“How To Make $3 A Day 700 Times”
==> Subtitle: In 2009, do you know your FORMULA and do you know
exactly HOW you’re gonna SCALE it up?
By Marlon Sanders
Six months ago I’m chit chatting on the phone with
my friend David Frey from MarketingBestPractices.com.
Dave told me he had these 2 friends.
And these guys made $11,000 a day using Google Adsense
back in the haydays of that thing.
They had fancy boats, houses, cars, the whole nine yards.
These guys wanted to sell one of Dave’s printer kopen but it
wasn’t the right deal. And maybe one of my Dashboards
would be right for them.
They could move 5,000 units a week. And while I wouldn’t
get much per unit, maybe I could work out a deal to get
the customer names then sell stuff to ’em on the “back
I’m not one to hop on deals like that.
Instead of running a big business with a buncho employees,
I run a small ship. On a good month, we run a tight ship.
And I have to stay focused on the few things I feel we
That would be creating my own brand of products and selling
Still, if these guys could bring me the names of 5,000
customers a week, that’d work.
I spoke to ’em on the phone and before I could blink an eye,
they’d flown in. They found my office using a GPS thingy.
Didn’t even have to give ’em directions.
I immediately thought, “Wow, I WISH I could hire these guys!’
Anyway, we hang out and chit chat.
They told me the whole $11,000 a day adsense story. Now,
these guys fly WAY under the radar on purpose. You haven’t
hear of ’em and they like it that way.
At first, I wasn’t entirely sure about the $11,000 a day Adsense
story. ‘Till they showed me a few pix of houses, cars, boats.
You get the idea.
Alright. You’re who Dave said you were.
One of the guys was thin, not tan, looked like a family guy,
pix of his wife and kids in his wallet. Really, kinda an
A bit understated when he talked. He was the “nice guy.” His
friend was “the negotiator.” Or that’s how I perceived it.
Don’t get me wrong. I liked both of ’em.
He told me his whole theory of bringin’ in the bux with online
You get a small margin on something, Then you blow it up really
They made a small margin on each page or site. But they blew it
up big time. I think they had a whole team of people in India
doing it. A lot of people. I don’t remember the exact numbers.
But a lot.
Anyway, I didn’t do the deal.
I’d have to give up on how my products were sold. Everything.
I could private label. But it ain’t like people don’t know
Dashboards are from me.
I invented ’em, along with Sales Letter Generator software, along
with the freebie gift before you ask for the testimonial, along with
the 12-step sales letter writing formula everyone teaches, along
with the 2-page web site model. Along with a lotta stuff.
So I didn’t do the deal.
But for Christmas, the understated guy sent me a gift basket. That
was a nice touch.
So when you speak at a lot of seminars, everyone and their dog sends
you gift baskets. But when my mom got Alzheimers, I stopped doing
the seminar circuit. And then, after a guy ran a red light and hit
my car doing 70, it’s not so easy for me to go on the road anymore.
I have to find a chiropractor usually. I get invitations. I coulda
gone ton Singapore 2X last year. I turned down another gig. I spoke
in UK but had to hunt down a chiropractor on a Saturday!!
That means I’m not flooded with gift baskets like I used to be. So
a guy like this guy. Or a Yanik Silver. Guys who remember you, even
if you aren’t as much in the limelight. They stand out.
Well, the other day this guy sends me an email. I won’t go into
details. But I found out his LATEST venture….
Another cookie cutter.
He found a way to make $3 a day from web sites selling affiliate
products. OK. You’ve heard that before ad nauseum.
But here’s the TWIST: The dude did it 700 times!
And I know it’s true.
Come on now. You should see the dude’s boat. Actually, I think
technically it’s a yacht. I don’t know much about boats.
But he sent me a video of the account. It’s true.
You know, let’s have a candid moment here.
Probably four thousand people have came out with that whole
“make a little site and do it 4,00X pitch.”
It’s older than the hills in Internet marketing terms.
Now, something you gotta understand here.
I hired a personal trainer and was working out like a maniac.
Cardio every day. Lifting weights. Getting muscle and really
strong. But 3 days before Xmas we did some leg weights.
And the day after Xmas I had this BIG bulge in the mirror.
I’m like, “What the $$)#*( is that?”
A hernia. So now I will likely miss Yanik’s gig to have this
fixed so I can get back in the gym. In the meantime, when I
don’t exercise, I don’t sleep that great.
Particularly the night before I talked to this guy. So I’m
in NO mood for b.s.
I’m just flat out BLUNT: I say, “Bro, you got NO USP here.
Forty million people have said they got this formula to make
3 bucks a day with web sites.”
He said, “Yeah, but I’ve done it 700 times!”
THAT got my attention.
He actually employs 3 people in the Philippines who just do
this thing full time.
Which got my attention because I have a friend in the Philippines
who needs work.
Then I SMACK him hard again, “Dude, the whole article marketing
thing has be done to DEATH!”
I found out he doesn’t use articles to get the traffic. It’s a
web 2.0 thing. Frankly, nothing fancy at all.
He told me if he does it personally, he can create one of his
sites and the marketing for it in 15 or 30 minutes, outsourcing
the actual web site part.
Now, NONE of HOW he does this matters. At least not for this
Here is my POINT:
He’s the ONLY PERSON I really know who post-adsense has really
delivered on the promise of getting a whole bunch of web sites
that make 3 bucks a day.
But even that isn’t the REAL take away here for you.
To me, it’s this:
He found ONE THING that made 3 bucks a day that was simple
enough to outsource. Then he outsourced it.
Just simple repetition.
The GLITCH in all these “repetition” pitches I hear is that yeah
they got 5 or 10 sites that make a $10 a day or whatever. But
they don’t scale up.
However, if you CAN find a way to do it that will scale, it’s
And the reason I’m writing this article and you’re reading it is
to say this…
My friend made $11,000 a day in Adsense by getting ONE thing that
worked. Then scaled it up.
He did the SAME thing with this dirt simple little system. And I
haven’t asked him yet. But I bet he’s done it with other things.
You HEAR people talk about this pitch with article marketing. But
honestly, I don’t think you’ll come anywhere near $3 a day per
article with article marketing.
What my friend did was EXPERIMENT.
1. He doesn’t use Clickbank or Commission Junction for the
affiliate stuff. His testing showed those didn’t convert for this
2. His traffic source is NOT article marketing. It’s a web 2.0
thing that’s not really being used tons by others. At least, not
for affiliate marketing like this.
This article is about the power of repetition and scalability.
In my business, I developed a way to roll out product after product
to my list.
And a way to get money in the door every month. A method hardly
anyone else does, when I stop to think about it.
What I’ve just given you is the secret behind all great wealth,
accomplishments and achievements.
Done with excellence.
Performed over and over.
A lot of people have read “Amazing Formula.” Thousands actually.
But not many really understood it.
What I said in that product was you build a list and roll a new
product out to it every month.
I was the first person I believe to really say, “Hey, a NEW era of
marketing has arrived. Using the web and ebooks, you can create a
new product every month and roll it out to your list.”
Most people don’t understand that’s a MODEL. I called it a FORMULA
but it’s a model. The FIRST one that really said we’re in a new
era of digital products. And you can roll out to your list every
Now, that model kinda morphed into “build a list and hammer it with
You can do that. I’m not sure it’s the optimal way to go about it.
What’s your MODEL?
Do you KNOW?
Do you have a month-by-month plan for implementing it in this new
year? If you don’t know what your MODEL is, THAT is why you have
problems with FOCUS.
That is WHY you feel overwhelmed.
Because you don’t know the OUTCOME. You don’t know what FORMULA
you’re following or why. You don’t know HOW you are scaling up.
If you do, or if you don’t, spit back at me on my blog:
I personally respond to most comments there. NOT an employee.
How many other marketers who have sold millions online are willing
to RESPOND to posts on their blog?
I’m not an “ivory tower” marketer where I’m like Moses on the
mountain with the 10 commandments and if you come near me without a
handful of money I’ll strike you dead with lightning!
That’s kinda how Internet marketing is nowadays.
I’m not saying I’ll have lunch with you or hang out. I won’t. But
I WILL read your blog post and try to give you an intelligent
response, even it’s brief.
