    I got the harsh news today during lunch. I was the only guy layed off. Apparntly there's not enough work to keep me going.I was thinking in the back of my mind how it's been really slow around the shop and maybe I could be layed off...... so I knew it was coming, just didn't think it was going to be so damn soon.

    ANYWAYS, it sucks, those of you who have been there know the stress of getting layed off and the spiral effect of not having a job and since I'm the big money maker in my family, our family income has dropped to less then $16000 a year.

    SO, as a frequent visitor here I'm always trying news things and "Trying" to make a go at making money online. As I mentioned in a post way back when, the only real success I had was with Craigslist. I made over $4000 in less then a month. It was good while it lasted and we almost quit our jobs in excitement over the amount of money we were making... and then it just got saturated and I was working 12 hours + and coming out with $50 or less for my work. So I dropped it and never had any success with anything since :(

    I've been browsing the forums fo ideas for months. But for some reason or another I havent been very successful, mind you, I WAS working a full time job....WAS. Now I have endless time on my hands...so to speak.
    Here's what I tried so far.
    I've tried PPC (I think I made $5 on that)
    I tried e-whoring ( Made zip zero nadda...yes, this from the same ewhore on cl and autoresponders on CL that made me $4000)
    I tried Ebooks ( uploaded to the torrent sites...same, zip zero nada)

    To conclude my lovely story, I have a job offer from a great company. The salary is over $60k a year starting off and great benefts. We have to relocate about 1000 kms away ,which, is no problem, and it's a beautiful location. BUT, the catch is, I need to have my Class 3 drivers license to get this job. And this job is only available in January and Februaury because they have 2 guys retiring and once those dates are gone by, then I'm outta luck. The Class 3 course costs $6000 and is 6 weeks long.

    So here I am desperatly in need of finding a "successful" way to make $6000 and myabe a little extra to get me through till January.

    Now I know alot of you will not disclose your methods and secrets, I'm not asking you to. I respect your methods and ideas. All I'm asking is let me help you in whatever ways I possibly can. I don'thave much time, It looks like I have maybe 2 or 3 months to get this money. If someone out there is generous and would like to help a family in need then drop me a pm or reply on here. I'd really appreciate it and would forever be grateful to you...both me and my fiance...and the dog and cat :rolleyes:

    I've never really written articles before and I don't think I would be very good at that.

    He's talking about buying articles from need-an-article.com and selling them on elance/ifreelance.

    I dont think that is going to make you the money you need tho.

    I'd suggest looking into cookie stuffin or something.

    i think the easyest money maker around is for sure ebay..
    not only for stuffing.. you could give that a go on a second account.

    but there are a million ways to trick people to visit ebay with your link. a lot of things are mentioned here already. most don`t make a fortune, but are easy, and 6k in 4 months is something that can be done for sure.

    one thing i did before was to find a popular car on ebay that was just listed, make a litle page about it as it was yours and you wanna sell it, then tell people to give it a look at ebay where you are selling it. use your rover link.

    than start posting like crazy on CL and other clasified sites with the car for sale.
    you will get clicks and some will convert.

    you won`t make 100 bucks an hour, but it will make you some cash. and there are a lot of other of these "tricks" around.

    takes a lot of work, but will get you paid.

    Thanks for that. Thats a freaking great idea. I never thought of using a ebay link for that stuff...... I guess my only concern is that CL will flag or ban the postings if I post multiple listings the same day in different states/cities. And that phone verification thing could be trouble if I get my account banned.

    My little youtube venture didnt quit work out as planned....BUT I am trying the domain selling thing.

    But, I think I might have hit a good domain name to resell

    thepokerbum.c*m

    $6K domain name ? yes...no....maybe ? lol

    well that ad probaly wont get flaged, since you actully try to sell something, even if it isn`t yours. but they don`t know that do they ;)

    and there are literaly houndreds of sites like it out there. go to dp and find somebody who will do it for you cheap. snowwhite did this at bhw, but don`t know if she still does. you could ask her.

    and those sites may make you only 20 bucks or something in the comming week. but you can pump out 10 different ones in a day easy.
    now you made 200 bucks in a day.

    hard work with no longterm advantage. but does put some emergency money in your epn account.

    Surely that rule doesn't count in a thread like this. How else could you answer the question if one of the answers is cookie stuffing? Maybe I am wrong.

    It shouldn't have come up in the first place, to be honest.

    "hey, here's a money-making idea. too bad you can't learn how to do it until you have 50/30"...

    And to be honest, I'm a bit tired of these sob stories. Seems like there's at least 3-4 a week now.

    Hey, it's nothing personal, but yes the sob story routine works wonders to get people to spill the beans on money-making methods that they otherwise wouldn't talk about. I'm not saying YOU are guilty of doing this, but there are definitely people on this forum that like to exploit other people's emotions for their own financial gain. And I've noticed it's been happening more and more here lately.

    "My father had a heart attack and I need money for his hospital bills..."
    "I lost my job and can't afford feed my baby..."
    "I need to make $10,000 to pay off a loan shark....... "

    I'm just tired of scumbags exploiting our members like this. If your situation is real, then I wish you the best of luck. If you had success with craigslist, then you should try it again and expand into other classified ads sites. If your niche is dried up, why not try another? How can you NOT have success with e-whoring/dating + CL? Also, there is TONS of freely-available information on this forum to help you earn the money you "need". There's no need to post a sob story to get people to help you out.

    If you need to make $3000 a month for the next few months to be able to get your training, I'd suggest you give up BH and just borrow the money from friends and family, because consistant money like that right off the bat just isn't very realistic. There may even be a "student loan" option from the school that's offering the training you need, I know there are several driving/trucking schools that offer that here in the US. If not, you may still qualify for private student loans from a bank.

    Just thought I would do a little update on here. .I've been very busy with one of the methods mentioned here on BHW...cough cough CL cough.
    I'm making about $XX a day. It's not much, it's all manual labour but it only takes a few hours a day. I have since talked to a few other people and have a few more ideas to work with. :)
