by: The Financial Blogger    Category: Alternative Income,Make Money Online

Whether you’re studying for an undergraduate degree or have returned to education to gain your online masters in public administration, there are many great ways to boost your income as a student and get yourself a little bit of extra cash to spend or save. With tuition fees at an all-time high, it’s no surprise that more students are looking for ways to improve their financial situation as they study. We’ve listed some of the best ways for students to make an extra income online.

Paid Surveys

If you don’t mind watching videos and answering questions about new products, marketing materials and more, then you could make some money from answering paid surveys online. Although you’ll never become a millionaire from taking online surveys, it can be a quick, easy and convenient way to earn an extra few dollars when your bank balance is low.

Blogging

If you enjoy writing and sharing your experiences with others, then you might want to consider becoming a student blogger. With a variety of different blogging platforms to choose from where you can get started for free, it’s never been easier to start making an extra income as a student. Bloggers can earn money from pay-per-click advertising, sell products at an e-commerce store, paid content, eBooks and more.

Sell Online

Whether you’ve upgraded to a new laptop for your online MPA program or have loads of old clothes that you no longer wear, selling your old things online can be a great way to make an extra income whilst at college. When it comes to selling online, there really is no limit to what you can make money from, whether it’s your old textbooks, gadgets, or kitchen utensils!

Offer an Online Service

Another great way to make an income online as a student is to offer an online service. For example, if you can create stunning websites you could set up your services as a graphics or web designer online to make an income. However, be aware that making money as a freelancer offering services online can often be very competitive.

Review Sites and Apps for Cash

If you are amongst the first of your friends to try out a new website or app, then you may be able to do it for cash. Platforms such as User Testing pay everyday people to test out and review all kinds of different websites, with each review taking around 20-30 minutes and earning the user $10.

Publish an eBook

Whether you have some great ideas for a self-help book for students or enjoy writing fiction, it’s never been easier to make money as an author today. As a student, you have the advantage of being good at researching and writing, so why not consider writing and selling your own eBook to make an income online? The best thing about eBooks as an income source is that you only need to write them once, but you’ll earn money from every sale.

Here’s How To Actually Succeed as a Part-Time Day Trader

by: The Financial Blogger    Category: Make Money Online,Trading

Day trading is gradually becoming one of the glamorous ways to rake in the big bucks on Wall Street without actually showing up at work with a suit, tie and briefcase. The media (online and offline) constantly treats us to stories of everyday people who are making millions of dollars on the stock market as day traders. Most people who take up day trading are actually not much different from Wall Street types. A simple Google image search for “Day Traders” will show you hundreds of pictures of folks looking intently at multiple trading screens.

However, the media paints a somewhat different image for the successful day trader. The media portrayal of the successful day trader often shows someone in an exotic island, someone lying on the warm sounds of a beach, or a someone is pajamas who makes million lying in bed or on a couch. Of course, you can succeed as a part-time day trader. In fact, part-time day trading lets you control offer you freedom. This piece seeks to disabuse your mind in providing you with actionable information that can help you succeed as a part-time day trader.

Set specific trading hours

To succeed as a part-time day trader, you’ll need to approach day trading as a part time job with specific working/trading plan. Of course, part time day trading should give you a chance to trade the market at your convenience; nonetheless, you’ll need to examine your schedule and carve out time that you’ll devote to the market.

If you are currently employed and you want to combine trading with your day job, you should set your trading hours apart from your regular working hours. In fact, you’ll most likely lose money if you think you can trade the markets during your commute to/from work because you’ll be making trading decisions without being in the trading ‘zone’.

Trade only assets you understand

The financial market is very huge and there are different kinds of assets available for trading and investments. You can trade CFDs, stock, options, forex, ETFs, commodities, and futures among others. Even in the specific asset classes, you can still streamline your trades to zero in on specific economies, industries, sectors, and companies.

However, the fact that Wall Street provides you with an opportunity to trade all sorts of assets doesn’t necessarily mean that you should become a jack of all trade trader. It would be in your best interest to limit your day trading activities to assets that you can actually understand. More so, you’ll need  a working knowledge of fundamental and technical analysis to succeed as a part-time day trader.

Take up day trading as a serious business

Lastly, you need to approach day trading as a serious business irrespective of whether you want to be a full time to part-time day trader. You’ll need to decide how much money you want to put into your day trader activities. It is better to start trading with a small capital and increase your trading capital as you hone your skills.

You’ll need to have a dedicated trading space – at least, you should invest a dedicated trading computer and high-speed internet connection. You should also take the time to plan each of your trades with definite entry strategies, exit strategies when the trade goes your way, and escape strategies when the trade goes against you.

6 Easy Ways to Earn Money Via Referrals

by: The Financial Blogger    Category: Alternative Income,Make Money Online

Lots of companies are scrambling to get new clients in the ever-shrinking local and global markets. This has necessitated competitive pricing, better services as well as freebies and lots of cash offers. One of the ways these companies are building their clientele is through earning money via referrals.

This is simply a means of earning perks by having your family and friends namedrop or use a specially sent sign-up link to join a service. They can also fill in your name on a slot reserved for ‘referral.’ This is an excellent means of income for lots of people. There are several ways you can earn money via referrals.

I. Refer People to Products You Like

There are lots of quality products in the market that offer referral incentives. Even then you are more likely to make better revenue by referring products you are passionate about. When you like products, it’s easier for you to make a more persuasive appeal to your family and friends.

The more you use a product, the more experience, expertise, and ability you will have to recommend it to your buddies. This makes it easier for you to show its demonstrable value. It’s critical that you research what is required of you before recommending a product to others.

II. Sign-Up & Find your URL

Many referees sign up for referral programs, and then nothing ever happens on their platform. Most reward sites, especially those that offer referrer’s rewards, have a URL stat that you will use to keep track of how you are performing. A typical program involves members who already have an account. The referral program is easy. All you have to do is invite a friend to open a live trading account, and you get paid a bonus as per your friend’s initial deposit and trade volume.

In such a referral program there is no limit to the number of friends you can invite. There are several other types of referrals including forex affiliate, referrer’s networks, or partnership programs that focus specifically on referral marketing. Most referrer’s reward programs are slated in such a way that they have an embedded code which you can simply link to your site.

III. Use Quality Articles & other Resources for Your Audience

While slotting the logo or link with an embedded code on your site will generate organic traffic, having quality content will create a higher traffic and increase conversions. Keep in mind that you have to offer useful content and resources for your audience if they are to follow the link to the referral program.

You have to consider your referral as a form of content marketing. It’s best to avoid a hard sell. Instead, you can rely on a subtle or suggestive recommendation. For example, if the referral reward program is in marketing, it much easier to slot them into marketing related blog posts.

IV. Rely on the Rewarding Company’s Blog

Given that referrals programs are easier to publicize through content marketing it’s easier to rely on the content produced by the company offering the referral program. Visit their site and use their valuable stats, best practices and resources to share on your own site.

This makes your marketing even more persuasive and compelling. You can rewrite the content of your favorite product from the producer’s site then share them on your own site. You can also keep track of the rewarding company’s social media pages and sites for the latest info, launches, upgrades, etc. and use it to market the referral.

V. Use the Product and Share Your Experience

Most companies would love their referrers to use their products then review it for them. However, this isn’t always possible. Sometimes you can simply review the product using the content from other reviewers or making your own insight from the firm’s ads. This strategy is obviously easier to do with some products than with others.

There are a number of ways of going about this. First, you can do it as an experiential. Secondly, you can do it through a step by step instructional method. Thirdly you can do it as an educational moment while offering the option of a Q & A ta the end of the lecture, as well as a call to action.

VI. Simplify a Referral Company’ Program

There are lots of companies with challenging, and seemingly complicated product offers in the market. One of the ways of making money through referrals involves creating tutorials or resources that simplify the process of purchasing or using a particular product and posting the instructional online with links to the program.

There are referral programs created specifically to cater to this market. This mainly works for products that need a customized guide for different markets.

Conclusion

There are also lots of apps that you can use to earn money via referrals by marketing the referrer’s link or embedded codes. These include Referral Candy, Friendly, LoyaltyLion, S Loyalty: Refer-a-Friend, Ambassador, Forewards as well as Referrify. Overall referral programs are a simple way to make some “extra” cash. If you’re already sharing about your favourite products, tools or services then see if the company that produces it offers a reward for recommending your friends.

Why Saving For Retirement Is The Most Sensible Choice

by: The Financial Blogger    Category: Personal Finance,RRSP

Saving for your retirement presents both a mental and financial struggle. It is notoriously difficult to start saving and we easily find ourselves making excuses. In fact, you may find that you are trapped in a self-fulfilling belief: “I believe it’s true, therefore is must be true”. Your first and most difficult hurdle to overcome is confronting your mental barrier to saving for retirement.

Understanding why saving for retirement is important will help you take the first step to making the future a priority. You may not be able to start saving immediately, but the steps you take now to mentally prepare yourself will only benefit you in the future when it becomes easier to save.

 

Don’t get caught up living in the moment

Living for today may appeal to the romantics, but the reality is that they tend to rely on handouts from friends, family and/or the government. It is useful to visualize asking your partner, parents or the bank for money. How do you feel? Dread? Fear? Living in the moment means having to feel that way every month just to keep afloat.

That doesn’t mean you should just abandon you current needs and desires. Life is all about balance so try and weigh your future and present needs against each other. You do, after all, have to look after yourself.

 

Having enough money to save

Sometimes you may not have the money to allocate to retirement savings, but many people aren’t budgeting at all. Reviewing your monthly expenditure and setting up a budget often reveals wasteful spending. You may find that you do have some extra cash that could be used more wisely. You may also find that you still can’t start saving. Don’t despair – your budget will help you see the reality of your financial situation and help you plan towards starting your retirement savings. In fact, you can start for just $50/month. That’s the cost of a pair of shoes, a dinner or that satellite TV subscription.

 

Taking care of family members

It’s easy and essential to prioritize taking care of your family now, but thinking about the future is just as important. If you don’t take care of yourself then who will take care of them? Many find themselves stuck between their children and parent’s needs. For those of us stuck in the middle, considering and planning for our own futures will help us to break free from the cycle – to avoid depending on our children when it comes our turn to retire.

 

What about company schemes?

Maybe you don’t trust company schemes and you don’t have to. There are currently several financial products available, which means you don’t have to rely on your employer to manage your retirement savings plan. You can manage your own savings plan with unit trust-linked retirement annuities. You are able to choose the unit trusts that align with your goals, you can start and stop as your financial situation changes.

Being part of a group retirement annuity (which employers typically take out on behalf of their staff) doesn’t mean your employer owns it. They only facilitate the payments, while you are the ultimate owner of your individual annuity and you are able to continue your plan if you resign.

 

Investment managers and your retirement savings

Your retirement savings do not form part of your investment manager’s assets and are held in a trust, remaining safe even if your manager goes out of business. A board of trustees also oversees retirement funds. The trustees’ duties include ensuring that the retirement fund acts in the best interest of its members.

 

But how much work is it?

Starting a retirement annuity is similar to opening a bank account. In fact, you can open your own annuity in just a few steps and easily manage your account online.

 

Finding a place to start

All of this may seem daunting, but like most things in life its only until you get into it. If you are unsure then consult an independent financial advisor to help you formulate a plan that works for you.
