My first commission, 4 in a week. Yaay :)

I'm happy to inform the WA that I earned my first 4 product commissions, 2 products on 5th, one on 7th, one on 11th of November totaling $2.96.

I started my website like anyone else, with no knowledge. My first month went fine. I kept following the training and continued posting.

It was month two, I felt it quite hard to withstand the pressure of coping up with my studies and posting for my website especially when I had multiple components in a week.

It has been 3 months now, I'm suffering from writer's block. I couldn't make a new post for a week now. I barely had any hope of looking into my website as a revenue maker. But at times when I look into my previous post, I start wondering whether it was me who wrote those appreciable posts.

Today being another messed up day like any other, I pushed myself to write a review for a product by visiting Amazon affiliate, just to find that I had made 4 commissions, two of them belong to my niche.

What I've learnt

1. Internet marketing is a mind game. It's always between you and yourself.
2. Be free to explore every single possibility.
3. Be consistent( Don't worry about missing a day's work-spending 5 days feeling bad about it won't help anyone)and have an open mind to changes.

Thank you Kyle & Carson you both made my day :).

If anyone can help me with my "writer's block problem" I would be glad :)

Congrats Brian! What I do when I can't seem to focus on writing is go to Google alerts and just start reading up on my niche. Helps me.

Hey Brian. I have glad to meet you here!

You are really doing a great progress and Kudos! Well deserved!

IYou are right all is in your mind. If you are all the time gaving a negative attitude you won't able to earn any penny!

Well done :9

Congrats for your first commissions! Great! Keep up the work!

There are some good articles on how to get rid of writers block here at WA.
I personally liked these 3:

Whenever you get stuck, do a search here at WA. It's very likely that someone wrote a training or an article about it.

Good Luck:-)
That is great! Being Open-Minded is the best way to go when going for any goal!

Brilliant news - doesn't matter how much it is, you're proving this is all working for you - and whether it's $2 or $2000 - it's more than you had before you had it!! Writers block? You could write about exactly what you have above - people looking out for scams would (imho I believe) appreciate a real life story - even if you think it's a relatively low amount - it's a result. So do what you've done again, and you could end up with another $2.96 - bear in mind you already have online the first "post" that earned you your first $2.96 - so with the next amount of effort you may see $6, then $12, then $24 - again, doesn't matter at all how small it is - it's income you didn't have before!!

Very uplifting - all the best, Mark

Thanks for this post, I have hit a wall with my new site that aims to bring people into WA I have been lucky enough to earn 8 credits off of 28 invites and two of those became premium members. Not yet enough to be comfortable with just doing this as a profession but you are right, it is a mind games.

If this is what I can do in my first month of really putting WA's knowledge to the grinder, I am sure I will make it as a full time Affiliate Marketer.

Thank you :D

As you said Only you can defeat yourself :)

I you have some 'low hanging fruits' - researched keywords... get someone on Fiverr to write SEO article for you using the same keywords... Remember : more traffic will bring more commision...
