Oh my god mere words cannot describe my feelings!

I have finally broken the barrier to get my first sale of US$28.00, which is RM97.40!

Oh my god...

This is what and how I did it:

1. Created a landing page from Blogger. ($0)
2. Wrote my presell page. ($0)
3. Write ONE(1) article per day, for every day, and submit them to EzineArticles. ($0)
4. Built 12 backlinks per day pointing to my landing page. ($0)

Total Time Spent: 29 days of work.

Note: I dropped this project already, but there are still 17 pending articles in my EzineArticles account, and so I hope I can secure more sales. Regardless, I dropped this project because of a few mistakes, but I am already working on a new project.

My Mistakes:

1. Created a one-page landing page.
2. Backlinks point to the main site, and not an inner page.

Here's a tip for Warriors seeking the first sale: Never. Give. Up.

I worked every day for this site for almost 30 days already, and no sales.

I started on 23/8/2009, and my first sale was 22/9/2009.

It would seem stupid that what you are doing is fruitless, but just keep on it and you WILL succeed!

    I just proved everyone that said it was impossible, possible!

    I come from somewhere where internet marketing seems to be a stupid idea, guess not!

    You say you come from a country where people think IM is stupid. That sounds like Earth.

    Yes! Plenty of people also told me it was impossible.

    Even now when I encourage my friends and family to get involved with my projects many don't believe it can happen. Such a shame but then some people are destined for different things. I'm just pleased I, and others here, have found something that works and is worthwhile.

    I have been visualizing myself writing such a post since I first joined here, and now I AM writing one.

    The next step for me is to get past the payment threshold, otherwise it's the same as not getting paid!

    I still can't believe it, I saw the sale and I thought I was sleeping! My heart is still pounding heart, and luckily I have my family here to shout to lol!

    Hey congratulations! Isn't it great to get that feeling of accomplishment? You seemed to have worked hard and it paid off! Great work.

    Could you enlighten us on what you did to achieve this?

    Article marketing?
    List building?
    Blogging?
    Video marketing?
    or maybe Twitter marketing?

    Since there are so many ways to make money and drive traffic, that all work, it would be cool to know some more details for the beginners out there =)

    Anway, good luck and take care!

    - Chris

      No problem! I always wanted to do that, but I fear it's just something small!

    Dude, that's awesome! That's more than the majority of
    people who ever try making money on the internet because
    they quit too soon.

    Great job and congrats!

    Congratulations! Now you just need to reinvest your sales so that youcan generate a more profitable business. Capture traffic from your landing page and get more customers in the backend. Most people buy the 2nd or 3rd time they encounter a product. Ezinearticles took so long! Try go articles and hubpages. They work the same and faster too!
    Goodluck. When I discovered my marketing techniques I made a sale in 3 days to a total of $241! I reinvested it and bought my own domain. Would you like to check it out? Check below how I earned $1000 in 28 days!
