My Journey at Wealthy Affiliate Part 19
Seeing Results after all This Time!
When I started to write about my Journey with Wealthy Affiliate it was so people who were interested in getting involved with Affiliate Marketing could follow along with me.
Little did I realize that my journey was going to take me this far. The niche selections I made are at the top of the competition level because they are evergreen niches.
Being never one to shy away from a challenge I felt that my knowledge in helping others in these top niches would eventually one day lead me to the success online that I am searching for.
No, I am not writing this update today for the purpose of saying that I have finally found success but instead to let you know that the progress is coming along nicely.
My tenth month anniversary will be coming up on May 3rd and traffic to my websites is not beginning to roll in. This is a huge step with the competitiveness with my niche selections.
Affiliate Marketing is not for those of you looking for a way to get-rich-quick, if that is what you are looking for then you better start playing the lottery instead of wasting money on those scams “shiny objects” offered.
You have a better chance of winning money than spending it on systems that do not work or are so outdated you are going to spend way more for all the up sales.
Now if you are willing to put in the work (approximately 1 to 2 hours a day), dedication to building an online business, and commit yourself to it for the long haul then you need to take my offer to join me at Wealthy Affiliate.
When you start out you have a hard time believing everything you hear from the community. I was skeptical from day one but knew the training provided was like nothing else I had come across before.
People pay thousands of dollars to attend seminars and listen to the rich talk about how to make money. With Wealthy Affiliate, I joined for FREE which was amazing, but the training is PRICELESS.
Upgrading to the Premium Membership after starting Level 1 in the Online Entrepreneur Certification (OEC) only took me two days to realize this was different from all the scams I had tried. It was real training with real help available.
Besides the cost of Premium Membership is so cheap that it covers everything Wealthy Affiliate has to offer including FREE tools to use to make affiliate marketing even more cost-efficient.
Just for fun when you have a few minutes do a little research to see what hosting would cost you for 50 websites, now do not forget to add all the bells and whistles to that Site Speed, SSL, and Site Protection.
Wealthy Affiliate covers that with membership every month along with all the other benefits. This was when I realized this was going to be where I would learn what I needed to become successful with an online business.
Today April 28th I received my very first organic comment on my website from a person who visited my website reading my content that I have on one of my websites! This took nine months but like I said my niches are highly competitive.
I am so excited that I needed to tell someone! Then thought it was time for an update to my journey why not tell everyone who has been following along.
Many of you might think this is not a big deal, but really it is, just one person who has been on my website has left a comment meaning that others will follow. This is a sign that my content is out there and people are finding it.
Comments on a website are great for SEO letting the search engines know people are reading my content and will then move it up in ranking so even more people will find it.
Once a website has had a chance to mature for six months or longer then you will see trickles of traffic from organic search results provided you did proper keyword research.
This is when I noticed that I was getting a couple of visitors to my websites during the week. Now that has increased to getting a couple of visitors a day to my websites.
Google Analytics provides us the information about how many visitors we are getting to our websites, where our visitors are from in the world, and what pages of our website they are visiting.
Tracking this information is vital because then you can keep track of these pages to keep them updated regularly with content making sure your visitors get valuable information each time they visit.
Using links to other articles within your website is highly recommended so that a visitor can see what else you have to offer which can mean the difference of just a visitor versus a conversion to a sign-up or buyer.
During the first few months, I would try to figure out all the information about Google Analytics without much success. Today I make sure to check them daily knowing which articles I need to improve on with consistency.
Google Search Console is another valuable tool that I use for FREE which shows the number of times visitors have seen a page from my website but did not click on it for a visit. SEO on these at times will need improvement vital information.
Exciting Times Ahead
Many of you might not think that waiting nine months is worth your time nor would you want to work daily building an online business without seeing any results.
What you need to understand is building an online business with a great foundation does take time and work. If you were building a brick and mortar business look at the risk financially you are taking it is huge.
With an online business, you can actually build this in time you are wasting watching YouTube videos or television shows for pleasure. When you could be building a business that will create a passive income stream for years to come.
If I could say that I have one regret in my life it would be that I did not find Wealthy Affiliate until nine months ago! I keep thinking if only I had found this back in 2005 when they started, where I could be today?
Are you in the 1% of people who can become an affiliate marketer? You could be in the other 99% who have tried and quit or just given up because it did not produce immediate results.
