Raising $3000 In A Week

by Oosha 61 replies
Hello warriors,

I’ve been a member here for more than a year now..silently watching and learning. I’m a freelance writer and have been writing for a few years now.

I’m also into internet marketing, but on a very small scale. I have more theoretical knowledge than practical. Writing keeps me busy all day and I don’t seem to find time for marketing.

I need your advice on what can be done to earn $3000 in a week. This is usually what I make in a month. Without going into detail here, let me just say.. It’s important that I raise this cash.

I’m seeking advice as I’m unable to figure out how this can be done. I also know that the Warrior Forum is a place where I can expect to get some sound advice from the many experienced and senior marketers here.

Here is a list of what I think could be done:

1. Create websites with content and flip them. Tommy’s 24-hour flipping method is
inspirational, but I’m not sure if $3000 is an achievable target for someone who takes
a couple of days just to create one website. Then there is the content that needs to
be written.

2. I’m working on an e-book on general health. Complete that and market it.

3. Write some articles and have a PLR WSO. Most of the PLR WSO’s here seem to attract
very few buyers, going by the people who post in those threads. I may be totally
wrong here.

4. Promote my existing website on acne, which I created a couple of years ago but didn’t
really get down to promoting it much. I make a couple of sales of the affiliate product
each month, using adwords and with a few articles on ezinearticles.com.

That’s all I can think of right now. Would appreciate any suggestions on what I could do to achieve this target.

I’d like to thank all of you in advance.

    I don't want to be discouraging, I certainly think it is possible to work your way up to making $3000 in a week, but I think it would be very challenging to start out from next to nothing and make that much that quickly.

    As I would suggest to anyone who urgently needs cash quickly - I'd look outside the IM market. If you don't yet have a reputation, a list of customers, or potential JV partners and a fantastic already developed product, I don't know how you'd make so much money so quickly.

    People who develop products that make a lot of money generally take at least some time to work on them, perfect them, get other people to review them...

    You'd be better off at this point looking at getting a personal loan or borrowing against something that you have, like a vehicle or home, if you urgently need cash. I'm not saying that's a great way to make money, but it can be an emergency short term solution.

    PLR articles can make money, but my experience with it has been mixed. It seems to be picking up for me but it didn't happen immediately. An acne website is great - you should work on that for the future and build your success. Perhaps flip it when you get steady income rolling in.

    Thanks for your response, Dana!

    I do understand that creation and promotion of a product takes time.

    Yes, there are other offline options to raise this money, but I want to look at them only if nothing works out.

    Even if there's a remote possiblity of being able to make that much in a week, I'd like to give it my best shot.

    There is no reason why you shouldn't be able to make $3000 in a week, but the circumstances you find your self in will determine how successful you are.

    If you already have a workable plan and a support group of other successful marketers to keep you on track, you could do it.

    I get the feeling you are fishing for ideas, and going on my experiences by the time you've decided on a plan of action, your week will be long gone...

    So my advice to you is not to think of what you can make in the next week, but rather what can you do every day from now on that will make you $10 per day?

    Once you reach that goal, raise it to $20 per day, and so on...

        Hi Oosha,

        First of all Congratulations on making $150 a day in IM/Writing. Many do not do that. Which leads me to this...

        Spend a day writing a report on how you do it. IF you have some unique tips for writers and wannabe writers on how to write, how to sell your work and how to ??? (anything else you can impart) Write a report and do a WSO. Price it right and sell RR and MRR for extra. That should get you another $1k in a week.

        In addition to your $150 a day that will be almost $2k. If you are making $150 a day that means you have customers. Contact all of your customers and let them know you are offering them a bargain on your writing service for this week only. They must pay in advance and accept delivery in the future (reasonably set future date of course). If you have built a trust relationship with your current clients that will be no problem.

        My best to your efforts to make your $3k.

        There are other things I usually say in posts like this but I've put them in my Warrior blog. It tells how I have made $1,000 sometimes more and sometimes less in a days work. Check my Warrior blog entry for today Oct. 1.

          I make a huge chunk of my income writing reports, mostly for the writing niche, but also other niches.

          Some pay off quickly, others not so quickly. One gem I wrote last year earned $500 within ten minutes of going on sale. It's one of my best-sellers and sells regularly.

          Find something that is highly sought-after and you'll make money. Not necessarily quickly, but you will make money.

          Most of the ebooks I write take 1-3 days maximum to write, then a day or so to set up for selling. Because I have a large and established list, I have a built-in market. This is something I believe all IM's need to have to succeed.

            Cheryl,

            I know my rates are not very high. But I'm slowly getting there...

            The idea of writing a report seems interesting, with the possiblity of making at least part of the money. But I have no list to market it to. If I did write one, I'll have to do a WSO as suggested by George.

            Thanks for the encouraging post!

        Oosha, I would like to respectfully say your are charging rates that are too low.

        I am also a writer, and charge anything from $60 to $150 an hour depending on what I'm doing. I don't write for clients all day, but instead do anything from 1-4 client projects a week. This gives me a nice income from client projects, but also leaves a lot of my time free to do the other things I like to do, like IM.

        If you want to learn how to charge these sorts of rates, check my copywriting sub-site: http://copy.writer2writer.com

        Or the main site: http://www.writer2writer.com

      a couple of days just to create one website. Then there is the content that needs to
      be written.
      As someone who flips alot of websites I can say it'd be near impossible to make $3000 in a week flipping brand new sites.

      2. I’m working on an e-book on general health. Complete that and market it.
      This could probably be done, but again, how possible would it be for you to have the money in your hand by the end of the week?

      3. Write some articles and have a PLR WSO. Most of the PLR WSO’s here seem to attract
      very few buyers, going by the people who post in those threads. I may be totally
      wrong here.
      A PLR WSO will be lucky to get a few hundred dollars, from what I've seen.

      4. Promote my existing website on acne, which I created a couple of years ago but didn’t
      really get down to promoting it much. I make a couple of sales of the affiliate product
      each month, using adwords and with a few articles on ezinearticles.com.
      Promoting a site such as this won't earn you $3000 in a week - but why not try selling it if you're desperate? If you're earning $200-500 a month with it and it's a few years old you should get close to $3000 if it's a good site.

      I don't want to sound discouraging (maybe it's too late for that) but the only viable option I can see from the above list is selling an existing site or sites. Again, it'd be almost impossible to have the money in a week though (if you're going through Escrow).

      $3000 a week is possible, but if you haven't earned that much in a week before it's going to be very difficult.

        Martin: Thanks for your input. I did think of selling it but it hardly makes around $50 to 75 with 2 or 3 sales a month. I guess I could put up some more content and see if I can sell it.

    You shouldn't find that difficult then, you're already over the "How do I make $100 per day" hurdle...

    All you have to do is increase your effective output by three times, or write an info product on how you make $150 per day...

    Or set up a writing gig for other marketers where you presell your output... Take orders for the next six weeks with 50% up front, that should bring in $3000 quickly, but then you have to make damn sure you fullfill the orders.

    The only way I see you earning 3000k in a week at this point is to use the leverage of other peoples list.

    A report is fine on the basics of writing. You would have to bring to the table value with a twist...

    Example:

    Senior citizens and soon to be senior citizens are currently searching for a "second income".

    Presenting your talents in the form of audio, video and a PDF product focusing on Writing as a Second Income, would do nicely.

    Paul, I was just about to type out the most feasible options and you did it for me.

    A report and a writing WSO sound good to me, in terms of getting some cash in hand immediately. You're right, I lost all day figuring out what needs to be done but it had to be done.


    Debra, Thanks for that wonderful example. A plain report on writing may not have that edge. I haven't been the best in the PR department, so I'll have to go without a list for now.


    Gene, That's very kind of you. Will be sending you a PM soon.

    Tuzic,

    You're absolutely correct. I've not marketed my services much. The reason could be because I have wonderful long-term clients who I'm comfortable working with and didn't see the need to expand. Obviously, I can't increase my rates overnight.

    Hi Usha,

    You could:

    1. quickly write a report like suggested above about how to earn $150 a day as a writer and sell it on the wso forum.

    2. In the meantime, continue writing articles

    3. Write articles to promote your own ACNE website.

    4. Take some of your old articles and sell the PLR on the wso.

    In the title of your WSo, explain that you are raising $3000.


    I have an other idea: Run an article marketing wso, let's say that you take $60 for ten 300 words articles.

    You need 10 order for $600, that's not a lot. You could easily get 30 orders, that's $1800 dollars.

    You will just need to explain that you will deliver later on.

    Just my thoughts.

    Always focus on your strenghts. Here: article writing.

    All the best, just take action.

    I think there are several things you can do to earn 3k in one week.

    I have done very well with WS0 PLR articles. I also use sitepoint and other forums that have a buy/sell area.

    I was thinking this over but if your a writing why not post your services to someone. Most people here own blogs and need people to write for posts. Why not offer a contract service which you will post like two articles a week on someones blog for them. You should be able to earn that 3k in a week doing this. You would just need a contract written up and a fax machine so you can send your signed copy. Then send the original by mail and your good to go.

    Now I dont know how much you would charge for 6 months or a year of posting but I am sure you could get around 5 per post.

    So if you take 52 weeks and multiply it by 2 which equals 104. So you have 104 posts for the year and at 5 bucks that comes out to around 520 bucks for the contract.

    I personally would charge a higher flat rate amount but if someone is making over a 1000 on a blog a month they should be willing to pay a 1000 for postings for a year or even more.

    Just my 2 cents,
    Jason

      I have done very well with WS0 PLR articles.
      I was thinking along similar lines. Have you thought about putting together a PLR pack on Halloween?

      Look at the WSO's right now. There are some that are Halloween themed...because Halloween is coming up.

      Look at what's going on in the WSO's. What is selling? What is not? Is there a theme to any of it? If so, go with it. Reap the benefit of someone else's groundwork (like the Halloween theme). People now need to fill their Halloween sites with articles...

      Oosha, reading all the posts, there's a common theme I'm seeing - you are definitely charging too low a rate. If you're working all day for $150 you're doing something very wrong.

      I earn around $300 for about two hours work for on and offline work. My rates are the same for each category.

      I do not have trouble getting clients! They find me, not the other way around.

      Someone Skype'd me from Ireland the other night, begging me to write his copy. The work he wants done will take 2.5 hours maximum, and will cost him $250. Can you feel my joy?

      It's not my time he's paying for, it's my expertise!

      You may not be able to raise your rates for your current clients, depending on how long you've been writing for them, but you certainly can for your future clients. (And if you have been writing for the current ones for a long time, it's probably time for a pay rise.)

      Also, think about this: what happens to your income if all your clients suddenly disappear?

      In one foul swoop, your income is gone.

      I'll leave you with that thought.

        I did sell PLR packages before, but not at the Warrior Forum, as I felt most of them didn't sell well.

        Cheryl, except for one client who I charge 0.05/word, for all others it is 0.04/word. That means I earn $20 for a 500 word article. In fact, I used to charge 0.03/word last year and increased my rates in 2008.

        Frankly, I was satisfied working with the few clients I have, as my plan was to start concentrating on IM and create a passive income.

        Oh yes! I can certainly feel your joy. With that sort of money involved, it’s difficult to hide it.

        If all my clients leave me…:O That’s a scary thought…

        I'll give your PLR idea a thought too.

        Thanks!

              Yeah, and the price of an Aston Martin "sounds" high to people who buy Geo Metros.

              What is your point?

              Hi Patrick,


              You might think it's high, but the clients who receive high quality work are obviously happy because they come back time after time. (I have never charged that small an amount in my life.)

              The writer who charges $1-$20 has to write ten times faster, meaning the quality cannot possible be as high.

              I guess it comes back to what price is in your comfort zone as a writer. Being paid peanuts is way out of my comfort zone.

              Each to their own. <shrug>

    Great suggestions, Franck!

    I feel there is no one method that can earn me this amount in a week. The only way is to do a combination of things. Since this 3k constitutes "extra" cash apart from my regular income, I'll have to plan it well.

    I may just go ahead with the report creation and an article writing WSO, along with domain flipping and see what happens.

    Thank you!

    Jason: my rates are more than what you've mentioned. I have some doubts, sending you a PM. Thanks!

    To be honest I don't see any of your ideas making $3k per week. In my opinion you really need to find a good niche and start to create products and build a list to sell more and back end more to, then $3k per week can be possible. Good luck.

      Wow! I must say, this thread has been very enlightening. In fact, it's motivated me to make my first post here (I discovered this forum about a month ago).

      I've been more or less a full-time copywriter for about 6 years now (I essentially work two full-time jobs--my regular, real world job and my copywriting work). I've done writing for clients all over the country, and even some in the UK. And, I've apparently been charging WAY to little. I charge $10 per 250 to 300 words. It's made me a good income, and I have a steady stream of clients, with no trouble finding new ones, but now I see I can make a lot more. I think I'm going to raise my prices. With my experience, and the testimonials I have from some of my clients, I think I can justify it.

      This thread has also given me some ideas for WSOs I could run, once I've made enough posts here! I made a list of my ideas for WSOs, so I won't forget them.

      Great thread!

        Jane, the majority of copywriters are charging too little. Mostly because they don't believe they can justify higher prices.

        It's taken years to learn the skills I need as a writer. I've studied marketing, writing, and much more. Just as a doctor charges appropriately for his services, we should charge appropriately for ours.

        I have never in my entire life charged $10 or $20 for an article. I *started off* charging at a rate of $45 an hour, and what's more, I got it.

        I have quality clients. My clients expect the best and get it. When they need another job done, who do you think they call? The cheapest? The quickest?

        Nope, the one who gives them the quality they've come to expect, know, and deserve.

        The other problem with charging too low (apart from having to work more for less) is that it affects all the other writers in the world. Trends are set by this sort of thing.

        Not much I can do about it except keep discussing it on forums such as this one.

        Oh, and BTW, I've just raised my sales page price. I was told I was cheaper than anyone else! (PM if you want details.)

    I've run a writing WSO here a few times and have had some really great luck with it. It's harder now because the WSO forum is moving much more quickly than it did a few months ago (then I managed to stay in the top two pages for about a week, now I'm on page 3 by the end of a day), but it can be profitable.

    You've had some great advice here. But I have a feeling that you're still no nearer the plan that you wanted.

    Yes, it is difficult to hit your $3k in the first week that you aim to hit it.

    So here are 2 other ideas that may put a dent in that figure and are more kind of auto pilot.

    So you can set it in motion to earn at least a part of the amount you want, leaving you to try to earn the balance.

    Idea 1
    How about writing that ebook on earning $150K then:

    1- record the audio to offer as a upsell

    2- do a WSO for the ebook and may be the audio too

    3- .... but offer all your warrior freinds who buy a nice 50% affiliate commission for their referrals. Like someone said you must leverage others to get close to your goal. And this step should create the autopilot income.

    4- Offer 70% for every referred sale after they hit 5 sales.

    Idea2

    Offer the complete and exclusive resell rights to your ebook to just 10 people at $297 each. They will have virtually no competition to this valueable book.

    Pile on the bonues:

    You can explain why you're doing this and therefore offer some great exclusive bonues (that you will deliver a little later).

    Bonus 1: As a bonus offer the buyers an exclusive pack of 10 PLR articles that they can use to promote the book which you will deliver within 2 weeks.

    Bonus 2: Offer the exclusive audio recording of the book as an early bird abonus to those who buy your offer within the next 7 days, before your book is ready in say 1 week. Of course your buyers will have resell rights to this too.

    Bonus 3: Another early bird bonus - offer an audio interview in which you reveal some more guidance tips and tricks - not difficult at all. These can be about how you arrange your daily routine. WHere you get insiration from. Reseach. Generally info that helps but is not a part of the main book.

    Oh as for the interview as any fello IMers to talk to you and ask say 10 questions. That'll be a 1-hour recording that your buyers (resellers) can offer as bonuses to help them sell the ebook.

    What does everyone think?

      Sami, that's fine, but I'm a great believer in only selling products/programs that you've lived yourself and can confidently teach to others.

      This thread is pretty much proof that Oosha is unable to do that.

      So unless she can coerse some big-name Gurus into revealing their secrets (at no charge to Ooma) I doubt she could pull this off.

        Hi Cheryl

        I was referring to a book about making at least and very conservatively (based on Oosha's very low pricing) $150/day from wirting.

        YOu may be thinking about writing a book on how to earn $3K in one week.

        Ooosha is living proof of $150/day (& more given your advice about pricing). AND I totally agree with you - "always be true to yourself and to others". SO I wasn't adcovating anything other than the reality of what Oosha is already doing.

        By the way, I know one marketer who pays $1k/month to someone to write 1 ebook/month. So finding 10 people for a $297 product + bonuses shouldn't be all that hard.

          Hi Sami,

          I obviously misunderstood - apologies.

          It would be nice to earn $3,000 a week, but alas, that's not me. I don't work my butt off, but I could easily do it, I'm sure.

          There are already a few books around that tell you how to earn $100 to $150 a day as a copywriter, so if another one were to be produced, it would probably need another spin put on it.

          Also, there was recently a WSO teaching writers how to make $40 an hour (), which apparently did well.

          What I've found with my ebook writing career, is you need to write about something a little more out of the ordinary, something that's not readily available, or cover something that no-one else has already.

          There are so many ebooks available that you have to tightly target your audience - no matter the niche.

          That's my experience anyway, and of course, most of my experience is in the writing niche - which is desperate for good quality books btw.

          The criteria to make money in this niche would be:
          • high quality content
          • reasonable price
          • generous affiliate program (no less than 50%)
          If you were going to do that, I have the contacts to get you started. I have JV's with several owners of writing websites, but we all work to the same criteria: we don't promote anything we haven't reviewed ourselves.

          The reason for this is there has been a lot of pure junk produced lately, because people have realised the writing niche is sadly lacking in products. (Guess what I've been doing the last few years? )

          Those of us who own sites of this niche have been burned by a few bad books. So now we never promote without a review copy. We stick together like glue over this. Why? Because it's our reputations on the line.

          Okay, I've rambled. I hope it's helped.

            I've been paid $1,000 to $3,000+ to write short, lead generating reports for businesses.

            That's another interesting area you could consider.

            But your chance of getting paid those fees if you position yourself as a writer are slim to none.

            On the other hand if you're positioning yourself as a marketing expert or marketing consultant and selling the results a report like that can get for your client then your chances of getting paid a premium price get quite good.

            In other words if I give a business owner an idea that could potentially make him $10,000 this month and every month to come it's not such a big stretch for him to pay me $3,000 or more to do what it takes to implement that idea.

            A good lead generating report can often make a business those kinds of profits.

            But if I'm approaching a business offering to write a report for them as a writer I've just positioned myself as a writer.

            They're thinking "how long does it take you to write a 5 page report? How much do you charge per hour".

            You'll be lucky if you get $200.

            You want them to be thinking "he's going to help me make thousands of dollars every month with his great new system".

            That's how you get thousands of dollars for writing 5 pages.

              Sami, You've given a blueprint to making money, but its going to take time for me, as I haven't done this before. I know I can do anything I put my mind to, but the time factor here is of concern to me.

              I think the idea of writing an e-book on how I got to the $150/day mark is good. That's going to take atleast 3-4 days and then as Cheryl says, it has to be something out of the ordinary for it to provide anything of value to the readers. I've already started working on it as I have enough experience and things I can share with others.

              George gave an excellent suggestion of taking advance payments from my existing clients. I've actually emailed a couple of them first thing this morning. I usually take payments after completing the projects, at least with long-term clients and clients I trust.

              Bev, I'm going with a PLR WSO first. I also like the idea of creating long reports. I'm actually deciding on a niche right now.

              There's something else I'd like to know. How would a well-written e-book on health fare? Any suggestions on that?

              It's most gratifying for me, to know that there are so many warriors willing to help me out.

              Thank you all!

              Andrew,

              That's a thought-provoking post.

              I read a lot and have plenty of knowledge on how things work, but implementation is something else.

              For example, to be able to give a business owner ideas on how to generate leads in the form a report that does make a difference to the business, I'll first have to experience that myself by implementing and testing it out. Without practical experience, I doubt if I'll be able to position myself as an expert.

              But the idea is excellent and shows where I'm lacking. I'm glad I posted this thread. It's an eye-opener for me and tells me what I'm doing wrong or what I need to do in order to succeed.

                This is just a thought since I'm not sure about 'seminars' in India, but if you can do this, this is what I would do here where I live in the US. (Fort Lauderdale, Florida)

                Google- "writers groups (Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Dade County, Florida, South Florida, etc)

                *also, variations on the word 'clubs' for 'meetups' 'groups' etc.

                Look at each and ever site. Find contact info for the person who runs the group. Call them on the phone or email them and tell them that you make money selling your writing online and that you have a free report that they can give to their group. (Step 1: Build the relationship)

                Step 2: Write report with link to your $100.00 seminar that you will be holding this weekend for only 75 people. This seminar is about how to make money writing on the web. Tell them that there are only 60 spots left, and if they purchase through your site, today only, they get a special price of only $69.00, but if they wait and show up at the door, it's $100.00 IF they can even get in since you were limited to only 75 people.

                Other groups to look for: Work At Home Moms
                Mops
                Put flyers in your local library
                Daycare centers
                Schools (High school and colleges)

                Good luck.

                  Hi Oosha, I would say you already have pretty big success. Believe me, I would kill to make $150 a day!! Everyone seems to have good ideas on here as well as your current projects. In my opinion, I think it's somewhat possible to earn 3K in a week. There are people out there that do it.

                  I say put in 100x more effort into whichever route you choose. If you normally spend 3 or 4 hours a day per project then continue with 8 hours or even up to 12. With your time, patience and experience I think you should be able to do it.

                  Good Luck!

                    Hi Oosha,

                    To be honest with you it's tough to make that amount
                    right out of the gate with the internet.

                    Once you build a list they have to:
                    * Know you
                    * Like you
                    * Trust you
                    to start buying.

                    Here's how you can raise the 3K fast.

                    Offer your services to local business owners!They already have
                    the money and will gladly spend it as long as it's effective
                    for them to do so.

                    One of my coaching students is making $350-$700 a day
                    simply installing an autoresponder form on their existing site.
                    (350 for 15 mins work)

                    There are tons of legitimate ways to help them and get paid
                    the same day.

                    Pm me for help if you need it but even Willie Crawford agrees
                    that "offline is where the instant money is!"

                    Hope that helps,

                      I guess your mindset if you want to make a significant amount of money fast is to think:

                      "Where is there someone who can put me in front of a large number of buyers or pay me a significant amount of money for my skill or someone else's skill (and I take a percentage)?"

    The idea of a PLR wso is a good one, except at the moment PLR articles are not selling as well as they did. I have had a number of warriors who have run PLR articles recently and they sold less than 5 copies.

    If you want to make $3k from PLR it is possible, but you will need to put a twist on it. You will need to do something different, which will make you stand out from the rest.

    The quickest way for a writer to earn $3k is to offer your writing services as a WSO at a reduced rate. WSO price has to be the best price, or use the classified to offer at your normal rate. But, remember that warriors are used to paying $8 an article, which means there will be less people prepared to pay the price you are looking at.

    Most of my clients are not from the warrior forum, which is why I get higher prices for my writing.

    If you are happy writing reports and ebooks, then you should consider offering them as a writing service. If you offer a 4,000 word report then you could offer it to a number of warriors and get your $3k easily.

    I recommend you create a product that solves some of the people's immediate pain. Such as people with bad credit, people losing their homes. Those are the people with pain and urgency that would buy your book immediately, thus making a lot of cash.

      If you know enough to flip and sell a website then you know enough to create a simple website for a brick and mortar business.

      If you talk to some local business owners in your area you can help them create a website that is a squeeze page and a sales page or even just a sales page selling their major product or service.

      Most of the work in doing this is writing work...writing a sales letter, writing a squeeze page and writing content to attract search engines.

      Most small businesses are used to paying multiple thousands of dollars for advertising and many have been quoted in the $5,000+ bracket for having a website made.

      You could easily charge $1,500-$5,000 to create a website designed to actually make sales for a local business (as opposed to looking pretty).

      In many businesses with high transaction values just one or two sales can make back this amount.

      You charge 50% up front to do the work so you might need 2 or 3 business clients to get your full $3,000 this week.

      But getting this money could be as simple as talking to all the business owners you already know about how you might help them get more sales using internet marketing.

      And once you've gone through that list you can talk to the friends you know and ask them who they know who is running a small business and might want to make more sales.

      And if that doesn't get you enough money you could simply walk into businesses in your local city and talk to local business owners there.

      1-3 business clients is all you would need to make your money.

      Kindest regards,
      Andrew Cavanagh

    Sometimes you can't see the wood for the trees ! or in this case the auction for the internet! I know this seems very obvious but have you considered selling some very valuable personal items for $3,000 on a 5 day ebay auction ? ie, your car or several smaller ticket items - furniture, electrical equipment etc? I know this sounds obvious but if you are genuine this is probably your best chance. Then work at building your income to $3,000 per week through tried and tested methods of internet marketing - you can then buy your stuff or similar - back through ebay! Good Luck !

      Thank you all for your excellent ideas!

      I didn't come back to this thread as I was busy trying to arrange that money. I managed to raise $1500 with advances from existing clients as George suggested and some of it from writing. I got an extension and hopefully I'll raise the rest of it too.

      I had decided not to take “another” loan in my life.

      Now, I have time to implement all the valuable advice given in this thread.

      I felt the need to share with all of you how I managed to raise that $3000, because you warriors have been wonderful. I've seen you help people, I've seen you jump on people too...but frankly, the realization of how wonderful the warrior community actually is hit me only now..when I needed help.

      Perhaps someday, I’ll be able to return the favor.

      Create a $100 product... sell two of them everyday for three weeks.

      That's $4200 in three weeks.

      That's not hard at all...

      This is all about mindset... Realistically, you have the ability to make a million dollars in three weeks.

      It's up to you to believe it!

      Don't look at your goal of raising 3 grand in in three weeks as being something difficult... even if it is difficult.

      You should look at this as a personal challenge...

      So roll up your sleeves and get to work. And after you reach your goal of raising 3 grand, come back and write a WSO on how you pulled it off

        Cashblasters: I've never sold anything on ebay before, may be I can keep that as another option.

        Franck: Appreciate your support. I'm working on my report during the weekends.

        Marc: That's just what I needed - motivation. Sometimes when we're faced with situations beyond our control, we tend to look for emotional support. That gives us the strength needed to go ahead and resolve those issues. Your post gave me renewed energy...and I mean it.

      Oosha-

      Unfortunately, I can feel your pain as far as needing to raise money fast since I have stood in those shoes more than once. I think your attitude is what will get you to your goal--you came here to this forum looking for ways to take ACTION to make a change in your situation. Kudos for that. Too many people just sit back and let things happen instead of looking for ways to make things happen.

      Like you, I have sat back watching and learning in this forum and one thing I can say without a doubt, the members here are bent on helping others succeed. What was great (yet difficult) to see was the no fluff answers that you wouldn't have gotten if you just Googled "make $3000" in a week.

      Maybe consider writing an ebook on this experience? Best of luck to you! And thanks to all those who responded to this thread--your responses, honesty and sincerity have been helpful to me as well!

        You could also flip your thinking in an instant with this exercise:

        1. Most people are so absorbed in their own problems and making money for themselves they never get outside themselves and realize the real key to making money is in giving other people what THEY want.

        So start thinking what can I provide that other people want? How can I help them?


        2. Instead of asking "How can I make $3,000 in a week" ask yourself "How can I provide $15,000+ value to someone else and get them to pay me $3,000 this week for doing that?"

        Keep in mind that many people will pay you a portion or your whole fee in advance for a service that provides them with value.

        There are an endless number of ways to provide businesses online and offline real value.

        Also if you're thinking of say $15,000 value that helps you narrow down to the kind of people you should be looking at.

        Someone buying or selling a house for example.

        How could you provide $15,000 value?

        Get them a great deal or help them sell at a higher price.

        With a business you just help them make more sales and profits.

        The exercise gets a whole lot easier when you think in terms of helping provide value for someone else and then charging a small percentage of that value.

          I have to agree with Andrew on that. It's MUCH easier
          if you think that way.

          Look for what's not there and you'll be surprised at the
          "money funnels" everywhere...especially if you couple
          it with what Andrew just said. ;-)

            When I began my first online business, I was more interested in the money side of things. But the money didn't come - for more than three years.

            I realised I was fighting a losing battle so decided to turn the site into a 'helping people' site instead of a money-making one, and the money flowed.

            So yeah, what David and Andrew said...

              Oosha, I own 10 writing-related websites. I'm amazed by how difficult it is to find quality affiliate products like reports, ebooks and ecourses designed to teach writers how to really find work and create a profitable writing business. (yes, I personally check the quality of everything I promote).

              I'd be happy to promote any report/ebook you want to write all about how to write or how to find clients or whatever (just set it up as an affiliate program let me know where to join up as your affiliate).

              I have a nice big list, so I'm sure there'll be sales. My subscribers are good like that.

  • If I had to get 3000.00 in a week and had near nothing, I'd find a great item to sell on ebay, and sell it over and over again.
    I did that myself 8 years ago and have made over 5000.00 in a week.
    Anyways that's where I'd start, and then build from there. When I started I started with just 400.00 and in about 7 days I made 3500.00 on ebay.
    BY the way I sold CNC shop equipment and oak tool chests.

      Generally speaking it's best if you don't sell just ONE item over and over again.

      That would work but it's kind of..well...illegal.

      I bet you could sell your car on ebay over and over but you'd probably get arrested sooner or later.

      Selling multiple copies of the same item is a brilliant idea if you have a supplier for those items or you can make them yourself.

      Assuming you can find something that will sell well.

      Also once you get into selling physical products remember the key is NETT profit...the money you keep from every sale.

      It's better to sell 10 x $350 products where you get to keep $3,000 than it is to sell 10 x $3,000 products where you only get to keep $2,000.

      Keep in mind what each product costs you and what profit you'll make from each sale.

      Kindest regards,

    Selling our own physical product entails packaging and shipping, so the easier way would be to use a dropshipper.

    How does it work best on ebay? Do we go with one of the well-reputed dropshippers or is it better to sell our own (e)product?
