A year at Wealthy affiliate
So here I am after nearly a year writing endless posts in the hope that one day I would hit that illustrious $10,000 per month mark and guess what this week……I didn’t!
It Aint easy to write a blog
Ya see there are two problems with this whole blog business. Number 1 is that it ain’t that easy and number 2 is..if you are anything like me you will get to the point where you have written perhaps 30 or so posts and you have perhaps just 5 people per week visiting your site..you put in loads of work too..I do SEO research and try and create what I feel are good educational posts that perhaps people will want to read..the problem is you invest so much time in it and you get not a lot back…When I say not a lot I actually mean no income…that’s right folks its took me a year and so far I’ve made nothing…or have I?
Time at Wealthy Affiliate.
I spent the first 3 months of my membership at wealthy affiliate going over the lessons and trying to learn the ins and outs of affiliate marketing and creating a website and I was in a great place, felt like I was going to conquer the world and perhaps make a few quid along the way. I was writing posts every week and building my site up. I was doing the correct research on keywords and was really into it..no i hadn’t seen any traffic but I was confident that at some point that was all going to change…but at month 4 I kind of gave up..I didn’t give up as such I kind of felt that my time spent writing blog content could perhaps be better spent on other pursuits…like building the websites.
Building WordPress websites for clients
I soon found that my actual interest was in building the websites and designing logos and marketing material. I managed to get a few clients who wanted a new WordPress website built, and with the new found knowledge from Wealthy Affiliate I was able to build there sites in WordPress and to a good standard…so i did make some money from my time at wealthy affiliate. I’m still paying the $40 per month to be a member and every so often i do write a post or two but not enough to say im a successful affiliate marketer..but I will say that i do now have a blog which I am kind of proud of..i have lots of posts on here and I do believe they are informative and interesting to readers..that’s why I am still with wealthy affiliate..sometimes I will get the urge to write just one more post in the hope it gets ranked and perhaps pull in a few pennies..if it does great..if it doesn’t ..I’m not worried because I’m enjoying the journey and feel like I have learnt a lot from Wealthy Affiliate that has helped me in my career..ive even started a new business from scratch and was able to build the website I wanted and drive local traffic to it. I use Wealthy affiliate to host my sites and ive always got a big community of people to fall back on should i get into any technical difficulties.
So No i havnt made $10,000 per month from wealthy affiliate YET! ha ha..you never know if I keep writing i may one day get someone to click a useful link for me to get paid commision on but for now im happy to just keep my blog going and write from time to time.
