Newbies Pay Attention! $5,195.20 Affiliate Check for June: Thanks WA!
Last Update: Jun 20, 2018
When I was new to Wealthy Affiliate, like most newbies, I didn't understand the entire process of building a simple niche site or an authoritative blog.
Like most new internet marketers, I focused on the money as well. We've all heard it here at WA not to do this - but it's tough to do so.
Especially if you've got a family, monthly obligations, limited time, or you are conditioned to a monthly paycheck, etc.
Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth It?
Many times we also want to know if Wealthy Affiliate is a good investment in our time and money.
I know I did when I first started out.
Is the education worth it? Is the time we spend researching keywords and targeting blog posts going to make the big money in the long run?
We'll, I'm proof that it does. Like so many other successful WA members, I'm here to tell you what Wealthy Affiliate teaches works.
June's Looking to be Shy of 8K
My goal this year is to be consistently at 10K/month. Last month I hit $6,454 for May and this month's looking great thanks to my latest commission.
Check it out...
There's a 45-day wait on this commission with the 30 day money back guarantee provided by the affiliate. So these commissions originated in April were paid out in June.
This is the PayPal Statement...
What Wealthy Affiliate Teaches Works!
I know that's why you're here, because what WA teaches works great.
So here's the thing to do...
Take the education seriously and do every class and every task to the best of your ability.
Learn the entire process!
Learn the strong foundation that WA teaches of content marketing first to build your foundation.
Later you can add email marketing and eCommerce, etc. if you like.
After going through the entire WA program (Entrepreneurial or Bootcamp) you should understand how to target keywords, rank content, help your niche out which will result in commissions.
The only thing to do from there is...
Scale Your Business!
Once you know the gist of how to run your online business, the next step is to mass produce it.
I could only produce 6 - 12 posts per month when I was working full time at my online business the first 9 months of taking WA classes.
With writers and a team, I can easily produce 20 - 30 quality posts per month working 10 hours per week.
The more I build my site, the more authority it has, the faster the content ranks, the more traffic it brings and that equals...
I hope you get the picture. Learn the process, nail it down, repeat.
Once your site starts making money, don't go spend it, re-invest in your site/online business.
Maybe that's a professional theme, writers, ppc campaigns, etc., but continue to build and scale that business to the point where you're happy with it.
I hope this helps those that are new or those that have some experience but aren't seeing the results the'd like to see yet.
Don't give up!
I think the biggest thing I've seen year after year is that too many new marketers give up too soon.
Many times they're so close to success but they give up due to one reason or another.
Don't make the same mistake! It's totally worth it in the long run!
Hang in there, never look back and your will, will be done!
Todd, this is great and thanks for posting!

Que le vaya bien, amigo!

Thanks for this very motivational blog post. These are the kind of post that get me fired up and want to push myself harder each day to get to the point where you are.
Do you have websites both promoting WA and in another niche? Also how long on average did it take before you were making a regular income from them?
Thanks again, and good luck as you push to that 10k a month point. :)
Thanks for the feedback. I'm hoping to put out something like a 4 year report on my experience this month.
Hi Todd, I am so glad I came across your post today, so thanks very much for sharing. I would like to be in a similar position to yourself regarding earning, so i must persevere even though it is difficult to find the time at the moment, Best Alan

Hi Todd, thanks for a great post. I am one of the "newbies", and I will definitely be following your advice. It is often hard not to be discouraged when there is no money coming in, but I will keep at it and I truly believe that hard work pays off!
