Now don't get me wrong - I've been busting my butt on figuring out how to get effective traffic to my landing pages. I just signed up for Tracking202, something you all should do if you're serious about making money via PPC to CPA. But it's a nice feeling to log on to your computer after a long day of school and work, and seeing that you're $300 richer.
There is money to be made in this game, ladies and gents. I've got 2 sites up and running, and I'm driving traffic to them with PPC on Adwords.
I'm reinvesting my profits in new domains, websites, and articles for SEO purposes - back into the business - because I don't want yesterday to be a fluke.
There are opportunities all around - niches waiting for you to advertise. I've got at 9 domains waiting to be converted into money-generating landing pages. If 2 campaigns can net me $300, then imagine what you can earn with 11.
This takes work. This takes research. This takes time. You will not make amazing profits overnight. The day before yesterday I had a net loss of $40, when $140 in Adwords spending only got me $100 in conversions. I'm far from even being good at this.
But that's what it's about. Learning. Growth. Improving. And keeping your head on the grind and doing work. You WILL get better. You WILL make profits. Have 100% in your abilities, and look at what the best are doing. They're successful for a reason. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, it's also the quickest way to shorten your learning curve. Do as the best do.
I have every intention of making $1,000 per day by the end of this summer. I'll still do PPC, but I'll do media buys too. You can't limit yourself to a headspace of being okay with mediocrity. I won't be satisfied with $100/day because I know what's possible... why would you settle for that when you can secure your future for years to come with a bit more work?
You can be incredibly successful in this business. I've seen success from friends and strangers, and I've tasted it firsthand. It's exciting, it's tiresome, and it's rewarding. And you are your own boss. Period.
I find it amusing when people say "I'm going to give affiliate marketing a try, and see how it is." You won't be successful if you're "giving it a try". Commit yourself. You know it works. The only way it won't work for you is if you give up because you don't want to do the work. No one is saying it is easy... but it as a heck of a job - no office, no boss - and the earning potential is astounding.
So log on and do work. Don't put off building that site, or doing that keyword research, until tomorrow. Because tomorrow will always be just a figment of your imagination... there's only what you are doing right now. Here's to making a bunch of money, and getting that lifestyle you want. You already have the image of it in your mind. Now go seize it; earn it, take what is rightfully yours. Enjoy the process. And reap the benefits that come with hard work.
To your success,
