That is the challenge. Let me explain.
I need my online marketing business to generate enough income monthly that it at least replaces my income from my current job. Inspired by my mentor I sat down and wrote out a plan for how I would achieve that level of success. For me, hitting that level is Phase 1 and I want to attain it in 90 days. You see, the full picture, which I am calling ‘My Exit Strategy‘ looks something like this:
Phase 1 – 90 days to $4,000 – Hit Monthly Income Target (Target is greater than or equal to my current income)
Phase 2 – 120 – 150 days to $4,000/month – Consistency - This will prove to me the business is stable and I can depend on it for my income
Phase 3 – 120 – 150 days to $12,000 banked – Hit ‘Parachute’ Requirement – Have enough in the bank to cover 6 months of expenses
I would like to achieve each phase within the number of days that is listed next to it. Those are days from today. So, essentially, at least 90 days from now I should hit my Monthly Income Target, 120-150 days from now I will know if I can produce that monthly income target consistently, and 120 to 150 days from now I should have my parachute and be able to quit my job and work on my business full time.
Why Should You Care What About My 90 Day Blog Challenge?
For starters, you will be getting the cliff notes version of how this works out, rather than having to spend to time and money to do it yourself. I’ll be blogging daily explaining where I’m at in my business, what has been successful and what has not. You will get a real example of what can be done in 90 days.
If you are still scratching your head wondering who the hell I am and why you should care you can learn more about me and my mission on my About Me page.
Who Will This Blog Challenge Benefit?
- Anyone new to Internet Marketing, who might be currently searching for ‘How to Make Money with a Blog’ or ‘How to Make Money Online’ will benefit from watching this experiment unfold. This is exactly what was lacking when I started out. I got tons of screenshots of wealth thrown at me when someone wanted to sell me something, but no one really got into the details and laid it all out there.
- Anyone who isn’t looking for a ‘Get Rich Quick’ method, but who does want to know if they can create a real online business and build up an income that can support their lifestyle. If you have thought to yourself, ‘I’m willing to do the work, I know there is no get-rich-quick- easy button, but I just don’t know where to start and which method to choose‘ then definitely follow this blog and get some insight into how you can earn an income through blogging.
- Anyone who has been in Internet Marketing for a while, but has yet to see the level of income that would allow them to leave their job. With each post you will see time I am putting in, what I am able to get done each day, and how fast the business progresses. One thing that I feel is left out of a lot of IM products and courses is the day by day realistic growth that can happen. What I mean is, you’ll get tons of time frames, i.e. ‘Make $5,000 in 90 days’, but you won’t see the daily/weekly/monthly path that gets you there. A title like that will most likely just say, ‘Results May Vary’, which is true, but I always want to see more details of the best case scenario.
Updates and Follow Through
I’ll be updating this blog very frequently, so if you are interested in my 90 Days to Job-Ending Income Challenge then check back often.
