If you own a smartphone, there is a good chance that you’re already spending a lot of time on your phone on a daily basis. Wouldn’t it be nice to take advantage of these tools and make money out of it?
Believe it or not, you can earn a decent income with just your phone and an internet connection. As a matter of fact, many people are doing it already. The beauty of this is that the pie is more than big enough for everybody, as there are tons of apps out there that can bring in a good amount of cash.
Whether you are looking for quick cash or make money long-term, here are some of the best ways to earn money using apps.
There are plenty of market research apps out there that can help you earn money from your smartphone. However, iPoll is one of the better ones out there. You can earn through the app by taking surveys, completing missions in retail or grocery stores, or writing on your diaries (i.e. dairy consumption for three consecutive days, etc.).
To join, register with your basic information, and input your shopping preferences and consumer habits. This will help them find missions and tasks that are suited for you. You will receive alerts (based on your preferences and geographical locations) based on the availability of tasks that are suited to your preference. The best thing about this app is that the tasks for market research are highly customized to the participants’ preferences. Therefore, you get to participate in market research that interests you so you have fun while making money.
You can earn rewards that can be redeemed as cash through PayPal or gift cards. Another amazing perk is that you will be automatically entered into their quarterly sweepstakes of $10,000 cash.
Deliver Takeout Food
Earn as much as $15 per hour by delivering takeout food with Door Dash. Unlike other rideshare companies, you can use any car with this app, provided it’s an insured vehicle. Also, some areas and cities allow their riders to use bikes and scooters when delivering the goodies. Do not fret if you do not own a car because you can still make money with this app.
You must be at least 18 years old to be their rider, with a driver’s license, clean driving record, and of course, a smartphone. You will also be responsible for the parking, gas, and tolls when making your deliveries – do keep that in mind before you sign up.
You can also check out other delivery apps like Postmates (for anything, but mostly takeout food) and Instacart (for groceries), if you want more options.
Selling Your Old Clothes
Got a lot of used clothes, shoes, and bags you don’t use anymore? Are you looking for a place to drop them off? Ever considered selling them? Apps like Flyp let you sell your old and used clothes and turning them into instant cash.
The app lets you connect to their pool of independent professional sellers, who will do the selling for you. There is not a lot of work on your end as the sellers will handle the listing, pricing, negotiating with buyers, packing, and shipping of each and every item that you want to sell.
All you need to do is take photos of the stuff you want to sell and create a “Lot” on their app. Each pro will set the price for your items along with their commission. You will then review your ‘Pro applicants’ and choose the best price for your items.
The good news about their system is that all sellers are covered by the Flyp Protection Policy. This is how you can guarantee that you will be paid for every sale made on your clothes and other items.
Rent Out Your Car
If your car spends more time in your garage than on the road, then you can rent it out and earn from it. Apps like Toro allow vehicle owners to list their cars for other people to rent out. If you don’t use your vehicle on a daily basis, this is an easy way to earn money using an app.
For obvious reasons, different car brands, models, and year have different prices. Depending on the model and brand of your vehicle, you can earn a substantial income from it. You can use the app’s calculator to see how much you can earn from your vehicle. Make sure you check out their vehicle requirements to see if your vehicle qualifies.
Unfortunately, this app is not available in every city, as the app is currently limited only to major cities.
Earn While Losing Weight
HealthyWage has one of the most enticing offers for their app users – they pay you to lose weight. According to the app, they can help you earn as much as $10,000 USD when you join their program.
Actually, they have a variety of ways for their participants to earn, such as weight loss on your own, or join a team challenge and motivate other participants. You need to lose a minimum of 10% of your body weight in six months to get $300 and up. Your money can also increase depending on the number of friends you invite to participate in the challenge.
If you’re tired of finding a gym buddy that hold you accountable every single day, this is a great way to find motivation and push yourself to develop a healthy lifestyle.
Earn Money with Your Snaps
Are you into photography? If you have the skills and creativity, then you can earn extra income from selling your photos with Foap. This app allows both amateur and professional photographers to sell their work. There is a catch, though: your photo must be taken from your smartphone.
It is quite a genius idea; this crowdsourcing platform provides advertisers, brands, and marketing agencies great image options for their materials.
Simply make an account by registering through the app. You must upload high-quality photos and make sure you include tags to make it easier to find. Your photos will be registered in the community where you will be rated. The higher the rating, the more visibility for your work.
You can earn as much as $5 per photo or up to $100 per sale. Some agencies and brands also offer ‘missions’ for photographers. These are specific requests for images. Also, they just recently expanded their services to include videos. This is great news for video-making enthusiasts out there that want to make extra money.
