How to make money

How to make extra, fast money

When we are under pressure for money we always come up with creative ways to get some. There are illegal and legal ways of course. Illegals makes more money and much much faster but it can backfire. Nothing is a crime until you get caught!

Legal ways such as this I am going to show you can make money just as fast and no back firing. I used to did this myself and it’s very easy to do. It’s just about an on demand system. Meaning when ever you need money you can go and repeat the process. Easy as pie. In order to do this you have to know where people shop. People shop at their local businesses. They will not go 50 miles for a loaf of bread or for a pair of shoes or for a sandwich.

When I used to needed quick extra money,  here is what I did.

No special skills or an is MBA necessary to understand and implement this method.

I asked local businesses if they would be interested in some extra customers if they wouldn’t cost them a penny. Of course they were. Than I asked if they would be willing to give a percentage of the profit away to those extra customers. Not to me, but to those customers.

If the answer was yes than I asked them if they would be willing to work with me to get those extra customers and pay me nothing for it. Of course they were and now I was in business, to make some extra money.

Next I looked for printing companies and asked them for their best price for printing 1000 copies of a full color coupon booklet that was the size of a quarter of an A4 page. Once I had the lowest price I set the details with that company and I was ready to go.

So I started to sign up the businesses I was talking to earlier and included them in a coupon booklet where they were offering a 5, 10, 20 percent or whatever off, if the customer walked in with one of their coupons from my booklet.

Once I signed up at least 50 or so businesses, I went to the printing company and had them print me 1000 booklets.

The advertisers had a full color choice for the ads and all they had to do was, to supply the ads. One ad per business. I didn’t offer any design or graphics or typesetting services. Since this marketing was free for these businesses.

When the coupon booklets were printed in a day or two I paid the printer and off I was to make my quick money.

I started to go from door to door and sold these booklets that was full of coupons that came from their LOCAL businesses for $5 dollars per booklet. These booklets were offering far greater value from just about any business than the $5 dollars they cost and if one multiplies it by the number of LOCAL  businesses in that booklet they can see the Value in it. I approached local schools and churches and offered them at a discount if they buy more than 100 booklets and sell them at their fundraising.

People gobbled them up at such a bargain price. Imagine $5 dollars for a booklet that comes from 50 plus local businesses you use almost every day or week to do your shopping or buying their services. What a bargain. The cost of the printing is minuscule. At the time it cost me less than $500 dollars per 1000 booklets. The total profit per 1000 booklet was $4500 dollars. Sometimes I had hired students or kids and gave them $2 dollars for each booklet they have sold. They were happy and I was happy.

This system works in just about any country in the world.  All you have to do is just do the legwork to set the deal up with some local businesses and the printing company. Any time in the future you need some more extra, fast money just repeat the process.

The key is in the psychology of how people think. Money is in the poor people’s pocket they say and it’s true. The average person isn’t rich and they are trying to save money where ever they can.  They always shop at local stores

You have to keep the price of the booklets cheap enough so they see the huge value in it and don’t mind to pay for it. Although there might be a $1000 dollars value in that book for everyday items they use, you can’t offer it at $100 because that’s a lot of money for the average person and you might sell a couple but you’ll lose in the end. Keep it very cheap and run with it.  Keep it at $5 a piece and sell it quick.

The price got to be a round number like $5 not $5.95. Got to be easy in the mind and don’t make them look for the $.95

The tools you need for this are; 1 notepad for where you write down the names of the businesses that you’ve signed up. A pen or pencil. A briefcase to keep the coupon booklets in when you go door to door. (looks more professional) A sort of decent clothing that don’t have rips and smears and oil stains.

    1. Well, you’re right. Of course it cost money to start it up, but all that money came in from the contracts and since the the advertisers paid up front, that covered all of the starting expenses including the sales woman I had hired and the printing cost and the postage cost, etc.

      In effect it is a no money start up. All I did was the legwork to put it together and that was just the cost of the fuel for the car, to go and see the businesses involved and the few telephone calls I had to make.

      I know it’s frustrating when you need money and I can feel you, but look behind the negative thoughts and ry to figure it out for yourself. This is the way I did it, but since everyone is different it gives you an idea of how you might be able to do it.
