Back in 2000 I had started up a website to sell a couple of financial books and did all the so-called right things to market the site and the products. Ads, in Ezines, PPC, Articles, Forum Marketing, etc. But nothing ever came about.
Sure I tried other products over the years but never made a penny!
Then about 3 months ago I put up a video on youtube for a membership site and did some backlinking to the site over the course of 30 days and again nothing so I thought it was another failure. But this time I left up the video and didn't take the link down.
This past weekend I decided to check the stats of the membership/products site (they've added a few products) and in the affiliates stats page I noticed that I made a sale!
Boy was I shocked!!
Now if the sale sticks and next month I do get paid then I can offically say I am not a professional newbie.
