How I Went From Failing Newbie Wasting Serious Money To An Experienced $100 Day Internet Marketer In 6 Months!
Welcome to ‘My Story’ which will hopefully give YOU the motivation to succeed and TAKE ACTION!
Everyone dreams of the internet lifestyle, the flashy cars, the beach holidays, the one hour a day working…. is this possible… for some yes.. but for 99 % of us no.
It Internet Marketing Easy?
Is It Hard?
I will explain exactly what happened to me and how I got to where I am now, and believe me if I can do it anyone can… I will explain how after years of wasting money I decided to take ACTION and turned my life around in 6 months.
How it all started
First off a bit about me..I am married, I work full time averaging 60 hours a week (240 a month),I have six kids, a large mortgage and a needy wife! But life is good!
I have always been someone who has an interest in pushing themselves to do more and learn new things, I also have an interest in earning money.. now here is the thing.. I have always been in jobs that pay well but I always wanted more.. I like the finer things in life like we all do, the holidays, a nice car, to be able to pay bills and not worry.. having six kids there are always money worries around the corner and I have not even started on weddings and college yet!
To make extra money I have dabbled in almost everything, some worked some failed but I always give 100% to everything I do and remain focused.
The Long Road To Making Money
When I was 24 I decided I would sell cars.. I am not a mechanic and did not know to much about buying and selling but I knew that people always need cars, a bit like haircuts! So I researched, got $1000 together and went to an Auction in Colchester. It was the end of the summer and I drove out in a 10 year old Mazda MX5 purchased for $1000.
I took the car home and spent a day cleaning it.. it looked immaculate. I advertised it on EBAY with a reserve of $1000 (Worse case I got my money back). 7 Days later the car sold for $3500..to a Middle Aged man who may have been having a mid life crisis! Buy hey it sold and I made a great profit. Over the next 4 years I bought and sold hundreds of cars and the money enabled us to have the extras that we all deserve.. oh I forgot to mention, I was working a full time job as well.. (Focus And Take Action) 3 Years later the recession hit and I was stuck with a load of cars (Six actually), I managed to shift them all but lost around $4000 in total.
So now what.. I was now looking at Internet Marketing but did not now enough and it was still in its infancy.. So I went back to Ebay. I took a mentor on which cost me $1500 and between us we choose a niche on Ebay which would enable me to start a store and hopefully make money. We choose Hoover Bags (Yes Hoover Bags) as my selected niche. After leasing with China and getting samples I made my first online purchase…10,000 Hoover Bags!! My wife was not impressed when a large lorry arrived outside my house and dumped off 6 large palettes with a few hundred boxes on!
My house became a hoover bag factory and we had them literally everywhere. Anyway, after two months I was an ebay Powerseller, I sold 10,000 hoover bags….now what.. To progress I needed more, I needed to order 50,000 but I did not have the money.. so I waved goodbye to Ebay and moved on. (And yes, this is still a great niche to get into)!
Next I tried importing. I researched Ebay and found the best selling items, digital cameras and memory cards. I liaised with China and imported a few thousands pounds worth of electrical equipment. Then customs seized it all and put a levy on it, another thousand pounds! I sold them as quick as I could and once again moved on!
So its now 2016 and I am reading a lot about internet marketing. This looks interesting. I learn about funnels, magnets, squeeze pages, Facebook Groups and email lists. I learn as much as I can. I invest $349 in a mentors course and learn the basics. I start to make the odd $50 here, $100 there but nothing consistant. Although very keen I needed a bit of guidance…
The Turning Point
Fast forward to 2018. I knew the basic’s of internet marketing and now needed to piece it all together.
I joined a course run by three top affiliates an once again parted with some money… but it was different this time. I made a promise to myself I would make this work…give it 100%.
So I decided to put together a product, I had never done this before ever. I just decided to take ACTION. I had experience in domain flipping so put together 11 videos on how I do it. I showed my results. I emailed the three affiliates to see what they thought of it thinking they would not ever open their emails. I was wrong! All three responded saying they wanted it! Next thing I knew Flipadom is born and 1800 sales made, and still selling! And it got WSO of the day TWICE! On my first product! AMAZING!
Now I knew I could do it. Other affiliates were talking about me, the buzz was amazing! I had super affiliates emailing me asking me to promote their products. I never had to ask for a review copy again! My email list went from a few hundred to a few thousand overnight.. I started to promote more products using my site, my list and You Tube and began to make daily sales.
I then brought out to two more products, 20 Minute Tactics and 20 Dollar Days on my own, sold over 450 copies in a few days… and forgot to say… I still work 60 hours a week.
So roll on to August 2018 to where I am now.. I easily do on most days $100 days affiliating products, I have another WSO in the pipeline which will be a big launch, adding to my list daily and starting to get into a good place! I plan to continue, build and turn my $100 days into $250 dollar days by the end of year..
How did I do this… I took ACTION. 99% of you reading this will take no action… I know how it feels, its seems hard, an uphill struggle… to be honest it is… BUT… Focus, Take ACTION and YOU can do it…. I did so anybody can!
