The journey of affiliate marketing...isn't it like a storybook adventure? What do you think?

You start with big dreams and small steps, your website a seed in the fertile soil of the digital realm.

At least, this is how I started, as a young accountant lost in the online world…I remember my first sale as if it was yesterday – a little notification that sparked such joy!

Now, look at us, here at WA. We’ve grown and learned, and our small seeds have become bigger or smaller gardens.

But in this growth, how do we know if we are champions or just participants? The answer lies in the “enchanting” world of performance metrics and analysis.

Imagine, you are a young explorer, your business a newly discovered land full of potential, that you are about to conquer.

Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC), this is the coins you spend to invite travelers to your land. It's important, like knowing how much food to pack for a journey.

Lifetime Value (LTV) is like a forecast of the harvest your land will produce from each seed – every traveler that settles in your territory.

And Return on Ad Spend (ROAS)? Think of it as the tales of old traders, telling you if the spices you trade will bring fortunes or if the seas will swallow your investments.

And Conversions…or the sweet music of coins clinking…It’s the proof that your marketplace is bustling and your goods, services, or recommendations are desired and useful to your audience.

You see, understanding these numbers is like reading a map to buried treasure. It tells you stories of past travels and guides you on future voyages. It shows the strength of your ship against the storms your business will most likely face and the winds of change.

End of story! Time is here to pick up our compasses – these metrics – and chart our course towards wealth and financial freedom. No matter our location in this vast world or digital landscape, we must never forget our humble beginnings, but assess how these magical numbers brought us to our current victories.

May your endeavors bring you the treasure you seek.

With sincerity and a shared spirit of adventure,

Oana, a dreamy accountant exploring the online world :)
