$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

    May be you are just rushing it spending all those money. You may have to take a break think over what you doing wrong.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
