facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this tutorial I explain 15 fundraising strategies and ideas that you can use to raise money for your business.

Here is the link to the video with 50 ways to make money online: http://youtu.be/XcIleEkezBY

As mentioned in the video, follow this link to see if you qualify for a business loan with Lendio.

Here is the link to my full course on how to start a business which was mentioned in the video.

It is a pretty comprehensive list, and covers topics like loans, grants, investors, donations, crowdfunding, bootstrapping, and some creative strategies that you can use to raise money for your business.

Another cool thing about this video is that it has online and offline fundraiser strategies, and you can use the ideas in this tutorial for any kind of a project, business, nonprofit, or school.

In this tutorial, you get 15 ways to raise money for your business. I have direct experience with many of those fundraising strategies. To raise funds for my businesses in the past, I have put on successful events, made money online with digital products to them put that money towards my business, did freelancing online, and worked full-time and part-time jobs. For me, all those ways to fund my business ideas worked great, and I would recommend them.

What didn’t work for me was grants or investors. Those fundraising strategies just wasted my time. And if I tried to do crowdfunding, I have a feeling that this would waste my time as well because crowdfunding is challenging these days, and it isn’t as simple as it seems to get someone to give you a donation.

Additionally, here is a tutorial for how to raise money by making money online with Fiverr:

Here is a way to raise money for your business by earning it on Udemy:

And here are a few of my older but helpful fundraising videos.

And here is a full affiliate marketing tutorial, which is a strategy you can use to raise money by earning it online, and putting it towards your business:

All in all, I don’t want to make it seem like fundraising is easy, or even that most people are successful. In fact, it is difficult, and most people who sit back and wait for money to come to them never get any money. People who are successful are ones who work hard, are creative and resourceful, keep trying and don’t give up. That is the truth.

In parting, I’d like to offer a few of my products that might help you. Check out my list of books on Amazon:

How musicians can raise money, sell music and make money from their music

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this video tutorial I explain how musicians can raise money for their music.

Here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote and check out my full fundraising course online.

If it is difficult to raise money that doesn’t come with any strings attached, I talk about how musicians can fund their music ventures by selling music online and do live shows locally to make money from their music online and offline.

Many musicians come to me and ask how to raise money. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to raise money for music. My advise is to begin growing their reach and their marketing channels any way they can. This can mean starting and making money from their own YouTube channel and other social media websites. They can also sell their music on iTunes. And then there is the old and traditional way of making money if you are a musician, which is playing shows.

Raise money for business by selling body parts. Sell hair, sperm and blood

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this video tutorial I talk about a strange but viable way to raise money. You can raise money for your business (not a lot of it, but some) by selling body parts.

No, don’t sell your kidneys. But you can sell blood, hair, sperm and other parts of your body that get regenerated back. This isn’t going to get you hundreds of thousands of dollars, but it can supplement your company’s revenue on a regular basis (because all these body parts grow back) and help you financially until you get your business heading in the right direction.

I bet you didn’t think of selling body parts like hair, sperm or blood, right? I didn’t either. But I guess if you need the money badly enough, you will go and try these options instead of waiting for money to just fall into your lap, as we know it always does, right? Just joking. Money doesn’t fall into your lap. So if you are really serious about starting a business, and need a bit of cash to get started, the strategies mentioned here might seem strange but they can work.

Make money with AirBnb to fund your business by renting out your apartment or house through Airbnb

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this video tutorial I explain how you can rent out a part of your home through AirBnb to help fund your business. And if you like this tutorial, here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote. Also, try my full course on how to start a business.

You can rent out anything from a room to a full apartment to a full house. As long as there is demand in your area, you can generate a large amount of cash for your business by consistently renting out a room to different travelers through AirBnb.

I realize it isn’t the slickest way to fund your business, but it is one way that can work to get you some extra cash for whatever you might need for your business.

I have met a number of people who make money with airbnb, and for the most part, they have nothing but good things to say about their experience. Most of the people they meet are cool people, and every once in a while they become good friends with the people who stay at their apartments from AirBnb.

One note of caution is that Airbnb isn’t available in all parts of the world. In some places it is considered illegal because of some laws associated with hotels, and how people can book places to stay.

Another word of caution is to ultimately be careful because the people who will come to your house or apartment will be strangers, so you can always get unpleasantly surprised.

Passive income streams: fund your business with passive income streams like selling digital products

Take my full affiliate marketing course: https://www.udemy.com/make-money-with-affiliate-marketing-earn-passive-income/?couponCode=y

Here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote: http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Genadinik/e/B00I114WEU

For more marketing and business help, check out my apps, books and online courses for entrepreneurs: http://www.problemio.com

In this video tutorial I discuss how you can raise money for your business and fund it by hustling and trying to sell products online. You can sell physical or digital products. For the most part, digital products are easier to create and deliver to customers. Because of that, selling digital products can be qualified as a passive income stream. A passive income stream is ideal if you start a business because it requires much less attention and time devoted to it. Because of that, passive income streams are great for funding your business since they allow you to focus almost entirely on your business provided that the passive income streams you created remain strong and deliver revenue.

Personally, I have taken advantage of a number of passive income streams. Some of the passive income streams I have used have been YouTube marketing and monetization, selling books on Amazon and the Kindle. I have also created mobile apps which bring me passive income every month. Additionally, I created online business and marketing courses on Udemy which serve as nice passive income streams as well. All together these monetization paths help me earn a nice living and fund any other activities I want to do like start a business if I want to (although I have already started one) or go traveling or anything else. Although, to be honest, I have not done too much traveling because I am more interested in pursuing my creative work. But other people in my shoes would certainly take advantage of having the freedom of earning passive income revenue and they would go traveling.
