Up for a challenge?

on Jan2 2010

Hey everybody,

Hope you are all well.

I just found out I made my first ever online sale!!!!!

And now I want to help others do the same…

2010 others in fact…

Let me explain…

The second half of last year I felt like i was banging my head
against a brick wall, it was as if no matter what I did: I couldn’t make
that first sale. What made it even more infuriating was that I
had sworn to myself that 2009 would be the year I “made it”

Now, at first “making it” meant “making millions”, as the year progressed
that became “making enough to quit my job” and then down to
“just making ONE FLIPPING SALE!!”

So, I spent the New Year feeling a little dejected – I hadn’t achieved
the sort of online success I wanted… nowhere near it in fact!

Not even one piddly little sale.


After just checking my affiliate stats , I am
absolutely overjoyed to see that I actually made my first online sale
on Dec 29th! Made it with a full 2 days to go!!

See – I genuinely had stopped believing it was possible…


Oh no :-)

See, as it is the start of a new decade and we’re all full of enthusiasm
and resolutions – I want to invite you, my faithful readers to be
a part of something that’s going to take the IM world by storm, this year.

Lets set ourselves a massive challenge, and (in achieving it) become IM superstars!

See, now I know how good it feels to make that first online sale… I want to help
as many other people as I can to get there too. My target is 2010 people
by Dec 31st 2010.

That’s right, I want to help two thousand and ten people make their first sale
online by the end of the year. And I don’t want to charge them a penny, either.

Yep, no charge – free service.

Sounds crazy doesn’t it? But just imagine how much publicity we can generate
if we can help 2010 people start to turn their lives around…

So – you are either in one of two camps right now, you’ve either made money online
or you haven’t.

If you have – GREAT! Help me to help others by offering something to
help them – a free interview, a free ebook, a free system or just a few hints and tricks.

Obviously in return you will get the publicity from being associated with this and also
we can promote any other products and services you wish to sell.

Just leave a comment offering to help, include your email and I’ll get in touch :-)

If you haven’t yet made your first online sale – GREAT!

Sign up for the challenge by posting a comment below and dont forget
to start your challenge by putting your name and email address in the box
on the top left of the screen and I can start sending you your free training

SWEET, eh?

Peace and good luck to everyone,

Phil Ainsworth

    Hey Phil

    Well done. I hope it continues to go well for you, I joined an affiliate programme with an adult website a few years ago & I got really excited when one person joined up within two days. Yay. But I never got more than that.

    It’s something I’m tempted to go back to at some point but I think I’ll make a brand new website for it.

    See you soon

    Hey Phil

    Congrates I also made my first sale this month. We must stick together and look at the positives. Look at your twitter growth over 22000, I am just over 3500 twitter followers.

    This is our year 2010 when our hard work and head banging finally works for us.

    Kerie :-D

    Hi Phil, a healthy, happy and successful new year to you! I really hope your success accelerates! I also used to sell via affiliate programs. what I noticed was:
    1. you need lots of visotors to your site to make one single sale
    2. you need the right subject and adequate parnter-programs
    3. you need a straightforward site with no distraction from buying

    with these 3 points fulfilled it was quite easy to make sales online. but to earn enough for a living, you also need very good conditions with the operating companies.
    I hope these tipps help you and the other affiliates to advance business.
    with best wishes from berlin.

    Phil: How are you? Doing great it seems with your 2010 gola and all that! Hey this is so cool I also ust made my first solid online coin 2 weeks ago a $200 commish–shweet. Kind of embarassed to admit I had kind of left things on autopilot during the winter holidays but what a jolt to get me back on top of things!
    Hope Dean picks you for his guest blogger (unless, of course he picks me!)

    Phil what’s up man! I’m glad I got your email and glad to see you’re doing well as well as seeing some of the other DH students here still keeping on.

    I pretty much abandoned my main site & been working on other niches. I guess I should update what I’m learning along the way….

    Looking forward to the interview w/ Dean totally. I also like your very achievable hook of helping 2,010 people getting first sale in 2010 good job man!
