If I had to start over today (and generate $5k a month)

   •  by rondouglas    •   65 Comments »

What I’m about to share with you is a proven strategy I’m considering personally coaching a small group of people to do until they’re earning $5k a month. IF you find this compelling and can see yourself doing it, leave a comment below and I will personally email you with further details.

If I think you’re a good fit to work with, I’ll consider you for my personal success group…

For most people, $5k a month is a full time income.  Especially if you can earn that from home and eliminate job related expenses like commuting or gasoline.

And even if you’re already earning money Online, just think of what an additional $5k per month will do for your lifestyle.  Imagine the freedom it will give you.

But when you think about it, $5k a month breaks down to just:

– 2 sales per day of a $100 product
– 4 sales per day of a $50 product
– 7 sales per day of a $25 product
– 17 sales per day of a $10 product

Or better yet, if you had a membership site where people pay you
monthly, you’d only need 200 members paying you $25 per month.

Sounds doable right? It absolutely is IF you can figure out two

1) What do people want that they’d keep paying for
2) How do you get your offer in front of those people

That’s it.  Once you have those two parts, everything else falls in
line.  You can easily figure out (or outsource) all the other parts
and minor obstacles like technical setup and sales copy.

So, if I had to start over today (and generate $5k a month) here’s
what I’d do…

1) Pick a market that has lots of passionate buyers (health,
wealth, relationships, hobbies).

Ideally you should be interested in the market also.

2) Find a niche problem that people are having in that market
– how to lose weight before my wedding
– how to work from home and spend more time with my kids
– how to earn extra money for retirement
– how to get my ex back
– how to improve my golf swing
– how to get people to visit my blog
– how to keep weeds out of my organic garden
– how to win my fantasy football league, etc

I’ll show you some easy ways to find niches like this using Google,
YouTube, “For Dummies” books, etc.

3) Create an inexpensive ($7 to $20) product providing a solution
to the problem
– ebooks and guides
– screen video tutorials
– interviews with experts
– software
– MP3s
– mindmaps, cheat sheets, templates, etc

Any or all of those will do well.  Whatever it takes to help the
customer best solve their niche problem.

You simply make an outline of what they need to know and organize
your product into small chunks.  Then you piece it all together.
You can knock this step out in a weekend or less.

Once you learn how easy it is to create a product and sell it
Online, you’ll never have to worry about money again.  You can
always create a new product and earn money.

4) Put up a web page describing the problem, explaining how your
product is the solution, and why they should buy now.

This is where most people struggle but it’s not that difficult.  I
have a simple template you can use that gives you proven examples
and makes it super easy.  Plus, my copywriting guy would help you
with this.

I actually have a team of people who can help you with each step of
the process to build long term income.

5) Find established marketers in your niche and make them an offer
they can’t refuse to get them to promote your product.

In this step, you’re going to completely sacrifice your initial
low-priced product to build a list of customers.  The real money
you’ll make will come from upsells, future products, promoting
affiliate products, membership sites, etc.

Once you’ve built your list, you can do whatever you like.

My process would be:

– Give 100% of the sale to those who are promoting your product.
– Have an upsell for a higher priced product or for a $1 trial to
your membership site.  You can pay 50% commissions on this as well
as a strong incentive.
– Give a free sample of the product to those who don’t buy in order
to build your list and have another chance to convert the free
subscribers into customers.

The bottom line is, you’ll have a high converting product and a
proven way to get free traffic to it.  And most importantly you’ll
have an email list of future buyers and be able to generate your
own traffic going forward.

This will put you on the map and you’ll find that other affiliates
will jump to promote your product once they know it converts and
you have the ability to reciprocate.

At the end of the day, the real money in this business is made from
relationships.  People sell all types of different strategies that
may or may not work, but creating products, getting affiliates, and
list building is the bread and butter of 90% of marketers out there.

I also have 4 other killer strategies for getting free traffic that
I will share with my exclusive coaching students.

If you’re interested in working with me personally to set
everything up, REPLY and let me know.  We can chat about what
you’ve already been working on and I can see if you’d be a good fit.

The reason I’m being selective is because success has a lot to do
with mindset and I don’t want to waste your time if I don’t think I
can help you.

Talk soon,


P.S. Even if creating a product is not your thing, I’ll show you
how to build a list using affiliate products or products you can
get the resale rights to. After 11 years in this business, I know
every shortcut there is.

    Ron, I’ve been following you for a long time and I know you’re pretty good at this stuff. I’ve been struggling to make money from home ever since my disability and I’ve been buying one product after the next. I think one-on-one coaching with you is what I really need. Please send me more details.

    • Adrian Brown says:

      I am online for six yrs now and still struggling to survive. My wife has virtually given upon me and reminded me every day how long I am trying to make money online. You must understand by now that I have no intension to give up, if it take me the last day to my grave. Let us see how this will go, I willing to be coached right now

  2. Madlin says:

    Ron, this sounds fantastic (at the right price of course). Count me in!

  3. Katie says:

    Hi Ron,

    Just got your email. The reason I want to get your coaching is because I’m a stay at home mom and my husband got laid off last year. Earning $5,000 a month would help us pay our mortgage and be a major blessing.

    Please add me to the list.


  4. Julian says:

    Hey Ron, this sounds like it has a lot of potential.

    I would love to work with you 🙂

  5. Paul Serban says:

    It wouldn’t be welcome assistance from your side, even if it would be only by email, I’m getting pretty hard with my site.

  6. Jim says:

    Good post Ron. It’s funny how good solutions are always “simple” but hard to do. For example, the solution to giving up smoking is “simple” – just stop putting cigarettes in your mouth. Simple solution, but hard to do. I would love a mentor who can help me to get going; this sounds very much like the thing I have been looking for.

  7. Vondre says:

    I talk to Ron on a weekly basis and he is definitely the real deal. If you have the opportunity to work with him, jump in and experience the benefits. You’ll be at 5k per month before you know it! Good Success!

  8. Wade Matteson says:

    Ron, I’m 61 and just got downsized. Been working hard, heading for a frugal retirement. I was told by my boss I’m the best guy they’ve ever had in retention , several times. Then the bombshell… We have to let you go. We can’t afford you, it’s a financial decision and our support staff will do your job. Sales are just too slow. OMG! Doing great, best we’ve ever had… Your fired! No they said, not fired, just downsized. Well the results are the same and retirement looks gloomy as the job market is dismall, especially for one in my age group. And all my savings were eaten up by medical bills to support my now late wife, who had a liver transplant that finally gave out.
    I’d love to earn enough to thumb my nose at Social security, at least until full retirement age of 66. And be able to “retire” with my new wife and be able to enjoy life not just squeak by. I’d also love to help others to do the same. When I saw that suggestion in your list of notches… It and weight loss struck a note with me… They are me. Can you help me and not just be another bill I can’t afford?

  9. LB says:

    Hey Ron,

    I’d like to be a part of your coaching group. I have a product that isn’t really selling and is only making a couple hundred a month. I’d definitely like to take that to the next level. I feel like I’m headed in the right direction but just need to make some tweaks. Definitelty would like to be a part of your coaching…and learn how make that magic number – $5K per month online.

  10. John says:


    You need to tell people (us) how much you are going to charge instead of getting people’s hopes up and then slam them with a big hugh FEE!!!

    Just my two cents worth…

    • rondouglas says:

      I don’t know yet John. As I said, not everyone will be accepted. It’s probably not for you if you think I’d be slamming you with a fee instead of considering it an investment in yourself. I don’t want anyone’s last dollar.

      What is a huge fee in your opinion?

  12. Roy A. Jones says:

    Hello Ron,
    It was back in April of 2010 when I was wondering how to set up a website. Then you came along and I became part of your Inner Circle. Well 2 and a half years later I’m still struggling to make a living online. I know I need a mentor and a solid direction to travel. I keep getting side tracked. I know this business takes hard work and you need to choose what you are going to specialize in, ie. listbuilding, SEO etc, and stick with it until you are successful. I tend to go in to many different directions. So no begging from me because right now I’m to busy creating a website and a product. All I can say is if you are going to stay by their side until they are making $5,000 a month then I congratulate every one you choose because yes they will make at least that amount.

    To Everyones Success

    bt223@sbcglobal.net. It sounds good. I would like more information

  14. David L says:

    Hi Ron,

    Your offer sounds good. I’ve been trying to earn/generate an extra income online for a few years,
    not much success…I have not been coached or mentored. Maybe that’s what I need. I would like to
    know details. Thanks!

  15. Sean says:

    Hello Ron, I’m half way through a good course at the moment, but is more of a strategy for building a long term business and using more effective Marketing in the short term designed with the long term goal in mind.

    I’m open to the idea of learning from you, to help the long term goal and make some cash now!!! I’ve only bought one of your products, but I’m aware of the quality you deliver, so very interested in learning more!

  16. Henry says:

    Hi Ron, I’m very interested and ready to do what I have to do! Yeah, times are tough for everyone but people are still making money! Sometimes we just need a little coaching to reach the next level! I’m ready to Rock and make the investment in myself and my own future…..

  17. Jone Robbins says:

    Hi Ron this sounds very exciting. I’ve been on Video Forward and I’m ready for the next step. Please consider me. Thanks

  18. Rotimi Adejumo says:

    Hello Ron,

    I would like to know more about the opportunity to work with you. What do I need to do and what will you do for me. I have been involved in internet marketing in the last 2 years. I have had modest success as an Amazon associate. I have gone past the ‘shiny syndrome phase’. I would like to take this to the next level. I am focussed, teachable and hard working.

    I would be delighted if you can work with me.



  19. Mary Sloane says:

    Hi Ron

    Been following you via the internet for a awhile ow and I know you are one of the “good” ones. You are someone who is authentic and in this world of cads and charlatans that is a wonderful quality. I sent you a long email explaining how I thought combining some of our skills and talents might prove beneficial to many.

    Looking forward to your reply and if that is not our journey than I know that whoever you work with will be well served. I think there are many like the gentleman above who are being shuffled out of their companies just before they can retire leaving them in a terrible fix. We can k make a huge difference for them. But people need health as well as money. Together we can bring them both.

    On my journey I hope our paths can cross.


  20. Tom says:

    Pretty compelling offer, Ron.

    You’ve been there and done it, so it makes sense for you to mentor us who want to join that $5K/month or more club.

    I’m looking for a breakthrough…let us know more.

  21. steve says:

    Hey Ron,

    This is the exact strategy that I’m trying to set up for myself now to kcik off my IM career. I’m finding holes though in the instructions & explanations of others in how to get it all set up. Sounds like your cours would go a long way to fixing that. This method really excites me. I already have topic ideas & am a good writer, so with the right gaps filled in, I could see this being a success.

  22. Susan says:

    Hi Ron,
    Your suggestion is very intriguing. I’m interested because I want to retire from my corporate job (I’m almost 62), but we have too many debts at present. I have a seasonal business that does well, and I do some writing on the side. Getting tips from simeone with your experience would be a blessing.

  23. Hi Ron. I too have been following you for a long time and even purchased your products/membership sites. I need help. I have a great idea, but I need help. I’m in if applicable.

  24. Nice work Ron. I have a couple of product ideas from listening to a Bill Myers recording recently

  25. D.E. Boone says:

    This seems like a formula that could really produce great results. I am very interested

  26. Rookie Johnson says:


    I happen to be looking for a mentor and I came across your email.
    Looking forward to the details on your offer.


    Just call me Rookie Johnson

  27. Tracey says:

    With economy continuing to tumble, I really need to take on extra work to make ends meet. Would love to work with you in the near future. I am a single mom and have no other income except for my working. Sometimes I have to choose food or gas. Thank you for your offer and consideration.

  28. John says:

    Hi Ron,

    We have communicated together over the years starting when you first offered your first program for free. Up until now I have been at home with the kids full time but my youngest has now reach Pre-school age giving me a small window to sort of breath. Let me know what you are proposing in terms of financial requirements so i may understand whether this could be in the cards for me?

  29. Gerald says:

    This sounds really interesting, email me more information about the cost and how to get started!!!

  30. Gerald says:

    Ron, Thanks for the email, i’m very interested in being mentored, please email me more information about the cost and the process to get involed….Thanks!!!!

  31. Waalee says:

    Hello Ron,

    I think I’m a good fit for your personal success group…

    I have identified and I’m well versed in the niche that I want to begin earning money Online with. My problems are:

    I don’t know if I should sell the product or create a membership site where people pay me

    The product is an information product that can be sold in three parts or can easily be a membership site.

    I know that there is a passionate buyer interest in the market (probably about 80% of America) for this service.

    Most of the site preparation I can do my self, some of the obstacles like technical setup and sales copy I would have to outsource.

    I would welcome your help.



  32. Ramona says:


    Thank you for your recent email and for the opportunity to potentially participate in your new venture.

    I replied to your email with details about myself.

    Hope to hear from you soon.


  33. Damián says:

    Sounds good. I think this is what many people would want to have as real money-making education with a real coach. Thanks for the opportunity Ron!

  34. Shelley Dayman says:

    Ron…recovering from major surgery, not able to work outside my home…so need to generate money from home with a legal, option. I’ve been following you for awhile and would welcome any help you can share with me…thanks

  35. Adam says:

    Hello Ron,
    I have actually meet you in Raleigh,NC some years ago, along with Vondre’,& Ty. Have followed all three of you guys for sometime. Each of you always have something going and good ideas. (Vondre sure likes cakes doesn’t he..:)..).
    Anyway, I can relate to the gentleman above like many people these days…laid off, downsized..or whatever the case…no money coming and bills still to pay. I have just recently been released from doctors care for a long term injury and two operations. I am 61 like the gentleman above and the available work for anyone that is older, plus an injury, is not promising; and if you haven’t been working, even if you have been injured on the job, you can not get unemployment and you really hate taking SS early.
    Enough of that. I have had my own business’ in the past and look to do it again. Not only for myself, but for my grandson, so as to leave him a legacy. As mentioned have followed all 3 of you guys and have even mentioned to others how I think each of you guys help others as I have given thought of using the systems each of you teach now that I am able to earn money w/o complications.
    Looking forward to working with you and hopefully Vondre’ and Ty. Money online has been,is now, and will be the future.

  36. Carlos says:

    Ron, I live in third world country and its hard out here. I m looking to make a living out of the internet marketing and I need a micro step by step process to get this done. Even if its by marketing other peoples products you still need the know how to do that and I would like to learn.

  37. Felipe says:


    I will be counting the days and the hours and the minutes for we start it. Cheers!

  38. Kindle Webber says:

    Hello Ron,

    Working with you and your team would be a privilege. Your expertise, experience, praises and pitfalls would be a great value add in preparing me for success. Your coaching, and demonstrated results is the energy needed to take my business to the next level!!!


  39. Elizabeth says:

    Hi Ron,
    This sounds like a wonderful opportunity!! I’m on disability and the extra money would help immensely. I worked most of my life. The last 10 years of work were in management. I believe I’d be a good candidate for your project. I hope you consider me.

  40. Marcus says:


    I read your email, very interesting topic and would love to work with you on this project and learn.

    Thank You

  41. jose says:


    Very interested, I speak and write spanish as well, which could be a good fit as the latino market in USA is huge

  42. Doreen Stewart says:

    Dear Ron,

    I have been one of your long time followers, enjoying what you have to say or pass on.
    I am a hard working woman, looking for a way to better my Family, Friends and those in need.
    I would really like to be able to do more for them while working with you and learning. Thanks
    for your time.


  43. Max Downs says:

  44. Hi Ron,

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to take our games to the next level. Per the email, you have my “pick me” individual sales pitch in your inbox :).

    Wishing the best to all who submitted their requests also!


  45. Ian Freeman says:

    Hi Ron

    Your offer of mentoring/coaching to 5K per month sounds like a dream to me.
    I have made some money online selling products as an affiliate, but product creation, JVing and list building are the areas I really want to nail too.

    Definitely interested.

    Best wishes


  46. Bob says:

    Sounds like a great opportunity, Ron. Your stuff has been great so far! Looking forward to this…

  47. jamel says:

    Ron, I’m interested in seeking your assistance. Only thing I need to know if it’s suitable for my budget. This is a life changing opportunity for someone looking to earn extra money online and learn some more untapped strategies in internet marketing. Hope to hear from you soon.

  48. Eugene Rodrigues says:

    Hi Ron, I have been trying to work your system but with no results yet, so would like very much to be coached by you if possible till I see results which would make me confident in your system.
    Cheers and warm regards

  49. Sabir says:


    I’m a huge admirer of your success. I heard your story on mixergy. I also started out in sports, full swimming scholarship to Stanford, then worked in finance like you. I’m currently running an commerce division for scoutmob.com in Atlanta. I’d be honored to work with you and learn from the best.

    Many thanks,


  50. ADELEYE says:


  51. Ron…how you doing buddy. I have read most of the comments on your Blog and what struck me most besides people genuinely looking for help to take their businesses to the next level or looking for help to get started with the right foundation is the dates of these comments…I see September 23 to October 1 and I am asking “How come I didn’t get this email 2 weeks ago. Yes, Yes, Yes I need the help…I could use the coaching and benefit from your experience and expertise. You are absolutely correct when you say its 90% about “Relationships”. I have to be part of this group. What would be the cost?

  52. Ted Wacholtz says:

    I am part of a GROUND LEVEL INTERNET COMPANY (Founding Member) that is about to Launch but not just yet. Your help and coaching from someone who has learned it by HARD KNOCKS of what to do and what not to do, is a credit to not only your success but a tribute to your determination to succeed, with HARD WORK and someone committed to LONG-TERM SUCCESS.

    I’m excited that you are offering this opportunity for 50 special people who are motivated and dedicated to success and the desire to succeed, with very hard work and and a willingness to be open to learn and of course take constructive critique from a Successful leader and business success.

    I’m 63 1/2 and a 100% Disabled Veteran. I have had successes in the past online but not the long-term that you have had and the success to the degree you have had and that is what intrigued me to be honored to work with you, if I’m fortunate enough to be selected in the very special group of 50 men and women.

    Sincerely, Ted Wacholtz, Boothbay, Maine

  53. Bernadette says:

    Am interested please count me in, thanks

  54. Joe Crousore says:

    Hi Ron, thank you for the e-mails that you supply and send out I read each one in hopes of gaining more knowledge. I have yet to have any success on an online business or venture and I am in my 5th year of trying, I have never even made one dollar except for selling an item now and then on an auction site. My wife and I struggle everyday trying to make ends meet and always late on some type of bill, and even with all of the stress I still continue to think that I may be able to make some money online to help with these bills but I never do.Being rich and or even making 5000.00 a month would be nice dont get me wrong, but 500 to a 1000 would be the best start for me if that happened I know I could work to produce the 5000.00 if not more. I am on disability because of some breathing issues but with all that being said agian Thank you for all your information that you have provided and I will continue to try and implement it.

  55. Patrick says:

    Definitely interested in getting to the next level

    Thank you

  56. Hi Ron,
    great content. inspiring. I need accountability but can give focus, time, , resources and hard work. I almost have my solar cook book finished, which I want to launch in a week or 2 using some of the methods discussed in your write a book course. We could put ads to your course on thank you page, etc. Happy Birthday and enjoy Vegas and family.

  57. luke says:

    sounds great. would love to hear from you and work with someone who’s already been there. just joined videoforward and am still working thru the material. i’m looking for a mentor, please contact me…
    thank you!


  58. Shayne Lesley says:

    I am definetly a newbie and would love to work with you !

  59. Valeria says:

    Hi, Ron!

    Heard about you from the Warrior Forum, where I lurk.

    Love to work with you.


  60. RonnyG says:

    Hey Ron….Just started following you in the last 2 weeks….I have been in the IM business for almost 8 years.

    I have made affiliate sales with CB products…but not much. I did have a very good business with my ticket web site…but that all went to hell when the lead generating system I was using went to hell…was making $6,500 net per month.

    Now from all my stuff am making less than $500 per mouth. So I am now convinced that a list is the best and maybe the “ONLY way to not be reliant on Goggle and other more” in the main stream” traffic getters!

    I have looked at everything thing that I can find that you are doing with IM’ing…

    Man you take every opportunity to either get new people to your list or to make a sale…

    I could probable get buy with out working directly with you; because if you following your “stuff” most of it is their for the taking if you are thinking and following the bread crumb trail…

    Of course it would be so much easer/better if we were working together!

    I believe that you will get AT LEAST on new idea from working with me that will make it worth your while.

    Thanks For Your Consideration

  61. Dan says:

    Hi Ron I share the same sentiments and agony with all the comments posted above.I have been trying to get a foothold on the internet for the past 3 years and I am not any wiser from the position before I started.I have bought numerous programs only to see ALL of them going down the drain.So I believe I require a good coach and mentor.Someone mentioned it’s a matter of mindset.Could you be the one who could be ending my misery of achieving success on the internet?My budget and resources are limited,though.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

  62. Carol says:

    I came upon you through the Warrior Forum and I enjoyed a lot of your posts there and I looked you up and found this website. I am extremely new to Internet Marketing and I have a strong desire to succeed. For my family and also for myself. I have raised two kids and never really went for my goals/dreams and it is now that time. I will be successful and I will work hard for it. I would love to work with you, if you still have spots available. I am trying to get out of the research stage and into ACTION. I have been met with a lot of “can’t’s, no’s, not possible, naive pipe dream” and I refuse to accept them. Hope to hear from you. Thanks.
