Making money with your smartphone - a brief guide
Written by Madhuri Boinwad

Thanks to an immense advancement of tech gadgets, our phones can be cameras, a replacement for tv, music player, anything you want. Even better, you can download apps and earn money using only your mobile phone. Here are some ideas on how you could make money using your phone only.

Investing via Apps 

These days, investing apps are ridiculously fantastic. You can quickly get savings that are made automatically without the need to make any sacrifices. These investment trades are entirely free, investing for your entire portfolio on autopilot. On top of that, you can set up a whole investment scheme that looks after your future by installing a few suitable applications. Let’s get into it.

Robinhood: If you’re looking for something a little more advanced, Robinhood lets you exchange stocks, funds, and other financial items right from your computer. In addition, commission fees are not charged on self-directed accounts. You can start with only $1 in over 5,000 stocks, ETFs, and cryptocurrency with this simple choice. Get this app if you’ve been searching for a free way to trade from your computer. Still, having a licensed Forex broker is highly recommended since he can be a great help along the way.

Use an App to Sell Your Items

Selling items you no longer need is one of the quickest ways to make some extra cash. You can sell anything from old phones to clothes, books, and even unused gift cards using various apps. Here are the most popular:

Poshmark is a website that allows users to list their products for sale. After creating an account, take a picture of the item you want to sell, add a description and a price. You can also organize a party so that your friends can list similar things together. Poshmark provides the package as well as free shipping! It is free to list items, but there is a $2.95 fee for items under $15 and a 20% fee for over $15.

Letgo: If you’re going to spend time decluttering or cleaning out your garage, you may as well make some money while you’re doing it. Letgo is similar to a thrift shop online. Letgo is similar to Craigslist, but with a more modern website and software. The software is free to use, and if you want to get rid of something, you can negotiate rates. You can only sell in your neighborhood, and the app can’t charge you, so you’ll have to work out payment plans with the buyer (typically cash or Venmo).

Amazon accepts thousands of qualifying items for trade-in, though you won’t get paid in cash. Earn Amazon gift cards by trading in books, old phones, video games, and Amazon goods (Kindle, Echo, and so on). 


If you like to take photos and have a knack for it, you may send images to “projects” in addition to building a portfolio of work. Big-name corporations usually pay much more, and businesses can also buy the work of photographers who don’t “win” if you enter a competition that is constantly circulating on photo websites. Bear in mind that most customers are businesses or small business owners looking for a picture for their website or blog, so check at common photos and see what types of images are selling.

Working as a Customer Service Representative 

You may be able to make money on the phone as a customer service representative. U-Haul, Upwork, Getty Images, Dollar Flight Club, Delta Airlines, and JetBlue are only a few of the major companies that employ people to answer customer service requests from the comfort of their own homes.

Working as a customer service representative from your phone would offer a more consistent source of income, but employment can be harder to come by. Before you can operate from home, you can be expected to attend some training on-site.

Working as a Tutor for Languages 

You could make money as an ESL tutor on NiceTalk if you have a smartphone and are fluent in English. After you’ve downloaded the app, you’ll need to fill out a registration form and send it to the company. If you’ve been accepted, you can access your app at any time and accept requests from students. You’ll need to be able to communicate with students through video chat. Good luck!
