My 1st Year doing I.M how much $ I made

36 replies
well I started I.M in march this year and here are my rough estimate stats

Site: averaged about 130 views a day (no google love at all just my writings)

$ about $600 which came as one big check last week( i let the money sit all year and waited until the end to withdraw it from account

I worked about 5 hours total for the week No affliate stuff( I don't understand it and am not interested in it)

just only wrote a few articles and did a little Social bookmarketing. Nothing else

I know this might seem like a small amount to many but it is like a million to me Why? because my family celebrated the check it felt better than any paycheck I ever worked for at a regular job

I Thank all the members of this site (but God first)

I learned all IM for you guys and I thank you all

    I find it amusing and interesting that your family was happy with your first check. I would be happy also to share with my family any check that comes my way from my IM endeavors.. Good luck and happy holidays..

    You should be proud of yourself. Not everyone has the same goals as others online.

    Some people want to make enough money online to pay for a car payment. That is FINE.

    Some people want to make a mortgage payment each month from their online earnings and nothing else.

    Some people want to earn a full time income online so that they can quit their job and stay at home, which is what the majority of people have in common here.

    Congratulations on getting your check.

      What do you mean when you say no affiliate stuff? Are you saying you made $600.00 from providing a service or selling your own product?

    That's more than I did my first year. You'll probably make 10 times more the next year. I did and it kept doubling ever since.

    Hi Spiritjoy

    Your post is very moving and what you are doing is wonderful. I hope that 2010 will bring you even move success online.

    Article marketing is the best way to get traffic to your website for free. Niche Profit Classroom goes into this in great detail in their video series and its how I am getting most of my traffic.

    The social traffic from facebook, twitter etc can also help but search traffic is by far the best.

    Try doing some tracking and see which keywords are converting and also make sure you are building a list.

    Happy 2010!
