    So ill be returning home next month after travelling the world with only £200 to my name roughly.

    I'll be living back at home initially and I'm looking for suggestions on how to make some money fast to get back on my own feet.

    I have skills in Article Writing, Video Editing, After Affects where I feel I could make some money with.

    Ideas I've come up so far

    1. Sign up to iWriter. Write articles via Dragon Nuance for originality and speed until I hit the premium level writer status.

    2. Create a Fiverr gig related to Video Editing. Swap reviews for.initial exposure and go from there.

    3. Likewise After Affects, through Fiverr, swap reviews etc

    4. I have a long term goal of an Amazon Authority Site. I wrote some reviews prior to travelling and ultimately will launch the site and drive traffic via PPC. This.just won't be a viableproject on my limited funds however.
    Although I can write Amazon Review articles fairly well, should I offer a service here on BHW?

    Any and all.suggestions are welcome. Just please no surveys and all that crap obviously.

    Freelancing is the fastest way to make money. It's not scalable, but it's faster than most other methods.

    I have some basic vietnamese and know locals who could perhaps translate and I would take a cut.

    That's what I figure right now. Still open to suggestions to easier areas to freelance in etc.

    Wow I'd completely forgotten about that. 5 years old. I don't have access to that email anymore. How'd you link the 2?

    Well fair play for putting it together. If the mods reading this could delete the 2011 account I'd appreciate it thanks.

    Yeah! It's not calculable, but it's faster than most other methods and freelancing is the fastest way to make money.

    Content seems to be the way to go right now.
    Can anyone suggest alternatives to iwriter for UK based writers?

    Freelancer seems like a pretty hard option. Don't get me wrong, but there's so much competition and certified people that makes it almost impossible to get a project as a newbie :confused:

    of course, in the beginning, he has to work on a lower rate to attract some feedbacks, and then he can rise his rate.

    Sure there is but I have to try. I'm uk based and compared to others my rates will be significantly lower for the quality I provide which should work in my favour.

    I'm open to alternative suggestions for quick money of course, or the best way to break into the industry.

    That's the plan ;) I see some job postings and I'm like I can do that....but then I see the price and I'm like....I still gotta do it :D
