    Ive been in seo exclusively for almost two years or more.

    now it is looking bleak and hopeless im wondering how to escape this pit of despair.

    my mom is nagging me to get a 'normal job' as it will be no more headaches. to me that is almost the same as dying ie not an option!!!!!!

    she said she will help fund new avenues like youtube or facebook provided i give her a semi detailed business plan with a clear idea of what it is going to be spent on and what the outcomes are expected to be.

    So you guys who do facebook marketing and or youtube/other social media, if i had a few hundred dollars to spend on outsourcing what would you recommend.

    the idea is just to put some money into stuff which would quicken the setup time so it will let me see if its going to be feasible to carry on these avenues or not.

    i have a little experience with youtube. the main tedious/time consuming tasks of that were the editing and uploading videos, so maybe hire some slave labourer to do that part for me? i could easily find keywords for it with my bot, then its just a case of having the vids uploaded and send those babies off to vagex right?

    other suggestions?

    what about facebook/twitter etc? are they likely candidtes for an income stream and if so what services would you reocmend for those to start up bearing in mind i know nothing about either of those really as never used them personally.

    Personally I would recommend starting with Facebook.

    Several reasons:

    1. You can keep building upon your Facebook page and adding more content then spam it every so often.
    2. You can chat live with people and advertise to them almost like cold calling.

    Youtube is competitive and limited in what you can do compared to Facebook.

    Just my opinion!

    if it were me,i would try ecommerce in your local area.creating videos regarding that niche and promoting it around town.
    or provide reselling services.use that as a starting platform and head on from there :)

    You'll likely end up losing your first few investments. So be prepared for that, first and foremost. You probably won't end up seeing any kind of viable return until you've learned how to work the system.

    My advice is get a job and fund yourself. If your mum is nagging you now, think how much nagging she will do if she puts money in and you fail. You could always start by using methods which cost nothing.

    I don't get this comment. Are you saying you have failed ?

    Do it yourself and save your Mum's money.

    I agree with mickyfu , get a job and invest your own money.

    Most would appreciate your help, but this kid obviously doesn't want to work. If you were to see his other thread, you would see exactly where I'm coming from.

    So is the problem you've been freelancing from home for 2 years and now the work is drying up? Did you save some cash in the last 2 years? I'm confused about what it is you do... but if you are looking for quick cash, there are plenty of free methods I'm sure you've seen countless times on here.

    Borrowing money from family is a guaranteed pain in the a**

    The advice I will give you, maybe is not what you want to hear. But this a mistake many are making. SEO has evolve into many other things. Yes, 2005, 2006, even 2010, still today 2013 you can sell a contract for SEO. But the basic SEO is all ready integrated into many CMS, deisngs, etc. Making the value as cheap as it can be. What you want to focus on is Internet Marketing. But you have to think this as a business, not just a penny collector. This is where many fails, they don't think as a business, they don't develop the business, they do not invest in the business, they do not take the steps to be a real business. Many lack commitment and seriousness. Now Internet Marketing can be on different levels. You can be either a service provider or you can be a publishing company. This are 2 different things. A service provider as the words says provide link services, likes, the leg work. Now many opted for this options as is the cheapest to run and requires less maintenance. You can also be a service provide and offer the all around solution. Now that will required to work with local businesses and build a client base. Now been a publishing company can be more tedious, and requires more effort and takes longer to generate good amount of money. This option could be either a penny maker or a money maker. You are the only one who decided what to do. Building real quality sites, with quality content is a mountain to conquer that's why many chase after the long tail keywords and build disposable sites. Those are the ones that you see crying in the forums when Google does and update and destroys this sites, sinking their gains. Haven't you notice how polluted the search results are with stuff from 2008 - 2010, maybe some 2012.

    My suggestion, get a job re-organized yourself. By some books on business management, business development, read more about marketing as whole unit. Take 2-3 months and rebuild. Then come back and make some real money. But you have to work hard and make a real effort. The #1 mistake people do is think that because is easy money they can have free time to do other things instead of working hard. They don't build value, that's why they are poor asking others for shortcuts to make money.

    It took me 3 years to make my first $1k, I would say struggling for 2 years is natural in IM :)

    You will have to figure out on your own what you should do now. I taught many people a lot of methods to make money online and they kept coming back to me again and again saying they are broke and need help to make money. Now what could I do even after spoon feeding them? Taking action is upto them.

    Research BHW. Pick a method that seems good to you and stick with it. Move your ass, you will get more than enough time to take rest in your grave.

    Good luck bud.

    My advice is grow the fuck up and support yourself. If you are going down, do not bring those down around you.

    Mixing business and family rarely work out for the best. If you're going to do it, do it for free.
