    Hey guys,
    SEMrush
    Need your suggestions.

    I need a new car for about $15k. I am college student and the car that I currently have is just not dependable enough :(. I already make monthly money but its more like spending money. So I need some suggestions for what I can do to get $15k in about 2-3 months(which is the time I think my current car will last)?

    Thanks in advance...

    Not possible.

    Give up now.

    Of course it's possible, I'm averaging about 70% of that and I'm working about 30 mins per day.

    If you're just starting out it would be hard for you to make $15k in 2-3 months. If you have a great idea for a site and you know how to manage your ads on there then you can make that...if not your other choice is rob a bank! lol jk dont do that!

    Not likely. It depends on... everything. Brainstorm some ideas and try to implement them. You don't have to reinvent the wheel, just be able to market it better than the next person.

    Possible. But odds that you will make it are very low. Lets meet in 3 months and see your results :)

    Realistically speaking, I think you shouldn't try making all that money for a car online.
    I'm doing the same thing, but I'm saving up for a cheap used car, and I don't live in a big city.
    It'd require money to invest, and if you don't play your cards right, you could just be in the hole.
    Your location says Houston. You probably COULD sell your car, I know there is a bus system there =P

    You could try getting another job if you already have one, though that could be hard with classes.
    And save all your "spending" money if you need it that bad. It all adds up!

    Good luck with whatever you do. I'm sure you could make at least a third of that online.

    Yes its possible but very unlikely, think about changing your goal into something more realistic like 3000 a year which if you would be able to get a loan would pay for your car over 5 years.

    Well Houston does have a bus system but that is in the inner city :(, I live in the suburbs....

    Yes, I have thought about getting a loan, but I am just afraid if for some reason I dont make enough money down the road for the payment, my credit will be screwed up. Thats why I just want to pay cash.

    You need $5,000/m. Can you work full time? If so, you could work like crazy and create between 50 to 100 web sites a month. That would be at least 2 web sites a day: One in the morning, one in the afternoon. Create the layout, a logo, convert it to XHTML/CSS and place it on sale on Sitepoint. If you create quality and good-looking sites, you can sell them and make that amount of money. But this is hell of a work :(

Maybe u can try buying a domain name and resell it for a high price...im not sure about tis because i've never try it but i heard some people doing it
