"How I make $100 a day" Have you noticed how popular this is?

by George Wright 42 replies
Hi all,

Have you noticed the WSOs and other posts that teach how to make a low amount of money each day are extremely popular?

With many IMers claiming to pull in BIG BUCKS every day it looks like there is still a hungry market for those "how to" make $50 to $100 a day info products or systems.

I remember when a guy sold a $50 a day eBay WSO a lot of Warriors went wild over it. At the time it wasn't uncommon to make hundreds even thousands a day on eBay. All you had to do was find anything and sell it. But the $50 a day WSO sold like crazy.

Then one of our members introduced the $14 WSO on another relatively low $$ per day subject and broke some WSO records for number of sales.

It's enlightening to realize that there is still a market for a "normal" living and not everyone falls head over heals for the $1k every day products.

Do the big ticket items just seem too good to be true???

I think there is a lesson in this. On our way to the big time if we can find ways to make steady daily income over a period of time there is a number of eager people who want to learn how to do it too, even if it's just a "few" dollars a day.

    Hi George,

    I think a lot of it has to do with the perception of being achievable.

    If you're currently at $5 per day, a jump to $100 isn't outside the realms of possibility, while a jump to $500 (100x current earnings) is.

    $100 per day is also a fairly decent wage in most cases, so it fits in with what people already associate themselves with... "With that sort of revenue, I could consider leaving my job"

    I know as well as you do, that it only takes one "hit" to start earning some serious money - but a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to bring that type of overnight success. Something a lot of people don't realise, and assume (after trying and failing) that it is impossible.

    So, those products which appear to hand-hold you to making a modest income are always going to be successful, because they target the dreamers as well as the realists.

    Kindest regards,
    Karl.

      Hi Karl,

      This is spot on in my opinion.

      It is all to do with whether people feel they can make $50 a day as oppose to $500 a day.

      It is ironic that these limits hold people back, although if they weren't there then ebook's like this would not sell as well.

      It all goes back to deep embedded beliefs and most people think that if someone has a lot of money they were lucky, scamming, or lying.

      Not all of the time but quite a lot of the time.

      So if you take a book and say "Learn how to make $50,000 a day" and then make one that says "Learn to make $50 a day" you are more likely to pick the second one as they must be telling the truth because $50 sounds easier.

      Also it is amazing how many people will not work really hard for money, and this is another reason they pick the second item.

      Just my 2 pence.

      Chris

      Wow! Must be cheap living in America. I guess I pay the price for living where the Sushi is so good. $100 a day would barely keep us afloat.

      However, I do believe it is a good idea to set modest goals. $100/day is a good goal. Then, when you reach it, scale up to $150/day, $200/day ......

      It's the folks who start off with stars in their eyes and the notion that they can make $1000 a day doing virtually nothing who will be disappointed. And then, they give up.

    I think it's the appeal of being able to leave your job that sells these WSOs. Lots of people won't make the leap from part time to full time IMing because of the fear that they'll be left with neither roof nor food. But if they can get something going that earns them $100 a day at least, it creates a sense of security. You know - "At least I won't starve while I'm trying to ramp things up."

    It's all about reaching people where they're at. Everyone has their own 'income radar' that can see and believe only what they set their radar to see. $500 or $1,000 or $5,000 a day goes way beyond the scope of believability for most people so their 'radar' doesn't pick it up, and no action is taken.

    3k/mo=100/day thats the way I think...
    And I believe if you want to become rich (everyone does), you might want to set some realistic goals like $1/day $10/day up to $1k/day or more.
    Then when you see a goal accomplished, you have some inspiration to move on.

    There are a lot of freaky factors involved here, but one is that many people are more interested in earning a PART TIME income...or EXTRA money than they are with the idea of working for themselves.

    I have TONS of happy bums that hold down a day job, but make $800, 2k to 3k extra a month...and are ECSTATIC to have it.

      Right on, Travis. Lots of people are looking to earn a little fun money rather than build an empire. It also has to do with a scarcity vs abundance mindset and what people's self defined reality is.

        Not sure whether to laugh or roll my eyes at that in the context of this thread... you really expect the average person who has not run a business to think they are going to make huge amounts of money easily just by buying someone's plan? Why should they think that?

        If I don't think I can fly like a bird, is that a mindset issue, or just the truth? Maybe I need to paste photos of birds all around my PC and visualize flying.

              I'd say it's quite easy to see what I meant. Some people are just fine making $100/day and no more. That's all they're out to do. And yet there are still others who don't believe more than $100/day is possible for them.


              Looks like your assumptions were a little off.

              And trying to equate something that's possible for all (more than $100/day) with something physically impossible (human flight) in order to try and debunk the importance of mindset is comically absurd.

    Definitely. 100 a day is what many people make in their day jobs...in fact, it's almost exactly what I made in mine when I was a teacher.

    Knowing that you can achieve that from home is amazing and really gives people that itch to succeed.

    Seeing a figure like $10,000 or $20,000 a month just doesn't seem as realistic to those who are used to working all day every day for 3K.

    I definitely see why $100 a day is so popular

    @Karl, I think you're absolutely right. I know that personally I'm much more keen to pick up $100/day posts than $1k/day posts because of the level I'm currently at.

  • Years ago I had a system that was earning me $6,000 a day. It was ridiculously easy, you had to do virtually nothing to earn that money. I also had another system that would earn me $50-$60 a day, but it was more work than the first.

    I packaged both up and sold them as IM systems, and the sales of
    the $50 a day offer CRUSHED the sales of the $6,000 a day package. I have no doubt that the too-good-to-be-true doubts hindered the sales of the first package.

      Gene and Karl are both absolutely right.

      I noticed this a while back when that post was going crazy. It seems like people are at that stage. I seriously wonder sometimes what percentage of newbies are on the main forum versus experts. I consistently see Steven Wagenheim on here and he's kicking ass all the time with great posts.

      I feel like there's a serious barrier from the 100 to 500$ a day mark. I mean if you're consistently making 500 a day, you know what you're doing and the work it takes to double that isn't as much as it takes to go from 100 to 500. It's all in the leverage after 500$.

      However, many people who make 100 a day are freelancing or doing it without much of a list. I find it hard to believe people have the time or effort to make 500 a day or 1000 a day consistently with freelancing.

      So...once someone has their trust in IM (100 a day will do that) they can build a system to make more money. The system is where it's at. To consistently make a lot (or a little) a system is required.

      To summarize, getting people past this mental barrier is key to their long term success...and there are a ton of people who are "under" that barrier...hence the popularity of these posts.


      Cheers,

        Let's take a look at the "average" person/family in America today. Now I know you can dig down and pick apart what is or isn't average anymore in America but just for general purposes here we go.

        Dad and or Mom gets up in the morning, gets the kid(s) on the bus, and drives to work. Does not carpool, and is driving a car/truck and probably spends $25.00 more on gas per week than they did 1 year ago. ($100.00 more per month).

        Goes to the grocery store and spends $30.00 more per week than they did a year ago. ( $120.00 more per month).
        Lunch money for 1 child is probably $3.00 more per week than it was 1 year ago. ( $12.00 per month). And add on all the other price increases that we have had over the last 1-3 years and it adds up.

        Mom or Dad might have gotten a raise in the past year of maybe 3%, but after taxes and increases in health insurance premiums, probably does not net much more than they did before they got the raise.

        So Mom or Dad wants to find a way to make extra money without having to drive to another job, and needs to be home for the kids in the evening.
        So they get on the internet and start looking for a way to make extra money from HOME. They don't need much more than say $25.00-$50.00 a day / week to get back to their normal financial comfort zone that they were in just a few years ago.

        The average person will not be able to comprehend what it would be to make $1,000 per day, nor would they believe it would be possible. So they would skip over the $1,000 per day offer and look for those offers that they can comprehend, which would be in the $50.00 dollar per day range.

            What the individual does with it is the difference. Those that only want to make extra income will take this program and be very happy about it. It is exactly what they are looking for an want.

            Those that want a lot more still need the same thing. They need to see that it is possible to make money online first. If that never happens then they won't be likely to take the next step from $100 up to $500 and beyond.

            I think it appeals to every single person who comes online to make money. What the individual does with it is what separates those that only make $100 and those that go way past that.

            For the record, I think this WSO that you are mentioning is one of the best ones out there. I might be a little biased.

            Adam
            Hehe Adam, don't be modest, you can stand up and say "It's mine!" and feel damn proud of it.

            Heck, your WSO almost doubles mine in views and mine is 5th on top viewed threads.

            Now back to topic, when I created my WSO, I had no idea it would have such a great impact.

            I just simply created a product that stated exactly how I made a decent amount of income out of a method which has been used already.

            In fact, if you are one of the thousands of warriors that has read my report, you will see there is absolutely almost nothing new about it, all the methods have been out there for ages. But the simplicity of it and the achievable income are one of the things that makes it a good selling product. Well, in addition to the fact that it works also!

            I believe Adam's WSO to be a very similar case but with a much wider offer, I mean he's doing a 90 day video course for godsake, he deserves that success for overdelivering on an achievable income to anyone.

            Now, don't think that the fact that it's an easily achievable income is the only thing that makes these WSOs popular and succesful. I have seen hundreds of similar WSOs that offer something almost exact to ours, which haven't sold 1% of what ours have sold.

            There are many factors that have influenced these types of offers, the sales pitch of an extra relatively low achievable income is not even half of it.

            I'll give you a hint, the fact that both Adam and I are complete newbies to the industry and we have both achieved a decent income online (prior to the WSOs) in such a small timespan is another reason, now you have half of it.

    Yeah there are lots of people who would be happy just making a few dollars a day instead of big bucks everyday. I think a lot of people may see "make big bucks a day" titles as hype or maybe they are afraid it's a scam or requires advanced skills they don't have. As for normal living rates, $10 a day would help out a lot of people, it does add up.

    It is really pretty simple. For those who are not real experts at making money on the internet, it is very complicated and very time consuming to find a way to make even $100/day. There are so many things to figure out.

    In another life years ago my wife was netting well into the six figures offline, for years, but trying to do that online, working twice as hard has been unpleasant to say the least. Different occupations take different types of intelligence and many times that is not transferable to the internet or it takes a long time to figure it out. The internet takes a certain type of intelligence or several types.

    Truth is most people are dying for someone to give them a real blueprint the average person can really follow so they can work from home and get away from the job they really don't like.

    I would think there are actually a lot of people who have no desire to leave their main career and its many benefits, but who nevertheless would like to be making more money and would prefer creating a little business on the side than getting a second wage-earning job.

    For someone already earning a full-time income, another $50-$100 a day would really improve lifestyle remarkably so I can see how that range would be particularly appealling... especially since many of the WSOs for this sort of thing suggest that it can be done with a minimal amount of effort -- which is ideal for anyone who already works a full day.

    I think 'believability' is the main driving force behind these 'xx' a day WSOs. Since a majority of people have yet to make even $100/day in their internet business, they may find the goal of making more than that out of reach or just too much work to begin with.

    Although I am above the $100/day mark, I will still pick up any 'xx' a day WSO simply because I'm looking for ideas that are easy to scale. Heck, if you show me a system to make $5/day I'll pick it up and possibly duplicate it so that it's make triple figures a day. Using leverage, automation and duplication, you can turn a good $5/day system into huge daily profits.

      For me it's simply a matter of believability. I don't really believe someone would sell me a guide on making $20,000 in a month for $7.00. This industry is filled with people who stretch the truth. $100 a day is much more believable.

    $100 a day is fantastic for anyone that does not have to buy gas, pay auto insurance, vehicle loan, maintenance, or any of the other expenses involved in traveling to a job. Additionally it is a realistic attainable income figure that in many cases can also be Tax Free.

    Funny-- I'm thinking about one of those $100/day wso's right now and can't decide!

    I think of that number as $3000/month when I see it and it does make you think about how that can be put to work in my current budget. And as those have noted above, it seems to be a believable number too.

    When I first wrote a post that fits your description, I never imagined that it would literally take off like a rocket. I wrote it to inspire newbies because there was a flood of negative posts preceding it and I did not like the trend. The secret must be in the fact that it is doable and the methods are simple. All you have to do is apply yourself.

    I bought one of this WSO's before and the one major buying factor for me was: if $100/day can be done by this method then I can probably duplicate it indefinitely to make $500, $1000, or so per day.

    This would appeal to practical newbies better than a high-ticket dream "internet lifestyle" push button business.

    I think people like to hear a low amount per DAY, rather than something like $36,000 per year. $100 bucks is a believable amount and the first thing the mind does is multply it by 30 for a monthly income. then they start thinking that amount would pay a mortgage and a couple of car payments, and still have some beer money too. And that gets them excited. The small amount is easily comprehended, then the brain can take it from there. Kind of a Kaizen thing in a way.

    $100 a day is VERY decent living in some parts of the US, ESPECIALLY some parts of the south where the cost of living is only just beginning to rise. Even $50 a day is decent income for some. So being able to leave that crappy $7.25 an hour job sounds WONDERFUL to many people living in these areas.

    so which of these "make $100/day" wso that u guys have tried n recommend?

    btw where i come from (malaysia), making US$100/day or US$3K/month if enough to make a full-time living just from that income ie make that amount n u won't have to hold a full-time job. only abt 5% of the workers here make that amount. heck, with that amount n a long term stay visa (google "mm2h gov"), even foreigners from other countries can make a full-time living from the internet. make US$200/day or US$6K/month your in the top 1% earners n can enjoy the internet lifestyle mentioned by scammy/crappy ebooks ie sipping drinks at beach n drool at hot babes. heee heee!

    Hi George,

    This has always been a market. I used to sell info to this market myself a few years ago because although I was making much more, many people don't believe they can make big numbers and have really low goals which you can easily help them with by showing them how to make small amounts on a regular basis.

    $100/Day...

    1. Create valuable PDF report for $19.95 complete with various, related affiliate links embedded in it.

    2. Offer report on a small and powerful, one page sales letter website.

    3. On "thank you" page, create a box that says..."What other purchasers of this report recommend" and put an affiliate product for upsell.

    4. Spend the rest of your time writing quality articles and post them to top-end article directories with a signature that points to report for sale website. Better yet, put an opt-in on there to get their email address to promote not only report, but related products with good content.

    Rinse and repeat for reports on all types of subjects.

    5 reports a day sold, $100/Day plus you will get some backend sales from affiliate links.

    Not rocket science...but the question is...will you do it and stick with it?

    The truth is making less a day is more acheivable with less complications.

    Making thousands a day is much more complicated and far less acheivable

    If you set the bar at a reasonable level, people will believe it is possible. If they believe it is possible, it seems more credible. If it is more credible, it is likely to sell better than something that seems impossible to do.
