Just got an email from Tradebit, stating that they have just payed me the grand sum of 69 cent.
The interesting thing is that I only have one product on Tradebit (a product of my own creation) and I haven't even started promoting it yet. Talk about "build it and they will come!"
The product is good though, and cheaply priced, and the artwork is well designed and features my unique logo.
I've got my feet off the ground!
Less than a dollar off the ground, but I'm delighted, and I'm going to keep working, to make more great products, to find great products to promote, to EXPERIMENT AND REFINE, then RINSE AND REPEAT!
Thanks everyone who has helped me so far. I love this forum, and I'm glad I decided to stop thinking about making money online, and actually do it.
