My First Ever Over 10K Week

17 replies
I've been trying my hand on and off with online marketing for about 6 years. I've wracked up more failures than most people would ever care to admit. I had 3 successes. Kindle Books, I sold nearly 100,000 copies over a 4 year period (so, not a huge amount of money, and it's dwindled down to less than 100 dollars a month now).

My next success was in product selling on Amazon and shopify and creating popular facebook pages and I still do that, but, I pretty much have my fiance managing it, as well, it bored me, and I didn't feel like I was contributing.

Finally, I started selling client and customer acquisition services for Brick and Mortar Financial Service businesses (real estate, financial advisors, loan officers--main business)--Other people that fall into my funnel I also help. I charge 1,600 monthly to create and manage their funnel and they pay for all of their marketing, I either charge it 500 weekly (auto transfer), or in a bulk some .

I've just been enjoying the money, 10 to 13K monthly coming in before advertising. But, I decided to run my marketing full throttle with a direct mail campaign to a large amount of local businesses, advertising a free consult, and then facebook push (going up to 200 a day in advertising and putting out a couple of different ads). My total advertising cost was 2,785.33, of that I got 12 strategy sessions and sold 5 people into my funnel program. But, that's only 8k for the week. But, I had been running my marketing consistently for the last two months (all local facebook marketing), for a total cost of 6k (100 a day) and I was making my big push, so I did a series of broadcast messages just dumping information on them.

Literally every step they could take to grow their business exponentially and I got an additional 12 people signed up to check out the program and I sold another 2 programs, but they were full programs (they wanted the full training system instead of the managed leads system which I sell for 2,500 dollars and work with them for 2 hours.) Bringing my total to 13K for the month. Now, clearly, since I've been producing 10 to 13K a month from my current advertising over the last two months, I'm not adding in the 6K in advertising cause it already paid for itself. So 2,785.33 and a 13k week... making my total 10,214.67, or the first time I've made more than 10K a week.

So, just a message for everyone out there. Never give up. It took me six years to get consistently good. I'd spent over 30K on my marketing. Would have to give up for a time, get a real job and pay bills and then try again. But now, I'm generating leads, and transforming businesses and lives. Never give up.

    Thanks so much for sharing us your case study,

    Yes as you said, it takes time of doing trails and errors before seeing good money coming into your bank account, especially when it comes to make money online.

    Thanks again

    Its funny that its the people that lose in the beginning that end up winning in the end because they have the commitment to keep on trying.

    It comes down to the individual in the end.

    Any good marketer would have failed at something at some point, its how they react that determines their future.

    Well done.

      I have always said that people who are highly successful have loked at the Failures as really Successes.

      Without the Failures ,you fail to gain knowledge and insight about what works and what doesn't.
      Plus, it gives you true grit and develops stamina to carry you forward in a most positive way

      Nothing to see here including a Sig so just move on :)

      I'm using Clickfunnels, I absolutely love it, it's my favorite funnel creating service. I've used a lot of them. Leadpages, Leadpops, Optimizepress, but Clickfunnels is by far the best system I've ever used.

    Quitters never win, winners never quit.

    Goes to show what persistence and dedication can do when combined. I guess it does take a while for all of us to find out what we are good at and scale it to the max.

    Well done.

    Oh, one other quick lesson that came to mind, for people out there thinking of entering consulting. You have to be picky with your clients and have to know when to separate from them. My first ever client that paid me 1,600 a week had it in his mind that I should do everything including make the sales calls, go out and meet the clients with one of his people, so forth and so on. He wouldn't make changes to his site, didn't want the funnel technology cause he couldn't use his software and couldn't have it secured the way he wanted it... it was a disaster and 5 months later he had no sales and I had a client that I didn't have success with. I got more clients along the way that I did see success with cause I knew I had to vet, explain what I was going to do, what my role was, what their role was, and what was needed for them to succeed.

    Always approach clients with the idea of abundance, cause there's always more people, and when you speak to them like that, with what will get the most for them, you'll filter out hte people that aren't serious, you'll get the people that are serious, and you'll make a lot of money in the process.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, your story is quite inspirational!

    I remember when I made my first 40 bucks early this year, I was so happy, a few weeks later I realize that really wasnt a lot of money, but I kept fighting, and right know im making between 1500 and 2000 dollars per month, I know is not a lot of money yet, but is enough for paying the bills and stuff like that, and im confident I will keep increasing my earnings if I keep working hard.

    Stories like yours really help to keeping the hope alive!.
