I Had My First $100 Day

33 replies
I was at a seminar yesterday and I got home to an email saying I had a purchase from Clickbank for $97 USD (about $125 AUD for me). I have no idea how the person found me.

I had just put up a new product in the parenting niche that I have not advertised to anyone. All I did was do those five clickbank ads that they offer you. To my knowledge I have no affiliates and I certainly have not gotten as far as emailing people to ask for JV partners.

It happened all by itself. I did a little dance around the house then rang my mommy. My kids were excited for me and it really did something for me. You see, I have been setting up my systems for about 18 months now.

I have an autoresponder in place and a marketing campaign, although I hvaen't started it with this new site of mine. I am excited! I am excited! If I can sell one, then I can sell two, and who knows, once I start marketing perhaps I can sell alot more.......

Clever ME!!!!!!!

    Well done mate! I'm still working toward my first $100 day and it's good to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

    All the best to you,

    That's awesome, congratulations. It really is a wonderful feeling to make money. Wait 'til later when you practically make money out of thin air! Or when you get to the point when you see $1,000 your first hour! It's more than a shot of adrenaline. Keep it up!

    Ugh, makes me think of the first $1 I made. How pathetic. Since then though... never again! Can't believe how naive I was back then, lol. I was excited about making $5! Now, I want to go for $20k/month. I can live with that.

    Btw, I'm not including copywriting or SEO services. I'm wanting to maintain that through affiliate marketing and CPA marketing only. All else is extra.

      Yeah, $7,500 last month, but this month sucked. It was a little over half that. Not sure what happened (I mean I do, but why, not sure), but it just dropped out of no where. Will definitely be adding more sources of income though. I really want to get over the $10k/month hump.

    Congratulations! I am so happy for you. It's an awesome feeling to see money in the bank from all the hard work. I know the feeling of sweat, tears, and feeling like it would never happen and when it does, you either dance like you did or dance and cry for joy like I did. Awesome!!!

    You should write an ebook about it and sell it because that must have been the easiest $100. Congrats!

    That is very cool, this is a very important starting point. You might just be on the cusp of a break through. Either way, remember the feeling and work towards another one.

    Fantastic job.... The first one is always the hardest one and for most people, including veterans, it's a relief to know that your product is selling because you can do all the research you want but until the product is actually LIVE then you will never know how the market will react.

    CONGRATS Kimothy...

    Everything starts with that first sale...sometimes you just dont
    know when that sale will come from....but when it hits, something
    very positive happens...

    Now instead of thinking " will it work"...you are thinking " it DOES work"

    And that will re-enforce your belief system big time...

    Your mind starts looking for new and better ways to get MORE sales..
    ..

    My Friend...you have started on a fantastic journey...

    Keep us informed..

    $100 is nothing online but I understand that feeling as a $9 sale ( was later a refund lol) motivated me this month of August to take action which has finally helped me cross the $1k barrier after such a long time.

    $100 sales are great - Congratulations on the quick turnaround on it.

    It doesn't matter how much you make, $100 is still a nice little earner.

    Hi Kimothy!

    That sale is a "wink" to you that there is potential for you to make thousands more! What you need to know is that thousands of people jump into Internet and affiliate marketing everyday, and thousands more throw in the towel every day! Do you know why?

    Simple. Most dive in with all they got seeing, and literally "smelling" the bills...that is until things start going wrong all over the place, and they start bleeding financially. They then end up having to stop because financially they can't take the heat anymore, plus they have $0 to show for all their efforts. Yet you, without having put any effort have already made your first sale.
    Be really encouraged by this! Write down your feelings and thoughts somewhere. This willl really come in handy when discouragement hits (it will at some point). When all these elements start to rear their ugly heads, you will be fully equipped to stay afloat, and not get beat down!

    Maybe you will put in extra effort today, but be aware that there is a possibility that the rush of income you are expecting might stall a little. Know however, that if you focus, and apply yourself CONSISTENTLY, you will start to hear the thundering noise of continuous profits coming towards you!

    Congratulations to you, and thank you for taking the time to inspire all of us!

    All the best to you!

    Richard

    Ah, i remember my first $100 day. What a great feeling. The funny thing is that my first $100 day was the same day as my first $1000 day (it was a lucky day).
