Sometimes, we are in a situation in life when we need a quick cash. Whether is for an unexpected party outfit, a sudden repair of households or anything that we faced in life and we need a fast cash, then here you go. I wrote you a simple guide to get a quick cash when you need it fast. I recently been in that situation myself, and instead of stressing or crying- you just have to get your shizzle in your own hands and not let some unimportant disturbances let you down. If you living on a single income salary, it’s hard and when someone demands a money right now, chase you with emails for any payments or your bills remain unpaid- I want to help you get quick cash when you most need it. You should also read about saving money post and also how to turn your passion into an income.
This may be a bit daunting form but you can earn from £20 to £100 from a single session. You can do surveys online earn points, or you can join people in a special gathering where you will receive notepad with questions, and you do them in person. Sometimes it includes doing interviews where you talk about your experiences with something, or testing products at home for a short period and giving your opinion. Try websites like research opinions or simply google cash for surveys and you will find so many!
Ebay, Gumtree, Shpock, Depop
This may sound obvious, but a good clear out will not only help to clear your had, but I made £600 just by selling clothes and small items within two weeks. Determination and closely watching auctions but also few advises of how to eBay items, helped me to achieve it. Feature items on Thursday between 5pm-8pm for 4 days or 10days and Sunday all day for 7 days. This gives you extra exposure and people most likely look for eBay during Sundays so any auction that finishes on Sunday ( preferable evenings -the better) for other apps like Gumtree/Shpock/Depop the more information the better. Look for clear images and quick and clear item description so the title. ( same apply to eBay) Don’t be scared to sell anything you think you won’t use as you will be surprised what people are buying- list it and let the magic happen.
Upcycle furniture/Sell furniture
If you have any DIY skills, craft skills etc. and have an old chair or table you think people won’t buy it- upcycle and sell as a special featured item. I once had a chair that I got of someone, I have repainted it and sold for £50 and the more valuable item you have, the better of course. Worth to visit any local Sunday carbon or antique shop and see if you can find any bargain that you can turn into something really cool. Pinterest and my own DIY category have plenty of ideas. Like, check this post about upcycling stool, lamp and candlesticks.
Look after pets
This is better during holidays like Christmas, Summer or Easter but still, there are plenty of people who travel and need someone who will care about their pet while they away. As an owner of two cats, I totally know how important is to find someone who can look after my cats while I am away. Register yourself online, tell how much you love animals and your experience with animals. Best to just do for a local area rather expanding further in case if you have to be there early morning and you don’t drive.
Something, I wouldn’t be able to do it 😉 but if your grammar and spelling are excellent- consider of proofreading books, magazines and perhaps help bloggers with their texts. I have met loads of people who charge for this services and you can make from £10-£30 per single text depends on the length and amount of work.
Become a TV Extra
Nope, no need to look like a model or have any particular acting skills. To become a TV Extra you just register yourself on their website and go for an interview. Usually, they pay around £100 per day. Days can be long and starts early, but who said acting is easy huh, 😉 It’s usually repeating certain scenes multiple times and usually you will be in a crowd with other people or that nurse or waitress in the background and if you lucky, you may spot yourself on TV!
If you don’t have any particular skills or nothing to sell but you really need cash quick then think of a quick loan you can get. Quick loans allow you to lend you the amount you need if your application is approved and you can pay back later. To apply for Online loans just simple visit their website, they have a bunch of friendly advisers to help you with any query. Just be responsible and read carefully T&C or speak to any financial advisory.
My friend recently told me how she makes money by taking pictures of others. I was a little surprised as a blogger myself who works with photographers, I have really really high expectations for a photography and my photographer. However, I need my photos for a professional branding -my own and brand I work with. Taking pictures of couples, sweet kids sessions or helping newbie bloggers? I know that perhaps many professional photographers would jump eat me right now, but for many people who just want a sweet Christmas photo of their child, or romantic shoot in park with beloved one- for them paying for shoot £150-£200 maybe a bit too much and they would never accept £10-20 per session while you can use your good camera and snap few photos! If you have photoshop skills that even better. Remember, that many people are clueless about photography and if you own good camera- even if you not trained as a photographer but do know some photography then the world is your oyster.
Many brands these days are looking for a freelance writer to write their blog content (blogs/news/social media) as advertising company may be charging too much. If you are good at writing, even if you are not a blogger- use that as your advantage. Search for freelance content writing phrase online and you will be surprised how many you will find. It’s an instant cash like with fiverrr and you can set your charges from $5 to anything you want depends on your advance writing skills.
Use your skills.
Again, similar to point 9. and point 3. but any other skills you have – use them, girl. Are you great at makeup? Offer that in your local area, or can you cut hair? Offer it to neighbours. Can you paint pretty pictures or faces? ask friends and family if they know anyone who needs as bday or any occasion gift? Can you decorate? Offer help to decorate a wedding or someone’s house. Can you sew? Get out that sewing machine and offer on Facebook that you can do any alterations etc.
a little of a personal note…
Remember, you can make money anytime if you want to or willing to work extra hard. Sometimes we face a situation when we feel like we are at the edge, but remember that we not-I have been there, faced it and turn the situation into my advantage and it made me super strong! So, don’t be scared to make your own money, be independent and work hard 🙂
