Most places will only reveal revenue. Even with most local businesses like coffee shops or franchises, it's all based on revenue.
In regards to IM, again it's the same deal only revenue. But obviously with things like PPC and paid backlinks, etc, the revenue could be high, but so can the expenses. This is why you should only stick to those Internet marketers who also reveal expenses. I'm sure if you've followed Clayton, you've also seen that he reveals his expenses (and they really isn't any surprises there). Not sure if you know him, but Pat Flynn (http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/
) is another good marketer who I only just got onto, but saw that his reports include expenses as well, and profit.
Basically what I'm saying is just look around for those who reveal.
That being said, does it even matter man? Get out there and start doing your own stuff, and get some experience. This shouldn't even be a thought if you're a newbie, go do something first.
And regarding the $400 in 4 months, even with 6 months it may not be able to be done. I outsourced a lot, and took something like the AB course to an extreme by making the sites bigger and multiplying it all by 5. If you can do it, then it's possible, but a lot of the time results are small in the first 6 months.
But at the end of the day bud, how many sites you got up? Have you seen any sales?
