How could I make $4 right now? (can't find consistency)

    I know it's a small goal, but I figure with $40 per day, then I'd be making some decent money for myself(should be about 1200 per month). So to try and make that sound simpler, I've narrowed it down to making $4 ten times in a day. Even if that means working an hour for each $4, and then working ten hours per day to make the full $40.

    But the big question is... is there any way to easily and consistently earn $4 in an hour? Like I've been trying out Fiverr with some programming / website modification gigs and I haven't been able to get one gig as of yet(tried multiple accounts and it's been months/years).. But even if I were to buy a bunch of fake reviews and try to boost the gig.. would I really be able to consistently get gigs? (so... 10 gigs per day -- about 300 gigs per month and 3600 per year). It seems pretty rare to see a Fiverr gig with that many gigs done.

    I've heard suggestions about using freelance sites but I find it very hard to find customers.. so that doesn't seem like a very consistent way to make $$.

    Unfortunately my writing skills and graphics design skills are very bad. Programming in PHP and using/fixing apps like Wordpress is probably about all I got to offer for a service. What do you guys think? Any suggestions? I think all I would need to do is figure out a way to make $4 fast and easy(by easy I mean find it easily), and then be able to repeat it 10 times per day. Everything I've tried in regards to Youtube PPD/PPI has been very inconsistent.

    I don't think I'm very good at writing though :( And I'd almost think it would be hard to write 10 articles in one day :| I also don't think it's available in my area (Canada) and I'd be worried they would be very picky too :(



    Yeah, might be worth trying.

    Don't do it backwards. Like for $10,000 in a month, it's easier to make 5 sales of $2000 than 2000 sales of $5. Application: So I need to sell 5 websites in a month, or 2000 copies of my latest product. Even easier: A website broker might find it easier to make 1 sale of $10,000 commission.

    Bigger jobs (or clients) are always worth it.

    So don't break it into 10 jobs of $4 (sounds like Fiverr to me) but rather 1 job of $40 or in a month, 1 job of $1200. It's a transition from internet marketing (CPA, etc) to internet business almost, but I find it easier and less stressful if you think about 1 big goal and not worry day to day about not meeting your goals for tonight.

    That's a really good point. You know... the odd thing is.. I do get positioned with big projects like that where I could meet my whole months quota with one job. But those types of jobs just scare me so much for some reason.. I just get worried... like... it kind of feels like I'm putting all my eggs in one basket. And scared I could put all this work into a project and then find out the other person is scamming work from me.. Or I put in all this work and then they don't like it.. or they expect the work to drag on for 2 months instead of 1. I am really bad at negotiating too!

    So yeah.. I always have all these concerns about myself.. yet all the clients I've dealt with told me I was the best programmer they've ever dealt with lol Just fear I suppose.

    yeah man it can be strange going from one mindset to another, but people are self-limiting in general and can only really receive what they think is possible, back yourself and have faith in what you do

    Create a contract and receive half the payment up front. The contract will protect both you and the client, and the half up front will make sure you're not being scammed.
    No need to be scared of the big projects. A $2k isn't even that much when you think about it. If they're pursuing you for that size of a gig, theyre probably making many times more than that.

    Change your mindset and the way you do business and everything will fall in line for you.

    Don't be afraid of failure.I am not good at negotiating too, that's way i am ONLY using emails and not IM - i have plenty of time to think of a good response.

    Just improve your PHP and wordpress skills, you will be surprised how much work there is for wordpress alone, you can outsource the graphics.

    $4... You can avarage that from one CPA offer (dating signups etc...). Now think how to find one Person/hour to fill one CPA offer (hints: FB, youtube, CL, forums, Google alerts etc).

    When you finally find your way you probably make much more than $4/hour.

    Good luck!

    Suppose you are not afraid of getting rejected, what can you do? Go out and talk with business people in your locality about their company website? Can you show them some samples (you can get the samples from our BST sellers, and talk with the sellers, and get some commission if you sell). In short, can you talk about telling them how you can help them expand and profit? Can you find some items at a lower price in your locality and list/sell them for a profit (on ebay/amazon/etc) -- you'll have to work out how much it's going to overall cost you first? Then there is that fiverr thingy -- becoming a middle man and getting the jobs done on fiverr... There are so many things you can do if you get over your fear of getting rejected.

    Buy a JR. VIP subscription, sell signature - make $50-70 a month. Easy as that. Rinse and repeat. (don't use that twist, I was just kidding, lol)

    make a facebook account, post in groups, accept friend invites, then you post mylikes links you'll get like $5-10 in a week, you can then sell the account for up to $50.
