    I’m a pretty good programmer. I can code in pretty much any language. Good marketer too, understand pretty much anything in marketing (but have only worked for companies before, never myself)

    I’m in a life situation where I need to earn some money, FAST! My focus over the next few months is basically to become financially independent and to gain very fast passive income, where I can add the time/effort as it grows.

    I’m not looking for any books, or get rich quick schemes. I’m hoping to find out the quickest tried and tested methods, that work right now - with established systems (Google adwords, SEO, Email, Social, Social ads etc.)

    Anyone who can help me draw up a shortlist of where to spend my time, to help me get started?

    Lots of love to you all :)

    No, she would not be my choice. Realistically though, I'm asking if someone can help me cut through the crap. I'm not a newbie, but need some help to manage my future time effectively. Hence, the question on the forums.

    If you really knew everything about marketing, you wouldn't have made this thread in the first place.

    You want it all, you want it now and Bar Refaeli is ugly for you.

    Man you must be Brad Pitt or something.

    Then you should know, no quick ways and that means it takes times to learn those ways and why should someone spend his costly time to tell you how to do it?

    You, like me and everyone else have to spend a LOT of time in the beginning to get started.

    This is not the welcoming response I expected from a place that calls itself a community. You have twisted my words to make a different meaning. Well done, I hope you feel proud of yourself today.

    Moving on: I did not say I know everything about marketing at all. I said exactly the words "I can understand pretty much anything about marketing", meaning if something is explained to me, I will be able to understand it. Not, I know everything, there is nothing you can tell me.

    Jeez, what caused you people to be like this? Are you not happy with your lot?

    Write a good WordPress contest plugin and sell it for a flat fee. Everyone is selling monthly subscriptions to manage contests. Honestly software that can be sold for a one time fee vs a subscription could be very lucrative.

    Not true, there are some quick ways I've taught people in the past, and they made good money out of them. It's about helping others. You know what forums are generally for?

    If I had $1 for everyone who asked this question, I'd hoard my money like a selfish scourge and laugh at all of you for not monetizing this.

    @OP start a website where people can sell their dirty socks and underwear on auction. Like eBay for perverts.

    Very helpful stuff, I've been thinking about WP a lot lately, and maybe this, or something else can be lucrative - thanks this is exactly the kind of steer I'm hoping for - hope you have a great day!

    OP you said "My focus over the next few months is basically to become financially independent and to gain very fast passive income ..." , if it was easy to create passive income and become financially independent in a few months, we would be sitting around drinking Cristal getting tugged off by super models.

    Yes ofc, forums are about sharing information but yet you have to spend time to read a lot, do a lot, even if there is a method that will earn you money (there are several on this forum) will still take time to implement everything, set things up, wait for those to catch up (or not) that is what i mean.

    For example, the dude above said write a wp plugin. Sure it's nice, but thousands of people are doing is and many have good reputations so they will get more traffic and then you come with no reputation, trying to sell what everything else is already selling so you need to promote your product all over the place, which takes time.

    Real quick ways are black hat ways but they all got risks.

    Not me. I've got nothing to tug and eff supermodels. I'd be covered in adorable Asian men and hot Irish guys with accents. And maybe Tom Hiddleston. He seems like a whore.

    Actually, the person who answered this gave an example (more than anyone else has given in this forum). The example contained a piece of information that was incredibly useful (and not part of the main answer) - that using one time vs subscription fee is where good developers are competing at the moment. This is what forums are about. We can empower each other by sharing, not by shaming...

    And BTW just because I have an account that doesnt have much history, doesnt mean that I have no history - if you know what I mean ;)

    I'm looking for some quick ways to use my skillz to get a small amount of money - not to become elon musk overnight! I doubt most people have the programming capability of ME, so I'm asking if you were in my situation - what would you do? Obviously there are going to be some people who don't know what to do, so the best thing in this case might be to SAY nothing at all?

    Can you scrape content ? (millions of rows)
    Do you know SASS / flexbox ? (for responsive / mobile first design)
    Do you know HTTP protocol / can consume REST API's ?
    Can you model a database with relationships ?
    Can you use a framework like laravel, django, or pyramid ?

    What about............

    Do a pornsite. With on page SEO. Add social share buttons (add this could do the trick). disqus comments on every permalink. Add download buttons.
    Scrape the whole pornhub. Reupload content to cloud hosted providers. Or even easier, just use embed codes. And insert videos in your shiny pornsite.
    Promote it on forums / reddit / tumblr / facebook (churn) and other adult tubes.
    Profit !

    Create scripts to maintain your models alive, discard dead videos, automate scraping...


    I already started doing this... But messing with sessions, to control video views per user/ip, upvotes and downvotes, and so while doing many to many relations, polymorphic relations... It's quite time consuming... So I'll be doing something faster/easier. Then continue with my own tube development.
