    Hi,

    First of all sorry for my English, I'm from Spain, so my English is really bad.

    This thread isn't a journey beause I didn't started yet. I just want you guys to help decide which plan you think can help to get $1000 (actually ?) by 01/01/15. I am relatvely new to the IM, i've started many projects and websites and all of them failed (because of my lack of knowledge and experience) but I prefer to learn trying rather than spend hours reading how "how to do this" or "how to do that" and learn from my own mistakes.

    Depsite of all my failures since i started 5 moths ago, i set a goal to myself to get 1000? before 01/01/15 and I'm stuck right now because I don't really how can I make it. I have few options but don't which to shoose, I don't care if it requires hard work ortime, I'm willing to do it. But the only thing I can't do is to invest so much money because I'm broke haha. Anyways, these are my plans, I hope you can help me to decide:

    Plan A. Write 40+ kindle books at 2,68? and publish them on Amazon.es (i know this market is really small compared with amazon.com), but I believe I can make some sales if I publish a lot of short ebooks (20-30 pages).

    Plan B. To try to rank an Amazon affiliate website for a Keyword that has 1900/moth local searches, but i as I've said, I haven't ranked any site #1 google yet, so I don't know if I can make it. I know the basics of SEO, but don't have the money to buy backlinks and stuff like that. On Longtail pro, this keyword has 12 on competitiveness and 17 on keyword revealer, but the top 3 for this keyword are authority sites with a lot of content, backlinks and social signals.

    Plan C. Amazon + Pinterest. Basically I thought I could create a page listing products from Amazon (clother and fashion products) and send traffic from Pinterest. This way I don't have to worry about competittion or SEO. But to really to get a good amount of traffic and money I need proxies and a lot of gmail accounts to create the Pinterest profiles, which requires an investment.

    As you can see it's all about Amazon, beacause I'm not familiar with any other ways to get money haha, I have tryed Adense and I haven't any success with that.

    I really want this 1000? beause I hate the city where I live and the neighborhood and I want go to another city and rent a new apartment. Thanks ;)

    As for kindle, you will get paid 2 months after the royalties are recorded. This due to refund policy, etc... So if you earn 1,000€ tomorrow, amazon will send you the money on 6. december.
    I don't know how are things with their affiliate program, but I guess similar.

    That being said, I'm not sure if it's possible to reach your goal using these methods. But wait for other opinions.

    Yeah that's the only thing about Amazon there payout takes a while. Im sure if you earn enough with them they would put you on a different payout though.

    My vote is Kindle. If you learn that you can use nook and others and make money!

    The problem with kindle is that in Spain isn't that popular, people don't really buy books like tutorials like "how to..." books, "recipes" or even fitness, they look for ficction.

    And even if I was Shakespeare, i would need about 50+ books to really make a decent money. But if I have to write 100 books for the 1000€ I would do it. I just want get out of this sh!t and live in a new city:D

    I would recommend you to go with the plan you have more knowledge, because it's going to be a lot easier for you.
    And good luck, I'm from Spain too :D

    why not writting articles for people in spanish
    language translation service is well paid
    if u can write well
    which i m sure you can as u planning to write ebooks
    plus this make u a Brand thus long term
    this needs 12 euros per day
    something like 3 articles per day
    job of maximum 3 hours in a day
    remaining time u may invest in other ideas given by other friends here

    whichever method u choose
    best of luck

    I've thought about writing articles and sell them, but if I had to do it, I rather writing ebooks, so it's passive income. Thanks:D

    $1000 in three months is not that hard to obtain, but personally I wouldn't go with writing ebooks if you want to have the money within 3 months. if you really want it within 3 months check out CPA marketing or something else that gives quick results. :)

    It will be a lot hard work for me, but I will try. I'm building a gifts site for christmas and and I've already wrote and published 2 ebooks on amazon. I have 0 experience with CPA so i will be focused on Amazon only.

    By the way, how is Spanish economy? I mean unemployment, consumer spending... will people buy your books and other amazon products? Or will they just bookmark for "better times"?

    We have a difficult situation in Spain right now, but people can still buy books and amazon products for sure.
