Easy $5 a day as seed money...

45 replies
You know what, you don't have to complicate things. You can easily make $5 online, and after a month you can have your own website, with hosting for a year!

Look at the numbers: $5 x 5 days in a week = $25
$25 x 4 weeks = $100 of extra cash

Is this method glamourous? NO. Is it as exciting as what IM products offer you? NO. Will it bring you money on autopilot? No.

But...

Is it guaranteed to work? YES!

If you don't do it, in 30 days you will still be a dreamer. On the other hand, if you do, you will have made the seed money to start a real business.

DISCLAIMER: I have absolutely no connection, or affiliation, with the sites mentioned in this post. These are just the sites I used when I was short on cash to quickly get back on my feet.

Here is what to do:

1.Sign up to TheContentAuthority. There is a section that has articles to be rewritten. You don't need to do any research on them. Just rewrite them, sentence by sentence. You get $1.65 for a 300 word article. Peanuts? Yes.

But in less than a couple of hours, you would have written 3. That's $4.95. You will often find short, 100 word articles that take less than 10 minutes, to make up the difference.

2. After you have made your seed money, in less than a month, sign up for your Bluehost account.

With your account you get $75 Google Adwords credit to start driving traffic to your site.

Here is the best bit: with Bluehost, you can host unlimited domains.

You can easily create a cheap $97 + $10/month website package, using Wordpress templates.

All you need is 1 (one!) offline client, and your hosting has been paid for! And you've made a little profit.

3. Now, you are a full fledged marketer. Once you make the first sale, force yourself to get the next one. Increase your prices as you understand your market better.

That's it!

Remember, where will you be in 30 days? Still here? Or would you have made some money outside your job?

Don't complicate things. Take action. Even if it means getting into the dirt for a little while.

    Always good to see a workable plan. And for those who think a hundred bucks isn't much: those first dollars generated online are, to many people, the most difficult. Plus, a $100 PayPal money can go a long way if you re-invest it in other online projects, as the OP suggested.

    Now there is a useful post! That's a great resource you've give there (Content Authority) and for anyone who wants to work hard that's a great place to start by the looks of it.

    Now the only downside is that a lot of people want to make money...but....there's the idea (sold in too many WSOs) that you don't have to actually work for it. Making money takes work - simple as.

    Anyways great post - nice to see something this different here!

      Thanks so much, and you're absolutely right.

      What people don't know is that many of the "gurus" still take jobs on the side to make extra cash.

      At the end of the day, money is money.

      Some income will come easier than others, but if you want to be consistent, you need to put in some effort.

      In any case, every guru works hard to maintain that status. Probably harder than everybody else.

      How many people are willing to wake up at 5 every morning, just to work on writing projects, like Dan Kennedy?

          All the best, it's all good man!

          If you are a good (fast) writer, just do the regular orders, you can make more money.

          I talked about the rewrites because they require no research.

          The other options are still worth it though!

    Good motivational post..

    I like where your head is at, in fact I lived something like this.. I started I.M. after I lost 10 houses in Real-estate in 2008-09 I was out of money, and out of income.. I jumped online, and I have been at it ever since re-investing, over and over again.. This just keep paying back, so I keep doing it!

    Go for it, its a great ride!

      Earlier I posted that I don't think this is for me as i am rubbish at writing but I did say my other half is interested.

      Well I decided to take a shot at the aplication to see what they came back with at the end of the day I might get some constructive criticism but decided to have a go even if I doubt this is something I would be able to do.

      So I did my 150 words on the topic they gave me "things to do in san francisco" so will see what happens

      Don't be shy having a go as you never know til you try!

    If you get a topic that you really have no idea about you can simply hit the back button and keep going back and the topic will change each time.

    I managed to get up about 5 different topics and did the least intimidating one to me.

      If I'd known that I sure would have done it. Oh well, at least it was good practice for the paid articles that need to be researched.

      Don't think about it take action

      TheContentAuthority seem a good deal as @ Tier 4 you will get paid $15 and Tier 1 @ $5 (based on a 500 word article) so if you can write you would do better writing than rewriting. Now I can't write so this won't work for me.

      The plus side is the writing service seems reasonable. You would pay $4 for a rewrite and $5 for a basic article. A well researched article will cost you $.05 per word.

      If they have a huge customer base you could make a living from this site.

    That's pretty helpful to know that there are some pretty simple - straight to the point actions you can take to earn a little side money to help with bigger projects.

    This could be practice for rewriting your own articles at a quicker rate. Not to mention you could probably use the service to have the same done for your own personal articles.

        No, that's the cool thing. You just pick the article you want, and then you have 8 hours to complete it.

      Thanks. Great question.

      What I means is, a lot of people are getting into marketing to offline businesses.

      However, they are not skilful enough to provide premium services.

      As an option, all they need to do is to sell a basic web design service. There are gazillions of beautiful WP templates they can easily customize.

      So you sell that as a package. Then you charge them $10 a month for hosting it.

      That way you can provide more value than what you're charging. You'll also find it easier to ask for $97 than for $997 when you're a beginner.

    It's a nice idea in theory, but for many warriors STEP 1 is bad advice. Whether it is wise depends on where you live.

    2 hours work for $4.95 = $2.50 / hour

    Legal minimum wage:
    Australia = USD$15 / hour
    USA = $7.25/hour
    UK = $9/hour

    What about tax? Well you have to pay tax on wages, and you have to pay tax on income from business, so no real difference.

    Sometimes the J.O.B. isn't so bad huh!

    Its a great way for anyone who is desperate to get started making their first dollar online. Yes it takes time and effort but it will pay off and its only a short term stratagy.

    I write content for clients that brings in some regular cash for me which covers all my bills. I can then work on my other ventures such as my Warrior offers, and building websites to bring in aditional income streams.

    Its all about building up and this seems like a great way to do so.
    Great advice for newbies to impliment.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas AdwordsMogul. I am on the article marketing business and have been writing and re- writing articles for my employers for a couple of months now. Probably worth a try since I really have the interest to write some articles or even essays as I am a university faculty by profession. Writing is really what I like to do.
    Making some money online, as what I have been always reminded is not the idea of having an instant money. Patience, hard work and determination will surely helps in attaining the goals.

    Just tried it. They wanted a short article on fly fishing over 150 words. Used Dragon to quickly do it. Now I am just waiting for approval.

    I don't need this as a source of income, but thought it would be a really good way to see if I had any writing skills. Maybe I will make enough to buy coffee at Starbucks

    Sorry my friend the numbers dont add up. People are better off working a part time job, which is also guaranteed to pay (if you do it) and also gets them an earned income credit at the end of the tax year if they have kids.
