    From time to time, threads pop up that say things like "I need a quick $200" or "does anyone have a method that can make me a quick $50?"

    This is implying that there are methods that can be used in an emergency to make quick money that cannot be used at other times. It's like when you're playing a videogame or RPG and you're about to get killed so you use some special weapon to restore your life or damage all enemies or whatever.

    Unfortunately, there is no IM equivalent of that. If there was a method to make "a quick $200 in 24 hours," or whatever people ask for, then people would just do that every day and make $1k per week or $52k per year. That's more than most people make, and that's definitely more than most noob IMers make. Hell, that's more than most experienced IMers make.

    And let's not forget rule #1, that profitable methods DO NOT get shared. So even if there was a super quick urgent last-minute hp restoring money-making method, no one who is using it is going to share it with you.

    Note that when I say "profitable methods DO NOT get shared," I mean methods that are actually profitable, not hypothetical bullshit like "WRITE ARTICLES WITH AFFILIATE LINKS IN THEM AND MAKE $500 A DAY LOL!" Is that possible? Yes. Is anyone doing it? No. And is the person who shared it doing it? Hell no.

    When you have a profitable method, you guard it with your life to preserve your market share. You don't share it with your e-friends on internet forums because if it actually worked and other people started using it, you would lose your market share and make less money.

    And btw, from this logic you can extrapolate (correctly) that forex and trading robots/programs also don't work. If you had a trading system that made you a significant amount of money per year, why would you need to sell it for $79? So other people can share in the wealth? Or because it's bullshit and in fact your only income is coming from selling it because you sure as hell don't trade it yourself (because it doesn't work). Remember, if it worked, you're making 6 figures easily... do you really give a shit about a $79 sale here and there? Of course not. Because you sit on the beach all day while your magic ninja Forex robot makes you MAD BANK YO!!1!111one!!

    Wrong...there are methods where you can make $500 - $1000 within 24 hours from the beginning, to the end, if you know what you are doing. I have seen CL campaigns go that high, instantly. FB Fan/Like Pages have drarfed that figure. So to say it can't be done, is straight up wrong.

    If so, why not do those methods every day? $500-1,000 per day.

    People do implement these methods every day, but unless your operation is seamless and 100% fault tolerant, you can't keep it up forever. Eventually there will be something like a pva shortage or fan page change that will kill your revenue. Doesn't mean you won't get back up to where you once were, or that the amounts you make during those brief high points isn't worth it, it's just means it's not a stable stream of income like other things can be.

    These types of methods are not necessarily a quick buck, because even though revenue can skyrocket overnight, it is unlikely you will be able to do that without some extensive experience marketing in that area first and possibly some pricey software to go with it.

    There definitely are ways to make go from $0 to $200 in a day. They won't be found in DP ebooks or WSOs, and they can be pretty black. Probably not something that I would be comfortable rinsing and repeating every day.

    I agree with you though there really is no such thing as easy money. You have to put in the hours for it to pay off.
