The content you create can pay you dividends for YEARS to come!
One thing I love about building an online business that I know that all the work you do builds on top of each other.
The work you have done yesterday will help you today.
Let me give you 3 simple examples from my own life.
I wrote a review on my site language learning site in July 2017.
Soon after that I abandoned that language learning site and started focusing my main website.
That review didn't make me any money for probably half a year.
But then it started bringing me some small income every now and then...
Now that one article has made me +$350 and that amount adds up even though I haven't updated that article even once. (Probably I should have, lol!)
Then there was another article that I wrote in 2017. Again, no income for several months from that article.
Then I got the first commission...
And now it has brought me +$1,500 in commissions.
Then in 2018 I spent 1 day to write a comprehensive review and create a video of one company.
That made me $0 commissions in 2018 (maybe some ad income).
I haven't update the article and a video at all...
Then in 2019 they brought me +$700 in commissions (and hopefully another $700 passive income in 2020).
Moral of the Story
In ALL of those 3 examples I didn't earn ANY commissions from those articles for several months.
I didn't see any results for my work regasrding those articles.
Someone could have said that I did that work in vain.
Well... I just kept those 3 articles online and now they've generated me +$2,000 in total.
And they will probably keep on generating me commissions for years to come.
Now of course $2,000 is not a lot of money. But the point is this:
When building your online business, the work you do today will pay you dividends for months and years to come.
Think about that...
Millions of $$$ Lost?
I have seen A LOT of people closing their websites before they earned any money from them.
They've built a nice website, written helpful content and several reviews.
And then they didn't get immediate results.
They get disappointed. No commissions for several months.
They close their website and forget this "online business" thing.
Now I just imagine...
What if those people just would have kept their websites online?
How much money in total all those people have missed just because they closed their websites?
That must be a huge number if you add all those websites (and opportunities) that they've closed in total.
Just think about it... Those 3 articles on my site made me +$2,000. Then add all the other articles...
Don't quit my friend.
You may be closer than you think!
Now let me add the picture that our friend Zarina always loves to share :) It works well with this topic.
