My first $1,100 dollar day!

Last Update: August 03, 2013

I'm approaching my 3rd month being a member of wealthy affiliate and out of the blue I get a call from a lady that needs hardwood flooring installed at her house.

She left a message saying that she got my number from my website.

Let me start with a little explanation. When I started at Wealthy Affiliate I built a super quick website explaining that I am an experienced contractor that is new to the area and wanted to bring my business closer to my new home. Currently I have A contracting business that is flourishing in a town that is about a hour away. The commute has been killing me and efficiency is important to me so spending 12 hours a week in the car is definitely not the best use of my time.

So my super quick website explained my circumstance and my desire to specialize my skill only installing hardwood flooring close to home.

Then it happened I got the call, went out on the estimate and I sold the job. The job sold for $1100 dollars and will take about a day to complete.

Not to shabby for A website that only has 3 pages "about us, home, and how it works."

Wealthy Affiliate gave me the idea of niche marketing and that's basically what I did. Contracting usually deals with many different types of jobs which requires a great deal of planning. If I can specialize in the services my company offers I will be able to triple my current income this year.

SO if you have services you would like to offer look around w.a. and local marketing wabinars provided by magistudios they are excellent resources.

Take a good look at what you maybe able to offer your area. Chances are you could cash in.

Godspeed

-Mike

Yeah, and multiply that 12 hours a week by the price of a gallon of gas these days. Hope this is the start of something big!

Awesome stuff Mike, these are the stories I love to hear! Congrats on your new client, the local aspect does work and will continue to lead to more and more business with you. You may even want to consider building out your local presence going forward or even consider offering your local services to other companies (perhaps not your competition though lol).

Again, congrats man!
