Fastest Way to $100-200+ a Day?
Fastest & Cheapest way to just get off the ground?

 12:55 am on Jun 4, 2004 (gmt 0)

While I have strong ambitions to make a lot of money online and so have been spending the last few weeks mostly gathering information and resources trying to learn how best to go about it and what is the most valuable aspects and ideas for spending time and money on. That is all great because I am thinking long term and am going carefully because I don't have investment money to experiment with things.

I need to start just getting some money in so I can pay my expensive rent each month without constantly worrying about if I am going to make enough for rent the next month or have to move. And hopefully start getting enough to re-invest back into marketing and building.

Well I have been reading excellent advice on here about what the most profitable niches and ways of marketing are and what things are not worth it because they don't have the same full potential as the others.

Although the most profitable niches sound like they cost the most to get started with and perhaps take more time. People here talking about investing thousands of dollars into them to get them going. I'm not afraid of risks. I just don't have money to invest like that. At least not yet.

So, I don't care about which ways are not long-term the highest potential and don't have the potential to ever make more then a measly 1-2 hundred dollars a day. Because if there is something like that that doesn't have long-term potential or high earning potential but has the benefits of being fast and cheap in making at a min. $100 a day I am interested. So I can know that my rent will be covered and have some extra for investing in the more profitible ventures.

I'm very new to all of this. But if anyone knows what kind of thing could produce that type of profit right away please share.

I guess if something is producing a return on investment then it doesn't really matter what the investment costs because you are getting it back. The problem is that I can't afford the delay in that. If I spend $2 a click at Google promoting something and it makes me a profit back I am still paying Google hundreds of dollars straight from my bank account way before I receive a check from the Affiliate program to cover those costs. Which is sometimes an entire month after the billing cycle that they even begin mailing them out. So something that paid quickly (like to Paypal) would be perferable.

I have been doing some of my own artistic service/product sites as well but they have not been doing all that well. Very sporadic sales. I need something consistant. I tried ebay too which I am completely sick of. I'll get buyers for my art the first time I put anything new up but as soon as I relist anything that has already sold- zero buyers. It's almost like it is only the same people looking at the art stuff and not a steady stream of new buyers.

Anyways. If there is not any answers to this or ideas I understand. It's kind of a stupid question. But maybe others here are interested in this topic too? The new people that don't have a lot of cash. I wish I had gotten into this stuff when I had plenty of cash and plenty of time, instead of wasting both of those things for years...

I've never used Clickbank before, but it would appear that those are revenue / sales numbers and not commission numbers. The topic for the thread is commissions, so let's compare apples to apples, shall we?


 5:27 am on Jul 18, 2004 (gmt 0)

Give the guy a break. It is entirely possible for someone to earn that kind of money.

IMHO, it is nothing wrong showing proof. Hey, its an inspiration to people like me!

Take it easy, guys :)

..no, those are nett commissions due to the affiliate. On the assumption that it is not doctored, it is surely an inspiration for me ... and others here, I guess.


 5:50 am on Jul 18, 2004 (gmt 0)

Actually, I have seen those numbers before as well, but from a website of an affiliate selling some service (can't remember which)...Could they be fabricated, maybe...but if not, it's nice to see what the possibilities are in this business.

Did a little research.. The guy who has this on his site has been doing this for the past 21 years or so, since '93.. Perhaps I may shoot him an email to hopefully join this forum, possibly help others along in the process. I've seen that he has many, many sites, about 30 or so. Not too bad for about 30 minutes of boredom.


 6:37 am on Jul 18, 2004 (gmt 0)

Yeah, if indeed it's legit, it would be nice to get some more input in here.


 6:40 am on Jul 18, 2004 (gmt 0)

damn! It's been 21 yrs since '93? I've been online tooooo toooo long. Time has just flown by! : )

Hee Hee. Seriously though, clickbank only shows the affiliates their own commissions. Not the sale price. Pay periods are also every 2 weeks. So the total $ for 2 pay periods is the total net for a month. Minus advertising and other business expenses outside of clickbank. I've tested a few of there products and they had decent conversions at first. But then they die. It is hit and miss. Ever since they embraced 180Solutions as an affiliate! There is nothing secure about the way they have there tracking set up and there links. Of course that screenshot shown could be of a merchants earnings and not an affiliates. Or both. I've heard of several affiliates with them making 30-40k a month just with them. Who knows what other networks and independant programs they also get checks from. But they have too many parasites.

BTW- I started the $100/day question as a MINIMUM to be able to stay in the biz without an outside job. Certainly not as a MAXIUM. What kind of fool would put a limit on there success? What am I going to send anything over 6k a month back to the network? The sky's the limit as they say!

Hahaha, whoops. I told ya I was bored, but failed to mention that it was about 1 in the morning, or close to it.

Programmers hours.. ;-)

I am too busy making money to waste time with you so go back to your dream $100 a day deals if you can even manage that.

I am hoping that one day I may be able to move over to brand name bologna...maybe if I buy that guy's ebook...

ask anyone with a brain if there is anything wrong with backing up your stories and claims with actual facts.

Why would one need stories and claims unless they are hyping junk?

Oh mfishy, just ignore the troll, eh? >;->

He was rude without provocation, didn't take the time to read any of your previous posts or take note of your post count and most tellingly, didn't even read AW_Learner's first post (or even the subtitle of the entire thread!) where it was fairly clearly indicated that $100-200 a day is just a sum to get off the ground and have a little bit to reinvest.

Anyone can storm into a thread and start shouting about how much money they make and how anybody who makes less is a loser, but really, that kind of person betrays their lack of self-assuredness, by so obviously needing to boost themselves higher than others around them (if not on their own merit, then by attempting to push others down).

And since when is a .gif proof of anything? >;->

Yes they sure do! And instead of kicking them out all they say is that they will make sure that they don't continue to overwrite other affiliate's cookies (yeah right, that's the only way they market).

I don't think that there commisions would be that low. They are a multi-million dollar company. Just got another $40 million investment. They probably make more like a over a few hundred thousand a month from them. Which would be a good reason why Clickbank would want to keep them around. Just guessing. I have no idea really how much they make from them.

I found out about this through another forum for clickbank. I don't think that I am allowed to post any links to other forums on here so if you are interested in the links just sticky me.

Random2, welcome to webmasterworld, great to have you on board with your highly constructive and friendly, open approach. You ever read "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie?

You've sure made me and some of the other folk around here feel small with your authoritative posts - $17,000 a month? No way man, that's just not possible!

MA, are you saying it is not possible to earn such money with Clickbank? Because I know it is definitely possible to earn this amount ONLINE -- according to your post in the $1,000/day thread ;)

Seems CB has a lot of problems. I never had any success with them, not sure about others.


 6:45 pm on Jul 19, 2004 (gmt 0)

ummmm, what just happened?

Would you guys slamming this member go back and read his first post? I don't see anything that calls for the way he was treated.

Just because he isn't bowing down to the alpha-male-wannabe chest beaters and stroking your egos in threads and stickymail does not give you the right to react this way. The arrogance of late is growing tiresome, and is not in the spirit of this board.

If you don't have something constructive to say, all you can do is slam on someone, don't post. How hard is that?

I think this thread has outlived its usefulness.
