* Conjuring Up Some Cash When You Need It Quick

Tuesday, June 16, 2020

If you’re in need of money and you can’t wait until your next regular payment, then it’s likely that you’re dealing with something pretty urgent. While there are other tips you should follow to better deal with financial emergencies, here we are going to look at what you can do in order to find some cash in no time.


Time for a side hustle?

One of the most reliable ways to make money online at the moment is to find something that people are willing to pay you money for. There is a whole range of freelancing websites with people looking for others to do work for them, whether it’s writing, DIY, answering phones, or something else. The money might not be massive, but it can be an easy way to find some cash if you’re willing to commit.


See if you can sell what you don’t need

When it comes to selling things like clothes, DVDs, and the like, you usually shouldn’t expect to make too much money, quickly. Even if you use online auction sites to find eager buyers, it can take some time. However, for slightly more valuable assets, such as finding a way to sell your Rolex or tech like your phone or laptop, you can free up cash a lot sooner. There are websites that will take these off your hands more quickly, albeit at a slightly reduced price than had you sold it on the open market.


Should you borrow?

Using your credit is a very common option when push comes to shove, but it’s important to very carefully think about it. If you have built up your credit score, then you should be able to access decent interest credit cards and overdrafts that put you at least risk than some of the other options. However, if you don’t have a decent credit score, the only options available will be things like payday loans, for which the interest can be truly debilitating.


Sell your photos online

This won’t apply to everyone, of course. However, if you consider yourself something of a photographer, then there are stock image websites who may be willing to pay you for whatever images you’re willing to upload. Similarly, you can sell photos to local papers, especially for the sports section looking at local games.


Make money using your car

There are a couple of ways to turn your car into a cash-making machine. The first will take some time and effort, and that means driving with an app such as Uber or Lyft. otherwise, you can also look at car advertising if you don’t have the time to pick up what is essentially a second job. As the name implies, this means driving around with logos and marketing messages on your car, turning your vehicle into a moving billboard for cash.


Hopefully, the tips above help you find the cash that you need when time is of the essence. Just be sure that you’re thinking about the decisions you make and avoid those risky options such as payday loans that tend to capitalise on the desperate.
