Dara's Progress: Month 3
Month #3 - December 2015
It should go without saying that December was a busy month! Distractions ran high and I did not spend as much time adding content to my site as I should have.
Last month's success with my Amazon commissions was mainly due to timing. I happened to be on Amazon at midnight when they began their $35 Kindle Fire promotion, and I linked it to all of my social media presences (including my personal Facebook page) with the catchy "OMG!" title that Jimbo illustrates here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/bobtosh/blog/omg-t...
I got many clicks and many sales just sharing that awesome sale at just the right time.
That said, my Amazon commissions for December were lower than in November, but they did still exist!
Since I upgraded to yearly last month, and didn't subscribe to Jaaxy in December, I had no expenses at all!
Amazon Affiliate Commissions: $16.65
Wealthy Affiliate Commissions (still only one premium referral): $22.50
Total Income = $39.15
Profit or Loss?
Income - Expenses = Profit or (Loss)
$39.15 - $0 = $39.15 Profit for the Month
Year to Date Profit or Loss = $105.63 - $399 = (-293.37)
Month 2 Takeaway:
I need to listen to my own advice and focus on my content! I plan on doing more product reviews in addition to my home solutions posts in order to generate more sales.
I'd also like to work on my social media presence a little more and try to grow my following. I'm going to spend a lot of time on here looking at those types of trainings.
Goals for Next Month:
- More content!
- Clean up my site menu and categories to improve the flow
- Rewrite my little WA promo page
- Social Media improvements
That was month 3! I don't have much more advice to add besides what I wrote last month, which is to focus on content (I need to listen to myself!) and don't keep looking at your stats.
I do want to add that your rank here at Wealthy Affiliate has no bearing on your success as an affiliate marketer, so if you're relatively new or haven't heard it before, don't worry about focusing on it. My rank is 173 right now, only because I write and respond and try to be helpful where I can be, it's not something I'm working on and it's not on my list of goals.
Thanks for reading!
