Hello, I just found and signed up to this forum the other day and I have been reading quite a lot of articles here... I'm quite jealous of those who seem to be making crazy money. I'm a struggling Developer/Designer from Edinburgh in Scotland and have recently lost my job so I have been putting a lot of my time in to a gaming community I run (small time but keeps me busy). I really need to start making money before I lose my house etc and thought that there must be a way to get me through the coming months until I can get myself back on track. My search on how to make some money brought me here so here's my first post! Anyway, I'm not naive and know it will take time and effort to make something and since I have the time and a dedicated server, I thought I should try and do something about it. I just signed up to The Link Juicer to see if this will help bring some needed traffic to my gaming community, It's recently been redesigned by me and I have started to put some game previews and reviews on there and more will come. I have tried several ad companies but none seem to bring in any clicks from my members, mainly because the ads are not targeted to my members. I was using google ads but some idiot clicked them that many times that Google banned my account and has never answered my emails to have this ban lifted... this happened nearly 2 years ago but they won't give me the courtesy of a reply. So I have tried 1 or 2 other ads companies and it's just not happening for me. Anyway, my work is of a decent standard and I know how to design and code a website in no time but it's obviously takes more than that. So now you have read my sob story I need some expert help and advice on what I can actually do to make about $50-$100/£30-£60 a day so I don't end up with no roof above my head. Jobs are non existent with the recession and people are not paying for web design let a lone giving a small time, independent designer a look. Any realistic advice, pointers or ideas would be really helpful. Many thanks!
