March 5, 2015: Work on Commission

You may not be a salesman by trade, but if you’re out of work or need extra cash, you just might be able to use some tried and true methods from that trade…

If you’re looking for a job, but can’t get anyone to take a chance on you, try offering to work on commission. Basically, you’re telling a potential employer they don’t have to pay you unless you bring new business in for them. When that happens, you’ll make a percentage of the overall sale.

This technique not only works in the travel and retail industries, but is great to offer to new business owners in your neighborhood as well. That way, they’re not risking losing and money on you, and you’ll be able to tell within a short period of time whether this can be profitable for you or not.

Some online businesses will even offer payment for online referrals or affiliate sales if you prefer using your social networking skills. Working on commission isn’t for everyone, but it just might be the boost your budget needs!
