    Who else are jobless here? I lost my job last week, I have only $1k in my bank account. I'm struggling to my finances but I keep on fighting :-(
    Anyway, I'd tried to apply in different job but I have no luck.

    I know affiliate marketing is not an instant money if I'll gonna do the organic way but I have to.


    I hope one day or one of these days, I can inspire someone like me who is jobless right now.

    Anyway, can someone give me a pieces of advice because I need this right now mentally and emotionally. :-(

    I will update this thread soon!

    We'd love to share some point of view but you haven't told us what you're actually thinking about doing, share specific details and I'd love to help you out (if I can).

    Don't stress much about the job though, you'll find one eventually.

    Are you capable of providing a service such as SEO, article writing etc.? If so, once you meet the minimum post requirements (100 I believe), you can upgrade to Jr. VIP status for $97, invest $100-$150 in to a good thread design and offer your service(s) on here. If you provide a good high quality service, you will make sales and build clients. This would put you in to a position to bring in an income for a total investment of under $250.

    I am really sorry to hear that and know how stressful (and scary) it is to suddenly be without a source of stable income. The last time my family was in that situation writing totally saved me. A lot of the content mills I wrote for are gone now, but when in doubt try Fiverr. Whatever service you can think of try to offer it. They do hold the money for 14 days, but one time about two or three years ago my payout from Fiverr came RIGHT when I needed it most. Also, don't stop applying for jobs. There is nothing wrong with having a safety net in the form of a 9 to 5 until you get established.

    I can understand your feelings because I had the same situation before some months ago; I have lost my job and left with a $200 in bank account.

    But after struggling a month and applying different job opportunity; now I got a good one, so don't lose hope try everything.

    And about my online activity, I have some years of experience in IM, I have made some money online but it is not consistent.

    with my online activity I have learned a lot in IM, now I know how to make money online, but what I need is Patience, consistent work towards my goal.
    So I planned my online work and set time for daily online activity; and set goals to achieve like $1/day then $3/day then $5, $8, $12, $18, $25, $35, $50, $100/day

    Till now I managed to achieved my $3/day goal and now working towards $5/day goal.
    I am planning to write my journey, when I achieve at least $18 per day goal.

    Hence in short I suggest you to first get a regular supply of income, which is a offline job as in our case
    and if you are in IM, then set up a goals like $1/day then $3/day and so on; and set up a daily activity to achieve your goals.

    Don't waste time because time is one of the most valuable thing which we have, so apply for jobs and in meanwhile learn something new skills or qualities and plan and work consistently.

    Don't lose hope, and don't lose patience.

    Me again. I'm starting to get sale. Very small amount, hoping for the best results.

    What did I do was more on promoting social media.

    Still jobless.. :-(

    man, thats more then what some people have made and theyve been doing this for years!!! congrats! what ever ur doing is obviesly working. just scale it up a bit no? congrats man! keep ur head in the game, dont get demotivated!

    patience is key in IM, trial and error is key, but u seem like uv got ur first sale! that my friend is ACHIEVEMENT!

    keep ur head up!

    i too used to make money on fiverr, but getting ur first few sales will be hard. but once u do, the rest of the sales will start rolling in. maybe if u can promote ur fiverr gigs as well to get traffic to your posts then it can generate some good income in the mean time.

    explore all your options but what ever u do! dont underestimate what u have just achieved! 0.39$ beleive it or not is more then some people in this forum have made!

    Congrats and keep rolling forward!

    I haven't worked at a regular job in nearly 10 years. My entire source of income has been online. I was an article writer, and I loved it, but I recently got burned out so I switched to something else - still IM just a different niche.

    One of the things you need to do is consistently apply for jobs. You cannot let the fact that you don't have a job continue to depress you. It'll eat you alive. Just apply everywhere you can. My brother does this when he wants a new job. He worked for McDonald's for 10 years. He finally decided to get a real job, so he applied to every full time position he could find. Eventually he landed a job at a hotel make $12 an hour 40 hours a week plus benefits. But he applied EVERYWHERE. He wasn't picky. I saw him apply for being a janitor for a daycare, and a dishwasher for a retirement facility. In the meantime he's going to school at night for HVAC. He wants a job making $30 an hour and that's the niche he chose. He'll graduate with a degree in December. So you can balance it OP. You just need to keep going.

    In the meantime you've proven that you can make Amazon work for you. So keep working on that, but keep looking for a job too. You will find one eventually. Just keep your head up. It does get better, I promise.
