2018 - Another Year Of Success Growth At Wealthy Affiliate
Last Update: May 6, 2019
I was a little surprised, but not that surprised at how long my list of success stories from 2017 became (Is Making Money Getting Easier In 2017 And Beyond?). I created that list just for myself to send to people when they ask, "Does WA really work?" Originally, I limited myself to posting "big" success stories of full time income, big paydays, or other impressive things like traffic stats. Eventually I started adding anything that sounded inspirational or interesting.
Before the Black Friday event I sent out an email with a link to that post, and it was one of my most popular emails. People were blown away at how much they had missed!
Those are just the stories I find in my daily WA browsing. I'm sure a lot more stories went unpublished to protect their privacy, or I didn't even see them. This list is exclusively non-MMO relatead. In other words, these are niches not related to "making money online", affiliate bootcamp, or promoting WA.
Looking forward to a great 2018 guys. Keep up the good work!
