Getting My First CB Cheque... A Thank You To My Fellow Warriors

37 replies
Hopefully this is in the right spot (mods please move it if not), but I just had an overwhelming need to thank each and every member here on the forum.

You guys are so positive, motivational and inspirational... I've stalked the Warrior Forum long before I joined, and even then I've been pretty quiet because I didn't feel like I had much to contribute. However, this forum, and especially the War Room, has taught me so much and I finally feel like I'm starting to give back.

After dealing with certain people in my life telling me that what I'm doing can't be done and I should be miserable like them... it's nice to come on here to read about like-minded people. Most of you won't realise it... but you've helped me so much! (And speaking of which, if any of you are from the Geelong/Melbourne area, I would very much like to be friends on Facebook!)

I've yet to make consistent income with IM, just stuff here and there, and right now my first Clickbank cheque is on its way which I'm quite excited about. It's the grand total of just one sale, haha, $50, but it's proof that I CAN DO THIS!

What I Have Learnt This Year:
* Persist, persist, persist. Yes, it CAN be done! Keep persisting until something happens!
* The two most important things in IM are MINDSET and ACTION.
* I know you've all heard this before... but focus on one thing at a time. Create a plan then do it. Don't go hopping from one hyped up product to the next.

I know this has been repeated so many times but it's really all there is to it. And something I really need to follow myself, d'oh. >__>

So this is just a thank you from the bottom of my heart, this forum and its members literally changes lives. You are all amazing!

    Congratulations! You are so right about persistence - it is one of the keys to success. The good news is that once you have that first sale, it seems to break down walls that lead to even more sales.

    Hi all, I joined warrior forum yesterday as a last resort, never made a penny from internet marketing, and feeling rather foolish. I have stopped telling family and freinds what hair brained scheme I am attempting now.
    I would love to hear from anyone, that can give me any advise on how to make may first sale on line.Congratulations to Clara on your first sale and I hope to be able to post a similar in the near future.

    Whoa, just realised all the extra replies here that I haven't read! Thank you very much again to everyone.

    Joe - Oh my gosh thank you! That's so sweet, love it!

    I just came back to update... the last couple of days I've been making sales on the product every day! I feel like I'm finally starting to see the fruits of what I've wanted to achieve for so long.

    To get these sales, I've been using Microsoft Adcenter (and will branch out to Adwords soon). For me personally, I've discovered that paid traffic is somehow cheaper and less time consuming than free traffic. XD All the time I've spent, and all the money I've spent outsourcing for SEO, articles, etc...
    I can either spend tons of money outsourcing on something that may work, or spend $13 on Adcenter and make $24 profit.

    This is just me, because I happen to suck at free traffic. So I've researched paid traffic like Adwords thoroughly and still have some tweaking and learning to do. My product is converting at 1%, so it's also a matter of testing and improving that conversion.

    Meanwhile, I have a second website in the works which should be completed this weekend. So excited, things are going great.

      I've never even heard of Adcenter. I may hit you up for some inside tips.

        I'm certainly no expert on the subject, but would be happy to give you any tips if you're looking into it.

    It doesn't matter how much you made, you made a sale and got some income. So, congratulations, very proud of you, and even that little bit has gave me, and most probably some others more inspiration to keep going for what you want.

    I have to quote this bit, as it's entirely true.

    The thing is. You didn't JUST quote what is needed in Internet Marketing alone, you've actually demonstrated and laid out (simply, mind you) the three main principles of Success for absolutely ANYTHING you want.

    Mind Set -> Action -> Persistence = Result.

    Congratulations once again, incredible story.
