Just Made My First Sale!

117 replies
Hi Warriors,

Im new to this forum and i wasn't really active but I have learned so much from reading the threads and i just love the WSO's.

I found out about internet marketing early this year and have been learning everything about it. I went from one shiny object to another.

There were times i didn't know what i was doing. I felt like i was wasting my money as i was buying all these products buy i didn't really take any action.

I would start a project and didn't follow through.Finally after all this time,i decided to get serious with it and i set up a simple squeeze page. Started collecting a list of subscribers.

What i found in my inbox yesterday really surprised me ! I received a payment notification from Paypal. I earned a commission of $9.95 from a product i was promoting.

I know this is just the beginning to many more things to come.I've never been this motivated before.I have so many ideas now,just got to put it to work.

Guys,this is definitely possible.If i can do it,there's no reason why you can't do the same.

    That sounds really exciting and builds more self confidence. There is a lot you can do as far as internet marketing is concerned you just need to have the drive and passion for it.

    It really takes just one sale in IM to know that you belong! And after that, its just replicating it. Good luck and hope to see you come up with many more sales

    Well done Shatish Rao... You deserve all the success that you are having

    I remeber when I first made my first sale . It immediately cleared my doubt about what was possible in Internet marketing

    If i can earn at least a dollar , I can earn $10,000 , $100,000 or even a million

    I am so glad i earned early because i would have given up if i didn't listen to motivation stuff

    Well done for taking action

    refrain from learning as much as possible . It leads to information overload It only leads to spending money on products and it stops you from making money

    You have made money through a method keep using because it is working

    I wish never tried to learn as much i can because it rubbed me of focus and i keept on losing money and getting disappointed

    so I want to say Congratulations !!!!

    many more to come

      Hi magnates,

      I totally agree with you. I read so much of stuff, after a while i felt i was lost.I didn't know where to start.

      But now i have a clear goal in mind and i'll work towards it.Thanks for your advice,appreciate it.

    Grats! It's awesome when you get that first sale, but remember not get distracted again. That was my problem The first sales came, then they slowed for a little while and I panicked and ran for something else. I should've stayed the course and continued to strengthen my offer and my value, but I learned that lesson well.

    Congrats again and let us know how it continues.

    I just want to thank all of you for cheering me on,you have no idea how much it means to me. It's difficult to talk about internet marketing to people who are close to you, you're family and friends.

    So it's good to know there are a group of people i can share my experience with.

    Now i know why they say this forum has the best support group, you guys are just amazing!

    I'll keep you guys posted on more success stories from me (i hope).=)

      wow, I remember the feeling many years ago.

      And I can tell you the feeling never goes away, when you see those 'you made a sale notice' come to your inbox.

      The important thing is to not let it go to your head, and do nothing for the next few days.

      Use this new formed enthusiasm and get to work and take more action.

      Actions BREEDS RESULTS! as they say, and nothing can be more further from the truth.

      Get to work and come back when you make your 1000th sale.

      I created a simple squeeze page and gave away free report. Just a headline at the top,a large image of the free report i was giving and the aweber form on the right.

      I have to be honest, i had zero subscribers in the beginning.I invested in a solo ad and got about 90 subscribers and I made a sale. I should have worked on my conversions but now i know what i need to do.

      Hope to break even in the next few days but I'll work on building my list for now.So that's how i got my first sale.=)

        Wow that's really cool. Must have cost a bomb I guess for the solo ad and if I got it correctly, out of 90 people, 1 person made the sale for you, that's so cool, I can't wait to start on the list building, cause that's where the money is, heard it so many times on here in WF. :p Congratulations btw!

      Yea sure, I was promoting "100 Subscribers Per Day" by James Penn.I purchase one myself few months ago,enjoyed reading it and learned a few cool tricks.

      For the traffic, I bought a targeted solo ad to my squeeze page.Btw if you're thinking of getting a solo ad, make sure to do a background check on the person selling the ad.

      Go to marketers with good reputation and ask around before you make your purchase.It will save you a lot of trouble if it's done right.

    Well done Shatish.

    That's how I started. Made my $10 dollars and reinvested it to make $20, then reinvested to make $40. It's been a tough struggle especially when your walking up a steep hill but worth it when you see the wonderful view from the top.

    My main aim is to focus and attain the $100 per day. The only way to do this is to use the profit I have earned to hire a coach/mentor. I believe that we all need mentors, especially as I was a boring Accountant. IM is a different profession altogether and requires a good coach/mentor to succeed.

    $100 per day is achievable once you set your goals, have a good coach/mentor and scale it all up.

    Cheers

      That's my strategy as well. I'm going to reinvest anything i make back into my business.

      I have set my goals clearly and I'm working towards it.One step at a time.I do have a coach now and he's been great.It made things a lot easier for me.

      Thanks for your motivation, I really appreciate it.

        Hi Shatish,

        Congrats, Shatish, for making that 1st sales.

        By the time you've read this, I hope you've at least made your 2nd, or even 3rd sales.

        Like what a lot of warriors advised you here, stay focused on doing the stuff that works!

        Apparently, your 1st sales was made becoz you've convinced this customer that you know what you're doing and he or she trusts that you are someone credible to look upon.
        Keep building this relationship and credibility with your list (by sharing with them your knowledge or information that you found useful) and you will see more sales from your existing subscribers and new subscribers.

        Good luck!

          I'm glad to tell you I've made my 4th sale so far. It still surprises me some times.

    congrats. You have the right attitude. When I made my first $100 from a small subscription list, I was so excited. I kept thinking, today it's 50 people on my list, that means soon it will be 100, and if I can double that then it can be 200 etc. It's working. Most importantly, don't give up.

    Hey guys,

    Its heart warming to read your comments and it's helped me push myself even further.

    I have an update for you. Since that day I've made 2 more sales and you're right. Whenever i get a payment received notification from Paypal, I just can't stop smiling to myself.

    It's my goal to make at least $1000 by end of the year. I know it's not much but i want to be realistic. I know it's possible and I'm looking forward to growing my list to 1000 subscribers within the next few months.

    Just want to say to those of you who are just starting out. I made a mistake of reading and learning everything i could about internet marketing but i didn't take much action in the early stages.

    If i knew few months ago what i know now, i would have just started building my list and tweak my sales funnel as i go along.

    Don't make the same mistake as me. You don't need to know everything about internet marketing before you start doing it.

    For example,there are so many ways of driving traffic. There's SEO,PPC, article marketing,videos,forum marketing,social media, social bookmarking.

    You don't have to know all that to start driving traffic to your site. Just pick one or two traffic strategies and apply what you've learned until you become really good at it.

    I'll keep you guys posted on my progress.I feel the more i share with you, the more I get in return.=)

      Thanks.Start implementing your ideas and work from your outcome after that. I realised it's better to get down and dirty than to wait for the perfect timing in internet marketing.=)

      Have a great day

      Awesome job on your first sale. I remember that day back in 1995, I got an affiliate check for $5.98...for the whole month.

      It was exciting...I went to Wendy's and got a small chili and diet coke.

      I thought to myself, "My website bought me lunch this month, next month it's going to at least buy my family dinner," AND IT DID...and much more.

      You are rockin!

    I was just like you, when I first came to this forum it had been recommended to me but there was just so much information I didn't want to post anything until I had learned somethings.

    There is no greater feeling than that first "You've Got Money" email is there? When I got my first one I cried because I had been working so hard with no results for so long that when it finally happened it clicked and I knew that I was on the right path.

    From here the sky is the limit for you, just remember to keep that good feeling in your mind if a dry spell comes because that will pull you through it and as long as you keep on doing what you are doing you are going to do great things.

    Congrats on your success and thank you for sharing this with us.

    Well done,, now you have had the first sale, you can sell 100...

    don't give up, if the next sale does not happen overnight.. It took me 12 months to get my first sale.. Then I did not see another one for another 6 months after that, then almost another 3 months after that... It took me 3 years just to get to a point where the internet paid for itself, hosting etc..

    I did exactly what you did, i switched and changed.. But in the end the education and the experience you get now will all come around an pay you back... there is nothing wrong with how you get there, it all tastes good in the end..

    I have one project I have been working on for around 10 years, the first 5 year it paid nothing, and then only minimum after that,, but now it is starting to pay dividends.. Every time my daughter tells me she cant do something, its too hard, she wants to give up, i only have to remind her that I have been working for 10 years on a project that others told me would fail, yet I knew it would work.. In my mind I see it working, and thats all that matters...

    I guess I told you all this for a reason... Hold that feeling you have now and never let it go, "if its meant to be its up to me" just keep reminding yourself, and if someone says it cant be done, do what I do, whenever someone says it cant be done I say these words in my head "thanks, more money for me then"....

    I found out about internet marketing early this year and have been learning everything about it. I went from one shiny object to another.

    There were times i didn't know what i was doing. I felt like i was wasting my money as i was buying all these products buy i didn't really take any action.

    I would start a project and didn't follow through.Finally after all this time,i decided to get serious with it and i set up a simple squeeze page. Started collecting a list of subscribers.

    What i found in my inbox yesterday really surprised me ! I received a payment notification from Paypal. I earned a commission of $9.95 from a product i was promoting.

    I know this is just the beginning to many more things to come.I've never been this motivated before.I have so many ideas now,just got to put it to work.

    Guys,this is definitely possible.If i can do it,there's no reason why you can't do the same.
    Congratulations! That's definitely exciting! Now pat yourself on the back and try to rinse and repeat what you did!

    How are you promoting it?
