    Lost my job today - retrenched/redundant. I was one of 38 that lost their jobs because the company was going broke. Kinda feel like I've been kicked in the balls with a huge boot and already starting to stress because I know there is very little work where I live. I guess if I look at the positives rather than the negatives I'll prob get through this shit but I'm a bit lost/numb to think atm.

    Now I have more time on my hands(other than job searching) I'm going to focus more on IM. Been dabbling in IM for a while now about 4 years I think. Had small success hitting $500+ weeks from clickbank and have sold some sites in the high $x,xxx range. Only prob is since google started doing all their major updates way back when, I totally suck at ranking sites and generating traffic! Not just the G, a lot of sites I was using to generate traffic has changed they way they work since then :(

    I'm very good at converting traffic into sales as I still make sales of the very small traffic that I do get, but definitely not enough to pay the bills. Just suck at ranking and traffic these days! I have a few sites - 6 in total plus a couple of youtube channels which make me one or two sales a week. These mainly just promote clickbank products and adsense.

    Anyway, not going to wine like a bitch! Think I just need some good solid advice on how I can get my ass in gear and get my earnings up to help pay the bills until I get another job or even better so I can make a full time income online.

    So,
    I already have a few sites that do convert.
    Have 4 youtube channels all with vids on them promoting products(one channel has over 80 vids)
    Rankings are shit to none - This is what I need to work on as it's my biggest weakness! I suck at SEO & SEM
    I'm now on a budget - a very strict one with next to nothing.
    I did buy a license for GSA SER a few days ago(didn't know I was going to be put off work but still, I'm glad I bought it) - Learning how to use.
    I have Market Samurai had it for about 2 years now.
    I don't expect to increase earnings over night.

    What do you guys recommend I focus most of my time on. I know the obvious will probably generating targeted traffic but where to start and how "THESE DAYS"??
    Been reading like a mad man for the last few hours and I'm always reading threads in BHW especially journal threads and SEO stuff but it's not really sinking in, if that makes sense? Info overload perhaps? Or SEO just fries my brain?


    I know one thing though, I'm never going to give up!!!

    You should defenitly work on getting more clickbank videos up and rank them keeping in mind that quality > quantity.

    You want advice? Well if you want to make money you need money. Also rankings are equal to banking. Just going to let you think about that

    a whole bag of ice would be good, lol.

    Thanks for the replies everyone, if anyone else has any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Some good news - picked up 3 hours work a day for 2 weeks to help out an old mate as a cleaner :D
    Will definitely help with the bills but still need to either get more work or increase earnings online.

    Started uploading more videos this morning time to get busy!

    If you are good at conversion, then create videos and post in the JV section for someone who can rank the videos and split the earnings.

    Sounds like you already know what your doing - just put more effort in now and you should be able to scale it all up.
