i haven't been on this forum in a LOOONG time. I doing something illegal to make money and wasn't really worried about it... but then i got arrested. lost basically everything and now i'm literally f**ked for money. told myself that i need to get my ass in gear and started figuring out what skills i have and what i could do for money since basically nobody will hire me now that i'm a felon. i decided to start making websites and doing seo for local businesses and decided to use the method from the "$500 a day giving free websites" with a few twists of my own. I am willing to do cold calls and i know that will be successful but i wanted to try my other idea first to see if i would get any responses. I posted six ads on craigslist today at a horrible time (3pm) and got two phone calls tonight. both asked me if i do full websites and want to discuss SEO so i actually am not ending up giving away websites. one guy is dead serious about buying and the other is kinda iffy and thinks i'm a pushover and will do it for "commission" well he's got another thing coming. i scheduled to meet them in person for tomorrow and friday. I'll update this thread with any other appointments I make and how much i end up charging and what i end up doing for each of these business owners. i haven't seen anyone actually log their cold calling so i might update you guys with how that goes too. I'm going to see how these meetings go though to see how i do before i start scheduling off the hinges. by the way i'm only 19 years old so no one should use the excuse of age in the offline industry.
