I got into thinking about ‘making money online’ about 7 years ago. Thats when I had zero assets online and I was starting from scratch. Of course, I had no idea at that time that I would make close to a cool million.
Anyhow, after browsing and looking around, I decided to give Forex Trading a go. It seemed to be a good way to make money. Just sit at home, watch charts on your computer and download the money. You don’t even have to step out of the house. Needless to say, it appealed to me.
I bet you’re thinking I made my money from trading. You’d be wrong. After playing the markets for a while, I realized that there were many traders asking question on trading forums. Most of the new traders were looking for systems. So I sat down and devised a few systems and put it into a book form. I went back to the forum and asked if anyone would like to buy it. I got tons response. I sold each copy for just $10.
So after thinking about this, I thought hmmm, I could make more money with another book. So then I created a beginners guide to trading. I sold this for $97 a copy. This time, I made a site and collected emails and did some advertising online etc.. This sold like hot cakes too because I also set up an affiliate program with this book.
Then, after a couple of years or so, I thought, I already have a good following. I already have a good subscriber list.
If I were to create a course with bells and whistles and sell it for $1000 each, I could make some serious money.
The Next Step
So I sat down and started creating this course. I knew it had to be a really powerful course to be worth so much money. It took be the best part of 9 months to complete the course. It was spread over many CDs and a manual. Once it was completed, I had to arrange all sorts of things to launch this product:- Website, Launch Sequence, Launch Material and of course Joint Venture partners.
I managed to gather a few big names in the industry and this was the biggest factor in creating the sales. On launch day, all hell broke lose. Phones were constantly manned and orders were coming in from all sorts of places. To add to that, Paypal shut my account which created huge cashflow problems. From this launch, I raked in just under a million bucks. However, all of that wasn’t mine. I had to give 2/3rds to affiliates etc… but I was left with enough money to buy a house (which I did). Sometime after that, I decided to make money in other ways but I also wanted to help others at the same time.
So I set about creating a site which teaches people to make money. In fact any guru who publishes a product online about “Make $124,975 in the Next 90 Days” and things like that, I take the idea, make my own product and share it with people on my site. The site has taken a huge leap upwards and people love it as they get the information that they can’t afford to buy from the gurus themselves. They can get the same information from my site for $5 a month. For that, they get not 1, but 4 of the latest money making products every month.
It’s Your Turn
Nowhere on the net can you get a good, buzz worthy money making product for a fiver, let alone four whole product for $5 in total. You can see for yourself. The site I set up is http://www.JunkieClub.com and it has many members who receive their weekly dose of money making products for next to nothing ($5/month). So if you want to make a million like I did, I don’t know if you’ll be able to replicate my success but the site I own now, can lead you in that direction.
Hope this helps,
