Getting that first cheque from your online business is a big thing, I know. I remember when I made my first bit of money off of the internet. I was stocked. Lately, I’ve had a few people ask me how I did it and I realized that I’ve never shared this. So I thought that I would.
Before I get into the whole story, I’m going to be frank with you. I’m going to be honest and tell you straight up how I did it. It’s not going to be roses and butterflies here, just the facts.
So how did I get that first cheque?
Not all that easily to tell you the truth. When I first decided to build a business using the internet, I really had no idea what that really meant. At the time, I was involved in a network marketing company and I thought I could grow it faster online than offline. What I didn’t realize was that I was jumping into a completely different ball game.
When I first came online, I had a singular focus, getting leads for my business, period, end of story. That was my fist mistake. Even though I was aware of creating multiple streams of online income, I didn’t really get it and I thought that I wouldn’t need to get it.
Basically I wasted several months trying to get leads for my particular business instead of looking at earning an income from the computer. When I got this concept and actually took action on it, that’s when I made my first cheque.
Now what did I actually do?
I did a couple of things. The first thing that I did was I found an affiliate program for a company that I really liked and respected. It was for a site software program that assist people in the home base business industry build sales funnels quickly and easily. At the time, that was how I was making all of my sales funnels and I figured that if I liked it and was using it, other people would want to use it too.
I got my affiliate account from them all set up and got my affiliate page to promote. I then went out and bought a domain name that I could forward to my affiliate link. (Basically meaning I give people the domain name that I bought and it would send people to my new affiliate page where the sale would be made)
After this, I started to market this domain name. To do that, I did several different things.
1) I made about a half of a dozen different videos all of them pointing back to the domain name.
2) I wrote about a dozen different articles that again pointed back to the domain name.
3) I was active in a forum and I changed my signature link to my new domain name.
Even though I was doing all of this, I some how didn’t make a sale for about a month or two after putting this all together. For me, it was not something that was quick and painless. I spent many hours creating these different content pieces and then many more hours getting some traffic to these pieces of content that pointed back to my affiliate link. But that’s what I did.
Now it was not a big sale, just a whopping $18 but it was income and I did it. I also knew that if it worked once, it could work a thousand times more. So after this, I just kept plugging away at it, building my business. Getting a lot of things wrong but also, a lot of things right.
From following what I learned by making this first bit of cash, I’ve now gone on to make thousands of dollars and I now have a consistent income from the internet. Now I don’t say this to brag or to boast, but to inspire you to take action and grow your own business. I know that it’s possible because when I started, I knew nothing about nothing in the way of the internet.
So use what I’ve done and do it for yourself.
