What was your first sale online?


I just started this thread on both The Free Ad Forum and on The Warrior Forum. We have received some really interesting comments. The lesson that keeps recurring is that you must be persistent. Some people waited years for their first sale! The first sale you make online is usually the most exciting because it shows you that YOU can market online. It is one thing to listen to how others are being successful but often just experiencing a small success yourself makes all the difference between continuing marketing or giving up.

What was your first sale online? Please tell us. You can join in on the discussion on The Free Ad Forum here. To join the discussion on The Warrior Forum see here. Thank you!

After a career as a professional musician and band leader in the Miami South Florida Area I decided to see if I could make some money with this new internet thing. After years of trial and error I started to get the hang of it and now I am completely financially independent because of my various online businesses. The goal of this blog is to chronicle my continued marketing experiences. I focus on real examples of what works and what does not work. Google does not give us a recipe for getting our sites ranked. We have to use our own experiences to see what actually works rather than theory. I hope you enjoy the blog. Please let us know what you think in the comments area. We appreciate your feedback.

Hi, mine was Auto Cash Funnel, as it was such a fantastic site for loads of information. It was very frustrating having the money held because all buyers paid with the same method. How do you overcome this?

An affiliate link sale for Aweber (back in the day when no one lese knew what Aweber was) – of course once I realised that I could get a fraction of income through a link of someone elses stuff, I started building my own.

That’s the magic!

Hi Matt:

My first sale on line was blasters.I did promote several blasters and I made about $300.00 my first week. It was very exciting and I realize that I can make money online.

Best wishes,

to tell you the truth, evry thing that I have tryed has been a failure. this includes click bank, goggle adsense and a few other things I have tryed. My biggest problem has been marketing. I live on a fixed income and cannot afford pay per click advertising. Classified ads just dont work unless you can upgrade for better exposure. And most that I’ve seen arefull of false promises and very missleading. But who knows, maybe someday!

    Fred, why don’t you try something which combines on and offline marketing? Find a real service or product that you believe in not necessarily something that is being pushed in the internet marketing world. Then put your phone number on your website and offer people personal service. You can charge higher fees and you can always beat the big boys if you can give personal service. If you know SEO real brick and mortar businesses really need people to help promote their websites. You could always improve your skills in this area and offer your services to local businesses in your area. To find clients look around and see who is spending money on advertising. Around here I see a lot of ads for trade schools and lawyers. I had someone who ran a trade school offer me $10,000 to work their seo. I turned it down. Food for thought.
    Forget the mlm stuff.

    Someone told me once that if I kept on doing the same thing day after day expecting different results chances were the results would alway be the same. Then someone told me, if I wanted more money to hang out with people who had money, so I did. My life has changed and I’d like to visit with you. Click on my name, it’s going to take you to my site, yep it’s a lead capture site. Enter your info and continue. You can look around if you want but that’s totally up to you. I’ll call you tomorrow. I had the same story as you not long ago but that’s all changed because of someone who approached me the same way I’m approaching you. Question is are you ready for change? I know I was.

    Your friend,

Hey Matt:

My first sale on line was with Click Bank and I think the first week of promoting several products I made $250.00. Now I’m hooked, there’s money out there and lots of opportunity on the World Wide Web and I’m a part of it.

Having fun in Kansas,

Timothy C. Pacello

Hi Matt and Thank you
My 1st sale on-line was setting up a Domain name for my friend
thru my GoDaddy banner on my website. Comm. 2.14. Not much,but the first fish is always the hardest to catch. Right?
Remember Yesterday is history
Tommorrow is a mystery and
Today is a gift.
That”s why they call it the present
Sincerely gentleiron2
