Who says content marketing is slow: $125 commission immediately on one purchase on new site

Last Update: May 18, 2018

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

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/mozmary/blog/omg-page-1-of-g...

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! :)

Mary

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 :)

That’s awesome! I was feeling discouraged because I changed my mind about a niche after purchasing a domain for it. I didn’t want to buy another one. Maybe free won’t be so bad...

oh you meant free site, I must amend that, I meant free theme and free plugins, nothing bought, like no pro plugins, or anything other than what we get here

free .siterubix.com sites do work perfectly well, I know someone who got 23,000 monthly visitors on a free subdomain site, however when he switched to an own domain to take his business up a level he lost a lot of the traffic, so you can certainly use free and work through the training and experiment to see what niche you really want - saves buying domains that we don't want, which we all do - but when you settle on a niche and start to get traffic then switch over to a domain

yes, jumping in too quick to a domain when we don't know what we really want to commit to can cost us a new domain name down the road!

I've parted with some domains in the past, made a mistake using the name 'wordpress' in them! Others I've actually held onto and found a use for. Certainly pursue what interests you, will work out best

I know Mary and I am still that budget kind of girl. I know the 20 percent is pretty good. I was chuffed to bits when I got it lol. I still get my 20 percent too. I did all mine with no ads the lot. I like budget. Its good.

WOWEE! You're on fire and simply by using your smarts to outsmart the system! Great going! Proud of you, my dear!
Reply
MozMary Premium
not quite sure what you mean here, the system that Kyle set up in the training is what I followed, just the basics here with good content, I guess if any system has been outsmarted it would be those relying on tricks to rank and bad SEO which thankfully Kyle warns us away from all the time, or maybe those who rely on just one type of marketing such as email lists and pressure sell launches like the summits
