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
