    Hey guys,

    I have been learning a lot from online forums (mostly BHW) without giving any feedback. I think it is time for me to come out the basement and start contributing. I am not an expert in internet marketing, so if I say or do anything wrong please help me out. In addition, it would be great to get advice. I literally only have about 2 dollars in my bank account. A successful journey would be really great. I have all the time in the world to work on this.

    How am I going to make money?

    I have created a software product in the IM/MMO niche. This software took about a month to create. I will create a sales page and slap a payment button on it. Furthermore, I will create a JV page and find affiliates. This is where I expect most of my income to come from and I will be focusing on affiliates the most.

    What am I doing now?


    • I am currently splitting this product into 2 versions so I can upsell an upgraded version.
    • I just purchase a domain name from GoDaddy for 0.99 cents :)
    • I just got free hosting from RoyalWebHosting... waiting for my domain to connect to it
    • Researching on tools to assist me in my journey.. since I will not have time to make one.

    What affiliate platform am I going to use?

    Mostly likely JVZoo because of the instant PayPal payments. I want to multi-platform in Clickbank and Clicksure, but that will be later on. Need money to activate product on these platform first.

    What now?

    Well... time to start making money! I know it will mostly likely be a slow start. Especially, since I am not doing any sort of launch. Since I do not have a job right now, I will have a lot of time to work on promotion and getting affiliates.

    Current Statistics:

    Loss: $0.99 (Domain name)
    Earn: $0.00
    Profit: - $0.99

    Best of luck! How much will your software cost?

    I am quiet sceptic to the goal you've set but I would love if you just prove me wrong like it was nothing!

    I will check in here every now and then to see how it goes!

    Best,
    hekke

    I am going to charge around $47 for the frontend product and $97 for the backend.

    In actuality, I would love to prove myself wrong. I set high goals for myself to push myself harder everyday. It has worked in the past.. lets see if it works here.

    Thank you. At first I set a goal of $5000, then I saw a video by a newbie product creator. He made it seem so easy to do this stuff. So I said to myself I can do this if I research and work hard everyday and slapped another zero at the end of my goal.

    For 50k a month, I guess you must have made a couple of k by now? No? How surprising. There is a difference between positivity and dreaming, dreamers tend to get nowhere as they are too busy with their heads stuck in the clouds.

    Thanks for the input. I know I set the goal pretty high, but I am completely positive on this venture.

    One of the reasons I have not made any couple of k right now is because I am planning on doing a launch. It is much more profitable in the beginning to build up hype and launch your product than just to put your product out there. If I was an affiliate, I would want to know that I am one of the first people promoting a new product. That is my thinking though.

    I just finished my page, so now I am gathering as much affiliates and JV partners. Launch will be next week, so I will be expecting earnings then.

    If you have anymore input, please let me know. Cheers!

    So I have 74 affiliates so far who are going to email my product to their email list when the product launches. These affiliates are also on my affiliate email list so I can let them know about future products. I am still thinking about making other IM/MMO products, but I think I will not. My main goal is to become a independent game developer and start putting games on the iOS and Android market.

    That's quite some goal you've set for yourself.

    Well, I'll see how this goes.

    Good luck on your journey.

    I'm a programmer myself, and I believe all the softwares have the potential to make a lot of money. you may not reach 50k per month, but definitely you can make at least 50k in total.
    I also have made a new software, its kinda about seo. its very helpful, I made 75$ myself with it,with just 10 minutes (it took 4 month to get 75$,not immediately. but easy). I don't think it can reach 50k per month but it could easily reach 15k per month. may I know how you got this many affiliates ? can you give me some tips, as you know our biggest problem is promoting the product we create, since we are not marketer.
    I don't want to pay somebody else to make a salepage for me, since they charge so much. and I still haven't made any money to be able to invest. and I'm kinda skeptical about partnering up, its very hard to find a good partner who knows how to market.
    I made a long sale page, even though it looks great, but I believe its gonna be useless and it won't convert, and I have to make another one.
    I would appreciate any help you can give me since I really need it.

    I'm a software developer myself as well. I'm planning to release some of my stuff soon, so I'll definetly keep an eye on this thread.
    Some say that you won't get to 50k/month, but I am positive that if the product is what people need, and with 74 affiliates, it might be a challange but for sure not impissible.
    Good luck!
