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!

    Nice job man congrats on getting back on track.

    WOW! Seems to be appropriate. Not just at the level and speed of your success but at the number of nay-sayers. Good Luck to you.

    Congratulations, but I still think you should diversify your campaigns. I’d rather have 10 offers doing $1000/day than 1 campaign doing $10,000/day. That way if one offer tanks I’m still making money while looking for a replacement.

    The “advice” is to open your dumbass mind, he’s saying it’s not “hard” to make $100,000 a month. It’s about using a system that works and repeating the process of scaling the traffic, The hard part it sitting their doing the work.

    Paul ISN’T SELLING ANY THING…so thank him for even speaking about his experiences, because he risks leaking info that will cut into his profits.

    Thanks Paul for posting, your post are very much apprecitated

  9. January 9, 2009

    Which is why you make the money while you can as in affiliate marketing there are only a few offers that go on for years and that will be around for a long time. but hit the hot short ones and take the quick buck.. the key is diversifying enough so you dont have huge highs and huge lows…

  10. January 10, 2009

    The best thing of this article I though is you are not selling a thing here. If that happen, I thing your reader will think something else about your statement. What ever it is, believe or not in your earning, I still believe in your “Focused on volume over conversion” and your other theory is still useful for me

  11. January 11, 2009

    Affiliate Nobody, you may have a point about diversifying the campaigns. However, your comment reminds me of something Warren Buffett said: “Put all your eggs in the one basket and WATCH THAT BASKET.” Maybe it’s better to have one campaign and watch that campaign closely.

  12. January 11, 2009

    Well that title certainly got my attention just when I’m undertaking ways to increase my profits.

    You should write a book akin to Mastering Search Advertising: How the Top 3% of Search Advertisers Dominate Google AdWords, either hard-copy or ebook — and spill a little more of your secrets (not everything) to those of us who are willing to pay for it.

    And include screenshots of the $10k profit.

    That will build your credibility and give you even more money from another source, in case the $10k profit goes bust.

    Sorry ’bout the break up with your girlfriend. Life gets better…

    In Jan. Everyone wants to “get fit” for the new years. My sales jump 300% for a brief period in Jan then die back down.

    Congrats Dude! That is always very motivational to read ! Keep up the good work !

    @Busby SEO said

    …”The best thing of this article I though is you are not selling a thing here”..

    You are terribly WRONG. This is how Pauk gets better payouts from CPA Networks. Think about this. If I said I was making $10K per day profit on ONE offer than as an affiliate manager you would scramble to contact Paul to try to earn his business by making him exclusive deals or increasing payouts. As a matter of fact if I was an affiliate manager and knew darn well Paul or other affiliates were doing $2K per day I would send him a whore once per month to keep him focused:)

  18. January 14, 2009

    I have only just recently come across this site and I, too, find it hard to believe the figures quoted. That is NOT to say it can’t be done, just that I find it hard to believe. My own income from affiliate vary quite considerably – the best being $4000 in a day but it didn’t last too long and theer were considerable costs. I know people making 10 times that but with a good infrastructure and commitment.

    However, I can consistently make $400-$500 profit per day without TOO much trouble. Sometimes it gets as low as $100, sure and deffo things have gotten worse recently. That is enough for any person to get on with and reinvest to make even greater profits. Trouble is I am lazy!

    I will stick around and check out some more tips.

    For those that ARE sceptical – don’t fret about it. Most of teh people that I know who DON’T make money are in that position because they either do NOTHING or jump from one thing to another.

    on the flip side, it’s 10x more work.

    Quite simple u are a piece of shit!!
    Honestly if u had swung from 0.1K to 10K you could have proved with the images that u usually prove.Yea its ur blog n u have right to post the shits but to post the useless chuck is even bad!!
    This is all basic.
    A god Damn punk with no jobs n zero earnings can pull out these points.You could have posted about things of how to select a niche in such times or which black hat method could have been better !!

  21. January 17, 2009

    na! i don’t think that this dude has an extreme ego problem. he’s in with the winning team, further, i’ve seen some of his proteges doing great things too!

    but, i am glad people aren’t just praising him — like man your awesome!

    my suggest: give us a past example from 2008, even if you cannot reveal all things, tell us about the findings – eg. traffic from second source (how much) etc. (was it social or blog generally)

    it would be cool to see a prior play in its entirety. alright.

  22. January 17, 2009

    ….and if you guys would have read his prior article: “Experiences with smaller traffic sources” maybe there is a clue there (traffic source)

    P says: “And in general, I’ll probably just stick with Google, Facebook, and Myspace for my traffic sources. They’re all a pain to work with in 1 way or another, but they all do work if you can figure them out.”

  24. January 18, 2009

    Hey Paul, next time, i would love to see a screenshot…even though you despise them, just to give us some more motivation.

  25. January 18, 2009


    I agree with you. This is possible to become rich just from blogging.

  26. January 20, 2009

    I like the idea of focusing on the 2 or 3 avenues that send you the most traffic. It’s also consistent with the Pareto Principle.

  33. January 27, 2009

    Great post I’m sure much success in February

  34. ryan moran
    January 27, 2009

    You made that much because you got the money to do it. (note: to all noobies you can’t make that much when you start off well it’s simple you don’t have thousands ans thousands of dollars to test and waste

    Nice post. When you made your post I was making $8k-$10k/day, but that has already gone away and I keep checking back to your blog to see if I see something like, “The 10k/day has ended.” Also, I’ve really thought about starting a blog, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all the haters. To success in 2009!

  36. February 1, 2009

    Yes, you are right it is better to focus on a few…

  37. February 4, 2009

    Its always nice to hear success stories…if only they were the whole story! lol

  38. February 5, 2009

    Well done mate, that is an awesome story. $10k/day is one great achievement!

  39. February 6, 2009

    I wonder what kind of idea you make to focus on the works.I mean you dont tell me yet from how much is $6 come from and I think you yet tell me what the affilaite name that you make sale into ,and please tell me closer to what marketing magic have you spell in your mouse and keybord to make that magical reality?

  40. February 8, 2009

    The author of this site has built credibility by publishing his highs and lows. He lets us know when income is down, the lessons he learned, and the plans he has for improving. This blog is very educational for new affiliate marketers or those seeking to learn from the experiences of one.

    Congratulations, Paul. This month is impressive.

  41. February 10, 2009

    What kinda business that makes you to earn this much? If you playing penny Stock market then i would believe you. Btw, lots of people were so arguing whenever someone posted this stuff as they wouldn’t believe that story, don know why but i’m definitely not the types of that guy. No offense but just wondering why they can earn that much and from which site that they are advertising

    Is this guy not the biggest charlatan in Affiliate Marketing…

    February 14, 2009

    well that was a waste of time… you basically just said… I made lots of money by… working hard at making lots of money!

    Seriously, there wasn’t one valuable time in there.

    It’s like you just padded out the following:

    I made a butt-load of money! All I did was..

    1. I worked hard

    2. I broke up with my girlfriend

    3. Focused on one thing

    4. Got traffic from somewhere… Google (big surprise) and a secret place. (thanks for that “valuable” tip.. don’t think it’s smart to let people know WHERE you got this secret traffic? I’m thinking maybe spamming?)

    5. Figured it was smarter to have a shitload of traffic instead of a good converting sales page… BRILLIANT….

  44. February 16, 2009

    i’m seeing a lot of numbers here and from other sites john and zac. I’m also wondering how you guys earn this much with affiliate. Thanks for this post.

  45. February 17, 2009

    What I see here is a fury of the people tempted by the alluring title to find some quick tips to get rich easily, I also saw the conflicted mind of the writer who is eager to share some thing with the blog reader and keep some other things secret as some online success methods are too easy copy, how to find a way to solve the problem? maybe opening a private class would be a way.

  46. February 19, 2009

    Paul doesn’t promote it, does he?

    Great to have you back. Sorry about your breakup – never fun.

    Obviously you are great at what you do – is there a core philosophy you follow or were you mentored by anyone?
