So I headed over to those sites and found a few clients. I found a guy who paid me $50 for an article 3 weeks ago. I found a client who paid me $110 for 5 squidoo lenses....I've ranked all her lenses on the first page of google for their keywords in less than 3 days and now she's a repeat customer.
The bottom line is that if you need money, you can't wait for business to fall in your lap. You have to get after it. I'm currently spending 3 hours per day trying to find new clients...is this a dream of mine? No. But it will keep me going until my other projects take off.
If you have a service you can provide to others....you're valuable! The work is endless if you make yourself visible.
