Without a handful of targeted traffic, you are not going to see the result.
If you’re just starting out online and want to earn a full-time income, I suggest you start from the easier part. Freelance writing can help you generate fast cash in a short while and you don’t have to sell, promote or even build a mailing list.

Approve Jobs You Can Do
Freelance writing jobs would come in mass, in order to succeed and meet up a deadline which is paramount to your future success, only approve jobs that you can do within the specified period. I know you might be tempted to approve all especially when the payout is pretty enticing, but don’t. Credibility speaks louder than anything as far as internet business is concerned.
Build Your Writing Portfolio
With the huge demand of writers out there, only those with a writing portfolio will benefit from it. In order not to be segregated and begin to lose writing jobs, create a business portfolio that showcase the recent and old jobs you have completed.
