    Yeah no kidding - first sale is a bit of a rush. I remember mine - even though it was 5 years ago for a dental insurance product that I never sold another of ever. LOL.

    That's really great extreme76, my first sale was $2.50 commission it was a good few years ago, but I still remember the excitement of that first sale.

    It still took a while to be in profit, you have the right idea, tweek a little build consistency then repeat.

    The first sale is probably the best feeling ever, this is the point where you realise this actually works and you've done something right.

    Now you need to figure out what that was... then you'll see the $$$ more often.

    I was the same as you, before I got my first sale I spent a lot of time and money doing stuff which day after day I didn't get anything. Then I decided to take a step back and try again in a different way... and guess what. I made a sale in 3 days.

    The feeling was like I could accomplish anything...

    Good on you extreme.... hope you get many more!

    congratulations extreme76. My first online sale was by accident when I joined an MLM website in year 2002. One evening I received a check in my mail for $40 commission selling a handbag?? It triggered my first interest to seriously look into internet marketing.

    last month (only 2 weeks)

    7088 impressions
    209 clicks
    5 conversions
    $5.65

    ps these are only email submits

    and on market leverage
    this month
    2270 impressions
    5 clicks
    1 conversion
    $ 29

    can you see any improvement to be made from these stats (dont forget im a total newbie)

      They see things different on there side, no such thing as luck with Aff Mgrs...only conversion numbers.

      1 in 6! That would be pretty darn good on a consistent basis though.
      erm guess what will i get another call again today COS I MADE ANOTHER SALE WOOOOHOOOO!

      IM HAPPY GUYS

      its happening im starting to see money $10 a day from adsense and yesterday on my site i had 2 clicks and 1 sale $32 i think its getting better before 1 in 6 now 1 in 2 better start sending some traffic now

      thanks guys your the best!!

    Hi extreme76

    I made my 1st sale a few weeks ago ($49) and this gave me encouragement and so far have made just over $400 in the last few weeks.

    On another point one of my clickbank sales was made after just 11 clicks another product i promoted had nearly 400 clicks with no sale (i ditched promoting that one)

    luckily my promotions are done using a free method so I am looking at all profit (less my time) which I have reinvested into hosting and an autoresponder and I am now starting to build a mailing list

    Keep going and well done it's a real buzz

  • I just got into CPA and made my first sale, $3.00 on a dating email submit. Cost me $48 in adwords cost. Nowhere to go but UP at this point. The $45 lost is my tuition I feel.

    thanks
    Congrats extreme! The first "sale" that comes from "selling nothing" is the best. I still remember mine as well - July of 2001 - and it's been a crazy ride ever since.

    Keep up the good work, and good luck!

      as mentioned above

      monday= 6 clicks 1 conversion= $30

      tuesday=2 clicks 1 conversion =$30

      today 841 clicks = 0 conversions =7,764,278 impressions = 0.01% ctr

      and a fecking bill of £60.73


      the only thing i changed on the campaign is

      Ad serving:

      Optimise: Show better-performing ads more often (Recommended)
      Rotate: Show ads more evenly

      i changed it from optimize to rotating ? therefore 841clicks 7,764,278impressions

      but no sales!

    yeah. I have been with marketleverage for a while, but I still have not made one sale. i hate to say it, but I think they are involved in lead shaving. This has led me to believe this because their stat counter is WAAAAYA off. Their count stater showed something else than mine. I had 200 clicks and theres only had 4 clicks. Is something fishy going on? This is why I tend to stay away from affiliate programs and market my own products.
