How I Made $250 Profit in 30 Minutes By Flipping 8 Books
Still the greatest side hustle on earth, hands down.
“Why Not Me? by Jarrylew” is an e-commerce and investment newsletter that focuses around the idea of using efficient income to become self-employed and financially free.
Nothing like this exists on the internet and you’re guaranteed to learn something new by subscribing.
As we move further into 2022, flipping books online is still the greatest side hustle of all time.
Nothing else makes as much money as it does, given the same amount of time to work with.
Anyone who can use an extra $500-$3,000 per month and has a couple of hours per week to spare, should be doing this.
You don’t have to be an expert of any kind, you just have to start.
It’s really that simple.
Here are some examples of books I have flipped recently, to show exactly what’s possible.
Here is a book I got for just over $29 on eBay that sold for $80 on Amazon, with ease.
I got an extra dollar off by combining my Credit Card rewards (2%) with Rakuten (1%).
If you aren’t signed up for Rakuten yet, do so here.
You’ll get $30 for free after you use it once.
Cost Basis: $29.10
Sale Price: $80.00
Profit After Fees: $29.93
It is rare that I ever buy more than one copy of a single book, but I had to with this one.
The price of $47.50 (5% cash back Amazon credit card) was too good to pass up.
While I had hoped to sell these for around $140 over several months, I met some competition and settled for quick sales instead.
All four have already sold for just under $97.
Cost Basis: $47.50 per book
Sale Price: $96.62 per book
Fees: $23.64 per book
Profit After Fees: $25.48 per book
Total Profit: $101.92
This history book was a great find at $36, it sold for $100 almost right away.
It took maybe five minutes to stumble upon, buy, and then list on Amazon.
Five minutes to profit over $40? Who wouldn’t want that?
Cost Basis: $35.71
Sale Price: $99.95
Profit After Fees: $42.31
Here we have another typical flip, where I was able to sell the book for over double the purchase price. (This is what I always try to aim for)
I paid $52 for the book and sold it for over $120, not much more you can ask for!
Cost Basis: $51.77
Sale Price: $121.21
Profit After Fees: $43.03
There isn’t much to say about this one. We got for around $37 on Amazon and sold it for almost $100 back on Amazon.
It’s that simple.
Cost Basis: $37.39
Sale Price: $94.95
Profit After Fees: $36.38
Total Cost Basis: $343.97
Total Revenue: $782.59
Profit After Fees: $253.57
Time Invested: 30 minutes
I can’t tell you how crazy it is to make $250 from only HALF AN HOUR of work.
This is the type of efficient income that ANYONE can create, if they take the time to learn the process and remain patient.
Once you learn the system, you get better at it, and you can even outsource it.
I will not stop talking about this, it’s just that good.
