About Stevelaird
Joined April 2009
I just recently came back to Wealthy Affiliate. Its been quite a journey to get to this place in my ecommerce career. My niche is autographed sports memorabilia. I had a hard time finding a niche I was comfortable with and wasn't having much fun. I put everything down for about a year. Then I realized my love is sports and sports history. Immediately I autographed sports memorabilia came to mind. I put together an authority site and got to work marketing the site. What is unique about my site is I offer unique high value items for the serious sports memorabilia collector.

I've learned that marketing is everything. You can have a great website but if you don't have a marketing plan you will have just that, a great looking website. I have also learned that you must discipline yourself and remain faithful to your plan. Iv'e learned that you continually have to pick yourself up and re-evaluate when things aren't going as planned. But what I have learned most of all that you can NEVER, NEVER, NEVER QUIT. Quitting is easy winning takes stamina, courage, and guts.

My niche is very competitive but I am doing what I love. After a year and half of being in business my traffic and sales have picked up. I am ranking well for three different keywords and I work very closely with my affiliate manager which is a big plus. I guess what I am really trying to say is success is a journey and the victories are sweet
Stevelaird's Goals 3
Money Goals
I have hesitated to do this since I came to WA with a website already in place. I don't have a mini-site. I have an authority site which takes longer to see results. My niche is highly competitive (autographed sports memorabilia) but it is what I love, sports and sports history. It took me a little over a year and a half to see my first check. It was $242.39 from Commission Junction. I was estatic! I saw my balance and had to do a double take. the next month it was around $49.00, then $64.00

Its kind have been like that for the last six months. I noticed in my product posts I didn't have any calls to action so I am taking care of that as we speak. I still have a ways to go to reach my goals but I am learning that I have to be flexible and be faithful every day to continue working. The day that you stop will put you behind from reaching your goals.

Two weeks ago my affiliate manager said something to me that got me very excited. She said, "in three years we think your going to be one of our top affiliates." But she put a caveat with that, If you remain faithful every day to do what you need to do.

My understanding is that mini-sites take less time to make money, but if its me i would go through all of the certification courses, then hit the classroom portion (tutorials, videos, etc.)
and get involved in the webinars. Its all right here.

This is no different than running any business. It takes time, patience, discipline, and a dogged determination to succeed, and also a desire to face challenges head on without becoming discouraged. Challenges are opportunities to succeed.

Galeinton' I hope this helps. again, I have an authority site, but the discipline and the work is the same.

Thank you. Everything helps.
I appreciate your taking the time to let me know.
I have many more questions, like what is an authority site? -but I'll finish the training first, they may be covered and answered.
