I hate long titles, but I couldn’t really think of any other way to shorten it. At the beginning of December I wrote a post saying how I made only $186 profit in November. That’s about $6 profit per day. I listed the reasons why, and I also listed what I was going to do to completely turn it around. Was I joking?
Just a couple days ago profits on my campaigns hit $10,000/day. The offers I run are not seasonal, they actually do a lot worse around the holidays. It’s consistent as well, not 10k today and 500 tomorrow.
This didn’t happen over-night, it took some time, but in 1 month I increased my profit by 166566%! I’ll do my best to share as many of the reasons why I was able to do this :
Hard work. I had to just buckle down and choose not to be lazy and do some work. The next challenge is staying hard at work, as the more money you make, the easier it is to become lazy.
Play the hand I was dealt. Last month one of the big reasons I tanked was the breakup with my girlfriend. Was I able to overcome that, forget about it, and not think about it all month? Nope, I wasn’t. Trying to do something like that is completely impossible, something like that will take months. What I did realize is that all you can do is play the hand you were dealt. If you’re dealt what seems like a crappy hand, don’t cry about it. Man up, take what’s good from it, and play it out to the best of your ability. I had lost the relationship portion to my life which definitely sucks more than anything, but I realized what I had left, and what I had left was business. Instead of crying about what I lost, I learned to make the best of what I had.
Focused on 1 offer. Yep, I don’t have 10 campaigns making $1,000/day. I have 1 campaign making $10,000/day. I focused all my power and concentration on 1 thing, and it paid off. I’m still going to work on scaling what I have and getting that to $15-20k/day and ride that out as long as possible.
Focused on traffic that works. My last post was about some smaller traffic sources that simply weren’t converting. I got ripped on by a few people about it, but hey rip away. I have 2 huge sources of traffic. One is Google, and the other I’m not going to tell you :). Rather than try and fight to get the 10 other sources to all work, I just scaled and raped the two big ones that were working.
Focused on volume over conversion. I tested a few pages and some variations to find the best converting page and ads, but most of the work has just come from working on more volume. Right now the revenue is around $19,000 for $10,000 profit, so I’m happy enough with that. But with volume potential as high as it is, it’s more worth it to work on that. So every day is used making new ads, new campaigns, different pages, etc.
Those are the main reasons I can kind of give out without revealing too much.
I just want to prove to everybody out there that it’s completely possible to go from the bottom to the top, and FAST.
From a business perspective, last month was the worst month ever. This month was the best month ever. Affiliate marketing is all about roller coasters, I just have to make sure to stay at this peak as long as possible. Where do I go from here? I’m not changing a thing, I’m just going to scale scale scale. The first week of December I was happy when it was doing $700 profit/day. In a week or so it was up to $3k, then jumped in another week to $5k, then in about 3 days up to $10k. I’m just going to keep on churning out the traffic and hoping I don’t get slapped lol.
Oh and my employee did nothing to help me make the money, I did it all myself he did nothing. I’m probably going to just fire him.
Happy New Year!
