$425 worth of web updates yesterday.

Last Update: March 16, 2018

LOVE WHAT YOU DO. DO WHAT YOU LOVE.

I love designing websites for clients--it is very gratifying work! The people are all so wonderful, too. I've developed such a great rapport with them over the years.

One of my sites brought in $425 yesterday for updates I did. The owners were so appreciative, that I received this email:

Erin,

"Thank you for all you have done for us. Your hard work and loyalty was greatly appreciated. And we have been blessed with your friendship. Hope all is well with you."

Happy Easter.

Thank you again.

MY RESPONSE:

Thank you so much for this nice email, my dear, sweet, Mary!

It meant the world to me! I love working with all of you! XOXO

Happy Easter! :)!

All the best to you all! I'll be on stand-by if you need anything.

Erin :)!

PUTTING YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD.

Giving the best of yourself to those around you is worth so much more than money. Having the chance to prove your worth over and over again builds integrity and stamina.

MAKE WORK FUN!

I have some great clients, who are more than just business partners to me--they're friends. I guess it's because I'm drawn to really nice people and exert a friendly spirit around them. Yes, I earn a substantial amount on their updates and from their initial sales, but friendship outweighs everything! New clients are presenting themselves now--and just like here at Wealthy Affiliate, I am getting to know them just fine and building bonds for a lifetime!

Erin :)!

In the beginning, I went business to business looking for work. Now, I get mostly referrals. Just be persistent and smile a lot!

You have to believe in yourself more! You can do anything you put your mind to! Simply ask people if they have a web presence. There are so many that don't. It seems that so often I'm in the right place at the right time!

Things are looking up for you. I'm very pleased. Sounds like you have a natural business sense.

Kudos!

I hope that's true. In the usual business model-the type I did for forty years-only @3% succeed. (gruesome)

Considering I'm putting together an on line business site, I would hope there'll be more successful ones.

(I still say you're a natural.)

Well, I'm abiding by the training which I sometimes feel I'm a newbie at., even though I've been designing sites for clients for over 25 years--and I love it so much!

Yea. That makes all the difference, online. I can run a brick and mortar business all day long, but putting a website together (techie stuff) is a whole nuther matter. I'm trying to get my head straight on this. Right now, it feels fat and flabby. Totally not in shape.
Reply
herinnelson Premium
You will be! Just keep up with the training and go over it twice if you have to, like I had to do! You'll get there!

Thank you for the encouragement. I'm looking forward to the leaner, stronger Online Me.

There' one thing that's the same about the two styles of business. Helping people. That's all we're really doing.

That's enough for me.

Cheers!

I love the whole local Seo thing.

I built a website when I first started out for a local business that was loosing money.

I just said If I could generate a business then when I did They would pay me a commission.

I now have 20% commission and the traffic I have brought in has been from Location Managers etc. BBC ITV. All big film companies.

They pay really good money just for the day.
I have never looked back . :-)

Great work Erin!! You are an inspiration.
I need some help figuring out how to capitalize on my Juice Plus website and the social media links that Juice Plus corporate uses. I'm going to send you a private message on this. It will be later today, as the question(s) are quite involved.
Thanks for everything you do. Sure hope I get to meet you in Vegas!!!
