An Internet Marketing Success Story

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.13 (4 Votes)

Online success stories are often riddled with exaggerations, half-truths, or even lies. It's amazing the lengths people will go to in order to convince others that they are the real deal, a guru, the one to follow, so that they might part with some cash to buy their product. 

Success stories like this annoy me, for they damped the real success stories, and make people jaded. There are plenty of real people earning real money online just through hard work, yet these scammers will have the whole Internet doubted before too long.

In order to show people otherwise, I've decided to include a little success story of my own. This is not something that will wow many people, as the money is not huge. However, it demonstrates that there is legitimacy online, and will give hope to some of those who have  online income aspirations  of their own.

I just got back from a short trip to Thailand. I live in Asia myself, so it was easy to make a quick hop. I stayed in Bangkok (5 nights) and Phuket (3 nights). More on this later.

I started building websites and trying to make money through internet marketing about December 2012, and slowly over the first half of 2013 i have seen a bit of success and incomes increasing. In May I earned over $1,200 USD, which I felt was an incredible amount. A large part of that money came from a one-off sale of one of my early websites though, so I knew it wouldn't necessarily always be that high.

One thing that has always attracted me to Internet Marketing was not these big, overnight income stories that are littered around, but more the ability to work from anywhere. I didn't exactly want to spend my whole time in Thailand writing and working away, but I did take my laptop with me and check some stats, make some updates, and keep in the loop with my websites.

I thought it was pretty cool that I could go out exploring in the afternoon, then come home and write an article or two in the evening before I went to bed.

I made sure not to overdo it though. i focused on my holiday first, and just did a little bit of writing to keep momentum and consistency of my sites up. I didn't spend a long time fretting about this or that, I just wrote a quick blog post for an hour or so and got on with my holiday.

Despite only writing one or two articles to each website once, or twice a week during my trip, I still managed to earn enough online to pay for my Phuket hotel (and a little left over).

I thought this was incredible, because it means that as I go forward with my online business, I will be able to increase this amount, hopefully to the point where I can work from anywhere, as long as I have a laptop and internet connection.

As you can see, this isn't a huge "wow he is so successful" story, but it is a "look at the small things you can achieve and work to make them larger" story.

Good luck with your own endeavors!

A better world with child sponsorship

Child sponsorship enables a common person in an evolved country to aid a child from a poorly developed part of the world until he can become independent. This aid consists in money, clothes, moral support and anything that can make a difference. This practice is usually conducted through a child sponsorship organization which deals with money transfers and contacts between sponsors and children. Though they are sometimes blamed for creating cultural gaps between children of the 3rd world, the child sponsorship organizations are the ones that strive to give a helping hand when everyone else has turned their backs to the fate of the unfortunate.
