So, I know there are always lots of folks wanting to know how much can you make doing this, or how fast will you start making money. There is no general answer that fits everyone. It's all up to you. Everyone is different. Some get things going fast and make money soon. Others take awhile.

Also, asking folks how much they make can be a little delicate and most don't like to share that information. But, so that you know there is hope for you out there I can give you an idea of my progress. As you can see, it's not a "get rich quick" deal. But, you do the math; If I can improve my income at the same rate thi

It took me nearly a year to the day before I made any income from my internet business. And when I did, it was $.46. Yes CENTS. From Amazon. But you would've thought it was $46,000. I was thrilled. Soon afterwards, I started getting a sale here and there. One or two with Jaaxy, then one with another affiliate program, then another through my website, etc. My first month was the $0.46 but the next was $39. After that, the next month was $89 and improved monthly then leveled off at around $300.

My big hope was one day breaking $100 for the day. THAT would be a milestone for me. I realize that being patient and constantly work on your business will bring rewards. Of course, I do have some overhead. I love playing with PPC and so there's expense there, but I've learned how to tinker with all my campaigns and scale a bit. Also, there's the monthly fee at WA, BUT, hey, it's my ed-u-ma-cation! This is my career to be! And the student fees here are a lot less than a student loan to become a doctor and it's feasible to make way more than a doctor! So, I don't even consider that an expense.

Anyway, this week, I finally had a day that I broke $100, BUT, not only did I break $100, but I brought in $398! BAM! What a rush! So, at the moment for this month I'm at around $660. Do you think that motivates me to work even more? You bet it does! As you can see, it's not a "get rich quick" deal. But, you do the math; If I can improve my income at the same rate that I have thus far, in five years, I'll be at about $5000 a month. Would you not be happy with that? If not, shoot higher!

Anyway, folks, this is just to show you that this is real. It's NOT a get rich quick deal, but if you stay at it, and work consistently, (which I have NOT been doing as of lately bc life has been getting in the way), you can build a nice steady income. My goal with all of this is to gradually segue into this as my retirement income to take a little stress off of this body of mine. And, as I've already started doing, I can run this business from any beach of my choosing!

All in all, in a nutshell, I, personally, didn't make any money for a year, and then in the next six months I got back what I had put into it and got in the "black" as far as my Income/Expense Report goes.

Hope this gives some of you an idea. Like I said, everyone is different. You may be doing three times what I do in three months. Or, you may go two years without a thing. It's all up to you.

Happy blogging!

Grant

p.s.

Everything I have implemented to achieve an income from the internet, I have learned how to do here at Wealthy Affiliate. I've went through the WA Affiliate Program and right now, I"m actually going through the Certification Course again. You'd be surprised on how much you miss and/or forget! So, yes WA is well worth it and if you haven't joined yet, shame on you. You can't begin to make money unless you take action. Just click on the green "join now" button at the top of this page and sign up for free! A No-Brainer!!

UPDATE:

For the month of June I ended up bringing in $850. Close to my next goal of $1000 for the month. :-) Back to work!

UPDATE:

For the month of July, I brought in $906. Back to work!!

UPDATE:

For August and September; $545 and $442. My wife's mom passed away and her dad has been in ER five times in last six weeks, so, I hadn't done much work those last two months. However, it's good to know I brought money in pretty much on autopilot.

UPDATE; Check out the latest goal reached in my on-going search for financial success!

Hi Grant,
Thank you so much for describing your journey. Your story is very motivating! I am so sorry for your wife's parents. It is good to know that even when you can't actively work, you still have some income "on autopilot".
I read your first $1000 month blog too. Congratulations!
All the best to you,
~ Julia

Encouraging. I just need to can my WA site and start a new site. 20 months of building a site that was a flop. Its hard starting over but I may do it if I see others doing it.

Not sure if I could do that, David. I've still got mine, and getting clicks through it to my other affiliate markets. What seems to really be drawing the majority of my traffic to my website are the reviews. I'm sure you have quite a few. I check Google Analytics daily through the users flow tab to see where each visitor is initially going to and work from there. I wouldn't say a site is a flop if you're offering helpful info and doing what YOU wanted to achieve. I just added another site and keep feeding my original WA site. I believe over time, traffic will keep improving. Anyway, everyone is different with different outlooks. You gotta roll with your gut. Great seeing you around here, tho!

Yea Surf. Don't throw in the towel on your website yet. You may need to make some tweaking here or there. Grant is right on the reviews & checking your Google Analytics daily to see where your visitors are most active.

I have been promoting Amazon products for the past 4 months & haven't gotten a sale yet but I'm not about to give up cause it's just a matter of time.

Grant is right. Tweak & keep your original site. Set-up another site & see where it leads.

Good luck & I wish you great success. Stay positive!

After being off WA for MONTHS due to an event sending my world off kilter, I'm so encouraged reading your post above.
Perseverance, time and energy do pay off!
I like how excited and happy you were when you earned $0.46. To me, that's truly inspiring.
Thank You!

Love it Grant! It's certainly a journey unique to each, and full of struggle and distraction. I think the biggest key for a beginner is having a system like this where not only are all the technical building blocks included but the community is there to support.

That said, the biggest challenge is sometimes avoiding the shiny object syndrome. There are so many marketers out there selling the next best thing, and when someone is struggling they often reach for those as if they were lifelines but they turn out to be taking them further away from the problem itself - lack of focus and persistence!

Enjoyed the post, great read :)

I wish there were more stories like this. This is what I like to see someone working on their business and then turning a profit. If you don't want to make money then you probably wouldn't be here at all. Congratulations and I hope you have continued success.

Such an honest post that helps me put the time frame to make money into perspective. I've been with WA since March 2017 and at first thought I would see results a bit faster, but have found that building a site is much more involved tan just writing content. FOr me , that's the easy part. It's the techie stuff that stumps me for a bit longer.
Thanks for posting this Grant. It's much appreciated!
