A couple years later, I hit $75k

38 replies
I haven't been around in a while but I got started on here a few years ago with an unlikely niche market. Many warrior lessons later, products, websites, and lots of help, I just hit $75k this year. Thank you for all I learned on here a few years back and to the hand up many gave me. It's not easy, but it is possible.

        Because people making the money don't waste their time making thousands of posts on here, they're working.

        To The OP - Well done. Although I would take the name of your site down and niche as they'll be vultures on here wanting to undo your hard work.

          Are you a psychologist? Doctor? How do you offer advice in this niche? How are you not breaking laws?

    Excellent, great example of how being persistent ultimately yields great results.

    It took Edison nearly 100 different light-bulb prototypes before the first one worked...

    Stay focused, stay working, say learning, and you WILL succeed in IM.

    This is an awesome story. What was the most important decision you took this year to be able to do all that money?

    Thats a very cool story, but I gotta ask: If you've been working at it for a couple years with "many warrior lessons" why is this your 1st post?

    This isn't my first post. I haven't been around in a year or so (all this working!) and I couldn't remember my sign in from a couple years ago so I had to resign up. I don't want to make this sound like a couple of years and viola, I made some income from this. It was 14 hour days, 7 days a week---4 print books later, several e-books, cds, dvds, newsletter, an online magazine, keynote speaking...etc. and THEN a little bit of success. There are probably a lot of warriors on here that made $$ a lot faster than I did. (This did NOT feel fast!!). And what I did is not any different than what everyone else has posted on here: create products, find ways of increasing SEO, market til you want to die, repeat and start over.

    Yes, I did change my nickname as I couldn't remember what it was as I haven't been on in a while. Yes, I am a psychotherapist with a masters degree in counseling. I have been doing this work for 20 years just figured out how to do it with products on the internet as opposed to an office.

      I believe this is important. Being familiar and passionate about the product/niche you target is important, specially at the beginning. At least that's what worked for me when I was starting out.

      It's much easier to get your business off the ground if you target a niche you relate to.

        For me, it's the only thing I've done over the past 25 years so it was my familiar territory. Lots of big websites now on counseling, etc. so it's not that this is different it's just a little different niche for IM, product development, etc. Anyway, you can do it with any niche if you can do it with the counseling biz. I would have never known that if I hadn't come across WF and met some great people on here who not only encouraged me, but helped me techincally get things going. I wouldn't say this was the quickest nor easiest way to make money but it is A way to do it especially from home!

    Someone asked what I did 'this year' to make this income. NO!! I think I got my first website in 2005 and found this forum maybe 2006 or 2007. So this did NOT come overnight. This has been several years, 14 hour days, grueling ass work and lots of help from technical people as I am fairly low tech. And this was not a new niche for me as I have always worked in this field. Anyway, just wanted to encourage someone today. I was doing my taxes which is what made me think of all this and this forum and how I got started. Still gotta work on that bottom line to get a bigger profit margin.

    The first 10k I made through IM and niche marketing was the best feeling ever! Such a great acheivement so I know how you feel. But I have to say congrats to you!

    Now i gotta tell ya, after I have made lots more than 10k through my online marketing efforts, i would say my first 10k was the hardest.

    but once you know how to make money and how to do it, things just get easier. Especially if you outsource it all.

    This is great. It just shows all the newbies here that if you do everything that you need to do, learn from others who are doing well, and never quit, you will really do very well online.

    It is great to see that you are doing really well and I wish you many more years of huge success online.
