So, in the economy that today's world offers, tehre are a lot of peole crying out because they need help.
This is normal, and to be expected.
However, there's also been a glut of posts talking about the lack of jobs, or, ironically, the abundance of crappy jobs. I suppose that they can be
looked at as one and the same to a lot of poeple.
That's not the point of this thread, however.
I want this thread to be designed to HELP PEOPLE, by making money, TODAY, using skills they CURRENTLY have.
Let me put it this way: Even in a small town, there are potentially MILLIONS of dollars being spent each day. Between businesses selling or buying
from other businesses, bank information, people buying the goods they need, etc, even in this bad economy, there are great amounts of money flying
What can someone, perhaps you, as a person with no special training or skills, and, potentially, VERY little cash to work with, do to grasp at least a
little bit of those dallars floating around?
Here's one thing...
I posted this in one of the many threads going on about this, but thought that this potic is absolutely improtant enought o bring out into a full
IF YOU READ THIS POST, YOU WILL MAKE MONEY. I Betcha.
Folks, it's not about JOBS, it's about making use of what you have!
Let me give an example...
Did you know that there is a way to get free text message services from Twitter? It's true. You can set up an account under any name you want, and
anyone that subscribes to that using a certain format will, from that point on, recieve text/sms messages to their cell phone.
How is that useful?
I will give you an example that's been used by my company.:
Go to a restaurant in your area and set up a contract with them, that you will help them build up a list of customers that opt in to a "free sandwich
a week" giveaway (or whatever you and the company decides on). Set up signage (how hard is it to print a sign on a piece of paper and stick it to the
register with a piece of tape?) and then set up a twitter acount for the restaurant.
Let's say it's Joe's Pizza. You can set up a Twitter account called "joespizza". Then, if a customer wants to opt in to the program, they simply text
"follow joespizza 40404". Boom. They are now opted in, and any messages that that account types in will be texted to them.
Now, let's say that the restaurant is having a slow Tuesday night. (happens often lol) They can send out a text message to all of the customers on
their list, saying that anyone coming in that night that mentions the text will get 25% off of their order or something. Boom. Restaurant is full,
restaurant OWNER is happy, and you can charge $100 a month to that restaurant to maintain their list, send out the messages, etc.
Do that for 10 restaurants in the area and you are making $1000 a month in EASY and FREE TO YOU money.
And that's just ONE way to use it. Think outside of the box a little bit and it can be expanded big time.
Dry cleaners, day care centers, beauty salons, ANYONE THAT NEEDS CUSTOMERS can benefit from this.
Want a super heavy duty dose? How about setting up an "Emergency Prayer Request" service, where you sign up a church for $25 a month to do the same
type of thing, only sending out prayer requests to their parishoners?
How many churches are in your town? Mine has literally one on every dang corner. There's 10 PAGES worth in the Yellow Pages. And trsut me on this,
CHURCHES JUMP AT THIS. (You could even give it away for karma if you wish lol)
It's about doing what you can, with what you have availbale, and NOT RELY on ANYONE ELSE to feed you or to give you what you deserve. It's about
taking control of your own life and saying the heck with the rest.
Now, in that idea I just gave you, WHERE DO YOU NEED TO PAY FOR TRAINING? Where do you need to go get schooling or begging for loans?
I have, literally, a TON more things that can be done like this, that anyone can do without having to pay a dime to anyone else for the privelege of
doing it lol I can post them here, but if no one is interested in using the ideas to make their lives better, or even to make someone ELSES life
better by telling them about this stuff, I will not bother.
I am not into giving handouts. I want to help those that want to help themselves, and there's nothing wrong with that, right? To do otherwise breeds
the entitlement society we see today.
Hope that someone gets the idea that they can read this post and go out, right NOW, and make some money.
Someone will, I just know it.
The other 99% will not. They will be waiting for someone else to hand them a paycheck and screaming when they can only apply at McDonalds or
Come on people. Seriously. I just handed you GOLD.
