RE: Internet Marketing - Simplified

Different ways to approach it. It all depends on your niche. I do agree it's important to focus and master ONE thing. In my opinion, that ONE thing should be copywriting.

RE: Which one the best online earning marketplace?

UpWork you need to be qualified. People don't hire just anyone. Plus, you can make more money from it.

Fiverr a lot more newbie friendly. But, you'll earn a lot less.

RE: Instagram Influencer 1mm+ here - looking for ideas to generate leads for featured posts on my pa

Why don't you put in your bio: "DM me for a shout out on my page!" I know on Instagram a shout out is essentially the same thing as being featured. That way people who are interested will hit you up.
