2018 Year In Review: $40K Thank You WA! Happy New Year!
Last Update: Jan 2, 2019
Happy New Year my WA friends!
I hope everyone had a great holiday season and ready to rock it here in 2019!
As I have been doing, I've been updating my progress here since I started and so I'd love to do a 2018 in review post here to summarize my year with final results, as this is my biggest year so far, totaling $40K in revenue:
I started here in Sep/16 and my first full calendar year, I didn't do too well revenue-wise but this is how it goes when you're building your online business.
Mid 2017 was when I really started writing a lot more on my blog, daily in fact, and continued to do so throughout 2018 with some slow down in the latter part of 2018.
If it wasn't for that ramp up in 2017, there's no way I would have made what I made in 2018.
If you're new to this online business, know that you don't get paid for the work you do today but you will get paid when you have established enough trust with your audience by providing and creating enough valuable content to them.
Content will always be king whether you write it or record it in a video form and the more you can create, the more visitors you will attract, the more money you make.
I still publish about 5 posts a week and have over 600 posts on my blog now and received almost 370K visitors in 2018.
Here's the breakdown of my income that I've been using to be consistent:
And if I used WA reporting to proof my numbers:
Jaaxy is very little as you can see. :)
This is from my Mediavine dashboard which I started only in May/18, these are the display ads on my site:
Averaging 4 digits a month just for ads! Totally truly passive after initial setup!
However, this ad network only allows sites who's sessions are over 25,000 and even then, it's not a guaranteed shoe-in.
Make sure you're branding your business nicely and have at least 1 or 2 social media accounts that might help.
2018 In Summary:
- Achieved 4 digit income in Mar/18
- Achieved Vegas Super Affiliate Conference in Aug/18
- Over 600 blog posts
- 369K visitors
- $40K highest income year 2018
- $7.9K highest income month in Nov/18
- One website - Started Sep/16
I think you can call my income for 2018 a "full time" income since some people do make that much a year.
But if you have seen my 2019 goals, this is far from what I want to achieve.
I want to build a 6 figure income this year and that means more than doubling my 2018 income.
I really hope I can do this and give you guys a better "2019 Year In Review" post!
Advice To New Members:
When you come to WA, you're not just going to "see" if you can make money online. You absolutely have the blueprint to follow in the training here to build an online business just like mine or BETTER.
There are many members here who do way better than me, make way more money than what I've reported above.
This is just to let you see what's possible if you really dive into the training and really learn this business.
The training alone will not get you to success though.
YOU will be a BIG factor in the success of your online business.
YOU need to be able to:
- Follow closely to the training & DO the tasks
- Ask questions if you're stuck
- Be able to also be resourceful & find your own answers
- Persistence in finding your answers
- Consistently work on your online business, at least 15 - 20 hours a week
- Create high quality valuable content
- Be willing to work without pay!
There's no sugar coating anyting with this online business, it's just pure "you reap what you sow" and you DON'T "reap" quickly or instantly.
The last point is very important and if you look at my history above (or read my posts on my profile), you will see I had to put in a lot of work in building my business in 2017 to reach the income I have in 2018.
Some people can achieve what I have in much shorter time but also many who haven't reached their first dollar in 2 years time as well.
Therefore, when and how much you'll make in your online business highly depend on you and how badly you want an online business to be churning out money like the way mine does.
I hope seeing my 2018 results will motivate and inspire you to work even harder in 2019 to reach your goals!
