Fix computers remotely and make cash!
The Internet brings us technology almost at an instant. People around the world take their computers to places like Best Buy’s GeekSquad, CompUSA, and Circuit City to name a few. Here’s an idea- Put them out of business! I’ll present a few ideas to you below to help you earn a few bucks easily without even getting up.
Talk to your friends and family and let them know you can fix viruses and spyware. Tell them you can troubleshoot their issues without them having to pack up their PC. There are actually quite a few free services that provide remote access to another machine on the Internet at no fee to you or the end user.
Use a service like CrossLoop and connect to their PC. Tell them that they don’t even need to stick around while you fix the PC. Just make sure not to reboot the computer until you’re sure you’ve done as much as you can to fix the issue (you may need them to re-initiate the connection after the reboot). Charge them by the hour and send them a money request with PayPal. That’s easy huh?
Many people have been doing this for quite some time now. I would say that you could help your family and friends (and even their friends) in your off-hours and make some extra revenue. This is a great way to get your name out there. Save your friends and family money while making you money. It’s a win-win situation.
