Ok So, You May Need Some Help With This One. Ask Your Partner, Friends Or Anyone Who Will Help You Out. First, You'll Need A Name. Anything Will Do. Make It Cleaning Oriented. Get A Slogan & Possibly A Letter Head. ### Method 1 ### Go to your local train station, bus station, airport, or anywhere with a high volume of people. Setup a shoe-shining stall. Charge Between $4-8 For The Service. All you'll need is a few cloths, some polish, some good banter and a smile. Initial investment = $30. Max. Estimated Turnover = $100/Hour. ### Method 2 ### Grab the phone, call some large local businesses. Call some call centres if you have any near you. Anything with a lot of office space. You'll be offering to clean the offices and you'll be charging per ft. About $1 is a good figure. You will need help for larger jobs, but pay them minimum wage by the hour ($6.15; I doubt they can't clean 7 square feet of carpet in an hour!). If they turn you down, offer to do it better than their current supplier. If they're charging $1.20 per foot, charge $1.15. That 5c goes a long way. Initial investment = $200 Estimated Tunrover = $x,xxx - xx,xxx (depends on contract size & determination! Some companies have 3000 sq. ft. offices that need cleaning etc.) ### Method 3 ### Grab the phone, again. Call local hire car companies (Ones that hire limo's, classical cars, wedding cars, or just hire cars out), offer to wash their cars. Full valet. $20 /car isn't a bad figure to shoot for. If there current supplier is cheaper, offer that price & offer a better service. Or if they provide the full valet, then you'll have to cut your price. Usually cars can be done in about 20-30 mins, and at $15-20 each will help you out. Limo's are more expensive (~$100). You may want to try local forecourt garages & show rooms. Even if they're local dealers, they'll still need there cars washing, and they pay good money too. Initial Investment = $50. Max. Estimated Turnover = $ 240 ### Notes ### I originally wrote this as a joke, however, this should be taken as serious advice. Quite a few people here won't have earned an extra $500 or so in a day, but what is there to stop you? Go back to basics. If you charged $5 for a shoe-shine and only got 12 an hour, that's $60/hour. I doubt you get that in your current job. I appreciate that there are experienced marketers here etc. And there are plenty of flaws in the above methods. These aren't aimed at you as you don't need it. I also realise this isn't marketing. This is to show people that possibilities exist outside of IM, they just need to harness them. But there is NOTHING to stop anyone from making a few calls, from doing some physical work and earning some extra money. So, what would you rather do this weekend? Sleep in and have a lazy day? Or an exta $500 in your pocket? Stay Smart.
