Want fast money making ideas? How about making a fast $5 by doing a little service for other people?
It could be writing tweets, making a drawing, writing an article, create a logo, or where ever you have your best abilities. Do you have a large list of fans on Facebook? Let people give you $5 to ask them to join their fan page. Endless possibilities.
You can also profit by purchasing some cheap services here. I’m certainly going to pick some.
Anyway, here’s how it works.
Even if you have the most interesting page in the world, if you don’t attract people’s attention with a striking headline, nobody will ever read it.
So how do you come up with a eyeball sucking magnetic headline?
Eric Schechter has a nice tip from Greg Rollett about how to do exactly that. He buys magazines, and rewrites the headlines, grounded in the philosophy that if these magazines can survive the crises, they must be doing something right. This is how he does, exactly:
Let me ask you a simple question. To the left of this text, you see John Chow, who has a personal blog that went from 0 to $40,000 in a little more than two years.
Beneath, you see a picture of me:
Can you spot the difference?
One of my favourite movies is the French “La Vérité Si Je Mens! 2” (Would I Lie To You? 2) In the movie, you meet members of the Jewish community in France. One of the guys falls in love with a beautiful young woman, who’s father is a business man (played by Enrico Macias). He just gave away his other daughter, but his son-in-law cannot take over his business, because, as he puts it: “He’s a doctor, the poor guy”.
The short quote is an example of French humour, when it’s best. Nothing is explained about this phrase. You either understand it, or you don’t, when you watch the movie, and knowing that a lot of Jewish jokes are around the theme: “a son should either become a doctor or a lawyer”, this quote is even more fun.
How can this son-in-law have a dream occupation and yet be a “poor guy”?
If you’ve read famous bloggers like John Chow, you know that they earned a big part of their fame to their personality. You have to stand out from the crowd to get regular readers and loyal fans.
Paul Newman said it so well:
If you don’t have enemies, you don’t have character.
You might not want to go as far as to get enemies, but if you already have character, and don’t dare to express that character on your blog or home page, use this little workaround to help you.
Have you ever read that if you can just figure out (or follow this system – or use one of these money making ideas) to make $1 per day, then you just have to rinse and repeat, and if you make one new site daily, you’ll make $30 per day in a month?
Well, it sounds nice, and it’s possible, of course, but only on one condition – you have to know what to rinse and repeat.
Stephen King agrees with me on this one. (Or is it me, agreeing with him?) You have to have a target audience, an “ideal reader”. And then stay consequent in your choice.
If you’re selling affiliate products, I’ll even give you a priceless tip about how to find out exactly who your audience is. I got this tip from the Wealthy Affiliate forum, from Travis (Bum marketing).
So let’s jump right into it…
I’m not here. Really! It’s Saturday, and I’m relaxing. No business at all. No writing blog posts.
But yet, I managed to get this blog post online a Saturday, and I even Twittet about it both @ another Tweeter, and as a normal Twit.
Am I a super-intelligent omni-potent genious?
Well, maybe, in all modesty, but no, I have to be honest. I just learned how to make some things work automatically.
If you don’t have a mailing list yet, but want to build one as cheap as possible, nothing beats “free”. Unfortunately, there could be many disadvantages with something gratis, and it often ends up costing much more than a paid product.
A while ago, I joined a mailing list, and was immediately sent to another page, from which I could import the mailer’s address card directly to my address book.
That impressed me! A totally win-win-situation, since I will be able to receive my mail without having to go to the spam folder first, and he gets a lot more mails out to his target audience.
Now, I must confess that I’m a tiny bit curious of nature (HUSH!) so when I could see the name of the auto-responder service beneith the address card, I could help myself.
