New Year, New Milestones - $175+ In 1 Week!
Hello my lovely WAers. I hope that the holidays went well for you. Happy new year!
Yeah, I'm kind of late in wishing you guys because I've been a little busy just enjoying my time with family members during the holiday season. I didn't touch my business for two whole weeks and it felt awesome!
And I still made money even though I wasn't actively working, which is what you're working towards when you're in this business, right?
November 2019 Report
Well, I'll start from November 2019 since it's been that long since I've updated/documented by progress.
Apart from the number of referrals going up (I had 155 starter referrals), I was really disappointed! I knew I was going in the right direction but unfortunately, nobody actually took up my offer to go annually and take advantage of the Black Friday sale.
Even if I promoted with all my might, even if I emailed my email list and promoted it, even though I made videos on Youtube about it. :(
All the hard work resulted in this; I only got 1 new premium sale, 1 recurring monthly premium sale and 1 recurring annual sale. I made $161.50 in that month from WA and $50 from Google Adsense, for a total of $211.50 USD.
I'm still happy I made something, but after 2 years with WA and building my business, you would expect to see more, right?
December 2019 Report
I really only worked for the first 2 weeks in December 2019, obviously because of the holidays, but I wasn't really feeling it because of my disappointment the previous month.
However, I'm happy that I still hit some nice numbers, while not even working on my website for half the time. It's amazing once you get the authority and momentum that your website needs, that you're able to make money without much work.
I had 110 referrals, which is quite a good month considering my other months in 2019 and also considering that December is quite a slow month for my niche in general.
I made 2 new sales and a recurring monthly sale, for a total of $39.50 from WA. Then, I also made $57 in Google Adsense, which brings my total to $96.50.
Again, considering that I have been with WA for over 2 years now, it really pains my heart to not be seeing these numbers go up, but I will not give up.
January 2020 Report - First week!
Yeah, I know it's a little too early to be giving a report right now for this month, but this month started out REALLY good, making up for the disappointment of the previous months.
I made 2 sales from my website (promoting another program) paying me $47USD each. I already have 17 new referrals as well. 2 of these people went premium with WA and I've already had 2 recurring monthly WA sales.
I've also already made $20 in Google Adsense.
The total of all of that comes to $177 USD in earnings in my very first week of 2020!
Something else that I'm so excited about as well is that my though I haven't worked on my Youtube Channel for over 3 weeks, the number of subscribers just keeps growing! I should hit the milestone of 1000 subscribers within the week.
What To Keep In Mind
This is a marathon and NOT a sprint. Sure, there are a few people here at WA who will achieve great results within a small period of time but always remember that those people are few and far in between.
It can be disheartening and disappointing to see dips in your business, and it may feel like your hardwork isn't amounting to anything.
It can feel like a waste of time sometimes and you could even start questioning whether to renew your subscription next month.
But know this: most people will be like me, working hard the first few years to get the business rolling. It probably won't be another year or two until I start to really see full-time income from my online business.
But you know what the correct attitude would be towards this?
So what if it takes me 2-3 more years to see a full-time income from my website? So what if it takes me 2 more years to be financially free and achieve time-freedom? This is better than having NONE of them, and being trapped in modern slavery until I retire, right?
What do you think? How long are you willing to give yourself to reach your goals? How patient are you? How hard are you willing to work to achieve this freedom for yourself and your family?
Online business isn't hard. It's being PATIENT and having the STRENGTH to keep going that's hard.
