Four Years of WA Vegas Trips: My Secret to Getting There.

Last Update: February 07, 2016

I've been invited out to the Wealthy Affiliate conference four times now and I pretty much have the 2017 conference invite already wrapped up as well. The other super affiliates have all blogged their experiences and by now, you have a pretty good idea of what went on while we were there.

Instead, I wanted to offer a bit of help so that you can join us next year. The conference will shatter every one of your expectations. It does for me every single year.

There's one piece of advice that I can offer that will help you get there. It's the main reason why I've been invited four times now and why every other super affiliate made the cut and spent their week in Vegas.

Here it is.

My secret tip to get you to Vegas.

(And just some extra anticipation...)

Don't Wait for Something to Happen.

At no point should you be sitting idle waiting for something to happen. The second you stop pushing yourself forward is the second you fall behind someone else.

Don't wait on Google to move your site up in the rankings.

Give them a reason to do so. Publish more content, build your social network, reach out to other bloggers, get links pointed back to your site, publish more content, and then publish some more content.

There's no secret.

It's work.

There are no shortcuts.

Every attendee this year can attest to that.

Super affiliates don't "luck" their way into a Vegas invitation.

They work hard all year round and push themselves to be better constantly. Growing complacent and slowing down will kill your business.

Yes, I am well aware that this is simple and obvious advice. But I know first hand that it works and I have a successful business to prove it.

The Year Ahead

I always like to look forward into the upcoming months with these posts. It allows me to focus my efforts, plan my next moves, and be held accountable for the things I write down. If I publish a goal here, I will need to hit it so I look good for next year's blog post.

Beating Last Years Goals

I had set some small goals with last year's blog post. My wife Amanda and I wanted to travel a bit more. We knocked this one out of the park and spent most of 2015 on the road and on more whale watching tours than I can count. I had wanted to organize my website a bit better. My growth in earnings and visitors confirms that I accomplished this, yet I still know there is work to do. And finally, I wanted to make it back to Vegas to the WA conference, which was easily achieved.

The Redesign of My Site

This is undoubtedly the biggest undertaking I have to face this year. The vision I have for my site begins with changing the theme. My current theme has worked for a few years now, but it's quickly becoming out of date and I'm starting to hit limitations on what I can do with it.

There are always risks when changing the layout of a site. I do have fears as to how Google will perceive it, but I know the only way I can grow is to start making changes.

If I let fear dictate how I run my business, I would have quit years ago.

I Need to Publish More Content

There's a reason why they say content is king. I've made content my primary focus since day one. No tricks, no gimmicks, no shortcuts to higher rankings. Put out quality content and you will succeed. That's the whole "secret" to Internet Marketing. I've said this for years and every successful marketer will back me up.

Right now, I put out 1 new article every weekday for 5 new articles per week. Initially, I want to move up to 10 new articles per week, with a final goal of 20 articles, 4 per day, by the end of the year.

The more content I publish, the bigger my reach. This is the goal we all need to strive for. If you're publishing 1-2 articles per month, you're going to have a real tough time gaining any traction.

Sit down, figure out a posting schedule, and get to work!

More Travel & Vegas Done Right

And, of course, Amanda and I plan to travel even more this year. We have the freedom, flexibility, and time to go anywhere we want. We're going to make the absolute most of it while we can.

Travel plans this year already include Hawaii, Italy, Cabo, & Nashville. But I have a hunch that a few more trips will be thrown into the mix as well.

My goal for Vegas this year is to hit that Rolls Royce & Skyloft package. I've come close the past two years, but still have some work to do. If these beginning months are any indication, I'll be blogging from my own personal Skyloft in a year's time.

Where do you see yourself a year from now?

Make your own goals and feel free to share them in the comments below. The only way you're going to get better is by pushing yourself forward.

No more waiting around.

I dont see myself succeeding the way you have in a year. I just want someone to let me know if blogging tips for newbies is a good niche. I hear all these stories about wow I just mad e another sale or wow I have 100 paid referrals. All I know is 500.00 on this premium dealyo and 210 articles on blogging tips In have yet to see one referral or sale. And I have been tools I write good content. I don't get it, am I just in the dark? Are all these success stories just made up garbage to keep people signing up? I beginning to think there are way too many what ifs for an average Joe to succeed at this. I think its like quitting smoking, you finally need to just stop. I think I need to stop because its just costing me time and money.My goal this year is to stop being a sucker spending time and money on something that's not working.

Hey I loved this article! I just started and am not doing the make money niche, but I would really love to go to the 2017 vegas event. Do you have any advice on how to promote WA without a money niche website, or should I finish the certification courses and then start a make money website? Thanks for you help and advice!
Reply
dorina62 Premium
Hi, Rachelannie!I wrote an article about WA on my site which is not in the money niche, I promote it like this! But it is not a good idea! For ex. Adwords did not approve my URL because the site has pills for sale(their policy). Some will approve your ads like this.I did this because I was a beginner...! You can have 25 free sites as a Premium member, so the best way is to make your own money niche site.

Hi Steve,
Thank you for the reminder to us that the road to success is so simple but most of us failed to realize it. Just follow the step-by-step lessons structure by Kyle and we will be on the road to the top. Most of the times we failed because we wanted more and we try to learn many things at once and it made us de-focus. Now to get back to the basic and bite it piece by piece, instead of swallowing everything in one go.

Hey man!

Absolutely love the new website redesign -- LOVE IT! Sheer brilliance!

A terrific little tag line goes an awfully long ways... this one really puts the desired message forth.
It does precisely what is needs to do; it sparks direct interest to generate inquiries___ and in turn___ sales! That's the ticket.

I'll tell ya what -- you've certainly got me lookin' closely at it, bud, and here I thought I'd seen some of the best of 'em over the years.
Heck, this new tag knocks it right the outta the park!

Nice work as usual, Steve!

Hi Steve. Obviously, hard work with a full time commitment is what it's going to take to see results in a years time. I'm anxious to see where I'll be in a year from now, even though I have just been signed up for a week now. It's a little overwhelming and nerve racking. My hardest obstacle, right now, is overcoming my inhibitions to "join the Discussion" to get/give feedback...but it's a learning curve. Keep those posts coming.

You have done an excellent job... I love reading valuable posts like this.

When you come up with a method to produce more valuable articles, please let us know. Currently, I'm trying to get a new business off the ground, which is causing my bootcamp site to only get 1-2 articles a week added. But I'm thinking of some content creation strategies to implement that will increase those numbers. Hopefully things will fall into place soon...

Anyways, great job!

At first I said to myself how does Steve get the necessary work done while he's traveling all over the place. Then I realized it's a matter of scale ... success feeding success ... a "staff" of writers who you manage.

I'll be honest ... I already know that I'm not publishing frequently enough on my first niche site. Even though I followed the training and chose my niche based on my passion, I'm struggling to find new and interesting stuff to write about.

I think I'm going to step away for a bit ... go over and do the Bootcamp training so I will have 2 sites to work, a dedicated Affiliate site and my niche site. Hopefully that will facilitate the creative juices.

Thanks for sharing Steve.

One year from now, I will be able to live off my earnings from online marketing. Quite a goal, but if I work every day, it should be achievable. Right?

Small side question: how many visitors do you have (daily, monthly) on "ivetriedthat.com"? I want to create a business case around my internet marketing and am wondering what's an achievable number of visitors..

Thank you Steve for the motivation. As you so clearly stated it's all about working at one's business - planning and publishing relevant content meant to be of great value to the readers.

Pushing one's self is the key!! As you stated Steve, it's not about simply sitting back and waiting around for things to begin happening for you. You have to take the initiative!

BTW, it's so awesome that your wife, Amanda is also so completely engaged in your business, Steve. You are so blessed that she has the same mindset which has led you to both accomplish so much in your business ventures!

I am seeing quite a bit of emphasis on reaching out to other bloggers and getting backlinks. What I haven't found is good training or advise on how to go about achieving it.

Obviously you can't say "Nice blog, I've linked to your site. Can you link to mine?" Is there any training out here on that?
Reply
IveTriedThat Premium
For me, it's always been about forming a connection with another blogger in a similar niche. A one-off email isn't going to net you any results, but you can do things like comment on their content frequently to start getting noticed, offer them an article to publish on their site, and send them link love from your own site.

Eddy was one of my first real online friends, even before I joined WA. He runs a competing blog, but I've never viewed him as competition. We've instead had a friendship that has been mutually beneficial that all started with a bit of outreach.

You can also search for your niche + "expert round" or "link roundup" in Google to find similar sites that often offer backlinks to others, but you have to provide something for them to use as well.

There are lots of options. Just get creative.

Very good advice. Thanks for the candid glimpse of what the Vegas trip was about.(shrouded in mystery!) Writing quality, engaging, and full of lovely keywords to boot content does not come easy for most. But there's no getting around it. Google,Wordpress, and especially Amazon, all require high voltage content. Research on whatever topic you are writing seems to be the best help for the subject. Brad

No. They have a long trip before they reach San Diego county.

Congratulations Steve, it is really encouraging what you are saying, I think that sometimes we can over complicate things and almost listen to Google to much! If we just write good content regularly we are on the way to being successful, I believe! It sounds really good what you are doing, may you keep moving forward!

You have inspired me steve. There was a day 3 years back when I accidentally stumbled upon your site and that's how I am here today at WA. And to-day when I get an inspiration from you I feel happy. My best wishes.

Wonderful Steve,

I am truly inspired and definitely need to step up my approach to writing content.

I am making this statement now as my goal - 2016 is going to be my first full year at WA since I started in June 2015 and I intend to follow your advice and make it to Las Vegas for the next trip and every trip after that as well.

Thank You Steve for sharing with us all the secret to getting there!

Tony

Keep the focus on your content Tony. That's what will drive people to WA. Your activity within WA is great and will help people who are already inside, but if you want to make it to Vegas, you need to introduce new people to WA. That's why the focus on your own content is so crucial.

You are so "write" Steve, pun intended. Content is key and I certainly do a lot of it, just not all for one area. But I enjoy it. Just wish there were more hours in a day.

Where do I see myself a year from now? Closer to LV than I was this year. But I'll get there eventually to hang with you guys and gals. I miss going to Vegas every year, at least with WA it would be more fun and less work than what I am used to.

But my new website endeavor is going to be stealing some of the content creation away from my WA site and this new website is the website I have wanted to build since joining WA.

But I am not giving up on my WA site. I really would like to meet all of you and share my craft beer experiences with Nathaneill, Kyle and finally hear Carson's voice. lol

Follow your heart Robert! Success in another niche can open up more doors to WA than you can possibly imagine. You'll get there in time.
