May '20 : $1,145 NEW month RECORD

Last Update: June 01, 2020

Hello everyone,

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!

Stratos

Congratulations! That's amazing! I love to hear the success stories, especially when they're so clear like yours, showing how long you tried and how that correlated with your income. Great job and thanks so much for sharing. I'm inspired to work harder on my sites now. I'm working full time but I've logged on to see if I can pump out another post. Good luck and I look forward to reading your next post!

Thank you. I wrote this because these kind of posts did the same for me when i was beginning a couple of years ago so I wanted to also help others do the same. It's important to help each other.

Thanks for posting Stratos. It is very useful for all those who do not have income or enough patience. I am passionate about my niche, so I hope to achieve my goals one day. I am the first on google on my niche but I have between 20 and 104 visitors daily. I only have 80 posts but I'm glad I'm always on an upward trend. What is your opinion about email marketing, about how many subscribers should you start this strategy? I'm losing a lot because I don't know English and I can't watch Jay, but that's it, I'm moving on. All the best for you. Carmen
PS In my country it is a word (about the job) a shot in the ass, a step forward. So don't worry about being fired.

In all honesty I haven't touched email marketing yet. But I keep hearing that it's super important in order to grow your business after you have gained some traction. So all new to me also but i am planning to dig deep into some training soon about it.

Hi Stratos, it is absolutely fantastic to read your success story! Congratulations on keeping going and especially on your new record month. Thank you for inspiring us to keep going. I am pretty much at the beginning, also working a full time job so it is great to hear what might be down the line in a few years time. it´s a marathon, not a sprint. Thanks for sharing
