WA makes me $200 a day
So I've been here for nearly a year now, and hopefully without bragging, I'm pleased to say that WA makes me $200 a day, but not in the way that you might think...
I suppose the first thing you are going to ask me is how I do it. It's a good question and one I will most definitely answer. Before I go on, I think it's worth saying that I have worked my butt off to do it, but I want you to know that it certainly is possible, doable, and achievable.
To be honest, I haven't completed the certifications yet but that is something that I'm working on and will continue to work on as I would like to expand my online business further and completing the certifications I believe is a must. In order to have a consistently earning successful affiliate site, you have to put all the pieces in place and the best way to do that is FOLLOW THE TRAINING!!
So, the burning question!? I suppose I had better tell you what I'm doing to earn $200 a day...
What I have done in terms of the training provided here at WA is watch all of the videos including all of the live training WAbinars by Jay. This is an important step. When I first started I was keen to get my site up and running and went at it like a bull at a gate. What I realised was the more training I watched, the less I knew. Not such a bad thing because I knew I was learning more and more as I went along. What I noticed was that in hindsight, there are a lot of pieces to put together and I had done things that I found out later down the track needed to be changed to suit my life, style, and what I wanted in an internet business. I'm not by any means saying that following the training and acting upon the tasks is a bad thing to do, but as I found out more and more about the business and what was available to do online, I started putting together an entirely different plan from the one I started when I got to WA.
Whilst watching the training, I also noticed little hints and clues along the way. Mainly from Jay's training (I'll have to buy the guy lunch sometime). What dawned on me was that I could teach local people to do what I have been taught in order to get their digital marketing up and running.
As you may or may not know, I've been a professional musician for a long time so I have skills in recording and songwriting. What I do is combine that with some design skills and copy-writing to provide a package that I can sell to businesses, whether it be simple graphics for Facebook ad campaigns or fully produced ads. I do want you to know that I didn't do this before I joined WA, but being in the entertainment industry has certainly been beneficial in seeing what people do in the way of advertising.
I did take training outside of WA in regard to the design and copy-writing side of things. I didn't have any skills in these fields before I started at WA and I still have a long way to go in refining them. I think it's important to note that not all the skills that you may want to acquire for your business are found here at WA. That's totally fine. At some point in time I might contribute some training in these fields from what I've learned, but for now it is important to me to make it work for me before I start creating training because I want to be certain that what I create in the way of training is contributing to the WA community. I don't need to re-create training that has been done by the masters, so I''ll just leave that for now. Just remember that YouTube is your friend as well!
I basically went to 4 different local businesses and gave them a free assessment of their digital presence, which included where their website ranked (if they had one), what their social media pages were lacking and gave them 3 free strategies to give their digital marketing a "face lift".
What I found was that these people kinda knew what they needed to do and appreciated the strategies, but didn't have the time to produce the content or implement the strategies. This is the point where I say "well, I have a company that can do that for you".
So basically, I produce digital media for my clients and run their sites, social media and advertising.
I've only had to contact 4 businesses so far and that makes me $1400 a week, and it only takes up just over a third of my week, which gives me time to do all the things that I started this business in the first place to do! And that means I get to create my affiliate site...
The clues are all in the training, folks! It's scattered everywhere that you look. I remember reading a book years ago by Edward De Bono called 'Lateral Thinking'. He talked about a lot of different things, but one that stuck in my mind was about the benefits of landing a plane upside down. Seems ridiculous, doesn't it? What could the possible advantages be? He said that if the cock pit was on the underneath of the plane, you would be able to see the runway when you land. Another perspective. Food for thought...
Thanks for taking the time out of your busy lives to read this (if you made it this far!) and just remember that if you can look at your business from a few different angles, you might just find an angle that really resonates with you in a way you never thought possible.
