I have just registered under my real name! Don't know why, but to start with I was here using a pen name, as I didn't feel comfortable using my real name. Had some weird idea that it might backfire on me in my normal day to day business. No, I'm not telling you what my other account is!
Now that I am actually doing IM as well as my daytime job, rather than lurking here and wondering, I have come clean.
So, my question.
How much do some of the guys here, and I assume many who aren't, actually make? nd how many of them actually make that? How easy is it?
We all see figures from the big launches of $1 million here and $10 million there, but in those cases, many are giving away at least half in affiliate commissions and must have loads of upfront costs. Sure, the margins are immense for digital products, but they have costs too.
Also, it seems to me that some of the big guys are actually making loads of money from things that they never talk about - Is Mike Filsaime behind paydotcom for instance? That's got to be massive for him.
So, after paying costs (and let's face it, Eben Pagan, must have a fair few staff now), how much are these guys making?
Oh, and how quickly did most of them go from skinted to minted, as we say in Blighty?
Please explain why you think what you think too.
I'm looking for something to aim at and also a realistically achievable goal.
BTW, I am technologially uselss but good at product creation.
Thanks for your thoughts.
