You need to generate $500...

by Kim Standerline 15 replies
within a couple of hours, how would you do it...

You've got a pretty hefty bill to pay, and you need to generate some quick cash! You've got about 12-24 hours to raise it, how would YOU do it).

Ways I would look at it.

Email my list with an offer they definitely can't refuse.
Combine that offer with a special WSO (to reach even more people)

I can think of a couple more, but be interesting to see what other's can come up with on a bright Sunday morning.

    A new PPC campaign for two or three of my products put together at a 50% + sale... That would be at least a $150 product... just need to sell 6-7 of them(taking into account the PPC costs)... I will create a video salesletter.

    By the evening, 500 should not be big deal at all...

    Of course you would need your own products for that which I am sure you have Kymi

    I would spend the first 5 minutes searching the forum for the 182 other "how to make $X in Y hours" threads and pick one of those ways :p

    Then, more importantly, I would take a good look at why I suddenly have a $500 bill to pay and why I don't have the money ready. And I'd make an effort to avoid the problem in the future.

      Sure Kyle, that's a good management _____________(couldn't figure out the right word)

      Well Kyle, thats a good plan but unexpected things do happen.

      Kim - I'd either do a quick ppc campaign with a really sweet deal attached, or a good WSO, or both. I've also had good luck in the past with quickly selling surplus electronic items on eBay to raise quick cash.

        Hey Kim,

        I can't see why someone who is in need for a quick
        cash flow can't create a simple little report in a couple
        hours or an audio or even video product and do a WSO...

        And if they have a list do an email campaign to it...

        I think it's all about the niche and what they (visitors)
        want to know...

        Doing a site stealer type of thing might be a good
        way to go Harris Fellman style...but it comes down
        to the individual skillset because they might have to
        write copy, deal with setting up the site and backend.

          hi,

          if i had to make $500 in a day i think i would probably end up spending that on ad costs rather than making this!!!

          if only it was that easy!

          Roll the closest drug dealer


          Failing that.

          Ask friends, family, the neighbours, even local businesses
          if they needed any crap sold on eBay. I'd take a percentage.

          I sold a friends, friends car on ebay 3 months ago, and made an easy $400 bucks for a couple of hours work + monitoring the auction (all questions were directed to the friend).

          Great photos, great auction copy... run local newspaper ads to drive traffic to your auction with a few bonuses.

          Works a charm.

    Hi Kim,

    I guess I'm just a one trick pony but here goes again. LOL

    I would get up early in the morning and put $3 in my pocket. I would walk to the corner. I would get on the bus and ride it to a city far far away.

    Walking into a McDonald's I would order a dollar sandwich and a cup of coffee. I would slowly eat the sandwich and drink about 5 cups of coffee with cream and sugar. Now I'm broke and don't even have bus fare home. I MUST SUCCEED just to get home. LOL

    Now the fun begins.

    I would walk into every Mom and Pop business and offer them a website and a listing in my local directory for only $150 a year. I wouldn't stop until I had my $500.

    Then I'd come home and get hosting, set up my directory and build the ugly little websites.

    That's what I would do. Oh wait. That is what I did 7 years ago. Now I guess I'd just write a report on "How I made $500 in one day" and sell it as a WSO. Oh wait, I did that too. Funny how one thing leads to another that leads to another ....

    Umm

    Can I just point out this was a rhetorical question lol, thought it would be a useful exercise for those willing to participate, (and helpful to those who often ask this type of question)

    Not quite down to my knickers yet! (Though after taking daughter and grandkids out shopping yesterday, could quite soon be)

    Cheers
    Kim
