I made $8 - FIRST TIME ! Hell Yeah

Last Update: March 27, 2014

Yesterday, I got a mail from wa that I have earned $8. So, when I logged into my Wealthy Affiliate profile, I found that one of my referrels have gone premium. The countdown to Las Vegas had dropped down to 299. This is also my first time that I earned money. I have started to earn my pocket money as was my main motive here.

$8......yeah !!!

Congratulations! May I ask, how long did it take for your first referral to become premium? What I mean is this: I have about 46 referrals for now. I am only active for about a week now in WA. How long could it take for the first one to decide to upgrade? Did you do special things ( talk to your referrals? Write to them? )
Reply
mlshands Premium
I would take the time to check in with all of your referrals. Ask them how they are doing and if there is any way you can help them achieve their goals. Offer your guidance and support.
Reply
zora2 Premium
Hi Jan. I am not currently promoting WA, but the person that referred me sent me a support letter the first day. Then he sends me encouragement if I need it. Also every month on my anniversary, he checks in.
It is not an every day thing. My point is, don't leave them hanging.
Reply
JanCeulemans Premium
You are right zora. I have now taken the time to prepare all the automated messages so everyone gets a personalized message according to the queue. However, that does not mean I am just going to sit here. You are more than right. It is important to built relationships and this is what I am going to do. So I will stay in touch with my referrals and try to be a good coach for those who came in after me.
Reply
KellyT Premium
Wow, you got 46 referrals in a week? That's really awesome. What are your tips?
Reply
Arka Premium
It happened in the first month only sir. Unfortunately it never happened again. 46 referrals and no premium is ok. Since you are doing great, you have more chances to convert. It will turn up somehow. Just optimize your webpages and create the welcome messages particularly.

How long did it take from Lesson 1 to $8? Community please chime in with your stories. I know every journey is different.
Reply

For me, the journey took 8 days. I did one lesson everyday. While that may be a slow pace it really benefited me in the long run. I was able to clearly understand all of the instructions and know when I was doing something wrong.

@Nessa60735,
8 days - how exciting! I think everyone's journey is different and without anything else to measure it by, I wouldn't call 8 days slow. I'd call it exciting. I had no idea it could happen that fast.

Thanks for sharing.
