Early this morning, the stock market blew a fuse and tripped a circuit breaker after falling nearly 12 percentage points in minutes.
And in the last few weeks we’ve seen the stock’s freefall from a previous high of over twenty nine thousand down, teetering around twenty thousand meeting.
Lots of people are losing lots of money.
And if you were to take a look at my personal stock portfolio.
Oh, wait, it’s empty.
That’s right. I don’t have any stocks.
And if you remember from my last video, I talked about how we should focus on the things we can control and avoid the things we can’t control.
And one of the things I can’t control is how high or low my stocks go, but I can control investing in the right thing. And in this video, I’m going to break it down for you and show you how my little investments make lots of money. Each and every day.
Now, if I was to take a thousand dollars and invest it in the stock market, assuming an average rate of return of 8 to 10 percent, I’m going to average myself about 80 dollars per year. That means if I took that thousand dollars and left it alone for 10 years at the end of 10 years, I would have a whopping twenty one hundred and fifty nine dollars.
That’s not a big payoff for tying up my money Ten years.
Now, if I did the same thing, I invested one hundred thousand dollars in the stock markets at an average rate of return of 8 to 10 percent.
I would have two hundred and fifteen thousand nine hundred dollars at the end of ten years. Again, not a huge payoff for tying up one hundred grand for ten years. And that’s assuming the average rate of return. In the last few weeks, we have seen people lose up to 30 percent or more of their entire portfolio in just a few days.
Now, this is all fine and good for people who can afford to wait and tie their money up, but for the rest of the people who can’t afford to tie their money up. What is there to do? Well, about 20 years ago, when I was a broke kid, I started my first magic business where I perform magic shows and I had less than one hundred dollars in the bank. And I was doing magic shows and making some money on the side and doing OK. And one day I decided to save up one hundred and seventy dollars so that I could run an ad in the local parenting magazine. I ran that ad and found out that I could get lots of sales and lots more bookings and lots more money from a simple little ad. Now, at the time, that seemed like a huge investment.
And I did wait two to three months for the ad to come out. Fast forward a few years later, after I cut the marketing bug, I actually started doing paid ads online. Now he’s still making money as a magician, but we decided since we had a baby on the way and we weren’t married or established or anything like that, we needed to make money fast and we needed to learn how to do this. So I decided to start learning Internet advertising and I started running little ads on the Internet.
This was a lot different than the magazine ads. I ran for my magic business because online I could put an ad and get traffic instantly. That’s right. I could actually put up an ad and get visitors within minutes. And this is where I learned the moneymaking power of paid advertisements and learning.
The secret took me from a broke 19 year old kid to a 21 year old with a baby on the way and no money to making millions of dollars. Just a few short years later, all I had to do was find a group of people who were interested in something. By looking at what they searched for online, I then took that traffic, paid for it on Google and many other search engines for about two to 10 cents per visitor. I then took those visitors to a simple little web site that I set up in about forty five minutes that had various different affiliate offers on it.
Now those affiliate offers were companies that paid me based on what the visitors did. So they clicked an ad, filled out a form or bought a product. I would get paid. And the cool thing about paid ads is I didn’t need to have millions of dollars in capital before I started. That’s right. I could actually start these ads with as little as $5 a day, and I’d know if they were making money by the end of the day. And when I found an ad that worked and actually made money, which most of them did, I would then ramp that up, get more visitors and make more money. And I can actually watch it daily and doing this. I was able to take $50 and turn it into one hundred a thousand and turn it into two thousand.
And sometimes I was able to take three thousand and turn it into six thousand. All in the same day. And then I’d wake up tomorrow and do the exact same thing. And that’s exactly how I’ve been making money online for the last 20 years, sometimes making as much as a million dollars or more each year. And instead of having to tie up thousands of dollars in the stock market to see a tiny return, I could just invest five dollars and see what happens. And most of time, I was able to either break even or make a little bit of money.
Then I tweak the site, figure out what people responded to, dialing the profits and then ramp up the traffic. And once I figured this secret out, I could now build sites for all kinds of groups of people online that are looking for certain topics. And you can see here where I was actually buying the traffic. This account alone, one of many, I spent over $1 million on traffic. And again, remember, I didn’t just loaf out a million dollars. I went day by day, starting with $5 to see what would happen. So I spent a lot of money. Now, let’s take a look at some of the sites that I ran. Here’s one of the sites about tattoo designs. This site was very simple. I spent about 30 to 50 dollars a day and average about one hundred and thirty dollars a day or more. In revenue that’s like $70 a day profit.
Here’s another one I did where I got paid for car trading leads. Another one about credit cards that I made over one hundred thousand dollars with one about how to take care of your goldfish, of all things. Another side I made about cheap gas prices that raked it in big time. One about how to quit smoking. And lastly, my sight about fun little downloads where I got paid up to three dollars when people downloaded funnel cursors and images for their profile. So as you could see, this could be extremely profitable, but there is a little bit of a learning curve.
