My First $200++Day - And The Funny Way It Happened

49 replies
Hello everyone,

I recently wrote an article on the forum talking about the steps that I take when finding profitable keywords.

Someone sent me a message and ask how I made money with this method so I thought I would share my own personal success story.

After struggling for over a year trying to figure out this IM stuff for the first time in October 2009 I made over 200$+ a day for about 5 days straight.

Before this success I made some money but I was spending more money then I was making.

For months I would just spend money on products or some kind of software that promised to make my life easier and do all the work for me if I would just push the magic button. Anyway I was about ready to give up on IM when I got this strange little email that was so ridiculous it was funny.

I will never forget it was mid August and this person was saying how much money they made the year before selling Halloween costumes. The more I read the funnier it got but for some reason I decided to do some more checking on the topic, because I know my kids love Halloween so much and they always bug me about the latest and greatest costumes. So I begin thinking of a few ideas and started thinking maybe just maybe selling Halloween costumes would work.

I begin searching for affiliate programs and building Squidoo sites and I waited and nothing, no sales, no hits nothing at all.

So I decided to start over and build blogs instead of Web2.0 sites. I knew I had to get my keywords right and try to rank for words I could get on page one. After days of trying different things I finally came up with the 6 step for keyword research that I talked about in another post I wrote.

So I made a plan to build 30 blogs. I did all my keyword research and purchased about 15 domains .com .org .net domain names and I started to build my blogs.

After about building 15 sites using simple backling no tricks or anything just some hard work, not one of my sites showed up in the rankings or very little traffic was coming to those sites.

I was about to give up when I went back to the drawing board and perfected the way I was doing my keyword research. So I begin to build the other 15 sites, it took me a while to complete them but I finally got them all up with unique content, cloaked affiliate links, adsense, backlinks, headers etc..

It was about the end of August early September when I completed all of my sites and to be honest with you I didn't think much about it I just assumed nothing would happen until one day I decided to checked my CJ account. I will never forget the first time I saw the amount in my account it was over $400 and I just assumed it was a mistake until I started digging deeper into my account and realized that all the sales came from the last 15 Halloween blogs that I had created.

The closer it got to Halloween the more money I was making, it was almost like buying stocks waking up each day to see how much money I had made for that day. Around the second week in October I begin to make over $200 a day and I did that for about 5 days straight.

I was so happy I thought I finally did it my first $200 day. To this day I still am making money from those 15 sites of course it's not $200 a day but for sites I don't even touch anymore it still is amazing.

What I have learned is that this method of building little niche sites if you have the right buyer keywords will work for "Christmas Bulbs" "Valentines Day E-Cards" CPA offer and all the major Holidays that people just go crazy over. You just have to find products that people are searching for and wanting to buy.

So thank goodness for that funny little email that I thought was so hilarious and full of crap. Now I can build a blog and have it up and running and indexed in no time.

And the blogs that I build are so simple and plain, but that doesn't matter when you find rabbit buyers. I use to take hours tweaking my blogs with fancy themes, plugins, header etc etc. Now I just build them as plain add a few plugins do some tweaking and I'm done. Later I might go back once the site proves to me it will make money and fix it up a little.

The point is guys no matter what method you fallow or what you do just get some content on the web, build your own blogs or even Web2.0 sites if your money is tight.

But take action and find something that works and is profitable for you and scale it up big time.

Thank you for your time and for reading my story.

Thanks Warrior Forum I have learned so much from so many people on here and putting me on the right track.

    Mr. Allen, what blog platform (WordPress, Blogger, Blog.com, etc...) do you use when you are creating your websites, if you don't mind me asking? Also, what *Web 2.0* sites do you use (HubPages, Squidoo, etc.)?

    Last but not least...can you give us a *list* of the WordPress plugins that you use on all of your blogs?

    BTW, I love how *informative* your blueprint is!

    Good job. You did well not to give up when the going got tough. I have a couple seasonal sites too. Over the year they aren't super profitable but for those weeks around the event they really are worth having.

    I have a similar story.

    I build a website targeting 1 keyword that got fairly high amount of traffic. After a few weeks i actually got the #2 spot in google. I was so happy and now i was just waiting to see the cash flow! (i was quite new to IM at the time)

    i got about 70-150 visitors a day, but only like 1 sale every 2 month...i was quite disappointed and decided to move on to next site

    Then i just left that website for 1 year, did not do ANYTHING to it and pretty much forgot about it.

    Then i returned last week and found out it actually still ranked high in google. I decided to edit the landing page to see if would help the conversions.

    I am a terrible writer, so i decided to look at one of the affiliate areas of the products. One of them supplies a landing page you could freely use. Then i copy/pasted that page into my blog to see if it would help.

    over the next 7 days i have done 5 sales............i was stunned. A simple change to an old site converted it from a 1 sale every 60 days to a 5 sales a week site.

    Now i am just sad i missed a year of sales because i was lazy and did not optimize my page. I have learned my lesson.

      Hey NW, what changes to your site/pages did you make to increase conversions in the way that you did (if you don't mind me asking)?

              Great story...I'm impressed with your success, and I am very happy for you.
              I also noticed that you are selling a product or merchandise instead of the dreaded (imho) clickbank fare.

              I found that marketing real products far and away beats the over done, over marketed, clickbank stuff.

              Agree or disagree?

                Hey Mak25,

                I was very surprised how well merchandise sells and yes lots of products you can promote and build content around. But I do think if your new at IM then clickbank products are a good way to get your feet wet. You can see whats selling and you can develop some kind of marketing strategy around that product, article marketing, squidoo, blogs etc.

                Even if you don't sell anything its good practice for you. What I have learned doing this is to never give up, and just keep building content using a simple strategy something that does not bore you too much. It might take 15 or 20 tries before you see some results but when you do see results just start to scale it up.

                So many people give up way to early and then they start to move on to something else and just keep repeating the process and then they finally give up and think that its some kind of magic to this IM stuff.

                Thanks for you comments,
                Frankie

      I hated when Halloween was over I wanted it to last forever but then I realized that if it worked for Halloween it would work for Christmas, Valentines day etc. etc.. And if it worked for Holidays why not other products So you see it never ends.

    Pveo,

    I am glad I can help you. Once you select your keywords the correct way the battle is half won. Just go out and find you a method/system that works best for you and build content around your keywords. It might take you a few times to get it right but just keep doing it.

    Sometimes it does take a simple story such as mine to get people motivated and moving. So I hope my story will motivate your list in some small way to get moving. Even if it only helps one person it would have been worth it.

    Thanks Kayelex,

    Your right so many people give up way to soon if they had just stuck it out for a little while longer. My biggest problem was trying to do too many things and once and all the gurus telling me do this, do that when all the time I had the power to do it without buying another product.

        Hello Frankie,

        I recently joined the forum to try and find a way to make this IM thing a reality. Doing a LOT of reading and my head is still spinning. Information overload for sure!

        I have a few questions about this post if you don't mind me asking.

        You built 30 blog sites and sold holiday products through them. But I'm curious how you structured the sites themselves and their content. Take the Halloween site for example. Did you add posts about the holiday and then have affiliate links to Halloween products? Or did you set up your own storefront? Also, how do you differentiate one site from another without having overlapping content (or do they overlap)? Are all your sites selling products or do you use ads and affiliate links to mix things up?

        Lastly, how do you physically manage THIRTY separate sites. Obviously the more sites, the better. And the chances are good that more will be profitable, but how can you keep track of everything? Sales, traffic, etc.

        Forget about $200 a day, I just need to figure out how to make ONE dollar!:confused:

        Thanks!

          Hi Intrigue,

          I laughed when you said all you want to do is figure out how to make $1 because I truly understand. In fact I hesitated to give out the dollar amount when I wrote this post because I didn't want to turn anyone off by trying to glamorize my success.

          Anyway to answer your questions, I build Word Press Sites. These sites consisted of 4 pages. The Home page, About page, Contact page and the Policies and Procedures page.

          I used WP because the search engines seem to love this content management site . Remember this works with anything not just Halloween products so don't get stuck on just one Holliday or theme.

          Back to your question on the Halloween sites, you ask me about the content on the sites. What I did was pick "ONE" let me say that again "ONE" item or category to concentrate on and I created my blog and content around that "ONE" thing and you have to be specific.

          For example "Clown Costumes for Boys" is specific but "Clown Costumes" is a more general term. When people came to my site they already knew what they wanted to buy.

          When I wrote content I would just write about clown costumes for boys or maybe the history of clown costumes. I would then add photos from my affiliate program and link those back to the affiliate site. I also added adsense on my site for extra income.

          Once I set up my site I would add a few backlinks and trust me I only added a few and in some cases I didn't even add any because of the way I would structure my blog, I would just forget about it and let it do its on thing.

          Later about a week or so I would go back and check to see if the site got indexed and what page the site was on. Then I would decide if I wanted to add more articles, backlinks, headers, etc etc.

          Your last question was how I managed so many sites at one, I used two things and they both are free. The first one is Roboform.com it will manage all your sites and passwords. They do have other options that you can pay for but the free service will work for you just fine.

          The other thing that I used and it's free also is Rank Checker by seobook.com. All you have to do is put it your sites url and it will track your sites position in Google, Yahoo and Bing. Go check at that site for details they also have videos so you can watch and learn.

          I highly recommend you learn WP for a number of reasons but the number one reason would be because you own the domain and the site. I know right now I could sell my Halloween sites and make a profit but I think I will hold on to them for a while.

          Also this forum is very good but don't spend too much time here reading, find a system you interested in and you think you can do then learn it as best you can and make a plan to work on it everyday.

          Hope that help you some,

          Frankie

        Frankie,

        Excellent info, thank you! I will have to check out those URL's for sure and I'm saving the thread info for reference. You're quite right - I don't want to get bogged down doing all this reading. I've spent too much time on that and need to get rolling!

        Here's where I'm at and maybe you have some advice: I have already set up a single Wordpress based blog - related to Graphic Design, Photography and Printing. This blog was my own little experiment for the company where I work (see link in my sig). I set it up three years ago, but started adding posts more regularly last year. I'm getting the hang of the ins and outs of the WP Dashboard.

        Because I have too much "regular" work to do (the blog is considered very low priority by my company), I don't have much time to put into monetizing the blog. I also haven't tried to get traffic to it, but it DOES turn up on Google searches. My traffic is non-existent, at about 1-5 views a day according to site stats and I have zero links coming in. I know, I know, I gotta get my act together.

        I don't think it makes any sense to drop Adsense ads on it since nobody is seeing it yet. I'm thinking some Amazon Affiliate links might be good - stuff that is related to Graphic Design, Photography, printing, etc.

        What should I focus on to start getting this blog noticed? I think there is enough content with nearly 30 posts for people to check it out and stay for a bit.

          Your welcome,

          What you should do is do keyword research to find out what people are talking about in your niche. Once you find a few keywords that would be easy to rank for in the search engines, build content around those words.

          Once you have the content posted on your site, ping those pages and start building backlinks to that page. Also link back to the home page within the blog posts.

          You might want to also link out to authority sites within your blog post. I normally link out to 5 or so other sites that are similar to the post.

          You should also add a Google sitemap to your blog if you dont have one already installed this will help you out with SEO.

          Hope that helps you,
          Frankie

    Very inspiring testimony. I have a program that teaches this method of building numerous blogs and interlinking them. I started doing them but got bored with it and managed to convince myself that nothing good would come out of it. You have now inspired me that something good can come out of it.

    Thanks and congratulations.

    I recently wrote an article on the forum talking about the steps that I take when finding profitable keywords.

    Someone sent me a message and ask how I made money with this method so I thought I would share my own personal success story.

    After struggling for over a year trying to figure out this IM stuff for the first time in October 2009 I made over 200$+ a day for about 5 days straight.

    Before this success I made some money but I was spending more money then I was making.

    For months I would just spend money on products or some kind of software that promised to make my life easier and do all the work for me if I would just push the magic button. Anyway I was about ready to give up on IM when I got this strange little email that was so ridiculous it was funny.

    I will never forget it was mid August and this person was saying how much money they made the year before selling Halloween costumes. The more I read the funnier it got but for some reason I decided to do some more checking on the topic, because I know my kids love Halloween so much and they always bug me about the latest and greatest costumes. So I begin thinking of a few ideas and started thinking maybe just maybe selling Halloween costumes would work.

    I begin searching for affiliate programs and building Squidoo sites and I waited and nothing, no sales, no hits nothing at all.

    So I decided to start over and build blogs instead of Web2.0 sites. I knew I had to get my keywords right and try to rank for words I could get on page one. After days of trying different things I finally came up with the 6 step for keyword research that I talked about in another post I wrote.

    So I made a plan to build 30 blogs. I did all my keyword research and purchased about 15 domains .com .org .net domain names and I started to build my blogs.

    After about building 15 sites using simple backling no tricks or anything just some hard work, not one of my sites showed up in the rankings or very little traffic was coming to those sites.

    I was about to give up when I went back to the drawing board and perfected the way I was doing my keyword research. So I begin to build the other 15 sites, it took me a while to complete them but I finally got them all up with unique content, cloaked affiliate links, adsense, backlinks, headers etc..

    It was about the end of August early September when I completed all of my sites and to be honest with you I didn't think much about it I just assumed nothing would happen until one day I decided to checked my CJ account. I will never forget the first time I saw the amount in my account it was over $400 and I just assumed it was a mistake until I started digging deeper into my account and realized that all the sales came from the last 15 Halloween blogs that I had created.

    The closer it got to Halloween the more money I was making, it was almost like buying stocks waking up each day to see how much money I had made for that day. Around the second week in October I begin to make over $200 a day and I did that for about 5 days straight.

    I was so happy I thought I finally did it my first $200 day. To this day I still am making money from those 15 sites of course it's not $200 a day but for sites I don't even touch anymore it still is amazing.

    What I have learned is that this method of building little niche sites if you have the right buyer keywords will work for "Christmas Bulbs" "Valentines Day E-Cards" CPA offer and all the major Holidays that people just go crazy over. You just have to find products that people are searching for and wanting to buy.

    So thank goodness for that funny little email that I thought was so hilarious and full of crap. Now I can build a blog and have it up and running and indexed in no time.

    And the blogs that I build are so simple and plain, but that doesn't matter when you find rabbit buyers. I use to take hours tweaking my blogs with fancy themes, plugins, header etc etc. Now I just build them as plain add a few plugins do some tweaking and I'm done. Later I might go back once the site proves to me it will make money and fix it up a little.

    The point is guys no matter what method you fallow or what you do just get some content on the web, build your own blogs or even Web2.0 sites if your money is tight.

    But take action and find something that works and is profitable for you and scale it up big time.

    Thank you for your time and for reading my story.

    Thanks Warrior Forum I have learned so much from so many people on here and putting me on the right track.

    Hey Frankie,
    how's it going bud. Just wanted to say Congrats on your first $200 day. I wanted to give you a tip as well. Take everything you did, break it up into very understandble steps for any newbie and just make a WSO ebook or even better a video series with youtube or camstasia and turn it into a WSO to keep the incoming coming in. If you need help with this just let me know! cheers keep going bud...

    Hey Frankie,

    Great story, and thanks for the sahre kid!

    The funny thing is that's how it works. We can read everything out there and to connect the dots, but that won't happen until you get a little grungy if you know what I mean.

    You tried things out, and tested them to see what is working for you, and that is always the best way because it sinks in.

    Anyway, thanks again, and the best of luck to you in the future.

        Very nice and congratulations! Now, you have something that works, you've proven that to yourself, apply the same methods and create some more of those blogs focused on each holiday of the year, it's likely that you'll be able to make that happen if you can find a way to apply your method around each holiday of the year as you did with Halloween, once again congrats and apply that knowledge further to grow your income even higher!

    I had a similar experience with Clickbank before, on a site I barely knew how to drive traffic to... I saw my stats and couldn't for the life of me figured out where the figures came from... then I thought, "Oh YEAH... that thing..."

    Gotta love those fluke commissions They let you know that, hey, whatever you're doing, you're apparently doing something right, so capitalize it!

    Congratulations
