    Hello fellow B'Hatters,

    For many of you, this thread might appear to a boring and irrelevant thread but when I read other member's success stories, it gives a boost to my energy level to achieve the same. Hence, I?m posting this thread in order to thank my fellow black hatters who are always ready to help each other and to boost the morale of fellow members who are working hard but not getting the desired results.

    Well, I've been into Internet marketing for about 2 years now. I've a full time job and work online only for 3-4 hours a day. I still consider myself a noob in so many things but I love to learn new things and implement it. Today my hard work paid off and I grabbed a deal of $20,000 from one of my new client. If everything goes well, there's going to be 2-3 similar deals coming up my way after this one is finished. So, this one is a potential $80k deal which I?ve signed today. I?m from India and $20k here means a lot. (Almost equivalent to 3 years? salary of a Software Engineer in India).

    I've signed up a NDA and hence can't reveal much but the work is all about Reputation Management. I've to improve the reputation of my client's website in the span of 5-6 months. Hopefully, I'll be able to achieve the same. It took almost 3 months to negotiate and finalize the deal. So, this deal really tested my patience. :) Anyways, the best part about this deal is that I was first contacted by the client though fiverr (Yes, you read that right) for their site's reputation management and with regular discussions and some sample work demo, I was able to convince them to shell out $20k.
    So, even a site with small magnitude of earnings can also prove out to be a gold mine. Hence, never under estimate the same.

    Just like I?ve been able to keep myself motivated after reading other member?s success stories, hope this thread also could motivate at least one person to continue with his/her hard work and be successful.

    Once again I would like to thank all of you to help me whenever I had any questions.

    Thanks
