My Future at WA Is Still Bright
Hello Newbies, welcome to 2020.
2019 was tough for me, full of soul-searching; "should I go or should I come?" Luckily, there were shoulders to cry on - many sympathetic and helpful souls; and 'one sentence' helpers.
Here I am in 2020, still plugging in, ever determined to make it. My subscription has been renewed. A friend called me nuts for doing so after one year of no sales. You can guess correctly what was his alternative.
But to follow my friend's advice would be like throwing my 'beautiful baby' out with the bath water. My friend even refused to read my analysis of my problem, what kept me insisting there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel.
Did I really gain nothing from my one year with WA? The honest answer is that I gained something: Though no sales yet, but now I understand some lingo of the trade like: know what a website is and can build one with little help; I know what a theme, niche, internet marketing; affiliate programs; affiliate networks, etc, etc.
But why no sales yet, the training difficult? No, my case was not due to the level of difficulty of the training but the learning curve and the outcomes of an inexperience of an unguided newbie. If I were to do it again, I will not start alone. It is unbelievable that it was after one year at WA, for example, I came to know what a sitemap or meter description is and the importance. Note: Their tutorials have already been provided by Kyle and Carson and already in the training.
In retrospect, my undoing was pursuing the 'shinning ' object. At the beginning I used to hear, "work faster so that you start making money". No! If I were to do it again, I would not think of making money even after one year; unless, of course, I have a mentor holding my hands. My first year would be spent getting down three to five training.
All the facts stated above, my friend refused to consider. I still remember the advice from a (another) good friend here at WA,
If you are THAT frustrated, then my advice to you is... IF you are serious about learning to affiliate marketing... then, go back to the start and using a FREE theme that provides you with the basics... start recreating your old content if you want to keep your present niche.
If you want to change up your niche, then now would be the time to do so.
Please do NOT toss in the towel yet."
I did not take that advice seriously. Now, after one year, I'm rereading and taking the friendly council very seriously. How can I, in clear conscience, attribute my lack of success to the WA program itself when I have not even completed a training or followed the prescriptions of the program to the letter?
You understand why I renewed my subscription and have a firm belief that my future at WA is bright.
Happy New Year!
