It's Official! I'm A Proud 2-Figure Business Owner

Last Update: April 15, 2019

I know, if you buy a domain name, then you've already invested two figures into your business (I mean, if you bought a yearly membership for WA, then you've invested 3-figures into your business).

So I will admit, this achievement isn't exactly anything to be overly proud of. But, it definitely is a major achievement for me, since it's the first time I've made any money with ads.

Adsense Making Me Money

You see, a little over 5 days ago, I was accepted into Google Adsense. And with the recent influx of traffic, I've been able to make a small amount of money through ads.

Just today (about 5 days since I put ads on my site), I finally hit $10 dollars, making my site one that has finally made money - 2-figures worth of it.

And so, because of it, I'm now the proud owner of a 2-figure business!

I guess, if you also took the cents into account, one could argue that I was the owner of a 4-figure business.

But all joking aside, I'm really just experimenting with ads, and seeing what comes out of them. I currently have them on 'auto ads' (where Google automatically places them).

My guess is if I tweak it a bit here or there, I should be able to get a few dollars more per day, but we'll see. I'm just happy right now to be earning around $3 per day (it's better than nothing).

Hopefully, my traffic will continue to stay up as high as it has been recently, and I'll be able to apply for Mediavine at some point (since people have noted having better success with them).

But for now, I'm thankful with where I am at in my blogging experience.

Speaking Of Traffic...

For those of you who don't know, I recently posted about how I broke 1000 pageviews in one day. That was a few days ago.

Interestingly enough, I awoke today to find that I almost hit 2K page views yesterday!

It's been an exciting week, and I'm sure it's even going to be more exciting. I guess my next goal is going to have to try to shoot for 10K of page views in a day, but I don't know if I'll be able to achieve that. That may take a while.

Anyway, just wanted to let you all know of the updated success that I've been having. Don't hesitate to drop a comment below with how many figures your business is at!

With 1000-2000 pageviews, you should be close to the requirements for Mediavine ad network. They manage the ads for you and ensure you get a high RPM. You should check into that. Many bloggers get paid very well from placing ads from their ad buyers on their sites. It's very similar to Adsense, but better pay, and based on what I've heard, they have good customer support also.

Thanks for letting me know Tiffany. I was thinking that I needed to have 25K of views before applying, and so never checked into it. I'll have to give it a look, and see if I can get something. Thanks once again!

It's 25k sessions. You should be pretty close if not there already. 1k-2k pageviews/day is 30k pageviews a month and pretty close in the sessions, right? Check into it. That could be your pay raise.

All those six figure businesses were two figure businesses at some point :) well that's how I look at it. I often wonder if their owners were as racked with doubt about whether they were in the right track as I seem to be!

Congratulations, it is a milestone to be proud of indeed.

I think doubt is just part of the many things we need to work through, Heidi. If you asked me a month ago about my site, and whether I thought it was going to succeed, (if I was honest), I probably wouldn't have thought so.

If you ask me even now, I still have many doubts. It's okay to have those doubts. Just as long as you're not afraid to push through them, and continue with the training. If you do that, you'll/I'll see ourselves where we want to be (six figure business owners, here we come!).

Congratulations! Small or big achievement - I believe you should celebrate. I think this is a milestone so I would celebrate for sure! Now, the only thing to do is to repeat, tweak a little, and repeat. Please keep sharing your progress, both regarding followers and regarding the financial part. Keep up the good work, and thanks for sharing!

Congratulations. Any idea what caused the jump in page views?

Um, well, maybe it's because I'm actually writing articles now? LOL.

I think the main reason is because I've been able to successfully target trending now things within my specific niche. So, there is a lot of traffic, but most of it will be disperse within a week, or two, (or a month, I'm not sure yet).

So, all in all, it's just me following the training at WA, nothing really special.

Hopefully Godswill. I mean, if it does go south, at least I'll have some experiences to gain from it (always gotta look on the positive side, even if it's all negative :D)
