What's Working for You? - Success Stories Please!

9 replies
Hey Warriors,

It's been 3 years now that I have been in the internet marketing game and although there were some ups and downs (still are) I think it has been a pretty successful journey.

When I first started out, I created a niche websites selling Clickbank products which is still doing for well for me these days. I then branched out into autoblogging and set up over 200 sites, selling anything and everything through Ebay (EPN).

Just recentely I turned my focus to my offline consulting business offering online services to small and medium sized offline companies.

That being said ... What have you done or are doing that is successful?

I know it can be a grind sometimes, but hearing from others that are having success can keep a lot of us going : )

Looking forward to hearing from you all and what's working or not working.

Shawn

    Well for me, after a setback in another career, I got back up and succeeded
    through passion, focus, ability to network and develop relationships, and
    finally Mobile Marketing. It changed my life.

      That's great Mary ... Are you using mobile marketing as an affiliate or selling the services to offline clients?

        After failing miserably with affiliate marketing, not without a year and a half of tremendous effort, I went back to doing what I do best. Web design and development. The year and a half of failure is paying off big now. I am having great success marketing local businesses.

        What didn't work in the hyper competitive niches I was going after is totally different in the local arena. It's more than easy to dominate 3-7 spots on Google. My clients treat me like I'm some sort of magician dabbling in the black arts.

        With a background in web development I can build the site correctly from the beginning and handle all the marketing in-house. Well...minus a little outsourcing for the marketing.

    Here's what works for me..

    Creating info products that help my customers improve some area of their lives, the stuff that I know enough about to teach others.

    Not going into the niches here, but creating products about things that I enjoy doing.. and would be doing regardless of the financial gain, is what it's all about to me.
