    I ned $1,200 by Monday and as much money by Wednesday as possible. I am possibly selling my car so I might be alright for Monday but by Wednesday I need to have made a decent sum of money. I am ready to take action. My problem is I normally try and do to many things at once and never get anything done. What do you think I should spend the majority of my time on?

    I have been told Associated Content is a very good way to make quick cash, but still they only pay out once a week, is there anything out there that would allow me to have money in my pocket by Wednesday? Not to mention I can not get Dragon Naturally Speaking working with WIn64 bit, but I am trying to implement a workaround.

    I am also a freelance web designer, marketer, and graphic designer. MY most recent designs can be seen here:

    http://vcommission.com
    http://advancesolar.net
    http://iphoneanswers.org

    Think there is a chance of finding work quickly and doing it by Wednesday (if I got work tomorrow I could have it done by Monday night, I just have a really hard time finding work and having the deal actually go through).

    I am currently about to do PPV with a friend but I won't end up getting paid out from that for a month so that's no good for the time being. Craigslist gigs are taken within seconds of being posted.

    E-whoring crossed my mind, but last time I tried it I failed miserably, but I could always try again.

    Any other ideas?

    I'd hit up the corner and attempt to get so wasted I wouldn't care who was offering me money. But that's only if I had three days to make as much as possible, which isn't the case, so that won't be happening.

    Do you have a list of previous customers? (or any list wil do it)
    You can start mailing them an offer of goods you have sitting on your hard drive..Reseler rights, PRL stuff, templates, banners.
    Think of a unique package that you can put together.
    Make it a "24hs special promotion", with a low price. PayPal as payment.
    You can post your offer here too, and in other forums.
    Hope it helps.

    Grab a gun, 2 kilo of bullets and rob nearest drugstore,when they catch you just tell them that "voices told you to do it"-or you can get into some cash gifting b.s. site and do some nasty promotion....

    This will solve today's problem but it will actually put you in somewhat of a hole since you will not actually be using the funds to make more money.

    Sell electronics on eBay.

    Search qvc.com for a good laptop or PC and then list it on eBay. If the QVC price is $900, sell it for a bit less or however much you think people will buy it for. QVC lets you pay off the computer in installments. 5 at the most. So a $900 computer can be payed off in 5 months by paying $180 a month.

    So lets say the computer sold for $850 on eBay. That is $850 in your pocket, minus the first months payment of $180, so that leaves you with $670. You don't have to actually order the computer from QVC until someone buys it on eBay. Which means you can use the funds from the eBay sale to buy the computer from QVC. Now normally what I would do is take the $670 and double it using other methods, so I'm making at least $300 off each sale. But obviously you need it for other means and you need it fast.

    Don't forget to use the Paypal refund method to get the money from Paypal immediately without hold.

    Do what you will with this information. I hope everything works out for you.

    Your problem being that it's weekend so mailing your previous customers is going to waste a day or so. Ok you need capital. You will not get that much that quick using AC. You need a website, you need a prodict to sell, if this means you outsourcing it then fine, a landing page is easy to outsource and inexpensive. For the product just scrape a number of authority articles, mix them in with each other and put a price on it, stick a paypal button on it and people now have the option of paying you money straight away.

    The difficult part is now going to be promotion. If you have your car sold invest that money in buying xrumer and use that to make your money, very achieveable in my opinion. If you don't have that kind of capital then PPC is a quick way of getting traffic plus if you have an account already it won't cost you anything until you get the invoice.

    If you have no money then it's going to be laborious progress, place your link in forums, blogs (related of course) and youtube.

    I actually think mason's qbc idea with the paypal trick is quite good as its similar to the argoose method of old.

    Question is not why you need the money so fast but why you left it so late in the day.

    If you've flogged your car by now your half way there... maybe..
    So delay the monday payment and try the qbc method.. it'll work .. like consolidating.



    If life seems jolly rotten,
    There's something you've forgotten!
    And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing,

    When you're feeling in the dumps,
    Don't be silly chumps,
    Just purse your lips and whistle -- that's the thing!
    And...

    always look on the bright side of life...

    If you're a web designer find a few small businesses or businesses that don't have websites and offer to make them one, complete with lead management..or better yet download the Offline Bankroll method and put it into action.

    you got experience with cl marketing then? why not offer that as a service-- setup a campaign for CL: 10-20 emails, set of 10-20 posts to post, set of 5-10 email replies, 3-5 lps or w/e 'package' idea you can think of that will basically put the buyer in position to buy, insert their aff links, and promote to earn. Put a nice pricetag (as many should know and recognize it as a fantastic deal) on it and get to work asap.

    Will consider the 1st, already thought about the second, fuck that lol I'd rather be homeless. What's happening to me is this, I am struggling with money ATM and I had a plan to make enough to get by, pay my rent, and have a little bit extra for a trip to see a chick I've been wanting to see in LA..already bought the ticket for Wed. The importance of this is because it is therapeutic to the affect that it gets me away from my ex, who has turned my life upside down, lives across the street now, it also allows me to have some fun (something I haven't had in a loong time), and pretty much just aids the the recovery process as I come out of this deep depression I've been in from everything that has happened in my previous relationship......

    On top of this the MAIN reason I need money is because I am about to get evicted if I don't come up with my rent. My rent from last month still isn't paid in full (I paid $1200 of the $1700 I owe yesterday) and now my rent for this month is late. My landlord has been patient but wants me to decide if I can afford this place or not immediately because I can't keep being late. I had promised him money two different times, both which fell through because of some things out of my control, and now this is about to happen a third time because I was expecting money that didn't come from two different people (if you search threads started by me and look for the two in JR VIP section then you will know what I am talking about as far as one of the people owing me money). I paid $1200 on saturday, promised $1200 more tomorrow, and the rest of a total of $3,260, by Friday. On top of this I ned about $700 for LA. :(


    Yes, but this is not a reflection on BHW, this place is great, I was making money for awhile, and, well, just read what I wrote above. How does GodCPA and green eggs and spam make me quick money I would just like to know? I have GodCPA (not green eggs) and I just don3't get it, I mean I do, but I don't get how it would make so much money, much less how it would make quick money as needed in this situation.


    Awesome idea, and it works out perfectly because I have been doing research on Terapeak.com on products that are selling well because I am getting ready to start and ebay venture dropshipping....just having trouble trying to figure out which dropshippers are worth it, how exactly I would set up payment accounts being that I CANNOT USE PAYPAL (caps for everyone to see because its ben mentioned several times). The QVC thing is great, but my question is will they allow me to make payments even with shitty credit?

    Does everyone ls agree that I should take the money I MIGHT get from selling my car and buy Xrumer?? I think I should pay the majority of my rent, but if everyone is pretty confident that I could make that back quick with Xrumer I would buy it. As far as PPC goes, I don't have money for that either? I mean, I could probably spend about $50-100 on it but it better make me money or I'd be in trouble, and I am definitely not a PPC guru, but I am not a beginner either.

    Well I will work on this for future payments, is it really that profitable? Torrents? How does it make money? PM me.

    Man, I have tried this, and I always get people who are interested but never follow through, its a tough business, even though I would say my designs are a lot better then the majority people are just really stingy when it comes to websites. I'll have to search for that Offline Bankroll method, nevr hard of it.

    What I REALLY want is that "Change your life in 2009 PPV" ebok in the BST section, is it worth it?

    Hm another great idea, problem is so many Indians doing this for so much cheaper then I can, and for me to waste my time doing thigns that cheap seems pointless. Is there something I am missing? I mean, obviously my ads would be alot better then theirs but price is more important then anything to most. Where would I advertise? How much do you think I could charge for lets say 20 ads? Would I be writing the content?



    Thanks for all your replies so far, kep them coming, sorry I disppeared for the day, slept all day, had barely slept in 3 days trying to make money and it just wasn't working without sleep.

    Also, I really want to buy the PPV book being sold in the BST section but can't really afford it, do you think it would be worth buying if I do make enough money to get it? I PMed the guy to se if he would do a trade or let me pay half and no response :( ..... Anyone hre purchased it? Was it worth it? I am trying to convince a friend to invest in PPV with me and it's not as easy as it used to be (for stuffing, etc) and just ins't making money, and there is little info out there on it.

    Anyways, this thread is about making money in, well, 2 days now, so back to that. Another thing I wanted to point out was that I DO NOT have Paypal any longer, paypal fucked me over on this last transaction, EVN THOUGH they knew I was getting screwed by the buyer (they said this) they still did not care.

    Re Xrumer... I doubt I'd buy it straight off, not unless you have a plan in place to use it effectively... It can and will make you money, but only if used properly and of course you have to buy it and send money to Russia first. You can buy some cheap Xrumer blasts here on BHW, so give that a thought.

    As for QVC, that's a great idea, but again only if you've thought it through and have a plan in place, otherwise it's borrowing from Peter to pay Paul and could get you in trouble down the line. The point of using the profits for something else are valid, but do you have a plan in place for what you'd use the money for?

    I love women and have traveled long distances to see them, and while that did elevate my mood, it usually did not doing anything worthwhile for my bankroll.

    For immediate money, I'd suggest the article arbitrage thing from Yukinari84

    I love to gamble and I'm an "All In" type, but it's good to have a little bankroll behind you to cushion a fall.

    Fuck man, your life sounds like a real mess right now. You need to be smart with your money, I don't think you have much of a shot at getting $4k by Friday but I wish you the best of luck.

    I would suggest swallowing your pride, and starting over. Move to a small place with very cheap rent, cutback on all of your expenses and live for as little as possible while you rebuild and get your shit together.

    That Vcommission design looks pretty hot, so I could send some web design work your way if that would help you out in this tough time.

    Well I was moreso meaning setting up a campaign from scratch type of deal. Not really creating an ad or posting an add, but like a full package that whoever buys must go out and do the other work of posting, replying, and setting up their lps or redirects. If you can 'sell' the idea well enough by pushing the money people 'could' make with a 'valuable' campaign 'targeted' for their cpa offer, then you put a steep tag on it. I don't see anything like this being offered (though honestly have not looked extensively...well at all, but in general I have not seen it offered), and there are so many lazy people that would rather pay someone to setup a CL campaign for them rather than doing their own so I do believe the market is there. It would really only come down to what you would offer in the package as ads/emails/follow-ups are not all that hard to come up with (though many would disagree) which is why I also suggested throwing in a quick lp or two (I'm not a designer so don't be offended when I say 'quick' either...but perhaps just altering a template a bit would suffice like everyone else does calling each template different when the only thing different is the color..pshaw...I digress...) and giving them a good 10-20 emails and similar quantity of ads and replies. =D

    Only dilemma now I see though is your paypal problem. Most people pay with paypal and many are not comfortable with the alternatives that could help you the most like western union because of the idea of not wanting to be 'scammed' no matter what good intentions you may have or say. :/ Do you have no way of getting another paypal account or having funds sent from paypal to your banking account?....Seems too you would need a more expedient payment processor than paypal too with those types of deadlines. Bank to Bank too would work yeh, but still the whole scammer mentality...idk mate....seems you have really pushed it to the limit on this one--how did this just spring on ya?

    most networks pay net 15 or 30 and u cant use paypal. U got got good design skills and can (i assume) speak english eloquently...

    If you have a laptop great, if not grab pen and an notebook. Get cleaned up and throw on nice threads.

    Hit the streets, hit every business downtown, every stripmall, walk ur ass off and sell them web design / re design /seo / email marketing / menus / graphic design. whatever. Get half upfront and rest on completion.

    Odds are in ur favor that u will run into at least 1 or 2 people/business that are looking for something done right now.

    be lucky

    I'd be willing to get out there and work but Miami just works differently, people frown upon door-to-door sale type people here, it's more about who you know here and its almost as if it's "of lower class" to go door-to-door...Don't get me wrong, I am still going to give it a go, rather phone and email them and if any are slightly interested I'll go in person. Maybe someone on here might need a design, or maybe some of you know some good places to go for people like me that might have an abundance of potential customers that actually have money to spend and are ready to spend it.

    If people aren't willing to do anything but paypal then that's a problem. I simply don't know why at this point people wouldn't have found alternatives to this HORRIBLE service....they literally tried to rob me this last time around.

    The QVC thing is good, but I don't think I can do it because I don't have a credit line or any extra money.

    I HAD a $100-150 to spend until after I posted my first reply I went outside to find my rental car TOWED for the SECOND TIME this week. I park it in the exact same area every day (for the past 5 months) and have never even gotten a ticket. Usually when you get in trouble you get a ticket, I have NEVER hard of people getting towed where I got towed....anyways that was $241, plus however much this rental car is going to be when I return it tomorrow, luckily they took a deposit so it shouldn't be much more than that. *sigh*. I don't know why this shit constantly happens to me, I am an honest guy with god intentions and never fuck people over yet karma just hasn't seemed to make its way back to me yet..

    I am thinking up some craigslist packages right now that I am going to post on Digital Point since I don't have a way of paying the $30 fee here because of the paypal thing.

    I am also going to edit my original post in about 5-10 minutes with a list of all the software/services I have (except the secret ones ;)) and maybe that can give you guys some ideas that haven't crossed my mind yet (very hard for me to think straight with this type of pressure). Thanks for all your ideas so far!

    I don't rob people, but I do have a gun, and if you were anywhere near me right now I'd probably pistol whip you just to make the world a better place.
