I made 3 Figures this month! Yippee!

Last Update: December 01, 2018

Wow! What a month it has been!

I started it out not knowing how much I was going to make, if anything, but working even harder than last month. In october, I got my first sale that paid me a commission of $47 after which, I went WILD on content!

I knew that if I made one sale, I could make 10, I could make 100, I could even make a 1000! What I didn't know was that I was going to hit 3 figures!

I made $223.86!!!

The Breakdown For November

Posts published - 28

All Time Total Number of posts on my website - 143 posts

Number of visitors to my website - 3,224

Total starter referrals in November - 29

Total premium referrals In November - 2

Commissions

WA - $138

Adsense - $38.86

Another affiliate program - $47

All this totals $223.86.

December 2018 will mark a year since I joined Wealthy Affiliate and I would have wanted to reach my goals faster for sure, but I didn't work as much during the first 9 months on my website as I should have.

I only published 10 - 12 posts a month, which is not enough in the make-money-online niche. i only realised this in mid-september and made changes to my schedule to be able to post every day.

I'm really glad I made these changes and worked harder because this resulted in me making more money than October and I'm really looking forward to how much this is going to change in the right direction for the coming year.

Message To Newbies And My New Referrals

I started making money on the 10-month mark, which is very slow and not typical. I'm sure I would have given up if I wasn't so desperate to change my life around.

Many people achieve results faster in a different niche and by posting more regularly. Just remember that if you give up, then you won't know just how much you would have been able to achieve.

Give yourself one year, as this is what it usually takes for a business to become profitable. Work on it! Don't let the time pass you by! Learn from my mistake and get those posts out there!

If I had worked hard enough and had 143 posts by the 6-month mark (an average of 23 posts a month) I would have probably started making $500 - $800 every single month right now.

But what's past is past. I now know what I gotta do and although I'm a little late (in my own eyes), I know now that I have to make OTHER things revolve around my business until I start earning a regular income from it.

Don't make the mistake of making your business revolve around the other things in your life else you're not going to make the progress that you want. I know you have kids and you have your day job probably, but after them, make your business the next priority.

When it's time to work, tell the kids so. Time yourself and work maybe 2 - 3 hours a day, even if scattered across the day. Instead of watching movies on Netflix or browsing through your feeds on social media (which are really not going to bring you anywhere in life), WORK ON YOUR WEBSITE!

That's the ONLY way to move things along. If I had quit and told myself that this does not work for me instead of working harder, I would not have been able to see my 3-Figure month. There were so many times that I wanted to guit and so many hardships that I faced but I'm here today because I kept going.

I just wanted to share with you my realizations and results with you so that you don't make the same mistakes that I did and so that you can make your new year here as successful as can be.

Hello Reyhana, this post is amazing! Congratulations on hitting the 3 figure mark by the way, indeed this is proof that this business is a business that will reward you if you remain consistent as well as persistent in your work habits:

Be it how you manage your schedule, how often you work on posting more content, overall just being straight out dedicated to your business is the reason why some of our members like yourself see these results!

The way I see it, if you can do it, so can we, those of us who have yet to see a sale from our websites! This post is insightful because it gives us an idea of how much time and effort is needed to achieve what you have, and you really must have busted your butt off!

May you be blessed to enjoy continued success!

Thanks for sharing this accomplishment with me, Jose.

And yes, it's a business that will reward you handsomely for all the hard work that you put in. But first, you have to treat it like a business for it to make you money like business too.. :)

I absolutely agree! If I can do it, then ANYBODY can do it. It's just a matter of being dedicated and doing what you gotta do to move your business forward.

To me, this business is not a CHOICE, it's an OBLIGATION. Start treating this business like an obligation and you'll see how much of a different a few months of hard work will do... :)

And my hard work is as a result of the demand within my niche. With many niches, it's possible to start making a part-time income within 6 months, publishing 10 - 12 posts a month. It's just that for me, the make money online niche is super competitive and thus, needs more work.

Thanks again and I also wish you great successes ahead! :)

Hi Reyhana,

Great post lets those with a similar background or knowledge (none prior to joining) that it can be accomplished. If you are willing to do like you did follow the training and keep adding content on a persistent and continual rate it will eventually start to pay off

The great news is the lull is over and you start to see steady increases to your numbers. Hold on it may get a little crazy at times :-) Crazy in a good way of course, enjoy.

Hello Calvin! Long time, no see! LOL

Thanks for dropping a few words today and for sharing this great accomplishment with me. And you're right, that's all I did; follow the training and work on it!

it's starting to pay off and can't wait to see what's reserved for me in 2019! Can't want to be in Vegas 2020 and meet Kyle and Carson.

Yes, judging from Jerry and Grace's successes, I can tell it's gonna get crazy. Hopefully, it gets as crazy as that for me too.. ;)

Thanks again for dropping by! I hope everything is going well on your end..

Hey Congrats on the progress. I've been here for a bit now, and often get caught up in reading post etc. However I haven't really progressed along like a should be just based on time and other commitments. That said, I'm glad I came across your post.

Thanks for sharing and again a huge congrats on the achievement as well. You have motivated me to push on forward, and a little harder.

Thanks again.

Thanks T.

Absolutely! keep pushing because you don't want to give up right before the success starts hitting. You didn't put in all this work for all this time, in vain.

Sometimes, it just takes a harder push to start seeing results. Once you start seeing success, you'll know exactly what caused it and you'll be able to multiply it over and over again. :)

So don't give up and no matter for how long you've been at WA, you'll eventually into success..

Reyhana, your results are really
inspiring.

I have been reading your posts
over the last few months and I
had a belief that you are someone
who is capable of becoming really
successful in this business.

Now you really proved that and I am
really happy to see your progress.

Have you got this results by following
the Affiliate bootcamp course?

I'm happy that my post inspired you and thanks for riding with me on this journey... :)

I guess being my age and having already figured out that the only way out of the rat race is this business for me, has really changed my whole perspective.

To me, it's not a CHOICE. It's an OBLIGATION! That's how I take my online business.

And yes, I have gotten these results through following the bootcamp. But it took me 11 months to make 3 figures. Hopefully I can keep that up because a big reason that I was able to make i it to 3 figures is due to my Black Friday Premium referral.

Great message for newbies, novices, everyone in their first year. I plaplanplaplan to keep this in mind. After three months here, I'm changing my niche. I've learned a bunch...enough to know I didn't listen to the "passion" speaches from everyone, so I'm starting over, not quiting. Thanks for the sincere progress report.

Glad you like my post, Richie.. :)

It's okay to have to change your niche. Actually, most first niches are not as successful as you would think and many people start over, until they are able to find something that is both profitable and that they like working on.

It's great to see that you're not losing heart! Because whatever your niche, it's going to work as long as you have a passion for it!

Thanks for reading and sharing in this wonderful achievement with me.. :)

Very inspiring and I am sooo glad that you stuck with. Congratulations to you for that because it takes you wanting to change your circumstance so badly to want to do that.

Yes, for any business it is a learning curb. Staying focused is one of them and it takes for you identify and understand your distraction weaknesses to be able to do something about it.

Well done and I look forward to hearing greater success.

Thanks Choannah! I'm glad I stuck with it too.

There were a few people who joined around the same time as me who I made friends with and we communicated regularly via PM. But then, they slowly started telling me that it has been 6 months and that because they're not seeing results, they won't be staying.

I felt sad and I could also have given up at that time. I was questioning whether I should stay or leave too. But then, I thought about my job that I do daily that I just HATED! I could not keep doing that same job.

I promised myself then I would give myself a year. There were still some distractions then and I would work on my website whenever I WANTED to and not when I NEEDED to. That was the difference. :)

I changed that and see the results!

I will for sure be sharing as I progress. I also wish you great success and would love to hear of your accomplishments here.

This so relates to where I am at the moment, I am giving myself until March 2019 to review whether I am going to continue here if as you say I am not achieving any income success by then. I endeavour to put 2-3 hours per day at present on 6 days each week except for Sunday which is my rest day, but some times life gets in the way. Thanks for you practical comments and well done.

Absolutely, Alan. Giving yourself the one year is very important! I knew that I didn't work as hard as I should have the first 9 months, so I was actually ready to give myself until september 2019. Because september 2018 is when I actually made big changes.

But looks like that was not necessarily. I saw my first sale the next month and made 3 figures the month after that.

Keep going and if you feel your brain is not getting a work out, then you know you're not working hard enough.. lol.. that's how I knew.. ;)

Great job.

How do you schedule your posts. Do you already have content ideas planned before hand or do you research keywords each day?
Reply
Jessibelle72 Premium
Good question. Following.

RDulloo Premium
Thanks, Mubashir.. :)

I work the afternoons so I have time everyday in the morning where I get up and start working on my website right away.

Every Monday, I do my keyword research. I try to find at least 7 keywords for 7 different posts that I will be able to publish over the course of the week.

Then, utilizing the Draft feature within SiteContent, I create 7 drafts and put each keyword within the tile of each draft.

I then write my first post and publish it. If I have enough time, I go through each and every draft and write out headings or make notes on stuff that I want to talk about within the post.

That way, I have the layout and ideas ready for the week. Sub-consciously, your mind will be working on ideas on those 7 different topics as days go by and when you start writing, you'll see that you'll know exactly what you want to talk about.

That's how I'm able to write a blog post within 1.5 hours. Taking the time each Monday to plan out my week helps save so much time over the whole week and having it all planned out makes me actually WANT to work on it.

I hope this helps... :)

It's currently taking me 6-7 hours to write a 1500 - 2000 word article but that includes everything from images, featured images and fully optimising it for SEO.

Thanks for this info. I really need to become more efficient with planning my content. I'l try your strategy and see how it goes.

Do you have one website where you post all the articles/blogs? Or did you start multiple sites?

Thank you,

Thanks so much, Salih.. :)

I only have one website that I have been working on for about a year now and that's where all my articles and blogs go. I create different pages on the same website to promote different programs.

I do mostly product reviews and depending on the what the product was trying to promote, if there is a better alternative out there, I create a landing page for the better product and direct my visitors to that landing page, where they can read more about it and sign up for it.

Hope this helps.. :)

I'm at 199 posts on my affiliate site at my 9 month mark. Let's see if your projections are right. Will my hard work pay off as you're saying? I don't know. Let's see.

Wow! That's awesome! My goal is to have 180 posts until the end of December 2018, so you're definitely ahead. Congrats on getting so many posts out there. The more posts we have out there, the better the chances of getting somebody to our website and making a sale.. :)

And those projections were for me; I'm almost at the 12 month mark and by now, I would have probably started making $500+ every month if I had pumped out twice more content (doubling the money that I made in November).

I'm not even taking into consideration that the money on our website will grow exponentially, like it has happened to so many other people, due to the "snowball-effect" nature of this business. Take for example that I made $223 in november, which is 5 times what I made in october.

Anyhow, I really hope that you make MORE!!!

The $500-mark was where I was envisioning myself after 12 months in this business. It didn't happen, but I'm more hopeful that ever! :)

Thanks for sharing this celebration with me!

It's good you're still in the game. The first year is very discouraging because it's very few results for the work you put in. You've done great! I'm in the same boat: being hopeful. If we both stick to it, I'm sure our goals will be achieved.
