It's Getting Better: $500+ in 2 Days (Amazon Niche Site Progress)

Last Update: October 14, 2018

Hi WA fam,

Just a quick update to inspire you (and to document my own progress with the Amazon site).

As you know, end of October 2017 I decided to start a new Amazon site using "best of" strategy.

Last month (September 2018) I broke my first $500/month (excluding WA commissions).

September 2018 Marks My First $500+ Month

This month?

I made $500+ in 2 days.


Online business works in mysterious ways...

After Google's Birthday update my traffic dropped (I was getting approximately 200 daily visitors instead of the strong 250-300/day).

BUT...

My conversion rate increased AND people bought high-end products related to my niche.

(I mean, between $1500-3000 per product.)

Maybe there were discounts or something... I really don't know.

Now:

Based on the products purchased, it came from 1 first posts I wrote when I started, which is ranked on the first page of Google.

Lesson to be learned here: Even if 1 post out of 50 gets ranked well in Google, there's a high chance you'll make money.

So...

KEEP WRITING!

You never know which post of yours will be a major hit.

And as usual I am attaching this image below...

"Dig" your way to success!

That's one of the things that makes WA great :)

I see you're new to the community, welcome! Also, if you've already finished the main WA training, I highly recommend you check out Dylan's tutorial:

I also wanted to ask, I have done some web seminars, I have my domains all bought, and reg. I am ready to start building content on them. But I would love someone to tell me if there is any better ways to set this part up, than learn n go. I am hoping to have the effect of a kick start, more or less, and just am a bit nervous.

I am confused about "what kind software you find best to work with" question... Basic advice is to follow the WA training, take action and give it time. Everything is in the training (first start with the courses that have actionable tasks, then webinars IMHO).

Congratulations on your results.
I also, someday, come here to share news like yours, but I have to go some way before.
For I agree with what he wrote, it is sometimes a certain mystery that results happen that are not supposed to happen outside the parameters of the one studied by Google, it seems that it is a case of "falling for free than being funny," a very popular saying very well known.

Well, it took me 2 years to realize that I need to get serious about it and 1 year to work on that site consistently from scratch. Don't make the same mistake, follow the WA training, do the work and give it time!

Good work, Zarina!! I started at roughly the same time as you (on a "Dylan style" site. Same types of results, although no "$500 in 2 days" ;)

Just wondering... do you know more about the Google Birthday update you mentioned? I have been wondering about why my stats have gone all wacky in the last few weeks... maybe that's it.

I did some quick Google search about it, basically there was a minor update that hit some of the websites that weren't affected by the Medic update earlier.

I love the best of approach for sure, can't believe I haven't used it before!

Great image! It really gets your point across.

Nice to hear of your success. It gives all of us encouragement.

Do you use just Amazon, or do you have other affiliates? I am curious, as it is nice to think that Amazon might be a pretty profitable affiliate to use.

It's true that you never know which post will make the most impact. I am finding that to be true as well. Interesting.

Thanks for the post.

Thank Fran.

I have 1 article that uses another affiliate program (it's a course), but other than that it's all Amazon. Check out Dylan's post and training to see what approach I used: Yeah online business is a rather interesting venture, especially when you start achieving your milestones!

That's awesome, congrats. And that picture is perfect. We're usually very motivated when starting out, then that enthusiasm tends to drop when we don't see results right away.

I'd rather spend the next 2-4 years building a profitable business than work for someone else for 40 years and have nothing to show for it at the end of it all.

That's the right attitude, Margarette :) The beauty of WA community is that here we have support, even when we are close to giving up.

Too bad I don't have enough energy for WA site but thought I'd get the Amazon site going for now.

Seems like I've made the right choice to focus on Amazon site for now!
