How to make an extra $500 per week
A lot of people answering here will put you into the direction of Shopify, affiliate marketing or Amazon FBA. These are all great businesses, but I never had much success with them so I wanted to share a different perspective that not many people know. I think the best way to make this kind of money online is app re-skinning. Last year I was able to make over $15,000 working just 1 hour per week. Your goal of $500 per week ends up being $26,000 in a year. This is about double what I made. I honestly think you can achieve this goal if you work just 2 - 4 hours per week re-skinning apps. The best part is that you don't need to know how to code!
Re-skinning apps is a pretty simple process. Basically, you purchase/create a template, change the graphics of the template, and then sell the app. The entire process will take between 1 and 3 hours depending on your experience. After having re-skinned apps for over a year now, I've found that the typical re-skinned app sells for between $100 and $300. However, I've had single re-skins that have sold for over $2,000! Having just a few of these types of apps sell, could already push you really close to your goal of $500 per week!
If re-skinning sounds interesting to you, I would first recommend looking at Chupamobile. Chupamobile is a marketplace to buy app templates. They usually cost between $50 and $250. However, once you buy a template once, you can re-skin it an unlimited amount of times! After you decided on your first template, you're going to need to re-skin the app. I've found that simplicity is the best when re-skinning apps. I typically just change the icon, colors, screenshots, text, and backgrounds of the app. I wouldn't try to add features because this is time consuming and the return isn't usually that great. After completing the re-skin, you're almost finished with your first app! Now you just have to sell it on Flippa, a marketplace for buying and selling apps and websites.
This method is pretty unknown around the internet, but if it sounds like something you want to try, check out my YouTube Channel to see in-depth videos on how to re-skin apps efficiently. Also, join my Facebook Group so you can talk with other beginner re-skinners and learn from the experts too! I think if you put in a solid 3 hours per week on this (maybe a little more at the start) you can easily surpass your $500 per week goal. Good luck!
