I just realized that I have made over 100K right here on the Warrior Forum.

17 replies
It has been almost 7 years since I joined this forum.

Don't let the 2013 date fool you, I joined in 2011 but Allan kicked me out me when I admitted I wasn't 18 (calm down mods, I am over 18 now so we cool)

But here is a rough estimate of the money I have made on the Warrior Forum over the past 5 years.
  • WSO # 1- $1200 (2012)
  • WSO # 2 - $400 (2013)
  • Signature profit - $40 (2013-2015)
  • Freelance Gigs - $18000 (2014-2018)
  • JV Partnership 1 - $25 (2016)
  • JV Partnership 2 - $1800 (2016)
  • Freelancing for big time marketer - $38000 (2016)
  • JV Partnership 3 - $20000 (2017)
  • Knowledge - Priceless (but made about $55,000 with it in my offline business using marketing tips from the offline forum) (2017-2018)

I was as broke as a bloak when I joined in 2011. In 2013 I was still broke. But in five years, I used the knowledge I learned here to generate over six figures by running my own businesses.

As you can see I made very little with WSO's and signature links. All my money came from networking and freelancing and using knowledge to grow my business

So what advice can I offer?
  • Validate a business idea before wasting your time on it. So many people I see build a website, waste a few months, and then make nothing. Starting over at ground level.
  • Sell something people actually want. NO, I DONT WANT TO BUY YOUR WSO ON AFFILIATE MARKETING, SHARON!
  • Make friends and network. So many people here have knowledge that will take you far. Be polite and learn from others
  • Don't be lazy. Lazy = broke
  • Find out what works for you. I made $0 affiliate marketing. I made over 50k providing digital services. Stick with what you know

I hope this helps somebody. I know there are lots of dudes and dudettes here right now exactly where I was five years ago.

Dont make my mistakes. Or do, I dont care. Some people just have to learn on their own

But I hope this was helpful

      Heck ya I can

      All of my JV's were found on this forum through the JV section or through messaging people who were in markets I had an interest in. I mostly entered the music space and if someone had a sig link related to entertainment I messaged them and just straight up asked to partner up. I have found that if I have something to offer, I can partner up with people smarter than me and ask them for advice, while basically working for free, at first.

      One partnership did not go so well, but the other two I had made out really well. The second JV that was successful was for a prank based business, similar to ship your enemies glitter. I found someone on the forum who reached out to me when I was trying to sell the site. Instead, we decided to partner together and he had a blog with an email list that would be interested in this product. Then, I used my connection from my time at buzzfeed to get a new article written about it. That is where the $20k came from. We got a notification from the USPS that we were breaking the law so we shut down.

      My $1800 partnership came from building a hip hop beat site with a fellow WF member and we sold it for $3600 on flippa after two weeks of working on it together.

      As for reaching out to a big name, I reached out to a well known internet marketer on the forum and just sent him a free landing page I made of his new product on Clicksure. He loved it and hired me to build at least 200 landing pages for him.

      I dont consider that last one much of a JV since I was a freelancer, but we would have weekly calls and he would give me advice on PPC offers and gathering affiliates.

    I am the opposite to you I have made six figures consistently over the past few years from affiliate marketing. Have not released my own WSO yet. No need to as yet has I have been killing it with my Ecom stores. Ecommerce is the buzz word nowadays.

    This is great. So much value you can find in this forum if you look past all the people just trying to sell you stuff, there's a lot of people just genuinely trying to help.

    This is very inspiring. It just goes to show the things you can accomplish if you put your mind to it and do the work. Just the thing you need to get your spirits back up when you feel like quitting.

      My offline business was a simple web design agency. I started it with the help of someone here on the WF. I would only go for website redesigns, as all my clients would already have hosting and a domain name, as well as all their website info.

      I would just email mockups for a website to the website owner and say "this is what my team can do for you for $$$$" and 1/8 times I made the sale

    Hey Joesph congrats on the great success with your business. 2011 seems like a long time ago. I myself joined the forum in 2011 too, and have learned alot. The most daunting task to me was getting consulting clients. Now this is an easy and normal/regular thing for me to do. Congrats on your success. Keep being a great example for all of us.

    It seems you did not have success with affiliate marketing because you are a creator and not a marketer.


    You would do well creating products and finding others to promote them for you.


    But hey...You have made over 100K over the last 5 years...So I am probably not telling you something that you don't already know.


    Great job.....Keep it up!

    Hi. I am really really new to the Warrior Forum. If you were a newbie, what 1-2 areas of Warrion would you focus on first?
