The internet offers unlimited opportunities for making money from virtually any location. This book explains how to use different websites to sell items, trade-in items for gift cards, or earn rewards for free stuff. The internet is highly underutilized as a source of income for young people, many of whom are struggling to find minimum wage jobs in their communities.
For example, there is a popular movement called repurposing or upcycling where craft and decorating enthusiasts use throw-away items to create new and beautiful things. The materials for these items are often free for the taking and sell well on eBay. On other websites, seemingly worthless items can also be traded in for gift card credit. Sites like Fiverr can be a lucrative opportunity where people can sell micro jobs for $5 per gig - many of these micro jobs can easily be done from home by teenagers and young adults.
All you need is a computer (or mobile phone with internet access) and some spare time to use the strategies in this book to make money. No skills, tools, or education are required to do any of the techniques explained in this book, which is geared towards teenagers and young adults who are naturally more internet and computer savvy than their parents and grandparents.
