    I challenge anybody and everybody who thinks they're hot shit (specifically the people in thomor's July earnings thread :mamoru:) Let's set a goal for something like 200/day with a brand new site in some specific niche. Whoever gets there first wins bragging rights and a nice income. :mamoru:

    Who's up to the challenge? IBidon'thavetimeforthisshitialreadymakesixfigures

    I guess I'm all by myself on this one. I'll brainstorm this weekend and have something up hopefully. I'll even post daily results.

    Alright, got a message from one of the Genbucks affiliate support managers on DP and he says that the top 3 affiliates make 100k/month with the 10th guy just breaking 5 figures. It's hard to tell if these numbers are true.

    Average conversion is 2.5% (1:40) with the top guys converting 11.1-12.5% of their traffic (1:8-1:9). That's pretty damn good, considering I convert only 7-8% of my pharmacy traffic according to Google Analytics.

    I think I'm going to start multiple sites, probably start 5 at first. What's worked for me in the past is to focus on a couple sites first then kind of "rotate" working on my other sites. This way I'm diversified across different sites and can make a judgement call on what works and what doesn't. You don't want to get stuck pouring your time and effort into only one site with no reward as I've also done in the past.

    So using all organic and QUALITY traffic (PPC is worthless here), I've come up with some numbers that are quite doable.

    5 sites x 20 visits/day/site (on average) = 100 visits/day
    100 visits/day x 2.5% conversion rate = 2.5 orders/day
    2.5 orders/day x $80/order = $200/day

    Time frame is 3 months and I plan to budget $300-500 for this project. Anyone still with me? Let's make some money! :big grin:

    So you'll be focusing on SEO then eh?

    I've got a few hundred I could blow on a new venture as this.

    But how much do they spend? You're only getting one side of the picture there.

    I started with less than that. Let's just say that I will probably never have to look for another job ever again.

    PPC usually doesn't work for these types of sites. I'm assuming that most of them only obtain their visitors from search engines so the overhead is very minimal.

    Yeah, not bad. Stock market has been killing me though. I just moved into a new office but I'm thinking about moving out. There's a restaurant downstairs with live music that plays during the night which is kind of a distraction.

    Sounds interesting. Thinking about making a pharma type site soon... just bought a pretty wild spam type program to supplement it.
