    Wow...after years of on and off trying IM I have finally made my first sale! It feels so good!

    I have tried working with clickbank before but never tried direct linking and PPC...lets hope its not just a fluke!

    Firstly...I wanted to know...is it possible to get to the point where I can quit my job and just do direct linking with clickank?

    Secondly...I get the feeling your all going to tell me to make a landing page! Yeah I read these forums haha...and a lot of people are saying I will get more conversions this way...my problem is that I am terrible at writing sales copy! And then if I maybe outsource this...although I have read on this forum that if i wanna buy landing page sales content from someone it aint cheap...maybe someone can point me in the right direction?

    Anyway...if i get a landing page together is one of the main reasons people say this is more profitable is because it allows you to build up a list? Again...I dont really think of myself as a sales man and just think I would struggle to do this...people say you have to build a 'relationship' with people on your list which again...im not sure I would do too well with although I guess I can only try...

    If I were to build a list I guess I would offer some good free information and then every now and then chuck in some affiliate links to stuff?

    Again...if anyone can point me in the right direction here and maybe provide a few tips I am all ears!

    ...if not...a part of me just wanted to shout somewhere...I GOT MY FIRST SALE!!!

    My rule of thumb for quiting my job is:
    If my IM makes more money than my job and the time required to run it becomes a full time job on its own (not counting work that you can get a VA to do)

    Bwhaha made one sale and already fantasizing about quitting his job :D

    Is it possible to live off IM only, sure, is it possible by just doing clickbank, I highly doubt it unless you some kind of wonderchild.

    Clickbank among a couple other IM ways is like gambling, it requires a certain skill and luck, you can win big or lose it all, very very few people can make a living of it by just doing that.

    You need to have more sale before quitting your job

    Lol...I'm not exactly handing my notice in! A dude can dream though right? I guess what I was really getting at was more...can this actually be achieved with just what I am doing?

    Have you got any suggestions for things that are better than clickbank? I am a member of CJ but havent quite got my head around how it works compared to clickbank...

    NO

    • vendors normally give email copies to promote to your list (check affiliate resources )
    • Just create a separate email and subscribe to bunch of big sites/ gurus in the niche..study how they write emails to the subscribers

    comon lets shout together

    Sure you can dream but dream about a realistic goal, I dream to be a astronaut but will never achieve it :p but seriously I already gave you an answer, stick with clickbank but just don't focus on clickbank only, yeah you can make a living off IM, just need to have multiple IM ways to achieve that.

    The challenge for you is to find out what that will be for you, people that make real money with it aren't posting it like some of those people here or message boards, also, don't believe any guide that is being sold, they always contain info you can find yourself for free and pretty much always consist off saturated ways, that was a mistake that I made ;)

    Direct linking will work as you have proven but it's best to make a lp. Building an email list the right way always has a good roi
