I'm a Lifestyle Activist and Internet Marketer at KOHA Inc. Lifestyle Improvement and Media Company. I help people with life hacks to improve in relationships, businesses, and person development.

Since I joined WA, I've chosen to breakup my non-niche-specific lifestyle blog into several niche blogs in hopes that the audience will appreciate the brand portfolio better that way. My sites are:

Personal site (author and speaker) - Tiffanydomena.com
My main business site - kohainc.org
Personal Finance: Money Growing Mom - moneygrowingmom.com
Entrepreneurship: How To Entrepreneur - howtoentrepreneur.org [the one I work on daily]
Healthy Living - Nutrition and Fitness: Healthy Living Mom - healthylivingmom.org
Christian Lifestyle and Bible Study - www.kingdomofheavenambassador.com
Emergency Preparedness, Survival Training, and Video Gaming (will be run by my 10-year old) - www.survivalgamer.org

My goal is to create a full time income for myself thru my blogs - replacing my freelance income no later than July 2018 (6 months after joining WA), and I can't wait to give away some great jobs! I imagine that I will keep my hands full (especially before I get help).

I plan to work 40 hours or more per week (in between my kids schedule) since I'm a stay home mom. I work during naps and stay up late because that's how bad I want this.

I do make a full time income from home now thru freelancing but I'm scaling back to take this journey by the reigns. I'd like to convert the majority of my income to affiliate marketing, ad revenue, and digital product sales.

The worse case scenario is that I try, right?

I'd love if you stop by my sites, follow my journey, I'll be posting all my strategies for success in each niche on their niche specific blogs. I'm guessing most people will be interested in how I take my business full time within the next 6 months, and it's likely those strategies will be posted mostly on www.tiffanydomena.com and www.howtoentrepreneur.org.

I look forward to connecting and encouraging one another along the way. To your success,

Tiffany Domena

My original post said I wanted to replace my freelance income within 6 months of joining Wealthy Affiliate and that did not happen. It may be possible for some, but it wasn't possible for me. Instead, I put my best effort forward, made a lot of mistakes (many I didn't realize until people in the community pointed them out) and now, it's been one year and I'm still working towards my full-time income.

I know how some of you feel that have been working at this and feel like you're not getting the exact results you want. The reality here is....

It was my fault.

My biggest mistakes so far were:
Dividing my time on too many sites
Dividing my time between too many offered services (creating content, managing SEO for others, doing web design, doing logos here and there, etc.)
and, Not honing in on a narrow enough niche

I realized affiliate marketing is a career field of its own and if I want it to work, I need to focus on it for now. Otherwise, if I continue to balance marketing as a whole, it'll take me longer to get results in affiliate marketing

This career field is much more complex than I originally gave it credit for. I thought my background (mostly in social media marketing online, digital book publishing, and with basic Wordpress tech skills) was sufficient to translate into SEO, and it wasn't.

Starting about 3-4 months into this journey, I decided to stop dividing my time on all of the various sites, and I started focusing on one. If you visit any of those, you'll notice a basic site structure, but only 10 or less posts (aside from the blog I had before joining here).

In my first year, I was publishing just about daily. In total, I was able to publish nearly 300 posts (when you combine all of the sites) and 250 posts on the one I decided to focus on. I wrote nearly 600,000 words and got up to 3000 pageviews/mo. I know that may not be that exciting for some people, but I want to be transparent about the work it has taken me thus far in the Entrepreneurship niche which is a lifestyle niche.

I was able to make nearly $1000 thru affiliate marketing, but my priorities still clashed quite a bit since I was doing local speaking, live networking, tending to my kids, managing my home, and offering marketing services.

My goal is to build an authority site in a broad lifestyle niche (entrepreneurship) and in my first year, I still didn't realize an exact strategy of how to hone in to create that result (even if I plan to branch out later).

Now things are different.

My husband has agreed that instead of balancing the freelance work, the family, and blogging, that I can work on blogging and the family. That's a big pay cut (a full-time income pay cut).

I'm grateful for his support, and I've been working every day from 8AM-530PM blogging since January 2019. I enjoy being available and present for my family and having my profession. I want both. I want to be impactful helping others using my skills in the community as well as in the home.

Prayerfully, I'll achieve my full-time income from affiliate marketing soon. It's truly my favorite way to make money even though I've made enough money from home freelancing to cover my middle-class lifestyle. I truly prefer affiliate marketing over a service-based business (especially since my husband has one and we have young kids). I'm committed to sticking with affiliate marketing, then adding additional income streams from there.

I'm now at 19 months of working on my website. It's funny how things have evolved since I came here (great decision, by the way!). Now, I haven't paid any attention to those original sites in nearly one year with the exception of the one that's currently bringing me almost a full-time income from affiliate sales--that's howtoentrepreneur.org.

I'm very close to earning 100% of my full-time income from affiliate sales alone. I've been shooting for $5000/mo in sales and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's crazy how website growth goes after the first year. At first, I felt like I was creating content for myself and a few crickets, but now, I'm having lots of people watching and listening to the content I'm creating and it continues to increase.

I started recording case studies of different experiments I'm trying and many of them are working very well. I also started recording updates with my journey. I started these video case studies at 15 months and I plan to do this monthly at least until I'm full-time.

Your goals are totally realistic and when you achieve the first one, it will be just a matter of scaling to reach the second one. The Internet works wonderful when you have your formula for success down which you are going to be getting from the training here at WA.

Once you get this formula down the sky is truly the limit Tiffany! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)

Thank you for sharing your goals. :)

Thank you for the follow Tiffany.
Not sure that I have much you would be interested in following, but, for me you have a lot of content and online experience I could learn from.
Thank you. I will follow you back and I look forward to reading more of your posts.

Michael.

You have value too. Maybe it’s just not online quite yet.

When it's all said and done Tiffany, you have worked hard and to a plan, you have persisted and not been afraid to experiment. You should be very proud of your accomplishments and you are an inspiration to others.
My own journey at WA is constantly changing the longer I'm here. Like you, I'm constantly looking at alternative ways to make money online. Some don't involve blogging. The most important thing is that I'm having fun on the way. I'm not looking for a million dollar income, simply a level of success that will satisfy me personally. Jim

I just wanted to say Thank You for bringing me back to WA. I signed up 3 years ago and life happened, and I totally forgot about it.fast forward to a week and a half ago I was researching Christian Martins program because something just didn't feel right. I came across your website which opened my eyes to A. Not a good fit B. I could do this myself C. WA D. It was time to do something for my own self worth
Again Thank You for putting me on the right path

Hi Tiffany, I just wanted to thank you for sharing your bio. I think that you have a very positive, tenacious - inspirational spirit about yourself that inspires me to keep going on this amazing marathon!

It’s been a challenge for me lately to find some work needed to pay the bills, but I too believe by faith and not by sight, that someday I can turn my business here into a full time income!

I am following you because I like your style.
Blessings to you,
David.

Thanks so much David! If you enjoyed my bio, you'll probably really enjoy my training especially my video case studies where I share the inner workings of my journey: my traffic growth, my income growth, and my learning lessons. Of all of my training, it seems people here enjoy those the most.

Oh my goodness, Tiffany, I felt like I was reading my life through your introduction. Looks like we both have a background in Social Media and Online Marketing as well as many different avenues we could excel in.
The biggest and best thing we have in common, of course, is our faith. I am so happy to hear that your husband was supportive and that you are now able to focus on blogging and the family.
Excited to see where the Lord takes you.

Be Blessed,
Audrey

Awww! Thanks! It's so nice meeting you and amazing we have so much in common! I look forward to getting to know you better. I'd love it if my video case studies could be helpful for you.

I've recorded my growth journey there including my traffic and income to help give you ideas based on my experiences. Are you growing your affiliate income now, or are you more focused on the service side of things? They're both very fun, but for now, I'm focused on affiliate income since it's a little less client-facing while my kids are young.

Hey Tiffany,
Right now I am focusing on the affiliate side of it all. I currently do SEO for my husband's local Home Inspection Business and my best friends' local cabinet refacing business. These two don't take much of my time since I've laid the foundation and it's more in maintaining the rankings mode.

I have a niche affiliate site that I am working diligently on and doing some case studies with that I will be using on a future site that is geared towards Baby Boomers who want to start an online business.

But my site I work on the most right now is my socialmedia4beginners.com site where I offer courses on how to navigate the Social Sites for Beginners but really geared towards Baby Boomers and Seniors. I want to help stamp out loneliness and giving them the tools to be able to understand and navigate the sites so they can connect with family and friends is everything to me.

Of course, these past 7 years have been a journey but I always come back to WA. I love this platform, the people, the support and the whole community vibe. It truly is like home to me.

Where are your video case studies located? Here or on your Entrepreneur site?

Be Blessed,
Audrey

Wow! That is so cool! I love what you've done at socialmedia4beginners! What a great idea and a big help to that audience. You're awesome. Do you monetize there mostly thru affiliate marketing or thru the speaking and how did you get into that?

The case studies are located in my "training" tab here. I'm sure I can learn some things from you. You've been in the industry longer than I have!

Yes, I do monetize the blog posts and will be adding all the courses behind a paywall. Will offer courses individually or the entire course Library at a Membership rate.
I get paid through the affiliate, hands-on training in the homes as well as soon to be the courses and memberships.
Posted a beginner video to Facebook back in 2013 on YouTube, an updated one in 2015 and between those two videos have had almost a million views. Figured there are many people out there that have no clue how to use these sites just for personal use so I looked into it. Turns out, lots of the older generation was having trouble learning it and I help my Dad all the time so I put the courses together.

Have some time today so I'll check out your pieces of training. Looking forward to staying connected and learning from each other.

Be Blessed,
Audrey
