Ready? Let’s go.
5. Build an App for Smartphones or Tablets
If there is something that the current explosion of tablets and smartphones has shown us, it is that apps are here to stay. Apps in fact can be as varied and diverse as the number of people that own the devices they run onto.
On top of that, companies like Apple and its popular App Store have already paid billions of dollars of app sales profits to developers of all kind, ranging from large game companies to (yes, you guessed right) individual developers.
However, the vast majority of people who would like to develop a smartphone or tablet app gets discouraged due to their lack of technical knowledge. This mentality is completely wrong. The big secret to develop an app that is successful, is to actually have an idea about an app that people need and will want to buy.
What about actually building the app you say? Well, there are countless developer on the web (mostly on freelance sites) who are willing to develop applications for anyone who pays them. The cost of developing an app can range anywhere from $200 to $50,000 depending on the kind of app you want to develop of course. But developing apps like games and such rarely costs more than one or two thousand dollars.
So, if you have an idea that you believe will make for a great app, make a plan and outline for it and the head to any of the most popular freelancing websites to find your developer. If the budget you might require for your app is higher than you expected or planned, then it might be worthy considering a personal loan or other financial help in order to cover for those expenses. Additionally, don’t forget to sign a noon-disclosure agreement with your developer before starting development of your app.
6. Make Extra Money from Your Videos
You don’t need to be a Spielberg or a Malick in order to make money from your movies. In fact, in order to earn some cash from your videos, all you need is to have a camera and and internet access.
The reason for this is of course, YouTube, the social networking video service where virtually anyone can upload and share video with the world.
Have you ever wondered why videos that are considered “silly” or “cute”, like cat videos or baby videos keep popping up on YouTube? It’s not only that some people just have nothing to do and choose to upload those videos, but mostly it is due to the fact that thousands of people like to see these videos, and these views in the end convert to cash for video uploaders thanks to the advertisements displayed in them.
So if you have a funny video or you have one or many ideas for videos that you think could be interesting for people either because they are funny or instructional, simply upload them to YouTube and after you get some views and see if your video is successful, you can sign up for Google Adsense and also check the box that allows commercials to run on your video before it starts. After that, every time that someone viewing your video clicks on that ad, you will get a small commission which, by the end of the month can build up to a decent amount of change.
