Income Report July 2015

Wow. Sorry I’m cutting this report so late. August has been a rough month. Numbers are down and I’ve been really driven to stay focused and make the business grow. We’ll talk more about that next month, but having a “bad” month is key for keeping one focused. Ok, so about July… The Goal is to have a $20k October from my affiliate sites. It’s going to be an impossible goal to hit. I like impossible goals. A Facebook Distraction I ran across a gentleman who offered to teach me Facebook ads for $1,000. And, I honestly believe that ad-buying is one of the “waves of the future”. His training has been awesome. Mostly because I don’t know the first thing about paid advertising. He started me at the very bottom: Market research. Lead magnets. Tripwires. A/B testing… And just went through every single step. I have yet to make a profit, but that isn’t my main focus right now. Right now I’m running a couple of facebook ad campaigns every week. This is where I learn. We all need a learning phase. Everyone wants to “make money”. But first we must LEARN how to make money. It’s cheaper than college, after all. So I hope that in the next 60-90 days I will have mastered his method and we will have a nice stream of income that is not dependent on Google. That’s the plan, anyhow. But that training ate up a couple of weeks, and many, many late nights as he stayed up with me until 1 am teaching me everything he knew. I’m really grateful, dude....

Income Report June 2015

These income reports are to inspire you on what is possible through an online business. In April, 2013 I left my job at a call center and launched on this incredible journey.  June was a real “nose-to-the-grindstone” month. Content Creation Systems Following the trip to Orlando last month, I dug in and worked on our content creation systems. Me and the virtual assistants managed to add 50 articles to one website, and 240 products (with descriptions!) to another new e-commerce style website. This is pretty remarkable when you consider that most of my income has only ever come from about 60 articles. If we can get these sites ranking, we have very likely just doubled that income. And what is even better  is the fact that we have some great systems in place. I hope to keep them running along at a lower level. Ideally, with these systems running on a part-time basis, we should be able to launch a new site about every 6 weeks.  That doesn’t sound like much, but when you calculate that each site should make about $5k per month, we’re literally looking at a million dollars in profit before I turn 34. I’ll take that. A Featured Blogger EmpireFlippers.com — a couple of guys who I greatly admire for their business-savvy and resilience — decided to do an “expert roundup”. I guess I’ve made it to “expert” now. It was an honor to be featured on the same page with the likes of Neil Patel and Nick Loper.

Income Report May 2015

These income reports are to inspire you on what is possible through an online business. In April, 2013 I left my job at a call center and launched on this incredible journey.  May started off with a roar. Some friends from Missouri (And Cubicle Houdini students) dropped by during their vacation. They were staying about 40 minutes away on another island, but drove into our neck of the woods for an afternoon. We checked out the Pensacola Lighthouse and the Blue Angels together, had some really crappy local barbecue and chatted business ideas. Since we had been here for 2 weeks, it was really nice to see a familiar face. Life Finally Normalizes. I think for the first time in 2015, our life feels “normal”. We finally got our SUV back on the 25th and is about as good as new following the accident last month((except for the new “clunk” when it goes over bumps, and the fact that is seems a lot harder to stop.). We’re now working on the “diminished value” request. This is a critical step that most people don’t do. You see, when a car has been in an accident, it is now worth less money then it would have been before the accident. People pull up the CarFax, see that it has had structural damage, was towed from the scene and had airbag deployment… and then they run screaming from your car like it was Bigfoot or something. Besides hurting your car’s feelings, this lowered valuation hurts your pocketbook. Every state (except Michicagan)  has laws to help the not-at-fault party reclaim this value. But most people...

Top 5 Ways To Make An Extra $50 Per Day From Home This Week

If you read my previous article about avoiding online business scams, you might be feeling quite disheartened right now.   So, I wanted to take a brief moment and discuss five opportunities that virtually anyone should be able to tap into to begin making extra money this week.   One of the first things you need to do when starting a business – such as Internet marketing – is you will need to  come up with some seed money.   Even an extra $50 can make a difference. But where could you get an extra $50? $100?   I often play a mental game with myself. It goes something like this: if there was a gun held to my head and I needed to come up with an extra thousand dollars by the end of the month, could I do it? How?     Here are some ideas that I would try. All of these are areas that I have either had success with in the past, or have personally known folks who have succeeded with them.   Check them out!   LeapForce At Home   Leapforce At Home makes it to the top of the list because they are one of the only online job opportunities I know of that lets you work from home, and actually treats their employees with some respect.   The job premise is simple, you perform Google searches that they provide and rate the quality of the results. In exchange, they pay about $12 per hour (with pay raises after certain quality metrics and length of tenure are met) You basicaly help Google...

Don’t Get Scammed! The 4 Business Principles That Will Always Keep You Safe

I actually started my Internet marketing journey by looking for ways to “make money from home”. In all honesty, making money online has been an obsession for me since I was about 15. I’ve tried so many of the “opportunities”. Weirdly enough, the same “opportunities” that were being pitched when I was a kid are still being pitched today. Oh, they’ve changed the titles, and added new testimonials. But they are basically the same thing that they were 22 years ago.         I’ve Split These Scams Into 3 Categories For You: The Time Stealers     Something that blows my mind is how little we Americans value our time.   Let me demonstrate: yesterday was National Doughnut Day (Which, ironically is the day before the anniversary of D-Day). I made the mistake of stopping by Krispy Kreme.       There were people waiting 20 minutes for a free doughnut.     Assuming that their most expensive doughnut – with tax – costs $ 1.50, these rabid donut fans were exchanging 20 minutes of their time for a buck-fifty.   That’s $4.50 per hour. Now, tell me, who in their right mind would agree to work for $4.50 per hour? And I see folks do this all the time — in fact I’ve done it. We are so anxious to grasp at any little thing that promises us some sort of future, that we are willing to trade our time – the most precious thing we have – for minuscule amounts of money or pleasure. And these opportunity-sellers know that. They know they can get us...
