4 Years at Wealthy Affiliate - It's Time to Share My Journey
After almost 5 years in internet marketing, 4 years at Wealthy Affiliate, I am not here to say I am some internet guru. I am not making 100k+ a year from internet marketing, nor am I making 1k/mo either. I probably make about $25-$50/mo consistently for the past 3 years.
So you are probably asking yourself, "So then why do I need to read this, why do I need to follow you?" The answer to that is, you don't....but if you do decide to read this, and if you do decide to continue to follow me or read some of my posts, every now and then in the future, I do promise this:
I will not hold anything back. All the mistakes I have made, I will share them with you. I will share my journey, as accurate as I can remember it, and will be fully transparent in my writing, and in answering any questions you may have as well.
I have shared my journey with many people I have met face to face, but I have never put it in writing.
In my 5 years learning internet marketing, 4 years with Wealthy Affiliate, I have learned tons. But some of the most valuable things I have learned in the business, especially blogging, is what NOT to do.
I hope as you continue to read and follow my story, that some of the lessons I have learned, will keep you from making some of the same mistakes, and therefore, help you to be even more successful, in a shorter period of time....
And I don't mean get rich quick, I just mean, help you to avoid some of the same pitfalls that I went through. Pitfalls that have extended my time toward reaching my goals.
If I can leave you one nugget on this first post, it is this. I have literally spent over 12k, in the past 5 years, on different internet systems out there, on different tools, plugins, website themes, sales funnel builders, autoresponders, etc, and if I could tell my old self, 4 years ago, it would be, ONLY use Wealthy Affiliate, and DON'T jump around to all the other stuff out there!
Don't get me wrong. It's not to say, that out of the 12k I have spent there weren't some good things out there, because there was and is, but, and this is key BUT, I would tell my old self, 4 years ago, to continue to learn and use Wealthy Affiliate until I started bringing in consistently, over 3k/mo for 6 months, in income.
I plan to post about once a week, and in my next post, I will tell you why I wish I could go back and warn myself. Until then...
Keep Fighting the Fight,
