|How Much Do My Customers Earn From Internet Marketing and What Are Your Chances of Ever Making a Dime or Getting The Same Results, Traffic, Sales or Response I Do?|
In a fairly recent survey of my cusotmers and list members, I asked how much they have earned online to date.
Now, the people who answered this survey were not all customers of mine. It included a cross section of customers and people who are on my list and likely read my ezine, and hopefully follow at least some of the things I teach there.
Also, these figures are not exclusively based on using what I teach. I don’t think there IS anyone who ONLY buys and uses my products and teachings. If there is, it’s only a few people. In reality, people buy books and ebooks at Amazon, books at the bookstore, courses and ebooks from other teachers of marketing and Internet marketing. If I DID have numbers on people who exclusively used my methods, I’m pretty sure they’d still be very close to the numbers below.
5.1% of 178 people who responded said they have made over $100,000. That is cumulative and not in one year, although it could be in one year. That number is higher than I expected.
7.9% said they’d made over $10,000. Now, in a follow up survey I need to break that down on earnings between $10,000 and $100,000.
9.1% had made over $1,000. 38.8% or roughly 40% hadn’t made anything.
Now, here is what I want to point out:
What these numbers do NOT show is the percentage of people who consistently worked at least one hour a day for say 6 months or a year. I plan a follow up survey on that BUT I can tell you it’s likely ABOUT the same percentage of people who have made $100,000.
I can ALSO tell you that those 40% who never made anything could run a wso and probably make their first $50 or $100 within a week or two or three, depending of course. If they put an ebook on Amazon, there’s a very good chance of making your first buck or 50 bucks, or a lot more than that. If you put an auction up on ebay or some auctions, you got a very good chance of making some money. If you put an ebook up on Clickbank or Tradebit, you got a very good chance of making some money with a little effort, promotion and publicity.
The bar is pretty darned low for making some cash. You can make good Youtube videos, become a partner, and get Adsense royalties sharing. Lots of people, even kids do that. They get checks and all they do is make videos and stick ’em up on Youtube. All I’m saying is the bar isn’t that high.
