Providing IM Services - How Do I Learn The Skill?

14 replies
Hi warriors, i just visited Warrior-For-Hire section of forum and i saw lots of IM services people are providing such as article writing, designing, fb/twitter likes and followers, seo services, backlinking, etc.

Though am not that good in article writing but i can do others. So i asked myself how and where do i learn any of those IM services, so i can start doing it for others? and how long will take to master it?

Please any answer to this question? I don't mind paying to learn it.

    There is no need to pay anyone to learn.

    On this forum you will find information on everything you re looking for.

    My advice, first you need to learn a specific skill and then make sure you know it well before you offer it to others for a fee. This is important if you want to be successful online.

    You need to build your profile and only way to do it is to provide quality services.

    Just go through the forum and search for information you need.

    Ask yourself what your strengths are, and then develop that strength into a service.

    Although saying that, I don't think certain things can be learned - like design, unless it is already inbuilt to you.

    And whatever you do, don't take shortcuts - I have hired plenty who advertise services and truth be told, they just aren't good at them.

    One thing is for sure and that is the fact that you are in the right forum!
    Here are some tips to pick up free information inside this forum:

    1) Check out the WSO Forum (Classifieds as well) and filter/search by [FREE WSO. You will be asked for a Name and Email and then directed to your "free download" of a report that does IM stuff.
    2) Get on IM marketers lists to see what they offering and pay close attention to everything they do (i.e. reverse engineer their process).

    Browse and keep track of the main forum "Main Internet Marketing Discussion" and just keep doing what you doing...

    Also a membership to the War Room is priceless. Information in there is Golden! And its all free

      Hi Infonet,

      My advice, no matter what service you end up providing, is to stay customer focused. You stay focused by answering emails thoroughly and as quickly as possible....... it's obviously more complicated than that... but that is a good start.

      And remember to over-deliver whenever it makes sense.

      I wish you all the luck with your ideas and endeavors...... you are on the right track;0) and don't forget about Fiverr!

    First of all, are you sure you want to sell your own services? That is baaically trading time for money.

    2 ways to do it otherwise: resell for more from other sellers or hire other people to work for you.

    Assuming you still want your own service, here is how to learn it:

    First choose the service. Say it is providing twitter followers. Next, you look at people who already do it. Read everything and contact them. Either build a relashionship or keep asking until they drain. So, you would find out that there are active and inactive followers.

    Then, how do you get inactive, cheap followers: first you need to have a huge list of accounts. Then you need a tool to mass follow with them. So you would need to create, buy the account list and get a tool. That is it.

    Assuming that you do not know that, you would have to use logic and communication as I explained.

    Next, how do you offer active followers, expensive ones. To do that you would need to promote the twitter account of your customers, by either having a responsive account this lots of followers and tweeting there or by using other inexpensive traffuc methods.

    And that is it. You can now sell your service.

    However, you still need to learn writing a pursuasive sales letter to get people to buy from you rather than your competition.


    Same thing with everything: graphics -> you would learn that people use photoshop or other special tools. So you get them and learn to use them. Articles: you would see that mostly they learned to write in college and through experience.

    You ask how they do it, but you ask in specific. Like, hey what tool do you use to create those awesome graphics?.


    Finally, I do not recommed that you follow this model unles you do not have any money to invest. What I recommend is that you either resell or hire people which still earns you money but requires little time to do. There are many article sellers who write "we have a team of writers" in their sales page which practically means that the owner hired those writers.

    However, if you offer inactive followers and use an automated tool it may still be effective as you do not need to do a thing other than launch the software.

    - writing and designing ARE services
    - the rest is scam... deception... lies... money-grabbing... (thought you may want to know )

    First you must figure out what tasks you are good at. Maybe you're good at article writing, or maybe you're good at ranking websites, or maybe you're great at designing websites.

    The point is you must first discover what you are good at before you can determine what service to offer.

    After you do that, you must find out whether or not there is a market (or more importantly a NEED) for the service that you hope to offer.

      Well, for you to be able to provide the services you want, you either have to possess them, or learn them first. And you have to be extra good at it, since there are a whole lot of competitors out there who will outbid you when you try to sell your services. Designing is one skill that could be learned in school, but you have to possess a talent for it. So is writing. However, if you are really determined to learn, any of the skills in internet marketing can be learned anywhere online. Just pick one and be really good at it then start marketing your services.

    Buy Adobe Photoshop and work on some custom "PSD" files. Per-fect your craft and get good with ebooks, banners, websites, headers, footers, and etc... then offer your services on your site, fiverr, and here on Warrior Forum. Should be a nice investment opportunity for you.

    You really just need to experiment and see what you like doing and then master the skill. For example, if you want to try article writing, practice writing a few articles for your blog. If you want to try web design grab a program like Dreamweaver and follow some simple tutorials. I offer a writing service because I actually like writing.

    Offering a service is a great way to make some quick cash but you might get caught up in offering services that you forget about setting up your own internet marketing business.
