Finally! I lost My Virginity!
Hi WA'rriors and WA'rrorettes,
Finally I did it! and it was darn amazing! and I now know what that awesome afterglow feels like after pounding and working away for what sames like ages..exhausted, tired and, yes a little sweaty!!
What a truly joyful fabulous feeling.....truly, there is nothing quite like it on earth
...........I checked my stats!
I crossed the $1000 in earning in a single month!
I had just lost my $1000/month virginity!..
What an amazing feeling!
It may have taken 2 years but hey, it is not how long you take to complete the race that counts, its is finishing the race!, getting there and achieving the goal that counts.
Must say after reaching that goal (and earning $350 in half a week). I am absolutely vibrant about what can be achieved this year and in coming years.
for example, and as an example of how a blog can grow over time
year 1 (2016) I earned something like $1800 in total
Year 2 (2017) over $5700 (just over triple)
Year 3...well.. I'm off to a flying start already and January is usually one of the slower months compared to 2017..(this January well, just over 4x the $260 of January 2017).
Whats more, I doubled my clicks from December 2017 to January 2018 (one month) and improved conversions slightly and earnings per 1000 visitors. I do attribute this reaching out to my sponsor and very experienced niche marketer Nathaniel (thanks buddy) in a email conversation and making just one of a few changes suggested.
And boy! I'd have never guessed or though I'd double my clicks in a single month by just having clickable affiliate links behind the photo of the products I was reviewing. Ever so simple, and yes, I do feel a little like a dufus for not having them in the first place.
Naturally and I think forward and keep up with and increase my content strategy to posting 25x per month I am very excited about what can be achieved with a site that relies solely on SEO for traffic (currently 18.5k sessions monthly and growing).
More exciting thing is I only work on my site for one hour per day, outsourcing the creation of content to freelacing writers, and there is still a couple of other tips that Nathaneil suggested that I have absolutely zero doubt will further improve my clicks and sales, thus improve my rather low EPM (Earnings Per Mille, (1000 visitors)).
Onwards and upwards and now gunning for first consistency and hitting $1000 at least every month and a very achievable $3000 for Q1 2018.
Nothing, quite beats the feeling of breaking your income record in two consecutive months...and losing your $1,000/month virginity.
P.S..If you though the opening and introduction was about something else, you really need to clean out your mind! haha!
