Hello. Here's my story. Inspired by some threads there I decided to make websites for profit, being good at php, html and all that stuff. It was December or end of November and I started playing with Wordpress, I found a theme I liked and used it as a base for my own theme that I would later use to build websites for clients. My goal was to target small businesses with bad looking websites and offer them a new website via email. I chose email, because I'm not from US, my country is poor and I could charge more. I also don't think I'm confident enough to sell offline and I'm 19 yo, so of course I don't and I don't seem to have much experience in webdesign. I made a website for myself to portray me as a webdesign agency and I acted as one in my emails.I prepared 19 websites for 19 clients. More like clone sites, they are all alike, but have different, personalized content. I sent the emails. 7 got opened, but only 1 clicked to see the website. Of course 0 responded. I knew it would be hard with email. I was pretty sure I would fail on my first batch of clients, but I hoped that at least someone would respond and ask for more details. And here I am, only 1 person cared to check the website I offered. I don't understand myself sometimes, I knew from the start that email converts crap, but anyway I kept doing it and I kinda wasted 3 months of my free time. The only benefit is I gained experience in Wordpress (I had 0 experience before), learned some more CSS and I still have a base for building business websites. It wasn't the first time I did something like that (I mean spending time on something and then realizing I just wasted time). I set up a website and tried to resell backlinks from fiverr. But then I realized it was a shit service, I'd get refunds and I didn't even know how to promote it so I just took it down and moved onto other things. Btw. I tried to make some money with codecanyon, I submitted a php script and a wordpress plugin but both got rejected and then I started reading about webdesign. So yea, it's been failures all the time for me. Now I don't know maybe I shouldn't give up that easily (now that I've come this far) and try with another niche clients and see how it goes. That's one point of why I'm writing this, I'd like you to review my sales letter. I'm not native english speaker, maybe the email contents made me look unprofessional and that's why only 1 person clicked the link. Here it is: I targeted Yahoo Webhosting sites btw. Or maybe I should face my fears, act confident and try my luck offline. Lots of businesses without a website where I live. Would have to work on the theme though, so I could create unique websites quicker. I don't have it in me to cold walk door to door, at least not yet. I'd probably start with letters and follow up by phone call, and then meet if it would be needed to close the deal. The problem is I don't have a laptop and I think it would be needed to show the design etc. I'd like to to focus on internet marketing overall, but I need money now. That was my goal when I first visited this site in August, to start earning money before I finish school, and it's just 2 months left and then there are final exams and I have to learn more. I'd like to have some passive income from IM, but it takes time to set it up and I don't have time now. This webdesign business seems to be the closest thing to earn me any money soon. Wow that was a long post, but I felt the need to share my experiences.
