I've Made My First Commission!

Last Update: May 19, 2017

83 Days after writing my first post, I've made a sale! It's only $21.63 commission but I feel like I've won the lottery. Not first division, but you get what I mean.

I'm sure plenty of people have said it before, but I'll say it again: patience pays off.

Rock on.

Hi Shirley
Still going strong? Would love an update.

Well...not exactly. I've had a couple of months off, dealing with life etc. Surprisingly, I've had a scattering of sales during that time, despite having almost no traffic. I guess that's encouraging...

Congratulations, a few weeks late. I didn't see this. That's awesome news. If you don't mind my asking, what type of product was it?!?

It was a supplement from an affiliate program not Amazon. Bigger commission, so I'm pretty happy about that :)

It was two and one-half years before I got my first sale, and very soon after, hit the jackpot when everything timed out just right. Wait till that happens and you suddenly get a bunch of sales!

Yes! I can't wait, how exciting!

Think you could pm me a link to your page that you sold from? I'm curious what format worked for you.

Congratulations!
While for you it might be relatively small when compaired to millionaires we have around those "only $21.63", for me, they mean a lot! I've just joined the WA community a few days ago and I'm still a long work ahead to earn anything yet, but I'll keep working! You're an inspiration, I hope to be able to make such a comission in the next 83 days too! But for that I must go back to working on my website.

Good job, I wish us both success!
Reply
ShirleyNot Premium
Thank you!

Yes, you should definitely get back to work on your site! Put in a solid effort and you'll be making commissions in no time, too.
