One month here and I have made my fist sale
Last Update: Oct 13, 2019
I can't believe it is one month already. I want to share with you my progress. I thought I would do more by now, but I am still satisfied with the things I achieved.
I didn't finish all four trainings, but I am close.
I love my website now. I had to change the theme; I worked so hard with my first one, but it just didn't look the way I wanted it to look. I still have to install the analytics and maybe even ads. I don't know. I can not decide if I want them or not. My posts have a lot of pictures because I write about crochet patterns, and the instructions are easier to understand if I add photos and videos. I think that if I add the ads, that maybe it will be distracting.
I want to create a YouTube channel, but I still didn't to it. I will try to do it as fast as I can. It is all new to me, and I want to make video tutorials and interviews, but I still don't know how to do it. I have so much to learn that it is overwhelming sometimes.
I have created a Facebook page for my site; I have 50 likes already, and I have if for three days now. I am really excited about that. I also share my post to Facebook groups for crocheting, so that other crocheters get to know me. I have even asked them for feedback on my website, and they gave me some constructive criticism, which I already applied, but most of them said it was great.
I have also converted my personal Pinterest account to a business one; I have 1800 followers there and more than 10 000 pins from my niche. My post was already pined 11 times in three days, and I am really excited about that.
It finally happened. I have made my first two sales. Yeeey, I have earned $0,50. Hehe, I know it is not a lot, but I am getting there. I promote crochet patterns from Etsy, and they cost around $5.00, so I don't get that much commission. But I have been approved by three more companies where I will earn more money.
The main thing I have to figure out now is how to organize my time. I have so much going on. I am making a blog, I crochet (that is where my money comes right now), and of course, I am a mum of a baby boy. My boyfriend complains that he doesn't get enough attention from me now, but he supports me. I will have to make a schedule. Do you have any suggestions on how to organize my time that I can do everything and even get some sleep?
Thank you for reading.
Have a beautiful day.
