Re-organize Re-structure . and Re-launch

Last Update: August 02, 2019

I came into WA about 4 months ago a complete newbie to all things web design and certainly all things affiliate marketing. I immediately jumped on the OEC training, wide-eyed, full of excitement, and began building my first website.

Fast forward several weeks and here comes the giant screeching halt!

I stopped what I was doing (not training though, mind you - that was full steam ahead!). Turns out, the more I learned, the more I felt I was headed in the wrong direction.

I didn't have a clue about what to look for in a theme, so there was my first big wha-oh! I wasn't properly researching things like current trends or keywords. The list goes on ...

At some point I decided to go back to the drawing board; take what I learned (and a few deep breaths) and start things fresh from a new perspective.

I took a hard look at what I wanted to accomplish with my site and a serious look at how I was going to get there. Then I put plan B into place.

I'm wishing now I hadn't jumped the gun quite so much but no use crying over spilled milk. I consider it all a learning experience :D

Yesterday I dipped my toe back into the water and purchased a new domain. Instead of making a splash all silly salmon style, I'm going to steadily walk back in to the pool of web design with a destination in mind.

I figured the best way to keep myself accountable and on track is to document my progress and every step along my journey right here. With a lot of hard work (and a little luck) I have full confidence one day I'll be sharing my success story!

Yes, would be good if you have figured out your niche and strategy for way ahead. Maybe a good idea is to discuss it with someone who has been doing it much longer to get some inputs. How about your sponsor? Or someone you know?

Unfortunately I haven't had any contact from my sponsor but I have met a lot of really incredible people here in the community who have helped a ton. Feeling much better about things this time around :)

Sadly, if the niche was a good fit for you just changing the way you approach new content would have put you closer to where you want to go than starting over. You are now four months away from the progress you had made and will find that if you don't stick through past the next crisis of mind you may never find success. Too many people don't see what they thought they would around 4-6 months and start over and then 4 months later do it again.

I can see where you're coming from and I agree somewhat. It wasn't simply how I approached content however, it was the entire look and structuring of the site.

I was finding that the changes I wished to implement would have been super difficult, if not impossible. So it was either start from scratch knowing exactly where I want to go, or change the direction of where I was going, if that makes sense.

At any rate, I'm still moving forward and have no intention of giving up. I appreciate you thoughts though and will keep this in mind. Thanks for the support!
