Milestone Month: $100+ commissions!
FINALLY I'm at the point where things are starting to go UPWARDS and I'm hoping it's going to keep going up, up, up from here!
I joined WA in Aug 2016, spent a full year and a bit building a big site that I finally understood was never really going to get anywhere, money-wise. I started fresh 6 months ago taking what I learned and building a new site that is actually beginning to now really take off! On it, I'm now to 80-100 organic visitors/day, and this month I finally topped $100 commission for the 1st time (purely Amazon at this point).
I'm feeling great about this. I know it's "only" $100, but it's giving me a real sense of relief that at some point in the not-toooooo-distant future I'll be able to say this affiliate marketing gig is actually profitable haha. (I started my first site in August 2016... I have yet to earn back the 2 yearly fees plus the domain fees. I'm CLOSE though, yay!!)
I think once I'm actually making some nice money with this (I mean "big picture", revenue minus all expenses), I'll be willing to actually tell people about this hobby/stay-at-home "thing" I do called "affiliate marketing". So far, just my husband and 3 or 4 select friends and family know that I put hundreds of hours in the evenings into website building and writing... am I weird for keeping it quiet?
Anyhow, wanted to put this out there, make a prediction, perhaps... that eventually I'm going to have one profitable website! It CAN be done! :)
I'll post again at my first $1000 month!
