Everyone would love some extra spending money or a little more in their savings account, so why not have fun doing it? Talents, interests and hobbies can become cash, and here’s some ways to do it:
1. Become a Campus Representative:
If you’re fond of a particular app or store, find out about their campus rep opportunities! You get to promote the app or store around your campus and build off of your social connections to make money!
WayUp is an amazing website/app that is geared towards finding college students jobs! There are many campus rep opportunities on this website, sign up here:
2. Make an app:
This of course requires some knowledge on app development and dedication to the app, but anyone can submit their own app to the app store. Have an idea? Start working on it, because no matter how big or small, someone will probably find use for it.

3. Start a YouTube channel:
Making money through YouTube definitely takes time, as well as good content. If you’re up for a bit of challenge and have a passion for something, whether it be makeup, fashion, making people laugh, etc, YouTube is a great platform to showcase your interests on.

7. Start your own photography business:

8. Become a Brand Ambassador:
Many brands offer ambassador positions to promote their clothing or products. This is an amazing way to make money, because it's all about how much work you want to put in. The more time you dedicate to the brand, the more money you'll make. You'll be able to hold events for the brand and even get to give away free stuff, and who doesn't love free stuff?
9. Start an Etsy shop:
Let your creative juices flow and start an Etsy to sell handmade crafts, art or anything really. Start your own shop at https://www.etsy.com.
You can even create a Facebook for your business! Check out The Pink Pineapple shop for adorable gifts here:
10. Start a blog:
Love to write? Your outlet can become a source of income with enough time and dedication (and partnerships with ads). Blogs are not only fun for the writers (and most likely a stress relief), they're fun for others to read!

11. Sell your things:
If you find yourself not using/wearing something for a while, sell it! It’s a great way to de-clutter and make extra money while doing it too!
You can sell on amazon, eBay and many other websites, but don't forget to put your items on buy/trade/sell Facebook pages!
Or just try to win the lottery because let's face it, money is cool sometimes.
