Start Making Money By Delivering Phonebooks For A Second Job
There is no question that times are tough right now. People constantly losing their jobs, businesses going under left and right, and many people are getting jobs on the side just to get by. The need to find a single job is of utmost importance to many, while others are simply looking to make more money outside of their job. Whatever the case, if you are looking for some extra cash, you can start to make money by delivering phonebooks.
This is a fairly simple opportunity that can make someone a reasonable wage per hour. You are reasonable for paying for your own gas and using your own car, but the rest is provided. In some cases, you will be reimbursed per-mile from anywhere from $0.30 to $0.55 a mile driven in your territory. It may be important to point out to some that these phonebook delivering opportunities will require you to wake up in the early hours of the morning. This will sometimes be around 4 A.M., depending on the size of the assignment.
How Do I Get Started?

Finding opportunities for delivering phonebooks is not an impossible task. You can start by calling the HR department at your local telephone service provider. If you happen to have an old phonebook which was delivered to you, check the covers or first few pages. Often times a number will be listed here for this opportunity specifically. Otherwise, call the number for the switchboard and ask to be transferred. If this does not prove to be successful, it’s time to try a different option.
Contacting your state’s Public Service Commission may also yield a promising lead.
