This is going to be one of my shorter income reports. I’m currently preparing to launch a product on November 5th, and I’m putting all my attention into that so it can be a successful launch.

I will say that by launching a product like this I’m headed into new territory. It’s one thing to make money as an affiliate, but once you start selling your own stuff there’s a lot of responsibility on your shoulders to deliver quality products…and also to make sales for your affiliates.

What can I say? This was another solid month :-)

I’m still in shock from this month’s results. I mean, my goal for 2014 was to be EASILY making $5,000 per month. Hitting almost $20,000 was something that I didn’t think would even be possible.

How was I able to do it? There were some AMAZING products to promote this month. One thing I love about my job is that I get to play with every new tool on the market and go through every new course. Sure, it can be a bit of information overload, but I know when I’ve hit something amazing. I have to be careful about saying “this is awesome, go get it” because if I say that for every product that I do an interview and review about then my recommendation becomes meaningless.

I’m finally finished with my product detailing the steps it takes to reach my kind of success!

I’m a bit obsessive about the products that I put out. I had my first product launch last year and sold an unimpressive 250 copies. I don’t want that to happen again.

This time around I’ve put extra care not only into my front end product, but also into the upsells as well. I’ve made it so that for some people the front end product will be enough, but for those who want to take it to the next level I’ve included 2 extra courses that are filled with some of my most valuable information that I normally reserve for my coaching students. I plan to have a LOT of happy customers.

So when is it launching???

I’m officially opening the cart on Wednesday, October 22nd at 11am EDT. They’ll be an early bird discount as well for those of you who take action quickly…I’ll announce more about that closer to the launch.

What else is on my mind?

I’ve had an urge to get back into buying traffic. I’m on the brink of a full assault on solo ads. I keep hearing that they are “crap traffic” but I’ve had some success with them in my past, and with a tweaked and converting sales funnel I should be able to get some decent results.

I’ve slowly been integrating Improvely into my marketing so I can track the lifetime value of a new subscriber. The thing I like about this system is that I can track the quality of the traffic solo ad providers are sending me, AND I can find out if the subscribers buy anything through my affiliate links later on. Most tracking tools allow you to see conversions on your own products, but Improvely lets you track affiliate links as well, which is perfect for me since 90% of my income is through affiliate sales.

It can be pretty difficult to make your money back immediately from a solo ad buy, but if I know I’m making my full investment back in one or two months, then I’m completely fine with throwing a TON of money at solo ads.

Think of it this way: would you invest $100 today if you knew you’d get it back two months from now along with an asset that’s earning $10/month? If your answer is “no” then you’re crazy :-)

My Coaching Program

Students are slowly drifting in…and that’s exactly what I want. The only “advertising” I’ve done for it is mentioning it here and a few other places. When I first started I had ZERO content in the members area. Now, a couple months later I have a full training system to bring a newbie-marketer to an advanced level. If you’re interested in investing in yourself then you can apply HERE.

And that’s it…

Not much else to report. I’m just doing my thing, finding amazing products, and presenting them to my audience. I LOVE my job :-)

So it’s a new record! July was officially the BEST month of profits I’ve ever made from doing the Mike From Maine Show. With the combined income from interviews, reviews, and coaching, I was able to beat my best month (March) by $594.09 :-)

Here’s a list of past income reports from 2014 below:

January$4,641.10

February$7,471.62

March$11,407.25

April: $10,569.20

May$9,740.18

June: $11,384.01

July: $12,001.34

My all time best income report is still $13,155.67 from July, 2012, but that’s from a time when I was using a different income model from building Adsense niche sites (which I don’t do anymore since Google slapped me).

The funny thing is that I thought this was going to be a bad month for me. Traditionally Summer months can be a bit slow for Internet marketers as most of our customers are off on vacation and spending more time outside. Heck, even I spent a week on the coast of Turkey this month with my wife.

My affiliate income took a bit of a hit in July, but I made up for it by signing up two new students to my Elite Coaching program. That helped to balance out my income a bit, and I’m finding that I have a passion to teach. Getting results for myself is great and all, but there’s nothing like seeing someone who has been struggling online for years finally “get it” and make progress. I love it!

What did I do in July?

I finally put together a product explaining exactly how I make around $278/day online. I’ve been releasing it sneakily to a few people who can find it, but I won’t be doing a full launch of it until September when I’ve had the time to add some value-added upsells to it and test out conversions with solo ads.

What’s the product all about?

It teaches my 12-Step Blueprint that is responsible for my success. It goes over EXACTLY what I’ve done to build up my business so that you can copy it too.

I’ll also be including additional training on creating videos to promote affiliate offers and list building.

Now it’s YOUR turn. Is there anything that you want me to cover specifically in the course?
Leave a comment below and I’ll do my best to cover EVERYTHING I CAN inside the course.

Oh, and here are some pictures from July :-)

Another good month.

What can I say? It was a fairly normal month as far as income goes. It’s pretty amazing that I had only $253.04 in business expenses to make over $11,000 in profit. It would be nearly impossible to run most businesses at such a low cost. Again, it shows how incredible affiliate marketing and product creation can be.

Coaching Program on the horizon

I finally set up my coaching program this month where I’ll be slowly accepting clients. In this program I’ll be teaching how to make money from affiliate marketing, list building, and product creation. I haven’t started promoting it yet, but I’m currently accepting applications for those interested in getting serious and moving to the next level. If you’re interested APPLY HERE.

Moving Forward

Reblogged from Startup Quote

I’m at the point where I’m making enough money to pay for my daily expenses, deposit into my savings account, and invest back into my business. I’d like to be consistently putting in about 30-50% of my profits each month BACK into my business so I can start growing at a faster pace. Of course I don’t want to just throw money away, so I’ve been carefully crafting out a sales funnel for new lead generation to funnel into my coaching program.

The great thing about this is that by taking action I’ll be going in the right direction even if I don’t get the results I desire. The WORST thing I can do for my business right now is become complacent and stand still.

 

 

 

A new product???

As part of the sales funnel I mentioned above I’ll be doing my first JV style product launch since the end of July, 2013. My goal is to release this by the end of August after first testing out the funnel with solo ad traffic.

I see a lot of people launching product after product with no real “goal” for their funnel. I’ve been thinking long and hard about the “end goal” for the sales process and have crafted a sales funnel based upon that, rather than trying to think up a front end product and then think of the “money” product afterwards.

When I say “Money” product, I mean the product that’s going to be the real cash generator in the launch. For example, if you launch a product at $7 with a $17 OTO and a $27/recurring membership and give away 100% commissions then you’re going to make $0 from affiliates. This is EXACTLY what Alex Jeffreys does. Why? Because he knows that he’ll make his money back in his coaching students.

Let’s say you spend $500 on sales copy, $500 on advertising, and $2,000 on JV prizes for a total cost of $3,00o for your launch giving away 100% to affiliates. If affiliates send you 10,000 visitors, your sales page converts at 10%, and you bring in 1,000 sales you’ll have made $0, right? If you give away 100%, yes. But that’s not where the magic happens.

The magic happens when you have the “money” product in the backend. Whether it’s a high-priced webinar or coaching, THAT’S where you’re going to make your money.

So, if you can convert just 1% of those 1,000  new customers into coaching clients paying $1,997  each then that’s $20,000 back into your pocket. And that’s not even counting the money that will be made in affiliate commissions. These are HOT leads that have bought from you and are EAGER to learn more.

 

That about wraps it up. I’m EAGER to move ahead and build my business INTELLIGENTLY by investing in things that will move me forward at as fast a pace as possible. I know that the only way to do this is to take risks, help others, and perhaps fail a bit in the process. I’m a bit scared…but more excited than anything else!!!
