Back in Thailand for round 2.
The usual comforts of beautiful beaches, friendly foreigners and delicious pad thai.
My second motorbike ride and a trip to the hospital.
Lots to cover this month…
Let’s get to it!
What You’ll Hear About This Month:
- The Traffic Numbers
- My fight against Thai motorbikes
- $100 Per Day Start Up Cash with Twitter
- The Income Numbers
- My October 9th Launch — Zero Hour Work Days
- Travel Pics
Traffic Numbers — Luke Warm in a Boiling Pot
So the traffic numbers are basically the same.
Take a look here:
Some may find that disappointing.
The truth is that I’m excited to watch the traffic boil over in the next couple months.
Why am I so cocky about the future?
My new launch starts on October 9th.
Not only is my product going to be HUGE.
…It’s also an opportunity for me to go on a traffic buying spree.
As usual, I will be buying solo ads for cheap, reliable visitors.
I’m also going to be exploring FB Ads this month.
This new traffic will be power building my email list.
What happens when new people join my list?
Aside from the obvious affiliate promotions, I also share my videos and posts to all new followers.
That means an upcoming burst on YouTube and my blog.
Ready for it…
However, I do not recommend this at home…
Buying traffic only works if you have a good funnel in place.
I will be carefully observing how visitors react to my new lead page, and make adjustments accordingly.
All of my results will either be shared on my channel, or inside my coaching member’s area.
Thailand strikes again — my burning hatred for Thai motorbikes
Earlier this year was my first visit to Thailand.
An amazing adventure, except for a head on collision with a bus.
What I’ve learned in September is that motorbikes are just not for me.
This time I was lucky not to crash into another vehicle, and instead slid off into a ditch.
Now I know you’re probably thinking…
- Stop drinking and driving
- Slow down and be more careful
- Pay attention to the road
The truth: I was soberly driving about 20km/hour while local Thai’s blew dust in my face.
This was my reaction to getting on:
Motorbikes are not for me….
Making Money on Twitter with This Simple $100/Day Method
I made two YouTube videos this month.
The first one was on How to Make Money with ClickBank.
It was good. Honestly, covers what you need to know about promoting clickbank products.
Some of the basic set up details, as well as some advanced strategies.
Highly recommended to take your affiliate marketing to the next level.
The second video is on how to make money with Twitter.
This is an exciting strategy for anyone without a budget.
Not only is this free, it’s also a great way to get some start up cash.
If you’re not as concerned about keeping costs low, you can also make this really lucrative by hiring out the work.
When you watch the video, you will learn:
- How to find real people with real problems.
- How to match them with a relevant offer.
- How to get workers (for $5) that do the work for you!
While I normally focus on funnel building strategies, this was a nice pattern break.
It’s so simple that anyone can do it.
The Income Numbers — What You Really Want to See
The dollars and cents 🙂

Expenses are the same as last month.
Was it a Good Month?
Let’s do the calculations.
$8,705.25 – $248 = $8,457.25
Grand Total = $8,457.25
A dip from last month.
Even though my income has taken a small hit, I’m actually more excited than ever.
Next month I launch my first product.
Then I’ll be buying massive amounts of traffic.
This will give me an opportunity to share the results with my tribe.
Whether it’s good or bad, I always like to share what happened.
Quote this month:
“It’s true that the best way to learn is from mistakes, but they don’t have to be yours”
– Warren Buffett.
The former wealthiest man in the world…
…that was only dethroned because of his charitable donations.
My intention is to continue as a crash test dummy for YOU.
I want my followers to know what I’m doing, and more importantly, I want them to know what happened.
A handful of months ago, I tried Kindle Publishing.
The results were terrible.
That doesn’t mean that Kindle doesn’t work — I know it can.
Maybe you can find an angle I didn’t use.
On the flip side, I am having success on YouTube and with my funnels.
Steal my strategies. I share them all.

My Launch on October 9th — What’s happening with it
It’s all ready to go.
Honestly, I am getting a little impatient.
The membership area is filled with videos that go through my main business.
It will also include free resources and some awesome OTO’s.
Right now I’m attracting affiliates to promote it.
This is the first time I’ve ever launched a product.
I am learning a TON.
Excited to launch, and also to share what I learn in the following months.
A taste of Thailand round 2:
Wondering whether you should go to Thailand….
Here’s a few snapshots of adventure:
Pic #1 — In the OutBack
This was a beautiful hiking destination to a waterfall.
Spiders and salamanders attacked me on the way.
Still worth it…
Pic #2 — Beach to Myself
Last time I went to the tourist beaches.
This month I stayed on Koh Lanta.
The island is filled with beaches lonely for some stragglers.
Happy to spend many hours on the sand.
Pic #3 — Koh Phi Phi
This small little island was a blast.
Lots of bars and restaurants, and easily one of my favourite viewpoints.
Close by to this island is Maya Bay.
The movie “The Beach” was filmed on that very landmass.
A lovely venture over to paradise.
Next Up — Bali in October
I’m writing this income report in Bali as we speak.
OMG… as the kids say.
Bali might be my favourite country yet.
As always, I will keep you posted.
Next month I look forward to sharing my life journey and product launch.
Do you have any questions or comments?
Please drop me a line.
It’s always good to connect…
…and I’m sure there’s something I could learn by speaking with you!
Till next time, Adios muchachos!
