How I Went From Failing Newbie Wasting Serious Money To An Experienced $100 Day Internet Marketer In 6 Months!
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.
Is 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,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, and I also have an interest in earning extra 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% in 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 cars but I knew that people always needed cars, a bit like haircuts!
So I researched, got $1000 together and went to a car 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….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 know enough and it was still in its infancy.. So I went 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 chose 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 it’s now 2017 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 consistent. Although very keen I needed a bit of guidance…
The Turning Point
Fast forward to 2018. I knew the basics of internet marketing and now needed to piece it all together.
I joined a course and 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 three super 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 January 2020 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…
To Your Success
