    Actually you didn't lose anything, you had a freelancing job that lasted few days.
    You need to get more hands on and try and find people to work with or something similar. Don't stop with only one person have a business relationship with more people to assure you will have a constant income.

    A few days on this forum you can find a pattern of what sells, what doesn't. Also spend your time studying freelance sites on what sells, what doesn't. If you can make a better solution to the problem of a evergreen niche (i.e. content writing of graphic design) you can see income in no time. It does not matter on saturation, it matters on how well you can touch base with a customer and make them buy (the art of psychology and sales copy). Ignore idiots claiming you need to do more for less, you simply need better sales copy than your competitor to get the sales. Also as a freelancer, I'd try to focus on building up a set number of repeat clientele so you are able to achieve a solid income monthly (you'll need to figure this out on your own).

    Your advice is good. And I appreciate your advice too. But need some skills and quality to work online right? So, the person has to be skillful and qualified.

    Exactly. If you don't learn those skills your genes will be weeded out of a profitable & fruitful existence.

    Capitalism + internet = IM. That's it.

    IM is nothing more than capitalism. Producers vs consumers. Money exchanged from person A to person B. All you have to do is make yourself person B.

    Think about this. The worlds oldest coin is 2,700 years old. Before coins people paid with sugar, salt, liquor, crude metals, etc. Which means capitalism is technically older than the bible. When you strip down all the technology, all the noise, all the bs, it's one of the simplest systems in the world.

    I see so many people today bitching about $$$. The more you have of it, the more we all have of it, the more we're all likely to bitch. Man has managed to produce all this fake material garbage. And all that garbage has become the walls that contain our "civil" societies. It's all 1 giant ponzi scheme masquerading as "evolution". We *really believe* we're an evolved species. Until economies start to collapse, we hoot and hollar like apes again... and everyone collectively realizes how dumb we all really are.

    Anyway, my point is, this is all 1 giant game. You have to make a conscious, deliberate and psychopathic devotion to play the game. I can't stress the word "psychopath".

    Look at great chess players, many are psychopaths. Bobby Fischer was a psychopath. Look at great athletes, Mike Tyson, psychopath. Look at great CEOs. As studies have shown, it's the #1 most psychopathic profession in the world. Large corporations will test new CEOs with rewritten versions of the "LSRP". Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale. The higher your score, the more of a sociopath / psychopath, the better your chances of getting hired.

    So my best advice, as I've said before, approach IM like a psychopath. Not a Ted Bundy type psychopath. A "tamed" psychopath. Learn everything you need. Learn how to sell. Read books on copywriting. That's the first thing any pyscho.... I mean capitalist needs to learn. Then learn keyword research. It's the most boring fucking thing in the world, most marketers suck at it and won't say so. But it's extremely valuable to learn. Grab long tail pro, Google keyword planner, start exporting thousands of thousands of keywords / lists into excel. It's really handy to have a good printer cause I have stacks full of keyword data. Go through them, research, highlight... LEARN.

    Take a look around you. There are guys doing and succeeding at everything you can imagine. Youtube videos + CB. Blog comments + CB. Facebook groups + CPA. SEO + anything. Targeting tons of long tails and ranking parasites. Probably one of the easiest ways to get your feet wet. Guys building local authority sites. Creating products and flipping them. People cyber squatting as YT celebs, then spamming CPA on their channels as idiots upvote that shit.

    LOOK at all the forum marketing right on this forum. Watch what guys are doing.

    Do you ever download torrents? Everytime I go to kickass torrents I LOOK at the ads. I read them. I bookmark them. LOOK how legit that site appears. Then try clicking ANY button anywhere. It's all BINGO BINGO BINGO. Read the FB comments. You could very EASILY create a page just like that, get 2-3 sites, a few proxies, create some FB accounts, start joining groups and send them to targeted pages that look just like that. BTBs method in a nutshell.

    People love complicating things. I do it myself. But when you really LOOK at what's going on around you, it's all much simpler than it appears. You could train an ape to most this shit.

    All you have to do is throw out that scarcity mindset and WORK. Everything I've learned, it all happened when I sat down and consistently worked on a method I KNEW other guys were making money with. Fuck, the ***1st*** website I built (for myself, rather than selling), 3 1/2 years ago, when I had NO IDEA what I was doing, today it's the most profitable asset I own. I slaved away those first 3 months working like a psychopath. In my brain I really thought I'd fail but in my heart I KNEW I'd never give up. I was passionate. I NEEDED to make something big happen. A year later me and my brother licensed it as an official business. Then I built more sites. Then I got into Clickbank + YT.

    I'm far from a genius. I know shit about technology. The only real skill I have is persuasion. Something anyone can learn.

    I knew if I could rank for some shitty 1000-3000 SM keyword, get targeted traffic, I could convert at least 5-10% of that traffic. Even if 50+% of that traffic hated me, knew I was pitching them, hated my pitch, hated my voice, hated my writing, I knew I could convince a small % to buy my shit. I have horrible YT videos I did years ago that now have like 300,000 views, 4,000 likes and 8,000 dislikes. When I go back to them today I think in my head, "WHO THE HELL KEEPS BUYING THIS SHIT?!! WHO COULD BE THAT STUPID?" I still don't really get it. There are so many comments in the comments section I no longer delete. Full of people saying, "this is a scam", "it's his product", "don't fall for it!"...... but some of those same videos convert around 15%. My lowest converting one is 4%. There are services advertising right here on BHW. I click the ads, read through months worth of posts and can immediately tell they're selling garbage. I know many other dudes can tell too. But the bullshit is branded, crafted and positioned a certain way. To shut down the logic of a small group of people (mostly noobs). So they don't read. They don't evaluate. Don't take their time. They just see Santa, rudoph and immediately click buy.

    That's IM in a nutshell. Grab a can of chrome spray paint, shake it up and start spraying those turds.

    Most of us think about it many times, still those $0 days scare the whole damn pay. However, preparing for the worst is still hoping for the best, the lesson on why getting money is not everything.
