I am 55 and had my first $1K day in 3 months - Here is how I did it

by Greenville 179 replies
I have wanted to make a post and provide testimony on this forum for a long time but I hesitated for several reasons.

First, English is not my first language and I feared I would not be properly understood, but I was told that my English is very understandable.

Secondly, I did not want to appear to brag by talking about my success. Then I thought that my goal was not to show me better than I am, but to help those who need motivation.

Finally, I hesitated to make this testimony because I was not sure that anyone would be interested.

Now that you are warned, let me share with you some of my experience. I only hope that it will interest you, motivate you ... and that you will understand what I am saying!

I appeal especially to newbies but also to those who doubt the potential of Internet marketing.

Over time, I realized that the majority of those who earn money (or who try to earn money) online are young guys, as most of them are under 30. There are very few women who are interested in this business and I do not think there's a lot of guys that are over 40. I do not found this information on a comprehensive study, but from my personal experience.

I became an affiliate a little over a year ago and I had my first $1,000 profit day three months after I started at the age of... 55 years. As you can see, I am not a typical example of an affiliate!

I was addicted to this business as soon as I managed to win $10 in one day. That day, I realized that if I could earn $10 in a day, I could earn $20, $50, $100 and more. I set goals and as soon as I was reaching one, I aimed a little higher.

One of the networks I worked with had a contest. The prize was a trip to Las Vegas. To win, I just had to be among the top 10, just that! This was my biggest goal last year. I dove in without thinking too much and I got there. Of all affiliates who were on the trip to Vegas, I was by far the oldest! This is where I took my "statistics" on affiliates from. I was very proud to be able to get there and to share time with all the young Top Affiliates. I even gave out some tips... I did not believe it!

The best advice I gave, and I can give it to you too, is very simple. This is the one that most people do not want to hear: work hard and never give up. Well! I know that these principles apply to all companies but those are the ones that most newbies ignore or forget to apply.

Many beginners come super motivated and confident that they will earn millions quickly and easily. They read a couple of ebooks about Internet Marketing and they bought a $7 WSO and now they feel sufficiently equipped to conquer the world! Unfortunately, their illusions disappear as fast as their initial investment and then they give up.

Well! That being said, I will give you more tips, more specific to Internet Marketing.

• If you can afford it, find a coach. There are some on this forum but it is important to check their reputation. I was fortunate to have one of the best, William Souza, and I found him on this forum. I give you his name but I know he is very busy and he rarely takes new students. You can try to contact him or do your own research. William helped me a lot during the first weeks and his advices serve me today as well.

• Choose only one niche and only one source of traffic to begin with and concentrate all your efforts on this. When you have mastered enough your traffic source, start again with another.

• Do not change your mind constantly. Every day, new offers and new ideas appear. You can never know everything about Internet Marketing in record time. Instead, you will be so overwhelmed with information that you will get stuck!

• Do not get caught by the "magic" offers. Those selling miraculous solutions have realized that people in general are lazy and, for this reason, they get caught up in things that do not work. You will never earn $1,000 a day by installing a program and pressing "Enter"!

• Always have new goals. Visualize your future success until you really believe you will succeed but remember that magical thinking does not exist, you will succeed because you take action!

• Set aside time every day. Have you noticed that those who are always busy find time to act? Those who have never the time are doing nothing. They spend hours watching television series or playing video games but do not have the time to accomplish their dreams (if they have some, it also takes time to dream!). I have created hundreds of ads while working 9 hours a day at a full-time job and without neglecting my family obligations. I also volunteer in my community once a month. I even found a free hour every day to walk the dog!

Here are some tips that I use to find the time. First, I got into the habit of going to bed earlier and I get up an hour earlier than before. I wake up at 5:00 am, I look at my emails quickly and I work an hour. In the evening, I still work one or two hours on my ads and other projects.

Also I always keep a little notebook and a pencil on me. When I get an idea, I take notes. This way, I "work" even while walking my dog!

Finally, when I'm less motivated, I work in 30 minutes intervals. There are several small freeware alarm clock to notify you at the interval you choose. I use Pester, you can find it easily with Google. 30 minutes is spent quickly and often it's all it takes. After 30 minutes, I take a break for 4 or 5 minutes and I'm ready to work again for another half hour.

It is true that there is much money to be made on the Internet, and I can confirm that. If I managed to pull myself up at 55 years among the top affiliates, many people can do the same. All you need is a little discipline and... a lot of determination.

Today, I still have many projects and I plan to have several more days of $1,000 and more profit. My next goal is to win $5,000 in one day, and I will do it in 2013. I'll let you know if you want!

I wish you all the success you deserve.

Marc Greenville

          Things such as your marketing methods did you use. What advertising networks, article sites, etc . Did you do solo ads? If you did, then with who?

          Some things don't work, some niches are too saturated. Unless you show a helpfull roadmap, a formula to follow then all you have done is nothing more than get someone reved up like a over hyped landing page that delivers zero results.

          Sorry if this post stings, but it is the truth.
          Are you kidding?

          So, you want him to literally just hand you the things he did to get where he is... so you can just go in and steal and swipe them?

          I get you want more information, and maybe more "how to" but you're basically bashing a guy who has worked hard to get some success... and you're pissed because he won't share his exact formula?

          Why don't you call up Coca Cola and yell at them for not giving you their formula for Coke?

              It certainly will have an affect! not only would hordes of Warrior members but also an avalanche of organic traffic would copy the exact same strategy soon as this thread hits the 1 page of Google which would be within a couple of hours.

                  I understand your point of view and I respect that. By reading the title of this post, you have expected to have tips to achieve the same goal.

                  As I said at the beginning, this is my first post and my goal was to demonstrate that we can successfully make money on the Internet at any age and even if our native language is not English.

                  Many find my post inspiring and motivating and I'm happy because it was the objective. If for you it is air, it's different for 99% of others who have read it.

                  This post brought me to receive many PM and I'm glad I could help a few people this week.

                  The very positive response encourages me to write more posts and to work harder on a project I have in mind for several years and which, I hope, will help as many people as possible to achieve their goals.

                  Say I will wear more attention to the title of my next post.

                  No hard feelings and I sincerely wish you all the success you deserve.

                  What you are talking about is SEO, that is for Organics and everyone has to follow the same rules or get slapped by Google. Those strategies are well known, documented and free.


                  [quote}Those are not marketing strategies, they are things you did or used!

                  Maybe you can school me in what a marketing strategy is. I look at it as different forms or routes to market (ie PPC, Forum Posting, Article Marketing, Blog Commenting, Social Media Marketing,Video Marketing, Classified postings, etc,etc.)



                  I already addressed this. If the solution is not viable, then all the inspiration and motivation in the world will not put money in your pocket.

                  The only exception to this are those that pray on peoples emotions.


                  Now I am happy the OP had a good day.

                  I was generalizing the post types and there are many here on WF. If I created a post "This is how I made 5,000 dollars in a Month" and give tips, but no actual solution wouldn't you be a bit put off?

                  Now weather the OP actually shares his method is up to him. That's his right. Keep it to himself, share it, sell it or whatever, but when you put statements
                  like that in a title, people have the expectation to learn something definitive. That is what I am pointing out, not just this post, but all that fall into this type of category.

                  Post like these are like quckley grabbing a bag of chips, opening it and finding out most of what is inside is air.

                  You clearly don't understand the post.

                  Marc's idea was to show how he had his 1st $1K day in terms of attitude, organization and mindset. He didn't create this thread to teach a method, but to inspire people.

                  The OP doesn't have the obligation to share his system or campaign here. And more than that, what he shared is way more important than a method that, as you said, can be found on a free report.

                    I 100% agree with you. Way too many people want handouts when it comes to the whole making money online niche. They want to be told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. They want you to lead them to water, then scoop the water out of the river for them and feed it to them.

                    I find this extremely ironic because the major appeal of making money online is becoming independent and not having to be told what to do by someone else.

                    No piece of information is never enough. If you tell someone you made $1k by doing CPA in the dating niche, they ask you specifically what offers you promote, what network you use, a link to your landing page, and everything else. Basically, they just want to completely replicate your method without actually learning how to do anything.

                  That is traffic. Marketing encompasses way more. Look up the definition if you want to know. Stop being lazy.

                  Actually, he gave you a blueprint on how to work. To me, that is much more valuable compared to a stupid post about hiring a fiver to do a webpage, upload page and put classified ad on craigslist promoting said web page.


                  Just because you want hand holding doesn't negate that he posted something actionable.


                  I find people who want someone to post step by step are the ones not suited for this business. This business is about finding solutions to problems, not waiting for people to guide them by hand.

          The sting will go away when he cashes his next check. I really don't see any reason for him to do that. The fact that he took time to post to motivate those who could use a positive statement is most appreciated by me personally and it seems others as well.

          I agree with you to a certain extent... There are a lot of people here who post these motivational type threads just to get sig exposure or to try and portray to the rest of us that they are 'killing it' with internet marketing when actually they haven't made a dime. But in my opinion, this guy seems legit and I think there is nothing wrong with him trying to motivate and inspire others by sharing his story.

          Yeah sure, he hasn't shared his exact blueprint for how he made this happen, but why should he have to? This forum is full of different methods and blueprints for making money online but it does take some initiative and creativity on YOUR part to build a successful business for YOURSELF. If you really want to know how he done it, then why don't you contact him via PM and pay him for his knowledge and ask him to teach you. If you can't afford a coach then keep grinding away until you find something that works for YOU. There are plenty of people here who have made money without spending money. It sounds like this guy has been working his ass off over the last 3 months, are you doing the same?

          Sorry if this post stings, but it is the truth.

          To the OP, well done sir. Congratulations on your success! Some people have spent 3 years online and haven't come close to what you have accomplished. For you to be making that kind of money in only 3 months shows that you have the business acumen needed to be successful in this game. Just remember people, IM isn't for everybody. Some people have what it takes, some people don't

            I obviously did my best to help you and put you in the right path, but you are a very talented guy who can always think outside the box and come up with new solutions for old problems, and I have no doubt that this skill was very important for you to succeed.

            I am very proud to be part os this story and I am sure that you still have great things to do i your IM career!


            @Victor Chang

            Good points, but this is not the case here. Marc is a real guy and everything he said is 100% true. He has been successful with many networks and even won a contest last year with one of the most famous companies in this industry.

            There are success stories in the IM world, real ones, and this is a perfect example.


            Marc is a real IMer today and his story should bump the motivation of the ones who are still struggling to get results, because despite of the countless pitfalls in this industry, there really is money to be made and he is the living proof of that.

    First, English is not my first language and I feared I would not be properly understood, but I was told that my English is very understandable.

    Secondly, I did not want to appear to brag by talking about my success. Then I thought that my goal was not to show me better than I am, but to help those who need motivation.

    Finally, I hesitated to make this testimony because I was not sure that anyone would be interested.

    Now that you are warned, let me share with you some of my experience. I only hope that it will interest you, motivate you ... and that you will understand what I am saying!

    I appeal especially to newbies but also to those who doubt the potential of Internet marketing.

    Over time, I realized that the majority of those who earn money (or who try to earn money) online are young guys, as most of them are under 30. There are very few women who are interested in this business and I do not think there's a lot of guys that are over 40. I do not found this information on a comprehensive study, but from my personal experience.

    I became an affiliate a little over a year ago and I had my first $1,000 profit day three months after I started at the age of... 55 years. As you can see, I am not a typical example of an affiliate!

    I was addicted to this business as soon as I managed to win $10 in one day. That day, I realized that if I could earn $10 in a day, I could earn $20, $50, $100 and more. I set goals and as soon as I was reaching one, I aimed a little higher.

    One of the networks I worked with had a contest. The prize was a trip to Las Vegas. To win, I just had to be among the top 10, just that! This was my biggest goal last year. I dove in without thinking too much and I got there. Of all affiliates who were on the trip to Vegas, I was by far the oldest! This is where I took my "statistics" on affiliates from. I was very proud to be able to get there and to share time with all the young Top Affiliates. I even gave out some tips... I did not believe it!

    The best advice I gave, and I can give it to you too, is very simple. This is the one that most people do not want to hear: work hard and never give up. Well! I know that these principles apply to all companies but those are the ones that most newbies ignore or forget to apply.

    Many beginners come super motivated and confident that they will earn millions quickly and easily. They read a couple of ebooks about Internet Marketing and they bought a $7 WSO and now they feel sufficiently equipped to conquer the world! Unfortunately, their illusions disappear as fast as their initial investment and then they give up.

    Well! That being said, I will give you more tips, more specific to Internet Marketing.

    • If you can afford it, find a coach. There are some on this forum but it is important to check their reputation. I was fortunate to have one of the best, William Souza, and I found him on this forum. I give you his name but I know he is very busy and he rarely takes new students. You can try to contact him or do your own research. William helped me a lot during the first weeks and his advices serve me today as well.

    • Choose only one niche and only one source of traffic to begin with and concentrate all your efforts on this. When you have mastered enough your traffic source, start again with another.

    • Do not change your mind constantly. Every day, new offers and new ideas appear. You can never know everything about Internet Marketing in record time. Instead, you will be so overwhelmed with information that you will get stuck!

    • Do not get caught by the "magic" offers. Those selling miraculous solutions have realized that people in general are lazy and, for this reason, they get caught up in things that do not work. You will never earn $1,000 a day by installing a program and pressing "Enter"!

    • Always have new goals. Visualize your future success until you really believe you will succeed but remember that magical thinking does not exist, you will succeed because you take action!

    • Set aside time every day. Have you noticed that those who are always busy find time to act? Those who have never the time are doing nothing. They spend hours watching television series or playing video games but do not have the time to accomplish their dreams (if they have some, it also takes time to dream!). I have created hundreds of ads while working 9 hours a day at a full-time job and without neglecting my family obligations. I also volunteer in my community once a month. I even found a free hour every day to walk the dog!

    Here are some tips that I use to find the time. First, I got into the habit of going to bed earlier and I get up an hour earlier than before. I wake up at 5:00 am, I look at my emails quickly and I work an hour. In the evening, I still work one or two hours on my ads and other projects.

    Also I always keep a little notebook and a pencil on me. When I get an idea, I take notes. This way, I "work" even while walking my dog!

    Finally, when I'm less motivated, I work in 30 minutes intervals. There are several small freeware alarm clock to notify you at the interval you choose. I use Pester, you can find it easily with Google. 30 minutes is spent quickly and often it's all it takes. After 30 minutes, I take a break for 4 or 5 minutes and I'm ready to work again for another half hour.

    It is true that there is much money to be made on the Internet, and I can confirm that. If I managed to pull myself up at 55 years among the top affiliates, many people can do the same. All you need is a little discipline and... a lot of determination.

    Today, I still have many projects and I plan to have several more days of $1,000 and more profit. My next goal is to win $5,000 in one day, and I will do it in 2013. I'll let you know if you want!

    I wish you all the success you deserve.

    Marc Greenville

    Congratulations!! Excellent performance and good model to be followed by newbies.

    Excellent post Marc, I'm glad you took the time and had the courage to post! I agree with you on several of your points especially on sticking to one niche and traffic method. I spent way too much time chasing after different niches/programs and ways of driving traffic that I never became good at anything. When I decided to put my focus into one niche and master one traffic method I started seeing success in this business.

          Another what?.. Sorry, I do not understand what you mean nor what you imagine.

          I was touched by all the messages I received and by the good comments on my first post and I have the desire to do something for these people, some of whom are in very difficult situations.

          If my post has been motivating for many, for me it's their messages that motivate me and push me to continue a project that could be a solution for many. Why is it wrong to say that after reading all these PM I want more than ever work harder on a project?

    Nice story.

    The reality of this business is if you work hard enough, long
    enough and smart enough you'll start making money.

    Your age and background really aren't important.

    The successful internet marketers have all kinds of different
    backgrounds, personalities and ages.

    The common denominator is working their tales off for a
    significant period of time and paying attention to what's working
    and what's not so they can improve on the action they take
    and the results they're getting.

    You're a great example of that.

    Kindest regards,
    Andrew Cavanagh

    I remember clear as day over four years ago having my first $450 day online. I remember logging into my account and seeing the money and the instant rush or adrenaline. I never slowed down since.

    This industry and the people involved has help transform my life. I love where I am and how I think. It's help and is helping me do things differently and for the better.

    My biggest advice for those dying to learn the secret to this trade is find a couple of mentors of successful people both in personal development and your career of IM and learn to take your lives to the next level. Its amazing when you do this...

    Awesome job by the way on your first $1,000 online and I feel you speak excellent english.

    Thank you sir for sharing your story! I think most people can't bear to get traffic from just once source. After all, why settle, right? But there's good logic here. It's focusing all you energy on one thing and mastering how that things works. It's trying to see which methods work, or in the case of Facebook, which types of posts get the most click through, and so on.

    If it is PPC then I too gave up on SEO and just went to where the traffic already is - Facebook Ads!

    I'm doing well but haven't hit my goal of consistent $1000/days.

      Thank you! Facebook is definitely a great traffic source but you must be careful as an affiliate, they are not so loved!

      I suggest you aim for foreign countries. United States and England are saturated markets and ads cost is much more expensive. Central European countries are more affordable and it's a great market.

      Good luck!

    Congratulations Marc. You deserve the success as you must have worked very hard to get to that level. You truly are an inspiration to us as there are so many struggling warriors here who are demoralized, suffering from info overload and piling up unlimited WSO's without taking action. It's great to be successful but you also have that rare quality of being down to Earth and helping others. That's the sign of a true noble warrior.

    • Choose only one niche and only one source of traffic to begin with and concentrate all your efforts on this. When you have mastered enough your traffic source, start again with another.

    I find this very appealing to me... and I am motivated to laser focus on this piece of advise and make things work for me.

      Great thread. It's meant to inspire not to inform. On this forum lack of information is not the problem. Lack of motivation, accountability and the will and determination to take focused and sustained action consistently over an extended time period is the problem. Mentoring and coaching does just that. That is more of an advantage for many people over another ebook or WSO.

      I never said that I had earned $1,000 a day with a website. You can be successful with a website or blog but also with other traffic sources like Google, Bing Ads, Facebook or Media Buying.

      My message is to say that it is possible to earn money online and if I have been able to do it at my age and without speaking English very well, many people can succeed too.

          I earned up to $ 1,000 a day selling affiliate products (CPA). Honestly, there is not much impressive when you see some gurus claim that they earn $50K or more per day. It seems incredible, but I'm sure it is possible. When you find a winning campaign and you can increase your budget, everything is possible.

    great story, congratulations to you and wish I will get there some days (I'm 50 so have a few years left).

    Actually funny you mentioned your age as I think that it's actually a benefit in IM to be a bit older due to the fact that we have more patience, more experience and due to prior work can maybe organize our self better.

    On the other hand some fear the new technologies - just don't as all can be learned.

    Now let me get used to wake up at 5 AM :-) , guess that's not going to happen as I'm a night person and usually go to sleep at 3 - 4 AM.

      It's funny you mention that because, believe it or not, I was just thinking the same thing about a bit older people. Without generalizing, it is true that when you're younger you want to have faster results without too much effort. When working for several years, the hard work does not scare us.

      Thank you and good luck to reach your goals.

    Well Marc, first let me say thank you for your post and congratulations on your accomplishment! You're post would not allow me to do what I usually do, which is just lurk and read WF without commenting. :rolleyes: There's so much useful information here from wonderful people such as yourself that I'm usually quite happy to just be a sponge and soak it all in. lol So this is only my second actual post.

    As I said before thank you for your post, which was clearly intended to be a positive contribution to this community and to help motivate and give general direction and inspiration to others. Having turned 53 myself a few weeks ago and being at the beginning of my IM education I can say, at least for me, your post was very successful at accomplishing those goals! From the majority of comments posted, it seems most agree with me on that. As for those who responded in a less positive light, please do not allow them to deter you from sharing more posts on WF. I read a lot of posts and it quickly becomes apparent that many of our fellow WF members feel angry or upset about not having achieved their dreams through IM as of yet. Many no doubt have spent money on empty promises of overnight push button success if they would only send X amount of dollars for the newest "secret", only to discover all pipe dreams are made of smoke.They may be in desperate financial situations or have other pressures in their lives which have left them bitter and skeptical of others. This in no way is a reflection on you or your intentions to help others. It's only a reflection of their hurt and pain at the moment they are writing. If they stick with it, they will soon see the wisdom and correctness of the advice you posted. The caliber of your motivation is clearly displayed in your response to one of these comments. Positive all the way!

    So in conclusion please keep posting and do let us know when you reach that first 5K day, so we can share in your celebration. BTW I agree with those who say your English is just fine. No problem understanding you whatsoever. Take care.

      Sir,

      Your message gave me great emotions. I am honored because this is only the second time that you write on this forum.

      Regarding the less good comments, I believe that there are only two. I do not worry at all. I am a real person and I do things my way. If I try to please everybody, I will displease everyone. If I put my focus on those who are disappointed by my text, I will insult 99% of members who loved and understood my message. I know that my intentions are good then I do not care too much with those who can doubt it. I accept all the comments and I understand that there may be people who are disappointed especially if they expected to have some miraculous tips. Nevertheless, I gave most of my "secret".

      My first post is online since a week today and I'm impressed. This forum is even better than I thought! I did not expect to have much reaction and receive many messages.

      I admit, I have a project in mind for a long time but as for this post, I did not bring myself to do it. Maybe I was not quite convinced? Maybe subconsciously that's what prompted me to write this text? I do not know but I know that these are the comments and especially the messages I received that have convinced me that I should go ahead with this project.

      For this woman from India so desperate with an invalid husband and three children, for this father from England struggling to make ends meet and to all others who sent personal messages to ask me advice, I want to do something. I am well placed to understand those who are now where I was yesterday. I had some success because I had no choice, surrender was not an option. I failed several times, but each failure is a step towards success. I know I will fail again, if it was that easy, everyone would earn money on the Internet. I'm not one of those gurus who make millions online, but I know I can help people to achieve their goals.

      Thank you very much for your kind words and thank you for encouraging me to write again. I'll do in the next few days and this time I will try to be more specific in the title and in the text. I'll probably even offer a case study, which should appeal to as much members!

    Awesome story, I always love reading stories about people who have worked hard to achieve their goals. I am working daily towards my goals everyday.

    It is hard work, but I know that as long as I don't quit, I will reach them. I used to be one of those people who would always buying the next shiny object in hopes of making my online journey easier.

    There is not such thing as easier. It takes hard work but the great thing is that if you follow a plan, you will have success.

    Here's to your $5,000 day, I know you will reach it.

    As one of the "over 40" guys that you talk about this is very inspiring. Worse for me I started with no computer skills at all. Things are moving along for me now but still no where near the 1k a day level yet but getting there.

    I like how you explain where you find the time. I spend a lot of time in hotel rooms for my day job so this affords me a few hours a week with no distractions and I get a hour or two on most weekend mornings before the rest of the family gets up.

    Keep up the good work and let us know when you hit the 5k a day mark!

    With no proofs to your income & nothing pointing towards your way of achieving $1000 a day, Your post surely looks like free advertising campaign run for " William Souza " I know his inbox must be full by now.

      I have already responded to you by sending a PM, but for all others who need proof to believeve, HERE IS A LINK to a screenshot of October 13, 2012, a Saturday, from only one network, it was my first $1K+ day.

      With my post, I wanted to motivate and encourage people and tell them that it is possible to achieve their goals at any age and even if English is not their native language. I have a lot of respect for William Souza but my goal was not to find clients for him, he already has more than he can accept.

      With a positive attitude, determination and hard work you will have the same results and I hope you will. There are no insurmountable barriers, except for the skeptics.

      Good luck!

    This is just the most inspiring and motivating post or thread here in the forum that I have encountered today. Thank you for your generosity of sharing this. You have no idea how many people out there are encouraged upon reading your testimony.
