Q4 report From 0-30K! And my first year at WA!

Last Update: January 06, 2017

Hi there WA' rriors and WA' rriorettes,

Gonna keep this quick and easy!

Q4 2016 marked the end of a year at WA.

Earnings were up approximately 50% from Q3 so yeah..heading in the right direction

$750, is not much to shout about but it is progress and lets face it, slowly,surely and steadily is the way to grow a business and obtain sustainability.

Traffic is up to, having hit 4,000 sessions for the first time in November,

Zero to 30k is only a slight exaggeration more like 29k and few hundred. Starting from a standing start of zero that is awesome! (I'm talking my yearly traffic here!)

Think about it Gone from an meagre idea for a niche site, a subject I had zero knowledge on just a "oh this niche can make money" to building a site that is earning money and getting 4,000 visitors monthly (well on track for that January 2017 so far).

Got my first sale ever in February - boy! I was the happiest $3.40 millionaire ever! First crazy $200 day in April followed by a $145 day end of May and similar days in July and November,

(Days like that just get your juice going and motivate you to just keep at it especially when the sales dial is stuck at zero!)

SEO wise, good god! I was really scared of SEO a year back..even the though of it would send me shaking and into a cold sweat!

Well a year later nailed on 4 top slots and 40 pages 1's and over a dozen top 3's! and currently over 70% of my traffic is SEO based!

(just for the record I do zero off page seo no link building or anything (sure I got'em but they occurred naturally)

So, in the worse case scenario (i.e in the very unlikely event of my site not making money), I believe I could set up an on page SEO service.

This year in 2017 I believe my site will start to snowball, going by the case study by itsvicky.com (WA member) and having a good look at the stats openly available. So the goal is $1800 monthly by the end of December 2017 and 25k traffic monthly.

Also as site continues to grow I'll scale up outsourcing of content. I have only started doing that slowly. Note you are "outsourcing your content" You are hiring an employee on a per job basis. Treat them as such. Inspire them, compliment them, let them know how pleasurable it is working with them, give a little Christmas New year wishes and a small tip .. all goes a long way to keeping them and having them happy to take on jobs that you request and to send you quality content.

A quality writer, is not worth $15 for a 1000 words They are worth much more! Old OScar Wilde Phrase of cost and value springs to mind!

Education goal is to select just one PPC network and truly master PPC ads. Starting small budget of say $20-$30 weekly and just reinvesting the profits made! This will give me an additional skill set in my repertoire (you know adwords and fb ads experts can charge $100/hr --if you doubt me go check Up work!)

Also to do at least one out reach post per month.

I have expanded to add in one more blog, and I'll keep to my 15 posts per site content goal (last month despite holidays I created about 50 articles of which a ready and waiting to be published - great for the days when I am a bit sick like now and don't feel like focusing on creating content)

Here its bigger better and more success in 2017 for all WA'rriors and WA'rriorettes.

Derek.

P.S All figures are real and can be verified.Zero paid traffic used. I added the financials more for those who are new and just started can see that yes, the WA method works, and to stick with and trust the process, Some make more, some less, that is just the nature of all things. Just Keep plugging away.
