What was your biggest win in IM?

Tell me about the happiest moment in your IM career. That is, the moment when you first started making money, and it came crashing down on you that this all actually worked, and that you could do it. Or maybe it was something else?

I'd love to hear about it.

    My most favorable moment was getting a check in the mail from Google Adsense for $458 when I was younger, the feeling of cashing that was incredible. Being that young and seeing the money roll in, well it makes you feel like you can take on anything! My biggest and most proudest moment was selling a site, and seeing $500K clear into my bank account.

      My biggest moment was when I received the email for my first commission on the website I hope to become my future.

      I guess it told me that all the hard work paid off and I knew it would make money.

      I've made $2200 in one day before, but that $25 was 10000000x more satisfying.

    I like to say something different.. Earning your 1st dollar is obviously great.. but I knowing many other IMarketer from all over the world is even more pleasing.. Money eventually is just a tool.. i admit i love money but i love the friends I made thru IM even more.

    My first $500-week...that's how much I used to get paid on average at my previous job.

    Good times.

    First dollar was also pretty cool

    I can remember my first sale. I converted a PLR product *laughs*

    But I took a picture of that and I still have a copy of it in my computer. I wanted to frame it and put it on the wall back then but I keep forgetting.

    Getting top rankings back in 2005 with my first "real" website for my target keywords was the best feeling ever. The greatest feeling was actually never getting the money itself. It was knowing that I could do this again and again and that was the feeling of freedom of knowing that you can be your own boss and be successful without being dependent on others.

    I did a JV with Mike "winebuddy" Carraway that generated over $3,000 in the first 24 hours and over $8,000 by the end of the week. That was awesome. And it really is all about seeing what's actually possible - that it can happen for you, if you line up all the pieces properly.

    I was 12 years old and made a site for a game called "Interstate '76"

    It ranked at the top of the Yahoo directories (big deal back then!) and I got a check in the mail from eads for ten bucks!

    For me it was the day I made my first $1000 commission selling an elite training program. That's when I really changed direction and never looked back. My first few Amazon sales back when I first started out didn't have any effect on me at all.

    My first adsense click and first amazon sale equally. I was on verge of giving up and boom 1 click for 27 pence and 1 sale for $1.45. Never been so happy for something that can only buy me a happy meal.

    My biggest win had to do with meeting other IMers at a London meeting and from there being able to evaluate products with reference to real actual people I knew and understood. Rather than trying to sort through the super-smart words of some slick copywriter.
