A way out if you are absolutely desperate:

Step1. Sign up to promote a popular affiliate product from a fast paying affiliate platform (JVZoo, WSO etc)

Step 2. Promote the product by using free Social Media traffic, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. Create a special fan page for the product on Facebook. Use video & free blogging to create value content that links back to your affiliate link.

Step 3. Scale up with other products.

Absolutely, you can have free traffic from tons of places (socialmedia too)

Why not to select affiliate products for targeted "Premium" niche? (I mean niche on which products are high ticket )

here are a few things that i have picked up that can help someone who is desperate as the return from these can be quicker and you can get to work quickly without having to do a lot of home work.
-making sales stuff on Ebay.
-getting short term un-preferable jobs that people do not usually like.
-give services you can be good at. like social bookmarking, link building, etc
-content writing
-working as a ghost writer.
-doing research for others

I'm glad this thread is still going strong but it saddens me just a bit. When selling anything from a desperate state, buyers typically sense that. If they do smell desperation, they will run.

So if any method or suggestion on this thread is attractive to you and you're desperate, please try your best not to come of as desperate to your potential customer.

OK.

I'm gonna say freelance your skill set. Fivver, Upwork. start simple, copywriting, data entry, personal assistant.

If you have no skill set then go to garage sales and buy low and resell physical products on eBay.

Has anyone thought of offline income streams. Can't see any and it wasn't specified

Enjoy

I think it's unique to the person. I mean, I can describe what I did but it won't work for everyone:

I had no work history outside of doing labor for contractors, no vehicle, and lived in a small town where even retail jobs are hotly contested. I had a criminal record, minor but enough to count me out for most jobs with everything else piled up against me and my previous ventures had kind of fallen apart while I was away for six months.

I landed a temporary job, thing is despite my history I'm actually quite presentable and well-spoken but when the time for a background check rolled around I was out despite my GM trying to keep me on. In the mean time I'd taken to doing handyman work, some retail arbitrage through Facebook groups, and reselling antiques.

I ended up having to do community service nearly full time in order to get my record cleared, and I decided that I was going to start writing. Had no idea how to do a proposal, what was going to be expected of me, but I knew I could string together coherent sentences and I was spending a ton of time making long, informative posts on forums anyways.

I started in February. I was pulling over a thousand dollars a month by April. Started doing some marketing consultation that month as well.

I got ill in May, had some clients who wouldn't take "Dude, I'm in and out of the hospital right now. Here's someone I know's profile, I can't do this right now." as an appropriate response for why I missed a deadline and had my reputation on Upwork shot to hell. I rebuilt my career, using the same profile although it was a bit of a grind and I ended up with a part-time job in the mean time.

Now I'm planning on launching a website for my content and copy services, and dabbling in IM since I have few costs of living as I'm downsizing everything for some future plans.


Pretty much, I just hustled. I had at my disposal a ton of blue collar skills, the ability to write, and zero starting capital. You might have more or less.

That is such a great point. When I first went self-employed full time as an in home computer tutor and virus removal specialist here in Honolulu Hawaii, I practically begged for appointments offering my whatever you're comfortable with price. As I got very busy I had to hum and haw over the phone during calls trying to find openings. This created a larger sense of urgency in my prospective clients.

Slightly off topic, but whatever you're doing, try to do it from a position of power. Make the customer want your service or product.

GET A JOB

Never risk the money you really need to.

In fact, if you're desperately, you will be the next victim of a scammer.

Scammers out there are waiting for desperate people to sell the dream to make money fast.

Budgeting has been the key to removing a lot of stress from my life. Though I need to stop being so lazy, stay focused and get things done.

uber or lift? Make some money driving people about. Do you have any stories or amazing adventures you have been on? create a digital prodcut/kindle book and sell those.
