Quickest Way To Make Money

43 replies
I need to know the quickest way I can make money with money. I have a small to average amount to invest and I need to know how I can turn over a profit relatively quick.

What I have tried

I tried the whole Flipping thing with keyword Rich domains, Flippa is way too pricey and is filled with low ballers FAIL

I tried promoting products for an affiliate commission FAIL

I tried to buy products bellow wholesale and selling on ebay and with my own site, it doesn't matter what I bought bellow wholesale their was always someone else online selling the same thing for cheaper. I would buy direct from factorys in China. So now I'm sitting on crap I can't sell but theres guys on ebay who sale thousands of the same product with no problem. FAIL

Now I've seen these auto insurance sites and you pay a company for leads and you get some good revenue that's a possibility but I don't know the details. I'm looking for something that I can pay someone else to do and all I have to do is fund it. I don't have weeks or months to link build to find out something doesn't work. I need something relatively easy and I know theirs got to be something out there for people who have money to turn over a profit

    People are making money from all those methods so there's no reason why you should not be able to.

    How long did you try before you decided you had failed?

    You only fail when you stop trying

      Since 2001, in 10 years I made 7 sales all totaling less than $500

      The only thing online where i did make money was outsource PHP projects but that was a pain in the butt dealing with clients who want unlimited revisions for free.

        No offence -- but if that is all you made, (a) either you didn't try very hard, (b) you have no clue what you are doing (if you 'are' actually doing this full-time), and shouldn't be doing this anyways, *especially* in 10 years (c) you don't have very much business acumen.

        Reading how you are writing, you totally have the wrong attitude, and self sabatoge. (I.e., you actually feel 'good' failing, because then it is an excuse for you not to succeed). Also - while you can "make money" on "auto-pilot", it takes time to get to that point. A lot of people make the mistake of confusing self-employment with running a business.

        If you are 100% sincere in changing your situation, (as opposed to just whining), do this:

        a) Change your mindset. 7 sales in 10 years, IF you have actually put the time in (which I highly doubt), is not a lot. Better than nothing, but not a lot. You actually need to *believe* you can succeed instead of a self pity attitude.

        b) Pick something, and become really good at it, whatever it is. From what you've written, it sounds like you've 'dabbled' in several businesses, but because you didn't make a million in two months like you have heard other people do, just gave up. The people that do make either have been working their butts off the last 10 years, and the media only 'picks up' on it when they strike it rich (giving the 'illusion' that they started 3 months ago with absolutely no experience and magically struck the motherlode) -- or there are actually people that *do* strike it rich without having a clue what they are doing, but that is like winning a lottery ticket. For everyone else, you actually need to work at it.

        c) When you've picked something, 'model' successful people. Don't hang around losers. Hang around the winners. Find out who actually knows what they are doing, talk to them/analyze their business model, and then duplicate it. If you want more sales, make your business better than theirs. Offer extra value. Extra goodies

        d) Then, once you've figured that out and actually have an income stream - THEN you can hire other people to 'streamline' certain processes. I.e., you don't have to reply to techsupport emails. You don't have to do the graphics yourself. You don't have to do a lot of stuff. Figure out what stuff only you can do, and outsource (or hire) the rest. Picture it this way. Instead of you being a sailor on a ship -- you are the captain. You should be 'navigating' the waters, and having everyone else raise the mast, drop the anchor, cook the food, etc, etc. But to be a good captain, or an excellent one, you do have to know how to do all the jobs that you are hiring other people for. So until you get to the point where you *can* be a captain, work your butt off.

        e) And then you'll actually start to see the income come in. Also, figure out exactly how much you want. Do you just want $500/month? $1000? $2000? $5000? $100,000? All of those different income levels require different levels of thinking.

        As for methods to make 'instant' income, if you can write well, that is one. If you can create graphics, that is another. Join some freelancing sites, make a portfolio, show other people what makes you great, and you'll get the work.

    Here's the latest example of my failure I bought a domain name with the keyword.com that get's 70,000 global searches a month in a hot niche on Google. I developed the domain, I got on the first page in yahoo, I get ok traffic but the site is new. I paid for a professional logo, I've seen similar sites with no traffic sell for thousands. My site didn't even make over $250 in bids

    I also have thousands of backlinks and .edu links pointing to the site. I put allot of work getting it started

    I don't get it

    jeez... 10 years! Now that's a long time.

    I can't beleive you've only made 7 sales in that time!

    I think if you spent 10 years focused on one money making method you would be making money by now.

    When I first started trying to make money online I bounced around trying different things for around 6 months & did not make any money at all. Only when I completely focused all my efforts on one method did I then become successful.

    In the last 6 months I've made 791 sales.

    You need to focus on one method & put your heart & soul into making it work!

      Which money making effort did you try and succeed with? Is it a digital product? I've spent years promoting some niche products using article marketing, SEO, PPC, blog commenting, bookmarkting etc and I get lots of traffic and clicks but 0 conversions. I'm talking about thousands of clicks

      So i do find something and stick with it.

      I had a site that got over 100,000 views per day and the whole life of the site I made 30 dollars in adsense and one affiliate sale for $7 I never reached the threshhold for payout on both and never got paid. I spent over a year focusing on that project.

      I made an info product once and sold is for $17 made a few sales and then one day like flipping a switch I got 0 sales and that's been 3 years since I made a sale and I still actively promote it. I thought maybe my buy now links weren't working so I bought the product myself and it worked so that was a mystery why my sales stopped over night. Right after I started getting sales I thought wow I finally found a money maker so I spent thousands of dollars optimizing the site, getting tons of traffic and all that effort was for nothing I never received another sale after I promoted the hell out of it

        I don't know that there is a quick way to just start making money. I went through a few failures before I started making money. Take what you learned from those failures and do it again differently until it works.

        It really depends on what you are already good at doing. I personally have has success with SEO and ranking websites for hi volume search terms.

        What niche was that in? It would be a challenge to have that kind of traffic and make no money. How did you try to monetize it? Did you build any kind of list, sell display ads, Adsense ads, or do any affiliate marketing? Please, do tell me more.

          I had a micro niche alternative non nude modeling web site. Kind of like Maxim style photography but for alternative models. It was very popular but it was not a money maker. I had banners going to adult alternative sites. Everything on that site was targeted towards that crowd of people

            Honestly, every one and their brother can get photos and videos like that for free on the Internet. I have no clue how on earth pay adult sites still exist with certain free sites topping the US Alexa charts. Plus if you were giving them photos for free they'd have very little incentive to pay for the photos on an adult website (Why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free?)

            You might have been better off trying to offer "male enhancement" products or a dating guide on the same site, especially if it was targeted with something like, "How To Attract Alternative Girls". Tattoo designs is another niche that might do well on a site like that.

      IM is all about focusing and getting to work. There are so many ways you can make money online it's just crazy.

      One reason people don't make money online is because they over think it and don't do the work.

      The other is that they have not learned what needs to be done, spend too much time on a "dead horse" and don't know when to walk away and start over. Not every project is going to make money. Or they just jump from on thing to another.

      There are so many talented people on this forum that offer great services where they walk you through the process to make money. If I were you I would certainly start talking to people and seek out someone like this, buy their product and then work it, make some cash and then learn another.

    Fastest way to start making money, kind of depends on what you mean by "Quickest" it all depends on the method you use. Really you just got to find a way to get as many targeted and warm eyeballs on a offer as you can.

    So traffic method + right funnel system (Pre-sell Page) = Profits.

  • I don't see how you could have 100,000 views a day and NOT make money. Without even doing anything else! Something is definitely not right with that picture. I think maybe we're missing some details here?

    Okay, well, since you're apparently good at driving traffic, outsource yourself to drive traffic to others, and let them make the sales. Or offer to do it for a percentage of the sales. Just tell 'em, "If I don't drive a lot of traffic to your site, you don't make a lot of sales, which means I don't make a lot of money. That's a real high incentive for me."

    Heck, I've got 20 more affiliate-based sites to launch within the next few months, and I would make that deal with you.

  • Hi Dave. I recommend the plan below. These are fundamentally what my wife and I did to build our company from scratch, directly from the ground up, and now we're running it from the top down: A $10K++/Mo-Net-Profit and $200K-Asset ICT (Information & Communications Technology) company ==>> Here's the thread of our startup story <<== We started:

    Without startup money. Without an office. Without employees. Without a website. Without target keywords. Without top Google SE rankings. Without backlinks. Without a business email. Without a blog. And: Without eyesight -- Have been totally blind for more than 7 years now:

    •Specialize•

    †Identify your specialized expertise in profitable industries, sub industries and subject areas...
    †Pinpoint your specialized expertise only a few people around the world can do...
    †Determine your expertise in other profitable industries, sub industries and subject areas which you can combine with your previously pinpointed specialized expertise to make you a more beneficial asset for corporations operating in those profitable industries, sub industries and subject areas...

    †Select the specialized industries, sub industries and subject areas where your specialized expertise is seen as an enormously valuable asset by corporations operating in those industries...
    †Pinpoint corporations in your current list at this point that have launched new products and are implementing online search and social media marketing campaigns for their product launch...

    ==>> With the current state of the global economy: If there's money being spent --- It's the annual marketing budgets of corporations that need to sell more products to consumers buying less than usual, by formulating creative concepts and strategic campaigns, then implementing those campaign plans for increasing their sales margins while simultaneously lowering their business operations, product development and advertising overheads...

    NOTE: You can hire qualified people with those expertise, in case you don't want to be the person with the specialized expertise in those profitable industries, sub industries and subject areas...

    •Portfolio Development•

    †Your business portfolio should show the specialized expertise of your business and the benefits you can provide those corporations for their new products and online search and social media marketing campaigns...

    •Business Proposal and Presentation Development•

    †Your business proposal and presentation should in an instant show those corporations the beneficial results your business can constantly give them by increasing their sales margins and lowering their business operations, product development and advertising overheads...

    †Your business proposal and presentation should in an instant inform them about your plans for implementing specific business process development campaigns, online search and social media marketing communications strategies, manpower acquisition and training systems, Q/A and supervisory processes and result monitoring systems, all for the improvement of their sales margins and the reduction of their business operations, product development and advertising overheads...

    •Cold Contacting Those Corporations•

    †Cold contact those corporations and inform them about your portfolio which shows the expertise of your business. Also let them know about your business proposal and presentation which will increase their sales margins for their new products by improving their online search and social media marketing campaign results, all while lowering down their business operations, product development and advertising overheads...

    •Delivering Your Business Proposal and Presentation•

    †Professionally deliver your business proposal and presentation in ways which could most likely make you initially sign up one to two short term contracts with large local and international corporations...

    •Plan and Task Implementation•

    †Your business should properly implement necessary plans and complete required tasks for increasing the effectiveness of the online search and social media marketing campaigns of those corporations for their new products...

    †Your business should provide beneficial results such as increased sales margins and lowered down business operations, product development and advertising overheads for those corporations. Large spikes are difficult to achieve, though gradual sales margin hikes and business operations, product development and advertising overhead cutdowns are doable targets...

    ‡Once you give them value worth more than your prices: You will sign up long term contracts with them, and they'll also refer you to their colleagues, associates and friends working at other corporations. At least that's what one of our blue chip corporate clients did after we helped one of their products become the world's best selling MS Windows System Registry cleaner software of all time in 2007, which had over 10 million products sold last year alone (2010)...

    ‡In my opinion: It will be easier and will produce better results when you build mutually beneficial business partnerships with a handful of large corporate clients, say 10 to 12 large local and international corporate clients at a time, than with many clients. Corporate clients have annual marketing budgets that need to be spent at all cost. Give them the beneficial results they need, and next year's annual marketing budget for your business will be much higher...

    ‡Your business will increase in intrinsic value when you continue to increase the sales margins and reduce the business operations, product development and advertising overheads of your corporate clients by improving the effectiveness of their online search and social media marketing campaign results. You can incorporate your business once you have assets worth $500K and above, in my opinion. Use this $500K of assets and data about the net profit margins of your business for the last 3 (three) years as well as your net profit projections for the next 3 (three) years, clipping your long term contracts with your corporate clients, to show stock investors the value of the 60% stock shares you hold in your corporation and the valuation of those stock shares in the coming years. Inform them that your corporation is selling 20% stock shares to the public and 10% to a private investor. Use the investment funds paid by the 10% private stock investor to buy the remaining 10% stock shares, under somebody else's name. Constantly trade your 10% stock shares by buying public stock shares at times when prices are down then selling them when prices rise. After all: Your business should be running on its own at this point, with you running it from the top down, and since you run your corporation from the top down: You can ethically control the valuation of its stock shares...

    I would say maybe you should start looking at JV. if you are good at getting the traffic and suck and getting the sales, find someone who has the sales and is looking for more traffic and work with them.

    If you have the means to invest then that is what I would look at.

    I have wasted a lot of time trying different things, one thing is for usre.. I don't think there is any real fast way, without knowing what you are doing and buy default that takes time.

    I have been testing every aspect of internet marketing online for over 7 years and made a nice bit of change. The only time when I would stop making money was when I quit a method all together.

    Everything you mentioned above will make money. I would also suggest making a site for your excess product and selling those off of your site. Ebay can get crazy at times. Also, try Craigslist.

    Are you in a Mastermind group? Do you have a Support group of like minded people? If not you need to join one. If you need any help or want to brainstorm give me a ring. I would love to help you make some money.

    First you need to sit down and make a real plan. Having cash to invest is sometimes worse than having none at all. It tends to make you move too quickly. Be a little more patient. Learn from your failures and see how you could make it work.

    When it comes to selling physical products, I would take advantage of the internet. Don't carry any physical inventory. That's how you can avoid getting stuck with crap. Take advantage of dropshipping.

    Learn from your mistakes. If I were you, I would have stayed in the flipping or affiliate arena and learned how to make it work. Be a little more patient and don't let initial failure stop you.

    You say there are too many low ballers, then make smaller, more targeted sites, that these low ballers would buy. Create a template system, where you could easily churn these type of cookie-cutter sites out. This way, you could afford to sell them at a lower price. Just change your business model, from low quantity/high price to high volume/low price.

    Don't expect the market to adapt to you. You must adapt to the market.

    With the money you have you could also commission a programmer to come up with some software or a script that marketers would find useful.

    If you create a product that sells, you could do very well with a little marketing/advertising.

    That's probably the safest way to go. Have a programmer/s create a script, program or website that caters to something specific in the Internet Marketing niche.

      Agree, if you're getting 100,000 views a day, you definitely should be making money. Even if you don't promote a Clickbank product on the site you could do a CPA offer or even sign up with a media buys company that will pay you to have banners on your site or something. I have a site that get 1/200th the traffic and makes around $40 per day.

    I believe that your problem is that you're already setting yourself up for failure mentally. You went into the entire thing thinking that you're offering crap and that others have better products or better pricing, etc.

    It's not about the product and it's not even about the price. It's about how you make the customer feel and how you present the benefits of said products.

    Whether you're affiliate marketing or you're selling products on Ebay, if you provide value you will always win over competitors. And value doesn't just come from the products or the pricing.

    For instance, how is the product presented to the prospect on your site? What sort of user experience are you providing your customers? Do you offer reviews and actual user experience stories?

    If you focus on the above questions and you offer quality, your competition will wonder where all their traffic went.

    When I was 18, I started working for this outside sales company. All of this stuff was imported from China and consisted of anything from stuffed animals to watches to pocket organizers. People thought the stuff was stolen, since we were walking around with bags selling the stuff door to door, but it was actually just wholesale.

    The thing is, this stuff was crap. Walmart had the same stuff and it was cheaper. But you know what? We would use certain techniques to sell out of our merchandise quick. Just a run-down included eye-contact, putting the product in the customer's hand, offering user experience story to put the customer in the mindset of ownership, etc.

    I used to be the top salesman in our office because I was able to make customers smile and I was real good at those above steps. Even people who told me they didn't have money at first would buy my entire stock occasionally. They didn't need it. But I presented it in a way where they had to have it.

    You can literally sell ice to eskimoes. It's all in how you go about it.

    I bet if you went back through all your old online marketing campaigns and you focused on better content, better graphics and the ultimate user experience, you'd be back here before you knew it telling us all how it's done.

    Good luck!

    I don't understand how anyone that can generate decent traffic at 100k can not make a few grand each month.

    It is possible that you are trying to do each and every task yourself instead of leveraging pro's (e.g. copywriter).

      I think thats more my problem jumping from project to project not spending my time building one at a time. I need to stop promoting other peoples stuff and just focus on my own products that's where I've had the most success.

      What I have learned is when your promoting as an affiliate your up against hundreds of other people promoting the exact same product so by the time they decide to buy the last persons affiliate link they click on is the one who's going to get the sale or by the time they decide to buy your cookies will have expired. I also highly doubt cookies really do last for 60 days, I honestly feel that allot of people have there cookies turned off and allot of new browser anti virus software prevents 3rd party sites from tracking someones ip address.

      I'm spending my money now making my own product sites look more professional and I'm adding videos to them and better graphics and sales pages. I've made sales on them without a list and I feel adding the video to the sales pages will drastically improve my sales

      I honestly think that better than building a list would be to have a FB fan page and Twitter account and encourage people to follow you or have them follow you in exchange for an ebook or prize. I know most people hate getting emails from people. Most people wether you care to accept it or not have email account setup for people giving away offers for free products. I always input my email address i never use nor do I ever check, all I'm interested in is the free ebook. I don't want anyone on a list that wanted freebies those people aren't serious about buying anyway they just want free software or an ebook

    Stop spending money and look for ways to make sales without spending anything.

    The fastest way to make money online is by offering services, but there is a fierce competition everywhere.

    Everything basically takes time, effort, patience, testing, and persistence.

    The quickest ways to make money are not the best ways to make money, real money takes time effort, and usually a hefty initial investment. Try and develop and build a business, start looking at things you are good at that other people would pay you for

    What I have tried

    I tried the whole Flipping thing with keyword Rich domains, Flippa is way too pricey and is filled with low ballers FAIL

    I tried promoting products for an affiliate commission FAIL

    I tried to buy products bellow wholesale and selling on ebay and with my own site, it doesn't matter what I bought bellow wholesale their was always someone else online selling the same thing for cheaper. I would buy direct from factorys in China. So now I'm sitting on crap I can't sell but theres guys on ebay who sale thousands of the same product with no problem. FAIL

    Now I've seen these auto insurance sites and you pay a company for leads and you get some good revenue that's a possibility but I don't know the details. I'm looking for something that I can pay someone else to do and all I have to do is fund it. I don't have weeks or months to link build to find out something doesn't work. I need something relatively easy and I know theirs got to be something out there for people who have money to turn over a profit
    There is no quickest way to make money sorry!

    You failed because you did not effective monetize your properties. Having a site with 100k visitors and page 1 ranking then you could have made easy money.
    1. go with affiliate/or own product
    2. if that doesn't work go with CPA offers/offline real world products
    3. if that doesn't work just build a list and try selling there
    4. if that still doesn't work then use buysellads or other ways (paid posts, etc) to make money.
    5. if you still fail then try your luck with adsense, infolinks, etc

    Heck if you still don't make enough money then just monetize with CPM or pop unders. I am pretty sure even a low .5 per 1000 impression would earn you anywhere between $10-100 monthly, assuming you had monthly traffic of 100k.

    One problem i noticed is you built sites for the purpose of selling stuff or the 'site' itself, try without selling stuff and build trust, reputation and loyal customers. Then i am sure you will make way more profits then $500 in 10 years!

      Zero sales from affiliate sites, I've only made sales from my own products. I made 1 sale from my own product web site for $19.95 and it's a site that gets 3 uniques a day in the past month.

      I'm going to gradually pull all affiliate links and do all my own products and services. I honestly don't think theirs any good money in affiliate marketing with all the competition out there

        The fact that you can say that, when so many here are making hugely good livings as affiliate marketers, is why people react to you like this and like this, Dave.

        In case you were wondering.

        It may help you greatly to read that thread slowly and carefully, and instead of simply instinctively arguing with all the advice offered to you by such a plethora of successful, experienced affiliate marketers, think about why we're saying what we're saying, and try to open your mind to the possibility that just maybe there might be something in what we're all telling you, after all.

      That is a little hard to answer, depending on your goals.
      If you just want to make a few bucks a day, Adsense inside Android Apps are great.
      If you want to make alot.. start building your list.. (but this is a slow process)
      Fastest way is selling something of your own (ie: software or content) via a WSO. It works time and time again... The key is to try to offer a very unique product with demand. Demand is key. Start doing research.
