It Finally Happened

Last Update: May 02, 2018

That's me almost at the 1 year mark at WA and it has been one hell of a rollercoaster ride!

I've had more ups and downs than I ever expected but one thing is certain - it has been more than worth it and I can't wait to get started on my second year.

I don't often blog here on WA but it's something I plan to do more of in the coming months. I try and focus most of my energy on my website and find that it's so easy to get caught up on the social side of this amazing platform.

I started off a year ago with absolutely no web design experience. I was apprehensive about paying the premium price and just sort of assumed that it was yet another 'get rich quick scheme'.

How wrong was I?!

I'm still a complete newbie, don't get me wrong, but I have learnt so much in the last year. The training here on WA is second to none and it's something I constantly look back on and refer to.

In the last 2 weeks I made my first 2 referrals, ever. This was a whopping £4 on Amazon. :D

My main focus in the last year has been driving organic traffic to my site. Last August I was lucky to get 2 organic hits a day. Now I'm on over 30 a day with a few posts on page 1. I'm confident that this number will only increase which is why I'll be really focusing on sales in the next year.

I've got 45 published posts on my website and will have one more by the time I pay my second year fee. That's one post every 8 days on average which really isn't that much. It's all I've had time for and this coming WA year I really want to increase my posting frequency and work on the layout of my site.

Oh, and not to mention the fact I've barely touched social media for several months. I've got a bit fed up of it to be honest. I KNOW if I could tolerate it more then I'd get even more traffic and this is something I'll be working on.

I don't want to ramble too much. The main point of this post was to highlight April on WA for me. It's my 12th month on the platform and the month I got my first 2 Amazon referrals. :D

That's by posting on average about once a week and I still consider myself an average writer. It's not easy but slowly but surely I'm getting more comfortable on the keyboard.

Peace out and to all of our success!

Wow, Stephen, that's wonderful. You are a great example of sticking to it at your own pace.

I bet you will see lots of traffic and sales in the next year if you continue what you are doing.

I wish you every success! :-)
