Make Money Fast

We already have a job. But as there is no increase in sight, why not round off the end of the month? Testimonials from those who found how to find money easily.

Transport Packages

I did not know the crowdshipping – the fact of being delivered by a stranger – before clicking by chance on a pub on Jweby, a site that was looking for “deliverymen”. I often go to Spain, my family lives there, and I travel to Europe for work, in short I move a lot. So why not?

A little game early, I create my account, I register the dates of my travels and I set my own prices, not too high if I want it to work: 0 € for an urgent courier to deliver in the day, 20 € for a package of clothes …Obviously, orders do not fall right away.

But the first, after a month, causes the following because my profile is well noted. It suits me because it’s simple: in order not to waste time, I collect and deliver parcels at the airport, and I only accept open packages to be sure I do not carry anything. My earnings: 80 € per month on average. They are transferred to my Jweby kitty, I use them to give me travel souvenirs or to treat me to duty free. 

Make DIY

For my wedding, zapping on wedding invitation and deco sites, I’m horrified by the prices. As I am quite good at everything manual, I decide to make the decoration myself, for fifty people. I watch tutorials on the internet, I take a woodcut class …

And I’m doing well! I draw the announcements, I use driftwood for the mark-squares, scraps of fabric for the pennants … Every day, everyone is amazed. Compliments motivate me. It makes me think and I start. My job allows me to be available at 18 hours, I start to create other objects, a dozen. A few boxes for gifts, frames for photos … I put them online on a classifieds site, I expose them in garage sales on weekends.

For a year, I just made a few euros, until a couple of friends contacted me to order: remembering what I had done for mine, they want me to take care of the whole deco of their wedding on the theme of the beach. My first big order. My earnings: They paid all the material and I asked for 300 € for my work. We got a sofa!

Make Ephemeral Tattoos

Night market, one night on vacation, two girls offer glittering tattoos, fairies and balloons on their hands to kids. It’s a tilt: the same thing for adults, with, instead of fairies, logos of luxury brands or figures like Master Yoda. To go in the evening, it would be great.

I want a concept … So I’m looking for the right material: a cosmetic glue, glitter of all colors and especially the ideal paper for my stencils. I train on my girlfriends and once I master technique, I create a Bimbo Tattoo account on Facebook and Instagram.

A friend’s friend spots the photos: she organizes an evening in her shop and would like me to set up a workshop. That night, I tattoo strangers for the first time. I was recontacted for the launch of a fanzine. From a dressing room to a birthday party, I now have two to three events a month. My earnings: By deducting the price of the material, I am about 75 € each time. I do not try to make a living, I work, but after a workshop, I have some tickets for my weekend outings.

Cooking For Strangers

VizEat connects tourists or natives who want to dine at home. I cook well, my roommates are leaving and we have a major asset: a large terrace. We sign up. Some profiles present themed meals, worthy of “Almost perfect dinner”, others, menus of pros. We will never be able to compete with a 3-star. We put rather on our good mood … and our famous terrace.

We saw it right: last month, it was she who seduced our first guests, a group of girlfriends who were celebrating a bachelor party. Our winnings: For this evening, deducting the price of the ingredients, we collected € 80, which we finally left in a common pot for the roommate. We intend to start again, managing requests according to our schedules: we do not want it to become a constraint.

Put Your Home On Airbnb

I live in La Rochelle, but when my boss offers me to supervise the opening of a shop for eight weeks in Montpellier, I do not hesitate a second. It supports on-site hosting, but I still have to pay my rent here. I feel like I’m wasting my money …

I Feel Like I’m Wasting My Money …

For my girlfriends, an empty two-room apartment in the center of La Rochelle, it’s more of a way to win: “Put it on Airbnb! “In three minutes, I do the math: renting his apartment at 40 € per night, it would … 2,240 € in eight weeks!

My owner, who is also my aunt and who owns the entire building, agrees. To do well, I look after the announcement: in addition to a detailed presentation, I make a request to the site for a photographer pro shoot the apartment. I quickly have requests but to be quiet, I organize first appointments on Skype, just to know the tenants better. A few days before my departure, everything is planned: ten days of rental to a couple, a weekend to Italian and two weeks to a student who does an internship at the aquarium of the city.

I gather my stuff in the dressing room, I leave the wifi code and the notice of the oven in sight … For the keys, I have a deal with my neighbor: she welcomes my “guests” and calls me in case of trouble. And then my aunt is not far either. My earnings: I did not rent my flat non-stop for eight weeks … But I still made € 1,100. Not so bad ! I will start again.

Provide A Concierge Service

It’s a girlfriend who makes me discover Welkeys. The principle is simple: to be paid to manage the delivery of leased apartment keys to sites like Airbnb. In six months, she won € 500. More than enough to make me want to try. Registration on the site is free, but I must provide ID and a clean criminal record, and then have an interview. Quickly, I landed my first mission: a couple who sublets his two-room during the holidays.

When the tenants arrive, I just have to give them the keys. And when they leave, check that they have not brought the hi-fi system. I spend a lot of time checking the details, I do not want to make any mistakes … And little by little, I know how to go fast, not to miss anything.

Today, as I have good contacts with different owners, my profile is well noted and the requests are more and more regular. My studies leave me a lot of free time, so in addition to handing the keys, I also do some housework and I bring clean clothes in the apartment. It is planned by Welkeys: the more I do, the more I am paid. My earnings: 350 € in three months. All transactions are done via the site, it is simple and secure. And I do not intend to stop.

Create Jewelry

During the day, I am project manager, but in the evenings and weekends, I create jewels. Two years ago, when I bought a pair of earrings, I clicked: I’m sure I could make them myself. I learn about materials, I try and very quickly, it becomes a passion.

But a passion that is expensive. Fine stones, tools … I have to finance the equipment, and the few orders from my girlfriends are not enough. So I’m doing research to launch my online sales site. It seems complicated, until I discover Etsy. This is what I need: immediate visibility around the world and a back office where I can manage my page easily. I create my brand, Mitsy Sunday, and little by little, the first requests arrive.

My earnings: € 4,000 over one year … that I reinvest almost entirely in raw materials. Without this money, making my jewelry would cost me too much. But thanks to this turnover, I can have fun without feeling guilty.

Rent Your Cellar

When I move into my apartment, I discover a huge cellar, which I almost do not use. Today, we exchange everything: his sofa, his drill and even his toilet, so I’m sure I can do something in this space. I inquire on the internet: via the site Ouistock, you can rent his garage or cellar to individuals. In chatting with a counselor, I learn that the registration is free and that I just have to declare the rental tax.

I start: I describe my cellar, set a price based on other offers and I wait for the proposals … Nothing for weeks. I end up zapping, until I receive a request. Eric, a student from my neighborhood, is going to Beijing for six months and is looking for a furniture storage. My earnings: I receive his transfer every month, or 450 € for six months rental. I hope to find a replacement on his return.
