I need to earn $5000 asap

by jackie1982 102 replies
Hi Guys, just got to this wonderful forum and have a few questions as I am new to marketing on the internet.

I need to earn $5000 as quickly as possible so that I and my husband can have IVF so that we can have our first child.

I am completely new to all this, but I am looking for some ideas to get me started and also some opinions on how long it will take me to earn around $5000.

I am open and willing to learn so please share your experience and knowledge with me.



Thanks for reading.

    Thats nice you have a goal but earning that amount "quickly" doesn't happen to newbies.
    You have a lot to learn - read lots and don't spend your money on products that tell you that you will earn $XXX tonight doing 5 min of work.
    It doesn't work that way. In fact don't spend your money on any ebooks and such until you have taken several days to read through the forum.

    When you are starting from square one - like you - it can take several months or not at all to earn money.
    There are plenty of people on this forum who have been "doing it for months" and haven't earned anything.

    Well I wish you all the best luck in the world, but I think unless you have some specific skills or some knowledge of IM you might struggle to make that $5000 any time soon!

    How soon are you looking to make it? How far have you got in your online exploration? Do you have a site? Have you made your first $100 yet?

    I'm not meaning to sound negative, but if you don't already know it some people struggle for years trying to make money online, so you and your husband might need a plan B to see you through.

    That said though, some people hit the ground running and never look back.

    Good luck

    Hi Jackie welcome to the Forum. Earning $5,000 is not all that hard but if you are looking for it to happen overnight your chances would be better playing the lotto.

    Internet Marketing, E-Commerce, Affiliate Marketing, Niche Marketing, etc.. are all businesses that require skills, knowledge, and experience. Selling products and services online is like one huge industry with different sub specialtys like ebook authors, software creators, web designers, graphic designers, copywriters, programmers, and the list could go on and on.

    My advice to you is to create a small business plan based on what kind of product or service you want to provide. Do you want to sell digital products, physical products, create websites, etc.. After you decide what you want to do then do some research to see if their is a market for what you are offering. You can do research by searching for your niche on google, using google's free keyword tool, or sign up for wordtrackers free trial. There are hundreds of different ways to research on the internet. Don't shy away from competition, it's a good thing it lets you know that there is a demand, if you don't find any competition then there is proabably not a profitable market.

    The way most people start out is by selling someone elses proven product or service as an affiliate. You can find affiliate products at clickbank, paydotcom, commision junction, and amazon.

    To learn how to promote affiliate products you don't need to purchase anything there are several really good affiliate courses that are free. In fact I would be happy to give you a really good one no strings attached. You can e-mail me at gcjmarkets@aol.com if you want it if not thats fine too.

    I hope this helps

    I would suggest you take inventory of your skills,passions and local community contacts.

    you know people all ready who need to be online or have their website maximized...so just go talk to them and tell em you are starting out your business and want to help , so will do it cheaply .

    read the thread of john spangler...use it for a guide. There are several good warriors here who will help you get going . pm me for some names if you wish .

    also use your family contacts, your husbands etc....the doc, lawyer. plumber, roofing guy, concrete guy anyone who knows anyone ...and particularily anyone you PAY every month ...insurrance, lawn care, etc.

    then there is your church and it membership ...so you have a lot of people to contact..and help .

    as a guide you canuse the figures from the thread mentioned, but normally a nominal charge of say 5-700 so some minor tweaking is quick and easy ...warriors around here will do the work for you for less than half of that ...and you are off to the races.

    good forunes to you

      Yeah, it would really take some time to earn money over internet, lot of things to learn and information to dig in to best get more profit to your site. You can try affiliate marketing, though to help earn commissions through referrals, there's a lot out there that can help you earn like, Linkshare, which offers a lot of options for you to gain money. And Google Adsense is also quite popular, but as I've learn, they don't allow access to new sites that instantly. Personally, it had taken me like, 90 days to add Google Adsense to my site.

        All you need to do is jump on the back of product launches that have a huge buzz around them.

        - use Adwords and this forum to get leads.
        - offer a huge damn bonus.

    There is only one way an absolute NOOB can make money that fast...

    Article Marketing of affiliate products

    You'll have to write about 30 articles a day but it'll work. Pick 5 products and write 6 articles a day on each one. Be sure and do some keyword research.

    With a little practice, you can write about 4 articles an hour so 30 in a day isn't that tough - of course - it'll be work.

    For a total newbie - that's about the only way that you can do it.

    If you have a timeframe of about 1 month then you can EASILY do this. Purchase a very exclusive PLR package and then revamp the ENTIRE thing (name, graphics and price). Buy a catchy domain name for the product, slam up the sales page and then list the entire product in Clickbank. Then visit a joint venture broker and ask him to put you in touch with some average joint venture partners. Give them 60% of the product price. Then go out and promote the heck out of the product OR just buy adspace on a few sites and blogs as well as outsource article creation and submission (it can be done cheap nowadays) Then REPEAT the process with a new product as fast as you can.

      I like how RGallowitz always gives hardcore advice that's really simple and easy to understand.

      Do not underestimate the simplicity of this advice... it really is that simple.

      jackie1982,

      Do not listen to anyone that tells you that you can't make $5,000 as a newbie in 1 month... it's false information.

      Truth is--you can make more...

      Never... I repeat... never let anyone tell you what you can't do.

      You are in total control of your success... good luck!

        Do you have any recommendations for JV Brokers? I haven't used JV Brokers before.... When you say 60% of the product price, I'm not sure how that works. Are you giving the broker 60%, or the affiliates? And how does that correlate with the CB product commission?

        If you DO get $5000 quickly, all I have to say is PLEASE post exactly how you did it here! Or better yet (for you), create a WSO about it and you'll probably double that amount.

        A few months ago I told myself I needed a new laptop and needed to come up with $600. I gave myself a week. I created a couple of WSOs and by the end of that week I had my $600. Don't THINK too much - just DO. You'll waste a day reading this thread which could have been used to write 30 or 50 articles.

        Take action.

        I agree and I disagree with almost every post so far on this thread.

        I have been designing sites for almost 7 years now. It isn't as easy as it seems believe me. There is always another designer that will do the same job cheaper. And those little 1 page sites you are referring too - they are called Internet Business Cards not websites. I've done them and believe me I would love for you to show me someone that will pay even $200 for one of em! They generally sell for $75-150.

        I would say find your niche, whatever you really have a passion for and then find a way to work that into an online opportunity. Be it writing articles, or marketing affiliate products. You absolutely MUST have a familiarity with what you are working with and a driving passion to pass your knowledge on to others.

        Having a goal of Selling 100 articles is much more doable than a goal of making $5000. At least to me it would be.

        In any case I wish you all the luck in the world. and my biggest piece of advice is RESEARCH - RESEARCH and then RESEARCH AGAIN...

    You're pulling my leg aren't you Thomas?

    For someone who is new to all this? You are going to suggest she go out and sell ONE page websites (which are useless for a business - in my opinion)

    Someone who doesn't know how to create a website and is new to all this stuff?
    Next you are going to tell her to outsource it all - right?

    That means there will be another person who doesn't know anything about online marketing trying to sell to someone else who doesn't know anything about having a website...

    Can we not advise her to start with the basics and build for herself before telling her what "great money" she can make building for others?

    Besides if it were that easy - especially for a newbie then everyone would be doing it

      Debbie, it doesn't matter what your opinion is, it only matters what the companies value of your website or service is.

      Look, you have a lot of people talking about selling $150.00 a month autoresponders services. I am sure you don't think it is worth that much but many people do. People are either too busy or not interested in learning.

      Same as for a lot of the info sold in ebooks. You can learn all that on the internet so why do people purchase ebooks. Time is valuable.

      Yes, it is easier and that is why you see all the offline threads on here. So there are a lot of people doing it.

      She can hire someone to create the website. She can also cut down the cost by purchasing a premade template and give it to someone to edit. Heck, high school students could do what she needs done.

      She doesn't need to know how to create a website.

      She can then go online or open up the yellow pages to get a list of people and mail them a postcard or just drive and drop off a flyer with the website address.

      People like to make things a lot harder than they have to on here simply because they can sell a info product on it.

      I can guarantee this will be faster than what you will tell her.

      At least Don stated a plan. You didn't offer any type of plan on here but was pretty rude to Don on his.

      So let's hear your plan for fast money.


      Also, she didn't ask for a IM business but quick cash. You seem to want to get her into some type of business when all she asked was for quick cash.

        Thats true but as someone who sells to offline businesses I field all types of questions like will I have to do PPC or will people be able to find my website. I don't do single page websites - oops sorry I've done one. The guy had one product to sell. For the most part professional businesses like dentists and doctors want more than one page.

        Where I have a problem with the advice that was given is the OP is a newbie. You have someone who doesn't know about SEO, page construction, privacy policies, - all sorts of things selling a website to a professional or even just another business. I don't know about you but the professionals I deal with aren't stupid - they want answers.
        I don't think its fair to suggest to a newbie to dive into this type of money making venture if they don't have the knowledge to back it up.

        What is she going to say when the client asks for help with keywords and search engines - "oh wait I need to contact my outsource partner before I can answer that question"

        2nd - I don't consider this to be "quick money". You are exchanging a service for funds. This means that after you convince the store owner or professional to buy your service or website, you still have to sit down with them and discuss function, colors, content, all sorts of things. Sure you can outsource the build but YOU are the one who has to collect the information and then relay that to the person building the website. You might be able to get it done in a week or it might take a couple weeks. It all depends on how fussy your client is and how much they want to change.

        Once again I don't think this is territory that a newbie should be in. AND I don't consider it "quick money" - it has string attached and usually involves an ongoing relationship with the client.

        Look, you have a lot of people talking about selling $150.00 a month autoresponders services. I am sure you don't think it is worth that much but many people do. People are either too busy or not interested in learning.
        I don't have a problem with this. It's what I charge. In fact my typical websites are in the $3,000 - $6,000 range. I'm not disputing the fact that people pay good money to have their websites built and get autoresponder services because they are too busy or not interested in learning.
        I'm a big fan of people doing what they are good at and hiring the project done if they don't know how to do it.
        I just don't think a newbie is the right person for this type of business and I don't think they are capable of outsourcing the project properly.

        I had a client who wanted to get involved with the offline businesses. She saw her Chiropractor 3 times per week. He knew all about her online business and was always asking how he could get involved for his own business. I was her "outsource person" I built her blog, website, forum and store. Even with all the things she knew how to do she still couldn't answer his questions. I ended up talking to him on the phone - thats not what the outsource person is supposed to do. He was her client - she is supposed to find out what he wants and then tell me. It didn't work that way because she didn't know enough to be able to counsel him on what would work good for his business. I had to do it.
        Based on that experience I believe my client had no business trying to sell online services to offline businesses - obviously its not her thing.

        Same as for a lot of the info sold in ebooks. You can learn all that on the internet so why do people purchase ebooks. Time is valuable.

        Yes, it is easier and that is why you see all the offline threads on here. So there are a lot of people doing it.
        Yes there are a lot of people doing it. Let me tell you another example of a guy who contacted me shortly after the Cash Cow thread was started (I participated in that too - I think its great - but not for everyone)
        This guy first started out trying to sell a website to a brick and mortar vitamin store. After they talked a while then the store owner thought it would be great to have an online store as well. So, this guy contacts me and we chat online for a long time - he wants to know what I charge to build the store, etc because he needs to give a price to the store owner. I tell him and we talk about the store components because this guy knows NOTHING. He has his meeting with the store owner. The guy comes back to me all excited because he feels the store owner wants to do this thing now - but the store owner has questions - would I mind calling him and answering his questions. I said sure.
        The store owner didn't want to spend the money and said maybe next year. So this same guy finds a lawyer who has a web site and offers the autoreponder service deal etc. The lawyer wants to do more with the website. It doesn't rank well in the search engines. He wants to hire some SEO done.
        The guy comes back to me and asks me, do I do SEO and would I look at the site etc. Sure no problem. He goes back to the lawyer and guess what - no deal.
        This guy was busting his butt and hustling the deals but couldn't close a sale.
        The offline sales thing is not for everyone - I don't think its appropriate for a newbie

        She can hire someone to create the website. She can also cut down the cost by purchasing a premade template and give it to someone to edit. Heck, high school students could do what she needs done.

        She doesn't need to know how to create a website.
        Sure she can hire the work done and no she doesn't need to know HOW to make the site but she needs to know what components are necessary. She also needs to know ABOUT websites.
        You can't sell what you don't know.

        She can then go online or open up the yellow pages to get a list of people and mail them a postcard or just drive and drop off a flyer with the website address.
        People generally don't buy on the first contact - so the "quick money" thing is turing into a job already. Once again - not for a newbie
        Ofcourse given the typical time it takes to land an offline sale she could be using that time to learn the stuff she would need to know to make her sales pitch compelling enough for them to take out their check book.

        People like to make things a lot harder than they have to on here simply because they can sell a info product on it.

        I can guarantee this will be faster than what you will tell her.
        It would probably work out to be the same time frame.
        I don't think the words "quick money" and newbie should ever be in the same sentence.
        Once again if it was that easy everyone would be doing it and no one on this forum would complain about not making it in IM.

        At least Don stated a plan. You didn't offer any type of plan on here but was pretty rude to Don on his.
        Don offered a plan that was suitable for someone who is NOT a newbie. Where I had a problem with Don's plan was his hyped up phrases. Every offline business I've dealt with wants their business name as their domain name - thats what makes sense. Not some "Domain Name that will GRAB THEM BY THEIR "GREED GLANDS" AND....SQUEEZE!.... "

        That type of hype does make me puke. I think its insulting and I certainly wouldn't talk to a client like that.


        Also, she didn't as for a IM business but quick cash. You seem to want to get her into some type of business when all she asked was for quick cash.
        I think newbies need to be realistic - "quick cash" is not the norm. Once again if that were the case we wouldn't have seen the many threads that were posted here not long ago from people who were losing their homes or were just broke.
        I think a lot of the people on this forum forget what its like to be a newbie and how much stuff there really is to learn. Stuff that you and I take for granted. I guess I'm more aware of it because I work with a lot of newbies.
        Someone just starting out has a lot to learn. How fast they learn depends on the individual.

        As for the Barf Bags, Don - don't worry you can always use them for your mailings to the offline businesses. Thats a technique that works.

          I was making money online before I even knew about internet marketing. I was selling 2k dollar software when people told me it would be too hard. I sold it anyway because I didn't know any better.

          This is one of the reasons I like younger people because they just do it instead of listening to older people saying you can't.

          Making money can be easy. The problem is people don't concentrate and keep jumping around.

          I disagree with what you said regarding my experiences as a real estate investor. I had people signing over their house with one phone call. I never even met them.

          If she needs seo than she can outsource it as well. She will get paid upfront by the customer.

          If she needs help with ppc then she can outsource that as well. She will get paid upfront by the customer.

          If she is being asked for keywords than she is talking to the wrong people. I don't know many of people that even know about keyword research. I doubt that question will even come up very often if ever.


          It seems a lot of people like to make this more difficult. Maybe it makes them feel more important when they succeed to make it sound more difficult for everyone else starting out. She has the best resource right here. If she needs some help there are plenty of people right here she can hire.

          I am pretty certain Don's plan would work. And I think it would work pretty easily.

          I am still waiting for your plan. New people need to start somewhere, why not this? They learn as they go and I am almost certain they will see money quicker. I hope you won't tell her to start a blog.

          She is talking about only 5k. She isn't talking about 5k every month. Big difference.

          Regardless of how you view Don's post, there isn't any reason to be rude. Don isn't talking to a client on this forum. He is talking to us.

          People could take Don's idea and make a 6 figure business easily. I already have ideas that could make you a nice recurring fee along with a big one time payment.

        She can then go online or open up the yellow pages to get a list of people and mail them a postcard or just drive and drop off a flyer with the website address.
        I notice this from Thomas. It's how we all wants to be doing business right. Far a lot more don't have or will ever work on the mindset enough to get to this level. It's just simply not in their world view.

        It's easy to say to outsource everything, but how many online marketers do actually outsource most of their businesses tasks?

        I believe it boils down to what kinds of "luggages" Jackie has with her, in order to get the $5K in a 4 days or after 10 months.

        Most small companies offline are afraid to outsource, or even use marketing to promote their company.

        She may not even knows the diffrences between squeeze pages and blogs.

        Much less how a well designed web site would look finished.

        You can't expect this much of her unless you knows her personally and her backgrounds.

    You are going to need to identify your passion, get the belief that you can do it, find out if people want it and then outsource your webdesign to a real internet marketer...not just a web designer. It will take focused dedication and consistent action to get the results you want.

    Be careful not to get sucked into buying several internet marketing training packages as you will get sidetracked and overwhelmed quickly.

    There are several resources on this forum so take some time to browse and learn before you dive in. Good Luck

    Jackie,

    First. let me tell you what not to do. Don't run around paying good money for the get rich quick plans. The creator of the plan is the one getting rich and you will never make a dime because you are to busy hopping to the next get rich fix.

    The absolute best way would be to find a mentor and follow them. The problem with that is determining if the mentor is legit or not. Believe it or not some will lead you astray and try to take your money. On this forum you can look at the number of post that a member has, but even that is no guarantee.

    Now for the positive. If you are short on cash, the best way for a new person to get started is by article marketing. Look up the term "Bum Marketing". Also, look for related material on article marketing. It is a lot of work and there are a few tricks to learn, but you can do it and you have little cash to risk.

    Best of luck to you,
    Steve

      Okay. You're new. So let's start with the assumption that you don't know a lot about the IM game.

      And you're passionate about wanting to have children. And you probably know way more than you'd like to about fertility and IVF.

      I'm guessing that it is a very personal and heart-wrenching journey that you and your husband are on.

      Here's my question to you: Are you the only people that are experiencing this challenge? Are there others that you perhaps even know online through forums, chat rooms, etc?

      My suggestion may not make you money as quickly as you might like, but you will be doing something that you are qualified to do... and that is, to talk about your challenges (and successes) with the fertility process.

      Start a blog. Choose your domain name wisely. For starters, you could even use a free blog. And then, simply tell your story. Document your journey in your quest to start your family. You could post and you could also have your husband post - throw in the male perspective.

      Let people in fertility forums and chat rooms know about your new blog. Give away some sort of free report in exchange for an opt-in. Monetize the blog with AdSense. Link to affiliate products - there's a truckload of products on ClickBank if you just type 'fertility' into the Marketplace.

      Later, you can package up all of your experiences and have your own product on ClickBank. And start to use the list that you've built through the opt-in process.

      Just write about what you know. Add different ways to monetize as you go along. Don't underestimate the power of a personal story. You can even put a 'donation' button and you may find yourself with the money you need faster than you think.

      This approach has the added benefit of being able to stay in touch with what you are most passionate about, stay focused on what you most need, and benefit - and be helpful to - the community you are already involved with.

      Don't get bogged down with the details. You could have a free blog with a couple of introductory posts up in the next hour - and work out the rest of it once you get some momentum.

      Good luck with it.

        This is great advice!

        We all have a story to tell and expert knowledge on some subject.

        A personal blog is much more compelling than a run of the mill facts site. At least for many subjects. A well written personal blog will be very helpfull to people in the same situation and they will be more likely to take your advice.

        The only problem is still that for a newbie Google is a tough nut to crack. Your amazing content could be drowned in autoblogs and spammers if you don't know what your doing.

      Hi Jackie,
      Hi Guys, just got to this wonderful forum and have a few questions
      as I am new to marketing on the internet.
      Understanding that you're new to Internet Marketing doesn't tell me what
      you know about Offline Marketing neither does it tell me anything about
      any knowledge that you may possess? Therefore I can't judge your
      knowledge to give you solid advise.

      Don's advise was solid advise if you have the Time, Knowledge
      and Resources available to get it done.

      Debbie's offer to give you a spot in her group was a true Warrior's response.
      If it were me in your situation, I'd jump on that offer!

      Have a Great Day and Good Luck!

    1st - CPA you need free offers of anything.... you choose your niche or category etc but needs to be free (i think).

    2nd - You need a squidoo account to make some lenses.

    Now if you have these two thing you can move on...

    Phase one choose your niche (for example free baby product)

    Now your lense will be in the shopping category (works best) and needs to have a good catchy (longer) title and short url.

    Next you need to add some content (make sure you use an image and text format etc)

    Now time for tag research to get some traffic..... go and search for lense similar to yours.... and literally copy all of their tags (if they are all relevent).... Eventually this will mean that your lense will appear on other peoples lenses in the 'explore related pages section' meaning you get good traffic for free....

    Your lense must be maxed and i suggest you don't have the explore relaed pages addon to your lense as you may loose conversions but its up to you.

    My advice is to FOCUS! Do one thing at a time, if you decide to do something stick with until you're making money THEN look at the next thing.

    YOU CAN DO IT! If you want it enough but you have to FOCUS on one thing.

    Pick one suggestion that has been given to you here and follow through on it

    I personally would find a mentor who sells something or is in a online MLM company and is making money in that MLM company and who also has time to train you.

    Terry Anderson for example, he promotes a product called I Buzz Pro which gives you the opportunity to reach thousands of people in minutes. People call you back after you do a voice broadcast and ask to buy from you! He can show you how to do it for $100 a week and the returns will be swift....!

    But I don't want to sell you, you have enough options here already, just make sure you do something that you'll be able to do with someone that will offer you A LOT OF TRAINING AND SUPPORT.

    It's easy for us we already know all this, but you're new and you'd do well to only do something that you can be walked through, Terry would do this for you, some would say I'm crazy to promote him and not myself but I feel he is a good coach!

    MLM is a good way for a newbie to get free mentoring because for the price it takes to join a cash gifting, carbon copy pro or I Buzz Pro member if you join the right person-I.E One that is making money and willing to share their secrets with you because they know that will make them money too, then you won't have to go through a huge learning curve.

    The right mentor who is making money in their MLM will be able to show you what they did to succeed and with a company like I Buzz Pro or Global Resorts Network you will get paid upfront commissions.

    Trust your gut when you're picking one of these wonderful options everyone has given you, and don't try to reinvent the wheel, pick a strategy suggested on this page read through it a couple of times, think about it and then come back and make your decision.

    I liked the idea that KF had about starting a blog about your experiences, that would be a good idea no matter what you do because personal branding is very important in Internet Marketing, people like to feel like they know you, it makes them trust you and want to work with you:-) And a blog is a GREAT way to get traffic and build a list-your list is your bread and butter...

    You will go far if you trust yourself and follow advice from people that know how to produce results. We could tell you a hundred and one ways to make money online,I think voice broadcasting is the quickest way to make money simply because of the volume of messages you can get out so quickly.

    Put Terry Anderson into youtube if you want to explore that avenue.

    Do what feels right for you, everyone thinks their method, their company is the best! It makes them money! Why wouldn't they?

    Good Luck

    Wow - some of you have been a part of wf for a while, and still don't believe that the money can be fast and easy.

    How's this one for fast and easy. Would you believe a 1 page website less than 3 months old selling for $30,000? It happens.
    Top Clickbank Product Makes $8000/month - Rare Opportunity

    Notice the established date for this website.

    And not only $30k for the sale of the site, but he also made over $20k selling products from this site. That's $50k in 3 months from a 1 page website. Whoodathunkit?

        Hi Jackie...

        Some of the posts in response to your request for help have been very good. However, I am sure that you are overwhelmed if this is all new to you.

        Don's advise is the best to make some substantial income in the shortest time possible. If this is all new to you...you can always outsource the work to others. You can find providers here in this forum or you can go to elance.com and digitalpoint.com.

        Spend some time here and at www.forums.digitalpoint.com. You will find discussions related to internet marketing, search engines including optimization, tools and more.

        I suggest you get familiar with internet related terms.

        Further if you like Don's advise and feel comfortable giving it a shot...send me a PM and I will point you in the right direction. I will tell you where to get everything you will need to get started.

        And you do not need to take a coaching program or read tons of ebooks to do this. And for heaven's sake do not get roped into paying for anything until you decide want you want to focus on. Take this from someone who learned the hard way.

        If you decide that Don's advise is not the way you want to go...still PM me and I will send you some free ebooks on article marketing and other useful information to get you started.

        And lastly...where there is a will...there is a way. Do not let any negative comments stop you from moving forward. It is not easy...but you can do it...if you want to.

        All The Best!

    Don Alm's idea is a good one for a newbie.

    Instead of having to go through a steep learning curve in internet marketing, assuming Jackie knows the basics it is not impossible.

    If jackie is based in the US he/she could do what I would do in these circumstances.

    Find a partner if you don't know about the basics of web creation or hosting in short to handle the technical side. Students would be ideal in these cases. I wouldn't mind sharing revenue if I am a newbie and my plastic is maxed out with a few bills thrown in for good measure. Any money is welcome

    Do a search on yellow pages for the professional categories like the ones mentioned, doctors, lawyers, realeastate agents in short the ones looking for patients, leads, bodies whatever.

    If they dont have websites or domain names offer them a complete package. Take your laptop and show them the benefits of having a website which attracts leads/patients. Take some time to prepare a presentation in powerpoint which is short and to the point.

    Have a prepared speech ready highlighting the benefits of online presence or if they have one already a complete revamp could be offered. Here the benefits of higher google ranking which attracts more visitors could be emphasized.

    Offer them monthly maintenance service agreements i.e. updating the website, handling mail, website optimisation, contact forms etc.,

    Set a realistic price package. Search for competition and get price quotes for the services you are thinking of offering.

    Investment: A phone, a laptop, a hosting account, stationery and a vehicle.

    Attitude: Confident, not afraid of talking face to face, optimistic.

    Time taken to see the moolah: Depends on your followup and delivery of

    goods.

    Yes, it is a tough call for a newbie to do it alone and yes this plan is not perfect but you would be surprised at the results when you just keep at it and gain practical experience. You could finetune your approach, pricing, the package as you meet more people and get to know their expectations and feedback.

    Hey Jackie,

    I was in your shoes not so long ago.. I'd recommend working on your mindset and visualizing the 5,000 dollars coming to you. You don't know how or when but begin to convince yourself it's coming. Mindset is like 90 % of the game. Following through and action are of course important but get yourself in the right mental sphere before any action takes place and you should be led to the place that will lead to 5,000 dollars. Belief is very important so if you have to start with a smaller figure I would do that too. Best of luck and I hope you earn 5,000 dollars very quickly to meet your financial goal.

    Poor Jakie. Of what I've seen in this thread, much of the suggestions are too much to inhale for a newbie. All that's going to happen now is she's being "information overloaded" and will have a hard time getting to do anything at all.

    If you are new to the web and wants to sell stuff. You should start with the basics. Hence, I don't see why members suggests all this complicated build Website stuffs.

    Try to put yourself in her positions. Everyones is shoting differents things, it's leading to confusion.

    That's all I'm saying.

    P.S. Sometimes I gets the impressions folks just wants slug out their advices to these newbies threads just to still their own hunger and cravings to be "into the spotlight". It's like some people here try to actually sell to you from their own opinions and experiences in IM.

        Hi Jackie,

        you don't mention whether you are looking to make this 5k online, offline, or both, but i'd like to share my thoughts with you, based on my experiences over the past year or so since i first started getting into internet marketing.

        First of all let me say that my viewpoint is that of someone who is still very much 'learning' this game, and so i base my opinion mainly on what i see going on, from people i speak to at seminars etc, and i try to put it all together to form my own opinion as to differentiate between the 'real' ways to make money as opposed to the countless scams and 'dream sellers' that seem to litter the internet. Im sure you know the type. I've also learnt a hell of a lot from Russell Brunson in particular.

        So my conclusion from all my observations over the last year or so is that making money offline is as profitable, if not more so in fact, than online marketing, but that to make money quickly then online wins hands down. So let's go with that for now.

        And probably the best way to do that is through affiliate marketing i.e marketing sombody else's ready made product. This means that you don't have to spend time setting up a website and shopping cart, sending out emails etc.

        Now, how do you choose a suitable affiliate program to promote, and one which you can promote quickly? Well, the obvious place to go is clickbank.com, where you can do a search of literally hundreds of ready made products to promote. Many of these products pay you not just for the initial product, but also on other sales that any customer makes further down the line. Pretty cool stuff.

        Now, because there are so many products to choose from, you would be wise to choose one which you felt you knew something about. This will help you when you come to promote it, which i'll discuss in a second. For example, if you knew a lot about exercise or weight loss, you would do well to sign up to promote a weight loss/exercise product.

        Another way to find affiliate programs is to do a google search on that term, but in my opinion going through clickbank is the best place to go, not only for the range of products available, but also the fact that they have such a good reputation for never missing affiliate payments etc. They have been going for over 10 years apparently, and their reputation is pretty solid. Having said that, if you find an affiliate program which is run by an already established big name, who already has a good range of high ticket items in place to offer to people you send his way, then that is definetely a great way to go.

        I'm currently involved in a great new affiliate promotion which is on right now, in the health niche. It involves a lot of high ticket health products, which are promoted automatically on the back end to all traffic that i send to the website - its backed by some major marketers, so conversions are apparently already quite high. (contact me if you want info on this, and i'll email you details)

        I am personally promoting this as a) im a bit of a health nut so its suits me fine :-) and b) i like to promote 'real' products outside of the 'making money' niche. I wouldnt necessarily recommend this program to you though if you didnt have at least a passing interest in health/nutrition, as the more you are interested in a subject, the easier it will be for you to promote it quickly and effectively.

        So lets assume you have chosen a product to promote. You now want to promote that product as quickly as possible, to get it in front of as many people's eyes as you can i.e getting traffic.

        Well there are many ways of doing this, and i'd hardly call myself an expert, but here's some suggestions (some of these are a bit sneaky and i have only learnt them quite recently - drop me an email and i'll tell you where i got these from)

        1) write articles on the subject to submit to article sites. This is where it comes in handy to actually have a passing interest in the subject matter of what you are promoting. Writing a short article is easy if you are interested in the topic. These articles should be about 500 words long, short and educational. Article sites are high ranking sites, and are considered imporant by search engine spiders such as google, mainly because there is so much great content on there, and they are always being added to and updated. Consider writing a handful of articles rather than just one, as it makes you look more of an expert. Now, just as in forums, you wil be able to attach a "signature" or "bio" bo at the end of each article, where you can include a link to the affiliate product that you are promoting.

        These articles not only get picked up by the search engines, but they are also picked up by ezine publishers who come to article sites specifically looking for content like yours to add to their ezines. The good thing is that when these publishers include your article, they also have to include your signature with your link in. The result? Free traffic to your site. Pretty good stuff that.

        2) use comment sniper software - this crafty little thing notifies you immediately every time someone has just made a new post to a blog which is related to your product. You then go straight to that blog and make a useful and complimentary comment about that latest post. It only needs to be a short paragraph or two, but at the end add a "by the way abc might help" or something similar, which of course is a link to your affiliate page. The beauty of doing this is that by posting immediately you get notified of a blog update, you know that your little comment is now going to show up and be seen by all the other subscribers to that blog when they now come to visit. Be surnot to spam here at all i.e blatant advertising, as the blog author will just delete your comment. Say something useful and complimentary, and add a subtle link at the end. Keeps everybody happy.

        3) join communites and forums which relate to the product that you are promoting, and go in and make valuable contributions. As with articles, always include your "bio" or "signature" file, which in your case would lead to your affiliate product of course.

        I would just like to point out of course, in case anybody may criticise me here (!), that ideally of course you should send to traffic to your own squeeze page, to build your list etc, but as we are talking here about trying to get 5k as soon as poss, setting up aa squeeze page may take up time and money, so why not just leverage off a product that is already set up and ready to go, at least in the short term?

        finally, somethign which is very new but s creating a real buzz is Russell Brunson's Micro Continuity Programs - some of his students are making money online is as little as 48 hour from scratch. Well worth looking into if you need to raise 5k as quick as poss. Check my signature file for full details.

        i hope that helps jackie, i could go on a lot more but its 2 in the morning here in the UK and my eyes are shutting down! if you want any more advice feel free to email me or through here. Good luck raising the money, i hope you makie it!
        Andy

        I have actually made $7500 in 24 hours before, but nobody seems to be interested in hearing my system. It doesn't ALWAYS happen in 24 hours. Somtimes it takes a month... but it only requires a few steps and you don't have to be a genius to do it.

        You could easily get started 45 minutes from now with NO experience if you are willing to follow a few very basic steps, and be on your way to making your first 5k.

        Not as exciting as becoming a super affiliate (depending on whether your goal is to be a marketing guru, or JUST MAKE SOME MONEY) but it works and can be done from the internet.

        Why am I sharing this? Because I'm bored, and I feel abundant enough to share info without charging. The world is full of ideas, it's a bottomless well!

        If you wanna hear it... I will post the whole system for you, maybe even coach you through a deal live in front of the whole world!

        Why? Because it sounds exciting!

        If you are willing to make a serious effort you can do it.

        I'm not gonna ramble on and make a 60 minute post unless someone really wants to hear it... no it doesn't cost you a cent. Not 'typical' IM, but IM nonetheless.

        It's called "Brokering Manufacturers Excess Inventory Stock Lot's" TOTALLY over the internet.

        A 12 year old could do it, as long as they know how to use a free yahoo email account to tell people on B2B business sites about their offer.

        Finding something that someone in the US who needs to sell something desperately, and hooking them up with someone from another country who desperately wants to buy it.

        In china for instance U.S. manufacturers have exclusive distributors who monopolize all the name brand U.S. product... so all Chinese retailers have to go through them, because the American manufacturer cant legally sell the 1st line product to anyone else through their own company, but they "can" through me and you because we dont have exclusive contracts with those exclusive distributors...

        They can the 'last years' line of product (usually buy backs or overstock) that has been written off as a loss on the their taxes... making it "Secondary Market Product", for as little as 10 cents on the wholesale dollar, and NEED TO DESPERATELY.

        Perfectly legal, and there's a whole industry built around it called the closeout "export industry". The only difference between me and a regular export guy is that I know how to do it strictly via internet.

        I can sell two or 3 truckloads at a time... to buyers from other countries, where exclusive distributors monopolize, and who want a better deal than being bullied and forced to pay unrealistic prices by the local distributors just because they are the "only game in town".

        Deals can take a few weeks or they can take 24 hours ... I personally make about 5k per month consistently at it... sometimes more.

        PM me if you want some free coaching, maybe we can JV on a deal.

        Actually, anyone who has any ideas about how I can multiply my efforts on this please pm me as well...

        PS. It's even more perfect if you are a husband and wife team!

    I don't want to sound too impolite, but if you need $5000 fast, you should get a normal job, it's certainly faster and easier than building knowledge and a working IM business.

    Most people in this business never make a buck or are spending nearly as much as they are making, I'd guess 95% quit in the first year. This doesn't mean you can't succeed, but it's no easy or make money fast business...don't let all those "guaranteed success" ebooks and marketing talk claiming fast riches fool you. They sell so well because it's a classical desperate buyers niche...but most sellers aren't less desperate.

    Are you kidding me MarQueteer? Making $5000 online per month or even per day is NOT that difficult. You simply have to develop a plan of action and then TAKE ACTION.

    I don't know why so many people get stuck when trying to make money online.
    It's simple, sell something to a market who has a desire!

    But...I need to add this...it's not THAT easy if you start out with zero startup capital. If you have startup capital you can get your first product of the ground so much faster.

    Hey Jackie,

    Here's a little disclaimer which I think will be beneficial to you to know, and I don't mean to shower your enthusiasm, but if you can't swallow this pill, I don't think you're cut out for this, anyway.

    There's going to be exceptions to this, but based on my personal experience and from what I've heard from countless other super success stories online, there seems to be a recurring pattern that seems to be emerging. Albeit, that might be because I can identify with them, and they're all I remember. Nonetheless, I just find it to be an extremely bizarre case of incredible coincidence that so many people have this same basic emerging fable story.

    That is that, many people who've succeeded at this game, I've noticed have failed, and overcome a hugely abnormal amount of trials and tribulations (way above and beyond what would be considered "healthy" or "smooth"), typically, over a long period of anywhere from a few months to a few years before seeing success. (often being discouraged by loved ones to stop along the way)

    The less ethically inclined marketers (which is the majority) selling "the dream" don't talk about this, because it really doesn't help them in their causes to do so. As it's a lot easier to sell when the solution is "easy", and "push-button". They know that this is what newbies want. Be wary of "push-button" solutions.

    So your ability to generate 5k/month really depends on your luck, your skill, your talents, your motivation, your commitment, all things that you can control.

    And that's the best news.

    Because most of those things you can control, and affect positively with your actions. You can even create your own luck through sheer pro-active massive action & learning from your failures.

    But make no mistake. There is a reason why over 90-95% of people in this game don't make more than $500/month.

    For you, what I'd suggest is to try to spot a few good marketers on this board, and learn from them.

    I believe there are a few here left. Although I would not be able to give you a list, because I don't frequent this board often enough. I come here mainly for ideas, and to waste my time .... and build good karma

    To give you a frame of reference. Personally. It took me about 6 months to get to the kind of income you're talking about, and I've heard of others doing similar feats, so it's CERTAINLY possible. And not impossible at all. But I did this full-time. 10-16h+ days. I should disclose this so you know.

    With that being said, if you've got the heart, you can accomplish anything you want online with the right attitude.

    Publish a blog on a niche you know a lot about, network with other blogs to get some traction and traffic from your community, start building a list & monetize with Affiliate Marketing.

    This is the fastest way I know of, of making money with low risk. If you had a high tolerance for risk, you could try AdWords & affiliate marketing, but there is a pretty steep learning curve if you don't know what you're doing, so I wouldn't suggest that.

    The biggest obstacle you'll face in this business, is skill-acquisition, there is a LOT of stuff to be learned. It is a combination of IT + marketing. Be prepared to spend a lot of time in front of your screen.

    Remember, don't be discouraged. If you can make $100 online. You can make $1000. And if you can make $1000, you can make $5000. And so on.

    Focus on making your first $100.

    I know of a couple of ways you could make $5,000 fast but it would take a month to do any of them. The idea of hitting the money-button just isn't a reality unless you've built a large network in your business. That can happen with years of quality service and list-building, it can happen with years of hard work building a large network marketing business, but overnight it just doesn't happen.

    If you have a month or so to do something, then we can make it happen.

    Actually,

    If you intent is immediate/quick cash, although I don't recommend it as a long term solution (this is just a bandaid, and obviously I recommend doing a business for long term success), you can:

    1. Re-mortgage your house for 5k
    2. Get a line of credit for 5k
    3. Get a loan against your car, etc.
    4. Talk to friends/relatives

    Then, when you have the 5k you need, you can focus on making a business and then repaying that loan.

      While people are posting plans and arguing which path is the best to take - the OP disappeared.

      What is the point of continuing to offer ideas to someone who has said "I need $5k?" yet not responded to a few really good plans posted in response? Requests for info about experience, knowledge level, etc have gone unanswered as have offers of assistance even though she has been on the forum today.

      If you ask for plans - and others take their time to try to help - it's a good idea to participate in the thread YOU started.

        What is the point of continuing to offer ideas to someone who has said "I need $5k?" yet not responded to a few really good plans posted in response?

          Thank you everyone for taking the time to answer. It is very kind of you.

          I have been working through a few ideas in my mind today at work. Now I am home I see that I have a lot more threads to read and some to get back too.

          I will go throguh them with my husband and see which tips we can follow and use.

          We both want to see this as a long term thing as if I do get pregnant then working from home would be ideal.

    Hi Jackie, welcome to the forum.

    Well if you are not more confused than ever by the responses you have to your request then you are an amazing person. As one who has been around here for some time and spent most of my life in marketing let me ask you have you ever sold anything?

    Do you know what a blog is? Do you know how to write articles? Where to send them for publication? Do you have any idea of what a niche market is? How to set one up? etc. etc. etc.

    Then this is your starting point.

    Make a list of all the things you don't know and enter them one ata time in the search box at the top of the page. Then read the threads that come up. While the enthusiasm of many in this thread can be overwhelming if you don't know what they are talking about it is only when you find out all you can that much of it will sink in.

    Don't expect the world in an instant because it won't happen. If you are desperate for money then get a proper job and use the forum for information gathering until you know what you want to do and have a fair idea about how to go about it. Don't spend money you need to save for you iVF treatment on things that are unnecessary at this time.

    The threads in this forum are a gold mine of information. I agree that the best place to start is with an affiliate market program.

    God bless

    Norma

      Welcome back, Jackie -

      The starting point Norma defined is perfect - focus first on what you do know and start from there. If $5000 is your goal (for now), that's fine. Now set that number aside and focus on learning enough to develop a plan to follow that you can live with and work at consistently.

      Google is your friend - terms you don't understand, etc you can search for and find a quick definition or explanation. The Search function on this forum can also help find targeted info on many topics. Ask questions - and don't be afraid to try. Hands on experience is the way to get started fast.

      When you are new, the "marketing stuff" sounds complicated. Truth is, none of it is hard to do once you have the basic knowledge of sites/blog/promoting in place. Go for it!

    I am completely new to all this, but I am looking for some ideas to get me started and also some opinions on how long it will take me to earn around $5000.

    I am open and willing to learn so please share your experience and knowledge with me.

    You might want to think about writing for some of the content mills that pay $10 to $20 per article. With both of you working at it part time you should easily be able to make $5000 in 2 months, sooner if one of you can do it full time.

    You wouldn't have to worry about whether your project would take off or worry about competing against $3 writers at the freelance sites.

    It takes work but at least it would be something steady you could count on for an extra few hundred dollars each week.

    If you can't find any of these places by searching forums where writers hang out, you can PM me. I don't want to mention them here but they are not difficult to find.

      In many or maybe even most cases these days, no. I have a close friend who's going through this process and might be on the hook for up to $20K out-of-pocket, and she has a really good health insurance plan in California... Insurance companies tend to consider it "elective."

      Have you ever researched IVF??? (No, I'm not being sarcastic. I'm very serious.) I have and the answer is a resounding "NO!" At least, not very much. It varies a little, but by and large, insurance companies do NOT cover IVF or other infertility treatments.

      I have full health coverage and my insurance carrier, Cigna, will pay for genetic screening and male fertility testing but nothing else. Presumably so you can at least find out whether you're infertile and maybe WHY, but then leave you high and dry. It's extremely discouraging.

      I've read several books on infertility and various fertility treatment options, including one by supermodel/Playboy model Cindy Margolis (who also starred in those infomercials with Don Lapre). Apparently, she suffered from infertility but was able to have one biological baby and either adopted the other or had a second biological baby at an incredible physical risk. (Oh, the poor, rich supermodel!)

      One round of IVF costs in the neighborhood of $20,000 with NO guarantees and a dishearteningly slim chance of pregnancy (depending on the nature of the infertility). (Not to mention the excess embryo problem.) And then of course, there are additional expenses for each round as well.

      I did a lot of research and promptly decided to adopt if I ever do decide to have a child. Hmmm... $20,000 for ONE, VERY SLIM chance at having a child vs. $25,000 for an adoption with a virtual gurantee that you'll go home with a child? I'll take adoption.

      Another friend of mine is going to do genetic screening, IVF AND a surrogate mother. (Surrogates cost in the neighborhood of $80,000.) I don't think there's a more expensive way to have a baby!

      To each her own. But $5,000 is just the tip of the iceberg for IVF. And NO, insurance does NOT cover it. Some infertility association or other is trying to get laws passed that require the insurance companies to cover infertility treatments. But so far, they generally don't.

        This may be off topic, but those of you who need expensive medical procedures done should consider going abroad for them.

        I know for many people, the thought of going to another country for treatment is not appealing, yet there are plenty of hospitals in not so prosperous countries that offer these procedures at a fraction of the price.

        Thailand is one of them. I would think you could save at least 25-50% of the cost by getting treatment at an international hospital such as Bumrungrad, where all doctors are educated from Western universities. Thailand is a hub for medical tourism all over Asia. The key of course is to research doctors beforehand.

        It's something to consider.

        If any of you need advice on where to go and who to talk to, fell free to drop me a pm with your email.

            Warning! Off-topic.

            Alexa,

            I totally agree with you about being able to afford to support a child before HAVING a child. However, I must say that I heartily disagree with your thoughts about being able to afford IVF (or other infertility treatments) as a prerequisite to having a child.

            Infertility treatments are excessively expensive and the vast majority of health insurance plans DO NOT cover them. Someone who can otherwise afford to have a baby (the natural way) may very well NOT be able to afford IVF or other infertility treatments which often require an outlay of tens of thousands of dollars at a time.

            Having a baby naturally on the other hand requires no expense to GET pregnant and then prenatal care and delivery costs are minimal, come in increments and a good portion of those are covered by health insurance.

            Having a baby naturally vs. through IVF or adoption is NOT a fair comparison. And it really irks me that people considering having a child through such methods (by NECESSITY usually) go through so much more scrutiny while anyone else who is as irresponsible as the day is long can get knocked up, go on welfare, and collect checks. Grrrr!

            Those considering IVF or adoption often are a lot more responsible and have given a lot more thought into having a child and how they will care for that child just by virtue of having to pursue IVF or adoption.

            Completely off topic, I know. But this thread has touched on one of my hot buttons.

            I and another friend of mine have chosen not to have children and pursue adoption and IVF instead of of having children naturally not because we can't get pregnant but because we have medical conditions which we don't want to pass on to our children. And we have and are preparing financially for it before pursuing it. We feel a strong obligation to 1) NOT pass our condition to our children and 2) be financially prepared to have a child.

            Another acquaintance of ours with the same condition feels no such obligation and has had 4 biological children, one with the same condition (a daughter). The daughter is around 20 now and had her first baby, biologically. Sure enough, the baby has the condition, PLUS Down's Syndrome, heart problems AND it looks like he's completely deaf. The daughter is pregnant again, too, due in Dec.

            Our acquaintance (and her daughter), feels no compunction about having children. Since it's not fatal, she sees no reason why she, her daughter, I or my friend should be denied children. I'm absolutely appalled.

            My friend (and her daughter) don't hold jobs and collect SSI. I, on the other hand, feel some strange compunction to work for a living instead of living off of government handouts.

            My argument is it's not about not having kids. I don't see why I, or anyone else, shouldn't have children either. But there's more than one way to skin that cat. There's no reason to pass on the condition. Do IVF or adoption, for Pete's sake!

            But therein lies the rub: she can't afford it and neither can her daughter, because they can't be bothered to get a job because it's too hard. (And yes, it IS harder for us to get and keep a job than people without our handicap.)

            So it's not about having children or not. It's about being able to AFFORD it. THAT'S the real issue.

            Yet she and her daughter can go right on having kids and collecting government handouts while me and my other friend will undergo tremendous scrutiny and nosy doctors and caseworkers telling us what we can or can't do or should or should not have. Because we chose to be responsible.

            Grrrrr!

            Ok, off my soapbox now.

            Michelle

            P.S. And no, I'm not about to go to Thailand or other foreign, non-Western country for medical treatments! Scary!

    Create 2 information products... offer one at $7 with a 100% affiliate commission and use the other information product as a one time offer OTO or upsell.

    Think about something that people could actually use and there is a demand for. If you put in the work, anything is possible. If you think you can earn $5,000 in a week, you're right! If you think you can earn $5,000 in a month, you're right! If you think it takes a year to earn $5,000... guess what... you're right!

    I would recommend you to start with affiliate marketing, as far as I understood you do not have your own product or site.

    Action Plan:
    1. Register on Clickbank and pick 2-3 topical products with high conversion rates.
    2. Write 15-20 articles per product, or hire a writer to do this.
    3. Submit all the articles to top 10 article directories, also related niche forums.
    4. Also do social bookmarking - to top 10 high PR social network sites
    5. And then watch for a week for the results.

    If the products really convert well, then you can boost your profits writing more articles.

    Note: It is important to use long-term keywords which are low-competitive. So do deep keyword research before starting article marketing, as this can provide you rank on the 1st page of Google in a shorter time.

    Good luck!

    I would suggest starting some product review blogs and start writing tons of GOOD articles on them. You could start right now, go to wordpress.com or blogger.com, find a good niche (area of knowledge or a particular subject of intrest) and find products in the niche you can write reviews on, write about 2 or 3 posts on the product then head over to ezinearticles.com and sumbit articles with good keyword rich article titles as well as putting some keywords into the article body, and make sure you put a link to ur site in the resource box (ONLY the resource box).

    Ofcourse this is only one of the thousand methods out there but this one is totally free.

    Good luck to you,

    Hi Jackie,

    As far as I know.. internet is not a get rich quick scheme. Yes, you can get rich overnight with product launches but still it needs a good preparation and quite some learning curve to learn.

    If you want to learn fast, you should find a mentor who can teach you how to do it the right way. That's what I learn after buying almost everything they sold in the internet regarding internet marketing.

    They won't make you smart.. just make you confused more.

    Stick with one and what's important is.. TAKE ACTION!

    Good luck

    It concerns me that someone "needs" to earn money to have a child.
    Something tells me you'd be better-off ( and so would your kid ) if
    you waited until you were capable of earning the money BEFORE you
    even considered having a child. Something tells me that if I GAVE you
    $5,000, you get knocked-up without considering the other $5,000
    in expenses that you will have even before the child is born.

    Hey, I pay enough taxes to take care of other irresponsible,
    selfish, short-sighted people's kids NOW and it still isn't enough
    to fill the void.
