    Dear all ,

    I've started making money of odd jobs through BHW's [Hire a Freelancer] Category. I just look for people looking for jobs and im or either skype them , and normally get the job done and get payed. Jobs can be any amount but a job worth money is a job I do , sometimes even $4 transcribing jobs. I'm working from the bottom. I'm really hoping I can do IM in the future and expand myself. I will soon enroll for the J.VIP status so I can post my work in the other categories to increase views and sales

    What I can do : Graphic Design / Social Media / Transcribing / Account Creation / Other work you Desire

    I know you can earn quite alot for what I do , I don't want to promote my work on Fiverr and Seoclerks because its dominated by spam.
    I want to expand and get my work more entries and more work. Is there anything I can do to promote my work other than freelancer website's something like the BHW category , I can easily contact people and get a job done.

    But overall this is working out great and I'm motivated to expand and do jobs in IM and just Trial and Error

    its a big success and I'm happy :)

    Thanks!

    Making $30 a week is nothing. You could do that in a day by whoring GPT Websites & Microworkers. Rofl, you make me laugh, OP.

    OP literally take 3 hours out of your day and build a website, whether on free hosting or not just have something. Then have that as a signature in your specific niche industry forums. And chat it up at other places.

    Hey My friend you have now joined the 5% of Internet marketers that earn more than $5 a week.
    The other %95 of Internet marketers earn a big fat ZERO!!!

    Your doing great

    If you're good at designing logos, I would really suggest you make use of those freelancer sites (oDesk, Elance) because there's some healthy demand for it there.

    Alternatively, find sites which specialize in making/selling logos and try to enroll with them on a freelance basis. That should get you far more than transcription ever will.

    Well i started by offering my services at fiverr and it went very well so better use these kind of sites
    And when you get enough budget try to get your sales thread up on all major IM forums
    Since you got expertise that are still in demand by Imer's if you provide quality
    Also you can use YT to pull some traffic to your sales pages

    That's exactly how I started on this forum, doing grunt work for people and learning IM as I did it.
    You see far too many people join this forum wanting to be spoonfed the big
    money methods when they can't even throw up a wordpress site.
    Doing the gruntwork, learning the trade and networking will get you far.
    Nothing wrong with having a little humility and learning the trade from the bottom up
    rather than trying to be Big Charlie Potatoes one day and posting for the next nine months
    none of your methods are working.

    Keep making those small figures and save it for future investment so when you learn more you have the
    opportunity to invest and expand into larger ventures.

    The only thing is your working for what seems like peanuts .. If you have those type of skills then developing your own sites .. Or moving into local seo type services will make you a lot more money.

    Took me 3 years of tears, lonely nights to make my first $1000. And just another 7 months to reach...you know :D

    Keep at it. It is simple, but not easy. Don't ask stupid questions and browse the forum, specially use the search function for your desired keyword. I can remember clearly how many senior members ignored my noob questions when I was first starting out. That's why I stopped asking questions unlike many other newbie members for which in the first 2 years of my stay on BHW I only had around 100 posts and an infraction (Got another infraction recently for "Hijacking BST"). That's why I help out anyone I can. You can pm/skype me anytime. Will reply once I am free.

    Good luck mate.

    You have so many good skills then why don't you create your own site where you can sell your services. You can create a free site with free domain and hosting. Try hard and Good Luck!!!!
