How craigslist turned me from job seeker to online entrepreneur

  1. 1. corbintel.com http://www.corbintel.com/how-craigslist-turned-me-from-job-seeker-to-online-entrepreneur/ Cory Spanko Prosperity Living With Corbin How Craigslist Turned Me From Job Seeker to Online Entrepreneur Posted by Cory Spanko on May 17th, 2015 How Craigslist Turned Me From Job Seeker to Online Entrepreneur Man was I naive when I first discovered the world of internet marketing! I mean, you could have told me the moon was made out of cheese and I would’ve believed it! It didn’t take very long, though, for me to pull my head out of my a$$ and realize was required to be successful in internet marketing, or any business for that matter! So before I share how the heck to make your internet marketing business work, I’ll share the hilariously sad story of how I got started in this industry! I was actually job hunting on craigslist. I had just completed my masters degree at Northern Arizona University. I was searching the Spokane, Wa. area because my wife and I have been dreaming of moving out of this godforsaken desert and living in Coeur d’ Alene, Id. after falling in love with the place from visiting her parents. So here I am searching for openings at the local colleges to pick up some part-time teaching gigs. I don’t even remember the subject line exactly, but one ad in particular caught my attention. It had absolutely nothing to do with teaching or colleges. I just remember the ad said something about how crazy easy this little system works to make money online part time! How fast can you say hook, line and sinker? So I clicked on the link, was taken to a capture page, entered my email address (I actually created a second gmail account because of my fear of a bombardment of spam to my business email account), and then watched a 45 minute video presentation! It was a system called Instant Payday Network, developed by Jeff Buchanan who is actually a great guy and a top producer in Empower Network. In hindsight, Instant Payday Network was (is) a great system for beginners because it teaches the very basics of internet and affiliate marketing and makes it pretty simple to earn commissions online. In the video, though, Jeff walked through his process of how to simply post some ads on craigslist and then sit back
  2. 2. and watch the money pour in! So I posted, and I waited…and waited…and waited. I think it was about 3 weeks of posting every other day on craigslist before I finally made my first sale and commission, and I realized that either this guy in the video was totally full of crap, or I was missing something! So it turns out I was missing something (nothing new there). I missed the part where Jeff explained that craigslist was just one of several ways to generate traffic to my website! I soon learned that I needed to incorporate some important, but easy, traffic-getting strategies that could be mostly automated, and that while free strategies were ideal, I needed to be prepared to invest in some paid advertising in order to scale up my traffic numbers! So that’s how I got my start in this beloved industry, and proof that you CAN catch the attention of people not even looking to get into work-from-home related opportunities with a simple, well-placed and well-written ad! Now that I’ve had some time to educate myself on internet marketing, I couldn’t be happier with the amount of growth I’ve enjoyed this past year. Going from scraping a few commissions together to make $200 a month to now averaging $3000 has got this marketer pumped! Check out some of my income proofs below: This pic represents my first two weeks in iPAS2. (Keep an eye on the “All-Time” earnings number throughout this sequence): November 29th, 2014 and over $700 in one week. This one is pretty self-explanatory. All-Time earnings continues to grow!
  3. 3. My best month in iPAS2 earned me over $6800! Woo hoo! May 17, 2015: Crossing $20,000 All-Time !!! (in just 8 months):
  4. 4. While these are certainly not the best results – many iPAS2 members have earned much more in much less time – I am perfectly content for these reasons: I only put in one to two hours per day I still operate my commercial real estate brokerage full-time I spend next to nothing on paid advertising and still get plenty of automated traffic from free marketing strategies The system does all the heavy lifting for me: all the telling and selling, commission tracking, etc. My only job is to bring people in the door! My very realistic projection is that my $3000/month income will grow to $10,000 within the next 6 months. When this happens, you can bet there will be a big celebration in our house. We will not only celebrate the milestone achieved, but also the fact that a new journey will begin to reach $20,000 per month! However, what is probably most rewarding is seeing former team members continue to see my consistent results, and decide to rejoin and begin transforming their lives with focus and determination to achieve similar results!
