It was over 13 years ago…
I was a broke college kid in my dorm room…
And something amazing happened…
I Created My Very First Product & Generated Over $250,000
It definitely didn’t happen overnight…
In fact, it was a long road to get there.
You see, back when I was in college, I spent a lot of time on an Internet Marketing forum. I tried a lot of different things trying to make money online, but nothing seemed to be working. I was about ready to give up…
But then, I was fortunate to get some great advice from people in that very forum that helped me immensely on my Digital Publishing journey. A big thanks to those who helped me along the way (and of course, those who still do)…
Watch my video in this blog post where I share more of my story and the piggyback method I used to create my first product.

Once I cracked the code I have to say, it was surprisingly easy!
The product I created revolved around teaching people how to setup and use a specific type of software. But first, I had to learn the software myself. I even consulted for others on it before creating my product around it.
I found a forum for this software:
- Customers were looking for help and asking questions
- I was able to identify problems these customers needed me to solve
I built my consulting service to help these software users:
- I became a software affiliate (I even offered a special bonus with free consultation and gave out my phone number and email for people who purchased through my link)
- I began to sell consulting service separately
- I sold so many I had to create a product because I was just getting too many referrals (I know, I know, a good problem to have, but I didn’t want to be working like a dog)
I created a step-by-step tutorial to solve the problem:
- I got permission from the software company to use their name
- I used my consulting experience to build a video tutorial series
- I sold about 500 units at $500 each = $250,000
That’s it… there’s a rundown of the process I took. But really, here’s a quick recap of the steps…
