    Increasing earnings by 50 cents a day: some calculations

    Hi all,

    I was intrigued to hear that Will works to increase his daily earnings by 50 cents every day. In other words, $0.50 on the first day, $1.00 on the second day, $1.50 on the third day, etc.

    Whether or not this is true is another matter, but I'm using "Will" and "he" in the discussion below anyway.

    I decided to do some calculations. This scheme is easily recognised as an arithmetic progression. This means that, on the nth day, the earnings for that day are given by

    a1 + (n - 1)×d,

    where a1 are the earnings on day 1, and d is the increase in earnings per day (50 cents in this case). So, for instance, if a1 = $0.50 and d = $0.50, then on the 365th day, he will earn $182.50.

    More interestingly, the total earned so far on the nth day is given by

    n×(2×a1 + (n - 1)×d)/2.

    So, on the 365th day, the total earned so far would be $33,397.50.

    After two years (n = 730), he's earning $365.00/day, and the total is $133,407.50.

    After three years, he's earning $547.50/day, and the total is $300,030.00.

    After four years (note that I'm ignoring leap years here), he's earning $730.00/day, and the total is $533,265.00.

    After five years, he's earning $912.50/day, and the total is $833,112.50.

    I could go on, but you've got the formulas too!

    Now, I once read that Will started making money online in 2004. The 1st of January 2004 was about 2090 days ago. This means that Will should now be earning $1045.00/day, and has earned a total of $1,092,547.50 so far!

    Any comments? Will?

    Is it possible that we also increase $0.50 a day on monetizing our websites? How are you sure about it and what's your proof anyway?

    You're not far from the truth.

    Well, it's roughly true. The details show a lot more ups and downs.

    The fact that I did this is interesting, but somewhat irrelevant. More important is the concept that if I did it, so can you.

    In the beginning years of this, I was managing another company and during much of that time I was also billing 40+ hours a week as a consultant.

    Incremental growth is a freakishly powerful concept.

    This is both and . Amazing numbers.

    Couple of questions... When you were earning like $10 per day, did you invest MORE than $10 per day in order to get to $20 or $30 per day? Did you invest more than you were earning in the beginning? For how long did you do that?

    This is another oddity which will reveal how stubborn I can be. Until revenue was over $10k/mo, I refused to see this as a business. I had this "web stuff" solidly classified as a hobby and I refused to invest in anything other than domain registration fees. Other than my time, my only investment was the price of a handful of domains.

    I do not recommend that others follow my strategy. RoI in this business is easily good enough to justify investment.

    I had the adcode on my sites in full force until it hit 38$ then I removed it all. (But some of their adcode is still lingering around on my sites.) There was no change in traffic levels, they just lowered their ecpms and stop paying for my traffic.
