How to make money as a student (without sending hundreds of DMs a day)

how to make money as a student

As a student, money is usually always tight. You don't have money to go out and have fun with your friends.

You've thought about offering tutoring, but it does involve a lot of time and effort.

You also don't want to do part-time jobs like babysitting because the pay can suck and it means you'll have less time to study and have fun.

Coming up with business ideas, or starting a small business, can also be a challenge. And finding campus jobs or some high paying internship which requires real work could negatively affect your university time and studies.

You might have researched how students can make money online (because everyone seems to be doing this), but you don't have a large Instagram following so influencing is out, and you also don't want to join some weird affiliate marketing programme (bugging random strangers with longwinded DMs and filling your Facebook profile with canned before-and-after stories about some magic new product).

No thank you!

How to make money as a student 

Luckily for you, we have a money making idea that is both fun and can be done while studying. No prior experience required, no special skills needed, and it's easy to get started.

All you need is to be a student!

Did you know we have a referral program? Which means you can refer your classmates and acquaintances to Bookit and earn cash on every purchase they make at our book store.

And selling the value of Bookit is easy too! We're the cheapest BCom, Finance and Law student textbook bookstore in South Africa. Hands down!

Bookit also offers free, in-store pick ups and super fast delivery if you do have it delivered!

Signing up for our referral program is easy too! Simply look for the big orange "Refer and Earn" button on the bottom left of our home page, sign up and share your link with your friends and earn credit that can be exchanged towards buying textbooks (not silly points) each time they buy using your link!

The best thing with our referral program is that you are studying a 3 year degree at a minimum. Imagine sharing your code with lots of students so that all your textbooks are free for 3 years? Or even just one year. This would make quite a difference to your student life!

While you're making money, why not save too?

Saving with Bookit is easy too! As we mentioned, we're the cheapest Bcom and Law textbook bookshop in South Africa. It's one of the best ways to save your money while you study.

And of course, none of this will interfere with your studies; because this money making opportunity is both passive and value-added to you and your friends!
