For those of you who are students and in need of some income, there is a great opportunity for you to earn anywhere between $50 to $1000 by doing challenges on a website called https://www.mindsumo.com/. MindSumo connects college students and businesses to develop solutions to problems – the businesses have problems that require solutions and the students come up with these solutions, in return these businesses offer students some money for giving them a solution to their problems. Even if you can’t solve the problems there are instances where the businesses just pay you for proposing an idea to solve the problem even if the problem is not solved (provided it is a feasible one). Not many people go in for this sort of thing so it’s a great opportunity to try it out.
Apart from challenges you’ve got a lot of freelance opportunities as well to look into and you don’t have to pay anything to signup – to signup, all you need is a valid email address and you must be a student or be able to prove you are a student, since “.edu” automatically proves you are a student they usually accept “.edu” emails but if you don’t have a “.edu” email ID you will have to speak to them directly and then sign up for an account. After you sign up make sure you have a valid paypal ID to give them so they can make payments to you when you complete the challenges. When you withdraw money for the first time you need to have a minimum of $100 earned and after that the minimum amount for you to withdraw money will drop to $25.
If you sign up with a promo code you get $5 plus an additional sign up bonus of $30
To get $25 you have to solve your first challenge
Linking your LinkedIn account will give you another $5 and that in turn will create your resume base on your qualifications on LinkedIn
Becoming a campus ambassador gives you another $15
If you have tried it out already, please leave a comment below for others who are still new – like your experience using them or anything else you know about the program that I haven’t already covered here.
