My journey in Internet Marketing started in December 2006 when i chanced upon an online course called Jumpstart To Online Profits by Stuart Tan. I signed up for the 2 days workshop and after which, my knowledge in Internet Marketing began to increase and things started to change for me forever! I also made some great friends and successful internet marketers from the course and subsequent networking sessions.
I started using what i learned from the workshop to explore the internet and did trials and testings for different products. I was all over the shop going crazy over this new found knowledge and learned that there are lots of different ways of making money online! One of the products i promoted in the early days was Mike Filsaime’s -Death of Internet Marketing and i made my first $100 from that.
After that i was so elated to see the results i had achieved (for a beginner, even the very first dollar gets you very excited…..i dunno why and i cannot describe the feeling) and i went on to try out other areas of Internet Marketing including Affiliate Marketing, Blogging and eBay.
I managed to earn some money too from Affiliate Marketing and Blogging but soon realized that i do not have so much time for so many different things. The money i made was all over the place and i do not see a substantial sum coming in.
I need to be good at something and it was best that i choose only one to be good at! At least i have to be quite good at it before i move on to other areas. So i was planning which area to go into and thought Heck! Let’s decide after i go for a holiday! So i booked a ticket to Bangkok, Thailand and while shopping there, i had another great idea of the niche i wanna go into on Internet Marketing and that is eBay! So i bought some goods back to try out and sold them on eBay and i hit my first $1000! That was much better than the small measly sum i was getting from all the other various programs! You can read about how i made my first $1000 here
The result meant a lot to me back then as i had resigned from my day job as a bank officer and had decided to do Internet Marketing at a full time basis. I had grown tired of the rat race and told myself if i don’t make it online and cannot survive, i will then go back to find a job, become an employee again. So i worked hard at growing my business and soon enough it grew into a real proper one assuring me that i would not have to work 9 to 5 again!
I had one of my best day ever on my eBay sales! Slowly my eBay business grew to a whooping 5 figures and i never look back! I know i have found something that can lead me to financial freedom and enable me to lead the dream lifestyle that i want to!
So as you can see i focus more on eBay and i will be happy to share my knowledge with all my readers out there! Feel free to leave me your comments and questions and i will try my very best to help you.
