[ANY ADVICE?] $35,000 in 60days?

13 replies
Hi all,

I'm looking for some advice here. First, a little background...


This is my cousins daughter Annabel-Lee - yes, this is what happens when you're an English major with a penchant for Edgar Allan Poe lol :p

Annabel has a particularly aggressive type of emphysema which has gotten to the point of a single lung transplant being required. My cousin doesn't have appropriate insurance, and this procedure will cost upwards of $350,000.

There is a $60,000 minimum required to perform this procedure of which my cousin requires a further $30,000+

I've got a good knowledge of Internet Marketing, and I work with some excellent individuals who have a great knowledge of SEO and other areas of the industry, but nothing that will generate that kind of money in such a short timeframe.

What I am looking for are any ideas that can generate that kind of profit in a 60day timeframe.

A product launch is possible since I have a technique that hasn't been shown before that readily generates about $2,500-$3,000 per month for me, but with no JV partners or any experience doing a launch I feel that this kind of revenue goal is out my reach.

Does anybody have any suggestions AT ALL? Any help is greatly appreciated...

P.S. I'd rather this thread doesn't fall into an argument over healthcare in the US or anything similar. I want genuine advice since I don't think there is much time to waste

    It is difficult to make that amount of money in 60 days even for someone who's established. Do you have an online business? Can't you work harder to "spark" things up a little?

    You probably won't be able to make all that money in 60 days from scratch, unfortunately.

    I'm not sure how you coul make that amount I money in a short period starting from scratch with Internet marketing, but here's an idea: Have you or your family considered setting up a crowd funding campaign?

    There's a website similar to Kickstarter called IndieGoGo. Kickstarter is full of people trying to fund their new businesses, movie productions, music careers, etc. But on IndieGoGo, there are a ton of different campaigns on that website where people are raising money for charities, operations, medical bills, etc. It couldn't hurt to try. Best of luck to you!

      This is exactly the same thing I was thinking. You may have a better chance of raising some cash faster by going this route.

      Another option - put together some sort of benefit in your town. Call up a few bars or event centers and see what they could do for you. Heck, you might even get a bar to let you rent out a room for free and keep a percentage of the total liquor sales.

      Get local businesses to donate some items for a silent auction. See if any local bands want to perform. People love to come together for a good cause. The more people you can get involved, the better your chances are for success.

      Wish you and your family the best of luck with everything!

        Awesome ideas bro. The money's there for you. There's a way in can be done. You've just get out there and find it.

        Could you not approach everyone you know and start some kind of pledge campaign. Walk across the moon or swim the atlantic or something... Sorry I'm not making light of this. But you get my point - get some sponsorship and do something crazy.

        Post it all over your social media accounts. Find someone on twitter / FB etc with loads of followers and get them to share with their followers about what you're doing. Put pictures of your little cousin and what she's going through.

        It could go viral and you could make that money quick as.

        Good luck mate.

        I like to think outside of the box, so this idea might sound a bit crazy, but what if you create a WSO to save Annabel and also provide some sort of download.

    Try CPA that can start enerating big bucks from the first day and then you can scale. Bit risky though!

    I would suggest to create a crowd-funding campaign for her. You can use Kickstarter or Indiegogo !

    Well, nobody starts out with JV partners. If you're driven you can set them up. It's the only way to do make things happen anyways.

    As for your launch idea, just package it up and put a sales letter in front of it. It doesn't have to be a long, drawn out, 4 video process.

    If you want to talk launch contact me. I have access to big time IM folks that are open to launching new products and we handle EVERYTHING.

    BUT, only contact me if what you have is really GOOD, can really help people, is truly unique, and you can prove any claims made.

    Take care,

    What about setting up a facebook page as others said with her bio and then go to the local media get them to put her story out and get them promote facebook page.Set up a bank account where those wishing can donate.The news story will give you credibility so that will go well and they can do a follow up.Media loves these stories no matter where you live.

    There's some phenomenal advice in this thread:

    If you decide to go the route this post suggests, I'd add one thing to it. I'd contact some local press and tell them you're doing websites/marketing because a little girl needs a transplant. Local press could help you a great deal in getting more business.
