Slow and steady wins the race
This moring I looked at my anylitics and I saw that my traffic doubled overnight. It's still just a handfull of people, but they are showing up from several countries. I have yet to make a sale, but I did make $16 with adsence. Yes, I know this might seem like nothing to most of you, but this confirms that fact that it is working.
I started WA on January 2nd 2018, and I hit the ground with everything I had. I wrote content like it was going out of style. My websites (one for writing one for cooking) were really taking shape. I was told that I should be seeing sales withing the first ninty days, but it didn't happen. I was working myself to death and seeing no results. After burning myself out, I quit telling myself that WA didn't work.
After a three month break, I received a generated letter from Kyle, offering me a chance to come back. Since I had invested so much time in WA, I took the oppertunity to see if I could figure out where I messed up. After a couple week of dilligent work, I discovered where my mistake was. I am a good writer (I think) and I had writen over 50 articles, but I never filled in the bottom parts of the content page. I had unintentionally been leaving the title and the page explaination black, which gave the people searching on Google nothing to search for.
My point is this... Wealthy Affiliate is a huge community. When I saw that I was not succeeding, I should have stepped back and asked for help. I should have gone over that training again, and found what i was doing wrong. There is no clock on your progress here. I realize the ranking system can be fristrating, but it's just a number that keep the WA community competitive, and has nothing to do with the progress of your personal business.
Give yourself a break. You are striving for a better life for you and your loved ones, and it isn't easy. Don't compare yourself to others... most of them have been at this a lot longer than you have. Be patient, and it will come. Now, go have a blessed and Awesome WA day!
