Easiest money I've ever made online... too easy. $200

    I'm serious.

    This is very similar to selling a pre-designed website and then customizing it for a specific business... except simpler, faster, and easier.

    I wanted to have some fun and try something new so I paid a company to make one of those animated explanation videos. I realized most SEO companies would love to have a video that explains SEO to people who have no idea what it is.

    So I had them create a video that explains SEO. Next I went to the website of a company that sells SEO to businesses. I grabbed their logo and contact information, attached it to the beginning and end of the video, and emailed them a link to the video.

    They called me right away. Here is what the guy said on the phone: "I'll get right to the point. I like the video. How much is it?"

    He caught me by surprise. I just said, "Ummm $200".... and it was sold just like that. Too easy. I could have sold it for more but I didn't want to get greedy. Now he wants more videos but I don't have anymore... lol.

    These videos sell for $2,000+ (and I told him that) so it was an easy sell for $200. Anyone here could easily sell 10 videos a week to SEO companies and make $2,000 a week. Once people see the video, and see that it is already customized for them, it is hard for them to say no. Especially at only $200.

    The only problem is I wasted my money paying for the video because I don't have time to go sell more. Currently building an agency serving corporations. I suck at making money online but boy was that easy.

    I posted this in the Making Money section because you could probably sell videos like this much easier by cold calling companies and saying, "I made a video for you. Want to see it?" But email worked for me, so you could just use email. And since these are SEO companies, they probably prefer email anyway.

    Jump on this fast before someone else does, especially if you have some capital to get a video created. I'm serious. This is too easy. The opportunity is wide open for this. You can probably make a video about PPC management too, but there are a million SEO companies, so I would go after them.

    lol, If he copy paste these stuffs here, then it will not be consider as nice method.. We people of BHW, appreciate only their own creativeness, stuffs, new money making ideas..

    Copy paste from BHW to any forums is the fact* but whereas in the case of OP :) its reversed :blindfold

    Yes, I posted this over at WF too. Probably the only mehtod over there to make a quick buck.

    I paid $2000 for the video creation and used firestartervideos(dot)com for the video creation.

    I've lurked the forums for awhile but never posted. This is method that will make you more than $5 a day like I see posted around here often for very little work with a little investment of cash.

    Take that as you may.
