    How much are you willing to invest to make $1.2 million dollars per year, without the hassle of blogging, creating products, or... Working?

    For anybody to guarantee you this kind of income with an online business is not the way to go. First of all, you have too high of an expectation. This is not easy income. $100,000 is not something you just earn out of thin air. It's quite a lot of money. Set a goal of $5,000 a month. Even though sounds too high for someone like me, it sounds more realistic than $100,000 per month.

      This is pretty much the worst advice I've ever read. If he wants to make 100k a month then the strategy he develops is going to be much different then a guy who wants to make 5k. Also 5k isn't really much to me, I've spent 10k a day before (on business expenses) and wasn't worried about it.

      Best advice I can give you: learn how to complete a project for a reasonable cost (2-3k) and get it 100% done in two weeks. Get the project coordinator experience you need upfront, you can't spend a year producing your site or your product (whatever it is you want to do.) Get an idea, create a product, or build a site which is going to pull high RPM (1k+) launch it, and get it running as fast as you can. Throw money at it, outsource everything, just get stuff done. Once it's out there promote it, if it flops, you'll have to sit there and do free promotion techniques to get your investment back. If you have enough experience and intelligence, you'll just know if it will work or not so what might seem risky to an outsider, you're not going to feel that it is even a risk at all.

      Then take 100% of your earnings and leverage the business assets you've built, then throw it at bigger and better launches/products.

      Jacobsnyder is right. You should devide your target amount for smallest amount and than make a plan how step by step increase your income. Then you will have a strategy, not just a dream

    If you don't want to create products or do blogging (would have been my top advice...), then you need to build your list and get more serious with it. Don't send emails sporadically or casually. Email folks every day and make sure your emails are fun, entertaining, filled with value and that they really do improve your readers' lives, even if in a small way.

    As for you specific financial goal, it's just a matter of how much you can scale your business. I don't know what it is, so I have no idea. That said, a list of 2,000 should be netting you 2K a month (if you go by the "industry standards" metric that's always bandied about). So for 100K, using that as a guideline... you need to increase the size of your list to 100K subscribers.

    Simple enough, but doing it will not be easy. Takeaway... simple does not mean easy. Good luck. Let us know what strategy you decide on

          maybe you should research and take note of a guy named ryan deiss his one of the best marketers online and he probably makes $100,000 a month or more.

          But hang on he probably has:-

          1. Ten or twenty different websites that have taken years to build up
          2. A team of employees who run his traffic campaigns etc etc
          3. YEARS AND YEARS of expertise.
          I could go on.........................

            He's in the IM niche, you should be watching the companies worth 100M or more. The ceiling is lower with IM, most people don't want to learn things.

            Edit: Or to become a certified content marketing specialist, what a pile of garbage. You get a nice little certificate that proves you got taken, nice, very professional operation there. Do you get a tee-shirt with his brand on it as well?

I'd prefer to do something that has a huge demand.
              Go after unknown brand names that after doing some minimal research you feel might have some potential - which have an affiliate program.

              The more unknown the better - cause you can get those names as keywords for cheap cheap on adwords and invest as little as a few dollars a day for ads. Look for nickle or dime clicks.

              All you need is for a few of those unknown brands to suddenly get mentioned on Dr. Oz or some other big media form and BOOM!

              This was how I got hooked in. Had just one of those and was netting 1k a day on nickle clicks - so if you can find like 4 of these per month that kick off you can do it!

              You will likely need to spend most of your time watching TV and get a good psychic to tell you what the up and coming trends are.

                  Let me get this straight. You are coming on a Forum and asking how to make 100K a month to a group of people who many have NOT figured out how to make $100 a month ?

                  Classic. And thanks for giving me a nice chuckle today

                    Making blanket statements like this without knowing the whole story isn't exactly Mensa-level performance either.

                    Whether emailing every day is a good idea or not depends on what you are emailing, and how that jibes with the expectations you set when the person subscribed.

                    Suppose you signed up for a "Daily Deal" list, and the owner only emailed you every week or two? You'd end up with a dead list in short order.

                    I'm on a bunch of lists that email daily, from both large companies and small. The trick is, they told me upfront I'd be getting emails daily.

                    Do I open/read all of them?

                    No, I don't. I do open/read some of them, though. I'd probably open and read more if some of them did a better job of segmenting. As it is, I cherry pick through them based on the subject line and the first few lines that show in my preview. The rest get dumped, much like sorting one's physical mail over the trash can.

                    But I certainly don't resent them for emailing daily. After all, that's what I signed up for...

                    @discrat, I'm well aware NOW that not everyone here is doing well. This is where so much resentment is stemming from I see. It's not my problem though.

                    I thought WF was a place to learn, grow and support one another but as I have since witnessed not everyone does, but would rather take the time to be snarky.

                      InternetSweetie,

                      Here's one out of many ways to make money on the Internet (not $100K / month net specifically right from the get-go, though this is fully scalable):

                      1. Learn everything you can about digital media buying;

                      2. Buy ad placements in heavily trafficked authority sites, blogs, social networks, online communities, search engines, mobile apps and mobile ad platforms in your chosen industries that can drive a significant amount of quality call traffic per day to your partner call center, which can convert on average 20% or more of those calls into an average of $200 or more order sales per call; and

                      3. Receive 40% commissions per sale ...

                      Well, what I'm doing is finding partners that can drive call traffic (the call traffic that we need in the industries that we're in) to my partner call center network, and for them to earn 40% commissions per sale, while I earn 2% commissions per sale; and

                      For example, right now, one contract is earning me $400+/- per day revenues (not net because there are transfer fees and bank withdrawal charges) from a German and French campaign with a partner publisher and my partner call center network. In this campaign, our partner publisher (a digital media buying company in Israel) is driving 400+/- calls per day and a center in my partner call center network is converting on average 25% of those calls into an average of $200 sales each (average order value); and

                      By buying ad placements at around $XX per 1K impressions and $0.XX to $X per click and $X per call from various ad networks and private networks -- This partner publisher of ours is grossing (not netting since they have media buying costs) $8K+/- per day, on average ...

                      Hope this gave you some ideas. Best of luck!

        This is something that each list owner needs to test and see if that is the case.

        I've been mailing for 15 years and I'm aggressive, because I want to break-even on my acquisition costs as quickly as possible. Almost all my lists get mailed daily or more than once per day and I really don't get that many unsubscribes. AND all I send are offers...no content.

        I get maybe 10-15 unsubscribes per 1000 contacts per month. I have had a some lists that in the first 30 or so days got like 8-10%. This is because after I break-even, I test to see how aggressive I can get away with being and sometimes I get more unsubs than I do with other lists, but that is how I figure it out.

    LOL at anyone who believes 1 subscriber should, or does, equal $1 per month. There is no "industry standard" for how valuable a subscriber is to a list. There is simply some made up number that someone decided sounded good and now gets tossed around like most of the other junk on this forum.

    The truth is, there are waaaaayyyyy too many variables for there ever to be an "industry standard". There are people making a killing with lists of 2k, or less, because they have great leads, are great email marketers, provide great information, and recommend or create great products, etc.

    There are people with 100k plus lists that make peanuts, because they aren't great marketers, didn't get great leads, aren't providing or recommending the great products, etc.

    So, what could be worth $1, or $100 to someone, could very easily be worth $0 to someone else.

    Well, it's kind of big goal, 100k per month...

    You could start building your business to 20k a month. And then start worrying about 100k per month.
    You simply need to make 200 sales of $100 each. With an average conversion rate of 1.5%, you need about 13350 leads and with a minimal opt-in rate of 25% you need about 53400 clicks PER MONTH!
    So you'll need about 267.000 clicks to make 100k a month in revenue, not talking about pure profit.

    You probably need to look how much clicks, leads, sales you could get with your budget

    Good luck!

      I don't know if this question is because of naivete, a social experiment or plain crazy.

      You cannot get that kind of info from a public forum and expect to get handed the keys to unlock the secret to get that sum of money--monthly!

      You pay for that privileged info. Even then, there are no guarantees.

      It's not bad to dream, but you have to plant your feet firmly on the ground. You set yourself up with this kind of question. Bonkers is the first thing that comes to mind.

    100k per month and fun, little investment, no blog, no digital product, little work...

    It could be achieved over time, but the beginning stages would require a lot of work, especially since you don't want to invest much money.

    I knew a drug dealer once...

    Here's the deal, even if you had $1000 (low investment) and an affiliate paying you a commission of $500 per sale...

    If you ran a ppc campaign with a mere .10 cent (cost per click) CPC (hard , but not impossible) you would get 10,000 potential visitors to your site.

    Of those 10,000 potential buyers, 25% opt in to your FREE offer ( your list) of which, you now have 2500 people (again on your list) and you saw a sales conversion of a meager 2% of that list who actually buy the product...

    You would have 50 sales x $500 commission, you would earn $25,000.

    Now, do this 4x per month = $100k.

    You would net $100k. Easy peasy, get to work, stop daydreaming, and when it works kick me 10%... per month, and in 12 months you're a millionaire... Wah-lah!

    If only it were that easy!

        I never said I didn't want to work as I clearly stated I currently own a service business. I also indicated two areas that I would NOT be interested in as I am one of those rare souls who actually wants to do something that she loves that offers massive value and makes massive money.

        In short, I was hoping for responses such as, have you considered high ticket affiliate marketing or something along those lines. My end goal is something that is scalable, enjoyable to me so I stick with it, with high growth potential.

    If you're looking to build ONLY ONE model to produce this income, I suggest you look into SAAS

    The challenge to SAAS is finding the right NEED to meet

    B2C, in my mind, is a tougher road to hoe.

      Art, the scenario you described would be gross earnings, not net.

      You still have to account for business expenses and taxes.

      In the USA, this would require a gross of $150k or more depending on state taxes.

      You do pay your taxes, don't you?

    You asked a public forum, many of whom do not make $10 per month online, how you can make $100,000 per month (net income of course, because $100,000 in revenue is chump change).

    And to put the icing on the cake, without investing much money (although, to you "much money" could be $5,000,000+, so please clarify) without creating content, or creating products, or spending much time online... LOL, see the issue yet?

    Yes, that is quite the uncommon goal, not many people want to make a lot of money doing something they enjoy. Most people want to break their back not making any money.

    Anything is scaleable, but I would seriously doubt, based on your post(s), that you'll put the time and effort in and/or have the ability. If your expectation is $100,000 per month, you will likely quit long before you get there ala most people who come here and ask the same type of questions.

    To original poster.......

    Simple - Offer coaching at $1,000 - $5,000 on "XYZ niche subject area".

    How many of those $1,000 - $5,000 sales would you need to make each month to hit your target?

    Not many right.

    What you can't do that? too much time, effort, not enough credibility?

    Well, wrong answer my friend.

    the question you need to asking yourself is:

    "How do I find enough clients who are looking for HELP on "XYZ" where I can help them 1 on 1 with achieving their "XYZ" goals, answers, etc etc".

    Where does your PERFECT client hang out?

    Facebook?

    Forums?

    Twitter?

    Youtube?

    Find out where they are, create your coaching outline, create your first few training sessions, create the rest once you get your first client(s).......

    Add more as you continue, you'll learn from your 1st few clients results, add those findings into your program, help more people, get testimonials, increase conversions, get even more clients and so on and so on......

    Getting started is the hardest thing to do.

    How do I know this?

    Because I DO coaching myself.

    I've had potential clients come to me for help who have had all the advice in the world given to them but STILL NEVER END up taking any action.

    What are you going to do?

    hope you fall into the top 1% of action takers who aren't afraid of getting their feet wet no matter if they have perfect or imperfect information at their disposal.

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    Start reading all the failed history in startup in near past. Spend at list 7-8 hour in a day by reading their failed history, why they fail, how the fail and what should they do ??

    After one month you will discover how to earn $100k in a month, I guarantee you.

    100K is no big deal and you don't need to risk any money upfront. Who wants risk or to get tied down with to much work. Most Warriors make that kind of money.

    I do want to warn you that your taxes will be high in some places over 50% so that is something you need to pay attention to making the 100K is the easy part being compliment is HARD!

      Let's see

      You want:
      1. To make $1,200,000 per YEAR
      2. To not spend any money
      3. To NOT work alot
      Yah - that's downright laughable....

                Okay, maybe you are willing to do some work and invest some money, and you've named a couple of business models that don't appeal to you. Fine.

                But you have to admit that your opening post sounds an awful lot like someone making their first post, having no idea what they're talking about, and riding the high from some late night infomercial.

                That said, making $100k per month, net, can be done because it has been done. The question at hand is how you can do it.

                You already know about the hours-for-dollars trade, even owning a service business. There is some leverage available to you, maybe. Can you make the step from performing the service to managing others who do perform the service? I'm looking at the model of someone who goes from being, say, a real estate agent to a broker with agents working for them.

                Another approach is to use the business to finance non-business investments, like commercial real estate. Build an empire, over a span of years, and hire someone to manage it. Your time is spent on high-level activities, not on the day to day business.

                As you see, there are ways to do it. You'll likely work longer and harder than you want to in the beginning, but the end goal of having a high income without spending every waking moment chained to a computer is a viable long term goal.

                In your place, I would be looking at a combination of business and investments.

          Because i'll tell you - the people that DO make 6 figures per month or more (myself included) work much more than a couple hours a day...

          Business experience is nice and all, but it really doesn't give you an advantage in something like Internet Marketing when you're brand new...

            The best advice I could give anyone that wants to work the least amount possible is to automate everything that is capable of being automated, but makes sense to automate. It obviously needs to be cost effective, no sense automating a task or process that isn't performed often enough to make automating it at this time worthwhile.

            Hire inexpensive VA's and use something like Camtasia to create video's to train them with. Then if you hire more, you already have the video's.

            If you end up spending too much time dealing with a bunch of VA's, then promote/train one of the VA's to a team leader and let them manage the VA's.

    Internetsweetie, by setting such a high goal, those here (who do pay attention) will 'remember' this thread, and depending upon what you do with the information here on the WF can impart; "make you -or- break you" in and throughout your future posts.

    While I admire anyone who aims high, "it's ones own ability and accuracy that allows them to hit the target."

    I think $100k a month as a longterm goal is doable, and more over, an insult to most here... who have tried to make $1000 a month, and failed.

    So, from a neutral prospective, "if when dodging glass bottles, be it best you strap on some good thick boots."

    I believe you need to do something that is super high risk and people do not wish to do for some reason. Typically, these occupations do not last very long as something bad will eventually happen to you. Basically, you need to take the money an run. Remember the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward that is waiting for you.

        You know I want to have xxx with Emilia Clarke but I doubt she's going to fall through the roof and land on my lap. If you find out a way to make $100k a month not building a blog, not creating a product and working minimal hours a day then tell me about it, it sounds like the perfect business model. Then package it up and you will make ten times that money a month.

    This is a simple question with only one answer: Win the lottery.

    Specifically, you need to win at least $24 million.

    After taxes you'll have around $12 million, which you can invest at around 10% a year, netting you the $1.2 million you desire.

    The reason I say winning $24 million in a lottery is the only answer is twofold. First, based on your stated unwillingness to actually to build a business, that lottery ticket is the only chance you have. Second, even if you work for it, your expectations are so out of whack with reality that you have almost no chance of being successful enough to hold your attention long enough to be ever achieve your goal.

    Therefore, barring some miraculous transformation of expectations and attitude, the lottery is the only chance you have.

  • Saw this again I got 1 100% sure way! Go to the central bank of your country and get a billion for free 0% or close to it (thousands of people do it no problem) then buy the bonds at a few percent then sit back! I guarantee it will work! It has a proven track record and if it fails you will get bailed out! 100K a month NO PROBLEM!

    This is one of those threads that sucks you in and it's hard not to reply - even though I know I shouldn't. You have a little history here, you say you are in business now, and other reasons makes it more interesting. So here goes.

    1. Do you realize how crazy and unreasonable your opening post sounds? Go and say the exact same thing to almost anyone at any mall or gathering almost anywhere in the world and they would all say you are crazy. Even the ones that I suspect ARE doing that or at least very well for themselves here are saying you are off with your request as you've worded it.

    What makes you think anyone can make $100,000 a month with little investment, little time, and limited willingness to do the things that typically get to the $100,000 online such as digital products or blogging? This is kind of like wanting to lose 150 pounds but not wanting to exercise, not wanting to change eating habits, not wanting to take medicine, etc. What are all the other real, secret ways?

    2. How much do you make now net monthly from your business? Just give a ballpark.

    3. I am 99.99999% positive that the kind person that sent you a PM with your life changing system is a scammer and/or the program is a scam. It happens here all the time. Why didn't they share it with everyone? Why only with the desperate privately? This has happened several times here - this exact same way and then the poster came back complaining about being scammed. I would highly advise you to NOT do it - no matter WHO is offering it and no matter WHAT it is until you post it here for public comments for safety reasons.

    Take it or leave it.

    Mark

    I would suggest finding a way to make $10K Per Month, then scale that, so you can that 10 times over and hit your goal of $100K Per Month. IMO, Offline Marketing is one of the best ways to at least start making $10K per month, then scale it by outsourcing overseas.
    Newsflash: You are going to have to invest in Marketing to find clients. :-)

      You wanted the help - you gave no info about what you do - what you know - what you earn now....and you expect everyone to hop to and give you REAL answers. After all, you are only asking for a little over a million a year....and you clearly list what you DO NOT intend to do.

      Your comments in this thread are similar to comments made in a previous thread - you've posted in an insulting way 7 times in this one thread.

      And you call other people 'snarky"???

      You got a PM - it's the answer you want - so go make $100k a month.

        Perhaps you didn't read all of the posts. The majority of the responses werent nice and I responded to them as they responded to me. Don't like the subject of a post, don't respond. It's that easy. It's AHMAZING to me how many replies this thread has gotten that were mean and rude and for what? Because I didn't ask a question in a way that some people liked or because people are resentful of my goal. Give me a break.

        Snarky begets snarky. See how it goes.

        Have a nice day. I wish you well in your endeavors and dont forget to THINK BIG.

          Don't like one answer...move on the next without comment. It's that easy.

          Problem is so many "you can do it" are a bunch of fluff info or sig exposure. Thanking those who tell you what you want to hear may not be taking the best advice. If the majority of responses - from experienced, successful marketers in particular - are "not nice" - maybe it's the question that is the problem.

          Seriously, I wish you luck in reaching your goal.

    This thread should be a sticky. By far one of the best threads on WF in a long time. At least in terms of humor.

    From my experience, your best chance up getting up to the 100k a month club...(is there a 100k a month club? lol) is to discover a way to earn a decent amount of money at any level, and then rack your brain on how you can start to scale it up.

    This might come across as an oversimplification to the OP's question, but you have to start somewhere right?

      Thanks. You're 100% right about scalability.
