    Okay so I've been doing SEO and just learned the hard way that you can't rely on this to make you money overnight. (been doing this since December so close to 6 months already)

    My budget is depleted. I'm out of cash. I give up. I need something to make me money NOW and just put SEO projects on secondary priority. I need to make money NOW as I wait for my SEO eggs to hatch.

    So, I'm going to be reviewing this forum for ideas but for now, my best idea is to do SEO services for other people. Does anyone have any experience with this? I dont even know where to start to get clients.

    Do you have $20 more?? .. Open a thread here in the services section, that should get you some decent $$$ quickly, if your services are good! .. If not, head over to Fiverr and offer a small service there! But there are loads of marketing forums online, just make sure you stay loyal and offer your services here first ;)

    First of all, congratulations for keeping up with SEO for 6 months. It's not easy to do that.

    And from what I have read, SEO does take time but you'll reap the benefits soon. And I'm sure you have learned a lot so in the meantime (while you wait for your sites to bring you money) you can start offering your SEO services.

    I'd suggest to target any local businesses first. Get them to know you and once you land a few clients, you can get some referrals from them.

    Hey, 6 months of SEO is a lot if time spent. Might as well get paid from all that knowledge you have acquired.

    So good luck and all the best.

    LMAO, I love it when the light comes on and people realize this is actual work and not a get rich quick scheme.

    Congrats OP.

    As for making money, how much do you need to make to sustain yourself?

    You should try Fiverr. Its the easiest method to gain money overnight. I myself doing some graphic service in Fiverr and getting steady gig orders from 50-100 orders per month and increasing. If you can't do graphics, buy scrapebox and do blasting service. There's a thread about scrapebox blasting somewhre in this forum and that guy made a good amount of money from it.

    Soon I'm gonna open a motion graphic service in BHW. If BHW provides me enough clients, I'll drop Fiverr.

    Good luck.

    I think sustain is more how much you need to pay all your bills and live have some spare cash to invest. Not how much you wish to earn.

    So anyway, SEO services, besides going local, would you recommend going to Elance and services like it to sell my services? The thought of competing with 10 million Indians (literally) already makes my head hurt.

    Step 1. Sign up to Clickbank.
    Step 2. Pick a product to promote.
    Step 3. Spam the fuck out of your affiliate link on as many forums, Yahoo Answers, chat rooms, blogs, as you can over and over again. Just spam spam spam. Re-register over and over.
    Step 4. Repeat. Just one sale can net you $34 a day. Times that by 3 and you're making over $100 a day, $700 a week, $2800 a month.

    Why not do CPA? There's nice methods that can earn you 300$+ per day. Again it's work but not the dirty SEO. ;)

    SEO IS KING :tongue1:

    Creating one niche site and waiting for it´s ranking is useless.
    Create "~100" seo niche sites and you will get soon an income which is worth all the work.
    You won´t be happy waiting for a website 6 month to earn you $00,50 - $01,00 a day. But if you create "~100" you will know there are an $1000 extra income waiting for you soon.

    -Good whitehat seo means constant / regular income.
    -Most other methods work until you get "banged", but make often more money in a short time than seo.

    There is only 1 hard thing in seo= quality content

    just my 2 pennys

    It's best to have short term projetcts & long term project...you really only started a long term poject, with nothing to hold you financially steady until the long term project brings in the money.

    Everything needs some time. You can jump into fb game while its still on! :D Spend a day on fb surfing around on big pages, other user's wall, events, etc. and you can find a heck lot of methods.

    I can understand your problem. I was working as an Seo for 1 year with a company and now I started my own. I had 3 clients who were interested. I emailed them my on page seo and they all disappeared. And this happened in the same week :( Now they have blocked me on skype too after I sent them my on page. Wonder they are working with someone else now with my on page suggestion this thing sucks :(

    I have decided to give BHW a try and lets see if I can make atleast 20$ a day. I cannot write articles or that would have been awesome. The only thing I can do is this white hat seo :( Lets see only time will tell.
