Markus Frind, menghasilkan IDR 110M dalam setahun dari Google Adsense

Ini baru contoh Success Story yang nendang nih, menjadi $ Millionaire dari Google Adsense ! Dia adalah Markus Frind sang pendiri Plentyoffish.com, sebuah situs Online Dating dengan tagline “100% Free, Put away your credit card!”.

Uniknya, Markus Frind bersedia menceritakan sejarah dia mendirikan situs Plentyoffish.com seorang diri (one man show) mulai dari nol, baik dari sisi permodalan maupun dari kompetensi. Benar-benar dari Nol !

Secara jujur dia menceritakan semua dan bukti-bukti percakapan sewaktu dia masih belum ngerti bisnisnya, dimana dia sering bertanya di forum internet masih tersimpan di arsip-arsip forum tsb.

Markus menghasilkan $10.000.000 dalam setahun dari Google Adsense (klik disini untuk konversi ke IDR, hampir Rp. 110 Milyar).

Dia mengguncang Internet ketika dia posting foto contoh check yang dia terima dari Google AdSense, nearly $1 million CAD, penerimaan untuk 2 bulan, karena bulan sebelumnya pencairan ditolak oleh Bank karena kegedean jumlah duitnya :). Klik disini untuk konversi ke IDR.

Ruarrrr biasa…. 🙂

Yang menjadi high light dari penuturan si Markus adalah: Dia mengandalkan teknik-teknik Viral!, Horizontal Marketing…

“It was all viral”…

You’ve obviously done a brilliant job marketing the site because you have some insane traffic numbers. What do you feel has been your most successful marketing move and why?

It was all viral. My best move was not going out and spending a ton of money, with online dating you need to spend $6.00 for every free member, and most of those leave on the first day and the few that do become active don’t stay more than 3 months. So 30% of your membership is turned over per month. There is no way you can make your money back. The site went ballistic in Canada all on its own I really didn’t have to do anything.

What has been your least successful marketing effort? Why wasn’t it successful?

Radio, too expensive, too hard to buy your way into markets. Yahoo, Match.com and Eharmony and Lavalife are each spending $10 million a month on marketing. How can you even come close to competing with them?

Inspiring gak sich?

Monggo silakan dikomentari….
