    So i will make this very short to be respectful of everyone's time.

    I am currently unemployed and i want to give this a good go, now or never sort of thing.

    I am looking to make 30$ a day. To support myself this is what i need.

    I want to make an emphasis on learning skills that are not one hit wonders. In other words i don't want to focus on techniques that are paper thin such as craigslist/ebay.

    So my question is, of these methods which should i pursue? I am also open to other suggestions as well.

    #1 Offline Marketing, ranking up a local seo site for myself and doing that.

    #2 Some sort of blog (I have subjects i know a great deal about) Monetizing with adsense or offers.

    #3 Perhaps clickbank although it seems to me to be more along the lines of the paperthin issue that scares me.

    #4 try and do freelance writing/graphic design.

    I really do not need more than 30$ a day, and i am willing to work HARD for it as i get myself started. So i thank you all in advance for reading and any advice you might offer. :D


    If this is the wrong section to post this maybe someone can get a mod to move it but i think that this is correct.

    I find that ranking local job sites jobs in city name, to be pretty profitable, you just get a job feed using indeed etc for that particular city, and you internal link other cities and jobs, and then you sell ad space on the rightside to major conglomerates for $400 a month, and have like 5-6 spots for their company logo to be advertised and an external link to their sites. Yeah rinse and repeat for each state or province.

    anyways do your own due dilligence

    Thanks to the people offering advice, to the people simply advising me to get a job, i have crippling social anxiety brought on by extreme abuse growing up. I've worked extremely hard to overcome to the point i am now, and am still in the process of treatment and progressing, so that's not an option for me. I'm trying to do what i can, with what i know. I really do appreciate the advice i am given and i take it all to heart.

    What got you worked up? What's so wrong in above advices? No one is insulting his request in any way... Btw, what advice are you giving him? :)


    Btw, He is asking without telling us what skills (whatever level of expertise) he has.

    #1 Offline Marketing, ranking up a local seo site for myself and doing that.

    #2 Some sort of blog (I have subjects i know a great deal about) Monetizing with adsense or offers.

    #3 Perhaps clickbank although it seems to me to be more along the lines of the paperthin issue that scares me.

    #4 try and do freelance writing/graphic design.

    All the above can't be advices upon until he mentions how much basics he knows. So until he tells us about the object (his skills), we can tell him about what objectives he can pursue...

    And, he can begin with the blog for the time being, :) but everyone telling him to go with the blog won't help him much either, because imo those advertisements may not bring him $30/day for a long time to come... so he should be mentioning what other skills he has... does he know about CPA? about writing articles? about web designing? about graphics capabilities? about selling on ebay/ama etc? about flipping sites, etc? about training students? (it's in huge demand btw), about programming skills? even about pretending to be a se@@ w0xxxx or whatever?


    If he doesn't have any particular thing on mind, then he can always read through the sections on BHW and find what's good for him, and which would be the ideal answer for him... but he wants some readymade answer which may not help him at all!

    throw a bunch of methods at the wall. find out what makes you money and scale it up. with social anxiety i wouldnt fuck with anything offline. not a fan of ad-cents either.
    out of all your options, i suggest you do clickbank promotion. find a high gravity product and promote it on comment forms and facebook. you should easily make $30 a day with the right niche.

    In that case, you need to go stand in front of the mirror and say something like this:
    "Get the hell out of there, you little me! I'm determined to overcome your powers and grow up to become the Big Me that I AM!" Believe in what you say, and actually work it out from NOW.

    Btw, that advice came from one of the best persons who have helped plenty of infinite number of people (means really A LOT) lol, around the world :)! Name is Norman Vincent Peale... I too am one of those whom he changed -- through his books (buy them online/offline if you can, they are really worth it) and his videos (find on YT). I advice you to listen to him and not me. Would really H-E-L-P you in the long run, beginning now! :)

    How about social media?

    You can easily earn $10-$30 using IG or twitter traffic using paid tools from BHW

    If your goal is $30 a day right now
    none of the above methods will work

    If you have good writing skills and are wiling to work your butt off
    go on fiverr, seoclerks, elance, freelancer, odesk,
    Have different price levels for your articles.

    You should reach your $30 a day goal pretty fast.
    Then drop the cheaper places.

    In the meantime, while waiting on work, you can learn some other methods.

    If you want PM me your skype and maybe i can suggest some other things for you to try.

    Clickbank is my choice as well for $30 a day. You can make that with 1 sale a day for some products which isn't too difficult to reach. Wish you the best of luck :)

    Edit: Low gravity products if you have no income for SEO. Do your keyword research using keyword planner by Google(free) and then target some long tail keywords that have low search volume but also very low competition in your articles. If you can create youtube videos that also works very well if you don't want to do SEO. I don't have much experience with youtube so I can't comment on that however.

    If you can do freelance writing/graphic design I'd suggest going with Fiverr for now. You can easily get 7-8 orders a day in order to meet your goal... if your work is good enough.

    +1 on not going offline. I would rather not deal with selling to people face to face too.

    My 2 cents:

    #4 Freelance writting to start getting cash
    . I guess if you put this option it means you already have some skills in that field, so it would be almost immediate revenues, if you advertise yourself on the good websites.

    Once you start reaching some good bankroll, switch to :

    #2 Start a blog since you have now some money to invest (beside what you took for your personal living) and you can start 1/multiple blog(s).
    - Pick a niche (your social problem might be a good idea, since you know what you're talking about) and write about it. Create unique content. at least 1 article / day and publish it.
    - At the same time learn basic SEO and try to start ranking your website for certain keyword.

    - Create a second blog as soon as you mastered basic SEO, you may have some free time now that you're getting used to it.
    - Rank it with you basic SEO skills.
    - Rinse and repeat.

    Getting good traffic ? now switch to :

    #3 Clickbank/ Your own product.
    - Learn about it; learn how to promote product in your niche, how to sell services.
    - Find a product that fits one of your niche and write some review article on your site. See if it bring some sale.
    - If no product available, create your own (will take time) and sell it on your site(s).

    Now you should master :
    - Writing
    - Basic SEO
    - Selling services, your own services

    And you should have more confidence in what you've achieved, since you're banking. Time to switch :

    #1 Offline SEO & marketing.
    - Find local companies. Don't undersell your services (otherwise, better stay home and bank online)

    And voila. Good luck
