This is awesome! I was selling like this on Poshmark a little while back, and need to start it back up again! I actually had quite a few sales just from doing it on the side. My biggest hurdle is finding items to list...my go to has been shopping at goodwill for brand name clothes that I can list for a higher price...

I'm a bit of a blogger junkie, truth be told. So many buttons and tools to play around with. My advice, choose the one thing you love doing most because that is also known as your "profitable niche". Why? Because when you love what you do then it will be impossible to give up. You have to decide on one niche or topic per blog. And you will eventually end up having more than one blog, trust me. When it gets you it grips you. SEO however is the time consuming, failure overcoming part of...

I know others source at goodwill and Salvation Army, but I don’t have time or patience to go hunt for stuff with 2 little ones. I found someone to buy wholesale PINK Victoria Secret items. I’ve sold some stuff from that box and I have lots of interest, it’s not selling as fast as I want it to. I did just buy another box from liquidation.com and it looks promising. I paid $500 with shipping for it. There’s a gorgeous dress with tags that sells in stores for $300. I have it listed for $175 and...

I was a professional blogger for eight years for a mental health website. Some of what I learned: 1) Have a social media presence and use it--this is an easy way to build up readership. 2) Know how SEO works. I hated this because it meant an end to my creative headlines--I have a journalism degree and know you have about one sentence to get your readers' attention--but a creative headline can't be searched for as easily as one that tells the reader exactly what they're looking for. 3) Grab...

Checkout 51, Savingstar You can do surveys and earn gift cards too. I have good luck on Pinecone and MyPoints and Microsoft rewards(I do their daily searches and quizzes. It only takes a few minutes in the morning and I earn enough points for a $10 gift card every month).

That sounds like a winner to me! My wife and I are going to start going to the Goodwill Stores around here again and picking some things up and selling them. We've done that with flea markets, garage sales. We used to ship a lot and had the mailing program on our computer to print out not only invoices for the items, but also the postage, etc. It would also divide all the expenses into the right categories. My wife wants to make an extra $1,500 a month. I think that's possible. You've got...

Only a pleasure @Tam . The important part is to get started and you may want to replace the "ghost writer" with research. The more you research the bigger your knowledge vault will get, and in time you will surprise yourself with your own writing. Creating and owning your own writing work will put you on a whole new level of professional recognition. Wishing you all of success and prosperity.

I have been thinking about starting a blog and had the thought to focus on mental health life. I am a mental health consumer with a few "labeled" conditions. The blog would be related to me and my life trials, tribulations, successes, experiences and how I handle the situations that I encounter. I'm curious to know what your are on this subject. How successful were you with the blog you had related to mental health??

I was working as an independent contractor for an already-established website, so I had a bit of an advantage. I was with the website for about eight years and by the end of the gig I was earning about $20 per post flat rate. I don't know how many readers I had, but the website itself had about 1 million visitors per day. My advice is to freelance for other websites and build up an audience, and in the author bio to direct readers to your website. WritersMarket.com usually has a good list of...

Deon: You've got potential, but your openings aren't very attention-grabbing. However, they're excellent for SEO, and given the choice between the two, I would recommend going for SEO because that's what drives traffic to your blog. I don't know where I heard the four-second bit, but I've found it to be true. You've got a good niche, and you cover your topic very well. My advice would be to have an SEO first sentence, and an attention-grabbing second sentence. Give the reader a reason to...

I feel your pain--I'm on SSDI and SSI as well. I'm fortunate to live in an area that has one of the lowest costs of living in the country--Indianapolis, Indiana. I used to have a lucrative career as a freelance writer for a website--I made about $140 a month. I've found mystery shopping to be a good source of income--I got my start with Field Agent and have branched out. I'm fortunate enough to be able to work part-time in a restaurant, but that incurs the risk of losing SSI.

@BeckAtsila I have focused a lot on SEO and I agree that it does help to drive traffic, however, it is not always so great at getting the readers attention. I find personally that when I focus too much on SEO, I tend to write a lot less personally and end up with a sub-par written piece. Lately, I have been trying to focus more on being more personal and writing my blog posts as if I am talking to someone. That way, I focus more on providing value and less on the SEO. Don't get me wrong, I...

It's not just about the cash out amount. It's more of it takes for ever to make enough to cash out. I mean most surveys are paying less the $7.25 per hour and expecting you to do an hour long survey for $2.00. At that rate it takes months to be able to making a penny. There's a group I've been doing it for and I've been with them for like 7 or more years and it takes forever to get anywhere with them. The amounts never go up either. I'm not trying to get rich but do need atleast $100 per...

Thanks for the kind words, I'll be working on those openings. Appreciate your honesty, and do agree with sticking to SEO. However, you're quite right with the opening as it turns a visitor into a reader. I may have neglected the opening of post content a little. But I shifted focus on the post featured image, which is also the first thing displayed as social posts for instance. Just a tactic I'm testing, to create curiosity through graphic design. Thus far I have to admit seeing an...

I hear you layitlo, and understand your frustration. Been through the mill myself over the last few years.

I used to do surveys too but they became too time consuming and the amount of points you get doesn't justify the time. But I use Ibotta when shopping and I've made about $250 over a year and a half. I also use Mypoints when shopping on line. Mypoints is great.

I use InstaGC, Swagbucks, and Prolific Academic to make a few hundred extra dollars per month. Prolific Academic is the only site I will do surveys on since they only give you ones that you qualify for. On InstaGC and Swagbucks I stick to things like watching videos, clipping coupons, signing up for newsletters, clicks, that kind of thing.

That sounds ok. But if took that long to make $250 it's not worth it. People begging for money make more then that in a week from what I have been hearing. I need something better then that. With the way things have been going what I keep finding hasn't been worth doing. I don't want to be rich but I have to find better.

I think you will find Lumen5 extremely useful, especially with turning blog posts into videos. But do try and keep videos between 1 and 2 minutes, while focusing on key points. You may find that uploading a high resolution (1920 x 1080) thumbnail sometimes doesn't work with YouTube because the file will exceed the maximum allowed 1 Meg. For that I use Canva, and after designing the thumbnail you just download it as a JPEG file. This way the image does not exceed the allowed 1 Meg. I'm using...

Have you heard of imoney? You earn cash, it adds up fast and you’re not doing surveys or scanning or seeds or anything like that. You’re doing simple tasks involving the Apple App Store. It is for iPhone users only and you can make extra for referrals on top of what you’re already making for doing the tasks. This is probably my favorite one and I’ve done a LOT of apps!
