I Did It First sale, and 5 in one day.

71 replies
Just woke up to check my Email and Amazon accounts,and I have 4 sales on Amazon plus I sold 1 ebook last night. My first real success, and I want to thank you the warriors on this forum for helping me achieve this small success. To me this means if I continue to work hard, and learn I can make it in the IM world. I still have so much work to do but I have more confidence now. So again Thank's Warriors

    Well done, Gonzo! Now scale it up and when you're comfortable with Amazon, start looking for second income stream. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

    It does not mean much maybe even a small fluke. But it sure is a confidence booster.

      It sure is. I got two sales on CB last week and it has given me the encouragement I need to continue

      Are you using free or paid for traffic

    It reminds me of my first sale of £67 on my first day of IM. I launched my dating site in the morning and by midnight I had that sale. It made me so much confident and enthusiastic that I am now overwhelmed about my success as Internet Marketer.

    Congratulations to you, keep up good work and keep rocking.

    This is the first advice i've been able to give on the warriors forum. So here it is.
    1. Social media build a good relationship.
    2.Every day I talk to my friends on twitter and facebook.
    3.Be honest offer to help after the sale.
    4. Take advantage of this Forum.
    The last one is very important!

  • Profile picture of the author mrinternational
    I bet the best feeling was not that you made the sale but the feeling that you accomplished by setting systems in place that work so good that once you set them you made money while you slept.

    Helps you realize that it is possible with a little hard work, and that IM is not just a pipe dream that only few can reach.

    Congratulations, to your success.

    Congrats, Gonzotrucker!

    You will find that nothing is more motivating than seeing daily sales coming in!

    Keep focusing on boosting your affiliate sales but make it a goal to carve out 1-2 hours a day to work on your own products and sales systems so that eventually others will start promoting your goods and services! That's when you'll see breakthroughs in your numbers!

    It's my Trucking site that made the sale. I just woke and spent over 1 hour on twitter talking to truckers, and helping them for free. I helped 2 drivers get better jobs for free today. But I had many more talking about how my site helped them. I talk and write like my customers do, and that helps. I made 3 more sales of my ebook today. I assure them I'm not just a writer sitting behind a desk. I'm a real trucker out here working along side them.


    I'm building a brand, and I still have a lot of work to do. But with time I will have a good earning website, and I can help my fellow truck drivers. I'm concentrating now on helping my customers, and not focued on the sale only.

      I like your site, I think this is a great idea for a niche. Have you found that interacting on twitter generates a lot of traffic?

    Yes twitter is most of my referral traffic. But they use twitter on their phone so they can't visit my site until they get home. I'm getting only 150 site visits a day but it's targeted traffic. I also spend some time offline at the truck stops talking to drivers about what I'm doing. I'm trying to change my industry by providing valuable information. I also promise to help after the sale within reason. I also ask my twitter followers what they would like to see on the site, and what would better help them achieve their goals.

      Hey Gonzo,

      Firstly, gratz You have all it takes to succeed. I can see it in your posts.

      Secondly, you can offer your visitors a different experience. If they use Twitter on smartphones, then you can make your sites mobile friendly. You don't have to change your whole design. There are countless plugins and themes that can help you.

      Cheers.

    Congratulations!

    I have to say though, don't let this be some sort of ultimatum. When I made my first sales sometimes I would just sit there and watch my account stats instead of continuing with my work, and within days my sales dropped back down to zero.

    Continue to strive to scale your work!

    Best,
    Matthew

    That is wonderful~ Now, instead of building more websites. You might want to:

    1. Add a valuable piece of content each day to the blog.
    2. Turn that article into a video and upload to Youtube
    and promote with social bookmarks.
    3. Take the article and submit it to Unique Article Wizard and
    link back to the one post you want to push backlinks to.

    Do this every day or once a week and you'll have an
    asset others will drool over!
