First Post Ever, My Story.

Hi guys, I've been a member of Black Hat World now for a while, but I decided to shift myself over to the WarriorForum. I like the community here better. It seems like there are a lot less noobs here, and a lot more people that actually know what they're talking about, and can speak solid English.

So my story is nuts so far. I'm nineteen, and I've made about 18K from the Internet through various methods over the past two years. In my last year of high school I had a viral Facebook game cheats site running with a CPA offer blocking the cheats, and long story short it made me around 14K in about 4 months. This was before Facebook started going around like a Whack-a-mole hammer and shutting down every site that had anything to do with Facebook though. I was almost sued by Zynga, and later Facebook, but I was able to negotiate with the lawyer that contacted me and got out of it, only having to sign an agreement. I consider myself very lucky for getting out of that situation unscathed.

Right now I, along with a friend, run a site in the game niche that brings in around 500-700 people a day, and makes an average of 2.5 sales a day of a $37 product from Clickbank. This is basically my only source of income right now. I also have a review site, which I review new Clickbank products that come out, which has almost 40 reviews, and ranks pretty well for a lot of product keywords, but has still yet to make a sale.

So my latest project is....drumroll please...an e-book! Finally, after two and a half years of being involved in affiliate marketing, CPA marketing, I have got my inspiration to write an e-book. The niche is perfect because information about this specific subject is in very high demand right now, and I know a lot about it. I've never done a product launch before. I, myself am writing the e-book, but I'm probably going to outsource the sales page. I'm going to do a video for the top of the sales page myself. I'm hoping to launch the e-book on Clickbank in under a month in a half, but I want to get as many JV people as I can on board before the launch so we'll see.

I'll see you guys around the forum!

    Welcome!

    It sounds like you're on the right track - creating your own product! With the "allegedly" closely-knit gamers community and social marketing, this should be a great success! Maybe not in the 6-, or 7-figure category, but who knows?

    I would strongly encourage you to join the War Room ASAP. It's a ridiculously cheap, one-time US$37 and you'll more than make up for it tens of times over with your upcoming product launch.

      Thanks for the support. I keep hearing all this hype about the War Room. Is it like a private part of the Warrior Forum where all the genius super affiliates get together or something?

    War Room is a place full of valuable products and resources. Many people give their WSOs away there for free so you will find many great books and reports to read there. Also, if you upgrade to War Room you will be able to pay to post up your own WSOs and you get way more PM space. I did it mainly for PM space but I immediately found well over $37 worth of value from the WSOs being offered there.

      Hmmm, then maybe I will give the War Room a try. My main goal of joining the War Room is going to be finding JV partners for my product launch for my first product. I really want to start with a bang and establish a name for myself. Sorry, I have high expectations for myself haha.

        No apologies -- that's the only way to the top, Dzierba. Congratulations, and let me know if you need a co-writer or editor. Would be happy to help.

    I don't think I will need help writing the e-book itself. I love writing, and writing about this particular topic comes very naturally for me, so I'm sure I'll have it finished within a week. However, I most likely will need help with the sales page, and I'm guessing that will be the only thing I will outsource on this project. The only thing is, I want my sales page done professionally, but I still want to be able to edit it myself, and add videos to it etc.. If you have any good suggestions for people who can create a killer sales page for a budget of around $200 hit me up. I want my sales page to be Google Sniper 2, good. That sales page is the king of all sales pages.

      I'm sorry, but you'll be lucky to get the
      graphics on that page for $200.

      You're probably looking at 3 Grand or
      better for the sales page.

      There are a lot of great copywriters on
      this forum, that can just about sell air
      conditioners to Eskimos, but they don't
      work that cheap.

      I'm not trying to be rude, or even
      sarcastic. I'm just stating facts.

      Welcome to the forum.

      Michael
