How to Make Money in Between Jobs - Selling on eBay

Does finding deals your think? Is shopping for bargain items floods your brain with dopamine? Is so, this one is for you.

eBay is an e-commerce site like Amazon.com but retail sellers can sell second-hand items on eBay, unlike Amazon who only allows brand new products.

Alternative to eBay

There are a lot of eBay alternatives. You can use Kijiji, Facebook Marketplace or even Craigslist. These sites will allow you to re-sell things and the great news is they will not get a commission from your sales.

The principle of buying low and selling at a retail or higher price still stands, but keep in mind that you will have to take care of your shipping and handling, returns, payment security, etc. if you use another marketplace aside from eBay. In addition, you might have a harder time to scale up your business. 

How to Make Money On eBay?

To make money on eBay, you just need to find high demand items that are selling for less than its retail price then sell it on eBay for a profit.

Usually, eBay “professionals” buy their stuff from flea markets, thrift stores, Kijiji, etc. but you can definitely buy from retail stores especially those who are doing a clearance sale as well.  

A word of advice learned from my rookie mistake. 

I thought all I need is to buy a lot of bargain items thinking that I can easily sell it on eBay for a profit just like that. The truth is I actually need to know if the item is on-demand and if its eBay “selling price” would give me a profit after counting in the shipping and listing cost. 

I can assure you if you ignore this truth, you will lose a lot of money and you will gain a lot of trash. I advise you to read my article on How to Price Items on eBay to avoid my rookie mistakes.

Become a Blogger or Vlogger

Here is the truth! –  and you may take it or leave it but a lot of people make a full-time living from blogging.  I’m recommending this because it is one of the easiest ways to make money online. You just need to spend about 2 to 3 hrs. everyday to grow your blog and then after 4-12 months, it can become a passive income.

What is blogging/vlogging?

Blogging is content creation for the purpose of educating, entertaining or informing using words and images. on the other hand, Vlogging I using videos.

What do you need to start blogging?

Education

Blogging/vlogging is straight-forward and easy but there are some important things that you need to learn to make your blogging effective and profitable.

There are a lot of online courses out there that will teach you how to blog. Personally I’ve used Wealthy Affiliate, Shaw Academy, and uDemy to learn all the ins and outs of blogging.  

Domain Name

You need a domain name because it will be your very own URL to your website. You need a URL because your followers will not be able to find your site without it.

Think of it as your home address. If you are hosting a party, you will need to give your visitors your home address in order to reach your place. No home address = no visitors = no fun. Likewise, no URL = no site visitors = no fun!.

Some of the most popular Domain Registrars are Namecheap and GoDaddy.

Web Hosting Service Provider

Web hosts are servers where your site information is stored.

Basically, your site visitors will have to contact your web hosting service provider first then your provider will find your site in the server then send the information to your visitor.

You can imagine them as a condominium that houses your condo unit. The condominium will be the server while your condo unit is your site. Before your visitors get into your unit, they must first inquire about your condo management. The management will then check the info provided by your visitor before sending them to your unit.  

Top Web Hosting Service Provider includes Host Gator and Blue Host.


Website Builder

A website builder is a software that allows you to design your blog without the need for coding.

Best Website Builders are WordPress, Wix, Squarespace, etc.

I know what you are thinking. How come there is no one single company that offers all?

Actually, each of the companies that I mentioned, although specializes in one area, offers all of your blogging needs. However, if you are looking for the ULTIMATE All-in-One Blogging needs then I implore you to use Wealthy Affiliate.

What is Wealthy Affiliate and What is Included In It?
How to Make Money on blogging/vlogging?

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is the most common way is to monetize your blog. All you need to do is to find companies within your niche that have affiliate programs, apply to their program, then promote their product through the affiliate link they have provided.

If you readers (called leads) buy the product using your affiliate link then you will make a commission.

Google Ad Sense

Another way to monetize your blog is by inserting Google Ads all throughout your post and blog.

In my experience, Google will pay you when 1000 people saw the Ads or if they click the Ads. It is really hard to predict how much you will make using this method because Google does not disclose how they calculate your earning. Nevertheless, you, as a blogger, only need to worry one thing; SITE Traffic.

Partner with Companies

This method is harder to pull because most companies will require you to get a certain amount of traffic each day plus they might ask you to change your layout, content presentation, etc to fit their company image. In addition, you need to directly talk and negotiate advertising contract.  

Who is this for?
  • It is for everyone who can write.  No English – No Worry. There are many grammar software that you can use. Besides, blogging is more effective if you write as if you are just talking to a person and that doesn’t require perfect grammar.
  • Like to share your knowledge or experience, love to add value to people’s life, etc, blogging is for you.
  • Understand that blogging is not a quick-rich-scheme, rather it is a work a lot now, passive income later.
Why do it?
  • It is very straightforward. You just need to get your website set-up, learn how to use off-page and on-page SEO, regularly write an article that adds value to the lives of others and make a clear call to action to click your affiliate link
  • You can scale up your profit.  The more you write and advertise, the bigger your income will going to be
  •  A mature blog page can become a source of passive income
Challenges to expect
  • It will take a while before you can create a consistent income (unless you do PPC)
  • Your initial work will not yield the desired results which can become very discouraging.
  • There is a good probability that you will have to learn search engine marketing, social media marketing, and search engine marketing to fully maximize your site’s effectiveness.

Become an Online Course Instructor

Ideas are the currency of the twenty-first century. In order to succeed, you need to be able to sell your ideas persuasively. This ability is the single greatest skill that will help you accomplish your dreams.

Talk Like Ted (Book)

Indeed, with the advent of the computer and internet technology, ideas can now be easily packaged and be sold. Another interesting fact is the self-development industry is raking in billions of dollars

What is Selling Online Courses?

In today’s time, people are hungry to learn new skills. Everyone believes that if you want to get an edge against someone then you should never stop learning and you should continue acquiring new and honing existing skills.

Before the age of the internet, you can only do this through enrolling in a school and physically attending lectures, but you can now purchase online lectures and listen to it at your own convenience.

Because of this behavior towards the learning and availability of the technology to share ideas online, becoming an online instructor is becoming more of  a trend and selling online courses is becoming a very lucrative industry.

Where to Sell Your Courses?

How to Make Money From Being and Online Instructor?

Making money on selling courses is pretty simple. All you need to do is to create a course then either sell it on your own or sell it through different online course platforms.

The advantage of selling it on your own is you can set the price of your courses any way you want. On the flip side, selling your own courses means you need to worry about marketing it.

The advantage of selling it through an online course platform is they will do the marketing for you, but the disadvantage is you don’t really have control over how much it will be sold.

Who is this for?
  • It is for everyone who loves to add value to other people’s lives
  • Those who love to develop and grow themselves

  • It can be intimidating to speak in front of a camera

Start a Fulfilled by Amazon Business

Did you know Amazon is the biggest American company based on company valuation? Did you also know Amazon’s biggest revenue source is not from selling things online but by collecting middleman fees from its third-party seller?

How to Make Money on FBA 

FBA is a lot more complicated than the ones that I already mentioned. For instance, you will have to determine what to sell on Amazon then figure out where to source them. After then you need to know how to list your product on Amazon else it will not be found. In addition, you need to know how to market it.

I know, I sound negative, but here is the fun part. Once you overcome the learning curve, you can make a lot from this business. I am not exaggerating this part. Some full-time FBA entrepreneurs can make a 6 digit monthly income!

Who is this for?
  • Those who have experience and knowledge in product logistics or willing to learn it
  • Those who are ambitious yet action takers. You know the saying: High risk, High Reward. Learning how to do FBA involves a lot of risk but the potential reward is astonishing
  • Curious minds. FBA business is both Science and Art. You can improve your sales by checking the numbers and you need to follow your intuition to get the upper hand against your competition.
Why do it?
  • You can make a legit 6-digit work from home business
  • Once you overcome the initial learning curve, all you need to do is to scale up to increase your revenue
  • Be in a retail business without worrying for storage, shipment, and logistic

Challenges to expect

  • FBA is quite complex so learning how to do it can be challenging
  • Identifying what items to sell and where to source them
  • Creating a product listing that converts
