m not kidding. Another book I can offer you is 10X by Grant Cardone. This book was phenomenal, got me a headstart, helped me a lot of the things that I’m doing today.
The third one, and I really should have mentioned this as the first one, Soft Skills by John Sonmez. And my channel exists almost entirely because of him. I mean, even think of the name. His channel’s name is Simple Programmer and my channel’s name is Clever Programmer. Okay so, my channel pretty much started because of John Sonmez. If you guys can go check out his content, check out his content. He’s awesome. But get the book Soft Skills. He goes over how you can market yourself better, how you can build better social, how you can be better at social media, how you can negotiate better prices, how you can become a software developer. So, he really teaches you a lot of the soft skills, rather than a lot of the technical skills, though he offers those as well. Okay so, if you’re a programmer or wanting to go into programming, then maybe that is a good book for you to start off with. Thank you guys so much for watching the video.
