Kaboom! Commission Earned- Yay!
Last Update: Jul 28, 2021
Recently, I checked my email with one of them saying, "Congratulations! Affiliate Sale." Well, I have to say it was a bit unexpected.
It's been a while since I've made commissions, so I was pleased to read it.
I received this commission from a website I don't update often. Generally, I write posts once or twice a month, but I still get traffic, and a lot of the posts rank well in the search engines.
The product review I wrote for this program is nearly a year old, and I was disappointed with it for some time. I thought it might be one of those posts where it won't end up converting.
As it turned out, I earned my first commission from this product review I wrote last year. Also, the payout is generous, so not too bad on the commission.
Lessons Learned and Revisited
Getting started with affiliate marketing and creating a website isn't always easy. As other Wealthy Affiliate members have noted, this business can bring surprises (and it's fun)! It's good to look at my recent commission as another example.
As Kyle mentioned before, the dividends (the payouts) typically don't show up until later on. For some of us, our objective is to build businesses that can be significant digital assets over time.
Achieving success may not happen right away. The massive success or payoffs may not occur for another 5-10 years on a long-term horizon. That's the time horizon I can see exponential growth for my online business(es).
The excellent product review (after editing, getting the basic SEO together, inserting affiliate links, and sharing on social media) may not yield commissions tomorrow or next week. But sometimes, it may take a year or more until the payoffs come to your door.
Eventually, that one product review (or multiple of them) can pay you generously several years down the road. That can turn into a nice income stream (and lucrative if you choose high commission affiliate programs).
I think it's a neat lesson on mindset and creating wealth. Developing a rich mindset is something I struggled with early on. But I am getting better at it (instead of a poor mindset where people work for money, then spend most of it with a little leftover).
But that is a topic for another post!
Since that product review is ranking well, I'll update it soon. It's an excellent time to get in a position to convert better. In addition, I'll continue to revisit the training and take advantage of the weekly webinars.
My recent commission was possible due to the Wealthy Affiliate training (OEC). If you're someone who is in doubt whether it works, think again.
If you're starting out, go through (and revisit) the training and take action when needed. I believe that it works, and it will work if you take action.
If you're still not seeing results, don't give up. Quitting is the ultimate failure. If you were like me lately, keep in mind that you need to keep going. You never know when your first (or next commission) will come.
It may be sooner than later- or should I say:
IT WILL HAPPEN!
It takes discipline, effort, and patience to see the results that you want. Your time will come.
To those who are struggling or new, keep going. You have come to the right place to start an online business and succeed.
