    We've all heard of never keeping all your eggs in one basket.
    So, I'm curious. How many sources of income do you have?

    Not asking for the amount you make, or how you do it.
    But a number, and what you do would be nice.

    For me it use to be only one source, Clickbank.
    I haven't been making any money for a while, but I'm working on some videos atm.

    One for now, but I am working on to create other sources as fast as I can.
    The worst thing that can happen is to succeed in IM and fail hard becouse you only had one source of income.

    I have only one source of income that is IM... but on 4 different affiliate websites... I am planning to make other sources OFFLINE.. like a real business since I do not take IM as long-lasting (that is based on what I am doing)...

    Luckily I have 2 sources of Income (Fiverr, Revenyou) but sometimes Its difficult to get new orders on Fiverr. So, I'm more dependent on Revenyou.

    I currently have 5 income streams:
    1. My local IM/SEO business.
    2. Photoshop for people online and locally.
    3. Adsense.
    4. Clickbank (I don't actively promote these products any more, but all of the sites I created for them are still up and receive a bit of traffic).
    5. My signature.
    I've been looking to create a 6th income stream possibly in the form of a BST here, a PBN, or through becoming a Clickbank vendor, but I haven't decided which one I want to do first.

    I have 5.

    My primary source is 1 LLC / website I've put years into building the funnel. It has a massive funnel and awesome reputation online. I do the marketing my brother handles the sales. Rankings have improved quite a bit this past month (impressions up 80% in G local alone) but traffic and conversions have been shit lately. We're suppose to be "in season" right now, ranking better than we have in a while but noone want's to get work done on their home. I know my competitors are real slow too cause I saw them at a seminar last week. But this shit needs to change asap. Last May we cleared $40k and this past week we didn't sell 1 fucking job. Which doesn't make any sense at all cause our rankings were technically worse back then.

    Then another local site that I put less time into. Doesn't rank very well but still generates leads every now and then.

    Then YT + CB. Earnings with that went from $200 day back in early 2014 to now $200 week. It's really sad but I'm boosting 4 new videos with 4 different suppliers and trying to rank them within YT. I did a similar test like this a couple months ago, boosted 4 videos, 3 got banned but 1 stuck long term. I don't feel YT & CB is a lost cause yet I just think the ROI is exponentially lower. Which means much more work for far less $$$.

    Then I have a music site where I sell various things I'd rather not talk about. That's a potentially massive project I've been keeping on the back burners. I know the market really well. People love the site and it converts great. The problem is its way too small and lacking content. My goal is to add 400-500 super HQ tutorials (that I use to sell other shit). But it's very hard to do when I have a brother who's always asking, "how can we get more leads? why are things so slow right now?" lol.

    Then finally I have approx 20-25 CPA videos I did way before I got into Clickbank. I don't consider this a real source of income but it pays for my gas every month.

    Damn Good Replies.

    After I'm done with Clickbank, I'm either gonna make a PBN to sell links on or maybe a few Amazon Affiliate Websites.
    There's always web design for some Local Clients. (I have a txt file with about 10 sites, and they're all... well, ugly lol).
    So I could charge them a monthly fee for maintenance after I do the work on the theme.

    But yea, I got some plans I'm working on.
    I just keep thinking of trying to diversify, because just like wizard04 said:
    "The worst thing that can happen is to succeed in IM and fail hard becouse you only had one source of income."

    That would suck. lol.


    Lol.

    I just do PPD and trying Click bank. My biggest issue is I get excited too fast sometimes and I do way more than i can handle and then don't get much done!
