First Sale!!!

First Sale!!!

One thing that we should all celebrate is when someone we care about makes their very first sale.

Please help me in congratulating Carolyn Holzman in making her very first sale in just a few days...

Below is email that I just received from her:

Lance and Robert -

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I'm been following your training for facebook fan
pages I started two fan pages - one for a sports
team and one for a celebrity.

The sports one has 500 fans the celebrity has 350 fans.

I posted a link on the celebrity to a product on amazon -


Do you realize two things happened this week
that I've been wanting since I went to my first IM seminar
- over 2 years ago!!!!

A list
A sale

And I didn't need a website -
an email responder -
seo -

thank you!


Congratulations Carolyn

We are all VERY proud of you!!

Leave your cheers for Carolyn below...

    Hey Carolyn, that is great news!

    I knew you could do it. All you needed to do was find a plan (build a list and promote offers they would be interested in) and implement it.

    I’m 1000% EXTREMELY proud of you!

      Robert – small world, you were there at my first seminar – AM in Dallas in 2009 March. I’m smiling uncontrollably since I checked my amazon report last night – thank you for keeping me on your list too!

    That’s fantastic Carolyn!

    I don’t remember the first person who showed me how to ride a bike, or who taught me how to add, but I remember the the person who showed me how to build a list, and I remember my first sale!

    Here’s to your future of thousands of subscribers and sales!

    Well done Carolyn. I know how you feel…I made my first EVER Clickbank sale a couple of months ago but can’t access the money due to their restrictions on new sales, so it’s stuck there for a while until I make news sales! Oh the irony of it all lols lols πŸ™‚

    Despite this hiccup…it’s a lovely feeling to make that first sale isn’t it Carolyn. Celebrate it…you deserve it.

    That’s great! Well done πŸ™‚

    Compared to that feeling you used to get while you were busying yourself with trying to learn the xyz of internet marketing, the feeling that you just got is amazing! Notice how easy it felt too – when you take action and really put a good offer in front of warmed-up traffic, they do all the work for you.

    Nice work Carolyn … I can remember when I sold my first product on eBay and it was so exciting! Or sending out my first email broadcast to a tiny list and hardly sleeping at night dreaming of waking up to a few hundred bucks in my paypal account :-), it still feels the same and I hope you find more success with fan pages!

    This just shows both how powerful Facebook is, and how anything is possible with a bit of perseverence.

    Well done Carolyn, and thanks Lance for sharing this bit of success.

    Congratulations! I remember that feeling as I made my first sale a few months ago. Since then, sales have been extremely slow for me. Part of my issue is that I haven’t “asked” for the sale so much to avoid being “pushy”. But that’s all gonna change.

    Your success on facebook is a testament to the power of Facebook and internet marketing in general.

    The stuff works… and we need only step up, cast out our nets, and let the sales come.

    Congrats again!

    Video squeeze pages may be a robust email list construction instrument if they were not such a trouble to make.
