7 Week old blog - $2265.40 profit

95 replies
Hey peeps

To me this is amazing ! My blog... The first ever blog I created finally makes me an online income !!

Its such a turning point for me, I think I finally get 'it'

To anyone reading this that has not yet made money online or is wondering how its done let me tell you from my last 7 weeks experience what I think has made it happen...

Ok, well I stopped chasing money online

I stopped trying to sell 'anything and everything' in fact I forgot about making money at all. Although this was a hard thing to get my head around but I was told to forget the money as that will follow eventually.

It actually followed a lot quicker than I expected it to !

So what did I do ???

Well I built a blog, as my first post I introduced myself and stated on there the situation I was currently in and where I wanted to be.

I then went on in the following posts to tell people how I was building my blog and telling every step I made in my online business ( Including the errors ! )

My traffic has gone from strength to strength and yesterday hit the best day of 430 visitors.

I did my first affiliate promotion about 3 weeks ago for Alex Jeffrey's coaching program and made a profit of $1729 in 8 days... Wow money can really be made online huh ?! I couldnt believe it

Now in the first 11 days of December I have made $525 as well as $11.40 recurring monthly commission.

I have now leveraged my last 7 weeks to create my first ever ebook... The blog setup guide !!

This is free on my blog for all to use

I suppose I want to tell this as encouragement to others and incase you are the path that I spent so long on heading in the wrong direction.

Stop buying into products and fads and start to build a life long business !!

Best of luck, thankyou for letting me share this

Dean

    AMAZING

    Congrats

    Just keep it up... Andf here's a tip for all the warriors thinking about initiating a blog...

    if your blog is more like a news platform for what you have been learning/implementing, suceeding at or failing at... ASnd can be related to subject matter in your niche, it's bound to make money for you... And its much easier to write a post this way...

    Nice work Dean. I think you struck a chord with your readers by telling your personal story. That is something that many can relate to. Building rapport with your blog readers helped you generate a nice conversion rate. Let's not forget the fact that you chose an affiliate program that was already high converting.

    Keep it up. There is a reason why you were successful. Just keep doing what you've been doing.

    Awesome Dean, you are starting STRONG.

    One thing I learned over my years in business (off and online) is that you need to keep the MOMENTUM. I don't really know why, but keeping the momentum is really important.

    Incredible! I've seen the same pattern where you promote information
    about how to make money using X by using X. This strategy is a sure winner.

    For example, you blog about making money using blog by making money
    using blog. I've seen the same thing with social networks where the
    most popular pages are about the network itself.

    Now I need to go write a product on how to use the Warrior Forum
    to make money and sell to the Warriors.

You still have to put a spin on your content for SEO and good marketing practice, but you have be real and just blog about what is real to you and what people could learn from.

    I am almost envious of your success. I also spent my first two years loosing money with all the hype and buying all the useless e-books and gimmicks.
    About a year ago I completely gave up on internet marketing loosing my shirt and no income from any endeavor. Being a retired postal worker with a very small pension and limited budget, in desperation started my first blog about 10 days ago.
    I'm praying that all my mistakes may help me know. After reading your post Dean, I'm pretty sure I 'll have to revamp my blog as it has a bunch of affiliate links and images. I could use a critic from someone who is making it work if you have a chance to vist the blog. I would appreciate any suggestions. I'm not sure my blog is a blog or just another website.

    I'm heading over to your site now to hopefully get some fresh ideas.
    Thanks for your info

    I have a question, how did you manage to get 1500+ visitors in 15 days? What means of marketing do you use?

    Thanks again, very motivational.

    Hey ya'll

    To answer some questions... I have done a few things, not only have I aligned myself with a top marketer ( Alex Jeffreys ) I literally have just spread over the net everywhere I can.

    Forums and other targeted blogs has been my thing really, It seems many have gone through the same process as me and can relate to what I am doing

    Its a great feeling ya know ?! It just drives me even more to see the impact I am having on people

    In fact earlier I got a ping back to my blog so went to check it out what the site was... The subject of the post was ..

    Dean Holland changed my life !!!

    I mean.. WHAT !! Wow.. What a compliment.. I just couldnt believe my eyes..

    The guy that wrote this - Stephen Bray just got my ebook and with it built his own blog.. In his words it made it simple !

    Sorry dont mean to go on but thats just the biggest business compliment and acheivement I could get

    Thankyou to you all

    Hi Dean,
    That's awesome that you've been able to make an impact in someone else's life.

    The amount of comments you get for a blog that's only 7 weeks old is something that I strive for! So you have only utilized free forms of marketing? Commenting on other blogs and making forum posts?

        I am very excited for you that is great work.

        I think our business is going to be strong in 2009 as people all around the world look for additional income opportunities.

        I need to learn more about blogging so I will visit your site.

        Maybe you should think about running a W.S.O about the steps you have taken to achieve a profit so early.

        I am running a W.S.O at the moment and the feedback you get is worth more then the money.

One being making money in the offline niche and I just want to give great content and hope to help as many people as possible. Making money isn't my main goal. I do have a product but I am just dedicated to giving great advice, tips and content.

    Hopefully then I can build followers and help as many people with this niche as I can,

    And tonight, I found your post. Amazing.

    My blog is also very successful. It contains helpful/useful information that visitors will find of interest.

    I too write my posts in a teaching sort of way so that visitors are actually learning something new each time they check my new posts.

    I reveal free software, free information and lot's of info from my personal experiences online.

    A blog is a great way to build lists and promote your own products - which is what I do.

      Congratulations. It's wonderful to hear about your success, and newcomers could learn a lot from the steps laid out in the initial post. If you're not willing to take some action, have a little bit of willpower to make your goals a realization, and try your best without the fear of failure, you're going to have a very hard time trying to make a success of internet marketing. Realistic goals need to be set, and then can be met and dealt with much easier than extremely difficult goals that you know will take you years to accomplish. A lot of posters seem to get a certain inspiration from seeing others' success, and I'm no exception. Keep on keeping on.

      Congratulations to you!!! It's great to hear of your success and others for that's what keeps us determined. I have a simple question but to me it's not quite clear - when you say you promote your affiliate products on your blog can you explain exactly what you do?
      I've read that article marketing is the thing to do if you're on a budge (i am) but when promoting affiliate products, would you use a blog vs. a static site?

    The only thing too watch out for when blogging about I.M. is that A) you are not an expert yet as you do already claim on the blog so watch out not to get carried away. and B) always remember that people come to blogs to get FREE info. So dont get blood thirsty now that you have made some money and begin shooting affiliate links everywhere ok. Im no expert in blogging but i have had a bunch of experience doing it before.

    Cheers and good luck. Ill follow your journey on the blog.

    Nice job. You could probably look over the WP theme and make it look more professional. You know, there are lots of free themes out there. They way the sidebar displays in Firefox (which is what all sensible people use nowadays) is a problem.

    As for me, I took a WP default ugly-greenish theme and reworked it myself in a blog of mine:
    A1 Photo Tips | Photography Tips For Better Pictures

    - which is a little hobby project of mine.

    At this moment I have nothing to lose and everything to gain, I've read hundreds of success stories, who all seem to point out how easy their "systems" are and how anybody can do it, I started a blog "Switch To Digital" and pinged it everytime I've updated it, could someone help me with what else I can do, I'm missing something or/and doing something wrong, is my niche wrong, I'm really confused, and beginning to think I should give up, what's the big secret please.

    I've also got hold of a copy of "On Demand Profit" and tried lots of different posts, but still nothing.

      GIVE UP !!! ???! ?!

      WHAT ?

      No way... unless you dont want it enough bro ?

      No it is not simple... it is easy tho ! ... What I mean by this is that it take sooo much work to make it happen

      The work you have to actually put in though is simple it just takes so much of it

      Let us know what it is you are trying, visit my blog and see what Ive done so far...

      Grab my free book and get it setup properly, whilst you dont host your own blog you are limiting yourself in your business

      Good luck

    davemclean: Hmmm, I think you should get your own domain rather than using Blogspot. Also there is a course by Yaro Starak on blogging which may be of interest to you (just Google for him).

    To me this is amazing ! My blog... The first ever blog I created finally makes me an online income !!

    Its such a turning point for me, I think I finally get 'it'

    To anyone reading this that has not yet made money online or is wondering how its done let me tell you from my last 7 weeks experience what I think has made it happen...

    Ok, well I stopped chasing money online

    I stopped trying to sell 'anything and everything' in fact I forgot about making money at all. Although this was a hard thing to get my head around but I was told to forget the money as that will follow eventually.

    It actually followed a lot quicker than I expected it to !

    So what did I do ???

    Well I built a blog, as my first post I introduced myself and stated on there the situation I was currently in and where I wanted to be.

    I then went on in the following posts to tell people how I was building my blog and telling every step I made in my online business ( Including the errors ! )

    My traffic has gone from strength to strength and yesterday hit the best day of 430 visitors.

    I did my first affiliate promotion about 3 weeks ago for Alex Jeffrey's coaching program and made a profit of $1729 in 8 days... Wow money can really be made online huh ?! I couldnt believe it

    Now in the first 11 days of December I have made $525 as well as $11.40 recurring monthly commission.

    I have now leveraged my last 7 weeks to create my first ever ebook... The blog setup guide !!

    This is free on my blog for all to use

    I suppose I want to tell this as encouragement to others and incase you are the path that I spent so long on heading in the wrong direction.

    Stop buying into products and fads and start to build a life long business !!

    Best of luck, thankyou for letting me share this

    Hi Dean,
    I heard about you from Alex and I visited your blog. I did a similar thing, and put up my blog just after you. I even installed Google Analytic ahead of the herd. To date I have zero visitor! Worse to come, I was offering the same eBook as everyone else. I have about 65 subcribers, not a single conversion, someone there have 5 subscribers and 1 conversion. I am plodding on, but I have to think some one upstairs doesn't like me.

      Hey John

      Are you a student of Alex's ??

      Dont beat yourself up bro !! Man you have about 50 subscribers more than I do for the list building platform if thats what you are talking about ??

      I havent made any sales for that yet either so dont panic, just stay positive and keep taking action

      you sound like you may give up ! That worries me bro Come on, you can do this !!

    Hello Dean. You really had a right mindset. Action first, money later.
    You know, when I was 17 years old, I was drawing cars at home like crazy, from day to night. I was not thinking about the money at all. But finally my actions started to bring in cash, though I didn't even think about it.

    Great story
    I too get to focused on what and how can i sell something
    Sometimes we have to step back and realize we are giving information not selling and when the visitors feel that is our intention they will then buy !
    great advice.

    Truly inspiring! I've seen the same straegies where you can promote information about how to make money using a certain product by using another certain product. This works particularly well as a strategy and is most effective for MLM and internet marketing.
    As an example, you can blog about making money by using money making blog! I've seen the same thing with social networks where the most popular pages are about the network itself. Hope this helps!
