I remember the first time I made money online.. it took my breath away because I discovered that if I could make even a few cents online, I could make much more.

My first online profit was $0.23. It was a glorious day.

Instantly I realized if I could make $0.23, I could make $2.30, $23.00, $230.00, $2,300.00, and $23,000.00.

I haven't had a month where I've earned more than $20,000 yet, but I have had many exceeding $8,000.00 and even up to $17,000.00.

So.

How much did you make online in the beginning and how much are you making now?

Don't be shy.

I used to live on the streets, I'm not the brightest tool in the shed, and I play video games more than I should. So this isn't a competition.

    Hi Justing- How are you buddy? Its been long time we've talked

    Well, to be honest first time I made just $0.02 from a PTC site(3 Years back) I went like crazy and ran to my dad saying- I earned money for the first time ! My dad didn't gave a very nice response lol He said can you spend your life with your $0.02 ??

    I thought If i can make $0.02 then I can also make $2000 a month.... And I started my journey to IM.....

    I've made highest $19000 in a month and Paypal limited my account that time.. ROFL !!

    But now easily making $4000-$5000

    Like the friend above, the first money I made was with a PTC called neobux, it was $2.00. Now I'm doing few hundreds per month, not big numbers but as OP said I know that is possible to make much more. And I'll do it.

    This makes me remember story of plenty of fish owner, one his first month he did $5.00 with adsense and years later he's a millionaire.

    I think everyone makes a small amount like that their first time. When I first started it was like a $0.25 or so, maybe less. But yeah, we all start small and work our way up.

    Congrats on your success! I'm no where near at your level of earning, but I expect to get there soon.

    The first amount I made was $7 selling a little eBook I wrote (sold on eBay when they allowed digital products). Took me months to write and was only 11 pages, hehe.
    This year I finally figured out that with the same amount of effort (well actually less) I can now sell my 'systems' for much more than that (non-IM niches). It's doing well.

        Hi Justin,

        I started out on a forum where you were a moderator along with Michael, John and Robert. It's been way too long since I looked in.

        My first income was 2 cents.

        I know it's pathetic but I was so excited.

        Glad to see you still seem to be doing very well.

        Best wishes,

    Well back when I first started I created a site promoting both Adsense ads and Clickbank products. The first time someone clicked on my Adsense ads brought me in a whooping 0.08 cents!!! Haha I didn't care though, I felt like that 8 cents was worth more than a million dollars lol!

    That was the happiest I felt in a long time. My heart was beating so fast lol!

      Justin,

      Just got done reading through this thread and also checked your video on NOU...very inspiring stuff buddy. I had an idea about a year ago for a website, and had to leave the company I was with because it would have been considered competitive. At any rate, I've been working my tail off for almost 3 months and two sales came in last week for a total of $675. It definitely made me realize that it IS possible to make a living on the internet and got me motivated. Now I find myself anticipating the day I can quit working for someone else and make my own money. Can't wait to live on my own terms, travel, and not waste my life slaving away for someone else. Motivational stuff here buddy, keep it up!

    great thread

    first online income was $0.04 from adsense, years ago; did not get excited about that

    this year, though we have not publicized it yet seriously at all, someone bought my band's album - made $7

    then someone bought my amazon kindle book - made $7 - while I was asleep. Someone else bought the print version - made $2. Both of those were very cool.

    then the other day, someone found the published but largely unadvertised landing page for one of my ebooks and bought it - while i was driving - made $34 from that sale

    and that's the exciting one, because (a) I was doing something else at the same time and (b) the sales page converted a visitor (on a very low-traffic site) into a customer

    none of this even begins to recoup the expenses for publishing the products, much less covering the work involved in creating them, but it broke the ice dramatically, and proved that it is possible - and that illustrates (as others have mentioned) the truly great potential of what is to come

    Can someone tell me how you go from 0.23 cents to $2300?

    OK.. so you have a concept that works and then you just duplicate it 1000x?

    Is that how it works? Or can someone tell me how you go to that amount.

    thanks

      There are many different variables in between.

      I achieved $0.23 as a starting point. A day or so later I made $3 and it continued to jump around from then on.

      My experience was just continuing to build upon what I already had. It didn't take 1000x the work.. actually it didn't even take 20x the work. I just started testing things out until I found a formula that made more income.

      Think of it this way.

      If you have a site where you make $0.23 and you have another where you make $23.00, then you're already ahead That's pretty much the direction that I went.

      I saw an opportunity, I went with it, and then expanded upon that.

      Get your first few dollars online. Look at how it was achieved (without cheating) and then think about how you can make even more.

    Very well done Justin I wish I could be at your place right now (LOL, instant certification alert!)

    I'm 23 now, and I started my online business almost a year ago (December 2010). I spent my first 9 months reading and practicing without earning a dime online. But I didn't quit.

    And then the magic happened. Last October, I made my first $14.95 from selling a Saxophone with Amazon Associate through a lens I built on Squidoo. And if you Google "LJ hutchen alto saxophone" you can see my lens That month I made a total of roughly $75 from both Amazon and an ebook I'm affiliated with Clickbank. I felt really good about myself as I understand that this thing is real and I can do it

    This month, I've earned another $17 from both Amazon and Ad clicks from Squidoo lens I built before. Not much, and I haven't received my check but I know it will come soon

    And you know what, I love playing games (I'm a PC addict LOL) just like you. And one day, I realized that it's time to make this thing work for me (to make some money, of course). And from that day onward, I started learning about IM!

    When I read your story, Justin, I feel empowered. As I know there is a buddy at my age making thousands every month. And he is a gamer like me He did it, there is no reason I can't! I don't know how long it would take me to be at your place right now, but I know I will reach it sooner or later. Because I will never quit on this business!

    That's my story up to today. And if there is one thing I want to share with you from my own experience it's to NEVER QUIT! Yes, you might fail many times before you reach your goal. But if you stand up and keep walking, you will be there. I guarantee that!

    It's like the song "If we hold on together" of Diana Ross "Don't lose your way, with each passing day. You've come so far, DON'T THROW IT AWAY!"

      My first earnings when I started out was $3.99 from the sale of an ebook, now I suppose i'm averaging around $1500 a month.

      I earn this through multiple income streams, I do a bit of web design for local small businesses, I do some CPA, Affilate Marketing, I sell ebooks I've also started to sell sites on flippa.

      My advise to anyone just starting out in internet marketing or if your still looking to earn your first $$$'s online, is to take action, stop buying all the WSO's and storing them on your hard drive. Find something your comfortable doing and take action. I promise you once you start taking action and you start earning your first $$$'s the motivation you get drives you on and before you know it you'll be earning a decent amount of CASH!!!!

      Take Action

    It's been around 2 years since I made my first $0.23 online.

    I'm amazed at how far I've come since then.

    It's crazy how starting out in this industry has changed me.

    This week I'll be opening up a recording studio, in 2 weeks I'm opening up a real estate related business, I organize the largest motorcycle community within 200 miles and I can see that anything is possible.

    Keep it up everyone and never give up on your dreams!

      Congratulations!

      I love hearing stories like this because you're still in the game. You haven't given up and that's what is going to help you succeed in life.

      I see so many people give up after 3 months, it's crazy. Heck I've seen people make $xx,xxx's and give up... but to see stories like yours, it gives me hope that there are people out there that are willing to give this a REAL shot and keep trying.

      My biggest tip to you though.

      Try to stay dedicated to one direction and spend as little money as possible if you can. Don't be duped into believing everything you read. Most of these cats are out to get your money. Find those that truly want to help you succeed and you will succeed if you take the appropriate action

      Never give up!

    Excellent thread Justin! I don't think you can under-estimate the value of hearing other people's success stories - however small - because we all like to hear that someone else is or was in a similar boat to ourselves. It can give real meaning to our purpose and helps with motivation for those dreams.

    Yes, that's the attitude! Once you get that first profit of any small amount you know you can do it and it all builds from there - you've proven that.

    Just like 2 humans can have 10 kids and then if things get crazy enough could end up with 100 grandchildren, it's the same with profit-building

    I made about $2.00 from Adsense my first month successfully. That was like four years ago now. That is peanuts compared to what I make now, but keep in mind that I had no SEO, a terrible design, almost no content and was using a free domain. My traffic was coming from article marketing sites. I didn't even know enough to use Ezine, but rather Article Base. Considering I invested 0 and knew about as much, it was a miracle that I could make enough to buy a shake at McDonalds. That showed me that if you know what you are doing there is plenty of potential online!

    My first actual "earning" was about 1 cent from ClickBux, NeoBux or whatever it was called. Never had it paid out, and the work was hideous.

    My second "earning" was about 60-70$ in 2 days with AdSense - then I got banned. Clickbombed -.-'

    Third, and first successful to say, was 120$ by writing 4 (four!) small articles between 30-50 words. Had 'em paid.

    Now I'm averaging about 10 cent a day using AdClickMedia, and hope to scale it once my "greyhat" methods starts to kick in

    I totally agree. The first time I realized that I really make a good amount of money online, was when I built a website for a customer, and saw that as soon as it was finished, and with a bit of marketing, they were pulling in 80k a month. That's just based on local advertising alone for their product. I quickly started going off and working on my content and ways of making money. I'm nowhere near what they're pulling in, but I'm working towards it.

    My first earning in the internet was not from PPC it was with clickbank.

    I tried a lot of things, and never earned a dime. Than, suddely after i didnt do anything on one specific webpage, i looked in my clickbank account, and there was a sale made, what brought me $45.

    I was so happy. I showed it to my wife (i think before that she thought i am completly crazy to do all the work, and never earned something out of it), and that gave me more confidence to keep going.

    I am still not earning really much, but it was a learnign curve. The $45 from the beginning are still in my clickbank account, together with $200 more, since it seems like, that everybody pays with PP and i never get the 5 Credit card payments together to qualify finally, but i am still working on it.

    As of now, it seems like, that i will recieve this month my first adsense check. Than i will have there also my first $100 together.

    I hope one time, that can keep up with some of you guys. My goal is to reach $4000/month, which shoulc be reachable sometimes, even for somebody like me^^

    Best regards

    Super cool thoughts here picked some signature links from u ppl which for sure will help me in my quest

    Here is my lil story my first ... cents were from ppc sites not worth mentioning ) then some substantial one would be from adsense .... got to 20$ in .. 2-3 months then bum they suspended my account ) ... so i had to move on and last month i made an site with pretty much everything some1 needs on an site(a simple one not to groovy) and got 50$(well ... should cut from these like 10-12$ the domain since i am offering it free for few more clients. Also i think i might get my first client on Fiverr which is great ... doing a blog template cant be better then this(so far ofc) more cash will come shortly after i unsuspend my account on ebay hope they will let me do transactions there ... since so far i think thats were u can get(if got a good product to sell - even from wholesalers) nice cash monthly.

    All the best to every1 and as many ppl would say TAKE ACTION! worths it.

    Real quickly I wanted to share a short scenario I recently came across that really ticked me off.

    There was this guy that I met online that was just starting out, he went ahead and build a website, started building traffic to it, and made more than $1,000 in his first week (which in my experience is extremely rare).

    I was so excited for this dude and thought he was going to go really far... but in his second week, he only made $35.00.

    Guess what.. he quit.

    For anyone out there that's starting out, remember you are going to have really good weeks and really bad weeks. But the point is.. if you can make $1,000 one week, you can definitely do it again.

    The reason he only made $35.00 in his second week is because he pretty much thought he didn't have to do anything since that's how he made his first $1,000. He thought that by putting the same bit of effort (which IMO wasn't a lot) would give the same results and that's just not how it works.

    I've tried to get him to come back to the industry and he refuses because he see's it as unreliable.

        Imagine if everyone picked up a penny off the ground and then put the penny into 1 savings account.

      You can do it Ender (reminds me of Minecraft and Ender Dragons)!

      That's a huge increase if you think about it but make sure not to overwhelm yourself.

      If you went from $1.86 to $35.00 in one month, don't always expect that the same increase will happen the next month. You have to be persistent and put forward effort. There's no doubt that you can double or even triple that income once you understand how things work. And then you can start to multiply your earnings by whatever effort you put into the business

    The first time I added Adsense to a site I made $1.75 and a few months later I remember hitting $20 on a Saturday. It seemed really amazing to me at the time that I could build something once and continue to get paid every day.

    Once I had a site making $20 a day consistently I flipped it for around $8000 and then started building again.

    I can't even remember, but I think it was 2 dollars waaay back when the dinosaurs were here nearly. Now I may be making over 1K a week as my contracts with Geo-arbitrage start up and grow to 10s of thousands a week as time goes on.

    I just started using Chitika 4 months ago, this is what my earnings look like so far..

    Jul 2012 - $0.10
    Aug 2012 - $0.38
    Sep 2012 - $0.05
    Oct 2012 - $2.14

    I'm hoping I can roll with the momentum I'm getting and start earning much higher. I've noticed my traffic has doubled in these past few months, which I think helped a lot in October. Can't wait to see what the end of November looks like.

      Hey keep it up JD!

      Make sure to set goals for each month and remember to stay consistent and progress.

      Set a goal today of what you want to achieve in 14 days (not money related) and see if you can reach that goal.

      Hi jeffreydale,

      How much traffic are you getting and in what niche for that income?

      Just curios! Anyways, don't give up, you're on the right way and I know how AMAZING it feels when you actually receive your first check of hundreds of dollars ALL from your online activities! That's when you realize that "OMG, this thing actually WORKS in REAL life! Should happen to you shortly!

      All the best,

          Ah yes, it's a great place to start and could go far, but I find that usually these types of sites get a lot of junk traffic.

          Not to say you should stop going after it. If you believe something will work and can continue to grow the business/site then go all in.

          Just watch out what you share when you post photos on your site.

          If you don't have permission/rights to the photos, posting "hot pics" could lead back to you in the wrong way.

            Agreed. And yes, I have a disclaimer on my site pretty much saying all pictures are assumed to be publicly available and if you own a picture I will take it down or credit you. I've actually gotten 2 e-mails requesting I take a certain picture down, and I did.

            Edit: I also plan on toning down on the "hot girls" posts. I don't want the site to have a perverted reputation or anything. I want to focus more on comedy stuff.. plus the whole thought of having to close my site down, or even worse a lawsuit, does not sit well with me.

    I can't remember my first earning(s) but until recently, I was earning about $10 to $15 a day with Adsense until it got the chop.

    Just recently, it was pay day and I had been looking at a product I needed, I'll say needed rather and than add another shiny thing to go with the others, and when I was in Pay Pal it was only asking for less than what I was intending to pay from my bank account. Why?

    Well, I'd done a review recently and decided I'd put up a video. Well unbeknownest to me, the video had gotten me a sale so I'm more stoked to create videos more than ever!

    Congrats and I think you should try Adsense as well and your earning will be 10 times more than this on the same traffic.

    In everything we do a seed has to be planted. those .23 cents were the seed, the ambition is the food, and the result is the growth. I remember that one day when I went BONKERS, a whole $2.16. Surely I didn't quit my day job at that time, but the seed was planted, and more importantly I THOUGHT ! why the heck didn't they teach this in grad school

    Yikes! I made .50 from adsense when I was starting out but now I make (more or less) $3000 - $5000. However, it took me years before I really started earning money online. Anyway, hard work really does pay...

    Yeah, I can remember my first sale/income in mid 2009. It was 15$ for 1 sale! I was freaking out.

    Before the penguin hit me, my best month was on december/christmas 2011 - it was 13k $... But since penguin, its going more and more down. Actually I´m at 1500$ this month but I´m quite happy.

    I lost my motivation since the penguin and cant imagine to make that much money again. But its good to read that there are still people making that much cash online.

      About $1.37 or something from adsense in or around late 2008.

      Now I'm neatly within the high 4 figure zone monthly.

      It can be amazing feeling that first trickle of online cash come in. But 6 - 9k monthly is nothing to be shy about either

      Now trying for that wondrous 5+ figure a month zone. Tuition and housing is currently eating up my current income lol.

      Wow, that's a very nice income stream.

      What makes me proud of what you did however is that you made $1,500 and yet you were still happy

      Never envision that you won't achieve even greater success though, because if you can do it once, you can do it again.

      That's how many billionaires have gotten out of debt, because they knew how to make money.
