How To Make Your First $1,000 Online- Here’s How I Did It

By | January 8, 2017

How to make a thousand dollars onlineHave you been searching for a way to make your first $1,000 online?

Aren’t we all?

I was in search of the exact same thing and I spent thousands of dollars over the years searching for a way to do this but instead, I ended up falling for just about every imaginable scam out there that you can think of.

I knew that it was possible but I had no idea that I would have to wade through so many BS products that filled my head with empty promises and drained my wallet.

After I ended up losing thousands of dollars to these con artists, I started to lose hope and started to think that everything related to making money online was a scam.

However, I knew there had to be a way because I kept seeing posts all over Facebook about the millions of dollars that other people were making so I continued my search.

In the following post, I’ll be sharing my experience with you guys today and showing you how I made my first $1,000 online.

I’ll also be providing you with a step by step plan of action that you can follow to earn your first $1,000 online as well.

My Own Personal Journey In The Online World

I can remember as far back as the early to mid 90’s before this thing that we call the internet even existed, that I was in search of ways to make money.

Do you guys remember assembling kits you could send for through the mail where you could get paid to assemble products?

This was another thing that I tried with no success and I can even remember the whole stuffing envelopes jobs as well.

Remember those?

I ended up failing with all of these things and like I said earlier, I went on to lose several thousands of dollars falling for many other get rich quick schemes.

How I Fought My Way Through A Sea Of Scams & Found Some Direction

At this point, I’ve tried everything from recruiting my family members into MLM schemes to getting sucked into the latest Cash Gifting Scam.

To be quite honest with you guys, I was getting pretty fed up at this point.

Back in 2012 I joined a company called Ameriplan and I’ve got to admit, I thought this was the right company for me, but found out later that it wasn’t.

Little did I know at the time that the next money making opportunity I was about to stumble onto would be exactly what I was looking for and the one that would change my life forever.

Naturally, I was a bit skeptical but can you really blame me, though?

I have lost several thousand to other programs that claim to hold the secret to making money online but I find out later that this is nothing more than a sleazy marketing tactic used to take my money.

As I started engaging with a few of the other successful members of this site, I was convinced that this site was the one for me and I was ready to get started.

Contrary To What I Was Told Before, These People Didn’t Tell Me: 

  • I would wake up a millionaire tomorrow morning by simply buying into their system
  • That there was little to no work involved
  • That I would be making money on autopilot
  • That I would need to pay them several thousand to access it

Instead, they told me that this would require lots of time and effort and that I wouldn’t make money right away.

Sounds fair enough right?

I’m no stranger when it comes to hard work and I have worked hard for everything I’ve ever got in life so this didn’t scare me away.

They also told me that I would be building a business and learning how to create a website.

Personally, I have never done either of these things but I’m always keen on learning new skills that will enhance my life so I accepted the challenge.

My First 3 Months

I do have to admit that my first 3 months was the most challenging and there were times that I felt like my brain was going to explode due to information overload.

I was determined to be successful here and I was willing to give this everything I had plus some. There were nights I would pull an all-nighter and make many sacrifices to make this work for me.

There are some days I would work 12-16 hours and I had gone without sleep many times.

In my first 3 months, I made $0 but I wasn’t at all worried and I wasn’t expecting to make money in the short amount of time that I had been here.

But Then Something Happened!!

I had been diligently putting some serious hours in and I was quite proud of everything I had accomplished up to this point and I was learning something new each day.

After around 3 and a half months of hard work, I finally had a breakthrough moment and I made my first online sale.

Yay for me!! lol

It was only $8 but to me, it felt like I won the lottery!

This was a huge milestone for me and it made me feel good to have finally accomplished something I had been yearning to learn my entire life.

All the hard work I had put in was finally starting to pay off and the puzzle pieces were starting to fall into place.

I was also told that once I made my first sale that there would be many others that would follow shortly afterward.

Sure enough, as I continued working on my site and building my business out, the sales continued to trickle in from time to time and eventually I got to the point where I was making money consistently every day.

How Long Did It Take Me To Make My First Thousand Online?

Once I reached the 6-month mark I was able to clear my first thousand dollars online and I’m now earning a full time living plus some from the online efforts.

I’m always looking for additional income sources to add to my income stream and I’m also still learning something new each day.

Take a look at the screenshot below to get a better idea of how long it took me to earn $1,000

My earnings

If you take a closer look and take the time to add this up you’ll see that this number is closer to the $2,000 mark and I was about to do this in about 6 months time.

I also want you to take a look at these figures!

Does anything else stand out to you guys?

Notice how each month my earnings continued to increase?

This is due to the long and stressful hours that I put in day in and day out along with all the hard work that I put in to make this work for me.

Before you even think about earning your first $1 online, it’s vital that you understand how the process of making money online works and have a general idea of what you’ll be doing.

Making money online isn’t all that difficult and trust me you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to do this either.

    I just made my first $1,000 online from CPA Marketing.
    Hard work, dedication, step by step plan, perseverance,… That’s what we need to succeed in this game.

      Awesome Job Jin!!

      I have just now started up CPA marketing a few weeks ago and I’ve already got a few leads.

      I can’t wait to make my first $1,000 through CPA marketing like you have so that I can add this to the many other multiple income streams that I already have coming in.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experience that you’ve had in the online marketing industry with everyone here today.

    It’s pretty crazy how my life was very similar to yours and I couldn’t help but leave a comment. Just like you, I was in an MLM (actually like 3 of them) and I have fallen for many scams in my journey to making money and ultimately doing this whole online thing full-time.

    To make it in the online world it is going to take work and determination and like you said, after that first sale there will be more to follow. Like the good old saying goes, “when it rains, it pours”.

    Affiliate marketing is a wonderful thing, so if you’re still trying to be the best recruiter in the world with your MLM or whatever it is that you’re doing, you definitely need to give this a try.

    Once you hit that first $1,000 you will need to pinch yourself. Then comes $5,000, then $10,000, and so on. Who do you know makes $10k/month in the real world? Not many people that’s for sure.

    Thanks for the read man and I hope you’re having a great 2017 so far.

      I agree that it is pretty crazy how our pasts are so similar and I really want to thank you for dropping by today John.

      I was involved in so many crazy MLM’s in my time and have got scammed multiple times from people who claim to hold the secret to making money online.

      I also agree that in order to reach any kind of monumental success in the online world it’s going to require a great deal of hard work, motivation and the drive for you to see your first $1,000 online.

      Once you hit this mark, like you said $5k, $10k and even $20k is possible if you’re willing to work for it.

      Thank you so much for dropping by today John and sharing your experience with everyone on how you was able to earn your first $1,000 online.

      I hope that you are also having a very bright and successful 2017 so far.

      If it’s not a scam then why do u have take a course to give you money and to try make money?

      1. Scott Newkirk Post author

        Hi Kim,

        In order to learn how to make money online, you need to have some kind of courses that will provide you with the proper training and show you how all of this works.

        You aren’t taking a course to give you money, but rather learning how to build your own business doing something that you’re passionate about. This is better known as affiliate marketing and has been around for over 20 years now.

        This is definitely not a scam but instead one of the most lucrative business models around. If you’re willing to put in the hard work and dedication this really will start to pay off for you.

        Thank you so much for stopping by Kim and I hope this has helped clear things up for you and answered your question.

        If you have ever had a slight interest in learning how to make money online then you should seriously check out WA and see what they can do for you.

        To Your Success Online
        ~Your Friend, Scott~
