This is kinda awkward

So I made this thread about three years ago

https://www.warriorforum.com/main-in...ould-i-do.html

and now I'm coming back because my story turned about kinda of different. I didn't take any of the advice that was given and instead focused on the YouTube channels, the same ones that I called unreliable in the thread , it did very well blowing the goal that I had at first out of the water, but then about 4 months ago Google started acting weird they suspended a channel of mine for no reason I appealed and got it back and then the same thing happened with another channel and I got it. This Saturday however they suspended them again but this time appeals don't work for some reason, a friend of mine told me you just need to send appeals more but I'm sick of them not only does the revenue decrease sharply they treat creators like garbage,I'm not the only complaining most content creators do, so I started searching again about ways to make money online and feel so bad about the three years that I wasted doing nothing, I'm back to square one basically.
The thing is now I need to make some money something like 60$/month(Yes sixty dollars) to be able to pay some bills as a start, it sounds so bad I know , what do think I can do to get something like that? I have about 8 hours to devote daily I can spend 3~4 hours working doing something that net me 2~3$ per day and the remaining hours I will spend researching and reading. I honestly can't start a website now or promote a product I need some cash flow I don't want to throw money at something I don't know a whole lot about.
My English is good and I have decent video editing skills
*edit:I started a gig at fiver for doing voice-overs for cheap I got lots of clicks but no orders sadly.
Thanks in advance.

    The thing that stands out to me is that you place no value on yourself or your time. You are honestly willing to work for less than $1 per hour?

    I'm sure you could start a thread in the 'Warriors for Hire' section of this forum and do something that will earn you $60 per month. That is where I would start.

    First, you need to identify your strengths and the value that you can offer.

        It can be difficult to make good decisions when you're desperate and/or depressed. It sounds as if you're bouncing around just hoping something will work. If it were as simple as signing up on a site like Fiverr then everyone would be wildly successful online.

        But, the problem with Fiverr and freelance sites is that they inherently bring competition. It's hard to stand out that way.

        In my mind, the name of the game is to be different. Offer something that others can't or aren't. Give people a reason to buy from you instead of someone else. If you're doing what other people are doing - like selling voiceovers on Fiverr - it's too easy for customers to choose someone else.

    You are depressed because you convinced yourself 'it's easy'. As you said above - you ignored the advice given to you.

    Where would be now financially - had you taken that advice and acted on it?

    Where will you be a year from now if you do nothing today?

    It's a trap many new marketers fall into - the belief they know more than they do (when starting out) and the belief that earning "a little" should be simple.

    If all you want is $60/month you could spent 2-3 days a MONTH raking yards or cutting grass or shoveling snow - or standing on a street corner and begging...and make more than that.

    Lot easier than learning and building an IM business. Aim higher - DO more - and get more.

        The good news is that you are building an internet business, so you will be selling your product/services all over the world, and those customers don't expect to pay third-world rates.

        The "pay rate here" is totally immaterial.

        In fact, if you are charging third-world rates, the perceived value of your "buy button" will automatically be lower and can actually reduce the potential for sales.

        Don't base your pricing on what your next door neighbor in a third-world country might be willing to pay.

        Instead, think about what you might be able to charge on Rodeo Drive (in Beverly Hills).

  • Do you have something of value worth $60, that you can bring to your market/niche?

    If you want to make $60 per month online, then find an online product that will pay you a monthly residual commission of at least $60 per month for 8 to 12 months, for promoting that product as an affiliate. That way you only need to make one sale per year to pay your annual bills.

    What you want is laser focus. Do your research on the product. Read reviews, watch actual testimonial videos from genuinely satisfied clients, and only promote those products online with well written articles linking to a new YouTube channel, solely used to educate the prospects of the benefits of that product.

    Create a bonus unique to your skill set and offer it to your prospects once they've emailed you their proof of payment that they have purchased via your affiliate link.

    If you can create content for your youtube channels, then it should be easy for you to create a bonus video product to complement the affiliate product you are promoting.

    Then find more products to market online as an affiliate, and create more bonus products to offer your prospects who buy the products via you affiliate links. Soon you will have your own sales funnel to promote online with all the bonus you have created.

    I know you may not feel at your best right now, but just get back in the saddle, and make another appointment with your financial goals, and meet them.

    Keep working towards your financial goal and on create online systems to help you achieving them.

    With everything in life, you will want to have laser focus and discipline to see it through, then you are going to be in the financial success you always dreamed of being.

    If you don't have much capital to invest in your online business, then create a video product on how to grow your YouTube channel into an income generating machine before google shuts your channel down. Create a thread in the WSO section of this forum and test the market to see who is interested in buying your product. Here's a crowd here that will pay you $60 or more, for sharing you packaged experience with them.

    It takes the same amount of energy you will spend on promoting a $60 to promote a $600 or $6000 product. The same person who will buy the $60 for a quality product will pay you $6000 for another quality product they may like.

    Why are you back to square one? Don't you still have all the content you created already for your YT channel? Can't you repurpose that? Take on a new partner and get another video channel on YT or elsewhere?

    At the very least, go read this thread ... it contains lots of "quick cash" ideas.

    What to do if you're desperate

    Good luck,

    I can't reply to your PM, or give you any way to contact me publicly as the mods see it as advertising for some reason. I have asked the mods to allow me to PM you, but I have not heard back from them. I am interested in fulfilling your request, but it seems like there may be some hurdles to get communication working bilaterally on this website. Sorry.
