My First Sale!

Last Update: October 12, 2018

This feels so good. It's not the amount that counts but the feeling. I feel successful. It feels so good.

I am a slow growing website. I have a ton of demands on my schedule but I put a little bit of time every day into my site. I was starting to think that it just wasn't going to happen for me. My husband and I put a limit on how long we would pay for the membership. If I wasn't successful then we would have to cancel because it is a strain on our budget.

I am so happy to report that I made a 2 sales. I don't know if I am allowed to say who the affilliate is but it was Target. They don't pay out much but I need an affiliate that I trust so that I could link products that I suggest.

The sale was $64 and my commission is $3.

I've also noticed a jump in the number of impressions I am getting in google and pinterest.

Hope you get many more sales so you can keep your online business. I did this when WA first came out, I might have 300 or more in sales but I was in the wrong nitch and I was also paying out to much so I could not keep it up because it was a burdon on my account. But going to make it now like I hope you do also. Good luck.

Congratulations!! While it's not big now, this is your start!! I am so happy for you, this gives me even more inspiration to work harder on my site.
It's stories like this that are going to keep me going, that's for sure!

Thanks for sharing, it makes a difference for people who are unsure about their success.

I like how you mentioned that you worked on your site everyday, people need to understand that this is a process, not just an overnight deal.

I wish you all the best from here on!!

You will be so pleased Shaina, and best wishes as you grow those sales. Make a couple and that one can be repeated, and expanded it seems to be a momentum thing.

It can be hard when we are on a tight budget, wishing you well you will get there I am sure, the system works and you have the proof.

Way to go, Shaina! It doesn't matter how much the sale was, it was a sale. That to me is success, even to a small degree...but now it just has to grow for you. And I am certain as long as you keep plugging away at it, you'll be a steadily growing success! I wish you the best!!
