I've finally made money online !!

Hi Warriors

I just wanted to share my excitement with you all

I am very much a newbie (only been online a few months) but I'm learning fast, Thanks to my mentor Alex Jeffreys.

This month I have made my product from scratch in the Health/Diet niche, its the first time I have ever made a paid product, and I finished putting the framework together for my site yesterday...

Today I checked my email and saw that I had 2 PayPal payments All on auto pilot!!

Of course not saying it to brag - I'm very small fry - but I'm just really proud of that

I've worked so hard on my business with what Alex is teaching me and everything is starting to come together..

I actually now truly believe I will hit my goal of becoming a full time internet marketer by September (Hopefully earlier) and I'm loving every minute of it

Hope you don't mind me sharing that with you all

Just show's you can really do it by following a proven system

Thanks

Ryan

          Goldbear if you want it bad enough you will get there, I am by no means anything special and have got a ton to learn but..

          1) I'm following a proven system

          2) I'm taking action

          That's all I'm doing..

          If you put them 2 things into practice there's no way you can fail

    Hey SARahman

    No advertisement at all intended.

    I'm just really pumped today

    Alex is a fantastic mentor and I would recommend him to anyone, the system I'm following isn't his system, millions of people know it and I'm sure know it a million times better than me. I'm just a newbie.

    But I know I wouldn't be anywhere close to where I am today if it wasn't for him so just paying respect where its due.

    I would probably stuck buying loads of 'get rich quick' BS that I know a lot of newbie's fall into the trap of.

    Thankfully I have a good mentor and I'm on the right track

        Ryan,

        That is a nice looking site... I am actually spending some time having a look around and reading the articles on it lol It's obvious that you have spent quite a bit of time on it anyway - how long has it taken you to get to this stage? Did you do all of the work yourself, or outsource some of it?

        Also notice that you have quite a few shares on facebook, google+, etc... Are you finding that you get most of your traffic through social media, or search engines?

        Cheers,

        Max.

        PS - One suggestion... I think you had a free report offer pop-up when I first visited... I clicked it shut without thinking (habit), so I'm not sure if that's what it was? If so, perhaps you could also put it in a prominent position on your site, to make it easier for visitors to get on your list. I saw the optin box in the top corner, but it wasn't very appealing.

        You could even write an article talking it up (if you haven't already), or include a promo at the end of your other articles, so that people [like me ] are more aware of it.

    Another one enters the thunder dome! Congrats man. IMO there is no better feeling than knowing that one day soon you will be able to be the master of your own destiny, and that the life that people dream about and say does not exist, will be yours to party in!

    Well done and keep it up. You have conquered the hardest part, staying motivated enough to see some money come in. Now i can see in your post that you have caught the money bug

    all the best,

      Thanks again guys

      Max..

      The site in my signature box is just my blog - fatlosshaven, I will change it now to my sales page so you can have a look if you want. The blog is what I started out with the first month I started online in October. I didn't know a single thing so Alex told me to make a blog, so thats what I did.

      After I made my blog I promoted an affiliate product to the list I was building in november with a free 6 day ecourse i made, again because alex told me too and I made over $100 from a small list but I haven't got that money yet because you have to have 5 or more seperate cards buy on clickbank before you get a cheque or someting like that.

      So then in december i decided to make my own product with an upsell and a downsell like Alex recommended and it took me longer than i thought because I got a bit of shiny object syndrome because I found out about WSO's.

      After a couple of weeks I realised I wasn't focusing on my business because I was buying wso's and putting off the important.

      Alex got me back on track, I got an accountability partner and I have weekly calls with him to make sure were both on track.

      Finally I finished my product over the christmas period and in January I started to build the framework for my funnel.

      I started with the sales page for rapid-fat-loss-diet and went on to build an upsell page, downsell page, download pages and squeeze pages.

      Now I am working on putting video on my site to increase conversions before I can approach affiliates and i working on a killer A/R sequence to promote the low ticket offer for the people who download my freebie and to promote the upsell for people that don't buy it.

      I made the sales pages with optimize press myself but outsourced my blog on scriptlance for $80, I have a FANTASTIC outsource lady for customizing wordpress site. I'll be happy to share who it is if you want.

      If you have any other questions i'll be happy to help answer them

    Yup - it really does work. A big lesson for everyone reading that fools around with everything BUT digging in and creating their own products....creating products (done correctly with attention to market desire and sales activity) does really work.

    So many people complain about it being too much work or that they don't know how to write or that they have nothing to share, blah, blah, blah....it's all just excuses.

    Our core business has always been infoproducts - on occasion we have branched out into other areas including affiliate mraketing, amazon stores, adsense sites, site flipping, etc...and have made some ok pocket money but infoproducts always comes back as the one model that makes us the highest and most sustainable income.

    Great to see you GOT it early on.

    Jeff

      Thank Jeff,

      I couldn't agree more and I am very thankful I 'got' it early on. All thanks to Alex, I know with his help I will get to where I want to go.

      At the end of the day for anyone starting out online who's a newbie, like me, the fastest and easiest way to success online is following a proven system.

      AND

      taking action!

      All I have done is take small action steps daily and over time it builds up, you get more momentum and you start seeing little successes. Hopefully it won't be long until I start seeing big successes soon

    Hey ryanphillips,

    what is you traffic sources?
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[5494338].message }}
    • Profile picture of the author ryanphillips
      All I have done for traffic are blogposts that I submit to ezine articles, I have less than 10 at the minute.

      And the rest is all referal traffic from people that are using my system to drop fat. Because it works really good people refer others to the site.

      At the minute I have a $20 front end product with a $47 upsell and a $27 downsell.

      When my A/R sequence is set up right I'm going to get the EPC to $1 and offer affiliates 100% comissions on the front end and 50% on the upsell and downsell and have affiliates as my main traffic source.

      That the plan

      Then add a $97 upsell and a $37pm membership site.

      Then I will be making more than enough to quit my job and work online full time, I would love to help other people do the same when I'm at that stage.

      There my goals for the future

        It's great that so soon into your Internet Marketing journey, you have clear guidance and a clear plan for your business. These are things I wish I had known when I started. I have been doing this for a year and a half and have basically had to patch together all the knowledge of what works and what doesn't and I wouldn't call myself an expert yet by any means. It can be so frustrating and I'm so glad to see a newbie who didn't have to face all that frustration. Good job, Ryan!!!

    Super motivational thread Ryan, good for you! I am in the process of setting up something of my own that I plan on launching next month and I feel you when you mentioned the shiny object syndrome because I had that for awhile and in between that I tried my hand at affiliate marketing and CPA.

    It is so important to stay focused on one thing and MAKE IT WORK. If you've done the research and you know you are going into a profitable market, the only thing holding you back is YOU at that point.

    jbsmith is right about having your own product. No matter what having your OWN PRODUCT will always be the best way to make money. Nothing like building your own profitable asset where you are in total control instead having to deal with CPA offers that come and go and the risk of promoting crap products. Besides, Google loves business owners a lot more than Affiliate marketers that's for sure, so driving traffic is less of a hassle. I laugh at these IM's who tell you they are making more off of promoting other peoples stuff than having your own product and then offers to show you how for a price. Sounds like they are promoting THEIR PRODUCT to me!! lol

I by no means am an expert and only use my online income for my play money but it is an awsome feeling to get paid for basicaly doing nothing. Mine has been going on now for 2 years. I hope it lasts forever.

    • Profile picture of the author ryanphillips
      Thanks Norfolk i'll remember that.

      Mr international it took me 30 days to go from zero to profit.. I made my blog called fatlosshaven then I made a free product to giveaway to start building a list. At the end of the month I sent an affiliate promotion to the list and made sales. Only $127

      But I haven't go that money yet because I need more cards to buy from my clickbank account before they will send me the cheque.

      So in summary i would say from complete newbie...

      September - made my blog, made a free offer, started building my list, sent my first affiliate promotion

      October - started learning about about driving traffic and building my list.

      November - I got shiny object syndrome because learned about WSO's, brought a few and basically learned that I should focus on my next step to build my business and not all these shiny objects. Decided to make my first product.

      December - made my first product ($20)

      January - made the upsell and the downsell ($47 and $27) and got my plans for 2012 set. Made the copy and framework for my site.

      Today - 26th Jan - made my first real money online - $107 straight into my paypal account completely on autopilot!

      Thats how its gone for me so far hope that answers your question

    Congrates Ryan! Good story on using free report, listbuilding to product creation to make money Cool!

    Come 'on, you are not a newbie - newbies have shining object syndrome right from the start but yours happened only in Nov

    How did you convince yourself to stick to one method right off the bat?

      Thanks guys,

      Creativeflair - no the methods have no side effects what so ever. If they did I wouldn't make a product about it because I want to build a strong and ethical business, I don't want to trick people. And I have learned that you have to add massive value, I wouldn't be adding massive value if I was tricking people or if they were side effects. Hope that answers your question

      Bushidosurfer - I didn't really convince myself to stick to one method right off the bat, I just did what Alex said. Literally after his training I would mastermind with him and say "I've done this.. What should I do next week?" he would tell me and then I would just do what he said. I understand success leaves clues so I just knew to do what he said and I would be on the right path.

      Then one month I got distracted a lot trying out stuff with wso's I brought and I realised I'm not getting any further in building my business so I decided to stop everything and just focus on one thing.

      To stay focused I took Alex's advice which is:

      Plan tomorrow today - so I know exactly what I have to do tomorrow to move my business forward (hint it's NOT buying wso's, going on Facebook or spending loads of time in my inbox reading the tons of emails I get sent from other marketers)

      Have an accountability partner - I have a call with my accountability partner (Nick Farina) who is another one of Alex's students every Tuesday where we review the week and choose 3 things that we MUST do next week to move our business forward. And this 3 things are critical tasks that even if we do nothing all week apart from them 3 tasks we will be moving in the right direction.

      Hope that answers your question

    Yw6ad - I spend no money on marketing. The only marketing I've done is a blog post a week on my blog that I submit to ezine articles.

    My plan is too get the website converting well, to at least $1 EPC, then get affiliates promoting and driving traffic. I'm going to offer 100% commissions on the front end and 50% on the Upsell and downsell. Then after that I I'm going to work on a higher ticket Upsell an a membership site.

    I plan to offer 50% commissions on both of those too, I believe if a offer outstanding value in the product and pay my affiliates well I will in return get more success.

    Yano88 - the lady on scriptlance is called Antara but I believe her company name on scriptlance is visualmotion. She is awesome in customising Wordpress sites.

    She customised my blog. I made my sales page etc.

    Congratulations Ryan on your achievements. I tried to check the site out just now but it's going a bit slow.. maybe server glitches. But yes, it is good to see that you made some money especially starting off. Always great to read and always serves as inspiration to others such as myself who wants to try other niches to see how I'd fare at it as well.

    I know the feeling of making money online, albeit at a bit slower of a pace, but still felt good to make a couple grand this past 2011 with my two hip hop related sites. I'm going to try to rework them some more, SEO them a bit more, and make things more enticing for the buyers to get specials with their purchases, and see where it goes.

    Your story inspires me though on my next project which will be a different project altogether. So hopefully I'll be on the money train as well soon enough to where I can look at my Paypal and say "damn... now THAT is a career salary that was made from my own hard work, and I won't need a 9-5 anymore".

    Keep us updated on your sales and how things continue to go. Much success to you and God Bless!

    When I make a full time income in the Health / fitness niche I would love to help other newbies along the path just like I've been helped. I think it would be good for business and It would be so fulfilling seeing other people go from being a newbie to making money and then to quitting there job.

    Just like I hope to do soon

      Just wanted to give my 2 cents worth on Ryan. Ryan is actually my accountability partner as part of a coaching program we are both in which basically means, once a week I have a call with Ryan where we set tasks for the week and are accountibility partner.

      I can say in the last few months since I have been partnered with Ryan I have learnt how driven he is. I mean seriously driven, if he doesnt know how to do something, he'll find out or get someone to do it for him.

      The fact that he has created this product from scratch when a few short months ago he knew diddly squat about Internet Marketing is all the more impressive.

      My weekly calls with him has certain made me step up my game.

      I can say with complete confidence that Ryan is gonna absolutely SMASH it in 2012 within this niche.

      I think the lesson in here is that you will only have success, no matter how big or small, if you take action. Ryan has definitely proved that!

    Ryan, It's nice to see someone excited about a program that is working for them. I think some people have been burned a few times especially trying to start up and getting involved in the expensive internet marketing purchases. I think we all need to understand we all start out somewhere and have to build up. It's all extra pocket money in the beginning and then we build from there. I got suckered into the high priced ones, the web site ones, you name it.. I took a step back and went back to the basics with the measly $7 ones and found more success with those. Most people these days are willing to invest something small even though for some, that is an expense with todays budgets. I progressed into larger internet marketing skills, but just wanted to make my note that we all have to start at the beginning and be excited for each payment received. I wish you the best...

    Thanks guys,

    Great job, Ryan! I'm hoping to follow the same path, making money online selling products I've created... still in the learning stages for now though. Keep up the good work!
    - AlbertaPilot - You will definitely get where you want to go if you keep taking action.

    Small action steps each day over time will bring you the results and success your looking for

    Keeping you updated guys....

    The last couple of weeks I have:

    * Made a video and put a video on my upsell and downsell page to increase conversions
    * Made a free report to replace my old 6 day free ecourse on my blog
    * Made a 7 day A/R sequence to give value, great content (2 10 minute training videos) and promote my front end offer for the people who come on my prospect list from downloading the free report

    Now I am looking at doing 2 things in the next couple of weeks..

    (1) Get affiliates promoting as my offer is now converting at $1.30 EPC
    (2) Make a membership site and a A/R sequence promoting the membership site to my buyers list.

    Will let you guys know how I get on and will share everything on here just in case it helps anyone else out

    Congrats Ryan! Just goes to show the power of great coaching. I'm a newbie too and after reading lots of advice on this forum for several weeks, I've ascertained that the golden nuggets are - 1. get coaching and 2. start building your list as soon as possible. I just signed up with a coaching program yesterday so I'm really excited! :-)

    This is so motivational, Ryan.
    I checked out both your blog and your sales page and they both look amazing and professional. Your sales letters are VERY well written in my opinion.

    I just have three quick questions for you. What are your sources of traffic for your rapid fat loss diet site?
    Also, what is your site structure for the rapid fat loss diet? I'm guessing that once people pay for your product on PayPal, they are redirected to the upsell page? Or are they redirected to the downsell page? Or are they on the same page? I'm just wondering because I am considering setting up a site similar to your rapid fat loss diet site and it is clear that you have found a formula for a sales funnel that works.
    Finally, do you only build your list from your blog? (the rapid fat loss diet site only offers paid products, not anything free to build your list)?

    I also wanted to add that I've noticed that on your blog, you offer an incredible amount of free information that other diet systems would make people pay for. I feel like this has contributed greatly to your success. I feel like it makes readers trust you.

      Thank you. I'll answer your 3 questions as best I can below..

      (1) I just checked analytics and my traffic is coming from...

      * Facebook Traffic (viral)
      * Direct (I guess from customer's sharing the site with other people after they see results)
      * From my blog (fatlosshaven.com)

      - I am planning on getting all my traffic from affiliates and JV's moving forward -

      (2) I have a front end offer ($20) after a prospect buys they see an upsell ($47) and if they don't take that they see a downsell ($27)

      - I am planning on making a membership site moving forward. $1 7 day trial then $10 a month with content updated monthly -

      (3) I build a prospect list from the free report on my blog and I build a buyers list as customers have to opt in to receive the download link for the product via email.

      I have a 7 day A/R sequence promoting the front end for the prospects, I do this by giving away a lot of value as well as selling my front end.

      - I am planning on making another 7 day A/R sequence with the first 1-2 days educating the customers why they should buy the upsell and the following 5 days promoting the low tier membership site -

      Hope this answers your question

      PS Alex teaches me to give massive amounts of value away, thats why I try to do that on my blog.

        Hey everyone,

        I believe I have posted on this thread before but what brought me back onto this thread is the fact that Ryan's success is down to his mentor Alex Jeffreys.

        I find it kind of funny that when I originally posted on this thread it was simply congradulating Ryan on his success but now I'm back because I was browsing around the place to see if I could find other AJ students and then, BAM, I landed here again!!

        I recently purchased the wso Alex released for an INSANE $27!!

        Seriously, in the last 3 days I have watched around 17 hours of the videos in there, I'm addicted.

        I realise he originally charged $997 for the course but if I knew what I know now before I purchased I would have still purchased with a smile on my face. Like this ->

        I apologise for going slightly off the topic on this thread but I really feel that this thread will naturally attract all those who want to make money online and I whole heartily believe that if the wso is still available you MUST grab it.

        I can safely say I've learned more in 3 days than I have in the last 3 months.

        A note to all the skeptics, no I am not here to try and push the wso. Alex doesn't even know me, but once you have touched on his teachings it becomes overwhelmly obvious that genuinly trying to help others who need it is the best and most honest way to becomming a TRUE success online, not a scam artist millionaire!!

        Anyway I enjoyed the thread, I'm lucking forward to the rest of AJ's training and I wish you Ryan all the very best for 2012.

    This month I have made my product from scratch in the Health/Diet niche, its the first time I have ever made a paid product, and I finished putting the framework together for my site yesterday...

    Today I checked my email and saw that I had 2 PayPal payments All on auto pilot!!

    Of course not saying it to brag - I'm very small fry - but I'm just really proud of that

    I've worked so hard on my business with what Alex is teaching me and everything is starting to come together..

    I actually now truly believe I will hit my goal of becoming a full time internet marketer by September (Hopefully earlier) and I'm loving every minute of it

    Hope you don't mind me sharing that with you all

    Just show's you can really do it by following a proven system

    My next step (whilst waiting for clickbank to get to me) is going to be making an Affiliate Signup Page and an Affiliate Tools Page.

    Going to get on this tomorrow and then after those pages are set up I'm going to create the marketing material to make it super simple for JV's and affiliates to promote.

    I'm going to make:

    * Blog Posts
    * Articles
    * Email Swipes
    * Brandable Reports
    * Graphics
    * And anything else other sites in my niche provide to their affilates

    Then time to build an army of affiliates!

    Does anyone on here have offline businesses promote the as an affiliate? I have an idea of how I'm going to do it in the health / fitness niche but wondered if anyone has any success with it in the IM niche?

    so it's 1:34am and i've been reading this whole thread for ages ...and feel so proud of ryan's actions

    (1) because i've had the pleasure of watching him grow every week since he joined my coaching program and he's just someone who listens and gives it a go.

    (2) ryan seems to be inspiring so many others ... and that in my books is a blessing not to JUST see a student make money - but - to also help others in the process.

    way to go Ryan

    Surveyed my buyers list today so I can get an idea of what to put in the membership site I'm going to build and made a shortlist of keywords I'm going to use to start my adding affiliates to my affiliate spreadsheet.

    I'm going to get 100 on the list tomorrow then look at contacting them and outsourcing the first part of the process.

    Will be keeping everyone updated
