Learn How to Find Items to Resell and Make Money with Your Cell Phone
I was recently sent a complimentary copy of Barcode Booty, written by Steve Weber, who shows you in this book how to find items to resell and make money with your cell phone.
Steve contacted me some time ago and asked if it would be alright if he used one of my articles, “The Practice of Arbitrage to Earn Extra Cash From Home,” in his book. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the book to find on page 70 the section, “How to Profit from Retail Arbitrage” by Melissa Miller. He did indeed include my article in his book and gave MyMochaMoney.com some free advertising. Thanks, Steve!
Tools to Help You Make Money with Your Cell Phone
In Steve’s latest book, he reveals all the tools he uses to make a full-time income on Amazon and eBay. One of his treasured tools is a scouting app on his iPhone. This allows him to find all sorts of inventory to resell, no matter where he is.
A scouting app on your phone eliminates the guesswork, errors, and inefficiencies in reselling. It provides an opportunity for anyone to earn extra money in their spare time. If you shop, you can earn extra cash.
I’m very familiar with this technique. In fact, one of my own favorite stories is how I made $40 an hour shopping at Barnes & Noble. You can read the details in my post, “I Just Got Paid $40 an Hour to Shop at Barnes & Noble.”
Basically, I used my cell phone to make money by looking up books on Amazon that were sitting at Barnes & Noble’s discount table. When I realized I could make money by purchasing them and reselling them on Amazon, I bought a bunch of them.
There is somewhat of a learning curve with Mr. Weber’s techniques, but with practice, you will master these techniques in no time!
