    I can't build websites for crap, and I can't stay focused long enough to complete one anyway.

    On the other hand, I do love SEO and I'm fairly capable at it as well.

    What can I do to make money without having to build websites and write content? I need to start somewhere, but I don't have the money to outsource all of this stuff.

    I'm curious, what do you guys do in this situation?

    Share your thoughts, I'll appreciate it.

    Offer services. Use fiverr or sell direct to potential clients.
    If you are looking to offer services to real businesses,
    It's important that you have proof that you can do what you say.

    This is why I recommend building a site and ranking it in the top 5.
    Doesn't have to be any super competitive niche, just need some sort of proof.

    There are tons of people here that do SEO. Offer a few review services and then open up a BST thread.

    Honestly, stop being lazy... So many IM are convinced that making bank is this wonderful dream of sitting on ur @ss and doing nothing and suddenly the money comes. Doesn't work like that.

    I recommend you work on your site a little bit each day. Give it time and you will see results. If you can't focus you will never be successful.

    I've been buidling websites for 8 years and doing SEO for 6. I'm telling you now, effective SEO requires a lot more patience than web development does.

    I agree 1000% with Abstroose. Effective SEO is boring, soul-sucking drudgery, especially if you don't have a team. Building the sites is the easy/fun part. It sounds like you might have the wrong approach.
