I am so happy that yesterday I finally made my 1st Significant StudioPress Affiliate Sale to a Friend. I was not able to buy a porshe or even a yugo with the cash but compared to other efforts I was very happy with the commission of just one sale.
As many of you know I switched over to the the Genesis Framework (affiliate link) a few months ago and I am already getting a return on investment.
Following @chrisbrogan’s advice I have been able to focus on creating content and be less hands on regarding the design side.
Today I had the privilege to see what an affiliate sale can feel like. After spending a bit more than 2 years on trying to get my first Google AdSense Check I was able to in just weeks reach almost the same amount of profit by promoting the Genesis Framework as an affiliate.
My friend @julito77 (which I thank many times) was my first customer.
Many people talk about making money on the internet in an easy way but it really is about building relationships.
I have been interacting with @julito77 for a few years. For those of you who see my #FollowFriday’s get translated to #vivaviernes, @julito77 is the reason why I use the term he created the hashtag.
This demonstrates once again that if you want to make money online you have to make sure your create a relationship first.
What type of customer (online and offline) do you make the most profitable sales too? A stranger? or an Acquaintance?
For those of you that one to see how effective having a premium wordpress theme is. Take look at what we created in a few hours for VegLatino.com
