My WA Affiliate Commission Report For September 2018

Last Update: October 01, 2018

Hey everyone! I'm back with my latest WA commission report. September treated me VERY well as a WA Affiliate. I got to wake up this morning to this email from PayPal:


Sheesh, nearly $1,000 per week promoting WA?!? Things just keep growing and growing. In case you missed them, here are my prior WA commission reports:

$2,301 in June
$3,145 in July
$3,648 in August

I was only $1.50 short of making $4,000 this month... so close! With that said, I'm confident I will make more than $4,000 in October. This month has already started off with a bang. My dashboard is currently showing this for JUST TODAY!


But you know what? Let's make today even better. I have a bunch of credits that I haven't converted into cash yet. Let's do that now...


Much better! :)

I've now made more than $350 this month, and it's the first day of the month! Just incredible. I remember when making that much money in a week was a good week for me.

Comparing September Stats

As usual, I like to compare stats to the previous month. Here's how things went down:

Clicks: 3,596 (-166)
Unique Clicks: 2,525 (+141)
New Sales: 51 (+1)
Recurring Sales: 98 (+9)
Yearly Resubscriptions: 5 (+1)
Total New Referrals (free account): 428 (-3)
Referral Upgrade Percentage: 11% (no change)
Referral Credits: $163 (+$5)

Total Commissions: $3,998.50 (+$350)

My takeaway from these stats? Things remained pretty flat. The only real reason I saw my commission increaes is due to more recurring sales, but I've got to step things up by increasing the number of new sales. I have a content strategy to make that happen, but it will take a couple months to fully roll out.

Made It To Vegas!!

As if a nearly $4,000 paycheck wasn't awesome enough, I also made it to the WA Vegas Super Affiliate Conference! Woo Hoo! If you haven't seen it, I created a post about that here.

It seems like there will be a great group this year, and I won't be the only new face there. I'm so looking forward to chatting with other successful affiliate marketers. We're hard to find in the wild!

Additional Revenue

While I have several websites, this commission report is just for the site I have that promotes WA. In addition to WA commissions, I also earned from a couple other sources as well.


And....


And...


So, just this ONE website in my portfolio earned me $5,454.12 That's about $65,000 per year if nothing changes. I mean, that's a pretty damn good living if I may say so myself! That's more than I made as a truck driver by nearly $20,000, except I'm not away from home 6 weeks at a time.

Your Support Has Been AMAZING!!

I really want to thank everyone here for the support you've shown me over the past several months. My Vegas post had over 200 comments congratulating me, in addition to the private messages I received from so many of you. This community is so amazing and one of the reasons I love WA so much Thank you all so much for your kindness and continued support. It means a lot to me, and I hope these posts provide some inspiration. Yes, it really IS possible to earn great money through affiliate marketing!!

Now, go get your slice of the pie, there's plenty to go around! :)

Hi Mike I had read this when you had posted but couldn't comment and then forgot but I got reminded tonight to check out this post again.

I have to say your numbers are really incredible! I read your stats below and your traffic is half of what I get but you now surpassed my earnings!

I didn't have any yearly sales in Sep that hurt me a lot but my new sales & recurring were the same as yours pretty much.

Amazing how well your traffic is converting!!

Congratulations!

You should totally put ads from Mediavine on there, it will add another $500 - $1.5K to your bottom line. One time set up and tweak and that's it, best passive income.

Mike, you are truly amazing in your achievements.

Your detailed stats encourage the entire global WA community in knowing that the WA formula not only works but that it beats many other so called making extra money such as driving an Uber car or working overtime, both of which require that you are away from home and your family.

Enjoy the well deserved Las Vegas trip and may you continue to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Blessings!

Thanks for sharing. I really hope I can jump into promoting WA and create a new site. It's quite difficult because English is not my native language.

I've been thinking of creating a site in my own language to promote WA, but the audience would be quite limited.

Have a great day and congrats!

Yeah, I've often wondered about hiring a freelancer to create websites for me in other languages, or even translate some of my current sites into other languages. I haven't researched that too much, but it's an interesting idea.

Simply based on your reply, your English is great! In fact, depending on your niche or the site you build, it might be good to embrace the fact that English is not your first language. People are sick and tired of corporate websites. They want to hear from REAL people. So don't let that bother you. In fact, be open and honest that English is not your native language. If I was on your site, that would actually build trust and show that you're a real and relatable person!

You know, your updates are so encouraging...! I am still at the very beginning of everything, still taking the training, learning how to make a website... Some time ago, I kind of regretted that I didn't start out with the Bootcamp first, but then I came to the conclusion that I have to take all the steps necessary myself first before I can lead and teach someone else. I don't know if that is true, and maybe not to everyone, but I rest assure that I did the right decision and if nothing else I believe in diversifying. Your updates are a true inspiration and I really like your humble take on it. Big congratulations to you!

You know what? I totally agree with you 110%. WA offers a great affiliate program, but you want to know a secret? WA is not my most profitable affiliate partnership. In fact, my most profitable affiliate partnerships have nothing to do with the "make money online" niche. If you're doing the math, yes, I earn well into the 6 figure range between all of my affiliate partnerships. Let that sink in! I never, ever, ever thought I would earn into the 6 figures with this. At the very least, I figured to make that much I'd have to grow into some corporation and have a big staff. But here I am, writing to you from my couch, and the only "employees" I have are freelancers that live thousands of miles from me.

I highly recommend you stick to a topic you already know about and can teach others about. Otherwise, maybe learn a new hobby, and just write a blog or create video blogs about what you're learning. This is a long term strategy. At first, you won't have much to offer people, but after a year or more of learning and documenting your whole experience? What a resource that would be!

In any case, my point is that there is no limit here. I admit that I love the WA affiliate program, but there are great affiliate programs in almost any niche. The possibilities really are endless. Just learn as much as you can, but also, eventually you'll need to jump in and just start doing it. You'll make mistakes. Heck, you might even need to start completely over. But if you do SOMETHING on your business every day, even if it's just for 5 minutes, you'll always be moving one step closer.

I wish you nothing but the best. I know it feels like a long journey, but if you're able to enjoy the process along the way, you'll be unstoppable. :)

Could not have put it better Mike :-)

I am not in the MMO niche, but I am building something closely related to it and I do feel that I am much better prepared now having built and succeeded with a niche site.

Although the bootcamp training is there (and I will go through it) I do know the process and what is required to succeed with my new project.

Personally I think members are far better off going through the certificate training, watching the WAbinars, building and succeeding with a niche site before doing a bootcamp site.

Yes!!! Most people that reach out to me asking about a niche, I actually steer them away from promoting WA (sorry Kyle and Carson!). It's actually one of the few pet peeves I have here. The MMO niche is SO competitive and we have so many people already out there promoting WA. It's hard to believe, but there are more UNsaturated niches than there are saturated ones. There are so many directions people can go besides MMO.

Hi Mike, This is inspiring, not for the money you make but how you pulled yourselves up out of the debt and continued marching towards a fulfilling life. I believe money is a by-product of hard/smart work and plenty of persistence and determination. Keep inspiring us.

Let me tell you... before I started my business I was truly at rock bottom. I was completely depressed and even borderline suicidal (although I could never actually go through with that).

At the time, the way I saw it, this was the ONLY solution for me. Failure wasn't an option. I planned on it taking 5 years before I could even think about quitting my job. Fortunately, that came much earlier. I've noticed that this type of story is so common among successful affiliate marketers. Most seemed to overcome big obstacles in their life before they found success.

While not true for everyone unfortunately, for me, the light shined through the darkness. I am incredibly fortunate to have dug myself out of that nightmarish hole and I'm thankful every single day.

Sorry to get so personal there! I just want others to know, if they are in a dark place, things can get better.

Thank you for your kind words and I wish you nothing but the best. Feel free to reach out anytime!! :)

Wow Mike, this is so cool!! Sure puts the rest the argument some people give that the market for promoting WA is oversaturated. Way to go!!

Well, there's a ton of competition to promote WA for sure. I don't even really know why my site ranks so highly for very profitable search terms.

For example, I rank #1 for Wealthy Affiliate Review. There are hundreds, if not thousands of sites that have reviews of Wealthy Affiliate... and GOOD reviews, too! Why do I get to rank #1? I honestly have no idea, and that's the complete truth. I just write the articles and post them. It almost doesn't even seem fair sometimes. I know how hard so many people are working to rank for WA related search terms, and I honestly feel kinda bad sometimes because I don't know what I'm doing differently.

Even if you type in Wealthy Affiliate my site is the first result after WA themselves. Same for Wealthy Affiliate Scam - I rank #1. Again, I don't really know why this is the case, but it has no doubt been the reason I've earned this type of commission.

I'm very thankful, and I'll enjoy it while it lasts. I doubt it'll last forever, but I will certainly be grateful while I have these high rankings.

Thanks for the positive feedback, much appreciated and best of luck to you!!

WOW! You have done really well! I would love to be earning that right now, but I need to put in the work and with your September commissions, it shows that you've definitely put in the time and effort to make those commissions a reality! Thank you so much for sharing that and congratulations on making it to Las Vegas!
