    Hi BHW! I'm a newbie in IM. I have basic knowledge about affiliates, cpa and others. Never had much time to learn more because of my job. Now things went really bad. I lost my job and I'm completely broke. Now, when I have free time (sadly), I would like to do something in IM, but I have no idea where to start. Yes, I could start with creating some niche website.. It requires money for host, domain and other expenses, but I barely have enough savings for rent and food.

    I really could use your advices to get out of this deep hole :( What should I do?

    I would say that´s a good advice, since you need money right now. In another case I would say find a niche create a site, and make 3-5 articles per day on that site to make it an authority site on the long run. But in reality you need money and that will take time.

    Think: "What do you do better?" and make that as a freelance service so you at least can earn something, later make a website and authority or micro niche sites but in your case you need stable income and fast.

    There are many reseller hosts on this forum who would probably provide you with free hosting considering your situation, just ask around.

    I recently got rid of my reseller hosting or I would have given you it.

    stay positive bro. there are many things you could do, be a virtual assistant, article writer, article spinner........etc. there is definitely strong demand for these at the moment. keep learning and do not take accept everything in ebooks as it is, you have to think and evaluate for yourself.

    Start with fiverr and other freelancing sites to get work.
    Also check craigslist for jobs in your area.
    First go get a job for arranginf food on the table. and do hardwork late at every night.

    If you can write, then offer your writing services. People always want fresh, original content and if you can provide that service, then you'll make a bit of fast cash - well as fast as you can write that is!

    Otherwise it's try to find another J.O.B! It's what I had to do and now I juggle a menial boring job with my IM and I ain't doing too bad.

    Wish you all the luck in the world, I really do!

    Thanks everyone for reply. Articles ain't my thing because I'm Latvian and still struggle with English. I was thinking about what DarkPixel said, but how I can get approved in any CPA network without having decent website?
    I can make small scripts in php (I'm still learning It) and I'm quite good at Photoshop.
    I think I'll have to brainstorm some ideas.
    Still, I'm open to any suggestions and I'll update this thread with my progress.

    P.s. zenoman, I can't pm you, as I don't have 15 posts yet. :/

    Just think. Money doesn't buy happiness. But neither does poverty. That's what keeps me trying. Keep failing but I keep trying.

    Hang in there man.

    The surest way to make money fast is to do day labor. Probably stuff you would hate. Once long ago I went around to construction sites in new housing developments and asked for work for the day. I made $10/hr cash but it was awful work.

    If you've got more time then you have some better options. You have a valuable skill. You are good with English. You can write articles as other people mentioned above. There are many SEO virtual assistants but writer virtual assistants are very hard to find.

    Most people will not make hardly any money on the Internet but they will spend a lot trying. By offering a service you are guaranteed to make money even if your customer doesn't.

    One under supplied niche in the writing field is custom spun articles. Spinning is rewriting the article and using software to mix the different parts of it. I pay a guy $12 per article to do 6 sentence rewrites. He is so busy he can only do 1 article every week or two for me.

    He has a list of 30 articles to write for me. If he would do it the way I really wanted them done I would pay $20 each.

    This type of work would be tough but I think there is enough demand for you to develop a loyal clientel if you provide quality and dependable work. You could make a good living if the cost of living is low in your country.

    I'd be happy to be your first customer. ;)

    Whatever you do, remember the most important thing about making money online is to

    Take Action

    Hi,
    At one point or another we all are, may be just at different level. First cheer up, and you will find yourself in better position, definitely not worse :) !
    I read your all posts and you mentioned that you are good with photohop?
    May be you can attach it here, and people can use your services.
    I do need somebody good with PS, but I'm not sure how much that will help you monetarily.
    Thanks and will wait for your reply.
    Sarvo

    Post services for something that people don't want to do (article writing), put up your service in a few forums and voila.

    Fiverr is also a great suggestion like many have said.

    Once you have some income from doing services for others you can scale up and start working towards a passive income.

    No Hat,

    Would you mind if I PM you about this opportunity? Back when I was super-new at IM, I bought TBS and learned to use it quite well in combination with hand spinning. I'm very good at producing spintax that is human readable, grammatically/syntactically correct, and 60-85% unique. You can drop my spintax into ArticleRanks and get 99% approved submissions -- which is really saying something!

    I might be the kind of person you want to hire.. and $20/article seems fair because I know how much work is involved. Perfect timing too since I need cash and I was thinking of starting a service business.

    Anywho, back to my original question, can we chat about this? Maybe we could work something out where you help me build a clientele for a lifelong discount.

    Don't start in this field when you're down and out. Will be a lot harder than just getting a crappy local job, and moonlighting to learn IM. We've all done it, but you should do this work because you love it; not out of necessity. Just my two cents.

    On the other hand if you can find a job doing this sort of work (for super cheap) then that would be the best solution.

    Best of luck.
