    To find a way to make a consistent $800/mo or else you had to agree to work full time @ Mcdonalds for the next 5 years for $3/hr and QUIT internet marketing forever - what would you do/buy/create?

    Assuming you have the following already:

    Webhost with unlimited everything
    Web creation skills ( html only) & ftp knowledge.
    Wordpress knowledge - but minimal
    Minimal writing skills
    Computer/internet available
    Anything needed that can be downloaded here for fr33.
    Accounts with az00gle, Cj, Neverblooo and linksh@re
    Clickb@nk Acct
    Epassp0rt3 acct - but no card
    You are smart and speak/write proper english


    BUT!

    You don't have / can't use P@yp@l
    You have been banned from Ebay
    You have No bank account
    You have No credit cards - just a prepaid one with the $500 on it
    You have No car
    &
    You have No phone

    I know there are threads on here about How to make money fast but most revolve around having at least a paypunks acct and or a bank account.

    You have 4 hrs a day to dedicate to making this work.

    I think you need to look into adwords. But look deeply into it. Its a gamble sometimes but if your smart you can make quick quick money. Especially if you combine the election with some kind of survey. Im not real good with adwords myself but maybe a local professional can shed some light.

    Something I am familiar with though is Craigslist. You can make quick money with that as well but you need to have multiple IPs and a pretty good understanding of their spam filters.

    There are lots of CL posts here and Adwords I think. Start researching.

    Would you like fries with that?

    If you don't have a bank account and you don't have gaypal i think McDonalds is the only option. Because how are you going to cash the checks from azzz00gle, etc If you can't change digital earnings to money that you can use in real life, you are pretty much f*****

    True, but i'm not saying this is my particular situation. I think azoo will send a check won't they? if not CB will and same wit CJ.

    Craigslist is a good option but what would you sell with it?

    Would you just post ewhore ads? or?

    I am not good at it, and it's completely cliche but, I do think there's some merit to "the money is in the list".

    Even with minimal writing skills, you can put together an ebook or 12 and market them. I think it's proven that rehashed shit in internet marketing does pretty well. Why not something else...credit improvment, dieting...etc

    Pick a niche
    Check niche related forums, wiki's, article directories...etc. and beg, borrow or steal the content for it.
    Create the e-book , report...etc.
    Put a low price tag, or NO price tag on it to get even more opt-ins.
    Put affiliate links in the ebook for immediate chances at getting aff sales.
    Put up a landing page
    Post your free report on classifieds in ebay (there's a great post from carsonrathi on BHW for this)
    Post on CL
    Put links to your landing page and free report in your (insert niche here) forum signature and get out to every niche related forum and start posting so people see it.
    Collect your opt-ins
    Find affiliate products and market to your opt-ins after the fact.

    Wash, rinse, repeat (I can't believe I just typed that).

    Invest money in some PPC training from Perry Marshall and then spend the remainder on setting up some campaigns/landing pages.

    Once you scale it up it would be very easy to make more than $800/month.

    Yes azzz00gle sends checks, but how are you going to cash the check without a bank account? I don't know which country you live in, but the ones i've lived in you have to deposit a check before funds are released. Asking for cash checks is going set off alarm bells with CPA networks

    Laptopdiva: I believe AC only pays out via Payp@l so that wouldn't work unless there is a way to get money out of them without one. (?)


    Roadie:

    In most cities in the US you can cart that check to any check cashing place with your ID and cash it in a few minutes.

    Stunna & bobfrapples: Good ones! :)

    As far as the money thing goes, is there anyone you can trust, who also trusts you who could set up a paypal account for you? Have them open a bank account with no money in it just to get the paypal account verified and offer them a percentage till you get one of your own maybe?

    PPC will be the quickest way to earn money, but also the quickest
    way to lose it. By the time you learn how to properly implement
    a campaign, your 30 days will be up.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Laptop Diva, Thank you. I am not versed in PPC and the time frames for that.

    As far as the Paypal account/bank/friend Q for Bob, If it were me, probably not, most people I know already have one, or hate them. But Good point/Idea! Think also of the people who live OUTSIDE the U.S. where AC/PP and the like wont work for them.

    So, so far the options would be to write reports in a niche, gather a list and market to them or try the PPC direction. Can either one of these generate and keep generating $800/mo by the end of say This month?

    I like the article rewriting concept you mentioned Laptopdiva, but not sure if there is a way to sell any of them without a Pp acct.

    so what if you dont' have a bank account, bank account is needed to cash your check not to make money. So once you get a check(s), you can open one account using those checks.

    I did not have a single cent when I started out as a freelance graphic/web designer, I did the same. When I got my first check, I went to bank and open account with that check.


    hope it solve one of your problems

    I would buy a cheap prepaid phone with minutes to get accepted into cpa company/ies.
    Then I'd learn about craigslist (my personal choice), youtube, or torrents and possibly even join a private membership site to help with that process.

    Oh wait, that is prettymuch exactly what I'm doing.

    I would save the 500 bucks start working at mcdonalds...get a bank account and a car with insurance if possible..THEN start working your online ventures in your spare time until your doing good enough to actually support yourself without working a real job.

    I don't understand how you are going to get anything done without a phone. Anything that pays out via check will require a phone number, no? And everything else pays via paypal, yeh? But I guess you need a step by step?

    Buy a phone. Sign up for affiliate networks. Promote those using the 'bum marketing' tactics. Reap the benefits. It is old, tried, and true. It works. Stick with something that works.

    Heck...you have $500, buy a paypal account then outsource and flip. Find someone who will write you articles for like $1-2 and resell those for $4-5. Rinse and repeat.

    Good Point Enovator!

    Youngguns. lol - Would you be able to make $800 by months end starting from scrath again? Which craigs "way" would you recommend to start with?

    And Demiurge - Not a helpful answer. If you take the job you can't go back and try again. The chance is gone forever ( or at least the next 5 hamburger flippin years)

    If you really had to make it work, what would you do?

    Remember though, you already have accounts with several affiliate's - most will send a check

    Bum marketing works - sort of - but can it work fast enough to make you $800 in 30 days??

    * Now we have a prepaid phone. :)
