I've been a member here for around a year now and I used to read the "made my first sale" threads with pure envy.
Well, as of yesterday I've made my first proper sale.
I'd made money from Fiverr etc. but never from affiliate marketing, until two days ago.
It's nothing major I guess, but $18.99 commission was awesome. I just got a massive smile and feeling of delight inside when I read the email saying "you've made a sale" two days ago...
... and I got another one yesterday.
There are only two places where my affiliate links are. At the end of my free ebook and on the download page for the ebook. So, I know where they've come from... my extremely small list of 12 subscribers!!! Haha! And the first subscriber only joined my list three days ago, and I haven't really "tried" to drive any traffic yet.
Plus my squeeze page ain't all that special... check it out in my sig "Swift Product Creation" on the right.
I know there are always stories like this in here, but I just felt like I should post this for anyone who is really struggling and maybe thinking about giving up.
So, if you're that person... Please don't give up! Keep plugging away, it WILL happen for you!
I guess this is just a thank you to The Warriors and The Warrior Forum, from whom and where I've learned so much.
