    Does anyone know anyone (or know of anyone) who makes $10k/month?

    If so, would you please tell me how many IM (internet marketing) techniques they use to do it?

    I'm certain they had to outsource some things, but it seems like the skills needed to make even $1k/month are endless and exhausting. List building, backlinks, facebook, twitter, CPC and SEM (adwords, bing, yahoo), youtube, making professional images, building your own site (or wordpress), SEO, social media (pinterest, twitter), ebay marketing (using ebay to enhance your brand!), etc.

    Urgh!

    I'm just curious if it's reasonable to expect, say $1k/week by learning a handful of these techniques. For example, using facebook ads, 1 youtube video a week, and twitter to promote a clickbank product.

    Thanks for any advice.

    This question is so ridiculous I actually like it, lol.

    Really, there's no way to quantify such a thing...depends on the person, their skill set, and the method. You could use a single technique and bank way harder than &1k a week. On the other hand a person utilizing multiple techniques might struggle to make $100 a week.

    Your best bet is to choose a method you like, learn it, and learn it well. Once you master it you'll find you may earn more than you originally intended. If not, at least you'll have a reliable income stream, and can branch out to another method to master.

    From what I have read and guys I know who have hit such figures I would say the skill comes in finding good outsourcing
    companies and people. You cant touch every aspect of internet marketing. You have to spread the work out.

    Loving the answers, even the BS (thanks, fistor).

    I started the thread after reading about Scrapebox. It sounds like the swiss army knife of IM software... just like every other software sold here.

    And there seems to be a lot of advice coming from people who later claim to not break $1k/month.

    Maybe I should ask, what are the most important tools you'd recommend to make serious money... and define what 'serious' means to you.

    Wow!!!! I love it how people just jump in and expect to have a silver spoon handed to them!

    Read the forum, do research and as someone above said, you cant quantify these things!
    If something works for someone it may not always work for you, you have to find your own niche!
    Trial and error!

    And yea, welcome to BHW :)
