    Ok so I like to post ways I know to make cash fast and this post is no different.

    So today I made $100 cash for spending a solid 10 min of work.
    Heres what I did.

    I was walking by my neighbors house yesterday and stopped to talk to him and throughout the course of the conversation he asked me what I did for a living and I told him that im an online marketer
    and explained that I primarily market tangible goods and digital information online.

    He said that he had no idea how to do any of that and would love to sell some stuff online so I told him that depending what the item was I could consign some items for him.

    Well he said he had a set of 33" tires and custom wheels he wanted to unload and said he wanted $150 for them. So I whipped out my camera took some pictures of the set.
    I wrote down some info about them and I went home and blasted craigslist with an ad and pictures and by 8 pm my phone was blowing up.

    Long story short I sold them for $250
    so a clean $100 profit.

    Now my neighbor is happy and im happy.


    Now some specifics:

    I used a google voice number and created a message specific to the product requesting them to leave a message.
    I had a total of 7 messages

    I answered the messages this morning and told each person where it was the could see the product and I also told them that there are 6 other guys coming out to look at them today so it is first one with cash in hand gets the set kinda deal. I do this to create a false sense of buyers urgency.


    45 min after I returned all the calls I had a 20 yr old kid at my door with $250 cash in hand and I helped him load them up.


    Because I have a merchant account I mentioned on the message that I take cash credit cards and paypal but no checks money orders or wire transfers.

    So my neighbor has asked me to unload some more stuff of his and he gave my name to a coworker of his and he wants me to sell a couple of cars for him.

    I went down to the printer today and ordered 100 business cards that offer consignment services. I plan on handing them out from time to time. I am also going to put up some fliers around town and place some ads in the sunday paper.

    And because I have so many google voice numbers I am in good shape there.

    So pretty much I kind fell into a consignment business.

    The thing I take for granted is that I forget that most people I know have no idea how to write ads or sell online with out wasting their time or money.

    Most people have no clue how to do this stuff with out ebay.


    Its a pretty easy method and its in pretty high demand just while writing this I got 2 more calls from people that my neighbor has referred to me
