THE FIRST $100 DOLLARS- how you made it?

68 replies
Hi All,

I want to ask you, how you made your first $100 dollars online?

Which program or WSO helped you actually to make it?

Does anyone got to the $5000 dollars / month level thanks to a coaching or training program? Which one helped you the most?

Thank you,
Gabor

    I think i got into an affiliate program like clickbank and managed to make some sales.
    But the first 100$ were made in about 2 months unfortunately.
    I made them quite easier by gambling at an online casino

    My first $100 was made from a dimesale script I programmed a long time ago.

    In fact, it was my first $400 day (maybe more, can't remember).

    No product showed me how to do it, I just had an idea that I thought would work and then made it happen.

    Since then, I've changed my business model drastically - and focus solely on helping other people launch their products.

      I wish you could have repeated this line about 1000 times.

      I always see this happening in people and I almost think products cause more harm than good. There are definitely great product I'm not denying that. But the majority of my income is from things noone told me to do.

  • My first $100 (in fact my first $X,XXX) was an ebook I created and sold it to my blog readers. It was easy money because I already had a wide audience to market it to, meaning my blog readership.

    Probably through writing services, but my first 'auto-pilot' $100 day came from the sales from my first ebook - I made $900 in 3 days at 16, I was super happy!

    I haven't made 100 yet, but knowing other people do I am certain I can, I've decided to research as much as possible at this point since I know it can and will be done.

  • Fired up a PPC ad leading to a squeeze page. The lead converted into a $625 paying customer.

    A lot of us really like to complicate the online marketing world. A lot of people you have to do this and that, and have this and that.

    But if you just skip all the bullcrap and nonsense, it can be as easy as driving traffic to a capture page that has a highly compelling offer, with a great follow-up and killer up-sells.

    I started off by promoting product launches before they were even submitted at Clickbank.

    I did this by going to JV Notify Pro and looking for the big launches that were going on.

    This helped me pinpoint which lauches were going to be recommended by huge list owners.

    People tend to look for reviews, bounuses scam information etc when it comes to being recommended a new product and the first place they tend to look at for this information is usually Google.

    So I used to create videos and upload them to YouTube regarding the new product launch and offer some kind of bonus if someone was to buy the product through my affiliate link.

    Made some steady incomes from using this method but I now focus my efforts on list building myself after I finally realised the potential of it!!!

    All the best fellow warriors & have a great day!!!

    Selling social signals, that's how I started to have my first $100 days.

    It was fairly simple back then, but nowadays the market is flooded with this stuff, so it's not worth it for me anymore.

    Best wishes,

    Made my first $100 back in 2000 with a company called Top Secrets.
    The most beneficial training program to me was Mentors In Motion. Went straight over $5000 a month applying the training to my primary home business

    lots of ways to do this.

    after many failed attempt senior warriors helped me and I quickly started to make $200 a day online. But it took some effort, but I did this with list building, and solo ads. This strategy still works, and in the right hands can be very effective.

    I made my first hunji drop-shipping on eBay. This later led to having a dedicated ecommerce site.

    Just sign up as a client to a local wholesaler that lets you box drop and start selling on eBay. It's dead easy. The big guys might need you to have a trading history first but some of the small to mids should be able to let you drop-ship on a cash account.

    My first check was from Adsense, but that took well over 5 months to get a measly $140 check. Sure, people probably get it way faster than I do.

    So then I switched to Amazon and got my first $100 within a week and a half.

    My first $100 from a single source came from offering $10 logos. This was back when it was free to list WSOs. I had purchased to pieces of logo-making software for personal use, and had fun playing with them. Then it dawned on me...why not make logos for other people, too?

    I have since moved on to other areas, but that was my first $100.

    All the best,

      I made my first $100+ lump sum online by writing some articles.

      I was approached by a warrior via a pm soon after I joined the forum. They explained they liked my writing style and asked if I would write for them. I was completely new to IM at that point, however, not to writing. Anyway, I'll never forget that day.

    I stumbled on a good domain and started seeing $100+ months from Adsense, but I don't think that's the kind of "program" you're looking for, is it?

    As for coaching type programs, for me it was Sean Donahoe's Simple Cash Magnets. I was a bit overwhelmed by setting up a Clickbank product or WSO back then, so I set up one of his Simple Cash Magnets and started seeing some real money.

    Sean, if you're Googling your own name and stumble on this, THANKS! You got the ball rolling, man!

    Back around four years ago I ran "Paid-To Click" websites. I had no idea what I was doing. Almost within a month I was earning about $50.00 to $100.00 a day in income. About $30.00 of that would be profit after I sent out payments to the members. It was working well for the time being and then the market became overpopulated.

    So now I am using Adsense and Amazon as my main ways of making money. Soon to be adding other affiliate networks and my first list.

    I made my first $100 with Adsense and it took FOREVER to make. Unless you've got huge amounts of traffic or a highly focused bunch of traffic that's clicky in a high paying niche stay away.

    I've had better experience selling affiliate products. I don't think I have a site that uses Adsense anymore.

    I made my first $100 from Youtube. It took me a year to get enough subscribers and views to get approved as a partner and monetize my videos. Now I make a lot more than that because Youtube puts your subs on the homepage if you are logged in -- so I can count on my subscriber base for lots of views on any new video.

    My first $100 online came from Adult Friend Finder by posting classified ads all over the place online as a hot girl in a bikini, with a fake e-mail address that had a vacation response set-up to respond to all the guys who wrote "her".

    Of course the auto-response had a link to my affiliate link and said something like "Thanks for writing me, I am offline now, but see more of my pics here at this site."

    My next $100 came from playing Farmville on Facebook, making lots of friends while I was at it, and promoting a Farmville "Secret Tips" Guide from ClickBank to all of them. I built my first small list doing this and gave them a 3 or 4 page "Farmville Tips" eBook that I wrote myself to get them to opt-in to my list.

      Other than eBay and online poker, I'm almost at my first $100. The first $70 was from an affiliate earning, the next $20 was from PLR eBooks. One more sale and I'll break $100.
      My first 4 months I made nothing. All my earnings have come from the past month (actually the last 2 weeks), and I think I have begun to understand "how the game is played." It's easy to hear "get a great product, put together a great sales page, drive traffic to your site, and up-sell," but that's much easier said than done for most Newbies. Some people just don't appreciate how fortunate they are. It's taken me awhile to find my way around, but feel like I've finally got a good foundation and am actually feeling much more confident in my choices now.
