It’s that time of year again, and no I am not talking about Christmas. I am talking about the week after that, where a hole has been left in your wallet after spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on Christmas gifts and Boxing day shopping. In this article I will tell you how you can make your money back and make a business out of it. I will also tell you how I made $80 in a week with the snowboard I received this Christmas…and no I did not sell them.
DO NOT just sell or store away the things you don’t need. Think bigger! You can lend these items out to others in the city. You now have a business, congratulations!
Easier said than done you say? Not at all! Let me tell you about a platform called Ruckify, it’s a person to person rental platform similar to AirBnB but for everything! You can create a profile and list your items on there for FREE. There are thousands of people browsing for the items you have, why not list them on there and make a side business out of it?
Now you’re wondering how I made my $80 in just one week with the snowboard I got for Christmas, right? Well, here’s how I did it:
1. I downloaded the Ruckify APP.
2. I created a profile.
3. I took a few pictures of my skates and listed them.
4. I put an ad. on my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the header ‘Brand New Snowboard for Rent, $20 a day’
5. Cha Ching the requests started rolling in like you wouldn’t believe it!
I’ve seen all sorts of stuff get rented out on Ruckify so don’t be surprised on what kind of items you can rent out on there. They also have a great support team that can help you find leads and renters so take advantage of that!
