Are you letting advertising run on that video? Like adsense where you get paid when a viewer clicks on any of the ads that appear on your video?

i would suggest selling stuff on ebay- especially stuff that you no longer need. as long as you price it well and it is in demand then you should sell it without any problems. Another alternative is Amazon or a local classified ads website for your local area

Good luck to everyone

Wow! its hard to find something to say that someone has not already said. There are many things said here that I would echo so I won't bore you with repeating them. Everybody was new to making money online or otherwise at some point!

Unfortunately some people are quick to forget that which results in others becoming afraid to ask questions for fear of being ridiculed. Hitting rock bottom could happen to any of us (God willing it won't). The biggest thing for me that you can do if you hit that wall is to ASK FOR HELP! Don't care if you feel stupid or if you feel you shouldn't, when it comes to survival, your job is to survive. There are some fabulous warriors on here who will give you what you need. So please ask!

Is there a way to overlay an ad onto the video? The ad could be from a business that is related to the topic of the movie clip. As someone mentioned you could have a link to an affiliate product around the clip's subject. With this much interest in the clip, there has to be a way to monetize it!

Good luck.

The businesses in my area looks like they have been already spammed to death..
I want to offer them solutions and value, but it's really really hard to make them understand that.

I also have a video on YouTube that gets 350k views per week, but I never did anything with that.
I don't know if that could help me with my situation.

Most folks on the WF are doing at least 1-2 tasks that they'd love to outsource. If you can take some of those tasks off our plates, you're instantly making money. Build your reputation on the WF for this service and guess what? Your customer acquisition costs go down considerably.

Those are great skills to have! Have you tried Freelancer.com, Odesk.com, Warriors for Hire, etc. to get some clients?

Also, instead of cold calling, what about asking people that you know and businesses that you frequent (institutions/stores/groups in your neighborhood)? They're less likely to send you to where they sent all the spammers.

Are you a newbie who would love to learn how to start making money online? Boy, do I have a free report for you!

Re: What to do if you're desperate
Share on:

So you’re broke and you need some quick cash A.S.A.P.

What do you do?

You probably go to Google and search for “how to make money online” and you will find a whole bunch of methods that work, but the problem is that the methods are time consuming and/or they require you to go through a long learning curve.

Now, if you’re desperate, you don’t have time for time consuming methods and long learning curves.

You need money now!

So, I’m going to show you a way you can use the power of the internet to find quick and easy to do tasks that people are willing to pay you for.

Step 1: Go to Craigslist.org and find your State and city.

Step 2: Once you click on your city you will be presented with different categories to choose from such as, community, housing, jobs, services, gigs, and etc. Find the category that says Gigs and choose one of the following subcategories; crew, event, labor, talent, computer, creative, domestic, or writing. If you don’t want to choose a subcategory you can just click on gigs and you will be presented with all the gigs included in all the subcategories.

Step 3: Choose from a variety of gigs and get in touch with the ad poster by replying to the ad.

You will find gigs such as, lawn mowing, musical gigs, modeling, handyman work, concession stand work, computer software installation, and moving heavy objects.

You can find simple gigs that you can take care of in an hour or so and people are willing to pay you for your assistance.

You can choose one gig and run with it or you can choose multiple gigs and make a couple hundred bucks in a short period of time.

There is no reason why you can’t make some fast cash when you have resources such as Craigslist to take advantage of.

There is also another website called Taskrabbit.com where you can find simple tasks that people are willing to pay you to complete. You can also use the website to outsource your own tasks if you ever find yourself with too much to do in a short period of time.

I know there are a lot of people who aren’t of aware of websites like the ones I just shared with you, which is why I felt the need to share this information with you anyone else who stumbles across this article.

Now, you can make cash on the demand without searching endlessly for a job or having to do anything shameful or unethical.

Selling re-hashed PLR materials. Takes a lot of time, but it works like a charm!

If you are desperate then get a part-time job to supplement your money or outsource your time on freelance sites depending on your skills

> Find a mentor and build a relationship with them, that is genuine and sincere: Finding someone in the industry who is doing the things that you want to do and showing kindness to them through testimonals, video reviews or simply liking and commenting on social media sites

Being desperate or coming from a place of humility, not a bad place to start infact its sometimes what is needed, you got to lose it all to refocus on something else. Main thing is have laser focus, find a mentor, helps others more than yourself and contribute to the community

i hope this helps

I don't really recommend graphic design, because there are too many of graphic designers already, you need to be really great. I think programming is really way better to get money, easily to get job etc. Especially android programming is really worth to give a try.

I know the feeling. Because I have been there. To wake up one morning and realize that something must change or else you won't survive. It's scary and can happen anytime in the I.M world. That is the reason I compiled a big list of sites that pay you immediately for guest blogging. It's not peanuts.

You can easily make up to $200 with a single post. I don't mean to promote myself but I have been thanked many times over for the post by hundreds of desperate people and I think it will do anyone who reads it only good.

There are some newcomers to internet marketing who won't mind paying for rehashed PLR as you called it. However, many are savvy enough to realize for the same money you are charging, they could just as easily have brand new PLR. Most new comers only get taken once or twice and then learn better.

Absolutely true. There are lots of things you can do with PLR materials. For example, you can break them up into articles, put them on a WordPress blog, monetize the blog with AdSense and CB products, get it indexed and sell it on flippa.com. You can turn a PLR e-book into a video program and sell it as a WSO. You can take 2 or 3 PLR e-books, combine them, edit out the duplicated content and rewrite the text, then sell the resulting product on CB. You can do similar things with public domain materials, too.

None of this is quick if you're REALLY desperate and fending off debt collectors, but if you're feeling the pinch and have some time, it's all very doable.

I admit that i tried too many methods in the past and what already is stated here a couple of times, stick with one method in the first place.

First off you need to think what you are good at and start offering your skills online. Writing, blogging, do odd jobs around the town, you can also check Craigslist for some jobs there - you can do them fairly fast and earn some quick money.

If you've got a couple of months you can use social and SEO to build a great report with your customer base by being present at different points in their buying cycle, soft selling so to speak. As my dad (salesman of 40 + years) always says, the best sale is the one you don't even have to make.

I've found one site that sums the process up pretty well under the moniker of Sales V3. You can check it out here: Sales V3 - Selling To The New Buyer | MRS

Okay, for someone who has absolutely hit bottom, nowhere else to turn, needing short term income RIGHT NOW, you can earn money today by donating plasma. Twice a week, depending on where you are that pays $40-$50 a visit, about an hour and a half. So, $80-$100 a week for say four hours of your time. The local plasma bank deposits money onto a prepaid card that they give for you to use.

This is not going to resonate with a lot of people but here it goes. When desperate don't try thinking of building a business JUST to get out of the desperation it just simply won't work.

Your business should come out of abundant and positive state of mind. The ideas should be flowing from there and the focus shouldn't be the money.

IF you are desperate and need money then focus on JUST that - getting money.

The reason I stressed building a business because many people think that is the answer to all of their financial problems but that is a wrong way to approach the problem in the first place.

When in need for money try eBay, Craigslist, Fiverr stuff like that but DO not and I repeat DO not try to build a business because it will only bite you in the butt later on.

Making money and building a business should be two different paths they might overlap at times but they are definitely not one and the same.

Hope this gives a bit of a different perspective!

Let our lean, healthy and shredded WordPress Plugins make you more money... start here.

Ok, so if you're looking for a shortcut and have limited funds and limited time...

Cost for running your first month of business is 30 dollars. This is a shortcut but even shortcutting means doing it properly.

Let's start with the obvious but instead of being general, let's carve in a little and be a little more specific.

1. Choosing a niche is a of course the first thing. So, let's narrow it down for you...

Go with the niche of health, make money online or golfing. If you go with health or make money online be specific to what you are going to choose. You want to narrow it down so that you can really focus and go out and learn and consume knowledge and become exceptional quickly. This will have you with a great level of confidence to tackle what folds out next.

So...

For example if you're choosing health make sure you be more specific then look at thing like - belly fat and abs, muscle building

The same goes for make money online; narrow it down to something like - email marketing, traffic or advertising, same goes for golfing. With that said go out to clickbank or jvzoo and pick a product now. You'll be building your business around what you'll be promoting. Make sure you're promoting something of quality and the sales page has to look great too.

2. Spend 2 days consuming absolutely everything that you possibly can about the niche you're focusing on. I don't care how tired you are, stay up to the brink if you have to because as you consume this knowledge you need to take notes, great notes. If you don't take notes then forget everything that I'm telling you. We're all students, even Brendon Burchard, Frank Kern, Tony Robbing, Igor, Daniel As My Network and many others. If you can't commit to your craft then you'll never make a dime.

3. Forget what people tell you about the "shiny object syndrome". There is no such thing. That term was made up to keep people focused on the goal, but if you have structure, then you understand how to manage your "syndrome". These things are shiny to some people for a reason. Now that you have some focus, then you should know to ONLY consume niche specific (shiny) information as much as possible. Never stop learning, you never know what you'll learn from a product or content. Consume, apply, teach and commit to memory. (go to the library and get a small memory book and exercise your brain. Instead of tv, this and your study will be your fun. The better you are at retaining information from repetition and other memory methods the better. This is why I say take notes. See it, take a note of it, say it out loud, taste it... Ok, maybe not the last one just yet

4. Once you've consumed a ton of information and I do mean a ton. If you don't feel like an expert by now then you haven't taken enough notes, you haven't read enough blogs, you haven't been to enough forums to learn, you haven't reached the point yet to where you can be of value to another person. The reason you take notes is to segment your learning. The brain learns better when things are broken apart, so write things down in a manner that's useful and easy to remember for you. Do NOT move forward unless you know, not think... Know that you're valuable to other people in your niche.

5. Along the way, what I want you to do is get 4 sheets of paper and on these 4 sheets of paper list 4 things about what you've learned that you're willing and read to share. If you look at my signature you see I have 4 topics. You need to have the same, 4 topics on what you're willing to share.

These will become your lead magnets. Without going to deep into explanation, consider your lead magnet something that draws your prospects into buying whatever product you're selling or promoting. Much like a great preview to a movie or a taste test before you buy the food. Give value, entice.

Heck you can copy and print this out and list your topics right here:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Topic 1 Title - (put your title here)

Your picture goes here, center it (people trust - people)

Explain what benefit would your prospects get out of reading this?

Explain how you learned what you're about to teach them.

Bullet point 1

Bullet point 2

Bullet point 3

In the midst of you giving them this free valuable content (lead magnet), make sure near the bottom you intertwine what you're trying to sell them. You want to recommend them to take a look at your product or promotion. This way you're offering them a natural progression of what they just read. You'll ask them something like "if you'd like to take your results to the next level then I'd recommend you to check this out". This layout is very similar to the examples in my signature. Give value and recommend.

Warm Regards,

[Name]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Topic 2 Title - (put your title here)

Your picture goes here, center it (people trust - people)

Explain what benefit would your prospects get out of reading this?

Explain how you learned what you're about to teach them.

Bullet point 1

Bullet point 2

Make sure you have your affiliate link inside your free lead magnet.

We're almost done...

6. You'll need a blog, you'll understand why in a sec. Go to godaddy.com and get a .com. No other extensions. A .com is what you'll be grabbing. Make sure it's a name that you'll be happy with, this will be your blog. My blog name is Daniel As My Network, it's a general name that's not specific to any niche. I can use an extension like...

danielasmynetwork.com/weightloss

of you can just purchase a domain based on your niche but make sure to keep it general.

You can google Godaddy Promo Code and save yourself some money.

As far as hosting your site, you can go to HostGator.com, click the tab that says web hosting plan (top left) then click the baby plan package for $7.96/month and get started for only 0.01 cent by just entering the code danielasmynetwork when you check out and uncheck the boxes above the check out trying to sell you other features. Now, you don't have to use that promotional code above, you can use another one or the one they already have there but that's my code if you wanted to get your first month for only a dollar.

If you need help getting your site up and running with wordpress or the name server then just google it or reach out to me.

7. Next what you'll do once you have your site set up is install a free theme. There's thousands, so take your time.

8. Next you want to get an auto responder. I use Get Response, you can just google "get response" (minus the quotes) and you won't be charged for the 1st 30 days. They have all types of videos that will explain how to do everything. Make sure you put your campaigns all to single opt in, in your campaigns settings by unclicking the boxes next to

Email subscriptions
Web subscriptions
Import subscriptions

9. After you're set up you'll create 1 campaign and this campaign will of course be for one of your lead magnets. You'll have 3 messages that will go out and each message will be pertaining to giving out the remaining lead magnets. You'll give 1 away and then give the others away during the course of your autoresponder sequence. So your subscribers will see 4 messages total.

Your welcome message and then your 3 emails giving them your other lead magnets away. Once you've created your lead magnets make sure to save them to your media section in your Wordpress website, this will allow you to grab a link and it also allows you to have the document open up immediately when they go to download instead of them downloading and collecting dust along with the other material they have purchased or downloaded.

Also, space your messages out to every other day and deliver it based on their timezones (time machine) Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday are the best days I've seen to convert but that's really subjective to the niche and it's demographic. Testing is your friend.

10. Get someone on fiverr to create your 4 lead magnet ebook covers.

Once you have written your content and created a webform and create a thank you page in which you explain what you'll be giving them and put a download button there with a link to one of your lead magnets. Put your favorite one there first. Go to the tab at the top called landing page and then just drag and click to create your landing page.

To start out, here's a simple example you can model for now. Landing Page Example

11. Once you have everything set up, you'll get traffic to that landing page by running solo ads and targeting people and brands in your specific niche on Facebook. I really wish I had time to go over all the traffic but considering I don't know what niche you will choose my information may be fruitless.

Your only objective right now, is to do everything possible to build that list to as many people as possible. You already have value, you already have something to sell, all you need now is traffic.

I hope this helps.

There are really good comments and feedback here, and here is another one....

Chances are, we hope you are not down to the wire, and have turned to the internet to save you -- because that is a shot in the dark -- too many moving parts and the process is a bit longer than most would think even if you have money.

If you have been breaking into the internet business for a while, then chances are you have a crap load of assets and inventory that you don't really realize you have. Most "would-be" internet marketers have a lot of start and stops with ideas that go unfinished and undeveloped.

NOTE: I am a big fan of the posts above that suggested cutting back and going lean. Reduce expenses first (this is EXACTLY what i did), from here I was able to do some amazing things without the stress of big bills. If you need to add some odd jobs into the mix like yard work, research, writing, and anything else you have a particular talent doing. Save the money gained here, and use it to really opt in to ideas that you may have already lined up and on-deck, then you can...

Revisit one of those ideas that you absolutely love and your research and experience tells you it can be a winner. If it is a service, offer it now. If you have a physical product begin selling it.

Find forums (like this one) and seek out those that desperately need your service or product.

The idea is to just do it. You will make mistakes, but you will fail forward and grow.

As a wrap up:
1. Reduce expenses now. No need for the big $100 phone bill, find something else (at least for now).
2. Pay down anything that you can.
3. Eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, rice with beans, drink water, etc.
4. Give yourself a monthly cushion, even if it is a few dollars.
5. Use your savings to build your business.
6. Offer services like research, writing, and more.
7. Respond to forums like this to see if your services are needed and you can offer them with a quick response time to get some money coming in.

I hope this helps. You can PM for any more specific information.

Much success to you and to us all...

There is a lot of really good advice in here. I would like to add if you have some IM skills then going directly to local offline business is the fastest way to be paid well for you what you do. Just make sure you can handle what they want done so you don't burn any bridges.

I have been quite a desperate situation myself so I'll just say what I did to dig myself out of the hole.

A couple of years ago my full time income online was wiped out completely due to an algorithm update. I was just recently married and lived in a tiny apartment, and I also had huge student loan bills. I only had enough savings to last me 2 months..

The first thing I did was send in my resume and apply for jobs. I hated the thought of going back to the 9-5 lifestyle, but this way I could at least get some stable income coming in. As I was doing this, I started a new authority blog that could earn me some affiliate income. I began updating the blog on a daily basis around some KWs that would bring me mostly targeted long tail traffic.

While doing this I found this online program called Leapforce. Basically you get 13.95/hour to manually evaluate pages for search engines. To sign up you basically just apply online and take a quiz to get accepted into the program. If any of you decide to do this just make sure you study the material they give you so you can pass.

If you get accepted, it might be able to make you enough to scrape by if you live frugally.

Did this for a few months and my blog eventually started earning me enough money to live off of. However, I know this is still putting all of my eggs in one basket so I am continuously educating myself and increasing my value so I can begin to share that value with others in return for money. It has recently become obvious to me that this is the way to long term income.

The mindset is the most important part in making it thorough desperate times. You have to eliminate as much negative thoughts as you can, otherwise you will gravitate towards negativity and failure. As soon as my business got whiped out it was a huge blow, but I almost immediately knew I would make money online again. Having this level of certainty in my head allowed me to subconsciously do things that were productive towards my goal each day.

There is the Salvation Army, food banks, city human service departments and the like to help with emergency situations.

Sell anything you don't absolutely need in a yard sale or on eBay. Do odd jobs around town or work overtime if you have a job and it's available. This could help give you some breathing room.

If you aren't down to the wire yet but know you need to make money fairly quickly, selling some sort of service is probably the fastest way to do it. Think about what skills you have to offer - could be writing, could be the grunt work like putting up links, blog commenting, creating graphics...whatever you can do, you can bet someone will be willing to pay you to do it for them.

While you're doing that to keep money coming in now, find a business model you like and start pegging away at it until it becomes a big enough income stream. This could be anything really - it doesn't matter, as long as you have some income coming in already.

I Do sell electronic cigarrettes online and offline, sometimes i hang arround in my shop grinding the internet from there. one thing came up when i read this post: every 2-3 days or so some folks come buy and ask me if i want my shopwindows to be cleaned, i allways ask them HOW MUCH?, since my shop is pretty but small i think paying 3$ for cleaning one window is fair enough, since when you are really good in it you can clean a window in less then 5 minutes. so my conclusion if you REALLY NEED CASH IMMIDIATELY:

---> Get yourself a broom, a bucket (with soapwater or something simmilar) and some old newspapers to dry the windows...

---> Go to big shopping streets and ask smaller shops with big shop windows if they want to have them cleaned for arround 3$ each...

---> Ask them after you cleaned their windows when you should be cleaning them again? make an apointment...! tell them that every 10th cleaning is free...!

---> REPEAT...

I as somebody that is running this shop will be REALLY HAPPY that you could do that...! i would even give you tip if this where done nice and neat!

So, think about that for a moment...what you guys think about this idea?

Wanna See how the BIG BOYS made their first $ online? guess what, now u can! go there and watch: http://www.nice1marketing.com
Check out "Launch Cam" as well! wanna be in the next show? go! catch me if you can! ;)

Fastest way to make some quick money -- without knowing the person's skills -- is to go to craigslist closest to their area and search the gigs. Many times these are cash type jobs that can be done quickly and locally.

You need a method that has an easy entry point and where the rest depends on your time and your desire to succeed.
Also this method needs to be unique, I'm a big believer in thinking outside the box. Find an idea (or method) like that and the rest will be history, you will never look back.

find a good mentor and follow him/her blindly. Don't use your own mind because you will waste your several years in desperation

1] Start out small when you want to make money online, to minimize potential losses.
2] Decide what your niche will be, before you can make any online income.
3] Find an unique idea, connect it with your selected niche - and you have a winner.
