In May I couldn't make any money. Ditto in June. But I was determined! By the end of July, even though I hadn't made a cent over the Internet, I was already very experienced and I felt that the next project I would create would bring me some cash. In July 23rd I had a talk with the fellow successful internet marketer Casey Gentles who shared with me his golden experiences, and set me on the RIGHT track in Internet marketing.
The next day I made $120. I am not joking.
Well, I couldn't replicate that success for every day, but from July 24rd to August 21st, I made $2,451. If you project it to a whole month by adding four days, I will have made $2830 in my first money-making month over the Internet. That's nearly $100/day.
Not bad, for my standards it's something like earning as much as Bill Gates!
So here comes how I did it. I made that money all from Clickbank. I promoted 5-6 different products, 4 of which returned at least one sale. So it's not only one product.
My method of promotion has largely been article marketing. While this will sound "holy crap" to some of you, I wrote 10 articles per day, and I now have 300 articles published on EZA and other various article sites such as GoArticles, articlesbase and Dashboard.
After a while the niches I'm in sound so familiar that it takes no more than 10 minutes to write a 300-word article. But of course you can write so many articles per day (regardless of how easily you do so) before your head explodes, so I'm now into outsourcing articles in the niches I'm in; and writing new articles for new niches I wish to explore.
My CTR's are high on both article directories and in my sites. (around %40 in EZA, and over %70 in my sites) The conversions are very high, while of course this differs from niche to niche; I am surprised when I see 50 hops and no sales.
Before you ask, my niches are: the relationship niche and the female health niche. I promoted some products which made sales in the sexuality niche, but their conversions were kind of terrible, so I decided against wasting my time with them.
I am EXTREMELY and ABSOLUTELY thankful to this forum for making me so much money (in my standards!). So I will be more than willing to help you with any questions, especially from newbies.
