How To Make A Lot Of Money In A Week?

31 replies
How much money have you made in a week?

I have several projects I have not quite leveraged and want to sell membership packages.

I have several blogs and have been building them up to where one is a level 2 and one is not ranked but actually gets similar views and better engagement and has more facebook likes.

I haven't really tried to make much money with the blogs my purpose was to use them to build a reputation and for marketing purposes, content linked to my websites/services.

However, I spend much more time keeping my blogs going than doing services and things on my website and I want to change that. I kind of need to make a lot of money fast because there's a couple events related to improving my reputation and business coming up and I would feel so horrible if I missed them.

So what would you do or what have you done to make money really fast?

    Sell everything you don't want or need on ebay - you'd have the cash within a week. Everything else takes time, effort and commitment.

    The quickest way that I know of is by selling physical items you own and sell on site like craigslist, ebay, amazon.

    The next quickest is by offering a service either online (writing, installing software) or offline by offering any skills you know and getting paid.

    Craigslist's gig's should give you an idea.

    Maybe that's the problem... ever heard of the Pareto Principle?

    Perhaps once you start investing your more of your time on the activities that really matter, you're going to find yourself making money much faster.

    Just a point to consider

      10,000,000 ... I mean honestly... From an educated guess I would assume it all depends what niche you are in, what your target is, your level of authority, your competitors, the content you provide, and on and on...

      You don't honestly expect someone to give you a number do you?

    Here is a good, not great idea. Write 2 articles per hour earning $5 for each one at iWriter.com. Work 16 hours a day for 7 days in a row. You will earn over $1k in one week.

    Believe it or not there are people who work 16 hours a day on this forum and do not earn $1k, but they will knock writing for low pay.

    If you have decent American English you could do this and they pay weekly to your PayPal account.

    Like I say this is a way to do it, not necessarily a great way. You will be tired at the end of the week.

      How long is the typical "article" you are referring to with this method nvm I checked the site out and it varies, you can make 5+writing 300 word articles but the approval rate for those are kind of low so I guess it depends on how good of a writer you are.

    $3,000 in one week has been my best. Who cares because my results mean nothing for you. I tried to make money REALLY FAST in the beginning of my marketing and made pennies. I stopped coming from a state of desperation and started focusing on building value and keeping consistent with marketing and things started changing.

    If you're dependent on active income then it will take some time before you earn a lot of money in a week but if you have built or worked on online businesses like affiliate programs that could give you passive income then you can earn a lot of money even in just one day.

    Thanks for the replies. I don't think much of this applies to me unfortunately. I'm a pretty minimalist person, I don't have a lot of frivolous items, mostly just clothes/shoes for my kids, I have thought about looking into ebay but mailing stuff out seems a waste of time, I'd rather sale it locally.

    As for building value...I have, I have, I have...for years. I have an excellent reputation in some pretty high traffic web populations, I just have not leveraged that. I've done a lot for free and some pretty cheap services. I have written but not necessarily completed a bunch of ebooks that have had high value but I no longer have access to them, so I know at some point I'm going to have to go back and rewrite them from scratch which for some reason triggers a bad emotional response.

    As for writing, I'm an excellent writer. I don't think I have 16 hours in me though, being a single mom and all...but I have worked for super cheap, that's not a problem.

    My real problem I think is that I still feel guilty asking for money. I always used to work for donation and went through a period of spiritual renunciation where I would do everything for free. I am somewhat paralyzed by this old habit of not knowing how to get money from people even when they express that they want to buy something from me. I realize that I'm not good at promoting my stuff. Or closing a deal. I don't mind asking for money, or suggesting pay, but asking more than once or making sure people order seems detached from my work and I haven't figured out how to include that in what I'm doing, I guess.

    I volunteer on several websites/facebook groups as moderator and I do affiliate stuff, though I'm not very good at it, and I promote and review things on my blogs.

    I will look into these ideas further though, thanks for the input.

    I wouldn't really consider myself to be a beginner, I would consider myself to be in a rut. It's like I know what to do in theory, but putting it into practice is like hitting my head against the wall. I know I am missing out on something but I think I have a lot of the process in place, just something(s) super important are off.

    I will look into the Pareto principle.

      My real problem I think is that I still feel guilty asking for money.
      Now I'm a newb and not doing this personally (trying to get there though), but this is what some of the successful people I follow say. Your current algorithm looks like this:

      1. Create value
      2. Deliver value
      3. Get paid
      4. Go to step 1

      They say you should think of changing the last step to "Go to step 2" instead. Sell eBooks for example, instead of "writing" them. Once created, deliver the same value, over and over and over again. To the same or to different people.

      There's tools that work which will rid you of the second problem too (guilt). I know, because I'm using them and can see very clear results. A few of them are (google them) Paraliminals, the Sedona method, and the Lefkoe method. The key is, of course, to want to get rid of it. Most people are attached to their guilt and won't let it go.

      Good luck to you! I know you'll make it big time.

      While some people may see that as selfless, it could also be seen as selfish. You may feel good about not taking their money, but think of how guilty you are making THEM feel by not taking it. All so you can feel good about yourself?

      Every now and then certain people come to my door, and they ask if there is anything I need help with. This is related to their belief system, so I try to think of something small that they can do. I don't do it because I really need anything done, but rather so they can have the satisfaction of doing it.

      You will continue struggling until you change your thinking. Remember, if you are providing real value (as you say you are), then people WANT to pay for it. If you take that opportunity away from them, then you are either arousing suspicion or transferring your guilt.

      Something to think about.

      All the best,
      Michael

      Well, this is your problem. Don't ask for money. Create a product, write a sales page put a buy button on it and that's that. Not negotiable. Pay if you want the product. Otherwise, you can forget about making a lot of money in a week. You only make money by selling something.

    You can join some sort of a network marketing program online, advertise it like crazy (in the right places) and then teach everyone on your team how to do the same. Make sure to give them a blue print on exactly what you have done.

    You will probably not do so well in your first few weeks but as you start to bring in "leaders", your income will start to grow. I can say that because I have experienced that in the past.

    Just make sure that you are persistent and consistent.

    Do not feel guilty for asking someone for money. As sbucciarel stated, you are providing something of value to the other party. You deserve the money.

    Yeah...I don't not want money to make myself feel better...it's just a habit, it's something I'm uncomfortable with.

    And I don't ask for money either...I have things on my sites that are for sale, but I don't have enough people coming to my site and I'm not reaching the right people. The people are on my blogs and getting them to come to my website, well I guess I need to be more direct about that.

    Sales page is probably one of my problems too. In the past I've done services that pay a lot of money, I have not had to ask or work on that, it just happened, it just came to me. I would put out a resume, I'm good at writing them or respond to an add and talk directly to a person and they would just decide on their own to hire me or pay me for a service.

    I want to spend a little bit of money to make this happen, but I'm not sure where to put my money. Anyway, I'm considering all things and thanks again for the responses.

      Put the money in a self-improvement course, or anything else that will help you to make positive associations with money.

      You need to be completely comfortable asking for money before you can get the amount of money you deserve.

      It also sounds like a good dose of self-confidence would help.

      All the best,
      Michael

    I might make 1k this week and next week only $100.00

    A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself
