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

Profile picture of the author Jamie Kochan by Jamie Kochan Posted: 06/22/2010
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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 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.

    Amazing - with that kind of money you must have found a number of good courses. How about trying to implement just one of the many good courses that you ought to have?

    As long as you can differentiate what sounds legitimate and what does not, you should be able to decide which one single of them to implement. And then just go ahead with the implementation.

    And by the way, use some of this huge wealth to buy services rather than products - for example, SEO services that may bring you close to the top in Google as long as you have started off making a single website !!

    You cant go wrong writing high quality targeted articles for good keywords and then building backlinks to the articles.

    Over time this activity will move your articles on to the first page of google depending on the competition in the niche.

    Then you have a high quality piece of content sitting on the first page for a good keyword with a link directly to your site.

    Repeat for each high quality, medium competition keyword in the niche and you're golden!

    P.S. Try using an open loop to conclude your article for vastly better click throughs to your site. Instead of giving your article a full conclusion restating what the reader learned and so on, you give solid content up until the end. Then briefly close the article without a full conclusion.

    This is followed by a quick benefit rich authors box. I like to start the authors box with the word "next". This way the article ends without a formal close, then they see the word next and their eyes follow. Then naturally they'll click on the link if you have a few compelling reasons to do so.

    I have the same problem lack of focus. I would reccomend cancelling all of the "Guru's" newsletters. You can easily get distracted that way. I have finally become numb on the "Product Launch Hype."

    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.

    Change your mindset from being a "customer" to being a "marketer".

    For the amount of money you've spent you probably have several blueprints that would earn income if you would choose ONE and follow it all the way through.

    Don't expect any one method to provide every ounce of advice you need as you may have to spend time here and on google looking up things you don't know how to do and learning to do them.

    Don't focus on "$150-200 a day in 30 days." It's not productive if you haven't yet earned anything after a year or two.

    Instead, focus on earning your first dollar - then your first $100 and build from there. Don't read sales pages - don't worry about new launches - use what you have and work one thing until you know it inside and out and are earning with it.

    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.
