    I want to make some quick cash. I've got a plan, and it's rather simple...to do college kids' homework. It's finals time for the Fall semester, and so that means for a lot of people it's crunch time. I want to know where to find these people because they obviously won't be hanging out a sign that says "I need someone to do my work for me!" If it was that simple, I wouldn't be making this post.

    I want to target people with a lower-end price point so that it's attractive enough to generate some real interest. I'm thinking essays for $100, discussion boards for $50, and exams for $35. Considering that it's the end of the semester, I'd say that this price range is within most college students' budget. I just haven't figured out how to get the offer out there.

    I thought about putting flyers around a few college campuses, but that's a bit too risky. I don't want to cause any trouble for students, I just want to help out with those bothersome assignments and get paid for my time. So, how would you suggest I go about finding people who would be interested in my service?

    Do you think it would be smart to post my offer on a few college boards, and just work from there? Maybe put out a few posts on Twitter or Facebook?

    Go to www.reddit.com - probably the biggest community of lazy college students in the universe.

    Look in places where lazy kids would look.. google . I bet if you did 5 articles that had school specific names and locations you can rank for something like: Someone to do my homework in XXXX ,

    I second reddit. I'm curious how you would be able to do exams? Interesting idea, I have done an essay for $7 a page, but it almost wasn't worth it since the topic was about the evolution of genomes and quite a bit of research and time went into it.

    First of all where the hell were you when I was in college ???! (j/k :p )

    Seriously though, your biggest market you'll most likely find at junior colleges.
    Soooo word your idea in a fashion that get's the point across without being too obvious if promoting on campuses.

    A Facebook Fanpage might be a good start.
    Twitter
    Craigslist
    Youtube
    Instagram

    And so on...

    Basically anywhere they are.

    You might even just simply take out some ads on popular sites (including facebook if you can get away with it...) and go after your target market. Especially around big tests dates.

    Isn't it the case that lazy college students never made it to college because they're too lazy? Therefore - go to cities without colleges, and you'll find plenty of them.

    Try 9gag comments, I know a LOT of college kids waste far too much time on that site.

    I do a lot of research using Reddit, but I never thought about it for this purpose. I didn't really take it to be a big community of lazy college students either, lol.


    I did consider Craigslist, but I'm still trying to figure out where exactly to post.


    I'm going to try this one in a few minutes. I'll take a couple hours to whip up some articles, nothing fancy, and post them on some article directories. I guess that means I need to put up at least a simple landing page to catch the traffic. A short info page with some contact info should be sufficient I suppose.


    If the exams are online, then I could do them remotely. I have a passion for writing, so the essays aren't a whole lot of trouble. I could spend a half an hour reading up on the topic, and then write until the paper is done. I figured a flat fee would work better because it's straightforward, and there's no guesswork about word count and page count; I think those factors are kind of irrelevant.

    I'm really curious to see how things are going to work out with Reddit.
