Raising $3000 In A Week

by 61 comments
Hello warriors,

Iíve been a member here for more than a year now..silently watching and learning. Iím a freelance writer and have been writing for a few years now.

Iím 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 donít 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.. Itís important that I raise this cash.

Iím seeking advice as Iím 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. Tommyís 24-hour flipping method is
inspirational, but Iím 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. Iím 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 WSOís 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 didnít
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.

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

Iíd 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.
  • Profile picture of the author Oosha
    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.
  • Profile picture of the author Colin Evans
    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...
    • Profile picture of the author Oosha
      Colin,

      I'm a writer and currently make about $150/day. There's only so much writing one can do in a day. Yes, I'm fishing for ideas that can help me make 3k in a week's time.

      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. Iím 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 WSOís 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 didnít
      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.
  • Profile picture of the author Colin Evans
    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.
  • Profile picture of the author Oosha
    Colin and Paul, yes I could do a writing WSO but since I can't stop writing for my existing clients, it can't be for 3k. I could look at 1K perhaps.
  • Profile picture of the author Gene Pimentel
    Oosha, I know how it feels to be in your position. I don't know if I can help you make $3,000 in a week, but I'm willing to set you up a free domain-flipping account to help get you there. PM me.
  • Profile picture of the author debra
    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.

    Just me 2cts...
  • Profile picture of the author Tuzic
    hi, ,

    what you currently make is really good so i think you should continue this & market it more so your looking to mulitply the $150....then u will be on your way.
  • Profile picture of the author Oosha
    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.

    Thanks again!
  • Profile picture of the author Oosha
    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

    Which would be like

      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.

    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!
  • Profile picture of the author John Hillage
    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.
    • Profile picture of the author ladyjane
      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!
  • Profile picture of the author erinwrites
    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
    • Profile picture of the author cherylwright
      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.



      Cheryl

    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.
    • Profile picture of the author AndrewCavanagh
      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 !
    • Profile picture of the author Oosha
      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 ďanotherĒ 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, Iíll be able to return the favor.
