+$2,200 in 20 hours - This Works!

Last Update: June 22, 2020

Many of you who read this are probably just starting out here at Wealthy Affiliate and thinking about questions such,

  1. "Does Wealthy Affiliate really work?
  2. Can I really make money online?
  3. Can I succeed even though I don't have any prior experience of affiliate marketing?"

Let me answer in 3 words: "YES! YES! YES!"

Here's a longer answer in 8 words; "YES! THIS WORKS BETTER THAN YOU CAN EXPECT!"

When I started out here, I wrote my goal that I'd be super excited to make 2,000€/month ($2,275/month) online.

To be completely honest with you, I thought it's hardly even possible. I didn't fully believe I could make it myself.

Now recently I made that same amount in 1 single day! (it actually happened already in February but I wanted to post about it here only after I really got the money in my bank account.)

Here are 5 takeaways and thoughts that I wanted to share with you regarding this nice experience.

5 Takeaways From a +$2,2k Day

1. I made two +$1,000 commissions from a high-ticket affiliate training program that I recently started promoting.

=> It's easier to make money online with big commissions. I started off at WA by reviewing books on my first site. If you manage to sell a $10 book on Amazon for a 4% commission, you'll make only $0,40.

You would need to sell 2,500 such books to make a similar money that you would earn with a single $1,000 commission.

Of course, you need to make sure that that product you promote is worth promoting and providing real value to your audience. I spent 2-3 months first to make sure the program is worth promoting.

2. Email Marketing makes things so much easier in the long run. I was especially happy with this +$2k day because it came 'relatively easy'. I basically needed to send a few emails that made me the commissions.

Of course, I have needed to do a lot of work beforehand to build an email list. But once you have it, it's a huge asset that makes things easier. You can promote products to a 'warm' or 'hot' audience instead of random website visitors.

You have the power to send a email to 100's or even 1,000's of targed people quickly.

3. This is NOT a typical day for me (yet). When I started here, I saw some guys posting that they made +$10,000/month in December and November.

I thought like, "Wow! They're now making +$10,000/month passive income online with affiliate marketing and they could retire if they want." -> completely false thinking!

First, this was a highlight day, not a typical day.

Second, if I want to make similar days in the future, it'll most likely require work/effort and will not come 100% passively.

However, I'm obviously not going to stop here and I'll pursue for more! I know there are many people within the Wealthy Affiliate community who have made much, much more than $2,2k in a day and for them this is just a pocket money! ;)

That just illustrates the huge potential with this 'internet marketing thing'.

I'm sure that at some day in the future, $2,2k will be my typical day. It will obviously take a lot of time + effort to get there. What an amazing feeling to think about it and start working towards there.

What are YOU planning to achieve? :)

4. ANYBODY CAN. I say this always because it's the truth.

If you're a human being and you can read & write English, you can make a nice income with affiliate marketing online.

It's not a matter of whether or not you can, it's a matter of whether or not you will. For example, this week I relaxed too much. I know that if I'd keep on relaxing like that constantly, I'd start sliding down with my online business.

So, you'll need to put in the effort consistently. Then you can achieve anything. Remember also to ask questions from more experienced members often for guidance.

5. You'll most likely achieve much more than you've ever expected or imagined IF you keep on working and never quit.

I know 10's of full-time Internet marketers personally. When I've talked with them, I realized that almost all of them have achieved much more in their Internet marketing careers than they ever expected.

Internet marketing is a much more profitable path for you than almost any 9-5 job. Not only in terms of money but also in how many people you can impact positively and other things.

Even though I have still decades to go on this journey, it already amazes me how many people I can reach at this point.

Imagine that you can literally impact 1,000,000's of lives positively during your lifetime if you use the Internet. That's just mind-boggling and extremely exciting!


Conclusion: If I can do it, YOU can do it!

Here's a short recap of the 5 points.

  1. You'll earn more money if you promote products with bigger commissions.
  2. Email marketing makes things easier (in my personal opinion and experience).
  3. This is NOT a typical day for me yet but it will be in the future.
  4. Anybody can achieve even much greater results. You can as well.
  5. You'll achieve more than you've expected during your journey at Wealthy Affiliate.

Think about the last point.

Those who are here at Wealthy Affiliate just for the short-term will most likely achieve less than they expected.

But those continue and aim for the long-term will make much more than they even imagined is possible.

How long did you take to build ur list before u started promoting high ticket items? I know u have to build trust with ur subscribers first..so curios how long u took building trust?
RoopeKiuttu Premium
I've sent 1 email to my list almost every day since April 2018. I started promoting this high-ticket product in the end of February 2019.

Of course, I could have done it faster but I just found that program quite recently.

Thank you for your response

That's great. So did you try this high to ticket product you were promoting to see if it works? Or did you just pick it because it paid the most? I think the take away here is that the same techniques that wa teaches here can be used to promote anything. But it's still important that you promote high quality products, services and companies you believe in. Or you can risk tarnishing your brand and lose long term money for short term fast money. If people buy something you recommend and it turns out to be crap. They'll never trust you again. I'm not saying that you did this. But I don't want people reading this and thinking you should just go out and promote anything high ticket.
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Yes, you're absolutely right. Long-term gains > Short-term profits

As I wrote in the post, I spent 2-3 months first to make sure the program is worth promoting and use it myself.

Congrats on hooking the big fish! Lol.

When I first started affiliate marketing, I thought no way would folks be willing to spend $1,000s on products. But they ACTUALLY do, as you've proved.

The great thing about promoting products with higher mark up prices that offer generous commissions is that you need less website traffic and fewer purchases to earn a decent income.

And when that income's "residual" (i.e WA commissions), it's the icing on the cake.

Today was a good day for me, I made $100 (100% commission) from 1 sale - which is another great thing about affiliate marketing, depending on the niche/affiliate program and products.
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Sounds great! I'm interested in which program provides 100% commission, gonna send you a PM! :)
neilrc Premium
Cool! You probably already know lol.

Inspirational as always, Roope.

After 3 months, I'm making some commissions but certainly not consistently. I'll continue to plug away.

I totally agree that building up an email list is key. What size of list would you say you need to start seeing returns from it?
RoopeKiuttu Premium
One thing that I've noticed with an email list is that the quantity doesn't matter as much as the quality. I'd guess that you could make more money with an ultra-targeted list of 1k people than a general list of 100k people.

So, I'd say that try to make your email list relevant and targeted. (I also need to improve with this myself.

Thanks, Roope. I have a list of 470 from another site but I think they'd be legitimate prospects for affiliate marketing.
RoopeKiuttu Premium
That sounds like a great start Phil!
