Thank you Warriors for my first ....

... money earned as a result of everything that I learnt from the Warrior Forum.

I have been so focused on learning everything about setting up and selling information products and I expected only to start earning money online next year.

This caught me completely by surprise. I was chatting with an acquaintance and explaining what I was doing. I showed her my websites, Facebook Fan Page, Twitter accounts and my mailing lists. She asked me how much I would charge to help her husband to setup a WP Blog, FB fan page and Twitter account.

I quoted them $360 (R2500 in South Africa).

They accepted!

Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. I know that I would not be in this position if it was not for the Warriors in this forum.

        Very cool, didn't know who created the banner.

        For that, I too "dub thee worthy" and agree karma can be a beautiful thing!

        Thanks Marianne,

        What is odd is that I never even thought of doing that. I was just focused on creating information products

        Guess life has a way of nudging you along a different track sometimes.

    That is awesome, and it's good to hear others have taken an interest in what you've worked hard to accomplish. There is definitely a huge market for those who take action and can create blogs and social sites.

    Meanwhile, that is a area I am still working on expanding my knowledge.

    Keep up the good work!

    May I humbly suggest that you change the tagline under your avatar to something like "Blossoming Entrepreneur" or "Flowering Entrepreneur" or "Full-Blown Entrepreneur"? Time to move forward from the "Budding" stage.

    Diana - you really earned that. After seeing your expertise with graphics on the Keep Ken Strong Fundraiser (she says while giving a shameless plug for the link in her signature), I can't imagine anyone not wanting you to build their site. You're extremely good. You just need exposure. Once people see how good you are - you will be trying to fit them into your schedule.

    Congratulations.

          Mah, I find that limiting my daily spread of goodwill and cheer usually leaves with plenty of thanks in reserve.

          ...especially after reading some of the threads started.

          Maybe we can have a carry over system for unused thanks?

      Hi Diana,

      I can imagine your situation. You are so happy as a lark. People tend to think in this time, to be able to walk a half feet above ground. I know, I'm such kind of people, too. LOL

      You deserved that success, as I can see your activity.

      I can only say that you'll experience many of these feelings in the future, if you'll be persistent. Deliver what you promise, or a little more. People will be grateful when you hear their voices, give them what they are asking for, and care about them.

      I wish you many successes,

    Hi Psst,

    It's a good question, which I answered in the first post . I am a complete newbie... well maybe not so 'newbie' anymore.

    When I joined the forum in July, I knew NOTHING. I had to learn basic web design, how to setup a mail responder, how to start building a list, how to write a squeeze/optin page (did not even know what sales copy was), how to setup Wordpress and the list goes on and on.

    I had to do all of that at night, with just three hours a day.

    I joined on the 24th of July. It's now the 5th of November. That's just over 3 months. It's better than I expected

    My first information product will be launched in December. That's 4 and a bit months. I'd say that was pretty good going

    That was the long answer to your question The short answer is "Yes", it's the first money I have earned online using the Internet Marketing skills I have learnt here.

    P.S. Can you change your user name please? I have to keep wiping my screen clean when I try and say it

    Di

      I've been into IM for over 2 years but haven't had too much success. And you are only 3 months into IM and you are having much success in this short period of time. You are a great action taker and I admire you for being that. At this pace, I have no doubt that you will be a big success very soon.

      And thanks for answering my question and pointing out that you already have answered my question. But you talked only about your expectations on your first post. You didn't say anything about the reality

        I don't think there's any major secret to it Psst. The guys that are successful on the forum are always telling us newbies the same thing - "Focus" and "Take Action". That's all I did, but I still have a very long way to go.

    Hey Diana,

    congratulations and keep up the good work. Now that the first step is done, remember to approach this in a professional manner, including:

    - offer excellent after-sales service (to keep the door open for further upsells)
    - Always think about scaling things!
    - show your customers what else they might include what they did not think of yet
    - most important: help them grow THEIR business! If you can do that, they'll be happy to come back at any time.

    Cheers,
    Rob
