$12,000 For Christmas 2019 (+ Actionable Advice)

Last Update: January 07, 2019

Two years ago I wrote a post titled 3 Steps to $2,000 Extra: Christmas 2017. The concept was simple: write content using these three formats:

  • "Best of" lists
  • Product reviews
  • Keyword based content

Was it a fad? Did the success fade away after the hype? No.

Two years later, that income has grown to $12,000 for the holiday season.







How did I do it? How did I grow that income from $2k to $12k?

Same thing as always. I focus on writing content that gets found in Google.

This is exactly what Kyle teaches in the training. It's what Jay talks about during his weekly webinars. Stick to the training! Particpate in chat and live webinars. Take action every day.

Many people will look at a $12,000 month and think "Wow, I wish that was me." Well, it can be you. It took me 3 years to bring that site to that level of income. If you start now, you can have the same thing (or more) by 2022.

Roope had a great blog post about taking action, and I agree with him. The tools are here. People are seeing success. The opportunity to have a full time online business is literally right in front of you. You just have to take action to see results.

My #1 Piece Of Advice This Year

==> Set daily goals instead of yearly goals.

Lots of people will set goals like "I want to earn $10,000/month by the end of 2019. That's a great goal, but how are you going to get there?

On your journey to $10k a month, or whatever you goal is, it can feel like every day is a failure because you're not there yet. So set simple daily goals that will get you moving in the right direction.

Here are possible goals that are easy to achieve:

  • 1 hour per day inside Wealthy Affiliate, no matter what
  • Write and publish 1 article per week at any cost
  • Write out your keyword list for the next 30 days on the first of the month
  • Ask one question per week inside Classrooms
  • Watch Jay's webinar at least once per month
  • Complete 1-2 lessons per week

You don't have to do all of those! They're just ideas to show you how to map out your day, week, and month in order to help you achieve your yearly goals. Remember, you can always tweak things along the way to ramp up efforts, or tone things back if you start getting burnout.

Your Homework For This Week!

To set the tone for the rest of the year, I highly recommend you write down a few daily tasks you'd like to accomplish each day. See what you have time for. Set goals according to where you are in the training and your online entrepreneur journey.

Write them down on a sticky note or notepad and keep them close to your work area.

These tiny daily routines will get you closer and closer to your goals for 2019.


What are your daily goals?

Between 2500 and 4000 for december. RPM is like $20-50 during that time period.

Dec was all time high for that site. Usually about $2500 for the month. Trying to make that number a monthly event though :)

My RPM was in the range $22 - 26 on the two sites, but I see a very bad drop in January. In fact they have sent a message with the warning that something like that might be coming.

Great motivating post Nathaniell, and congrats on your success. My goal for this year is to write more content, aiming for 2 articles a week. I know that’s not a lot, but my time is limited, so finding the time to accomplish that is my goal.

Two is a GREAT start. Don't be too hard on yourself. It takes time to gain efficiency and tolerance working online. Small steps over long periods of time is way better than big steps every once in a while.
