3 Ways to Make Money at home in South Africa Today

Here are three ways you can make money at home in South Africa

1. Use the classifieds

This is becoming one of the fastest ways to make money off things you already own. All you have to do is roam around your home and find forlorn disregarded items that could still be useful to people. Place an ad and your price and see if someone is interested in buying those miscellaneous items. This is also a fantastic way to declutter your home.

 

2. Become an extra

Some people make money for literally standing in the background on a film set. Since filming in South Africa is predominantly cheaper than in other countries, a lot of movie executives and producers cut their costs and move an entire production here in order to save money. All you have to do is sign up to an agency; pay a small registration fee (normally something like R150) and the agency will provide you with details on upcoming shoots. Being an extra pays well, but you need to be on standby and possibly be on set for four to six hours at a time, depending on the scene.

 

3.    Recycling

There’s a tiny ploy to why companies recycle more nowadays, yes it’s important for the environment, but there’s some cash involved as well. Recycling your waste material is actually profitable and although it won’t make you instantly rich, it does pay well. According to MoneybagsCollect-A-Can gives you R10 per kilogram for aluminum cans and steel cans fetch 60c per kilogram.

6 Ways To Use Now to Make Money at Home

6 Ways To Use Now to Make Money at Home

There are ways to make money at home, the problem is that we don’t know about them. Now it is your chance after reading this

Here are six ways you can make more money:

1. RENT OUT A SPARE ROOM OR GRANNY FLAT

If you have a spare room or granny flat that you rarely make use of, you could earn extra money by renting it out to holiday-makers and business travellers. A popular way to go about this is to list it on the online hospitality website Airbnb, which has been around since 2008.

It’s free to list your home or room, however, Airbnb says: “We charge hosts a service fee (including taxes, if applicable) every time a booking is completed. The amount of the host service fee is generally 3%, but may range from between 3% to 5% depending on the cancellation policy selected by the host.”

2. FREELANCE ONLINE

There are plenty of freelance marketplace websites that offer a platform for employers and employees to negotiate a deal on work that could fetch a flat fee or pay by the hour. The websites include Fiverr, Upwork and We Work Remotely.

Sonia van der Westhuizen, the operations director of KrengJai, a micro work-sourcing business that hires people to do work it has secured through Upwork, says her experience of the platform has been fantastic

“We managed to land R60 000 worth of work in the first month and had a hectic time trying to deliver it. When looking for jobs on the likes of Upwork, it’s best to invest in your profile – fill in as much as possible about yourself.

“You can also do free tests via the site. It ranks you on how you did compared with others on Upwork,” she says.

3. JOIN AN AGENCY

Agencies such as RecruitMyMom have flourished because of an increasing need for flexibility and the ability to work from home.

Phillipa Geard, founder and CEO of RecruitMyMom, says: “The world of flexible working is definitely widening thanks to technology. There are opportunities, particularly in the online world, where you can have a regular job as well as something after hours. We look for people in the part-time and flexible work space, but we do have some jobseekers who work after hours.

Typically, RecruitMyMom will hire you as an independent contractor, but it also secures permanent jobs directly with companies.

Provided you get the right clearance and qualifications, you could work with children. For example, Soccermom.co.za is a placement agency that sources people for parents who are unable to drive their kids to and from school due to work commitments.

Working for this agency requires some admin upfront.

Evette Barnard, owner of Soccermom.co.za, says: “If you want to do this type of job, you have to register your profile on our site. We then conduct an interview and you have to comply with a 10-point certification process, whereby you produce things such as proof that your vehicle is not older than 10 years, that you have a roadworthy vehicle and that you’re willing to do a professional driving test within six weeks of signing up with us. We also do a criminal check and ID verification.

According to Barnard, you can earn between R2 000 and R4 000 a month depending on the number of trips you make.

4. START YOUR OWN BLOG

By blogging, it’s possible to make money through advertising, sponsored posts, brand collaborations, affiliate links, product and service reviews, giveaways and sponsored social-media posts.

Meg Peta Sproat, founder of the Boring Cape Town Chick blog, says: “Taking a product and creating an original piece of content that entertains, informs or educates is key to being paid. Use your unique voice to make something interesting and creative to set yourself apart and entice brands to work with you.”

Writer, editor and brand consultant Mandy Lee Miller, who is the founder of parenting blog Pregnant in Cape Town & Ever After, warns that you need to find the right balance: “The temptation to take any money offered regardless of the brand can be very strong. Almost every blogger I know has slipped off the slippery slope of overconfidence once or twice.

“If your content shifts from sharing your story to writing purely sponsored posts about the things you are given or paid to talk about, your audience picks up on it very quickly. And because there are so many other bloggers out there, once your readers move on, they are very hard to get back.”

5. MAKE MONEY OFF YOUR HOBBY

If you are a crafty kind of person – if you can knit, sew and crochet, for example – you could make things like clothes and blankets and sell them online through classified websites such as Gumtree. Social-media sites such as Facebook also have a number of groups where mums in particular can do business and advertise their services.

6. ANSWER SURVEYS OR DO MICRO JOBS

Companies need information all the time and you could earn money by giving it to them. There are several sites, such as Answered Insights, that offer you cash and other rewards for regularly answering surveys. Find Survey companies here

After being acquired by Informal Solutions, the micro-jobbing platform M4Jam relaunched in October. Through it, you can do simple jobs such as taking a photograph of a shop or completing a survey from your couch.

There are plenty of ways to earn extra money, and you don’t necessarily have to belong to an agency or website – you can sell things you no longer use, or you can start your own small business on the side.

However, if you are going to rely on a third party to generate an income, you must be careful about who you approach and what you agree to do because there are a lot of fraudulent operators in this space.

“In South Africa, it is illegal to ask a jobseeker to pay money towards finding work. Any job opportunity that is offered where the recruiter is trying to solicit money should ring huge warning bells. Some may say that you need to pay a training fee, but stay away from anything like that. If there is an agency involved, the agency will seek a fee from the employer, not the jobseeker,” warns RecruitMyMom’s Geard.

The New 2018 Mandela Coin

The South African Mint, a subsidiary of the South African Reserve Bank (Sarb) announced the launch of two new limited edition coins which pay tribute to struggle icon and former president, Nelson Mandela. The new 2018 Mandela Coin.

The new coins serve as a commemoration of Mandela’s legacy and what he stood for during the Apartheid era.

Notably, 2018 marks exactly a century since the birth of Mandela and the Mint aims to celebrate this milestone.

The two coins are visibly different in appearance, the one coin being bronze while the other is sterling silver.

The R50 bronze coin also depicts Mandela in his youth as a young lawyer while the R50 sterling silver coin portrays him as SA’s first democratic President.

 

Pricing of The New 2018 Mandela Coin

The bronze alloy coin is priced at R127 and tells its own tale, says Tumi Tsehlo, MD, South African Mint.

“Pricing the coin was a conscious tribute to Nelson Mandela’s legacy and our way of paying it forward. To celebrate 100 years since the birth of Mandela, and in remembrance of the 27 long and lonely years, he spent in prison, the entry-level bronze alloy coin is priced at R127.

With every coin purchased, R27 (VAT-free) will be donated to the Nelson Mandela Foundation”.

Notably, the two coins are also the second installation in the “Celebrating South Africa” theme. The first installation being the 2017 OR Tambo Centenary range.

According to the SA Mint, the series serves to educate individuals on SA’s struggle icons.

“South Africans must never forget her heroes who stood up and against injustice and inequality to usher a new era of freedom and democracy. We hope their stories will continue to be told and heard every time someone holds a Madiba or Tambo commemorative coin,” adds Tsehlo.

“Collectability is a function of craftsmanship, quality and theme amongst other personal preferences. The Mandela series no doubt ticks all the boxes and will be an amazing addition to any collection, not only because of its design but also because of the enduring value of the theme.”

List of Areas Where You Can Sell Mandela Coins for Extra Cash in South Africa

The coins can be purchased for the South African Mint’s retail store in Centurion, Elegance Jewellers in Melrose Arch and various pop-up stores in malls around South Africa.

Tselo added that they will be announcing new products in the Mandela Centenary range.

Make Money Renting Your Car Plus Your Car Gets Covered

Make Money Renting Your Car Plus Your Car Gets Covered

 

RentMyRide is South Africa’s first neighbor-to-neighbor car rental platform. The website makes it possible for anyone to run a small side-business by renting out their own car.

RentMyRide is part of a worldwide movement called ‘Collaborative Consumption’ or the ‘Share Economy’. The movement’s poster child is Airbnb.com. This 25 billion dollar company makes it possible for anyone to turn their home into a hotel.

 

According to Peter Puren, CEO of RentMyRide, the sharing economy is a movement born not only out of necessity but just plain old common sense. “It’s time to start utilizing your assets to their fullest extent.”

RelayRides is the biggest neighbor-to-neighbor car rental company in the US and currently has almost 100 000 cars on their website. Drivy, which started in France and is rapidly spreading all over Europe, currently has more than 26 000 cars listed. Similar companies are thriving in almost all big cities around the world.

Car owners can now enter the South African car rental market, previously almost inaccessible to the man on the street. Owners can make anything from R2500 to R11 000 a month from a single vehicle.

Renters can save at up to 40% compared to regular car rental companies and they have the wider selection of choice.

Renting out your own car can be a daunting thought at first, but RentMyRide makes it easy and safe. Their 10 million rand insurance policy which includes 24/7 roadside assistance should put your mind at ease.

Renters create a profile on RentMyRide.co.za and then their details are screened. Car owners set the availability and price of their car. They then get notified when a renter requests a booking.

Owners control who they rent to and can accept or deny a booking request. Once a rental is complete, owners and renters can review their experience for future user’s benefit.

RentMyRide is launching in Cape Town and from there will spread out to form a nationwide network of car owners and renters.

One of RentMyRide’s early adopters, Mike made R42 000 last year renting out his car.

It was a year ago in the spring of 2014 when Mike Bunn was first introduced to an awesome new concept: earning side income by renting out your personal vehicle.

Mike was looking to start a small business, but wanted something that he can do in his spare time and would not interfere with his full time job as an accountant. He came across an ad by RentMyRide that offered to rent out your personal vehicle.

As an early adopter to the RentMyRide program Mike has a lot to say about his experiences as a RentMyRide owner. Register Your Can on RentMyRide

How did you decide to rent out your first car on RentMyRide?

After seeing that initial ad to RentMyRide, Mike recognized a great opportunity.

“At first I was a little bit skeptical about renting out my car to strangers, but looking at RentMyRide’s R10Million insurance policy gave me peace of mind. I thought I will first play it save and only rent out my older model 2007 VW Polo and see how it goes. The car was mostly out on longer term rentals to international volunteer workers and some overseas university students. The international renters were a bit more conscientious than the South Africans. One German even had the car polished before he returned it. After a few months I bought two more cars to rent out.

He has since enjoyed how RentMyRide has a very personal feeling that is all about community and its marketplace. Register Your Can on RentMyRide

What are you using the extra income earned through RentMyRide for?

RentMyRide has been a great addition to Mike’s own paychecks. His side income of more than R9000 per month has been nice and steady, allowing him to meet two different objectives —building his own business, as well as having discretionary spending money to use as he pleases.

“I use the extra money for a variety of things…with all the price increases some extra cash always comes in handy. I have also recently spoiled myself a bit and bought a 700cc Smart Car to have some fun in over the weekends.”

As for building my own business, “I realized renting out cars is an easy way to start small and grow my business when I can afford it. Also all the terms and conditions, signing of contracts, the booking system and payment system are done by RentMyRide. They have a robust R10 Million insurance policy and also supply 24/7 roadside assistance and customer support. It really is personal car rental made easy.”

Online Gamblers and Operators in SA Might Be Jailed 10 Years or Fined up to R10 Million

You may not know it, but online gambling is illegal in South Africa. Nevertheless, it’s a booming industry that is hitting licensed casinos hard.

The National Gambling Act of 2004 bans all “interactive” online casinos and games such as poker and bingo.

Numerous online gambling sites exist and some estimates suggest that tens of thousands of South Africans have active accounts.

The most popular online gaming platform in South Africa is Costa Rica-based “Realtime Gaming”.

Online gambling represents a massive loss in tax revenue and has the potential to slash visits to “land based” casinos. Online gambling in Europe, where it’s legal, has caused casino visits to fall by 20 percent.

Casino and horse-racing revenue fell by 0.6 percent in 2014. According to the National Gambling Board, gambling revenue totalled R21.8 billion while the industry paid R2.2 billion in tax.

Gamblers and operators face a maximum penalty of R10 million and/or 10 years in jail.
