This is what happens with 6 months effort
I started a website about 6 months ago, with no intention of even monetizing the thing. After 6 months of adding content and being a member of WA, I realised I could maybe sell some niche related items.
I have a WooCommerce store linked up to Amazon affiliate products (only about a dozen). In the last couple of months, analytics shows that Impressions are really taking off and affiliate commissions are starting to materialize. I’m now heavily optimising the product pages to maximise clicks and CTR, and hence the commissions.
For those asking about ‘how long will it take?’, this is a realistic example.
Don’t quit after only 1 month, give your business a chance to grow before you evaluate whether it’s working or not.
