Successful newbies in 2007 yet??

Postby Fiachra Kavanagh » Sun Nov 11, 2007 10:46 am

So here we are, another year nearly over.

Just wondering are there any new IMs that only started their business after Jan 1st 2007, but who are making good full time income by now?

And If you are, would you mind sharing your story?

I started looking at this so-called internet marketing early this year. Now and then I would read an e-book about internet marketing to satisfy my curiosity.
But as my collection grows I became more and more confused, and I was one of those suffering from information overload. It seems to me that there's always fire sale here, there and everywhere.

well, i make you clear that there are lots of sites offering internet business, but you should pick the right one.

Everyone trying to outdo each other with offerings, promos, new gizmos and what not. Only very few really are giving out the genuine basics, the true foundations of Internet marketing.

BUT, the original question remains - Did you start in early 2007 and if so are you now making a steady income?

Hey guys. Just saw the thread and wanted to share a bit of success. I started in Late January of 2007. In fact I started at this forum.

When I first arrived I was brand new. No experience nothing. I played around with ideas for awhile and just started going after niche markets.
My first 4 months were rather uneventful. In fact other than a few adsense banner clicks I wasn't making much.

Late in my forth month I realized what I was doing wrong. I was trying to do everything and was getting no where fast!
I then started focusing on one thing at a time and quickly started making money. In my fifth month I made around $500. In my 6th month $1000.

By the end of month 7 I was pulling in $1500-$2000. Now one year later after really learning and focusing I am over $5k+ a month and growing.
It was hard work and it still is. I am not at a point where I can sit back and just enjoy a big freakin pile of money.... but then again I don't want to be.

I want to keep the fire a live and I want to continue doing well. Most people want the quick money when they get involved in online marketing but the real gem is growing your business over time.

The biggest tip I can give anyone wanting to make money online is to do one thing first and do it well before moving on. There are a lot of options in internet marketing so find something you like and hammer it home before trying everything else.

The next tip I can give you is don't try to market in the internet marking community right away... get good at something, nich marketing, copywriting, article marketing etc and get involved in the IM community later on. If you get in the IM community to early people will know you have no clue what you are and in the end you'll get "0" sales.

3rd stay after the prize. You want it? Go get it. Nobody is going to do it for you... there is no get rich scheme or anything of the sort. it is going to take work to win the prize. Don't give up.

Thanks for the encouragement

I appreciate the advice and encouragement. I was getting frustrated and depressed since I was not making any money at my web site. I know I'm new to web business (since October 07) but I don't know exactly how to make changes and get everything set up the way that I want. I bought my first web site set up and it's just not what I was hoping for. I plan to take some web authoring classes on March 1st but would like to have things moving by the time that rolls around. Thanks for giving me back some hope.

Thats the biggest thing to avoid, being depressed. Go get what you want... just go after it :)

I know it sounds like the dumbest advice but GO get it..

Only you can control what you are going to do. What is your goal? Do you want to write or design web sites for affiliate marketing? I'd start with EXACTLY what route you want to go after first.

Started in August 2007 ...

Postby ajaonyx47 » Mon Jan 14, 2008 12:27 pm

I started internet marketing in August of 2007 ... and definitely have experienced both the highs and lows.

Starting any new business is hard work ... and for those internet marketing programs that pretty much promise that all you have to do is "sign up and the money will start rolling in" ... we all know by now just how false those promises are.

I was very lucky to be introduced to something that offers a real product ... something that truly sells itself ...

Is it hard work ... absolutely ... but it is very rewarding ... both personally ... in terms of helping people ... and financially ... in terms of making very good income ...

I made over $5,000 in December alone from this opportunity ... with the bonus pool money yet to be awarded for the month.

All I can say for others is definitely keep up the hard work ... with the right opportunity ... the right product ... you CAN make the hard work payoff ...

It is difficult, with one person saying one way is right, and another saying something else is right, what do you do?

I think being a member of a forum is a great plus, and then learn, learn, learn from real people, rather than reading what people say on their sites, which you often have to take with a pinch of salt.

I have been on the net long enough, to know, that most of what people say on their sites is bull, and the best place, to find out the reality of what works is to read real life stories in places like here, the truth of the matter, I know it can be time consuming, but I have learnt lots by just reading.

Stick with one thing, before going onto another, a lot of people fail, because they get bored, because their program is not reaping benefits after a few days, it does take longer than that in reality.

Hope that helps.
