    Now really I know no one here knows me but I've been reading through this forum for some time now. Please know that telling me to not give up would not help much. Right now I am rather desperate. I have spent so much money on making a fiverr reselling site but I've got nothing in return. I really did spend money I DON'T HAVE. First of all on hosting and domain then on designing the website(hired a designer) and now the biggest part where my money was lost is BING ADS.

    I read a journey on BHW and the thread poster claimed that Bing Ads would work perfectly for this purpose. My website certainly has a great design(in my opinion) but I have no idea why I wasn't getting any sales. Please don't tell me to try other money making methods because I put so much work and money into this site and I don't want it to be a waste.

    My birthday is in a couple days and back when I started this project my goal was to have it up and running generating some decent income buy that time. But it seems like I FAILED

    If any of you has any advice or can give me some guidance it would be much appreciated.

    Setting up a website is often just the first step. You need to contantly tweak it to optimise sales. If you are getting traffic but no sales there is a good chance your call to actions aren't effective and you're not selling your products to the reader. Does your website look legit? Why not chuck some testimonials on there? Give your phone number out maybe so people can discuss your services with you? At a minimum give an email address for asking questions. It's all about making the customer feel at ease with your business, then they will buy off you.

    How many visitors have you had with no conversions?

    There is a lot more to selling stuff online than just offering a product. If you want any help I can take a look for you.

    I noticed that most of the BHW methods doesn't work "out of the box", if they do - they get saturated too fast. I had only one method that implemented word by word(well not exactly) that made me some good cash, but the method was saturated in matter of days. You have to implement a really smart twist to get it work, which i failed to do so far, but i am not giving up, neither should YOU.

    You can try to do some freelancing, if you have some IT skills. I have been doing this for an year and my profit was around ~$20k, not that impressive. The problem with freelancing is the competition, especially for new freelancers. If you want to maximize your chances of winning a project, you should always do a demo or a sample or whatever your project is about, you'll waste a lot of time this way, but you will have a chance to take a project, otherwise you will have almost ZERO chances.
    My advise is to use your spare time to try to do some freelancing, if you don't see results in a month just quit, i have been lucky enough to make $1000 in my first month, but i must admit it was a pure luck.

    PS: I have been lurking this forum(Making Money section) for sometime now, but i didn't registered because i have nothing useful to share, so guys please don't hate me.

    i'm with you brother.. don't give up...

    the reasons are :

    1. you don't have adequate skills to do things by yourself
    2. you're lazy enough to learn new things (photoshop, html, css, php, sql i believe are really essential)

    that's why I am learning today how to :

    do html, css, php, photoshop and illustrator, mysql. It maybe will take me about two years to learn these as I am working full time as an office clerk and part time in a wood working shop (yeah I know how to make tables and chairs).

    CHEERS!

    drey from the Philippines. :)

    Think of it this way.. If it was so easy that anyone can do it then anyone can come at any moment any take away your success... that's not how it works. You work hard for money, and under most circumstances, what you work hard for will pay dividends for a long time. keep working bro

    elecsho, you are not capable of doing it , just give up!! Stop wasting our time m8

    ok, that was a negative reinforcement tactic. You obviously took initiatives and worked towards your goal, it looks like you just need some critical feedback on your site. I majored in business and marketing, and if you want, I can take a look at your site and give you some feed back. pm me if you want. by the way, am still in the process of doing research for my making money endeavors. :peace:Cheer up!

    Give up, more cash for the rest ;-)

    Youll always fail a few times before you generate some cash. Sometimes the best thing is to close bhw tab and focus on the projects. Get a decent time managment!

    Dont be weak and give up! Dont do it for the cash, do it for the fun!
