How do I generate 2k+ per month?

13 replies
A friend of mine did affiliate work and pulled in 12K per day. And I really want to learn how to do this.

How can I start off by making 2K a month or more?

Also, what do I start off doing?

For some that's a low price but I'm just starting out.

    So why don't you start by asking your friend?

    It's hard for anyone to advise you unless you give more details about your skills, experience, background etc. You call yourself a copywriter - is that your profession, or is it still an ambition? How does affiliate marketing fit in with that?

      I did ask him, he has very limited time and can't help a lot.

      I do copywriting, however, my clients are not high paying and I rarely get clients. Although my work is good.

      I thought affiliate marketing may be easier to start with and hit my goal of 2K per month.

        Affiliate marketing is only easier if you already have access to a market willing to buy what you're recommending. Otherwise, you'll need to spend money on promotion, spend time growing a following, or find offers that other marketers with existing customers might be interested in.

        Offer to help him with his work. If you free up some of his time, he can give it to you, can't he?

    To honestly get users to get to your site and then for you to get 2k or 12k per day. it requires the right audience coming to your site, then having the proper sales copy, then having the backend properly implemented so that you get paid.

    i did a crypto affiliate network and then their business model didn't pay out, I got a few signups, but they somehow had too many knots in their email system.

    If you want to increase your cashflow so to speak, then you should get into the social media arena because there are countless groups that allows you to promote those types of things. Using keyword rich usernames allows you to market yourself without having to actually look spammy, even though very good marketers and advertisers can see it for what it is, the point is for you to improve and increase your affiliate earnings.

    Magic.

    For just about everyone on this forum, that's what it takes. Magic.


    If you want to have a little more sense about it, you could learn that there are two pieces of making money: Traffic and Conversion. You need eyeballs on an offer, and a way of turning some of those visitors into buyers.

    What I just said is apparently beyond 99% of the people here, which I obviously find a little frustrating. And perplexing. It's not a secret. It's not rocket science.

    You want to make $2K/mo with affiliate offers?

    You need to do some math.

    Oh, THERE it is.

    The tiny bit of math. Too much?

    Guess you can always go back to magic.

    A certain number of people who visit the conversion tool for an offer decide to become buyers.

    If the affiliate offer you're promoting is proven, ie. it's been around for awhile and made sales, then it'll have a higher conversion % than a new, unproven one.

    But conversion is also a function of the quality of the people you're sending there. Traffic quality.

    Confusing already? Magic is always sitting there waiting for you to believe in.

    As an affiliate marketer, it is YOUR JOB to go out and get high quality traffic--that's people who are a fit for that offer--and bring them to that existing conversion tool--the sales letter or VSL that's up online by the seller.

    I think even that is a mystery to most so-called "marketers".

    You need a steady stream of traffic to send to that conversion tool.

    As a newbie if you convert at 0.5% (half a percent) I'd find that surprising.

    So that means you need 200 leads--200 HIGH QUALITY leads--to send to that sales page to have a chance in hell of making one sale.

    And what are most so-called affiliate marketers sending per month? Like... 5? A dozen? And then crying that the offer "doesn't convert"? Give me a break.

    Ah, magic thinking.

    Now as to the selection of the offer, and the importance of the sale price.

    You picked an offer to promote that has a $20 sale price? Oh dear. That's... how many sales to get to $2000?

    You can do that math, can't you? 100 sales.

    Ha ha. Not a chance. 200 leads/sale X 100 sales = 20000 leads (!!!!!) this month to hit your goal??!

    Magic. I tell ya, magic.

    All of you are beaten before you begin because you pick such lousy equations. And you don't even know it.

    So you go upscale and pick a $2000 affiliate offer to promote. Now you're cookin' with gas.

    One sale is all you need to make. Well, it's actually more than one, because you have a cost of customer acquisition, cost per lead y'know, but let's keep it simple for now.

    Is the math you've picked supportive of the outcome you want? For nearly everyone, a resounding "NO".

    Hey, good for you for asking about a specific money target. Really. Almost no one does even that.

    So are you set up for success... or dismal failure with dependency on magic?

    You need to have a following first, thats the key. Your mate must have a very big and eager following for him to be pulling those numbers.
    So find a profitable niche, grow you audience and then sell them your stuff. Not as easy as i have made it but thats the gemeral pattern you need to follow.

      Herrrgh...

      1. "$12K per day": what does that mean? Per day, what? One day? Two days? In a row? The whole week? What number are we really talking about here? Right now we don't know.

      2. "need to have a big and eager following"... not necessarily. What's the sale price of the offer? Is it just one offer, or more? Are there upsells? How much is each customer worth, on average?

      If there's a $50 front end offer, to qualify Out the riffraff and offset or even break even on ad spend, followed by a higher ticket main offer, you can get there with a small number of qualified customers.

      We did this with an $18 free+shipping front end plus $197 invisible funnel next step course--that's where we broke even on traffic--leading to a $2K and later $5K main sale after we raised the price. Average customer value of over $200. Can get to $12K with 6 of the right customers with this funnel.

        - He said 12k Per day, which means that excatly. He is making 12 grand everyday. He he was making it a week or a month i would have expected the op to state that.
        - Classic Russell Brunson on point 2 but i do still believe you still need to have quite a big audience to pull those numbers. People paying 2k are probably nearer the backend of your funnels, so you still have some people buying your frond end and middle offers who are your following and eager buyers.

        You also have those guys who signed up for your free ebook or report, they are also your following, they just have not pulled the trigger yet.

    What all these so-called affiliate marketing gurus don't tell you is that you have to build an email list FIRST.
    The reason why you should build an email list first is that most people do things upside down.
    They are told to create or promote a product first then go and find people to buy your product.
    Trust me that is the absolute worst way to do things. Sure you might make a few sales or worse your
    the product does not sell then you have to go and create another product or promote another product.
    And spend a bunch of more money on advertising. So you are always starting from scratch.
    As I said before the smarter way is to create an audience first and capture that audience on an email list.
    So you now then have this audience of people you can sell products to over and over again.
    This is what builds your long term revenue.
    I have an email list of over 30000 people I built over the years. Anytime I come across some new product
    the first thing I do is email my list and I get instant sales. It is really important to build that
    email list first.

    Two words - "Learn Internet Marketing" - wait that's three words.

    Internet Marketing is an umbrella term - and affiliate marketing is one part of it, which falls under monetization.

    If you're adept at Internet Marketing - grossing $2k a month is no big deal.

    It takes a lot of reading, a lot of notetaking, a lot of painstaking trial and error to get a grip on it - even then your grip isn't as tight as it should be.

    Start with learning how to build a site on WordPress. A proper decent looking site that invokes trust in the visitor's heart.

    Learn about SILOs - about site structure, about keyword research, content planning.

    Then learn about lead generation, sales funnels, lead funnels, list building.

    Learn about tracking, A/B Split testing, understand metrics, try to comprehend how you can use the insights to save money and get more people to your site.

    If you do well organically, you're already in the green - if not, learn about media buying, PPC and be ready to put in some of your own money in there.

    It's not easy. It is like learning anything else. But if you follow it with a passion, you'll get there.

    There's a ton of hard work involved.

    Affiliate marketing takes a lot of hard work. Putting in the time and effort is essential. You need to build quality traffic streams that result in a decent percentage of conversions. Give your audience opportunities they are interested in and continue to work on building up traffic.

    just find an high ticket offer that pays you >$1000 per sale and your life will be much easier.

    You just need one or two sales per month to achieve your goal which is absolutely possible if you are promoting a proven offer/funnel.


    Good Luck :-)
