8 Weeks To Make 2k a Month, Help...

32 replies
Hello warriors, I have had some success with cpa, but I do not see it good for my long term. Right now I only have 8 weeks to make just enough for a small studio apartment and necessities, before I get moved to live with another family member. I need to be able to make this money so I can stay in the city. I hope i am not wasting time by asking for help here instead of getting to work. I have a job here and I will use that for my online business. Now here is my plan, I am currently building a list and have around 60 people who have opened my emails and 300 who have never opened once it was at a thousand but i deleted most of those who never opened ever. Now granted I used adfly and a couple solos for traffic, adfly was not a good idea. Now I'm going to be using PPV from MediaTraffic on some general mmo keywords and urls. I hope this will be a rather cheap and super effective way of getting leads, buyers, and most importantly OTO sales on my squeeze page of the reccuring commission product Millionaire Society, I need, and I mean I literally need to make at least 40 of those sales asap to get 2,000 a month which most will hopefully stick for a while and I will be able to make more sales in the mean time.Tell me is this acheiavble I will do anything and try any paid quick and effective traffic method to make those OTO sales. By the way I have spent two years acquiring a lot of basic IM knowledge without putting it to good use. and now I have to. Thanks to everyone.

        I think you are missing the sarcasm.

          While I build my list I will have people going through my followup I made, and at first they will be directed to an OTO which on that LP is millionaire society. I would not call my self a newbie but definitely unmotivated for the past couple years Ive had some success but never really kept at it.

                You are playing the old "fake it till you make it" game.

                I'm not saying you've never made money - but obviously you yourself are not making consistent money yet that is the dream you are selling - along with other things on that opt-in.

                  You are right, but I have to try something. I honestly like the IM Niche and I spent a little too much time studying a whole bunch of different ways to make some quick money online and most things I never implemented, pretty much the bright shiny object syndrome... and recently I got into list building and I just want to get this done right, and build a good list. I like my followup messages with everything I wrote being just me, despite the landing page being well how its supposed to be, "salesy".

                    Here is your problem... If you could show a newbie how to earn "$100 in a week" (Like you claim), you could easily earn $300 yourself because you will not have to go through the learning curve. It doesn't matter how much you have read, you could of read a million books but without knowing how to actually make money and IMPLEMENT it, you don't have no right trying to teach others. You will waste their time and you will be figured out very quickly and would of wasted YOUR time. So I would strongly suggest that you IMPLEMENT the methods you have read and go from there.

        All I have to say is good luck! You should start thinking about working for Elance or Odesk. You're probably not going to make $2000 in 8 weeks, though. Just asking, but, why did you wait so long to start thinking about a plan?

    Not gonna happen.

    The only way you're going to make that much money online in that time frame is by working as a freelancer and doing real work for the money.

    Sure there are people who could make that happen, but they are mostly experts who have been making money online for years and learning from trial and error for years. For a newbie, it's all but impossible.

    I would agree, you're trying to make money by teaching people how to make money? Seriously, don't. How about instead of doing that, you try what theory posted and do some freelancing.

    It really isn't that hard. Figure out something you're good (programming?) at and email 25 companies per day until you get a good book of contract business.

    Here are three things you can do to make 2k in 3 months:
    1.) There are tons of people who need loans. I work with a group of hard money lenders who give me $1,000 per client that they lend to. Just 2 give you $2k per month and did not cost you anything accept hunting people down. I get these clients from Craigslist.
    2.) Sell stuff on Fiverr. Set up 20 great powerful gigs and within 2 months you better be making 2k per month.
    3.) Sell stuff on ebay for other people. Network with people or businesses and offer them a deal that you can sell their products and you get a split of the profits. I have a friend that makes about 3k per month in his first two months being the middle man selling stuff for people on ebay.

    Good Luck and Make Some Money

    I love how the OP kept missing the obvious when people commented on his squeeze page.

    and recently I got into list building and I just want to get this done right, and build a good list.
    Are you 'getting it right' though if you are teaching people something that you're unable to do yourself?

    Liking the IM niche is all well and good but if you're on here asking us how to make money then you shouldn't really be promoting a list about how to make money, should you?

        How do YOU know if it helps if you have never done it? How can you offer advice if YOU have never done it? All your doing is taking an educated GUESS at what works best, do you really think people want an educated guess?

          Well I have done a few things and succeeded but nowhere where I want to be. when I started this thread I just wanted to see if other people have tried PPV to build a good list, I have built before with solo ads but in this niche of course open rates are kind of low especially when a person who is interested in making money online is probably signed up to other lists as well, and that's why I wanted to go with PPV and I have a little guide to help me with it as I see it working.

      There are very few who can jump into MMO from the start.

      Some of them pay for traffic to push an affiliate offer.

      Some are naturally charismatic and can get a following going quickly.

      And some have had some other kind of successful business in the past where they can legally promote MMO as there are principles to running a business that they are able to translate into running an online business.

      8 weeks to 2k is not impossible, but it's not probable for most.

      While you're in an urgent situation, I'm not really feeling the fire.

      Right now I only have 8 weeks to make just enough for a small studio apartment and necessities, before I get moved to live with another family member.
      You have a backup plan.

      This is good and bad at the same time. If you fail, you still have a place to go - which having this in the back of your head can sometimes be your ultimate doom.

      I need to be able to make this money so I can stay in the city.
      Why do you need to stay in the city?

      Now I'm going to be using PPV from MediaTraffic on some general mmo keywords and urls. I hope this will be a rather cheap and super effective way of getting leads, buyers, and most importantly OTO sales on my squeeze page of the reccuring commission product Millionaire Society
      You're still throwing meatballs at the wall to see what sticks. You'd have similar chances at buying lottery tickets - and even better odds with scratch-offs.

      BTW, how is the program you're promoting? You are a member, no?

      I'd think a product called "Millionaire Society" would certainly have the answers you need. And if it's an ongoing membership it should have resources as well. (hehe, just googled it and found a youtube video where a guy says it works and showed his clickbank check still in envelope).

      Right now you still have a LOT of holes in your plan.

        Well I want to stay in the city. so that is not a necessity just a heartbreaking moment if I have to start anew, the need is to make a living, and to make this my full time living, this is what I want to do. and I will make it happen one way or another and im currently setting up the PPV campaign as I post this.

    Personally I wouldn't like to be coached by someone who had little experience and wasn't actually able to do what they were teaching, especially when it came to making money online.

    Do you make it clear to your subscribers that what you are teaching them is just theory and is not based on real life experience?

      All I mention is my past experiences, advice on some different topics, I also throw in free eBooks I can give away that I liked, and in some messages a promo in where I recommend a product and describe what its good for. I add my humor to it sometimes and receive feedback from people that like what I have to say.

    No a coach doesn't necessarily have to be a professional, but they should have the ability to play professionally. This is best done by having some type of credential.

    For example, I used to be an eBay Powerseller. While I don't claim to know everything about selling things on auction sites, that shows people that I've been successful enough that I can provide some value.

    Another example, I'm a content writer, but I didn't just wake up one day and decide "I'm going to write content". My writing has been featured on major websites like C|Net and the Associated Press. These credentials are things that I use now to show people how I can add value to their websites (or those of their clients) via my writing.

    How did I do both of these things? I worked on building those skills (selling and writing, respectively) to a high level until I had something to show, and then used that as leverage to build my business.

    Why does this apply to you? Because people aren't very likely to pay you for something if you can't prove that you've done it before.

    My advice? Build a skill, even to a low level, and use that as leverage to get people to pay you money. You'll learn enough about making money by that point (and be at the 2k/month level) that you'll be able to teach people to make a living, just like you want to do.

      Thanks that was a really good post as well as the ones above me. I have a few skills that I should really put to use. Building websites, ranking them in search engines. A little bit of writing ability. Big thanks.

    what kind of investment you looking to put up to make $2000 in 8 weeks?

    To be honest, these kinds of posts frustrate me. I perceive people that want advice on the very thing they sell as scams.

    Ok, let me calm down. My advice is to define your skills. What are you actually good at? If you had done this before, people wouldn't make fun of you the way they are now. Find a job somewhere in order to maintain yourself, and spend the rest of your time defining your unique qualities, thinking about ways to put these into work and steadily build up something worthwhile. I'm not a fan of these "desperate" calls, as you will not have the right mindset (only thinking about money) to provide something worthwhile for customers, and it will most likely not stick in the long run.

    I have to add that I am a firm believer in providing quality content in order to deserve any kind of reasonable revenue. I am not a fan of starting up yet another generic affiliate, but this is something personal. Find your skills (and interests!!), think of something people would really find valuable, and find a way to monetize it. Take time to build it up (don't depend on it), and find ways to market it. This is, in my opinion, the best way to approach getting to the point you want to be at. Move out of the city if you have to, it might be for the best if you can live more conveniently afterwards because you took the time to come up with a long-term solution.

    Good luck.

    2k per month in 8 weeks can be done but it is very unlikely. Focus on learning as much as you can and make sure that you are taking action.

    Easy...

    Step 1) Buy WillRs award winning WSO on building mobile websites. It will show you how even if you have no idea in one day. Spend day two building more mobile sites to practice. Day three build a website in wordpress with a new theme (there are some excellent free ones available now) and display your samples (people will ask to see them).

    In two days you WILL be able to build awesome websites.

    Step 2) Ring hundreds of businesses, email hundreds of business or fax hundreds of businesses until you start making sales then ask for referrals.

    $2k in 8 weeks is the absolute minimum you'll make IF you put in a massive effort. It can be done - it just depends on how much you really want it.
