I got my first sale!!!!!

34 replies
I have made thousands a month on eBay but something was missing.

I have made a fair bit affiliate marketing but again, something was missing.

I decided to create my own information product, from scratch, something I was passionate about - and after 8 months of hard, hard, hard work - finally I got my first sale!!

My hard work is paying off - its as though I've broken a barrier and now this is all possible.

Time to scale it up :-)

Keep persisting, keep working hard and you will achieve your goals - don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    I'm a Dating Coach - so no WSO's, completely from scratch - and I am building a list

    And as for the eBay questions - I want to build a business that I'm:

    1. Passionate about
    2. I'm in control of
    3. Something I can do for years to come

    Although selling on eBay is awesome and it's great for people to make a business from - it is completely out of your control, eBay can make some adjustments to their search results and suddenly you won't rank for your products.

    But the 2 main reasons were that I wanted to build a business for years to come, and within my set of goals - that didn't include selling other brands products on eBay, it involved me creating my own line of products via my own website.

    Mainly, a personal preference.

    P.S. Thanks so much for all the positive replies :-)

      Brilliant stuff. Congratulations.

      Were you selling info products on eBay? On disc?

      And how did you promote your new product? To previous eBay customers?

    Congratulations for your success, you deserve it! You made ​​the right decision in choosing to build your own business. This requires more work, but you will have benefits for several years.

    I congratulate you because you believed in yourself and you worked hard to get results instead of hoping to have results overnight.

    I really like to read story like yours, it's very motivating.

    Thanks for the positive feedback guys - I hope to inspire some of you to keep working hard for what you want.

    By the way Blib, this had nothing to do with eBay - completely from scratch.
