Not Hired by Demand Studios

OKAY, Demand Studios turned me down.  I knew it was a long shot considering my writing is not the best but I still incourage others to try because after investigating it is by far one of the highest paying writing jobs on the net.  I recieved a very polite email saying that they have become very competitive with the writers they choose to accept.  If anyone gets rejected like I did you can always try again by applying with a different email address.  CashCampfire has good useful information for applying at DS and other ways of making money with your writing.  Associated Content is another place to try.  If you have a passion for writing apply at DS

Article Writing

Hello everyone, in my previous post I mentioned selling used cars and the idea did not work out for me, so I do not recommend it.  I gave several dealerships many referrals from people looking at my site but never made any money.  Who knows if anyone ended up buying a car or not.  Anyway, I am thinking about article writing even though I am not extremely confident with my writing skills.  I hear the highest paying company for writing is "Demand Studios".  This is where articles for "eHow" come from.  I have heard from many people and demand studios reviews that there are ups and downs of working for this company.  One of the ups being the pay which is usually between $7.50-$20 an article.  One of the downs being that the editors can be difficult to deal with.  I plan on applying to Demand Studios within the next week so I will let you know how it goes and my thoughts on wither you should give it a try or not.

Make Money Selling Used Cars

No, I am not asking you to be Used Car salesman.  I opened an email the other day stating "5 Step Formula for making $300 a day".  Normally I would I delete the email without even checking it out but for some reason I thought I'd give a quick look.  Basically the page was saying to find some dealers in the your area that are willing to pay a referral fee if you send a buyer their way.  Next, advertise the dealer or their cars on Craigslist and Backpage.  It is pretty simple but something I never would have thought of myself.  I actually signed up to get a new money making method every month for a year.  I never spend money on what usually ends up being a gimmick.  The next method was also easy and something I never would have thought of.  I highly recommend you check out this site.  Also see the site I got going after I made my first referral fee.  It is very similar to the one shown on the 5 step site.

Advertise your store with eBay classified ads

So most people use the classified ads on eBay to sell their digital products such as promotional e-books or to advertise their affiliate programs.  Before we go any further I do not mean the local classifieds (,  I mean the classified ads you can place on eBay.  But you can place an add that leads to your store.  You just need to find the right classification to put it under.  Go under "everything else" if you have to but this is quality advertising for $9.95 a month.  These classifieds are also placed on the side bar of the auctions page.  Just be smart in choosing the keywords when describing what you are selling in your eBay store.  Treat it like Google search engine and even check out Google Adwords to see what words get the most traffic.  I would list your store in as many free classified ads as you can find on the internet.  There are many, do a search for free classified advertising.

Selling your ideas on eBay

I have not blogged for a while, so I apologize to anyone who cares. For a couple of months now I have been thinking about how one sells their invention or idea "on eBay". When gas prices in my town rose to an outrageous $4.69 per gallon, my father started to play with hydrogen to run car engines on. This is a whole other story in itself but that's how I got interested in "how to sell your ideas on eBay". Following are a few aspects to consider:

  • Keep it your own - Patent, license, trademark, copyright, etc.
  • Prototype - is it safe, legal and does what you claim.
  • Manufacture - how and where would manufacturing take place. What is the cost and how much could the product be sold for.
  • Market and Promote - find out if there is a market (will people be interested in buying such a product). Be able to explain why it is so special and what it can do.
  • Disclaimers - cover your butt. Make sure if the product is complicated or not idiot proof that all instructions or warnings stated clearly.
If you follow through with selling something of your own, you need to realize that you are to become an entrepreneur. This means that every step and action stems from you. Even if you hire someone to do something for you and they screw up, it comes back on you. There is much to be written on this subject and I will continue to do just that. This initial post is to get you started thinking. Important sites are United Inventors Association and United States Patent and Trademark Office.
