Woooooots~! After Trying for 7 months, I finally did it! The Feeling is FANTASTIC~! Man! I feel Uber Great Now! *Hops around and does a victory dance!*

Alright!!! Before I get over my head, here are the details of what I have done:

1. I bought a domain name titled with a pen name which I used at Ezinearticles.

2. Built a Blog With Monetized articles within, plus a free opt-in service on the sidebar.

2. Did some basic keyword research using google external keyword tool & wordtracker's free key word tool.

3. Wrote about 30 articles, one per day, and submitted them individually with a 2 days gap.

4. Ping my articles when they come live using Blog and Ping Tool - Use Pingler.com to Drive Traffic your Blogs and Websites (free)

5. Social Bookmark my articles using Automated Content & Bookmark Distribution | OnlyWire (free)

6. I was patient........ But not very patient..... So I tried out Adwords, just randomly placed about 300 over keywords related to the niche I was in.

7. Stick on the google analytics code.

8. Patience... Patience... Patience....

9. I had about 160 visitors from adwords, 80 from ezinearticles, 30 from unknown sources.

10. This morning I woke up, login into clickbank as usual, and POOF~! Magic! It's simply Magic! $53.18 in commission!! I made not just one, but 3 whole sales in a row!

AWESOME!!!

For those starters out there, the most important thing in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD is NEVER EVER GIVE UP! PERSEVERE ALL THE WAY!! Yahoo~!

Finest regards,
Edmund

    Awesome man.

    Although the title is misleading, as I originally thought you meant that you meant you only made 1 sale after 7 months of trying. It sounds like it didn't take you that long to write and submit and set up campaigns.

    Anyways... not trying to critique, but I guess it looks that way.

    What I really mean is congratulations... and I hope you make many more sales from here on out.

      Whoops~ Well, I hopped around several different methods to get that sale for 6 months plus, but it was only this campaign that created the magic! Never explained myself clearly over there, my bad ahaha..

      Thanks!!

    Thanks man! But I'm not very sure which is the traffic method that lead me to the sale though.. ahaha.. I basically just do and do and I forgot to track my stats. ahaha.. Wish I did though.. I will figure something though..

    Hope this isn't a silly question but do you know if your sale came from Adwords, Article Marketing or the "other sources"? Whichever one it was you want to upscale on that method of traffic generation.

    Here's to more sales in your Clickbank account buddy....

    Keep your adwords campaign going and track it. Give us an update with any success. Article marketing is great but if you made those sales from adwords you're on to something very very nice.

    Congrats, I know you must be felling quite a bit of relief as there are those that think they will never get a sale.
    But, you are proof that success is in part because you never gave up.
    Keep it up!

    I am always happy when I saw posts such as this. I am glad for you and wish you more success but please note that your first sale ( though very difficult to get, it is always like that ) is the beginning of the journey.

    Your second sale may take a while to come ( I am not GOD though and not predicting anything, just talking from experience ) but don't give up.

    It took me 1 year and about 2 months to make my first sale and the second did not come until 3 months later but I decided not to give up ( many thanks to the warriors ) and now I have done my first 2 $2,000 months and already done my first 3k month ( this month ) which is as a result of not keeping up.

    My advise to you is never to give up even when things seem to be going tougher. Remember one thing :

    Successing is a Journey and a set back is always a set up for a come back - a great come back.

    Have a great day.
