These sales aren't necessarily "profit sales", but you have gained a customer that you can sell to over and over again. However sadly, most newbies don't have a huge advertising budget, so instead, they have to run low cost PPC marketing campaigns, and use tons of free advertising to get customers into the door.
How willing are you to stick by your internet business and see if it works for you? Most people thinks that if you don't see sales immediately, then you probably won't see alot of sales in the future down the line. This is amazingly false. There are some people only who only made a handful of sales in their first year, and now they're making over 5-figures a month. So just because things aren't go so well now, you never know what's in store for the future - especially if you market your business correctly.
Yes, I know... marketing online is difficult, but you must have patience. Don't worry - your time will come when it comes to earning your fair share of profits on the internet. Just don't proceed in haste. Make sure you take your time, learn what you need to know, keep educating yourself, and keep striving to get more new customers. The more you do this, the more likely you are to start building momentum in your business, and start getting alot of free and relevant traffic to your website.
For some people (depending on their advertising strategy), it just takes years for them to see the profitable results that they have dreamed of. There's nothing wrong with this... eventually you will have a thriving business. It may not happen this year, but it will happen eventually down the line - especially if you keep marketing each and everyday.
You have to have faith that your internet business will succeed, and everything that you do online should reflect this. For example, you should come up with a daily marketing plan. Start split testing your ads. Start setting up different autoresponder sequences to see which on is the most profitable for you. And more. There are alot of things that you can do to make your business profitable... I suggest you start looking into them.
Don't do the same 1 marketing strategy over and over again everyday. You have to diversify your efforts. What if you build up 1 strategy and it works successfully for you, and then all of a sudden this 1 strategy no longer becomes effective for you? What would you do then? You would have to start from scratch all over again.
You can overcome this situation before it even happens. Relying on 1 marketing strategy will put you on the borderline of going out of business quickly. Use a multitude of strategies so that you can get targeted traffic from all the corners of the internet. It isn't hard to do.
Make sure you take these tips and use them in your internet business today. It will be more than worth it.
Good luck with your internet marketing efforts.
