How To Succeed & Fail At The Same Time (aka WA Does Work!)

Last Update: April 24, 2018

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to post what I hope is a bit of a motivational post, as I know sometimes people question if this stuff really works/whether that many people are really making money. My story is not earth shattering, but I hope it can inspire people to keep going (and not get distracted!)

I joined WA about 2 and a half years ago and I made my first sales within 2-3 months. So it was obvious the system worked to me very quickly.

Then for some reason unbeknownst to anyone (including me) I decided to shoot off elsewhere and start a Mum blog.

I completely forgot about all the niching down of my website content, the targeted monetisation stuff and long tail keyword research and started writing parenting posts (some personal, some tutorials etc), thinking that Pinterest would save me and bring me a fortune in ad revenue. Or that Vogue would call on me to write a stellar parenting article (that's a joke!). Well, 'ta da' it didn't happen. I hardly made a penny and I got VERY overwhelmed!

The Importance Of Regaining Focus

So after a year or so, I came back here to regain focus (although I never left WA) and started foscusing again on proper monetisation. My Mum blog is now much more focussed (and I'm so happy with it now), plus I'm starting to really increase income from my original sites I started here.

I absolutely know it's not a fortune (I do make income from other affiliates too), but here's a screenshot of my Amazon revenue for the past 6-7 weeks - I've seen steady growth since I became more focused around Jan 2018 and I can see sales from new posts starting to kick in, plus my sales are MUCH more consistent.




And it's down to proper monetisation, really niching down my affiliate site topics and writing quality content with proper keyword research - i.e. EVERYTHING taught here.

Sometimes, we have to go a bit AWOL to learn things about ourself and I've realised I need a proper plan and blueprint to follow, very much in line with the tools taught at WA.

I've really set my sights on reaching a FT income by end of 2018, as I've got other affiliates I'm building up as well as Amazon (plus I'm doing the Super Affiltae Challenge), but if I can get Amazon to $500 a month before too long I'll be super happy.

I hope that helps a little folks - WA does work - it's sometimes us that gets in the way (well in my case anyway!)

Cheers

Sarah

P.s. that's not me in the photo. I can't do that with my legs!

Yes, sometimes we have to wander off track to find our way back and realize it was better not to have left. ;-)
