"If you choose to go digital only as an e-book, this is where profit rules and amazing numbers can be achieved. How amazing? I know one man who nets between $5,000,000 and $10,000,000 per month with a single e-book and affiliate cross-selling to his customer lists."
I've heard about plenty of Clickbank stars taking in $10k+ per day and so on, but $10M in a month means you're pulling down over $300k per DAY.
Even if you're email list is 1 million people strong, it's hard to hit those kind of numbers.
What kind of author/affiliate is making $50 to $100 million per year? What type of scale are we talking about here?
What do you think? Full of it or is this legit? And if we assume that it is true, how is someone getting to those kinds of numbers?
This is only my 2nd post, so I can't put a link. The article is called, "How Authors Really Make Money: The Rebirth of Seth Godin and Death of Traditional Publishing" and it's on Tim Ferriss' blog The Four Hour Workweek.
p.s. I do realize the ridiculousness of asking a bunch of people that aren't making $100 million per year, how to make $100 million per year.
