My most memorable moment online is...

Hello,

If you look back, what has been your most memorable moment online?

For me it wasn't my first sale although that was very memorable for me as well. For me my most memorable moment online was my first launch to my list. It was at that moment that I realized that my "dream" was real and that I could actually quit my terrible job and live the vision that I always knew my life could be.

I haven't looked back since.

So what's your most memorable moment online?

    I realized that IM was a real business and my dream started becoming reality when I made my first two sales... It was a memorable moment for me.

    The morning I woke up and traffic was hitting the server so hard that every time I refreshed Statcounter there was something like 2000+ new visitors. Ended up with about 2 million uniques on one page that day, even after dealing with the site was down for several hours (upgrading it to handle the traffic).

    Then the 2nd memorable moment was the next day, looking at Google AdSense and seeing that I only made $8 that day with all that traffic.

    My most memorable moments were getting invited to deliver a music success mindset seminar at PopKomm (the largest european music industry conference in Berlin) in 2010, and Midem (the worlds largest music industry conference in beautiful Cannes in the south of France). Although I'm no longer in the online music promotion business, it did give me a benchmark that I'd hit the pinnacle of my work in that field when the invite emails came through...

    My most memorable moment was when I got my first check in the mail from AdultFriendFinder ( I think it was only 30 or 40 bucks if I remember correctly).

    It was then that I realized that "making money online" was something that was REAL and Do-able.

        I believe the most memorable moment was in 2007 when I began promoting a high ticket product that cost $2,000. The day the product launched I received a commission of $988.78 from just one sale. I was so shocked that I called my wife into the room and asked her to read the numbers to me because I couldn't believe it.

        I made many more sales of this product for months. This was the first time ever in my life that I had extra money. I paid off a good amount of debt and had an amazing summer doing fun things that I was never able to do before due to being broke all the time.

        My most memorable day was the first day (October 17, 2008) where I took real action, I sat down and thought, I am going to change my life, never looked back. I couldn't care about the money, the first sale I made, all of that is just icing on the cake. My best moment is knowing that I can sit here and do something I enjoy doing, make some money and actually enjoy life. I am still relatively young, I have have gone out and earned the thing I love, unlike most of the people in this world who sit there and wait for it to fall in their laps. There is no point doing nothing half assed in this world because quite honestly, it never works.

    Definitely getting my first check in the mail from Clickbank the same week my first check came in the mail from Amazon.

    I built some sites promoting various products but after not having much success driving traffic I kind of stopped thinking about them for a couple of months. Then 2 checks days apart! Talk about reigniting the fire!

  • Although my first sale was a memorable experience aswell, it wasen't the the most memorable.

    My most memorable has to be meeting this guy when I first started out, he helped me get started and believed in me, when I didn't. No, he didn't charge anything and he didn't link me any affiliate links, he truly just helped a newcomer out :-)

    My most memorable incident online was:

    Once I wanted to purchase a product but could not find the link. I emailed the internet marketer whose product it was and whose list I subscribe to. I told him I wanted to purchase the product but could not find the link. He sent me the product link but did not charge me for it. I wrote him back telling him he made a mistake. He wrote back and said he wanted me to have it.

    His name is Mark Hess.

    The most Memorable Moment online was when I first sent a mail to my Email list And got 3 sales and just made $133 First time.

    Before that This was my last try And i was going to quit i the list would have failed and won't be here typing this.

    That success gave me hope to try more and I'am now earning decent income and always find new ways to make money. Internet marketing is profitable until you realize it yourself and Its lot better than get yourself abused by your boss everyday.

    It was my first sale for me as well. As soon as I saw that what I believed would work was actually working I knew I'd never have to work a 9 - 5 again

      Sitting in a grad school class, with a prof who lectured. He didn't tolerate people raising hands or asking questions - he would ignore you, or mock you.

      So there I sat with my laptop, taking notes, with my friend who knew I was in class, who wouldn't normally interrupt me, IMing me to tell me that the World Trade Center had been hit by a plane. I sat there for the better part of an hour wondering if I should I actually raise my hand to let other people know what was going on? Or if I should just let him be his stupid self-centered self and just read as much as I could.

      I did try to raise my hand for a bit, but predictably, he ignored me. So I got the attention of some people around me. By the end of the class, he was rather confused as to why about 10% of the class was ignoring him and was huddled around me and my computer. And then other faculty members came in with "the announcement". Yeah sure, douchebag, your discourse on business law was really important for the past hour. I bet you feel really important for having 90% of your class's attention during this....

      I couldn't access any major news website at the time. NBC, ABC, CNN were all clogged with traffic. Then, desperate to see what was going on, I decided to try ESPN.com when I thought maybe the entire connection was just down. It was the front page story there too and that's where I got my breaking news from that day.


      Now, there's another story, from a few hours later. The only time in my life that I genuinely shit in my pants out of fear. But I guess that's for another time and place...

    I think mine, so far, is the time I checked my e-mail and found that the notification that I had made my first sale. For someone who's been trying IM for over 10 years and never really had clue what I was doing, that first sale was a pretty big deal for me, proving that what I've been learning and putting into practice over the last few months actually works!

    July 2006, I had launched a new site selling an ebook, related to a hobby I am passionate about. After all the prep work, I went to bed and woke up in the morning to see over 100 orders of my ebook there. I was selling the book for $19 at that time, so I had just woken up with over $2K in my PayPal account. I floated on air that entire day. Still remember it like it was yesterday.

    Reaching the threshold required to getting the first payment from Clickbank, sticks out. Getting that first cheque was a breakthrough moment. It was actually the first and last Clickbank cheque, since I switched to direct payments.

    Thinking about it, it's almost cruel for anyone just starting out, seeing the money in your account but not having access.

        Two moments:

        When the first clickbank sale of $42.50 popped into my account. That came via adwords ppc, CDR killing my buzz when i realized that money wasn't coming my way as fast as i thought.

        THEN...

        Making almost 5 figures last December helping me taste what it really feels like to a high profit "super affiliate".

        Such an insane moment knowing you're that close to reaching the goal you made all that time long ago. Where your efforts really feel like they're finally paying off to amazing effect. I live for that feeling and the rewards that accompany it

          There are so many.

          Here are a few:

          # When I sold an article online to an offline magazine for $100.

          # When I sold a service...an online press release and report for $1,500.

          # When I realized that having a great looking website was just work that I could do. It didn't require spending money.

          # When a host from a radio show who'd responded to one of my emails told me on air that we were live to 40 radio stations across Australia.

          # When I sold the writing of follow up sales emails for $60 each.

          # My first 5 figure client (around $17,000 for two weeks work) and over the same time period making around $30,000 sitting on a couch on vacation in under 2 months.

          Kindest regards,
