What does it take to make 10,000 a month?

My goal is to build my business up to the point where I am making $10'000 a month.. So I want to ask marketers who make 10,000 and more a month, what they consider to be the most important things they do that contributes most to their income?

At the moment I am making roughly $200 (100 from squidoo, 75 from Amazon and 25 from comission junction) I'm looking to double this by the end of this month and to have a website up for my niche... I am mainly promoting amazon products which is clear by my income breakdown I've shared but what takes a monthly income of a couple of hundred into the tens of thousands?

I would love to know, so that I could step things up a little and get results that will make a difference to not onlty myself but to the lives of my loved ones..

Thanks for your time guys

    The best way to make $10,000 is to do this.

    Find a product on Clickbank that can bank you up to $230-$250 per customer. This could be with some upsells.

    So if you need $10,000 and you get around 40-50 people to buy the product and the upsells, you will be able to make $10,000 per month.

    The product might sell for $39 and you get $19 commission. Then the customer is hit with another upsell that gets you $130 in commission. Then another upsell that gets you another $90 commission. That is a total of about $239.

    If you can get 40-45 people like that, you will make close to $10,000.

    A lot of people are doing that every single month.

      talfighel, great tip, accurate and simple calculation )))
      How is it possible to tell from clickbank product description whether or not it has an upsell?

      Often one needs to buy in order to find out about upsells and OTO's.

        You should be buying all the products you are promoting anyway! How do you know if the product does what the salespage says it does if you haven't bought the product? This is how people are being caught out at the moment. It is not just the vendors responsibility to deliver what is promised but also the affiliate that sends the traffic.

        Also how can you pre sell your leads to an offer you have no idea about?

        I would always say BUY THE PRODUCT BEFORE PROMOTING IT!!! (yes I did mean to shout)

        I see so many people jumping on the latest product launch bandwagon without even looking at the salespage! They just see oh so and so is promoting it therefore it must be good. Or look they are giving away an iPad to the top promoter! That could be me!

        Always check your product out entirely before promoting it!

          Its funny i see the same group of people promoting the same garbage everyday,
          I would rather promote products that don't deceive people and be sucessful at it, and then later I always have the option of buying my own ipad lol

        Hey velant you can find whether a product has an upsell or not by closely observing the description in clickbank for ex a product has int $/sale as 39$ but the description says 600$ commissions per sale or by viewing affiliate page hope this helps

    You can't start making that kind of money overnight. You can, but this requires big investments. Just make a plan and stick with it. Work every day - at least 1 to 2 hours. The more you work the faster you will get there.

    When I read this headline the first thing I said was A LOT OF HARD WORK. Making that kind of money is possible. But you have to work at it and have different revenue generating websites and landing pages.

    And be persistent.

    If you have 5-10 websites that are getting a few hundred uniques a day and promoting high ticket items, you can pull 10k a month relatively easily.

    I agree that you should buy the product before buying it. Personally I started only promoting products that I really believe in and that I would use myself. This way I was able to give a more honest review about the given product and people really appreciate that.

    As far as making $10,000 a month...it seems like you have found something that works for you to make $200 a month, so now you need to massively scale that up! Start by doubling it, and then doubling it again and in a few months you should be getting closer to your goal!

    I'd have to add to this - building a list. Once you've got a list of subscribers and buyers built up it's many times easier to make sales and be able to generate a monthly income like that.

    Not really sure what your question is.. You say you're already earning a couple hundred / month. What's stopping you from scaling this up? Sure, it's hard work and time, but there's no reason to go out and look for a better "formula" when you've already got one that's obviously working for you. Just focus!

    The best way to build a $10,000 income is to start building a list. Offer valuable content 60% of the time and promote Clickbank products with good EPC's the other 40% of the time. Then develop your own products and make sure you have a profitable backend, including continuity.

    One Word:


    SCALABILITY


    Start small, test, tweak, and scale up.


    Depending on your situation, start with affiliate marketing using rapbank, paydotcom, and clickbank. Find cheap and free sources of traffic and start driving traffic to YOUR squeeze page.

    Then test different variables.

    Make tweaks as necessary.

    Then scale up.

    Start another website.

    Repeat the steps above.

    Then consider putting up your own product.

      I want to commend you on getting as far as you have . Now its all about doing the same thing over and over again. If your system isn't broken, don't try to fix it, just scale it up.
      There is no way an affiliate can afford to buy all the products you promote, but... you can definately research the products for both pros and cons ..look for the ones with lots of pros and few cons then read, read , read until you feel like you know the product inside out . While you are doing that you can be writing content, killing 2 birds with one shot. .

    Hi David,

    You are on right path... You need to create LOT of value and OWN virtual estate online
    to bring the good solid income every month. You need to get that site up as soon as possible,
    then you need to have few sites more setup.

    Then you need to have good targeted traffic to your sites.
    Also you need to build list.
    Plus you need to create own front-end as well as back-end products in
    your Niche...

    So you have Good Buying Niche.. Get them to your virtual estates.. Offer
    them value (by making offer of your products)... Get them into your List..
    Get Repeat Sales by providing more and more value.

    You need to stand out in your Niche as someone who UNDERSTANDs the Market,
    and Their Needs and Wants.. and as someone who CARES about them..and
    provides MASSIVE VALUE to them....Do this and you will have all the MONEY you
    want in your Niche.

    Wishing you all the best,
    Mohsin Rasool

    Systems.

    Whatever task you do, write up a checklst as you go so that you can then outsource that task to someone else in future (or at least you'll have a step-by-step map to follow next time you need to do it yourself).

    Systems have enabled me to go from working 15 hour+ days/7 days per week and earning a pittance to working 4 days and earning $10k + per month. It is doable but it is easier with systems.

        I will tell you, I am not currently at the 10k - BUT -

        I can tell you this much from what I have consumed myself.

        You need to get away from the squidoo and amazon and commission junction to get there.

        The big issue at hand is you are reliant on other companies that can shut you down in a heartbeat.

        I also need to question if you have been listbuilding? Because a proven buyer is a buyer is a buyer and will buy again.

        So, maybe this can give you some idea on how to change up your current system.

        Systems are extremely important. Listbuilding is important. Owning your own online real estate is important. Getting your own product or service in order and finding affiliates to promote for you is also a big piece of the puzzle.

          The best education is your own wallet and testing when it comes to paid traffic.

      Wow dude... this is just a horrible attitude. You know better than this... and if you don't you need to change your attitude right now.

      People ARE doing it. In fact, I have many friends doing 6 figs/MO.

      This is a massive industry filled with tons of successful people just like you. Just get the hunger and go take it. That's all it takes.

      The thing is, most people don't have the drive. It's easy. You just have to focus and GO for it.

      Most people would rather not go out of their comfort zones.

      It's that simple.

    It's possible, but it doesn't happen overnight.

    Once you make that and more, the hardest part is maintaining it.

    Multiple income streams is the best way I've found to do it consistently.

    NEVER ever rely on ONE income stream. It could literally dry up overnight. It's happened to my twice now and the second time I recovered a lot faster because I had other income streams.

    I say spread yourself out and get 10 income streams providing for you at least.

    When you're up you feel like you'll never be down again and when you're down, you feel like you'll never be up again.

    It depends on your financial situation.
    Do you need your small income or can you reinvest it?
    Personally I think quite often people get distracted by the endless ways to make money they end up knowing quite a lot about quite a lot but they find it challenging to systemise that knowledge in a way to make money.
    Anyway that certainly happened with me
    A huge amount of any business and life success is about focused and continuous action
    You have found a way to make some money, so my suggestion is focus on that and get it growing, reinvest your profits and start to outsource in order to gear up.
    If you are determined to find a quicker path then pick the area and find the best coach in that field to short cut your learning.
    Best of luck

    Hey David, I admire you for having these goals for yourself... I know that i dont have alot of posts in here but id like to chime in... To get to $10,000 a month you need to keep consistent at it, Treat it like a physical business like a Pizza Hut or something becuz itll make it much more worth going after that goal when you have set in your mind this is an "ACUTAL BUSINESS".

    What i mean by Pizza Hut is NO ONE and i do mean NO ONE is going to invest Half a Million Dollars in a Business to see it fail... The Thing is with alot of marketers is that they will work 1 hour a week on this and after 2 weeks if there not making no money they think its a scam.... So My advice being an advanced marketer is to keep Consistent at what your doing right now, Once you learn a particular System that is making you money, Outsource it, Train your outsourcers on how you want the work done and then Invest in yourself and go on to another System that will make you money, Rinse and Repeat every time you learn and Master a system that makes you money keep doing that and you will get to $10,000 in no time...

    Hope this Helps and All the Luck to You Buddy,

    If you can get those things down and do them as often as possible, working as hard as possible then you can make any goal you have set for yourself.

    Build a List man !
    If you can't generate traffic to the squeeze page;

    Invest in a facebook marketing course, or Commission Overload by Tim Atkinson, which ius my fav. course EVER.
    Anyways...

    If you already know how to market on Facebook; and you havn't done it yet.. Just go on over to Fiverr; look up facebook ad coupons and that's it.
    You can get up to $50 free in coupons.

    Better yet, do a review on a product that has allot of good reviews and send the fb ad to the squeeze page where you have a video reviewing it, and what not, so they optin in then are redirected to the product. Win Win situation.

    Hope this helps. x)

    Try and concentrate on more physical products and services. Focus more on Am#az#on and C#J. For A., get a mix of a lot of lower priced, easy to sell items. Add to it, some high priced items, over $100, that sell well. This mix will help bump you up in the commission scale. For C#J, find some good offers that appeal to you. Make sure the EPC is good and has a decent payout. Build some mini sites which will push your visitors to the conversion pages. Also, you could take your Squid. pages and feed traffic to these exact mini sites. You have to be careful not to link all your sites together and try and spread them across a few IPs. The next most important thing is to scale the other things that have been working well for you. Once you know how to make $10 online, it's really about just doing more of the same.

    3. Create an upsell that goes with it.

    We do very well online and offline. I do not have to give figures...but we have been quite successful from following other marketers and having a good little sales funnel. Over the years our process is to refine this funnel but it is important to get it all going.

    This is what our most successful sales funnel looks like.

    freebie> list > sales page > OTO > products $37 > $197 product > $497 Product > Coaching > video Coaching > VIP Membership > Offline seminars coaching!

    This works very well for us. but I think it is all about funnels and having a proven product with a good offer.

    Cheers.

    There are many ways to do this. You can offer SEO services which is the most easiest thing to do. For that you have to find lots of clients. You can outsource your work too.

    PPC and PPV are also very good make 10,000 a month.
