My First $300 Day. Yay!

32 replies
Hey Warriors,

A little success story here, I just had my first $300 day

I'm especially pleased since I had a TERRIBLE day yesterday, where I ended up losing $50 and having my business practically destroyed by a clueless freelancer.

I was actually about to throw in the towel, but I did some damage control this morning and it's paid off.

So, lessons learned:

1. Even if you have the worst day/week/month ever, don't give up.

2. If you outsource, try to make freelancers do things step by step and constantly 'look over their shoulder' to make sure they are doing it right.

So if today sucks, just make some improvements tomorrow.

Good luck!

    Nice job! In what area of internet marketing did you make it? A perfect example of how when you have set backs and feel like you will never succeed to keep pushing forward.

    Nice to see someone else success, keep it up bud!
    Enjoy the fruits but be sure to set some long term goals.

    I hit my $300/day about 7 months ago. Its a great feeling, trust me. I'm upto $500/day right now. Trying to hit $600.

    What I love about IM is, if you can make $X, you can always scale it up many times over and start making a bank.

      $600 a day is not hard at all.

      it is all about having something that is SCALABLE. obviously from what you said, you do have something scalable, just outsource say on elance or something similar.

      We have done this over and over again and have 90% of our business on outsource. There is nothing powerful...we even use video to make sure they are doing it properly and train them to do exactly what we do.

      I am sure if you do this correctly you can be making $600 - $1000 days very soon.

      Cheers

      Celente.

          I seen many people give up and coach many students that give up because

          1) they are afraid of success

          2) they are afraid of failure

          3) they dont see results in 4 seconds.

          4) they give up right before they are about to see success.

          No one ever said this online stuff was easy, otherwise, everyone would have quit their jobs and be working online. That is not the case.

          hard work and percevericne will help you win this game.

          How do I know? well I failed about 684 times, but my 685th time, I found the gold nugget....and the rest is history. No more working for a stinking boss or 9 to 5er for me. YUCK!!

          Hard work and dedication pays off. The faster you fail, the quicker you will find success.

    Great to hear that you've reached such a high income on a daily basis! I myself am fast approaching the constant $1/day mark, but there are days where the numbers wander much higher or lower. Baby steps I assume.

      Congrats. I'm jealous of you all. I've done a few $100 days. My goal right now is to hit a $2000 month.

      A consistent $300 - $500 a day would be awesome - I'd probably consider quitting my day job if I got to that level.

      But I know the feeling. I've had some good months and then some really crappy months that have had me on the verge of giving up... But things always seem to turn back toward the upside in the end and keep me moving forward.

        Are you serious...really.

        Most people cant make $100 a day.

        most peole cant even make $1 a day.

        So if you want $100, $200, $300 days consistantly. Ask this...

        what the hell did I do to create my $100 dollar days.'

        Mate,......track everything, and writer down everytime you got a sale. You will start to notice trends. i.e. what is working and which traffic source you are working and killing it with. It will stick out like dogs balls.

        Then when you have it written all down, go back to you little black book and see what worked the best. Then outsource this to someone proficient and tell them to to your work. We use elance. Then you upscale to more, and you will see insane results. Trust me. We have done this, test small scale to see what is working and then outsource what is working to others. The results you see will be incredible. Trust me.

        That is the secret for us creating businesses from $0 to building big lists and and bring in $xx,xxx a month. I know it sounds simple and blah blah yeah yeah. but I can say from experience that the simplest systems and funnels work the best.

        Hope this helps, and you see $500 days soon.

    You will always go through dry spells, even when things get really rolling - keeping the faith and continuing to consistently follow your plan is the key, then a few days later (as you noticed) things will pick up.
