I tried my hand at Amazon.. and actually this is the only thing working for me.. 12 sites.. 1 of them is making money. The rest need to get to page 1 and may be a decent income will start happening.
But here's the kicker.. everyday my bank account is being overdrawn.. bills are hitting it and I have no other form of income to stop the bleeding. In hind sight had the adsense still been cranking full pace.. this would be a none issue, bills would be covered.
I've been brain storming ideas. Here's some I came up with and I am really hoping you all can give me some advice as to what I can do RIGHT now to start getting some kind of income in.. remember I have no cash, I can't by any link building services, can't even buy an EMD to build a site on.
1.) Flip sites on flippa - only problem there.. is they have a listing fee of $20..
2.) Keep on blog commenting, social bookmarking and distributing articles until those Amazon sites peak.. this won't happen over night, could be another 30 days away or more.. which means payment from Amazon is way out there..
3.) Thought about writing for pay.. but writing is difficult for me.. although I am forcing myself to do it so I can get backlinks and add content to the amazon sites.. but it takes me literally all day to get 2-3 out of my head.. so its a slow go.
4.) I thought about building small sniper sites to make some clickbank sales.. again ran into that whole not having cash to buy an emd or any domain for that matter
5.) I've put 10 resume's out, 1 response, then they disappeared... even a follow up email didn't get them back into the conversation. I've applied to jobs on Odesk, nothing yet..
6.) I can build sites like no ones business.. wordpress is a breeze for me.. on page SEO I can do in my sleep.. backlinking is the bane of my existence, but I can do it.. But I have to do most of it manually, can't afford High PR networks etc.,
There ya have it... my plea for any other ideas that don't cost money.. that I can use tonight to make cash or by the end of the weekend.. As I mentioned before, I am trying to figure out a way to first stop the "bleeding" of bank penalty payments.. I have some food in the fridge, so no worries there.. heck I am even losing some weight by not eating too much LOL, seems by default I have found a diet that works.. just limit your food intake and run 1 mile a day and the lbs fall off, at least for me they do.
In all seriousness, running keeps the stress of this situation away, so I think I will keep at that during this period of being cash poor.
Alright.. back to searching the WF for a glimmer of hope. Who knows.. maybe next week I will get a call back on the whole job search and that will solve a few problems and get me back in the game, but right at this moment, I have to assume the job market sucks and short of bagging groceries, I have to come up with another may to make some money asap. And just in case you wondering.. yes, I do plan to go to town in the AM and visit all the grocery stores and put in an application, can't hurt right.
