    Hey guys. One of my coaching club students put me onto this discussion recently that posed the question, "Best way to make $2000 in 30 days". The criteria is shown at the start of the post below. Now whilst not all of the ideas are good imo, there are some interesting spins in there and I believe (a) A newbie
    could certainly get a start from at least one of these and (b) It might give the older hands
    amongst us some food for thought on spinning one of these. Even though I would feel at this stage I have seen and done most of everything online, I still feel I can learn from stuff like this and point of fact I have personally put two into operation out of curiosity. So, have a read and a think, there is a veritable wealth of suggestions below. Its a long post though, just to be forewarned but well worth 20 minutes of your time I think. Disclaimer: May require workJ Its also too big to post in one part so I will be breaking it up

    Criteria for money making idea:

    1. It must be something you have actually tried and made money with.

    2. You have to post the time it took you and how much take home PROFIT you received from the

    technique.

    I'll be judging the techniques based on uniqueness, ease to implement, and time involved. If you

    don't have a money making idea, traffic generation techniques are acceptable as well, as long as

    you have actually generated a lot of traffic with the technique.

    1) Learn to play guitar
    2) Learn to sing and do it while playing
    3) Write some songs
    4) Record those songs
    5) Put them up for sale on a site call Bandcamp
    6) Drive traffic to that site

    Registered a domain name for a very popular niche. Before I was able to put up the site, got an

    offer to buy the name and sold it. Timeframe about 6 months.

    Check out jvnotify, look for an upcoming lauch within the next month. Register the domain of

    product + review. Create a wordpress site promoting the product. Build backlinks continuously.

    When launch day comes around you want to be in the top 3 of google.

    Time takes aprox 1 month with 20 mins a day work.
    Take home profit $920 but it brings in money every few weeks after the launch.


    Rank High on Google - March 24th, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    Got an exact-match .com domain name. Wrote a couple of blog posts, and got Google to index the

    site and wrote a couple more to get Google to see I'm adding fresh content. Got the site to rank

    as #2 for a 3 letter KW in 2 months. Have seen traffic go from 0 to 500/month in 2 months. Not

    much backlinking (2 links of related forums, and perhaps 5 social bookmarks). Have links on site

    to affiliate offers using no-follow tags (added only after Google indexed site). Cleared $240

    last month (all seo traffic). On track to get more than $400 this month. Will be adding Adwords

    traffic slowly (and only for KWs that my site doesn't show up for on 1st page of Google).

    Thanks for delivering non-pushy, content-full emails/posts.

    Hi Cash Creators
    One of the oldest money makers is haggling!
    It has lots of fancy names.
    It has one skill: negotiating from a place of certainty!

    If you know something about a product or service that is a little out there you can begin to

    separate your knowledge from mine. Keep separating until there is a sizable speciality there &

    you have what has become the mainstay of much of the IM haggling home pages.

    You have a market NICHE!!

    There are empires on the net that simply started out giving people a chance to separate

    themselves from everyone else. Look at ClickBank, PayDotCom & another little group that I can't

    quite remember the name of. It is something like e... eb... eB... !! No I can't remember.

    Back in the day I bought a domain name for $7.00 of a celebrity whos daughter was getting into

    the music business. The domain was of the daughter of one of the most famous wrestlers ever.

    They went on to have their own reality show. Im guessing you know who it was by now.

    I sold the domain name to them for $3500.oo

    Nice profit.

    I use this method.
    I research a common niche in Google.
    I access to Google Wonder Wheel from Settings.
    I build my Table of Contents from each branch of Wonder Wheel.

    I complete the e-book chapters connecting to the resources indicated by Google Wonder Wheel and

    I start to gather info.
    The e-book or report can be ready in 2 days.

    Sell it on Warrior Forum with three set of prices based on customers (for example $17 for first

    10, $27 for next 10 and $37 for the next 50.
    But if you want to add videos your price can go up !

    It works !

    I started article marketing for a product it took about 2 months to start seeing results I made

    3 sales in 3 days and continued to do so. even though I have stopped writing articles for this

    product I am not only still getting opt ins and traffic to that blog I am still making a sale

    each week of between 1 and 2 items and I am not doing anything to get them.

    Article marketing still creates tons of traffic as well as sales and it is free and it is easy.

    What more can I say.

    Opened up a Blogger account including brief research on keyword rich subdomain name, title tag

    and description (19 minutes). Developed a brief business plan not more than four pages (34

    minutes...I am a fast typer), including marketing plan . Focused on internal linking structure

    that linked related keywords from keyword list and related terms (i.e. latent semantic

    indexing), and used Joel Comms' Adsense Guide to accurately.

    Now take $100.oo Google Adwords credit and assuming a CPC value of 10 cents, that would give me 1,000 visitors to my new

    blog. To formulate my projected revenue i will use the stats for one day taken from my Google

    Account ??“ Here is the stats:
    Aug. 13, 2009 17 (impr.) 5 (cks) CTR: 29.41% eCPM $177.71 $3.02 (Total)

    Assuming similar results and a consistent CTR with a projected eCPM of ~$177, my net profit for

    24 hours using this equation is as follows:
    ROI = [(Payback - Investment)/Investment)]*100

    Now performing the calculation:
    ROI= $177-$100/$100*100%
    ROI= ~77%

    This also assumes that I can reach my target average of 1000 visitors per day and assumes that I

    can reach this key performance indicator every day.

    There are some serious flaws to this business plan but I do hope that demonstrate some

    creativity

    The beauty of this simple 'business plan' lies within the ease of application resulting from the

    duplicity and replication within the business model. Many of these tasks can be automated or

    outsourced. If it did not work, why are so many websites using adsense? This model just relies

    on one revenue source but can be rapidly expanded with ease once the performance of the keywords

    can be compared to such key performance indicators such as % conversions ??“ which may also

    include opt-ins, sign-ups, memberships, etc. as well as backend offers, upsells, downsells etc.

    which would be noted in the marketing plan.

    I made 1600.00 about a year ago for a launch selling a commercial RE course. Put up a blogger

    blog, squidoo page, submitted to Digg, stumble and "feedagg". Got top rank for product name and

    Persons name. Forgot about it until the check came.

    Sign up for a CPA network like Neverblue Ads. Find a good offer to promote. Take the URL to the

    offer and change it to a tinyurl. Sign up for several free, or paid, safelists and design an

    email to send them over the next few months. You can also purchase a domain to forward the offer

    to and use it in your emails as well.
    I used my own domain and created a subdomain on it to forward the offer to. After finding a good

    converting CPA offer, and sending my email containing my subdomain forwarding URL to several

    free safelists and 1 paid safelist, I made a profit of $500 in 4 months.

    I've spent more than 100 hours to create multimedia infoproduct how to create PowerPoint

    presentation in an hour or less (with body language and tips for giving presentation), even got

    ISBN number for it and for DVD (video) version.

    I sold less than ten for now, for about $650 but I intend to:
    - sell more after promoting to e-mail list I'm now importing from paid business CD-ROM directory

    (with legal consent from companies for first mailing, in my country),
    - offer it as a bonus to SEO multimedia infoproduct I'm prepairing,
    - use it as lead offer for coaching.

    But what's most important I've gone over my comfort zone and learned how to create videos with

    Another easy way to get quick sales:

    Think about service. Highly paying and wanted service. Web design, copywriting, SEO, writing ebooks, etc.

    Search for sites, where people are looking for services. Like Copywriter wanted, SEO, anything you want. Contact and ask how much they pay you. Some pay over $2000 for a simple web design[​IMG]. If they pay good...go to warrior forum or Craigslist. Lots of people there offering high quality service for really cheap price. If you find best for your job, ask for samples and portfolio, then contact the other side, and tell them to pay half first and half when job is done. And show them samples and portfolio. If he is happy..he will pay you half...you pay for the other guy and just wait, when job is done. Then hand it over and collect rest of the money.

    Personally made little bit over 2k in 3 weeks. 700 profit with 1 sale, 1400 with other. Not bad having $2000 average sale. Havn't done it anymore, as im interested in long term business, not quick sales.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Another is Youtube. Most watched videos. Clips with over 1 mln hits. Contact their owners and offer them money, to use your link under their video. You can get a deal as low as $25. Match your affiliate offer with video and you will make sales. A lot.

    Cant say how much i have made there, but i have had some nice days[​IMG]
