    Guys I took a break from IM for a while. I've come back and everything is different.

    I am negative in my unemployment account and bassicly have to live off my gf because I can't find a job.

    I need to get back in the game but where can I start with litterally NO money to spend. I have alot of IM tools from back in the day, scrapebox, AMR, bookmarking demon, but I can't even afford captcha solving on these. I've tried fiverr but I get no sales ever and it's practically working for peanuts anyways.

    I'm not asking for anything other then some advice on maybe a money making method I can try, ive tried so many and they never work for me. :/

    Make a blogspot blog, make it look nice, watch google trends, copy/paste news from other sites (optional - edit them a little bit = better), bookmark each post to StumbleUpon and Digg, make some comments on fresh and related pages, monetize.

    It's not going to make you rich but it will make a few $ to buy your own domain and some captchas :)

    Set up a PayPal acct and start offering services. Scrapebox blasts, content creation, web 2 posting, etc. Should be enough work available at BHW to make some cash

    It's tough out there right now and more and more people are looking to make a living online. You should try craigslist though you can probably make some cash building some basic websites for people.

    Offline SEO for local businesses bro. It's the quickest way to make money on demand, just be sure to pay your taxes:D

    Keep your head up.

    I was at The Salvation Army (a homeless shelter here in the US) last Christmas. I was giving plasma at $25 a pop to make ends meet.

    Not like I'm a millionaire now, but it's coming around, and I have some really exciting projects getting off the ground. Want to help? LOL. But seriously - keep your head up. You'll get there, you're obviously driven to succeed - or at least provide for yourself. ;-)

    Sorry but that's life. Look at the above poster, he turned his life around, and I bet he busted his ass, and I bet no one spoonfed him.

    You can find a job. Anyone that wants to work can find a job. It's just a matter of whether YOU WANT to do the job.

    Sure you may not be able to get some white collar stuff, but I am sure you can get a job flipping burgers, cleaning toilets, etc.

    IM is not a way to make a living when you're initially broke. Get some steady money first via a real job and then gradually make the transition. Good luck.

    Start by selling your services to get some capital to invest elsewhere.
    Twitter and CPA marketing might be the next place you want to go for some fast money.

    You can always get a shitty minimum wage job to fund all this in the meantime

    I agree with Gyuman82. You should try to find a job first even if you don't like the work you are doing. There are plenty of jobs out there.

    Once you have one you can focus on IM in your spare time and build a sustainable business. Just be patient.

    Good luck man !

    You know what, I get tired of people saying you can get a job, there's plenty of work out there. It's not the case here in the UK, especially if you live outside the South East (London). Maybe it is where you live.

    I have my own business and employ people to work from home for me over Christmas. Before anyone considers pm'ing me, you have to live within 5 miles of where I live! I ran an ad in the local paper for local workers and got 200 calls within the first few hours. That was for 4 jobs earning £90 a week working from home. And it is hard work and low pay.

    A national supermarket chain opened a warehouse close to where I live. There were 400 jobs available. In 3 days they had over 5000 applications and had to close the website to any new applications. Oh, btw, these were shitty warehouse jobs or clerical/office type of jobs.

    Also the standard of applications is interesting too. The supermarket also quoted they were surprised by the level of qualifications of the people applying for the jobs. Many were degree educated applicants applying for shelf stacking jobs who can't work anywhere!

    We have millions of immigrants here working while we have 3 million UK citizens unemployed claiming benefits. Where is the logic there?

    Follow some of the advice given here, start hustling, don't watch the tele, don't drink or do drugs and exercise regularly.

    We have all been there trust me! Just remember everyday is a potential new start! The less you do, the less you do and the more you do, the more you do!

    Go to the "Hire a Freelancer" and equivalent sections of IM forums and see what tasks you can do (this will save you listing fees since you're simply responding to other people's requests, as opposed to having your own sales thread). Possibly write some articles. Of course that is laborious but you can do that until you have enough cash to invest in other ventures.

    This is spot on. If you don't live in a big city you're screwed here in the North of England.

    This is true I was in the same spot a while ago on JSA and close to being homeless. What I did was start off with youtube and sharecash put a lot of hours into mass uploading videos had over 2k videos fake generators and all that crap that made me the cash to buy some domains and hosting you should give it a go its easy and not really much work also it is auto pilot till the videos are banned they stay up for 2/3 months most of the time so they will keep earning for a while you can upload as many as you want I do 10 videos per account.


    Im in the south east and its the same here.

    Just do what you can do and make solutions to your problems. You can offer services and let them pay for the services you could give to your customers.
