Warriors,

I just wanted to send out a post saying that after working on this project since January, I finally got my first product out!

I've been doing online marketing for over 3 years. Once I perfected my ways of promoting products, I began taking on clients and offering SEO services. The client has been very happy with the results, which makes me happy.

I decided to release a product showing everything I do to make money online and what I offer my clients. If any of you have personally met me, you know that I love talking about online marketing and am always giving out any advice to people who want to get into making money online. I'm proud of my product and know that it will help people if they apply themselves. Even though I don't make a 6 digit figure just yet, I still make a good amount of money doing this and always enjoy telling others how I do it.

I thought putting together a product would be easy, but I swear I ran into every obstacle there was.

First off, I hired someone to build my website that told me they've created their own online products before, but while in the middle of building the site, I discovered that she didn't have a clue about online marketing. She built an excellent website, but what should of only taken a couple weeks took close to 2 months.

I crashed my website, had outbound links in my ebooks unclickable, had to rewrite, rework, rehash, rebuild several times. I yelled, cursed, and began disliking this project in the last few weeks. I know I drove my wife crazy too! LOL

What I'm getting at is if it wasn't for networking, talking to others, and talking to people on Warrior Forum, I would of never got this product out.
With all the mistakes and problems I ran into putting out my product, I will be much more prepared when I put out my 2nd product. (which is already in the works)

Thank you to everybody who has talked to me, reviewed my product and has given me advice. I couldn't of done it without the awesome people at WF!!!

      Thanks everybody. I'm definitely going to try different copies to see which ones will convert better.

      I've already made a few sales today and have a couple people on board to help me promote...

      Great work and congratulations on your first product

      All those mistakes you made will just make you a stronger and more experienced IMer

      Al

      BTW: Is that an Iron Maiden shirt you are wearing?

        Al,

        Yes it is an Iron Maiden shirt. They'll be playing in Los Angeles in less than a month. I believe this will be my 6th time seeing them live...

          Very cool - I have seen them a bunch of times too

          When they did the "A Matter of Life and Death" tour they had this British band Bullet for my valentine supporting them

          A friend of a friend works with them and hooked me and this girl up with All access passes for the Camden NJ show - we got right in the VIP pit and could almost touch the band - good times

            Awesome! I got to play rock star a couple times at Maiden shows and kick it backstage. One of the best ones was I had front row seats at Long Beach Arena in 2004-2005 with backstage passes.

            I always thought the only way I'd get that close to see the band live was to fight my way to the front...

    How's that?

    One sale means nothing really. Many people end giving up after their first 30 sales, probably hard earned sales across several months and those are the one that DON'T even want to remember their first sale and return back to their regular jobs.

    Al.


    I understand your point, but for me, the first sale was DEFINITELY the sweetest.

    I was 15 and at that point I was the only "teenager" in the game. That first sale helped me realize that I could definitely do it.

      You were 15 years old? Wow! That's awesome.

      I remember the first time I made money online was back in 1997. I belonged to SMC (really cheesy dropshipping company) I put something up on ebay that cost me $20 and sold it for $100. Right then I was hooked...

    Yup. Started right here on the WF when I was fifteen. Worked out, didn't it? ;-)

    Exactly, the first sale gets you addicted. The rest get you more addicted.

    Before you know it, you need to do a million-dollar launch just to get to normal :-D
