How to build a $1 Million Dollar Business

So, we’re nearly 2 months into 2016. Have you hit your goals so far?
Do you even know what your goals are?
Mine are pretty big – I’m adding at least $4 Million to my business income this year with a project that I’m working on.
But if you’re new to running your own business, a goal like that might be a bit much.
So how about an additional $10k per month?
Honestly, that’s not hard if you follow some pretty simple steps.
Let me give you one example of EXACTLY how you can add around $10K per month to your income in as little as 3 months.
Now a lot of my ex-students might get a bit mad at me for sharing this here like this, as many, many people have paid me 5 figures to mentor them on this exact same stuff, but I’m going to do this anyway.
So what do I recommend you do?
You can build a solo ads business.
For me, this is probably the best possible place to start with internet marketing. It’s relatively simple, and doesn’t necessarily involve huge investment. This method has actually been the foundation of my internet marketing business since about 6 months after I started with Internet Marketing and is still, to this day, an important cornerstone of my business.
All you need to do is build a list. Then when you have a list, you can sell your clicks for between $0.30c and $1.50 per click and make money just from sending an email. If you build a list of say 100,000, and get a 1% click though rate, you’re looking at making $600 – $2000 per day just from sending a couple of emails. My business partner Sean and I have built lists more than 10x this size over the years (ie lists into the Millions).
I’ve had mentoring students build quickly and make as much as $20,000 in their second month working with me.
So what’s involved?
What You Need:
1. A website with a squeeze page
2. An Autoresponder and tracking software
3. A landing page that either generates a lot of traffic for you or an offer that converts and makes you money
4. Traffic
5. A Solo Ads Sales Page
6. A Mentor
1. A Website
This doesn’t have to be complicated. Just register a domain name and set up some webspace (I recommend Namecheap and Hostgator). On this website you will need to build a squeeze page that connects to your autoresponder and collects peoples email addresses. You should aim to get your squeeze page working to the point where you are averaging 50% or more from the traffic you are getting in.
On the squeeze page, you need to offer something cool and exciting as an ‘ethical bribe’ to entice people to sign up and give you their email address.
To build the page itself, there are plenty of easy ways to do this – go pay someone on fiverr to build one for you, go to leadpages, clickfunnels or similar, or grab a copy of Optimize press.
Once your new subscriber has signed up, you should take them through to a landing page / OTO page / offer page / thank you page where you either make some money or generate some clicks that you can use or sell.
Don’t forget to make sure you put a autoresponder email in to be delivered to your new subscriber immediately that gives them a way to get the free gift you promised them on the squeeze page.
2. An Autoresponder / Tracking Software
Once you have your website, you need to link it to your autoresponder and tracking. Aweber, Getresponse and others all allow you to collect emails and then send automated messages (follow ups) and one off messages (broadcasts) to the list of subscribers you have built.
Tracking software allows you to keep track of who has sent you what traffic, when, where the traffic has come from (ie country of origin) and much much more. It will also allow you to find out who has sent you good quality traffic that has given you a high opt in rate, and who has sent you poor quality traffic.
The messages you write will need to be focused on 2 things – building trust with your subscribers, so that the click on your emails, and clickthrough rates (ie the % of people that click on a link in any email you send). The better you get a writing emails, the better response rates you will get and the more money you can make.
3. Landing page / Offer
There are a couple of ways I recommend you approach the next step.
You can either build a landing page that has a whole bunch of links on it that creates a lot of traffic. These clicks you generate can be sold as ‘funnel’ clicks or sent to CPA offers and the like. Or you can use the clicks to swap with other partners via a process called clickbanking. This is where you agree to send a certain number of clicks to another marketer and they send clicks in return at a later point.
Alternatively, you can send your clicks to a high converting offer (either your own offer or an affiliate / CPA offer). If this is what you are doing, you need to make sure the offer converts like crazy so you can make money to re-invest in more traffic to continue to grow your list. Good places to get offers include JVZoo and Clickbank. You can also get involved in CPA offers by joining one of the CPA networks. Some need you to get an invite. If you need help with this, drop me a PM.
4. Traffic
This is key. There are a ton of ways to get traffic. Buying traffic from other solo sellers, facebook marketing, search engines, you tube, etc etc etc. If you’re using a thank you page to generate traffic to clickbank partners, you can generate huge volumes of subscribers very quickly with this method alone. Many past students of mine have just used this method alone to build a business to $10,000 per month in under 3 months.
Be very careful though when buying traffic. Not all sellers sell real traffic. Some people out there are scammers who will just send you ‘bot’ traffic that will look like it’s a real person, and will even subscribe on your squeeze page, but will often never click on anything again. When you’re getting traffic in make sure its genuine.
To get my students started when working with them on this side of Internet Marketing, I usually include serious amounts of traffic (depending on what mentoring package they have signed up for it can be 10,000 clicks or more). This way both I and they can be sure that they are getting good quality subscribers on their list from the start.
5. Solo Ad Sales Page
This is the way you’re going to make money with the list (initially at least). Selling your clicks that you can generate from your list is probably the easiest way to make some quick and easy money. Mine is here:
You can sell clicks from as little as 30c per click (if you’re desperate!) to $1.50 or possibly more. The higher priced clicks you sell will be when you’re selling something specific such as a geographically targeted solo (ie clicks just from the USA or UK or wherever the buyer wants them) or to a specific type of offer such as a Bizop or MLM opportunity. Bear in mind though when you’re selling to Bizops or MLMs, some of these are decidedly ‘dodgy’ and might not go down well with your list, causing you to get large numbers of unsubscribes. The sales effort involved in selling some of these higher priced clicks may be greater too. You might need to think about building a specific funnel geared towards helping people who are part of that MLM or Bizop which gets them to know, like and trust you and decide to put their faith in buying from you. Make sure you deliver good quality, and word will get round and you’ll get a good flow of business from other people in the same MLM / Bizop
Once you’re settled in, and making plenty of money from solos, you can experiment with using traffic in other ways to make money – sending to affiliate offers, CPA offers and your own offers if you have them.
6. A Mentor
To be honest, there is enough information in this post alone that you could set up and run a solo ad business. But the reality is you’ll probably take a long time doing it, and probably make a lot of bad mistakes on the way. Possibly costly ones. Possibly ones that could ruin your reputation as a seller permanently.
There are a lot of mistakes that can be made on the technical side too. Get some of these wrong and you could easily be banned from your autoresponder account or find yourself wasting thousands of clicks. When I first started, my mentor in the solo industry was a guy who had already been selling solos 5 years and had made some huge sums of money from it. He’d coached others to make as much as $40,000 after just 3 months, and he helped me (and has helped others) to build a 7 figure business in Internet Marketing. My mentor was Sean, and we are now business partners who have been working together now for nearly 5 years.
Scaling it up to a Million Dollar Business
Building a list and selling clicks as solos is just the start. There’s nothing at all to stop you, once you have a foothold in the industry, in growing your business quickly and effectively.
Once you know and understand what it is that you need to do to build a list, drive traffic and so on, you can start scaling up. You can start offering ‘Done For You’ services, you can help other people with their marketing, their copywriting, their funnels and so on. You can run webinars and live events to train people in making money online.
With automated systems and outsourcing, it’s possible to scale to a huge level with the power of the technology available to you via the internet. Building a $1 Million per year business in Internet Marketing just takes a little bit of guts and determination. The scalability is all there.
Go do it!
So seriously. I’ve just given you the golden egg for nothing. It’s up to you to run with it now. Take action. Do something.
Go find yourself a great mentor who knows what they are doing, can help you and will ideally drive a ton of traffic to you to get you started. Getting to $10k a month with a good mentor behind you is child’s play. Getting to $1,000,000 per year isn’t all that hard with the right mentor either.
If you have any questions, comments or questions, drop a message below or hit me with a PM. Talk soon
PS – Sean and I are running some live events and associated ongoing training for people who are serious about building a MILLION DOLLAR business.
We are only taking on 20 people, and places are strictly limited.
The entry price to get on this training is 5 figures and we will only take on people we think have the right attitude and aptitude.
Part of what is included is a mastermind group where you will be able to network with the other VIP students.
If you think this might be for you, drop me a message and we can talk some more about whether we can allocate you a place. Please don’t even think about contacting me though if you don’t have any money or the right attitude to succeed. We’re not looking for tyre kickers here.
If you think you could be right for this and want to make $1M or more in business in the shortest possible time, get hold of me ASAP before the places are all gone. After the 20 places are gone, it may be another year before we open this up again, if we open it up again at all that is.
