No this isn’t a scam.
Go knock on the door of twenty businesses in your town.
Say you’re a social media wiz.
You grow social media accounts and can drive more traffic to their store.
You charge $500 a month to manage a social media account.
Chances are, out of those 20, you’ll land at least two clients.
You’re now making $1000 a month.
I wonder what happens when you ask more stores.
Your revenues increase.
Needing money to start a business is an excuse.
If you want to start something, go out and sell yourself as a service.
