    ...I'm going to be one of those newbies that asks for help.

    I basically need to make an extra $1000 by the end of the month. I have a chance to buy an amazing house, and finally stop throwing my money away being a renter. Only the move in cost is going to eat up all my savings.

    In the long run this house is actually cheaper than the rent I'm paying, but getting in the house is going to take all my cash. To the point where I'd be living off credit cards for a month or two. Not a good idea. But I can't afford to pass this up either, for many reasons not stated here.

    Anyone willing to share a tip or two that might help? If I can just get another $1000 that would pay my bills for the month. (yes, I know everyone has a sob story)

    I already do the cam show thing, but that is so sporadic. I only do chat sales and can make 4 sales a day or no sales for a week. It just depends. So I can't really count on it.

    Don't have much money to invest since it's all going on this house.

    I'm a quick learner though! And pretty computer savvy.

    I know people don't like to tell their secrets and I understand that. But maybe just a semi-secret? A push in the right direction of something that would get me some fast cash?

    I'm doing the same thing, trying to defray my house buying costs ( they SAY zero down VA loan... but you spend about 2grand) Anyway...

    People say that craigslist ad > autoreply gmail > cpa link is dead, but I've gotten $98 in the last week with about 30 mins of ad posting per day. The only problem with that is, CJ only pays at the end of the locking period, so you wouldnt get paid untill next month (but you could pay off the credit cards once you do) PM me if you don't quite get the idea, I'll give you a step by step (or just search the forums) Every little bit will help.

    Maybe article writing, try to get a better rate than the common 0.01 cent per word. I also second the craiglist thing, but most networks will pay out on a net-30 basis so you wouldn't get paid this month.

    Here is what you should do. Money is gauranteed this way.
    Read posts on PPI on this thread.
    STEP 1:
    Sign up with theinstalls or any other PPI program.
    2) Download bittorrent. Usin bittorrent download 50 most popular applications.
    3) Combine your PPI exe with these applications. Make a torrent of each of newly generated exes.
    4) Upload the torrent at thepiratesbay , mininova. make sure to use different IP and different account for each upload. That way if one of your torrent gets banned rest will still be active.
    5) Once done, you are all set for 3-4 days making smooth 50$ daily.On day 4, restart from STEP 3. Create new exes using same apps, create new torrent, upload again and again count money for 3 days.

    do yourself a favor, don't buy the house....

    save your cash on hand, invest it in your business/online, and then buy your house next year when you've got more cash and the market's hit rock bottom

    if your struggling for cash now, you'll feel really fucked a few months from now.

    I personally do not focus too much on PPI. With me I just spend 15-20 minutes in 3-4 days in PPI.

    I downloaded top 5 applications and all I do is after every 3-4 days, create fresh EXEs and upload new torrents for these 5 applications.

    I put up the bittorrent on a testing machine in my office, that has got a 512 KBPS DSL line. Since it is testing machine being used for various purposes and DSL line too keep on getting restarted to get fresh IPS (may be every 10 mins). Even with all that I typically make 7$ a day with theinstalls. If I run the system continuously and put little more time, with top apps, average will come to 2$ per app and not so popular apps will fetch 50 cent to 1$ each. These are practical estimates I found when I did some research on PPI.

    I taught the same technique to a dear and needy friend of mine, who is from non computer world and for him 10$ a day is very big deal. :) He is making 20$ a day with 25 apps. He has very old desktop, a Home DSL connection (128 KBPS) and no other knowledge of any internet marketing.

    My school of thought is go for it. Never consider cash as a hindrance to yuor way of life. Cash will come and go, all that will last forever is your knowledge from experiences. If you do it now and feel fucked after a few months, you will learn a few valuable lessons.
    In my life so far 2 times I had been near to bankruptcy (not because I was not making money, but expenses and losses become too high compared to money generation) and every time I emerged out as a winner with lot more knowledge of how to handle tough time, finances and always next time I made at least 3 to 4 times than what I was making before.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Although many say that it's only a matter of quantity, I think that the quality of the torrents you upload can make a great difference.
    I tagged my luxecash exe with a different tracking ID for every torrent I uploaded, so I could track the results and get extremly valuable stats.
    In my first week with ppi I uploaded 20 or 30 torrents per day to make $4 or $5 (that 40 - 50 installs)
    This week is my third in the ppi business and I've used my stats to improve my method :
    yesterday I've made $40 with only three torrents (one of them made me $25 alone), and my earnings are increasing every day.

    Obviously I won't tell you my secrets, but here are a few tips for you guys :

    - Luxecash offers an optional tracking id feature, use it! It will take time at first to tag and download a different exe for every torrents, but the stats you'll get are priceless. You will have a better idea of which torrents are "quality torrents" for ppi, I mean the ones that will make the more installs.
    - Brainstorm a bit to find new ideas of torrents to upload (What do people want to download? What program would most of them blindly execute...)
    - Small files and high speed are not always the best, think about it :
    If you put a 5MB program on mininova and upload at high speed, the first people who download will get it in a matter of minutes, and there is a risk that among them someone find the adware stuffed inside and report it to mininova. Then your torrent can be deleted in a matter of minutes, and only a few people had the time to download it : your torrent will have 20 peers and won't have any other, it won't make you more than 30 or 40 cents.
    Now let's say you put a huge file and set an upload speed limit : it will take ages for the peers to download it, but while no one has completed the download, no one is able to tell that there is an adware inside, so your torrent will stay way longer on mininova and a lot more people will download it: you will have tons of peers, and your torrent will even be copied by isohunter and other torrent site before being banned by mininova. Of course it will take more time before your exe is installed, but do you prefer wasting your time uploading tons of torrents that make only 5 installs each in the next hour, or a few that make 400 installs in the following day?

    Another thing about upload speed : as soon as some peer complete the download, they will become seeds, so your file will spread faster and faster, no matter your upload speed. When your torrent have 20 or 30 seed, stop seeding it, let them do your job and upload another torrent ;)


    And to OrangeCat :
    There are a lot of BH method that can make $1000's a month, but if you are not used to them yet, you can't be sure how much you will make from them in the first month.
    I'd rather find a freelance job on getafreelancer or DP to make an extra $1000 in one month, it takes time and there is no residual income, but the results are not random.

    Thanks for the replies. I ended up offering to design some websites at a super low price on craigslist and got quite a few bites. I'm a freelance designer and I HATE to lower my rates that much but there's a lot to be made in volume and I needed it quick...sigh.

    Camkingscash is down. But I do sell cam shows in my spare time. It's just very sproadic since I only do chat rooms and the guys in there are some of the rudest, most arrogant little shits on the internet. They all think every girl is just dying to show them what she's got for free.

    Some days I do great, other days I don't sell anything.

    Fastest way to make $1,00 is to sell a website. If you don't have one find a good deal and then fix it up by adding a new web 2.0 header and navigation menu. I bought an ugly car forum for $1,000 last year and just sold it this week for 4k. :) I really didn't do anything to it other than give it a new style. If I was pressed for time I could have easily sold it the next day I purchased it for $2000.

    Pointless? I'm not sure why it would be. Just because I haven't used any of the suggestions right at this moment, doesn't mean I won't give them a try later on. I appreciate everyones help and the time they took to answer my post.

    I get the feeling I somehow offended you and if I did, I'm sorry. Not sure what exactly I'm apologizing for though as your semi-snarky comment left me a little confused.
