Relax and Reap The Benefits: Ways To Earn Money While On A Holiday

Whoever said vacation means no profit is not thinking hard and resourcefully enough! Do not let such people stop you, however, for such a thing is actually doable. And no – it does not require a lot of effort and time. Just know the right websites to go to or the apps to download and allow a little time to plan, and voila – you have the profit even when you’re out of town, relaxing and having fun!

Relax and Reap The Benefits: Ways To Earn Money While On A Holiday

  1. Rent out your home via Airbnb.

Thanks to Airbnb, this does not mean having to go to ad websites only to encounter scary and sketchy folks. Using a home rental service specifically raises the chances of getting a response and a booking because all who visit the website are looking for a house to rent; compare this to an ad website where almost everything is offered or sought for.

Not only does the process get a lot easier, but using Airbnb to rent out your home is definitely more secure. Other than having a customer profile in order to get to know your potential guests, it is also free to list; they will only have 3% of your earnings from your successful bookings.

What is great is how you can build a good reputation since users can review your place after their stay. The policies you want to be followed are also up to you. The best thing is you can do it with a click on your computer as all transactions can be done online!

  1. Submit your travel photos to stock images websites.

Say what? You can actually make money with the photos you take during your adventures around the country or better yet, the world! Instead of just posting them on your social media websites, why not make them a source of some income as well?

Not a lot of people know this, but you can actually submit the photos you took during your travels to websites like iStock and Shutterstock. The pay varies and can range from a few cents up to over a hundred dollars every time your photo is downloaded.

If you take your photos with your smartphone, it might be easier to use the app Foap instead. Like iStock and Shutterstock, you can also submit the travel photos you took here, but other than that, you can also win the contests they regularly hold from which you can over $100-$300! Experience photographers will definitely have some advantage here.

  1. Upload photos of things you buy to CoSign.

Who would have thought that you could also earn from that new pair of branded shoes you just bought? Take a picture of the things you buy during your shopping sprees and upload them to CoSign before you upload them on your social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

You might be asking now how exactly are you going to earn from this. Well, think of you uploading photos of things you buy as “ads”. Normally, without tagging the photos to CoSign, this is like free advertisement.

However, once you do use CoSign, each time someone buys the product that is linked to your post, you get a percentage (30%-60%) as sales commission from CoSign. Talk about an effortless way to earn money!

  1. Accomplish real-life mini-quests or “gigs” via Gigwalk.

One of the most fun way to earn money during your vacation is to download the Gigwalk smartphone app and sign up for an account. No need to go through a long screening process; anyone with a smartphone and an internet connection can do it!

What happens here is that you are provided with a map marked with different mini-assignments – from taking a picture of the interior of that new building or to check the menu of that newly-opened restaurant.

Check the tasks near your area and pick the ones that are easiest for you to do. With a tap on your smartphones and some time to walk and do the tiny tasks, you can earn from it.
