I need money ASAP! Ideas?

33 replies
I'm on a 2 1/2 week leave of absence from work and am trying to find ways to make $75-100/day so I don't have to go back. (I work at an Amazon warehouse and am just so burned out on the physical work!) I've tried a couple of different courses these past couple of days that I have bought and am just so frustrated that once in the course I need to buy more things to make it actually work. Or it takes a while to see any results. I don't have the money or time for all of that. I am hoping to find 3 or 4 different things I can do that maybe aren't just affiliate marketing. I like doing other things too but just need some guidance. I need super simple explanations of how to do things. I also have courses on selling digital products on Etsy (I do have a store already) but they are so technical and my head hurts trying to understand things. Please help!!!

    Sell stuff on eBay. Been doing it for nearly 15 years. List 3-7 items per day and you can make that much per day. Start out by selling unwanted items you have sitting around the house. Then go and ask friends if you can sell stuff for them. Then go and visit flea markets, auctions, yard sales and thrift stores to find inventory. It's probably the fastest and easiest way to make money online that I can think of.

      Can't disagree with this.

      If you're used to working in a Amazon warehouse, this transition to a home business operation on Ebay will be a piece of cake for you.

    I agree and it's the easiest to learn and master in my opinion. The other fastest way is to offer a services - such as writing - but with the service you need some knowledge of what to do and how to do it.


    There is nothing that is little time and $0 cost that is going to get regular income daily in a couple weeks. What you earn online is based on what you DO - not on what you need.

    You can join sites such as Freelancer and look for things you have a skill in.


    Fiverr.com can also be good - but it can take time to establish yourself.


    You can put out leaflets for Fiverr and get paid for this.


    Some customers will ask you to display an add and take a photo of yourself advertising something, so there are lots of ways to make money from Fiverr.


    Hope this helps.

    In the online world and just life in general I have found that making decisions out of desperation is a recipe for disaster. Slow down and commit to one thing and learn about it, there have already been some good suggestions listed by the other posters.

    You can start by selling your used/unwanted items on Amazon, Ebay, Craigslist, Mercari, Letgo, and OfferUp. When you run out of stuff you have to invest in inventory by going to clearance sections at Walmart and Bed Bath and Beyond. You could also go to garage sales and flea markets. Another way to make money is to do micro jobs on Free Lancer and Fiverr.

    Just don't expect to start making $100 daily right away. $100 a day is not easy and it takes a lot of work to reach such stage. Fellow Warriors gave very good advices, so what you should do now is implement what you warriors said and please please DO NOT EXPECT to make hundreds right away, because if you won't teach it as you expected it could lead you to give up and it's the worst you can do. Never give up, everything is possible, if you fail it's a good sign, more you fail, sooner you will reach success.

    Good Luck!

    Believe me, courses are not something to spend money on to do or earn money. There are lots of useful and free materials on the Internet that will help you open a small business or do a business that is capable of making a profit. Start with what you can do and what happens the most. The main thing is that it should be interesting to do, otherwise it will soon cease to be interesting to you and therefore you will spend less time and attention on your work. And you need to understand that very quickly to do something will not work. Everything needs some time.

    1) Do you already have a store? Fine! In this case, try to develop it and look for the first target audience, attract the first customers. Tell your friends about your store, and let them tell you about it. Pay attention to your store's SEO and, in addition to it, create a small blog in which you share useful articles about your products and attract traffic from search engines to it. Create a social network page, for example, on Facebook and share your products there, attract other users.

    2) You can earn on different freelance exchanges, as well as try to take orders directly from customers by searching them on different sites, specialized forums, social networks and other resources. You can do completely different things, ranging from handicrafts, continuing with programming and ending with the provision of any services. Suppose you can test some software or applications and look for bugs. This is a fairly simple task. As well as try yourself in customer support of any product. I know that many freelancers earn good money for advice on creating and maintaining Wordpress websites.

    3) You can try to make money on various small services that offer affiliate programs with pay per click or sale. For example, various hosting companies, hosting, site designers. For example, I'm doing just that kind of earnings, providing clients with site creation services, and in addition I offer them hosting or site builder for an affiliate program. This is a good extra income for me. More recently, for me, it turned out to be an excellent solution in terms of additional earnings, the creation of online calculators for calculating the cost of services and goods that I make on the builder of uCalc calculators. Search Google, you can find them. Making calculators for customers, you can easily earn money, as well as use an affiliate program.

    4) As already stated here, sell unwanted items on eBay. This should help attract some of the money from things.

    Just find in yourself what you really want to do. Good luck!

    Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to respond! I truly appreciate all the input! I may have a part-time VA position from home (just working out the hours) which will help me get started. I do understand that I need to just slow down and focus on 1 course at a time and mastering that one. I tend to jump on the bandwagon for each new one and never finish the other one so I need to be disciplined and stop that! Again, thank you and good luck to all of us!

    You can consider using freelancing sites like Upwork. About the $75 a day that you are looking for it should depend on the task you will take and the skills that you have. Best of luck.

    I wouldn't waste money on online courses.

    is there anyway you can use your knowledge gained from the amazon warehouse?

    To set expectations, it will take time to make money online. Anything get rich quick is likely a scam. If you're willing to put in the work and time you can find success.

    What's your background?

    There is nothing wrong with keeping your job as a side gig until you start making money, having a cash flow will lessen any stress, you can do most things for a while if you can see a brighter future ahead, so number one keep working hard, and know its to a better future.

    I don't have the money or time for all of that.
    ? you are going to need some money to keep going / to live and or to invest, see above, and your going to need a lot of time, you are going to need to pump in some hours and hard work, nothing comes for free or without some sweat equity. You need to find some money by doing some work for now and you need to double down on some work to find the time you will need.

    I am hoping to find 3 or 4 different things I can do that maybe aren't just affiliate marketing.
    focus on getting one thing right, it's ok maybe to start with a few ideas but get that down to one asap, you will need to place your focus on one direction to get it rolling.

    I like doing other things too but just need some guidance. I need super simple explanations of how to do things. I also have courses on selling digital products on Etsy (I do have a store already) but they are so technical and my head hurts trying to understand things. Please help!!!
    Like others have said flip things online, fleabay, strumtree etc, these things are all easy per say and you can start with what you have and there are links here that have great detail and guidlines, and having done that and been doing it for years and now going out of the game, I am just using facebook marketplace and have dumped everything else, it is very quick and easy compared to any other option I have used over the years and I am pushing out stuff daily, and if I was staying in the game would probably just switch to this for what I do and perfect it. And in saying easy it does require organisation and skill and you can learn these as you go.

    Your desperation will kill any chances of making any money.

    Go back to work. Build a blog on a rock solid foundation. Build something lasting and meaningful and helpful. Find the freedom you seek over years, versus crashing and burning over days, weeks and months, until your disgust makes you quit.

    I share because like many Warriors, we have see this scenario thousands of times. The internet cannot be an ATM. Offline jobs act like ATMs; put in hours, for each hour, make an hourly rate. Or earn through a salaried job. The internet is nothing like that.

    Will Amazon let you work part time? That way, you could reduce your stress, but still bring in some money while you explore working online. (Or, maybe just find another job?)

    If you have a skill, you could sell it as a service online. (For example, I provide copywriting services online -- but it took MANY years to acquire a high level of skill.) Furthermore, for many services, there is often a lot of competition.

    However, if you don't have a marketable skill -- or the time to learn one -- eBay could be an option. You can start selling there TODAY.

    BUT... just be aware that finding products to sell will take work (after you clear out your garage). So think about what you will sell and PLAN AHEAD.

    You can Also try arbitrage, Sell in classified platforms like craiglist for example and buy in a cheaper place... A good example: Logos

    You can buy in Fiverr of Upwork and sell it 2x - 5x the buying price, i did it awhile back and my biggest logo that i have sold was for $100 and cost me around $20 or so.

    Its a fast way and with a very low learning curve.

    Nothing you try will likely happen quickly.

    Go back to work until you've built a stable income and then quit or get a different job.

    Flip stuff on Ebay. Alot of people will actually give you stuff for free if you go and pick it up from them. Then list & sell it. Then you can advance to buying stuff and flipping it for profit

    One of the things that will sell quickly on Ebay is books. You may have some old books around that you're done with that alot of folks would pay cash for to get there hands on. Text books, school books, back issues of magazines, unusual or rare books, Go to Ebay, get a sellers acount to get started. It.s pretty easy to set up, won't take much time.



    You can do a Google search for "selling books on EBay" to get a lot of really good tips that will get you going. This method of making an income online is a great place to start.



    Depending on what kind of books you can lay your hands on you could make out pretty well. Just something to think about.

    Recommendations:

    1. Get a another job. Yes it sucks, but you need stability.

    2. A great Warrior Path that you could follow: https://www.warriorforum.com/warrior...days-ebay.html

    3. What to do if you're desperate: https://www.warriorforum.com/main-in...ml#post1365663


    Try not to get overwhelmed. The secret to success is to pick one thing and stick with it so you can learn it. Newbies here hop from one lilypad to the next every couple of weeks and consequently develop nothing.

    Beware of Shiny Object Syndrome. There are no saviors. No one is coming to save you...no white knights...YOU are the cause of success or failure in your life.

    Read though...pick one thing that sounds like something you could do...and stick with it until it works.

    There are no quick riches. Could you get lucky? Yes. But more likely it'll be persistence that pays off.

    Whatever business you are in, everyone needs two things: Traffic and Conversion.

    You need eyeballs from people coming from somewhere...going to an offer, where some will convert into buyers. Think in terms of that, instead of the shiny object. It isn't going to be some whiz-bang thing that you make money with: it'll be bringing traffic to a conversion tool.

    What I just said is, sadly, beyond the understanding level of most of the people on this forum.
