    Newbie to forum here.

    Like many Im sure who are on here, I too have been scammed many many many times. Extremely frustrating. Alot of people out there making thousands just by sending u an ebook. Big deal.

    I am a technical person, but dont like sales, that is searching and bringing people to programs, however it seems that most programs do this. I cant stand the fact that most programs if not all, do not mention what exactly you are doing. Its just a bunch of promises. If I am to enroll in something I would like to know exactly what Im doing.

    I have a real interest in Ebay. I have tried 3 times to make it work, and have gotten into good programs with one caveat. You will never find wholesalers that can beat the ebay price. I have bought and had accounts with wholesalers no middleman. At thier best promotions its impossible to beat the avg ebay price for a product. So I dont know where these people get thier products from, and no powerseller is going to reveal that. So that is screwed unfortunatly.

    So that leaves me with all this sales crap. I am willing to work hard. I cant work much longer as a technician, because of a debilitating back and hip. I have to get a home based business going now because it will take a couple years min to establish. I would just rather that there be minimum sales required. I am computer literate, and dont mind computer work at all, and it may be that I have to train in building websites or something, but rather not deal with alot of sales.

    So forgive me for the long letter. As an introductory I feel I needed to express a background, and where I would like to go.

    Im open to suggestions, for what is going to work.
    I have reviewed wealthyaffiliate, 1% MOLB, and MOIS all of which seem to go the sales route by affiliation. Wish I would be interested, but its still sales. Does this leave me doomed? Attempt anyway?

    Thanks for your time[​IMG]

    I really dont want to advertise my own stuff but when you said it annoys you when you have to sign up to programs without knowing what to do, I couldn't help but think of the program I use.

    You sign up for free and then are told everything. Or if you want you can contact me from my site.

    If you want you can visit my site via my signature below. I really dont want to pressure you. Make up your own mind.

    You can do freelance writing part time, people are always looking for writers.

    I've also tried to get eBay to work, and like you ran into the same problems. I couldn't really get any good wholesale sites. I'd pay fifty bucks for access to them and then I'd just end up with crap like Tuesday Morning that everybody already knows about anyway.

    My suggestion? "Attempt anyway". Yes, it's sales, but it's a very impersonal sales approach. And once you get things up and running, the money really does roll in pretty easily. I think it's worth giving a shot. Fifty bucks -- you learn a lot, and if you work hard enough you'll make a lot of money. Sounds good to me [​IMG].

    Hello Hightower,

    Hopefully, you will have many ideas today from responses.

    I have been working with eBay since 2001, and joined Wealthy Affiliate University because I plan to move totally off eBay.

    It was a great place to begin for retail, I am just not happy with the continuous policy changes. It is like you are working for eBay.

    The above suggestion about article writing may be something to consider.

    I know in Wealthy Affiliate Jobs, I see many different Jobs Wanted and Needed posted, such as:
    -Manual website submission to hundreds of search engines,
    -HTML Skills
    there are many possibilities to make money online.

    I would suggest keep asking and looking around until something sparks an interest.

    Have a wonderful day!

    If you are open to owning a website you could sell personalized products. No real selling, just advertising your site. I have found a few of these companies that seem legit and the holidays are a great time to start. Good luck.

    true wholesalers require tax id. if not , they are middle men.
