    Apologies in advance for the long post. This requires a small investment, time and some skills such as the ability to talk with your mouth, not your keyboard!

    This is not an IM method, but I am sick and tired of whiny bitches coming on this forum saying things like "Help I need $20 immediately" or "How can I get $150 in the next week"

    Well you can! Super easy and it doesn't have to involve McDonalds.

    Over the last couple of months things have gotten pretty tough in my line of business, (in fact the last few years have) I am in engineering (steel) and have been most of my life which, if you are from the UK you will know what a battering my industry has taken.

    Anyway, after a couple of bad investments and my business partner thinking our business is the bank of sturose, I have been left a little out of pocket. I could have come here and whined like a bitch begging for a method to make $10 a day or $20 for a pizza!:D (@CRT hope you got your money back)

    Instead I decided it was my problem, a novel idea for some of the noobs on here I know but there we have it. It was up to me to fix my temporary cashflow situation before it becomes permanent.

    So where is the method I hear you say, well it is simple really. First thing I did was shut down my laptop! This is a very important step, if you don't do this then the method won't work due to facebook, twitter, BHW addictions. I then went outside into the big wide world and ventured into my local town with no internet connection.:eek:

    I found that they actually have real shops and stores there with real people and real physical products! I was shocked, there is a life beyond the internet. I proceeded to the first discount store and began my search, I didn't even need Google to help me with this believe it or not. It was very strange not having Google tell me what products I should be looking at even though I was searching for something completely different.

    I decided my niche was going to be along the lines of what I know, metal products. So I headed to the hardware section and picked up some bulk packs of screws, nails, nuts, bolts, washers, hooks, hinges and various other items that were either loose for me to bag up or in huge bulk packs. For you guys from the UK Wilkinsons has a great pick and mix nuts, bolts, screws etc section and it's cheap!

    Now you will need some cash for this but even daddys credit card will do because you don't need to spend a fortune. I bought approx £30 of stock from about 5 different stores. Amazingly, I didn't even need to wait for them to be delivered, I could carry them out of the store in a bag.

    I then went back home. IMPORTANT!!! Do not turn on your computer at this point otherwise Google, Facebook, Twitter etc will all know what you are up to. They cannot know at this stage that you have discovered the secret world outside of the internet.

    I then went into my garage and proceeded to sort through what I had bought. I separated the bulk packs into smaller packets, enough for people to do simple DIY tasks like hang pictures and change door handles. Just some clear poly bags will suffice for this stage. Unfortunately you will have to do this part yourself, if you decide to hire an assistant you will be forced to pay minimum wage for your country/region. It's not like the internet where you can pay somebody on the other side of the world to do the job for $1 a day.

    This process took me a couple of hours but when finished I looked at my work and felt an enormous sense of satisfaction because I was now ready to move onto the final stage of my devious plan to prevent Google from ruling my life.

    So how is this going to make me money I hear you ask. Well quite simply, we are going to sell the smaller packs of items that we had discovered in the brick world beyond the front door. I simply set up a stall the next day at a bank holiday market which cost me £10 and placed my products in front of real people who were using their legs to walk, their hands to pick things up instead of type and their mouths to communicate instead of Facebook. Quite honestly I found it quite shocking that these people were still able to purchase items without a mouse in their right hand but there you have it.

    The absolute best part about this method is, even though it requires a little investment both in terms of time and money, PayPal did not grab my money and hold it for 21 days, eBay did not take 10% of everything I earned and nobody complained to me 3 days later that their package had not arrived.

    Fucking Unbelievable!!!

    Oh and I still have over half of my original stock and I made £65 on the day after deducting the cost of the initial stock I purchased and the cost of the stall. £65 a day isn't too bad now is it??

    Too lazy to run a stall for the day? By all means put the products on eBay and wait for orders to come in and let them take 10% of your cash and then let PayPal hold your money for 21 days. It will also take longer to achieve £65 a day!

    This post is meant to be a little 'tongue in cheek' but next time you see a post off some noob begging for a method to earn $5 a day because they have tried everything then you can point them in the direction of this thread.

    Oh and I have some stock to dispose of now. I managed to win a new contract so I will be busy on that for a short while.

    PS. £25 = approx $33
    £65 = approx $86

    Have fun guys and happy shopping. I doubt many will actually try this because the internet has made a lot of todays youth too lazy for physical work:rolleyes:.

    Haha, have to charge you extra for shipping, paypal fees and packaging!

    I actually had people asking for those type of bolts on the day and many other items I didn't stock. I could have made an extra £50-60 for sales I had to turn away.

    That is just crazy talk. I have never heard of such a thing.

    But how saturated is this? Do I have to apply my own twist?

    It won't work in my country. During holidays market, there are tons of small seller. They sell many kind of things and many sellers have the same items.

    Although my original post was rather sarcastic because of newbies joining the site and begging for 5, 10 or 20$$ within a few days there is no reason why you couldn't do it even if there are tons of smaller sellers.

    The market I had my stall at had around 400 sellers, many of them selling hardware items. It didn't stop me making almost as much in one day as most people aim for per day from internet marketing.

    My reasons for doing this was to raise some instant cash, I'm not suggesting this is sustainable I am simply proving that if you want/need some instant cash and you are prepared to go and get it you can.

    It's no different than IM. People sell the same stuff on thousands of sites. Does that stop them from getting sales? No.

    Someone, somewhere is going to buy from you. Remember that.
