How did you make your first dollar internet marketing?

I was just wondering how everyone on here made their first bit of money doing internet marketing.

Mine was an ezine article pointing to a squidoo lens with affiliate links which pointed to a clickbank product.

Look forward to your input!

      With the very first product I created.

      I just wish I understood how much an average website made per month -
      at that time nobody was revealing any numbers, so I thought my monthly
      $1500 was too little!!

    My first dollar earned was almost on accident, years ago I put up a three page mini site that was promoting a dvd to psp converter. I had no idea about keyword research, seo or anything. I just made some graphics, typed up a bunch of text about the product and posted it. I ended up making a couple hundred dollars and it planted the seed of IM in me and I have been hooked ever since.

      He WAS the man! Not like these robbing loud-mouthed cheats you get nowadays. RIP Cory.

      I followed him - read all his stuff. But I always wanted to get "the perfect site that I know I need" - and instead of doing anything I sat until 8 years later before I decided to get whatever I could put together and got my first site.

      Wish I'd just done something. Even a basic 1-pager would have made money years ago.

        Article marketing/bum marketing is how I made my first profits. By focusing exclusively on ONE method (and ignoring everything else no matter how enticing) I was able to get into profit my first week or so and full time shortly after that.

        I believe the single most important factor for newbie success is focusing on ONE solid method that resonates with you. Don't get distracted. Ask a ton of questions about your chosen method, read everything you can on it and most importantly... TAKE CONSISTENT ACTION.

        To your success,

    My first dollar that I ACTUALLY RECEIVED in the bank account came from selling back pain products on my blog, this was before I started a website specifically aimed at back pain, so it was pretty exciting for me to actually receive a real money cheque and put it in the bank...

    The whole while I was expecting adsense to be my greatest money maker (LOL). That's funny because I just FINALLY received my first ever cheque from Adsense.. it was for $110... Now I took most of my adsense ads down and focus mostly on affiliate marketing.

    I bought and read Chris Carpenters 'Google Cash' and took action!

    Within the first couple of weeks I made a £200 commission promoting a finanical product - this was from one sale. From this point on I was addicted.

    Got too say I eventually came away from PPC as it got expensive after the slap. I now make my dosh in Niche websites and use mainly article marketing for traffic.

    I setup a Google Adwords campaign pointing directly to a clickbank product. It was back in the day when that was cool. I think the product was an mp3 download membership thing.

    I have no idea why I picked the product. It was crap. I was pretty new and not thinking it through.

    I made a couple of sales, but I lost money on the campaign. Despite making a loss, I got bitten by the bug and have been doing this Internet marketing stuff ever since.

      I have been an ebay seller since 1999 (long time) so I have made money on their. As for IM, it was in the Reverse Phone Number Search niche. Wrote about 25 articles and posted them to Ezine. This was a 2 years ago. It's funny because I still get a sale from time to time from those articles. I love it when that happens.

    I came across info about IM in the beginning after a stint on eBay where I made thousands for a few months. After my father-in-law passed away and we found lots of old books in boxes under his house, including a 1st edition Hemmingway, a few T.E. Lawrence and boxes of old African explorer journals. We sold them on eBay and couldn't believe how much they ended up being worth. I made my first $10 in affiliate commissions promoting an eBay wholesale dropship site.

      Me too. I earned from adsense but it was really a very small amount. I realized that it's not the best source of profits online.

      I guess the best business online now is not about selling but rather offering services to online marketers. You know why? Most online marketers can think of ways how to make money online but most of them have no idea how to put their plans into action.

      Let's just say that there are task which they need to outsource. And that task is the one we should take advantage of by offering our services. :-)

      But of course, I still do selling stuff like online business tools :-)

    I made my first dollars on a cpa for a psychic hotline. I never did believe in that stuff, but the offer was good so I researched and wrote about 20 articles and submitted them wherever I could.

    Even though the pay seemed low, $3.50 for each new lead, I made out pretty good. The psychic line was giving out the first reading for free, so it was easy to get them to do it once I had got them to the site.

    The only thing that I wish that I would have done differently was to send them to a landing page first to collect their info first. Other psychic lines pay more, but require upfront fees, so it is harder to get commissions. If I had a list of those who signed up I could have made a few more commissions from those people.

    I announced a 6 week tele-class "Get Your Dreams Out of the Drawer" in 2008 on craigslists and a couple yahoo forums and when my first order came in for $150 half way across the country I quickly organized a mastermind group of free and paid friends and family to support that one participant.

    I'm proud to say the content in our 1st tele-class generated a large unexpected salary increase and benefits of over $10,000/year for that one catalyst participant from her government employeer and many of the other participants reported their achievement of the specific measurable goals they choice in week one through the six steps to get your dreams out of the drawer training and mastermind support!

    The group got so much out of weekly homework and calls we expanded it to 10 weeks!! Fast forward two years and now we are asked to speak on stage with best sellinga authors and entrepreneurs on the Six steps to "Get Your Dreams Out of the Drawer" covered at that very first 10 week boot camp!

    Isn't being an entrepreneur great?!! <3Ruth

    I did it by total accident....I fell face first into Internet Marketing by looking for ways to earn extra money to go to Vegas with in 2007. I was being paid $10/hr to write articles, obviously neither of us knew what we were doing, he was paying me by the hour, I was just writing without regards to SEO etc. It took a while, but I realized what he was using my articles for and realized I could make a lot more than $10 from my article!

    Hmmm..I first came online back in the late 90's. I had a computer that had 15megs of memory back then and a gig was unheard of.

    I only came on line was to look for a certain information to help my dating game grow.

    I started posting on some of the early dating forums as a site I call sosymp because of all of the symps (stupid fools) on it.

    I had a rich dating history and wanted to help guys get better so after a lot of flaming crap going on I decided to launch a podcast show to get my ideas across. I was the first one in the dating now called Niche to do so.

    I formed a free forum to communicate with my listeners as I shared the real truth of dating that if your short fat and balding sorry you cannot date 6' tall models as you currently are.

    To pay the bills I started selling a collection of my first 140 plus shows as my only product.

    Some nerd (that is what proliferates the dating niche) named Rumi uploaded those shows to a forum so I got pissed and started the first to my knowledge paid membership site within the dating niche.

    A few years ago back in 2007 I wrote my first book "How to conquer your fear of women." It sold to my members like hot cakes.

    I was done then or so I thought. But in 2008 or so after a lot of begging of my students, I wrote my book "7 steps to becoming a player." I have since changed this to white wash the title or make it more vanilla to 7 steps to dating mastery. Unfortunately many males in today's society lack balls and manhood and the word player is too harsh on their sensitive ears.

    Since then I have developed a 51 day confidence program. A 20 day dance program. How to pimp out your plenty of fish profile video training program and how to blow up any online profile with my Atomic profiles program.

    I have also created from my own experience of over 20 years in the night clubs a book on how to meet women in the night clubs and several other products.

    I have spoken at Borders Book Stores in my area and at a local adult training program in the area of internet dating.



    I still own my site Zenmack.com where I do 5 podcast shows a week still and have almost 1000 shows in my past. I have helped thousands of young males find their manhood and conquer their fear of dating and women!

    In my offline life I own a personal training business. I have been in the fitness industry for over 25 years as I started as a Aerobics Dance instructor way back in the 80's.

    The first money I ever made online was through bum marketing and it actually came within two weeks of starting IM. I started racking up sales and thought 'man, this is gonna be easy!' until one day I tried logging into my stats and the website was gone. Needless to say I never got those several hundred dollars the company owed me, but I was able to transfer that knowledge to a reputable one using the same tactics and finally got my first check. Seems like ages ago now

      I made my first dollar selling an informational product on ebay about 10 years or so ago. I really never thought of it as internet marketing back then, but I suppose it was. I only did it for about a month.

      Fast forward to about 8 years later I made my first dollar promoting an affiliate product using adwords. It didn't take me long to give it back though.

    I got my first money in my bank by selling my own product targetting in the IM niche. The feeling is great once you have received your first dollar comes in. I believe you should also behave this way. After that, I start working on other niches as well. I hope that you will achieve your own success soon...

    Hope it inspires you...

    Well it seems like an eternity ago now but I picked a make money online-type product from Clickbank, promoted it on several traffic exchanges, and then spent hours surfing away. One day I fluked a sale and I then realised what could be possible if I actually created a website and sent targeted traffic to these affiliate products.

      Same here - mine was about seven years ago and it was an Ewen Chia Clickbank product - of course before that I made mad money (sarcasm) with paid-to-read email programs!

    I made my first dollar by selling SEO article last year in December. I was really very happy and became more encouraged to work on this niche.

    I became a drop-shipping salesman for a dehydrated food company in 1997 to help the folks at my church prepare for Y2K. Then a friend hooked me up with a guy who had a huge Y2K website, and I made money hand-over-fist. Until 1999, that is, when all of the folks who were seriously preparing already had their storable food and the panic rush never came. I'm just getting back into internet marketing now. (...and a touch embarrassed but very pleased to have been wrong about Y2K, by the way)

    My first dollar was made from an adsense niche site I started - I couldn't believe the idea of getting paid for someone clicking on ads on your website.

    I have been hooked on IM ever since - I still can't believe how amazing it is (compared to a "regular" day job).

    My first dollars were made via a screencast video promoting a clickbank product made at my work office at the time with people walking past in the background LOL. I didn't know what I was doing but made about $500 from the video alone and surprised the heck out of myself when i checked the account weeks later.

    Since then I have made things alot more professional hehe

    I started out with blogging. It's more like a personal blog and then I found out about paid posts. That was my first earnings online.

    I copied a 30 day system that I got for free and just went through it step by step by writing articles, bookmarking them answering questions on Yahoo answers etc.

    I created a blog all about how to fix Xbox 360's and made a few affiliate commissions off of it but nothing to write home about.
