2 Weeks of Wealthy Affiliate and I've Made My First Ever Sale! UNBELIEVABLY HAPPY!

Last Update: March 16, 2017

I have read all of the posts here about people making their first sale - well now it's my turn. :)

My site is all about church growth and leadership so I really didn't expect my first sale to be a Black & Decker Juicer! I guess that's Amazon for you! Someone clicked on a music album I did a review on and ended up buying a juicer!

I couldn't believe it last night - I made $1.20 = £1 only but I have never been so excited! It means it works, it means I'm on the right track and it means I keep moving forward. So happy!!

Very inspiring! I'm having a look at your website now. I started just ten days ago and... wait... I clicked on the link and this is what I got:

This site can’t be reached

[your link] server DNS address could not be found.

Thanks Catherine! It's good to meet you :)

I should post more often lol, it's over 2 years since I posted this and I can say with this site alone I'm making over $1000 a month.

I just updated link in the post, never realised before! It should be good now.

Here's another project I've been quietly working on recently... http://themakemoneyonlineblog.com/

Let me know if I can help in any way :)

So happy for you. And no matter how big or small the profit is. The feeling is priceless isnt it. Its like all the hard work really is paying off;)

Yes exactly - and it means I'm doing the right thing - from now on keep improving the site, keep posting - it's a numbers game! Thanks Maricel :)

So as a tip. Its clear that continuous posting and update is key to success? .. Your welcome. Keep me posted on further success.

yes I think so, keep targeting those keywords. Google is long term - it takes weeks/months to be found on google but keep targeting keywords - you're building a foundation.

Post at least once daily - it builds momentum, you'll go through it course 3 or 4 but as it takes a whiel for google your main traffic will be social media: diggit, google+, pinterest, twitter so writing a post a day gives you something new to update and more traffic :)

I'm only getting between 30-50 visits a day at the minute but thats consistent and hoping to increase it over time. Any questions just message me - i know i sound like an expert but ive just gone through the training which takes you step by step and learned as I go!

Happy Easter! He has risen! :)

Good job! Very interesting, I made some money yesterday the same way. Someone clicked on a product on my site and ended buying something else.
By the way, this is one cheap juicer. It doesn't look so cheap thou. :)

The juicer was $30ish i think but im just saying what my commission was. Congrats to you too! :)

Congratulations! First sale is always the best. I have a Christian jewelry site and someone came through there and bought a leather jacket. That was a couple of years ago. Anyways, best wishes to you and keep up the good work.

Thanks Sherion! Yes I love the randomness of it! Have you heard of aStore on amazon? I put on on my site yesterday and linked it directly from my menu - just experimenting and learning as I go but we'll see :) You too, every blessing! Happy Easter! He has risen! :)
