If you need help making money in GTA Online watch this video! This is a speed run of the Gerald mission called "Violent Duct" which pays out $9,000 for less than a minute's work. Each run like this this took us an average of 2 minutes (including load time) so doing the math it equates to $270,000 per hour. As of today (Oct 7th, 2013) it is still the fastest way to make money even at rank 40s & 50. Stay tuned to the end of the video to see the rank 50 Merryweather Airstrike ability.
I made this video to illustrate one of my main problems with this game. This is easy money but it's a symptom of a serious flaw in progression when a lvl 50 would rather grind this noob mission instead of doing high level missions because this pays better.

There's a lot of people doing this. Enjoy it while you can because I'm sure R* will nerf this mission with a patch so you can't exploit it anymore.

This is basically how I made my 400k/ level 25 on day one of GTA:O

I thought boosting and killing people during free roam could make you a bad sport. I'll give it a try.

I see the point you've been making about this, Kodo. I have to say too the tactic of you running in while your team does the killing/distraction seems like it could be a pretty fun way to approach these sorts of jobs.

There's a lvl 45 mission from Martin Madrozzo that we found gives $18,000 and 3,000 rep per run, it can be done in 30 seconds to 1 minute, it winds up being much more efficient like $700/hr and 160k/hr. I will put together a video for this soon. Also found a lvl 65 mission that pays out $25,000 per run.

I unlocked Violent Duct today, and unfortunately didn't know the trick to replaying it post-patch till after I'd done it, so I can only redo it if someone puts out an open invite during a session. Still, I'm not too far from my goal of buying a decent pad now, so I can't complain too much.

Call Gerald he will possibly give it to you again.

Wtf fucking bullshit really?

When was it nerfed? This was still working on Xbox after the title update #2
But there's a better mission at lvl 45 and at lvl 75 so if you have someone in your party ask them for Mixed up With Coke (lvl 45) or Rooftop Rumble (75)
