An Inspirational Story For Anyone Attempting Internet Marketing.

I want this to inspire anyone out there wanting to jump into the world of internet marketing, or even if you have been trying to no avail.

The truth is, you CAN conquer the internet world and make some serious money!


Here's my story and how I got started.

I had my first website when I was 12. It was a vBulletin forum that surrounded World of Warcraft. It stayed up for about 4 months, and I made probably $10 with paid subscriptions. I was down money overall, but a 12 year old making $10 revenue is happy nonetheless.

I am in highschool now, do not have a job, and I wanted to make money online. I re-entered the IM world in February. I created my first original niche website. I spent hours and hours and hours working on it. I spent probably $130 on it, and it returned $3 ($2.44 after tax) to me. :rolleyes: Well... You have to start somewhere, right?

I gave up on that website, as it doesn't have enough people interested in it to make any money. I haven't paid for it in 3 months, but it's still up for some reason. Check it out if you want. Your Imaginary Friend

Anyway, after losing the only bit of money I had, I was I had to comeback! So I started playing with one method, which doesn't make me money till later in this short story.

I then joined Fiverr! Yes Fiverr. I had 9 gigs up, all 1/2 stupid, and 1 pretty original one. I made $250-$300 in 1 1/2 months. That was awesome, I was happy. I then spent that money to get my main future income (The above mentioned) on Turbo Awesome Mode.

I then perfected the previous method I was talking about. And for the last 3 months, I have been making more than my parents. (I actually loaned them money! )


So take it from a teenage punk. It doesn't matter who you are, what your background is, how much start up money you have, whether you are the nicest person in the world or the meanest, 6 foot 3, or 4 foot 2, have any experience or not, YOU CAN DO IT. Read that again, because it is true.

Want to know a secret about me? I was suspended from school this year, and my GPA was average. But that didn't put me off. I tried and failed, tried and failed, and then tried and succeeded!

The only person you need support from is yourself. No one believed in me when I started, and now look at them. *Enyvious*



I wanted to write this because ANYONE can make money online. But you have to push for it. You have to WANT it. And you can't give up.


Best of luck,
-HowieM

    I've said this before, I think younger people can afford to be more enthusiastic than the rest of us. No offense meant--I'm actually considering buying your WSO. At your age I would have jumped in no problem, but now...

    Great story, I think that's what we all hope for.

      Your right. Darn my need to speed type and not pay attention to grammar. I'll drop what I'm doing and goto my English 12 Class.

      Thanks though.

    Ya, getting started in high school is a great idea! So much more free time than when you are working and have kids. I'm lucky enough to be a homemaker so I get more free time than the average adult, but my best friend is also trying to get into IM with a full time job and two kids. Nice thing about IM though, even he can do it! He outsources more than I do, and progresses slower, but in six months he is up to $600/month with only about two hours of work, five days a week!

    What a great story! I have been working online for a few years now and was thinking of teaching my daughter my methods as well. She is only 9 now but seeing you were 12 when you started I may offer to teach her around 13 or so. People should never underestimate based on age and you are proof of that! Congrats to you!!

    A real warrior push and pushes and keep going despite many failures , despite it going wrong many times . A warrior keeps going when no one believes in him/ her , when everyone is thinks you are crazy for having hope .

    You are a warrior HowieM .

    I wish I could have had a website when I was your age. My parents didn't give me **** and I couldn't get a job so couldn't afford hosting I wonder what my pr would be now if I had made a propper site 8 years ago instead of the ****ty frehhosts site I had to use instead hmf.

    Well instead I gotta do it the hard way now, but it will be worth it in the end and the internet pie will taste even sweeter

    Great, very inspirational story. I also knew a person whom didn't finish his college and yet a very successful IM and business man

    But I'm not telling that you don't need to finish your schooling anymore. It's a different feeling that you know you have a college diploma and have a degree. Well, it's still up to you. Just an advice.

    Anyhow, I'm still inspired by your post. Hopefully I can make thousands online too!

    Younger and younger people are entering the IM world, and for good cause. If you are tech savvy, and have that 'entrepreneurial flair' you can quite a bit of money. Good job with your business, now scale it up and try something new.

    Mate, quite an interesting story you got there. I started IM 3 years ago which would probably be an age of 20ish, but i didn't start IM with websites, but with social media marketing, and ebook making.
    And hey here's a bit of an advice to you. It doesn't matter if you get suspended, but when you do, make sure you have a good reason to be.
