O.K,...I do not have a list...What should I do?

by chewie49 6 replies
Hello Folks!

I am in a situation: I have being earning online about 1.500 USD per month only with PTC sites. I haven't started doing Affiliate marketing yet because I haven't set myself to start building my list.

I urgently need to pay in 30 days for a debt I have of 2.500 USD. So I need that amount in 30 days.

What I am earning with PTC sites I use it for my basic expenses (food, transportation, bills, etc.) So almost nothing is left to pay this debt.

I have 2 products I would like to sell,....But I don't have a list...What Should I do?

I know that I can do some Joint Ventures....the problem is that I don't have any background, experience, etc. and nobody knows me. I have nothing to make other people trust me. No past success, no past bestsellers, nothing.

What could you suggest? What are other ways to sell products (in 30 days) without having a list?

I would REALLY appreciate your advices.

Kindest Regards.

Chewie.

    In all seriousness, I would probably go find a job and knock out that debt before you try your hand at internet marketing. Not wanting to burst your bubble but simply put, IM is not as easy as some would like you to believe and it takes time to really get your claws into the meat of how to do it correctly (there are a hundred different ways to do things right, but the trick is finding the one that works best for you).

    In terms of getting people to start to trust you...posting your picture and more personal information about yourself, where you are from, a little about your background, would really help. It takes a while to build up relationships with people, but that is a good way to start.

    Honestly raising $2500 in 30 days for an absolute beginner might be challenging.

    Making $1500 a month with PTC is nothing to sneeze at, though. You could write a short report on how you did that, and sell it as a WSO. That would raise some money.

    As for affiliate marketing - you don't need a list right away. Jeremy Kelsall comes to mind; he started out in internet marketing while working full time, and was making $500-$1000 a week within a few weeks. He did it by sending traffic to a Squidoo lens, using article marketing.

    Warning, though: you need to be a decent writer and understand the principles of article marketing to succeed like he did.

      Check out This Giveaway that is about to open. It is a great way to start building a list. Or you could buy a list. Of course, since your already in debt, that might not be an option, I don't know.

      I have to agree with that, you have posted plenty on this forum but nobody will feel they know you until you give a little about yourself. There are people on here and other forums who make the amount you need from freelance work, work out what salable skills you have?

      Also don't try to land it all in one go, treat it like eating an elephant, one bite at a time.
      - Freelance work
      - Build a site for a local company $xxx
      - Rentacoder type bidding
      - WSO $xxx
      - Sell an existing site/system/asset
      - eBay
      etc etc

      I'm no expert on debts, but getting some advice on that side might help, even if only to delay the deadline?

        Thank you, CTutt!

        Yes, what Chris said. What skills do you have? I make most of my money at the moment from ghostwriting ebooks for internet marketers. I also have an adsense site and do some affiliate marketing, but those take time to start showing a profit.
        Can you write articles? Do you have any web design or graphic design skills? There always seems to be demand for that. It does not pay a fortune because internet marketers are always looking for the best deal, and you should only offer those services if you are genuinely good at it, but that is a way to make extra money online.
