Realistic Goals?

by Ewan1998 Banned 24 replies
I'm 13, nearly 14 and I've been doing I.M for half a year now. In that time I've only earned $121.45, still sitting in my Paypal account.

My goal is to reach $50 a day by the end of this year (2013). I'm starting a poster selling business online soon. I'm also going to be creating other websites specifically designed for AdSense/CPA etc...

Is it possible?

Thanks.

    Of course it is possible!

    Great job on what you have done so far. There are many people your age just wasting the days away. I wish I would have started when I was that age, I can only imagine where my business would be today.

    Best of luck and keep at it!

    Not sure whether you mean this year OR 2013. Anyway, those $121.45 are more than most people make in their first six months online. I'd say go for it, you can do it!

    Your chances are even higher if you focus on ONE project instead of poster selling + various websites.

    Wish you the best!

    Yes, of course it is.

    Try to make it with small steps - week/month 1 10$ per day
    week/month 2 20$ per day etc.
    It will make you feel better about your accomplishments and won't make you unmotivated when you don't reach 50$ on the first day.

    And you have a LOT of time in front of you, I spend my days playing PlayStation when I was you (yes the first one

    Thanks for the replies.

    My earnings so far have mostly come from BidTraffic, but others have came from promoting products like eBooks for others through YouTube etc...

    Looking for better, faster ways though to make money online.

    My suggestion: look for a better way to start a business.

    You could easily waste years of your life looking for "better, faster ways to make money online". If you skip that step, you'll be way ahead of your buddies.

      What do you mean by a better way to start a business?

    Congrats on the money you have generated so far.

    I suggest you focus on (IM offers etc) things that you are either passionate about or at least have some experience with or enjoy.

    When you focus on those kinds of things, then when you will have a tough time calling it work cause its fun!

      Ok because I'm thinking of writing some eBooks on simple making money online tasks that I've came across while doing I.M and experimenting with different techniques.

    Definitely possible. Hat's off to having such great ambition at such a young age!
    Here's any idea. Break it right down.
    Try to earn just $5 a day. Work out how to do that and you will never have to work again, because the beauty of internet marketing is that if you can make $5 a day, you can scale it up to $1,000 a day with a little work.

    So for now, don't get overwhelmed, just set a goal of and average of $5 a day, and then build up from there.

      Thanks for the good advice. I'm going to start a personal log so I can build it up. I'll try 1 method at first, give it some time to see if it's working then if not, try another method until I find the one that works for me

    I agree with the rest, but I have one more piece of advice. You mentioned creating a few different websites. I would suggest that you focus on one until that one is making money, then start to focus on new projects. Otherwise, you will have a bunch of projects, and none of them are making money.

      I definitely want to go forward with the poster selling idea so I'll focus on this one first, see if I can make some money through that.

        Good! Focus on only one thing at a time. Why? You will be more productive.

        Since you set a year to hit the goal, you should start with a plan. You definitely don't need money right now, do you? I would stop everything and decide what next. You already made some money so you know it's possible. Now, it's the time to examine the methods that earned you that money and build upon it. Don't care about anything else and focus on one thing.

        I think you can make more than $50 a day if you begin with a good plan. You have time, and that is something a lot of people don't have when going into IM.

        Take slow clear steps and focus only on that.

          I don't want to invest any more than $50 until I've started making some sales. I've got a basic plan. I might try and get a partner for it. Any ideas of going about it?

    Firstly, very well done for starting and making a profit!

    Poster affiliate work can be great. The main "secret" in doing that is that you need to write an emotionally engaging description for each poster. That's what will vastly multiply your results. So if the poster is a wolf, don't just describe it as "a poster of a wolf", talk about the power and freedom of this superbly adapted animal, living in its beautiful but deadly wilderness, etc. that kind of thing.

    This is an aspect of advertising copy. Common phrases about this include "don't sell the steak, sell the sizzle". People buy posters if you can stir up their emotions, hopes, dreams, aspirations.

      Thanks, Chris.

      I'll bear that in mind when selling the posters. I'll be using most of my own photography for it. Good tip.
