    Hey, guys!

    First off, I love this site. This may be the greatest compilation of webmaster information the internet has ever seen.

    So, to the point, I need to make some money and I need to make some of it quickly. I used to be a terrific email marketer around 5 years ago but I've spent my last few years penning a few novels. Sadly, I won't see any legitimate returns on this work for another year.

    Skills
    ------------------------
    -webmaster skills
    -website design (html, css, implication of java)
    -graphic design expertise (photoshop, Flash)
    -writing skills
    -email marketing background
    -internet marketing
    -sales skills

    I need to make at least $500 this week. Does anyone have any suggestions for something I could get up and running?

    I greatly appreciate all suggestions and if you have any need for a person of my ability, I am available!

    Thanks!

    Create some marketing graphics set or a sales page/review site template and sell it on marketing forums like WarriorForum etc...

    Make a craigslist posting,with the right wording you'd be surprised how many people you can get,but you'll have to drop your phone number in the post to get any work most of the time

    Also register on niche forums that have less tech savvy people and offer your services there

    Thanks, guys! All great ideas which I've considered pursuing in some form. What I'm more interested in is webmaster ideas at the moment, though.

    Then again, if that's what I'm looking for there's an endless amount of info on this forum!

    :)

    Well seen as you have good set of skills why not create a niche website, not micro but medium. Start off with one main keyword and then find another corresponding 300 keywords related to that. Write unique articles for each keyword and get that page ranked. What yupu might want to do is start with first 10 pages then launch the site then add one article and page a day. If you have problem finding a niche or keywords or would even like to outsource the website building and first 5-10 articles recomend the micro niche plus website service by btb. But you should definetly put your writing skills into good use by making an authority website with quality content. when you have completed one move on the next but take your time dont rush things.
    You do need money to invest in the seo and possibly domains and hosting.
    But you are a write so take advantage of that to make money to invest. Start an article writing sevrice in the services section here or why not put some article writing gigs on 5er. This should cover your costs. I hope i was of some help. thanks :)

    That's a fine idea. I love to write so article submissions is fine place to start. I have $500 or so to invest so it's not like I'm starting at 0.

    Thanks!

    If you need 500$ this week, then go BH and use CPA+torrent/link or spam. Fastest way if you dont wanna sell articles on DP. MNS will take time to cash ...therefore doesnt fall under your requirement. Your best friend is the Money making section and the lower subsections.

    Cheers.

    I obviously understand what spam is, but what do you mean CPA+torrent/link

    Like use a CPA program (say, clickbank) and then promote it through torent/link methods? Do you have a link that explains torrent/link?

    Thanks!

    you could try iwriter.com... that's 100% WH... but they do pay weekly... getting to $500 would be a lot of sleepless nights, but possible.
