    Congratulations lazavas!

    It's always nice to find money coming in unexpectedly and what a great way to start a new year.

    I hope you have a whole load more surprises like this through the rest of 2009.

    thanks guys, it is definetely a great feeling, especially when i didnt expect it

    to answer ur questions i did it with cpa, and it wasnt blackhat either

    funny thing is i only discovered cpa about a week or so ago so to make some money so quick was brilliant, i am now working on making some more, very exciting stuff

    my goal though is to continue with affiliate marketing

    CPA = cost per aquistion. Means you get paid a lot of money up front for making one sale, usually because it is recurring income or the seller has the option to 'upsell' a bunch of items. I.e., maybe they give you 100% profits (or more), but then sell 5-6 other products to the same customer, so it is worth it to them.

    That's wonderful, laz! Here's to hoping you get more of those conversions from here on out. Nothing like a surprise conversion for a little inspiration.

    greatttttttttt!!! I am happy for you. I remember when I made my first sale. It is usually a good feeling but don't retire yet. It is not yet celebration time as the second sale may be hard to come just as mine has been hard. I am yet to make my second sale even after 2 months of making my first sale.

    Hi Lazavas,

    Congratulations!

    Now check where did you make
    that sale.

    You can now duplicate what works
    for you and you can earn many
    more $21!

    Happy new year!

    Cheers,

    Really great to hear that lasavas. I remember how happy I feel when I made my first sale couples of years ago. My suggestion is just replicate all the steps that are proven to work, as John suggested above, so that you can leverage your online earnings in the future. Anyway, great job and well done!

    Awesome job. I'm still working towards my first sale.

    Nice to hear about something successful. After reading so much about other people I sometimes wonder if it's possible for me. Thanks for posting.

          hahahhaahha, well what happened was, i was playing xbox and i couldnt stop thinking of how to make some money with this cpa network i joined few days ago, so i switched off the xbox, went to my computer and logged into my account, and there it was, i was in shock! i was sure it was a mistake, then i checked the stats and there it was! unbelievable feeling, and yes there was a little bit of a jig! hahhahaah

          u were one of the people i thanked in my original post but for some reason it didnt come up

          affiliate marketing is what i want to do long term, but cpa was something i only just discovered and i took an interest in it, i want to be able to make enough to pay some way overdue bills! hahhaah

          dude can i ask a big favour? can u pm me the bootcamp url as i have had to change computers because of a virus, if u can do that for me that would be excellent!

    The first dollar is the hardest and most gratifying one you'll ever make. I've seen many books that state now that you know how to make a dollar simply do it a million times a year. Good luck and I wish you continues success.

    Now what you want to do is track where the traffic/sale came from and replicate it as hard as you can.

    More sales is even cooler!

    good luck!
