6 Unexpected And Creative Ways To Invest Your Money

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Weds. Oct. 9, 2019: It is a well-known fact that when people think of saving money, images of banks and securities often come to mind. While that once was the best solution to providing a nest-egg for the future, with the rising inflation and sinking annual average percentage rate provided on banking savings accounts, people that stow money away into banks are actually losing approximately 2 percent of their savings each year. To help you find a better way to keep from losing money as your hard-earned currency sits in a banking account, why not check out these six unexpected and creative ways to invest your money.

Investment Trusts

Small amounts of money are not usually a viable option for investments
in real estate, but there is a program the lets you do just that. The Real Estate Investment
Trust program
 offers a safe and secure way
for you to invest in a real estate option with others. That means you are one
of a larger group, so you split the dividends, income, and problems. You can
find two types of programs in investment trusts. The first type is the mortgage
REIT which invests in money-producing properties and collects income on the
interest of the investments. The second type is the equity REIT which buys
into, owns, and operates an income-producing property. Money is generally
divided up twice a year, though some distribute quarterly. On average, the
yield is about 5 percent annually.

Online Business

If you have a little money, perhaps $10,000, and you may want to invest
in a cash producing business online. There are many established businesses
working online that allow you to earn a passive income while you diversify any
income streams. Most of these online businesses and websites are monetized
through the use of affiliate marketing or memberships. Most online businesses
can generate up to $1,000 a month. The websites are auctioned online through
marketplaces, and there are many available each day. You will have to be an
active participant in the business to make it work and grow, but for an
immediate return on your investment, this can be an excellent place to put your
money.

Emerging Markets

Most people shy away from the newest and latest
businesses
 that come out as public
emerging offerings because they are just that – new and unproven. However,
there are some investments that can make you millions in a few months. Consider
cryptocurrency or the pot industry. Both rose almost over night and took over
their respective fields to make the investors millions. Although the ROI was
shaky at first as the legality of both issues was questioned, the potential for
money growth continued to grow even while the legal battles were being fought.
The result was a tripling of investment money in a single year.

Overseas Property

Investing in foreign property doesn’t have to be as daunting as it may
seem, and the opportunities for ROI are exceptional. With an average of over 15
percent return, it can be a secure way to earn a second income. Because there
could be complications with foreign capital and conversion rates, it is
recommended that investors open accounts in local banks like the GBTI that can also help with additional investment capital if you
require the money. When locating foreign properties, make sure you have a plan
before you spend the money. Also, know the market and how it will influence the
growth rate of your investment in the coming years.

Begin Blogging

You may have heard the term a million times and wondered how someone
could make a living blogging, but there are people that make a six-figure income from blogs every
month. If you are building a company and you love spending time on the
internet, this may be the way for you to do something you love while making
additional money. The way a blog generates money is by referring people to
items, businesses, or products that is affiliated with the blog. As your
audience numbers grow and your referrals have more power within the numbers,
your money grows as well.

Consulting Business

Everyone is an expert on something, and everyone has the ability to
enrich the life of someone else with the knowledge they have gained just by
living their life. That is the basis of the new consulting model, which
requires people to do nothing more than teaching others what they already know.
It could be making a craft, working on computers, or coaching people to
overcome something. You wouldn’t need to hire anyone, but you could join an
existing group by buying into the company. If you want to do it on your own,
just advertise your services in your local area.

Everyone should be cautious when investing, but
after doing your due diligence, if the investment looks like a good ROI, why
not give it a chance? You never know what the future may bring, so make it what
you want it to become.
