I just made my first sale today after 3 months of setting up a site. It's $38.50. Not much, but it truly inspires me to know that it does happen. Going to keep at it. Hopefully one day I can wake up with a dozen sales per day. All it takes is lots of learning, hard work, time and dedication.

    Congratulations to you with the sale! Now you need to see how you got that sale. If it's your product, you can always inquire with your customer as to how they found you. If it's not though you'll need to work on some tracking options to find out how you made the sale. Was it your own product or an affiliate product (either Clickbank, Amazon, etc)

    Either way though, it's always a great feeling to make a sale altogether, but especially that first sale! Let that sale inspire and motivate you to push for more and more sales! It can be done, just takes learning, work, time, and dedication as you mentioned, along with faith and a nice cup of java to keep you up while working hard at it. lol. Best of continued success to you!

        Congratulations

        After the first sale has happened it's a lot easier because then you know it is possible to make money online. When you know it's possible you'll be a lot more motivated to keep going and do things that consistently make money.

    I can still remember the very 1st sale I made on one of my sites. I was so Happy I wrote the customer back and told them I would not cash their check. It's FREE. My check was not even a 1/4 of what yours was. Now you know it works and now you can make much more. When I started, my Mom would buy stuff from my sites just to show support. I was always trying to find someone who did not know me and still wanted something I had to offer. This is great news. Keep up the good work!

    by the way... I have never made another sale to anyone but my MOM. You should keep your hopes up and remember the sky is the limit

    Stay focus and set high goals for the next 6 months then build a plan how to get there and again stay focus on your target don;t let anything stop you from getting there.

    This is the only way to get where you want.

    Great!!!

    Analyse the back door out of why they bought. What did you do right? What can be improved? What is the next step?

    Hope you use the sale as a platform to build up and out.

    Congrats on your first sale... I remember mine, it was about $36.50 and I felt like I had won the lottery... lol

    It's a good feeling to know that you can do it, and I would really suggest that you keep doing what you are doing to keep those sales rolling in. I made the mistake of sitting back and relaxing since the sales kept trickling in. I wasn't long before they stopped and I panicked.... As internet marketers, our job is never done.

    Good luck!

    That is awesome! Just don't give up now...the difference between 1 sale and 100 is smaller than you think.

    Nice job!

    That first sale always feels so good...

    And it makes you think...If I can make 1, why not 100? Or 1000?

    Keep up the good work! GL
