My name is Jesse Creel and I started internet marketing in 2012. I got my own self hosted domain [Link removed by moderator] in 2016.
Things are so bad right now that my business is slowly shutting down. My maxed out credit card won't accept any more auto payments and my email marketing subscription has been disabled.
I drive DoorDash for a living and make ok money but I'm looking for more.
As far as the work I've put in so far I blog maybe once month and send the post to my list. I would like to pick one product and focus on selling that rather than trying to sell a bunch of different things at the same time. So far my efforts have been geared towards Clickbank university.
I did have an email list of about 500 people but once I reached that mark I decided to turn the ads off and focus on making a sale. Looking back on it I think I should have kept collecting emails.
I never made a sale. One guy even told me to go **** myself.
I ended up deleting all but 4 subscribers. Looking back on that, huge mistake. Even if they were dead I might have been able to bring them back to life.
But they did have some crazy weird foreign names some of which looked like the person who wrote it wasn't with it the time they signed up.
Anyways, I'm back to building a list again ( if I can ever pay my credit card bill down again).
I have about 75 subscribers.
I have experience building capture pages, and presell pages along with dabbling in autoresponders, which I admittantly still have to work on.
Maybe I've already answered my own question to make sales, just work harder. But I'm wondering, is there anything else I need to know to make a decent living off internet marketing?
You tell me, because obviously I don't know how to make sales.
