Made my first sale. I'm open for business!
Wow it's been an amazing journey thus far. I started from scratch with the training really not knowing anything about this at all. Not only that, but I've never been much of a tech savvy person other than the fact I learned to type in highschool because I took a class.
I went from knowing absolutely noting to:
Starting a website and building it to look pretty.
Learning how to use keyword search engines.
Learning how to insert images
First learning to hyperlink
Finally realizing that there is a "text" button in word press to insert html code (omg I was blind).
Making quite a few lengthy posts as I was instructed.
Getting indexed in google.
Using Social Media Platforms and Networking with them
Making my first couple bucks with Google Adsense.
Making My first two sales with Amazon Affiliate.
Wow guys. I've only been here a month. Here that might not be a "profit" but I have BJJ merchandise (the niche I blog about) on it's way in the mail that's $100 value and I've emailed with other manufacturere who may be willing to work with me in the future!
I didn't think I could do it and you guys helped me believe and I see it slowly happening. As far as I was concerned the 50 bucks a month to join wealthy affiliate wasn't gonna kill me. Now before I even got through my first month my tuition is technically already paid off. I was going to buy a new rashguard and fight shorts for jiu jitsu anyway and I got it for free.
Lol I'm kind of overwhelmed. When you've lived a life not thinking great things are possible for yourself things seem too good to be true, except it's not. It takes the work except you're not simply paid week to week or month to month. It's conversions. Every post I make on my website means more people are going to click on it. My jaw is dropping because I know I'm building something great. Something Honest, and something that will make my dreams come true.
Those first few pennies I was so eager to get when I first joined Wealthy Affiliate are already happening! It's almost too soon. This is not a "get rich quick" scheme but it most certainly a "get rich" way of life.
I'm combining my passion for writing within my passion for jiu jitsu and I feel great. The life I desire where I just train jiu jitsu all day and write an article here or there maybe once a week is unfolding. Jiu Jitsu is going to be my full time job and I have Wealthy Affiliate to thank for making that dream possible! Thanks so much guys. Means the world. I don't even know how to pay you back.
Thanks Kyle and Carson for teachhing me with the videos
Special Thanks to Kyle! I've messaged this dude countless times with questions and he never once got impatient or short with me. You have my deepest gratitude. May the cosmos bless you with all its gifts my friend.
Most of All, Thank you guys. The community here at Wealthy Affiliate. You guys were quick to respond to my questions when I was in the middle of writing an article on several occassions. You guys are awesome. It's not about a ranking for me. Whatever your motives are for helping others doesn't matter to me. Thanks for helping out the new guy. It's definitely starting to pay off for me and I really hope that good karma follows you guys as well!
As the guys in jiu jitsu say. I'll say to all of you. OSS!
