I am Jeff, your online buddy to help you on how to sell online.
I have been earning online for the last 7 years (since 2009). I was in my early 30’s when I first heard about internet marketing.
The idea of earning from the internet while you sleep is cool although in my case it was not really a walk in the park.
I encountered lots of setbacks but the biggest one is the lack of fund.
You see, I live in a 3rd world country where the minimum wage is around $100 per month.
A decent web host cost around $10/month.
A domain name cost around $10/year.
A decent autoresponder cost around $150/year or about $12/month.
Maybe you get the idea now.
On a Sidenote:
If you live in the US, UK or any 1st world country, you got a great head start.
Use it well. How I envy you. =)
So I was left with no choice but to expand my business from its own earnings.
I started with whatever free I could find.
My free training comes from reading through free forum postings.
I needed to put lots of time and effort to do the trial and error process to see which things really work and which don’t.
I began to feel frustrated.
Who else would love to spend so much time on something with nothing to show at the end of the day? (zero income).
I feel tired and broke. 🙁
The only thing that keeps me going is having MY OWN DREAMS.
I know that if I can figure out how to sell online I will have the whole world as my oyster.
I know that I am just a click away from being financially independent.
And then it happened.
I got my first sale.
It was a 50% commission from a $47 product I was promoting.
And then another sale, and then another.
The amount is not much.
But the reality that it is indeed possible to earn online is what excites me more.
My question has changed from is it really possible to sell online
to how can I scale up my online sales?
I have money now to invest to my business tools.
I have money to buy paid training to further improve my skills.
I have money to buy website traffic.
I also belong now to a great online community, Wealthy Affiliate, where we help one another to earn from the internet. I consider this online community as a blessing. My only regrets. I joined WA late.
I could have saved myself from all those trials and errors.
I could have saved myself from buying one course after another from gurus who are more interested of my wallet than my success.
Honestly, I believe with all my heart that WA is all you need to succeed online. You get a website. You get a training. You get a great community. You can start as free member. You can close your wallet and spend $0….
Take it as an advice from the man who has been through the online marketing jungle.
Again, I am Jeff. I’m glad to meet you.
And I see you at the top! 🙂
