Damn! I Want To Make Money ALREADY!

by treevee 95 replies
I've joined this forum 2.5 years ago and still searching for answers to bring in just a minimal mount of income! I don't have much to invest. I am unemployed collecting $0 starting Aug 1st. An illness of mine prevents me from going out of my home and finding work out in the workplace arena.

I have been trying my hand at internet marketing, review sites and niche marketing with amazon and clickbank products. Thing is, since I don't write very well, I've had to pay others to write for me. The backlinking that I've done manually, hasn't any real affect on my biz. I've resorted to pay for both services and still, only an average of $25/month in return after 2.5 years of trying and allowing a dozen of my sites to just expire.

I've recently been looking into HYIP companies like JustBeenPaid and Zeek, only to hear that they are scams and the risks are high that these companies will be closed down, sooner or later….. and with my luck, sooner, no doubt.

I am willing to work at least 4 hours (or more) per day. I don't have a life…. I do nothing but sit here and twiddle my fingers waiting for an opportunity to pop out at me in my ongoing, grueling searches. I thought that perhaps data entry would be an opportunity, only to find that all the good and legitimate ones have a waiting list of 2 years.

I am desperate folks - I have no money to invest although I have lots of time, I have no background experience in computer work, writing one article takes me forever, I've looked into places like oDesk, Fiverr, and the lot, etc. I've come to the conclusion that you need money to make money and all of mine went out the window when I became ill. Any sound and realistic ideas? I need something that will bring in the money now and not later.

If this doesn't sound pathetic I don't know what does…. but that is my situation. At over 50 and back home with my mom and sister and her 2 teenagers is killing me for the last 3 years - that's when I lost my business, home and sold all of my belongings worth anything!! UGH! I'm not ready to accept this as my fate!

What can I do, you may ask? I am a certified natural health counselor and can help people to heal themselves from every and practically all diseases/illnesses - I've studied under one of the greatest healers of all time - and this can be done thru my special diet and herbal tinctures. (95% success rate!!) Maybe some of you in the lot are suffering from a health issue or know of someone who is that I can share my expertise with?? I can do this online thru Skype, emails or phone calls. But with this biz, I have no way and money to market this. Why haven't I healed myself? - Even takes money to heal! And, I'm dying to do so.... as soon as I can make some money!

I could probably proofread anyone's eBooks and such - very good in grammar, but I have no experience to find a job w/ this, I looked into it just recently.

Like you probably assumed - I am at wits end and am open for all suggestions, if you will. It would be greatly appreciated!

    Your writing is fine so you'll have to head over to iwriter and start getting some income coming in. Then when you get enough you'll probably want to start on your own product based on natural healing and try to get that going. You need the money first, however. I feel your pain. Good luck.

      Everyone on the web has heard that you can clean out your garage or dust off some things from the basement or attic and make a few bucks by selling it on eBay. I’m not going to dispute that because that is 100% true. Back in the day I took it a step further and sold popular used magazines that I picked up for a song at used book stores, made screen savers based on the hottest trends of the day and a few other like ideas and was able to generate enough extra cash to buy a hot tub and a big screen TV! Now it was some work but I was able to run auctions about every two weeks and make on average $1500 per auction. This was working a few nights a week as I had a full time gig as well. Not bad huh? I’m sure I could have made more but that was all the time I cared to put into it. The return is directly proportional to the effort you put in.

    One thing that I think everyone would say to you is to take action, I was like this, then I just had a few free weeks so took some action once the ball is rolling you couldn't stop it even if you wanted to.

    You have a good lead being able to write decently, sign up on some freelancing websites like Elance and odesk. you can start there. then if you think you have enough knowledge on the trade then maybe you can start your own website and do some affiliate programs or sell your product. It will just be slow on the first few weeks.

    I think I would start contacting some of the other people on the forum who are offering article writing services and see if you could write for them. I would also head over to Fiverr.com and offer to write Amazon reviews, Lulu.com reviews and Barnes & Noble Nook Book review, as well as articles.

    I would look high and low for any service that pays to write more than 10 lines. I would check-out blog posting services. Think "out-of-the box"

    Here's a few ideas to get you started... now get off your a** and you do the rest.

    Treevee,

    You state " I am a certified natural health counselor and can help people to heal themselves from every and practically all diseases/illnesses - I've studied under one of the greatest healers of all time - and this can be done thru my special diet and herbal tinctures. (95% success rate!!)"
    You should capitalize on it by way of a website explaining what you do and the success rate. Then go here and use this guys service to get your site noticed (I am not an affiliate for this service. Just trying to provide another angle you could consider to make some $$) :

    http://www.warriorforum.com/complete...available.html

    The service you provide is to use Skype to help people heal themselves. You charge what you feel comfortable for your experienced value.
    You do this and the whole world is your oyster.

    I just checked and you have a lot of low competition/high searched keywords to go after and could get numerous first paged listings if done correctly.

    It seems you are missing one simple thing. Find a need and fill it. It's that simple. So if you aren't getting anywhere, you probably aren't offering something that will fill a void.

    You can learn everything in the world-traffic generation, social network marketing, blogging, every technique under the sun and become an expert at all of them. But at the end of the day if you aren't offering something that will fill a need, you aren't going to make any money. I've had to learn this the hard way.

    I wondered for a long time why I wasn't getting anywhere. I mean I know how to do all of these things, but (and it seems really obvious and stupid) I just wasn't doing the right things to make that money. I built blogs, I started projects but didn't finish them. On and on and on.

    So it all comes down to finding something that people want, and filling that void. It is that simple. Then sticking to it and seeing it through. Hope this helps.

    First off, why are you only willing to work 4 hours a day? Go at this full time. 8+ hours a day until you figure something out. Start with writing to make some money. Get $10+ an hour for your work. Do that for half a day and work on reinvesting that back into your business the other half of the day. If you do this you'll make $280 a week and then can build from there. Good luck!

    4 hours a day is a gift inits self! If you are looking for an easy to do business plan my suggestion would be

    week 1
    Build 4 review sites in different large niches i.e weight loss, finance, sports betting and online earning
    find 4 high value products for each site from clickbank of CJ or the likes even here on the wso forum, and write a breif review on your web site! For now forget SEO!

    week2 and onwards
    goto dub dub dub dot big boards dot com and find the biggest/busiest forums in your chosen niches that allow forum sigs and sign up and begin posting quality posts and answer peoples problems/questions to build up some post count! remember to use google to help provide value posts on anything your unsure of.
    Once you have set yourself up on these forums and made some good posts, do a simple signature for each niche.

    4 hours a day, means you can post 1 hour a day on each forum, with value posts you should be able to acheive 10 posts on each one, which will result in good traffic to your sites and lead to sales!

    Not what I would recomend for a long term business plan, but it will make you money which you can re-invest into your biz, buy products and give honest reviews, start SEO and build a list for each niche via an opt-in form and free offer on your sites!
    Magic doesn't happen over night but with 4 hours a day you can build the foundations to a good future and just keep expanding!

    This is not everyones cup of tea but probably one of the simplest start ups!

    Good luck

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with your writing, so that's all in your head. When it comes to making money with websites, the thing I've discovered is that once you start making money, it's all about pushing out content. It's the difference between making a few hundred dollars and thousands of dollars a month. You should also be building a list. Keep working on that.

    You could also get into ghostwriting, where you do research and write content for other marketers. It's a long-term business model. You can also get paid in whole or part before you do any work -- depending on what you and the client decide. Tiffany Dow has a product called Ghostwriting Cash that you'd benefit from.

      I honestly feel that you need to be more confident from reading your post. That's what business is all about...taking some risk. If you fail you try again. You just have to find something that you are really good at and market it. I hope that you are able to figure it out soon and wish you the best. Try having a little more confidence and you will attract positivity.
