Fast Cash Needed for Emergency,

63 replies
Is it possible to make $3K in 3 weeks without much experience but a lot of knowledge?

I just injured my wrist which has put me out of work ( painting houses ) and I need to get to Norway in 3 weeks. Not working has put me $3K behind budget which makes the trip unfeasible. However this is unacceptable as my daughter needs me there so I am highly motivated to do what it takes to make that $3k.

I have $700 to invest, and as many hours as there are in a waking day.

Any effective and genuine advice will be implemented and appreciated.

    Tell us what knowledge and experience you have in all areas. Then maybe we can offer suggestions. Do you have online skills? I see you have only written 2 posts in the 4 years you have been a member so nobody has gotten to know you.

    Assuming you use Facebook, why not simply go there and post the same question but in more detail. You never know who may be able to help you or who may have further advice.

      HI Laurence

      true, I haven't exactly been active here. Fair call to point that out.
      I'm a musician, I've been studying online marketing for a few years in my spare time but have seen so many shonky deals and systems that I've been hesitant to try any of them. ..Except for one that I wasted $500 on only to learn it was about writing an ebook and thereby becoming an 'expert' on the topic..!!

      So, I'm aware that real business models take time to nurture and grow with experience and credibility etc, and I'm aware of the nature of my request.

      Having said that I am still willing to try something to get results. Anyhow, here's to getting to know each other in the future.

        Why not ask questions about how to best tie in being a musician to internet marketing? Like years ago my friend?

        I really hope you find a solution to your challenge but never too late to build your empire.

    Why don't you just explain to your daughter that you can't make it?

    Have you looked into loans?

    Can you borrow money from a family member?

    This is the wrong forum for quick money.

      Yup. Even in the good ol' Adsense days of 2004-2010, it took beginners many months just to earn $100 a month, and Adsense was considered "easy" money back in the days.

        I suggest you find a way to sell some websites in your local area and hire some Fiverr Wordpress installer to get the job done for you. If you get two websites sold a week you can get close to that number...........at least I would try that if you really need that money fast. I always do that in my country and it works really well, the only difference is that I build the sites myself. Today you can offer many options with a website sale. Facebook management, Newsletter and Leads management, Content Management for your clients, etc.........think about it. Good luck budy........

          Any advice on how to get clients? I hear it's a very crowded market place with lots of competition.. How does one break into it..

    You probably would have better luck at Las Vegas. There's not much you can do online, in such a short period of time to earn 3000, especially without much experiences.

    No one is going to be able to help you turn that 700 into 3000 that quick. Your best option is to offer your services to others and work as much as possible online.

    You are probably best off getting local work that doesn't require you to use your wrist.

    In the back of your computer there is a secret slot. Put your $700 in there and hit enter. The 3K should start spitting out directly.

    If it doesn't work, get a grip on reality.

    I used to own a Rolex I called "Emergency Cash"

    (Do not do a search on Rolex keeping accurate time..that is another story. )

    There are ways to do it but they all include some time consuming set up already in place.

    It's hard to tap into these people because they have no intentions of publicly sharing a damn thing.

    What has changed since you posted about IM here 3 years ago?

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...l#/post7801479

    Don't mean to be rude - just realistic. If you did nothing to generate income online in three years - how can you expect it to happen in three weeks?

    You will get a lot of high sounding advice - and probably PM's offering to take the money you have. Three weeks is not long enough to START and go to $3k - which is $52k a year.

    Keep the money you have now - sell everything you own - do any odd jobs you can do with an injured wrist - ask for donations or loans from friends and family. If you keep your $700 - you only need $2300.

      Fair question and no offense taken.
      I tried a couple of things, lost money on products that were devoid of real substance and decided to just watch the scene for a while and learn what I could without losing money again.
      I became very hesitant, confused by the amount of different info and advice and basically put it off for a rainy day.
      I know if I had just started something small I would have a wealth of experience by now and maybe even some income.
      However I'm willing to start now..

      On Fiverr, you have to build a reptuation to get a good number of orders, which takes time especially with the vast amount of competition. Also, you can only withdraw funds 14 days after an order is marked as complete.. so how could the OP do that in 3 weeks.

        Oh Zodiax my friend....the WSO section used to do that all the time..I personally did it on my first try on just a $10 eBook.

        But these days..you better have a well oiled prelaunch machine in place and early bird list foaming at the mouth with committed affiliates lined up on day one.

        I am sure a high ticket launch (if you can get on their affiliates team, they are very picky) could also exceed those amounts.

    It is always possible. Think about selling stuff you own but don't want anymore. Place an free ad in the online classifieds in your local area for free and sell stuff. Depending on how big the items you are selling, making $3000 may not be a problem.

    If you go to fiveer or another freelancing website you could definitely do some jobs and make good money. On fiverr you can look up people who have submitted what they are looking for because these people are searching for anyone they want them to come to them. Submit a ticket selling your skills and do the job. Unfortunately in 3 weeks you will have to work your but off but in could work.

    Yes, it could be done by a very select few . . . but from the desperation I sense in your post, I think it is highly unlikely that you can do it.

    To average $1K/week you've got to earn an average of $142.86 a day, every day, 21 times without missing. Have you done that each day for the past 3 days since your post?

    It takes time to set up offers, drive traffic, make sales, and get paid. Depending upon your business model, you may not see income for 60 days waiting for transactions to clear and payments to be disbursed.

    Planning is important and everyone needs extra cash on hand for emergencies.

          Hi David

          I have had to painfully accept that I won't make enough money for this trip, and to stop trying to make 'fast cash'.

          Instead I've opted for creating an income that will serve me better in the long run and which takes some nurturing to develop but is sustainable.

          I wish I had started earlier but at least my future self will thank me for starting now.

          I've started some coaching with an internet marketer which is slow so far but it's always the way when overcoming the initial friction with movement.

          I read your profile and you clearly have a lot of experience in this business. There's nothing to report on yet with my progress as I'm still setting things up and waiting for my coach to get back to me so I can take the next steps, but I have confidence that it will work.

            I just want to make a couple points. Hopefully, they are helpful but maybe not.

            You mention you have a coach now. I hope you didn't respond to a PM or direct offer to coach you for pay. Mind if I ask, did you?

            The reason is that when members tell their stories and especially when they say they have $X, they are normally approached with ideas on transferring said money to someone else.

            That isn't the coaching people need and in some cases, it turns out to be a scam.

            Second, you mention that things are slow and you are waiting for your coach to respond. How long has it been? Again, I could be wrong but that may be a sign of trouble.

            I'm not trying to be negative but realistic. Hopefully, you haven't fallen into a trap.

              Hi, thanks for your points, I've been in constant communication with said coach and following detailed instructions on selected methods to create an income stream. The waiting time was between steps as I finished them quickly but we are in different timezones and he is travelling through internet poor zones of the Philipines.. but it is working out fine.

              I was worried when I had to wait until the end of the day but he came through in the end. No, it's not ideal but I am paying him very little and he is over delivering on his end.

              There have been a few other people just asking for money to invest in things which I haven't taken up. But yes, I did respond to a direct pm offering assistance which I took up after looking into the guy and reading feedback from his work.

              Again, thanks for the advice.. I appreciate the fact that you took the time to write.

      The question is a lot of knowledge about what?

      Any advice on how to get clients? I hear it's a very crowded market place with lots of competition.. How does one break into it..
      Here you'd be going down the wrong path IMO if you were looking to do this and raise that money quickly.

      You don't have time to build websites. You'd be better off trying to just SELL the websites. Get outsourcers to do the work. There is even a WSO that is for local consultants and they do ALL the work and are like having an immediate team in place.

      If you can just sell enough sites, you could possibly do this. It's going to depend completely on your selling skills.

      My only other suggestion would be quickly determining a low cost keyword on a hot topic and linking in with an instant pay affiliate program or selling an already canned product.

    To raise that kind of money in the time frame you mentioned is going to be difficult. However, here are a couple of suggestions below that you could try and that should hopefully bring in some cash for you faster.

    METHOD 1) Try doing a Car Boot sale with as many unwanted items as you can find. You should almost certainly make some ready cash that way. If you don't have enough items then ask your family/friends if they have anything they wish to get rid of.

    METHOD 2) Go to Craigslist or any other popular classified ad sites. Search through the more expensive or quality in demand hot items. Make an offer below the asking price. If they accept, then arrange to pick it up. Then simply re-list again on Craigslist or similar and ask for more than you paid for it originally. Be sure not to ask too much for it though you want a quick sale after all.
    Then just repeat the process again and again, until you have made some nice profits. This is known as simple arbitrage and - it works! Ok you might not get all the money you need for your 'emergency' but it is a proven method and I still use it myself sometimes if I need some fast cash.
    Hope this helps

      This can definitely work. I would add to this that you can basically buy low and sell high(the old buy and sell method) but as this was said above I would add that you can also incorporate local classified ads in newspapers and of course online like craigslist and ebay but now there are some APPS that can help with this method. I have the iPhone so these apps are on the app store(probably on android also but not sure). The most popular of these apps are:

      Wallapop
      LetGo
      OfferUp

      I've done this type of business before there was an internet through classifieds and made a few grand over a few months before I got into something else so this was 20 years ago. But you need to sell fast selling items and in my opinion the quickest items to unload or sell is furniture such as couches, chairs, tables, desks, dining room sets and cabinets to list the basics.

      Always try to get the best price(lowest of course) you can so do some haggling and then relist it for more than you paid and the difference is your profit. This should still work OK as furniture type items are always in demand by new homeowners or apartment renters. So maybe if this is a good fit for you give it a try with just one item and then you'll get confidence and then you can scale it up from there.

    Here's how you can start making money tomorrow with a $0 investment:

    Hold onto your money.

    You need to start freelancing/consulting.

    $0 of overhead and you can start making money today.

    You already have $700 so now you only need $2,300 over the next 21 days.

    That's about $110 you need to make every day.

    It's a stretch starting from scratch but not impossible.

    Here's what you do:

    You have a lot of knowledge and time so you need to start trading that time and expertise for money.

    Go to Upwork.com and sign up for a freelancer account. Use that marketplace to find clients who need services completed. Browse the marketplace for any particular skills you have and create a profile around offering that skill. If you're good with web design, excel, accounting, etc. you can find someone who will pay for your expertise.

    The easiest thing you can get started with is freelance writing. You can start writing articles and get paid quickly. If you have no experience you'll probably have to start with some low-paying gigs but that's no problem. This is a short-term solution anyway. You can find gigs that pay $1 for every 100 words. Most clients will want 500-word articles so that's $5 per article. Not a fortune but it's a start.

    Next, start looking for gigs that pay more than $1/100 words. You can find articles that pay $2, $3+ per 100 words. You can start writing those articles or create a client account and start sub-contracting that work out to other writers. Now you're writing articles and you have your own contract writing for you.

    Keep continuing to write, get gigs, and outsource everything you can. Honestly, great content is always needed online. You can make $200 - $400+ per 1,000 word article depending on the niche, e.g. writing finance articles will naturally pay more than writing for a non-profit. However, you'll most likely need to show samples of your work, build relationships in your niche, etc. before you start making that much money per article. Time isn't on your side so you'll need to focus on churning out as many articles as possible.

    Good luck and let me know if you need any help with the Upwork process!

    Best
