I Want to Generate $50,000 a Month: This is My Year-Long Case Study

blog cover image

This is my journey to reach my goal of $50,000 per month. This is not official training and it's not a how-to tutorial, it's my journey on route to my personal goal!

START DATE: MAY 22, 2018


I have set a personal goal of $50,000 per month earned from a single blog. Why not? Anything's possible! The way I hope to reach this amount is by studying every step and the ways each are working.

This is, more less, a case study, emphasizing the ability to create a massive income with due diligence and effort. I intend to do my very best to accomplish the challenge. After all, this is why we all are here! Think of the "what if"...!


IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Please note that this is a Personal Case Study to prove to myself whether or not it is obtainable to earn a large income, as much as $50,000 per month in only a year's time. (A case study analyzes research over a period of time.) This Personal Case Study has not been proven as of yet, and will prove in time whether or not it can be accomplished. I will seek the possibility of the subject matter.

FURTHERMORE: The leaders of Wealthy Affiliate have given their consent to this Personal Case Study with regard to adhering to the WA standards, rules, regulations and guidelines. This is under no circumstance a "how to" study, as it is not a proven method. It is not a training, as it is pure speculation and has not been proven. This is my own personal study to prove, whether or not, this task can or cannot be accomplished.

THIS PERSONAL CASE STUDY IS WRITTEN IN FIRST PERSON SINGULAR. It includes my own thoughts and speculations. Therefore, the following content lists the tasks I will take to venture through my study. I welcome you all to follow along and make it your choice whether or not you would like to join in these tasks with me. I am very hopeful and excited to pursue this one-year journey, and to invite others to either observe as an onlooker or to become a participant.


First off, to create the masterpiece--a brand new site with a very simple set up---choosing a theme of relevance.

I will attempt the possible!

In keeping in tune and excitied about this project, I want to get input from the WA Community, so pay close attention!

$100,000 PER MONTH?

Suppose I said that any one could earn $100,000 a month income in only one year. Would that get some attention?! That, after just 12 months, anyone could be on their way to earning a mere $1,200,000 per year! Does that seem outrageous?


Okay then, let's cut the chances in half to earn $50,000 a month and $600,000 a year. That would still be life-changing, right?! And, I want this to be life-changing!

My psychology behind this is that anything of substance earned under that would be extremely doable!

For example, if I shoot for $50,000 a month and earn $10,000, my efforts would be greatly relieved!---and the end result would be for me to prove that this platform can perform great tasks in making very wealthy individuals!

So, let me begin. This is my personal Case Study, but I would like to also extend it to others.

Anyone who chooses to do this also, is very welcome to. I will be including many unique steps to possibly create a very comfortable lifestyle to look back on in extreme awe!

So, who's with me?!

Whether you would like to be an observer or a willing participant, this ride will be fun!

Now that I've set some interest on the subject, I will begin to create a business from the ground up, reporting my progress each week right here on each one of my blog posts.


I have made my decision as to what type of business I will build from scratch!

I will be using this exact case study to implement on my blog in order to present an opportunity to others on the web who may also choose to seek and create a possible mastermind business!!

So, my niche is Making Money Online (in a huge way)!

I will choose mine with my last blog post in mind! "Marketing that goes Viral with Great Content! Enter: Content Marketing."

Marketing that goes viral with great content! Enter: Content Marketing

I chose a niche with a mastermind plan that will draw in an enormous following. I chose MMO (Make Money Online) because it is a subject that MANY on the web may be in tune with! SELECTED WITH CARE!

I will leave you to your thoughts now and will continue tomorrow with my next task.

In the next 24 hours, I will come up with a...

PLAN OF ACTION!---A NICHE THAT MAY POSSIBLY EARN $50,000 a month (to shoot for) in a year's time.

Here's an all-important list to assist in my study of topics in reference to successful blogs. This list will be my guide:




(This is my personal list to use, which you may also replicate for your business venture, if you so choose to do so.)

  1. I will buy a domain. (This is not to promote or influence readers in any way, but is the action I am personally taking.) I am using Jaaxy to research the keywords. I will choose wisely a name that will draw intense attention.
  2. I will set a goal--- for 1 year---for any possible extraordinary earnings from my site.
  3. I will choose a WordPress theme that will be simple, yet effective in my quest.
  4. I will add time to research my niche and get familiar with it's ins and outs. The more I come to know about it, the more ideas I will develop for my content.
  5. I will make a list of 10 topics that I would like to apply to my blog's content.
  6. I will write my content. This will take the most time throughout the year. I will spend at least 2-5 hours on each article within my blog, (remembering about content marketing). Each piece will be 1,000 - 2,000 words, in order for my blog to be a very explicit blog on the internet!
  7. I will choose one or more (the more, the better) Social Media platforms such as FaceBook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google Plus, LinkedIn and Twitter, to promote my articles.
  8. I will share each blog post on Social Media as I develop trusting and loyal relationships with my Social Media audience.
  9. I will breath and watch my site develop into a possible monstrosity of a money-making machine!

See you tomorrow with my first task. Look for me!

I think you have something we can all learn from. By working together, while working our own sites, We will get ideas that we would not get working alone.

I'm a strong advocate of a mastermind group working for a common goal. A 50K a month website is an ambitious goal. Why go for anything less?

Precisely, Bill! Glad you're in tune with it all! You spoke your response perfectly and surely know how to succeed! Happy you're on board! :)!

Hi Herinnelson
That sounds awesome.

I just read in a travel magazine about earning 250 dollars in fifteen minutes with one little device. So anything is possible.

Coming up with 2000 words will certainly be a challenge and getting familiar with social media. I have so much to learn and so little time!!!! I am feeling the heat
I know it's not a race and I am progressing with my training. I am very happy with my progress.

So yeah, I'll be watching and learning.

You Go Girl!!

I love your confidence and input, Thomas! Slow and steady..

2,000 words is just a wavering ground rule I set to seek some encouragement. 1,000 words of great and high-quality content will also make it work.

Great to have you on track!

I’ve only just started with WA and I’m on lesson 3, choose your niche. Probably a good time to get on board with you I’m really struggling to find my niche. I’m going to follow you on this though and hopefully pick up some tips, inspiration and momentum.

Sounds like an awesome plan, Gregor! Perfect timing! This will give you some guidance and energy going forward! Great connecting with you!

Erin you are going to be the one to capture the many on the internet whom desire this, before they waste their time and money on gurus and systems that just to fly to the moon and back. IN for sure, how could I not, I love wearing pink lipstick too, plus your styl'in with those shades. Love your blog.

Awesome! I love your answers --- AND your name! My first name is Heather, too! Did I tell you that yet? The "H." I go by my middle name. :)!

Double Trouble, Heather, thanks for sharing. Love your style girl. Hey just wondering does your sister have a website, i just feel by a blog i read of you two vacationing that she'd be great too.

I have thought about that, Heather. She is always so enthusiastic and may join sometime in the future--when she's not so extremely busy with her business!

Love being pink lipstick and shades girls!

Dear Herinnelson I have seen how some folks have made huge money Blogging with content that goes viral but I cannot see why..
o.o1% of 3.5 billion people on the Internet is a large enough
target market to be able to make $ 50 000 a month I guess .
I am busy with Affiliate Boot Camp training...I go well then go slow
but I must complete the course so I can make 300 referrals
and go to Vegas.. I will be reading your Blog with great interest...
Thanks for Sharing YOUR BIG GOAL
Be Blessed

Great response, David! Yes, it will be a challenge, but certainly obtainable. I am going through Bootcamp a second time as I do this. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out!

I thought that MLM created most millionaires but I would say Online including social media has over taken ..You are so Passionate about this industry if any one can do it it is you..
We need you to be our Roger Bannister who did the first under 4 minutes so you can be our first Million Master. .Hebrews 11 ;1 Is
Your Advantage …
Stay Blessed

Humbled, I'm sure, from your reply. Yes, online marketing and social media are great assets that have come alive to a new level! I'm just taking the bull by the horn (as my Mother would tell me to do often) and running with it! I am definitely being led as I go! Great passage! "Faith in Action!"

Hi Herin
I am so fired up with your Challenge of $600 000 a year as you do it , it will Create such a chain reaction that others will go for Half the $ 600 000 and achieve it others like Herin wont stop at the $ 600 000 mark but go past Can you FEEL THE ENERGY that Would be felt here at WA Wow VIRAL $$$$$ You HERINNELSON HAVE STARTED THE CHAIN REACTION .
I will be Praying for you to Stay FOCUSED ….I must go before I make this a long post

Your enthusiasm is FANTASTIC, David! Thanks for adding so much excitement here! You have gotten me even more motivated! I imagined all your words (planted seeds as I read them). Staying focused! Blessings!

It would be interesting if you could teach how to set up a Facebook page/group and link to a website. I see one FB group that has you sign up with their website first, and since I'm new to FB groups, I'm not really sure how that's done, but that seems like a good way to build up the website.

I'm in the process of building a new group in one of niches and I'm doing it as an experiment and to learn how to do it. I want to know how before I do another FB group with the main website I plan to build out with WA.

I also would like to learn about promotions. I'm currently running a giveaway to get people to like, comment and share in order to get my page organically growing on FB and even with asking my friends to do so (and tempting them with money) they're too busy to do so! LOL Another reason WA is important...suppport!

Wow, Wendy---some excellent insight! I am creating a FB Group specifically for this purpose and for WA members. I will offer the group to any outsiders who join WA first to be in the group! Along the way, I will address your concerns, too. So great connecting with you. I could use your thoughts along the way!

Erin :)!

I also saw one FB group last year that does giveaways daily and people log in to watch her spin a wheel pick a prize and winner. She did the like, comment, share giveaways and also would have literally 10s of thousands show up for the giveaway spin. I can't find her right now, but she was giving away that hot hatchables toy christmas 2015 and people were going nuts!

Wow, Wendy! Great example of true passion for what you believe in! Thanks for sharing that, and I will put the same energy into my FB group! You've given me the incentive to do so! Thanks!

I’m really glad I’m following you so I can continue to get updates on the progress of this! I’m on my first niche site and fully agree that this is completely do-able with the right motivation and dedication. You get out of it what you put into it!

I’m curious though, why the 2,000 word content articles? Is it better than 1,000 word content?

Awesome and absolutely, Dave! Happy to have you on track! I simply set some wavering ground rules at 2,000 words to push to the limit. 1,000 would probably suffice, though---if it is worth some viral-worthy traffic!

Hi (Good afternoon from me +2GMT) Thank you for this inspiring post. Personally, I felt unmotivated today but after reading this I have perked up and ready for an adventure. But wait, I already am on an adventure. Then this will be a lengthy side quest until I can continue

Well stated, Ricardo! You will be a true asset going forward in our quest for success! Glad to have your input and motivation! Let's do this!

Thanks dear Erin for this inspiring post. It makes me very enthusiastic. If I want to choose between an observer or a willing participant, of course I will be a willing participant. I have my website and it is about making money online. I have more than ten articles. What u said I have it in my website.. I want to read the next. I will read your next blog and apply word by word
Wishing you great success

That's perfect, Rania! Having a site up and running with high-quality content is a jump ahead of this venture! Glad you're on track!

I’ve only just begun here, so might have to follow with interest, rather than actively joining in (I have a lot to learn and a lot of training to complete)
But, hey, I’m a glass half-full type of guy and driven by enthusiasm and shoot for the stars attitude, so I’ll jump onboard if you’ve room for a newbie

That is my thoughts also. Would love to take the plunge but still learning. Thinking I am going to go for the boot camp style first and learn from what has already worked.

Take the plunge! You don't need to be perfect before you begin, you just need to begin and get perfect along the way

There's always room for a newbie, David! Listen and watch with intent as you train in WA. I, myself, am going through Bootcamp for a second time as I do this! I love your positive mentality! Great to connect with a person of integrity!

Learn all the Certification first, as it will be your guidelines. However, setting up a Bootcamp style site would greatly benefit your endeavors!

Great point, Mark!!

Thanks for the advice. I am working on getting through the first few lessons of Boot Camp now. Will be following along and trying to jump in as well.
