So I'm in this really bad spot I never thought I'd be in. I recently left an abusive relationship, I've been self employed for 9 years, in the publishing business...(print advertising) I have the smarts to learn web marketing, affiliate marketing, etc. As of yet, I know VERY, little about this whole thing. What I do know is I need to find a way to make a living FAST. I have 3 months left of my expenses being paid & I have no car, no longer have the business and no job obviously..oh and no money. I desperately, desperately need some good advice on where to start. I did start with the google sniper..but my pre sell sucks & I'm not ranking - I think I may have spammed the keyword but I am not sure? Also, I got the domain names a bit prematurely which I used a credit card for...it's just all bad! I also thought I chose the right keyword but now I'm not so sure. Please do not take advantage of my situation...I've had too much of that to handle. To be completely honest, I am considering suicide. Please don't flag me or report me as suicidal!! I won't kill myself...it's more of death wish really. I was told to read through this forum as it would help me to gain knowledge in internet marketing but all I'm seeing is everyone marketing to each other??? Can someone at least point me in the right direction maybe?? I found some "people program" thing but it looks sketch to me..they seem rather pushy and how the hell do you get paid? Or is it just numbers? I'm pretty hopeless at this point. Anybody?

    I am going to send you a pm.

    If you really do have your back against the wall... I can help you come out swinging.

    That is what I did. I haven't looked back since.

    Life is a series of peaks and valleys. Right now it sounds as if you have rolled into the valley.

    Winston Churchill once said.... "The definition of success is the ability to go from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm."

    I am living proof that this is true.

    I have seen success and I have seen failure.

    Today I am moderately in the middle and cool with it. There is hope. You have stumbled into the best place to learn. Your post was not related to the "offline marketing" field but I think if you want to make money as soon as tomorrow you will shoot me an email. I can guide you through the process.

    Easy peasy.


    Jobs are over rated. Don't get a job. Get an offline client or two. Then you will be all good.

    I can sympathize with you, I'm in a bit of a pickle myself. But the most important thing to do is never give up. All I can offer to you is words and I hope that'll be of some use.
    Good on you Amir.
    (Not to be rude, but can you send me some information over to me as well? I'm extremely interested.)


    Good luck.

    You're not alone. Alot of us have our backs up against the wall and you probably know from your print advertising work that most of your local businesses do too.

    This forum is an ocean of good information and contacts, you just have to treasure hunt for what's useful to you so you don't go broke.

    (Amir, I second kwazi's comment and would be interested in any helpful information because the old isn't working so well in this economy.)

    Having been in print advertising you already have a lot of assets to work with including your business contacts and relationships. That will transition well into web design or internet marketing. I'll PM you with an idea or two that may help.

    The quickest way here would be to be a manager - that is, go out and get jobs in, and then outsource them.

    Start off with simple services such as SEO, simple website building and article writing - look at websites that sell these things and brush up on the lingo and benefits.

    Then look on this site in the Warriors for hire section and on places like oDesk. You'll be able to outsource at less money than you charge.

    As time goes on and money starts coming in, you can invest in your eduction - you still don't have to do all these things you offer, but it helps to know them, at least in a little detail.

    The great thing about online marketing fro offline businesses is that you can work hours to suit. This means that as you start out, you can still take a job such as cleaning to get some essential pennies in, and use other hours to drum up business.

    Chin up
