How I Made My First $1,000 Online
Before reading I want you to know that I realize $1,000 is nothing to be bragging about (especially not $1,000 in 4 months). But I have produced this blog simply because I am an everdaymarketer. I am a literal Joe Schmo. And when it came to making money online I always got discouraged and these past 4 months have been almost surreal because of the fact that my efforts are finally rewarding me. So it all started…
Around September of 2007 I had joined CashCrate, an online survey site that pays its members for surveys and questioners. It had a referral system and you could earn a % of people you refer. So here was my goal, to get referrals. I tried all the armature approaches, posting flyers, cold emailing, business cards and some traffic sites. I then learned about a social networking site called Yuwie. I read about it in the forums on CashCrate.com and soon realized that social networking sites like Yuwie are incredibly valuable.
As opposed to other social networking sites like MySpace or facebook, Yuwie is heavily online networking orientated. I soon realized that everyone on these sites like Yuwie or 6degree were interested in making money online. So here I was about to begin my journey to making money online.
The First Things I Did:
Before I even joined the company that made me my first thousand I was preparing my skills without even knowing it. You see, regardless of what kind of business you are in the things you need and the tactics you are going to use will be more or less similar. You need leads and traffic to be viewing your blogs/catch pages/websites. So I started blogging.
My first blog was actually about my past addiction to drugs which helped me meet a lot of supportive and loving people. But my first blog to help me make money was about CashCrate. I simply took a photo of a check I received. I made roughly $50/month and my best month eventually was around $200 for that site. So there you have it, I took a photo, posted it in a blog and said a few straightforward things and people started joining….
The Next Thing I Did:
Was probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do, I kept an open mind. One day while pitching my seemingly successful CashCrate business to others I ran across a guy named Kevin. He introduced me to UnselfishWealth and I watched his video. You have to understand I was in the mindset of don’t spend money to make money and I was not about to invest a single cent into anything. But luckily I kept an open mind and literally watched his video 10 times before I considered joining. And then I was hurled on my way….
That was a little under 4 months ago today. And now I know that $1,000 does not seem like a lot at all but again I am no guru. I slacked, I hit walls and pitfalls, I even got discouraged and nearly quit. I was neglectful to my downline, I was lazy and did not put enough effort into it (something we are all guilty of, I mean we are human!) Sometimes I would even beat myself up because I felt that I was not doing enough online.
Then I Cracked The Secret To Creating A Successful Business…
Are you ready for the secret? Of course you are... We all are… The secret was that there was no secret. The secret was to stop looking for the secret. By giving up my search for some magic and ultimate solution to my home based business I found the magic and ultimate solution.
Let Me Explain: The more I searched for what it was exactly I needed to do to explode my business and earnings the more I realized I was searching for the wrong thing. I stopped searching for those magic solutions and I simply made it a daily habit to work on my blogs/website/content/everything. Persistent, efficient effort will %100 of the time show you results.
So there I was just chipping away everyday writing some blogs, optimizing my pages, logging in and participating in all my social networking sites, being helpful and keeping my head up. This was it, and now I made my first $1,000 online in less than 4 months. Again, that does not seem like much but really if I made my first g online then you can too. My next goal… turn my business into a $1,000/month deal… Seem like an attainable goal?
