Started 4 months ago with DCSX.
At first I was following the course's daily lessons.
Then I started solo ads to build my list.
Got up to 120ish that I kind of killed with tons of emails trying to make quick $$$ out of it. Didn't know better back then. Was promoting the offers I thought would bring me more $$$....Didn't really think about quality
When I saw my list growing I thought to myself "I'm fine now, I can put DCSX on the side, I will be making money soon"....couldn't be further from the truth!
Tried more solo ads with different products and squeeze pages and got my list up to 335 subs (as of today)
In my 4 months I didn't make much. I made 2 OTO sales and 3 $1 trial sale with DCSX (hopefully they'll stay after the trial and I'll see some monthly income from it!)
So, now I'm starting to understand a bit more the whole thing (!).....
- Got to build my list
- Got to know my list and take care of them
- Got to provide value and not just sale sale sale!
I'm saying that I'm overwhelmed 'cause I just have so many things that I need to do everyday.
All my subs are spread over 4 lists. One is a 42 days email sequence the rest I write the emails daily. (taking me a long time but getting better at it)
I got back following the DCSX program so I try to do a lesson a day.
I started ARM. It is very powerful but very demanding (which I don't mind 'cause I know it will help me so much)
I work on my website everyday (sep, product review, etc..)
On a good day I can spend 5 hours on IM...some other days barely 2 hours
I've got 2 kids and a wife that I got to take care of and I need to work to feed them.
Can't wait to see some good money come in but I know it can take long.
I've been told, "this isn't a sprint, it's a marathon!"
This is my story in a nutshell!....kind of a messy nutshell though!...
Sorry for being all over the place but I just wrote it as it came!
I though maybe if I write it in here it might resonates with others starting in IM or with successful marketers that have been through the same and could share some insights about it.
By the way....if the form of the sentences and stuff isn't perfect, I'm sorry!
English isn't my first language....I'm from Montreal and I speak french.
