Yeeehaaa! My 3rd Sale On My Dive Site

Last Update: May 15, 2018

My 3rd Sale On My Dive Site!!

This is a site I created around mid-January 2017 and in September I received my first commission which was over $200.00 US. I made another sale earlier this year about 1 1/2 months ago and just made this sale which I received an email (see image above) saying I have another commission approved.

I stopped writing on this site in February this year because I have been focusing on the Super Challenge.

I want to say thank you to everyone who have been blogging here, helping me and explaining and repeating things over and over. I have such a 'thick head'....lol.

I appreciate all your likes and for 'friending' me here. You have all given me a ton of encouragement when I read your tips and lessons.

Kyle, Carson and Jay and to your staff ... words can't express what I really want to say, other than I will think of you all tonight!!

I really didn't think I could even make a sale and (chuckle) .. I'm doing this and yes, I'm going out to CELEBRATE. Looks like the $40.61 USD when converted to CDN will be around 52.27 will be spent at a restaurant tonight where I can have some yummmmy lobster tail.

You guys rock... Keep up the good hard work. When you feel down and don't think you are getting anywhere, stop, breathe... exercise, hang out with positive people and get back into it 'full force' like you mean it with conviction.

If you are like me, yup a 'bobber' or a 'yoyo' as in up and down, multi-tasking like crazy.... makea list of things you need to do, from that figure out what the most important tasks are, my mini-tasks are working. Follow Jay's 21 Minutes 7 Steps to Ranking video.... this REALLY works.

Cheers and have an AWESOME day.

I'm doing the dance... Thank you EVERYONE for being you!

ohhh this is 328 words

Excellent.

I have read quite a few of your site posts when I see them come up in Site Comments and always liked your site. Shame you have put it to one side.

I was tempted to do the same when the SWAG came up but in the end, took the opposite choice and continued with my travel site. I just found it a lot easier to write about what I was passionate About. I do hope you get back to the Diving site again as you can see there are profits to be made.

Good look with the Future.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for your great comment here.

Wow... I'm really glad you like reading some of my dive posts. My earlier ones are pretty bad and I hope to go back and fix them.

I just got back working on my dive site because I was really missing it. I think of diving seriously every day and wonder why I live currently in a place with no ocean. Interesting, my site trust is still at 100% even though my writing stat is down to like 20% but that will come up in no time now that I'm back to writing and I will finish my first post tomorrow since my return.

The SWAG was something I wanted because it was a challenge but it was also taking a toll on my Bootcamp which happily I'm back into it and also have more time for my friends and family. I'll still write the occasional article on my WA site.

Best,
Monica

I think even though you think the writing was bad, your passion for diving came through and that's one of the most important things!

I too cringe when I read back through some of my early posts. Like anything writing content is a process that we improve and perfect over time.

I hear you on the No ocean front. I live in the hills right in the middle of the UK. Even at the coast diving is sporadic and most of the year impossible. I only get to hit the water once or twice a year at most and that just isn't enough!

It is Normally pretty good when I do get wet though. I posted about my last two trips if you are interested.

It's always amazing how some sales can really help boost motivation to write content.

Good luck With the Site, I'm sure with the passion you have for diving you can make a go of the site!

Hi Steve,

I just read both your articles. You write very well and I enjoyed reading them. Also left you a comment.

Yes, making sales certainly does give motivation.

If you haven't been to Grand Turks, Turks and Caicos Islands, perhaps you will do the trip there one day. The humpback whale season is from January thru March. One of the top 10 for wall diving.

Keep up with the good work on your travel site. I really like it.

Best,
Monica

Never been to the Turk and Caicos. Despite it being a British overseas territory it's not a very popular destination from the UK and hence flights and accommodation are pretty pricey. Unless the travel agents pick somewhere up there are normally few direct flights to get there. Still, I have always wanted to visit.

Been to quite a few Caribbean destinations for diving, Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic.

Thanks for the comment, much appreciated. Glad you liked the articles and site. I fully intend to keep up the pace and fingers crossed the traffic and sales keep growing too.

Good luck

Steve.

Awesome job, and you did it by yourself my dear friend!

Mahalo!

Hi Frank,

Thank you. You will experience the same, you will get sales... I know you will.

I had to look up the meaning of Mahalo and it means 'Thank you'.

Is there a place(s) in Hawaii where I can learn taiko drumming? I took some lessons on this when I was visiting my little sister in the states and it was a lot of fun.

My next dive trip is in Maui for night diving and if I have time, I want to pick this up again.

I wish you much success in your online business.

Why thank you, Monica, for your confidence. As for "Mahalo!" Sorry whenever I see an Oriental such as yourself I assume you're from here. and a diver none the less. lols, as you know Hawaii is surrounded by water.

Monica, I'm embarrassed to say that I'm not familiar with "taiko drumming." My apologies, I'm not a traditional y'know Japanese. My national heritage went out the door, being a third generation Japanese. Here on Oahu there is a Japanese Cultural Center, I think they can direct you a group that specializes in Taiko Drumming.
Hope that helps Monica!



Now go make your oodles of money my dear friend!

Wow Monica, why didn't you just stick with your Dive site instead of doing two sites (and a hard one too, SWAG)?

I mean, to have a dive site that gave you $200 commissions on ONE sale, I would have worked my @ss off on that one site this year to see what else it could get me.

You still can. The bootcamp site will take you another good 12 months before you see any traction, which could be spent on your dive site instead and have that site generate a 4 digit income by this year some time.

You wanna sell your dive site?? LOL. PM me.

Thank you.

I love the west coast myself... from Vancouver, BC.

A dive site is a website in scuba diving. I give tips and have 2 affiliate programs. I am an affiliate with Amazon to sell scuba gear and the other afiliate is to promote scuba dive dive destinations to places all over the world. I write about the gentle sea creatures and give recommendations.

I wish you much success in your online business.
