Steps


Sell Something

  1. 1
    Sell things you no longer need. Dig out that old guitar you never play, those CDs you don't listen to anymore, or your antique toy collection. Go to the pawnshop, put an ad on local internet classifieds, or hold a yard sale in front of your house or on a busy street corner (just display the item with a big sign announcing the ridiculously low price). Price items at half of what somebody would be able to buy them for anywhere else, and you may be able to sell them within an hour or two.

    • If you don’t want to part with your CDs or DVDs, burn yourself copies (or even just back them up in digital format on your computer) and then sell the originals. Do not sell the copies!
    • Consider whether or not to sell items online at auction websites like eBay, or more generalist sites like Amazon. If you do, choose a fast end time for the auction or trade, or choose "buy it now" to encourage a swift turnaround. However, if you want cash in your hands quickly, you might want to arrange a sale with someone locally.
  2. 2
    Sell crafts. If you're a dab hand at making something quickly that people want, do so and sell it either online (sites like Etsy are great for handmade goodies) or at local craft fairs or other community-based sales.
    • If you don’t have time to make anything fancy, break glass bottles of various colors, put them through a rock tumbler, and sell bags of it as beach glass. Bits of frosted glass like this look great in clear vases to prop up dried flower stems, for example. You can also sell something you find growing outside. Pressed wildflowers, dried vines, branches, or Chinese lanterns, or even long/large pinecones can fetch a tidy sum if you sell a lot of them individually.
  3. 3
    Sell stock photos. Stock photos are relatively easy to take and, once you’ve posted them to your stock-photo account, can make money fairly passively.
  4. 4
    Sell scavenged valuables. If you have a metal detector, go to public places (especially parks, beaches, and other areas where people are likely to drop something unnoticed) and look for jewelry and other goods.
  5. 5
    Sell things walking about the roadside. Entrepreneurial sorts sell things like cold drinks on hot days or hot nuts in winter. But it can be dangerous work and it may be illegal, so check the laws and watch the traffic with great care. A safer option is a roadside stall, where people have to park the car and come and see your wares.
  6. 6
    "Donate" plasma. Plasma is a component of blood, and the process is similar to donating blood. You're not permitted to actually sell your plasma, but you can be compensated for your time spent donating (and essentially, it's like selling your plasma). Your blood is drawn, the plasma is separated, and the red blood cells are returned to your body. In the United States, you can make US$20-30 per visit and give plasma twice a week, but you must weigh at least 110 pounds, be between the ages of 18 and 59, and be in good health.[1] Many college students do this to make extra cash.[2] If you haven't been to the doctor in a while, this may be a good way to get a free health checkup.[3]
  7. 7
    Sell your hair. If your hair is healthy, untreated, and longer than 10in (25cm), you can sell it for hundreds of dollars – or possibly thousands if it’s a superb length and color.
  8. 8
    Flip products. Flipping is simply buying something and then selling it for more. Some people flip items by investing a lot of time and effort into repairs, but it’s also possible to flip simply by finding good deals.
    • Flip web domains. Research keywords, topics, or industries that are trending, buy relevant domain names, and sell them to interested parties. Watch for businesses that open up in your area, snag that domain name before they do, and offer to sell it to them (for a reasonable price – or you’ll risk sabotaging the deal and ending up with nothing). People who get good at this can actually make a nice income from it – or occasionally strike it rich by buying a name out from underneath a big player.
    • Flip thrift-store, yard-sale, and police-auction purchases. Even if you don’t know the first thing about jewelry or antiques, sometimes being the first one to show up is all it takes to find a steal.
    • Flip wholesale items. If you can get a deal on wholesale items (especially if you know or are willing to make friends with a wholesaler), selling them individually online – even for only a few dollars more apiece – can really add up.
  9. 9
    Open a lemonade stand. Especially if you're a kid, a lemonade stand or baked goods stand can bring in good money in one day. If the lemonade isn't selling, or you want to diversify, sell cookies and brownies as well. The important thing here is to find a good location, like the main entrance to an apartment building, outside a shopping center, on a busy corner near your house, or outside one of your parents’ workplaces (if you're a kid; otherwise you might get in trouble).

Make Money Online or On Your Phone

  1. 1
    Find small paid tasks via apps. There are several money-making apps including WeReward, CheckPoints, and GigWalk that will either pay you for doing marketing tasks (ex. scanning products at a grocery store) or connect you with someone who wants a more extensive project accomplished.
  2. 2
    Fill out online surveys. These usually only pay a few dollars apiece, but they are also short and require very little effort. Read How to Make Money with Free Online Surveys for more information.
  3. 3
    Enter sweepstakes. By choosing sweepstakes carefully, you can increase your likelihood of hitting the jackpot (or at least getting a few useful freebies that you can sell, as mentioned above). Search the internet––there are even internet databases, some free and some by subscription only, that can clue you in to hundreds or thousands of sweepstakes. Sweepstakes with smaller prizes can be great because you generally have a more realistic chance of winning. Don't, however, waste your time entering a sweepstakes for a prize you don't want and can't easily sell for a good profit. Enter as many times as possible. The more times you enter, the better your odds. It's as simple as that. Before you send in a million entries, however, make sure you know how many entries the rules allow you.

Recycle

  1. 1
    Recycle bottles and cans. Host a bring-your-own-beverage party and when the party’s over, gather all the bottles and cans and turn them in for cash; if you live in a state with a bottle or can deposit system, you may be able to get 5 or 10 US cents per container. You can also go looking for them in trash cans or along busy roads, especially rural ones.
  2. 2
    Scrap a junk pile. Everyone knows you can turn bottles and cans into cash by bringing them in to be recycled, but other metals such as scrap steel (worth anywhere between 1 or 2 cents per pound) or as copper or aluminum (worth considerably more) can also fetch good prices.[4] If you've got a big pile of scrap in your backyard, own a junked camper or other vehicle, or know of an illegal dumpsite, you can sort and sell it.
  3. 3
    Scrap a worthless computer. Computers are full of valuable metals (ex. tower cases are usually made of steel and/or aluminum, plus the CPUs, RAM, motherboards, and PCIs all contain gold). If possible, amass a good pile of these parts (offer to take outdated computers off the hands of a building or school doing considerable upgrades or find junked computers in the fee ads, for example) and sell them in bulk, which will make you more money. Don’t scrap good computers; what you get for the scrap probably won’t be as much as you get for components in working order.[5]
  4. 4
    Hunt for pre-1982 pennies. These contain considerable amounts of copper (whereas newer ones are alloyed with zinc to cut costs) and are worth more than a cent apiece. Buy rolls of pennies at the bank, sort them to find older coins, then return the ones you don’t want. Read How to Hoard Copper Pennies for more information.
  5. 5
    Hunt for pre-1964 silver half dollars. These are 90% silver and are worth more than fifty cents apiece. As with pennies, buy rolls of silver dollars at the bank and keep only the most valuable ones. Read How to Find Silver Half Dollars for more information.

Become a Moving Advertisement

  1. 1
    “Wrap” your car in an advertisement. There are companies with bumper sticker programs as well.
  2. 2
    Wear t-shirts, clothes, costumes that advertise a business. In addition to receiving a free t-shirt, you can get paid for every day that you wear the shirt to a public, conspicuous place.
  3. 3
    Get a temporary tattoo on your forehead, a pregnant belly, or other body parts. Auction off a body parts for advertising space to the highest bidder. [6][7]

Do Odd Jobs

  1. 1
    Find focus groups in your area. Monitor local postings or search a site like FindFocusGroups.com to find a focus group in your area that you are eligible to participate in. Check frequently; though the pay tends to be excellent, they are less frequent than many other opportunities.
  2. 2
    Board someone’s pet. Find a friend or a friend-of-a-friend who’s going out of town and offer to take care of their pet while they’re gone. Professional boarding places tend to be very expensive (not to mention impersonal and intimidating for a pet), so your cozy little house or apartment may seem like a very nice alternative. Around the holidays, pet-boarders fill up quickly, meaning you can probably charge more.
  3. 3
    Consider day labor. There are employment agencies that specialize in this type of arrangement, and you can get paid at the end of the workday. The jobs you find through an agency can vary, but are usually in construction, factories, offices, and manufacturing. An alternative to finding day labor is to go where other day laborers meet (usually street corners or parking lots) and wait for employers (building contractors, landscapers, home owners and small business owners).
    • Check your local newspaper or internet classifieds to find quick labor gigs, like painting, mowing, or moving work. Amazon Mechanical Turk is reliable and has lots of postings, but the pay tends to be low.
    • Consider whether or not to go through an agency. If you go the non-agency route, you might get paid in cash – but keep in mind that less formal arrangements could result in your not getting paid or, worse, getting injured without any kind of compensation.
    • Don't be shy about doing odd jobs. Lawn-mowing, babysitting, hedge-trimming, dog-walking, house-sitting, and de-cluttering can all serve as quick ways of getting cash.
  4. 4
    Become a street performer. If you can dance, play music, mime, sing, or tell jokes, you can probably get some cash by performing in public. But don't do this unless you are actually good at it. Put together a good act and find a place to perform. Give people a dose of live entertainment, and hopefully they'll reward you with tips.
    • If there is a group of you trying to find quick money, put together a quick skit for a bit of street theater .
    • Sometimes you can combine something for free with a request for a donation "as wished". For example, give out free hugs but suggest to people that a donation would be appreciated. Don't push it though!
    • Always check the bylaws before performing in a public space.
  5. 5
    Panhandle. A panhandler is a person who depends on the spontaneous charity of strangers for their survival. If you really need the cash, you might swallow your pride and decide to ask for help. Make a sign, find a good location, ask politely for money, and say thank you. A sign that is witty or details something interesting is more likely to have people stop and help than one filled with a litany of complaints about being down and out.
    • Cyberbegging is becoming increasingly popular, and there have been some amazing success stories, but these are the exception rather than the rule. While there are some sites on which you can beg just by putting up a brief ad, if you're looking to make any substantial money you'll probably have to build your own site and invest the time and money into it to make it successful. Moreover, cyberbegging really annoys some people and you may get bad social media feedback.
    • Be sure that panhandling or begging is permissible where you live.

MLM Marketing MLM Marketing Serious about taking your network marketing business to the next level?
Then you must master the art and science of mlm marketing, sales and promotion.
Because without an effective mlm marketing system in place designed to attract a steady stream of new potential customers and business builders on a consistent basis – you really don’t have a business. You have a hobby.
So let’s roll up our sleeves and get busy, shall we?

MLM Marketing Revealed

7 Inside MLM Marketing Secrets

Master the art and science of mlm marketing and you can literally write your own ticket to success. If fact, my goal here is to help you and your team start to generate over 100 free mlm leads each and every day for your business and get paid even is they hot prospect do not join your team.
The key is to focus on building a profitable network marketing business, not just a downline.
So what does that mean? It means learning how to create multiple streams of income from one massive mlm marketing funnel so you get paid simply from the process of marketing… regardless… even if no one ever joins your primary business.

MLM Marketing System Secret #1

Understand mlm marketing and mlm prospecting are not the same. Prospecting pushes, marketing pulls.
Prospecting is where you make the intitial contact to see is a person might be interested in learning more about your products, your company or your opportunity. Marketing is designed to attract people who have a problem to see if you have a solution they can benefit from bytaking advantage of it.
So to build a huge network marketing business fast you should strive first and formost to put together highly effective mlm marketing system – both online and offline.

MLM Marketing Secret #2

Think leads. MLM leads are the name of the game, and you should focus on building a list.
So it is absolutely critical that you get set up with a commerical autoresponder service like aweber or getresponse because the big money is in the list because this business is all about building and maintaining relationships.
Because the reality is not everyone will be ready to do business with you today, but if you stay in contact and continue to provide value over time – many will wind up purchasing your products or joining your team in the future.

MLM Marketing Systems #3

The best mlm marketing system are attraction marketing systems where the plan is to provide high value content designed to effortlessly attract potential customers and prospects with a problem you have the solution for.
Remember, mlm marketing is pullling people into our funnel. How do we do that? We find a target marketing and then tune into radio station WIIFM:
What’s In It For Me?
Because the bottom line is you can have virtually everything you want in life if you seek first to help other people get what they want. So make sure you design all of your marketing system to attract business by giving high value first. Give offen and give freely.

MLM Marketing #4

Lead with funded proposals to create multiple streams of income.
A funded proposal is when you offer a tool, training or software that requires purchase on the front end. In other words, you attract people with a problem an offer a solution that pays you a nice commission. This is a the heart of “building a business, not just a downline.”
If you think about prospecting where you buy a network marketing leads, pick up the phone and connect with them to see if they might have in interest in learning more about your opportunity and they say “No” – what to you have? Nothing, and you’ve wasted your dime.
By leading with a tool or a solution in your mlm marketing efforts you can earn money regardless if anyone decides to join your mlm deal or not. Even better, by creating multiple streams of income – very often – these extra commissions will be more than enough to fund and finance a massive sales, marketing and promotional effort.

MLM Marketing System Secret #5

The goal of any mlm marketing campaign is to make a personal connection. All the money in this business is made by connecting with people, directing them to a simply presentation and following up to collect a decision.
Spnsoring and recruiting is where you will find your fortune in the industry and is exactly where you should be spending 80-90% of your available time. So the idea is to build a mlm marketing machine that spits out leads like an out of control vacuum cleaner so you can spend the MAJORITY of your time sponsoring and recruiting.

Super MLM Secret #6

Leverage time-tested mlm lead generation systems proven to work. Advertising is like having a super salesperson in print. So if you use a proven system you don’t have to waste your precious time building web sites, setting up blogs or doing any of the other time-sucking activities that don’t make you any money.

Final MLM Marketing Secret #7

The key to making big money is in any business is to find top leaders who are already producing the result you want – find out what they are doing and how they are doing it – then simply do the same exact thing.
We used MLSP to generate over 1900 leads, earn thousands of dollars, and sign up a boatload of new people in our primary network marketing business.
Now it’s your turn.

MLM Marketing Plan

What is a MLM Marketing Plan? And do you have a marketing plan for your network marketing business? I define one as a game-plan covering how you will market your business opportunity. I’ve found that the most successful network marketers have a marketing plan for their business. In other words, they have a strategy to reach their target market. They can create their own strategy through trial and error or copy a competitor’s strategy.
A good marketing plan must:
1) Identify your target market or ideal candidate
2) Provide lots of information about your ideal candidate, such as the books they read, where they hang out, how they spend their money, the products they buy and any other helpful information
3) Outline different ways to reach the target market, such as publications, newspapers, internet websites, etc.
4) A way to test the results
Once again, these are the four components of a good marketing plan, in my opinion. To get started, here’s what you can do. First and foremost, you must identify your target market. In the network marketing industry, your target market is people currently involved in network marketing, people formerly involved, or people actively looking to get involved in network marketing.
Now that you know your target market, you must study your “ideal candidate.” For instance, what questions do they have? What books do they read? What websites do they visit? Once you have this information, you can move to the next step.
Your next step in your marketing plan is to determine at least two different ways to reach your ideal candidate. For instance, you might want to consider online or offline. Two examples include advertising in a network marketing magazine and advertising on a high traffic network marketing site.
Your final task is to roll out your MLM Marketing Plan. I recommend you start with one strategy at a time and constantly measure your results. Continue to make small improvements and keep testing your results. Once you find something that works, you can roll out a major marketing campaign.
In conclusion, to succeed in network marketing, you need a MLM Marketing Plan. Your plan must identify your target market; it must give you helpful information about your target market and give you several different strategies to reach them. Finally, it must provide an effective way to measure your results.

Some advice on MLM (Multi Level Marketing) deals


Some advice on MLM (Multi Level Marketing) deals
such as Amway, Shakley, Herbalife, Nu Skin, etc.


bullet By: Rabbi Eli Teitelbaum
Before you join an MLM such as Amway, Shakley, etc. you'd better do some careful homework
1) If your joining because you desire to sell the product they provide then better check out how many others are peddling the very same product, how easy it is to sell, what are the potential earnings and how much time will be required. Never take the word of the person trying to sell it to you. Better do your own research!
2) If you are joining in order to resell it to others then its just another illegal pyramid scam and either you will wind up losing your money or the others you sell it to will eventually lose their money. Think about "Lifnei iver lo si'tain mich'shal". (Note: MLM'S become illegal when the emphasis is on recruiting sales people to sell the distributorship to others and not the sale of the product).
3) Don't be misled by the false claims that this is an easy way to get rich quickly. MLM's make these claims in order to sucker you in. Hundreds of thousands of people that have invested in Amway and other MLM schemes, have learned the hard way that there is no golden treasure at the end of the rainbow. In a profile article on Amway in Forbes magazine, it was reported that the average Amway distributor earns a gross profit of around $780 a year. Less than 1% earned a total of $14,000 a year in gross income. As CBS concluded "the company sells hope not soap".
4) MLM's have been around for many years and have been involved in many law suits by people who have lost their entire life savings. Before getting involved, better read up on the volumes of articles on this subject. Read the book entitled "False Profits" (Fax 704-334-0220). Remember! Not all that glitters is gold!
5) Most people misrepresent their true income in order to entice others to join. They prey on some of the most gullible and most financially troubled people in our society. Careful investigations have shown that its all bluff and lies and the only ones becoming rich are the companies themselves. One of the worst MLM's to have hit the market in recent years is JewelWay. The company has now been forced by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) to return $5,000,000 to those that have lost more than $1,000 each. Since there are more than 150,000 such people, this means that each one of them will get all of $35 back!
6) Hundreds of thousands of people have tried it out and became disillusioned so better investigate it before joining the ever expanding sucker list. Remember! 99% of MLM companies "spike and disappear in eight months". Statistics show that most of those that join don't remain with it at the end of one year. See if you can figure out why?
