Woke up to a $168 Commission!

Last Update: September 09, 2016

What a great way to wake up, an email from WA waiting in my Inbox telling me I made $168 while I was asleep!

My biggest single commission yet. The feeling is great and it just reinforces my belief in Wealthy Affiliate and the teachings.

It took a while to get to where I am, I have been in WA over a year now. But the one thing I will not do, is GIVE UP.

SO if you are new here and struggling to make any money, my message to you is simple.

KEEP AT IT!

Success does not come all at once, it is gradual, so keep planting seeds.

Have a great weekend all,

Dave

Sure, but don't know when I'll get to doing it though - will definitely do it and if you're waiting longer than you want please chase me up, I really don't mind.
Could you leave a comment on my site too please, especially www.neverloseabet.siterubix.com - also if you don't mind on the KB section of makemorecashonline.com

You said it right Dave. You never quit. If you would have quit you would have had no chance of earning an extra income. The more you do, the more you get. Keep moving forward.

How long was after you started to get your first commission?
Reply
dragolith Premium
Well it is hard to say, I had some smaller commissions not long after I started. I was in all kind of programs, including a few which turned out to be scams. I didn't really start properly promoting WA until this year as I was working on other sites.

It's different for everybody, but it was a matter of months from starting to promote WA properly that I made this commission.
Reply
paulkaz Premium
Yes, there are so many scams out there and so many people promoting all sorts of stuff with a promise of quick riches. These "opportunities" are usually targeted at the newbies out there so a healthy dose of scepticism is required.

To anyone who is tempted to fall for it ask yourself 2 questions:

(1) If it was that quick and easy wouldn't more people be doing it?

(2) Why would someone, having discovered the easy path to instant riches, want to share it with the whole world (usually for about $17)? Surely they would be far to busy making money...

This is why the WA opportunity is different. There are no promises of quick riches, fast money or an easy 10 hour working week with the rest of the time spent on the beach sipping cocktails.

You have to work and work hard to make it work but this is no different to any other opportunity. Most successful people that I know work much harder than practically everyone else. That is why they are successful.

There are degrees, of course. Success for some may be just $1,000 a month whilst for others that is measured at $10,000 a month.

However, the one thing that is common to both is that four letter word - WORK.

Congrats Dave, this is evidence that slow and steady wins the race.

I think where most of us struggle is seeing the end result so it is inspiring to see posts like yours which show that the process works.

Congrats Dave, well done and I am sure this is just the beginning. What niche is the website in and was it through organic traffic only?
Reply

Thanks! My main site is in Make Money Online niche. Could have been organic, hard to track these days. I do paid traffic too, also email marketing and Youtube so could be any of the above where they originated!

Good Work.

Was this from organic traffic or PPC?

If it was organic then I recommend using PPC to increase your sales. You now know which content converts so now you can increase the traffic using PPC dust increasing the potential sales if you like.
