How to Make Quick Cash Online

How can I make money online, fast? This question, or similar questions, have been popping up in my inbox occasionally. And go to any online marketing forum and you’ll doubtless see a couple of threads on this topic, as well. It seems that a lot of people get initially interested in online marketing because they are in a financial pinch and hope the Internet can get them out of it.

Below is a video in which I talk about two methods for making almost guaranteed, and fast, income online.

Don’t worry, though. This is still RQR and therefore still a hype-free zone. Video may not be quite what you expect, however…

As stated in the video, I believe in building long-term businesses online and I also believe that chasing quick cash will actually keep you poor, in the long term. Expanding on what I said in the video, there is perhaps one way to make money that comes a little closer to most people’s “get rich quick” fantasies: Start with something you’re already good at. Maybe there is something among your skill set that can be turned into a product. If you can do that, that might be one of the quickest ways to get started. However, before you have a serious business, you’ll still need to learn all the basics like keyword research, market research, how to build a website, how to promote a website, how to create compelling offers, etc. Let me know what you think of my video? Good advice in your opinion? Or would you have made different suggestions? I’d like to get your input on this. Cheers,

    Shane, I remember listening to the millionaire tv interview and that was an excellent audio interview.

    I quite enjoyed watching this video as well. I don’t mean this as a negative at all, but I’m intrigued by your accent!

    Keep up the good work.

      Hi Moon,

      I’ve got another interview coming up soo, that should also be really great. :)

      My accent is the strange result of having an Irish father, but growing up in Switzerland. I guess, if nothing else, at least it’s unique… ;)

    Thanks for the video!

    I think it is a good idea to clean up your space and sell all the stuff that your really don’t use for whatever reason.

    I agree that it is a good practice to do so on eBay or some similar site. You really have to practice finding good headlines for one thing.

    Speaking of accent. I did not think that you were totally Swiss if I may put it that way. You don’t sound like my friends in Zurich and that is not meant to insult anyone. Now I know why :)

    Best wishes

      Glad you liked the video! I think I need to do another ebay clean-out myself, soon. :)
