Back in the day i started making websites for people and article writing.

This was years and years ago.

I then re-invested that money into my own websites. I spent most of it on links and then scaled up from there.

There is no substitute for hard work. Its very much possible to get started from scratch and earn good money in this industry. You just need to do what other people are not willing to do. Work hard.

The money I have and continue to accrue online is not made easily, but it is made. I started out getting 8 dollars an article as a content writer for someone who promoted a system that MLM and Network Marketers were able to use for lead conversion, sales etc. It was time consuming but fulfilling, and I still employ the same tactics when writing today, but I have been able to learn skills that that make it a lot more profitable, and less time consuming. It truly is a blessing to be able to work from a home office.

My third website sold for $120+ and I was very excited.

Later I was selling websites for way, way more.

I quit my job.

It was interesting to come back to the store about 3 years later and see those same mean, backstabbing, butt-kissing, fake-smiling workers still scanning at cash registers.

Right now I make good living working online from Alabama.

Where did you sell those websites dude? apart from flippa?

sorry to pry

I bought 10K opt in leads at a time and imported them into the List Warrior autoresponder Allen owned here at the forum. I then mailed out ways to make money offers. I sold a lot of Rosalind Gardner's "Super Affiliate Handbook" as well as was earning over $500 a month with SFI after a couple of months.

Re: How did you make your first $100 to $1000 Online
 
The first 100$ I made was from a content farm called The Content Authority. After writing articles on that website for a year or two I figured I could cut out the middleman and find clients directly which is exactly what I did. I just posted a thread in the Warriors for Hire section of this forum and have been writing like crazy ever since. I also made like 8$ from Adsense on my blog. I want to start working on building a email list but I'm not sure which niche to target yet.

Re: How did you make your first $100 to $1000 Online
 
First came a few solos ads once I was able to get about 50 clicks an email I started freebie swapping and I promoted Clickbank products. That was 3 years ago and I made a lot more then a $1,000 doing that. To this day I have never joined safe-swaps. Just strictly Skype Channels.

And of course since then I have started using other methods to build my list :)

Re: How did you make your first $100 to $1000 Online
 
In 1996, I wrote and sold a recipe ebook. I called it an "electronic book" because back then I'd never heard of an "ebook".

I wrote it on free Notepad and sold it via a free-hosted website. Customers used to email or fax me their credit card details, or send me checks in the mail. :)

My office wasn't far from my bed and sometimes the fax used to wake me in the middle of the night as an order came in.

Eventually, I made the recipes free, turning the recipe book into web pages and earning money from AdSense and affiliate commissions, which was much less work.

In the early days I kept experimenting and learning one little skill at a time. If you're determined enough and persistent enough, you'll get where you want to go..

My first hundred was from writing articles promoting clickbank offers. I submitted them to ezinearticles and link them straight to product's sales page. My first $1000 is when I start my product creation business and selling WSOs.

Selling my own ebook product. Later I added some video, upped the price and made my first thousand. Then it was my first ten thousand.

But you're right: nothing is ever going to beat the sheer rush of seeing that first $19.97 sale come through.

I built a semi-authority website with about 100 pages on the topic of a certain health niche. I put up Adsense and eventually started selling a $20 ebook on it as well.

I built the site something like 3 or 4 years ago, and it still makes me a few hundred $$$ a month without me doing any work except renewing the domain and hosting, so I guess it was a good strategy. :)

Re: How did you make your first $100 to $1000 Online
 
Definitely, NOT buy doing affiliate marketing or adsense.

My first $1,000 came from what I am doing on my blog now....

And believe me, I've bought every guru gimmick you can think of.
I created tons of wordpress sites.
I bought WP themes, plugins you name it.

I tried Amazon and clickbank.

Apparently, it's not for me.
So, I found something else....

bbjumpman 8th February 2013 01:54 PM

Re: How did you make your first $100 to $1000 Online
 
I made my first $100 back in 2003 when I was in undergrad. It was a website that helped people learn step by step how to build their own personal computer. I had affiliate links to Tiger Direct and recommended various hardware. It was an awesome site and I wish I kept it up between undergrad and grad school! Great domain name and good amount of traffic. Call me young and naive at the time I suppose.

After that I blogged religiously about jewelry online and helped connect people with good deals on where to buy. That's when I started making in the $1,000. I've added in other niches since then and I work primarily as an affiliate.

Best of luck with your first $100!

Jason Kanigan 8th February 2013 02:00 PM

Re: How did you make your first $100 to $1000 Online
 
I made a sales training video package and sold it on my site. Linked through from my sig to there. Did this before I made WSOs and it made me several hundred dollars at $20 a pop in a couple months.

Then I offered a coaching call WSO to test the market, and the response was fantastic. At $27 to find out if it would work it was a little crazy, but I made a couple thousand bucks with it in a month...talking from morning until night. It was then that I realized I had to make a recorded version so that I could multiply myself and reach more people. Trading dollars for hours won't make a person rich.

How Did You Make Your First $1,000 Online Warriors? Here's What I did!
 
I remember like it was yesterday! My, then girlfriend, got kicked out of her parents house. I was 22 and it was my 2nd round at my parents house and they had given me a deadline to be out.

I had no job and a little money. I turned to ebay, made just close to a grand my first few days and been hooked on marketing online ever since!

I just started this thread to hear some of the other warriors stories and let some of the new people know this is very possible with the right mindset and action attitude!

Well, you r turn warriors... How did you do it?

I still haven't made my first $1k online yet, but I'm working towards it. Hopefully it doesn't take too long for me to get there.

Just curious, what did you sell on eBay that made you the $1k? I've heard that a ton of eBay sellers abandoned them because of their stupid rules and started selling elsewhere. Have you moved on, or do you still sell with them?

Congrats on your success by the way, and here's to hoping that you have many more successes in the future. :)

Hey thanks a lot man! Honestly I did that in 2006. I have since moved on. I would not even advise you on ebay today! They really have changed a whole lot over the years.

Now I look to them to buy some of the things I want personally.

I have moved on to more advanced marketing strategies now.

What types of activities do you participate in, in regards to making money online? How long you been at it?

Ahh I remember as it was yesterday, first money I made online was $5 from Fiverr. I was the happiest guy ever, even thought $5 is not much but the fact I made money online was intriguing. My first $1,000 was a SEO Campaign my very first client years ago. Great feeling!

Awesome man! I totally relate! I used the money I made then to get our first apartment together! My girlfriend then is my wife now! Great feeling indeed!

Yes you are right! Even if your first money made is $1.00. You still made money, now you just have to duplicate as many times as you need to, to reach your idea of success!

That's what I would tell anyone trying to make it.. :D

My first 1K was by plain ol' affiliate marketing. There used to be a hell lot of offers to promote and some PPC was all that was required. Gosh! Good days back then...

Re: How Did You Make Your First $1,000 Online Warriors? Here's What I did!
 
My first $1000 online was on eBay, way back when in 1998. Selling used paperback books. My focus is off eBay now, but I still keep a good listing of my training titles up on eBay. Brings in several thousand a month, aside from shipping it is pretty much on auto-pilot. If worked right eBay can be a good market. I have made almost 3/4 of a Mil. on eBay over the years.
What works now for me? Amazon is going great. My web sites bring in good sales. But number 1 technique is still email marketing of my own products.

my first incone came from software I developed for a large company. I showed them how I could automate a complex process and they couldn't refuse.

That is when years of learning programming and development paid off.

Re: How Did You Make Your First $1,000 Online Warriors? Here's What I did!
 
Dear Fellow Warriors,

I started with Affiliate Marketing and achieve a little success with ClickBank and Article Marketing.

The real money came when I made my first $2000 US Dollars Grand online via selling brand new niche websites on Flippa.

Thereafter, I continue to build brand new niche sites with only 1 hour of work per website and each website I sell for US$500. I also build authority sites and let the sites matured and managed to sell off some of my established niche sites at $3000 each and more.

With this website flipping model alone, I generate a comfortable online income of $5000 to $10,000 per month just by listing and selling niche sites on Flippa alone. And the rest is history whereby I have since crossed over $100,000 grand online in my 3 years with Flippa.

Nonetheless, I have stopped selling on Flippa and I have turned to building a Real Online Business with my own Authority Niche Websites and list building.

Promote and Prosper!
Anson

I made my first $1000 online selling articles on Fiverr. Definitely not the best way, but still pretty cool. Since then I've moved on, made a few thousands with Adsense and a few other thousands selling WSOs here on the forums. I've yet to have one of those big launches that gets hundreds of affiliates on board and generates $10,000 within 24 hours, but I am working hard to get there.
