My First Commission!

Last Update: January 31, 2018

YES! So I had just woken up and had decided to check my email when I saw that I had gotten MY FIRST REFERRAL PURCHASE! The commission was an amazing USD26.85, which translates into around SGD40!

I checked my stats on Google Analytics, and it showed that I only had 6 people view my site from an organic search (bear in mind that I'm only getting 20 views/week) and one of them made a purchase!

My elation at the time was beyond description! I was excited breathless and astonished that it had actually happened, refreshing and re-refreshing my email over and over again. My site has only been up for around 2 months, and I uploaded the post that got me the referral on 13 Jan! One thing I took extra care of were the keywords, which I didn't spam throughout my article (in fact I wrote the article about a topic first then decided on suitable keywords later so that I wouldn't inadvertently keyword-stuff).

I have this sinking feeling that it may have just been luck (with such little traffic), but it's most definitely progress nonetheless!

I'm really super glad that my website has made this, as it gives me some small affirmation that I'm on the right track, even with my niche as broad as it is (anything Star Wars related).

So to anybody out there, do press on! Even if you haven't seen results yet, IT"S MOST DEFINITELY ON THE WAY!
