I Just Made My FIRST SALE!!!!!

by Phil Jacobson 21 replies
This is a post from the guy who bought you the post "My Amatuerish Site Sux".

Well, I just made my first sale ($78.80!!!)and I'm celebrating!! Why not? I know there are people here who make this much per minute online, but I don't care!


(I made $40 once when I bought into something that included free traffic and a replica site. But that don't count!! )

Nothing beats the first hand confirmation that "THIS STUFF ACTUALLY WORKS"

A big thanks to all of you who gave me a lot of pointers both directly and indirectly.


Yeah!!!

  • Congrats!

    I remember when I saw my first sale from a Clickbank product, my jaw dropped and I couldn't speak for about 2 minutes. That "this is real" confirmation was something I'll never forget. I hope you enjoy many, many, many more of those!

    Hi!

    GREAT JOB PHIL! REALLY!

    It's so nice to hear people living the dream. It lifts up the spirit of members like me!

    Also, just a note:

    You have a great site, professional, very good graphics!. It even has a list building component, though you may have missed some typo's.

    1. "How many different marketing strategies have you trialed so far?"
    2. "its nice to know you can trial it for this long"

    1. I think you mean "tried"
    2. I think you mean "try"

    All in all, its great specially now that it is earning. Presently I can only wish to be in your shoes...Your doing great keep it up :-)

    Congrats Phil,

    Some people say you'll never forget your first sale. Great job too - your first sale is quite a substantial one.

    Just keep it up and duplicate what's working for you. Pretty soon, you'll be seeing sales coming in every other day.

        more yet to ... you think maybe the newer site helped? Lookin` good ...
        some suggestions.

        chance for another keyword placement in the ALT tag with a graphic

        Break the paragraph around your optin form into two paragraphs and

        ONLY RELEVANT information. ** I won't share your EMAIL with anyone."

        ... below the optin form itself and colour red text ... test a few different
        opening lines also ...

    You shouldn't Phil. Everyone here at some point made their first online sale just like you did. Doesn't it feel *%$% awesome!

    Well done mate.

      Great stuff, The first is the hardest to come by, like so many other things in life.
      Now use that 78 bucks in an intelligent way and turn it into 5 more sales.
