There Is Such A Thing As Free Money.

by 100 comments
It's not a competition or a challenge - just me looking to brighten up a few fellow warriors day.

If you think $20 would help your online business, post to this thread saying how you would use it.

I'll send the posters of of my favourite 5 posts $20 each.

This is today.... It's 7:45 am gmt as I type this and I'll send the money before my day is out.

All you need is a paypal account to receive it.

This is not a joke and not a scam - there is no sign up required or anything like that.

So - just tell me why you think $20 would help.

    Honestly, I would use it to finish the outsourcing needed to finish my mother's first attempt at an online website.

    She was laid off and really wanted my help on getting started when I told her you could make some extra cash online to help make ends meet.

    I figured what better way to show her than to help her build her first content site and learn how to monetize it as it builds traffic.

    We've got a website niche picked out, now we just need to fill it with some content and get some backlinks and she'd be on her way.

    So i'd use it at fiver to get the backlinks going while she's busy working on content.

    There's nothing quite like outsourcing!

    Thanks for your consideration!

      Do you really recommend using Fiverr? I've looked into it myself, but have yet to bring myself to use the service.

      What's your experience been?

    Wow, that's an extremely generous contest Andy.
    For now, let me tell you how I could utilize those 20$.

    1) Most importantly - 1 month of hosting. I don't have much money, and I'm struggling to earn online. That would be 50% of the prize, and would help me buy more time to develop my site and increase visitors, hopefully resulting in more sales.

    2) With the additional 10$, I believe I would buy 2 Fiverr gigs, which would hopefully fit well into my plan. If I find the right people, I'm positive I could gain much from those 2 gigs. Perhaps good articles, or backlinkins to relevant sites.

    If I won't find what I'm looking for, I'd probably use the money for another month's hosting.

    So, nothing too glamorous, however on my tight budget, I can't afford anything too shiny. I have a full time job now, which barely covers the bills (some months it doesn't), and these extra 20$ would go a long way for me. I only can squeeze in about 6-7 hours a week to work on my online endeavours, which makes it even harder for me to expand and increase my earning potential.

    Thanks again for the opportunity Andy, I am eager to see the results.

    What I would do is write a couple of gigs on fiver (article writing,backlinking etc2), and then I will go to freelance.com (or other similar sites, even WF) to search for services related to my gig. Find one that is lesser than $5, and let the $20 be the starting money for it. Then rinse and repeat, till you have enough to start something bigger. Shouldn't take too much time.

    OK - well there weren't enough people interested to need to pick - everyone who posted before this post gets $20.

    Just PM me your paypal email and I'll send you some dollars.

    wrongnumber - please don't bother creating a domain/site about me. I appreciate the gesture but it's not really my style, but I'm happy to give you $20 just for your enthusiasm and for taking the action many others didn't feel was worth $20.

    I don't know if this is still going, but since the day is not over, I will post anyways.

    With $20 I would pay for my first month of hosting and buy a domain name for my niche. I have been working away hard writing an e-book to help work at home moms. (Not going into the specific niche.) I would love a little boost on getting my online career started!

      I'm not sure if the contest is going on, but that's okay.

      I would use the $20 to treat my kids to the culinary delights known as "Happy Meals."

    $20 is EU13.33333


    A bag of friskies for our cats is EU3.18 We have 8 cats which are always hungry
    So the $20 would make 4 bags of food for the cats

    I don't need the $20 and it's too late anyway, but if nothing else this proves that we all need to pay more attention to this sub-forum. I totally forgot about it until Andy reminded us all in the main forum.

    Thanks for the reminder (albeit inadvertently), Andy! Congrats to the lucky 5.

    I'd use the $20 for domain name and the rest for snacks and energy drinks. I woiuld be needing them as I build my site all byu myself. BTW, I have a reseller domain account so I've got it covered.

      Thanks Andy for being so generous and for making some people very happy. I just read this post today so I am a few days late. Still I think it is such a nice gesture.

      The $20 would have been nice but what would better is you telling us what you are doing to make enough money online to give some away? I am interested to know and how long have you been working online?

      Thanks for answering....

    What a generous offer you have...

    Congrats to those who win.

    I probably missed the contest this time, but still I want to say "thanks" as this is one of the proof that there are real people with real steady income on the IM world.

    I just did a simple background check and please tell me if I'm wrong, but since your copy-writing skills are superb, I'm betting on you do copy-writing.

    Regards,
    William

    This part of the forum is something. Just lovely! The contest is over.

    But for fun $20 would go to my savings account.

    I am bummed I just saw this, but congrats to the winners anyhow.

    IF I had $20, I would pay for a month of hosting for an affiliate site I've been planning for a while. I have been spending so much time and energy working on other people's projects, (which, don't get me wrong, is rewarding too), that I want to finally work on something that's all mine.

    From these 20$ I'll buy a domain related to natural ways to improve vision. Then I'll buy a hosting account. Once done, I'll write few articles, build a website and market my own product on it. In addition to this, will use adsense too.
    Then, I'll ping my website, build few backlinks. Then, I'll market my website/product on my facebook, twitter, myspace, linkedin accounts.
    Once done, I'll wait for the traffic to come in and will see how the traffic converts. In the meanwhile, I'll submit my site to directories, will write articles on my niche, post it on hubpages, squidoo, blogger with my website's link on the same. Then I'll submit few articles to other article directories, then will submit my website to google buzz, RSS feed etc. Then, I'll continue the process, till I get some good results.

    Thanks,
    Nitin
