    I realize that this will probably sound like a "Help me I need to make moniez" thread, but it's not.

    Here is the story....

    Basically, I found out today that my car just died. It was a 1995 Volvo wagon and the turbo is broken and the engine block cracked. So, it would cost at the least $4000 to fix it. At that price I may as well buy a new car.

    My dad is working as a teacher right now so he cant afford to help me at all, which means I need to come up with the money by myself to get a "new" used car. I need something around $3000-$5000 to be able to get a decent car. It would be nice to be able to get that money in the next 2-3 months. So that I can have the car for when my part time job starts up again in the spring.

    I have been on the online marketing scene for about 2 years now. I have READ a ton of stuff. So I know a lot, but I haven't really gotten out and tried too much stuff. I made about $1500 over the summer with a great passive Myspace method, which worked until the advertiser called me up and said my leads weren't converting to paid at all. So I had to stop that. Then I made about $2000 on craigslist with a really simple weight loss method. I posted about 10 ads a day and made that within 2 months. I was converting 1:12, but the offer I was running has been completely shut down and any new offer I try hasn't converted even though I have sent a couple hundred visitors. So I am still posting a couple times a week, but nothing is really converting. If someone could point me to a nice converting weight loss offer that would be awesome.

    The advice I need is where to go from here? Where should I focus my efforts?

    I'm thinking about like a general direction here. I considered making a couple mini niche sites promoting some other cpa offers. (Teeth whitening, biz opp, cell phone submits etc etc) Some of the $10+ per lead/sale kinds of things. But I really don't have too much experience link building. I guess article marketing is the easiest way. That just requires a good amount of work or outsourcing.

    I have thought about trying some other things on CL. I don't have the resources to do too much mailing though. However, I am only looking to make like $40-$100 a day, though more would be fine with me :) I have thought about some biz opp stuff maybe or switching to a different health/beauty niche.

    Facebook marketing also occurred to me. If you can get a group to go viral that could make you a couple quick thousand. The only problem is a really don't have too much experience with that. I mean I have a couple Facebook accounts and a couple groups. But my groups have 4000 or less members and my accounts have 500 or less friends.

    Basically I'm just looking for any help or advice anyone can give me. Not a specific method or anything, but like what direction you think it would be profitable to go in. Niche marketing, more CL, Facebook etc.

    Thanks BHW! Rock on :cool:
    Oh and sorry it's so long...

    I'm ready to take action. It would just be nice to have a direction to go in so I'm not flailing around wasting time...
