If You Had 3 Days To Make Money Online (from scratch) , What Would You Do?

by Pandan
147 replies
Suppose you're broke and need to make some money in 3 days time otherwise hell will break loose...

Your only way to make money would be online because you are in a remote place with no phone, no people to talk to, nothing... just a PC and internet connection.

You need to make at least $50 so you can buy a service that will save your life... The only condition is: you cannot ask people to give/lend you the money, you need to earn it. You're just a normal PC user but not an internet marketer so you don't have list, website or such.

Oh, and you can invest let's say $25 to make it work... as long as your net profit is at least $50.

What would you do?

P.S. Based on some responses I'd like to add that by no means is this a question based on a real need LOL, I just want to get your fantasy going and am curious what you can come up with.

        You just got $4 instead of $5 from fiverr. $5 is what people pay, and $4 is what you got.
        $1 for fiverr itself.

        So you need to sell 13 gigs to reach $5

        Your answer is also what come to my mind first when reading this thread

        Unfortunately, after Fiverr and Paypal fees are subtracted, you'd end up with less than $40.

          Not to mention the holds on payment that could keep your money tied up longer than the three days, defeating the purpose.

          There is a 48 hour hold on payments there after both parties sign off on the work. So with fiverr you essentially have that first day to make it happen.

            I forgot to mention that - I have never been a provider at Fiverr before, but isn't there a 14 day hold on payments there? (correct me if I'm wrong).

            There is actually a 14 day hold on your Fiverr balance, so this simply would not work with the OP's hypothetical scenario, because while it is feasible you'd be able to earn that $50 within 3 days, you wouldn't be able to actually access it until after 14 days.

    Sell my guitar on ebay.

    I'm assuming that I have no money to invest in a domain name and three days is maybe enough time for proper research into a niche. So I'd sell my guitar on ebay, if my life depended on it. Set the buy now at $75 and it would be gone by tomorrow.

    If I was looking to make money without selling my possessions, I'd spend day one creating a presentation, a day to promoting it through my natural market (I know a lot of business owners, managers, and a couple of PR firms that owe me solid favors), and the last day I'd give my best presentation on integrating mobile marketing, social media and reputation management with your current television and print campaigns. I could probably swing a couple thousand in retainers by the end of the Q&A.

      But your guitar got swallowed up by the mysterious remote place shark because you only have a computer with Internet connection left. Fortunately the shark is afraid of mice and stayed away from your computer for obvious reasons.

        Stupid, magic, land shark.... Your best bet then is a service. Do the tedious legwork for someone else. Keyword research or back linking. But, since it is not me providing the service but some nameless "not an internet marketer" do they know how? Don't get me wrong 3 days is enough time to learn the basics and start looking for clients, but it is tight.

    Great question... I suppose burying my head in the sand and pretending that I have 6 months won't help much, huh?

    Okay - 3 days - I like the "provide a service" answer.

    Given that you are in a remote place with only a PC and Internet connection you've probably had a great deal of time to yourself. Time in which you have been writing. Thus you could compile all your writings and sell them as an eBook about "How To Survive Isolation In A Remote Place With Only A PC"

    Get it out to the right audience using social media and you just might be the next Veggie Tales hero though you would have to create your characters out of rocks and sticks rather than a tomato.

      Exactly. I have no idea why people recommend Fiverr. It's way too much hassle for $4. Even if you get jobs, you can only spend 30 minutes doing the job to get even minimum wage in most places in the US. If you factor in the time it takes to set up and maintain your listing and communicate with the client, that really leaves you about 15 minutes to do the actual work to get minimum wage.

      And is it sustainable? Can you get a steady 8 hours of work per day on a regular basis? Probably not. The only chance of getting ahead on Fiverr is by up-selling, but Fiverr is even bad for that because of the type of low-end buyers it attracts.

        People recommend Fiverr because they respond to a hypothetical situation I proposed - by no means is this a question based on a real need LOL, I was just curious what people come up with.

        Fiverr is not that unrealistic... and it doesn't take 30 minutes to deliver your gig (if it does, then it's not worth doing).

        Here is what I might do... I'd first find what's hot and in demand... (checking Google trends, GEKW tool, 43 things, forums and similar). Popular niches like dating, dogs niche... not necessarily the IM niche. This will keep me busy for half a day.

        The rest of the 1st day I'll spend on researching the topic and will put together a 10 page PDF document from information I gathered. I can also check the tradebit.com if there is anything on my topic with PLR for cheap - I don't use it as is but just borrow some ideas. I will think of a catchy title for my product. Then I will write a listing title with care, something like:
        Fresh & Never Before Published! Only 20 available EVER! Secrets To ____. Includes PLR. Yours for $5.

        On the 2nd day I should be ready to list my gig on Fiverr and it's clones like jobsfor10, gigbucks.com etc. Also I will post links to my gig everywhere I can without spamming.

        For the rest of my time I would be responding to requests, sipping my last beer, enjoying every molecule of it, and visualizing a fresh supply coming soon... ;-)

          You are creating a product here, not doing gigs, as others are recommending. Your plan makes far more sense for using Fiverr. However, I still don't think Fiverr has much to offer. It seems to be a place where desperate people go to be exploited by other desperate people.

            Yes... and our hypothetical person is desperate :-). But if our 'hypo' person can make 100 bucks for just 1 day work and the product he/she created gives value to buyers then I wouldn't call it exploitation... maybe a learning curve. Later, once our 'hypo' person discovers it's not so difficult to make a few bucks, he/she could learn how to use autoresponders and build the list etc. In this time frame however, and without credentials, the 'hypo' person could hardly charge hundreds...

            I agree. for the most part fiverr is the slums of the internetz... You are dealing with alot of penny pinchers who expect the world and don't want to pay for it.

            Buuut. with a little ingenuity and craftiness you CAN make bank on fiverr.. but ya just gotta think outside the box and approach it differently than everyone else.

            I've actually made some serious coin on there and did a training video on fiverr here:


            The fiverr treasure chest.

            The secret to fiverr is to offer a KILLER gig.. do something like backlinking.
            Blow people away with the amount of value and your turnaround time on it..

            THEEN

            send them a message right after they leave positive feedback on your profile and are feeling good and satisfied.. Then upsell them on Monthly / bigger packages..

            Ie.

            "BTW, just thought I'd let ya know.. I'm running a special right now for 5,000 backlinks for $30/mo"

            You'd be surprised how many people will take ya up on it

            Think of Fiverr as a LEAD magnet. You are getting extremely qualified BUYER leads... as long as you got an upsell / backend strategy in place.. you can CRUSH It!

              You have some very good advice about people who just take action and don't fret too much over details. I know obsessing over detail and running too many what if scenarios may be keeping me from really doing well.

              As for Fiverr, I had gigs to set up to create Wordpress blogs like you suggested, takes about 10 minutes for me to set up an SEOed blog with plugins. I ended up doing a handful of them in like 6 months. Are you promoting the gigs? I also had someone ask me to set up a complicated plugin with no documentation, and they ended up giving me bad feedback because I said it wouldn't work with another plugin.

              I also set up a gig to do programming, but that was a dumb idea.

              Fiverr is great if you can press a button or deliver a quick report. Anything more than that does not pay. There are also some people that take on expensive jobs and have people on fiverr complete them. It is risky but you can do very well that way.

      People recommend selling your computer because the OP specified you needed $50 to buy a life saving service. You're not looking to build a business, or create an income stream. One time, $50, or die. If your life depends on it, you bite the bullet and go for the sure thing.

      At least the OP put a reasonable amount of money on the "need to earn desperately" - but here's the main problem with this question...

      need to make some money in 3 days time otherwise hell will break loose...
      This furthers the perception many newbies have that "If I need money bad enough - people can tell me where to get it".

      It doesn't work that way. If you know how to earn money - you can earn what you need. If you haven't figured out what to do online to earn money - needing money badly doesn't change a thing.

        There are enough people telling where to get it... so not sure about this one.

        The point is that if you need it badly enough, and also need it quick, you're more likely to be laser focused. You'll not procrastinate, you'll not try to be a perfectionist.

        That "needing it badly" gets you out of your comfort zone, and helps you overcome (often irrational) mental blocks. It makes you to take action.

    I would create a free Fiverr account and search what people need.. Find some guides on how to do those things and then post several gigs on Fiverr.
    I would make that money in about 1-2 weeks...

    For quick buck i would find a good product and promote it on Facebook...

    Last resort would search for an offline job and get my $50 in several days.

    I guess it has to be legal... so spam my friends and family asking to paypal me $1 to help poor timmy that fell into a well is out of question....

    3 days... is a short time... and I have no website nor a list... mmm...

    OK here's what I could do:

    Spend half a day researching any market but IM, then I write a short 10-15 pages report about the niche I choose. And sell it on e-junkie for $5.

    Use the cheapest host and a .info domain and set up a mini sales page. (this is optional if I get cheaper I could set up a squidoo lens or a hubpage)

    Create backlinks to the offer and the mini sales page (commenting on blogs and
    forums with a link to my offer on my sig.)

    Write 10 articles and subscribe them to every article directory that I can posibly find.

    Create free ads to my offer.

    Use $10 on PPV

    Hopefully that way, I can make 15 sales at the end of the 3rd day and recoup my investment and make that $50 profit.

        And if I'm in some remote place, chances are that I'm not getting paid in cash.... so it'd probably be paypal, which would take 3-4 business days to get into my bank account... And even though I bank at Chase, they probably wouldn't have a location in a remote place... so the challenge is pretty much impossible.

          Actually I have both a Paypal credit card and 2Checkout credit card so when I get paid I'm a able to spend the money instantly.

          You should apply with Paypal and get a credit card. That way money is available instantly. You can always transfer money over to your bank account as needed.

          But personally myself, my Paypal money usually stays on Paypal and I just use my card and Clickbank checks and other CPA's, etc, go into my bank account.

    If you're not a member of the War Room, the ebook is $27 which you can get from Allen, myself, or any other former member of the Warrior Alliance. Obviously, though, it should be a no-brainer to grab your War Room membership.

      You can create a "High Profit Business in Less Than 3 Days"

      But will you make money in less than three days?

      No list, no money (only $25).

      Only a PC and an internet connection.

      A complete newbie!!!!!

      This poor fellow will die, for sure, with Allen's ebook.

      You can start a business, and earn $49,000 in 24 hours.

      Starting the business from scratch!

      That was Some Allen's promise. I don't know if you are mentioning the same Allen.

      What he didn't say outright was that the $49,000 came from the e-mailing he did to his over 100,000 subscribers he had from another business and had been for many years growing that list.

      Just trying to see how real your offer is to this particular situation.

      Sincerely,

      Antonios

      Post an add in the warriors for hire section offering to write articles for $1 per 100 words. In order to make 50 dollars you'd only need to write 5,000 words in 3 days.

      While waiting for responses to this ad I would post 5-10 gigs on fiver also for article writing or possibly giving people an ebook. You could easily put one together from various sources on the net for any given subject.

      Go to Twitter and search through the conversations people are having. Identify the ones where people are talking about a specific problem they are having at that moment eg. PC problems, dog barking etc. Reply sympathetically and try to engage in a short conversation saying you have also experienced the same thing but may have the solution. Then subtley refer them to a relevant Clickbank product via your affiliate link that addresses their problem. If you do this, say,a few dozen times a day over 3 days you should make well over the $50 in commissions

        The issue with this is that you will not get the $50 in 3 days.

        But, to offer an alternative. Take all those questions you see commonly asked. Throw the information on how to fix them into a short report. Price it to sell. And then get involved deeply in the community. Just note that you are no longer using an affiliate link, you are using your product link.

        For added juice you could then offer the higher priced ebook solutions as recommended reading in the back of the book, which then can help build your business further.

        Not to take away from your method, it is actually a good way to start. Just had to modify it for the needs of the challenge

          Yes that is a nice tweak. Admittedly the method I outlined would not get you your 50 bucks "in your pocket" so to speak at the end of the 3 days.

      Easy :p

      Although I am still trying to work out how to make a sale in any amount of time, I mean one sale hehe. I am prepared to sit it out, I could make money right away I guess with the following method (just, using a phone since I personally am not stranded in this predicament posed in the first post) but its a line of business I need to learn more about to start doing which is another reason I am not doing this yet...

      In 3 days... how to make a $725 profit from just $25...

      With internet only you could do that thing with the Homestead websites (cost $5 for a domain I think) so potentially you can sell five websites with your $25 :p

      Do some keyword research, the usual - find low competition niches with thousands of monthly searches.

      Then contact (by email) any offline companies you can. This is the hard part because if they have an email addy they have a website already - so you'll have to carefully pick a domain that beats their current domain name, show them monthly searches etc and how a new 3 page website page will boost business. This is like a directory listing except with far more exposure, if done right.

      Sell those 5 websites for $150 each, making $725 profit from $25. Also charge $25 a month "upkeep". This is so if you can amass 400 customers... you could be pulling $10,000 a month from that. You would also have $60,000 made at this point from the initial $150 sales.

      How many sites per day could you set up... who knows, 2 or 3 maybe more. So if you set up 2 a day for a year, you could have 750 customers after 1 year and be pulling in $18,750 a month. Thats $225,000 a year, oooooooh!

      Then fly to Hawaii with your laptop and do it all again.

      Talk about rinse and repeat... there are only so many local businesses local to you, but think outside the box... there's nothing to stop a guy from say Perth, Australia selling a website to a Restaurant in say New York, US - something personal like "restaurant-56th-street-NY.com" etc. When the only criteria is the high volume searches matched with low competition, a genuine service arises out of that. Its still my favourite idea up to now!

        This works very well, and I've used a variation on this strategy before. The actual building of the website is the easy part with this, and the challenging aspect is contacting business owners and negotiating/closing the sale with them.

        This is why you can easily find people to build websites for you for less than $100. The real key to the profits is contacting and dealing with the business owners, and that is what everyone seems to be so afraid of!

    First of all I'd never be in this position; because, well, because, I'm me and enough said

    Second, as someone asked already above, he's was assuming it has to be legal. Well two views on that assumption. First is, it wasn't stated in the original rules so illegal is ok. Second, if my life depends on it, I'm not really worried about legal or not because after all, this is my life I'm talking about here.

    Now, after going through all that, I'm assuming that I'm still me with all my knowledge, which is vary valuable asset on my side by the way, so here is the first, and guaranteed, thing I would do to get my $50 and save my life.

    Being that I'm also a security researcher, I would put up a botnet, which would only take about 24 hours, and rent it out. I would have my $50, plus much more, before the second day sunset.

    Yes, I'm a malware research so I have a collection of malware dating back to about 1998. That includes bots, in source code, and various rootkits for different OS's

    And currently I know about 11 different programming languages but mainly focus on Assembly, C/C++, Ruby, and Python.

      This is too easy. Simply head over to War Room to pick up 5 to 10 free money making plans. Package into one offer. Head back to the WSO thread to sell for $17 each and your life is saved! Oh wait.... you were only looking for $50 not $50,000. Overshot the mark a little, sorry.

      Yup. Had the same idea. I'd just offer whatever online services that people we looking for on a few of the most popular freelance sites and offer my services dirty cheap on the condition that I get paid within so many hours of completion.

      For some reason the idea of being stuck with my back against the wall with only my computer to save me is exciting.

    If you haven't heard of "Cash Crate" or "squishy cash" I would suggest checking them out. I thought it was a scam when I first started, but it is definitely not. It's just advertisers paying you to fill out surveys and try their subscription services (just cancel if you don't want it and you pay nothing) I made $75 in about 15 minutes between the 2 sites. Also, a little tip- use roboform. It's a plugin for your brower. You put in your information once and it fills out every form for you with the click of a button- this is how I was able to accomplish this so fast. Good luck!

      Did you receive your payments?

      Or are there the commissions from your surveying taking on your Cash Crate and Squishy Cash accounts.

      I have had the experience of taking the surveys (not from those sites) and being accredited, but they always had an excuse for not depositing them in my bank account.

      Other times after spending over an hour answering a survey I received a messages informing that I didn't qualify for the survey. That was after answering almost all the survey.

      Then was the time when all excuses were made for not accrediting almost have of the surveys taken or offers (trial offers) not being accepted, the process was enfuriating.

      I don't think this present condition could resist this ordeal.

      Sincerely,

      Antonios

      How friendly are advertisers or the website owners with members that subscribe to many offers but cancel before trial time is up?

      If I offer a trial offer to a prospect my objective is that that prospect is interested in my product and wants to try the product to see if it really does what the ad says.

      I, as an advertiser, don't want "freebie freaks".

      Imagine paying incentives to people that will keep cancelling trial offers before expiration date!

      I would lose thousands of dollars without recap.

      Anyway, it will take more than three weeks (not days) to receive the cash into your online account.

      Sincerely,

    Your only way to make money would be online because you are in a remote place with no phone, no people to talk to, nothing... just a PC and internet connection.

    You need to make at least $50 so you can buy a service that will save your life... The only condition is: you cannot ask people to give/lend you the money, you need to earn it. You're just a normal PC user but not an internet marketer so you don't have list, website or such.

    Oh, and you can invest let's say $25 to make it work... as long as your net profit is at least $50.

    What would you do?

    P.S. Based on some responses I'd like to add that by no means is this a question based on a real need LOL, I just want to get your fantasy going and am curious what you can come up with.
    Since I have only $25 to work with I am going to spend it all on Red Bull so that I can work for 3 days straight without falling asleep.

    Next, I join clickbank and pick 10 products all from different categories that I am going to promote. I am not a numbers guy so I am just going to select products that have good looking sales pages and seem reputable.

    After that I am going to write 1 - 1,000 word article for each product. This is a total of 10,000 words and that will take me roughly 6 hours to do. So now I have 60 hours left assuming that it was a 6 hour trek to find a place that sells red bull and to get back to my remote location.

    Now I am going to use each one of these 1,000 word articles to create a squidoo lens for each one of these products.

    Next is full on writing. I am going to write 5 - 400 word articles for each one of these products. That is 50 articles at 400 words each, so 20,000 more words. We will assume the red bull is kicking in and I can stay on track, so another 10 hours.

    I have 50 hours left and it is time to do some submitting. I am going to spend an hour creating accounts at articlesbase, goarticles, articledashboard, and a handful of other directories that have fast approval times, since I cannot wait the week for EZA to approve my articles.

    So, now I am going to take one of the articles for each product along with a video that fits the niche from youtube. I am going to use these to build hubpages that link to my squidoo lenses and to my products. I will be adding a ton of tags to these hubpages in hopes to create some traffic from them.

    The other 4 articles per product are getting submitted to all the article directories I have signed up with. Between this and the hubpages I am spending another 15 hours on it. So 35 hours left and a red bull break is in order. Time to chug a couple cans and get back to work.

    Now I am going to leave all that alone and I guarantee I will make well over $50 from it, but you did say I need $50 now and clickbank does not pay now. Since I have a paypal account and the people that I have to pay in order to "Save My Life" accept paypal I am headed over to the members-wanting to hire section on the warrior forum.

    I am going to find someone that will pay me to write articles for them. This will take me about 2 hours to find the amount of business I need to make at least $75 since I need to cover my red bull money.

    So, I am going to spend a good 5 hours writing the articles I need to write to make my $75. This will cover the $50 I need, but there is still the consideration of paypal fees. This means I need to write probably 2 more articles to be safe. I will find these and write these with 27 hours to spare.

    Now in those 27 hours I am going to spend 3 hours taking a nap because the red bull was not sugar free (had to take what I could get) so I am having a sugar crash. After my nap and recovering from waking up I have 23.5 hours left.

    Time to do some more writing for my squidoo lenses. I am going to write 2 more articles per site of 400 words each. This is another 20 articles and 8,000 words, so this will take 5 hours to do. This leave me with 17.5 hours and I am going to spend 2.5 hours (partially to get to a good round number) to submit these all over the place.

    15 hours left!!!! (checking my clickbank account and already have a sale for a $35.73 commission from one of my sites)

    Now it is time to hit the forum for some more writing. I got a second order from one of my first clients since my articles were of such high quality and I charged a very competitive price. This time we negotiate a higher rate, but this client needs these articles by the end of the day. Perfect. 1 hour for negotiating through email and getting my 50% deposit for the articles.

    This project is going to take me a bit of time. After I finish I have 4 hours left and I submit the work to my client. He pays me the balance and I now have more profit. I charged him $140 for the project so I have profited $190 since I wrote two extra articles to help cover paypal fees.

    3 hours left after a little rest and time to check clickbank again OH MY two more sales from other sites. Now I am up to 97.43 in earnings from Clickbank.

    Not bad for 3 days in a remote location with 10 small cans (8.4 ounce) and a spotty internet connection.

    I take the last 3 hours to roll around in my virtual money!!!!

    Here is the number one issue with a good chunk of the responses.

    You have 3 days to get the money or you are a goner.

    Affiliate marketing will not pay you that fast, unless you are promoting something a la 7 dollar script or RAP, so that is out.

    From here you are limited to your own product or services as a viable solution, or a combination of both.

    Services would be the quickest solution, though your own product would be a more long term fix.

    I would:

    Start by offering sample articles for a few bucks each. I simply need to make enough money to pay for a WSO, so $15. You should also make sure to ask for testimonials as they would help with the next step.

    From there you need to create a product and price it at a point where people would feel silly to not buy it at that price.

    I would create a decent sized PLR package (20-40 articles on a topic) and offer it up as a WSO for half my normal rates. Having the testimonials from step one to help my reputation as a writer to further sales.

    If I did a 20 pack, it would be a matter of 5 sales to hit that $50. 40 takes that to 3. These are all realistic numbers.

    The big point would be to collect email addresses on the sale so you can make money a bit easier next time around by blasting your list when you release more. Also, making sure to collect more testimonials so I can really crank out the sales from here out.

    The hardest part would be doing the steps to start. I am as guilty as the next person. I have no problem coming up with the plan... the issue is that the plan pays $0 without the work.

    - Pick a niche
    - sort through the net (google,blogs etc) and find what is the most desperate area of that niche that people need general guidance or help with.
    - Use the available information to answer the most sort after questions within that niche (maybe checkout question and answer sites for ideas)
    - create those answers into a pdf format guide to help people
    - Go to squidoo and create a lens that will be your sales page ( just copy the words and layout from some other big marketers salespage to fit your product). Sell it for $17
    - create a buy link that goes to your paypal account.
    - setup a paypal redirect to a page with the download link (free services provide these)
    - search for all the top blogs, websites, twitter, facebook accounts and product owners within that niche.
    - email them all asking for a jv with them to mail a solo ad selling your product to their lists.
    - give them $10 of every sale. You get $7
    - create the solo ad selling your product ( google examples and find a good template relating to your product)
    - create affiliate links for each jv partner.
    - as the sales come in pay each affiliate their share.

    few little tech things to work out but you get the idea. Use the $25 for any accounts needed. Maybe budurl.

    I would think of a service that could be useful to offline, local businesses - something like website design, SEO, traffic generation, social media etc.

    I would take out an ad on Craigslist (and anywhere I could advertise locally for free) and design a flyer, have it photocopied, and then hand the copies out to companies in local business parks. I'd get a lot of doors slammed in my face, but as I only need to get $75 max, just one job should cover it.

    If I had a bit more time, I would approach a local chamber of commerce and see if they would be willing to let be do a JV with them - sending an e-mail to their list in return for a revenue split, that sort of thing.

      Craigslist works really well, and since you'd only need to make $50 per the conditions laid out by the OP, all you'd really have to get is one $50 job to hit the designated target.

      In addition to that, I'd get Skype Unlimited (US & Canada) calling at $2.99 per month, start cold-calling like crazy and offer the services mentioned above. I'm sure that with 3 days of intensive and focused calling, I'd be able to pick up at least 2-3 jobs paying $50 each (comfortably surpassing the OP's target!)

    Here's a way you can make 20 thousand dollars in a couple of days. All legal of course and completey easy to do.
    Day 1: Start hunting for a bargain. Take a few hours to study your local R/E Agents listings to get a feel for prices. For example a standard 3 bed house on a standard block, make that your target and establish what it's currently worth. That's the intrinsic value. This is important to guage accurately. Once you know what this type of house is worth give or take a few thousand, you can now look at individual properties and make allowances. For example a 2 car garage you can add $20,000 Larger backyard? You can add another percentage allowance to come to a final conclusion on the intrinsic value of each property you look at.
    Day 2: Find some genuine property investors on the look out for a good deal. You will approach local investment clubs. There are always cash rich, time poor property investors on the look out for a new investment. You let them know about the house and arrange for them to inspect it. Tell them you will let it go for $180,000
    Being a real estate bird dog is very profitable. You have no overheads. No loans to worry about and certainly no deposits to come up with.

      While I totally agree that being a real estate "bird dog" can be very profitable, the chances of closing a deal and actually having the money in hand after 3 days are virtually nil. It takes time for a real estate transaction to close, and unless you can persuade the investor to give you a cash advance, it's unlikely that you'd be able to actually access any money after 72 hours.

For example a 2 car garage you can add $20,000 Larger backyard? You can add another percentage allowance to come to a final conclusion on the intrinsic value of each property you look at.
      Day 2: Find some genuine property investors on the look out for a good deal. You will approach local investment clubs. There are always cash rich, time poor property investors on the look out for a new investment. You let them know about the house and arrange for them to inspect it. Tell them you will let it go for $180,000
      Being a real estate bird dog is very profitable. You have no overheads. No loans to worry about and certainly no deposits to come up with.
      Have you done this yourself before?

        This is nothing new at all, and is a regular occurrence in the real estate industry. The key is that you really have to go out there and do it, and you cannot be shy about meeting people or talking to them. This is not IM per se (where everything is only done on the computer), but it can definitely help you rake in a pretty large sum of cash very quickly.

          Well I am sure someone is doing it, but, I guess my assumption is you'd have to be pretty lucky to do it your first time in 2 days flat(unless you already have previous contacts and experience in the industry in some form or fashion).

            This is true, you may not get your money in hand within 3 days, but the deal could still be transacted fairly quickly, i.e. it won't take months to get it done. However, there will be times (but probably not with your very first attempt) where you'd be able to get paid within a few short days.

    There's no reason to answer this question hypothetically as I've been in financial crunches before where I HAD to make money in less than 3 days and didn't have a penny to work with.

    And here's 3 techniques I used to overcome it


    #1. Brokering. I literally learned about it.. did it the next day, made $1k.

    Brokering is basically where you go out find someone who provides a service... backlinking, web page design, video creation, etc. Find someone who needs the service. Connect them to each other. Take your cut.

    That simple

    True story. I literally found out about this method, did it the VERY NEXT DAY and made $1k.

    How'd I do it?

    I went on craigslist. I saw someone that needed a webpage designed. I called him up. Told him I could do it, that it would cost like $2k and that I wanted half of the payment upfront.

    He immediately sent payment.

    Then I was like WOW. I hit the jackpot. I just made $1k... but then I realized I had no idea how to do the website and was in way over my head and almost had a panic attack. lol

    But that was when I jumped on Scriptlance/elance, quickly put up an add.. asked someone else if they could do the site.. found someone who did it ALL for $300.
    So I took my $1700, did nothing... and went on my merry little way

    It WORKS. It REALLY is THAT SIMPLE.

    In fact, one of my coaching students who just came out to America without a PENNY to her name.. was sleeping on people's couches and didn't even have a computer.. she went to libraries.. jumped on the computer. found someone who did backlinking for like $30 which was a STEAL.. she then put up a WSO for backlinking.. charged like $300 for it... gave all the jobs to the other person and took her $270 cut for doing nothing each time

    Think she ended up making $1500 her first week... not bad.

    And YES.. it really is that simple.

    I just gave ya GOLD.

    The people who stay broke get caught up on the details while the people that make BANK just go out and do it and get their money

    PS. let me just shut down the biggest excuses ya could come up with that would prevent ya from doing this...

    Excuse #1: "What If The Guy I get to do the work for me.. doesn't do it? Won't I LOSE money and be out of pocket?"

    No.
    NOT TRUE.

    #1 find guys who are GOOD at what they do and have tons of positive testimonials. If they got thousands of satisfied customers.. chances are they won't try to do you dirty

    And let's say ya do end up with someone that tries to "stiff you" and doesn't do the work for ya.... don't pay them.

    I set the terms. I get people to PAY ME in ADVANCE...
    and I generally try to pay out the guys that do the work upon completion

    Or what ya can do is do the brokering thru a secure system like elance that holds the $ until they complete the job.. and if they don't complete the job you can get a refund.

    Excuse #2: "What if the guy STILL flakes on me and doesn't do the work that he is supossed to?"

    Life goes on. Refund the original guy his money. tell him you're swamped and move on to the next job.




    #2. Coaching. I needed to make $5,000 in 24 hours and just lost alot of money on a terrible investment... so was in a crunch.

    I did it. I made exactly $5k in just 24 hours...
    How? COACHING!

    I started to brainstorm on what i could do to quickly come up with $5k.. and started eliminating alot of things like cpa/affiliate marketing since most won't pay you immediately (gotta wait 15-30 days to get paid).

    Then Instead of asking myself what I COULD DO to make money... I started to ask the right questions... What did PEOPLE NEED?
    And what could I provide them with to help that need.

    I realized that alot of people were clueless at this IM stuff.. that direction was a Huge need. I also realized that i know some stuff about IM and that I've also helped alot of people in the past make alot of money online in one way or another...

    so that was when i said hey.. why not do coaching? If I get 10 people to pay me $500... that's $5k


    so then..

    I hunted people down that had already spent money on high ticket products/coaching services etc. (*nudge* People post threads on warrior forum giving reviews/ratings on products that they've purchased... Also you can find WSO's for high ticket products and read the testimonials/comments and look out for the people that have already bought it.

    These are ALL high ticket BUYER leads... just fyi. lol

    Just giving ya ideas... OR

    Why not hunt down the pre-launch pages for BIG TICKET products.. Look for the pre-launch pages.. ya know the ones that post a video and then have THOUSANDS of comments where people are saying "I can't wait to buy this.. tell me where the order link is.. etc.

    These are ALL super qualified leads if I say so myself

    And did ya notice how you not only can see alot of their email addressess.. but with alot of product launches you can click on their pic and get taken to their Facebook page)


    So here's what I did.

    I got ahold of a whole bunch of people.. Looked them up on facebook, skype, instant messaging, etc.

    Then started chatting with them a little bit, and try to get them on the phone... it's real easy actually..

    Just say hey, mind if I call ya.. My fingers are gonna go numb from all this dang typing. lol. or say that you're stepping out for a second, and ask for their #, so you can continue talkin with them.. etc.

    and here's the Real Secret.
    Once you start talking with these people...

    Make it 100% ABOUT THEM.

    I kept asking them what they were doing... what they were struggling with.. what their biggest problems were.. and then offered the best advice/tips that I could.. for FREE

    *Gasp*

    I didn't even talk about myself for a second.. instead, I just kept giving and giving..
    I never pitched them for a second..

    You will be AMAZED at how completely clueless most people are. If all you know how to do is write a few articles, or if you know a cool little tool that you use for backlinking, or if all you know how to do is create a standard wordpress theme..

    Chances are you know ALOT more then them.. and if you share any of that with them you will BLOW THEIR MIND and will be their savior.

    then once you've helped them out.. they are gonna want to know about you.. what you're doing, etc.

    So, this is the part where you could just casually say hey.. right now I'm actually doing a coaching program where I will work 1 on 1 with ya for $XXXX... I've already got some of the spots filled, only have X spots left..

    Let me know if you're interested.

    It's that simple.

    If you've made the conversation about THEM.. and proven to them that you actually care... and genuinely want to help them out and haven't asked for anything in return...

    The next thing they will say to you is "Where do I send the Money?"

    Trust me. It works.

    In fact this method works so well that out of 12 People I talked to that day, 10 of them immediately send me $500... and I made $5,000.

    And the other 2 wanted to do coaching but didn't have the $$ available.

    So if that's not a freakin' amazing conversion rate... I don't know what is. lol


    And again.. you do NOT have to be some GURU to do coaching. In fact, I had only been doing IM for a few months when I first offered it. I was a newbie back then... but I had real results and the difference was that I actually cared about the people... and was willing to do whatever I could to help 'em out.

    And out of that original 10.. I ended up coaching 4 guys that went on to be big name super affilaites.. 1 guy that's had the #1 product for weight loss, etc.

    AAAND..

    another one of my coaching students who was absolutely clueless a few months ago..
    but just recently started making some money online.. helped out 1 of her friends make her first few sales online.. and decided that she'd do coaching too.
    She was nervous. She was scared. But she went out there and did it.. She got some coaching students...

    Then messaged me the next day and said... WOW! This is so much easier than I thought.. and went on to tell me how completely clueless most people were.. and how it actually turns out she knew alot more then she thought

    There ya go.


    oh yeah and #3 - you could offer your own services too. that works. but I guess that's already been mentioned. lol

    Jarrett:

    Let me quote a portion of your answer in that thread.

    "In fact, one of my coaching students who just came out to America without a PENNY to her name.. was sleeping on people's couches and didn't even have a computer.. she went to libraries.. jumped on the computer. found someone who did backlinking for like $30 which was a STEAL.. she then put up a WSO for backlinking.. charged like $300 for it... gave all the jobs to the other person and took her $270 cut for doing nothing each time."

    My question is what year was this and how does she know about back linking services and what to write about in an wso, not to mention adding links. She is not even from the country. Is english a first language for her? Do she write english? Did you basically hold her hand through the process? She would not even would have been reputable on WF to been taking serious to make sales on WF. You must have had a serious hand in helping her succeed. Did you vouch for her when she started her wso here? Please tell me the whole story of how she was able to do this. I am intrigued.

      Hey Janok! this just happened like 2 weeks ago. The girl is from Germany so she can speak pretty good English...

      But even if her English was terrible.. no bother. You could easily find SOMEONE out there who has decent english to write a quick ad for ya, and do something in exchange.

      About the girl.. she was a complete newbie to IM a few months ago. She recently got one of my products.. Learned some stuff on wordpress etc. Got a site up, started making a few sales.

      She got someone to do backlinking for one of her sites once, so she understood the basics on how backlinking works.

      She then wanted to do something crazy.. so she scrapped together all her money and came to California and was 'couch surfing' and sleeping on people's couches. She had a laptop, but it got stolen before she got here.


      I didn't vouch for her.. I didn't hold her hand through it. I simply explained to her the concept.. and she went out and did it.. and just made over a $1,000 from it this last week. that simple

      Check Craigslist/digital point forum/script lance/elance/wf/ etc.

      1. Find someone who offers a good backlinking package, who has tons of good reviews.

      2. Find Successful backlinking WSO's /warrior services being offered here. Find 5 that have the highest response rate. Use that to get ideas. Put it in your own words.

      3. Post your own WSO. Take Your Cut. 'Nuff Said.
      If he Charges $30... then charge people $60 and take $30 for yourself..
      Or if he charges $50... charge people $200. It's your call.

      If you're worried about credibility or not having a Rep yet.. DON'T BE.
      It's all in your head.

      If you have to, give away 2 or 3 free backlinking packages in exchange for a review (if you gotta pay for the first 2 yourself, just to get it going.. )

      Or if the guy charges you $30... then give it to the first 5 people for WHOLESEALE / $30 each.. and you cut your profit on those, just to get things moving.

    In the middle of no where, with just a pc and internet connection, no people around, etc, etc.

    Firstly, i would build myself shelter. Burn the $25 because i can not spend it, cos no where to spend it, being in the middle of no where. And also, i would throw my pc and internet connection over the cliff. Because if your in the middle of no where, no electricity.

    So, build yourself some shelter, make a spear, go hunting. And if there was a little village or shop. I would sell the spoils of hunting to people. And seeing there is no one about, raw meat - deeeellliiicccccoooouuusssss! Unless i could buy that bloody ebook on making camp fires, sorry - can't, no electricity being in middle of no where. Plus, PC and internet connection been thrown over the nearest cliff. Oops!

    But, honestly, if there was electricity. I would buy that ebook on Survival in the Wilderness. Then, go hunting, right after building that bloody shelter. And got no choice to keep PC, because no printer to print off the ebook.

      This is hilarious! If just about everything is predicated on having electricity, then this poster's scenario couldn't even exist, and we'd pretty much be back in the Stone Age, since we are nowhere near civilization and are out in the wilderness somewhere. We'd have to rely on our wits and survival instincts then, as money would cease to have the meaning we currently attach to it!

      Roger, you might have missed what the OP stated in the beginning - that this scenario occurs in a remote location where there are no people to talk to, and there's no phone service. You might encounter some issues in getting people to come to your little yard sale.

      On a side note. If I had 25 bucks to invest here's what I would do:

      Go on ebay and buy real cheap items and sell them at a higher price (Duh)

      Sell your unique talent on Fiverr for $5 per pop

      Go on elance and be a VA for someone (Even if you charge 2 bucks an hour you could make 50 in slightly more than a day provided you don't sleep lol )

    I would do what I have done hundreds of times.

    Set up a website with an optin page. - few hours.

    Get traffic - 3 days.

    [get traffic - 3 days]

    This is the main area you should be concetrate on. Getting traffic from articles, blog comments, forums, directories, releases, leveraging off others with lists, sydication.... and get as much traffic to your optin page. I love youtube traffic cause its instant and my leads from youtube always convert the best. Its quick, effective and brings in buyers....if you do your keywords right.

    You main aim is building a list, and then giving them cool stuff, and building repore. Once you do this, give them more and more, and even try to get them to contact you one on one. This builds even more repore and shows you are a real person with empathy, and wants to help.

    Then you spend the most of your day, getting more traffic to the optin page. Again building a list is not only critical but manditory.

    Then after the three days, if you have not seen too many sales, you just need to tweak and test copy, headlines, and messages, and you will start to see results, either good or bad, I would spend the next week tweaking and testing, and all the mass traffic you can to your optin page.

    Hope it helps.
