Hi all,

I am deciding if i should go on a premium membership. I have 1 day 23 hours 41 minutes and 56... 55... 54 seconds to go before my trial expires. How long does it take for you to earn your first dollar from the time you start creating your website? Are there any additional costs involved other than getting a domain name?

Thanks for your responses in advance!

P.S.: I want to read about your experience. Please do not just give me a generic statement of "you sow what you reap". I understand that concept. Thanks! :)

Dear all,

Thanks to the quick responses by all you good people here, I have decided to commit to my education and success in affiliate marketing. I am going premium! I have 2 niches in mind, (1) travel and dining niche, and (2) promote WA?.

Should I start with both at the same time or should I try out 1 at a time? Would love your feedback! Thanks!

If I was you I would focus on one thing at a time and I would go for the travel and dining niche (though you will need to break it down more.

Try one at a time is my advise. You may want to consider WA first by taking the Affiliate Bootcamp lessons. You could also promote your travel and dining niche as well by taking the Certificate lessons. Both will give you the information to achieve success. Follow the lessons as presented and do not skip lessons. Debbie

Thanks BIS! Hah, I was just reading your blog a few moments ago. Good stuff!
Would just travel be good enough to develop an authority site? I was actually thinking of crossing my interest of travel and finding good eats overseas. Looking forward to your reply.

Hi auden. I've been here a month now…not much experience to speak of. I am very excited about WA. The tools and training are here to be successful if you are determined and work hard at all of the things Kyle says to do. Kyle and Carson are the masters!

You are the your own destiny. None of us can give you a direct time line as to when you will earn your first dollar. It is all based upon the audience you target and the product/service you are promoting. Remember your website will reach out to the world in which there are 2 billion people on the internet. It will take time to get traffic to your site. So you need to be patient. What works for me may not work for you. I am getting a trickle of income this month.

Also, @Rich's comments are true and pretty accurate to what you can expect.

Thanks for sharing Debbie. Yes I do know that it is up to me but I am interested in the experience of others too. Glad to know that you have income coming in. What is the age of your current site? :)

I started here on September 14, 2013. My website was live on that day or the next day. Debbie

Definitely worth doing. I rearranged some personal finances so I could pay for Premium. This was an investment in my education and became a priority for me and I haven't regretted that decision. Hope this helps.

Hey Rick, thanks! Do you mind sharing a little more about your experience building the website and your first dollar?

I followed the Boot Camp training to promote WA. I had to be Premium to move past Phase 1 so I could continue to learn. As a result I have been earning commissions. You will need to decide if you want to do the Certification training or the Boot Camp training.

I earned mine in less than a week, but I already have online business experience. I think you should try it for a month, as that's a minimal cost and there are no hidden fees to bite you. The domain is pretty much it. I love that site hosting is included here.

Cool, thanks. I guess that experience helped a little?

So far cost is concerned @RICH has explain at length. So far earning is concerned will depend on how fast you learn. It is upto you only.

Yes I know. That's why I asked for the time duration so I can make an estimate of my own speed and possible earnings. And I want to hear from other people's experience. :)

For the moment just $10 domain name for one year, i don t know if we will need to pay other things in the future, probably YES, i am new too and i am still building my site. In my opinion you should buy first month it s only 19$, i already have a lots of credit from inviting other people to pay the next month. Take my advise and buy it, you wont regret. Just do what i did, if you don t like it you have an entire month to invite 19 people and you will get your money back.
GOOD LUCK!

Did you share it with friends or it is through your niche? Now I'm really keen to join the premium membership. :)

I share it with my friends, i have a group of friends on facebook and we all are trying to do something online. and i also have a simple blog about WA describing it. I am not doing BOOTCAMP. My niche is about E-cigs, mods and stuff...
Sorry for my english

Hey Jane. OK, in the interests of transparency, I have three busted niches and half-a-dozen abandoned websites behind me, and it took me 6-7 months to start earning properly. I arrived with zero knowledge and had a full time job so it was a bit of a long haul in my case. I've been at WA 18 months, and I now earn my living entirely online, working a few hours a day, so it's obviously been the best investment I ever made in myself, as far as I'm concerned. I'd definitely recommend you give this a read: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/how-long-has-it-taken-you-to-earn-what-you-earn WA is all inclusive, it's $47 per month ($19 for the first month within 7 days) or $359 per annum which is c. $30 per month or less than a $1 a day. There is nothing else to buy here at WA, no "upsells" whatsoever. I joined when there was no open door policy, you had to pay to get in and I signed up annual before my first month expired, I was that "sure" this was for me. Here's wishing you every success! :) Rich.

Wow thanks for the sharing. I am wondering if you are promoting WA for your niche or is it some other non IM niche?
Reply
@RICH. Premium
No. I haven't promoted WA beyond friends and family and I didn't affiliate them. The IM and MMO niches bore me to tears, nothing wrong with them, just they don't interest me at all. I'd rather do something I'm passionate about, so my niche is in the "travel" sector. :) R.

Thanks Rich! I love that niche too! Bitten by the travel bug.
