    so, for weeks, i've been blogging, writing articles, promoting, trying everything and i havnt got even 1 sale.. i skipped over alot of methods thinking they were too simple to work. Well, it seems that getting a guide to a game and putting one post on a forum got me my first sale, thats 2 minutes work. I was ready to give up but now i think i'll stick to it and upscale. Thanks BHW for the method helps!

    It was only $17, but i needed this first sale to motivate me, and it certainly has :D

    congrats milestone! That's what happens when your link is shown to a targeted and active audience. You could outsource this by getting someone to post for 10c a post.

    Yeh, i am going to try a few things. Forums, gaming IRC, facebook groups, social bookmarking, i only got 10 page views and made 1 sale, if it stays at this conversion rate (would be amazing, but possible maybe?) this money could help me to work on my 'bigger' ideas lol.

    Congrats man! The same situation was with me - I was working hard in order to get at least one sale with e-whoring, but later when I tried chatting, after 4-5 mins I made $30! It was the most easy and fastest money I made :D, which motivated me also very much :)

    The first sale/lead is always the best, it boosts your confidence.

    Great. If something doesn't work move on.

    This is why I don't do article marketing, blogging or any other white stuff anymore. I rather use social media.

    I didnt read it in a thread, i just kinda put lots of other methods together. It's simple though.

    this is what you do. Find a popular game, like WoW or CSS (im sure you can think of something better). find a good converting product for it (i got one from clickbank). cloak the url, i just used bit.ly. Find places where people discuss the game, and act like a real person whos just giving out tips. Try not to look spammy, people hate it and avoid it. just post on forums, facebook groups, myspace groups, game chats .. anywhere where these gamers may hang out. It's really that simple..

    This was what i felt in the beginning of my Journey too. I wouldn't have accomplished the so many things i did over the past months without the help of BHW and its special members.
