Who says content marketing is slow: $125 commission immediately on one purchase on new site
I had told you guys about my post that got ranked on page 1 inside two hours on a new site a couple of months back, just with the basic training here at Wealthy Affiliate
It was a review of an event already underway, so I was way late, they usually have a launch and big campaign advertising these things weeks ahead to their email lists but I had a new site and no list and I thought I'd go through the motions anyway to build up content not expecting much, certainly not expecting to outrank the organizers inside two hours on page 1 with my new site - however I'd seen someone else here at WA do it before - but there was no stampede visible in analytics and when the host emailed us to go claim our commissions I didn't even look! Until tonight!
- I just found out that even at the end of that event I got 3 optins and at least one person immediately bought the gold package at almost $250 leaving me with 50% commissions of $125!
This is the second time I've advertised an event late, towards the end actually and got people buying gold packages, the other time was on facebook. I always think maybe it's too late, should I even bother, duh! And then it surprised me they don't go for the lower priced packages, it's usualy the higher priced ones. Another surprise is the people buying are not exactly who I thought my website audience were!
However, it shows the amazing potential of this game, erm, biz. Of course this is one sale and as such 'pocket money' but the sort of pocket money that can cover your hosting and membership pretty quickly as we work consistently on our sites over time and scale up to an income.
We are playing a long game building up sites, it's not a get-rich-quick scheme but a real business if you want to see a real income. That said, on a bright and cheerful note anything really can happen! :)
ps I'm using a free theme and free everything at the moment. And google tends to reward my original content - I don't copy, and I do know my niche, both these things Kyle emphasizes in the training.
Update: the commission payment just came in tonight May 18th :)
