    It still holds true. :) People have been contacting me to build their sites simply because I helped their friends. The solutions lifestyle has been working well for me. Thanks, for the props.

    The success lies in helping others. If you look arround on the internet, then most of the people who make a good amount of money online, help other people with great advice or a very helpful service.
    Thats the way it should be

    keep up your helping work!

    Whenever I start a websites or a new project because I am motivated purely by money, it completely flops. It is when I am motivated by something else (passion, desire to help, love of the topic, etc) that I am able to finally turn a profit. So I completely understand exactly what you're saying! Pieces fall into place when you relax into the process and follow your instincts.

    If nothing else at least you would have references. You don't want to always spread yourself thin and give everything away for free but as with any business word of mouth/referrals can make or break you. So offering a bit of freebies to get those references will hopefully help you to find actual paying work. Good luck!

    Word of mouth has been huge, networking! My eCommerce site brought in sales from those that I helped build websites for minimal fees and high value.

    As word spread on my eCommerce site, my affiliates and customers left reviews, which helped my Social Proof on the site grow and lead to more sales. There's another friend that likes my site and needs my help in building hers, so that's another.

    This is not to brag but to prove our points! Helping others and providing huge value long before a sale is made can lead to more, and often even higher priced sales down the road.

    Recently I started on Donations! I'm sure this will pan out also. So, I'm donating 10% of my overall earnings toward a cause that's within my eCommerce Fishing Niche. I am setting up a partnership page, so others know a % of their purchase goes toward a great cause and so on.

    Thanks, for taking the time.

    Enjoy, the weekend.

    Can you provide a link(s) to your site(s) and social media pages? I couldn't find any in this thread (maybe I missed). I'd like to see practical applications of what you're espousing to.

    The best thing about this one is you should never give up no matter what. If you fail, that's a good thing. You know why? Because you tried and take action. The more you fail, the more you learn, the closer you are to succeed.

    Cheers!

    Hi
    Is good to start as a passion otherwise you will get fed-up and stressful when you don't get to see money coming in. When you treat it as a passion/hobby then one will get engrossed to find out more, at the same time, you get to learn. However, as you get to know and understand better, commitment has to set in otherwise a hobby will only generate "hobby" kind of income which may not be sustainable.

    Talking about Google AdSense, yes it may sound too good to be true but these days, it is hard to get approval. Google has very strict criteria now besides pay-out is low unless your click is really massive. We got to persevere and focus on may be 2 traffic methods, pick a free and a paid one for a start. Free traffic to suggest will be article syndication whereby you write a good one and put up in top directories to attract readers to generate traffic to your site. If you have a squeeze page, you may buy solo ads base on your niche and this is the fastest way to get leads and set up email list in long term. Well, these are ways that you may try before moving to other strategies.

    Take Care

    Recently I read one blog post about act of kindness in business. It seems exactly what you did. Not only you feel good, and you make others feel good - that can be really beneficial to your business in unexpected ways, however, act of kindness still should remain act of kindness coming from honesty and wanting to help someone and not trying to get something out of it.

    We all are eager to earn more money FAST, but first you have to give true value. Business is not about you - is about other people and solving their problems.
