Everyone things that they don't wanna use anymore. The unused skateboard you got as a gift on your 8th birthday, the good-as-new tee you don't wear anymore and even the sneakers which no longer fit. It's time to get rid of these unwanted things. Not only it would make your room cleaner and a little bit more spacious (just a little bit), it will also provide your hungry wallet with some cash and maybe then you will be able to throw a better party.

And the work you can do in online freelancing is not limited by anything. You can do writing, make music, design websites, translate, transcribe, proofread and even do stupid things like witchcraft. You just need to attract the person enough to you. Some of the websites where you can begin are Fiverr, Freelancing and Upwork.

Managing Social Media

Getting a store online increases its sale right? You just need to explain this to a nearby shop owner. Whether it's a cafe, a lounge or even a grocery store, an online portfolio would definitely boost its profits. The only thing you need is searching for a shop owner who would pay for creating and managing their social media. Make a website for them, make an Instagram account and shoot some exciting photos and videos of their store. You can even advertise online if they pay you enough. They'll get a profit increase and you'll get some cash. A win-win situation for both.

Organisation pays the website money to display their advertisements on the articles on their website. And those articles are to be written by the bloggers. So as the number of views on the article increases, the number of views on the ads increases simultaneously. And you get paid as per the views of your article. Some websites even allow readers to tip the blogger if they like the article. As you keep writing, the audience increases and your income keeps on increasing too. Websites like Hubpages allow writers to work with them and earn some money on the side.

You talking to him would enhance his speaking skills and get your account filled with some bucks.
