How to make money

Post by momopi » November 4th, 2009, 8:23 am

1. Find a client who needs some work done on the computer.

2. Sub-contract the work to someone else via,, lime exchange, etc.

3. Charge more $ to your client than what you pay to your sub-contractor.


Review categories at for ideas. Want to publish a book? Hire an editor or ghost writer. Have an idea for an application but can't write code? Hire a programmer and make it happen.

Interesting. Have you done that before? Is it that easy?

If one does this, will he need to tell the client that he is subcontracting someone else through the freelancing sites?

And where do you find people who need work done on the computer? If you're subcontracting to the freelance sites, then where do you get the clients from?

No, you don't tell people you sub-contract, just as you don't tell people what your profit margin is. If they ask, your contractor is your "employee".
