Put The "Fun" In Funds
Turn the hobby you love into a few extra ringgit in your purse.
Photography Turn your smartphone photo-taking obsession into spending money. Sites like instacanv.as and instaprints.com let you sell your Instagram pics and can fetch anywhere between RM12 for a greeting card to RM120 for a framed artwork.
A lot of businesses and brands are now cottoning onto the fact that a shared status or tweet is just as good, if not better, than word of mouth, but sometimes they don’t have time to run their social media. Offer your honed skills to your hairdresser, local organic grocer, or any other business or shop you love. Even if they’re not in a position to offer you money, they may be able to pay you in goods or services. Did someone say free haircut?
Your Passion If you have a skill that you’ve perfected where you can explain step-bystep (like how to apply a flawless winged eyeliner or how to make the lightest, most delicious meringue), showcase your talents in a video tutorial and upload it to YouTube. Its Partner Program is free to join and you can earn money through advertising hits on your page.
Arts, Craft, And Fashion Whether you’re illustrating paper goods, silversmithing original jewellery or sewing your own clothes, there are numerous websites where you can sell your wares. Etsy.com is the most well-known, and it prides itself on making “very-very small businesses have much-much more sway” on the world wide web. If you’d prefer to meet your customers, check out Weekender Bazaar’s Facebook page or ilovebazaar.net to set up a stall within the Klang Valley.
