What Are You Good At?

Sit down and create a list of things that you are skilled at, then create another list of companies (online and offline that would get value from these skills). For example, an offline company probably does not know a lick about SEO and how to get their pages to come up within the search engine results. They probably do not know anything about web design, email marketing, Pay-per-click etc.

What if you approached one of these companies, offering them some Internet related services in exchange for money or some of their products / services? Chances are they would jump at the opportunity. They can BENEFIT from what you have to offer and more often than not will be willing to pay for it.

Here is an example of what your list might look like:

Your Online Skills Local Companies That Need Me Writing Articles
  • Joe's Shoe Store
  • Hot Oven Pizza
  • Sherry's Salon and Spa
  • Any Business with a site they want to get listed for Free in the Search Engines
Website Development
  • Uncle Tom's Reno Business
  • Any Local Business Without Website
PPC
  • Any Local Business That Wants Traffic

Some other areas that you could offer your services in are:

  • logo development
  • website optimization
  • run conversion tests
  • lead management
  • adding autoresponder's
  • search engine optimization
  • content development

If you look at the date, this tutorial is dated 2009 (7 years ago). As you know, in online, things move fast.

@Cristina111 they should update the tutorial then. I'm reviewing this program and it doesn't look good when the info in the basic level certification is no longer accurate. And it's clearly causing people confusion.

Carson, the WA Jobs link says there is nothing there yet. Is that still being developed?

Thanks. I looked in the questions and Carson had a post, but when I clicked on the link it said the Page Could Not Be Found. I had heard they allowed this at one time, but something must have changed, so I will wait for Kyle's answer.

Why doesn't this get more comments etc. I see nobody asking where the WA Jobs page is. I would think this training would generate a lot more interest. I just can't believe I just now found it... Musta took a left when I shoulda took a right.

Carson -- this is very helpful, concretely listing how IM'ers can market themselves to different businesses. The gurus online are charging $3,000 in software just to "figure out how to approach" a biz on website design, data capture, autoresponder set up, newsletter set up and indexing page 1 at Google. What they say they're also including -- what must go on a website for contractual purposes + setting up payments w/the client + setting up schedules for product delivery + what to do if the biz does not pay. I think WA'ers could use guidance in terms of making sure they deliver what's needed + getting paid in a timely way. 50% up front + 50% at delivery? bkb2012
