I recently published my most recent podcast episode of The Jake Boucher Show about the easiest way to make money in 2019.

To put it briefly, it’s extremely easy to make some extra money.

All you need is a smartphone with the desire to put some effort in. If you can do that, then you’re well on your way.

How to start

If you’re not looking to be shipping out items or have a lot of inventory laying around everywhere, then I suggest Facebook Marketplace, Mercari, LetGo, etc. If you’re brand new to the reselling game, these platforms allow you to post items for sale (I suggest doing a quick Google search).

If you already have a Facebook account, then you have access to the marketplace.

This is what the selling dashboard looks like:

As you can see, it looks pretty easy to use (and it is very easy to use). Simply take a few pictures of your item, add a title, the price (do some research on the price, look at what the product sold for in other places. i.e. eBay), add the category, and write a well-written description. It’s that easy.


eBay is a little different than Facebook Marketplace. If I had to guess, 99% of deals through eBay have to be shipped to the buyer. The majority of the buyers on Facebook are within a relatively small radius.

Here’s what the selling page for eBay looks like:

As you can see, it’s pretty similar to Facebook Marketplace. Once you get the hang of it, then it will be smooth sailing from there.

What to sell

Once you know how to start, then you need to figure out what to sell.

My first suggestion is to look around your house, apartment, or wherever you live, and look for items that are not being used anymore.
