    I might lose my house if I can't make some money in the next few weeks. I have been reading up here on nearly every thread on how to make some money quickly. Unfortunately I have got myself into debt with missing my latest mortgage payment. Google screwed me over and I have no income from organic search, I take responsibility for that for not acting sooner. I can't change the past but If I can come up with a solid plan without much risk then maybe I can make use of my cc limit and max it out in last ditch attempt to save my asss or lose everything... any ideas? I have lots of blogs with little traffic and with many subjects....

    YouTube appeals to me as I enjoy making videos and have understanding of video editing. I have been uploading videos but this is going to take some time unless I can think of something that can get me where I need in a hurry?

    try to figure out a new rate pay deal according to your new situation. Explain them that your business went down the river and you are searching for new fix job. IM will not help you in this situation as it is NO quick fix solution.

    I only need to make about $1,000 to pay my house payment and then I will be out of the pressure zone. I'm actually awaiting an affiliate payment from a indy merchant for just over 1k and I was hoping for it last week but maybe it will be here this week...

    Yes, I agree that getting a real job might be the best idea, I'm looking around at the moment for that but it's not easy as I have not worked in a real job for over 7 years, just working online.

    Also, can people not PM me asking me to invest money in their scams, I had people asking to invest anything from a few hundred to thousands, please I'm not that dumb to use my credit card for something like that and to someone I don't know!

    Is there a way to disable PM's here? im going to look at my settings now....

    avoid using credit cards at this point

    worst case you can stay in your home for 1 year (maybe more) while they go down the legal route to kick you out

    get a roommate // make as much money as you can during this period - sure your credit will take a hit
    but put the money in a safe deposit box - and in 12 months start over.

    well if you have 8K on CC just pay the bloody mortgage, dont go risking your home for a pipe dream.
    that will at least give you time to get a better perspective on things

    Yeah I guess the credit gives me time, I'm not sure how it works but I guess I can just transfer money from my cc to my savings account and tell the bank to retry the payment. I will do that tomorrow, thanks for the ideas and feedback so far... I'm in Australia btw but I would say the banking system is similar to the USA and UK here...

    I have to say I have been experimenting with YT and it's a little surprising how easy it is to make a quick video and get ranked for any keyword. the only problem is that the people I'm going for are all on holiday right now I guess but this looks like the best way for me to get targeted traffic and I have to thank BHW for that.

    So if I just pay the mortgage with my cc card and keep working these videos I think I can get out of this. I will update my progress and I think I will start to see results when people return back to normal life in a week....

    You have a cheque coming in, so pay the mortgage with CC repay with in 30 days, no interest.
    Next month if you find yourself in difficulty once again pay with CC, infact keep paying with CC if your in difficulty
    as its an unsecured debt, your house is not.

    My advice try and get a job, anywhere doing anything, toilet cleaning, room cleaning, just to get a steady income for the
    short term. Then this release the pressure some what and in your spare time, you can carry on with IM.

    Good luck

    As Danny1111 and nipunn12 stated, DO NOT use your cc to get out of debt. If you go that route, you might as well send the $8,000.00 cc funds to the preacher, miracle worker and man of God named Mike Murdock, LOL!!! If you send Pastor Murdock $8,000.00 on your credit card, he prophesies that God will wipe out all of your debt! No house payment, no care payment and no credit card payment.

    OP, from the way it sounds, you need to go and get a JOB now!!! Don't wait on IM to pan out because until you get your financial foundation set, this business can be brutal!

    Work IM on the side until you have multiple streams of income rolling in. This is especially, if you have a family. A lot of Internet Marketers took some big hits in 2012; it's no shame to going back, regrouping and coming back full strength when you are ready.

    Good luck and happy New Year!!!

    • Get "charity" loan from relatives, find job, and keep online businesses as source of passive income.
    • CC is evil, but if you waiting for payment processing i.e. can handle the debt just do it.
    • There are PLENTY jobs for online marketing - e.g. goo.gl dm allow links... 0vGUj

    It is how I'd do in Europe, but not in Australia

    Don't max out the credit. I've been there, done that and it wrecked my credit rating because it becomes overwhelming with interest. Good luck and I hope everything works out.

    As all say, first get onto a fulltime job and clear all your debt...start learning PPC, get your credit card earn for you....test some campaigns with a small budget and then scale it up for profit. But before that, make sure you're clear of all your debt and stable enough to take such risks.

    I have websites with PR2 and above in a competitive niche you can try selling the website in Flippa. You can easily achieve $1000 by selling 3 to 4 websites in Flippa. I would suggest you to stay way using CC - its like escaping the frying pan and falling into the fire.
