How does Sam make money online?

Sam makes money online in a variety of ways, but since 2015-2016 it seems he mainly makes money from sales of his online courses and mastermind programs.

I’ve published an in-depth review of his most popular online course: 

How much money does Sam make?

Per my research, it looks like Sam’s business was generating revenues of approximately $2.5 million per month through 2018 and 2019.

That works out to about $30 million per year.

Sam has reported that his profit margin is 50% to 60%, so his business profits would be about $15 million per year.

See here for more details on Sam’s net worth and income.

How did Sam get started?

I spent some time piecing together Sam’s backstory and posted all the details here.

In short, Sam’s first success as an entrepreneur was two-fold: he started a digital marketing consulting agency while also building a cloud service business called SnapInspect.

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.
