    Which mean I can study in the week, and look after kids. On the weekends I do Magic shows which means I have some income but internet marketing really helps. The first company I joined was crap, And I worked really hard for them signing up over 640 people to their company...... Then I gave up for a while LOL.

    BUT I have since found a good on-line Business opportunity (free) that I and two of my friends are now earning with.

    If you Can tweet, facebook and use You Tube YOU Can make money on line. In fact a local festival promoter heard about what I have been doing and now employs me to tweet for the festival.......... rock on.

    So fellow students, If you have a few hours a week and can utilise social media then give it a go.

    take care

    There's loads of jobs like this online, check sites like Freelancer.com and elance.

    There's even jobs for filling out captchas' -- it's like £1.20 per 1000 done, so it's horrific pay.

    Yeah, that stuff is really only worth it when you're desperate for some change, that and filling out surveys.

    There's more compelling stuff on sites like Fivesquids but you'll end up having to work a lot in order to earn decent money. You might end up being better off with a "real" part-time job.

    Much better to get out and build confidence in the real world. Generally better and more consistent earnings tbh.

    Are you sure you would turn down a passive income the internet can offer? Months ago I found a supplier and I would sell headphones, I could buy a pair for £30 sell it for £35 buy a pair for £45 sell it for £50 and buy a pair for £55 and sell it for £65.

    Bearing in mind that I was dropshiping, each sale took me around 3-4 minutes to check that I had received payment, pay my supplier and copy and paste the clients address and contact information.

    I was 15 at the time and I earnt an income of around £150 a week for about 3 months before my supplier stopped dropshiping and went to major league wholesale. Unfortunately I haven't found a reliable dropshiper for the same product yet

    Find a job that pays £5-10 pound for 3-4 minutes work.

    Exactly, it's gone. My job provides me massive shifts so I can work up to 13 hour shifts. I can earn £150 from 2 days a week, which means I can continue this alongside uni. Moreover you can work as much or as little as you want, I know a guy that worked 11 days in row, or you could do nothing for months and still be employed.

    It is one of the most flexible jobs I know and is a huge company, so is not going to disappear after 3 months. It is perfect for a student, it looks good on my CV,it builds skills for future jobs and I get to work with and learn from some amazing people. So, yes I would chose my opportunity over being stuck inside my room dropshipping. And I've looked into dropshipping etc., there's nowhere near as much potential as buying wholesale in bulk which my friend does so I call bull**** on your figures, I think you're a daydreamer.

    Do you now? Maybe your friend hasn't had the logic to truly look into buying into a niche market. I did so, i succeeded at it, and because I did so, and your friend didn't you call bull****? :clap2:

    What? My friend didn't succeed? Where did you get that idea? He bought wholesale with his brother and had nearly his whole house filled with stock. They turned over £100 000 with about roughly half of that in profit between the two of them and they were named in a local accountancy magazine . This was alongside them studying.

    The profit margins in buying wholesale and reselling are much greater than in dropshipping, FACT! This tells me all I need to know about you. Yes you were bull****ting xxx

    I did not once say that your friend didn't succeed. I merely stated that I used a niche market, and if you're saying that I didn't succeed. £150 a week for an investment in time of I would estimate 2-3 hours total. This was when I was a 15 year old, studying at GCSE level. I do not feel the need to prove myself to you. The fact that if I wanted to I could accumulate the funds today, to buy their business, including stock and burn it. For the fun of it. Through zero effort of my own.

    Yeah of course :rofl:

    P.S. that is what your whole previous post was about 'I did so, I succeeded at it, and beacause I did so and your friend didn't'...
    Fact is my friend did succeed at buying into a niche market.

    There are still loads of niche opportunities for stuff like this on the net. Ecommerce is pretty much constantly evolving; I did wholesale stuff (acting as a reseller), my friend works with flash-sales sites (Groupon etc), and other guys do data analysis on ecommerce to take advantage of inefficiencies on ebay.

    The thing about Amazon is they are huge and don't specialise in anything. If you come across as an expert in your field then you will start to gain customers. With e-commerce, you don't have many costs so you can keep your prices at the same as Amazon fairly easily. Obviously, you'll make less profit, but that's not too bad.

    It's very difficult to do, but I think it can be done.

    Firstly, I'm sorry to quote you on this so long after you posted, but I was just wondering whether you actually have any personal experience with freelancer.

    I have worked as a freelance writer for almost four years, and recently tried this platform as it made sense to bid for jobs that needed completing rather than finding work elsewhere.

    Since starting work two weeks ago, I have "earned" £600. That's in quotation marks because the money is only in my Freelancer account, I haven't yet been paid.

    I have read a lot of reviews on the internet which suggest that it is a scam, but I have also seen it recommended on finance pages of newspapers so one would assume they'd at least researched into it. Plus there are hundreds of freelancers with several thousand completed jobs, and I'd kind of assume they wouldn't carry on working if they hadn't been paid.

    I'm wary about the whole "wait 15 days before getting payment" thing. Now that I have requested the payment, I don't plan to complete any more work until I am sure that it pays. But it would be GREAT if you could put my mind at rest, because I'd hate to think that I'd done all the work for nothing.

    That 'wait 15 days' thing is normal for those kind of sites. It's basically to help stop fraud and bad stuff happening- say you wanted me to do a job, I do it for you and you pay me. Then you open it and find it's either not there or it's all copied from the internet. Instead of me being able to take the money you paid me out of the website and run off with it, it's there for 2 weeks so it can be refunded if necessary.

    I haven't got experience in using it but I would say that there's 90% chance you'll get the money.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply, I appreciate it. I'm probably just being silly but I've worked hard and have read lots of reviews.. but I suppose they're from people who've broken the rules and are bitter about it.

    Thanks again!

    Sounds great!

    I don't use freelancer, but I DO use another freelance site. I haven't earned that much, but that is due solely to the fact that I have a full time job and don't have the time to take on anymore work. The site I use only has a 6 day waiting period - so I can easily withdraw from that.

    However, from what I've heard freelancer is a reputable site, so I don't think there's much to worry about. Let me know about your freelance experience, what do you do?

    Thank you for taking the time to reassure me .

    I started using it for additional income but within a matter of days I realised it had the potential to be so much more. So I started accepting more work to write articles, and there's one guy who had given me the majority of my work, I was lucky to bump into him.

    I think I'm worrying because it seems too good to be true. But perhaps for once something is actually genuinely good!! What kind of thing do you do?
