$40 million dollars in a year?

12 replies
There is no such thing as too much abundance. Making 40 million dollars is no different than making 1 million dollars. If you have the knowledge to make 1 dollar, don't you think it's plausible to make $40?

Most marketers have a broken foundation of focus, therefore have a bad structure for making money. Remember this, you're not in it for the money. You're in it for what the money can ultimately provide, happiness. I can give you 3 million dollars right now and put you in some remote jungle on an island, lost. Now how valuable is that money? How about I now sell you a knife and some food for $1.5 million dollars, would you buy it? You sure would.

So the question isn't how can you make x amount of dollars; the question is "what can I provide that is a resonant value to what your audience lacks"? Be realistic with yourself.

Better yet, how can I amplify their problem to make them feel like it's as big of a deal as you needing supplies on that island? I coined this as "lost marketing".

Keep positive and nothing is impossible. NOTHING!

    I like the way you think Danny.

    As long as you approach your market with "what additional value can I give them" as your opening question, you'll be much farther ahead than most "marketers" in today's day and age.

    Yeah, I have to agree with you but non-the-less it is easy said than done. It would require a lot more resources, ideas, investments and much more to make 40 million in a year, but anyway this is a really inspiring post. Thanks.

    People in general are pretty smart. People know their problem is not like you needing supplies on that island. That is why conversions for marketers are 1-5% on average from cold traffic. Cold Conversions go up even higher when you show people that the value in the solution you provide is so much more then the cost that they feel like they are stealing from you when they buy the product. Proving the value.

    When one feels like they are buying a Lamborghini for the price of a scooter you have accomplished your mission.

    While I agree that you can increase your income by scaling up, it is not plausible to say if you make one million, you can make forty million.

    Some businesses can only scale so much before they run out of potential customers and remarketing your current customers would mean the average customer would have to spend forty times what they have already spent with you. When you run out of base, you need to change products or services to broaden your demographic and that means more training and product creation. You then risk the likely possibility of not taking care of your current base.

    Scaling up is something we all should be doing, but do it with reasonable expectations.

        I personally know 2 'used to be' millionaires. They ended up
        losing everything and the way back is long and hard.

        Sure, if you got the mindset and more importantly the skill-set
        of a Warren Buffet, you may be able to re-create wealth.

        If the OP was a millionaire it may add some weight to his
        personal opinion. Do I believe focus should come off
        the dollars and totally on 'helping people'? hmmm....

        I assure you majority of millionaires did not got rich helping

    Many people become millionaires because they work with passion. Their motive of working is to be rich and they will do any work that necessary to achieve their target.

    Helping others is the way they create chance to get wealth.

      Thanks Danny for this post, I (as well as others I’m sure) always enjoy & appreciate words such as this. People would be absolutely amazed at the possibilities if only we would just forget about the 'limitations' that we've been taught & conditioned to believe/accept due to the experiences we've face over the course of our lives.

      If only we could try to live our lives or pretend as if we were newborns again who knew absolutely nothing then anything surely would be possible because then what would we be afraid of? what would we know not to do if we never done it?

      but Anyway! I'm not going to get all preachy (like I'm sometime told from relatives) I just hope 2013 will be a (more) fruitful year for all of you guys here on WF especially those who share the same amount of enthusiasm & optimism for life & their dreams. But even for those who like to look at life from a more 'realistic' standpoint ...I wish you a fabulous 2013 as well.
