How to Make Money Fast at Home Selling Air
Plenty of people want to know how to make money fast and how
to make money at home. I'm going to teach you how to do both of
these at the same time selling air. Yes, I said, air.
Now, you may think this is some snake oil pitch, but at least
snake oil is a product, now isn't it? Air however, could be a
product, if it were say compressed or purified in some way with
mostly nitrogen or oxygen.
But, no I'm going to teach you how to make money fast at home
selling plain old air. There you have it. You'll notice that this
is not one of those fancy landing pages going blah, blah, blah
with some sales spiel countering every objection you have telling
you to buy a Clickbank ebook today for a discounted price and
the clock is ticking.
No, this is a primer in looking around you and telling you that
everything you have is a commodity that can be bought, sold, traded
or bartered. I read an article a few years back about a gentleman
who started on Craigslist by bartering his way up from one paperclip
to eventually buying a house.
Yes, this was a gimmick. Yes, this caught on, went viral and
the paperclip idea is just about as thin as thin air.
So, what do I mean by air? In the space around you there is stuff.
Simple stuff. Stuff that you overlook all the time can be sold,
using some imagination like the paperclip. So, remember the pet
rock a few years back?
Someone took a rock and made millions of dollars off of it. The
title of this article back then would have been how to make money
fast at home selling rocks. You would have thought then I had
gone nuts, gone crazy, gone off the deep end, gone all Mel Gibson
on your butt.
But, no the pet rock made millions and the paperclip made a new
homeowner. So, just how does one make money fast and at home selling
anything simple like air, rocks or paperclips?
The first thing to do is keep it simple. The second thing to
do is to think up something that no one has done (or overdone)
before. The third action one must take is to take some action.
Just how many times have you had a great idea and thought that
someone else (not you) could make a bazillion dollars off of it?
You fantasize about being the Idea Man (or woman) and selling
your idea for big money and then sit your big hairy fat ass on
a beach somewhere the rest of your life flirting with the worker
bees in some Caribbean island who live in a hut out of sight of
the tourists and feed their kids food from CARE packages.
You think that just by coming up with a great idea you are somehow
entitled to give it to someone else who won't steal it and just
sit back and reap the benefits. Do you think Bill Gates never
worked for his billions and that he just came up with an idea
and handed it off to someone else? Sure, that is what he did after
putting years of hard labor in upfront.
In fact, do you know a single soul personally who came up with
a great idea, gave it to someone else who did all the hard work
and became a millionaire in such a manner? Yeah, only in your
But, that fact is that you can make money at home fast. And how
do you do this selling simple stuff? The trick is usually in the
packaging and marketing. The pet rock had both of these and the
paperclip had only one of these.
A few years back someone developed a fart in a jar and sold it
as a novelty. This is basically bad air in a jar with some decent
packaging and a lot of marketing. This was a novel idea selling
air, a particular kind of air.
Every time someone else farts around you, you wrinkle your nose
and perhaps cough a little and look around to see who the culprit
is. Perhaps the culprit is even you. Well, here is someone so
good at selling that they are selling their own farts to other
people who are paying good money for this.
Talk about selling snow to an Eskimo (or tar land in Florida).
So after you've come up with a novel, simple idea that no one
has marketed well before and come up with an inexpensive prototype,
packaging and marketing plan (most of Craigslist is still free),
then it is time to test market your product.
Test marketing your "box of air" can be done on Craigslist
or eBay or by putting some good old sweat equity into a website
and start selling online. Throw caution to the wind, flatulate
into a balloon, do back flips and call out "Norma" or
whatever it is you do to get motivated.
Remember to live for the day, dance like it will be your last,
get the last laugh, and try some laughing gas every once in a
while to give you a break from your Xanax, Oxycontin or other
prescription medication addiction. And start selling air because
not to do so would be a huge err.
