Default How would you make 2 grand in two to four weeks with no list?

Hey guys, if it were you, how would you make a completely brand new startup internet business profitable or pulling in revenue in 2-4 weeks with no list? Just looking for brainstorm ideas at the moment.

You could create a list in that time that has the potential to bring in 2 grand a month.

1. Create or find a PLR product that has giveaway rights

2. Find a keyword targeted domain name and create squeeze page

3. Sign up for a $1 aweber account to collect the emails from your squeeze page

4. Giveaway product/report/ebook with email sign up

5. Market to your list (give away helpful info and then every couple emails put a promotion in there such as an Affiliate product or a product you create.

You could also only give away the first chapter of an Ebook and then sell the total ebook to the list and then continue to give them helpful stuff and promote more products.

Its possible to have that in a month for sure.

Bingo, this is what you should do. The hard part is getting enough people to that page. If you have money I would recommend using a solo ad, if not I would say work your butt off with forum, article, and web 2.0 marketing.

I also want to say if you dont like the idea of creating a list you could do

1. Articles (submit to Ezine and others after)

2. Turn your articles into Videos using ArticleVideoRobot.com or use openoffice.org and read it yourself using software such as camstudio.org

3. In the resource box put your website or if your going to use an affiliate link you could create a redirect to an affiliate offer. (I have had success doing this)

It's not guaranteed you will make 2 grand doing that but if you take action and pick a method off of this forum you feel you could do then I know you will make money. '

To Your Success

i didn't include every detail, but here is the jist of it:

1. pick a medium-small to medium sized US city
2. do some keyword research involving that city name and the words "real estate"
3. pick a handful of long-tail keywords that have the lowest competition and highest search volume and purchase exact match domains for them
4. do some research on existing real estate lead generation website and see what kind of information they are collecting
5. create a squeeze pages collecting the same information
6. throw some backlinks at them (automated or buy from a provider)
7. write (or buy) some articles targeting the keywords and make daily posts on article directories
8. repeat, keep building more sites in more cities while waiting for the once you built to do their thing
9. monitor their performance
10. once you get some sites that are generating regular leads you can start contacting all the real estate agents in that city and let them know you have a cash-in-the-bank lead-generation system that you will be willing sell them OR they could pay you per month for a guaranteed list of qualified leads.

Real estate people go ape s%!# about leads, someone will take you up on the offer.

How much do you have to invest?

If you budget is unlimited you could outsource all the tasks and it could get results in days. However if you have to do it all your self it will take longer.

Everything mentioned already is quality stuff. Let us know what your working with (budget) to better understand the situation and give you a more in depth answer.

Spend 1 day creating a product
Spend 1 more day writing the sales letter
Spend the rest of 4 weeks recruiting affiliates and getting people to mail for it.

Thanks guys! These are some great suggestions. For the scope of this I was trying to commit $50 or less. Basically I just wanted to use that money to register a domain and get hosting.

Do any of you guys use tubemogul instead of article submission? I have no problem reading my content and using it as a slideshow video. Of course that could also be used as a product.

The idea of generating leads for real estate agents is very interesting.

I have used TubeMogul. It works great for video submission. I myself prefer not to write much so I do mostly video and it has worked much better for me.

I would say a good joint venture and promotion of some high ticket items via adwords for high volume, low cpc terms.

If you don't have a list, you need to Leverage as much as possible. You need to leverage other people or leverage the power of sites with built in traffic.

Several people have mentioned creating a product and finding affiliates, that way you leverage other people and thier list's if they have them. The other thing to do is leverage websites that have built in traffic. Twitter, Facebook, Ebay, etc.

The one big option that nobody has mentioned falls into leveraging a specific site, and that's running a WSO here on the Warrior Forum. It's one of the best ways to make money quickly because there is built in targeted traffic who are looking to buy. You would need to get some more posts under your belt and contribute a little more before you could do it, but once you have and you create your own product running a WSO is a very good option.

Damn good freelancing would cross my mind... but creating a product and say uploading ebooks about it to free ebook directories is probably better in terms of invested time and profitability...

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Bravo. This is one of the ways I do it, and making $2k is a huge
understatement on what's really possible. The toughest part is
testing it to where it IS profitable and maybe driving traffic...

well, for most people I guess. It takes time to get this set-up if
your new to it all, but this is the direction I would go if I'd start-
ed.

The other faster approach is selling products directly. I also do
this on the side and I love it.

Interested in trading currencies (forex) creating unlimited wealth earning $millions$ of dollars to raise a healthy, happy family with *no* financial worries? The Lord Jesus Christ is BLESSING YOU with this message...if it's his will...it will speak to you...PM for details if interested in this MIRACLE! - we trade as a coalition. A TEAM serving the Lord to build his Heavenly Kingdom, fulfill our desires and bless others like yourself! Step out on FAITH and ask, "What is this about?" :)

2k in 4 weeks? A huge amount of time and effort is needed but possible.

Here's my suggested plan :

1) Pick a niche and a main keyword which has at least 4000 exact global monthly searches and 50,000 or less exact match competition.

2) Find an expert in that niche and create a product with him/her. If its yourself, all the more awesome. You'll save a huge amount of time.

3) Create that product.

4) Find a cheap graphic designer to do minisite design for you. Also order an ecover for your product. You can get this done at only $50 (or even less). Look at Warriors for Hire.

5) Buy domain and web hosting. Optimally, get your domain to be the exact match for either your keyword or your product title.

6) Write sales copy or outsource. (I recommend the former, because copywriting is really easy. You don't need a professional one... it'll take weeks)

Do all this in a week.

6) SEO, SEO, and SEO. Build backlinks like crazy. Build a blog with optimized content if you need to. Order backlink completion services or packets (I recommend Angela's) and build those damn backlinks. Note : Remember to build them on your keyword as anchor text or you won't get ranked for your desired keyword.

7) Keep on doing step 6 for until you rank well and high for your desired keyword.

8) If you put in enough effort, it should rank well for your keyword now, if not #1.

9) As your site starts to enjoy its daily organic traffic on high SERPs rankings, it will naturally get sales to you. If you have time, I also recommend you to put an opt-in form on your sales page (preferably at the top).

All the best my friend.

Daryl
dude that is awesome. The stuff you guys are sharing is a goldmine. Thanks. i have 2 things to consider.
