If you had to choose would you prefer to make money today or focus on the long term?

48 replies
If you had to choose between two products - each told you what you needed to do to make money but:

1. 5 ways to make $100 in two days.

- Step by step procedure clear to understand. This one involves you work around the clock to make it happen. It isn't push button and it isn't sustainable - meaning every time you wanted to make money you would have to work long hours at it.

2. 5 ways to make $1000 by next month.

Another step by step procedure. This one involves you have to work long hours steadily for 30 days or so, and still put in 3 hours a day maintenance work after for a continuous passive income.

Each one sells for $47

Each one is GUARANTEED!

You can only choose one - Which would you choose?

    This will of course depend on the individuals current situation.

    So... if the situation was that someone needed to make money NOW, then of course, go with the short-term cash with a long-term mindset that once you've got your cash needs met every month, that you'll then implement a more long-term strategy.

    If someone's cash needs are currently met, hey, why not go for both? It can be profitable to go either way... and it's best to not close the door to one method.

    Sometimes, short-term and long-term methods/strategies can go hand in hand. List building is one of those methods where you can make cash now, as well as build a long-term asset for the long haul.

    #2 seems more realistic and less likely to set off peoples "scam alerts".

    I would choose the second product. I prefer to spend my time working on something that is sustainable.

      I prefer working towards the long term. The world as it is though, requires we have income to pay our bills in the short term as well. If you can generate enough to cover your bills and focus on the future plan as well, you're golden.

      Thanks guys - interesting everyone is choosing long term.

      The best sellers are all about the short term.

      I wonder why that is?

        None of your offers actually involve long-term thinking. $1000 within a month is almost as short term thinking as the former.

    I would personally choose the long term choice. This is because I am in no way desperate to make money today or tomorrow. At this point in my life I'm trying to establish a future, and a couple hundred dollars within the next few days won't really do anything for me.

    Generically speaking I would go with #2 as well. God knows my projects always take longer than a week.

    I would choose 5 ways to make $100 in two days.. because if I used all 5 ways by next month I would be $7500 richer ! but if I chose $ 1000 if I used all 5 ways I would only have made $5000

    .
    If I'm broke and desperate, option 1. If I have no immediate need for the cash, option 2.

    If you are sounding out sales letter copy, you will get more serious and dedicated buyers with option 2. I think I would even regard them as two different markets.

        I personally would choose the second one; but if you are looking for advice on the concept itself, it would greatly depend on who you are marketing it to.
        Many marketers would be wary of quick solutions, whereas the average Joe Newbie wouldn't be put off by the possibility of making money online in two days.

        Just my two cents

        Thanks CynthiaC for your thread as well as your generous intention of sharing both methods.

        But, I am wondering when the time will come....There is already many responses have come and obviously 90% of the thread responded in favor of option-2. I don't think, you have any doubt that now you have a clear mandate for option-2, if you were just wanted to know the real inclination of people.

      It's long term because once it is set up it takes only a few hours to maintain and generates a passive income

      Another step by step procedure. This one involves you have to work long hours steadily for 30 days or so, and still put in 3 hours a day maintenance work after for a continuous passive income.
      Perhaps I didn't write that clearly?

      Part two should convey the message that
      1. it's 30 days of hard work
      2. at the end of 30 days you will have around $1000
      3. You will continue to make that $1000 / mo passively with very little maintenance work.

    I would DEFINITELY prefer option 2!

    I am always about creating a sustainable income... If you went for option 1 you are basically trading your previous job in for another one!

    I value long-term freedom over a quick buck and would want to know that the hours I'm working would pay me forever, and not just for a week or so!

    I would definitely prefer option 2, though I think calling one month "long term" is a misnomer.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9195601].message }}
  • Going for the long term is always the way everybody should be going....

    But the reason why so many people would still choose the short term is to get money now....

    It's important to be able to pay off bills right, and nothing beats being able to get money right now.

    Lucky are those who are able to take a short term income strategy and use it to generate money even for the future.

          No chance - the premise is the product would be guaranteed or money back.

          Perhaps that wasn't written as clearly as I should have written it.

          Thank you for your feedback I will make certain to make that clear next time.

    Neither, because the hourly rate on both is less than the minimum wage here in Australia. Working at KFC would be more viable.

      I wasn't aware that KFC will generate a passive income?

      My apologies for not making that clear in the original post. The clarification can be found in this thread.

    I would chose the second product because most people tend to go after the fast money but Internet Marketing is a real business. People should start to see it like that and if they do they start to understand that building a long term strategy is one of the most important things.
