Do you remember your first online $?

31 replies
I have been struggeling with internet marketing for quite some time now, and finally it happened..

I got my first affiliate sale in the middle of last month! And since then i have had 10 more sales!

And i am over the moon. I am so excited. I dont think i have ever felt this way.

Do you remember how it felt when you got your first online sale?

    A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

    I think everyone remembers the first sale/lead I remember my first £25 lead. I was so happy and wished to be able to make 2-3 like these per day.
    Now I am able to generate 60-70 a day and it still feels fantastic!

    I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.

      many many moons ago
      Loved your words Anne

      I think no one will ever forget their first sales.
      Mine one was someone buying paid membership on my dating site. That sale built my trust and confidence on making money online and pushed me to where I am today

    What a coincidence that this thread was made because I just got my first affiliate sale a few days ago, and I didn't find out until today! I am so excited!

    My first money was made through PPD about 3 years ago. Sales wise, I made my first sale 2 years ago on amazon when I published an e-book.

    I struggled in my first 5 years online. Yes, really. Have lost money in my first 5 years but never gave up hope.

    Your first sale and then your first profitable day is the best feeling especially when you struggle for so long.

      Ebay worked for a few things I no longer needed. It amazed me long ago. With all the changes there, not sure if in a similar situation that a yard sale wouldn't work a lot better for me.

    First of all, congratulations. Second of all, I would suspect we all do. And you won't ever forget it either!

    I remember! My first sale resulted in the sale of a weight loss product. I was using URL forwarding sending traffic to a network marketing company I was involved with. I bought PPC advertising in the old Goto.com (then it became Overture.com which was bought by Yahoo... which then realized that letting Microsoft/Bing handle their PPC was the route to go).

    However - the most exciting sale was on my first website I created using Frontpage back in 2001 - it was a $2-$3 magazine subscription commission & I was pumped!

    Many years ago, I tried to give away my pizza recipes for a SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope).
    Basically, the cost of a postage stamp...(I wanted to build a list)
    After a year, I got zero takers...Free did not work!
    Then I started to sell it for $1...then $2...then $3 ...and $4...I sold hundreds.
    Then I compiled the recipes into an e-book...for $4.95...$5.95 up to...$11.95...
    Great memories...

    Sweet!

    I sure do remember my first online $$$ as it was an image sale to a large textbook publisher back in 2002. That sale was for a nice amount and I made my mind up then as to what I wanted to do ---> which was license pictures online. Those days sure were good back then and that single image ended getting re-licensed several times so I ended up making well over a grand on that image alone.

    Those were the days! Now I am giving thousands of images away for just a few bucks for the entire package! Wow... it's amazing how much the image markets have changed with the advent of cheap digital cameras, camera phones and social media!

    Best of luck!

    I remember mine and it was just as exciting as the orders I had today and yesterday and hopefully tomorrow. Puts me on cloud nine every time! Gives me hope that one day, my lawn care days will only mean having to maintain my own lawn.

      I remember I posted three products on eBay woke up the next morning and saw I made $400 IN MY SLEEP!!!
      I screwed up the shipping and sent the products to the wrong addresses.
      But who cares too much fun.

      It was back in 2000-01? (i'm getting old..) |I didn't even have a website I signed up for affiliate programs, got my affiliate links, and used a program I'd downloaded to spam search engines. back then all this worked... somehow I got an adult affiliate link in the top of Yahoo and made like $1500 in two weeks... without even having a site... Man if it were only that easy nowadays!
