How to Get Money Fast - Using the Internet to Make Quick CashGetting money fast is a situation that faces most of us at different points in our life. Typically one would have three standard choices -- take on a second job/extra shifts, ask friends or family to borrow some cash, or take out a loan from the bank.
Today we have a fourth choice -- to make quick cash by using the power of the internet. And it is by far the best choice, because you don't run the embarrassment of pleading with friends and family, and you don't have the repayment obligations of a loan. In fact, if you choose the right method, you can make a ton of cash without investing a single cent.
Here is one method anybody can use:
Firstly you need to understand what affiliate marketing is. Affiliate marketing is where you promote a merchant's product, and take a 50% or more commission on each sale you make. You can use sites like Clickbank and Commission Junction to find products which you can promote. Remember, it is absolutely free to become an affiliate -- simply register your personal details so they will know who to pay.
Find an affiliate product which pays you between $50 - $150. Ensure it is a good product and, if possible, buy the product yourself...it will be a worthwhile investment. Then write up a comprehensive report on the product, listing every benefit and feature it has. Don't be shy with the hyperbole when it comes to this -- you want to make this a really slick report, even if it only totals a few pages. Remember to include your affiliate links throughout the report.
After finishing the short report, convert it into a PDF document by using a free solution such as Open Office, or Adobe's own free trial available at their website. So now you have a glossy report which is effectively laminated. The next thing to do is find some place to host it and make it available for download. You can do this for free by registering a free blog at a host like Blogger or Wordpress.
Finally, you must then hit every message board, forum and group related to the niche product you are promoting. Getting money fast is dependent on this stage. If you are affiliating for an ebook on real estate, then run a Google search for real estate forums. Register at every significant forum, include a link to your free downloadable report in your profile signature, and start posting.
Ensure that all of your posts are valuable. Do not spam. The more value you give in each of your posts, the more substantial your gravitas will become. The more gravitas you have, the more likely users are to click on your link and look at your report. Make it your aim to join 10 forums and post five messages a day in each forum. The best thing you can do is answer questions -- people always want questions answered. You can find the answer to almost any question by doing just a bit of research on any search engine. Fifty posts a day might sound a lot, but bear in mind that you will often be answering the same questions in different forums, so you may end up penning half that amount of posts.
Is the idea simple? Yes. Is the idea easy? No. Getting money fast requires hard work. You need to be disciplined enough to write a seductive report, to upload it to a site, and to then post to as many forums as you can each day, and be prepared to do a ton of research. But that said, the pay-off can be tremendous. If you sell just 10 copies at a $50 commission a piece, then you will have made an immediate $500. If you sell 40 copies at $100 commission a piece, you will have made $4000. And all of this within a few weeks, tops.
