In this episode, I take a look the results of an informal survey that I did of people the bought Forever Affiliate through my link. Did they think the course was valuable (the answer was YES). Did they take action and follow through? Did they make money with their sites? I ask some hard questions in this episode, and I don't pull punches. I also address some feedback from a listener that wants to know if he can really make money online to support his family.
Can You Replace Your Income With An Online Business
One listener writes in (we call him KB). His goal is to work at home on the internet, and is currently completely debt-free. Is it possible for him to make $3000/month? Can it be done? This simple answer is yes — it can be done. Is it easy? Nope. I discuss this at length.
Just signed up for your newsletter, listening to your podcast while I'm writing this message. I am new to all this. My goal is to work at home on the internet. I have worked really hard to lower my financial needs in order to do this. My wife and I are completely debt free….we purchased a mobile home for $8000 cash and I spent the last 7 months remodeling it (looks brand new now.) Our cars are paid for. No credit card debt. We do have 3 daughters (ages 11-14) and obviously still need income, but I have positioned myself so that we could get by comfortably with $2500-3000 per month. We could get-by on less, but that is what it would take to be comfortable.
Here is my question….can I do this? Can I put together niche websites that could earn this much? I don't mind putting in the work. I just want to know if this can be done?
I have 1 site started… xxxxxxxxxxx let me know what you think?
I appreciate your time.
Your newest fan,
I mention the Security Guard Training site that Pat built in this segment.
I also talk about this old income survey that I did.
The bottom line is that it is possible to make a full time income on line. But a lot more people fail than succeed. We discuss the things that can change the
Was Forever Affiliate A Good Investment?
You will always see lots of people promoting make money online programs like Forever Affiliate. But seldom will you see people try the program themselves. And even fewer people will follow up with the people that bought the program and determine if it created results. We talk about both in this episode.
Tough questions — tough answers.

Episode 067 Transcript
This week we continue our conversation about whether or not it’s really possible to make money online. In fact, we take some listener feedback from someone who is considering supporting his family with an online business and wants to know if it’s really possible. My answer may surprise you.
Additionally, and along those same lines, we take a hard look at the Forever Affiliate training program that was recommended right on this very show only eight months ago. We talk to real listeners just like you about what they’re experience was and take their feedback, and we ask some hard questions.
All this and more on the Late Night Internet Marketing Podcast…
Notes from Mark
It’s only been a couple of days and I’m back on the mic. That’s because I went almost two weeks or just over two weeks without producing a show. My goal is to drop a show every Thursday, so to make it up to you I’m going to try to get three shows squeezed in over a seven day period to get back on track. That will give me an average of a show per week.
My goal is still to drop every Thursday. And I know that you want it, because when I don’t drop a show on a Thursday I start getting emails, and the longer I wait the more emails I get, Facebook messages. I’m surprised people haven’t sent out a search party at times. I appreciate that, it’s very motivating to get that kind of feedback from listeners and I really do appreciate that.
Speaking of feedback, I want to give a shout out to Farnoosh, she left a five star review for the show. You’ll recall that we interviewed her a couple episodes ago. She left me a review in iTunes where she says, “Mark Mason was made for radio or podcasting. I’m so glad I got to meet Mark and got to know him better. He’s one of the most devoted podcasters with a pure joy for doing his shows and giving to his listeners.” Thank you for that review in iTunes, Farnoosh.
She knows how much those iTunes reviews mean to me and the show. They’re huge as far as helping get the word out about the show, they increase my visibility in iTunes. If you love the show, I would love it if you could hop on over to iTunes. You can find that by going to LateNightIM.com/iTunes, that will direct you straight over to the iTunes review page and you can click on Leave a Review and do that for me. That would be huge.
I just want to say, Farnoosh has it right on the money as far as the joy part. I really love doing the show. I hope you find it helpful and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, because I really love talking to you guys each and every week.
