    I am in the verge of giving up this online marketing stuff.All I can achieve is merely few $ per day less than 4$ daily.I am still not able to solve all the mysteries of website creation,all other part,I seem to be getting the solution.
    I have a doubt-if I need to be successful in making money online,what technical skills I need to learn.Currently I cant afford to outsource as I absolutely have no pennys to pay for.Also I dont have any idea of php and css.All I know is wordpress and when I create a wordpress blog and throw up some content I am never getting any CPA or clickbank offer to even click through.All I can get is few impressions in adsense and that is not helping me either.Even if I get 1000 impressions or so all I earn is a few cents and dollars.
    I would like to know if I have to learn some basics of some technical skills what would that be,do I need to learn HTML,CSS or PHP.
    As a newbie what technical skills do I need to learn to get over the hurdle of website creation.I have wandered around several months trying to create a classy looking site hoping that it would convert,but its of no use.No real course explains this process.
    Can someone guide me on what do I need to learn.

    Hi!

    Open your eyes, use your brain and learn/read.

    That´s what i did.
    Do not only look here for useful information, use many many other forums to learn more methods, maybe you find more information that you ever heard of before..

    A good way to start, is to learn wordpress and php, a little bit coding.
    Next step, is to setup a site, learn how to SEO the site through backlinking in different ways (Articles, Forum Signatures, Blog Commenting, etc)

    If you don´t like making blogs for small profit, read many of the ebooks shared here in BHW, the more you read the more you "understand" how you can be succesful on internet.

    Try it, i guess more people can reply in this thread..

    Like the post above this.
    Or learn a "skill" like php or java or data entry (maybe it's not a skill :D )
    I recommend you to learn one skill and be expert in it.

    If you learn java (for example), there will be always people looking for a (professional) java programmer.

    No, pretty much any old web surfer can make money. You just have to be motivated and stick with something until the end.

    I don't think you need any technical skills although if you got or can learn then it will always be added advantage...

    If you want to be IM then learn it... Tons of information are here and some are explained with step by step... If you are not making money that means you haven't went through your research first and jump started in making website...

    First read and learn then start experimenting with it... With time you will advanced through it and will make money also...

    I recommend finding a service that people want. Once you find out what people want work hard to deliver it to them. Anyone can put up a website, or pay someone $50 to do it for them. You need to do more than that, you need to provide value to your service. I'v help a few people get started in the online business world, for FREE. I make money only if you make money. I won't just help anyone, you need to work hard and build your business. There's nothing more than I hate is when someone just talks about what their going to do, and does nothing, gives up. If you're serious PM me, maybe I can help, same goes for anyone else, no clowns please.

    Sounds like you need to learn more about the marketing side of things, not the technical.

    If you have the intention to learn, then you don`t need any skills in advance.
    Learn step for step and the success comes with the time.

    but at the end is traffic what counts...
