Earning Million Dollar a year - How Realistic?

81 replies
How common for the folks here to clear a million dollar a year.? Is it a very few?
I realize it is very hard work. In addition to hard work what are other ingredients needed? is this possible via just google adsense or need to be a affiliate marketer?

I started couple of websites with adsense some years ago, but did not focus much as I got a traveling job making decent money. Now I have a lot of time, financially stable and I want to understand better before I venture in to it

Many Thanks for your ideas Warriors.

    Yeah, of course. A million dollars with adsense is easy.

    Sigh. I blame myself for clicking on this thread.

      This is pretty common here. One fool posts a ridiculing comment and a dozen other fools say thanks for his extremely useful post.

      I wonder if they would consider a slightly modified question also silly?

      "Is it possible to get 100K visitors a day?"

      If your Adsense RPM is $10, you need 300K page views to make 3K a day. If your site is engaging enough for each visitor to visit 3 pages, that's 100K visitors a day that you need to attract. For many this might seem as unachievable, in reality there are a few people on this forum who have sites which attract 40K visitors a day.

      Of course there are much better ways than Adsense to monetize the websites, but that's another question.

      Are you serious? I struggled with adsense for three years and could not even generate a stable 3 figures per month to save my life.

        I thought it was obvious that I was not serious. Ridiculous questions deserve ridiculous answers.

        Here's a tip for you, since I saw your other post. Stay far away from Tyler.

      There are tons of marketers here on the forum the make easily $1,000,000 a year I'm sure of it. The thing is you have to deserve a million dollars. Adsesne is a good start if you have a lot of traffic allready. Start making 10k a month with adsense then start networking, find some business partners who are more adnvaced and can open doors for you. In the end you need to find people or a mentor who can take you to that next level!

    Nobody makes a million dollars. They make products and services that have value to others.

    If you can do that and sell it to enough people, you'll be a millionaire.

    But, the odds are stacked way against you. If I was a betting man, I'd bet everything against you. Nothing personal, that is just how it works. 98% fail, 1.5% do ok, .4% do well and .1% get rich.

    My advice: snap out of the "get rich with adsense" dream and get to work on something that offers real value to real people.

    The internet marketers that I know of that make that much money don't just use long-term business models like niche blogging or whatever it may be. They are product creators who have built solid brands in their particular industries and have really successful product launches (due to having a lot of major joint venture partners and such).

    Depends on what you consider 'make millions'. There's a big difference between gross income and net income especially when you're running a legitimate business with overhead and ad spend.

    Let's say someone was grossing $100k a month. If there expenses is $80k a month, is he making $1.2M a year or $240k a year?

    If you're question is whether or not people do make it, yes they do. Here on the Warrior Forum however....

    It's like King's Landing in Game of Thrones... We are all liars here. And we're all better than you.

    If you seriously think a marketer who is banking $19,628 dollars every week using this super ninja Clickbank secret would seriously sell the 'blueprint' for $7 you're out of your mind.

    TDLR, 96% of people here are new or haven't made serious money yet. 3% make their money selling things they don't have a clue about. 1% probably have legitimate businesses and make a lot of money.

    I would guess the majority of seven figure earners are into a lot more than just online marketing.

    My income didn't really take off until I invested the money I made online, in off line enterprises - wind turbines and wild land.

    Starting from zero to a million a year with just some websites will be tough. Unless you invent the next FB.

      Nah...if he invents next FB he will be a billionaire. He just want a mil. A much more modest idea will do the trick.

      @OP

      Adsense, affiliate marketing ...these are different ways to monetize your site. Each one can make you millions, Don't focus on them, focus on your content and how you are going to present them, how to get those eye balls etc. Some are using multiple of them.

      Some people talking about creating product. I don't think that is necessary. Whoever controls the traffic, makes the money. Product creators will find you. It depends on what you prefer. There is no one way of doing it.

      Good luck

        Pretty much. you only need about 3,000 people paying you around $29.95 a month to make a million a year (thats less than 70 people per state just looking at the US and not the world). No need to be the next facebook. If you want the best shot at that then you need the right idea and not be afraid of programming. Of course many people hear the word programming and get scared but theres never been an easier time to learn online and some languages like Ruby are fairly easy to grasp (and if you hire you don't even to know it that well)

        I think we would see a whole lot more success on this forum if people went that route. Of course you also have to have a shift in philosophy. To get people to pay monthly you have to think of what people need more than just what you will make and you have to be forward thinking enough to know you are months away from making money. Thing is most people do take months and years before they see any real profit with the methods advanced on WF. They just spend most of it trying to find the push button method they think will do it overnight.

            I work with a few people making that much,

            Making that much would put you in the historical, global 1 %.The odds are WAY against you no matter what.

            But its going to be a lot easier if you find the people who already are millionaires from internet marketing and work with them.

            I'd offer to work for free, or take an entry level position.

            Anything to get in the door. If these people are making millions, that means their customer lists are worth millions, and access to those lists is HUGELY valuable,

    Ow Boy adsense will make you 1 mill possible if you own Facebook and put adsense on it ha. If you are creative enough then a Mil is not far. Well its way easy to make a mil if you at-least know how to make a $10 thats the hardest by the way. The day I made a dollar back 7 years ago was my most exiting moment than todays few K's a day. Its easy to do than it was to do that dollar. So you got to start somewhere buddy.
    Well I don't think you need to work so much hard but definately you need to work Smart way smarter and leverage mentors.
    So yes I dont suggest you adsense but look into Affiliate Marketing, CPA, Your Own Product Creation, Selling products on amazon just know one thing and have it clear in Mind
    You can make a million in a day let alone year if you have a half million daily budget but Yeah its no Magic Money makes Money and More Money Makes More Money.

    Cheers.

    On this forum, very few. WF is somewhat of an educational portal more than it is a water cooler around which the affluent chit-chat, as you might find within mastermind group settings or on forums dealing with a specific area of marketing. A great deal of business inertia also exists, where old standing, tried-and-tested marketing systems appear almost universally used and recommended and therefore perpetuated among the newcomers, despite the effectiveness of such systems being eroded year in and year out, and only compounding the general and ongoing usage of outmoded practices. It is, in short, a nice place where veterans like myself can hang out, help out, and cement our knowledge (if need be) in the MMO industry, but here is not a place to rub shoulders with a great many multi-millionaires and therefore, if you're new, be inspired.

    To answer your second question: earning close to $3K a day, which is what we're of course talking about, is no easy feat with AdSense alone. For a veteran or a newcomer. If we go back between 10 and 15 years, a time when many of us devoted a great proportion of each day to building and ranking SEO mini sites, then the story is quite different. The objective back then was to earn "a dollar a day" from each site. In practice, the average was closer to $5 to $10, for those who could indeed rank (positions 1 to 3, page 1) for the "right kind" of keywords. But even then $3K a day was a rarity. It was just considerably easier than doing it in 2015. The type of AdSense traffic you want can usually not be found in abundance from the easy traffic channels. Socials. To get it you have to mostly rely on search engines and Youtube. We're talking high-value clicks. Alternatively, you need a lot of low-value clicks, and here socials are the answer, but $3K per day won't remotely come from owning the odd 500K page. Huge, diverse followings are required. Going viral is another solution.

    Now to dispel some of the doom and gloom. Someone entering the industry should concentrate their efforts on the easier routes to $3K per day. You mention affiliate marketing. That would be one area to delve into, and of course it covers a multitude of sins (PPC, list marketing, et al). When you have the experience you should also look into information product creation, software development, and services. But whichever avenue you go down, remember the idea is not to go after the one-shot deals, something like a burst of short-lived success on a PPC campaign or a WSO release. Instead, you must grow your traffic. You need to become a traffic addict. Each day should be devoted to growing it. It starts with having the right money site - the right authority site, the right membership site, the right forum, or the right any type of site that is optimized to earn the very most possible from each arriving visitor. And once you have that in place, your early objective should be to master "one" traffic system. Master it. Optimize it. Somewhat or completely automate it (with outsourcing if need be). Then - move on. Onto the next traffic system. Never forgetting, of course, that owning the right website and driving traffic is half of the story. Getting traffic is one thing. But you need to keep it. Keep it and ensure the people - since it's so very easy to forget clicks and numbers are living and breathing people - are happy. Grow your list. Grow your socials. Grow whatever platforms you have that collect living and breathing people, or, customers and "repeat customers" and, by giving them what they want and in the right way, keep them happy and loyal and often spreading the word.

    You will encounter a great many frustrated people on forums like WF. Recall what I said about eroded business practices. These people, who are struggling themselves, will tell you that your dreams are not dreams, not serious goals, but pipe-dreams, and silly ones at that. I can see their point. We get a lot of newcomers here who have been fed the pipe-dream by gurus heaving upon us worthless information products. "Buy this simple ATM system. So easy your blind Grammy can do it. Learn my system. Make a million!" An unending flood of misinformed newcomers is the reward these gurus heave upon us all. People arriving and thinking IM is easy. A simple route to riches. So, yes, regarding the naysayers - I do see their point. But this is the thing. In two decades, I've seen more people fail than succeed. But I have seen successes. And that should be what you take away from this. I've seen people with no formal education, no prior IM experience whatsoever, arrive one day and decide that was the day to wage war. To ask questions, to make the right connections, to work hard, 12 to 18 hour days, and to grow towards success. Because it won't happen overnight, but if you're bright and work then it can happen. Might not. But it can.

    Now stop asking if it can be done. Knuckle down and show us that it can.

    - Tom

    It is realistic but it takes time and devotion. If you have courage and time/passion then you can definitely do it. IMO, it would take minimum five years to reach there and a lot of intelligent investments.

    It is not common at all. There are some who have done it, no question.

    Honestly though, I would get this notion out of your head. Not because it cant be done but usually millions are made by those who strictly concentrate on fulfilling solutions to problems people are having and just run with it.

    Their minds don't usually fixate on a certain number or figure

      Do you have direct experience testing campaigns? Not sure exactly what you're talking about... But you certainly don't need thousands...

      Regardless if you're talking about visitors, conversions or dollars. You can be testing with as little as $20 on a Yahoo Gemini campaign, $5 on Outbrain or just 10 visitors a day.

      You just need to think outside of the box

    adsense is not the only option you need to look at.
    Any millionare will tell you they will never have one stream of income. If you build a blog and use adsense, expect these earnings to be complimentary to whatever you are doing.

    I am just learning myself but you need to offer a service or product.
    I highly recommend you not use adsense personally. It will merely detract from whatever product or service you offer. Imagine selling a diet program and seeing an adsense add that sends them to another offer.

    either way, focus on content on the site. the content drives visitors. they buy or click ads, but again adsense should not be all you have.

      Good point, and that's one reason to avoid Adsense altogether or at least use it only as a secondary method. Google is notorious for canceling Adsense accounts on a whim, while offering neither notice nor explanation. Substitutes for Adsense aren't all that good, so if you're using Adsense as your primary method of earning, you could find yourself left with no good way to monetize if Google hits you with the ban hammer.

      I'd use Adsense as a secondary method of earning only.

    Most people don't want to make $1 million per year. Even if it is possible to make $1 million per year from adsense.... you should be on your site/blog marketing and promoting it RIGHT NOW instead of casually asking us if it can make you $1 million per year.

    It would be rare to do that with Adsense and not too many do it with affiliate marketing. Some do, but not many.

    I'd say creating a string of dynamite products would get you closer to that goal, but then there's always this:

    Of course it is realistic but only for branded established businesses.
    But I doubt you can achieve that by adsense only, Google will not allow you to earn that much ahaha

    I've never made a million in a year, but have made more than $600K, all through a combination of AdSense and affiliate links, and a bit from a selling a digital product. But that was before Google cracked down. I've now redesigned my sites, and am back up to about $300K a year, after over a year.

    I realize it is very hard work. In addition to hard work what are other ingredients needed? is this possible via just google adsense or need to be a affiliate marketer?

    I started couple of websites with adsense some years ago, but did not focus much as I got a traveling job making decent money. Now I have a lot of time, financially stable and I want to understand better before I venture in to it

    Many Thanks for your ideas Warriors.
    You probably won't succeed if your main focus is money. That's for sure. Aim for something greater than just trying to bring in money. Change lives, make a difference, solve problems and the money will follow.

    Something to think about - most people don't skyrocket immediately to huge incomes. Mostly, it is incremental, sporadic, inconsistent, but sometimes increasing over time.

    Think of this - how much are you making a month today? How about a goal of doubling that in a certain amount of time - a month, six months, a year? Then increase it again.

    Think of this - people who earn $1 mil a year provide huge value for others. They are "worth" $1 mil a year. What do you think you are "worth"? You have to increase your worth, that is, you have to provide others, many others, with something that is very valuable to them, so they are happy to pay for it.

    My guess (speaking as someone who does not earn $1 mil/year) is adsense would be only a part of this.

    There are a few millionaires here on the WarriorForum but they knew what they were doing.

    To be honest with you, it's going to be a pretty steep hill to climb in order to make a million dollars in a year.

    First, you have to have a serious marketing plan together. This includes your niche, original product or affiliate product.

    You need to do the research (keywords) to determine if this product or niche can generate enough income that can make you about a million bucks in a year.

    I would say that you will need to know what kind of budget you can handle, which means if you are going to want to make that kind of money you will need to have a good sized budget for marketing and promotion.

    If you can promote your product, niche, affiliate program through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, selling it on Amazon and eBay, etc., and even here on the Forum and have the funds to do that, then you stand a chance to make a pretty good money; but remember the slogan, "It Takes Money To Make Money".

    Just start off small by maybe generating $2,500 to $10,000 a month, take half of that profit and invest it back into marketing and promotion and you should see that $1,000,000 show up real sooner than you think.

      If there are marketeers that can make 1 Million up to 100-200 Millions per year, then i must say its doable.... If you will reach there, I sincerely donĀ“t know.

      Adsense probably is not the way to achieve the goal. One of the best ideas that come to my mind are Viral Websites that will reside in Social PPC traffic, They can make much more then 1 Million a year, even though FB changed a lot their PPC algorithm and that break a lot the Viral sites earnings.

      The income of these sites is normally Adsense and some very targeted CPA offers.

      Buzzfeed and Viralnova are some good examples. Buzzfeed last year gathered 100 Millions in advertising. So if you have the right business model and a good budget to invest, you may not reach Buzzfeed status, but if you have 1% of it you will reach the $1 Million mark.

    Earning million dollars a year is hard as well as easy if you know how to.

    Well, it's not possible with only Google AdSense or as only being an affiliate marketer.

    It is possible with a combination of multiple income streams.

    You got to have a complete business plan - a plan that's workable and is executable to make million dollars a year.

    You got to have your own products, you need sell ad space, you can promote other's products, you can try CPA and several other income streams.

    The main thing is to promote the site heavily and get traffic and make conversions. That will only bring you the money and make you a millionaire!

    Internet marketing is just a tiny piece of what it's available. I've never been able to personally build an empire by only using Internet marketing so I'll give you some cues of what's really important.
    Internet Marketing is about the tactics to make money. Facebook, Google, Websites, Autoresponders... they are all just tools. Very effective tools if used right but tools at the end. As time passes these tools change or at least how you use these tools. Keep up to date with your most trusted "gurus" on each relevant tool for you.
    You must put that into a strategic context. Check out Jay Abraham, Chet Holmes and even Digital Marketer to see how to build a strategic business on which you'll use Internet Marketing.
    As with any business, you should have a business model. I do not recommend to base it in affiliate marketing but in an actual product or service you can sell directly and probably use affiliate marketing with the non-buyers with whom have certain level of likeness and trust with you.
    With all the strategic and tactical knowledge you have, you shouldn't have a hard time with this.
    Create a marketing process and pipeline (or funnels). The strategic gurus as the ones already cited will give you detailed insight on how to do that. I'll add to them Dan Kennedy as he can be already considered a legend on which some well known IM gurus are his students such as Frank Kern and Don Crowther.
    The money is in the process and pipeline. You usually use IM to attract and nurture qualified leads, which is about as 80% of the sale. But you still need to close. You can use a tripwire product (Digital Marketer) to ease the close or you can direct leads to other closing mechanisms as a phone number, a visit to the establishment, etcetera.
    Down in the pipeline you may interest and introduce a product via IM tools but most closes will be done by the phone. So one of the most profitable marketing plan is to use IM to generate qualified leads and make an initial low-risk sale and then deveop that customer in the back-end with the telephone for a more expensive, personalized pitch.

    Affiliate marketing per se is so difficult because your audience need to know, like and trust you before you direct them to the sale and even if you do that right, you'll be getting comissions on the tripwire product (the cheap one), not in any of the back-end sales (in which in some cases they are worth thousands of dollars). If you are great at getting traffic flowing then you may consider it more seriously. If not, build a business based on valuable work and please achieve something before you relabel all what you learned in IM and sell it again. The IM niche is already saturated with BS like that.

    There's only one universal law that can explains everything including the possibility of 1 million dollars in a year and that is MATHEMATICS. If you've developed a product whether ebook, iphone apps, kindle publication, software, etc. and bought/downloaded by at least 1 million people in a year then you've reached your goal of 1 million dollars in a year. Thanks to the internet... the internet produced more millionaires (young and old) in the last 10 years than the previous 10 decades combined! But you should be in the right track and process to do it and lookout for scams e.g. "amassing big amount of money doing nothing!" LoL!

    I would say dont only rely on adsense. you got to provide exceptional content that people will want to read and you should also consider writing an ebook and selling that on the website as well. This will increase your changes of making a million or more. once you make an ebook then depending on how well it does make a course. keep expanding your niche and show your readers you know what you are doing.

    Adsense and a million dollars a year revenue, I think not. If you are among top 1000 or 500 website in the world that means among over 1 billion websites (that is: 1,000,000,000) it means to be among % 0.0001
    of the websites, which is possible but highly doubt it if you can achieve it in the next 5 to 10 years. If you spend 1 million dollars a month on it you can though.
    Be realistic in your goals, I'm not saying don't dream but, don't get me wrong. I'm just saying that be a bit more realistic.

    I'm going to respond to this in case anyone is reading this old thread.

    Regardless what your yearly goal is, take that number and divide it by 365 days in a year. Then take that number and divide it by whatever your average revenue is per conversion. Then take that number and figure out how to get that many conversions each day and you will hit your goal.

    $1mm / 365 = $2740 per day
    $2740 / $30 (just to pick a number) = 91 conversion per day

    Making a million dollars a year online is certainly possible and many are doing it, although you won't find them here on WF bragging about it. They're too busy running their businesses. I know it's possible because I've made as much as $600K in a year and, although I couldn't do it, I could see how it could be possible with the just the right traffic, the right niche, the right amount of effort.

    I find it hard to believe there are many/any people on the WF that make $1M/year (actual net income, not revenues). Take a guy like John Reese who did $1M in a day, he gave away $500K to his affiliates (give or take), paid whatever amount to produce/ship the product, paid cc fees, and then paid taxes on whatever was left. That was also a product that did not provide any ongoing support (from my understanding) and it was just a recording of a seminar he did, so that's about as "easy" as it gets.
