How I made $1k in a month, and then $7k in 3 months
Here's just a little encouragement for newbies like me.
Back in 2005/2006, I didn't know anything about IM methods, I just wanted to make money somehow and knew that the internet platform was ripe with opportunity--it was just a matter of me grabbing it.
One winter, I learned about a website called Build-A-Niche (BANS). I don't even know if it exists anymore, but I noticed that many people made their sites selling (through commission junction) ebay items. I wanted to do the same, but couldn't think of what to sell... until I heard some news about the popularity of the Superbowl.
That's when the idea hit me: Superbowl tickets are usually sold out, but you can always find them on eBay. So I made a site selling eBay Superbowl tickets. To market, I simply went to the largest Craigslist cities and advertised the same Superbowl tickets that were being sold on my site. When I received inquiries, I directed them to the corresponding auction on my site.
In less than 30 days I scored a grand from eBay commissions. Unfortunately the Superbowl happened and that was it.
When I was living in Colorado without a job, I would browse Craigslist for various gigs. I noticed one gig, a handwriting study, offered software compensation for a handwriting sample (for software they were developing). So, I went in, did a simple 1-hour test, and I got my choice of brand new software. I chose Microsoft Office Pro, which at the time was worth the most, like $499 or so.
I immediately sold it on eBay for around $420. Then I had the idea: What if I offered people monetary compensation for taking the study in exchange for the software? So I advertised on Craigslist "$100 for a handwriting study." And people bit. Many people. The funny thing is, they knew how much Microsoft Office was worth, but they didn't want to bother selling it themselves. They were happy enough with the $100 cash.
I spent most of that summer meeting people at various locations exchanging software for cash. And eventually, I found an eBay buyer who would purchase every copy of Microsoft Office I had. Ironically, it was a win-win-win-win situation, and 3 months later I pocketed over $7000.
Unfortunately the company didn't need anymore handwriting samples. lol.
After a series of random jobs, traveling, getting married, etc. I want to get back into it, hoping to find the right opportunity yet again.
