My First Simple Money Making Campaign [Laid Bare]

Hey folks,

Today I just wanted to show you how I made first sales ever online (over a year and a bit ago), which happened to be in the teeth whitening niche

(Note I actually made my first $10 online just writing articles for an internet marketer)

Ok now's there was a bit of elbow grease and most importantly it was all done without spending anything (besides my time)

So the basic idea was

Lots of Ezinearticles ==> One Squidoo Lens ===> Affiliate Link

Pretty simple

In the articles I provided value and on the squidoo lens I provided a review.

For a sample of the articles I wrote see here ...

(The ones I'm referring to have to do with teeth whitening)

James Law - EzineArticles.com Expert Author
Rebecca Hedington - EzineArticles.com Expert Author

And then my squidoo lens was here

Easily Whiten Teeth | The Secret Is Out!!

recommending a MarketHealth.Com product

As this was more or less my VERY first attempt at anything online
and over the course of a year it's brought in around $1000. (and still continues to do so..albeit on a small scale)

Obviously i could've done a lot of things differently (pointed the articles to my own website and collected opt-ins), but at least I did something and that spurred me on even greater stuff.

There's no perfect niche/article/offer/web template!!!

Just go out and do it!

You'll be surprised...seriously

    Interesting story...

    Could you please elaborate a bit on the procedure you used? I'm still not clear on how Squidoo works. Where did you place your affiliate links?

    Thanks!

          This is a very generous post.

          What I took from this post is - JUST DO SOMETHING!!

          I also appreciate your humbleness in acknowledging that you could have done more/better.

          Thanks again.

            One more thought!!

            The other thing that I enjoyed about this post and model is that there are so many different ways to scale it.

            Rework the articles, spin them, write new ones and create more links that go to a site that you create.

            Turn the articles into little videos that link to this Squidoo page, etc. etc.

            I guess the point is that once the foundation is in place other modules can be added that make it even better or it can just be left alone as a a passive cash machine.

          Yes Emma, I can see from your photograph you have wonderful teeth.

          Teeth whitening still seems to be a hot product so there is opportunity to jump on board and promote this product in many different ways such as CPA offers and banner advertising for example.

    i absolutely agree - there is no magic bullet that will make it work, other than dong it! Making $10 online is MONUMENTAL, most can never get to one cent - make a process that works for you and stick to it.

    Dance until it rains,
