I need your advices..

15 replies
I have studied many courses on digital marketing, social media marketing, and Canva design.

I am currently unemployed and looking for a way to work online.

I have tried many methods, such as freelancing, but I found the competition to be very difficult, especially when you are a beginner on a website without experience or ratings, even if you are confident in your skills.

I have also tried to find a remote job through remote job sites and LinkedIn.

I have considered starting an online business or a social media marketing agency, but I haven't started yet.

These days I'm trying to try all these methods, I feel very distracted and I haven't made any progress.

I want your advice, on how to start and what is the simplest and fastest way to make money for someone like me who has the skills of social media marketing and Canva design.

    You posted a similar thread over a year ago:

    https://www.warriorforum.com/beginne...l#post11699189

    What have you done since? If you implemented some of the advice you received then, you'd now have a portfolio and probably be earning. Instead you're still looking for simple and fast methods.

    What is it that's distracting you?

      What is it that's distracting you?
      A year ago, I was working in a job that I left recently. At that time, I wanted to start working as a freelancer, but I didn't have much time and I was more focused on my job, so I can't implement the ideas that I thought it was not slove my problem.
      Now, I have more time and I'm more focused on my freelance work."

      What distracts me is the many ways of working online that I have heard about and tried some of, but I have not reached anything (for example: freelancing), I am currently trying so many methods, but I want to try one method that I focus on and that is suitable for me, and because I do not know, I asked you for advice, is not this forum answers such questions ..?! - So why the surprise from my question ..?!

        There's no surprise - we see this all the time on the forum. People want to be told that there's one method that will guarantee them success. But nobody here can tell you what's best for you. Only you know whether you have the skills and willingness to do what needs to be done.

        All over the internet, there are those making a good living at freelancing - to use your example - so it isn't the method itself that's in question. If you have confidence in your ability and the desire to stick with it, you can make a success of whatever method you choose. You don't need to wait for the validation of strangers.

        Go for it, and next year post about your success.

    My advice is for you to take an inventory of your marketable skills.

    You know social media marketing and Canva, and that's great, but
    those are common skills that most internet marketers know.

    To be successful at internet marketing, you need to possess a
    number of different skills, not just one or two things.

    You should have skills such as editing videos, prompt engineering,
    animation, WordPress, etc. Whatever interests you and that you are
    good at, so that you can differentiate yourself from everybody else.

    You say you get distracted, lose focus, and can't make progress.
    When you get tired of being broke, you will figure something out.

    Read a book on side hustles and make money online, assess your
    skills, make a decision, and get busy working on it every day until
    something materializes.

    There are many ways to make money online it is so vast one of the best ways of making money online is doing you tube videos you can get some software for free that records your screen, even if you were wondering what types of videos to do, if you search on you tube vidoes if you type in any word then space it shows you what people are searching, for eg what is warrior forum you could do a video like that, it is very difficult at the start as you might think making money i dont have the skill sets, and dont know were to start thats what i thought at the begenning, it is best to start for free, i would try and find an affiliate program that isnt focused on making money, but has an actual community with normally a facebook group and does live training so you are not isolated and they will train and help and everyone can grow together, thanks for sharing this post, i wish u all the sucess that you want to have.

    All these things you learned are SKILLS.

    A skill is useless unless you can find BUYERS for it.

    If you want to build a business, you must find potential buyers who could use that skill, and start conversations with them.

    This is a COMPETENCY. I don't think this is talked about enough: business is about developing a few key competencies.

    You must develop the competency of reaching and starting conversations with people who could use your skills. If you can't do this, you'll never have a business.

    Freelancing sites offer the promise of connecting you with potential buyers. The problem is: you're in there with a thousand other folks who look, sound, behave the same way you do...and are pushing for the lowest price.

    In my opinion, it is better to develop your own method of finding potential customers and starting conversations with them: your own competency. Appear where your competition are not. Then you can charge a reasonable rate.

    To be blunt, no one is going to make it easy for you. Those who do well on freelancing sites have developed--guess what--a competency of using their connection points well and bidding effectively. They are using tools they have, such as testimonials, pricing, or even reframing the project into a more valuable one (I used to do this 10 years ago).

    Developing that competency takes FOCUS. As you know, you are doing a little of one thing, then giving up on that and trying another. After a few days of that you give up again and chase the next shiny promse.

    Instead, pick ONE way of reaching and starting conversations with potential buyers, and commit: focus on developing your competency with that.

    To be honest - it's really hard to make money sitting at home, because it's mental work, not physical work, on which you have a clear goal and time to complete. To work on the Internet, you need to know many terms and fields, as well as different methods of work according to your profession. And it is really difficult, because the competition is growing and growing over the years. As far as I know, there are various areas where you can realize yourself, but personally I am engaged in trading. Once I came across an article in which this profession was described in detail and I decided to Buy Ethereum with Credit Ural Bank.

      It's really hard for YOU to make money sitting
      at home, because you don't know what you are
      doing.

      Are you familiar with the term "passive income"?

      Have you seen some of the estimated earnings
      of Etsy stores that sell digital downloads -
      templates, stickers, wall art, proverbs, etc.

      If you think that any of this is really hard, then
      it's probably not for you.

      Some people are better suited to having a job
      somewhere so that somebody else can dictate
      what they do with their time and how much they
      are paid, what time they get up and when they
      can get some sleep. And everything else you
      do in life.

      IM and MMO is not for everybody.

    Yes, this is a common problem. Here is the answer.
    Think about all the skills that you have. Have you got a skill that you can sell on Fiverr or People Per Hour? Include things like Translation Skills, or Voice Acting Skills - whatever you have got.
    If you have more than one decide which ones pays the most. Then go for it..
    If you don't feel you have the right skills then you need to do more training. Now, there is so much training online available for free that in 3 - 6 months you could learn lots of saleable skills and try again.
    I suspect that Social Media and Canva skills are not enough for you to earn a living - at least not quickly. However, you can start selling these skills on Fiver etc once you have a job - build things up slowly..
    I think you might be better getting a new job, first, then get the training you need while you are working..

    It wasn't too long ago that I saw a video somewhere, and someone said that you should ask yourself the following question:

    What would you do if money didn't matter?

    You should think very carefully about this question and take some time to reflect on it. If there is something you would answer to this question, then I can only tell you to do exactly that.

    It is completely irrelevant what income potential you see in it. We are entering a time in this world where it is important for people to do what they are meant to do. If at the beginning it's just an hour a day that you invest in this matter, I can only advise you to do it. It will definitely pay off in the end.

    And if you don't find a clear answer to this question, then look at your possible skills and the possible options that the internet offers you, and choose the things that would bring you the most personal joy to work on. And then get started and enjoy the wild ride.

    Just pick one and then focus on that. Don't stop until you get your first client.
