I see some people bring too rude while they are claiming that they are in a better position, but yet they don’t bother to share their valuable tips on how they reached that level.

The problem here is that there are no “valuable tips” to share. I’ve been saying this over and over again. There’s no secret sauce.

Want to be successful? Offer something that has demand, and be more attractive than the competition. That’s all there is. Nothing else. Does that help? Not really - if you ain’t good, you won’t become good just because you “learn” you have to be good to be successful.

The problem here is that we have a ton of talentless hacks trying to make a quick buck. It won’t work.

Can you communicate well in English? If not, don’t come here and expect success until you do. If it takes you 2 years to learn English, you can start two years from now.

Can you do whatever it is you’re selling professionally? If you can’t, become a professional first (and that can take years), and only then come here and start selling.

If you just want to sell some slightly modified canva templates, you’re not going anywhere and no tips will ever help you.

If you are a graphic designer that displays hideous images in your profile (no clue about colors, fonts, composition, etc), you won’t get anywhere. Good taste isn’t something you can learn easily, either you have it or you don’t. Most don’t.

If you are a writer / translator / editor and you have typos and weird phrasing in your gigs / bio / FAQ’s, nobody is going to hire you.

If you have no business acumen (“getting” what works or not), we can’t help. A lot of this should be intuition, common sense. If you don’t have it, we can’t help.

Being here as a successful seller sometimes is a bit like being a doctor walking down the street and being approached by beggars asking you what’s your secret to be a doctor, because they all want to make doctor money. Guess what? Go to med school. You’re not qualified to be a doctor. And it’s not something I can teach you, because you don’t have the requirements to even understand it. And then that beggar is approached by 10 other beggars giving tips on how to be a doctor. And then all the beggars get on a circle repeating “thanks for the valuable information” to each other. And of course not one of them will become a doctor, so I really have no idea what they are all thanking themselves for.

It’s insane.

From now on you seriously have my respect… This is the exact thing I wanted to tell everybody here spamming thank you for the information…

The way you said the whole thing it’s just a smack on the face without even hurting the other person…

About the post, this is for the OP :- Thank you for the most invaluable and a useless post
