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 🙂

 

Here are some photos from August 🙂

One of my hobbies is finding sea creatures at the beach…I found this little crab who tried his hardest to pinch me 🙁

Way to be crushing it man!! I told you that you’ll hit your tipping point soon where you just crush it from one month to the next!

Next stop is $40k a month! Plus you’ll start noticing how your mind expands and the bigger numbers start looking more achieveable.

    Yeah, I remember you telling me I’d be hitting $20k soon…almost there.

    40K still seems to be far away, but definitely achievable.

Mike,
Along all the long years I spent in the business arena (over thirty years), I have very rarely found a businessman with your level of transparency.
I’m not talking here only about your results disclosure, but also about the honesty of your reviews
I admire that. So keep on walking in that same direction and you will be doomed to a total success.
Best,
Roberto

    Thanks, Jim. I think too many people approach Internet marketing as a hobby. When you run it like a business the results come much more easily.
