Mar'18 Results: Broke 4 Digits!

Last Update: April 02, 2018

Money, Money, Money!

March 2018 has proven to be another "Best Month" and actually broke 4 digits which I'm estactic about!

Here are my results for March 2018:


Who wouldn't just quit at 7 months and making only $10?

I wouldn't and those who know and believe that the training works here wouldn't quit either because look what happens when you put in immense amount of work in the next 12 months for your business?!

I know 19 months to make 4 digits is nothing to brag about either but, guess what, I bet if i started a different niche I would be able to make 4 digits much faster.

Also, if you're new here and learn from this post to not play around the first 6 months and just start writing tons of content per the training from the get-go then you will reach 4 digits much quicker than I did. There are plenty of members here who reached 4 digits within their first year. I hope my next site can do that but no time for a 2nd site just yet.


My Blog Stats For March '18

Visitors: 18,436 - 83% Organic (Unique V: 18,139)

Sessions: 21,677

Pageviews: 29,947

During the month, I blogged that I hit a new daily high for traffic but it actually went higher than that, my new daily high is at 876 visitors/day!

The cover image up top is the Google Analytics for the month of March (by day) and this is the 19 month trend (by week):



Number of Posts Published: 389

I will definitely hit the 400 posts goal really soon, I actually only have 2 more posts to write to hit 400 because I already have 9 scheduled to publish in April.

Email list: 3,200 subscribers

I get about 30 - 50 email subs a day now and the only down side to a larger email list? Higher cost, but it makes sense since my income is climbing so I welcome the higher cost! :)

Referrals for March: 236

A new high for me, Feb had 190 referrals which beat out Jan even with three days less than Jan. It makes sense that March is higher than Feb because of extra 3 days but let's look at the daily average for each month: Feb 6.8 referrals per day while Mar 7.6 referrals per day, so I'm glad March is truly a new best month for referrals.


4 Digit Online Income Goal Reached!

When I first signed up, I thought I would make $2K in 6 months, and man, what a rude awakening at 3 months in, and at 6 months in. LOL

At 4 months I knew I had to write a lot more, then have increased my production month by month until I was publishing daily.

The amount of content and over 630,000 words later, it has produced the kind of results I was looking for.

But now it's not the time to slow down since, I need to keep this up and keep going until I meet my Vegas goal.

MMO niche is the worse niche ever!! I wish I didn't start with this niche if I knew how much harder and longer it was going to be.

But, no one tells you this unless you go through it yourself.

The best thing is that I have seen the process, how it works, how it's possible for me to make a four digit income and how I can apply this to future online businesses I will be building.


Next Stop: Vegas

I may be the slowest one there but now I know I will get there and can get there as the goal seems closer and closer.

There are definitely more than one way to get to the Vegas, but I seem to be taking the slowest route there with SEO.

9 more months to go! Com'on SEO, bring me home!


Hope you guys had a great March!

Grace

Hi, I'm new here. I tried to pm you but it won't let me do it without creating a blog for it. I see you've been here much longer than me and have a ton of experience with WA. without sounding rude what is the most you have made per month promoting WA?

Great steadyclimb..the old saying goes, "slow and steady wins the race"..that seems to be the path you're taking which is cool.

I've only been with WA for about a month now and I'm sure this question I'm about ask will be covered down the line with training BUT
Why did the larger e mail list cost you more $$?

Congrads again bbn on the higher monthly totals..good work..

Hi Thank you, this was two months ago, and you can see my April and May results on my blog posts here too.

Email auto-responders charge people by the number of people you have on your list.

The bigger your list, the more money you make, and they know this so they charge you more! :)

Great progress! Great encouragement for me! What do you mean when you said MMO is the worst niche? I'm just starting out so I'd like to found out more.

How do you find the time to write a post everyday? I've been working on my first WA review for the past 2 weeks. It's taking me forever.

If you could give me some insights, that would be great!

Thank you!

Hi Rex,

You just answered your own question.

MMO niche is the worse niche because it's so darn competitive that you do have to write a post everyday to get any traction.

You'll learn to write faster as you write more, it's always slow in the beginning. I write Monday - Friday, one - two posts a day and schedule them out so it publishes everyday.

My site didn't really take off til after 12 months when I started publishing everyday.

You don't have to publish everyday, you can do five times a day or 3 times a day.

Some other niches only need 3 times a day.

It took me 19 months to break 4 digits when other niches took 7 months.

The more competitive a niche is the more content you'll need because that content will contain it needs to drive traffic to your site.

If you don't have a lot of content, your MMO site will take a LONG time to get any results. I know members here who have been doing MMO niche for 2 - even 3 years and still haven't hit 4 digits.

So if you're new to this niche, then start with lessons and learn about keywords, how to write, what to write, etc. Then write as much as you can for your site to take off.

Any site won't get traction til about 3 - 6 months because Google needs time to trust your site, so keep this in mind.

I also didn't write a lot in the first 4 months, and was increasing from there. In my April results post, you'll see more tips about how I gradually increased my frequency. About writing, I've never been a writer, never liked it, but you have to remember this is not journalism or professional writing, this is conversational and you should keep things that way, it's easier to write.

I also have a training on my profile, under my trainings, about how to easily write a 1,000 word post: Hope this helps you,
Grace

That is def worth bragging about, youre just humble Grace. If I wwas making 4 figures a month Id be boasting about it everywher.e

Im going to try writing 5x a day and publish 300 posts in 2 months. Is that too much do u think? Is there such a thing as too much content? Hypothetically if you had published all your 400 posts in 1 month (same quality content) instead of 19 months, does that necessarily mean you would be making 4 figures that first month? Or is there a time requirement?

Thanks very much! Lol Yeah, well, I just see others making 4 digits faster than me. :)

There are members here who do that and I've seen this being done, I believe it does bring in faster results but I can't tell you anything else since I didn't do that or experience that.

I could only imagine you will make it to 4 digits quicker than me if you can write that many posts but not sure just how much quicker. It still depends on what those posts are about, what kind of people you're bringing here, etc.

Dear Grace! Congratulations with your success! Ohhh such a stories make me feel much better, as i am in WA 3 month, but last month I didn't work the maximum speed and quality I wish too (had some personal issues and problems)
Thank you for motivation!
wish you succeed even more and now just only up on a heal!

Thank you so much Lana! 3 months is nothing, you have ways to go so no worries, just keep writing per the training. :)

Im doing that. But it goes slow for two reasons
1) i do not have power for my time ( you know that with two kids it could be hard to plan)
2) hard to find what to write about and with that i also stuck in training (as i do not go futher, without writing an article according the plan) :D
Thank you! I am patient and work as much I can.

#2 - you just need to do more keyword research on Jaaxy.

Yeah the time thing can be hard if you have two small kids. Mine are in school now so I have time to write during the days while they're in school.

Leanita Premium
Ufff...mine are 2.10 and 1.2years old.
And soon i will need to go back to work..and time will be even less. Thats why i try to make my best to do as much is possible till that time..

But you did grest job! And you just motivated me more ;) thank you!

Brilliant Grace -- However, certainly not slow at all!! Fast by many people at WA, to making that income!!! So many people have been here a lot longer and not reached that level of income ..... Certainly, it's a lot slower if you're posting less content though. I've no doubt you will get to vegas for 2019! :)

Thanks very much Natalie! Thanks for your support! There are always people behind us and people doing better than us, I guess I was just looking at people who's made it in less time. :) I'm just glad I made it!

I hope we'll be able to make it to Vegas '19!

You are being very smart by taking the long SEO route Grace...

I've been in the short-paid ads route, and trust me...it's not good for our business in the long term.

You will make this happen and by documenting your inner/outter process you are actually helping many of us.

I'm very happy for your success Grace! keep writing!

Luca

PS. Have your tried Dictation software? it can help you produce even more content :)

Hi Luca,

Thank you so much for your share about SEO vs paid ads... I just figured if you start paying, you'll be paying forever.

With SEO, it only gets better with time and so yes, I'm also glad I took this route though long and tedious. Lol

I did try dictation software, and my words seem to come out slower and the process seems to take me longer. I haven't found my groove yet with dictation but I'm hoping I can get more used to it so I don't have to type as much but typing is becoming such a natural thing to me that it doesn't bother me to write myself.

Thanks for all your well wishes too! Appreciate your support and I wish you continued success in your biz!

Take care,
Grace

Grace, you have proven that hard work does indeed pay off. Actually, I think 19 months to make $1394 is pretty awesome! And here's the rub....it will only go UP from now on.

Soon you will be making $3000 and $4000. I don't know how you have so many posts???!!! Are you outsourcing? LOL! I only have 248 posts but I've been a bit slack recently.

Big congrats!

Hi Craig! Thank you!! I finally caught up to you, 4 digits! Yippee!

Outsourcing?????? I wish! The only writers I've used (guest posts) never worked out that great. It's all me but one guest post I allowed on there.

I just haven't taken any breaks from writing. :)

Wow! This is pretty inspiring to read so I really appreciate that you've shared this with us.

It can definitely feel discouraging in the beginning (I have my moments right now), and I'm glad you stuck with it. Your results speak for themselves! Congratulations and I wish you success in the coming months :)

Hi Brittaney, Thanks for your well wishes! Keep up with what you're doing, don't doubt it, the training works if you can follow it closely. Key is to keep writing with low hanging fruit keywords, and you'll be able to make the same amount of money if not way more! :)

So awesome Grace. I have watched your progress and you have truly stayed consistent and now reaping the rewards.

I agree with you on the MMO niche. It is tough and one I want to conquer also. Well done to you!

Here’s to much more. See you in Vegas one day!

Thank you Sharon and appreciate your support to follow my progress! This niche is a long road, so one must prepare but the more you write, the faster you can get to Vegas.

See you there soon!

Congrats to you, you deserve all the success you get after all that work. Don't complain too much about your chosen first niche and how long it took you, be grateful! As so many other niches are completely saturated and so competitive and full of high authority review based sites...you will come across them when you start to build your second!

Well... I can tell you, you definitely won't be the slowest one to Vegas. And... I'm with you on the MMO niche. I've wished at times I could go back but I'm all in now lol. Truth is though... if you've got the resolve to keep going it doesn't matter how long it takes. You're going to be looking back in 6 months, a year, two years and so on anyway... you may as well create something worth looking back on :-)

Great post and thank you for sharing... you're an inspiration.

Thank you very much for your kind words! I'm glad you agree with me on the niche! Lol. We're suckers for pain and hard work?! Yeah, it's easy to give up but it's most rewarding to see your efforts pay off.

I am so glad you are having success! I am also really glad to hear you talk about how frustrating the first year is because that tells me to hang in there. Months and months of work for you and not much to show for it, that has to be defeating. Thanks for telling it like it is, I appreciate your honesty.
Reply
littlemama Premium
Yeah, those first 12 months sucks but this is because of a few factors. What I know now, and knowing what I need to do from the start will pull results much faster next time.

But don't just think it's just time you need, you must continue the level of work or increase it that's the hardest part when money is not coming in.

But hey, nothing comes easy, and if it did, we'd all be rich. :)

Best to you!

Hey, Littlemama! Congratulations and thanks for being real and showing that hard work DOES produce results. I don't expect to get rich quick and am committed to earning income online since I want to work from home because I'm in my 60's. I'll be looking for your reports of how awesome Las Vegas is when you get there! I'll do the "happy dance" with you!

Hi Pamela,

Appreciate your kind words and well wishes! Yes the training works, but must be applied consistently and frequently. ;)

You can do this, we all can, in any niche.

I wish you all the best with your online business!

Your results are inspiring. We all think we will make lots of money within 6 months and some can but the MMO niche is hard. I actually have two other sites but have had to leave them parked until I get this MMO niche sorted. I too am determined to make it to Vegas. If not this year then next.
That’s not me being defeatist, Just maybe a realistic view.
Success takes time and effort.
Wishing you every success and would love to see you Make Vegas. When I saw some pictures I realised they were all men, maybe one woman but that could have been someone’s wife !
With Grace and Gratitude

That's great Karen, that's the first step, to realize you can't work on so many sites at once. MMO is way hard and you have to write tons of reviews to get the results you want. Until you realize this, it's hard to rank anything.

I'm glad you have a realistic view because it's better than not realizing how much work it takes and quit before you reach your goals.

Yes, there hasn't been a woman qualifying for Vegas in a few years, but hopefully that changes soon. :)

Thanks for all your well wishes and encouragement! I wish you the same and I will see you in Vegas one year!!
