Hi Guys!

I had another amazing month and things are really starting to snowball here.

April 2018 has yet again broke some records:

1. All time high referrals - I jumped from 236 referrals in March to 358 referrals in April!!

2. Highest Referrals Per Day - 20 referrals in a day and 3 weeks of double digit daily referrals and 1 week of single digit referrals.

3. Broke 1,000 visitors per day - Not only it broke 1,000 visitors a day, it went all the way up to 1,124 visitors on the last day of April.

4. Two Jaaxy Sales - I've only had 1 Jaaxy all this time, and this month, I got two more!

5. More than DOUBLED my March sales - 36 new premiums!

6. Most Money I've made - Not a huge increase from last month but I love showing the one year prior:


7. Most Adsense earned in a month - $157 - which means I can now get monthly payments from them (if I end up staying with them)! For May, I get to apply to Mediavine where your sessions need to be a minimum of 25,000 in your last 30 days, so not sure if I'll stay with Adsense. Heard you can make a lot more with Mediavine.


My site continues to grow, here's the month traffic:



Here's my 20 months graph:



There is nothing more gratifying than to see these results when I've been working so hard to build my site.

This month as I was continuing my progress and writing my posts, I get to "watch" my business keep breaking records.

It's so fun to see and I say watch because I'm not doing anything much different as I continue to publish daily on my blog.

I'm up to 420 posts published on my blog now and have about 6 ready for May.

My husband is starting to think "should I do that too?" I said ummm, YES! We'll see how that goes, I'm putting seeds in his head so he may start thinking a topic he'll like to talk about. LOL

Just like I had been putting seeds into my business and now those seeds are blooming and I can't wait to see how these seeds will grow!

BELIEVE in the training, BELIEVE in YOU, BELIEVE you can do this too (AND THEN DO IT!)!

There are no secrets to this business like many have said but people don't want to believe it. The best thing you can do for yourself is follow the training very closely and do the tasks.

Once you're done with the courses then it's a path of just writing, writing, writing in the way you were taught, and you will see results soon enough.

You will then experience the fruits of your labor like I am enjoying these days.

It's a GREAT feeling!

Grace

PS: As of this writing:



UPDATE (READ BEFORE YOU PM ME):

Please do not PM me asking me how I did it when I've already wrote how I've been doing it in this post: "I'm up to 420 posts published on my blog..."

AGAIN: THERE ARE NO SECRETS, I write A LOT. Write about product reviews. Write about product reviews. Hint: Write about lots of product reviews.

If you have no keywords on your site, you will not get any traffic.

Google will continue to give you better and better rankings as well with time, so if you keep adding more and more content (which has the low hanging fruit keywords), you will one day get the graph I have above.

You may go through MONTHS of low rankings and crappy traffic but your site should be slowly and gradually improving each month. If it's not, then analyze what you're doing wrong, or not doing enough of and figure it out.

Follow the BOOTCAMP TRAINING (at least just Levels 1 - 5)! Some of you who PM don't even sound like you have gone through the training and these are not new members.

I'm not trying to be mean or not help, but if you don't understand why you're not getting any traffic, then it means you haven't understood the training.

This goes for niche sites too, the training (OEC) is what's going to help you make money which goes back to content creation and low hanging fruit keywords <---- In The Training.

If you have a niche site, don't expect big results when promoting WA on there. Your niche can make you money, you don't need WA affiliate program too. You will not get my results if you promote WA on a niche site.

I also do NOT share my webiste for many reasons but may release it in the future. If you're in my niche, you should be able to find my site very easily when doing research for your product reviews, as many has.

Hi Grace,

Love your post. Very encouraging and very inspiring.

Are you going all those other things mentioned in the training (getting website comments, social media stuff) as well as researching/writing a lot of product review posts?

From a planning/scheduling points of view, would you say you spend over 90% of your "affiliate working" time researching/writing posts for your website and the other time doing other affiliate stuff?

Peace,
David

Hi David, thank you for your kind words and support!

Yes I did get website comments when I first started, I know it does help. But can be time consuming when you don't have the money to just buy them. I basically did them until I was receiving organic comments.

You will spend your first few months figuring out how your site will look, structured, organized, it's ever changing those first few months. Still doing writing but obviously not as much, you can see my message to Stunning Bell below how often I wrote.

Then it comes to a point in your business where you'll find all you'll need to do is research and writing.

However, you will find that a year into it, if results aren't happening the way you want, you need to review what you've been doing and revise for the better which I did last summer and added a 6K word guide to my site which acted as my landing page for WA as well as a lead magnet.

So I did that for several nights while day time I was continuing my writing schedule.

I also built an email series after I finished my guide which took a few more nights of work.

So those were the last major changes to my site last Aug/Sep'17. Then a couple months later I tweaked my guide which is something I'll always do to either add or adjust things I want to include and people to see.

Most days now is research and writing. What's worked better is having research days, I dedicate once a week to figure out what my next few posts will be, what products, keywords, and such. Then the rest of the week is writing on those, I found that much more productive.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
Grace

I forgot to mention about social media, yes I have everything set up and all my blog posts go out to social media automatically. You can have this set up too with tons of different free apps like IFTTT, Buffering, hootesuite, etc.

Social media I find is only good for the first 6 months when you don't have much traffic. What you really want is organic traffic, so if you don't want to do social media, that's fine as long as you make that up with lots more content on your site.

I've pretty much done everything in the lessons except continued with PPC, I also don't do videos as much as before which I should be getting back into but I haven't so far.

Hi Grace,

Thank you very much for your detailed reply. I am sure that many people will find your reply here useful and productive.

Having a 6k word post as your landing page and lead magnet is a big takeaway as well as having an email series.

Writing a lot of product reviews is the big takeaway from your WA blog with of course properly researched keywords to get traffic from the search engines.

Thanks for sharing.

Peace,
David

You're welcome, the only scenario where you won't look for good keywords are brand new products. Being first to review is very beneficial for your traffic and site. :)

Hi Grace,

That is awesome.

Do you watch many of Jay's training live training classes, now under "Live Events" in the new WA UI? I have watched a few of them and have learned a lot, and started to do what he suggests where it makes sense for me.

Thanks for sharing.

Peace,
David

Thanks for the tip. :)

Yes I used to watch a LOT of Jay's videos, not as much lately but I definitely will if there's a topic that interests me. Jay's webinars are fun in general and I love attending when I can just for the fun of it too. :)

He has them at 2 am on Saturday morning when I am doing other things, so I catch up on them when the recordings become available and if the topic is one that interests me.

He has a few about doing product reviews which he done a while back, going through them to pick up on useful tips. I have a few product reviews on my primary niche website which need updating to take what Jay says into account. Then to get the process down to a "t" so that I can do quality product reviews on a regular basis.

That is one of the reasons why your post caught my attention. :)

I'm able to catch them live if I want to so it's fun that way. :)

That's good about the reviews, yeah, it's a great way to gain traffic and people are in buying mode by then too.

Little mama. Your post is really very informative, even though I did not understand it well the first time I read it. Lol.

Did you just say you already have 420 posts on your website????

This is, in fact, the bottom line. If anyone is reading my comment and wondering why you are not having the performance she is having now, then perhaps you didn't understand her message the first time too. LOL.

So if you are getting worried with only 50 posts on your website, you better get to work already and be patient. Because getting worried will not increase the number of posts on your website.

By the way, don't get me wrong please. I have only 30 posts as of today. Lol. But the message above was the best thing I read today. It shows what I have not yet accomplished, and what I must do to get to where she is.

Thanks, Little mama. I'm just from making some modifications on my website because of what I've learned from this post.

Hi Stunning Bell,

I'm so honored to be able to have such an impact on your online business, thank you for letting me know.

YOU GOT IT!

No matter how grim your analytics look, keep writing, keep finding those low hanging fruit keywords, and just know that the future will be very bright.

I've had many of those days but like you right now, "getting it" back in Sep/17, made me kick it up publishing everyday (sometimes twice a day) and continued to do so today, I haven't stopped or slowed down.

Well, you can say I slowed down a bit because I try not to double post on any day so I can schedule my posts out more.

Consistency is also key, and I gradually increased my frequency from 8 posts a month to 12 a month, to 16 a month, to 20 a month, to everyday last Sep/17.

My traffic really kicked in Nov/17, it was the first big month for me and this has continued to improve monthly and my work production has stayed the same through all my traffic and income increasing.

I find that amazing!

That's the power of SEO happening.

I wish you all the best and please let me know if I can help you with anything else, you can PM me anytime.

Wish you much success!!
Grace

How can I say thank you? I'm humbled indeed. This was the most inspirational post I've read in a long time because it gave me the light bulb moment.

I'm still currently trying to rearrange my website. Thank you very much once again.

Thank me by doing the work and letting me read your milestone posts!!

You’re going to have a very bright future, I’ll be watching out for you. :)

DEAL!!!!!

Excellent! :)

I have more nuggets if you want to read my replies to DynamicDavid. ;)

Great. Let me check it out.

Hello, Littlemama,
I just read your post and that is absolutely fantastic too hear. And I wanted to say, "CONGRATULATIONS." And thank you for sharing your story with all of us. For myself, hearing stories like yours is what continues to feed that hope and drive that's within, causing it to grow more and more each and every day. Thank you so much!! It's nice to meet you.
I hope that you and your family are having a
very wonderful evening.

Joseph

P.S. I bet that your husband will be doing this before long?

Hi Joseph,

Thanks very much for all your kind words. Success posts were crucial for me in the first 12 months of my journey because I had such little results. I kept reading success posts and some lots more than one time. I am so happy to be able to do that for others too. :)

Not sure about my husband, we shall see. He's doing great at what he does, but he also likes being at home vs the office, so I hope he'll join me one day.

Best to you and wish you much success here!
Grace

I love this quote. I'm going to write it down:

"BELIEVE in the training, BELIEVE in YOU, BELIEVE you can do this too (AND THEN DO IT!)!

There are no secrets to this business like many have said but people don't want to believe it. The best thing you can do for yourself is follow the training very closely and do the tasks."

Thank you! Glad you like it. :)

Wow I am still stuck on the same. You are doing amazing.

Grace you are a fabulous inspiration and the power you have to keep writing is exceptional.

Now I would be crazy to say I am not Jealous because yes girl I am. Lol . I am a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve. :)

I wish you continued success Grace you are a fabulous inspiration to us all.

Keep going and prove to us all that this can be done.

Continued succes hunni.

~Debs :)

Hi Debs,

Thank you so much for your kind words and support.

You have no need to be jealous because you have the same tools and training I used, so you can do this!!

I know you can get there if you continue writing reviews and keep consistently publishing on your site.

You have much success ahead of you and I know you can achieve it just like I am in the process of doing. :)

Much hugs!
Grace

Grace,

As long as I can implement the training as good as you have and yes I need to stick to the training more.

I have got tons of backtracking to do.

You are awesome Grace. May you have massive success in the future too. :)

Well done Grace. This is a great inspiration and thank you for sharing the details. It's great to see how your traffic to your site has grown over time and that is a great inspiration for people like me who are still only 7 months in but seeing some things starting to move. Keep it up and you'll easily get to Vega.

This is a real pleasure to read, Grace, thank you so much for sharing. I will let my husband read it too, never knows it could be soothing and inspiring (not a fan of this business up to now).

Believe you can do it too, and then do it.

Have a nice evening rocking lady.

Anne

Wow Super Woman!! You are amazing and such an awesome inspiration for me. I have a longggg ways to go but I can do this. I know you're going to Vegas for sure!

That's exciting... I look forward to seeing your husband join us here.

I'm very proud of you for your accomplishments.

Best,
Monica

Hi Monica, thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad I can inspire you and you will be able to do this too!

We shall see with my husband and what he does, but he's been supporting us all these years since 2009 when we had our first child. Now I can finally contribute to our family in a big way, and I'm grateful for the way he supported me through all the different things I've tried. I owe this to him too for allowing me such freedom!

I look forward to your progress!
Grace

littlemama mia! That's an awesome result - Way. To. freakin' Go!
If that doesn't stimulate someone to just do it then they're probably dead already.
Only 225 to go? Pah! That's like a week's 'work' right now.

So, so jealous, yet so, so excited. If you can do it then so can I!

Thank you very much Dom! Lol, that's funny you say that, but glad I can stimulate the community here with my milestones!

Haha.. 225 is not a week's work but a few more months, I will continue my progress until I can reach Vegas!

Yeah, you don't need to be jealous, just picture this as your future results, I do that with other member's successes and now my numbers are following suit!

Just follow the training and do lots of product reviews. :)
Grace

Well, well, well. Your site is really kicking some butt now. Good to see. It's suddenly taken off like predicted. Keep going with the content and you'll likely see April's stats double by the end of June, maybe even triple. Get in Google's good books and things snowball.

Must be a good feeling seeing it finally all starting to pay off. Would certainly be motivating.

The training does work and your regular updates on here are proof of that.

You deserve your success!!

Hi Darren, Thank you so much! My conversion rate seems to have improved too with my success posts here I think. :)

April has really blown it out of the park, every month, I wonder if I'll beat my last. I hope this continues!

Let me know how you did, I hope you saw some improvements from your site too for April.

You can do this!
Grace
