Default Need To Make $3000/Month. Fast. Can It Be Done?

Hi, I was a truck driver until a year ago. Due to illness I can no longer drive and I am still trying to get disability. My attorney tells me my hearing could take a year and a half. Obviously I can't wait that long and even if I could they will only pay me $1,000 a month. I can't live on that.

I'm not greedy or stupid enough to believe I'll make a million dollars in 6 months with a push button program that costs $97.

Is there anyway I can make $3,000 a month quickly with little or no expense? Time and money are both running out! Thanks for your help.

Ken Stephenson

PS From the responses I have so far I need to explain that I don't need $3,000 in 30 days from now. The goal is $1,000, then $2,000 next month, then $3,000. That would equal the money I made as a truck driver. Of course I hope to make much more but $3,000 is my first goal. Thanks to everyone who for responding with some great ideas.

Hey Ken,

Sorry to hear about your health issues. While you could pull off $3,000 a month (nothing is impossible, right?), doing it is another thing.

A month is a relatively short time frame to pull off a big feat like this. I don't know what you're knowledgeable in or what skills you have, so it's tough to really give you a well-rounded answer.

Whatever it is, you've gotta think up of something and do it fast. I wouldn't suggest doing anything that is costly and something that you don't have much knowledge in, as you could end up worse off than you are now.

Without operating capitol, the odds are low. Even under the best of conditions it can take months or years for some to develop the skills and 'discover' profitable products.

You might capitalize on any special knowledge or life experience you may have, like a truckers career guide eBook you would sell for around $27.

For those with capitol, CPA offers promoted with media buys seems to be the quickest way to start making money, although there's usually a sizable research cost before profitable offers are identified. Good CPA setups might profit 30% to 100% on their advertising investments, expect to have to float your advertising budget for 30--45 days before getting paid by the CPA network.

You'll need to invest some money to get almost anything virtual off the ground. So be prepared for that.
That being said, the worst thing you can do is think small. Don't think of just surviving, think about making a lot of money. Just surviving makes you think of unemployment and just getting by.

The fastest way to earn money online would be through providing some sort of service. If you have any skills, from article writing to building sites, that would be my suggestion to start off with.

Sorry to hear about your situation. Like others mentioned, offering services is the FASTEST way to make money without cost. Can you write articles, do graphic design, SEO, websites, etc? Checkout elance.com, odesk.com and even the "warriors for hire" section here to find some opportunities. Hope this helps!

Well, in order to have that income you must acquire some internet marketing skills. Try exploring in the affiliate marketing field. Maybe you can get that. Good luck and be healed!

I agree with the service suggestion. Offer something you can do for an hourly wage, like submitting articles, posting on Craigslist or writing. Answer some of the ads in the Warrior-for-hire thread for starters. Good luck!

Need $3000 fast?

I been watching the tv show "almost got away". What I learned is that some of those depserate guys do whatever to reinvent themselves. A few of them actually found ways to get rich while on the run from the law. I bring this up because it shows that a determined person can figure out how to make money if their willing to swallow pride and act as if they have absolutely nothing to lose i.e. needed money for food or will have to eat out of garbage cans.

Now that I have been long winded, you will need to do preliminary research. Knock on every business door and ask them do they need marketing to make them money. Find seo or white label marketing group to do the work. Bang you done. $3000 in a month.

Your Welcome.

Seems a bit risky to me. Anything done with haste usually turns out bad, obviously there are exceptions....

So either you provide a service where in you get paid without costs. Or you find another job in which you can work. This is provided the health issue you have doesn't stops you working altogether.

And then there's the issue of finding a job. Much more concrete than starting IM from scratch... Apart from some exceptions the learning and failure curve are 6months+. I'd say the average is between 1-2 years.

That's an average of what I have seen, not facts, just my judgement. But I'd say its pretty accurate.

All the best.

This is the best advice in the thread. Spend a couple weeks working hard learning a specific skill, then study what other (successful) vendors do to sell their services and give it a go... And even then it's not as easy as it sounds.

If you need a fast way, article writing is definitely one of the easiest routes to take. You can work with readily available clients if you don't have time to seek out private ones.

But you won't make $3000 a month at it - at least not at first - unless you really work all day, every day or find some higher-paying clients.

sent u a PM on a paying resource in the trucking niche. I also recommend that you build a website about the trucking industry. Use a dot com domain with your keyword in the url. Use google adwords keyword tool, set on exact search, look at global results. Find a three word phrase that gets at least 1000 global exact monthly searches, and is a search phrase that means the person is ready to get out the credit card. And build another website all about you with trucking topics and other topics. This is your personal website. Worry about monetization later, just get the websites up and start adding content that is written by you.

Sorry to hear about your situation Ken, but I think what you want to do can certainly be done as long as you're able to pick up the phone or get online and maybe send some emails.

Like Tina mentioned, do you have any marketable skills, or are their things you're interested in that you could learn about...like web design or facebook fan page design?

You'd only need to sell 6, $500 services to hit 3000 - and you could easily get $500 for a small business website.

I'm not a huge fan of telemarketing, but there are some threads here with great advice and some sharp guys that have made good money by using the phone to prospect - and even if you know nothing about web design, you could outsource the actual work to someone here if you wanted.

Ken,

It sucks that it is going to take that long to get your claim taken care of. Seems a bit ridiculous to me.

You can make $3,000 a month without much investment if you tap into skills you already have. You could do work for others and use the "warrior for hire" section and sites like freelancer.com or fiverr.com to promote your work. It all depends on what you are good and and what you can become good at.

I know many have gone from $0 to $3,000 and more in a month pretty quickly by using the skills they have in order to build a business that provides a service for internet marketers.

My best advice for you is to put together a game plan and get to work. The biggest mistake that is made by new internet marketers and those new to business as a whole, is that they forget to take action. They spend all kinds of time trying to find that golden egg (or program) and they never actually use what they can learn.

There is an absolute mess of information here in this forum that you can use to help you build your income and the key is to start with one thing and master it first.

If you don't mind writing and you feel fairly comfortable with putting together articles of 300 to 1,000 words, then article marketing is a great way to go. You could use it to drive traffic to a free blog that you set up on blogger.com and you will not spend any money out of pocket.

Of course, this is a temporary situation and as you gain profits you will want to start to spend a little to make more. There are many tools out there that can take you from a small income to a much larger one as you master whichever method you choose.

Look back through everything you've learned over the years and then begin offering this as a service to others.

Seeing that your'e a trucker - consider creating a coaching program or some kind of product/workshop for those that want to also become truckers. I'm sure you could provide a TON of great content to people in your local area.

If you called for $200 a head at the workshop, you'd need just 15 people to show and you're good to go!

Being an ex trucker you must have met a lot of offline business's.

Go check out the offline forum here at the Warrior forum and read 5 or 6 pages of info.
There's fast money in offline marketing if you can deal with people on a personal level.

Diane, Warrior won't let me send you a PM because I don't have 50 posts yet. That said I will look into both of your suggestions for ways to earn some money. I don't need $3,000 in the next 30 days, I just want to work up to that level a quickly as I can. The bills keep coming even after the paychecks stop.

Fiverr is a good place to start making money, small money but it will be something to start an investment in something you think you can do.
You need to find your qualities and see what you would learn the fastest!

Just thought of another idea for you. Blog about all the different places you have traveled to and put google adsense on the site. Just a thought.
