    Basically IM is a big business and I'm slowly learning, I've got a CPA account with CPA.Lead, Peerfly and I registered for AdscendMedia but haven't got a reply or anything, I think my application never went through because it was during the time they were having server problems so I will probably have to apply again. Anyway the point I'm trying to make is that all of this takes time, I'm not going to make instant money and that's okay, I understand but I need a job until I start making money from IM. I'm a college student and I basically have Fridays off hence I need work for Friday and Saturday, the last thing I want to do, is work on a 9-5 job, here in the UK it could even be an 8-6. So with two days of work I came up with something I could do as an individual, I was thinking of repairing PC's because I'm quite good with that and I was also thinking of building websites and offering SEO services because I do have a reseller hosting account but the problem is that I don't really know how to build a site from scratch I got this Lynd4 tutorial Creating a F!rst W3b Sit3 with Dr34mw34v3r CS(4) so I'm going to try this out and see how it goes. I can edit websites and stuff but will need to see how to build a new one from scratch to be able to satisfy my customers once I get someone, I've also got basic on site SEO knowledge that I could offer but other than that I don't know too much I would probably need to outsource quite a bit and I could still make large money but the problem is I'm scared to talk to customers I don't know how to do business with them properly. If I give them an offer and offer a free website can I just modify a nice template to suite their needs? Since its a free website anyway? But what do I tell them? And people like to be able to manage their own content so I guess wordpress would be the best option for a website. Ughh I got so much to ask so much to say but I just don't know how to put it up all together, could anyone advise? I would be meeting these customers in person. Also what do I do about the fact that I don't have a legit copy of dr34mw34v3r?? Anyone can guide me? :hmmmm2::hmmmm2::hmmmm2::hmmmm2::hmmmm2::hmmmm2:

    Sorry, didn't go over my post so I've probably not made any sense in some of the things I wrote. I've got a cracked version, I just don't know if it won't cause me problems?

    Just to add to this thread, I think I've got the knowledge or at least I know what I could do but I lack the confidence, because I've recently seen someone pay over $1000 for a basic website with I think a custom content management area (with no protection or security what so ever, so you can basically edit content on the website without logging in) and the guy (I don't know him) who has created and hosted the site doesn't know shit about SEO because he didn't know why the site wasn't showing up on Google and he said he used SEO but in fact he's an idiot because he couldn't get the site indexed for a keyword so he made the customer buy multiple domains to see if its the domains fault, but one of the funniest things is that he doesn't know what he's doing, he doesn't know how to use meta tags to add description and keywords, what he did is this <meta http-equiv="Keywords", like wtf? I've realized he also started using 4dw0rds to get the site top placement for the keyword of the domain which has 60+ million results 60 000+ results with "keyword" and nearly 2 million inurl but it looks like it has no competition at all because the only 4dw0rd5 advert is for the actual site I'm talking about and the top site for that keyword is a free domain name with 150+ backlinks but I don't think it has any keyword anchor text backlinks. So I could offer a SEO package which would take lets say 3 months to get them to first position of Google and I could outsource this? Sorry for the way I wrote this in, I've been speed writing this and have no time to think and organize it all. Thanks.

    The guy I was talking about is a Web Designer, he makes websites for his customers and I know one of the customers.

    Are you in a hurry or?

    What are you telling us?
    Are you going to pay someone for building up a site for you. Or
    are you trying to build one for yourself? Becouse of the cost of the seo optimizing problems? :)

    I need an offline job for Friday and Saturday until I can get my IM stuff working. Yes I need it now. I've got a reseller host and I was wondering if looking for customers who need websites would be a good idea. I would create a website for my potential customer, host it and do SEO work on it. The thing is, I'm not a professional web designer or anything like that but with the skills I have, I can edit already made templates and make them look of high standard. What I need is advice on what to do? I think even though I rushed my posts above they should be quite clear on what I'm trying to do.

    i feel that you need to spend more time in deciding which route to take.There is so many things in IM that it will overwhelm you for sure,may be causing you to quit it.the best thing to do right now is to take small moves.I am an adsense guy rather than a cpa one,so i will suggest you to build micro niche sites - its the easy way of building as well as ranking them on the serp.Try it out.

    1.) Take a look at your keyboard
    2.) Locate the button that has ''Enter'' written on it
    3.) USE IT
