My first sale

Hi Mark,

This is just to say thanks for the bogging videos i have just created my website and have had it on line for about 2 weeks and have just had my 1st sale of $32.00 i know it's not a massive amount but it's a start.

I have been trying to do this affiliate marketing thing for ages but it has never worked until now.

I have only had 3 articles sent out so far and i am trying to re-spin all the others and link building as you showed us but that's another story.

Thanks alot

Mark (U.K)

The idea of the webinar was to use your own keywords and your own product research. Not to steal marks ideas :(

I suppose I shouldn't assume it's your site although all the ezine articles pointing to it are from author "Mark Long".

Congrats on your first sale but you should really learn to do this processes for your self.

Yes it is my site thanks for the plug!!!!

I thought that coping someone was the best form of flattery wasn't it?????

I think actually in the webinar, Mark does state that you can use these keywords and i have been talking to Mark via emails as well.

Also how many copied Mark doing the wow black book site as well.

thanks for your comments though!

Hey Mark,

Well done on your first sale. Yes TangoShoes, the idea was not to copy my niche and keywords, however I don't mind people doing that. It's just that if everyone copies me in not just my niche, but my keywords too, then there will be a lot more competition than is necessary as I've taught you how to fish for yourself in this bootcamp. ie how to spot other keywords (even in the same niche as me) and how to spot other niches.

Again, I don't mind you copying my niche and keywords, I was just saying that it's great that most people have opted to choose their own niches and keywords by following my method, which was the intention.

If I were you I'd change at least some of the keywords to target some different ones, but that's up to you. Also, you are not allowed to duplicate or reword any of my unique articles from my website, I haven't checked on that yet, but just thought I'd mention so others don't do that.

Congrats on your first sale and all the best for the new year!

Thank Mark and Happy New year to you,

I am working on the new keywords as we speak to expand, just wanted to get a couple more sales first.

All my content on my pages are unique and am re-spinning them as well, thus my question about article tool!

Linking is proving to be a harder job than i thought, but am cracking on.

I just want to get this ranked and do a thorough job before going onto another niche.

thanks again

Mark

Hey Mark,
Great to hear that following the method produces results. A good start is half the battle.
I hope to have the same news myself before January is out.

Yes it is Caoimh,

It does prove it works just got to keep checking where the pages are ranked and keep link building.

I have just signed up for AMA and spun 1 of my articles with 3 links in it and had 2 published so far, 3 at Ezines with 2 links in them and 1 respun at Freetrafficsystem site 2 links in each, thats had 6 published. here's my aff link if you want to check it out! [Sorry but you can add your aff link in the signature file (and congrats on your first sale btw). Franck].

I hope you get some sales soon.

Just becuase Mark Ling is such a cool guy and a gracious host here at Affilorama, doesn't mean that stealing his ideas and work is ethical.
