Making money in a recession is not as difficult as you may think. AS a matter of fact, Large businesses and many of the richest people in the world make the most money in these times. But that does not mean that you and i are going to miss out does it?
Of course not. If you apply a few simple strategies, and have a positive and diligent mindset, you are already half way there.
The first thing to look at is the money you already have, In difficult times like these, it is only common sense that you should be a little more strict about your outgoings. Going out for dinner and having a good time with friends, or spending the weekend shopping for nice clothes is fine, but only in moderation. Instead of going out 4 times a week, how about just 1?
Bam! Right there you’ve probably just saved yourself a few hundred dollars a week.
Now you have some options, You could Whack that extra money onto your creditcard or any other outgoings you have, open up a savings account for safe keeping, or you could put that money to Work! All of these options are great, But we’ll focus on putting that cash to work.
Ok, so if you only have a limited amount of money, one of the best ways to make money is to find a bargain, buy it, and sell it for a profit.
One of the easiest ways to do this is through ebay. All you need is to do a little research and find out whats “HOT” right now. Take a look at the ebay marketplace for products that are selling like hotcakes, you should be able to get a general idea of the Buying and selling price of this “Hot” product and now th fun part begins!
What you need to do is search through ebay or other marketplaces for the chosen product and its ralative accessories and write down a price list showing which marketplace and the buy/sale price. For example I know that the i phone is hot right now, so id search all marketplaces and determine which one i was going to purchase on, and which one i was going to sell on.You can make a lot of money doing this, although it can be somewhat timely, it does pay off if done correctly.
Real estate investors love recessions because they can find very cheap cash-flow positive property, although this vehicle does require you to have a higher upfront cost, e.g coming up with the deposit/ releasing equity in your own home/ and all associated fees involved,the Return on investment can be extraordinary. You obviously have to know you market and do your homework but it will pay off, that i’m sure.
Another way to make money in a recession is a starting a Home Based Business. I know there are a lot of sceptics out there who belive that you can’t. Well, saying that, as the times change, companies are looking for a more cost effective approach to marketing their goods and servives, and what a better way than the world wide web.
What these companies do is search for other people to advertise their products and in turn these people get paid a commission for the sale.
How easy is that? These companies don’t need to do virtually anything.
There are many ways to make money off the internet, and for a very low upfront cost.You can make a killing doing this, and its not difficult at all.
To Your Success!
