I remember it like it was just yesterday when I got excited for the first time being an entrepreneur online making my first sale!
My story started in 2013 when I stumbled upon an advertisement on the newspapers called “REAL Internet Secrets Workshop Preview” where it caught my interest. I attended the preview and signed up the 3 days workshop where I learnt to do my own web hosting and build my website online. I also picked up Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) which is essential for the website to be successful. Sounds easy but a lot of time and efforts needed to be put in by an online marketer newbie like me.
But here’s the thing, I tried and I failed many many times. It took me more than 6 months to make my first sale online where I nearly gave up!
The sale came from the website that I first built where I was selling an ebook for $17 and the sale came from United Kingdom (while I resides in Singapore), I was so happy and excited – this actually works! However, that was the only sale I made for the next 8 months… I gave up!
Then I started to explore other courses and opportunities online like CPA affiliate marketing, ClickBank, Facebook marketing, Google Adwords, eCommerce, drop-shipping, Tee shirt printing on demand. You named it I have tried it… I do have sales but did not find success. I did not Gave Up!
Call it fortunate or lucky, It was in 2017 where I found the mentor who showed me what I did wrong and what I was missing. No regrets as I did equipped myself with all the investments, education and knowledge from the courses I signed up and attended. The education and experiences stays with me, so with the enlightenment from my mentor, I reviewed myself and realised where i did wrong and I adjusted myself. I am nothing special, just an ordinary person who does not give up easily. I listen, I take action and I applied what I was learning and the rest is history.
I now began to see a steady trend of result outcomes and I am glad that I persevere, I did not give up and I push myself to continue trying. If I can do it, So Can YOU!
