Reading axeninja10's thread made me want to post up even more motivation for those starting out. Just a little motivation that if you put in the time and effort (and most importantly test!) you will see results. They may not come quick, but as long as you keep at it they will come. For starters I work a full-time job. I started IM in mid-November 2013. I made my first Amazon sale in February and have had more sales since then (albeit small commissions on small items) I made my first sale on CB two weeks ago. My method was using SEO (which I learned all from this wonderful place) to rank an informational website that also promoted a CB product. This site sat on the first page of google for a month and absolutely 0 conversions and very little hops. I decided to change things up and design my site in a way to better cater to my target demographic. Shortly after making changes I started to see many more hops and finally some conversions. These aren't huge earnings, but it's proof that you can make money online, even being relatively new at things, if you take the time to put in the effort needed. There was a lot of sacrifice in time involved, but nothing worth something ever comes easy in my experience. Sometimes the biggest motivator is making money. Another great motivator is seeing somebody in your shoes succeed. And thanks to all the people on this forum. The information here is invaluable. And for CB, take note of the gems that mikeisright and Mancar drop. I actively take notes on their responses in other threads and find ways to incorporate them into my own strategies. Cheers guys!
