I've finally made money online !!

39 replies
Hi warriors

I just wanted to share my excitement with you all

About 5 weeks ago I started my own blog after attending an internet marketing seminar for the first time

The blog is coming on very well ( in my opinion ) and is gathering followers daily.... In fact i'll say this with a big grin on my face .. Im hitting between 140 - 320 visits a day right now

Sorry not bragging im just proud of that ... So my other big news ...

I finally made sales as an affiliate too Using my blog I promoted a coaching program in 8 days made over $1700 profit !!

I just cant believe it, finally after trying so long it proves money can be made online..

But I have work SOOO hard to build my business, so dont think it was done easily. Many hours were put it but Im loving every minute of it

Hope you dont mind me sharing that with you all

Just shows anyone really can do it ( I used to think that was just something the 'gurus' said )

Thanks

Dean

    Mind you sharing? Not at all. I especially love successes that say, they are making money, but it wasn't instantaneous riches.

    That's some blog following. You must be actually providing some decent content if they keep coming back! Congrats!

      There is no better feeling once you COME TO THE REALIZATION YOU CAN DO IT AND IT ACTUALLY WORKS! That is the biggest hurdle IMO.

      Congrats on your success!

    Way To Go, Dean!

    Thanks for sharing your success with us. We all need to hear news like this. It keeps us motivated.

    A couple thing, though. None of my business, really, but these will help you more than you realize.

    1. Find a high interest rate "savings account" and always take 10% of whatever you earn and deposit it. This is a painless and quick way to get an emergency fund established for yourself.

    (with $1,700 already made, that's $170 that you pay to yourself, first)

    2. I looked at your blog page. You don't have anything set up to capture your visitor's contact information. With 140-320 visitors per day, you are leaving alot of money on the table! People are following you because of the making money niche. So offer a free report for their contact info, then send weekly e-mails to them with "secret" info that you are not sharing with the regular blog visitors. Find an affiliate program that is good and on topic with the group and "mention it" once every 4 emails. That way you are giving good content and are only "occasionally" mentioning a program that will be of use to your reader, if they are looking to buy. No one will feel you are overdueing it at that rate.

    Let's do some math. We will take the low conservative numbers.

    If you get 140 visitors a day, that's 4,200 per month. Now, if only 2% joined your list (very conservative figure), that would be 84 people per month, or 1,008 a year that would be added to your list.

    If you "talk it up" and tell your readers that you will be sharing info with the list that your regular readers won't have access to, you can get much better results than listed above.

    Still staying conservative, let's go with a 5% conversion rate...

    140 visitors X 30 day month = 4,200 X 5% = 210 X 12 months = 2,520 person per year mailing list!

    230 visitors a day is your average. With those figures you'd have

    230 x 30 = 6,900 x 12 = 82,800 x 5% = 4,140 person mailing list per year...You get the point.

    Keep it up, buddy! And thanks again for inspiring us all.

    Great news Dean from a fellow UK warrior.

    How many of those daily 140 - 320 visitors are you capturing into your list ?
    With numbers like that, if you are capturing a good portion of them, will mean you should EASILY be able to continue with your success and build on it pretty quickly

    This month I am up to just over £500 (which would prob be about equivalent to around $750) so a way to go before I reach your level. Another difference is one sale for £199 was for products on my www.wobbleg.com site which is a physical product so not as much profit in it as your earnings.

      That first amount of money you make online is the best! Especially the first $1,000! Thanks for sharing and congratulations! Also, way to take action after the seminar! I am always amazed what starts to happen when one takes action on things they have learned. Great work!

    The biggest lesson? ACTION= PROFITS.

    Without getting the first site online nothing happens.

    As Einstein said: "Nothing happens until something moves".

    Glad you shared your story with us!

    Regards to ye all.

    PS: A site without a good message won't make it either!

    Hi all

    Thankyou for your welcoming words !!

    One of you nailed it on the head... How have I done it ???

    ACTION ACTION ACTION

    That honestly is it, I have gone from hype product to hype product for over a year getting no where. I used to think buying that crap was being productive.. LOL !

    Hell no it wasnt, I now know that and I am turning things round for myself.

    So what am I doing different ?... I am building a business !

    That is key, if you are new like myself but are still stuck in what i will call the 'newbie trap' of buying into the hype products STOP NOW

    Start building a business, Im sure you will all agree with me here, if you are serious about working online full time then you have to treat this as a business, thats what this is.. BIG business

    I would say get yourself a blog up online ! Go see what I have done with mine starting from the very first post

    It really is so simple when you actually put an action plan of goals down and take daily action to achieve them.

    It is simple but it is not easy.. Do you understand what I mean ?

    It is simple to do but there is a lot of hard work involved and long hours to get it going

    Thankyou for your encouragement, and you are right.. I am so thirsty for more now.. Its gunna come

    Dean,

    Inspiring stuff indeed ... and you make such a good point ...

    a lot of beginners in IM/AM spend a lot of time researching ... but really, the best way to learn is often by doing ... and back up what you do with a little research ... this is even more crucial because what worked for someone else may not work for you, so finding your own success factors is crucial.

    Congratulations!

    Wanna know how to make even more money?
    Step 1 = Repeat the process in a new market
    Step 2 = Document your progress, results and action steps
    Step 3 = Sell your "documents" as a WSO
    Step 4 = Make lots more money to outsource ANOTHER project in ANOTHER market.
    Step 5 = Repeat steps above
    Step 6 = Retire or build out

    See you in "the club" ;-)

    That's pretty amazing isn't it? I remember when I made my first sale. I was on top of the world! But of course it didn't last too long because I wasn't doing more of the right stuff. Congrats to you!
