You may have heard the term “make money with your smartphone” before, but you’ve probably wondered if is REALLY possible to make a decent income with your phone.
Well the simple answer is… YES! You can definitely make a regular side income using your phone.
Smartphone apps give you a great opportunity to start making some cash on the side, without the need to quit your job (until you are ready!) and without taking up too much of your time.
Best of all, most of them are so quick and easy to get started, you can start your own little side hustle today.
Money making apps are still relatively new, so you may have doubts that you can make money from your phone, it sounds too good to be true.
Or maybe you want to try it, but you are confused about which are the best money making apps to try or you’re worried about how much time you will need to dedicate to it.
All of these are valid queries and the best person to answer them is somebody that is already making a regular side income with their phone. So I have asked Monica Thompsom from On My Way To Quit to share her experience of using money making apps.
Monica is one of the many people that are now successfully using money making apps to make extra side income every month, so I’ve asked her to describe which apps have been most successful for her and how she got started:
How To Make Money With Your Smartphone
As a single mother working a 9 to 5, I needed to find a way to supplement my income however, I didn’t want to be away from home more than I already was.
So, while doing my research, I’ve stumbled upon two ways to make money using an app on my smartphone and thought I would give them a try.
The first app is UberEats (Uber Driver) and the second app is Poshmark.
UberEats is a food delivery service where they have independent drivers pick up food from restaurants and deliver it to customers who have placed the orders.
I figured this is something I could do for about two hours or so after work and could be still home at a decent time.
The sign-up process took a few days since the company checked my driving credentials and once everything checked out, they gave me the green light to get started.
The app is simple. All you do is just go online whenever you are ready to work and wait for an order to come it. When an order comes, the app navigates you to the restaurant to pick up the order, and then it navigates you to the customers delivery address.
The order may not be ready once you arrive so you may have to wait a few minutes. Once you drop off the order, you wait until the next one comes in. It is just that simple!
For a more detailed explanation check out my blog post My Experience With Driving For UberEats.
The most I have made in a month was a little over $500, and that is just doing a few hours after work and a little more during the weekends. The more hours I’ve worked, the more I got paid.
The best part about it is I get to work on my own time!
A few tips to be successful with UberEats.
- Get to know the popular areas. The more restaurants in one area means you will more than likely get consistent orders.
- The time periods I find the most active are lunch hours (between 12-2pm) and dinner hours (between 5-7pm).
- Once you get the hang of things after a few deliveries, you will become a pro at this!
Here are a few other ideas of how to: make money from home.
Turn your annual closet cleaning into a profitable side hustle.
Poshmark is the second app I use to supplement my income.
The signup process takes about 2 minutes and once that is completed, you are ready to start listing items to sell.
As a test, I listed a pair of Nike shoes that my son had outgrown that were still in decent condition.
To list an item is simply just taking a few pictures, write a description about the item and list it.
Once you sell an item on Poshmark, they will send you a shipping label via email which you will attach to your boxed item. When that is done, take the package to your local post office and they will send it to the buyer.
The shoes I listed sold in about a week for $50 and from there I was hooked!
The most I have made in a month with Poshmark has been about $200 and that is just with minimal effort.
A few tips that have helped me to succeed with Poshmark.
- List items higher than the amount of profit you want to receive. This leaves room for counter offers or any special discounts you may offer.
- Constantly share your items as well as other seller’s items to get more exposure to your Poshmark closet. The more people view your items, the higher chance of someone making a purchase.
- Always ship your items within 2-3 days to keep your buyers happy.
- The buyer has the option to rate you as a seller, so you want to make sure you keep good ratings.
These two apps are my favorite money making apps because they are helping me reach my goals much faster than just being content with my 9 to 5 income.
