The Baker’s Dozen
A Human Billboard:
Jason would sell them a day in which he would wear a shirt with their logo on it. He would then take pictures and videos of himself wearing the shirt and upload them to UStream, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter and social sites.
“For every day of the year, Sadler dons the shirt of a different company for a set price. On January 1, the price is $1. The price is increased by $1 for every day after January 1.
By December 31, I Wear Your Shirt’s last customer for the year would have to pay $365. At the end of 365 days, Sadler’s income would be $66,795.
He received an additional $18,000 in 2009 from the sale of monthly $1,500 sponsorships.
After factoring in the money gained from contests and other enterprises, Sadler’s total income in 2009 is $83,000”
Jason now employs a whole team of shirt wearers across the United States, and also sells his last name (changing it to a company name), for a year to the highest bidder – – $45,000 in 2012.
Here are some other ideas, though nowhere near as creative as Jason’s. . .
The practice of taking advantage of price differences between markets.
In other words, buying something at a low price from one place and selling it for a greater price somewhere else.
Here are a couple of common examples:
Buy an item on Amazon for $10 and sell it on EBay for $20 – or vice versa.
- Find someone on a freelance website offering to pay $50 to have a sales video made, win the bid and then find someone reliable on Fiverr who will do the job for $5.
Speaking of Fiverr. . .
Go to the site and take a look at some of the crazy things people offer on there for $5. 🙂
Get paid for completing small tasks. . .
Some Micro workers manage to make a couple of hundred dollars a week.
Amazon’s Mturk is a popular one, SocialReactor is another for those of you who have a strong social following, and, if you think you could give constructive feedback on music, you could give SlicethePie a try.
A search on Google or Bing for Microjobs should turn up many more.
5 Bucks a Day:
Dennis Becker’s 5 Bucks a Day ebook is well worth a read… In it, he teaches you a strategy to explode your online income from nothing (or little) to $200, $500, $700 or even $1000 a day — $5 at a time.
His book contains project ideas that will consistently earn $5 on which you can build or expand.
But better than that, it teaches you to brainstorm more creative ideas — and to focus.
