5 Ways To Turn Nothing Into Money - [Concept I'm Developing]

44 replies

If you have no money coming in, any one of these things will make you money right now.

You don't need a list.

You don't need to create a product.

You don't need to build your silo site.

You don't need to buy solo ads.

You can start with the pocket lint you have that fills the holes in your pocket and start making money immediately.

I hope you found this helpful and I truly hope it helps someone.

Regards,

Los

    Yeah,

    It's typically the simple stuff people won't or can't do, apparently.

    Getting a job is so far from what most would think to do on this forum, it's pathetic.

    What's wrong with getting a job, when you don't have nothing coming in?

    Selling stuff....

    Sell the cards, sell the vcr, get the stuff that's free, dumpster dive, do whatever it takes.

    For local clients, do the stuff you know how to do.

    SEO, Wordpress Setup, Email....etc.

    Freelance - Elance, Freelancer, odesk....etc.

    Sell other people's stuff.

    Sorry if it seems basic.

    I like to keep it simple....

    The best way to get forum traffic would be to add to conversations that are already out there. Giving valuable contributions would be the very best way to do this.

    Robert and Taken Action were very blunt above but they are being honest.

    @Rory - I'm sure if you researched...you'd find a lot of value from me.

    I just come to realize that the more I break down the basics, the more truthful I am with what works, the less people tend to appreciate it.

    Not that I mind.

    A good debate is always helpful to bring attention, however, the honest truth of all this stuff is do something...anything.

    I'm not big on the making the easy difficult.

    What I posted I probably could have extrapolated, however, I figured it was so basic that most would get it.

    Anyways, stay tuned for more and thanks for the feedback, folks.

    This is a fun game. I'm in.

    Here's another:

    1. Grow a Facebook Page.
    2. Grow a Facebook Group.
    3. Get a Copy of Gimp (free); or
    4. Get a Copy of Photoshop CS2 (free).
    5. Use legal content from PixaBay.com
    6. Make T-Shirt Designs.
    7. Setup a TeeSpring Campaign.

    I'd be all day writing the step-by-steps, but the above is 100% free to implement and run, and many of us make a significant income from the combination of FB+TeeSpring. The trick? Pretty obvious:

    - Targeted NICHE Page & Group
    - Killer Designs
    - The RIGHT Design That Sells
    - More Likes & Members = More Money.

    Take some of your profits and spend it on:

    - High-End Stock Images &/ Or Custom Work.
    - Software to Grow FB (in a legit way)
    - FB Ads (for targeted growth)
    - Paid Photoshop. I think I pay 8 quid a month, I forget.

    Simple. Have at it!

      "5 Ways To Turn Nothing Into Money"


      When you really break it down your title is a not accurate because "Nothing" is really your time, is it not? And your time is one of the most valuable assets you have. It is an equalizer because we are all blessed with the same amount. So the question becomes . . .

      How do you turn your time into money? It's really a tradeoff of one asset (time) for another (money).

    @Tom - Yup!

    @Steve - It's all in the context, however, I could deal with that title as an acceptable tradeoff.

    In this instance the nothing, meant no money.

    Yes, we do all have the same amount of time....not the same amount of money.

    Hi,

    Love it! And how DARE you note a job lol. Love it, love it. The money is in.....your mind, in your consciousness. And the channels you include here, work, all of them. You can turn nothing into money by doing stuff few others do. Example: I did quite a bit online I hated doing for quite a while to make the money that set the stage for me living in Bali, in Fiji, in Costa Rica and all over the world. I blog from paradise because I too a different path.

    I am also beyond grateful for being a security guard for 4 years before I became a digital nomad. I generate a full time income now through the lessons I learned on my jobs, as well as the lessons I've learned online. As for the other tips/channels, brilliant. I figure that struggling Warriors can take a nice little trip outside of the box with this one

    Thanks much!

    Tweeting from Bali.

    Good luck finding that easy button.

    Actually, you know what?

    You know who has that easy button?

    The guy or girl that has the list they've built up and has the ability to rocket their message over to that list by clicking....the send button.

    Oh, but I must warn you...they built that list through something most cannot muster...

    OK. Let us look deeper.

    #1 JOB. What kind? I teach the Harvey Brody concept of SPIDOG, Solve Problems In Direction of your Goal.

    Best skill to acquire for a lifetime of use might be selling. Second best might be Educational, that is, learning what the "inside" dope is on a business. Example, you want to open a pizza shop, get a job working in one part time. Want to invest in Subway, take a job at the entry level and work in one.

    Re: Selling. Direct face to face and Remote selling via phone are two types of jobs you'll find everyday on Monster and other job boards including your local craigslist.

    Face to face with cell phones, every mall in America has these kiosks, or any KIOSK in the mall might have part time opportunities. I like food and have had JOBS with several food type shops, like Hickory Farms who sells from Thanksgiving through New Year in most malls. I've also been a product demo person in supermarkets and a "food" sampler with commissions on sales.

    Selling...teaches you that people are preoccupied and how to get their attention, build interest, have them want and then buy...very useful skill for an Internet Marketer to have.

    Doing JOBS, as noted, for your future. I did floor care for high schools, sort of a custodial specialty, as an Independent contractor, it saved time and money for the schools and freed up their custodial staff to spend more time doing other things. Did two schools a night. The reason was I considered starting my own floor care specialty service.

    So, look for a job, entry level, to learn and get paid for learning.

    SELL OFF STUFF. Start with your TV. Americans especially have stuff. Sell it off for some fast money. Don't have stuff? Check your local craigslist for arbitrage opportunities, buy on craigslist, sell on craigslist, pocket the difference. What to sell?
    Parade of Life stuff. Baby to toddler, to kid, to tween to teen to young adult to adult to middle age to old age and there you go, the parade from cradle to casket.

    Drapes are easy to find, easy to sell, fit in the back of smallest cars.

    FREELANCE. I use a lot of freelancers, and I've been one. If you don't have any "marketing wanted" skills, freelance your body, if capable, to people who aren't able to wash their windows, clean their garages, wash their decks and houses...could lead to a part time or full time ABSENTEE owned cash cow business.

    SELL FOR OTHERS. Many IMers are affiliates, may be the fastest way to an IM profit there is. But off line has all kinds of Independent Contractors selling for others, from selling ads on a 9 x 12 postcard, to selling TV spots, pool companies, all kinds of these out there.

    LOCAL CLIENTS... HECK, the WF has a separate subforum where there is an ongoing discussion about off line and dealing with LOCAL clients, offering them SMS, SEO, advertising ops, web building, mobile directories, etc., and etc. Local people like to work with local people.

    So, the infographic in the OP, does show value for those seeking and wanting a little brain stimulation.

    And I would add this:

    There are no RULES...SPEED TO your goals, and take success by others with a grain of salt, just because they took five years, doesn't mean you have to....START at their AH-HA moment, and save yourself years of wheel spinning and being the hamster on the wheel.

    HOW does one expedite their success?

    They know what they want, they have a goal, a plan and they SPIDOG their way to the results they want.

    Everything needs detail, however, what I've mentioned and what others have so graciously elaborated on are all grid foundation type things.

    What that means is I meant to show you how simple the aha moment could be, and how it can easily be expanded upon.

    There's in an infographic sequence posted on FB that spells it out a little better.

      I got one for you guys...

      5 Ways to Get To your Job (Something I just came up with)

      1. Drive your car
      2. Walk to work or ride bike
      3. Ask family or friend for a ride
      4. Take the train or bus
      5. Call a taxi

      Hope that helped you guys...

      How To REALLY Turn Nothing into Money

      Affiliate Marketing

      1. Sign up for an affiliate program promoting something you either use or have faith in...

      2. Get the affiliate link and cloak it.

      3. Use video or social media to promote the product.

      then once you make some profit do these 5 things

      1. Create a blog in the niche that you have passion for and like...

      2. Build a Capture page and offer something of value that helps to people in exchange for their email to build a list. Lead GEN

      3. Blog daily and provide value by solving people's problems in that niche. If you have passion for niche you will know their problems.

      4. Send people who join your list to your blog that gives them value daily.

      5. Once you start getting traction and people trusting you then promote products and services that will help them out with their problems show them the solution.

      $

      Oh yeah on your infographic

      1. Get a Job - Everyone knows how to get a job this is engraved in us since we were born actually 99% of the population already knows this...

      2. Sell for others - Do you mean Affiliate Marketing?

      3. Local Clients - Does this involve offline marketing providing a service? Don't you have to pay or have some sort of skill or tool to do this? Most times takes money

      4. Freelance - This requires a skill right? Don't people who have skills that people are looking for know they can sell those skills? Fiverr anyone?

      5. Sell Stuff???
      This is not making money because didn't you have to buy the stuff? If it were stolen it would be profit, but you buy at retail, and stores buy at wholesale, so you pay $300 for a tv 6 months ago and sell it for $100 isn't that losing $200?

    I'd add-

    Step 1- Find a big rock.
    Step 2- Throw rock at window.
    Step 3- Grab what's inside window (leave rock).
    Step 4- Run like mad.

    That's the only way you can turn nothing into money; it takes knowledge and skill to actually profit online....even if you're selling stuff.

    the title is deceptive for a start

    the mindmap is pretty pointless too..

    you put "get a job" on there...most people in here either didnt want a job or are trying to ditch there current job there in

    the only thing i could think of is you just wanted to generate some response/reaction

          Kids back to school.

          Traditionally Summer in USA is vacation time, a SLOW down for many direct and remote direct marketing companies.

          As Summer here ends, we'll see more activity on all the forums, at least more participation from N. America residents.

          It is THE time to think of the Thanksgiving (American) to Christmas to New Years holiday season. Many marketers are prepping and perfecting their sales messages.

          ONLINE and Internet Marketing pick up. You can count on several NEW Guru Product Launches of the 2 to 5,000 dollar variety with a contest for members of their groups, networks and syndicates.

          As an Internet Marketer, it doesn't hurt to review some old threads, to mine for the occasional nugget of gold.

          There are 133 days left (if in USA) to 2016, only 125 shopping days to Christmas.

          So, how to make money will become and even MORE popular question here at WF. AND, we'll see some silly answers, some sarcasm, and even a few bits of solid advice.

          Want to make a 100,000 with the rest of 2015? Still time to join a group (guru) spend 90 days preselling their launch, build your list and slam and spam when the product gets launched...you could make 100 sales X $ 1,000.00 in only 24 hours, and maybe even win a new car doing it.

          Or you could get a part time job and use the extra moolah to pay for your holidays and start 2016 with a few bux in your pocket to invest in the next guru launch, usually around Valentines Day.

          OK then, let's all go find a few 3 or 4 year old threads to bump, and have a good time.

    There is no way to turn nothing into money. All of these take time.

    If your time is not valuable, then congrats. You turned nothing into money.

    But if your time means something like mine does, then nothing never equals money. Time=money. But time is money, so in reality money=money.

    Your post title is contradictive.

      I can (and do) post something for sale on Craigslist in the morning, and have cash by noon.

      OF course, as it has already been established, the OP wasn't literal about nothing, he corrected himself by adding "No Money". Labor and time can always be exchanged for something of value.

      In USA, it is possible to find a day job, which could be all one needs to get started.

        Nothing like getting down to the raw mindset of what makes money. I guess this mind-map would be useful for anyone that has had their mind overloaded with all the money making methods available on the WF.

      This was not a joint venture or even a method, so you can't scale it up per-say.. I think maybe the post was so simple that it went over your head.

      The op gave a mind-map of money making simplicity, as it is easy to over complicate the whole process of earning money.

      time is more than money, its a shitty statement: time == money, boss!

      I can't even think trading my time for money

      I am ready to spend thousands of hours (i.e. a few years) crafting a software product without even getting paid on the course of development because I know the hidden potential of making huge money on auto-pilot in the future, but I cannot withstand whining of any clients. I do not think they got any standards, they will be wasting my time. Most of them do not actually know what they are looking for. They regard freelancers as angels when it comes to work, and a beggar in the international scenario when it comes to paying money. Great things are built in-house firstly by founders and then by hired employees, right? The same goes for the articles, videos, podcasts and others. There are of course some exceptions but I do not expect anything from online freelancers. They take more assignments than they are capable of doing all the time, creating extra pressure on themselves, resulting in poor products. Clients do not even know whether its poor or high quality until they run into losses. Tiny bits of money, sure, can be made by freelancing or by assigning tasks to freelancers but not huge which some serious guys here are looking for.

      Sorry if I burst your bubble, who sincerely freelance for others. I have talked from a businessman's perspective.
