June & July Month Reports

Last Update: August 17, 2020

Here are the stats for June and July respectively:


Disclaimer why these are late- Life has been super busy since we got back to England at the end of May. All of my time to work on my online business has been spent actually helping referrals and people, working on things, creating content and podcasts and with my writer. This got pushed to the back burner

Lessons

  • Changing things doesn't always make them better. I had 60 referrals in April and 13 upgrades. Conversions have been way lower since I changed the way that people join WA through my site (for some reason I haven't changed it back yet, just writing this has made me realise how crazy that is!!... gonna do that now!)
  • You can't rely on one source of income- I had my sights set on joining a premium ad network (Mediavine) for 2 websites. That would have given me over $1,000+ a month income from ads alone. They changed their requirements from 25,000 sessions to 50,000 monthly sessions... so that has been delayed.
  • Always continue to help people. The more I help people with online businesses the more it pays dividends in the end. I helped a few people start a podcast and received commission from some affiliate programs I recommended. I never tried to sell anything I just told them truthfully what I personally recommend.

Pinterest Traffic

On another note, my other site is still getting good traffic from Pinterest. There was a viral spike in May but I haven't created any content on this site since December 2019 and it's still getting decent traffic as Pinterest has a search function (like YouTube and Google)...

I've had a ton of chats with people on the podcast about Pinterest and I summarised the main takeaways here.

How have your June and July been? Any lessons you've learnt recently?

Wow you're really doing great! You're a huge inspiration for me!

Oh and thanks too for responding to the questions I had on your last reports post (the update on what was working best for you, opt in or link).

I took your advice and took the leap. I decided to agree to work with my offline biz client on site management and seo. We'll see how it goes :)

I'm also going to finally take the plunge and start my MMO site ... wish me luck!!

Here's to a great August / September for both of us!
Best, Shannon

Shannon,

I do think that you are making some very good decisions.
Diversify your income.
We can do that at WA.

I do some website management and SEO work for a few Clients also.
It pays well.

I am also launching my WA MMO website this week.

I wish you all the very best. 🙂

Thanks Cassi!

I am finding that I need to pick up more work outside of the house lately to make ends meet. I would much rather work from home, not only to be here when I am needed but also due to all the craziness in the world today. So I think it is time I pick up the pace and dedication to the projects here at WA that have mostly been a hobby and learning experience so far. I know there is great potential here and plan to make the most of everything I have learned thanks to WA :)

Best of luck on your new site launch!!

I look forward to following your success.

That's great Shannon!! Sounds like you're onto great things (never any doubt of that anyway!)

Keep me posted on how the SEO work goes. I've considered starting an SEO agency but I know the systems in place will really help.

Thanks for sharing

Awesome Post Mike!

It is always encouraging to see the numbers and statistics.
Especially the one with Pinterest. I have already checked your link and that is cool stuff.

I started to implement it yesterday. Still need to do some work, but that is OK.

Congratulations on your progress Mike!
Cheers,
Mike :)

Hello Mike,

I hope you're doing well, it looks like you are!

Well done for making it happen, it looks like things are really moving forward, great results!

It's great that you found a writer through Jerry's training, this is something that I want to go through as I could really do with a writer. How long did actually take you to find a writer?

I have been slightly quieter on the Internet front due to my off-line business being extremely busy. I'm just starting to get back on track now with the online stuff.

Have a great day.

Roy

Awesome Roy, what’s your offline business?

It took about a week to do it all. I went through the Training and took action at the same time. I work better that way and it made me do it straight away rather than thinking about it.

I’d personally recommend to do this only when your site is making money though. So you have a clear path of what you want the writer to do

Awesome. That change from 6k to 40k really is amazing. Where else can you 7x foot traffic to your business in half a year? Glad to hear you're still rockin' the podcast thing. Do you have any goals for big guests upcoming?

How long til you're a guest on Rogan's podcast? LOL

Yeah so true! It's impressive what can happen with a site and it's a massive eye-opener to be honest!

Haha, big Joe's lined up for next month ;)...

That’s great!! If you keep taking action every day it really starts to snowball.

Even a little bit makes a huge difference
