Total Profit: $1,801.28 (+$935.84 from August)
September ended up being a half-way decent month with a total profit of $1,801.28…but why am I not satisfied? If it were $3,000 would I be satisfied? How about $6,000? $10,000?
What I’d really like to see is more consistent growth in my business. And the only way to do that is to reinvest my profits BACK INTO my business.
So what does that mean?
I’ve calculated that I can increase my list from 5,000 to 10,000 subscribers for about $2,500 to $3,000. To do that I’ll need to buy A LOT of solo ads…but I think with the current funnel I have setup I’ll be able to do it in an intelligent way.
What does this mean for you?
In the next few months you’ll be seeing me taking a lot of action with my business. I’ll be launching a new product in early November about solo ads, running my own solo ad campaigns, and fully focusing on taking my business to the next level.
Would you like to come with me?
It’s funny that when I send out emails for my revenue reports they get the HIGHEST open rates than anything else I do….so it means that people LOVE to see how others are succeeding or failing…it’s why reality TV is so popular.
But WATCHING is different than PARTICIPATING.
My goal for doing all this publicly is to inspire YOU to also take action. I want you to learn from my mistakes and triumphs so that you can also create a business that allows you to live the way you’d like to live.
And therefore I’ll be starting to release mini-products and Kindle books about EXACTLY what I’m doing so that you can learn too.
Free Solo Ad Training Videos!
As part of my launch for my next solo ad interview product, I’ll be releasing a FREE training series to get you excited about entering the world of solo ads. I’ll be teaching the core basics of how solo ads work so that even if you’re not interested in buying the product you’ll still learn MORE from the free training than from most other half-baked products out there 🙂
So that’s it for this month. I expect profits to be minimal for the rest of the year, but overall revenue should increase. Stay tuned 😉
And here are some pictures from September 🙂
