In 1990 I was fresh out of college and experienced 7 years of hits and misses, mostly misses.
I got my real start in 1998 helping a new business owner selling a stock trading strategy package to get his business off the ground. Within a year it had turned into a 5-figures-per-month business. After a couple of years he took his business primarily offline and started intensively direct mailing (not my focus of expertise). Please understand that this screen shot is from 2001.
In 2001 I did some work for a commodities trading strategy and software business, which immediately began adding over $200,000 per month to its gross income due to the advertising programs I created. Eventually they wanted me and my partner in California to actually move to Florida and work in their offices to justify our commissions. We said no. I can’t find out the lead generation page we created for them in 2002 but here is their 2005 home page.
From 2003 to 2007 I worked for a Canadian financial services company and helped it to generate an additional $1.5 million per year in revenues.
In a nutshell, for the last 16 years every dollar I’ve made has been a result of setting up Internet lead generation and followup systems and building income.
