    Hey people,

    Good looking forum so far.

    I've been wondering about this subject in recent weeks and can't think of many ideas.

    I'm not exactly a beginner as I used to do ebay sales and tried (Not hard enough) at affiliate marketing.

    Is there any that you can think of?

    I'm basically a college student who can only work three days a week and will be starting University in September/October so need a side income that I can then grow into something better over the next few months or years if I'm lucky :)

    I appreciate any tips given.

    What are your interests? What kind of work experience do you have apart from ebay? What kind of affiliate marketing have you tried?

    How about freelance work?

    Hey there Newto!

    Since you have experience selling online through affiliate marketing, why not just create your own e-commerce website and sell products. If you are into gadgets, you can buy in bulk smartphones and phablets at cheap prices, like Samsung's Galaxy line and Apple's iPhones, iPads and iPods.

    You already start up a small business in the right path. Further more you should make your own web page in order to promoting your products.

    Hey all,

    Thanks for the responses, guess I should have added more information.

    I haven't got many skills as I haven't dome much these past few years. I personally don't mind what I sell as long as I make a nice profit. I may just keep it simple for now with phone accessories.

    I used to fix up/repair handheld consoles when I was younger which made me a profit sometimes.

    Apart from that I've done some engineering (Not skilled enough) and my School business courses.. Not much else haha

    Newto has very little capital, so starting his own website is probably not an option at this point, and buying items is probably not a good idea either.

    Have you considered going back to ebay or affiliate marketing, this time working a bit harder. You will be going back to school, so you have to concentrate on schoolwork as well, but with discipline you can set aside a certain amount of time and decide you are going to work on your business, no matter what, and stick with it.

    We need a little more information. Do you watch wrestling or participate? Do you have a sneaker collection? What kind of art are you interested in? Do you paint or draw, or buy? Try to avoid short posts that aren't informative enough.

    I'm getting back into collecting sneakers, starting to draw again and feel I could pursue wrestling.

    I think I'll save up and start selling on Ebay again.

    Another thing I'm going to start is a Youtube weight loss channel where I lose the weight and help others. I currently weigh over 300 pounds and think it would be very positive and could also make a bit of cash if I do it right. But most importantly being healthy lol.
