    Hello BHWs,

    So I literally kept reading and reading then went to take action. I started selling stuff on DP and the day before yesterday, I made my first $5.95 sale ever. It was followed by another sale. Then I put up another thing to be sold and I made 1 sale for $7, that makes about $17 in my paypal account after fees and stuff. So firstly, I would really like to send a HUGE thank you to all those who have helped me reach the start, make my first few bucks ever online.

    So basically, I have a couple of questions I hope someone can help me with them, I have used the search function so I really hope I didn't miss something that was already there.

    So here goes: Firstly, the ebook I sold on DP made 2 sales and BAM! that's it...I got reviews, good ones from members with over 80+ itraders there. I first thought I was going to make a bunch pf sales because after like 15-20 minutes from posting the product, my PM inbox was exploding with PMs for 'review' copies. So I gave about 3 review copies and got the reviews.

    Yesterday, I posted a 'popup script' I had acquired master resale rights to and although I provided a live demo, a video demo and a professionally written sales page (wasn't by me, was included in the reseller package), I got one sale for $7.

    What I'm trying to get to is: I can keep posting products like that forever and making 1-2 sales for each but I feel something is wrong. The first ebook I made was 18 page 100% written by me and I really, really struggled to get it done and yet, 2 sales and it's in the garbage...frustrating...While the other script I had acquired MRR to, I just basically copied and pasted stuff into the sales thread and VIOLA! A sale for $7. What am I missing here?

    The second question, is...Well I found many people here putting goals like '$1' a day, '$10' a day...etc. Well, for me, it may be simple to make like $20 one day and make nothing the next whole week or so. Do you get the picture? Let's take DP, or basically any business..How can you actually 'stabilize' your income? As I mentioned, I got 3 sales on a day...Now my PayPal is literally 'haunted'.

    The third one...Well, during the time I kept reading, reading and reading everywhere and not making any money, I kept seeing many, many offers, many ways to invest, many ways to profit! Bookmark this! Bookmark that! And after I made my first $17 and FINALLY decided to start investing..It's like 'Oh-my-God'...LOL. I mean, with this little $17 could be gone in a blink and I will be left with nothing. So what's possibly worth that? What do you suggest investing in whenever I get the money?

    The fourth and last one...I became quite interested in CPA and started researching..When I found companies, I viewed the registration page and I had to fill in website details, amount of traffic...etc. So do I have to have my website beforehand? Should it be a blog or what? Do they verify the traffic coming? Do I create a website of any niche?

    Thank you very much for taking the time to read this long, boring post. I really hope this will benefit others and I hope it wasn't discussed here before.

    Thanks again in advance for your thoughts and time :)

    I started the same way too..but at DP with their current rules,your thread dissapear quite easy from the first page so it's hard to sell...
    You can't stabilize that income,cause it depends on the people..product..It
    s unsure.
    For CPA you don't need your own website..i just picked a good looking one.
    Read the forum on how to get accepted into CPA,it's easy.
    That's all from me:)
