How I Got to a Point Where My Company Earns $10000/Month Net Profits

79 replies
Hi. I'd like to share how I got to the point of earning more than $10000/month since September 2006...

I’m a victim of senseless violence only a society like ours can do. As you may know by now: I’ve been totally blind, permanently, without possible treatment, for more than 7 years now…

I was gunned down, intentionally, by a complete stranger, while my wife and I were buying fried rice at a local food stall last November 2003. Twice. Chest. Head. Optic nerve: Goodbye. Eyesight: Goodbye. The world, as you know it by eyesight: Goodbye. The faces of my wife, my daughter, my mother, my father, my sisters and everyone I know and will meet in the future: Goodbye. Books, as you know it: Goodbye. Movies and TV shows, as you know it: Goodbye. The pleasure of travel, as you know it: Goodbye. The emotions of fashion and visual arts: Goodbye. Poof! All that, lost, forever. Yeah: Just because someone decided to take that all from me, permanently.

What to do, what to do…

I of course did what I needed to do to sustain my family’s needs. I should thank my wife and daughter, my inspiration and motivation to do what I do, each day. I should thank my friends and family, the ones responsible for balancing my sanity, each day. I should thank my colleagues, employees, partners and client friends, each day. I should thank Freedom Scientific, for developing my screen reader. I should thank JAWS, my screen reader software, for aiding me in my daily computer and information needs. I should thank society, the same one, yes, for ebooks, the Internet, audio books, Web pages, business and marketing. I have thanked God and continue to do so each day, of course…

My wife and I started Grayscale last September 2006, officially, though we actually started 5 to 10 months beforehand. Grayscale operates in the Information and Communications Technology industry. Information, I love it. Communications, no other way to live in this world without it, ’cause this is what makes us human. Technology, fascinated by it…

I’m totally blind. My wife has hyperthyroidism. I interpret every input from my environment through audio. A wrongly crafted statement loses the accuracy of the intended message for me. Wrongly interpreted messages produce incorrect, inaccurate results. You get the picture, I get the sound of that picture and a vision of that picture in my mind based on how that picture was described to me. You should get the picture by now…

My wife and I talk not just about business and marketing strategies, no. We also talk, regularly, about our daily communication strategies as a husband and wife with a 7-year old daughter, the light of our lives. We talk about the daily communication strategies of our family. We have been together for more than 10 years now, always side by side, never behind each other. We work as a team, a solid one with a stable foundation. We are a family…

Effective communications is largely important in a family, especially if you want to build a successfully happy family. A business is a family. You, your partners, colleagues and clients make up your family.

Communications is an integral component of a successfully happy business family. Sit down. Interpret things slowly and surely. Think things over. Talk things over. Act accordingly…

We started by writing for Write4Euros.Com. They paid €2.50 per 300++-word article. Payouts were released once you complete 100 articles. I outsourced these to my friends. I did Q/A work, so had a cut from their earnings. I then offered them to build their own team of friends to do more articles, with them earning by doing Q/A work. We began to grow in number, 4 teams, all work at home singles, moms and dads, collectively worth 40 people. Write4Euros.Com closed down after two years, so we wrote for them from 2003 to 2005...

I landed a job as an English content writer at a local outsourcing company here. Was paid $200/month for 4000++ words of unique, high quality content about Internet marketing, SEO/SEM, Web development, software programming and server setup, configuration and maintenance. My only experience in these specialized areas = I assembled computers and sold them at higher prices to my neighbors and social networks. I provided software troubleshooting and installation services to them. I offered Web development and design services one week after learning HTML, CSS, Flash and graphics design. This was the time before I went totally blind...

asked for additional work of course for added pay to support my family's needs. I went from 1 full time shift to 8 full time shifts. I was working 18 hours per day. I decided to outsource my 4 full time shifts to my friends, with me doing editing work...

I pursued other things while working at the local outsourcing firm since I could complete my 4 full time tasks and my Q/A work on the submissions of the friends whom I outsourced my other 4 full time shifts. I found Constant-Content.Com. I wrote for them, and these are my earnings in 2 to 3 months:




$25000 net profits in 2 to 3 months...

I cold contacted the corporation that regularly gave me private requests in Constant-Content.Com. They turned out to be Paretologic, Inc., and they bought Constant-Content.Com at that time already...

They hired me as their SEO/SEM and English content writer for their technology write-ups. Worked with them for 5 months. They loved the results they got. They asked me to hire more. They needed 60 English content researchers/writers with expertise in tech topics. They asked me to manage everything for them, from formulating business workflow systems, hiring and testing procedures, training systems, Q/A standards and management as well as performance charting systems. They asked me to register my own business so we can have a long term contract. I did that, and Grayscale was born...

After 5 months of working with them, our company, at this point a 60-employee strong company, they asked me to do what I did for our content development department and set up an SEO and traffic generation department. They needed 30 competent people for this, trained by me. We worked directly with Paretologic, Inc. this time, not within Constant-Content.Com...

While working with them for 1 year, one of their products became the best selling Microsoft Windows System Registry cleaner software of all time, with over 10 million sales last year. This was 2007...

They then bought RevenueWire.Com and referred us to their merchants and affiliates. Their merchants are software development corporations also operating in the system security industry among other niches in the main ICT industry...

From 90 employees, we grew to 120 employees, 30 subcontractors each with their own employees, 2 head offices here in Manila and 9 satellite offices in provinces across the Philippines...

We have opened a lot of departments since then and have been catering to the content development, software programming, Web development, graphics design and marketing needs of various international corporations, companies, businesses, home businesses and individual Internet marketers up until today...

Looking back, we started out with:

No website. No business email. No target keywords. No Google. No previous SEO knowledge. No previous Internet marketing knowledge. No backlinks. No push button solutions. No office other than our home. No resources other than our own time and skills plus a couple of computers and a residential DSL connection. No PPC. No CPC/CPM/CPA. No private ads. No solo mailing list ads. No joint ventures. No eyesight...

We do not need to give away fish, nor stop after we taught others to fish, but rather: We should revolutionize the fishing industry and start from there, and even what you may start isn't something big: It's a start, the first step towards your goals, so blaze new trails and find new routes to your dreams...

    Jim Collins writes about this phenomenon in his book "Good to Great". People react to tragedy in 3 different ways:

    1. They're totally defeated by it

    2. They get back to some semblance of normal

    3. They use it as a defining moment and triumph over it in towering fashion

    I'm glad you've chosen option 3. keep trucking

    Hi Marx,

    It's amazing, trully inspiring.

    A lot of people (including me) need "reason" to break down the lazy-ness.
    Most of the time, we forgot that we have more "leverage" than others.

    All the Best for You and Your Family

      Hi Max,

      Very inspirational story! Kudos to you, because you are helping other people, too - not just doing it for yourself!

      I read other stories about people here always. They are complaining, and blames others for his own lack of success. Yet they have that ability, which you are missing.

      I would require them to read, learn your story, and ashamed themselves a bit. Then stand up and work.

      Thank you, and wishing you future successes,

      Sandor

    Very inspirational. I wonder- do you still curse the guy who shot you? Certainly you've done very well with the adversity put in your path.
    A few questions from a possible and humble furture devotee.
    How did you survive those first few desperate months of handicap and reduced income?
    It was great the you built your sucess while helping others make money.
    How did you recruit? Straight out employee, subcontractor, franchaise?
    Was there much turn over of staff?
    How did you handle QA family and firends, that must have been tough telling those close to you about their faults in writing.
    Man there is so much of this story thats missing. Tell us about the details.
    Do you realize the story itself is a Major Major money making op. If you wrote a how to model, Id buy it. Shoot you should write a movie script and sell it. I pay to go see it.
    cough up some more details man. I feel like a kid who got a lick of an icecream cone and nothing more. Gime Gime Gime more pleeeease!

      A month after I got out of the hospital: I did nothing but wait for a miracle. One day, I just told myself: This will not be the quality of life my family will live. Never. So my wife and I installed JAWS, the screenreader software I use from Freedom Scientific, and offered CD development services for corporate giveaways, marriage giveaways, birthday giveaways, etc. That wasn't enough...

      We offered computer assembly and maintenance services. My wife guided me as I assembled computers, from the processor to the CPU case. My wife guided me when I installed operating system software since my screenreader needs to have an operating system before it can work. Still, that was not enough...

      I tried looking for employment opportunities provided by non-government organizations catering to the needs of disabled people here. One offered a medical transcription course in exchange for Web development services. Since I did not have enough money and medical transcription looked like a worthwhile job: I told them I knew HTML, CSS and a bit of PHP, even if I did not know how to do these things while totally blind, because I used software to build websites back when I still had eyesight. They told me they needed one week to make the necessary arrangements. I used that week to learn hardcoded PHP, HTML and CSS using Notepad. I entirely revamped their website in terms of maximum accessibility for disabled people who use accessibility software. I did this five times a week, from early mornings to early afternoons, and took the medical transcription classes for the blind during late afternoons to early evenings. The website won the most accessible website of Asia in June 2006. September 2005 to December 2005 were the months used by the judges of the Asian organization of Internet accessibility for disabled people to monitor the changes made to participant websites. I worked, from September 2005 to November 2005, as the website developer of the site that won the award. They never told me anything about the award. Just learned about it from the dude who handed the award at the event held in Taiwan to the webmaster of the local school for the blind where I worked and took medical transcription classes. He's an Irish fellow and was the former official consultant on technology by the Taiwanese government. We are still good friends...

      When I noticed my medical transcription trainors weren't exactly qualified to teach the blind strategies, techniques and tips for medical transcription because their computer and screenreader skills, more so their English communication skills, weren't even close to decent, I bailed out...

      This was the time I searched for other local opportunities on the Internet and found an English content researcher/writer job at a local outsourcing firm here and write4euros.com. The rest is in my original post...

      We went to local university job fairs, offered recurring monthly referral commissions to our friends, family, colleagues and the people they know per qualified applicant they refer to us. They receive these commissions each time their qualified referrals complete full time or part time daily quotas worth 20 full time or part time work days per month. I initially wrote all training materials and samples. I personally gave them retraining and reorientation sessions every Saturday. It's a good thing administrative staff, assistants, trainors, Q/A specialists and team leaders are now there to help my wife and I run our company. I initially formulated applicant screening, testing, hiring, training, work supervisory and performance charting systems. It's a good thing our HR managers and office managers/supervisors are now there to help us implement these systems for our company...

    Very inspirational, thank you for posting. Maybe with all the money you're making you can get to try some experimental treatments for blindness like prosthetic eyes or stem cells? There is definitely hope for your eyesight yet, progress is being made in this area all the time. God bless.

    Truly an incredibly inspirational story! One of the things that impressed me the most was, of course, not only how you overcame such personal tragedy but how on the way to success you kept bringing your friends and family in on journey. There are a lot of great lessons to be learned from your tale, my friend.

    Amazing.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Hahaha! Became a touch typist a month after permanent total blindness. Was a two-finger typist back then. Well, all schools and universities here, from preschool to post graduate studies, teach all subjects in English and have all text and work books in English, except our Filipino subject, our native language, of course. 90% local media companies here also use English. Have been talking daily to native English speaker friends, clients, colleagues, partners, employees and subcontractors via face to face chats, IM text chats, IM voice chats, phone conversations and email for well over 10 years now. You can watch this video so you can attach a real human voice and a real human person in motion to my Marx Melencio username and avatar here ==>> Yes, the dude in the video's me. This was done by the Asia Pacific Development Center on Disability of the United Nations...

    What a wonderfully inspirational story Marx.

    Jeff is a fellow I have known for some years who was blinded while working on an automobile engine when a fan blade broke off and hit him across his eyes. I guess he has been blind about ten years now, but instead of becoming motivated to take charge of his life, he has all but given up.

    He lives by himself and spends much of his time bemoaning his condition.

    I will see him tomorrow for a few hours and take along a copy of your post to read to him.

    Thank you.
