May '20 : $1,145 NEW month RECORD
It's amazing how many things have changed since the last blog I wrote back in January. Back then I had reported that I made a new record high by making $645 in total for that month.
Now it's time to give you a new update on that but first of all let me tell you a few things about me for those that don't know who I am. My name is Stratos and I am in WA for about 2 and a half years from January 2018. I have a niche review website that deals with home cinema equipment and movie reviews. Needless to say that this niche is crazy competitive with some authority websites taking all the top spots in Google. Websites like Cnet, HiFi, FlatpanelsHD, Rtings, trustedreviews, projectorcentral, projectorreviews, AVforums etc are always at the top with huge followings and crazy amount of content.
But as i said before this was my passion and they teach here is WA that is very important to follow a niche we absolutely love. They don't say this by accident. It's because it can take a lot of time for your website to start making any kind of progress and when you will have to do the work without any returns at first it's crusial that you can keep doing it.
I can see this from my progress. For many months from the beginning of summer 2019 until the very end of September I was stuck at 150 users of traffic every day. It was like hitting a wall. But I never gave up or got disappointed. I continued to do the work as normal. And suddenly in early October traffic exploded and reached my peak of 1,800 users in a single day.
Now one thing I should mention is that from when I begun here in WA I already had a 9-5 job and as many others here I was completely dissatisfied with it. Well, I can now say that one month ago they fired me from work and although it has been a bit stressful after being in the same company almost 12 years I can now focus on my online business entirely. I am just mentioning this because you need to understand that in the beginning your website will not make you any income and you need a job to pay the bills until you will start seeing some results.
And it seems that for me results are slowly coming finally with May of 2020 being my best month yet making in total $1,145 which is by far my highest record yet. This amount comes from various sources as you can see below.
Mediavine ----------- $738.47
Amazon US --------- $316.45
Amazon UK --------- $27.39
Amazon canada --- $38.71
Ebay ------------------ $24.83
In order to achieve these numbers I had daily traffic that ranged from 1,200 to 1,400 users. There are also a few orders made in Amazon US that have not yet shipped so I am not counting them into these totals.
Surpassing the $1K mark was an amazing achievement for me and it shows that no matter how competitive your niche is you can still make alot of money out of it. All you have to do is follow the traing here in WA to the letter. No deviations, no experimentation, no shortcuts. I didn't do anything else other that what they teach us here so mark my words when I say that if you really stick to it you will get success sooner or later.
Time to get back to writting now. My next blog will be when I manage to pass the $1,500 mark as this is the next goal I have set for myself and I can see clearly how achievable this is now. It's only a matter of when...not if. I also have been making a few small updates on my website and when I finish my plan is to start two things that from what I read are super important in order to further develop your business. Email marketing and youtube videos.
For all this I want to thank three people. Kyle and Carson for creating such an amazing platform for us and giving us all these amazing tools to make it work and Jay for his totally amazing webinars that are complimenting the WA training and keep updating us with new developments in the field. Without you guys I wouldn't be able to have this kind of success and I have you to thank for that.
So until next time be safe everyone and keep writting!
