$3.2K Month - July Monthly Update!

Last Update: August 02, 2018

Sorry for the late update!

I know many of you have been waiting for my July Monthly Update.

And here it is. Let's go straight to the point...

Achievements in July

In June, I managed to hit $2.5K in total commission (June report here). With hard work, I set a new personal record in July:

  • WA Commission: $2,688.50
  • Total Commission (plus other affiliate programs): $3,282.51
  • Number of posts published: 33
  • Total number of posts on my site: 185
  • New Premium Referrals: 57
  • Free Starter Referrals: 472
  • Conversion rate around 12.1%
  • Last day of July I hit 28 Free Starter Referrals in one day (highest so far)

July is finally the month that I hit my content goals after a few busy months. I not only hit my goal but I surpass that goal by a lot.

After a website overhaul in the beginning of July, the rest of the month is just focusing on writing and publishing content, almost every single day.

I had some events going on for a few days so in order for me to publish 33 posts, there are a couple of days that I published 2 posts.

It's all about consistency and DISCIPLINE!

Currently, at the point of this writing, I left 103 more sales to go for Vegas:

I'll definitely create a training or something when I've made it and document all the things I've learnt along the way to share with you guys.

But before that, I'll just link to my usual top recommended resources at the end of this post for those of you who haven't gone through them.

Making it to Vegas is when I can finally take a real break and relax.

Can you see how determined I am when I have that clear goal in mind?

Throughout the past 7 months, I didn't really take a real break and reward myself. The only recreation I have is go to gym and play badminton to keep in shape.

Everyday sleep at around 4am. Wake up 10-11am. (Cuz I'm a night person and I'm more productive at night. So you gotta figure out your plan and what suits you best)

So, are you still complaining why you're not achieving your goals, not having enough money yet you're taking that break after a day of tiring work, hanging out with friends on weekends to reward yourself, etc....?

There's a quote that I really love and want to share with you:

"Don't stop when you're tired; stop when you're done!" -Marilyn Monroe

Before you achieve your goal, you shouldn't be taking a break.

By the way, I'm not saying you cannot have any time to rest. Yes, we do need to rest after working for a while. That's also to keep us productive.

By taking a break, I mean things like:

  • Slacking for a day just because you feel tired
  • Chilling out with friends every week
  • Immediately go watch the latest popular movie when it's released just because you don't want to feel missed out

What we can achieve actually depends on the small decisions we make every single day.

In other words, this is also known as your habit. Do you have good habits that contribute to your success in the long run? If not, are you practicing them?

Setbacks in July

Major setback in July is that my traffic didn't grow as usual like the past few months.

It's somewhat stagnant and dropped a bit.

After discussing with others, it's probably due to the holiday season in the US.

Nevertheless, I still continue with my content creation and stick with my plan.

Eventually, at the end of the month, my traffic is coming back and and it's growing again. That's how I managed to get 28 referrals in the last day of July.

So, the lesson here is to stick with your plan no matter what obstacles you're facing.

In March, I remember there was a period where my post just couldn't get indexed and ranked in Google. That's during one of the major Google Algorithm update.

But I still pushed through and did what I planned to do.

As long as you know what you want and why you want it, create a master game plan and stick to it!

Am I the Youngest Making it to Vegas?

I haven't made it to Vegas yet. But at this pace, I'm confident that I'll achieve that goal in a few months time, probably by October or even earlier.

I'm guessing that I'll probably be the youngest person to make it to Vegas. Let me know who has made it to Vegas below 21 years old...

Anyway, I'm really pumped and excited to push through this final stretch. Wish me luck :)

Vegas I'm coming!

And that's all for July's monthly update.

I hope this has given you some inspirations moving forward.

Below is the relevant resources that I recommend...

1) For those of you who are promoting WA:

2) For those who are struggling with SEO and want to get better rankings:

3) Everyone:

That's all for now. I wish you a productive and fulfilling month ahead!


You don't stop when you're tired; you stop when you're done!

Hi Jerry. I want to say I really admire your work ethic. I mean 33 posts for a month, that's amazing.

Also, you're right about consistency and discipline part.

I've been working hard for few months and I see my ranking rise, almost daily. It's a wonderful, EXCITING and new experience for me.

I can't wait until I start earning.

So it's actually consistency, discipline AND patience...
Cheers Jerry!
JerryHuang Premium
That's right Nikola! All the best :)
AffTraining Premium
Congratulations once again, man! It's getting pretty fun as both of our stats are so similar, but I think you're getting ready to pass me up. Your new premium referrals have overtaken mine and those recurring sales will start to really add up over the next few months.

Can't wait to meet you in Vegas, brother! Keep on keepin' on! You're a content machine! :)
JerryHuang Premium
Haha thanks Mike! See you soon and congratulate on your July achievements as well :)
Jianquan Premium
Numbers are always a great motivator for us moving forward! No matter is number of traffic or the dollar that you earn! :)

I wish I have your determination to have one post everyday!
I'm currently targeting to have an article every 2 days!

Great Job Jerry! Aiming to follow your path to Vegas one year later!!

JerryHuang Premium
Thank you Jianquan! 1 post every 2 days is a great start as well. Once you are more familiar with the process, you'll be more efficient and get things done faster and faster. Everything is all about practice :)
Jianquan Premium
Totally agreee! Practice makes perfect.. Let's keep fighting!
CNGoodwin Premium
Congratulations on your achievements.

I found this to be very motivational. Makes me want to get going faster with my website....I am still new at it all and have a very long way to go and still need to learn a lot about how to get to making that kind of money. Not to mention all the referrals (which I don't think I can do as I am not doing the boot camp at this stage...or is this still possible ). LOL feels slightly over whelming at times not knowing where to look to get to the top.

Anyways thank you for sharing.

Thank you
JerryHuang Premium
Thank you Cathryn,

Don't worry! I totally understand that kind of overwhelming feeling.

But trust me, you'll get over it very soon. I didn't start out with Bootcamp either because it's not recommended for people who are just starting out.

It's better to get some experience with a niche site first before moving on to promoting WA.

Just follow closely with the training here and implement the tasks given.

That will make sure you're on the right track!

All the best :)
Sammy-B Premium
Congratulations Jerry, you are one big success story!
You are completely right: you have to work hard to get that far and you have to make the right decisions. I really like the quote, "Don't stop when you're tired; stop when you're done!" This is so true, you need to stay focused all the time if you want success to happen, and it's great when you can keep up your energy.
I'm sure you will get your 103 referrals in no time.
JerryHuang Premium
Thank you Beate! Yea, focus is everything! Stay tuned for my Vegas post :)
Defiant6 Premium
Thank you so much for sharing this and congratulations on your continued success. I just want to let you know your posts have been a big motivator for me as I want to be earning that much or more each month from WA. I'm writing down plans and ideas for posts on my 2nd website where I can promote WA, but I'm also working heavily on my first website as I really need to do more product reviews and more CTAs so that I'm not just earning solely from Google AdSense which is not a whole lot. I'm working on adding content very consistently on that site and my writing and length of posts are getting much better as well as how fast my posts are getting indexed in Google.
JerryHuang Premium
That's awesome! I'm glad you're taking all those actions and planning. Stick with your plan no matter what happens. Hard wokr pays off :)
ChrisCee1028 Premium
Hey Jerry, congrats to you for your BREAKTHROUGH in your achievement within WA so far.
I love the points you've mentioned in your post about self discipline & adopting successful habits!

-Slacking for a day just because you feel tired
-Chilling out with friends every week
-Immediately go watch the latest popular movie when it's released just because you don't want to feel missed out

I use to do that in my previous endeavours, I guess that might be the main reason that's holding my SETBACKS in achieving HUGE SUCCESS within my LIFE (in terms of career, financially wise).

Thanks again for my dose of motivation, for the day.

JerryHuang Premium
Thanks Chris!

I'm glad you can resonate with my points. The most important thing is that you now have a much better mindset and habits to achieve your goals!

All the best :)
lmwhite Premium
Congratulations! I have a blog going on success stories here at WA and will add yours to it. What you have achieved is remarkable at any age, but the fact that you're not yet 21 makes it all the more impressive! I commend you to sticking to your content goals even when you weren't getting traffic. I have no doubt that consistency is contributing to your success.
JerryHuang Premium
Thanks a lot Laura! By the way, I just turned 21 in July :)
Oscar19855 Premium
What a great example you are for us all! Love to read your posts. Can't wait to see when you make it to Vegas! I am pretty sure that it is sooner than you think. Now that you are where you are, I can see the snowball effect that is on your site. Congratulations. And don't overwork yourself, because you will run into health problems. I've experienced that and it is not cool.

Wishing you nothing but success,
JerryHuang Premium
Thanks for your kind reminder Oscar! I'm aware of that. I'm constantly eating healthy food and exercising :)
DBlanchard Premium
Jerry my man!

This is sooo Awesome! Your are killing it!

From 2.5K to 3.2K that is a 22% increase in one month! This is excellent being this is July and everyone is on vacation, well almost everyone obviously with your results! :)

I really appreciate all that you do here for everyone and that you share all of your wisdom with the rest of us!

You are well on your way to Vegas!!!

"Don't stop when you are tired, stop when you have your ticket to Vegas"

You are an inspiration to all of us!!!

JerBear you the man! I don't know why I called you jerbear it just popped in my head. Thats awesome work bro and its inspiring. I myself am having a little bit of a difficult time at the moment but know I will push through it. thats awesome 33 posts in a month. Its tough for me personally to write 2k+ a day on a topic that I have to research as well. If its something I know then it just flows otherswise it moves at turtle speed!

One question for you though. do you spend money on ads and stuff or is this all free traffic that your generating your referrals from? I'm very curious.

Well keep up the good work buddy your obviously doing everything right. Also keep the updates and training recommendations coming I and many others appreciate. I have learned quite a bit from some of your posts. Thanks man.

As for being 21 thats awesome at least your motivated and making things happen at a young age. I'm 27 and starting to get my shit together so you got me beat
JerryHuang Premium
Thank you Kevin!

It's also not easy for me to write 2k+ a day, sometimes even twice a day.

But I'm always exploring for ways to increase my productivity. I also spend hours to research for one post.

For your question, no I don't do any Ads as for now. Only focus on organic SEO traffic from Google.

Hey Jerry,

You and Grace have made a huge impression on my life and in my work.

Thank you for all your help too on the Thrive Architect.

Well... I know you are definitely going to Vegas!

I really like your work hours...lol! I can see the quotes have clearly helped you to stay focused. I'll have to write them out and have them in front of me every day.

I definitely look forward to the training of your successes.

JerryHuang Premium
Thank you Monica! It's my pleasure to be able to help you :)

You are rocking it. You are amazing for all you millennials and Z'S.
Of course the oldies too. Vegas is in the bag for you.
Let me tell you now a rest is not on the cards. You will be busy getting more ideas to grow bigger than ever. Rubbing shoulders with the best means more ideas more work. I doubt you will sleep a wink. Your just gonna be so excited :)
Wishing you all the best wow you are gonna be super successful. :)
~Debs :)
JerryHuang Premium
Haha that's true! I already have lots of ideas and plans in my mind that I want to execute once I hit Vegas.

I'm really excited. Everyday when I think of Vegas, I realize a smile is always on my face.

Hi Jerry,
You are a real inspiration for a lot of us here at WealthyAffiliate. Thanks so much for posting your Monthly Updates. I just read your July update and am now in the process of reading all your posts - especially your updates.

Your writing is very revealing of what you have done and creates an atmosphere of trust.

If you can do it - so can I.

JerryHuang Premium
Thanks a lot Roger! Yes, I believe you can do it :)
AffMktgRt Premium
Jerry, congratulations, simply amazing.

If you were to be working for someone, as compared to being an entrepreneur, you would surely be employee of the year, based on your achievements.

Thanks for sharing all of that with us, it proves not only that WA works, however, that we need to apply ourselves in order to achieve our goals and dreams,

I think that is fair to say that everyone would want to be on Jerry's team, mindsetwise.

JerryHuang Premium
Thanks Gabriel!

I guess that "employee of the year" won't happen in my entire life because I'm not going to work for anyone, LOL!
AffMktgRt Premium

We know that, but please promise that you will give your WA fellow members a grand tour of your first Vegas casino, once you build it.

LCEndahl Premium
