Wealthy Affiliate Works! My site has 66 sales for 2 months work!

Last Update: February 03, 2020

Good morning fellow freedom seekers!

I have often read posts questioning whether affiliate marketing actually works, even this morning I read a blog asking whether it was even possible to get sales in the first few months or even year of a new website.

So before I started updating and creating new content on my old website I thought I would take a look at my Amazon associates account to see how well my website has done so far.

My website was started in May 2019 and I wrote in the first two months with lots of enthusiasm. I decided to focus on a Niche site and wrote 28 blogs combining, articles, reviews and best of's. Then due to personal and financial circumstances I had to stop and take a break.

I was incredibly surprised to see that my humble little site has made 66 sales and has had over 1400 clicks on my links!. Now to some on here that may seem small fry, however this was achieved with about 8-10 weeks work, the remainder of the time it has been left to simmer.

My first two sales came on 21st August, so that took about three months (two months of affiliating to Amazon) to see the first sale, by the end of August I was up to eleven sales and got my approval from Amazon!. All I did was follow the wonderful training here on Wealthy Affiliate after starting with zero knowledge or experience.

It is just so wonderful to see something working away, without my constant attention, isn't that what we are all seeking? a passive income. OK I admit it is not so passive in the beginning it takes a lot of very hard work and dedication, but it is possible.

I am very excited for 2020, as if this humble website can give me those results with minimal effort, what can it do with my full attention, passion and time! I look forward to reporting the results.

So if you are new, please keep the faith, follow the training, I promise it works. Obviously it is important to point out different niche's take different times and are easier or harder to convert to sales. Also, if it is not working for you, get feedback, often some small changes can reap huge benefits.

I owe much gratitude for my success however to the training I followed here by @dylanreiger. His training has motivated me to turn my website into a six figure earner this year! Check his training out here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/how-to-create-a-6-f...

I wish you all the best and much success in 2020! Time to get writing

Much Love

Sara

I am so happy for you Sara! You are doing great!! You really dug in and got off to a fast start. Congratulations.

I have always wanted to try Dylan's method but have not gotten around to it. The regular and side business are keeping me very busy. I am pleased at how my Amazon sales are doing as well. I got 7 yesterday!

If you follow Dylan's method I am sure you will be making much more this year.

Congratulations! That is very inspiring and amazing.

I didn't make any sales that fast, but I have to admit I just recently read Dylan's training and now I have started to make Best of posts like he suggests. We'll see what happens with his advice!

Did you check on your Amazon account which articles on your website generated the sales? Were they the Best of posts? I'm just interested because I'm experimenting with Best of posts now.

Sara congratulations, this is good new to here, because I am also a newbie, but not so new, I felt very old, and my exact thinking is when is this going to show some result,
But from my own conscience I know lots of work have to be done, and done in the right manner, I see you had some help, maybe that that's the help I need too.
Congrats again Sara. Blessing all the way to the top.

Hey Elizabeth do not be too hard on yourself. In the beginning I spent many days frustrated or crying. I am not particularly technical minded so found some of the training hard going. But with perseverance and the wonderful community here, I made it through to get to today, where I am reaping the rewards.

Take the training and build your website in a steady pace, ask questions often (if you need to), and write about subjects you love and are passionate about. What makes you jump out of bed wanting to write about it? This will make the whole process so much easier and enjoyable.

There is no 'one way'. Different people and sites and Niches, succeed or don't succeed at different paces, so go on your own journey. If I can be of any help, please do not hesitate to contact me. Wishing you much success

Much Love
Sara

Bless you loving heart, this is one of the most encouraging word I can here, especially from some one who understand my cry. I will definitely keep you on my contact, for that support.

I know WA community are very helpful, and there for you when needed, or go straight to the Author for that helping hand. but your, success just touched me extra today.

I know where I was and where I am now, and if it was not for WA training, this would not happen, because I have tried so many other affiliate marketing, spend what I could not afford, but jump, on what seems to be the answer, but was not.
To your continuing success, and thanks for the support.

I know how you feel and where you are. I had to use food money to pay my WA fee. I would cut back. But if you believe enough, the way will come!

This community supported me in a way I could never have imagined, and it has opened up a whole new possibility.

Keep doing the training, writing and ask for help if you need it. We are all here for you : )

Awesome blog. But yeah it's the training and the support from the community.

And what better timing for most of us who are in this position to get a foothold or have taken a small quiet break and a breather to come back refreshed and have the confidence to keep at it.

This will probably help me get a blog article or two done and then keep going
