Things you did to double your income once you were making money

8 replies
I'm curious about any "success stories" or breakthrough "aha's" you had to double your income once you had a site that was profitable. It's so easy to get pulled in a million different directions.

Did you just "pound the pavement" harder, or did you do it a smarter way, to break through that wall. How did you get to the point where you KNEW you'd finally made it, once and for all?

Anything that substitutes leverage for manual labor would be awesome.

    I always think try something new. Offline is extremely profitable as you only need a few clients and upsells to make a full time income (depending on your client of course). its a nice thing to get into and OUTSOURCE when you have a thriving autopilot internet marketing business going on.

    I don't really think this is ground breaking and certainly many people do this -- but when you have a proven system on how to make money online learn how to get more for what you have done.

    For example if you have learned how to make sales consistently through affiliate marketing -- aim at promoting products that have a recurring income, that way it builds upon itself every day/month/year.

    Also another great way is to outsource. By outsourcing you can let other people spend time on tedious task -- while you spend your time growing your business and income.

      It really depends on what you are doing to make money... I used to build niche sites, then I would spin off successful keywords into their own sites.

      3 years ago I switched to list building, now I build a funnel, test and tweak it it until it's profitable then drive more traffic to it.

    Once I knew it worked, I did more of what worked at an even faster pace, because I now had even more confidence in it...So I really went all in...

    Then, once I had built up that income to the point of where I could outsource the tasks I had mastered...Well, can you guess what I did?

    Yep! Then, I moved on to something else. On to the next one!

    Thanks for your feedback guys. I think I really resonate with Mark Thompson and Michael Cook's approach, it clearly being the path I chose.

    I think doing obvious things like getting an up sell in place to boost my margin and a good follow-up sequence in place will really help. Then obviously driving more traffic.

    I was just looking for the unicorn to magically materialize in a brief moment of weakness. LOL

    The biggest thing that I did in some niches was to raise prices.
    Competing on the basis of lowest price is almost always a losing
    proposition anyway.

    When you raise your prices, you have more to spend on
    advertising, more to pay out to affiliates, more to plow into
    product development and upgrades, etc.

    Raising prices allows you to out-bid your competitors on PPC,
    and in so many other places. It also attracts a different type of
    customer, one who wants the best, is very decisive, and rarely
    refunds.

    Did You Realize That The Majority Of Launches FAIL?
    Here's how to do a wildly successful launch!

    Yes, LOVE the deal about raising prices. The funny thing is, at these "micro" prices, I noticed I actually sell more at $20+ than in the lower $7, $12, $14, $17 ranges.

    But I definitely plan on creating a higher priced package, not just for the margin, but for better customers. People just don't value what anyone can pick up for a buck.

    I know I'm going against the grain of probably 50% of marketers mentality, but I actually want my customers to use my stuff to get results.

    But I know at a low price, it's waaaay tooeasy to put it on the back burner. It's almosst like a toss away price. Plus - getting your money back on your advertising, you're right.

    It's so important in order to reach more people!

    Awhile back we had a "Customer Lottery" that gave our customers one of our packages that was randomly picked for free if they make 3 purchases, this made our sales go up because our customers were buying packages by the threes! Although not everyone bought them in the threes so I theoretically didn't triple or double the profits, but we definitely got more sales.
