Here I will list success stories from Real People That have joined Wealthy Affiliate. Some have already quit there day job, This Can Be You, But you have to want to work online, We can help you get started all for FREE.
I got online today to check by account balance for my checking account and seen a $51.00 deposit. I had to take a double take. Yep, you got it, It is was commission from an affiliate program I am associated it.
Now $51.00 doesn’t sound like a lot but It is, and I am going to tell you why. This commission came from a pet product company that I promote on my cat website. What makes this so cool is that I have actually put that website on the back burner for about 2 or 3 months!
I haven’t posted no new content, I haven’t even marketed or promoted this site for way too long. Now I am not proud of this but I want you to see that affiliate marketing works! Having a website with quality content works!
Can you imagine the commissions I could be making if I wouldn’t have put this website on the back burner? Okay I got to stop before I shoot myself. Just kidding!
You can bet this website will be coming off that back burner and the promotions will begin again at full speed.
For those of you who have doubts. For those of you who are waiting, for what seems like eternity, to receive a commission, IT CAN HAPPEN, IT WILL HAPPEN, just don’t do what I did and put your passion, your dream on the back burner!
Hello WA Family
How are you today?
Today, I just received an affiliate commission of $90.00 from one of the affiliate products that I promoted!!
Oh my God!! I feel so good and excited…. Yay!! :))
To add to that “excitement”, I have 2 good news too:-
1) My eldest daughter’s this month pay is S$6,800 (From her full-time job’s pay and also part-time projects commissions)
And so, she gave some great “pocket money” to both my hubby and myself. :))
2) Last month, my eldest son also received his first month’s pay of S$3,000+ and he also gave us some “pocket money“. :))
As such, I am super happy today; and I feel very blessed too … and the fact that I can share my joy with my dear friends here at WA is just wonderful… :))
December 2017 will be my two year anniversary at WA and this is my first blog!! So, this is long overdue. I wanted to make sure I absorbed and applied all the knowledge I gained before sharing my experience. It’s taken nearly two years, but the hard work has paid off.
One of the reasons I also wanted to write this was because I have lost count this past week of how many times I have read and heard about people wanting to give up because things just weren’t moving fast enough.
My Earnings (Dec 2015 – Oct 2017)
I probably should have done this right from the start, but I went back two years and put all my online earnings onto a spreadsheet.
Thanks to the help of WA, I have made $31,752.85 in online earnings.
I Almost Gave Up
I remember almost giving up at the start of 2016. I decided to give it one more try and that’s when I made my first $22. I remember feeling a great sense of relief and then knew that it was definitely possible to make money online. Things just started climbing from there.
I know how discouraging it can be working online for a few months and you have yet to make a single dollar. I have also seen many people ALMOST give up, but they didn’t, and they have gone on to make thousands of dollars a month. Persistence and patience is key!
Dom Wells Never Gave Up
I just want to share quickly another great example about persistence and not giving up. I work as a full-time manager from home, managing about 150 writers and editors for Human Proof Designs. Some of you might know my boss Dom Wells who is also a member here at WA. In 2014, he founded his website.
He went from $0 to $10k per month in 3 years. In 2016, Human Proof Designs did about $680,000 in sales.
I think you get the picture now, but let me just give you one more example:
Dom wanted to sell his shaving website because he was doing a lot of work on it and making about one sale a month. So, he listed it on Flippa and it sold for $250. However, the buyer disappeared, so the deal couldn’t be completed. Anyway, Dom kept the site and started seeing some positive results. It ended up making some nice commissions and he ended up selling it for over $25,000.
What is Stopping You from Succeeding?
Most people aren’t conscious of the fact that they are limiting their own outcomes based on what they’re holding in their mind. It is easy to feel empowered and to change your mindset by reminding yourself that whatever you would like to achieve, is possible!
- If I gave up 6 months after joining WA, would I have made $31,752.85? NO
- If Dom gave up, would he have gone from $0 to $10,000 in 3 years? NO
- If Dom gave up, would Human Proof Designs have made $680,000 in 2016? NO
- If Dom gave up and decided to find another buyer for his shaving website, would he have made $25,000? NO
My point is to never give up no matter how many months or years you have been trying. If you have to work day and night on your websites, then so be it. It would be sad to see someone giving up and missing out on opportunities.
Wishing you all success for the remainder of 2017.
I still can’t quite believe it! Today, I logged into one of my affiliate programs to pleasantly discover that I had made my first sale! The sale was in the amount of over $600 and my commission was $43 AUD! Yippeee! So happy and just wanted to share!
So immediately after posting my depressed monologue last night I knew I had to do something productive. Taking Paul’s advice I got on Facebook and joined a bunch of cat groups (my niche) and answered questions relevant to my posts. I just let people know what worked for me and my cats to answer their questions about health and behavior problems. I posted links to my site for them to get more information. I made 5 sales! Imagine that! I had not made a sale in 29 days!
So I helped people and their pets and made 5 sales. It wasn’t even difficult though it was a bit time consuming. This gives me great encouragement though! If I keep doing things like this I can build my traffic back up again.
Thanks Paul for the tip! Thank you to everyone for your great encouragement and support! I really appreciate it.
I also just took the Black Friday special and signed up for the year.
I got the proof I most desperately needed today – I made 2 sales!!
It couldn’t have happened at a better time because earlier this afternoon I told a friend that I was beginning to lose motivation. The reason?
Deep down I didn’t think all the effort I was putting into my site was worth it, or that I would generate any sort of income whatsoever. I was on the verge of quitting.
On my first day here at WA, I posted my goals on one of the boards;
“I’d love to make £1000 per month but I’d be happy earning anything, even £10 per month, just to know that it works…”
I am now 7 weeks into my journey and I have gone from knowing absolutely nothing about websites, the internet, social networks or marketing, to having a business, a website, which is already ranking on page 1 of Google and getting it’s first sales.. I was completely clueless about any of this, but I stuck at it, I followed the training and I hoped for the best.
Now, let’s go back to where I lost my motivation..
Well, I was feeling a little down about my site tonight, so I decided to get started on another one. (I know, we all advise against it but I was feeling a little bummed out!) So, I was having trouble thinking of a new niche and decided to turn to Amazon for inspiration.
It was by chance that I accidentally logged into my Amazon Associates account, and I was just about to close the tab when it caught my eye – 2 sales, dated yesterday!
Needless to say I practically sprinted to the phone to call my mother. She never believed I would make a penny from doing this – she ate her words and, quite rightly, she changed her tune. “Stick at it, keep it up. Well done!”
Now, I’m a Mummy’s girl and I always take her advice. But I had such a good feeling about WA that I chose to ignore her, and I’m so glad I did.
I just earned my “anything” and now that I know it works, I’ve got my motivation back!
So my advice is, believe in yourself and ignore those who don’t. It will happen, I’m proof! I’m not a good writer and I still don’t know as much as I really should, but it’s working! And I did it all by myself 😀
Good luck everyone!!
