My Personal Progress So Far: I'm loving WA!
Hello WA community,
I'm just writing to share my progress so far at the five month point in my online business journey. I sort of thrust myself into this online marketing world because I got laid off from my full-time job as an architectural job captain.
It's not quite the journey I had envisioned when I went to grad school to get my Masters. It's pretty much the second time I've been laid off since moving down to Houston. I made it a duty and obligation of mine to seek out a way to create passive income for myself because a 9 to 5 job is anything but secure.
I began my first website in the health and wellness niche focusing on providing readers with information on the best energy supplements and targeting casual athletes who aren't looking to bulk up at the gym. There is already tons of those bodybuilding and athletic websites. I wanted it to be a casual place where someone around my age range can find great resources on how to improve their energy the safe way and without pressure of salesy health product websites.
Through WA, I've learned an amazing amount of information on how to set up my own website, write blog articles in my niche, perform keyword research, create a social media presence, and follow up with email marketing for list building. My earnings aren't quite where I want them to be, as I have been involved in other marketing endeavors that have also been time consuming.
There is so much to learn when it comes to video marketing, effective ad creation, solo ads, email marketing, ebook and digital product creation, and plugins for membership sites. I feel like I've been somewhat distracted with all of the ways of speeding up the SEO process that I've neglected the consistency of writing once every week.
I've at least made a few sales with over a hundred dollars worth of revenue, but not stable enough yet to replace my income. I am working on a new niche website for affiliate marketing that will document my journey and hopefully be able to help someone make the transition quicker than I have. I feel like I have learned many lessons outside of WA that can also be applied to the platform in terms of landing pages versus a click funnel.
It's been a fascinating journey so far and I can't wait to keep steaming ahead on my new website. In the next few months, I hope to be able to learning the ropes of video marketing and tying my own Youtube channel to my blog to increase the SEO reach, That is, assuming of course, that Youtube doesn't crash any more times.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to updating you guys on my progress and growing the platform to others to share the love!
