Story of my first decent success online, $160 to $13,000

86 replies
This happened way back in 2006, I was already making money from other sources online.. but was definitely under financial stress as I was starting from scratch, living by myself. Then I was not a part of any IM forums,all I learnt were from IM courses.. and I already had an immense drive for marketing & business.

But you can't make much happen without some funds, Luckily I had about 200 bucks to spare when this opportunity came up..

In short :

I purchased a website for $160 which was selling a downloadable product for $47, I made approximately $2500/mo in profits for two months using PPC and I sold the site for $5600 within 80 days of inception.



Here's how I did it and how you can too..

I purchased a website for $160 on Sitepoint marketplace (now flippa)

This was my second such purchase, my first purchase was of $250 which was a total waste..but I somehow knew in my gut that I had to invest in this thing.

This is what I learned from my $250 loss and I started looking to purchase a new website under $200 but with a different strategy all together..

1. It had to be in a market that is HUGE - huge search volume - huge demand - huge buzz. So even if I got 1% of the total search volume I would still make decent money

2. Long term trend - The business should be viable for at least 5 years even if you intend to sell it in a few months. It shouldn't be serving a temporary trend.

3. Competition - There should be damn good competition, I didn't care if I had to compete with 30 odd sites. The greater the competition, it served me as proof that there is money to be made - it's not just search and buzz anymore... it's real money!

4. PPC competition - I wanted to see at least 5-7 people competing for the same keyword. More proofs!!

5. It should be a product centric automated business, of which I only take care of traffic to make money - no headaches of service, complicated support or any of that which eats away my time.

Basically I just wanted to be part of a huge impulsive market and have an autpilot bsuiness.

The website I purchased..

Well for under $200 don't expect to buy anything great, you're probably making a mistake buying it - it is only going to serve you as a learning experience. but I was lucky - since I had already learnt a few lessons from my first purchase..

The website I purchased second time around was not just a piece of template, it had actually made about 5-6 sales using PPC with a pathetic, pathetic looking website..

Instantly I knew I could do an infinitely better job at selling that product..

This is what I did with the website within the next 7 days:
  • Instantly hired the best minisite graphics guy I could find and paid $450(borrowed from friend) to redesign the website with AWESOME graphics
  • Listed all competitor websites, their salesletter, pitch and strategies
  • Revamped by salesletter with loads of content and persuasion (I din't use opt-in).. I was only focusing on making impulsive sales as the product demanded.
  • Conducted full blown keyword research and setup PPC campaigns

Once everything came together I re-upd the site and from the next day onwards it instantly started making $50-70 profits/day. With further tweaking it started making a decent $100-150/day.

In two months of running business I decided to cash out which I did on the same marketplace for $5600 making me a total of approximately $13,000 + (including profits made from the business) IN PROFITS. revenues were much much higher..

That's how my first successful project happened, it's not a huge success but it made me believe that I could make it online and since then I have been part of many successful and unsuccessful projects and have sold many online businesses - and the experience is serving me well in my next big venture in life.

It all started from a few hundred dollars in 2006 - and I still sometimes fall flat on my face as I've never been a grt manager of money but I'm working at it.

Takeaways - Yes you can make a living online, don't give up, stretch yourself as much as possible, work as hard as possible, treat everyday as if it's your last,continue learning,believe in yourself and save up when you actually start making serious money.

Also make 'failure' a part of your life..


Even the most successful people on the planet face defeats and failures in their day to day life, you'll face defeat, resistance,losses and many other struggles in life (unlike what Gurus say) - so make failures a part of your life coz you will fail many many times in life to produce a few grand successes.

Enjoy the journey no matter how rough it gets because the journey is the reward.

If you ask me whether particularly you can make it or not - invariably the answer is - 'If you have high degree of persistence, perseverance and desire to succeed you can make it'. It all comes down to 'How bad you want it?"

I'm a drop out, have always been an average student in school and I don't think I've exceptionally high IQ.. but have always been a student of Business from a very early age and passionate about it... That's all I have as my credentials.


What was your first success - what made you believe 'Online' is the way to go..

      A great post indeed.
      I like especially the last part about perseverance and not giving up.

      I think nothing in life is ever easy, if you're ready to step out of our comfort zone, there's always the opportunity to making it big but if we choose to stay in our comfort zone, there's no chance at all.

    Very interesting story although I am seeing it from a slightly different angle
    Personally I have not got the kind of mind that could do quite that kind of thing
    although that's mainly a matter of succeeding at what one loves doing.

    However I do observe your mindset in this which is key to success in general
    and so naturally what I find of most interest in this .
    Actually I do not believe in failure as it's a dualistic concept
    rather I see it as lessons on the journey
    or not yet succeeded so it leaves a path open.
    So many seem to forget about enjoying the journey
    and I do often wonder how many people in pursuing their dreams
    actually wanted the long road to that to be immersed in IM.

    You seem to have a remarkable CALM CONFIDENCE
    that is the key attitude to acquiring whatever one is aiming for.
    I've learnt to leave the definition 'want' out as it is affirmative of staying in a state of.
    Also sometimes persisting in action could for some be more like
    'right action' a buddhist term, one of the 8 pillars they tie in well with this
    another is right thinking
    Buddhism also says that 'thought comes before all manifestation'
    so what you think about you attract
    I'm not a Buddhist as such I just respect wisdom from whatever source.

    My experience is that mindset gets astounding results
    so it is important to attaining anything in life.
    I like 'CHOOSE YOUR ATTITUDE'
    the woman who singlehanded sailed the globe started each day with that.

    So whilst I am refining mastering the actual money side of things
    (which I seem to have just acquired the last missing parts for)

    I have had the exact central platform, that I wished for, come to me out of the blue
    (it did not even exist when I first wished for it a few weeks back)
    that will tie all the disparate parts of my ethical biz together perfectly.

    It was in someways directly tied in with being persistant in being here a year
    despite the newbie blues that means most do not last 6 mnths
    I KNEW I was here for a reason yet it was not in the obvious
    as IM is not my natural 'niche'
    more a 'I wonder why I have landed here'
    That's how I experience my life path always somewhere for another reason
    than i first thought, it always happens, yet still it surprises me.
    It's like higher mind knows where to put me then shows me glimpses till I figure it out.
    Then the lamp is lit.
    I count that as a kind of success
    a wonder filled life whatever ones budget.
    It is in many ways quite magical
    A simple example
    this is an IM site so that is what one expects to find here
    To understand this best think of something you particularly love
    completely unrelated to IM.

    I love Llamas, just was immediately smitten by their beautiful faces
    and despite them living 1,000 of miles away,
    I felt I always had known them, I even wrote a book with them in the story.
    I happened to mention my love of them a short while back
    on an unrelated WSO thread (no one's done one on Llamas that I know of )
    so it was just becuase the vendor happens to live in Peru.

    The other night I got a PM, whilst I was writing one to help a friend
    so the karmic wheel was turning

    'saw you love Llamas
    we used to bred them
    go here for our free book on them
    a fellow Llama lover'

    Another part of this was that is I find things I write come true
    writing down what you wish to be successful in can help
    check out ideas on how to on 77's thread on Wording your affirmations.

    77 I am aware you are well read on mindset books and it shows in this story.
    I would love to know which ones you had read at that point,and which ones first.
    Did you start reading them at the same time as you knew you had an interest in Biz
    or did that come later, what is your story with that please.
    It seems a missed out bit of your story,
    perhaps that's for another thread I will enjoy to read.

    Oh and I don't believe your average IQ unless you compensate by a combination of being methodical and inspired. There are different kinds of intelligence and you do not seem to be lacking, yet are humble enough to inspire others that they can achieve what you have.

      I'm glad to inspire you guys with my success story.

      Flipping websites can make you a ton of money indeed - but you should know what you're doing.

      There are literally millions of real estate investor, everyone you know have some money invested in real estate but that doesn't make each one a professional.

      My advice - do small projects,don't loose money.. once you've the confidence don't second guess yourself just go Bigg..

    If you dismiss the things that do not matter; if you remove those things from your mind and focus on what must be done; if you understand that your time is limited and decide to work now; only then will you be able to get to the finish line.

      I don't see it as a payoff, as it was only the beginning.

      But you need to work rili hard, unlike what most gurus preach.. remember thousands people just like you have access to the same tools, info and resources.. you should really amalgamate various strategies together to create your own sweet spot.

      Don't run with one Clickbank course blindly.. those courses are sold to thousands of people literally making the strategies saturated overnight.

      But you can always use the strategies, mindset and tools to find your own niches and opportunities to make money.

          Of course there were other expenses, as I mentioned I had borrowed abt $500 from friends I think.. also it was no big success compared to the stuffs I'm doing now, but it gave me the confidence that it was possible to make serious money online. Confidence is all you need... success breeds success.

          Succeed at some level, put that confidence in your bag and move ahead with a slightly bigger challenge.. that's how u wud grow.

          Gudluck!

      You're right, life ain't about chasing dollars - but it gives you the choices to your life your own way, take care of people you love and contribute to the changes you want to see in the world. Being rich surely has it share of advantages - though you got to work hard to achieve it if you're not born in it.

    Back to warrior after a long long time, I'm delighted to see my story has inspired so many of you at so many different levels..

    I've several informative posts on WF, but reading all the comments on this particular post gives me grt inner joy..

    There's no better feeling that being able to inspire people to achieve their own greatness, find their own path and live a fulfilled life..

    We're all uniquely talented and gifted in some way.. the trick is to discover your gifts as early as possible.. and hone your craft.. I believe reading other people's success stories instills the belief that we can do it too.. and that is all that you need. The Belief, The Confidence,The Proof.. once your mind accepts the 'Impossible as Possible'.. it's a done deal.. the battle is half won in that moment itself.

    Thank you all for all your kind words... and gudluck to each and everyone of you!! Keep the comments coming.. I will do my best to reply to any technical questions you may have.

    By the way the strategy I used to make money in 2007, works even today. Infact you can have greater,quicker success today than I did back in 2007.. with so many different ways to drive traffic & sales.

    Even today I've many small cash flow websites selling downloadable products, which is 100% automated.. except occasional customer support. It gives you enough free time to chase your bigger dreams.. without having a big staff or time commitment.


    Another small piece of advice: ALWAYS BUILD SELL-ABLE BUSINESSES!. Always build websites with the intent to sell at some point.. even if you don't sell eventually. Diligently record sales & traffic data so that you are in a position to sell if you wish to.. and work on growing the income consistently.. the faster you grow the better price you can sell your asset.

    Reminds me of my first time when I didn't even have a team with me yet. I was working at Walgreens and spending all my money on online marketing stuff. Lost so much money, learned so many lessons - if you stop you end the game right there and then, but for some reason I kept going.

    That's the over arching theme in all of the success stories.

    So happy for you and thanks for keeping the motivation going

    If you ask me whether particularly you can make it or not - invariably the answer is - 'If you have high degree of persistence, perseverance and desire to succeed you can make it'. It all comes down to 'How bad you want it?"
    Sometimes it can get really frustrating but each time I'm tempted to give up, I ask myself how bad do I want it? And I guess I want it bad enough that I keep on hustling each and everyday Thanks for sharing your story!
