How To Make $3,000+ Per Month Quickly...

by 174 replies
If I had to start all over again, here's what I'd
do to make 3k+ per month very quickly online.

It's just me, but this is the way I'd do it:

First, I believe the quickest way to get higher
on the income food chain is to take your
current assets and leverage them with other
people's assets in a win-win manner.

I would look at my strengths and weaknesses,
current resources, all areas of assets I have
right in front of me and work with what I've got.

So, if I did not have much money to invest...
or a big list already.. or contacts... or any of
that, I'd look at my skills and abilities (strengths)
first. And often, my strengths are what I enjoy
doing anyway.

If I look at my strengths (assets) I'd find I have
strengths in writing, copywriting, presentations,
product creation, conversions, advertising/traffic,
speaking and developing key relationships.

Yours might be different. My weakness is clearly
technical, amongst other things.

Therefore, what I'd do is most likely use writing or
copywriting to strike deals with others who are
already up there on the income food chain. I'd
find win-win deals with people who already have
a big list, a big reach, current customers, fans,
a following, etc.

These people can create income out of thin air
with their lists and following (customers).

I would approach them and ask if they'd be
interested in a deal where I do all the work
and they A) promote the product to their lists
and B) get others to promote the product as
affiliates (as long as they felt the product was
high quality and converted well).

My JV partner could put his/her name on the
product and market it as their own. My name
would be on the product too as a co-owner.

I bet all I'd have to do is ask 10 different people
and I'd get a deal that fit well for both of us.
win-win

I'd do all the work, outsource the tech part,
and all the pieces of the puzzle would be covered
at that point.

Launch, and the rest is history.

If it failed and did not do that great, or if the
partner flaked out, or whatever... I'd do it
again with someone else. And again. And again.
Even if it succeeded, I'd do it again.

I bet in less than a year, I'd be at 200k+ worth
of income. Why does this work?

One main rule:

In a rabid marketplace... you cannot possibly
create products fast enough... to keep up with
the buying demand of your market.

Think about that. Lets say marketer Bob has
a list of 100,000 followers. Bob can promote
Sally's product on Monday and Frank's product
on Thursday and people will buy both!

That means, all I've got to do is meet that demand
and create valuable products the market is already
interested in buying.

Here are the main areas of online business:

-- Traffic
-- Conversions
-- Product Creation
-- Technical

All of those can be outsourced too. All of those
are in demand too. All of those can be learned.
All four of those areas are the four key areas
to success online... especially the first two listed.

If you are strong at even just ONE of those areas,
you can make six figures quite quickly if you utilize
your assets and resources best.

In business, it's all about how you play the game...
and the way to play the game and perform well
is how good you are at utilizing your assets!

Someone may be great at copywriting and charge
$15k per salesletter. That person has a great way
to generate income.

However, if that same copywriter uses his/her
skills to land JV's and build strategic alliances
and ventures the RIGHT WAY, that copywriter
can make FAR more money and work FAR less!

One problem I see people have in this market is
they want the path of least resistance. They
refrain from creating products and they focus
on Adsense sites and simple blogs.

There's nothing wrong with that at all, but if
I wanted a quick six figures from starting over
from scratch, I'd find those who are already
there, and strike a deal. That's where a six
figure income can come --- virtually over night!

Respectfully,

Eric Louviere

PS - Did I say make 3k per month quickly in
the subject title? I meant 15k+ quickly. oops

    If you look at the WSO section, you'll
    see that very quickly, the top post/offer
    will drop off page one in a matter of hours.

    That proves...

    You cannot possibly create products fast
    enough to meet the buying demand of
    the marketplace.

      Sorry, Eric, I have to call BS on this.

      The buying demand of the marketplace doesn't actually move the WSO forum. The selling supply does.

      How fast the WSO forum moves does not prove that there is a demand. It only proves that there is a supply. That's like saying "obviously people are buying these products, store shelves are full of them."

      That's people selling these products. If people were buying the products, the shelves would be empty.

      There are three related problems here.

      First, the market is constantly changing. While you are creating your product, the market may change underneath you and make your product less valuable or even worthless. This happened with Zombie Blogging - by the time we got it out into the marketplace, changes were already in the wind at blogger.com, and the method continues to be less and less workable as time goes on. Still works, but the upper bound on income from it keeps dropping.

      Second, the market is inundated with so many products, it's very difficult for them to choose the product that will actually work for them. Right now, you go to the WSO forum, and you'll find one WSO after another about writing books for the Kindle. Most of these WSOs are effectively the same damn WSO, so they're splitting the market - even though there's much demand for "a product about writing for the Kindle," there's no obvious reason to choose this product about writing for the Kindle. I'm currently looking at Cory Friedman's product about it, and it's probably the eighth such product I've got on my hard drive.

      Third, nobody is complaining that products are coming out too slow. They're complaining that there are too many products, the products are too expensive, and the products are all alike. This actually means they do not see the product they want. This is compounded by the issue that newbies, in particular, do not know what they want - they're not experienced or educated enough to tell the pyrite from the gold.

      Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to produce what people want and make it stand out in the marketplace while it is still relevant.

      So the correct answer is to split those two jobs - "produce what people want" and "make it stand out in the marketplace" - between two people who are both good at their job. That allows each of them to concentrate on the job they're good at, which reduces time to market and makes the last part - while it is still relevant - a lot easier.

      So yeah, I agree with your entire OP. Just not with the idea that a fast-moving WSO forum helps prove your point.

      That's why you have to develop and cultivate ways to drive traffic to that WSO.

      My one product is probably buried hundreds of pages back, however, I have hundreds of articles that link strait to it.

      It still makes sales.

    The concept is really fascinating but you'll also need to make a product of a quality which a person with 100,000 subscribers would promote. Having such a huge list means a mark of repeated delivery of quality and he wouldn't wanna feed his list with even "above-average" stuff. It will be a great deal if it goes through smooth but the strings are majorly held by the one with the list. Its you who needs him more and not vice-versa.

      Anyone.... yep ANYONE... can create a product of high value.

      It will be a great deal if it goes through smooth but the strings are majorly held by the one with the list. Its you who needs him more and not vice-versa.
      If I had to start over, I would not mind finishing in second place and allow someone else to hold the strings, if that meant I would make far more money (quicker) than I would otherwise. It's like finishing in second place -- in order to have a first place income.

      Not to mention, that person with a 100k list (or 50k or 10k or whatever) is just a person like you and me. Just a person, who cannot possibly create products fast enough to meet the demands of the market (or his/her lists).

      Any way you slice it, it's speed and it's money and money loves speed.

      Eric

      PS - It's just the way I'd do it, that's all.

      Jeremy, you are completely missing the point of his post.

      You not only gain 3,000 dollars immediately - you also gain:

      1. A possible buyers list.
      2. A small network of partners.

      You would then turn around and 1 week to 1 month later do it again - but this time with the leverage behind you - you could do 6 grand or 15 grand.

      Or, you could take that 3 grand, put it into hiring a small team - a writer, SEO person, and some software - you can now do as you like.

      Or ideally, you do both - continue to build up your product line, build up your search engine rankings, as well as launch a new product a month.

      I figure that doing all three of these things, you could go from nothing to 15k to 30k a month in about 4 months, with ease, if that is what you are doing.

      You need to read the report in Eric's sig. The one he tells you not to read.

      Of course, no one tells moi what I can't do - so I had to subscribe (again) and read those reports (again). And it was well worth it (again).

    I think the reason why walls immediately went up is because (IMO) the warrior forum "newbies" has been trained to start small. WSO and free posts on "how to make $1, $5, $10... per day" are more often than "how to make $100k/day"... Somehow we've been trained that the idea of making $100k/day is only for gurus, and that only a few digit income is the only "realistic" one.

      A lot of that has to do with what people are already "trained" to believe, though.

      5 dollars a day seems easy. And when you've worked at jobs your whole life, you are used to, well, employee salary ranges.

      Thats why a WSO that says "Earn 1 million a MONTH" is far less "believable" than "Earn 1,000 a Month"

      A lot of People see those numbers and imagine some snotty, undeserving "rich" person...because there are two types of people: rich and poor.

      It's a mindset thing - we are who we are and we can't earn anymore than it.

      That's why if you want to increase sales, you double your selling price and half your earnings expectations.

      10,000 a month and only 47 dollars? That isn't realistic...

      5,000 a month and 97 dollars? Yeah, I can see that...

      it is really true. i have been in this site for about one and half month. i am always concentrating on getting 5-10$ per day. but when i read this post, my mind have just tilted to catch the big fish now. for a newbie like me $3000 per month is a huge income for me. but many affiliate program like clickbank,maxbounty and some other affiliate program do not run their business in our region. yes i do not like adsense.

    Eric, I love this thread and thanks Rob and James for your contributions!

    Some years ago I decided I would write my first book - but not any old book...it had to be one that would net me six figures. Straight out of the gate for an unknown author that seemed ridiculous but I did it. How? By adopting the right mindset and focus - nothing and no-one was going to get in my way.

    You guys have reinforced my belief that the same focus works equally as well online and it's a fabulous blueprint that Eric has laid out.

    You can do it.

    I can do it.

    We can do it.

    All it takes is stepping beyond belief into that killer focused zone.

    I do think we limit ourselves by predetermining what we *think* we can or cannot do. Most people are afraid of taking risks or doing the work it takes to get beyond a $1 a day mindset. This post has given me lots of food for thought!
  • Profile picture of the author Mike McAleer
    I totally agree with you Eric!

    Thanks for this great post as I was just considering something similar myself. I have to admit that it is so easy to jump from business opportunity to business opportunity. There's a new WSO that looks so "shiny" or a new method that you read on a blog or something similar and you think "wow this is an exact method that I can copy and then I'll make $50/day!". I don't buy too many WSO's but I do jump around quite a bit. I have probably tried almost EVERY IM METHOD IN THIS FORUM!
    I have made a decent amount online thus far and I won't lie about it but my profits could be higher if I focused my time on the tasks that are most rewarding. I had an Adsense site that made $1/day but then my Adsense got halted because I did not put in the confirmation code correctly for payments to be sent so now they think I live out of country or something. Also I had these little ideas for sites that I put up with the mindset of "oooh if I can make $1/day from this site with adsense/cpa then I'll be so happy!" Pffff what a horrible mindset!
    I also did some offline marketing but then realized it probably wouldn't work for me because I am only 17 and have to go to school and do other activities so I can't do like face to face appointments/ telephone calls very easily either. I did land a guy for $500 a month but am still waiting for him to send payment to get started because he is " busy."

    Another thing I am interested in is Domain Flipping. I think that you MUST have a great sense of what a good domain name is or else you will fail. I have done a lot of reading on Rick's blog, Elliots Blog, MorganLinton.com, and others. Also DomainSherpa.com has some great videos of interviews with some of the best domainers in the industry including Morgan Linton, Ron Jackson of Dn Journal, Andrew Rosener of Media Options, and a few others. I think that buiding wealth in domains can be achieved even when starting out low but you MUST have a good eye for picking domains whether you are developing them or flipping them.

    So that being said, I bought the BringtheFresh course by Kelly Felix and Mike Long and it made me realize that you can make millions only by building a business (theres was info products). Same with the Millionaire Fastlane which is a highly recommended book that I hope you all buy if you want to change your MINDSET but you could get the same idea right in this thread!
    You need to find a market that already has a demand! Already has a SHORTAGE, and fill in the gap! That is how you take money out of thin air.
    Who are the millionaires in the world? I don't know anyone that becomes a millionaire so fast without running their own business. You need to find a problem in a market and capitalize on it or create a new market to solve a problem that has no existing solutions. That is Marketing 101!

    Thanks again for this thread Eric. Money is all about mindset.

      This is an exact example of the mindset I'm talking about.

      "There are two types of people: rich and poor, lucky and unlucky..."

      Money is made through planning, skill and coordination, nothing more.

      Bill Gates didn't have any money when he started Microsoft. He had a plan though - sell his software to a big computer maker. That was it - Joint Venture with computer makers - make them see the value in his software.

      And he did before he had even developed the platform.


      We all know the story, he got the contract because he sold them on the benefits.

      He then took that money, quickly got a prototype up and went for it.

      Let's look at another example:

      Huffington. She leveraged her business savvy, got 1 million in investment money and moved Huffington Post to a 300 million dollar "site flip".

      And how about another:

      Sam Walton had a dream of having every Wal Mart everywhere. He knew that he could do it if he followed three things:

      1. Lowest price around.
      2. Treat employee's like owners.
      3. Treat customers with respect.

      He then went on and developed/planned and grew the biggest chain today.

      There are plenty of examples where it could seem like "luck"...but I like to make my own luck.

      How?

      By not quitting. If I keep trying, doing the right things (like finding holes in the market, developing strategies to supply those holes, and then scaling for growth), I will hit the "big time" - luck will come. It's a strong statistical probability, if I do what I said above.

    I don't think just any newbie marketer could go along and do something like this. It truly takes a business mindset to go ahead and make some real money. Doesn't really matter what the business is but you have to think on a bigger scale to make more.

    Wanna make 5K?

    Sell 715 copies of a $7 product. or... 295 of a $17 product.

    Easy enough right?

    Cool thread... turned into a more important thread on mindset.

    A friend once told me that we learn a lot at school but nothing about money and finance.

    That, we acquire from our parents.

    I'm not saying you dont have to work hard but... I definatley grew up feeling like you had to work hard just to earn enough to survive. With a silly attitude that it was very cool to be tough, working class... no one wants to be a floppy haired rich boy who wears silly clothes and speaks with a funny accent (think Royal Family in the UK).

    Daft mindset when it's not just how hard you work... it's how you spend, focus and leverage your time.

    Still learning and breaking old mindsets.

    You have to smash through the concrete and clear out the bull.... only to find another layer and another and another.

    I absolutely agree with what you say about making deals with other marketers. One of the most common mistakes people do is try to do everything by themselves.
    Outsourcing is also important.
    Many people say: do it all by yourself, make money and THEN outsource, JV, whatever...
    I think this is a mistake. I say: outsource all the activities you don't enjoy doing or you are not good at from day 1, and concentrate on the things you like, because if you wait for the day you will take massive action and do everything by yourself, that day might never come!
    In offline businesses is much more common to make deals with other people and to outsource but for some reason it is not done much when it comes to online businesses.
    Conclusion: Work with other people! You'll be much more successful!!!!!

    You know, I don't spend a lot of time on this forum these days.

    Fact is, I've been far too busy tied up working... both for myself and for clients.

    I don't know what prompted me to visit here today, but man... am I glad I did.

    Eric... this is probably the best post I've ever read on this forum. Seriously.

    I've been brainstorming how to scale up my operation lately and one thing I've had to accept is I can't do it all.

    I'm a great copywriter... and a pretty sharp marketer. I've put together some killer promotions, and made a lot of clients a lot of money.

    That's my strength... my forte... my "thing".

    Traffic? I don't really know a lot about it. I have some fundamental ideas, but learning everything from scratch would take me a long time.

    Product creation? Sure, I *can* do it... but I'd much rather partner with someone who is already an expert in that market and can give years to insight both to me as a marketer and to his/her customers... who has real verified experience to set them apart from the pack.

    Technical stuff? I'm reasonably tech-savvy, but complicated issues take me a long time to solve. I'd rather pay someone else to do that stuff for me.

    So what I'm doing now is teaming up with other people who specialize in areas I don't to create some truly special offerings.

    It's a lesson people have told me over and over... but one that has just begun to finally sink in.

    Anyway Eric... I wanted to publicly thank you for such a great post. This is the real life-changing stuff people should be listening to... and I hope they do.

      Hi Eric,

      I agree with the crux of your post, but there's one part I don't understand -

      Firstly -

      I'd do all the work, outsource the tech part,
      and all the pieces of the puzzle would be covered
      at that point.
      Here are the main areas of online business:

      -- Traffic
      -- Conversions
      -- Product Creation
      -- Technical

      All of those can be outsourced too.
      Secondly -

      These people can create income out of thin air
      with their lists and following (customers).
      Thirdly -

      In a rabid marketplace... you cannot possibly
      create products fast enough... to keep up with
      the buying demand of your market.
      If you look at the WSO section, you'll
      see that very quickly, the top post/offer
      will drop off page one in a matter of hours.

      That proves...

      You cannot possibly create products fast
      enough to meet the buying demand of
      the marketplace.
      So in the first part, you're saying that anything can be outsourced, including product creation.

      In the second part, you're saying that the people with the big lists can create income out of 'thin air'.

      But in the third part, you're saying that these people need others to create products for them because 'you cannot create products fast enough to meet the buying demand of the market.'

      If they can create money out of thin air and product creation can be outsourced, then surely they CAN create products fast enough to meet the buying demand of the market? They just outsource it, rather than diluting their most powerful weapon (their list) by allowing other marketers to take and then pound those subscribers in exchange for product creation?

    Nice tips, JV with others at the top of the food chain is how people like Anthony Robbins started out, ofcourse the difficult thing is getting them to agree, which is where good people skills come into play
