Making (And Saving!) Money While in College

So, you were fortunate enough to get into a great college. Now, however, you’re bogged down with constant demands on your time and there always seems to be a test to study for or a paper to write. Somewhere in all of the hassle, you’re still expected to make ends meet.

The good news is that making money while you’re in college is not impossible, not if you’re willing to try out some new, different, and interesting types of work that are flexible enough to fit in with the schedule at your military friendly college.

Write a Match Blog!

Are you a skilled writer? If so, then know that you could make money by writing a match blog. While that term can refer to a few different things, what’s being referenced here are blogs that are matched with brands or companies.

These blogs advertise for the brand or company, which earns the blogger money and also gets more visitors to his or her site. If you’ve got a blog with a decent following (or if you can come up with one), then you can make money; it’s that simple. Check out Blog-Match or another company that matches blogs and brands.

Make Your Opinion Count

Would you like to earn money just for answering simple questions about yourself? Believe it or not, it’s more than possible to bring in cash by taking surveys online. A quick Google search will reveal plenty of options for earning money by taking surveys, and you can sign up for as many of these sites if you want. Your opinion helps to fuel market research and also puts money in your wallet!

Get Sponsored

Not everyone who blogs away or posts countless Youtube videos is doing it for the attention. Some people’s blogs, Youtube channels, and even Facebook accounts are sponsored, meaning someone is paying them to run those accounts.

Oftentimes, the person gives back something in return, such as mentioning the sponsor or even advertising for a particular brand, and almost all sponsored individuals have a wide following. If you’ve got the following, start looking around for sponsorship opportunities and let things take off!

Put That Money Away

When you use one or more of these ideas to start making money, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how quickly the cash starts to pile up! While it can be tempting to spend it all at once, make sure that you save at least a little something; a good rule of thumb is to save about 10% from every paycheck that you receive. Don’t opt for a savings account that comes with hefty administrative charges. Look for a bank, like BB&T, that gives free checking and savings accounts to college students.
