After a ton of work over the last month to get a site up and running and finally figuring out how to best drive traffic for me...

I literally started from scratch...

I logged in to my Amazon Associates account this morning and found my first Amazon Affiliate Sales!

So, no its not a whole lot of money but.. hey, everyone has to have the first buck online right!

Here is the screen shot.. since we affiliate marketers love screen shots



Now I just need 100k more just like it!

Thanks for all the encouragement that I have read on here. I know its just a buck.. but I'm going to keep working and make this happen over and over and over again.

Thanks!

Jeremiah

    Wow congratulation for that! I remembered my own first income back in 2009 when I start Android blog and sold a mobile phone through Amazon and got $21.28 something from first sale. It was great experience and help me to archive some good results.

    Well done. I think most people remember their first dollars online. It's an enlightening process. All of a sudden everything you have heard people talk about becomes a reality. Proof of concept if you will.

    Well done and keep it up. Hard work always pays off eventually.

      It also motivate us to do work very hard and lead us towards better earning as we target first $100. It will take sometime but it will be easy in terms of long term.

    The absolute best experience for a marketer is generating your ever first $1, after that you really don't feel that excitement anymore unless of course you break a new milestone such as $100K, $250K, etc...

    Congratulations!

    I still remember the first $1 I generated promoting a ClickBank offer, I requested a bank transfer yet still got the cheque in the mail which I have framed and hung up on a wall in my home office for memories.

      I have found more money in a cupholder in a rental car.. but I did the exact same thing. This buck and change had me smiling and smiling and smiling.

      I can't wait to do it again, over and over, and over!

      Thanks!

    Congratulation on your first Affiliate dollar! Especially with Amazon which
    I have a lot of troubles, when I started working as an affiliate, due to the
    high volume of competitors.

    Good luck and keep up the great works!

    Congratulations! That first commission, no matter how small is one of the most important you'll ever have.

    It means you have successfully broken through... but don't think it's going to get easier.

    Now that you have gotten a taste it's going to be hard to resist from working on it 24/7.

    But that can be a good thing.
