cracking a $1k month? or a $10k month?

15 replies
hi everyone, im working on a little biz, content creation for business owners, so far its been logos, social media graphics, and blog posts, everyone that i've worked for has been happy, since i started this officially in septemeber

I had no list, no following, just posting in FB groups adding value and reading warriorforum and a little of Jairek Robbins business articles, (I have 2 people on my list now lol)

so my question is how would you crack a $1k month, or even a $10k month? I know that its simple on paper, get 10 people to pay me $1k in one month and boom $10k in a month, but i guess that it just seems so out of reach for me, and a little unsustainable

So i am wondering if i am going about this the wrong way, maybe instead of like graphic design firm, it should be like a marketing firm, but that can't make sense for me at this level, but then again it could if im able to get results, then people will pay me $1k for $10k in results...

Just trying to get my thinking out there so that maybe someone else could give me some ideas or correct it

    i do freelance, i am just wondering the best way to hit those numbers, like would it be more realistic to have 10 people pay me $100, or 1 person pay me $1k, but "wow" him with the results.

    So if i were to go a more high ticket route, what would be a unique result i could get for this business?

    I have alot of marketing strategies, such as the dream 100, the whole secrets trilogy by Russell Brunson, so i feel okay there,

    Just kind of looking for a second opinion here, but thank you and i appreciate you

      A small snowball thrown down a hill could become a huge avalanche...of profits.

      Instead of thinking of 10 vs 100, how about a rethink to ONE. What can YOU do for one other business? ONE man, one woman, one business? What do you offer?

      See, your question is about getting other people to give you money, which is what this IM is all about, but typically, for new people they are looking to GET before they have much to GIVE.

      Making money is an exchange of value.

      So perhaps change up your conversation to more of what you offer, WHO is buying now, today, where and how much are they paying for those skills.

      Many future 1000 dollar a month customers, will begin with a much smaller purchase, and over time, with TRUST in you and your value, they will increase their buys.

      Just my opinion, but I think you are "putting the cart before the horse" with your thinking, but I could be wrong too.

        One person, one insanely great value add offer, done for an optional email address and a honest testimonial, to really show what I can do...

        Thanks! Much appreciated!

        I agree with Gordon and want to add:

        If I were you, I'd go after marketing agencies. Have them subcontract the logos to me.

        I have come across people who complained about the pay.

        So, keep in mind that they will hire you again and again, so you have to market a lot less. So, if the reduction is what you'd pay to market yourself, there is no loss.

        Also, work with several at all times. Every now and again, one of your agencies goes bad and needs replacing.

        One of 20, you're losing a small part of your income.

        One of 3, you might not earn enough to pay the minimum on your bills.

    In order to have the regular monthly income that you
    want, you must offer a continuing service and charge
    your clients a recurring fee.

    Figure out what you can offer on a regular basis, how
    much you will charge, and how many clients you want
    to deal with.

    Over time, there will be some attrition, and you will
    need to retain new clients, but once you get going
    it's not that difficult.

    If you can charge a large upfront fee that's great, but
    you can give them something for free, a bonus or a
    reduced rate, and focus mostly on signing people
    up for the recurring charge.

    That is so important.

    I get DMs all the time from Designers. They offer to create your posts and reels for you and do it consistently.

    That is what you want clients that pay you monthly or even annually on an continual basis for content.

    Also on Fiverr there are Gigs that offer Premium Upgrades for $1000.

    To become a marketing FIRM, you need to know marketing yourself and know how to get traffic for clients.

    Learn it, MASTER IT, and then offer your services.

    Earning your first $1k-$10k online is possible with time but requires work upfront. It entails reaching out to the prospective audience through social media, blogs, and other online media. It also requires pulling quality and engaging content consistently. If you're only using Facebook groups to reach your audience, then ensure to explore video content. That's the way for you to achieve your goal in no time.

    Cracking a $1k month, or even a $10k month involves making consistent sales where you're selling a high demand product. Or at least positioning yourself as a provider of a service that creates on demand product.
    For example -- I know a guy who's a copywriter and who charges $50k for one sales letter. This guy can create a sales letter that will generate at least hundreds of thousands. Hence he's worth it. He figured out how to write these sales letters in 2-3 days each. As a result, he makes half a mil per month.
    Now, when a sales letter is written, it needs to be graphically designed. And in some cases a video sales letter needs to be created. Whoever can create a video can charge $1000, possibly more. I need those videos myself.
    Now, what about logos, social media graphics, and blog posts? How many sales do these generate? The answer is -- none. It's a nice to have. So if I were you, I'd try to position myself where I'm helping generate sales and I'd build a high income skill. This way I'd eventually crack a lot more than $10k/month.

      you're right, i think the graphic design and blog posts are good, its just, it needs to be paired with marketing techniques to really see leverage

    Are you building a list? List building is key. The list is what is going to separate the people who are willing to pay you vs the tire kickers 1 person on your lists equals 1 dollar per month.

    If you want clients to pay a retainer, you'll have to offer something that isn't just a "one off job". So yes, you'd be better off supplying PPC, SEO or other ongoing services rather than graphic design.

    That's not to say a graphic design company can't make $10k per month though. There are countless design agencies making millions of dollars.

    The key is:
    • Do incredible work
    • Charge your worth (including overheads)
    • Get good clients who value you

    To do good work, it's usually best to specialise in something. I don't know any phenomenal graphic designers who write great articles (or even want to). So rather being a jack of all trades and master of none, it's probably better to focus on what you're really good at (and ideally, enjoy) and master it.

    Then make baby steps towards that $10k.

    Great inputs here by many Warriors.

    However one thing I would like to ask you;

    Originally Posted by The Click Swap View Post

    You say you want to go from $1,000 to $10,000 per month,
    and to me that's like getting your car to accelerate from 20pmh to 150mph
    instantly with a push.

    You should get clear on how much you can make realistically, by looking at your
    current numbers and your current price points. If you are currently earning less than
    $1,000 per month, create yourself a goal to hit $1k. Approach more businesses and
    offer a recurring plan for your services.

    You can start by charging low and as you build value and your brand becomes trustworthy,
    you may offer additional services as an upsell and even recurring payments.

    So just reprogram your business structure, your funnel and start approaching
    more business onwers. This will help you get to making $1,000 per month,
    then you may shoot for $2,000 ... until you get to $10,000.

    After you reach a certain level of income, you may outsource most of the
    work to other people. Now this becomes a much better business model that
    doesn't require you to be working on it 24/7 and becomes easily scalable.

    Wishing you luck in your future endeavors!
