Ways To Obtain Funds For Our Geeky Tech Projects

As geeks, we are constantly in search of new ways to fund our quirky, tech projects.  High-tech creations are not always the most inexpensive sort of hobby, so it behooves the tech nerds also to understand how to find funds when a new project takes form.  

Though it may seem like a challenging task to conquer, saving money is not as hard as well all seem to make it.  There are a plethora of online platforms that will make the tech industry work for the geeks.  Check out this quick overview of a few of the speediest ways to get some cash together for that new project.  

Take out a personal loan

It may not be possible for just anyone to take out a personal loan, but it is more possible than most people may think.  There are several different options available for those who do not have perfect credit ratings.  

Quick cash can also be acquired through a cash advance option.  Now that there are online locations for popular cash advance companies, it is becoming much easier to obtain the cash without a waiting period.

Take a side job online

Online/remote employment opportunities are multiplying quickly.  The internet has become host to a slew of different chances to earn an extra dollar.  Check out these few options for making some fast cash.

  • Become an Uber or Lyft driver
  • Work for Swagbucks taking surveys
  • Become a freelance content writer
  • Test out new apps and report the experience
  • Complete tasks for Field Agent

Sell stuff on the web

Thanks to platforms like Craigslist, Etsy, and Amazon, there are plenty of ways to sell stuff online.  It is not often there is a nerd that does not know how to make something cool.  Make stuff, sell stuff, and then buy new stuff.  It is the circle of tech.  Use it to benefit the next project.

The turnaround time on payment for goods sold through the use of these platforms is quick.  Most of the time, payment is instant.  Craigslist, Etsy, and Amazon are a great way to bring in some fast funds.  

Become a freelance content writer

Every piece of information we read on the internet has to be written by someone.  Freelance content writers ghostwrite most of what we read on a daily basis.  For a person who has a solid knowledge of the English language, picking up a writing job should not be very difficult.  

Most writing jobs do not pay extravagantly, but with enough effort, it is possible to make a fair amount of income through an online writing position.  

Test out apps or take surveys

Designers will pay people to test out their newly written applications and offer up constructive feedback.  It probably will not pay very much, but most people will spend that time online anyway.
