Sell Your Books on the Application Book Scouter.

It is very likely that you have old books around at home. They may be collecting dust or else you know you never will read or pick it up again. Get some money for those! There is an application (app) called Book Scouter. There are many websites that buy books and so Book Scouter is like an aggregator that takes the ISBN number on your book and checks all the other smaller websites to see which are buying it and at what price.

Make Videos to Sell Affiliate Products.

Even if you don't become one of those legendary success stories, you can still make money on YouTube. How? Simple. Become an affiliate of a company or product that you like. Then make a video and promote your affiliate link with it.

      I think it's time for me to sell some of my books - especially those I haven't used in years. Thanks for the tips!
