My First Amazon Sale Today. My First Clickbank Sale 16 days ago. 1 mth and half into IM! Have Hope

37 replies
Hi guys I posted in this same forum 16 days ago about my first Clickbank sale. If you want, you can go to that post here "My First Clickbank Sale"

If you still haven't made any money online, then I'm the living proof that internet marketing is NOT a scam and that you can make money online.

I started IM exactly on around the 15th of November 2010.

And I did have my first CLICKBANK sale 16 days ago. And I reported it on this same forum 16 days ago.

What happened is that the site that brought me the first sale on Clickbank is a site that I worked on barely 5 hours for a week then left it alone, and it brought me the sales about 3 weeks later. Detailed info on that on that thread.

Lately like 1 week later I had another sale from that same site. (I didn't touch it whatsoever).

And the reason I didn't touch it was because I already turned my back on Clickbank and was already studying to make an Amazon niche site.
Two weeks ago I completed this Amazon site and did a little bit of backlinking. But stopped with 4 days of backlinking (about 2 hours a day) because my college gives me a lot of assignments.

And whoila today I randomly logged into my Amazon Associates account and got 5 items shipped just two days ago!!

I'll attach at the bottom both the Clickbank and Amazon sale proof so that it will help some people who can't believe my story, lol.

So I earned $99.69 + $33.58 + $5.86 in total with IM with about 1 month and two weeks? But with about 1 week for the clickbank site and 2 weeks and half for the Amazon sites?

I know it's not a lot of money, but I see many people here on the forum saying that they want to give up, they think making money through IM is scam etc.

So those of you who think like that, believe me, I'm honest.
Making money through affiliate marketing (that's the only one I've done) is possible.
And both Clickbank and Amazon work. Although clickbank gives you more money, I prefer amazon since it's more real products that are shipped. I don't like too much the idea of selling info products lol, but that's just me.

So take action now, belive in yourself, get some plans, attach to it, and after you finish, forget it, and log in to your account in a few weeks, and the magic will happen, lol.

I know the frustration when you have money only spent and never earned. But have hope, I think that most of WSO's sold here on WF special offer section work, just pick one to your taste and stick to it. They probably all work 96%.

Good luck everyone.
Isac

    I wonder how you made it. Were you been preparing for several months and you became an IM just a month back?
    We, the newbies, want to know how you made and not the statement you made. Please feel free to tell us the efforts and making of an amazon niche web site. That would help us a lot. Thanks in advance.

      Hello vgnair. No I haven't come back from anywhere.

      November 15th 2010 was the start of my whole IM.
      Didn't know what was IM before, didn't know what backlinks were, what affiliates meant, never heard of Clickbank, heard of Amazon but never knew the Associates program.

      If you check my older thread on clickbank sale, you'll see that I wrote a little bit about what I did. But it's so little what I did that it's not even worth writing.

      For the clickbank site details you can check my older thread.
      For the amazon site, it did take some research for keyword, it did take the hosting fee, the domain fee. And coach fee lol ( WSO bought on WF).

      But as I state in my old thread. For the clickbank site. I browsed the intrnet on clickbank affiliates, I followed the fact that I needed to pick a product, so I did. I made a free site on yolasite.com just to see if it worked.
      I put some affiliate links and banners on that site, with a few articles and posts that I rewrote. And put some comments on other blogs here and there (Backlinking). And all this doesn't add up to 1 week of work.

      For the Amazon site, it would be a whole different thing since this was seriously planned. It's a wso here on WF, I'm not sure I'm allowed to advertise so I won't say which.

      Hope this helps.

    IM can be funny.

    My first money was accidental. Many years ago I bought a program from Armand Morin, Directory Generator-- put up a whole bunch of sites on .info domains and made a killing because somehow the software had tapped into Google's algo and was getting me #1 rankings for a ton of words.

    Google caught on though. Soon enough. The rankings vanished. Every single one.

      That' interesting Philip.
      But I think we would both agree that that was spamming lol... And therefore it's not adding value to the World Wide Web.

      As many gurus here on WF say.
      1. Choose 1 plan and stick to it.
      2. Take action, read, take action, read.
      3. Always keep in mind that if you give, you'll be given back.
      Don't go for those routes that try to spam the WWW, but go for those routes that you agree in your heart that it's adding value to the web.

      For example I rewrote some articles in a readible, comprehensive way, and that was for me adding value. I added comments that were related both to the niche and to the post, therefore I added value.
      Doesn't require 1000 comments, I probably made less than 20 comments.
      Of course the more you make the more money probably, but you don't need 1000 comments to make a few bucks.

      The reason I put up this thread is both because I was happy to have made my first Amazon site, and also because many people seemed to post threads saying they want to give up.

      Hope this helps,
      Isac

    This is great to hear, I made my first Amazon sale my first week in IM but it was through hubpages.

    I have since not made any other affiliate sales and my niche site is very new, just starting to see some traffic trickle in. My amazon clicks are increasing everyday its just a matter of time and scale I believe.

    At the moment though I am concentrating my efforts more on article writing as that seems to be the way to bring in some cash.

    I am impressed that you have cottoned onto this particular bit so quickly - and I think it is the key to your success.

    If any newbies are reading this thread you will do well to print out these four "keys to success" and stick them somewhere near your computer!

        Isac,

        I only gave you the blueprint. You did all the work so give yourself the credit...Well done!

        Most people start strong but very few finish at all so if you can finish what you start then you're doing better than 90% out there!

        Keep us all posted on your progress!

    i have been doing im for 3 years now. my biggest mistake is branching off too soon, owning too many sites. sites cost money......
    1. pick something and stick with it and never give up.
    2. learn the business, do not rely soley on outsourcing
    3. mix online with offline advertising. (newspaper, magazines)
    best of luck to all of us. god bless

      Very true. Most newbies get so excited and try to do way too much. Focus on one site at a time. Once that one is making you money move on to the next. And I totally agree with #2. You should never soley rely on outsourcing.
