How to make a $1,000 a month business
We created this software to help you get your first dollar and beyond, and we'll personally work with you every step of the way.Only 463 spots remaining!
If you were going to tell a friend to start a business, where would you tell them to go? I'm sure you can recommend a book or buy some crappy online course. But what if you really wanted to guarantee results?
I wondered that myself.
After 10 years of my failures (wasted 1.5 years and losing $150,000+) and successes (#30 at Facebook, #4 at Mint.com and creating 2 multi-million dollar businesses), I learned certain patterns that make a successful business.
So the Appsumo team and I created this software that shows how to create a profitable business.
But, we realized that people need more than just the blueprint.
Here's an example.
I was working out recently and was going to stop at 8 reps of shoulder presses. Fortunately, my best friend Johnross was there and he pushed me to get 10.
NO JR, I can't!
He persisted and I got to 10.
It dawned on me that's what we are doing with this product - pushing you towards new accomplishments and "sitting" right next to you to help you get it done.
The real question is what do you want?
If you want to start a business I promise you the AppSumo team and I will personally help you get there.

Ps. Yes, I'm serious about this and NO I don't need your money. If you are in debt or want some get rich quick scheme, this is not for you. BUT if you are willing to do some work at your pace then we are available at your beck and call :)
You've probably had an idea you've been holding onto but it isn't that great, and that's why things aren't working. Right?
Don't worry, you're not alone.
Whether you have too many ideas, or no ideas at all, we'll teach you 14 methods to generate 35 ideas that solve real problems. After you build your arsenal, we'll help you narrow the ideas down to the one you find most profitable and fun.
In order to make sure you're most successful, we'll put you through our entrepreneurial bootcamp called the Failure Olympics. You'll experience business mind-shifts and develop skills that'll make you unstoppable. Our students have told us this alone is worth the price of the course.
It's shocking how many things scare people from starting a business: family, failing, and even succeeding. This is why we made the Failure Olympics - a set of tests that'll help make you fearless. Shown here are students taking the Smile Challenge.
The best part about How To Make Your First Dollar is that we don't lecture students. Instead, we make you experience everything we teach.
You'll learn the best ways to validate (see whether or not people will pay you) using minimal time and no money. And you'll do this all in person.
A huge part of validation is identifying your customer's "totem pole." The totem pole helps determine how important your solution is to your customer. We'll help you identify where you stand on your customer's totem pole and how to get on top.
You'll see a crap ton of real businesses validations and how their initial ideas, using these same techniques, turned into profitable businesses. By the end of this section, you'll have successfully validated an idea and have a business.
Using the Pre-Sales technique, Lisa proved her product was in demand by getting 3 paying customers. Before committing to her business idea, she validated people would pay for her muesli. Months later, her business is thriving.
The most common question after this entrepreneur bootcamp is, "where do I go now?"
Time to register your LLC and get business cards, right? NOPE. These are added distractions you don't need while your business is just learning how to fly on its own. You'll learn to be aware of and avoid these common "playing business" pitfalls and focus on what really matters: getting more customers.
After guiding you through getting your first batch of customers we'll walk you through no-cost marketing tactics to grow your business.
Earning that first $1,000 is just the beginning. The techniques we give you can be recycled to get you $1,000+ in monthly recurring revenue and beyond.
When we say you have our full support, we mean it. We do everything from answering technical questions to sending you follow-up emails. We know it takes a lot of work, so we're here to help guide you!
Thanks for checking in. I could tell about the many things that have been happening, but those would just be excuses.
Thanks for keeping me on track!!
You guys are awesome!
Your course sure got me motivated and gave me the momentum to do more stuff. I recently posted a request/offer on hacker news asking to do volunteer work... If I didn't take your course, I would have thought too much and coward a bit and never say anything like that.
So it's been just about a week since I first posted about my draft email, selling my ebook. Since then I have sold 9 eBooks! I'm really trying to get 10 within seven days. I made 90 bucks in seven days!
I'm an existing business owner (net profit of $60k per year) and am trying to objectively apply these methods to growing my business. Since taking the course (mostly thanks to the Failure Olympics, the Ultimate Sales Machine book and your live sales video), I've added $10K annual to my bottom line.
Building a real business mostly happens away from the computer, so we created a system you can take with you on the move.
If you feel inspired after work, during vacation, or even in the restroom, you can hop on and learn wherever you are, at your own pace.
This is one of the best returns on my investment in terms of the money I've put into it, as far as books or courses go. I've read the Four Hour Workweek and it put a lot of ideas into my head, but in the end it's very passive. This system gets you into the practice of actually doing stuff.
We have successful students from all over the globe. The fundamentals of starting a business are universal.
Select the payment plan that sounds right for you.
If you've thought of starting a new business but never gotten around to it, or done your best but gotten stuck along the way, this course could be a great fit… so long as you're willing to step outside of your comfort zone and do things a little differently.
How To Make Your First Dollar is jam-packed with takeaways for wantrepreneurs. Challenging activities are sandwiched between goofy photos and funny videos--In true AppSumo fashion, everything's pretty light-hearted and fun, so you don't even realize how much you're learning.
What you'll get out of the course:
You'll assess your own strengths and learn some creative ways to find business ideas in line with your interests--and that other people actually want.
You'll save time and money (and minimize frustration) by validating a few of these ideas *quickly*--and BEFORE putting money into the thing--you'll fail faster and come back stronger. (For those of us who put blood, sweat and tears into products nobody bought, this is priceless).
You'll get step-by-step instructions on a myriad of strategies for validating a business, and lots of case studies to boot (including Noah's disc golf experiment).
You'll begin to cultivate the optimal entrepreneurial mindset. So you'll learn how to pick yourself up after failure, develop positive habits and set small goals so you'll rack up some wins as well.
It's hard to start a profitable business in just a few months, but what this course offers is a blueprint to guide you along the way long after the course ends.
Also included is access to a very busy closed facebook group to help you with brainstorming, and email guidance from Noah himself. He'll answer quick questions, give suggestions or help brainstorm solutions if you're stuck, ask probing questions if you're struggling, and provide encouragement from time to time. Nobody's holding your hand, but the course offers both accountability and support in a challenging but relaxed environment.
You have a team of pros here to help you at any time.
