    Well I am just waiting to accepted to a CPA, so in the meantime, I just am trying to figure out a way to make at least or around $70/day online or offline.

    Here are some ideas I have tried/ or thought about trying so far:

    - Websites/mobile pages/facebook social media pages (offline almost every biz in my city has one or is not interested, so I am still trying to land a client)l, If anyone has any google scrape tools or something that can help me out, please let me know.) I've cold called, face to face, and emailed my ass off lol.

    - Fiverr (making money off it, just not everyday and not alot)

    - Articles (after work I make about $4 a day).

    - Ebook (I have a idea, just dunno where would be the best place to sell it besides wf (I dont have a account there) ), and then again, I would sell it for around $12.

    -Video testimonials - I got a few, but they wanted more bang for their buck every time.


    - Selling food - I sold like 3 cakes so far, but the problem was after sales, I made barely gas money since the grocery store is far away, plus the labor and time put in each pie took forever.

    I thought about site flipping or dropping shipping too, I just dont really know how to go about that, and time is not exactly on my hands since I work.

    I also thought about finding someone who does fantastic SEO and wouldn't mind having me sell the service if the pay is good. I tried this in another forum, and when I landed my first customer, the seo crew ran, I got burned.


    So there's my ideas. I need some better ones, or jobs I can do online like organizing files or such. I'm really open to all ideas.



    Please omit:

    -Lawn Mowing
    -Selling Mary Kay, Avon, or anything like that
    -Getting a real job
    - Any bs idea that really doesnt work

    Every item you listed that you've been doing, could be done more efficiently by you, or outsourced to individuals (not 'teams'). Committing to write 4-5, not one article a day from several sources can be the difference between $4 a day and $20 bucks a day from that direction.

    You could hire somebody to write the ebook at $5 dollars a page or per 400 words (I usually charge $4/pg), and/or to set up a minisite to promote it as a site or blog. Email can be easily ignored, so you probably do have to call or walk in to 50 or more companies a week, to get your offline site offer accepted by 2-3 businesses a week. Think through how to improve what you are doing, not just list all the things you merely dipped your toe into.

    This is the line that really stood out in your post: "There's my ideas. I need some better ones."

    You don't actually need 'better' ideas. You just need to pick one of those areas you've already highlighted and focus all your attention on it, instead of flitting around between 10 different options. The LAST thing you need is more or 'better' suggestions.

    As you already work a full time job, it's fair to assume that your time is limited, so realistically it's foolish to try to embark on more than one project at once. Pick ONE of those things you mentioned: eg, Ebooks. If you were to focus all your free time over the next two weeks into creating a killer ebook on a subject you understand or can research thoroughly, that would be far better and more productive than messing around chasing little Fiverr gigs.

    You mentioned 'selling cakes', (which sounds to me like it would be hard to scale up into something worthwhile), so I'm assuming these are cakes you have made yourself.

    Could you turn THAT IDEA into an ebook...? Jazz it up a bit with 'sales spiel' and pitch it on WF or wherever as a simple low-cost offline business plan with low competition?

    (Chapter 1) Identifying a market for offline produce. (ie. cakes)
    (Chapter 2) How to manufacture your own product. (ie. Baking them)
    (Ch. 3) How to find initial clients. (How did YOU sell the 3 you sold?)
    (Ch. 4) How to publicise your service. (Classified ads, flyers, word of mouth, etc)
    (Ch.5) How to expand. (Outsource cake production / establish distribution in other towns, etc)

    You could sell your "cake biz" ebook both to the muppets on the Warrior Forum (as a 'turnkey business'), OR as a JV. (ie, give them a cut for marketing your book on their own sites). Or launch it via Clickbank.

    It's the sort of weird little niche that could do very well, if you know what you're talking about (or can at least sound convincing.)

    i would recommend just getting a PLR ebook, renaming the title and selling it on the warrior forum or digital point (over there people will buy anything)
    if u want one i could give it to you thru PM

    I agree with SneakySnake that you need to focus on the ideas you already have. I mean they aren't bad ideas at all so you don't really need new ones but one thing that has been working for me recently in the offline-social media world has been using Places to target smaller towns around my city (I live in a high population area so know the feeling of everyone already having what you are selling).

    By targeting smaller demographics you're able to reach out to people that these larger companies don't even know exists. You also get the benefit of speaking with business owners who had no idea they even needed your service. But you know what they do know?... They know what FB is... They know what Google is.. and they know they want to be there. Just an idea.

    Just focus on your favorite one and do some hard job, see what happen.

    Honestly, stop looking for the next big thing -I assume that's what you're looking for- and focus on all the ideas you have. I personally write for clients. It takes about 3-5 hours of my time daily. But the good thing is that I can often get 10 articles written in that time. Since I write for $8-$10 per article, I earn a lil' more than $70 ;). So, think about making the ideas you have work first. Otherwise, I can guarantee that you'll just keep going around in circles.

    ok, so I was thinking with a friend after reading everyone's post.

    We collaborated and decided to make a really really good ebook, I dont like to brag, but the idea is there. If I wasn't working, this could bring in probably $100/day with 2 methods, plus it could bring in long term customers. No blackhat involved either, but doing a little blackhat could really help :).

    But I just need help with trying to market it? I know people say DP and WF, I just got a DP account, registered at WF too, and decided to make a basic squeeze page. This ebook also is not for small business either, but almost any individual that can read a book could do it.

    So thats my question to you guys, what forums in dp, and other places could I sell it at?

    If the mentioned ebook has such a killer idea, what's holding you back from using it?

    I suggest you learn what you can about SEO, keyword research, etc and just build your business models from there. Trust me its the best way to go, you can easily make $100 per day or more from that point on!

    Create the book first. Strike while the iron's hot. The best writing always comes when you get your ideas down quickly. If you waste the next 2 or 3 weeks worrying about EXACTLY which specific bit of which forum you're going to sell it in before you've even started writing, then you risk losing your focus and your creative fire. Momentum is everything.

    Get it written. THEN worry about the specifics of marketing it.

    If the idea genuinely is as good, solid & revolutionary as you think it is, then finding a place to sell the finished product will be child's play.

    Ok for everyone, the ebook is done. And someone said why dont I use this method myself if its so good? Because I live so far from the supplier source, that once I pay for gas, its more like $25, and I would order it online, but I cant really find a reliable source.
