    Hi fellow BHW Members,

    Opening my email yesterday, I got one of the worst emails in a long time saying that my ebay listings were taken off for not complying with their new policy (social network related). These listings generated pretty good income but now I'm left with a boatload of bills and my rent is due within the next 4 weeks and I got no money. $0. ZIP. NADA.

    So with almost $1500 due within the next 4 weeks, I come to the only forum I could think of FOR HELP.

    I currently have $500. Can you guys please help me by guiding me in the right direction or i'm totally screwed and will be living on the streets next month like a bum...damm i don't want to be a bum.

    HELLLPP.

    $1500 is higher than average perhaps you could find somewhere more affordable.

    I am a little confused by this, but what I would say is to go to Fiverr and start an account and start offering to complete tasks there. If you are willing to work HARD you will be able to make the money. Offer writing jobs round 750 words for a Fiverr, because you have good English, you should get some offers. Make sure to note that articles are 100% original content and well researched. It takes a while to write a 750 word article well researched when you are new to it, but it is one of the most consistent fiverr gigs I have found. If you find someone who likes your work, usually they will hire you for lots of gigs.

    Thanks for the recommendation guys.

    Changing my location is the last thing i will be looking at because my whole life is very close to me here. Moving would mean losing everything (family, friends, etc).

    Fiverr looks great, I used to purchase from there before. Article writing isn't really my thing. I was mostly looking to see what i can do with the $500 i will have tomorrow (my friend is lending it to me).

    I was checking out things like scrapebox since i was reading that it is one of the products that provides most bang for your buck. Other things i was looking at is CPA, and i purchased a few wso offers but they didn't really work for me. I used to sell youtube views on ebay at really good prices because i have a friend that gives me discounts but now i can't sell there anymore.

    I wanted to sell here on BHW but I don't have the requirements to apply :(

    What would you guys recommend I do with the $500 i'm getting tomorrow?

    Thanks everyone for your help :)

    $500 is pretty enough to make money from solo ads + sales funnel. You can make 1.5k$ in a week with no big work.

    I'm not looking to spend the entire $500. I want to invest my money intelligently and on something that can produce returns.

    I also used to use SeNuke X a few months back but stopped after not being able to handle the price/month. So you could say the areas i have experience is youtube and seo.

    I would say don't spend any money. That $500 may be the only thing you have to survive on. There are plenty of free ways to make money. Join some PTC or outsourcing sites like MicroWorkers. Its better than nothing.

    So you're almost $1500 in arrears already, and how is compounding it by going further into debt by borrowing $500 from your friend going to help you out of your pickle? It doesn't take money to make money; Kickflip suggested Fiverr gigs and you rejected it because article writing isn't your "thing". Here's a newsflash: NOBODY likes grinding out articles, but it WILL pay the bills if you do it enough. Instead of trying to find some $500 magical method to solve your financial problems, you should roll up your sleeves and get to work. I apologize in advance if my bluntness offends you.

    Keep in mind, you are in a PINCH... you have to widen what 'your thing' is... I would jump on Fiverr and work your butt off on anything. Look what people are posting and do more for the same. If they post they will write 500 words for $5, then you offer 650-700 as was said. If you find offers for 50 manual posts in blogs, then you offer 75...

    You are desperate and it's time for you to realize that. If you start NOW, you can make enough to pay your bills - but if you wait 2 more weeks before you REALLY get desperate, you are likely to fall well short and not be able to pay. In the end, it's up to you. You see the clock ticking, whatcha gonna do about it?

    I always get a good laugh out of these, "help I'm going to be homeless if I don't make '(x)xxx.xx' in the next 'y' weeks" threads.

    If you guys are in that bad of shape, the intelligent thing to do is get an offline job like most people. McDonald's or whatever you need to do to make sure you have a home/food/other necessities. IM is a business just like any other business and if you don't even have money to support yourself while stabilizing your profits/income, I don't know how you ever hope to succeed.

    Think about it.

    Thanks for the Honest Feedback.

    I am currently stable even though i'm short on money at the moment because i will always have something to fall back on. Friends and family have always been there for me, as i have been there for them.

    My thing is seo and youtube views but I would be willing to learn many things like CPA, ads, etc. But writing and content creation isn't really my thing ( I never did it). I was checking out fiverr and was considering certain things like backlinks or youtube views but there is way to much competition and it would seem like margins are really close or am i mistaken?

    -----

    So my mission with this thread is to create something with the $500 (if possible, free would be much better) that will allow me to get $1000+ / month and get a part time job, that's why something more automated like backlinks or youtube views is ideal for me. It would allow me to use that spare time for other things. Article writing would take almost all of my time.

    Average internet marketing income on blackhatworld, for people who work 8hours/day at it, is probably around $300/month. If you want more easily, you need to find someone to work for, not just doing freelance small jobs. Join a freelancer website like odesk, freelancer, elance and try to find a gig which pays around $1000 per month for something you can actually do.

    You don't have time to learn if you need 1500.00 inside of 30 days... offer your services on fiverr like others have suggested as well as all the freelancer type sites and respond to the hire a freelance requests here.

    Work 80 - 100 hours a week if need be to make your 1500.00 happen as desperate times call for desperate measures.

    Agreed about the hours working. If internet marketing is going to be your main source of income, then there isn't really such thing as spare time or part time when you are first getting started at least.

    You are competing with people who can live comfortably off of 1/3rd of your income, and probably have 10X the work ethic you do. Most of us who make enough to live comfortably off of internet marketing spend 5-6 hours per day sleeping, and 90% of every waking hour working in some way or another, even if its just marketing ourselves and networking.

    I would get out of the house and do some manual labor.

    Sell any unwanted items on craigslist.

    Donate sperm or plasma.

    Man up and get it done. Whether you do or not depends on your mindset.

    Good luck.

    I agree, save the $500 - it's a 3rd of what you need in 4 weeks.

    Also go offline -- find a job for in the day, do IM in the evening -- do fiverr and offer more than anyone else.

    You never know, in 4 weeks you might end up with more than you even need:)
