The key to truly understanding online business is understanding where revenue comes from. The short answer, is it comes from TRAFFIC.

So the better question one should be asking is "How long before I start getting consistent traffic?"

Building traffic takes good techniques put into consistent practice. Traffic begins as a trickle, then grows into a stream, and then finally blossoms into a river. And when it does come, that river is a strong one and the time you took building your business patiently will pay off more than you can imagine.

And with consistent traffic comes real revenue.

The great thing to note is that the training you get here at Wealthy Affiliate gives you all the tools necessary to build that precious traffic. It is just a matter of putting them into practice. Google doesn't reward new sites overnight. Google wants to see if you're in this for the long haul. Are you ready to show Google that you're determined to succeed?

Let's take inventory now as we head to the last page and confirm exactly why Wealthy Affiliate sets us up for success...

Very insightful and, yes, I see these questions over and over every day. The other one I see a lot is "I created my site and did some pages, but why don't I have any traffic yet? Thanks for addressing!

Blessings,
Debby

It takes me back to 2 years ago when I joined. I know sometimes those questions are asked because people have been scammed before and they are unsure but, still, they can be irritating to see over and over and over!

I think it's a natural question and the main reason I wanted to create this training was to ease some of those asking it so they realize they don't have to put themselves on such a harsh timeline. The training they get here will deliver in time. They just need to be driven and have patience.

Well you already know my issue, PATIENCE. I've not been patient with traditional business either. I've got timelines for a lot of things. Sometimes, timelines make me work harder to achieve my goal. Most times my timelines are unrealistic to others but I work my ass off to achieve what I want. Sometimes I met it, other times I don't so I set another timeline.

I work for a spa and started my own business after graduating from Massage school in 2012. I got no clients really my first year, second year I ran Living Social specials just to get my name out there. I called this sweat equity because I made nothing per client. LS made the most of it. Maintained some of them but life got in the way, divorces, lost jobs and moving. So again I was at scratch one. My point, I never gave up, still have my office, still work full time at the spa. Was named Best MT in 2015 in my area. I've got referred clients coming in. My problem is that I work way too much now. But I never gave up.

I hate failure, it pisses me off to the umpteenth level. No matter how frustrated I get or how much crap I talk I will press on. I've given up in the pass because I didn't want to do the work. I know what it takes just didn't want to do it. Now I don't have a choice. I can't continue at the pace I'm at.

Took a break for a few days from here. Got my piss and vinegar back, lets get it done. Working on bringing that traffic I need.

Welcome back.

You're very determined, that's easy to see. And just like with your massage business, you mentioned not getting any real clients your first year, and the second year not really making a profit from your clients. You worked through those times because you understood it's a process. In traditional business this is more understood. Can you imagine being able to start a traditional business from scratch for less than $50/month. That's unheard of. Yet so many come to online business and complain about that figure, and then they want to make thousands their first month.

It's to those that this training is pointed at to help them focus on just how good we got it at WA so it's a little easier to stay patient and driven.

$50 a month I could spend in a couple days from eating out or a week of DD's or Starbucks coffee and a sandwich the size of a golf-ball. At one point I couldn't afford that myself. Been there done that but WA is freaking awesome and so worth the $50 a month. For the community alone. Other places ask for a lot more money and don't give you half of what WA offers.

Stay patient and driven, even if you have to bitch about it. That's my way of dealing with my lack of patience. Venting is good for the soul.

Yes, yes, yes. I just had some of these inquiries..."Can I make money in the first month?" etc etc.

I think it's the most common question new members ask. I see it all the time in the live chat. Before they even take a look at the training they'll ask "so how much are you guys making?" and you understand where they're coming from but you also know they don't understand all the dynamics of online business yet.

Hopefully this training can be shared with those who ask those questions so they get a little better understanding of just how awesome this platform is.
