The Internet has revolutionized life for many people and college students are no exception. Nowadays you can use the Internet to both save money and also to earn some extra cash while you are studying.
Tip 1. Don’t pay for an Internet connection before first checking to see whether or not you can get free Wi-Fi access on campus.
Tip 2. Don’t pay for those expensive calls home on your cell phone but instead use of the many free or very inexpensive Internet calling services (Voice over Internet Protocol or VoIP) such as Skype, SightSpeed or Jajah. Alternatively, rather than calling home regularly, send an email instead.
Tip 3. Use the Internet to make money by offering information of services online for a fee. If you have good grades then you could even think about offering such things as study tips for fellow students.
Tip 4. Earn money through affiliate programs. There are literally thousands of online marketers who are only too happy to offer you a share of their profits for promoting their products or services and this is a very easy way for even the complete novice to make some extra money.
Tip 5. Offer your skills online. If you have any web design skills or graphic skills then you can earn good money by offering website or graphic design services to webmasters. Alternatively, many webmasters are looking for content and, if your written English is reasonable, then you will find that it is very easy to earn money part-time by writing content on just about any subject you can think of.
Tip 6. Build websites and then flip them. The secret here is to pick a popular topic, build a website and get some traffic coming to it and then, rather than maintain it yourself, simply sell it on.
Tip 7. Sell items on eBay. eBay is the world’s largest auction site and it is very easy to make money selling new or used items on a regular basic through eBay.
These are just a few of the many ways in which you can use the Internet to help to fund your way through college and this is certainly something which every college student should be exploring today.
