    I recently got laid off a indep. contractor job (I know it sucks lol) and the employer not only left but didnt pay me all the money leaving me a bind (rent bills, etc due and my landlord is going to evict me at the end of the month, but I explained to him my situation, he doesn't care lol). But I'm not here to talk all about that, I came here because I need to make some good cash and fast like in less than 2 weeks.

    I know this is a stupid question, but I am trying make at least around 1-2k in that time. I've applied around all my local jobs but no response, and I've been reading the forums applying some of the methods. I even emailed local companies to do facebook fan pages, but no response.

    I've been doing articles, fiverr, and using ebay, however I have only made about $100 doing articles, $20 on fiverr, and $50 on ebay in the past 2 weeks, so I need a better method. I pm'ed bhw member on here that seems to have a good method I am going to try today. I have a domain name, hosting, and a website.

    I am not looking to be spoonfeed or handed anything, I just have been applying to jobs and trying to make money im'ing, but nothing is going the way I expect and everything is piling up on me.

    If anyone could help me out, pm me, or give any suggestions, thanks. I have about 4-5 hours free time a day when I'm not driving looking for jobs or applications, and I do have some money set aside to put in a im, but its like $30.

    It's actually quite hard to start earning thousands of dollars right in the beginning. I really can't think of a quick way to get paid in only 2 weeks, because it takes a lot longer than that. But hey, if you can get it to work, congrats and good luck!

    Also, you shouldn't be worried about asking weird questions here. It's actually a good thing to bring up everything that you need to know about.

    I know, If i combine offline marketing with im and apply for jobs, I am hoping that would work, but its a lot of work, gas, traveling, but hey, I am willing to get my feet wet if I want a place to live.

    Godaddy has 89 cent .info sale going on. I'm thinking of getting a extra domain name for content locking to bring in some cash.

    Hey, if you say you have to drive around everyday why don't you just try one of those methods with flyers on the windshields in the parking lots at walmart or best buy or whatever ?
    I think you can make some decent cash, maybe more than 2k in 2 weeks.

    That money in that time is more than possible im sure, but I just cant see how you would be paid so fast. I'm into a lot of CPA stuff so bi-weekly payments is the best I know of. Weekly on a few networks.

    Would it be possible to get a loan from a friend or family member? Just to buy yourself more time, because I'm not sure how you would do that. Think of it like an investment into your business.

    Well, every CPA account you can get will be net30. And adsense doesn't pay right away either.

    Looks like you are gonna have to beat some feet and do SEO for local clients. Put on some good shoes and start knocking down doors!

    If you can get at least 10 clients, at $500 a piece, then that's $5,000. Charge %25 upfront just for setting up google places account. There is your money.

    I would love to do CPA right now, I just got a domain name for content locking and a good website template. At the beginning of the month I ordered the sms local supremacy, and I've been taking the time to watch the videos, I actually have business card paper, a printer, tons of paper, and I tried to call different places, but it was so hard to do it even with value calling. I'm thinking about just going up to places and doing it that way, but its gonna cost me around $50 just to try this method to get the keywords lol.

    So far, I've been working on this site another bhw member suggested to do, and I've been doing ups coca cola applications. I think if I can at least make 1k, that would take care of half of the month to keep the bills and the landlord cool for about another week or two, BUT I would have no doubt have to make at least another grand quickly or they will be on my ass.

    I'm willing to put in the work, its just the time constraint that is stressing me out. I did over 20 articles on tb so far in 2 weeks, and gigs are coming sometimes on fiverr.

    I'll do what ever it takes ALMOST lol, pass out flyers, whatever, i just don't know exactly how to profit from the flyer method without spending cash (saw the mikefiles method).

    I'm supporting the fiverr idea as well... if you can find a service that really catches on you can make some good money and get it to you in time.

    Look on the bright side, after you make the 2k you need for rent, you will have all these methods running that will continue to bring you cash!

    Good luck!

    Finding a job is the best way to make constant money. Once you find a job continue your IM. Unfortunately you're not in any position of power so you need to jump on any job that cOmes your way. Janitor, flippin burgers, sales, ditch digger etc.

    Once you get in continue your search for jobs you qualify most in. Unless you get lucky and land your dream job right away.

    Good luck!

    Pretty much the fastest way to 1k is to sell something directly.

    If you have an account with DP and Paypal, there are a few things you can do to get quick cash. (Some other forums can work, but maybe not as well)

    If you have those accounts and you want some more details, you can search BHW or PM me for a couple of ideas.

    Fiverr is probably your best bet for immediate IM money.

    When I was broke awhile ago, and needed some quick cash. I hit up Ebay. Look around your room, house, or wherever, and try and find some things that you don't use/need.

    Most people have some stuff laying around they won't miss.

    Just to update, yesterday was a really busy day. A friend of mine offered business card paper, blank paper, and access to use his pc printer if I help him out selling his music. So I spent the whole day doing his facebook fanpage, and uploading his music to his soundcloud page. He told me for each album a person buys online, he will give me $9-10 (he has about 12 songs on the album), so I took his offer, plus I can print out flyers and business cards now to promote my business.

    I setup and designed his facebook fanpage page and ran a ad campaign promoting it since I had a few free facebook coupons (its gonna launch today in the afternoon, since that is probably when most teens would be home). Hopefully people will buy his music, and I will get paid. I think I set it up correctly, and I made his landing page somewhat basic, but it showcases his music.

    Also in the meantime I have been making this book and website, I should be done today, if not early tomorrow, and still applying for jobs.

    The last thing I wanted to say is I also made my friend a social dating profile on a site (he's desperate lol), and within a few hours the inbox is stacked with messages. If anyone can tell me any offers or advice of places I could monoterize off that, I would love it. I need a place that doesnt want my info or ssn because I dont want to spam these girls with links and get banned. I need something that they can pay by western union or sly way of getting paid.
