My First Sale - Sort of

Last Update: December 28, 2017

I checked into my Amazon Affiliates page and found someone clicked one of my links and bought two items earning me the tidy sum of $1.21.

Maybe, I'll hold off on ordering the RV.

They did not buy the linked item, but bought two other items.

Am I excited?

Well, maybe just a little. Woot, woot! Yippie! Hooray! Boo-yeah! Hot dog!

I'll try to hold it down. I know some of you are working.

The truth is, it is very satisfying. I know the actual sale is a drop in the bucket as far as money goes, but it represents much more than that to me. I have a long way to go, but this gives me a lot of motivation.

Some might say the sale was accidental, that I merely lucked out. I disagree. While the traffic on my site is a trickle, three months ago, the site did not exist. With tons of help from WA, I created the site and added content. I am following the instructions in the training. I know I have to work on my writing. I know I have to get better at the social media aspect. I will. I am ready.

Thank you WA, and thank you WAers!

This is huge. I know $1.21 doesn't look like much on paper (or in pixels), but just think of all those successful business owners who still have their first dollar displayed in a frame on the wall of their store. It means something much more than the amount.

It's a new beginning!

That is what happens with sales on Amazon. People will head over there and buy some pretty random stuff, and if they do so within 24 hours you are going to get credit for the sales. ;)

Congrats Joe!

Hi William,
I have been blogging for a little over three months. I have been writing professionally in some capacity for over 40 years. Writing a blog is not like writing news articles or technical documents. Think of it like telling a friend about that which you are passionate.

All the best.
- Joe
