    I need help guys, My name's Josh and I'm 18 and I've been reading a bunch of threads on this forum and it has inspired me so much! I've been trying for months now to get into a great school that will really help my education. The school initially costs $37,000 per year but they have given me a scholarship and dropped the price down to only $7,000 and I do not want to miss this opportunity.The problem is that I don't have $7,000 and I have up to December to get $7,000.


    Is this possible? I was thinking you guys could help me with this.

    What ideas do you guys have in mind?

    Some of the ideas I've thought of were to create a news site and add it to Google news and earn money from adsense, which failed because I was not added to Google news.

    The site i mentioned above is called heatednews.com.

    I also tried to create my own auto blog yesterday but I wasn't really getting any traffic. This site was 25k.info

    I've also bought the domain findyourservices.com becouse I was thinking of creating a site kinda like a classifieds site but only dealing with services and It caters both international and local services and people would pay $99 per month to list their services in a category.
    The problem with this site is that I don't have enough money to create a design and manage the site.

    So give me some of your ideas because I'm not sure how or if I'm going to reach this goal.

    Thanks!

    I was being sincere, It's not another lame how do I make money thread. I was just asking for some tips that you could give to help me increase traffic in my site or increase adsense earnings.

    That's really the aim.

    I'm also guessing you commented just by reading the title and did not actually take the time to read my thread.

    There are several ways to make that money in under 3 months BUT by your attitude it sounds like you're giving up extremely early.

    You said you created a news site that didn't get indexed into google news? Why did you quit trying?

    you created an autoblog YESTERDAY and expect results?

    All of this takes effort and hard work. More than anything the best advice you can receive on this forum is to never give up.

    If your aim is to get traffic to your site, you have to diversify a bit. Promote on other sites, do link exchanges, commenting, network with other siteowners etc. There are a thousand ways to increase traffic.

    Here's the issue. Even if you made $7k by your school deadline, you'd have to wait to receive payment, and then wait for it to clear. Timing with anything online can get dicey, and a delayed (or refused) payment can hurt you big time.

    If you're in the US, I can talk to you about financial aid. I'm graduating in June and the loans were worth it. Especially if you are getting a $30k scholarship, don't overlook a loan package. If loans are already a part of your financial aid package, you can probably get an on-campus job through work-study. If you're looking at living in the dorms, it's almost always cheaper to find a roommate or rent on craigslist than to live in dorms. Over 2 semesters I wasted about $6k between dorm and over-priced "board" because I was 17/18 and scared of renting a place (FYI rent in that area was <$650 and people were always needing roommates).

    The big thing is to talk to your school and let them know what is going on. They might be able to increase your award, add an award, waive some fees, add loans, add workstudy, etc etc. They are your partner in this. Just tell them your situation and ask for ideas. If they can't offer anything else, ask if moving to part-time study would hurt your scholarship. Usually they will ask to call you back, and confer with higher-ups in the office as to any options.

    If you're truly stuck, ask if you can defer for a year and still keep the scholarship. Use that year to work, save, and CLEP out of some pre-reqs.

    Become a pimp and go by the nickname "gator". Your girls will make you some bank in 3 months. Your only problem will be that school will take up too much time while you watch your girls. Keep your pimp hand strong brotha

    Hmm, you have less than 2 months. I don't know what to say man. You can try to make good shit what people want, put it on your website and protect it with CPA offers. To get visitors, make/buy facebook accounts. For 320 euros I can make you 50 000 facebook targeted friends to who you can offer you website. PM me if you want.
    Other option is to loan 2000$, go to Africa, pay to two young woman 100$ to extract their kidney, and go back to America. There, you can sell two kidneys for 60 000$, and from money left you can by more FB accounts from me.

    BTW, you don't need to trip to Africa. You can sell your own kidney and when you finish school and get a job you will have enough money to buy another one

    Moving story, sounded like a good pitch. But you're in luck! Young prostitution is in high demand. :p

    In alternative you might want to try CPA networks and the THOUSANDS of threads about it here.

    Create 10 WSO products over the next 10 weeks, launching one of them each week. Aim to price them at $40 and try to make 18-20 sales of each. At $720 made per WSO, that's $7200 within three months.

    Hey no problemo, once you are two years into your program your employability will skyrocket. This is a big reason why I always tell people to go for loans for their degree. It sounds counter-intuitive, but its really not. If you graduate with the average $28k in loans, it's surprisingly easy to pay back and most mid-20s grads make double or triple what the average mid-20s non-grad makes.

    Pursuing a part-time job online is very worthwhile, but don't expect major results right away. Don't waste time on advanced methods like FB spamming or blackhatting (much) until you are already making at least $1k/month steady. I see too many people killing their golden goose by jumping into BH with both feet when they first start out.

    you're not going to have $7K in cash in hand by december, realistically. Note that I didn't say that you're not going to MAKE $7K, you're just going to have to wait through a billing cycle or two to get payment. So here are some realistic options:

    go to your school's financial aid office and take out a loan. do it now or at least explore the possibility without delay because these things take time.

    make a product, sell a product or something that you are not in someone else's billing loop.

    have a look at harro's newbie money making way thread. See what interests you out of the bajillion ideas, and take one idea and run with it. Figure out what you're going to do and then post here for help.

    don't expect everyone here to drop everything and say 'o, hey, another 'need money fast' thread, let's help' that's a yawn a minute. try try yourself, and then ask, and the feedback will be different.

    the thing you have working against you is your impatience. yesterday, really? for the autoblog that didn't make 6 figures by noon? oh well. do you really think that you gave that a fair shot?

    see what you can come up with on your own, it may surprise you.

    I've got a gread idea.

    A real day job will help you get started :)

    If you do overtime you'll reach your goal with ease.

    IM will not give you $7k in 3 months considering how new you are.
