Making money online is quite an interesting three words. After two years of grinding it out, I’m glad to say that I’ve finally arrived. I have read more articles and tried more online programs than you can shake a stick at. It has been at times very frustrating and tiresome.
Set your price. Most social media specialists find this difficult to do at the beginning specially if they don’t have a portfolio yet. As mentioned earlier, you can work for free then use it to solicit paid Jobs.

Later on, when they’ve already seen the results, you can start charging them hundreds of dollars.
Wider audience. While you can certainly find your own job opportunities on job boards like Monster, or in the local papers, the number of potential positions you can try for is limited. You’re just one person, so it’s literally impossible for you to check out all the possibilities. Also, many companies never advertise their vacancies, they develop contacts at temp agencies and whenever they are in need of short-term help, they simply let the agency know. This means that if you are working with the temp agency, you are instantly expanding your potential job search to companies that never would have advertised in the papers anyway.

Resume. Is your resume updated? Does your resume look super professional? Is your resume great to look at? Correct font? Great format? Are there points-of-interest to potential employers? No matter how good the networking – business card – engaging conversation, you need a great resume.
