This success story is about Pierre, who joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2016. It shows how he can make an extra $1000 a month with affiliate marketing.
He started affiliate marketing slowly at first, but soon there was a month with $50 of sales. The next month it was $100. Each month after continued to grow!
It took time and was not always easy. It even required some attitude adjustments, viewing small success as a step-up rather than it just taking too long. There were many times he thought about quitting, but he continued to persevere.
When Pierre first started, he was only one month into the training and began to feel very frustrated. He expressed his doubts in a Wealthy Affiliate blog post, and many members came to his support. This reassurance gave him the strength to continue.
After a full year of training on Wealthy Affiliate, Pierre looked back and realized that one year ago he knew nothing about WordPress, Clickbank, Digital Products or Dropshipping. Now, he had learned all those things and was even making money.
He remembered that Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star because his editor felt he lacked imagination and had no good ideas. If Walt could succeed with that kind of negative feedback, so could he.
His helpful attitude towards others in the Wealthy Affiliate community earned him a spot in the top 200. You only get to this position by paying-it-forward and helping others within the community.
At one point, Pierre asked himself why someone would like his website and would want to buy a product from him. His philosophy was, to be honest, and transparent. He believed in attraction marketing, and not making claims he couldn't prove or back up.
One of his main turning points was learning consistency. It was the key to his success. Along with his newfound consistency was setting goals and tracking progress toward them. As the saying goes, you can't have a million-dollar bank account with a $10 work ethic.
He offered more good advice with a saying he learned from one of his mentors, "you can have High production days and Low production days, just don't ever have No production days."
Quitting was never an option for Pierre. It never matters how fast you go. Keep working hard, and good things will come.
