Most of us while studying in a high school or college have wondered how we can earn extra pocket money at least once if not often. But we have no idea where to start looking. So, to help you out with this dilemma here are some of the things that might help you in stepping forward towards being independent and self sufficient.

#. Freelance work/Internships: -

Well today’s world is all about freelancing, there exist many start-ups that can’t afford to hire an employee, though they need some help. So make them an offer they can’t resist. Do something that you are interested in or want to develop a career in. Also remember, all this freelancing gives you more experience in the work you’re expected to do when you have a hardcore job.

Freelance work is very good way to earn money for someone who is in high-school and take an interest in studying. I have myself seen some of the people posting their home-works and home-assignments on freelance websites to get them done by paying somebody.

#. Completing surveys: -

Companies always know what their costumers need and what they think of their products, but how do they know all of this. The answer is simple, by conducting surveys. Now how is this related to you, well , there are some websites that do this job for companies. Some of these websites also pays people for getting a survey done. So do go check them out.

Some of the famous survey websites are: - Swagbucks, Toluna, OnePoll, Lifepoints, I-Say.

#. Getting Paid to search Google: -

Yes, you heard it right you can also get paid to search Google! Well there is a theory behind this that there are some people who want to keep track of the data people search on internet. Being not big enough to contact google, they get help of some of these websites. They have an extension or a web page which they request you to add to your browser, and then for every search you earn a specified reward.

Qmee rewards you for searching in Google, Bing or Yahoo. You just have to install a simple add-on to your browser and when you conduct a search there may be a few sponsored results alongside your normal search.

#. Learn investment: -

Warren buffet once said, “I was too late to step into the market, I should had started my investments at 16!. Well if he is sayings that, what is taking you so long. There are some books and PDF’s where people have noted down their experiences while trading and investing in stock market, which are really worth checking.

There are some Telegram channels that do share these books and PDF’s. So do join these channels for knowing more about this zone.

#. Start a Website: -

Starting a website with Bluehost takes less than 20 minutes, costs hardly anything and can be done by an 82 year-old. It only takes a bit of plugging on social media to get your first visitors, and there are plenty of ways to monetize your site.

#. Disney Vault: -

To keep the demand high across generations, Disney Studios carefully restrict the supply of some home release classics. They are locked away in the 'vault' for 8-10 years before being released for a short unspecified time.

Buy them in this window at normal retail price and you can turn a nice profit when they go off sale for another decade or so.

For example, in 2011 you could buy Beauty and the Beast on Blu-ray 3D for just £24.99. In just a couple of years it was on Amazon for a staggering £74.99!

Importantly, not all Disney releases are subject to the vault and only the true classics will maintain such demand.

Right now, there are just 2 titles out of the vault which I would recommend snapping up. They are Bambi Diamond Edition Blu-ray and The Lion King Diamond Edition Blu-ray.

#. Write e-Book: -

If students are good at something, it's researching and writing. With the Amazon Kindle store, anyone can publish an eBook and make money.

And the Kindle app is now available on almost any device so your global market is huge!

List your book for £1.49 - £6.99 and you earn 70% of the sale. Considering Amazon is the ultimate selling machine (and remember people are looking to spend), that is a fantastic deal.

The key to success with eBooks is to create value and write non-fiction. Simply bundling information, you have researched and compiled on a common problem (e.g. 'secrets' to finding a job) and then presenting it in an easy to digest format (an eBook) justifies someone spending a few quid on it.
