How to Make Money on Social Media (How I made over $10K in one month!)

how to make $10k on social media

The night I made hit the $10,000 mark in my business was January 29th. 

When I hit this milestone I fell to my knees, bowed my head up and down and just said “thank you! thank you! thank you! thank you!” with tears in my eyes. That night I definitely believed a higher power was looking over me as I said “thank you” non-stop, my heart feeling like it was going to explode out of my chest.  To sweeten the pot, the following day I made an extra $3K after I increased my coaching prices, just in time before January came to a close.

Meaning that in January 2019 alone, I grossed $13,149.17 in my first month of launching my coaching services to the public.

YUP… I was stunned as well. I knew eventually in my entrepreneurial journey I would hit a $10k month… but I didn’t think it would be this soon.

You see just 6 months ago, I started my Youtube channel after quitting my corporate job cold turkey. I had no idea that fast forward to today, I would hit the $10k month mark that so many NEW business owners strive for. 

If you’re reading this… you might be wondering: How does someone go from making $0 to making $10K+ in a new business?

To keep things short and sweet, I owe a lot of my “overnight success” to the one and only:  Social Media.

Psst… let’s be real though, nothing beats hardwork and preserverance (which I owe ALL my success to… but we can get to this later.)

That’s why in this post, I’m going to share with you two of my FREE resources where I walk you through how I achieved this, and how you can do it too.

Resource #1: Watch this video to learn the backstory of how I made my first $10K month in my first official month of business

This video is a must-watch for anyone who needs that extra dose of inspiration. Trust me, I didn’t start with a huge following. I started my Youtube channel from scratch with 0 followers, and I had an instagram that had less than 10K. 

I had just quit a job paying me $65K and later became a coffee barista making minimum wage. All I had was determination and a dream.

If I can do it, I trust that it’s possible for you too.

Resource #2: Watch this video to learn all about my business model, and how YOU can make money on social media, too.

After you got the whole back story of my journey, make sure you watch this video to see how you can make magic happen on social media, too. And again, you don’t NEED to be an influencer to make money. Here in this video, I…

1)  Teach you all about how my business works (and how YOU can apply my business model to your niche), 
2) Share with you exactly how much money I make from Youtube Adsense Revenue (and your earning potential), and
3) FIVE different ways that you can monetize your social media account, so you can actually benefit yourself and your business instead of mindlessly chasing clout (I mean, cmon.. if you’re going to chase clout, you gotta make sure you get a REAL return on it – don’t you agree?)

… and voila! The two crucial videos you need to invest time to watch, because I promise you – you will learn something new… and who knows, maybe it will inspire you with all the possibilities you can create just by creating dope content online. 

Let me know in the comments below if you found any of these tips helpful… and if you haven’t already, make sure you check out more of our FREE resources!
