    Hello, I'm Paul and I'm a new member. I've discovered this forum when searching for how to make money on internet.

    Everything started two years ago, with this process. I was determined to earn some extra money and I was sure that the internet is the perfect place. So of course I was attracted by "just today sign up now" etc. Soon I realised all of them were scams, it was very hard because I almost decided to give up.

    Next step was freelancing. My only "talent" is logo and poster designing. I'm good with photoshop and good enough with illustrator. This was also a hard step. Because nobody knew me and nobody wanted to hire me for their projects. I had no rating no feedback and less qualifications than other users. So the next step was participating to contests. There I had the impression that my chances were bigger but...After 15-30 failed contests I wasn't so sure about that..After that I've decided to look somewhere else. I was impressed by the prizes, waaaay bigger compared to the previous one. $400-$600 for a contest.

    My chances were really small. In one contest there are at least 50-60 designers with 3-4 entries each. And now I gave up on this..

    I'm thinking joining a graphic designers team but it's very hard to find a part-time job. Also I'm thinking of starting selling things on internet, like famous brands products, buy them from wholesale, from china and sell them on ebay or local websites. I don't know..

    Now I want to ask you, what would you recommand me? I have 3-4 hours/day to spend on making money at this moment but things may change if I'm going to see some results.

    Thank you! And sorry for my poor english!

    First, you didn't give up and I admire that!
    I would recommend you doing some Fiverr logo designs or something like that and invest your earnings somewhere else.

    Before you start importing goods, try dropshipping to test the waters and if you're doing well then scale it up!

    Yeah, I had a small experience with Fiverr already. But it's limited to 2-3 offers since I've created my account.
    I'm opened to other ways of earning money, not just related to graphic designing.
    I don't want to make this for a living, not from start, just want 100$ per week. This would pe perfect for me.
