It is quite normal for students to be cash strapped. We often hear: "I can not afford it, I am a student." It is common to see students working at part time jobs, for little money, and then once graduating they spend years paying off the student loan.
But things could be different. Technology has opened doors to anyone that is willing to work at making money. They have more options now. One option is generating an income form the internet. There are lots of possibilities to make money online fast-free, but one that could work very well for students is internet marketing. Internet marketing is a very flexible option as it does not require lots of time, it does not require the student to commute, and also can be done whenever he wants to. In addition the start up capital required is minimal. All one needs is a computer and an internet connection
To clarify, internet marketing involves selling a product over the internet. You could develop your own physical or digital product and sell it over the internet or promote other people products, which is known as affiliate marketing. When you become an affiliate of certain products you get a specific link. If someone clicks on your link and buys the product through that link you, as the affiliate, get a commission. There are thousands of companies that are looking for affiliates on the internet.
It is best to promote products that you are interested in, so you can really transmit your excitation about the product to the potential buyer. As said before you do not need any capital except a computer to start this business. Becoming an affiliate is free, and you can always promote the products just by writing articles and submitting them to directories. This is also for free. There are also paid methods to promote, but if you are just starting I would suggest you make money online fast-free first.
Since this option is quite flexible, it is a great option for students to generate an income and offers the possibility to generate enough income to pay off their student loan before graduating.
