Maybe I'm too old to figure out all this stuff... you know, like you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
I just haven't been able to get ANYTHING going with ANY of my sites! It took me almost two years just to get my old site up to $150/month so I could sell it for a mortgage payment and get rid of the hosting fees that I couldn't afford anymore.
Every new thing I try I'm hearing, "This is the last thing you'll ever have to do..." Right. Months later...nothing. I'm so tired. And I absolutely cannot afford to keep buying this and buying that, subscribing to this and subscribing to that. My disability check just won't go that far after paying the mortgage!
The last thing I bought was Bring the Fresh. Great program! Not one sale yet, months later. But I can't afford the Full Disclosure, can't afford to invest in the link juicer, don't have the money to keep buying up domain names, etc. So while I did learn some new stuff about Market Samurai (the free version) and Clickbank, I'm still not making any sales because I can't afford to take anything I've learned to the next level. I have no cash for all of these monthly subscriptions at $17/mo here, $37/mo there, it's just not happening.
We (husband & me; both on disability) pay for one monthly hosting fee that allows us unlimited domain names, but I can't afford to keep buying domain names!
Maybe I'm just one lousy Internet marketer when it comes to trying to do all of this by myself with the free stuff because I simply do not have the cash to keep investing in this or that to take anything to the next level. And I can't afford to pay anyone to do it for me either because that would just be another payment.
I've thought of rewriting and repackaging all of my articles into PLR packages, but then I'd have to find a FREE way to market those too and nothing free has worked for me yet, so why would that?
Maybe I need some kind of a schedule or step-by-step plan on "how" to use all of the genuine FREE tools to make "something" work.
Meanwhile, my primary site (bookmarks) is slipping in Alexa rank and traffic, and Google even zero'd out my PR2 rank on all of my most visited pages! What's up with that??
I'm just really blown away by everything right now and my frustration level's getting beyond control.
Anyway, that's it. Thanks for letting me vent. :-/
(As an aside, I even keep 15 ads fresh on craigslist for my bookmarks, I have an ad on eBay's free classifieds that I keep renewed and my husband posts flyers around our area; and I check craigslist gigs every day in every major US city... )
