How does Sarah make money online?

- Affiliate commissions earned from recommending products and services to her audience.
- Revenue from ads shown on her channel.
- Sales of her online course, The Ecomm Clubhouse.
- Rewards on her credit card purchases.

How much money does Sarah make?
Sarah shared in a March 2020 video that she earns more than $2000 per day from a Print on Demand store…
That adds up to about $60,000 per month in revenue. Sarah notes a profit margin of 29-47% in the video. If we use a conservative margin of 35%, we’re left with $21,000 per month. Presumably there would still be expenses that would need to be subtracted from that (software expenses, for example).
In a September 2019 video, Sarah revealed that she earns more than $10,000 per month from affiliate marketing…
A much higher percentage of that income would be profit.
In a July 2020 video, Sarah showed at the 18:50 mark that she earned $17,471 in YouTube ad revenue over a recent 28-day period:
Sarah’s YouTube channel is growing steadily (according to Social Blade) so it’s safe to assume she earns at least $15,000 per month in ad revenue consistently.
It’s unclear how much money Sarah earns from her other online stores, her online course (priced at $67/month), or from credit card rewards.
Although at the 10:10 mark of the video above, Sarah does talk about her credit card rewards and shows how she can exchange 5-days of accumulated points on one card for $250 in iTunes gift cards. Assuming that’s typical, her credit card rewards would be over $1000 per month.
Altogether, it’s probably safe to say that Sarah is pulling in at least $90,000 per month in revenue from all her online business activities.

What type of online business does Sarah have?
Sarah runs a multifaceted online business.
According to our framework it can be broken down like this:
- GetPaidTo (Level 1)
Sarah’s credit card rewards are essentially her getting paid to spend money.
- Freelance (Level 2)
Sarah has mentioned that she did some consulting work related to affiliate marketing. Presumably this was on a freelance basis.
- Agency (Level 3)
Sarah used to run an agency that provided SEO services.
- Resale (Level 3)
I believe Sarah still runs several dropshipping stores.
- Authority (Level 4)
Sarah has about 500k subscribers on her YouTube channel, monetized in various ways.
- Digital Products (Level 4)
This would be Sarah’s online course. Her print on demand stores would also be considered digital product businesses.
