So this is really good if you have any basic knowledge about computers and know how to Google stuff
So what I started doing is, like most of you, I started using people's stupidity when it comes to fixing PCs or using them.
Now this method will be semi useful depending how much knowledgeable people in your country are about PCs.
But if it's like in mine all you need to do is spread the word that you know your shit.
People have some silly problems with their laptops or PCs.
For example most things you will have to do is recover the data from a disk and then format it. There are more then enough free or "free" softwares out there to use which get the job done.
Now here are some of my recent jobs I did:
1. Guy went to the official service shops and they all said the HDD was fried when it actually only had a corrupt sector which was easy to fix
2. A girl complained that there was no sound on her laptop and that she took it to some shop sand they didn't know what is wrong. The solution in the end was that she muted everything in the volume mixer.
3. The desktop PC didn't want to start at all so I took it to my friend who had an air compressor and just turned that shit on. The amount of dust that came out was unbelievable. OFC after that it worked great.
Now the longest job was the first one because it took me quite some time to salvage the data. And another thing I could have done was to say that the motherboard and HDD were fried and that I managed to salvage the data so if he wants I could buy the laptop for the parts. If I did this I would have bought a great laptop for nothing and I could either resell it or keep it. I charged this guy around 50$
Second job was so idiotic that I charged the bitch almost around 100$ just for the sheer stupidity of it.
I told her I put in a new motherboard and a sound card.
Third job was for my friends sister in law so I only charged her like 15$
Now the only complicated job was the first one and I solved that by using Google
And as you can see I made quite a nice income here without wasting a lot of time or physical effort
I know that this isn't actually a life hack but I hope that this will inspire some of you to do the same and that it will help you make some money. Ohh and since I accepted only cash there was no tax.
Now for my second idea is that I make certain workshops either for excel or word on my college and ask for funding from the stupid Student Council. I think I could get my salary up to $200+ for a few days of work and the stuff would be the most basic shit ever. I also thought of charging the people for the "advanced" workshop something like 20$-30$ and giving them after it a self made certificate that they did it the course.
But I'm not sure if I'm obligated to share the money with the college.
When I check on that I will decide what to do.
So good luck and I hope I inspired you to do some work and exploit peoples stupidity.
Hey and don't just stop here use your imagination, always make the work seem harder then it actually was but make it believable. Don't say you fixed the screen on the laptop when the screen was already working or something like that.
Also pay attention if you see that people don't know how to do something you know offer to teach them for a price.
