WA Training Works - Sales Update!

Last Update: May 12, 2019

Hey everybody, I thought I would update you all on my sales for my fishing niche website. I sold my second item through one of my reviews. It's my second one in about a month and a half. Only $1.62 but it's something. It was an amazon product. The first one I sold I got a .76 cents commission on so I have over doubled my profits!

It's small but it shows that the training here at WA does work if you work it. The sale I made came from a product review I did back in January. I had totally forgotten about it.

Just be patient and in time you will start seeing results. They probably won't be huge results at first but they will come. I started this website back in late November when I first joined Wealthy Affiliate. So it's been about 6 months and I got my first sale around the 4-month period. I'm about on track on how long the training tells use that we will start seeing results.

My advice... Keep cranking out product reviews and quality content. Keep practicing the training here and you will see results. Be patient and your success will come just don't ever give up. Success is just around the bend!

Happy Mother's Day!

Cheers,

Little drops of water a lake make, or some such similar sentiment.

Congratulations on your sales, I'll be watching your progress with great interest.

That's a good start, Cory. My first commission was 0.65 cents two months after joining WA. So yeah, the training here works.

That's great. I was prepared for it taking some time.

I also have a question. I am on level 2 of my training and Kyle did show how to look at affiliate websites for selling products for commission. Do I wait until I am done with all 10 levels of training before signing up with affiliate websites? When did you sign on with affiliate sites? I am still setting up my website but it is indexed by google. I am writing my articles currently.

Hi Terri,

I signed up for affiliate marketing and began adding the links to my site when it was gone through in the lessons. I followed the training step by step and added them when the training said to. If you are to the point where you do that, then go for it. I know it was way before all ten levels were done... I just don't remember when.

Best wishes,
Karin 😁

Thanks for your reply Karin. I got so caught up in key words and other parts of the training. I did check out affiliate websites in the training and I saved them. Time to sign up with them.

Thanks,
Terri

That's where it starts tough, right? 6 months in and you are already starting to see results. Couldn't ask for more (well... you could but we need to be realistic... right?)

There is nowhere to go but up. Field of Dreams quote: If you build it they will come. So keep building.

Keep Moving Forward,
Wayne

Congrats Cory. The great thing is that people must be finding their way to your site. Also it must be more than one person when you consider the conversion rate for your product.
I wish you all the success in building up your business.

You are definitely a great encourager!

Thank you for spurring us on to greater heights for it can get very discouraging when it seems that nothing is happening.

I've been reading a lot of the posts by members who have fought the journey on the difficult road to success and persevered, and yes it takes time and sometimes you think, "Is it all worth it?"
.... and when you're just about to throw in the towel...
People like you come along and encourage us to persevere.

One thing I will say is that most people who do the training expect to see results within 1-3 months... that is not normally the case... Kyle points out in the training that to be reasonable, we need to give it at least a year to 18 months before we can REALLY see some income coming in, and even then it's not guaranteed.

But as you so correctly point out, our focus should not be on the income, our focus should be on creating content and doing that until it comes out of our ears, which I believe would never happen, so just keep blogging! :-)

The ultimate focus should be on BUILDING A BUSINESS!
If we treat our niche market as a business, we will be more serious about making it work.
I know my outlook changed once that penny dropped and I believe it makes a huge difference to the way you write your content and you're more focused to achieving the goals posted in SiteContent.

At first it seems an insurmountable task to achieve the goals set, but if you just start writing and write from the heart as if you were having a conversation with someone about what you want to help others with, you will be TOTALLY SURPRISED to see that you will reach your goal every time!

Try it! You can do it!

Regards

I'm about the same as you 6 months in, I have had sales and my earnings so far are around £40. About 7 sales. Keep at it, it will get better with better rankings that will surely come. I am still as excited as when I first joined. But if I told people, I had paid $350 and worked for 6 months for £40, they would look at me funny. It takes a strongly motivated person to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Yeah, it does take motivation and persistence to continue. We all need to believe in ourselves and success will come in due time! If it was easy everyone would be doing it.
