Your virtual assistant services team has come up with some great ideas to earn extra cash. We realize that there are some people not interested in starting a virtual assistant services business and may not have those particular skills. Therefore, we wanted to present some ideas to get those creative juices flowing and in hopes it will help you to achieve extra cash. Who couldn’t use that with this yucky economy and many of these can be done from home too. We hope you are successful in your endeavors.
Become a rolling advertisement.
Consider turning your car into a rolling billboard. There are many companies that are willing to pay to have your car wrapped with their advertisements. You’ll find plenty on Google.
Sell parts of your body.
I’m sure that got your attention. Check into programs that need your plasma, hair, eggs and sperm. Do a Google search to see where these clinics are located, give them a call and get started.
Perform music at weddings and other functions.
There are many churches that do not have staff or volunteers for their music. An experienced and talented pianist can make pretty good money doing this on the weekends. Go check out your local churches or put an advertisement in the local paper or craigslist.
You might be surprised at how many people do not know the basics of MS Word, Excel or other software applications. You might have computer experience that people seek and are willing to pay for. The ideas are endless here. Try using Backpage, craigslist and other free advertising sites to get started.
Start a laundry service.
You know how busy people are and how they would love to have a service like this! Offer to pick up and drop off at their office or home. You might even consider adding ironing to this list as well and that should pull in even more money. You might consider offering this to new mothers as a gift too.
Drive people to the airport or run errands.
You must have reliable transportation and be on time all the time. You can quickly obtain happy clients and once word is out, you’ll probably have to turn down business. Also, you can reduce your taxable income from mileage and the last time I checked, mileage was at 58.5 cents per mile. Incorporate into your errand business; grocery store, post office, pharmacy and dry cleaning.
Gardening and yard services.
This one is great especially for the spring and summer months and for adults or kids. If you have all the necessary equipment it would be fairly easy to get started. Go around your neighborhood and post flyers with your contact information and rates. Additionally you could offer to haul junk to the dump, yard clean up and the planting of vegetables.
Dog walking and/or pet sitting services.
You could start within your own neighborhood or apartment community and would cost nothing to get started. Ask your local veterinarian if they would allow you to post a flyer offering your rates and contact information.
Well there you have it and we sincerely hope you can obtain some cash with these ideas. We will be back with another list soon, so please stay tuned.
