Make Real Money by Using Your Smartphone Wisely

We’re pretty much on our phones throughout the day nowadays. At least, the chunk of us that are not strictly maintaining a 9-5 job or have lots of free time in our hands. On the phone, we’re mostly scrolling aimlessly or binge-watching shows that we like. 

How would you feel if you could turn this meaningless smartphone usage into a medium that pays real money? Sounds interesting, right? 

In this post, we’ll try to explore a few different ways for you to try and use your smartphone to make money. Not all of them will work for all demographics but you should certainly find one that suits you. 

How to Use Your Smartphone Wisely to Earn Real Money?

Earning real money is one of the hardest jobs in the world. In fact, it’s the only job that we all “technically” work for. Working professionals will relate to it more than those who are yet to enter this competitive world. 

But it doesn’t have to be any harder than it is. If you make your moves in the right way, as Oberlo has projected here, you should be up and running in no time. Let’s take a look at a few more innovative ways your smartphone may bring some real value to your time. 

Paying Apps

This is definitely a legit and the easiest way to make money on your phone. In India alone, there are lots of apps that either pay real money or points that you can later redeem for money. 

Apps like SquadRun, CrownIt, FOAP, Slidejoy, Keettoo, etc. are doing extremely well in this niche. Local payment methods like Paytm, Mobikwik, or PhonePe are integrated with most of the apps so withdrawals are not really an issue. 

The most important thing when you use these apps to make money is to only use legitimate apps. If you do enough research online, you should get a clear idea of what you can expect. Never pay any app in advance. If you have to pay money to make money, it’s most likely a scam. 

Playing Lottery

As unlikely as it may sound, a lottery can be a great way to make real money online using your smartphone only. And no, we’re not referring to the roadside lottery tickets that you can buy for Rs. 10. 

Rather, we’re referring to the online lotteries you can find on dedicated lotto sites or in online casinos. If you’re not sure which lottery is best in India, you’re already covered in the link. 

All of the lotteries listed are completely legal in India and are regulated by the appropriate authority. If you’re lucky enough, you may as well have a share of massive international lottery jackpots!

Become a Social Media Influencer

Although it’s a bit of a stretch, it’s a solid idea if you can capitalize on it. We all have the capability of becoming a social media influence. All you need to do is “influence” people. There is a misconception that only celebrities can do that. 

You may not be wrong but you’re not entirely right as well. “Influencers” is a group of people with their own following. It doesn’t matter how the following is generated. So, you can start working now on building your own audience. 

Later in the road, you can start approaching small businesses to partner up with you so that you can help them sell products to your audience. In return, you’ll earn a commission. 

App Testing 

Not many people know about this but you can become an individual app tester for big companies and make a hefty earning from that. There are apps on the internet like App Nana, Test Work, User Feels, and so on that let individuals like you sign up. 

Once all is ready to go, you can select the category of apps you want to test. You should pick one that you genuinely have an interest in and where you can leave appropriate feedback as the user. Choosing random categories that you don’t have any idea about won’t work for this model. 

This is a great practice not just in India but all over the world. All emerging economies around the world show massive participation from smartphone users and it might be your window. 

Signing Off

The thought of making money using your smartphone might be intimidating at first. But if you’ve read the entire post, it shouldn’t seem intimidating anymore. Just choose any of the methods we’ve shared and start right away.
