6 months at WA today! How my life changed forever!
Last Update: Mar 7, 2016
Today is my 6 month anniversary at WA! I can't believe how fast those last 6 months have passed...
September 7th was definitely the day that changed my life forever!
I still remember, me sitting on a terras with friends the day before, telling them that I wanted to start an online business but having no clue where to even start with.
I was one of the lucky ones, as I never tried anything before and I avoided all the online scams and other MLM's.
I fell straight into WA with absolutely 'zero' knowledge of anything that had to do with online marketing... but it felt 'right' and deep in my heart, I knew that I found the right place!
It didn't take me long to go premium and going yearly was an easy choice.
I wanted to share my experience with you and tell you a little more about what I have accomplished so far.
It's also a great way to make an update for myself and to help newbies have an idea of what you can accomplish here at WA!
I started to follow Kyle's training intensively and finished the whole training in 5 weeks.
Besides the certification course, I watched a lot of videos by Jay ( Magicstudios) and I learned a lot by following some the most influencing members here at WA like Loes, Magicstudios, Boomerpg08, DaveSW, MarionBlack, JasonGB, Ignorant, Nataniel,... and I pass ( too many great members to mention).
I feel blessed to have met so many awesome people and everything that they have taught me!
For newbies, I would recommend to not be afraid of reaching for help and ask questions!
there is no such thing as a stupid question!
When I started the training, Kyle recommended to chose a niche that you are passionate about.
It was an easy choice for me as my passion is electronic music production.
Making a money making website didn't seem to be a good option for me at the time.
Too much competition and I wanted to learn all the skills first by doing something that I really knew, loved and that would keep me passionate.
I created 24 posts, 27 pages, 1 Youtube video, 1 Ebook and I have 163 site comments.
My website is growing slowly but steady but I get more visitors every day and I get great feedback on social media,...

Logo's and banners
I created 'a brand' for my website, by creating a banner and a logo that would be easily recognizable.
I have written a post about where to create free logo's!
The second thing I did after having built up the foundations of my website is to concentrate on social media. I am not a social media person but I knew that social media is very important when you build up an online business.
I create a facebook page, and accounts on Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram
I have tried to use adds on facebook but even though I got some likes on my page and that some of my posts reached 1000 likes sometimes , it wasn't really worth the money for me. People tend to like but don't click on your website link.
I found out that Twitter is the easiest social media to get followers and I even met like minded people that I might work with in the future.
I recently discovered some great Affiliates in my niche besides Amazon who still is my main one for now. I have other small ones that are more specified to my niche.
Click Bank, Share a Sale, JV Zoo, are some others that I will work with in the future
The thing with Amazon is that fees are very low and I am not sure if I want to continue with Amazon in the long run.
I started an email marketing campaign a few months ago with Aweber that I later linked with Sumome.
I wrote an Ebook to give away as a freebie to new subscribers.
It started off really slow as nobody subscribed for months but recently things changed and I am getting new subscribers every day.

I created some follow-up series to add a sales funnel and upsells on white label products that I purchased.
Recently I have created my first Youtube video!
Check out the video here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCesFF2x37c the idea behind it, again is to get subscribers, create a sales funnel and upsells for the same products
I wrote a post about how I created my video!https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/angelbcn/blog/my-f...
Ups and Downs
Was it easy? NO !
Was it worth it! Hell, YES!
I had my ups and downs for sure. After 3 months with almosts no results I started to doubt myself.
I had worked so hard, sometimes 12 hours a day and I didn't have a sale … not even a subscriber.
Around Christmas, I took a break because I couldn't stay focused on my website anymore.
I thought about creating a new website, maybe money related, but on the other hand, I really wanted THIS one to succeed because I put my heart and soul in it.
I started to think of and I tried some Money Sharing websites and PPC's but it didn't feel right and I even lost some money with those instead of making money.
Until the day... I made my first sale!
Finally,I had proof that the system worked!
It was a small amount but it boosted me like never before!
I focused a 100 %on my website and from that point, things really started to improve.
I got other sales, subscribers, fans on social media and from 1 day to another everything looked brighter!
It took me almost 4 months to make my first sale..
So my message to you is to never give up and keep on writing, learning, posting,..
because your time WILL come and even though things don't look too good right now, with a lot of work and perseverance YOU WILL ACHIEVE!
I hope my experience will be useful :)

Wishing you all the best!
