College is supposed to be the time of our lives… so why do we have to be so broke? We all know what it’s like to be the “starving student”. Everything is so expensive! Classes, books, housing, beer : ). Every time I feel like I have some financial breathing room, something comes up… Regardless of whether or not you’re seeing extra funds from your parents, we are all searching for opportunities to either make or save money while we juggle our crazy college schedules.
As BookRenter’s marketing intern I’ve been tasked with the opportunity to promote a simple way for my fellow students to make money. How cool is that?
Recently BookRenter launched a program where, YOU, the student (or an organization you’re part of) can open your own online textbook rental site. The website for your site shows your name, so people know it’s related to you; and all the website pages and technical stuff is handled by BookRenter, so don’t worry about knowing HTML or anything like that. Having a store gets you 8% on every order, which comes out to about $8 per person who orders on your website.
Sounds good, no? It takes 2 minutes to set up your store (see some examples below) and start earning cash. If you’re part of a fraternity, sorority or other organization, just think about how this could impact the way you raise funds. Every student needs textbooks – and they’ll save 75% when they rent from your store.
Here are a few examples of live stores:
