    Hey guys, Im having serious trouble on getting a cash flow through Facebook. I sell everything i have for 5 dollars (10 dollars for programs), but no one steps up. I then drop it too a dollar for everything (ebooks, movies, music) and programs for 5 dollars. With a great offer which is, first 3 purchases are 1 dollar (5 dollars for programs). Then everything is 5 dollars(10 dollars for programs)once you get 23 dollars worth from me,afterwards all future purchases are 2dollars off from there on out. BUT NOTHIINNGG!! Absolutely nothinng is working!I thought they would be great offers. I don't have a website, and I no longer can spend cash on the internet, due to spree with my mothers card. I have not built my list, but im still fully working on it, due to soo many items. And I have no idea about business. Nothing is working. No one is buying and i feel like a stupid ass, as if im missing one thing to make this all come together. But i just don't know what it is. But any who, this is a way not to make money, due to bad planning/organization. I know for sure.
    What methods, ways, or anything to help can I use to get this working? To make $1000 dollars a week like you guys. To be successful like you guys.? What can I do?

    What are you selling ?
    If your products are not interesting you wont get cash...
    Since how many time are you doing this ? Money won't come without efforts ;)

    movies, music and books ... seriously? i would never pay for such things nor would any1 i know who uses facebook.. we got groceries to buy and this world is an expensive place to live in.
    so forget about such stupid things to sell

    on the brightside, try selling groceries like potatoes or cauliflowers .. u might actually make a real business and real money and good future ;)

    on the darkside, you fukked ur own mom? dang dude.. whose gonna trust u now! heh acting desperate scares away customers even if they like ur shiznit.. i think u probably need to focus on school and forget about money till u learn the rules of living and making a living both ;)

    How about starting by learning to lay out your posts so folks can read them :-

    • Hey guys, I'm having serious trouble on getting a cash flow through Facebook.
    To me that means the techniques you use are not the right one to generate revenue

    • I sell everything i have for 5 dollars (10 dollars for programs), but no one steps up.
    • I then drop it too a dollar for everything (ebooks, movies, music) and programs for 5 dollars.
    • With a great offer which is, first 3 purchases are 1 dollar (5 dollars for programs).
    • Then everything is 5 dollars(10 dollars for programs)once you get 23 dollars worth from me,afterwards all future purchases are 2dollars off from there on out. BUT NOTHIINNGG!!

    I read into all that as gobbledygook

    • Absolutely nothing is working!I thought they would be great offers.
    You were wrong!


    • I don't have a website, and I no longer can spend cash on the internet, due to spree with my mother's card.
    I hope and trust you pay your mother back!

    Break bypass the rest of your points

    • What can I do?

    I do not want to be hard on you but if you have worked in the ‘Cack Handed' way you put the OP together then you have contributed 100% to your own failure!

    You do not spray paint a car by throwing a can of paint all over the body!

    Yet it seems to me that you seem to think you can work in a slap dash way on the Internet and make money
    Well let me tell you - You are Wrong!

    If you are not too lazy to read what I have said, because for you to succeed you have to get the basics right!
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Im willing to get the basics right, Im sorry everybody.. But I am extremely new to this. I have no idea where to start. And graduated high school not to long ago. I am a very new person to the business world. Blackhat world and the world in general. So please do not treat me like an idiot or think I'm lazy. I will work hard for anything I put my mind to. May I copy your template steel to revise my post?

    Try to upgrade your items and their ranges for example if you sell t-shirts, make them available in many different colors which should be available at the same time in different size range. Come with a new look and new price list, good luck !

    1 thing I like about you, is that you have the will and motivation to succeed.
    keep that up, and don't be dissappointed with failures, or well yea go ahead be mad at them, but dont be a looser. That itself will convert over time and make you a winner.

    And yes, people do like reading and looking at things that seem neat and organised (one of the biggest rules of trying to sell anything!)

    Also i recommend try creating some small sites without any coding language like on weebly or yola.com platforms. will give u something new to learn and its easy as well. if you get good with that, you can easily be selling your web design skills to your classmates or future businessmen.

    Find your niche, your passion, and look at the best competition in that. Learn their tricks, mimic them and finally one up them one day. Even if u don't reach the one up level, you will have reached quite far up to really care (having paid back ur loans, etC)

    all the best

    Yea you are 100% right. And that is a great Idea! I can read up on my books about coding language. And use some of my photoshop skills. My list for everything is almost complete. And the template looks really great. What should I say to them, or advertise to the people on facebook? Once I finish the website?

    Damn bro, it must suck to know that you totally are screwed in the "make money" field. Now, get off your ass, and start using our BST section to make money.

    haha for all you know, fb might not be the right target audience for ur products. try this forum or other forums with some proofs that u have the products. u need a bit of techie audience than normal people to buy such things..
