$150.00-$200.00 A Day....How Do You Do It?

by 45 comments
Hi Warriors,

I am looking for some good honest feedback on this, but first here is my story. I got started in IM October 26, 2006 and have yet to find my groove in IM. My biggest problem I feel is that I don't stick with something long enough to see any results, and determine if what I am doing is correct. This is a trait of my ADHD (no excuse) I have been in no less than 8 different programs, 3 of which have been high ticket items where I have spent upwards of $10,000 in each of them just to get started, let alone market them. That being said I have been focusing on affiliate marketing now for about the last year, and have also spent around $6,000 on courses on so on. I have learned a lot and have the fundamentals just a problem executing them.

That being said I have set out a goal for myself to achieve in the next 30 days. That goal is to earn between $150-$200 a day. I know it possible I just have to set my mind to it. I am looking for a path I can follow to achieve this goal. Any comments on this or feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for someone in the form of a mentor, coach, or guiding light. Thanks for you time warriors, and I look forward to any feedback.

Regards,

Jamie Kochan

    OMG talk a bout crashing and burning. If you had spent all that money on buying articles you would be a rich man.

    Sorry that didn't help..but I can't understand how people can just throw so much money....you need to focus and work your ass off.

      Um...not really. There is the matter of knowing what to do with the articles.

      The problem isn't that he bought a few high ticket items...it's that he never committed to following through with them.

      I would start with small goals:

      Focus on earning an average of $1 a day, then $5, then $10, THEN focus on earning enough to cover some of the utility bills for the month. THEN, focus on covering all the bills for the month. ... Now we are cooking with gasoline! : )

      If you know how to manage and maintain your own site, you already know more than enough to go out and make your own success. Sly Stallone says: "The world meets nobody half way. If you want it, you gotta' take it." You know what needs to be done, now go out and do it!

      No more buying and making other people rich. No more WF for you!

    Oh my god! That is a lot of cash.

    If I were you I’d spend less on IM products. Use the time to read more in these forums, and in the War room. Develop an approach and stick to it. Use some of the cash you’ve saved on WSOs to outsource as much of what you do as possible, so you are spending your precious time on tweaking ideas to make money out of them.

    If you want to make $200 guaranteed then the easiest way is to get a full time job! You can still use evenings and weekends to develop your IM ideas. Once they take off then you can jack in the day job and go full time.

    All those money would've been better spent on CPC, PPV or media buys
    campaigns and instead of burning money you would've had stable recurring
    income streams.

    If you're going the affiliate route, I recommend CPC with yahoo or bing,
    CPV with mediatraffic, media buys - buysellads or adbrite.

    You need 2 things .. going wide ... launching a lot of campaigns & tracking
    to identify the winners.

    You will probably lose some money in the beginning, but tracking will reveal
    real hidden diamonds who'll make up for all the losses.

    I have campaigns where I spend $3 to make $20 commission (granted there's
    not a lot of traffic in that niche) but it ads up quickly when you have 30-40
    profitable campaigns.

    The key is in taking action.

      I would say that if you have spent so much money on courses, then in there somewhere must be a nugget of gold. Maybe you could use a section from each course you have signed up to and seek out your own little niche.

      It’s true, you can find just about everything you need here on this forum, however, I would recommend you do not discard the products you have already paid for, I would bet that there is money to be made there…

      Take a break for a while and then come back to them, you never know your initial interest my be ignited again…

    I used to have the same problem of not being focused.

    I had to step back and work on my mindset and then focus my energy on one thing, commit to that UNTIL I was making money.

    read my free report. I hope it helps.

      If you need to make some instant money (or almost instant) I would recommend freelancing a little bit - writing articles for clients, either public, semi-private or private. I spend my days doing that part-time and doing IM stuff part-time.

      And perhaps cut down on the spending... Ernie's probably right. Even if you didn't get rich paying for articles, you might be a lot further. Actually, if you want to cut out spending altogether, write your own articles for IM and start driving traffic SOMEWHERE. Pick a niche and stick with it for a while - two niches at a time at most, at least until you start getting some results.

      I've heard of a program called FocusBooster - I haven't used it, but I think it's free. You might try it just to stay on one project long enough to see results.

      Hope that helps!

    Affiliate marketing is a great business model, and I would suggest that you browse around this forum, and look at only FREE sources with regards to affiliate marketing. Many people sell these "business opportunities," and most of them are not even worth half of what they charge with them.

    Stop spending any more money. All that you need to know, you can learn from this forum. Start taking action and stay focused. It takes time to get result and don't jump from one thing to another. Rolling stones gather no moss.
    • Profile picture of the author Sara Young
      I suggest you pick one of the courses you bought and stick to it. Make sure it's one that offers good customer support.

      Then when you get stuck or frustrated - ask for help.

    I am sure the path you are looking for is in the materials you have already purchased. By your own admission you have not stuck with something long enough to see results so it doesn't matter if someone here offers you are "new" path to follow, it will not work if you don't work it. Go back and re-read some of the courses you already have and implement the strategies until they work.

      Hello Warriors,

      Thank so much for the feedback you have provided thus far. The one thing is with the high ticket items they never really provided any real IM training, just the opportunity to earn large commissions for those who marketed correctly. I am sure you all know the products I am referring to. Regardless I realize there are a million ways to market, just got to focus on one at a time.

    My biz "model" is to sell low cost Information Products, avg at 14.95.

    I sell about 2000-3000 with each "launch"...and aim for 4 to 5 per year.

    I have a SMALL list, very responsive, some have been on it over a decade.

    Keep it simple to get started, I believe in MAKING money first, before you spend it.

    But, hey, we all get to do what we want.

    Good luck with your high cost investments.

    You can spend money, if you spend it smart. Wink and Grow rich book says "give it and you shall receive it". So if you spend this money smart, to improve what you are doing, its well spend.
    If you want to save everything, then keep this in mind...you spend everyday bases. Food, maybe car, social life. This money is gone. You will never see it.

    How to stay focused? You need to have a vision. If you don't know what to do, or not having a plan. You will fail. You need to keep going. Don't stop. Its like walking. If you stop, you are not moving. Its all about your mind. Your mindset. You walk, because your mind gives you orders.

    http://www.warriorforum.com/make-mon...leon-hill.html

    Read this. It is a very very good book. Another is "Wink and Grow Rich" by Roger Hamilton. I don't think its for free, but amazon sells it for $29.


    Both will help you to understand, how to set your mind etc.

    Wow that is alot of money. What i suggest is that you pick one method (affiliate, list building, CPA, blogging etc) and stick with it consistently.

    Make sure you understand the process of which ever path you choose before implementing it. It may be a hit/miss thing so don't give up on the first try.

    I found having an action plan everyday helped me to focus on what must i do. eg. today I going to write article / blog post.

    Instead of buying more courses/ebooks, you should probably focus on looking through some of the materials that you have bought. I believe some of them would be useful while others might be junk. Try filtering out who provides sound advice and stick with it.

    And as always take action. By doing something will be your first step to success.

    All the best.

    If you have spent nothing less than $36,000 (THIRTY SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS) on about four different programs, with little or no result, and you have not fainted, I salute you.
    You have heard it all for now- MAKE A DELIBERATE DECISION TO SPEND $0 for now.
    Reappraise your plans, desires/expectations plus your innate gifting/talents/passion and skills. What is the ONE THING YOU WILL WANT PROJECTED WITH YOUR PERSON
    IN THE NEXT ONE YEAR, FIVE YRS AND MAYBE TEN? Or put differently, what do you enjoy doing for others that give you JOY? What can you so much focus on that makes you forget every other issue in life?
    Questions like these can help you know where you ought to be today. Otherwise, you
    will keep moving from one unfinished project to another. When you finally settle down,
    put your pen to paper in commitment THAT YOU WILL STAY IN THERE UNTIL YOU SEE
    A PREDETERMINED RESULT
    . GOODLUCK

    Like the Nike Ad 'Just do it' and dont get anxious of if you fail.Things need not be absolutely perfect
  • Profile picture of the author kayelex
    Alot has been covered here already. Focus on one thing. Break things up into smaller, attainable tasks. Also, take a look at some of the products you have bought. Can you reverse engineer how they marketed the products? Obviously they worked because you bought them. Can you duplicate their traffic tricks and copy writing tricks?

    Ever consider maybe Internet marketing isn't for you maybe you're just a fan.

    I mean seriously consider it think of it this way they are football players and there are people that dislike to learn about football and cheer on the players. football players especially the professional ones have a certain derived that pushes them past failure and it's not really about football became it's more about football the activity.

    Maybe you just like to sit back and learn as much as you can there's nothing wrong with that. Lets be honest with ourselves here for a minute and think about it.

    Hi Jamie
    I was in a similar situation to yours some time ago. I spent thousands of pounds to buy different products just to learn the ropes. Unfortunately they never tell you the whole story and there are usually big and vital bits missing. There are also many different ways "to skin a cat" and you easily can get lost trying this and that. Then I decided to find a good and trustworthy mentor. I searched here and there and spoke to some people and eventually found an excellent one. He keeps his students straigh and focused on the right things leading to the planned goal ie success and money. I know that the money paid is worth every penny.

    Best regards

    First you have to cure the disease of Multi Tasking and Destracting yourself. I would recommend Wake up productive from Eben Pagan as a medicine. Eben is Guru of the Guru's in IM

    You said you had many high ticket courses, then your only problem is distraction. Get rid of it and you will see results within few weeks.

    You do have to focus. I don't believe anyone should have to wait long periods of time to make money. When you start with a product that is in demand, big ticket or not, and you put it before the people who want it, (targeted traffic), then you get response. You can start small to perfect this system and then duplicate it to increase your income. People love for you to bring them something valuable and for you to lay out solutions for them, which should be the focus of your sales page and articles.

    It's really not that hard - it just takes time and focus on a niche.

    Focus on;

    - Keywords
    - Domains selection
    - Content
    - Backlinks

    Outsource your tasks that are time consuming - i.e content generation.

    Add content to your sites and to other sites linking to your site.

    Build quality.

    Then monetize your site and finally,

    be patient.
