Wealthy Affiliate Paid for my LAMBORGHINI !
UPDATE: Now includes the promised Graph!
Yep you read that right, There is no Click Bait here! Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate I was able to get my hands on my ultimate dream car. Paid for entirely by the profits from my Niche Website. It's a REAL Lamborghini too not a model or anything...Not Just any Lamborghini either, a 612BHP Lamborghini Huracan. And yes that is the ACTUAL car in the picture above.
I guess you are all thinking, "so how did you do it?"
Let me explain.
First up, an apology, I said this wasn't click bait, and while it's not completely click bait, and everything I have said is 100% true, it's not quite as it seems.
Unfortunately I don't actually OWN the Car in question :(
I did however HIRE it for a 24 hour period. And used the profits from my travel website to pay for the hire costs. Whats more it wasn't a jolly, it was a bonefide investement.
So this post is a little explanation of life as a "travel blogger" and what you can expect from running a niche website within WA and an update on my sites progress. Oh and maybe a few snaps from our trip!
I run a Travel Blog and the very concept of the blog is to go places and experience everything to let potential visitors what a place is like. Our latest trip was to VEGAS and one of the things on offer is Exotic Car Rentals. So to explain this fully I had to experience it...I know, The hardships We Travel Bloggers have to endure!
Not only did I re-invest profits to pay for this, I even used the site as a bit of leaverage to get a discount. I am not big enough to expect things for free just yet but I offered a few of the companies some extensive exposure in exchange for a discount, and one comapny was more than happy to accept! I wanted 20-30% off, he offered 50%. Exotic Car Rental is expensive and 50% is A LOT of money.
So I took the car for a day and enjoyed the experice of lamborghini ownership for a full day. before having to give it back :( in that time I filmed, photographed, and documented the entire experience which will now be blogged about and plastered all over youtube.
The Car?...it was utterly phenominal, I have always loved fast Cars and owned quite a few, but nothing comes close to the visceral and extreme noise and acceleration of this thing. It really was one of the best experiences of my life!
The Trip itself was also pretty mindblowing. We rampaged around Las Vegas largly for free, or at least partly comped and even the things we did neeed to pay for were all factired into the website and the money will eventually be recouped and hopfully several times over.
We Saw Shows, Dined like kings (Unlimited Lobster, Steak and Champagne?) Saw Shows, Hit the Clubs, Gambled, Soared down the strip in a chopper, and stayed in some fantastic hotel rooms!
We then hit the open road and visited:
Zion National Park - a Stunning Canyon system with incredible scenery and amazing hikes such as Angels Landing a 2000ft rock outcrop that sees you walking 1ft wide rock ledges with 2000ft drops ever side (will make a great Youtube Vid)
Bryce Cnayon National park - Sunrise and Sunset at this gorgous geologial formation.
Page Arizona - Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon and Horsehoe bend
Grand Canyon National Park - Sunset at the World Famous Grand Canyon
Route 66 - Driving the most famous road in the world into Los Angeles, Desert, Dust Devils, Ghost Towns and Gun Fights.
Disneyland - Happiest Place on EARTH! (maybe)
San Diego - Finally a chill out, and Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Speedboats, Cruises Sea Lions and Scuba Diving!
A truly unforgettable trip and basically fully funded by our Website. So I am actaully able to call this "Work" ...lol
Site Progress Update
Overall the Site is doing incredible. After the winter slump things picked up in April and through May have soared to new heights. Traffic has trippled since the start of the year
I have included a month by month graph of traffic and earnings over the last 18months which is the period where traffic and profits began to grow. The 12 months before this were basically zero traffic
Hopefully this will help all those stuck in that still not making money stage, wavering on quiting, thinking this is all a scam. I was really close after 12months of nothing and when Black Friday Renewal came around, I was very near to pulling the plug. I just listened to that voice in my head that just said, keep going, trust the system.
Slowly and surely things just got better and better.
My Travel Site is a regualar Niche Website, using nothing but the standard WA training. almost all my traffic is organic and very high quality. This converts very well. It is 2 1/2 years old atm.
I am still only really getting good returns from 3/4 of the products I promote and there is the potential for so much more than I am seeing atm. If all of my products were performing the same as my best product I would be seeing 10x the profit! So there is still room for alot more growth. And then there is a million more products out there to promote.
I am still doing no advertising either. I intend to use Media vine, once I meet the traffic reuirements of which I am 75% of the way there so this is another potential income stream.
Overall it's very very exciting and I can't wait to see what happen over the coming peak months in the Travel sector.
In Short WA Rocks!
