The Secret To My First Five Figure ($10,000+) Day

37 replies
A lot of advice is thrown around here and there.. some of it is gold.. and some of it not so much..

...So it's probably confusing for most people who are just starting out..

Well, here's a no frills peak behind the curtain of achieving a 5 figure day online.. of what's worked for me personally..but.. as ever, YMMV..

First things first.. you're not gonna break the 5 figure mark on your first day... and not on your second day either and will probably take a lot longer than those shady sales pages tell you..

But like everything else worth having, it takes effort and you gotta start somewhere, right?

In my experience... and in my experience only.. You aim to make and leverage powerful contacts.. this is more than just sending emails asking for help..

..You've probably already been told to help the 'leaders' in whatever niche you're in.. I saw a thread on here only last week recommending that you essentially become a servant to the big names in your niche.. That's not the way to go.

You do help them out though..

..and HOW you help them is the important part.. You make money for them (and yourself).

Become their affiliate, market their products to your list.. take a slice of each sale for yourself and happy days.

Once you're sending a healthy volume of sales to them, you'll get on their radar.. then you can actually turn them into a valuable contact.. instead of just sending some generic email begging them to let you work for free.

Don't become subservient. Nobody wants that not even the respected names in your niche want to take advantage of you or anybody else.

Just be respectful without being arrogant.. and you'll get the respect you deserve; you're sending them sales.. helping them to grow their business and it's mutually beneficial.

At this time it's a good idea to scale up and create your own products., become a value provider in your niche..

Now, because you've been promoting influential people and have already established contact with them, the right way.. giving them free access to your product and letting them check it out for themselves is a smart move.. if they like it, then there's no harm in asking them to return the favour and send a quick email to their list... they in turn will become your affiliate, which again is mutually beneficial for you both.

Of course you don't leverage just one contact, you leverage multiple. So when the time comes to launch your product, you've got a bunch of trusted and influential figures in your niche ready to give you a massive boost.

Entrepreneurs frequently break 6 or 7 figures a day with this approach.

It's not fast.. it takes time and effort.. but would you really expect anything less considering the results?

    Just to summarize:
    • Marketers tend not to earn $10,000 on Day 1.
    • Must apply effort.
    • Affiliate market products & services from market influencers.
    • Acquire contacts by doing so.
    • Give them a free look at your product.
    • Talk them into becoming your affiliate.
    • Rinse and repeat.
    • Must apply effort.
    My initial reaction to your post: clickbait, followed by generic advice. By the time I got to the end? It's not bad. Solid advice. (Slim, but what exists is accurate.) Put it this way: it's one way of getting $10K days.

    Just so long as you fill in the blanks.

      As you know yourself Tom, there are so many variables involved it wouldn't be possible to include everything in a forum post..

      We'd probably have to go into stuff like...
      • Niche research
      • Lead generation
      • List automation
      • Split testing.. pretty much everything.
      • Site copy
      • Choosing the right affiliate products
      • Traffic generation strategies

      And a whole bunch of other stuff I doubt either of us has the time to devote to writing about on here.

        Agreed, Michael. I think my initial post appears a bit negative but that wasn't the intention. (Just converying my thoughts as I read through your post.) I think more specific insights from your experience would certainly enhance the post, even a minor one here and there, but overall I enjoyed the read. You've given the bones of a solid plan.

    you've got my attention Michael

    now what are you going to do
    to make your 10k day a reality?

    I had a 20k day before on my own,
    this is good territory.

    Maybe a group effort is even better.
    Just came back from the beach:
    A german had the formular for the

    "NEXT APPLE"

    he's cool in the Eu, but wants to
    venture out to the US

    I said: "Give me AUS and NZ"

    he said; Why not?

    Entrepreneurs! what would the world
    be - without them?

      It's a shame that you see 5 figures as outlandish.. when I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I've never broke 6 figures.

      And don't put any faith in screen shots.. they're not evidence.

      But when I think about this proof thing.. it does open up a whole can of worms..

      See I don't like the insinuation that I'm lying, but I do understand why..

      While I've never broke the 10k barrier SOLELY on the Warrior Forum (yet), I have come damn close.

      So here's what I'd like you to do, if you need proof for yourself, from a third party source that we both know.. contact the WF helpdesk.. ask them to VERIFY that ... through Warrior Payments, I was responsible for over $8k in sales.. in around 24 hours.

      That is, if you think I'm full of crap. The proof is here for you.

    well i havent broken 4 figures a day yet, let alone 5...

    but i can tell you my success online happened when i connected with other people.

    a lot of newbs think that because its the internet, they dont need to get in touch with other people..

    the real magic happens when you partner up with ppl in your space..

    Here is a step by step plan i read on Noah Kagan's site (from a guest blogger) on how to get to 10,000 visits a month, you find a lot of it is about contacting other people/influencers in your niche.. not as an underling but as an equal:

        Ah lad. You're not the only one this has happened to. I've had this happened to be several times after earning 100's in commissions from them. This is why I have second thoughts about touching Amazon without a 10 foot pole.

        I don't get it. You bring them consistent sales without using shady selling practices and they still shut your account down!

          The business model, in theory is sound.. but in practice the low conversion rate means you're gonna have to send a load of traffic to Amazon to make it worthwhile.

          Or target high ticket items.

          And even in that case, if you're able to sell a substantial amount then doing it for yourself, instead of for Amazon, would give bigger returns.

          On balance I suppose Amazon does have trust and as a result will have a higher conversion rate.

            Mike, the trick to making Amazon work isn't in the word "or" - change it to "and".

            Many very successful Amazon associates use a two-pronged attack.

            They recommend a lot of relatively low ticket items which carry a lot of add-on accessories or related items. Since Amazon uses the number of items sold to position you in their commission structure, more items equals higher commissions. If you can move enough items, this can double your commission rate or more.

            They also recommend items with higher tickets, so that they benefit from the increased commission level. Or they go for mid-level items that are typically sold in multiples.

            Last thing, if you are in the right niches, combining your own products with Amazon and other affiliate offers that fit with your products can make a nice add-on. If you're into email marketing, this can make for a nice bump in your revenue-per-subscriber.

              Thanks for that John.

              I've actually used that approach on a couple of my sites.. a tools / resources page that lists the stuff I use in my business.. with affiliate links where available..

              For example, using Camtasia is major for me.. but they don't have an affiliate program (from what I can see).. so I point to Amazon instead.

              Not much money in it, but the other day someone did make a relatively high ticket purchase.. so that was a nice little bonus for me.

    It's a plan and like any plan you have to fill in the blanks for yourself to make it work.

    I don't need proof of income - not that hard to know who's blowing smoke here and who isn't.

    Problem is - any plan that involves time/work/action/common sense - is immediately critiqued on the forum now as being "too simple" - "too broad" -
    blah de blah blah.

    If you posted a longer, more detailed thread - or a step by step post - you would criticized as "WSO coming soon" or "not everyone has the money to do that - where's the free method".

    There are people on this forum who DO make money - but the number is decreasing as the negativity and "posting to build my cred and show my sig" takes precedence over a discussion of a money making method or experience.

    Here is a step by step plan i read on Noah Kagan's site (from a guest blogger) on how to get to 10,000 visits a month,
    So - instead of asking logical or reasonable questions of someone posting about HIS income - you send people to a blog to read about something else? And that's WHY top earners who are selling to people on this forum - aren't posting here now.

      Kay, I read that article before stopping in here. It actually is somewhat related, as it talks about connecting with others in your space for mutual benefit. Only in Kagan's case, the result is web visitors instead of affiliate sales.

      True, Ike did not ask questions, but the link he dropped did validate the idea of working with influencers as peers rather than beggars.

    "and heaven forbid that we share value in our posts, why not keep every good idea, conversation or method in a titanium vault and deprive it from air.."

    well yes, thats why conversations like this only really blossom in private forums

    here you always get the nay sayers, that doubt anything you say. Just ignore them
    they are miserable on their own, and cannot make the distinction between fake
    claims and claims of real money made. And 10k/day is out of the question for those
    folks ever since their mommy took them off the daily milk supply.

    See, again valuable minutes wasted on these non-money-earners

    let's get back on topic: my 20k/day was offline, to only 1 customer

    that's the reason why I believe strongly in 1-on-1 relationships with top
    guys in top markets. I'm not good with crowds that buy a huge quantity
    of low ticket items. Just dont see how to entertain folks on that level,
    i get bored quickly for some reason.

    Well, at least this post cleared my own mind, now I know what to do, today.

    This thread makes me low.

    I really thought id have made a few sales by now. But nope zilcho. Whats worse is seeing all the people doing this affiliate stuff - it seems such a low form of existence. All those landing pages are making me feel sick, all the allusions to making loads of money if you do this or do that, it seems the whole industry is ruled on greed. I mean the affiliate marketers ARE a market and for whom to me seem to be ruthless fraudsters on the whole. The ne'er do wells and the real bottom of the barrel.

    I think I might be better off just watching porn and jacking off all day like I used to.

      Your experience sucks J.. and yeah you're right.. there are sharks around.. that's true in every area of commerce.. also in politics.. religion.. probably in every group of significant size there's gonna be shady types.

      But there are also decent people too.

      Affiliate marketing is huge..

      In at least 2 of my that niches that use affiliate marketing and have nothing to do with MMO or IM.. it's abundantly clear that most sellers care about the planet, care about humanity.. not all of them but the guys with solid reputations do..

      I think they realise there's no harm in profiting from something as long as the desire to profit doesn't outweigh the desire to deliver value.

      You're talking about the Make Money market. There is a whole world of affiliate marketing beyond MMO.

      Things I've personally made money with:

      Guitar Lessons - This has become much tougher due to free YT videos.

      MMORPG guides and sign-ups - There is massive money in games. Read my lips; MASSIVE!

      Windows Registry Cleaners - Never had a refund.

      Homemade Wine - Also suffering from free YT videos.

      Stop Smoking - Still pretty popular.

      This is just a small example of what's possible. It's also much easier to make sales if you get in on an underserved niche or product.

      Something I'm currently involved in is mobile CPI (Cost Per Install).

      Do some research beyond MMO.

        Agreed, when you step outside MMO and IM, with some niches it's like shooting fish in a barrel.

        Leads aren't as aware of.. or as hip to our psychological tactics.

        And product creators don't have the same crazy number of affiliates promoting for them.. so it's a lot easier to get on their radar.

If we just focused all of our efforts on reaching our goals through researching ways on how we could improve, being an expert on our niche, landing the proper prospects, and things like those.

      Spot on.

      There's more than enough people that are gonna tell you to give up, that it's not possible.. all because they just don't have the business acumen to make it happen themselves.

      Sad but that's why it's vitally important to be selective about who you allow into your network.. who you spend time with.. and whose advice you listen to.

    I think we have to be realistic, very few people earn $10k a day online. Very few people are making more than $100 a day online. I think people need to set themselves goals that are going to be achievable.

    Sure it is possible to make $10k a day, but that's going to be a long term goal for most people. If you are reading this thread and just starting out, maybe set yourself a target of making an extra $500 a month to begin with, that's just under $20 a day.

    Once you start getting results you can refine what you are doing, ramp it up, and increase your income.

    I think this advice, while its true in concept, will become increasingly difficult to achieve as its described.

    Remember the constant drumming and mad rush to "build a list?" So important to build a list, right? But then those who built their list whored it out to every seller under the sun. What happened? They burned their lists. They diluted them. Gave them to better marketers and content creators. The whole point was to have an asset that you control, but people lost sight of the proper value of their list.

    End result? Growing number of people are a lot more careful about what and who they promote.

    Blog commenting, guest posting, these are more examples of the method getting inverted because people misunderstood the real lasting value. Influencer marketing is going to get saturated. Well it already is. Listen to the influencers now. They are bombarded by people trying to "get on their radar." If you are sending them enough sales to break down any barrier to them promoting you, then I think its safe to say you don't need advice on how to make 10k in a day.

    But the harsh reality is you'll still need to overcome several objections to them promoting for you. Do they like you? Do they like your product? Your website? What credibility do you have? Why should they promote you over the dozens of other people asking the same thing? Just selling their stuff is not enough for them to promote you. Its not a relationship yet. They have to want to promote you.

    This brings me to my pivotal point: You still need to compete. Its not easy. Its not guaranteed, even if you deliver sales. And besides, there is a better way to a 10k day. Faster too. Oh, and the side benefit is you will establish the best asset to attract JV partners.

    Its called the "internal launch."
    Build your list. (so many ways to do this now!)
    Consistently provide them the value they expected when they opted in.
    Launch your product to your list.
    Track your EPC

    Now you have actual metrics to share with potential JV's. In other words, you have credibility. Now they can take you seriously. You are an expert in your niche, not another sucker fish in the influencer's aquarium. Far more effective when reaching out from this position.

    It's very reasonable to hit a 10k day on your own with this method. But now instead of a 10k day, you can attract multiple JV's and potentially crush 10k.

    I guess if you're gonna have to put in the effort anyway, I consider this the better ROI. that's just me though.

    That's actually a REALLY big deal. I'm not sure regular folks will get how powerful that it.

    Give massive value before ever just asking and you'll reap the rewards later. That word later kills us all, especially in the marketing game.

    I remember thinking I'd be fine with just dealing with no money initially - with the gold and women showering me later on.

    NOPE, I found myself getting anxious and then bout everything and tried to rob and steal.

    Went nowhere until I took to heart everything the OG's said under their breathe. It works when you understand it and embrace it.

    But on the surface, nothing gets through.

    But thank you for pointing people to the fact that it is a long term process. Not saying you cannot come out of the gates swinging BIG, but it's usually a progression that sometimes is faster for some than others

      Yup.. good point Robert, and then in a lot of cases they keep wondering.. year after year, why they aren't seeing any results from jumping from one get rich scam to the next.

    I have only been able to make a little over $3k in a week through reselling on eBay. Still nowhere near $10k in 24 hours.

    This is an interesting approach and can definitely vouch for working hard and doing one thing at a time as oppose to trying to get rich in a week.

    Shoot it took me 3 months to make my first sale.

    Anyways great post.

      If you add those buyers to an email list.. which I think you can do once you've obtained permission (do double check that).. and then occasionally let them know about new developments in the market and relevant products you've got.. in time, making the jump from $3k upwards wouldn't be too much of a stretch.

    From my experience, it's been much easier for me to break 6 figures and approach 7 by simply selling my own stuff. I've done OK as an affiliate and playing the "balance" game, but I've done much better simply focusing intently on selling my own products and services. As soon as I broke out of the affiliate mindset all together, I rapidly scaled my income.

      Absolutely, that's what I've found too.

      Product creation is far more profitable, because.. as far as I can see, the amount of affiliates who want to promote stuff is crazy good.

        Yes, Selling your Own product will give you Real Profit.

        For New Bees they can sell the PLR Products.

        Where they will get Full rights to resell the Product with editing it.

        Also they can have the 100% Profit.

        Its too a Way to earn 5 Figure.

    I've been stuck for years in the affiliate mindset, and only been able to REALLY scale my business and be successful when I created my first product. Now years after I'm doing a combination of both and have HUGE success doing it.

    With that said for most people that's the right way to go about it... Sell other people's products to get the ball rolling, and you have massive reach and a list you've built go out there and create your own products.

    If you do it properly and ask the people on your list EXACTLY what they would buy, you'll make a fortune.

      That's it.. I use affiliate marketing to test the waters, see if it's a niche that's worth investing more time into.. if it is, then spend time creating new products.

    "On balance I suppose Amazon does have trust and as a result will have a higher conversion rate."

    absolutely true. In affiliate marketing after the first few years I have found that brands
    sell so much better than unknowns. It's hard to sell yourself and your own products
    for a very long time! - in comparison to selling established brands. And that's a tip for
    all affiliates: It's a thousand times easier to sell a global brand than to sell something
    new from a guy that only a few people know. And That's the real power of brands.

    Really? They close accounts that don't make much money? Weird, I don't think it costs them anything
