    Back in 2008-2010 I was heavy into affiliate marketing, seo, link building, and flipping websites. I found a job in 2010 and stopped and sold all my online ventures at the time for what looked like a promising career. Well the company that I got hired onto and worked my way up to management just filed closed it's doors today and I am out of a job with no notice. I want to get back into making money online again but after being out of the loop for 4 years I am sure much has changed, right?

    What methods are popular in 2014?

    Most of my expeience was in design and marketing, I built and flipped over 250+ websites on Flippa during the huge turnkey boom a few years back before the market was saturated, I also have experience with manual link building but I don't really think thats a thing anymore. What are you guys doing in 2014?

    My only thought is to start a marketing company, push social media marketing and web design packages? I did this in the past and it was always a struggle to find clients.

    What about 2012 and 2011. :D

    I was in the marketing game before panda/penguin hit, things have really changed from what I have seen so far. I used to get paid $1 per manal link now people are doing it for pennies on the dollar.

    And people say working for a company is more secure than working for yourself. Pffft! I know what my ass is doing tomorrow
    morning but I have no idea about anyone else.

    Good points. Why in the world people would start working for others instead of doing thing by themselves. Especially since everything worked fine for you.

    Quiting my 50k/year job for IM was the best decision I could every make. For more than 1 year I was making less than my regular job, but I was FREE. Had time to read, watch movies and work properly on my IM stuff.

    I got offered a job to run a warehouse, business went under since the owner decided to not pay taxes in 5 years and got caught.

    There's no secret system for 2014.

    What works is what always worked.

    Pick a niche that has a problem they need solved or a real passion they love to indulge in.
    Offer the people in that niche a solution.

    How you do that is up to you just pick a proven method that you know works - blogging, list building, affiliate marketing, ecommerce, selling services, a combination of some of them etc.
