    Hello everyone.

    I've already been searching for methods but I want a mentor to help me through the methods.

    I don't know if that's possible, but if it is I would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hello patrickthomas. I know BHW is the best resource. I looked through the methods and:

    - PPD/CPA don't work for me
    - Article Writing don't work for me
    - Everything else that involves money, don't work for me

    Hello lilmasta. I thought it was, I'm sorry. I know nobody is going to spoonfeed, but at least help choosing the right direction.

    so chose the niche in which your better than others and can do much better than guys engaged in that niche.
    so industry your passionate about would do miracles for you and trying a different thing from the scratch is always difficult.

    It's easy to talk patrick. I've already created accounts on all freelance websites and it isn't easy to get customers.

    If it was easy everyone would be doing it.

    Let's start with "get big projects and earn lots of cash". That does not work generally... how about get one client, make them happy and make some money from the project for starters. You want to start there in your mind before you think about the lots of cash.

    If I were selling web development on a free lancer site I would have a handful of sites done that a potential client could see. Four or five will do and you want them to each look very different than the other so that there is a variety.

    I would also respond to EVERY request for a web developer on those sites and would not use a canned response but one that was tailored specifically to the request. Guy wants a dog training site, I would respond that you can build a beautiful dog training site that is attractive, mobile friendly and responsive, will make his dog training service look like the best and will be a large factor in converting visitors to buyers.

    I think for the first few clients, until you build up a reputation on those sites, that you need to give bonuses or some sort of incentive to buy from you as well. I'm not a fan of the lower your price to get business model but add ons or bonuses are a great way to entice a client.

    It really is a numbers game when you are prospecting so you need to respond to EVERY request and look under every rock while you are getting the ball rolling but, if you are decent, you'll make money. Tens of thousands of web designers do.

    But it is not going to be easy, if it were easy it would not return a $ value back to you usually.

    You're completely right. Get 1 customer, work for him and make him happy is the best for a start.

    What type of websites do you recommend I should do to add to my portfolio.

    Thank you so much!

    What are people looking for on those sites?

    Do that research and you'll have a better idea as to what to put together so you have a portfolio that is built for the market in which you are prospecting.

    Fast way to fail in business, build something that you think will work.

    Better way to have a chance to succeed, see what the market is looking for and provide that.

    Do the latter.

    Try to make a website for yourself on what services you offer. Go to 99designs , freelancer, odesk, elance, peopleperhour. All possible sites. Make your cover letter professional. Try to make a portfolio. Complete proper exams in freelancer sites.

    Everything is about communication. How you communicate with clients. Make them trust they are working with a badass freelancer. Nothing comes so easy . Things coming easier wont last for long time. Dedication and hardwork will make you learn much things. Never be rude to your clients even if the client is. Never quit on any projects. TRY TRY TRY until you know you cant do it.

    Get more projects and start to outsource in the same freelancer websites.

    Never work on fake projects like transferring money in freelance sites like selling bitcoins, skrill transfer.

    Try to get dribbble invite to showcase your portfolio . Enhance your skills everyday learning new scripts and everyday look on github

    IF it would have been easy, even a kid would have started freelancing.
    getting customers is not easy indeed. But quality gains everything. start with offering your service at low cost. once some of the guys recognize your quality, you will get better reviews and that helps grabbing some BIG PROJECTS.
    GETTING BIG PROJECTS are not the work of a day or two. work hard and harder. you will succeed for sure.

    My recommendation to you is a very very simple one. Offer to create website and mobile sites for free, find businesses that need mobile websites and target new businesses listed in your local commerce. Find creative ways to reach out to them and tell them that you're willing to do it for free. Setup a hosting account that you can use as a reseller. Collect each month.

    Down the road once you have enough of a foundation and revenue, think about the bigger fish.... Create amazing websites and target businesses that have higher budgets. It's not going to be right away, but that's a sure fire way to speed things up... Also attend local events in your area and make sure that network with people. You can usually pick up some leads at events just by being friendly.

    Make sure you have a nice photo, on these sites. Look the part.
    Look at the top sellers, see how they write their cv

    Keep it short and too the point

    It will take a bit of time, to build a reputation, but with these 3 things right
    your chances of making good money increase substantially.

    1st impressions count, so take your time and get it right

    I hate to sound negative or discouraging but I don't think you will ever make money online because you seem to have the wrong mindset, seems like you don't have confidence in yourself and you think just because you've tried a few methods that didn't work you can't make nothing work! Theres a reason why bhw is so popular and respected, it's because they provide members with good quality content that actually works! So please take advantage of this site because while a lot of the methods may feel morally wrong, im a witness that it can put more money in your bank account than you ever imagined. The choice is yours!

    Thanks for all your great words and tips.

    I thought BHW allowed mentoring and that would be very good for newbies like me.
    The people that start new journeys could go with some newbies with them to kick them in to the right path!

    Thanks!

    Read a lot on this forum, other IM / SEO forums and blogs, do plenty of your own testing and research, and with time you will build a better understanding of everything. It seems you don't have much understanding of SEO or anything internet marketing just by the vague post you made, which means a lot of people will target you and try and sell their services to you. Don't go sinking your money into anyones mentoring services before first reading around a bit!
