About Done

Last Update: January 10, 2015

I've been with WA for seven months and have had no results. I'm certainly not blaming WA and the members have tried to help but I'm getting nowhere with my website. I can't get the links connected right and nothing I do is helping.

As much as I hate to leave, I am paying for nothing and since I am a widow that lives on a widow's social security I simply can't afford it anymore.

I love you all and have grown very close to some of you and I will miss you terribly but I have to do what is best for myself.

I wish you all the best of success and abundant blessings from God. I wish you health, wealth, and happiness in all that you do. You have been a blessing in my life and I truly wish I could have made it.

I haven't completely made up my mind and I know I'll have to make a decision soon, so please keep me in your mind and heart and pray for me. I want to make the right decision.

God bless you all,

Phyllis

Phyllis,

Have you tried everything laid out here:

How To Get The Help Here At WA... Guaranteed!

That said I can appreciate where you are. I've been there. But sometimes it may be a matter of trying a different niche rather than just giving up.

You've learned so much and it would be a shame to see you walk away from it. Why not try selling the skills you've learned to other people or companies that may need it. For instance you know how to create websites know and you have the ability to create unlimited websites here on wa. You can offer website development services to local business or people you know. Even people that have websites often aren't happy with them because they aren't responsive (mobile ready) or they don't know how to update or add new content.

Or you can offer to optimize their current website because most business owners don't know anything about keyword research etc.
So there are many ways to make money with this business. Take a step back. But don't give up.

I hope this gives you something to think about.

You're welcome Phyllis! That's why we're all here and I'm glad you reached out so we can give you some insight. You know so much more now that can really be leveraged in other ways if you think outside the box.

WA obviously teaches us how to succeed in the affiliate marketing business. But so many of the skills we've all learned here can be used in other ways to make money that don't involve affiliate marketing.

When your friends, family, local businesses and colleagues hear that you know how to create websites and do SEO you'd be surprised how many will say hey I need a website or know someone that does.

So look at the full picture Phyllis! You have so much to offer with your skills. You may end up discovering that God has a different path for you. It's not always what we think. Just be open to all the possibilities and don't give up!

Phyllis,
I just visited your "My Christian Products" site and it looks great. You have a nice layout and a lot of good blog posts.

Which links are you having difficulty with? Perhaps point me to a couple examples and I might be able to help.

Also, I should note that I had not made any sales for the first 4 or 5 months and had basically let my site sit idle for a few months. To my surprise, when I checked back in, I had made a number of sales and have some commissions being paid this month. As a result, I have renewed optimism and have begun working on my site again.

I would hate to see you leave after so much work and with such a nice site. Please send me a PM if I can be of some assistance.

-Patrick

Thank you Patrick. I don't know what is wrong, but I don't think my links are connected to the different merchants or with WA. I've had traffic but no referrals and people have bought products/items through my website but I didn't get the commission. My two websites are http://mychristianproducts.com and http://makingalivingfromhome. http://siterubix.com. Any help that you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Phyllis,
Would you be able to direct me to a specific link through which you know that somebody has purchased a product?

One thing to do would be to go to your affiliate webpage (e.g., Linkshare, Shareasale, Amazon, Pepperjam (i.e., e-Bay) and run a report to see if any commissions may be on hold or pending.

You may already have done this, but here are a few things to confirm:

* Some affiliates hold payments for a period in alignment with their return policies (e.g., if they allow customers 30 days to return an item, they may not pay commissions until those 30 days have elapsed.

* Also, most affiliates will not release commissions unless/until you've provided them with a W-9 form for tax purposes.

* Lastly, you need to ensure that you've provided the affiliate with a means and preferred method to distribute your commission, e.g., direct deposit to a checking account or check by mail.
