How to start making sales if you have no income proof and no prior success?

Last Update: August 10, 2020

Are you a newbie in the making money online niche ? Then you need to read this post.

Even if you're an experienced member, you can still gain value from it.

So, yeah go on reading this post as well.

I"ve seen many members here at Wealthy Affiliate ask this question : How to start making sales if you have no proof and no prior success?...

That's why I decided to write a post about that.

The reality is people fall into the trap of thinking that the only way to get results is by showing that you already have results.

And yes, being able to show off your success does help, but it actually isn't the most important thing.

See the only reason showing off your success is helpful is that it gives people a reason to pay attention to you and trust you.

They think "If he has done it before, maybe he can help me do it."...

But the good news is that this is not the only way to get people to listen to you or to trust you.

Believe it or not, it isn't even the best way...

There is something else that is even more powerful...

In fact, without this, all the income proof in the world wouldn't work.

I bet you've guessed what it is.


Not just your top tips on how to believe in yourself for example Haha.

I mean actually teaching people something they desperately want to know.

This is the key.

This is how you break in.

Learn how to do something that other people in your niche want to know how to do. Then teach it to them.

It can absolutely be anything.

How to build a website, How to use keywords research, how to use an email autoresponder, how to make thumbnails for YouTube, etc etc etc

You get the idea.

Now that you have people's attention, it's time to show off the results of OTHER PEOPLE.

Find some testimonials from people who are customers or members of whatever you're promoting.

For example if you were to promote WA, you can use members testimonials here.

Use those until you have an amazing success story of your own.

In fact, keep using them.

People will always care about other people's results more than yours. That's a fact.

Nobody actually cares about your results.

What they care about is whether you can show them something that works.


You have thought them something and proven that it works by showing them testimonials from other people.

At this point, they have everything they need to make a purchase decision.

Nobody will even notice that you didn't mention any success story of your own.

Because they actually don't care.

That's how you break in, folks.

Anyone can do this.

The only thing standing in your way is your own mind telling you a bunch of stories about how you can't be successful because you aren't already successful.

Screw that.

Just do it.

Really hope you've gained value from this article.

Until next time, take care.
