Need Money? Don't Cyberbeg

Are you in dire straits for money? Bills to pay? Medical expenses? Gas prices too high? Blown all of your HARD EARNED money on "Guaranteed" money-making scams?

Well, if you are in need of money, here's one way NOT to go about getting it. Don't use If you do, you will be paying $20 for a six month subscription, only to be automatically renewed and billed another $20 after the six months unless you cancel. And guess what? You ad for your plea will be lost among the many other ads for pleas placed on this site.

What's the kicker is is that you have to pay more to get your listing noticable, and even that doesn't help because many others have done the same thing.

What happens on is you place your ad, and then others who place after you will push you down, making you less searchable, unless you pay another $8 to move to the top to make you most searchable. You're trying to get money, not spend it.

So if you need money, here is what you do. See about getting a host and a domain name. Yes, this will cost you some money, but bear with me cause I'm gonna sweeten this all up for you. However, if you don't want to spend the money, you can always create a blog and post your plea, but again, please bear with me on this.

After you have created your site, go to and if you don't already have a paypal account, go ahead and create one--it is free. Paypal has many buttons for people who want to receive money, including Buy Now or Donate. You can choose a Donate button.

You should get some code for your button. Place that code on your website or blog so people can donate money to you. You also need to put your plea. Explain your situation and convince people to want to give you money, but don't make them think you're a pathetic loser or they won't give you anything.

Please remember to thank visitors to your site or blog. These people are being generous, so be greatful and appreciative to them.

Offer an incentive for people to donate money to you. Give them something in return. For example, have you purchased resell rights packages, or any informational products or software with resell rights? Offer them a resell rights package. If you bought several different packages, you can mix and match the products into different packages. You can also mix in products you have created--reports, short ebooks, or any informational product, and you can add resell rights to that. This is sometimes known as a firesell. You can also coordinate the incentive with the amount people donate.

For instance, if someone donates up to X amount of dollars, you can give them a package with say 5 products, and if someone else donates Y amount of dollars, you can give them a package with say 10 products, and so on.

Moreover, a resell rights package is one product you can give in return for people's generosity, but you can get creative and offer people many incentives.

Remember when I said bear with me? Well, thank you for bearing with me so far. About paying for a host and a domain name to set up a website, unlike, you can control the exposure your website or blog gets. You will need to use the right keywords for your site or blog to be picked up in the search engines, you can pay for pay per click, or you can get a Traffic Swarm account and get surf traffic. You can also get an account with AutoSurf HIT. These are a couple of sites to help you build traffic.

This way, you will be able to request donations as long as your site or blog exist, and you don't have to pay $20+ every six months.

So good luck should your decide to request donations or are in need of some cash, and be nice because people who donate to you are being generous with their gift.

Good for you! Sounds great & I am gonna try it! I have been on disablity for a few years now after being a work-a-holic all of my life & it is more than tough! I did subscribe to that "Cyberbeg" thieving site & paid them $15.00 & received not 1 cent, just a few hundred emails from scammers... yes, Cyberbeg DOES give out your personal email address! I just finished writing to them & giving them a piece of my mind! I am tring to get off disability & back on my feet by turning a hobby into an online business... I create jewelry... & it is difficult to get started when you have no expendable cash. Now I will try just what you said & offer my earrings & other items I have made in exchange for a donation... I would rather give something for something than get something for nothing! This may be my answer to getting the $$$ to start a real website.

The best place I've found to try out is for free begging online. It doesn't cost a penny to post and you can upload photos and easily link it in with your Twitter, Facebook, or Myspace account to help get people interested in your posting.

I saw an interesting site where the guy has a cyber donation web site with a FORUM too, to help others talk about their unfortunate money situations! He talks about a situation he got involved in which turned out to be a ponzi scheme. Took the poor schlep for everything he had. I am a web designer by trade and have to say its a very professional looking web site. Oh yeah, I donated a few sheckels to help him out. His site is here, called

I put my begging ad on because it's free, I need money so why should I ever pay!

I recommend crowdfunding site if you need to raise money

You can request money for your cause for free. In addition, as mentioned in this post, offering an incentive in exchange for pledges is built it. You are required to offer non-financial rewards that helps attract pledges

It also removes the derogatory connotations associated with 'cyberbegging'

As there are many of you who are trying to earn money online i would like to share 3 great and what's very important working websites. I've got these 3 sites from my friend and after 6 month of using it i am 100% satisfied. They all work in a same way. 1 - you create an account, 2 - you should view ads and 3 - you should invite as many friends as possible. Make sure to invite people cause if you manage to invite a serious number of them you may even earn between 10 and 100 dollars daily. The best thing is after earning your money is sent instantly to your paypal or payza account. These are links and happy earning.

There is not a soul who does not have to beg alms of another, either a smile, a handshake, or a fond eye. See the link below for more info.
