Three Things I Learnt From My First $20k Month

Three Things + 1

It happened in my third month as a newbie affiliate marketer. Boom!   I was promoting a high ticket offer and after a few glitches in month 1, there was no stopping me.

Keep in mind that I was being paid in Australian dollars but $AU26,000+in just my 3rd month was pretty good money, no matter which way you look at it.  This was on top of the $26k I had made in the first 2 months.

Of course, I had to deduct the cost of ads.  I spent $AU1,750 in months 1 and 2, and virtually zero in Month 3.

The Bad News
There are always ups and downs in business.  Anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional; these are the folks who want to believe in fairy tales and make-believe.  Not me.  I’m a hard-nosed realist.  So, I bombed in Month 4 – January 2007.  Fortunately, I bounced back in February with another good 5 figure month.

Anyway, the point of this post is not to brag or show you how good I am (or not).  It is simply to say there are always lessons to be learned.
Some say you only learn from your setbacks.  I refute this.  You learn from both your wins and losses, sometimes in equal measure.

So on this Facebook Live replay, I share the key lessons I learned from those early successes.

Take a look – you’ll be glad you did.

I am no longer a high-ticket affiliate marketer.  After crossing the million-dollar in commissions earned threshold I made the decision to share my skills and knowledge with others who want to attract more clients and customers using online methods.

So if you’re a coach, consultant, digital agency, designer, course creator, or affiliate marketer, talk to me soon.
