I am currently a student. But, it is currently summer, therefore there is an opportunity to make myself some money. How to make side cash if you will. However, when I have classes it is very difficult to find time to work with my ridiculously hectic schedule. I now have a better system in place for that. Finding a small family owned business that was not operating to its full potential was what I set out to do. Now I’m working for them. I created a website, Facebook page, business email, and specifically for increased income instead of increased traffic, a Kijiji account.
Kijiji is used to list items. You can help a successful purchase be made for an item the company has, and if not it still increases traffic and awareness for the business. This is my side summer job which I have set up to be capable of continuing well into the school year to try and combat those crazy tuition costs.
If you would like to do the same here is how I would go about it:
Tip #1 Look for Small Businesses. A small business is far less likely to be reaching all of its potentials. Usually, the owner and manager are the same people. So they don’t have time to look for or do themselves the job you are proposing.
Tip #2 Think Social. Social Media is the way that a lot of advertising is done, and it can be completely free. Managing a Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram are all ways to get more people to see that business without spending a cent.
Tip #3 Website Opportunities. Is there a way to get this business more profit online. A website can show locations, make appointments, or even order a product. When seeing a small bakery that doesn’t have the option to pre-order, propose a website that allows for birthday cakes to be customized with lettering in specific colours to be picked up on a certain day. Or, reserve an item in a clothing store to try on in store. The possibilities are only as big as your imagination.
