I'm currently going into my third year of college for Electrical Engineering. This year got extremely homework heavy, and coupled with my parents having tough financial times themselves, they can't really help me out with money (I go away to school) like they were able to the past 2 years.
My extremely busy and awkward class and studying schedules make it damn near impossible to balance a normal job outside of school, so I can't see myself using the conventional way I've tried to make money.
Basically what it comes down to is I am on the computer all day. I know a truckload about the internet, computers, networks, etc, and I want to try using the internet again to make money. However, when I say "make money" I'm not trying to quit a career to make 40k a year or some of these other numbers that are advertised on the WSO section.
All I'm looking for is some ideas from people that might know some type of internet marketing or way to use the internet for a college student to make just a few extra bucks. $50-$60 a week would help my parents out a ton by not having to go into their already empty pockets to help me with food costs, etc.
Don't get me wrong, I have the drive and determination to make thousands, however as an absolute amateur in the IM world, I am more worried about getting an initial income first with little to no initial investment, and working my way up from there. I am dead broke at the moment, and cant afford to do things such as outsource.
On that note, I can do stuff to start my business, however I have bought some SEO stuff in the past that just ate up too much time out of my day, for basically pennies. I really can't spend 5+ hours a day to make just a couple bucks a week when my school work is much more important. My time is much more valuable than that. After all, I am persuing a career in Engineering, not marketing.
If any college students are on here that are willing to give me suggestions, they would be very appreciated.
