I know this has been said a lot, especially in WA.
I'm sure I heard it more times than I can count but believe it or not, after all these years doing online marketing, I've just realised this NOW, today!
Today I would like to share with you some proof that success really does take time. Hopefully this quick post will help you understand this concept a little bit better and helps you "ride the wave" till you reach your own success(es).
Here is an image of my Google Analytics of the past 2 years:
This chart shows my blog's traffic for the past 2 years, and as you can see, it is just now taking off.
I have to tell you, there were many times in those "white areas" in the chart where I really wanted to just pack it in, and I did.
There were times where I took "a break" from writing content BUT I always got back to it.
It was only in late 2015 / early 2016 that I've decided to approach this with a "do or die" mentality, and as you can see; my efforts are paying off.
The traffic of this website is for my main one that promotes Wealthy Affiliate, and here are the results of adopting my new mentality:
Vegas? Could It Be?
At the time of writing this post (March 2016), I have already matched my income for this blog for the entire 2015.
My income from Wealthy Affiliate has been increasingly steadily due to all the members I have joining now, but to be honest, I am more motivated by the goal of making Vegas rather than making money.
Will I make it to Vegas?
To be honest, I don't really think I will get to Vegas in 2017 because my calculations so far show that I will miss out by about 50 affiliate signups.
Obviously this is just me taking an average of these past first few months of the year and multiplying them by 12.
This "trend" may go downwards or upwards tomorrow so I am not sure exactly where I will be by the end of this year.
However, I am dead sure, like it's already in the bag in my mind, that I will definitely be attending Vegas 2018.
Some Inspiration For You
I'm not the one to deliver motivational speeches but I would like you to view this story with a bit more optimism about where your online business is going.
If you don't think you're getting the results you want, just give it some more time and keep moving forward and I guarantee you; you will be another WA success story in no time.
