How Much Money Do You Make?

88 replies
Sorry if this has been done before. Just like to have a little extra motivation. I'm wondering how much people are making a month? And wondering who has the biggest online income around here? Just for fun sake. Plus I would know who is really doing it and who isn't. Not that you couldn't lie i guess but whatever. From small to large, would just like to see some success. I'd like to get to 10k a month eventually. I make about ...loose change and some lint per month just from google ads right now. Getting ready to develop some products and do some affiliate stuff too.

      Wondering if I should try to sell a fitness based e-book-training system, etc., on ebay. Is your product an e product?

        Fitness products are hot right now. I noticed a lot of top clickbank guys are in fitness/sports this year.

        I have not had any success (yet) with selling digital products on ebay..this was before the new ebay rules..but, I've "killed it" with physical products!

        Selling physical products on ebay has made me up to $1,200 per day...net profit! I've had $800 days....$300 days...all from marketing physical products on ebay.

            I can't for the life of me understand how you can ASK anyone what they make, that's no ones business as all... and unless your a Publicly held company where you disclose it needs to stay that way...

            The only reason I answered this... It burnt me under the collar that anyone would have the Audacity to ask this in the first place...

          Ebay was a waste of time and money for me. I only made between 500-600 over 3 months.

          I've had better luck with FB PPC and doing the old WOM marketing...not being a douche or a spammer and gently getting affiliate products in front of people.

          That takes a lot of time and effort, but that's how i really started making something.

            I'm in several niches and make 500-2000 a month doing affiliate marketing.

            Niches im involved with are:

            bodybuilding
            wealth building
            MMO
            Green Energy

            I have a handful of websites and blogs, including an e-commerce site for renewable energy. I only ever made a few hundred from sniper sites so im not focused on those. I know the real money is in product creation. I'm currently working on a down to earth membership site on MMO and will be looking for affiliates here soon enough.

            It's been really tough because I', a college kid, but I know if i stay focused I'll pull it off and be one of those real internet millionaires. No bull**** is my policy and it works pretty well so far.

      Wow - You make that much from ebay?

      I've not touched ebay for years. I used to make a bit in the day selling ebooks when they still allowed digital downloads...but I then got lost in the mire trying to dropship the same products as everyone else on the planet LOL.

      Good luck and long may it continue for you!

    you are going to get a lot of stiff answers in here.

    You do not have to be Nostradamus to predict that one. LOL.

    Chances are, if you come here and ask that question, well then you should expect it.

    Also I am guessing that you do not earn alot online each month,. Probably $0 am I right?

      He said that he makes some money from AdSense... Not sure how much some is, but it's probably not much.

      Like celente said (if this is what he was trying to say) many people on here won't tell you how much they are earning. The cold hard truth is that most people on this forum are earning $0 so this isn't the best question to ask in order to get motivation.

        Agreed. Most people would rather talk the talk then walk it. I'm doing well man. and it's all VERY DOABLE. You just need to not look for others approval on what/how you do things... I think people on this forum get caught up in "making sure it's the right move with everyone on WF before taking action" which is cool... but a lot of times..

        you'll spend too much time figuring out the ideal move when honestly a lot of times you are getting advice from "the talkers" and not the doers.

        Just hop in man. and create something, over deliver, and get the value of what you've made in front of people.

      Like I said in the first post. I make crumbs. But I'm not claiming to be a IM guru. I guess I didn't really think about how loaded of a question this was amongst all that goes on around here. I guess this will go nowhere, I will continue to get odd answers and should probably just close the thread.

      I know. But the products are all regurgitated bro-science and generally suck. But yes, I've learned to just give people what they want. And that's what these products do.People just want to sweat. Any fool can make another fool sweat. I at least want some real substance in mine.

      Yea as I said I didn't realize how loaded and setup for nonsense this question was. Guess my personality kicked in before my brain did. It's late and the benadryl is kicking in. Forgive me.

        not another one of these threads!
        honestly, it really isn't anybody's business what a person makes online. There are certain questions that should never be asked because it is considered in "poor taste"...there I said it.

        and it is more important what YOU do in your life not what other people do. What works for you, won't necessarily work for me and vice-versa.

        so my advice to you, OP, is stop worrying about what other people do. Focus on your stuff, focus on a plan - get to work. Best of luck to you!

            Mind your own business.

            IMO questions like this are intrusive, rude, and vulgar

            Marketers who claim (and can prove) earnings on sales pages is a different matter; that's voluntary and promo-related.

            when i say 99% of the people here
            IM is going to hell in a handbasket - and quickly. Last year people were saying 95% failed, last week 97% were failing and now we're up to 99% faiure rate? Wow - what a load of it.

            I never trust anyone willing to plop down an income number when a total stranger asks (in public) "how much do you make".

            I never trust anyone who says they found "the answer" - and that answer is in their signature.

            Come to think of it - not too many people I do trust.

            If you can't get motivated to work by looking at your own bank account, knowing the income of others won't help you.:rolleyes:

            Well, they should grow up.

            The subtitle of this forum is "Where we talk about making money".

            You'd really have to be actively looking for something by which to be offended, to find the OP "offensive", in this case.

            If they don't like saying how much money they make, for whatever reason (and I see that there can be many valid ones), they have no need to post in the thread at all. The question is a legitimate one, whether they like it or not (and the OP, in this instance, actually took the trouble to start the thread with both an apology and an explanation!). To post - in those circumstances - just to whine that they don't like the question is <add adjectives to taste, stir well, swallow and regurgitate violently and then move smoothly on to another thread> ...

    Well, I think it is interesting actually... I would like to know how many are actually making money online... I myself arent getting a regular income from it but some how I started up a SEO company and I'm making some extra money from that... used to have a highly ranked sniper site but it got lost in the SERP...

    So make one that is not regurgitated, and doesn't suck. Being DIFFERENT is how you succeed. Stand out, while still providing value. People don't just want to sweat either.. they want to get their asses absolutely kicked. P90x, Insanity, AthleanX, Asylum... just prove this 100%... People just seems to love getting crushed. If you go the fitness route, do it your own way. I grossed near $300,000 this year on jumping programs because I was CRAZY different, Bold, and brought something that wasn't regurgitated, nor sucks! Just because "they" do that, def. doesn't mean you have to or should.

      online - 8-10k a month

      i started online 4 months back. have a clear goal/path direction. work towards it. never give it. it IS AS SIMPLE as that.

      you will fail because:

      1) u are lazy
      2) u are stupid (your idea isn't viable in the first place)

      i don't understand why people still don't get it over here. explains why probably 99% arent making money.

        We're lazy, stupid and apparently 99% of us, "aren't making money". I think you just managed to insult just about every member here on the forum.

          yes................... some people need to know the truth to WAKE UP.

          either you.....

          1) get hurt by my reaction and TAKE SERIOUS ACTION and start making money

          or

          2) you give up totally because you do not have enough drive or are not hardworking enough..


          ramone_johnny, we have had our differences but you know i am speaking the truth when i say 99% of the people here don't make money. you are the 1% and i respect what you are doing and you are good at it. all the more power and kudos to you.......

          i am not the sort that will make everything sound nicer just to make you feel better. i believe in the "hard" way of scolding to wake fellow warriors up and make them take action. believe me when i say i hope all warriors can succeed in their IM journey.. that's what we're all here for, isn't it?

                  Who said anything about Adsense? I certainly didn't.

                  I dont have a problem with your claims so long as you're not being dishonest. What I DO have a problem with is calling people "lazy" or "stupid".

                  It took me 2 years to get my head around internet marketing before I was making any decent income. And I dont consider myself either one of those.

                  Nor do Im sure a lot of others here, that are just starting out.

                    Exactly...

                    @bobcarlsjr
                    Actually you would be surprised at some of the people that can't get going making money online.

                    Lazy and Stupid are actually the least likely reasons.

                    Fear is actually the number one problem. Fear of the unknown, fear of failing, etc...

                    I have talked to some pretty damn intelligent people that have a hard time wrapping their head around internet marketing of any kind.

                    The reason they have such a hard time is often because of their intelligence believe it or not.

                    Those people suffer analysis paralysis in the most severe way.

                      Actually you would be surprised at some of the people that can't get going making money online.

                      Lazy and Stupid are actually the least likely reasons.

                      Fear is actually the number one problem. Fear of the unknown, fear of failing, etc...

                      I have talked to some pretty damn intelligent people that have a hard time wrapping their head around internet marketing of any kind.

                      The reason they have such a hard time is often because of their intelligence believe it or not.

                      Those people suffer analysis paralysis in the most severe way.

                      But they are far from being Lazy or Stupid...
                      if you're smart, you understand basic principals quickly and easily. IM is considered to be extremely easy to understand if you compare it to rocket science.

                      and we're talking about the people that actually have started their IM journey.. and have loss money.. so fear wouldn't be considered a factor........

                      stupid might be too harsh a word.. i have apologized in my previous post.. but you get my drift....................

                    It took me 2 years to get my head around internet marketing before I was making any decent income. And I dont consider myself either one of those.

                    Nor do Im sure a lot of others here, that are just starting out.
                    ramone, please don't take this personally, but if you take 2 years to make a decent income online.. something is very wrong.......

                    if you're lazy and you work 1 day a week, then it's just simply you aren't suceeding or suceeding fast enough because you're lazy

                    if you're not lazy and you work 20 hours a day, 24/7, but you still can't make money... then what is it if you aren't "stupid" ? ok maybe that is too harsh a word to use, i apologise.. but i stat facts as they are...... i don't sugar coat things......

                    i work offline in a fortune 500 MNC and the boss has a famous saying.. "i have 0 tolerance for stupidity".. and he acts the way he thinks.. if anyone doesn't perform they're fired immediately..........

                    so tell me.......... if it's not lazyness or stupidity, tell me, WHY ARE PEOPLE FAILING?

                I will say that, since I have started making 4 figures a month, from about $70 a month half a year ago, WF has changed drastically for me. I guess I have learned *enough* at this point because while I used to be interested in so many threads, now almost everything I read in the main forum and Adsense/SEO forum is garbage. It is people who don't know what they are doing counseling other people who don't know what they are doing.

                99% or even 95% might be an unfair percentage, but I would be surprised if it was much lower.

                I don't think I would have realized this a few months ago.

          i took a different approach from most ppl here.. in fact i'm not even sure if you can truly call it IM.

          instead of MFA, micro niche sites, CPA, clickbank, etc... i set up authority sites for my niches...... i have less than 5 sites now... making ~500/mth from adsense...... i have 30 companies paying for banner ads... 50usd-250usd a month..... easily 8-10k per month, no?

          if i have the free time, i am thinking of implementing paid membership in my sites.. this should bring up my annual income to 2-300k........

          i'm hoping though.........

          i believe in quality over quantity... 5 AUTHORITY sites can make you 6 figures a year.. why bother with 5000 micro sites to make the same amount?

    I just broke the $3k per month mark this month. Last year at this time I would have been lucky to make $300 in a month. For me that has been a big improvement and it really proves to me that if I just keep going it will only get better. Good luck to you.

    Right now I'm grossing 20-25k/m all on clickbank selling my personal products.

    I usually do 2-3 launches (JV) a year, monthly internal promotions, and fire out 5-6 products/programs annually.

    It's been a 4 year ride, and one hell of a journey. The thing is, honestly anyone can be successful if the right action steps are taken.

    No you don't... You don't really want to know who is making it online and who isn't. What you're trying to do is look to see who is making the most money and then copy what they are doing.

    I have a 9-5 still and do ok there.
    Online I'm making about $1000 per month right now.
    Most of it is writing (some on fiver, some direct clients).

    I have two membership sites which make about $20-100 per month (I made them for fun years ago so they are not really set up well to make tons of money, just to pay for their hosting).

    I make about $30-100 on adsense as well. I'm working on growing this over the next 3-6 months to hopefully get $250-500 a month on adsense if my plans go as well as I hope...which they likely won't. lol.

    Good luck!

    I understand that you want some proof or motivation that making money online is possible. More importantly, it's a matter of what you do AFTER you get the money :-)

    Most people get too concerned over what to do to get money... and they keep trying to get more, without giving any thought of what to do after they get money in order to sustain a passive income over time.

    If you get money, you should put it to work for you.

    I don't personally get offended by this question, as this allows the OP to interact with people who are doing what he wants to do. Given anyone can type down an amount of income, and look like a rockstar, so be weary... I actually had the same thoughts go through my head when I first started out... How much DOES everyone make???

    If hearing these amounts helps you, and fires you up, use it. Use whatever will light that fire to succeed and roll with it. I can def. see why people would get offended though, but I think that's the cool thing about forums, you can pick and choose what you choose to be a part of and what you don't. I have over looked posting in a few threads here that I felt were personally distasteful, but this one I personally wasn't offended by and took part.

      Everybody who is pushing something will inflate his income to make it seem like his product is more valuable.

      Newbies/Kids will post how they make 10K/month because they need the attention.

      Somebody who is making a killing will not tell you what he is doing, because non-creative zombies will be looking to copy/paste the crap out of his business.

    Honestly you can never know who is telling the truth or who is flat lying whether its by editing their adsense numbers, or photo shopping clickbank checks, or renting/standing next to expensive cars to take a few quick photos. One thing is for sure though and this i what I love about IM: The numbers that people throw out there whether they really make that kinda cash or not IS ACHIEVABLE and that is motivation enough for me.

    I agree with what many on here are saying in that if they are truly making a killing they wouldnt tell you and if they did it would be the most vague of explanations on what they are doing to not put that cash flow at risk in any way. You really gotta take all of what people are saying with a grain of salt and just stay focused and motivated cuz that is the only thing that will get you there.

        I guess I need to work on my marketing approach but I stay away from the coaching threads on here so I don't seem to be desperate.

        Honestly, why, if you are making 10 thousand a video (I think you meant to say $1000) why even worry with selling the product .. just make an extra video a week.

    Doesn't this come up every quarter? At least? And I always reply the same way..only my wife and accountant know the real number. The public? I make between a lot and a little. Though, to give some insight, most of my money comes through passive income channels (I got into Adsense way before most..I hit the ground running with sites when the program was released from beta), but I do well on the outside world as well. Consulting is a big hit. I'm probably a month or two away from getting some conference floor space and sending out an area wide marketing blast for those interested in achieving more with an online presence for their business marketing methods. You'd be surprised at how hungry people are in learning about driving business through several online channels. They'll pay, and pay handsomely for that knowledge.

    I just wanted to jump in and share what I make. I pull in about $100 Billion a month, and then I take two months off for vacation.

    I know, I know, this number sound ridiculous, but it's completely true.

    I make this money selling my own products on a couple sites I have. One site is recipes for cheesecake, and the other is a sub niche of the fitness market: How to lose the fat behind your left knee.

    You'd be surprised, but most of my cheesecake customers actually end up BECOMING fitness students. I just keep recycling them between the two programs, over and over.

    I know some of you are skeptical, so I took this screen shot of last year's income before I withdrew it all. Before the skeptics jump on here, no, it's NOT photoshop'd.



    And just so you guys know, if your paypal account doesn't look like this at all times, you're probably just lazy or stupid.

            Please, just stop. You're not accomplishing anything other than inflating your own ego. People don't want to hear you on here calling them stupid and lazy, they want people who can actually CONTRIBUTE to the forum.

      Can I use this on my blog? I could show people that if they work hard they too can make lots of dough.

I'd like to get to 10k a month eventually. I make about ...loose change and some lint per month just from google ads right now. Getting ready to develop some products and do some affiliate stuff too.
    I make about $300 a month in 99% passive income (maybe once a month I have to write an email or something) from a site I made a few years ago.

    It's not much, but a decent start. I'm currently working on duplicating my past success with the same business model.

    It really matters as internet marketing isn't like a job when you are certain that each month they'll hand you a check of $x,xxx amount. For me (I should say my company), I usually make around $100,000 per month, gross profit without expenses of hiring employees and advertising. I would say I net about $20,000 per month for myself. That is the usual and almost certain income I make each month. On product launches I make another ~$40,000-$100,000 that month. On holidays I usually also boost my income by a lot.

    Again, I can't tell you for certain that I am making a precise amount each month because internet marketing is full of surprises -- not getting handed a check each month.
