Can I Make Money in My First Month of Premium Membership?

Last Update: August 16, 2021

The question newbies often ask is can I make money in my first month of premium membership here?

Sadly, the answer to the question is not clear cut. I have a new site which is less than a month old and I've already made my first commissions. I know of multiple people who made money in their first month.

So yes it clearly can be done.

However, there are, as in most things caveats.

I know how to build a website and I have a template build which I can import in less than five minutes. I have prewritten content, so I can queue that content up so that 10 articles each of about 1500 words is published every day for 10 days.

I also know how to thoroughly research the questions people are asking in that niche. More importantly I know how to gauge the competition in that niche. I don't take on challenges where the top two pages in Google are established sites which I can't hope to compete with.

If you are a newbie to Internet marketing it makes it harder. It doesn't mean you can't do it! If you choose a trending niche then the chances are you will make money in your first month whoever you are.

Many years ago I was in a membership site, (not this one) about niches. Everyone was talking about a new niche that was trending. I quickly built a website and a 10,000 word e-book for sale. I can't remember how many sales I got in the first week but it was definitely for on the first day.

Again, it's hard for newbies to do this because they don't have the knowledge or the experience to recognise the trending niche. In looking at Google trends is only one indication.

So what real chance does a newbie have of making money in the first month. Statistically most people take a minimum of three months to earn any money here at Wealthy Affiliates. To be fair more often not that is usually hobby money.

I call it hobby money because you have made a few cells but it is not enough to be a full-time living therefore you have a hobby. You have to start somewhere and hobby monies where the fun starts. Once you have hobby money you can then begin to isolate how you made that sale and you can make your conversion rates better.

Once you've worked out how you got that sale, the real fun part starts because it's just rinse and repeat. Some people learn that within six months, some people haven't made any money in six months and of course some people never make any money at all.

In conclusion, you can make money here. In fact you can make as much money as you want here

Thank you for your honest response to the question. I made a ranking on Google within a month of joining WA, although I have not monetised on it yet, so yes, anything is possible with such an incredible support system.

Good morning Catherine,

Thank you for your blog post, it's an interesting one and a question that I am sure is asked at Wealthy Affiliate many times.

I agree with what you're saying, it normally takes around six months for most people to make money and 18 months to 2 years to go full-time. That's if you're consistent and the majority of people are not, so it will take a lot longer!

I appreciate that you have plenty of experience which makes a huge difference. I remember my first moneymaking website back in 2007 made money on the first day the website was launched. However, my Webmaster had created a back office so I was preloading content before the website went live. I also believe that things were a bit different back then it may not be possible to do the same today.

Have a great day.

Roy

Things were indeed a lot easier in some respects then. I also believe there is still plenty of opportunities now. Unfortunately it's often difficult to convey those opportunities to newbies

I hear you, Catherine, in some ways it may have been easier to make money then. On the other hand, I was paying for a professional to build my sites, whereas now, I can potentially build my own sites.

There are definitely still plenty of opportunities available online, the Internet really has opened up some fantastic ways to make money.

It's a shame that so many newbies don't see the potential of an online business. I remember being really frustrated with the Internet when we had the old fashion dial-up! I hadn't touched a computer until a friend set me up in 2001, I found the whole experience frustrating and almost unusable! Especially with Windows XP on them to reboot several times a day!

But then, broadband arrived and I could immediately see the power of the Internet! The Internet became usable, almost overnight! It was then that I started frantically and enthusiastically starting to look for ways to make money online! It cost me a lot of money buying into far too many scams, but I did learn things, I just learnt the hard way!

All the best.

Yes that's the problem we have to convey our hard earned experience to newbies who understandably can't see the bigger picture.
