The Real Story Behind My First $17.76…

First sale from Clickbank


Woo hoo… I got my first sale on Clickbank!

Trust me, your first sale is often the most memorable one.

You will feel as if you are on ‘cloud nine’ the minute you hear your phone go

‘ding’, that is the notification that you’ve made a sale.

First sale$17.76


I have not shared the full story behind my first sale online before so here is the whole ‘enchilada’!

This sale came two months after my coaching session.

It was one of the best sale ever made because it came at one of the busiest times of my life when I was

  • busy with relocation of my office.
  • With new product launch at work
  • Fulfillment of existing projects
  • Prior to that , preparing for a major Chinese festival, Lunar New Year

This is what I consider passive income. Income that comes in whether you are busy, out shopping or having fun.

But things were not that rosy three years ago.

Struggles online

The things that made it for me about three years back was my first Google Adsense check.

It was a check that looks like this

Adsense first cheque


I have already cashed the original check but yes, my first check was US$100.00 from Google.

This cheque can be considered as my first blessing or’ curse’.

This was the cheque that set me on the path towards starting an online business.

Thereafter, I really believed that one can make passive income online and thus began my quest to start an online business to accumulate more passive income.

I bought eBooks and courses after courses, only to be disappointed. I have tried

  • Bum marketing that is making money using articles and having your affiliate links embedded within your articles.
  • Squidoo lens but had 6 out of 10 lens banned which I do not know why.
  • Using PPC to redirect to my affiliate links
  • Craigslist marketing
  • Paying for tele-coaching online.

But none of these was sustainable. The income either came as a trickle or none at all.

I was ready to’ throw in the towel’ in frustration until I saw this

You know there is the saying that “when the student is ready, the teacher appears.”

This couldn’t be more apt to describe my experience then.

I attended the preview and realized the reason why my income online was not sustainable.

That was because I did not really build up an ‘asset’ online. I had no subscribers. Hence my income was also unsustainable as I had no one to sell to create repeat sales.Everything that was done was a one-time effort and was not sustainable.

Why Jaz Lai’s coaching

What really strike me about Jaz Lai’s coaching was that his principles were tried and tested.

His system is simple and sustainable.

The emphasis was on

  • Building a list of subscribers
  • Driving traffic
  • Converting visitors to buyers
  • Rinse & repeat.

It was clearly a simple system that taught you how to create your own ‘assets’ online, that is building a list of subscribers.

Most big corporations such as Apple, Google even my neighborhood TVB rental store collected a database of its customers and sent us regular offers.

Jaz was teaching what other big corporations do and practice on a daily basis but he leveraged on the Internet to do this. In addition to this, this is what I really liked about Jaz and his team.

Walks his Talk

Jaz is a person who walks his talk. He tried every strategy that he coaches. He culls the best to present it in his course. I have tried his strategies and every one of them has given me more subscribers, more traffic and money in the bank. He has various strategies you can try but he is able to organize the information in a way that does not overwhelm.

3-days to an online business

Another thing that I really like about the workshop is the practice approach.

On Day 1, I walked in with my laptop and broadband connection and on Day 3, I have a

  • Fully functional website
  • Squeeze page to collect subscribers names & emails
  • Sales funnel for follow-ups sales, what Jaz refers to MR FUs system.
  • Plan to build my online business


Follow-Up Coaching & mentoring

the end is just the beginning

The end is just the beginning for many. Jaz has follow-up workshops and coaching. You can ask his team any questions you may have questions you may have in the process of building your web business after the course.

If you implement the strategies that he shares during the follow-up training, you will experience a spike in the sales, subscribers, traffic or all three. His strategies always give very good ROI (return-on-investment).

In addition, the private membership at Facebook helps too as we support and encourage one another in building our online businesses.


Timeless Wisdom in Online Marketing & Business

Jaz Lai’s strategies work online & in the ‘offline’ world as well. Listen closely and pay close attention to what he & his team teaches and you will learn timeless gems that you can apply in your business.

I applied one strategy to my current line of work and had sales increase by 50 %. In addition to that customer satisfaction was at an all-time high.


Have the system scale your business

If you want to learn how to have systems work for you whether online or in your ‘offline’ business, ICE is a workshop you cannot miss. Jaz strategies are simple and effective. He teaches you to have systems work and run your business instead of you being the proverbial ‘cog-in-the-wheel’ trying to tie everything together. If you want a business that works without you, ICE is the course.


After that first memorable sale, more to come and you look at the screenshots below.

My experience is not an isolated case. Many of my course mates from the workshop have gone on to make sales, some have managed to quit their jobs after three months.

You too can create the same results for yourself with the right coaching and support from Jaz & his team.
