So, you’re in a bit of a financial crunch at the moment. You want to make money quickly, without too much hassle and fuss. But you don’t know what to sell to make a little extra cash to help you out.
Here are four things that you can sell to make money quickly and can help you out of your financial squeeze or even to just get rid of some of your clutter for money.
- Sell some of your old clothing
- Offer advertising space on social media
- Sell old tech
- Sell CDs, DVDs and games
You’ve probably seen the adverts for Depop and Vinted on YouTube, encouraging people to move away from fast fashion and trade what clothes they have with others and get money from them to help the environment. You can read more about this in this article by Greenpeace.
However, it can take them a little while to sell, so if you need a cash injection but have nothing you’re willing to sell, a short-term loan could help – sites like GrowingPower.co.uk will have more details on this. Do make sure you think seriously about your finances before taking out a loan though, and do shop around to find the best deal for you.
If you own a blog or a popular social media, offering some space for companies to let and advertise on for a fixed sum might be a good idea to get some extra cash in the door. It’s also good for content and can help your page gain more interest. This is a great, no-hassle way of getting some money, whether it’s advertising brands, other accounts, or even just informative sites that want to get more traffic.
Selling old mobile phones, tablets, and other devices can be a good way to earn some extra money without putting in much effort. This can be great if you need an extra couple of pounds. However, prices will vary on what you give and what condition it’s in, so you might not get as much as you were hoping for. This can be a quick and easy way to get cash.
These might have some interest in certain communities if they are rare, but the likelihood is, you are going to need to look up some similar services to what you may have considered for selling your old tech and devices. Prices can, again, vary depending on what you are selling to them, and that can mean that you might not get as much as you hoped. However, something is better than nothing, and it might help you clear some clutter too.
A few final thoughts
To conclude, it can be tricky to find cash. However, by selling the right things, you can make a little bit of extra money quickly. By selling old clothes, offering advertising or promotional spaces on your social accounts or blogs, or selling your old tech or DVDs, CDs and games, you can make a little extra money. This can be great if you are a student needing some quick cash, or you just need to clear up some of your clutter.
