makes $65,000 a month…and the whole site is just one PHP file


So here’s an interesting one. See the website above? It’s all contained in one single PHP file, and it generates $65,000/month. Yes, you read that right, it’s on a $780k/year run rate and it illustrates how much you can do if you know what you’re doing.

I first learned about from this tweet:

RemoteOk Revenue

When I saw this I thought, uh – this is total BS, there’s no way this site makes over $65,000/month. But I read on and the website creator, Pieter Levels goes on to shares more data:

RemoteOk Revenue 2

It turns out this isn’t Pieter’s first rodeo, he’s been building some pretty high-traction sites for a while now, being one of the most notable.

I think it’s safe to say, Pieter is pretty badass at growth hacking and I’m interested to learn more about how he’s build some of the brands he’s operating today.

After publishing this post I’m going to send Pieter a link to the post and ask if he’d be open to doing an interview on my blog as I’m sure many of you have some questions you’d love to ask him.

On that note, please feel free to post questions below and if he says yes, I’m happy to include them in the interview. No matter how you slice it, this is one talented guy, and I’m hoping he can drop some knowledge for all of us to learn from.

Congrats to Pieter and if you’re reading this, please say yes to my interview request! 🙏

    An interview with the creator of revenue-generating websites would be great. Yes 🙂

    I would like to know Pieter’s opinion on .com and domain extensions. Many domain name investors claim the importance and professionalism of using .com domains. What’s Pieter’s thought about that? And would Pieter consider contacting the owner of and buying that domain? If yes, would Pieter make the purchase if the owner of asks for $10,000? And what if the owner asks for $100,000 instead? Thanks.

    That is some badass PHP and UX on that site.

    Likely utilizing the customer list and previous ventures/connections to drive that sort of growth/traffic. This isn’t pure organic or someone your the average person can get done without a major infrastructure in place.

    It would be interesting to see an interview with Pieter for sure. Like another commenter above mentioned, there is much more than meets the eye here.

    If possible, ask him to share in detail how to make such simple site plus his monetization tips.

    Thanks in advance.
