So February is was a tough month for my site and others. There seemed to be less traffic around the week of Valentine's Day and it's just a shorter month. But despite that I was able to earn $9465.05 with my affiliate site. Imagine what a full month would have looked like without the holiday! lol I pieced together a screenshot of my income from the various programs that earn me revenue on my site.
How Did I Do It?
There is no magical secret. I pretty much follow what the training lays out. But if you want more specifics then read my cheat sheet here.
WA Membership Has It's Perks
So a lot of times I see members wondering if it's worth investing in going premium. That's been a resounding yes for me since 2007 when I first joined. Aside from the technology and training, the members are a huge benefit. Essentially you get to rub elbows with successful people you normally wouldn't have access to.
So that said, the $2024.95 and $2128 I earned this month was a result of chatting with two other successful WA members. I make it a habit to look at others sites in my niche to get inspired and borrow ideas. I take it step further and ask questions if they happen to be WA members. I did that recently and it led to an additional $4000 this month and that number will grow every month just because of a few quick private messages.
Now keep in mind that my blog is established and trusted by Google. So it gets tons of traffic. But regardless watching what others were doing, asking a few questions and taking action has led to another source of revenue every month. So regardless of my traffic it would have added more money than I was currently making. It's just compounded because I have a lot of traffic. You can increase your traffic as well by following Jay's 10 Steps here.
Return The Favor
Another thing to note, is that I shared some information about things I was doing that I didn't see these other members were doing to return the favor. Some of this information I shared will help them earn more money as well. I didn't just take their advice without offering something in return. Too often I see people in the gimme mindset but don't provide anything back. It's very selfish and will make people less likely to help you.
I can't tell you how many private messages I've ignored or cut short because the person was rude or all about themselves. Folks have literally contacted me without even saying and just jump into how I need to help them. WTF?
This community is all about helping each other not just taking. So be mindful of that when chatting with other members.
Are You Inspired?
Hopefully you are. I've been at this game for many moons. But I always find that hearing about other's success inspires me especially if I'm feeling down. It reminds me if they can do it, so can I. So I need to keep pushing forward until I do. Rather than making excuses why this doesn't work for me.
You have all the resources here to achieve your goals. I've already linked to some content above that you should refer to if you want to achieve similar results in the future. So be sure you review it before you ask, how can I do this too? lol
Shout out to the two members that provided me their simple tips. I would list the two members here but I don't want to blow up their spots and have them flooded with messages. LOL Because they have their own businesses they need to run. But I've provided you the inspiration and some of the resources above to make this happen for you.
I hope this helps. Let's see what happens next month!
