First $500/day

    I posted my first $250/day a month ago. Today I've surpassed $500 a day with PPC marketing for the first time. A great accomplishment given a few months ago I never thought this was possible. Again much thanks to GTAce for his mentor course and my stubborn nature of never giving up. The journey up to here wasn't smooth but I did it. I can only imagine how far I can take this.

    I share some tips with you on my blog which I recently started after my success in affiliate marketing. I also recommend GTAce private course if you can get in. Remember you have to work hard. It wasn't until the 3rd or 4th month I started making serious cash.

    That's gross. Net profit is running at just over 100%.

    I have the code on my blog. You should check out the keyword tracking post.

    Thanks. Yes! It's much easier to reach that number now. About little over 3 months ago, reaching $100 a day seemed like going to the moon. Once I figured how to make $40 a day, scaling that up to $100 a day and then to $200 and then to $300+ a day was just a matter of replicating the process. And that's all it takes.

    Without getting into too much details, I can tell you that, I make good profit with even low eCPC like that. In fact I don't consider that low at all. That's because over time I managed to lower my CPC...low enough to make little over 100% ROI.

    I guess I can get my ECPC even higher and generate even more profits...but then again that i know that will happen over time...I'm still learning ;)

    Awesome work man.

    Inspiring stuff for a guy like me who has been doing a TON of reading but is too scared to lose money at the start. I just can't afford to LOSE $500-$1000 or more at the beginning.


    How much $$$$ would you say an affiliate needs at the start? Not only that, but how much time does it take to BUILD a steady income?

    Are you planning on offering some type of course that someone (like me) could take....or any working 1-on-1 with people?

    Right now I'm not in the position to start a forum or a course. I'm still learning myself.

    To answer your question, you really don't need lot of money to start if you have been trying this for a while. Yes, you will have to burn through some money to test and learn before you stumble upon something good. You can't be afraid to lose money.

    When I was doing this I didn't have any technical hurdle since I've the technical knowledge (html, css, javascript, php, etc) but I did struggle with designing and web writing. But these are the skill you kind have to pick up as you go along while testing stuff.
