How I Made $860,538.38 PROFIT in 4 Months!

  • Published on : Feb 18 2008

First off, I would like to make it clear that this post is NOT to impress you, but to impress upon you what’s possible! This is a quick review on how I went from one of my worst years of making money online to my best year, and all it took was one big idea, one web site and several hundred hours of effort along with many sleepless nights. This is “How I Made $860,538.38 Profit in 4 Months!“.

Time and time again, I talk about how you must change your marketing niche every once in a while to continuously make new money online. Over the years I have done everything from content web sites, to sweepstakes and freebie type sites, to running my own affiliate programs and even permission based email marketing. In early 2004 I had one of my best years with making money online, then later on in the year things started to slack off and this continued on through most of 2005. At the time I wasn’t making much money and it was quite depressing. It’s very tough to get back into the groove when you hit a few underachieving projects in a row. In short, I was in a dip… and at the bottom of my latest successful wave. It wasn’t until October 2005 that I came up with my next big idea that would soon bring me my best months and year!

Social networking was just starting to catch fire and for months I knew there was a way to profit from it, but I just hadn’t come up with an idea yet. MySpace had millions of users on their network 24 hours a day, there had to be a way to take advantage of this. Soon enough I realized, instead of trying to sell to all of these users, why not offer them something for free. I ran through some ideas and came up with my own site to provide free content for social network users. To make a long story short, my site and my content went viral extremely fast. Instead of having users upload their own content or have to search around for what they were looking for, I provided everything for free. In no time I was receiving thousands of users to my site daily. At max points I was pushing up to 180,000+ unique visitors per day, while pushing TERABYTES of data bandwidth. Imagine hosting thousands of images, viewed by millions across several different social networks!

Just two months after going live with my new site, I was starting to accumulate some amazing hosting costs. Imagine the cost on hosting thousands of widgets, text applications and images, which are loaded millions of times a day across social networks like MySpace! The only reason why I was able to afford these insane hosting costs, was because of the massive volume of users I was receiving back to my site, not only through social networks, but also from Google and other search engines. You only need a small percentage of a very big number to click on ads, fill out surveys or take any action, to make money. In two short months I went from having a single dedicated server to having over TEN, then with the insane bandwidth costs added in I was paying up to $12,000 a month. At this time I was currently with, and leasing all of my servers. Since I’m not a tech/programmer type guy, I also had a server management team watching my servers constantly to make sure they were always running, just being down for a few minutes would have lost $100s of dollars. This server management team was not part of EV1Servers, and cost $1000 a month to manage all of the servers, and keep the servers balancers in place. By the end of the third month, I talked with my server management team and we decided it was time to for me to invest in my own servers and take out the middleman for hosting. I went on to order 17 servers from Dell, which are all held and managed in a data center now.

On average, my site was receiving around 100,000 unique visitors per day, and I was generating most of my ad revenue through Yahoo Publisher Network, ValueClick Media and CasaleMedia. It wasn’t until a year later that I would start testing CPA offers on the site. To my surprise, the CPA offers from networks like NeverBlueAds worked extremely well. Originally I had stayed away from promoting a few of their offers because I thought they were over saturated and wouldn’t convert. I finally took their advice and listed a few on the site and to this day they are still pushing some great earnings through the site.

Back in April, I wrote a post asking the question… “To Sell, or Not to Sell?“… This was a question I had to ask myself when I was approached by a company that wanted to merge/purchase my MySpace resource site. I not only turned down their seven-figure deal, but I was lucky enough to not be one of the many sites screwed by the company, as they tried buying many other sites as well. Once acquired by the company, they would wreck the site with adult-like video content and I heard from several people on how they got screwed out of their owed money and contracts.

Two years, and over seven-figures later… my little site idea that rapidly became one of my most profitable ideas yet, is still running strong. Despite the fact that I really haven’t touched the site in several months, it’s still receiving over 25,000 uniques per day and still making a decent amount of change.


As I mentioned earlier, three of the main initial revenue sources I monetized my site with were ValueClick Media, CasaleMedia and Yahoo Publisher Network. While I did use other programs such as NeverBlueAds and Google Adsense later on, these three programs were heavily used during months of peak traffic. As for promotion costs of the site, during this three month period, there were none. No PPC Advertising either, everything was viral traffic and a couple links off my other sites. This write up focused on how I made $860,538.38 PROFIT in 4 months. The site is now well over two years old and has since earned over seven figures in profit/earnings.

ValueClick Media is a company that buys your web site advertising space on a CPM basis. From my stats chart below, you can see the monthly increase in revenue went from $243.63 to nearly $30,000 a month.

CasaleMedia provides the same type of service as ValueClick Media, but are more strict with acceptance into their program. They also have higher CPM rates, but usually purchase a smaller percentage of your ad space. Peak earnings with CasaleMedia were around $7,000 a month.

One of the major reasons for my dramatic increase in income, was due to the release of the Yahoo Publisher Network. This program, run by Yahoo, is basically their response to Google Adsense. Like Adsense, you are paid an unknown percentage for each click you send to the contextual advertisements displayed on your site.

It wasn’t til about a year after launching the site, that I would start testing with CPA offers from NeverBlue. To my surprise, the majority of offers I listed on the site performed extremely well. Even though I thought the market was over saturated on these offers, there was still a high demand. With the new revenue generated from NeverBlue, the site was able to pull in another $60,000+.

For any of the doubters, or photoshop addicts… Just to prove my legitimacy, take a look at the video below!

  • Valued Affiliates

    Great inspirational post for everyone that is trying to achieve their dreams with affiliate marketing! Congrats on all your success Zac.

  • Kris Jones


    One of the coolest affiliate marketing stories I've ever heard – the fact that you earned that kind of money in such a short amount of time without expending anything on PPC traffic or blackhat SEO tricks is outstanding!

    Can't wait to hear more about this during ASW next week.


    • Zac Johnson

      Much appreciated. It was quite an amazing task, when you see that it was done without paid promotion through ppc marketing or other unethical tactics. Affiliate Summit will be great! I'm looking forward to meeting all of my blog readers this weekend.

  • Sucker


    Just kidding, nice job! It's refreshing to see a "real" post about long hours and sleepless nights leading to a big payoff. (Unlike so many of the "hey I started a blog and got rich" hype posts.)

  • Jason Boom

    Excuse me…don't step there on it. That's my jaw on the floor.

    :) Good work!

  • B-Man

  • Affiliate Confession

    That's a complately insane amount of money to earn in 4 months. Way to go.

  • Vinny

    Zac- awesome job man! I know one day you will be interviewed on 60 Minutes (like Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg was last month)

    Question- Did it take you a lot of time to gather / create all the content on your MySpace sites? From visiting them, they are quite massive with content so I was curious how long it took to put them together.


    • Zac Johnson

      Thanks Vinny. I spent so many sleepless nights working on this site, it was definitely my biggest site yet… as much time consuming as well. Although, when you are working so hard on something and seeing results, it's almost more fun than anything else.

      • waisi

        WOW made > $860,000.00 in 4 months, very impressive and motivative!

        Would appreciate if you could let me have the link to the site that enable you to make that impressive figure.

  • Tom Beaton

    Truly impressive. This is a great success story.

  • browie

    Very impressive. Another guy that got into one of these hot items at the beginning. That's a big reason you kicked ass. Early on social networks and early on YPN.

  • Marc Artigas

    Hi Zac! That's awesome good job.



  • nani

  • Teach Me $$

    Hi Zac,

    Well sometimes you have to step up to the accquistions from other people, and in the process give hope and tips and tricks to many other people.

    I also started on (through your refferal) after reading some posts on how to achieve success on cpa networks.

    Keep the knowledge flowing, and do not worry about the 20 something entering in the IM area.


  • Start Blogging

    Great post Zac. Looking at that check is extremely motivational!

  • Jeremy Palmer

    Congrats! Way to stay ahead of the curve. I'm sure you're already brewing your next seven figure idea..

    All the best,


  • Richer

    Nice stats, have you had any success since YPN has been acting up, why did it stop at 300,000k? Would you want to continue and make more?

  • -G–

    I'm confused. What was the content on the site?

  • Sportsrmylife


    My question to you is why have you saved those six figure check photos for now? I mean you are in shoemoney territory there. I want to see what happens when word about those pictures get sent around the blogworld. What is your myspace page? I would like to see what you are using there and how it is set up.

    • Zac Johnson

      I thought long and hard about releasing this post. While making a decent amount of money in the quiet is fun, I'm also looking to help others make money online as well. Releasing this info only helps and legitimizes my earnings statements and advice of this blog.

  • Royal Radande

    Nice stuff Zac. This is definitely an inspiration for all of us.

  • andrew wee

    Hey Zac,

    Cool post.

    Why not get wires for payments above $10k?

    Seemed like it might be simpler to handle.

    • Zac Johnson

      But being able to post a check is soo much cooler! :) I do mostly wire transfers and direct deposit now.

      • andrew wee

        Good idea.

        I can't stand the idea of having good ol USPS lose a valuable check in the mail!

      • Sportsrmylife

        Showing that check is so much better than saying that you make such and such amount of money. Was this a one time swing in earnings and how much is a steady income now from your myspace page?

        • Zac Johnson

          This was a high point for the site, though it still makes several thousands a month in profit.

  • Shane

    You may have covered this elsewhere, but why YPN and not AdSense? I've tried YPN on several different sites and never got anywhere near what I was making with AdSense.

    • Zac Johnson

      Yahoo was pulling much better numbers at the time. Several months later I switched back and fourth between the two. Google Adsense earnings from the site were well over $50,000 as well. Best to test both programs on your site and see which converts best with your traffic.

  • Big Poppa


    Those screenshots are 2 years old? Your not a one hit wonder are you?

    • Zac Johnson

      Ye of little faith… I've been posting earnings from many different programs since this blog went live. Once does not thrive for 11 years in this industry, being a one hit wonder.

  • Zug LinkBait

    wow……the little affilaite engine that could……..I think i can….i think i can…

    Can't you just feel the inspiration in the air. Thanks for sharing! linkbait comedy crew

  • iantrepreneur

    “super affiliate dollars” I like that catch phrase! damn nice work Zac! See you at the summit! great work!

  • Steven

    I tried adding up the numbers but they just don't add up. When you say profit, I assume you mean gross minus expenses (ie server costs, any other costs such as PPC if any, etc etc).

    And since this was only a "4 month" span, I assume you meant from Jan 06 to April 06 (since your YPN account listed up to April 06). The only thing is your YPN didn't list dollar amount for January and the other screenshots didn't list April's earnings and went beyond the 4 month span.

    I mean it's obvious you made a lot and theres no doubt there but I couldn't make it how the income was broken down to be PROFIT. There was no mentioning of expenses vs gross and the exact 4 month period. Could you clarify =]

    • Big Poppa

      Yes very good point Steven, could you clarify how this could possibly all be profit??

      • Vinny

        Don't you think Zac deserves the benefit of the doubt? He's not trying to trick us with his numbers. I wouldn't be so concerned with the actual dollar amount. I for one am brainstorming ideas on how I could possible do something one day this successful!

        • Steven

          I wasn't doubting him. Apparently you failed to read my entire comment. I stated that I don't doubt that he made a lot of money. I just like to make sense of it. I don't care if you are concerned with actual dollar amounts or not, but it's interesting to know (in my opinion). Sometimes, the minor details really do help you see the big picture. In this case knowing what his expenses were can possibly in some way help you better understand how he was able to profit so much.

    • Zac Johnson

      Easy to clarify. On top of the big 3 programs listed, there were also several other programs/ad networks running on the site at the same time, such as Google Adsense, Incentaclick, AdBrite and many other cpa offers. These offers alone, more than covered the cost of server hosting. I could have went into more detail on these, but it would have just flooded the post with way too much information. I focused on the top three revenue sources and made sure the extra revenue from all other sources were able to cover the server costs.

  • Edgar

    Very impressive,


    I use all your tips on all my websites. I am not making big numbers like you but its a start.

    First of all, congratulations on your success – that's what I call major bank :-). What I like so much about this post (outside of that fat YPN check) is your admission to hitting a big slump after your initial success and having the persistence to make another move to change things up. Very inspiring to me personally.

    Any chance you will do a super affiliate guide on creating profitable resource sites?

      Sites are still doing well. Keep in mind this blog is less than a year old, it's not like I could have reported on these earnings when they were happening.

    The good ol' days of YPN. You can't make anywhere close to those amounts anymore. I have been in the same niche as you were Zac. I'm pretty close to your site's listing for THAT popular keyword on the SERPs =) Social networking is still profitable but you have to work really really hard to get close to 300k uniques/day. I'm sure you know about the site I'm talking about P****.com. I do IP delivery while running YPN and run Adsense for International users.

    • Andrew fashion

      What site do you run? You talking about the term "myspace layouts"?

      • Bill

        Yes, same niche as I’m above your site’s listing Andrew. I’m now ranking higher than you =) I know you were making like $6k/day back in Jan 06 with YPN.

    QUESTION: First, thanks for the info, Zac. Even if, as some say, it is 2 years old, I still see the value in it. Ok, so maybe we'll make $200k in 4 months now and not $800k, boohoo. ;-) My question is… how did you initiate the initial bursts of traffic that helped it go viral… it couldn't possibly be all organic SEO all the way… were there off-page factors, initial joint venture deals, the use of friend adders on various social networking sites.

    How did you get that initial burst of traffic that, ultimately, went viral? Thanks.


    • Zac Johnson

      I covered this in the follow up post to this one. Once social networks started grabbing the content, it just went viral…FAST!

    Inspirational. Motivational… but, I'm confused. And I'll tell you why.

    My first thoughts were wow, that's awesome. Congrats to you, in both the scale of your rewards and the tenacity of your efforts.

    My second thoughts were what do I learn from this. And that's where I'm caught up. I'm new to the game. I'm making coffee change with affiliate marketing through PPC advertising. And I'm not quite sure the business model on this one.

    You ran a… my space forum? You were providing content, people were leaving comments, and you were moderating the comments for appropriate content… and the monetization occured through ad revenue? What's the address of this money-maker? My eyes are blurring and I couldn't find it, or perhaps you haven't released it.

    Hi Zac,

    I noticed you deleted my comments from this post. Why? The questions were very fair and deserved an answer. Someone claimed you did something and you haven't responded except to either ignore or delete the comments relating to it.

    If you are going to put something out there, be prepared to discuss it.

    My questions agin were:

    [1] Where did the testimonials come from?

    [2] Same question regarding the "Before and After" pictures

    [3] Nickycakes claims the landing page design in your post and most of it's content were "stolen" (his words) from one of his associates. He makes a compelling post on his blog. How do you respond? Nickycakes blog post:

    I only learned of you last night from a tweet by Shoemoney. And I learned of Nickycakes by reading the comments in this post (comments that have since been removed).

    Thank you.

    • Jeff

      Hi Zac,

      I would also appreciate your comments on this as I learned about it a while ago. I've been following your blog as I'm trying to get started in Affiliate Marketing. I try to not jump to conclusions, but I'd like to hear what you have to say.

      I've read a lot of bad press on affiliate marketing and I'd like to think a 'Super Affiliate' wouldn't resort to this type of conduct.



    • Mark

      User error on my part. I thought I was posting under the "Create Killer Landing Pages" post. I see that my original post is still under the comments section of that post.

      If I were able, I'd delete my comments under this post since they are wrongly filed.

  • pluu

    This is one example of success, but the yield of successful sites from your stack of ideas is very low.

    I think streamlining and accelerating the website development process would be of greater value tool. This way, you could come up with an idea, and put it out there. idea after idea. Or alternatively, a way of filtering out your bad concepts, that way you only spend your valuable time on the good ideas.

    Might sound rudimentary, but when I come up with a way to make this easier, you'll be reading my post on how much I made. Until then, I'll keep brainstorming.

    Great work Zac

  • Zeca

  • Surveys

    Inspirational and motivational, thanks for posting this.

    It seems to me if you want to make the big money online you just need to put in the time and find an un-tapped idea. The 'million dollar web page' (the selling pixel thing) really epitomizes this; he really did make a million dollars, and now there hundreds of others trying to do the same, but they'll never succeed as its already been done.

    BTW I don't think its sounds like you bragging at all, I think you should post monthly about your earnings, I enjoy reading about how much others are earning online!

    using images next to ads to increase click thru rates.

  • Joe

    Considering the significant earnings you achieved through this one web site you are quite low key about the phenomenal earnings you have made. Again the reason why you were successful is because like so many other successful internet marketers you found a new way to target a very large market. Interestingly enough your target market MySpace has fallen out of favor now which shows how important timing is in success.

  • Vito Glazers

    Zac this post is legit. Affiliates need to keep an open mind about what converts. Referring to MONETIZATION IS KEY – people really leave money on the table all the time. That is where a good network can come in handy. If you're dealing with a network that knows what they are talking about like ours, we can help guide you into the right offers for your site. So many times people ignore my advice and run adwords or something "safe" but as soon as they split test and see what's possible they always make the switch. Even 10% ROI change can be a HUGE difference, so make sure you're maximizing your opportunities because none of them will last forever.

    AWESOMELY inspiring post!!

    After 7 year long painful and shocking struggles to start to make any money online, now I've decided to get up like Rocky Balboa again from being down on my knees many times so far and finally win the game of making money by means of internet marketing.

    By the way, I have been extremely skeptical about making money as an affiliate for years. However, this post as well as the real life experience of another internet millionaire who's recently helped me recover from all the pain and failures by teaching me the right millionaire mindset and little known internet marketing strategies are now making me confident and encouraged enough to make it.

    By the way, I'd like to learn your real story on your journey to becoming an internet marketing millionaire and also why you'd like to become one.

    Please, feel free and welcome to visit my blog and post your comments there.

    In advance thanks a lot.
