Need advice...$200 in 2 Weeks?

29 replies
Anyone know of a way to make $200 in 2 weeks (Paypal)? Checks are taking a while to come and I need something in my Paypal account in 2 weeks to help out me out. Any suggestions? I am willing to put things on hold and do what I need to do if it will help me get some cash flow in my Paypal account.

    Offer a writing service for $2 an article.

    Write 10 articles a day.

    After 10 days you'll have $200. (and you get weekends off)

    anything that you can do with zero overhead.
    Like what andyhenry said, you can write articles. but if you don't have talent in that area, maybe you can do graphic design or offer other services.
    maybe sell some of your old stuff on ebay.

      Thanks, that is a good idea. I am good at writing it's just that it takes me a while to write articles. 10 articles a day may be hard work for me but if that will help me, I will go ahead and try it.

        For inspiration visit your local library and find some books on a chosen topic.

        Find 10 article subjects in the book that you could create articles about. I find that each chapter will easily provide you with ten 400 - 600 word subjects.

        Read the chapter or the section of your chosen topic, then close the book and write a quick note about what you have just read. Keep writing until you think you have got all of your thoughts down. Don't worry about grammar etc at this stage.

        Once you have written it, re-write it, correcting any mistakes and make it flow.

        It makes the whole process of article writing much easier.

          Thanks for the tip. I was thinking about just selling article packs on topics I know about or don't mind learning more about. For example, each day I would create 2 article packs (5 articles each) on 2 different topics until I have a total of 20 article packs. I would then sell them at $10 each. How I will sell them is the biggest part as I am not sure which way to go about it and I am not too sure which topics people are interested in buying.

        In that case, up your price to $4 for a 500-word article and write 5 articles a day. It shouldn't take you more than 7-8 hours at max to produce very good quality articles, and I mean premium-quality stuff.

        Start finding buyers at DP (doesn't cost you money to open a service offering thread). Then, once you've made your $200 and maybe an additional 20 bucks, come back here... Open a new service offering thread here. And then, it's time to rock.

          Thanks, I may just try that. Writing 5 high quality 500 word articles seem to be a better idea.

        I will be your first customer if you can provide me with 5 quality 500 word articles. You don't have to get them to me in 1 day, but, like you said above, you want to make $200 in 2 weeks. So, obviously, the quicker the better, right?

        I would only ask to see a few samples first. If you don't have any - we could work something out.

        Let me know.

        Writing is one of those skills that takes practise and for anyone else reading this thread writing two articles a day is sixty a month and after that tiem writing will be easier. After two months it will be a doddle

    booorrring... Get me a client needing some website design/development and I will give you $200.

    As for the writing, I do not see the point of writing for anything less than $15/article with a 10 article min. What's the point??? if you can do articles comfortably for $2 per, start a blog and throw some adsense on... that way you will make $2 per aricle over and over every month.

    Quit wasting your money! If you need a website, get me to do it right! I'll probably even do it for less! Design/Development/Software, I'm your guy! matt@snidge.com

      I see what you are saying but you may be missing the point. I am making money with Adsense (Not that much though). Actually I received my Adsense check 2 days ago. My point is that these checks take a while to arrive and my next check isn't going to arrive until late this month. I need to earn some money before then in my Paypal account for instant access.

    You should get the direct deposit!

    I keep forgetting I setup the direct deposit and then wonder why I have so much money in my bank account all of a sudden.

    Let me think of something you can do. I know I have been in a tight spot before, but always found a way out. I'll think about it.

    Andy gave it to you straight, but play with his idea
    a little bit. What other services can you provide?

    I could almost guarantee the right WSO will make
    you more than $200 and in one day not 2 weeks.

    Backlinks
    Writing
    Blog Installs
    Design
    Coaching
    Website Transfers (after they flip their site)
    and so much more

    Think about things warriors are doing daily
    and what parts of it you can do for them
    and then offer it as a service in a WSO for
    a fair (but not low) price.

    You've got everything you need right within
    yourself, don't let the showboats make you
    feel otherwise.

      You know I have everything ready to go and even got up $20 in my paypal to pay for the WSO but I am not a full member warrior so I found out today that I needed to become a full member before posting the WSO (Boy why don't I think of these kinds of things first) $37 more that I need now. I'm thinking about just leaving it at that and making some cash in the real world. WF is the only place I know where I can sell the articles in a short amount of time. What a bummer but thanks everyone for your suggestions. I almost could have went through with this.

        If you need the money within 2 weeks, get some freelance work. The other options (setting an IM campaign, etc) may take longer than that till you earn that amount.

        What about the Warriors for Hire section? Do you need to be a full member to post in there? Whenever I run my ad I get enough orders in a few days to last me all month!

    Sorry to take a contrary view, but if I really had to have $200 at the end of next week and did not yet know how to make money online I would do something offline, for example a local business website or even bar work.

    You will find great help on this forum with the online work but none of the routes will guarantee your $200 in the time frame that you are looking at.

      Cool idea but Craigslist is tricky and they are catching on to Internet marketers tactics

      You know I actually agree somewhat on this. I do know how to make money online but I don't know how to put a bunch of money in my paypal fast as I don't work with any networks that pay this way sadly.". Offline work......um nah.

      Thanks for the suggestion.

      Everyone thanks. Fortunately I made enough through Clickbank where I will be receiving a check earlier than I thought so with what I have done so far combined with my Clickbank check, I'm all good. Such a great bunch of helpful people here.

    Selling your skill as a service is sometimes viewed as a good place to start in generating results, including money as a result.
