Small Success story..(motivated myself)

13 replies
My background : Pretty much know the basics of PPC/SEO. Been doing affiliate marketing for 3years now but NOT consistent due to laziness. I can teach a course on it but really tho..my life is so busy from school and work.

So in January of this year. I had a GOAL..MAKE MONEY online consistent. I joined a CPA network. My friend was already making $40-$80 a day. His friend started 2 weeks before I did and she was making $20-$60 a day. My friend kept bragging about how his friend was making me then me to motivate me.

So January passes and his friend made $800. And guess how much I made? <$10.00. Yup you read that right. In 30 days I made only $10.

The first week of February, I made like $5. So my total earnings was $15. I was about to throw in the towel and say.."forget this crap". Then I found a really good niche and I pretty much just said.."ok I'm throwing in my link and who cares of the outcome".

Made $67 that day and the niche died. thats ok

Found another niche and got a way to somehow rank #1 on google. The link got removed but guess what?

Earnings for the last 2 weeks of February = $620.

Right now I know..I don't have anything consistent but I just want to say one thing. I motivated myself by actually doing work and looking forward from days to come where I succeed like crazy. If that's how easy it was to make $620 I don't see why I can't double or triple it.

Oh if you're wondering how in the world I managed to make $10 for 30 days. Well I spent about 90% of my time studying and doing research on how people made money online. I hope this motivates at least one person to go on and I done my job here.

STOP READING AND DO REAL WORK!!

    I'm the first to admit that I'm quite lazy.

    Now, I found a business model that I like and

    persisting in it like a madman.


    Nice one, Director J!

    Godspeed to you.



    Cheers,

    Great story, just like the one in Think and Grow Rich "3 Feet From Gold", the secret is to never quit no matter how hard it gets. You will make it happen with the right direction and persistence.

    Very good! It's hard to put all that work in before you see the money, but once the money is there you have a whole new renewed sense of motivation.
