    Alternatives to Affiliate Marketing
    I was just thinking of what else I can to earn income other than affiliate marketing and I think I figured out a real good one.

    Take a walk in any shopping mall/strip center parking lot. Wile your walking, be sure to look down every so often. If you do, you will most likely find some spare change that people have carelessly dropped. Pickup the change you discover and place it in your pocket. You have now earned more and in far less time than you will have on affiliate marketing....

    There you go.

    You may find a few stray bottles and aluminum cans on your walk that you can recycle too! Don't laugh, my dad made some great extra income over the years doing this. I think recycled newspapers, glass, plastic, and cans put me through college.

    Yeah, but that money's already yours, so it doesn't really count. Go to a neighbor's or a friend's house and check their couch.

    All of you are rookies. Not one mention of the money fountains everywhere. Sure, you get a little wet but there's plenty to be made.

    I just bumped into my neighbor, a leprechaun and attached a tracking device. I'm going to find out where that little guy keeps his pot o' gold.

    I'm saving the change I find to buy a laser printer, some green ink, and a few pounds of funny-looking paper.

    Oh and I know somebody is about to post, It's at the end of the rainbow. I checked, didn't see it.

    Wanted to add, I was checking wikipedia and:

    "Among the most popular of beliefs about leprechauns is that they are extremely wealthy and like to hide their gold in secret locations, which can only be revealed if a person were to actually capture and interrogate a leprechaun for its money."

    So that is a real possibility. Had I done my homework like I should have, instead of tagging him with a tracking device, I should have just tackled him and make him give up the info.

    We will,

    But on the mean time, just walk with a stick or a cane while chewing gum wherever you go.

    Then........

    Every time you pass by a fountain where people throw away money for a wish, just put a piece of chewed gum on the end of the stick and make a wish and pick up that money.

    Remember, the more famous the water fountain, the more money you can make in one day.

    Another way to make money without any work is more simple.

    Just grab an empty cup from your kitchen and wal to a nearby church or any place of worship and just stand there with the cup in hand, you don't even have to speak, unless you just want to say thanks every time someone place a bill on your cup. (note: you can make a killing on weekends, specially now on December.)

    There is even a better way, but that's the one I am using daily, so I can't share it for free.

    But for $19.95, I am willing to sell you a digital copy before midnight today. Just mention coupon code SeyButts2ts to the operator after you give your CC. number.

    I read somewhere that some guy was making $60k a year (or a sum bigger than that) pulling coins out of the Trevi fountain in Rome before the police caught on and arrested him.

    Heck all I have to do is either check my son's pockets before washing. Before he went of to basic training, I told him I was going to clean and pack his room. It took us 3 days but I garnished $32 and some change.

    Seymour, all you do is complain. Why did you get into this business? Whats your story?
    And if your sites are so horrible and not making money, why not post them for review?
    Something just seems wrong.

    Not a bad idea. Go ahead and give it a try. Put one of your sites in the " Site / Logo / Banner Review" forum, here...

    Actually, I only complain about half of the time.

    I haven't worked a day since I went to a casino in my slot machine costume.

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    There is a lot of change under drink and candy machines.
    • Place brick just in front of machine.
    • Place hands on top and tilt machine back.
    • With foot slide brick under.
    • Drop to the floor and slide hands under for treasure.
    • Keep eyes open for the heat.

    Good Grief! Even with your step-by-step "How-To" there, bumpaw, I personally wouldn't be coordinated enough to do all that. Can you say "pinched fingers"?

    Nah, I kinda like the slot machine costume idea. Or, if you like the water ideas, you could make it a wishing well or fountain costume.

    Ah, no, wait. Wait. Better seasonal idea -- dress up like a red bucket hanging on a red metal stand and, uh, stand around outside Wal-Mart stores. No?

    I can see people getting trapped under these machines after they fall over. For shame. :P
