Has it really been 1 month?
So, Sunday will be a double celebration for me. Of course, I will enjoy Valetine's Day with my beautiful bride of 16 years, and my 10 year-old son.
But, that won't be the only thing I will be celebrating. Sunday will mark 1 month that I have been part of the Wealthy Affiliates community. I'm just starting to get the hang of things, and find my way around the community, but it's been a joyous ride to say the least.
Here are a few things that I did NOT know 1 month ago that I now have a better understanding of and am well on my way to becoming an authority in my niche:
- Wealthy Affiliate - I have been trying to start a business for over 3 years, and every road seemed to have been a dead end until I found a review of Wealthy Affiliate by Nathaniell on his site http://onemorecupof-coffee.com/. Until then, I never knew something as helpful and successful existed. The training and community aspect of WA are phenomenal.
- How to Create a successful blog/affiliate marketing site - Actually, I had never heard of affiliate marketing before WA. I knew of writing a blog and using AdSense and selling your own products, but I had never heard of Affiliate Marketing as a way to monetize your site. Of course, I know now that I have used AM sites many times before in my life.
- How to find a niche market through keyword research - I love the Jaaxy tool and have loved the tutorials on how to find low hanging fruit and good quality keywords.
- How to develop a successful strategic plan for making money online - I had been researching different ways to make money and blog online, and was trying to piece it all together to find my way on my own...But, that's the beauty of WA. It all fits together in a nice package!
Not only have I found the tools to create my very own niche market website in the past month, but thanks to WA's "Pay It Forward" community approach, I now have a few comments on my blog posts and have started to generate a little traffic.
I am looking forward to learning more and more in the coming months to get my business off the ground so that I can one day end the 8-5 routine.
But, I think I'm actually looking forward to helping people, both through my site, as well as the WA community, MORE!
So, here's to 1 month, and many more to come.
Please reach out if I can help you in any way. If I don't know the answer, I will definitely help you find it.
