What A Year Can Do: 2017 $374 vs 2018 $3,870 Black Friday Results

Last Update: November 30, 2018

Hello WA Warriors!

I hope this is a much brighter and motivating post today!

I wanted to show you what my Black Friday results are this year compared to last year so you can see what a year's worth of work can do.

Of course, my results are definitely not to boast about compared to other Super Affiliates but from where I'm sitting it's a pretty good increase from last year, even though I hoped I had more. Lol

Don't we always want more? :)

In 2017, my Black Friday results could be counted on ONE hand, I had 3 sales, totaling $374.

In 2018, my Black Friday results needed more hands and feet than I have to count them all, I have 31 sales, totaling $3,870 (updated final number).

So, my income for this event increased almost 10x from one year's worth of work!


Why Did My Black Friday Sales Increased So Much From Last Year?

If you have gone through my "Littlemama's Road To Vegas Training Series", you'll know that last year was when I started putting in a lot of work in the beginning of my 2nd year here.

All that work, writing all those hundreds of reviews, resulted in crazy results in 2018, all the referrals I got this year can't even compare to last, it's like 5400 referrals vs 300 referrals, respectively.

People always wonder how I got all my traffic and results, and it's because of writing TONS of product reviews. This is exactly what is taught in the Affiliate Bootcamp and what I show you how to do in detail in my training series.

So, even though in my last post I pointed out my numbers weren't doing as well, I was not worried about this Black Friday because majority of the work has already been done.

What I was worrying about was my future because this is how this online business works, you don't get paid for the work you do today but for the work you did building up to it (however long that may be).

This year, not as worried about Black Friday because I already have over 5,000 referrals inside WA and I already know WA has a great sales funnel for Black Friday, and I already have a large email list so all I had to do was do some email marketing and write about it on my site.


One Email Really Caught People's Attention

Instead of continuously emailing people about the same Black Friday offer, one of my emails was actually TEACHING people how to earn $130 per sale.

The open rate was better than all the other Black Friday emails and the "clicked" rate was huge:


This goes to show if you are HELPFUL and provide VALUE, results happen.


Is It Worth Going Yearly?

Ummmm, YES!

You have absolutely everything to gain by going Yearly because it takes that annoying recurring payment off your mind so you can full focus on what's important, which is to learn this stuff and do the work.

You still have a little over 24 hours as of this post to take the plunge, so are you going to do it?

For those of you who have gone Yearly, don't let it sit there. Make the BEST year ever and the results will show.

Small actions each day make big, huge results in the future. This goes for anything in life. The trick is making the right small actions like working on your online business that moves you towards your big goals, instead of wasting time on other things or binging on Netflix.

Success can be reached by each of you!

GO OUT AND DO IT! GO YEARLY!

Grace

Hi Grace,

You have definitely achieved your goal of creating a much brighter and motivating post.

Lately I have been drawn in other directions of expanding my knowledge and skills in areas that are more to do with philosophy, psychology and purpose of life. Luckily, life and investments continue to supply the capability to live a life that is personally meaningful and rewarding.

I will continue to follow your footsteps at WA and look forward to reading your synopsis of Vegas 2019.

Regards,
Roger

You're so welcome and glad I can give you a "pick me up"... this business can be very bumpy at times, but keep faith and keep doing the right things to get to your goals.

Grace,

First, let me say congratulations on your Black Friday output. That increase is evidence for everyone here at WA that this stuff WORKS. The numbers don't lie.

Second, I am honored to have you as the WA Warrior that showed me while I was surfing around the open door to this community. I did go yearly during Black Friday and I know it was a good move on my part.

PS. I don't binge on Netflix, however, Fantasy Football does take up a little time and of course my day job, which, one day will go Bye Bye because of Wealthy Affiliate.

Have a great day!

Hi Calvin, thanks very much for your kind words! I'm honored to be your mentor here and hope I can show you even more. If you ever need help from me, please never hesitate to reach out. :)

I think if you can inject a little fun like Fantasy Football into your schedule then that's cool. Just don't let it take over your precious weekends or evenings too much.

As you have a full time job, it just means it will take a little longer for you but I have seen many have been able to quit their jobs and I know one day that will be you too.

I hope I can help you get there!

Thank you. I love this phrase you said "You don't get paid for the work you do today, you get paid for the work you did building it up..." that really helps get things in perspective, and helps me keep going, until it does start to pay off financially!

Thank you!

Well done Grace. This is great news. I am about one year behind you in terms of membership so I always look to see where I could possibly be next year.
I got my first annual commission this year too, so I'm very pleased and looking forward to being in your shoes next year - by which time, I'm sure you will have broken the $5k barrier and more.
Well done you. It just shows how hard work can pay off.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks so much Gail! :) That's great to hear you'll be doing the same thing next year. I'm really looking forward to seeing who will be Super Affiliates next year and join me at Vegas 2020!

This month I'm definitely breaking that $5K barrier, but it will take some more work to keep it above that mark. I know I have much more work to do with the direction I want to go. :)

Wish you much success next year!!

HI Grace,

WOW, what a drastic difference, how inspirational for others to read.

And the key was: Continue following the training and do what it teaches you on a daily basis, how much easier can it be.

Have not had the chance to read your Vegas training yet. But I do have it mentally bookmarked to read before the New Year, and I look forward to seeing what knowledge and extra tips you have managed to stuff into it as well.

Thanks for sharing,

Calvin

Outstanding Grace, you never seem to amaze me and how your year and progress has gone.

An absolute inspiration for us all!.

I am not sure of the time frame you are mentioning here - how many days, but you are certainly on the $500 a day mark for the week! Well done on that!.

Thanks so much Derek! You're always so supportive of me!

My biggest day was $906! A personal record. :)

I hope I can rock this even more next year. I really could have done a lot more but I was not feeling it and really dragged myself to even write those emails. LOL

I can't let that happen again next year. I should have gotten the 1% I thought I would get. Oh well, lesson learned. I'll take what I got. :)

Wish you much success in 2019!!

Congratulations Grace on your Black Friday success. You are a wonderful inspiration.

I took the Black Friday special again for a second year, now it's up to me to follow your training. I was extremely inspired by your first Road to Vegas video, then things got in the way. I've made a decision that nothing will stop me from following the rest of that training. Here's to 12 months from now!

With Best Wishes :)

Hello Grace, i am really inspired as always... you are indeed my greatest motivation. I wanted to upgrade for the black Friday Offer but i am unstable to do that so i will have to go yearly again in march.

littlemama Premium
I'm so happy to share with you and motivate you this way. Yeah, you're already Yearly, so it's cool. $60 in the big scheme of things is not that much when you are already saving a lot with the $359 price. It's really a steal! :)

I wish you so much success in 2019!

Grace,
Congratulations on your Black Friday sales that is great.
I am so happy that you have shared this with us letting us
know what is possible if only you are willing to work for it.
I knew this year things were not going to be easy for me
but I did throw it out there on my Social Media links.
No Premiums yet but had two people sign up as free members
one on the 24th and one on the 25th so keeping my fingers
crossed maybe one will see the light :)
Thank you as always for such inspiration and yes I am going
to work hard all of 2019 to make it for Black Friday next year :)

Hi Susan,

First of all thank you so much!

That is great to hear about your new referrals. It is about getting out there and being in front of people at times like this if you don't have organic traffic working for you yet.

I had my first sale in my 2nd month here from Twitter because I was chatting with people on there, so social media works but it's a lot of getting in front of people.

Try also Facebook Groups, go in there with the intention of helping and people will then follow you or ask you questions, etc which you can lead them here to WA.

I hope to do more of that in 2019 as well to get more reach. There are a few avenues I need to try in the next year to really kick it up a notch but this is how it's done. You do one thing first (like I did SEO), then you can try other stuff and master other traffic sources.

It's a long learning process and there is SO MUCH to learn out there. Learning SEO is one of the big ones to master and one of the most lucrative so having this in your back pocket is always a good thing.

Best to you!
Grace

Grace,
Thank you for this extra tip I am working SEO as
much as possible if I notice a post has not been
indexed at the end of a week I redo the meta
description and keywords because sometimes I
mix the keywords up a do not use the right one first
amazing that a little thing like that can affect things.

Hi Susan, you're welcome! :)

If it's not indexed? Do you use Fetch as Google in Search Console? I use this for every new post I publish.

If not, you should check how to do that, just search it in the WA search bar. :)
