4 Figures in 1 Year. Finally! (Quick Update)

Last Update: October 28, 2019

Hi WA fam,

This is a quick update on my Amazon niche site.

(I posted a detailed income report on my actual website.)

Anyway...

On October 29, 2018 my Amazon site that I've been working on turned 1 year old.

I was using the "best of" strategy thanks to Dylan's posts/training (@dylanrieger).

  • Traffic: dropped to 200-250 after Google Birthday Update
  • Amazon clicks: between 35-75
  • # of posts: 48

You might be wondering:

How much I made in the last few months?

May 2018: $172

June 2018: $178

July 2018: $270

August 2018: $325

Sep 2018: $522

Oct 2018: $1585 (Thanks to some real high end sales in my niche.)

Gives you perspective, doesn't it?


It feels SOOOOO good to finally be making 4 figures and it took me "only" a year!

Patience, work and proper knowledge on SEO pay off.

Advice for newbies:

- Follow the training.

- Connect with people, ask questions.

- Do the work and be PATIENT. It's a business and it takes some time to take off.

Dig your way to success!


Note:

I will likely stop posting monthly income reports, unless I hit some new big milestones to motivate fellow WA'ers.

QUESTION:

Let me know if you think whether 1 year is too long/little to be making $1500+?

We all want quick results but I've come to realize that 1 year isn't that long, especially if the first 6 months a new website is in the "Sandbox Period".

And I can only imagine what income I would've made if I had more energy/time to work on my website.

Anyway, let me know your thoughts in the comments and I wish you success on your journey!

- Zarina

P.S.

To clarify:

I've been here at WA for 3 years but my website that brought me 4 figures is 1 y/o. So, when I started my Amazon site I already had the foundation.

I know! I can't wait to see my holiday sales lol. People say it increases drastically but I don't want to assume (you know what they say about expectations lol).

Congrats, Zarina! I think we have to go at our own pace. Some of us have more responsibilities than others. So we have to keep plugging away at it with the time we do have. Therein lies the challenge in generating money faster. I think you're doing well. A business takes time to build and some niches might generate traffic and income faster than others. Way to go! :)
