You Are Not Thinking Big Enough
Pierre. I read your post and you just aren't thinking big enough. $100,000 a month. I found 5 companies who equal or top that using only Google's Adsense - the largest - Plentyoffish, a free online dating service, which makes $300,000 a month. Digg, an online news service generated by users, makes $250,000 a month. Shoemoney, an internet marketing blog, makes $140,000 a month. Weblogs, recently sold to AOL, was making $120,000 a month. You can read a case study of how they did it. FreeWebLayouts, a site that gives away free web layouts to people building their own websites, claims to make $100,000 a month, although there is some dispute that this is not all from Google's Adsense ads.
Actually, I would be happy with $10,000 a month. When we move to Buenos Aires, our monthly expenses will decrease, and we can live a good life of tango and great Argentinian wine on $120K a year. After all, Tim Ferriss learned to tango.
