My first sale

Last Update: December 09, 2014

omg I can't believe it actually happened!!! I made my first sale yo! I had been waiting and waiting and writing and writing....and now I look and see that I made $25! AHHHHHHH! I am sooo pumped!!!

Now I just need to see if I can track how it happened so I can repeat it!

This is after 73 posts and 3 months so it takes some work. I hope that it creates a snowball effect and it doesn't take 3 more months to make another sale :)

Fantastic!
I'm going to use 73 as a finite number. I realise it has no relevance to anyone but you but if I say I will not look at any affiliate results until after I have written 73 posts I have a good reason to keep my head down and to keep writing.
Congratulations on your first of many sales - picture 4 of those a day!

Whooo hooo

Congratulations on your achievemnt so far :) 73 posts is a huge amount of content in only a short apsce of time, and you have accomplished in 3 months what most people would publish in a year, so well done!

From this point onwards, your site will continue to grow, Google will begin to trust it more and you'll receive more page 1 rankings.

You will start to see big changes in your income as you continue to move forward ;)

Andrea, I am happy for you. When I made my first sale of $8.00, I knew that I was on to something. As I read your profile, that you wrote 73 posts then it happen for you. What this made you realize was that it came to you over time, that you saw things come together for you. The lessons and videos that you applied showed you the way. This is only the beginning for you, much success on your journey.

Andrea, this just shows the principle of seed, time, and harvest. Your monthly payment to WA is your seed, I wrote this comment to you, 3 months ago, your harvest is your first sale. .Another principle is it's 'over time'. You are well on your way now

Congratulations, it's always good to see posts where people are making sales, it goes to show that this business is real.
I'm about 3 weeks into my first website writing content, but just going to keep adding posts and waiting......persistence always pays of in the end.

This is so awesome Andrea!

Success doesn't happen overnight and now that you know this works I'm sure it will have a snowball effect. That's how it played out for me. I got my first sale and a few days later I got 3 more.

Congrats on your first of many, many sales.
