From $0 To $100/Day.....How Long Would It Take?

35 replies
How long do you guys think it would take to go from $0 to $100/day doing affiliate marketing and using free methods? I hate my job with a passion, and can't wait to get out of there. A $100/day would be enough to allow me to do that. So how long do you think it would take assuming that I was....

Writing 5 articles a day.
Submitting those to rss feeds.
Hiring people to get me backlinks(how much would this cost?)
Also, is there anything else that I could do on a daily basis that would speed up the process? Any other techniques that you guys would use?

    With enough Determination, you can make that change in a single day, it's all about how bad you need it. If someone told you that you had a single day to make $100 using Affiliate Marketing or else it would cost you your life, I guarantee you would do it. How bad do you want it?

      For some reason, this post made me think of a section in the "Toilet Paper Entrepreneur" (a Book), where he speaks of basically waving a $100 Bill out in front of people.... (probably because you used the $100 figure in your post title)...

      Anyone familiar with this book/story? Highly recommended...

      good point.

      At the end of the day, it all comes down to raw ambition....How much you have almost always determines your lot in life.

    Try not to be too impatient. Set a goal for about 6 months to a year from now. Being over-eager might just cause you to get frustrated and hate your job even more (it happened to me) That said, I would shoot for 20 or more articles a day on your days off and 5 on the days that you are working.

    And one final note, I did not start making any consistent money online until I started building a list.

    Would you guys suggest that I write those 5 articles a day in one niche or spread it out over 5 different niches?

      First, Rob is right... build a list. Even if you don't have anything to sell to them just yet, don't waste the visitors you get from article marketing. Capture them and start building a relationship by sending good solid info in every email. You can work in the offers to make money later. Don't wait on that part!

      If you can consistently write 5 articles per day, you're way ahead of most who do article marketing. The key is being able to do that consistently, which is not very common. People tend to make big plans, then burn out fast.

      Re: niches, I prefer digging deep vs. going wide, but there are arguments for both approaches that make good sense. If you're working a job, picking one solid niche and really going for it might work best. If you had lots of time, then a wider approach would be feasible too.

      I think focusing on one niche has better results, especially if you're new at this.

      My advice is to stick with one niche and go wide as opposed to deep. You'll find once you get into a niche that the opportunities with what you can do with it are endless. You need to become and expert in your niche. You can't do that by spreading yourself thin....especially since you won't be doing this full time in the beginning.

      Hope that helps.

        I guess it would make more sense if I put things in the right order. I meant go deep as opposed to wide. By digging deep into a niche instead of sprinkling yourself throughout many, you will become an expert in that niche. You will also make all of your newbie mistakes in one niche, so if you need to drop it and start all over, at least you have some knowledge and experience to go with on the next try.

        Once you have your main niche to where you are making money while putting in minimal hours of work, you can move on to the next one. Or you can keep working the original niche full time, while having other people run your ad-on niches for you.

        I hope I didn't screw you up to much by switching the two most important words in my first post. :p

    Also... don't make the same mistake I did for the past two years.. Don't jump from one technique to another one until you succeeded at your current project. You already know article marketing works, it's just a matter of tweaking it until you find success.

      i think you are absolutely correct. I think learning the very basic fundamentals in internet marketing is the best way to reach 100/day.

      As for the article marketing.. I haven't tried it yet. But I will look for this exact thread when I start my article marketing and let you guys in on how im doing..

    go to this thread for me and watch the video.

    http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...s-scratch.html

    Jas parker is the real deal. This is actaully how I got started online. It is almost precisely how I started making some good money online and quit my job a few months after.

    Like i said go watch the vid a few times, jot down some notes. If I was a newbie and wanted to start earning $100 a day. This is where I would start. Seriously good stuff. Do this properly and have a proper funnel set up, you could be making 3k a month.....but it is all up to you TAKING ACTION!

    The first 3 rules to anyone who wants to make $100 a day online.....SIMPLE

    TAKE BLOODY ACTION!
    TAKE BLOODY ACTION!
    TAKE BLOODY ACTION!


    LOL .....I guess you get my drift.

    Im still not even catching up on a single dime per day. Im a newbie in internet marketing, no list, no contacts. But I believe I'd be making a hundred dollars/day in 6 months. Set a goal but never forget your plans.

    The answer to this is not really that definitive because there are so many variables ... fact is you need some seed money and some knowledge.

    I suggest you spend a month or two lingering around this forum and learning. Invest in some PROPER training and get equipped.

    By PROPER I mean a real business model not just another crappy Get-Rich-Quick scam.

    Personally my business model is working in niche marketing and I have lots of websites.
    These are monetised using affiliate links and also adsense (I like to have a mix).

    focus on one thing, get it working, then perfect it, and outsource it if you can, then move to the next thing. Problem is, most people focus on getting 100 things perfect at once and never move to action. One, small step forward... and never look back.

    It takes longer than what you might think...or hope. You need to set up a daily plan and stick to it. If that means writing 5 articles at midnight, then so be it. You need to stay focused, determined, and most importantly, consistent. Writing 5 articles one day and skipping 3 or 4 days will get you nowhere.

    You COULD make $100 your first day, but that's setting the bar too high, and maybe setting yourself up for disappointment. Make it a 3-5 month goal to get to 100 dollar days, it's very possible

    Find a simple formula that works and follow it without worrying about anything else.

    It's really that simple.

    I would suggest looking at a great WSO and getting good guidance.

    Check out WSOs like this one:

    Depends on what you do. Sure you can make 100$ in one day, but really people? You can also win the lottery. I don't want to be a downer, but it's the truth.

    You can make 100$ a day I think if you work hard and diligently in a little under a month or more. But you have to put in full time hours.

    The reason I say under a month, is because you should be building websites and lists, trying to set yourself up for bigger things. 100$ a day isn't that hard, I don't think, as long as you're equipped and ready for the long run.

    It took me a little longer because I'm just now getting the tools I need in order to succeed, but it's very possible!

      You obviously don't want to "get your hopes up" too much...but it really can happen fast with just a few articles. It's happened to me in a few different niches/keywords.

      Of course, the more you write, the better the odds of a few articles hitting it big!

      I GUARANTEE you that you will know how to make $100 per day if you write 200 articles in some different niches.

      You will have learned so much about the niches that, you'll know what sells, or if it is a dead end. Those ideas that sell, you will have scaled with more writing and you will make a more money with less effort.

    $100 a day is very achievable with consistency and determination. Be sure to choose your battle wisely though -- pick a niche that's profitable but not to competitive -- unless you have an abundance. Also, pick buying keywords... don't waste marketing dollars on useless keywords.

    Be sure to take your time and set-up your site properly (set-up a blog) with good content and a professional design. Then educate yourself and market your site everyday. Try article marketing, video marketing, blog commenting, and forum marketing. Don't submit to hundreds of sites at once (like everyone else); try building your links naturally over time. Remember the tortoise and the hair -- 20 to 30 quality links a day for 30 days will get your site rolling.

    Spend 3 to 4 hours a day promoting your site and posting quality content, you may hit your goal in 30 to 60 days. You must allow some time for your marketing efforts to kick-in since you're using free methods. Don't be Alarmed... It won't happen over night.

    Overnight success usually takes around 5 - 10 years. Good Luck!

      You really can't set a timeline. You just have to get started and get moving.

      There are so many people out there who say they want to make money online but don't put in the time. So focus on a method and work at it consistently.

    I think it can happen in 6 months to a year if you are consistent and if you do your keyword research properly. However, you need to set up a system to create back links for those articles so that you stay high in the SERP's.

    There are so many variables at work here that it'd be difficult to give you a definitive timeframe. I wouldn't want to get your hopes up by promising you'll get to the $100/day mark in a few weeks, because this would mean expectations are set and chances are that if you don't hit that mark (or even end up not making a single cent) by then, you're probably going to give up.

    Without knowing what niche you're entering or how persuasive your writing style is, there's no way anyone could give you an accurate prediction. I'd give it at least 3 solid months of writing 5 articles per day consistently to see whether you're making any headway. If you see some results by then (it doesn't necessarily have to mean reaching your income target), try to tweak and refine your strategy to improve your results, and perhaps scale it up further by outsourcing some of the article writing with your earnings.

    $100/day is not hard at all, I honestly think that anyone can achieve that mark without putting in hundreds of hours of work and preparation.

    Find a WSO or other IM product that has evidence of actual results from more people than just the product creator. There are countless IM products out there that will help you get to $100+/day quickly and easily if you put in the work required

    I think sometimes people here make IM seem a lot harder than it really is (to eliminate competition?!)

    I wish you all the best with your $100/day endeavor

    Having a clear plan and sticking to it is the key. Easy to type, not always easy to follow.

    A BIG realization for me was that chasing the dollars is tiring and makes you a slave to the money just like a 9-5 job....ewww.

    Build a business around a problem that people are ACHING to solve (and will pay good money to solve). Build a list in that niche, create products related to the niche, promote other related products....do you see where this is going?

    Build it out, build it out, build it out......

    The idea is that your $100 per day can (and should) be coming from all different angles.

    How long it takes to get to that point totally depends on you but it can go very quickly if you're focused. Get focused :-)
