Exciting times for my blogging business
Last Update: Dec 8, 2018
I know I've been terribly quiet lately on the Wealthy Affiliate platform and I'm sorry about that because I miss you guys. It's just been a madly busy period with all the stuff I do - online and offline.
Exciting times for my Blogging Business
There is sooo much going on right now... where do I start?
I'm gearing up for a very big year... I have huge goals for 2019 and I'm not waiting for January to get started on my goals. I expect my business to EXPLODE in the upcoming year.
This is what I've put in place so far...
I chose a Pro Theme (Divi)
On Black Friday, I finally invested in a paid Theme for my websites, well an entire Theme Gallery, actually...
I chose Elegant Themes which sports 87 stunning Themes including the ever popular Theme, Divi.
I've started fiddling around with Divi to spruce up my sites. It's quite the learning curve and, as with all design changes, it's a very time-consuming process, but I'm excited to upskill and even more excited to see the end result... haha... is there ever an end result? It's an ongoing process really, isn't it?
Made Passive Income from Affiliate Marketing
There's been an upsurge recently in my Wealthy Affiliate referrals. Yay!
2 of my new referrals went Premium 2 months ago, one of them is paying monthly and the other went Yearly on Black Friday. Double Yay!
In January, I'll earn my biggest Wealthy Affiliate Commission to-date, $ 153.50.
Secured a Sponsored Post Deal
As most of you know, most of my blogging income comes from clients paying me to publish their posts on my sites. (I earn $20 to $30 per published post).
Recently I was approached by a new client to write and publish some sponsored posts on my sites.
We've agreed to a rate of $80 per post for regular work, I'll be writing 2 to 3 posts a month for her. This one's not exactly in the bag yet because I haven't received my first post from my new client but I'm excited to get started!
Got my first $100 Order on Fiverr
And today, I received my first $100 Fiverr order, which also netts me $80 for one post. Yippeee! Could January be my first $1000 month?
My Big Hairy Goals for 2019
This is what I've got up my sleeve for the upcoming year.
Creating my own Digital Products
I've known for a while that I need to start creating my own digital products to take my business to the next level. So 2019 is my year to:
- Create an online course (or 3)
- Write 3 accompanying books and publish them on Amazon Kindle
I bought two courses on UDEMY for the ridiculously low price of R100 ($9.95) on Black Friday so I can upskill as quickly as possible.
I'm also Tweeting like crazy at the moment to win 3 Months of Teachable Pro. #12DaysofTeachable
Becoming an Online Course Creator
Yesterday, I started my Udemy course on How to Create an Online Course and I created my first video lecture. Woohoo! It's not perfect but it's a start and it feels good!
Becoming an Amazon Kindle Author
As I create my courses, I'll write the books to go along with them.
I'm feeling excited and inspired. I've got direction, a plan and all the training I'll ever need to get cracking and make my dreams a reality.
I'm ready. It's time.
What are YOUR Big Hairy Goals for 2019?
