I can't believe this feeling!
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Hey guys. I just felt like posting.

For all you guys who are new, have you had this feeling? For you seasoned folks, did you experience this when you were new?

I'm not sure how to explain it, but I have this feeling of exhileration and confidence, almost as if I know this is going to work for me, despite the fact that I've yet to make a single penny. I've barely been with SFI 2 weeks and PIPS a bit shorter than that, so not nearly long enough to see the results just yet. Still, I feel like it's going to work. I almost feel like I've already got that extra cash coming in, despite the fact that my activities are still extremely restricted to whatever I have the money for.

I'm a confident and determined person when I put my mind to something, but I've never felt so confident about anything like this before, it just seems so natural!

I'm even struggling to come up with ideas for promoting and all. I've advertised on free sites here and there, started a blog, although having issues putting it on my site, submitted the blog to numerous RSS and Pinging services, posted about it here and there, and all sorts.

Yet, I'm not getting much results. I ahve 3 SFI affiliates under me, though I'm not entirely sure how dedicated they all are just yet, though this one Swedish lady seems promising. I've made no sales on TripleClicks, save the one I bought myself to become Executive Affiliate.

And yet although I have hit a brick wall currently and my business is rather stagnant at the moment, I'm not going to give up. Rather I feel more motivated than EVER!

Anyone else had this feeling?

Oh, and for those who don't know about it, there is another site for free traffic called Traffic Digger. Your ad gets displayed on more sites the more people you refer. Uses viral advertising. If interested in joining, the URL is:

http://www.trafficdigger.com

It's not much and I'm not sure how much traffic it will generate, but it's totally free and who could argue with another free resource?

Zhuuraan Im sure if you keep the same attitude you will make it and maybe it wont happen overnight but effort only pays off when you dont give up and dont be scared of mistakes because as long as you learn from them you will know better the next time around as i myself when i first started made some expensive mistakes but i am better for it now, You do need some guidance from a mentor to put you in the right direction and when you joined the programs you mentioned above i hope you joined a good successfull upline who can lead you and show you the RIGHT way of doing things online,

i'd be more than happy to help you with any questions or advice

I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this way.

There are a lot of marketing methods either on the SFI or PIPS sites or ones that I have thought of myself that I'd like to use but can't yet because I'll be moving soon and when I move getting to various places will be a lot easier and some of these methods will be easier to do.

I really hope that increases my chances of success.

My problem now seems to be that I can't make sales. In barely two weeks, I have 3 affiliates on SFI, which isn't bad, but I haven't sold anything which stinks! I really need to improve in that area I think, but I think some of that will come with time and experience.

Hello, zhuuraan:

I am an experienced PIPS member, but I don't think I am as yet "seasoned." (Although, I do know a couple of "spicy" mentors (the Jeffs) in the PPG! LOL

Yes, I have experienced that feeling of hopeful expectation and elation that you are feeling. It's a feeling like, "I have arrived." The results aren't there yet, but you just KNOW you are on the right track.

Now that I am experienced, however, I go through peaks and valleys of emotions as some weeks everything is going my way, and other weeks, I just can't seem to make any progress. But that is the way of all business and marketing. If it was easy, there would be no opportunity for those of us who stick with it.

Even though my traffic and my sales are not yet where I want them to be, I am still very confident and enthusiastic that PIPS has pointed me in the right direction and given me a good foundation on which to build a lasting home based Internet Marketing business.

Build on your enthusiasm, my friend, and make the most of it.

GT

I have been with Pips for 10 months without success but I am still staying with it because it is the best program of it's type and I am moving up the Google pages. When I reach page 1 things should change for the better.

Hi,

Being one of the Jeff's as GT mentioned I still get very excited when I see a sale....

As my business has evolved...you want more and more our of your business and life evolves...

I always ask myself if today I died did I do my very best to help people?

I love your enthusiasm and there are days I am estatic about my business and there are days that I am frustrated....

What I do now....which I didnt do when I was younger....was..

walk away....catch your breath.....drink a cold beverage and recharge...then jump right back into the fray

Good luck to you!

It is a great feeling. I have been with PIPS for 5 months now and have been hit and miss with my success. I was really excited today to see that my website has made page 8 on Google for "Home Business Ideas". I'm not to page 1 yet but I'm getting there. All I can really say it stick with it no matter how frustrating it may get at times. The hard work will pay off in the end.

Hi zhuuraan,

Keep your enthusiasm high as you learn new things. But more importantly, always apply what you've learn like you're doing now. Taking action is the only way to make money in IM.

I learned this lesson the hard way.

It took me more than a year before I finally got my 1st check (2 weeks ago) and 2nd check (yesterday) from my efforts in IM. Because I got stuck in the learning mode, and never took action. Only this year that I started applying what I've learned and it paid off.

BTW, the commissions did not come from PIPS Not yet...but soon. I've only been in PIPS for two months.

It wasn't a lot, $70 & $98 respectively, but I couldn't believe it that finally it's my turn to get paid.

At first, I didn't want to encash the 1st check 'coz I plan to laminate the original. But there's an economic crisis...so I would settle for a photocopy instead

Zhuuraan, once you get your 1st sale, announce it here and we'll prepare some fireworks

Hi zhuuraan,
it's good thing to have and keep such a high energy level. it's a better thing to convert these energy into effective action plans. and the best is to have continous actions no matter it's rainy or sunny.

forgive my poor english and keep the hard work, you will see the ball rolling faster and faster.

cheers

I know all entreprenuers go throught this to some degree..and it can come up for different reasons for different people but a very smart freind of mind changed my life forever with one small tip and that was teaching me the power of Meditation ...i thought to myself at first this is Stupid but as i put it to a honest try awesome things began to happen very quietly in my business life first i uncover that my mind was cluttered with consient business worries that affected my creative thought processes this slow me down more than i realize it affected everything i could never get into the flow..if you know what i mean Its hard to sit quiet at first but you adapt overtime if you stick with it try it you may Thank Me.

Amanda,

The best advice I can give you is to advertise your website anwhere you can think of or anywhere that Stone is recommeding and NEVER GIVE up no matter what.

Again, take massive action and don't just think about doing things.

You will do well.

Tal

Thank all of you for the encouragement. i will definitely post when I make a sale. I've gotten two more SFI members since this post, and one or two more people who are interested, but still no sales yet. Still, my upline gave me some tips I'm using as well as the training stuff both from PIPS and SFI. Even if nobody from TrafficSwarm is signing up, I do know that I am getting hits, which is a plus at least because it will help my pagerank.

I should get something from the EA bonus pool and the Cash Infusion from SFI, but not sure how much yet. Probably not very much, but it's a start. It'll be cool when I can make enough regular sales to stay EA anyway.

I haven't made any blog posts the past day or two because I've not thought of anything too good yet for one thing and I've had company too, but I'll get back to regular activities in a day or so.

On the plus side though, I did post an article on AC about the traffic sites. I didn't want it to seem self promoting or anything, so I didn't say much except talking about Traffic Digger and Traffic Swarm. I've noticed a lot more from TS though, but that might be because TD is based on referrals.

I need to figure a way to get more TS credits though. I've clicked links and I have it as my start page, and since I browse a lot I get lots of credits that way, but my credits dropped faster last night than they have before. Maybe some of the places I've put info about them will be fruitful though. I really need a downline there!

Hi zhuuraan,

I think that feeling is a pre-requisite to success.

Some people need to have success and then they'll get that feeling...

It actually works the other way around.

If you can generate that feeling consistently and TAKE ACTION out of it on a regular basis, success will inevitably follow.

This is one of the secrets to my success.

Sincerely,

Stone Evans

Thanks Stone. I experienced a down bit earlier, but I've bounced back from it and determined to convince myself that I can do it. Had a bit of discouragement, but I am not going to let it stop me. Matter of fact, last I checked I had 15 subscribers, 2 that hadn't verified yet. I am about to go check how many I have now. Even if it's just 16 I'll be happy. I've averaged approximately 1-3 subscribers per day the past week or so, one day getting none and I think one getting like four or five! It'll be nice when it starts growing faster! I think that'll be a good one!

W00T! I'm up to 17 now! Okay, so that's only about 2 more people, lol but it's still 2 more than I had! Even if I average 2 per day, 30 days from now I'll have 77 subscribers, and I imagine it will start to climb as time progresses!

Hello Zhuuran,

I can remember the same feeling when I knew that things will
get much better. Keep that emotion up and keep trudging on
despite the mistakes. You'll get there
