>> speculate

Could be anything from household goods, bridesmaid dresses, gambling, travel, ebay, pills ...

>> personal experience

Pick any program that you know people like mfishy and gopi wont touch. :)

Work smart not hard.

Getting to $1000/day was a LOT easier then getting to $100/day

If I remember correctly, to get to $100 a day you were supposed to find a way to make $1/day, and repeat 100 times. One could extrapolate.

... I feel it is the other way around but I hope I'm wrong.

If the "100/200 a day" discussion can span 10 over pages, then this thread should be able to span 100+ pages?

By the way people were talking about getting $10,000 a day over at the warriors forum ;)

Good well finally we graduated beyond the $200/day limit. There is no limit really. What is the warrior forum?

It's easy to make a $1000 per day and more, but I'm not repeating all the stuff I already put in the other thread. Shall I add another zero and start another one?

Build more sites selling the same widgets as the test sites that made some $$. The trick is once you find an area that makes $$, put up more sites.

If you are in real competitive areas, then with great rankings you can get over 1K per day from just a few sites. However for most affiliates, the way to 1K per day is to make more sites in the areas that you know make $$.

Ok, with some degree of seriousness, here's what will
help you. Keep in mind that I'm suffering from an OD of cold medicine. :)

Fact: $1000/day is probably putting you in the top percentile of affiliates out here. Probably in the top 10-20% of the attendees at PubConf. (Did I scream HINT?)

Fact: I had posted some similar posts about eight months ago when I was considering quiting my day job and putting my personal security and son's college fund on the line. All of these responses sound very familiar ...

Fact: You're not in nursery school and no one here cares enough about your welfare and your income to give you their most profitable AM's phone number.

A few things you can do to help steer this discussion...

1) Research. To make a $1000 a day at an average commission of say 5% on the low end, you'd need to be selling $20K of product. At $10/lead you'd need to get 100 qualified leads. What sort of markets can get you these figures? What sort of traffic would you need? What sort of business plan would you need? Or, would you need them at all?

2) Investment. You will have to invest your time and money into this venture. $1000/day is not going to happen with you stopping by a cybercafe while going from your day job to the pub. Some people here may make it seem like it can, but for 99% of the rest of us, it takes a fair amount of hardwork.

How much time and money are you willing to invest?

3) Lateral thinking. If you're going to take an idea or a program that every one has tried here... what makes you think it will work for you? Do you have a unique spin on something?

4) Skills. Do you have the requisite skills? They typically involve design, coding, project management, negotiating with AMs, writing sales pitches, buying psychology, SEO .. the list goes on. You will need some basic skills to give you the edge.

What is your skillset?

Threads that got me started include

[webmasterworld.com...]
[webmasterworld.com...]
[webmasterworld.com...]

Read the older posts made by folks like dogboy, Go60Guy etc. (This is not an award ceremony ... but if I did forget your name, accept my apologies and be assured I'll buy you a drink sooner or later.)

I bet if you can write a 500 word summary to the library of this forum, you've figure out what it takes to unlock the $100-$1000/day income.

Finally, make an effort to network with the people who do this for a living. The chances are you'll never find a sucessfull affiliate in your peer group, so look at going to the next PubCon at the very minimum.

Ok.. time to take a nap.

I think the hardest work on my part is getting a close relation to the merchant. But I still only spend 2 and a half hours max per day on business.

Best way to make money full stop.

Use your unique combination of skills to leverage success from opportunities you conceive of in a way which wouldn't work for other people (because they don't have your skill combination).

Carve out your niche.

Consistently outclass anyone who tries to be a "me-too".

Nobody should be able to beat you in doing what you do the way you do it.

Getting to $1000/day was a LOT easier then getting to $100/day

That's really not surprising. $1000 is only ten times $100. >;->

By extrapolation, getting to $10,000 a day is just as easy ;)

Actually it really should get easier (up to the point where you've pretty much maxed out a particular niche/affiliate program) since you know what works, where to promote a site targeted at that niche etc.

If you were to spend $5,000 per day, you should easily make $15,000 per day. If you've optimized your biz correctly.

Hey,

Like Michael Anthony has stated several times, there is no "right" way. There is only the way that you like and that works for you.

getting to $1000/day was a LOT easier then getting to $100/day

I can totally see this. Once you can make $100 a day, you can make $1000 a day.

Most important thing... Never give up, and don't let people bring you down.

All the Best,

C.K.

I almost stickied you a few times, but decided not to. I imagine if you had a nickle for everytime you got stickied... well, you get the point.

Just for the record a lot of us value your posts.

wellzy

ps... you live near Virginia? I'd love to buy you a beer sometime. ;)

Here's a general of what I find....

If you want to NET $1000 a day then sell information (which includes affiliate programs)

If you're looking for bragging rights (which it seems many people get high on) go with product-based sites and you can GROSS $1000/day in no time

I have some product-based sites that I built when I was just getting going that didn't take long to get up their in volume, but the revenue from my information-based sites is cash & carry with hardly any operational cost and no COGS

IMHO

Just to clarify, I NET well over that sum daily and I get to keep it all.

Stickies are still welcome, as some of you know I'll never decline a reasonable request for help. And no, I don't live near Virginia, but one of the people on here will be flying to Scottsdale in October (I'm visiting my brother, who lives there, en route to Whistler for some snowboarding) to buy me a "thank you" beer. You are more than welcome to join him :)

You have someone who's going to fly all the way out there to buy you a beer? Whoa! ;-)
