Continuing to Strive for Success
Boy time can certainly fly by! A lot of things have changed since I joined WA 6 months ago and one of those things is my understanding of website building and affiliate marketing.
I still remember stumbling on a review of Wealthy Affiliate and wondering if it was just another scam to get me to enter my email address just to watch a bunch or boring videos and ads. I remember googling WA and reading the abundance of reviews available and thinking it just can't be that good. These people must be getting paid to say such nice things. None the less, it was free to start so I took a chance and had a look.
Boy was I surprised when I found a complete community ready to lend a hand, an abundance of training material, and best of all a place to start my website for free with no strings attached. I had to be dreaming right?
Well if it is indeed a dream, I haven't actually woke up yet and I don't think I want to. After 6 months I have a fully functioning website that has made me extremely proud. It may not be making me rich right now but I see potential and that's good enough for me.
Since this is a success post I will share the most recent stats for my website and some goals I would like to set for the near future. Currently my website has:
- 10 Pages
- 58 Posts
- 493 Approved Comments
- an average of between 5 and 10 organic visitors a day. (I have had some really good days with more then 20)
I have also had some luck with google Adsense and Infolinks (a new addition to my website), As well as several sales through Amazon.
One thing I haven't done since starting my website is set strict goals. I know the training tells us to do so but I am always too afraid that I won't meet them so I choose to stay away from them. Thus I will start with some easy goals and see how I make out. Here a few I have in mind:
- Reach 65 posts by the end of March (7 posts in a month)
- Get at least 10 more great comments on my posts
- Improve curent pages
- Make another sale in the next two months (By the end of April)
- Increase daily traffic to at least 15 visitors.
I'm feeling pretty confident that I can reach some of these goals if I really work hard. In the beginning I had hoped to make enough money to be able to make one car payment a month and that is still on my mind. Below you will find my motivation. :)
