How I Went From $6 Profit/day to $10,000 Profit/day in 1 Month

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!

    You got that last statement a bit backwards. As I recall I was the one doing all the work. It’s too bad I can’t fire you.

  2. You are a loser Paul
    January 1, 2009

    Paul quit with the link bait shit. You had this post written even before you wrote that sob story about the $200 profit month. This BS “’ll do my best to share as many of the reasons why I was able to do this” is worthless this whole post is fluff.

    Just close down your blog now. You are a 20 year old blowhard.

    Linkbait for what reason?

  10. January 1, 2009

    Hmm…I’m going to guess “Craigslist”…lol.

  11. January 1, 2009

    HaHa that was a good try to get it out of him..

    Way to go man, thanks for the post

    Yahoo, MySpace, Facebook, one of those probably.

  15. January 1, 2009

    You title for this post is “How I went from $6 Profit/day to $10,000…”, yet you don’t really say much in your post about it.

    “I just want to prove to everybody out there that it’s completely possible to go from the bottom to the top, and FAST.” — you proved nothing, I can come up with blog posts and claim stuff too, it don’t mean it’s true though

    lmao. i love the noobs that think only the latest trend is profitable. there is lots of opportunity outside of weightloss & even outside of free trial-type offers, just try using your brain.

    It would be nice if you actually shared some knowledge in this post for how you increased your earnings.

  18. crestind
    January 1, 2009

    Do worse around the holidays? Sounds like weight loss products to me.

  19. January 1, 2009

    If it’s not true, don’t believe a word I say and don’t take my advice. Pretty simple.

  20. January 1, 2009

    What do you want to know?

  21. January 1, 2009


    It would appear as though you are showing your age.

    There is absolutely no way in Hell that you are in the neighborhood of 37 million dollars a year profit. I know it, you know it, and your readers know it.

    If that were true I can see an image of you only having one single leg on your body and no other limbs.

    (That is because Jay, David and Oprah would have pulled your other three appendages completely off.)

    You should have sved this post for next April one.

    You got your maths wrong. It’s not $37m, its more in the region of $3.7m and that is completely achievable.

    I guess when you’re trying to make money from blogging RIch, anything more than a couple hundred dollars a day looks impossible.Good luck with that.

  24. January 1, 2009

    Ah what’s a few 30 million or so. LOL

  25. January 1, 2009


    When did I say I was making $37 million a year? All I said was right now I’m making $10k profit/day. I have NO idea how long it will last, and how high/low it will spike.

    I know guys who have made $2 million a week on weight loss crap (which is not what I’m promoting), that’s over $100 million/year according to you. Their limbs are completely in-tact.

  26. January 1, 2009

    Rich, take a math class, it’s $3.6 Mil or so. And you never equate $10k a day to a yearly income. Cuz 99% of the time it isn’t going to last longer than a few months tops.

    The problem with the post is that there is no information in it other than “Hey guys I’m making $10k a day now!” Actually, this entire blog post could have been a one-line tweet.

  27. January 1, 2009

    That’s impressive stuff. It’s also refeshing to see that it spikes and you accept this fact. G slaps are a fact of life, if your not getting them then you are not pushing hard enough. Every vertical has it’s day/week/month and being there right place, right promotion, right price is the name of the game, it’s old school traditional marketing with a 2.0 spin.

    These posts are great but what about the “how”? You don’t have to reveal the niche or the traffic source but it would be a bit more valuable if you could post the steps that you used to scale.

    “After I perfected the offer and got it doing $500 a day I…….until it was doing $10k a day”

    That’s pretty impressive over that short a period of time.

    January 1, 2009

    Suurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeee ya did.

    I’m doing $100,000,000 profit per day right now.

    Drugs are bad mmmkay?

  30. January 1, 2009

    good job Paul… i dun need the how… it was just motivating enough for me to work even harder and that’s enough..

    $10k a day… u make what i make in a month… Damn…

  31. ben
    January 1, 2009

    I don’t see why this seems impossible to a lot of you. If you can turn $100 worth of traffic into $200 in revenue per day, then if the niche is big enough you can turn $10k into $20k per day.

    Geez, I wouldn’t mind knowing what kind of product/service earns you that!

  33. January 1, 2009

    Man theres a nice little balance of support & hate. I’ll play the support side, I really like this post, it’s my resolution and I’m sure its everyone elses to get my ass in gear with marketing. I’ll be working hard and look forward to my posts on the same subject matter.

    Congrats !

    Nice post to start off the New Year. Does your employee read your blog? If so… awkward for him. =)

    Probably not the best way for him to start 2009. Time will tell, I guess.

    I love hearing all these people attempt to tear you down after you share such good information. I sense a bit of jealousy. Don’t rip on Paul just cause he’s the man.

    are you stupid?

    just because someone shows an opposing view to someone else, makes them jealous of that person?

    great thinking, real cockmuncher type

  39. January 2, 2009

    Nice work paul.

  40. January 2, 2009

    The vitriolic comments are only showing pure jealousy and utter weakness. The minute someone shows a vulnerability, then some schmuck takes an opportunity and bashes them.

    Gotta love the jealousy! Keep kicking ass Paul!

    It seems there are a lot of jealous people reading your blog. I’m sure you have lots of experience with negative comments like this, ignore them – you sound like you’re doing well and I’m giving a HUGE thumbs up to you all the way from Liverpool, England. I too am a young lad, and have had recent success with affiliate marketing.

    In fact, I’m flying over to Affiliate Summit in Vegas next week… I’d like to shake your hand and say hello! Drop me a mail if you can.


  42. January 2, 2009

    Wow that is truly amazing how you made so much money in a short period of time by just working hard and stay focused. That goes to show you, that hard work really pays off.

    January 2, 2009

    Wow so many haters in here…

    Anyway I know it’s possible to earn $10k a day but I hardly think it’s possible to maintain this over a long period of time.

    That said if you don’t know how to scale a campaign yet, go read the older posts, hell there are thousands of posts from other affiliate marketing blogs too.

  44. January 2, 2009

    Screenshots don’t offer proof, they offer those who wanted it a reason to say “Nice Photoshop skills.”

  45. Matt D
    January 2, 2009

    Stephane, never say never. In this case, never limit yourself. It is possible to earn a whole lot more than 10k profit a day over a long period. Trust me on this one!!!!

    Realistically i never expect actual tips and how to’s or anything real meaty, since ive read about affiliate marketing and PPC ive read on forums, blogs etc and theres some good advice, some good info on landing pages on copywriting blogs etc.

    Coming to a blog for any real meat is not a good idea, i guess its a place to talk about what your involved in, and i think theres only so many lists, articles, how to’s etc that you can put together before even the best of writers may run out of things to post about.

    The more your earning, the better things are and the more you will want to protect whatever you work with, i know i would.

    At least the most recent post is back on track to being affiliate related :) keep it affiliate related please.

    I dont want to know about girls, taxes or anything like that on an affiliate blog ;)

    $10,000/day is not unheard of by any means. I used to manage affiliates at a Top 500 internet retailer and we would see individual affiliates spike all the time to unheard of levels for that affiliate. Great post!

  49. January 2, 2009

    I hope your employee doesn’t read your blog…lol

  50. January 2, 2009

    BTW everyone hating and saying BS on making 10k a day…it’s not that hard at all if you work your ass off and stay ahead of the game…stop being lazy and bitching about other peoples success because your copied weight loss blog is sucking.
