I wonder...is it for real???
I just read everybody's posts, most of you people seem honest but... Is it for real?
I mean... can anybody tell me if one can really make some money online? During the past 6 or so months I've been home trying to make it happen and it seems overwhelmingly difficult sometimes. During this time I've bought many eBooks, I have built three websites, I've written my own eBook, I've tried selling both tangible and intangible but nothing seems to have worked. Frustration is knocking hard in my head!
Talk about marketing!! I've tried pay-per-click, banners, banner exchange, etc.
Last week only, I spent $400 in pay-per-click from google and the few sales I made, buyers requested a refund! I know the eBook is well written as it is the result of countless hours of study of the online world. I've compared it to the other many eBooks I've bought and I know it's better. Are people out there just to take you? It's rough...
and talk about my tangible product sites...my online jewelry sales are aweful although I have a great selection and a great price as I am in Colombia and emeralds, gold and labor here is so cheap. Traffic to this site is only brought by my weak efforts on google adwords and it is expensive!
Can anybody jump in and give good advice to this hopeless parent????
