My First $100 Day - Exactly How I Did It and How You Can Too

A little while ago I had my first $100 day, what an awesome feeling! I thought I would share how I did it so that anyone struggling can try it out as well.

By the way it only took about a week from when I started this method until I had the $100 day. This is easy stuff anyone can do this.

The first thing I did was find a really good product on RAP bank, I chose them because they do instant commissions and most of their products offer 100% commissions on the front end, which is awesome.

I found a product that really caught my eye and when I read the sales page I really wanted to buy it, I figured if I wanted it, other people would as well.

The particular product I chose happened to be a Jason Fladlien product, he's awesome.

So I read through that ebook and it really was great, so I knew I could promote it with confidence. Next I took the basic concepts from that ebook and wrote my own ten page ebook.

I did not copy anything, all I did was take what I had learned and wrote a more simplified version of what he taught in the book.

Then I created a squeeze page listing all of the benefits of my free report and collected emails on the squeeze page. Here is the process people went through when they put in their email address:

1. Page telling them to check their email and confirm. They can't get the free gift until they confirm their email, this helps with people that just want the free gift and will never actually confirm their email address. On this same confirmation page I had a little bit about the product I was promoting and why it's awesome.

2. Next they confirm their email and get sent to a download page which has a link to the free report I created and another little bit about my affiliate product.

3. They get the first email which introduces them to my email list and what they can be expecting, I'll get more into the autoresponder messages in a second.

4. The report I made is actually useful and also has a few affiliate links sprinkled in it as well as a long paragraph recommendation at the end.

So that is what happens at the beginning, now I'll talk about what I actually put in my autoresponder series.

I hate the giant email lists where every single email is an affiliate link. I figured most people felt the same way so I wanted to make my list different.

I flat out told people that yes I would be promoting to them, but everything I ever promote would be something that I have used and loved myself (which is true). I would also be giving them real value in the emails I send out, which I also do.

I filled in the first 6 emails which came out to a little less than 2 weeks. The first 5 emails were nothing but useful content, it was either something I had learned that helped me, or a link to a useful article or video or something, never anything that cost money.

The 6th email was a recommendation to a product that I had bought recently that was a great deal and really had incredible value to it, I loved the product and so I told my list about it. I was an affiliate for it and made that clear to my list.

Now I have everything set up and am ready to send some traffic to it. The first thing I did was put a link to my squeeze page in my Warrior Forum Signature.

After about a day of participating a bit more than usual in the forum, I had a total of 15 subscribers and already one commission from the affiliate product I was promoting! Which happened to be $17.

Here is the part that really made me excited. I decided to release a free WSO and had a link to my squeeze page in the WSO offer. This brought me just under 100 subscribers and 6 sales of my affiliate product!

That gave me 100 new subscribers to my list and just over $100, not bad I'd say.

This is a method that literally anyone could do. It doesn't take that much time and all you need is a bit of elbow grease and time. Yes it takes a little bit of start-up cash but not much.

I hope this inspired people and gave you some ideas!

Thanks for reading.

    RAP Bank sounds like the sort of site MC Hammer should be promoting. Just sayin

    Nice work - keep pushing and pushing and you'll start to get to the point where you are pulling $500 days.

    From that point all you need to do is figure out ways of mostly automating them and you're set for life.

      I'm well on my way! My goal is $1,000 every day with no more than an hour of work per day, I know I can do it I just need to be stubborn enough to make it happen!

        It's certainly doable, just don't burn out on the journey otherwise you'll basically have to start all over again!

    Nice write up. This is a good example of having a targeted list to keep customers. Because they need a specified product. It's a gold mind to make a profit. So we have to scale it until we cover the target.

      Yes I am and will actually be starting it soon and will be releasing it as a WSO before I release it to the general public. I just want to make sure I have everything right so it can be a great product.

      Could you expand on where you got a squeeze page from and how you set this up?

      This info for me right now would be awsome.
      I actually bought a pack of squeeze page templates a while back from premiumsqueezepagetemplates.com and set it up using Kompozer, which is free.

      Also going to sign up to your list to spy on your tactics edit: where is it? I only see a few non-free WSOs about "how to make " etc.
      Haha feel free, it is at wsofortune.com

      That is true, only about $60 of the $100 on the first day was profit, but that was only the first day, I made a few more affiliate sales in the days after that so it ended up being over $100 in profit after about 4 days.

    Congrats on your first $100 day! I can tell you as you become more successful, you'll realize breaking that $100.00 barrier will make that $1,000 goal much easier to reach.

    You have good times ahead!

    One clarification, please, about your system. From what I read, it appears that you made all your revenue specifically from WF actions.

    Did you do any outside promotions other than the WF?

    Once again, nice going. I wish you every success going forward.

    Interesting Kenny, did this "first" $100 day happen before or after the $500 you made in 48 hours marketing CPA offers in offline classifieds, plus the $1000 you made from selling 200 copies of the $5 WSO describing that CPA method? BTW, the WSO did not work for me; I didn't even come close to recouping my ad costs, even though my sources had very large circulation. Too bad, I thought it sounded too good to be true...

      What a scammer! Click on his profile and read all his other posts. In them he claims to have made $500 in 48 hours etc.....So it's not really his first $100 is it?....Sounds like a catchy story to get us to sign up to his mailing list or buy a product to see how he did it.....Busted!

    For anyone new to business, or anyone in business in general, I think that this speaks volumes.

    This is big picture thinking.

    Congratulations on making it your own!

    It is as simple as taking somnething that works and making it your own.

    Congratulations Kenny first off good for you. Secondly I would like to also add i am adding Rapbank more and more to my affiliate marketing promotions the price points are usually lower than Clickbanks with a lot less refunds and it is an instant commission which I like a lot also.

    Keep up the good work!

      The first words of the post say, A little while ago, maybe I should have changed that to quite a while ago, because it wasn't very recent. This was how I had my very first $100 day and yes it was before I made the $500 with CPA.

      I offered refunds for anyone who didn't like the WSO, and I did give some, it did not work for everyone as well as it did for me. Instead of taking it up on this post and trying to publicly humiliate me you should have taken it up with me.

      Yes I did make about $500 in 2 days using CPA and I posted a WSO about how I did it, that was also very recent and happened after I made this $100. I also have never written anything about this before, I have no product or mailing list offer that involves this method.

      Do your research before being so quick to label someone as a scammer.

      Yes I did make $100 in one day, and yes it is easy to do. Unfortunately this industry is rife with not only scammers and dishonest people, but also people that think anyone and everyone is a scammer, usually simply because they do not understand something.

      You can believe what you want about my post and what I do.

        OK, my bad Kenny. I was just curious about the timeline, so I'm glad you explained it better for those who had already seen your WSO. As far as getting a refund, I would only do that if the method could not be implemented in my area. I was able to implement it, but took a loss on ROI. I was a little frustrated, but I still see potential in the idea behind the method, as long as it's the right offer advertised at the right time and place. I still find it a little hard to believe that you made $500 from only one ad using an email/zip submit offer, but I'm willing to suspend my disbelief because maybe you got really lucky. Those things do happen occasionally. Maybe in the future I'll try again (although with a different offer than the example used in the WSO this time) and have better results, but that will only be if I have money to lose on advertising. Good luck with your venture Kenny.

    Marketing CPA offers in offline ads, I keep hearing about this strategy and never get to trying it out. How many of you have tried this strategy, and how did it go?

    btw great story Kenny, always fun to read real life case studies
