Signing up for my 2nd year, even though I have made $0.00! WHY!
So some people might think that I am crazy. 'You made zero in your first year, what are you doing man!'
Let me explain why.
I started here by accident really. I was just having a look into how people made money on the interweb. I came across amazon affiliates, clickbank, WA, and a few others.
So I ended up signing up for my starter month, which then became a yearly membership.
I was pretty quick with coming up with my niche, I wanted to create an online version of an exercise program for back pain that I have shown to thousands of people over the past 10 years.
What I didn't realise was how much work it would take to build this website!
Between working my regular business, raising 2 kids (oldest in their final year of high school!) 6-7 days a week of sport, and throw in a house renovation! I don't know how I got anything done. But I did!
I have learnt A LOT!! From having absolutely no idea about any of this, I have created a paid membership website with 71 pages, 17 posts and over 100 comments . I have learnt to shoot, edit and upload videos (40 of them). I am still learning how to write high quality content, and to persist at it.
I have done quite a bit, but I have not made any $$ from it. Yet.
All the above has pretty much taken the full year in between everything else, and my course has only been open for a couple of weeks. So my view is that I am only at the very beginning of monetising it.
My mission for the next year is to focus on SEO and getting traffic. So far it has been slow, but it has not been my focus. Consistently writing quality content, engaging with comments, and refining what I already have, that is the plan.
The lesson here is, if you come here thinking it will be fast money, you are wrong. Some people do start making some cash quite early, but I think for most of us it takes time, as in years!
When I read about the more successful guys (and gals) here, they have all been in the game for years. That is my outlook, build a quality business that will last. It is the best way.
If anyone wants to check out my site it is.
I would love to hear from anyone with a background in marketing or website design with some tips for conversion.
Thanks, and have an amazing day!
