Broke My First $100 In A Single Day (June Update)
Some of you are aware that in November 2017 I started a new Amazon niche website, using a specific approach.
It was more of a case study site (to see if the "best of" approach works) but now I work on it full-time and even hired guys with WA commissions to help me out with content.
In early May I blogged about having my biggest sale, which brought me $30+ in commissions:
This month I expected to write a post on how I broke my first $100 month but life had its own plans :) and I am not complaining!
Yesterday I broke my first $100 (minus 28 cents) in a single day.
And I sure do expect it to grow (read: "snowball").
With outsourcing, I am aiming to publish twice a week and have enough "info" posts too, so that I don't have all affiliate content.
Anyway, I know that there are a lot of new members that doubt Wealthy Affiliate's training - we've all been there.
I can just share one advice:
DO. THE. TRAINING!
There's no shortcut around it.
It took me a while to finally accept my websites as businesses and actually follow the training. Don't make the same mistake. Don't get distracted by other shiny objects.
Just do the training and plug away to make it happen.
Mini-Rant/Another Advice to You
Also, don't let your friends or even family interfere with your progress.
They won't believe it until they see "real" money, and by real I mean hundreds if not thousands of dollars per month.
This is where we ALL can relate.
Heck, my parents still try to make me join the government office type of job even though I've made my first sale (from my first website) a while ago.
Their response is that $100, or $200 or even $500 is not enough to make a decent living, especially in a city like Toronto.
Even explaining them that at the beginning of the year I had like 40 cents made from the Amazon website (compared to the $200 month now) doesn't make them realize the potential of having an online business.
I mean, $0.40 vs $200 in 5 months. Am I the only one who sees the potential?
So I've come to realize that some people are entreprenerial-minded, and some have the "secure office work" type of mentality.
And there is nothing wrong with that. We are who we are.
We all should realize that at the end of the day, it's our life and we should pursue what we believe in.
It still kinda upsets me but, thank God, now I am a point in life where I am confident in what I am doing now, despite other people's disbelief.
And you should build that "stamina" too! Don't try to argue or explain to those who don't believe in it, these arguments will likely just upset you too.
Better save your energy for your website business.
When you show them a $1000 or $5000 check, that's when they will believe in what you're doing.
Let me say this again, basically just stay shut and work on your business to make it HAPPEN.
Dig your way to success!
