Default This is How I Make Quick Cash when I Need It

Quote:
Someone asked me if they could share this thread with their list. I just wanted to let everyone know that you are free to share this information with your list, family, and friends. Hope it helps as many people as possible.
Almost every time I read through threads on the Warrior Forum I see someone asking, “How can I make money quickly?” There have been many times in the past few years that I have asked myself that same question.

I began internet marketing back in the late 1990's with paid to surf and paid to click programs. In 2001 I started as an affiliate and worked my way up to to the top ten list of my merchant a few years later. My sites were making about $3,000 a month passively.

The one thing I wanted more than anything in life was to become a mom. My dream was to adopt. In 2007 I took the plunge, sold the sites, and began the adoption journey. My son came home about two years later. He is the joy of my life and I am so thankful for him and our family.

Selling the sites helped pay the adoption costs, but I wasn't used to the lower income each month. I am slowly building my affiliate marketing back up, but there have been some times when I needed some quick cash for daycare, car payment, etc.

Below are all the ways that have worked for me when I needed to earn money in a very short period of time. I hope that they will help you earn extra money quickly when you need it.

Get a Paypal Debit Card

My first piece of advice if to get a Paypal debit card if you are in the U.S.. Many of the ways you can make a same day profit involve getting paid through Paypal. Paypal will transfer the money to your bank account, but that takes 3-4 business days to complete. I don't know about you, but I've been in situations where I couldn't wait 3-4 days to access my money.
The solution is to get a Paypal debit card. Once it arrives you can get paid through Paypal and then immediately withdraw your money from an ATM. It is a Mastercard debit card so you can also use it anywhere credit cards are accepted.

I recommend going to Paypal right now and ordering the card here:
https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/we...ntro&nav=0.2.2
That way you will have it the next time you are in a financial crunch and need to access your earnings quickly.


Sell on Ebay

If you sell something on Ebay and choose the Buy It Now option, you can require buyers to pay you through Paypal immediately upon purchasing your item. Then you can access that money instantly with your Paypal debit card.
This is my favorite way to make quick cash.

In the last 60 days I have made $178 through finding things in the house to list on Ebay. Generally I sell football cards because I used to collect them and know I can sell them quickly. However, sometimes I just look around the house and find something. Some things that have sold well for me are sports cards, coin sets, and clothing lots.

If I really need money that same day here is what I do. I search for an item identical or similar to what I'm sellling. Then I click the button that says completed items on the left hand sidebar.

First I click the listings that sold at the highest price. I read their description to see what information they included and it was formatted. When I list my item I try to use similar information and keywords. I also try to word my title in a way that is similar to theirs. Then I try to figure out the average selling price. I price mine about 10% less and list it as a Buy It Now.

When I have a good picture, a good description, and list the Buy It Now at a little less than the average selling price I can always sell the item the same day I list it.

Selling on Ebay gets even better starting April 19th! After that date you will be able to list up to 50 items for sale each month with no listing fee. Also, you will be able to add a Buy It Now price for free.


Sell on Craigslist

Ebay is my favorite place to sell items that are easy to ship. Items that are heavy or awkward to ship I list on my local Craigslist site. At different times I have sold stuffed animals, a mattresses, a futon, and a desk. Once I even sold some boxes from storage that were just full of odds and ends I no
longer wanted.

I always add a couple of photos to my listings. You can upload them to Craigslist right from your computer and it doesn't cost anything... so why not?

The great thing about Craigslist is that your buyer is local, you get paid in cash, and sometimes it helps you get rid of some bulky things that are just taking up space in your house.


Sell at a Pawn Shop

If something is not easy to ship through selling on Ebay, and it hasn't sold on
Craigslist, I take it up to a local pawn shop. I used to think pawn shops only bought a few types of items like jewelry and electronics.

However, I decided to give it a try and took up some things that didn't sell on
Craigslist... a crystal vase I never opened, a crystal bowl in a old torn up box, and a Precious Moments figurine I forgot I even had.

The pawn shop bought all three and I had $5 cash in my pocket. Now that's not a lot of money, but at times it's that extra $5 you need to buy a gallon of milk and cereal.


Have a Garage Sale

Do you have a LOT of things taking up space in your house that you can sell. The best option might be a garage sale. You can make over $100 in one day if you have enough items to sell.

I have only held my own garage sale a couple of times, but I do make money at OTHER people's garage sale's a couple times a year.

Here's how I do it.

Let friends and family members know that you would love to do a garage sale with them if they decide to have one. Bring the few things you do have for sale... AND a cooler full of ice and bottles of water. I stock up on water when it is on sale at CVS. Sometimes you can get it for around $0.10 a bottle in a 24 pack. Make a big sign that says Ice Cold Bottled Water and put it above the cooler.

I have charged between $0.50 and $1.00 per bottle. On hot summer days here in Florida I usually make around $50 profit just from selling the water.


Become a Dog Sitter (My Favorite Idea!)

Do you love animals? Then you can earn good money right away as a dog sitter!

My experience with dog sitting is as a buyer... a desperate buyer! I had plans to go away for spring break and made plans with my regular dog sitter.
The dog sitter canceled at the last minute, and I was left looking for a good place to leave my two dogs for the weekend. I was leaving Friday afternoon and coming back Monday evening.

All the kennels I called were going to charge me for all three days. The price was going to be over $100. Plus I would rather leave my pets with someone who has a fenced yard and a house where they can be out during the day.

I headed to the Servicesets section on Craigslist. There were dog sitters listed, but everyone I called was completely booked. After calling every dog sitter on three pages of ads I finally found someone with an opening. Her ad was really cute. It said she was a “bed and breakfast” for dogs and that they would become a part of her family while they were there. I was sold. She charged me $60 for the weekend and took payment through Paypal ahead of time.

While I was making calls I asked the sitters how much business they got from
Craigslist. Most said they got calls for dog sitting almost every day. Others had regular clients who would leave dogs with them every day while they were at work. Most of the people charged between $20-$30 a day per dog at their home. If they have regular clients and get calls every day I imagine some of them are making close to $100 a day taking care of pets in their home.

Other dog sitters didn't even keep the dogs at their own homes. They charged around $15-$20 a visit to come feed and walk your dogs. If you needed them to come take your dogs out three times a day, you would be paying them $45 a day. All they need is two clients a day to make around $100 a day feeding and walking dogs a few times a day.

For the next couple of months I am still in an apartment. However, this summer when I get into a house with a fenced backyard... I am going to put an ad on Craigslist to be a dog sitter! I love animals and it will be great to make some extra money each week by having a dog or two spend some time with us.

To me this is the PERFECT opportunity to make money if you want to work from home and love animals!


Write Articles

Once in awhile I will offer my services as an article writer when I want some money deposited in my Paypal account to pay for other ventures.

You can offer your services on sites like WarriorForum.com, WriteSwap.com, and Forums.Digitalpoint.com.

On the Warrior Forum you can pay $20 to list your article writing services in the Warriors for Hire section. If you don't have that $20 yet you could add a signature to your posts letting people know that you are available for writing along with your prices. Then you can post informative, well-written posts in the forum where your signature can be seen.

Most of my article writing days were before I found the Warrior Forum. I advertised my services on the Digital Point forums. I offered a special to the first five buyers. If they ordered ten 350 word articles for $100, they would get five articles free.

People bought those first five spots and left reviews. After that I continued to write articles in sets of ten for $100. Some people wanted longer articles so I would do five articles of 700+ words for the $100.

The reason I had people order in sets that equal $100 is because all their articles were usually on the same topic which made them easier to research and write.

When I wrote the articles I would read about the topic on Wikipedia and authority sites. Then I would think of the main points I wanted to make and just start writing in a conversational way that would engage the reader.

Lately, I buy more articles and reviews for my own sites more often than I sell them. However, for those who like writing, I believe it would be even easier today to sell sets of unique articles for $100 or more. There are always people looking for unique content from someone who does quality work.


Offer A Fiverr Gig

Full disclosure: I have not made money offering a service on Fiverr. However, I included it because I have purchased MANY fiverr gigs.

Fiverr is a site where you can make $4 every time someone buys your gig. You can offer almost anything! I have bought typical gigs like articles, links, and research. However, I've also bought promotional videos of someone dunking a basketball and someone dancing in a hot dog outfit!

Try to make your gig stand out by uploading a picture and a video if you can make one. Make your description funny or unique in some way.

One popular category is video reviews. If you have a video camera this might be a good one for you. You can complete the gig in just a few minutes and make $4.

Make sure your customers are happy so they will give you a thumbs up, positive review. Some people (like me) use the number of positive reviews as a deciding factor when choosing between different providers. However, I will try someone new if they write a good description or add a sample.

Fiverr might be the perfect place for you to earn your first money online. The
drawback is that you have to wait 14 days after a gig to withdraw the money to your Paypal account. However, once you get a stream of orders coming you can have a constant flow of available funds available.


Flip Domains or Sites

If you have already been online for awhile you may own some domains and/or
websites. I generally have 30-40 domains at any one time and about a dozen sites.

If I need a small amount of money sometimes I will sell one of my smaller sites that isn't making much money yet or that I don't want to work on anymore. Depending on the site I can make between $30-100 dollars quickly.

If you have a domain you want to sell, try adding a quick site to it first. If you don't know how to set up a quick mini site yourself you can get one made for $5 - $25 on Fiverr, Digitalpoint, or Warrior Forum.

If you have a larger site that is already making money, my advise is to hold onto it for long-term profit. However, selling a profitable site is one idea to make same day profits... especially if you need the money for something important.

I have sold three sites for over $5,000 each to fund my son's adoption. I am so happy I had those sites available to sell when I really needed that money.

He is home now and things are great!

Conclusion

These are some of the things that have worked for me when I needed money quickly. I hope you picked up some ideas or tips that will help you if you are ever in the same situation.

See you at the Warrior Conference in Orlando!

Great tips! Here are a few more...

Used Books & CDs. It doesn't work as well as it used to, but you can still find stores that buy used books and CDs for a few extra bucks.

Metal Junk. I also have a friend who digs up metal items around the house and takes them to a nearby metal recycling center. You'd be surprised what they buy in terms of broken appliances and all! He says the more you can separate the metal out from the rest of the item, the more money you'll get. But his best money has come from copper piping that was laying around.

Children's Clothes. And while I don't have kids, my sister says some children's consignment places will pay you on the spot for items. It's less than you'd probably get by letting them go through regular consignment. But when you need money fast...

Store Returns. One more thing I've done when necessary is gather up those items I've bought and never used, found the receipts, and taken them back. Although some stores won't return the money directly to your bank account if you bought it with a debit card--they'll give you cash instead. And of course, some will only do store credit. But still, you may be able to get a few things you actually need at the moment...

Oh, and the great thing about the PayPal Debit card I've found is that you can not only use it to withdraw cash right away, but also to pay other bills. It seems to only take 3-4 days when you're transferring the funds to your bank account.

Nice post!

One of the restrictions with a Paypal debit card is that
they limit the amount that you can withdraw from an ATM machine
each day but your daily spending limit is generally higher than
that. My solution to that problem, when I wanted more cash was
to go to my local post office and buy moneyorders, then go to
my local bank and cash them.

My bank actually checks with the post office to verify the
money orders, since I guess there is a problem with counterfeit.
So, if you make it to your bank too soon after you buy the
money orders, they won't be in the computers the banks use, and
you'll have to wait while they make a few phone calls but that
IS a way to pull several thousand dollars in cash out a Paypal
account at once rather than the several hundred dollar ATM
limit... or waiting for funds to transfer to your bank.

I also LOVE the bottled water idea for yard sales. In my
area people go to yard sales because they know that they can
get stuff for pennies on the dollar. So fishermen, guys looking
for power tools, gun collectors, etc.... even people with
booths at flea markets, make the yard sale rounds each Saturday
morning, often buying stuff to resell in their booth or store.

I watch a friend run a yard sale once, and after watching
her GIVE away brand new, unworn clothing for as little as
50 cents per item, I couldn't take it any more! To me yard
sales are INSANE :-)

Thanks for the post though.

Yard sales are insane, that is for sure. I wish I had more time to hit them up. Only part that stinks is writing the listings and packing... but you can probably find a high school kid willing to do these things for next to nothing. You spend a couple days a week grabbing the goods and they do the rest.

Does anyone know if it's possible to get a Paypal Debit Card in Australia? I had a look around the Paypal site and couldn't seem to find anything for it.

I always forget that I'm able to do this and whenever I do, I make myself an easy couple hundred dollars. As was said before in this thread, books are GOLDMINES when it comes to selling on eBay, or probably even Craigslist (I don't sell there, so I'm not sure), as you typically read them only a few times and then they just take up space.

I'll probably end up selling off a few dozen books over the next week or so, to try and raise a little more capital and tbh, just get myself some more space around the house!

There are many things that you can buy at yard sales, thrift shops, Craigslist Ads and Penny Saver that you can turn around and sell for quick profits. You just have to know what is in high demand right now and you can definitely make some good extra income. Tracy mentioned that selling used books to stores is a good idea but as she said, it's hard to find stores that buy them. Another good idea is to find books that are rare and out of print and sell them on eBay. You would be surprised what prices some of these in demand books are selling for on eBay.

Great post, Paula! The local pawn shop still owns my deer rifle and my double barrelled shotgun but I'll get 'em back someday.

Hi Paula,

Great info in your post. However, what really struck me was your story about using your IM resources to fund the adoption of your child. Congratulations! I know it was a few years ago but I commend you for following your dream. Your son is beautiful! You are an inspiration to everyone who has ever wondered if their hardwork would ever be worth it.

If you have a domain you want to sell, try adding a quick site to it first. If you don't know how to set up a quick mini site yourself you can get one made for $5 - $25 on Fiverr, Digitalpoint, or Warrior Forum.

If you have a larger site that is already making money, my advise is to hold onto it for long-term profit. However, selling a profitable site is one idea to make same day profits... especially if you need the money for something important.

I have sold three sites for over $5,000 each to fund my son's adoption. I am so happy I had those sites available to sell when I really needed that money.
Thanks for sharing.

Where do you flip domain and sites?

DigitalPoint because it's free and lots of people already know me there. I know Flippa and Warrior Forum works better for others.

See you at the Warrior Conference in Orlando!

Used Books & CDs. It doesn't work as well as it used to, but you can still find stores that buy used books and CDs for a few extra bucks.

Metal Junk. I also have a friend who digs up metal items around the house and takes them to a nearby metal recycling center. You'd be surprised what they buy in terms of broken appliances and all! He says the more you can separate the metal out from the rest of the item, the more money you'll get. But his best money has come from copper piping that was laying around.

Children's Clothes. And while I don't have kids, my sister says some children's consignment places will pay you on the spot for items. It's less than you'd probably get by letting them go through regular consignment. But when you need money fast...

Store Returns. One more thing I've done when necessary is gather up those items I've bought and never used, found the receipts, and taken them back. Although some stores won't return the money directly to your bank account if you bought it with a debit card--they'll give you cash instead. And of course, some will only do store credit. But still, you may be able to get a few things you actually need at the moment...

Oh, and the great thing about the PayPal Debit card I've found is that you can not only use it to withdraw cash right away, but also to pay other bills. It seems to only take 3-4 days when you're transferring the funds to your bank account.
Tracy, with the Paypal Debit card it is actually better to use your balance for paying bills and buying anything you'd normally use a debit card for, as you will not be assessed a cash withdrawal fee if you just use it for regular debit card purchases/payments, whether it is online or offline!

This was a very good article. Thank you.
It made me take another look at selling on
eBay. The pawn shop portion was very
touching, as I can relate to it. Good Job.

Yeah, eBay is my favorite for fast cash. I've made an Insane amount of cash from eBay in the last 12 months!

With everyone scrambling to make money with cpa, offline, amazon, and adsense....eBay is amongst the forgotten..just thrown to the back.

But, I can tell you that eBay is alive and well with making cash...when done strategically and correctly!

eBay arbitrage is my favorite method for making big cash...i was buying from eBay, only 1 type of cell phone, making some changes to it (sometimes) and reselling the same cell phone on ebay..bringing in up to $6,943 in a single month!

This method you can do and never leave your home!

Anyway, good post

Great list!! And they all work too! My husband and I have done just about everything on that list at one time or another for some much needed quick cash - well, except for dog sitting.

Hi Paula

Thanks for this list, I just came on here because I need to make some quick cash to pay for some unexpected bills and your list has give me some hope I can do this fast!

I can certainly vouch for Fiverr - I have made over $100 on there, I've done a few gigs and then have done repeat business and charged more to the same client, so it's a definite place to go if you are just starting... my tip, make sure that whatever you are saying you will do for $5, that you say it's a one off gig, if they want more of the same, then they negotiate a price with you, that's how I made over $100 in a week... and it went directly to my paypal account, not through Fiverr! So am definitely going to do this more... I had a video and photos up of my work, so that definitely gets you noticed more!!

Take care

Lise

I recommend going to Paypal right now and ordering the card here:
https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/we...ntro&nav=0.2.2
That way you will have it the next time you are in a financial crunch and need to access your earnings quickly.
Too bad that you can only get it only if you are from United States.

This is the key to creating bigger profits from Fiverr. Not only will you be able to make more money by charging higher prices for subsequent services to the same client, you also get your money right away in Paypal since you're bypassing Fiverr for these subsequent orders!

Another tip would be to only offer gigs that you can completely in 5 to at most 10 minutes, as this will ensure you can scale up your work and also make a decent amount per hour (you should be making $20+ an hour if you don't exceed 10 minutes per gig).

I've been reading a lot of mentions of Fiverr lately.

I'm glad to have finally read the description of it.

I now intend on using the site.

Taking that a step further, I had a friend who was away from home with no transportation back. He went to a junkyard and bought old electric motors. He then dismantled the motor to get the copper wire, and sold everything back to the junk yard at a nice "profit."

I really must sign up with eBay again, it's been a few years since I was on there. I stopped at the time they banned ebooks from sale on there, and I suppose most other marketers dropped eBay as well. You can always buy small antique and collectables items at local auctions and sell them on eBay, I may well do that. With local auctions you don't run out of stock to sell!

Nice post.

Good aggregation of ways. But I think Fiverr needs more highlighting. It's a great way to earn some quick cash. But the only thing that sucks is the 14-day wait.!

So you need to put together a business flyer saying you will dog sit their overflow for them. You never know, they could get overwhelmed and throw some business your way. Let the customer pay them and you get your cut. That way they don't see you as competition so much as assisting them in their business. If someone asks if you would do it for them without going through the business then you might consider throwing a little cash to the business since they are the one who got the customer in the first place.

Here's a nifty Facebook Gadget you can use to supplement your income in a short time: a question of weeks only, or just use it for fun. - you’ll make a lot of friends; that’s for sure!

Great information, especially the ebay tip as I hope to be moving soon and have a lot of "stuff" to get rid of. Guess I'll give ebay another try - it's been a few years.
