My Site Made Its First Sale Today
I just wanted to share the excitement!
My new site, which has been my sole focus since January (see my progress reports for exactly what I've been doing), just made its first sale! I now have $19 sitting waiting for me at ShareASale.
This is a lot sooner than I expected, as I'm in a competitive niche and review high value products. I was hoping to start seeing some sporadic sales maybe in a few months time, not this early.
It's so great to see this first sale. I've been struggling with my motivation, but pushing myself to stay consistent with posting content to my site. This sale has been just what I needed for a little confidence boost. It's kind of like that first time your baby smiles at you after those first weeks of exhaustion, haha.
I know that this is not the start of a great rush of sales, and that things will be inconsistent and slow for a while yet. But it's so exciting to have reached this first milestone towards making my site profitable.
