How did Sam get started?
I spent some time piecing together Sam’s backstory and posted all the details here.
He started both businesses while still in his early 20’s and within two years they were apparently generating about $35,000 each in monthly revenue.
Sam later sold SnapInspect to focus on his consulting business.
He then evolved the consulting biz along these lines…
Starting out in the “done-for-you” stage, Sam notes that he used contractors rather than doing the work himself…
Per my research, Sam’s first consulting client was a window tinting business in New Zealand, paying him $1000 for website improvements.
Beyond that, my best guess is that Sam made pretty good money consulting for local businesses in New Zealand – probably in the range of $10-15k per month total – starting in 2012.
Then, by early 2013, he was already coaching others to do the same.
What type of online business does Sam have?
Sam runs a multifaceted online business.
According to our framework it can be broken down like this:
- Agency (Level 3)
Sam’s early done-for-you consulting business would fit here, since he outsourced much of the work. Nowadays he hires coaches to help students in his training programs.
- Authority (Level 4)
Sam’s business success at a young age made him a sought-after expert in entrepreneurial circles. He’s amassed a big following online which he’s been able to monetize in various ways.
- Digital Products (Level 4)
Sam seems to generate the majority of his income nowadays via sales of his online courses (ie. information products).
- Cloud Service (Level 5)
Sam built (and later sold) a SaaS called SnapInspect.
- Social Network (Level 5)
Sam’s online courses have a significant social component in the form of private Facebook groups.
