If you can make $1 a day online, does it mean you can make $1000?

Making $1 is easy for some and for some it's really tough, especially if they factor in the cost involved.

I heard this many times on this forum. Just scale it up 100 times or 1000 times, then you will make good money online.

But is it really possible?

    sure, it's possible..

    especially after you see those few couple of dollars..

    it validated IM for me and motivated me to make much more.

    i can understand someone giving up after years of effort without any income but for those of us who get a taste of success and then give up...

    doesn't make any sense to me..

    best of luck,

    Yes it's possible but don't put all your eggs in the one basket - diversify your income streams and don't rely on any one niche, any single source of traffic, any one product, etc.. that's what scaling up means to me.

    If I lose 1 pound does that automagically mean I can lose 50 pounds? No.

    If I can run a 7:00 minute mile does that mean I can run a 4 minute mile just by scaling it up? No.

    The same applies here. Many folks will only earn the $1 (or $10/$17/$29/etc.) and never make another dime.

    There are many reasons for that but the point is that "just scale it up" is a worn out phrase that doesn't work more often than it does.

    Is it possible, though? Yes.

      yeah making a Dollar with Inbox Dollars and PTC sites is quite easy. But then scaling it up to $1,000...impossible!!

      So you are right it does not always work in many situations for many people.

      But in some situations with work and commitment it can

    Yes.

    I mostly hang out on niche forums. Since arriving on WF I've never known such a vast collection of marketers to complicate the online money-making process. Certain fields of IM can be complex, yes indeed, but when you're starting out in this business the trick is to keep it simple, and just get making money. A chap above, aizaku, made an extremely valid point, that has so far been overlooked: "especially after you see those few couple of dollars..it validated IM for me and motivated me to make much more." On a forum like WF, where negative posts are generally rewarded over positive posts (just wait and see in this very thread), I can certainly see how the newbie can be mislead into thinking that generating an online income is difficult, requires some Machiavellian system, takes months of tireless planning and effort. This is simply not true. IM is not for everyone. IM is beyond some people. But for those of you (speaking to the newbies now) with sufficient intelligence, communication skills, diligence, and (even) meagre startup funds, there should really be no problem. The chap I mention, aizaku, gives the best advice thus far. To paraphrase his advice: earn that first dollar. The majority of people on this forum will have you believe that earning your first dollar is like swimming across the Atlantic in a pair of cumbersome Garfield slippers. It is not. Not if IM is the field for you. To make your first dollar, do this: find a relevant source of traffic that you can tap into with affiliate promotions. To turn that dollar into one-thousand: scale-up the system that earned you the dollar, even if it means offering more promotional platforms to that traffic source or, indeed, seeking out further traffic sources. Seriously. It's not rocket science. If you're new to IM, my advice: have faith in yourself, post less on forums, and find out for yourself if my advice is good or not.

    I'm greatly into marketing and sales and know that it's easier to trust you with $1 than $10 and harder to trust you with $100.

    Just because you can make $1 doesn't mean you can make $1000. How is that possible?

    Some will say through rinse and repeat but it doesn't work that way.

    When it comes to making money online trust matters especially when it has to do with sales.

    If you are not involve in sales perhaps you need to build an outstanding profile with great reviews from users.

    If you are into ad network then Googe needs to trust your site to give it good ranking on the search engine through the type of links you build.

    In any way you go, it all boils down to trust.

    Build your trust first and learn about your business and what it takes to take you from $1 to $1000+.

      John, excellent point.

      I think I see where you are going. Instead of saying "hey look I made $1 ..now I can Scale up and shoot for $1,000 day."

      It should be "hey how did I make that dollar and how did I make it as it relates to the Relation Building part of the equation."

      If the dollar was gained out of randomness or just trying to get enough "crap" stuck on the wall by trying over and over again and NOT based on more genuine ways then it falls flat and you will just spin your wheels.

      People need to take a step back and really analyze how that "first Dollar" came into their pockets

    Of course you can. However, it depends on your business model. If you can finish a fiverr project of your client of $20 in 1 hour, it doesn't mean that you can scale it up to $200 per day because you just don't have enough hours or you can't have enough projects. However, you can scale a successful campaign on Bing PPC.

    So, It depends on the scaleability and leverage of your business model

    *** IT DEPENDS !!! ****


    It depends on what is scalable the method itself.

    As an example: if you earnt the money just by clicking ads, or uploading videos, or doing whatsoever which are not scalable.... you cannot turn it into millions.

    What is a business you can scale?

    Email Marketing!

    In fact once you've mastered how to write good emails, and put up a good opt-in page,
    the only problem you have is to DELIVER TRAFFIC.

    And you can pay for it, or learn some basic seo, or both.

    That's a business you can scale 1 to 1000 and more.

    No, it's BS that other marketers like to feed noobs so that they can fleece them. You make $360/year online? Whatever. The average IMer makes $2,000/year or less. Will they ever scale it up? Nope!

    That's why I tell people to lay off the cool-aid. If you wanna do this to supplement your retirement accounts ($2,000/year is decent interest) that's awesome. But if you're hoping to make 6+ figures a year, forget it. You have about the same chance of doing that as you would winning the lottery.

    Don't buy into the dreams of scaling income and golden unicorns...they're illusions.

    Yes.

    There are some really good points in this thread, which I'd like to reiterate.

    Take a look at that $1 that you made, how did you make it?

    What it a service you sold? A product?
    Was it sold through your website? A particular page?
    Did specific content make the sale?

    Identify how you made that $1, if necessary ask a consumer for some feedback. What grabbed their attention or gained their trust, convincing them to buy from you. Or check out the acquisition tool in Google Analytics.

    Then build on this. Try and improve what is already working. And change what isn't.

    Do you have any idea how much difference between $1 & $1000? It is really too much distance. It is not easy to earn $1000. One can earn easily $1 within 30 minutes, but it is not possible to earn $1000 for everyone. Thanks

    Most big successes start small. The process that raked in $1 when appropriately scaled up will rake in $1000. It may require more time, work and experience. Anyone who has made $1 has the potential to make $1000 and even more if the person does not give up. Just cheer up!

    I heard this many times on this forum. Just scale it up 100 times or 1000 times, then you will make good money online.

    But is it really possible?
    Well. I say Hooty, but I'm really directing this post to the following:

    1. Hooty, should he or she return.

    2. Discrat, who I may decide to torture with paragraph-walls.

    3. "Experts," who would have us believe that the difficulty of earning money online is on a par with asking a neighbourhood cat, we'll call him Precious Winklebottom III, to pen the works of William Shakespeare with a pen and paper, when everyone knows that cats have zero facility for handwriting, a lack of opposable thumb being the clue, and instead prefer typewriters, laptops, or tablets.

    4. The frustrated, who, struggling to find success, feel decidedly clever and better about themselves by pointing out that anyone purpoting to be successful is merely a charlatan, and, by that rationale, just as much of a useless lump, albeit a less honest useless lump, and may be in need of a confidence boost (by yours truly).

    5. Dan, who I know reads every post religiously, and if not then he certainly should on his Rockefeller income, thanks of course to the good folks at Freelancer, who I suspect would not take kindly to Dan missing a single post and, instead, choosing to rub bronzed ladies all over himself and receive a string of Mai Tais from the attending suntan lotion. Wait. Reverse that.

    6. Anyone struggling, "Experts" included, who may need motivation (if only in secret) and a point in the right direction.

    So.

    The question is: if an internet marketer can earn $1 by doing something, can they earn $1,000 by scaling-up that something?

    The answer is yes.

    We are not talking about scaling $1 to 10 billion dollars. This is 1 dollar to 1,000.

    But the answer is not as simple as saying yes, and now that I have a few minutes to explain, that's just what I'll do.

    Yes depends on 5 factors:
    • Ability.
    • Available time.
    • Finances.
    • The system (that earned the $1).
    • Profit margins.
    Now, your typical IM forum is replete with vague generalizations, so let me give you a concrete example.

    Let us say that the following system earns you $1 on Monday:
    • You have a squeeze page.
    • On the Thank You page are 7 different PPL offers.
    • Each PPL affiliate offer pays you a $1 commission.
    • You generate traffic to that page with 10 Youtube videos.
    • On Monday, those videos received 1,000 views.
    • You received 4 subscribers, one of whom earned you $1 (from a PPL).
    So! That - is your system. Bit lame. Bit basic. But you earned a buck, hurrah for you.

    Tuesday morning.

    You plop down into your office chair, crank up some Neil Sedaka (or whatever the cool kids are listening to now; Sinatra, maybe?) and you look at your affiliate stats. "A buck!" you cry. "That's-" and you're about to say how lousy it is, but then you think: "Can I scale it?" You remember a post written by Tom, in which a dozen clowns tell Tom what a clown he is for suggesting such heresy as scaling one dollar into one thousand, and you say to yourself, and incidentally Precious Winklebottom III who happens to be perched on the windowsill tapping out Romeo and Juliet, "Hell with it. I'll give it a try!"

    Question is, how do you try? In this scenario, you see, there is more than one answer.

    How number one:
    • I'm getting 1,000 views a day and those are earning me $1 a day.
    • How can I earn $1,000?
    • Answer: I need 1,000,000 views a day.
    How number two:
    • I have 7 PPL offers on that Thank You page.
    • Every day someone registers with 1, earning me $1.
    • What if I can encourage the average person to register 4, earning me $4?
    • I now need 250,000 views on my videos each day.
    How number three:
    • Okay, I've worked out how to average 4 PPLs from one person. Great.
    • But what if I find some PPLs that convert better?
    • And what if those PPLs also pay more?
    • I do my homework.
    • Instead of averaging $4 from 1,000 views, I'm now hitting $8.
    • I now need 125,000 views on my videos each day.
    How number four:
    • I create, publish, and rank videos.
    • I outsource the very same work, too.
    • I make another squeeze page, but in a different niche.
    How number five:
    • Youtube traffic is nice.
    • Google traffic is nice (since I'm ranking there).
    • But, you know, that it?
    • I get an idea.
    • Syndication!
    • People love videos, so I'll syndicate them around the web.
    • And this also helps my rankings in YT and in G.
    • Wa-hey!
    I could go on, but I'm getting bored.

    Now, if you're new to IM, you're in a tricky situation. Do you believe the naysayers? After all, they're "keeping it real," and what sensible chaps they are, right? Or do you believe the positive people, encouraging you to take action? It is - no question - a tricky situation. The naysayers, you see, do have a point. The vast majority of the positive people are indeed looking to fleece you, as someone (I forget now) pointed out, but what I'm hoping is this: I've uncovered enough of the process for you to at least have confidence that scaling (on this level) may indeed be a real thing. In the world I live in online, a world a great deal different to WF, people like myself know that it exists because we practice scaling. It is what we do. How we pay the bills. Point is - we know. The question is, are you going to find out the truth for yourself?

    If you're not making decent money in IM right now, and if I was in your shoes, I would at least try. To hell what the crabby naysayers say. Give it a try. I rarely find anything to reply to on WF these days, but this thread resonates with me. It is, you see, one of the secrets to my own success. I find out how to make one commission, whether it's a dollar or more, and then I figure out how to make more of them. Every day.

    Give it a try yourself. It works for me.

    - Tom

  • I mean... theoretically, I suppose it's possible. I'd guess what those people are saying is that if you're running an advertising campaign that makes you a profit, even $1, then it's a winning campaign and you should be able to scale it up and make more money. But it doesn't always work like that. You can run the same exact advertising campaign one week, make money, and the next lose money. It's not an exact science.

    If it was that easy, then everybody would be doing it. People always brag about how much they make, but rarely talk about how much they had to spend to make that money. Why? Because they know when you pull back the covers and see the real deal, then things probably won't look as glamorous as you thought.

    If you watch the TV shows Dragon's Den and Shark Tank, then you will see many companies like this. Touting that they earned 6 or 7 figures, but when asked about their profits, some of them only made a small fraction of that if any profit at all. Like I said, if making money was that easy - especially online - then everybody would be doing it. Heck, everybody would be Rich!

    But truth is, is that most people don't make much money online at all and end up failing and falling by the wayside. And on the flip side, a portion of people do very well.

    But everyone's road to success could be a different one. It could be a combination of knowledge, skill, dedication, persistence, consistency, luck, network, support system, startup cash, ongoing funding, resilience, ethics or lack thereof, politics and the list goes on.

    Just because one person did it, that doesn't mean everyone can. Sometimes regardless of what everyone says, you might have to literally carve out your own road to success based on your own personal circumstances. But overall, yes it is possible to scale, just don't believe the hype and take everything into consideration. "Just scale it up!" sounds easy for anyone to spit out, but some people may have to move mountains to make it happen, while for others it will literally be a walk in the park.

      Not necessarily.
      Health, injuries, accidents, kids that become sick, divorces, mental illness.

      These are examples that "could" get in the way.

      Someone could be totally capable of making the $1,000 but because of extenuating circumstances at the moment they can't

    Yes it is possible. Once you start making you $1 per day consistently, you will obviously have found something that works and you can continue to build on and scale up. Scaling up on it, in my opinion, is better to branch out to other areas of the same niche that you can pull an income from and therefore creating a multiple income stream for yourself. Think of it like you open a shop that sells strictly newspapers. After selling a few every day you decide maybe people want some morning coffee or a chocolate bar so you supply those products aswell. 2 income streams. It's easy when you think about it.

    I think you could do $1,000 to $2,000 a week with a simple buy-low and sell-high business model. $1,000 to $2,000 a week isn't really "side money", but you could definitely make it happen it with nights and weekends.

    I got pretty close to that range just flipping things on eBay/Craigslist/forums in middle school, but I've refined my efforts since. Much better to have the supplier ship the product for you, and own your own sales page independent of eBay. That way you have your own brand, so you can justify higher margins. Plus, you can use the sales page to collect e-mails, write a blog to engage potential customers and spread the word, use pixels to re-target visitors with ads to remind them to buy.

    How did you make the $1? On Fiverrr? Then no, you probably can't scale up to $1,000.

    There's a lot of good advice on this thread. Look at how you made the $1 and admit to yourself if you truly have a scalable business model.

    We can't answer without knowing how you made the $1.

    Yes that is possible, that means that people are trusting and like your offer.

    But it would be better if you will not settle in one kind of business try to have variety

    soon your value will increase and from there it will be a lot easy to get your target

    Yes. After you get these few dollars, and this feeling of making money becomes like an addiction, I mean very strong addiction, it's possible. But sometimes it doesn't work like that, because some people very quickly loose their motivation...

    Why not! Not sure I would want to do it earning just a dollar each time but something I see is people jump all around hoping to find the perfect opportunity that is going to dump cash into our accounts without us doing much work. That does not exist but with some hard work, dedication and commitment then again why not...

    I personally have had a few $1,000 days. It does not happen all the time (yet) but when I started it was very hard to just make my first $1

    I started a campaign a couple of weeks ago and this is just with 1 clickbank product. How about having 5 or 7 of these sites set up!

    This has turned into a really good thread.

    One thing I would add is the power of leveraging your time. If you have to do all of the work it is hard to make $1k every month, especially if you are doing it part time.

    If you can leverage your time through outsourcing, and scaling a rinse and repeat money making system. getting to $1k and beyond is easy. What is hard is getting enough Internet marketing skills to ever get to that point.

    That is why doing what you like best and outsourcing the rest becomes so important if you really want to make income at the $1k.mo, $1k/day level. If you do not have money to outsource then you will have to invest your time to get the skills and put in the work.

    Of course it is possible, but will you?

    This thread reminds me of looking at concentric circles of knowledge.

    Everyone starts out in the centre with a level of knowledge.

    Over time if they progress they start to understand what is outside their area of understanding.

    With each progression outwards you start to realise it is the things you don't know you don't know are where the real profits are made.

    Get on and seek what it is you don't know you don't know yet.

    Keep growing and understand there is always something you don't know and seek that knowledge out.

    Breakthroughs come when you recognise the small bits of an equation that can have huge impacts on your outcome.

    For example.

    I'd looked at the splinter offers Digital Marketer has offered for years but it was only when I was recently watching a short presentation that I realised I had a huge databank of content that I had already been paid for but could re-use as offers to entice clients to join recurring memberships.

    I immediately chose one of my popular pieces of content and modelled what I'd learned,

    With each breakthrough you unlock an opportunity to catch a glimpse of what it is you don't know.

    When you catch that glimpse perhaps take a closer look because there might be a stepping stone you hadn't considered just waiting for your foot fall.

    Best regards,

    Ozi

    Well to get a $1,000 day as an affiliate you could do any of the following:
    • Sell 1,000 x products for $1 commission each = $1,000
    • Sell 100 x products for $10 commission each = $1,000
    • Sell 10 x products for $100 commission each = $1,000
    • Sell just 1 x product for $1,000 commission = $1,000
    Which do reckon is the easiest way to a $1,000 day?

    Yes but you ask, where do you find a product that gives $1,000 commission? Surely you have to create your own product to get this, with all the difficulties that involves.

    A sales funnel will often start with a low priced item, say ($27 - $47), usually one or more upsells, (maybe $97 - $397) then a recurring sales item – (e.g. a monthly membership site $27-$47 per month), and then high ticket items, the most valuable offers – including coaching, consulting, done for you solutions, masterminds, live events (these could be anything from $1,997 to five figures).

    When you see affiliate programs where the vendor is offering 100% commissions on the front end and first upsells, it is not because they are being extremely generous and throwing their money away. NO, it is because they make their real money in the back end. They need your sales so that they will get the big commissions at the end and that is not usually shared with the affiliate who introduced the buyer to the funnel.

    So how can you get part of that back end business without creating your own product?

    In the last month I have had 2 x $1,000 sales as a partner in a program which provides me with valuable training and a high converting high-ticket offers.

    I did this by driving targeted traffic to those high converting offers. I get sales. I am only using free traffic.

    Yes there is a cost to join this program and the entry level for these commissions is $1,997, so you could argue that I have only made a $3 profit!!! But that was a one off payment. And my sales will continue as I scale this up.

    For my purchase I receive comprehensive training and support, a licence to use the sales funnels, three live coaching sessions a week for the first three months, live broadcasts in the private Facebook group, google hangouts and fantastic support from other partners.

    I appreciate this route isn’t for everyone. It is not a sit back and do nothing money making system. There is work involved and an initial investment. But it has taken away the part I didn’t enjoy which is creating the product and converting sales, and leaves me with the part I enjoy which is giving value, getting free traffic, building a list and giving value to my list.

    I don't think what you earn now is any indication of what you could earn.

    I have 1 site and it makes me $50 some months and $250 in other months. Average payout is $30 per new customer.

    I am struggling to increase it. If only I could double it.

    well I don't think so , Making 1$ may be easy but 1000$ is quite complicated task.I don't know why people think about online world is a magic.More will be the hardword more will be the earnings.So do not think in that way.Upgrade your skills you will earn much more.

    yes it surely is possible but you can not just rely on it wholly.
    the beginning is the toughest part though.

    Sometimes... scaling doesnt work linearly.

    I've purchased 100 clicks before, and got 6 sales!
    Then Ive purchased 500 clicks and only 16 sales.

    Scaling could only increase your revenue by a certain percentage. ultimately its hard to know until you try.

    But if youre at that point where you say "okay, we are finally making a profit, time to x it" then its a good problem to have.
