Fastest way to make $2000-$3000 in one month?

71 replies
I know that isn't much but I've been jobless for over 8 months and it pisses me off. Not that I really want to get back to a normal job but I have no choice now...only there is still no job in sight. Not even the most crapiest job. What's wrong with me? Nobody is hiring me. :confused:

Anyway I'm trying to get this internet marketing thing going but it's running slow...
I don't get much done. What some can do in 1 day, I need days to do...

I can't get much done because of the stress I'm having... It seems it will never end. Anyway I need a lightning fast system to cash in...I'm on tight budget. Tips are welcome.

      Can you write well? You can start getting freelance work if you wish to work from home. Listing any other skills you have will be helpful as well.

    If you could learn this at lightning speed, everyone and their brother would be making money online. A few people do get lucky, but for the rest it takes persistence and a lot of work. It's like riding a bike, it takes practice and some falling on your face. But once you figure it out, you figure it out.

    This thread started by Paul Myers will give you some good ideas:

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...desperate.html

    At the very least, if you don't mind writing, is you can write articles for other Warriors / Marketers (there are other marketing forums).

    Secondly, don't stop looking for a job, treat that like a fulltime job. You should be looking for work /networking/ going to job fairs 6 to 8 hours a day 5 days a week to generate leads.

    I've found that in the past when I put a lot of pressure on myself to make X amount of money in a month, it led me towards "get rich quick schemes". The reality is that turning a consistent profit online is challenging. Certainly not impossible, and many people do it, but it really takes time.

    As was already mentioned, getting paid to write articles is a viable income. If you can even write two an hour, and charge $5 a piece, that's $80 a day for 8 hours of work. If you are a half decent writer, the demand will be there for you. I've seen it happen time and time again for people here on this forum.

    Once you have a customer base, you could expand your services. Reinvest some money into tools that would allow you to do more work for people.

    Yes, writing articles doesn't sound like much fun, but if you need the $$$ it is a viable option for you.

    Katya,

    The only way you're going to get at this income level fairly quickly is to write. Article and content writing will get you there much faster.

    I would pick an evergreen niche (weight loss, etc.) and write 5 articles (300 - 500) words and put that up on a simple website or blog and put up a price of $10. Come back here to the forum and offer to write an article for FREE to a few respected members here. You can then offer the 5 article pack as a writing example for free.

    Also, you're an attractive young woman. Look for CPA networks that have offers for makeup. You can then make YouTube videos demonstrating make up techniques with these products and redirect them back to a blog with an affiliate link. This is similar to the Mario Andros sales model. Google Maria and you'll see.

    This is a start and you won't get to $2K monthly overnight BUT you'll build your name and recognition here pretty quickly if you do it right. In that sense, it's priceless and can open up other doors for you.

    Don't give up on this as you have the most precious commodity right now. That is TIME. Not by choice but you have the time to try this and get some traction.

    Good luck!
    Dennis

      Asking same question in different ways doesn't yield different results. Yes, it's difficult to work when you are under stress but with discipline you can do it. There is no magic button or post that will solve your problem - only your own action can do that.

      http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...situation.html

      You have a lot people trying to help and offering advice - what have you done wiith that advice?

      http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...mmissions.html

      You seem to be holding back and waiting for someone to give an exact answer that will provide money to you. It doesn't work that way. People can only suggest steps to take but you have to establish a plan and follow it through.

    Normally I don't recommend products, but eh what the heck.

    I made my first few dollars online by making a squidoo landing page and pointing 40 ezine articles towards it. The landing page was pretty much a testimonial page of the product.

    I still make money with that lens.

    Since then I have found other products based around this method, yet they improve it.

    I would have to say my favorite is potpiegirls one week marketing.

    Here is the link (no affiliate link) : One Week Marketing with PotPieGirl - How I Make Money Online For Free - My Affiliate Marketing Guide

    I only recommend this product if you don't already have a plan to make money.

    In all honesty you do not need a product though, there is a wealthy of information on this forum. Keep reading around and then post your plan on here, other people will be glad to help you out at that point.

    No easy answer but in the first instance I would sit down and allocate some time to write articles, get a good spinner (free) and then build up some contacts. Accept the fact that you are going to get paid small amounts but its better than nothing. At the same time don't forget in all the running around to spend some time growing your own repeat business be that clickbank, adsense whatever. This the repeat momney that by and large comes in no matter what.

    I am sorry but unless you are extrmely lucky, you are not going to become rich over night but you are in with a chance of long term money if you get it right

    You are doing it all wrong, it is not us that you should ask how you can make money, it is your self that you should ask what are you good at, and then you can come here and ask us how you can make profit of "the thing you are good at".

    My very first business was a web hosting, same mistake as yours. Wanted to make money and heard that with web hosting there was, in fact there was some but I didn't even realized the consequences that such business could bring and how fast I could sink without the deep knowledge which I should of know.

    The suggestion I can give you, is to start with something you are familiar with, with something you do have decent knowledge (is it writing, a topic you are well known with...or even programming). Start from there, ideas will pop-out in meanwhile, new options to generate revenue will come and you will be able to track down those that work for you and those that don't...just my 2 cents.

Here is a forum of some of the most experienced marketers around and they are all saying **GASP** it don't work that way, take it slow, don't give up your "real" job yet, work every day creating content and focus.

    Hey Katya,

    First find out what your top skills/expertise are. Ask people who know you if you have trouble getting ideas.

    Once you find that out then see if there is a market for your skills/expertise.

    If there is one then develop an offer for that market. It can be a product or a service. A service will bring in money quickly as you don't have to take time in creating a product. Just remember that with a product you can make money passively, instead of actively working as a service provider. The choice is yours.

    Once you've developed an offer then the next step is to market your offer like it's the most important thing in the world for you. Market online and/or offline. Let people know what you can do for them and why you're the obvious person to go to.

    Hope that helps

    - Sam

        First of all lets clear something up There isn't no fast way to make money, it sucks, I know. Ok, you been doing IM for 8 months now, that means you know a fair bit which could easily help a newbie out... Put it into a guide and make a WSO out of it, if the WSO does well, look for JV's for that product.

        The bigger question is, how productive are you? Are you distracted easy, can you sit at a PC and work 8 hours straight? If you been in IM for 8 months but wasn't all that productive, that could be your problem.

          Hi

          Everyone here seems to advise u to go the article writing way.

          Personally I don't think that is viable option in your case, considering the amount u want to make per month and that too in quick time.

          Here is my suggestion:

          If u don't have your own product (it has too be one with great salesletter though otherwise no good bringing traffic and no conversion), then become Affiliate of 2 programs as follows:

          1... join one which is priced $47 to $97
          2... And join another that is monthly membership program so u make commsion every month.

          Make sure the 2 u choose above comes with great direct response marketing material so that much of the work is already done for u. Also commsion to be atleast 60%+.

          Then make sure for the 2 programs u will promote, have squeeze page and autoresponder so that u r building long term biz and also warming the lead. Squeeze page can be simple - more important is the copy of it rather than the graphics.

          Then I would just go crazy with some good ol offline gurilla marketing using card size flyers for street and door-to-door flyering and shop window display.

          Offcourse the copy on your flyers must do the job of generating enough interest in the prospect mind to go to your site (better if u also add in a phone number where u can record 24 hr message and mention that on the flyer).

          Offcourse carry on with whatever online marketing you can do. But in my opinion u can try the above to get some results coming ur way. just make sure u follow the direct marketing principles for your flyers/squeeze page.

              hifalily,

              I wasn't picking on any niche but just giving you a general example/plan to follow.

              I have read so many posts here that mention article posting method being the quick way to make some money. That's not my take though.

              I think Article posting actually whilst free if u write it yourself can be quiet slow in bringing results. Thats why I recommend the method/plan that I put forward earlier.

              Its good old fashioned gureilla marketing employing direct response marketing principles. I am sure you can get off to a good start if u follow it.

              Giving u my personal example, i actually took up a leaflet distributor job locally for few hours a week. And secretly whilst dropping the flyers that were handed to me by the business that gave me the job, I also was dropping my own postcard size flyers offering freebie and directing the reader to my website. I did get good results out of doing that. So double bonus for me - getting paid for leafletting and secondly making some sales for my own business.

    Katya,

    You can find the equivalent of a "job" online if you like doing article writing or doing manual tasks such as building backlinks etc.

    To get $3k a month you would need to ideally earn $15/hr which should be possible, it may be a hard slog.

    Much of IM is a long term persuit, doing stuff today to earn money way way in the future, so if you do need cash now I am afraid a job (or job-like freelancing on the internet) may be the best way forward.

    Hi KatyaSenina

    It's probably best to focus on what your good at in this present moment.
    Continue job hunting offline. Keep visiting some of the areas that you have already submited resumes to and keep asking for an interview. Where them down until they finally can see that you are serious about working for them. Visit them alot until they can't forget you and they say:

    "oh..... hi again KatyaSenina Kind of like relationship marketing They'll feel like they know you because your in there so often asking about the job. Be respectful, smile, ask if you can check back again next week so they know that you want the job. Show them your Not going away.
    And finally say Thank you

    You will show them you are a hard worker, and focused at obtaining a goal and that is the goal of getting that interview with them.
    Good Luck

        Hi Katya,

        I would re- iterate what all the other Warriors have more or less said and start out with a realistic goal...

        To earn that kind of money so quickly without spending heaps of money on advertising is an unrealistic goal in my opinion. Don't buy into all the IM sales hype that promises you a Gazillion Dollars by this time next month - Guaranteed! LOL It's a load of BULL!

        If you are serious about making it online I would advise you to start building a list of subscribers in your niche ASAP and NEVER QUIT! Even if that means you have to take a mundane job to pay the bills...

        As money is tight I'd start with writing articles, blogging, social media etc.

        Do whatever it takes to keep your dream alive...

        Best of luck!

    You just have to take it easy. Under stress you never gonna be productive and time will go by anyway. Now you start sitting down and learning and doin' and time will go by anyway but you are getting somewhere. So My advice is keep on jumping up and down stressed out and watch as time go by, or else, sit down and study and don't even notice time goes by. You have no money now and won't have money in 6 months either if you keep doing what you do. So get on the action wagon and ride it babe.

    Hi Katya,

    If you used to easily get jobs, the problem might be the jobs economy rather than you. It could also be your job hunt technique. Try the advice from the book "the very quick job search" by Michael Farr.

    Anyway let's focus on your online business here.

    Originally Posted by KatyaSenina View Post

    Look in the "mind warriors" sub-forum here for the threads "just became a victim," "stress busting," "pooped on," and "you need money." Also there are also several threads on procrastination and time management.

    I think you should spend one hour a day reviewing this material to improve your focus, attitude, outlook, scheduling skills, etc. At a regular job someone else would provide this structure for you. Now you need to learn to provide it to yourself.

    Break your goal into smaller steps. Vitesh is absolutely right: instead of a $3000 month, learn how to make $100 profit days. Look for the many threads here about $100 a day strategies and about what a beginning can achieve in the first month. Spend a week browsing those ideas. Ask questions here about the ones that look most appealing to you and don't require that you purchase anyone's program. After one week, pick your own favorite strategy and focus on it 100% for a month.

    Thank you guys for your support. I feel so much better. Came up with a plan.

    1. Keep searching for a job.

    2. I feel like I can pull this writing thing of and can easily write some good quality articles. I'm thinking of offering services at sites like Guru, elance, digitalpoint and maybe here???
    EDIT: if someone needs articles written, I need testimonials, so I'm willing to write a free article.

    3. I do have enough marketing knowledge. The hardest part is yet putting it into action. I agree there is no overnight success. Anyway I can put togeter a small report with basic marketing knowledge and sell it for $7 each.

    4. Find 5 quality products to promote and make 5 minisites. I'm going to apply the Gsniper principles. George Brown offers a great free training. When I get the money I'm definitely going to buy his complete course, because I believe it's the real deal. Anyway basically it's a matter of finding great keywords with low competition. I've already found a few keywords with over 10.000-22.200 monthly searches and less than 6000-10.000 competitors.

    I'm so excited. I actually feel like this is going to work! Thank you guys again for your support.

    don't think too much...you could do this right now. You can make some serious money offering services like writing, designing etc..etc...there is lots of demand on the various webmaster forums.

    Even if you only would charge $5 per article, if you get the hang of it you can easily write 4 or 5 400 words articles/hour...which is already way above what the average worker makes...and you can do this from HOME.

    The other service is blog commenting, things like that. Just yesterday i saw someone charging $100 (<--- lol) for 200 article submissions. This is way, way too much since i can get the same thing for $20...and then use some software for this.

    If you look on forums like BHW, wickedfidfire, WARRIORS, DP...there is zillions of webmasters paying good money for services of all kind. I am one of them..i dont even want to know how much i spent this month alone for articles and backlinks

    Its important that you start out slow and then slowly get rep - it can be you might have problems if you're just starting out...but the more people know your name and the quality of your work the better it will get.

    And it can get that well that you later on can outsource and let others do the work and you simply take the orders. Seriously, there is good money to make.

    Try to exercise, eat healthy and get rest - these will all help with your stress levels. If you are calmer, you'll function better and will be more at ease while working - resulting in better productivity and accomplishments.

    If writing is one of your things as your follow-up seems to suggest, awesome! Offer your skills in a limited WSO to get started. Do some free articles to the big wigs here in the forum and ask them for an honest eval first (maybe then use them as testimonials with permission of course).

    Start with what you know - if you know about dog grooming, do something about dog grooming. If it's how to keep your computer running in top shape, awesome, go with that. You don't *have* to do something based on your experience, it just speeds the process to completion.

    Measurable goals that you hold yourself to are a must. It's too easy to spend all day on great forums like this one and wham! the day is gone but you haven't gotten any where on your goals list.

    Hang in there!

    There are tons of ways to make money online... Affiliate marketing is a great way to make some fast cash but you can also get involved in things like CPA, VMC Networks, Freelancing... all of which can be quite profitable in a short period of time.

    Unfortunately in most cases if you want to make good money online you'll more than likely need a little training on the subject... Since in order to make really good money it requires a little knowledge about the subject, right?

    Kinda like saying... go invest in the stock marketing. Sure you might make a few bucks randomly on luck but if you want to make REALLY good money at it you need a little training.

    Warrior forum has a lot of great info available (including some great products offered) If you've got the time I say spend a day reading posts on here about what you want to do. However if you're a little pressed for time I would recommend just picking up a good training product to get you started. Then go full force on it.

    No matter what you choose to do persistence is what's going to pay off.

    I'm with you! I have been out of work for 2 years now, but due to a disability I too am trying to learn how to make some money. I started writing for Ezine Jan 8th, and have 13 live articles. I haven't earned yet, but keeping my head up! I hope things work out with you. I want to start writing PLR for people, but so far I can't even get there. Just working at it daily. Don't ever give up! Best of luck to you.

    Just keep at it and never give up. I was jobless and broke a month ago and have pulled in $2500 in my first month just reading around here. If you have $37, invest in the War Room, it's WORTH IT. I promise. If not, spend $7-$17 on a WSO that sounds interesting and is getting good testimonials and FOLLOW IT. Take action, most people pick one up, move onto another and never actually take action on the product. If you want it to come, just work hard, the WSO's will lead you down the path you need.

      At this time I can't afford (sadly) to become a WSO would you have any advice on what else I could do?

        Hello KatyaSenina,

        It's really good to hear that you took action to come up with a plan. However, without trying to bust your excitement, please understand that the number one reason most Warriors don't make money is because they are letting themselves be pulled into this direction and then into that.

        It isn't easy to switch off to the constant marketing messages on the Internet. The only way to pull this off is by becoming focused. You need a razor-sharp focus to keep on top of your goals.

        This means:
        • Switch off your email notifications
        • Switch off instant messaging software
        • Try to work in bursts of 50 minutes and then allow yourself a 10 minute break
        • Eliminate all other distractions as much as possible

        Even the most hardened marketers grapple with distractions every single day - but what sets the winners apart from the losers is dedication, commitment to themselves and their goal, hard work and passion for what they do.

        You can do this if you really want it. Do you?
        Regards
        Monika

          This is absolutely true with me. The reasons why a lot of Warriors fail also is because there are just SO MANY ways to make money online. I've had serious problems focussing and concentrating on the project at hand, sometimes getting everything to where it is juuust about to take off, then moving on to the next big thing. I have a dribble of money from so many projects it's just not funny. ALL of which would have made me a lot of money if I would have just concentrated on that and that alone before I was wandered off track.

          My advice:

          = If you're going to go after CPA offers, then go after CPA offers.
          = If you're going to write articles, then concentrate on getting clients, one by one if you have to.
          = If you're going to promote affiliate products then... I think you get what I mean!

          Focus, Focus, Focus, and you will eventually make more than just a living.

    Your plan to write and sell articles sounds good -- can I suggest that while you're doing this, you write an article every day or two for your own use? Pick an affiliate product or two from ClickBank, then sign up with eZine Articles and a couple of other article directories and start writing articles to drive traffic to your affiliate pages. You can make a Squidoo lens or two, or start a free WordPress of Blogger blog to use to promote your affiliate products and point the articles there. Affiliate marketing is a great way to sell when you don't have any money to spend, it's not too difficult and is a really good skill to learn. If you don't know how to start, download the book from my signature file and use it to learn the basics, it's really a good tutorial for beginners. You'll have to optin to download, but you can always unsubscribe. My main point though is to spend just a little bit of time every day on your own stuff, you might be surprised at how quickly some good articles can bring in some subscribers and some sales. Write for other people to start earning some income, and keep doing a little bit to build your own business. That way you make some cash, but you don't feel like you gave up on your dream.

    Katya,
    Also, you're an attractive young woman. Look for CPA networks that have offers for makeup. You can then make YouTube videos demonstrating make up techniques with these products and redirect them back to a blog with an affiliate link. This is similar to the Mario Andros sales model. Google Maria and you'll see.

    This is a start and you won't get to $2K monthly overnight BUT you'll build your name and recognition here pretty quickly if you do it right. In that sense, it's priceless and can open up other doors for you.
    Good luck!

    This is actually a fantastic idea.

    Check out Kandee Johnson's YouTube videos:


    #1 on YouTube for "teeth whitening" with 383,912 views

    She has 190,578 channel subscribers http://www.youtube.com/user/kandeejohnson

    Her blog could use a lot of work kandee the make-up artist

    She has a PayPal Donate button at the very bottom!!!!

    This young lady is leaving so much money on the table..... it's ridiculous.

    You don't have to spend countless hours building websites and writing articles to make money online.

    Do something you love.... share it with the masses.... monetize it...... make a fortune.

    You gotta treat it as a business and not a hobby. If you think IM is a hobby you never gonna make a penny. Treat it as a full time job and once you reach your goal of 2K per month and 3K per month you can go into hobby mode and maintain that if the busines you had built allows you.
    On the other hand I'd be interested of getting some writing done for me for a good testimonial. "EDIT: if someone needs articles written, I need testimonials, so I'm willing to write a free article." Don't worry about these jokstersoffering you the redlight district. Have your values and laugh about them. Take some Prozac and a B complex. Cheers

      Hi Katya. Honestly in my opinion the best place to start making money is through adsense. Its one of the quickest ways to make money. Dont get me wrong it will take alot of time and effort to make $100/day but its a good place to begin to make your first dollar online. If you understand how keyword research works it wont be hard to put up a site that makes about $1-5/day. Now imagine having 20 sites that make that much EACH.

    Here is a plan to get started, I know it works because it is
    exactly what I did a few years ago.

    1) Post your offer to write a free article in exchange for a
    testimonial, limit it to 10 or what you think you can handle
    for a day or two's worth of writing. Trust me, if you are
    motivated enough, writing 10 quality articles in a day or
    two is not that hard. You want to be able to get the articles
    out so you can start getting your testimonials.

    2) Get a free blog or if you already have a personal site you can
    list your new writing services there. List prices, a way to get a hold
    of you, article samples and your testimonials.

    3) Offer your services in the Warrior For Hire section and on any
    other IM forums you are a member of.

    4) Follow up with the people that took you up on your offer to see
    if you can do any more articles for them.

    One thing you can do is offer a discount on bulk orders. For example
    if you are charging $5 per article you can offer to do 5 for $20.

    If you do a good enough job you will get repeat business. However,
    it is important that you:

    -Write quality content
    -Deliver when you say you will
    -Update your client regularly so they are not chasing you down
    -Respond to any emails you get from clients immediately

    Hope this helps.

    It is a challenge to get the fastest way of making money online. But maybe you can follow the route of working on articles. Otherwise there are home business ideas and opportunities, but I would not say they are the fastest way of making money. This helps you to learn along the way as you work on the foundations of your business. Once your break through has come, you shall ever be grateful for being patient and consistent.

    Good luck!

    There's no one and only way to make quick cash online, Katya.

    It takes work and discipline ...and a plan.

    Get a plan, stick to it and you'll make money, if not-change the plan.

    As far as a coaching programs go, I don't really
    know what to recommend since they are too many
    and most of 'em never deliver on the quick cash promise.

    However, in couple of days time, the White Hat Copycat
    will go live and it promises to get you making money within
    the next 30 days, so you might as well give it a try.

    I havent read any of the above responses so this may have already been mantioned, but if you are good at English and dont mind writing large volumes of text you could offer your writing skills as a service in writing articles for your fellow warriors on this forum in the warrior for hire section. I think there is an initial investment of 20 dollars reqd in setting up the post.

    Katya,

    A simple plan would be :

    1. Start a thread in warriors for hire section.

    2. Give away free articles for the first 5 people against a review.

    3. Keep your price competitive...

    4. Make a blog and post your services along with the testimonials.

    5. Make a catchy forum signature

    6. Be hyper active in the forum while dropping your signature..

    You will be in business soon.....

    Profit Formula

    Traffic x Conversion x Price = Profit

    You need 100 people a day with a sales page that converts at 1% and a profit margin (you make per sale) $25 to make $25 a day.

    To make between $3000 and $4000 a month you need to get more traffic, get a higher converting sales page or sell a higher priced product.

    The most difficult of the three is a higher converting sales page. (The industry average for sales page conversion is around 2% but be conservative at 1%)

    The easiest is to find a higher priced product. ( sell one product a day for $100 profit)

    You can increase your traffic. (400 people a day = $100 a day for a $25 profit)

    Make adjustments to increase the value of all three. (Traffic 200 x Conversion 2% x $30 = $3600 a month)

    It really depends on your skills. Capitalize on your skills. If you can write, then write for others or put together PLR packs to sell. If you can build sites, flip them. I don't know what your skills are but you're going to make more money quicker if you have some skills and can sell your services.

    Here is another ID to help you Katya. Ebay and Amazon.

    Forget article writing. Your accent will show through.

    Here is what I did and still doing for a quick buck. I bought some stuff on carboot sales (flea market in the USA) and was selling them on Ebay. What ever you put up on Ebay it will sell, but usually for a very depressed price. That's why people also call it fleabay, cheapbay, etc.

    You are in Holland and you might need someone like me, who offers UK address and shipping and receiving service in order for this deal to work properly, because of the postal cost to a foreign country and many ebay sellers don't post to other countries. But for the cheap price I charge it's well worth it. Just a small expense to you out of the great profits you can make.

    Here is how it works in a nutshell.

    One day I was researching stuff I've bought on a carboot sale and came to Amazon and found the same stuff there go for much higher. 2-3 times higher.
    So I put the stuff up on Amazon and they have sold within 3 days. I paid a total of £10 pounds for the two items and sold them for £185 on Amazon.

    The same two items on Ebay would have sold for perhaps £50-60 on a good day. Another Item I purchased for £20 on carboot sale, didn't sell on ebay for £55, but listing it on Amazon sold for £135.

    Than I started to look for "cheap" stuff on Ebay and also followed prices on Amazon for the same items and so I started to buy stuff on Ebay and was and 'am still selling on Amazon and also on a Hungarian auction site. I am Hungarian and because of my accent I can't offer article writing services either.

    In any business you are in, including IM. You have to know what are you good at, or what do you enjoy doing and go for those, but you also have to know your limitations and for me, a couple of those limitations are article writing, and video marketing unfortunately.

    Anyway, back to the Ebay-Amazon deal. If you just spend a couple of hours every day looking through those two sites, I am sure within a few days you will start seeing the potential of doing it. If you are gonna treat it as a job and not some quick bucks opportunity, in a month or so you'll be starting to make your two grand a month income from home in your pyjamas.

    But than of course you have to get dressed to go to the post office for posting those items you had sold.

    The profit will depend on the price of the items of course. There is a buyer for everything and sooner or later the buyer will come. (depends, if it's a good deal or if over priced) I am not talking about a Picasso for a 100 grand being overpriced, but a 3610 nokia mobile phone for 200 would be overpriced, but for 10 it would sell quick. I am sure you get my point.

    What I am trying to say is, keep your price reasonable for a quick sale. If you were to buy that same, would you buy it at the price you are selling or not. If honestly yes, than others will too.

    Good luck

      Great inspiration story Jikanv!

      If its not a secret hope you can reveal, do you ship these products from your country or you do a some kind of drop shipping? Also are you selling items to customers in Europe or in USA?

    I didn't see many people telling you the one of the easiest ways to build a long term business, so I'll state the obvious.

    1. Buy high quality PLR products in a certain niche.
    2. Rebrand it, making it unique to yourself. (change title, graphics, bit of the content.)
    3. Also using PLR, get a similar, but shorter ebook report. (10-20 pages).
    4. Now create a sqeeze page where you collect peoples email addresses in exchange for the small ebook.
    5. Now promote the main product to your list.
    6. Begin with step 1 again and create a whole lot of products in one niche that you can dominate and promote all of these to your list as it gets bigger.

    Works.

      Works.

      This is a great advice and i personally have been giving a lot of thoughts to make it work with PLR, even the idea to have my own product is more challenging and it rings to me as more honest in a long term way of building some sort of credibility in IM industry.

      Promoting a PLR product that i never used and never had success with is not attractive option and could lead to more people unsubscribing from my list than staying on it, or not?

      Also one step is missing at that is the way to get traffic to her squeeze page. If shes unemployed or broke paying for PPC is probably not a profitable option. Also doing SEO and ranking that site could be really time consuming if she needs to make some money till christmas.

      How can we make this work on a budget and time limit?

    I think the trouble with the IM business is getting traffic and that's where most future IM marketers give up. Traffic is the soul of online marketing.

    How to get traffic (quick traffic) when you are new to Internet business? No money, no idea, no know how. Squeeze pages promising riches and fast buck. Selling the concept but not the method. That's why Katya is giving up. But again if it was easy, everyone and their dog would do it.

    I mean most e-books are vague at best. Katya needs to read and understand what she reads, but that's hard because too much info coming from every which direction.

    Any good Easy Ideas for Fast TRAFFIC?? ...for a newby?

    Decide which of the 3 main money-making methods best suits your passion and strengths:

    1. Creating content/infoproducts and selling them online
    2. Affiliate marketing - draw an audience in and pre-sell them on various products/services
    3. Sell your own service (graphics, writing, legal, accounting, VA, etc...)
    4. Set up heavy content sites and make money through advertising

    There are MANY businesses and opportunities within these 4 areas to make the kind of money you are talking about...but they only work if you put 110% effort, take massive action and stick with them.

    THEN...you need to get started, the sooner you get going, the faster you learn and the more money you will make down the road.

    There is no magic here, except that you set the foundation for what can be a very lucrative buisness in the future.
