Describe your Best Day as an Internet Marketer

Since we get a lot of topics about, "How Much Money Do You Make" that don't go anywhere, I thought it may be helpful to approach the conversation from a different perspective. So if you feel like participating, tell us about your best day as an internet marketer and what happened to really change the course of your career.

Maybe it was some great advice you heard or maybe it was a key client you landed or a new process you tried...I think it will make some entertaining reading for everyone.

Personally, my best day had absolutely nothing to do with money. I was working for a client out of Australia right after the big poker sites got seized by the FBI, and this client had me cranking out press releases for a different gaming site that accepted US players. But I was getting ultra-creative with these to make them newsworthy while pointing to our affiliate site, and we were averaging 3,000-5,000 hits per press release within an hour or two of launching them.

Well, on about the 12th day of doing this, my client calls me from Australia, which is something he had never done before. It was probably three AM his time as well so I was thinking that the FBI had to have come down hard on him or something really bad. It was quite the opposite though; he said, "Playboy wants to interview me to do a feature piece about online gambling, but I'm in Australia. So I'll pay you $xxxx to do it for me as the company spokesman."

So I called the number he gave me and they asked if I was available to travel to California for two interviews; one for Playboy and the other for Playboy Radio. And I figured that meant a trip to the Playboy Mansion, so I said yes without even thinking twice about it. That never happened though; I just went to their studios in LA for the interviews and then flew back home...so I didn't get to meet Hef or anything cool like that. They did treat me like a celebrity though and it was a very memorable trip.

Anyway, that one day got me more personal exposure than money could buy and I ended up being quoted as the premiere online poker expert in the US for months after that incident. And while I was still too new to Internet Marketing to capitalize on it, it eventually led me to a great job with an IM firm in Houston and the knowledge of how to become an authority in just about any niche. It was a very good day.

    I am looking forward to better days But my best day was the first time I received a paycheck in the mail from Click-bank for my first month. Its when I realized it was possible to make money on the Internet with very little experience at that time.

    My best day was the first day I looked fror writing work and got hired to write 30 articles.. That was over 5 years ago and I still have that client, as well as many others. Some are regular and some are once off but it showed me that I could make money, even if I couldn't hold down a regular job due to my health issues.

    I would say the best day of my internet marketing, would have been when everyone I knew told me it was not possible to make money on the internet and I showed them a cheque that also changed my life and I stopped listening to nay Sayers.

      This.

      I've had countless amazing days. And now it's becoming such that the bad days are getting drowned out by the massively positive days, which is a happy reminder of why I do what i do.

      The rewards far outweigh the crappy moments, which wasn't the case when i first started.

      It's nice as hell to reap the rewards of intense effort, braining storming and mental/physical strain.

    Everyday is a good day that I am my own boss, pay my own bills and have nobody to report too!

    This industry created total freedom for me and God bless Al Gore, inventor of the Internet!

    When I received my first paycheck from Clickbank, it still makes me tear up a little bit because I knew that it was proof that I didn't need to work the traditional 9 to 5 and go to work every single day. Had I just put in a consistent effort since then, I'd probably be a multi-millionaire by now.

    It's all about consistency. Literally, the most important thing in internet marketing. Wake up at the same time, do everything every single day and you'll be successful.

    Getting 20 applications for my $7500 mastermind - and turning down all but my favorite 12. That was fun.

    Everyday is equal for me. But one day which is my memorable day as an internet marketer. Different problems are wide and varied, and different online marketers have got different aims. I completely pleased doing $500K 12 months and also functioning 10-20 time a week, although some may wish to produce million money businesses.
