Making some extra money, trying to

9 replies
I've been trying to find a way to make an extra $100-$200 a week for a while now. My main idea was Seo placement for businesses in my area and outsourcing the seo.

Has anyone had any success with this?

Any other ways people are making some extra money? I am open to anything and always willing to learn a new trade.

    Porter,

    You have to first know what your skills are and then decide which of those skills is something that a business or person would be willing to pay you to do for them, weather it being seo, building websites, setting up facebook pages, etc. then simply offer said service for $100-$200 then you will only have to sell your service to one or two clients a week to reach your goal.

    There are many posts on this forum on ways to make money, so do some digging and you will find alot of hidden gems.

    I wish you much success,

    Martin

      Well I kinda feel that I've wasted the last 5 years I've spent online. I really haven't learned much about seo or making blogs or sites. Although I've been in and around this industry for 5 years I feel that I have no useful skills.

        What did you do online for 5 years? Just curious...

        Most of us can admit to having wasted time.

        I encourage you to decide what you're going to learn & do, and focus diligently for a while.

          Well it's kinda a sore subject. Basically I was bouncing program to program using advertising methods that were garbage IMO. I blew lots of money on different programs and such. Always was looking for an honest mentor type person to give tips and pointers. Back 5 years ago when I was 19 I knew then that the Internet would be what made me rich, I still feel the same way but after so many failures it becomes harder to keep moving forward. But I'm not going to stop and I still am going to put all I can in to this.

            Porter,

            I'm sorry to hear about your failures, but I have read many stories of online marketers and business owners who had many failures before they found success, so keep your hopes up, your attitude positive and keep trying and I'm sure you will find success.

            All the best,

            Martin

    I go with pretty much what Martin has said.
    The reality is that $200 per week to average is really not hard at all, you just need to pick something that people want that you would enjoy doing.

    If I had to suggest only one thing to someone new who had limited knowledge of offline dealings with business owners but who wanted to easily make 400-800 per month then I would suggest a wso by Bob Ross that talks about offering printing and graphic design services to small businesses.

    Why SEO? Do you do SEO (just curious is all).
    If that's the way you wanted to go, why not just go for it - do some numbers and shoot for a goal.

    Assuming you've sourced a suitable outsource solution, what is your markup going to be?
    Taking your goal of $200 a week.
    Double that to roughly cover taxes and expenses (that may be close or way off, you do the figures).
    You need to make 20.8k per year.

    If your average markup is $200 per month for a monthly SEO service that you outsource...and your client's average 6 months with you...you'll need 17 clients (per year) to hit your goal. Therefore, you need to obtain a new client every 3 weeks.

    Other assumptions will result in alertnative figures.

    If you find that appealing, go for it!
