Please note whether your response is actual profit or net sales.
Thanks to all who respond.
I would think that other webmasters would want to see a "snapshot" of what their peers are achieving online. After all, we all have this in common or you wouldnt be reading posts in this forum board.
Thanks to those that offer honest reports of income from their online ventures.
It began with loading more product in a relatively niche market within a huge industry. It then went to producing SEO that worked at getting a multitude of top of the first page search engine rankings. Work is not done, but I imagine it will begin to level out, since the company's infrastructure and management is lagging far behind the means to provide the product sold.
Some people own Walmarts, some own a chain of small stores and some have a burger stand outside of a Walmart!
Personally I'm in the middle group and happy to be there.
I've always believed a few people can make a happier business to work in than a huge corporation. Having spent 20+ years in huge corporations, I have seen the downside :(
On the web you can run a decent size operation with very low physical resources.
Our annual goal is to make $10 million per year net profit with less than 10 people. It is very achievable, easily managed, and just a bunch of family and friends running it.
If your question was an attempt to establish if the web is still viable......the answer is more today than ever before.
Numbers don't mean that much past a certain point of success. You might even discover that you only actually desire a limited amount of success :)
