My very first affiliate sales payout from my new and small blog

September 11, 2017





I never thought that it would be possible earning while staying at home.
Going back, I used to be working a 9-5 job and company benefit was awesome. My first born started going to school and I failed most of the time to attend school activities that needed my presence. There were times when my kids are sick and they needed me to take care of them but I needed to leave them to someone else care. Awful feeling and the worst form of guilt! I know working moms feel the same. Good thing that I stay at home with my kids now and enjoying my small blog.

The idea of starting a blog did not come overnight. I was one of the so many people who rely on the internet for answers to my daily struggles. How to save money? How to be organized? How to budget? Parenting tips. I am a sucker of information. I did some online job like answering a survey and promoting some products, that's when I realized I needed a website.



Blogging had no manual. Though there are a lot of courses available to take. It was not easy. Sleepless nights, working so hard and doing your own thing just following what other awesome bloggers are teaching you to do. No boss to tell you what to do next to make the job done. Here, you are already working so hard but your income is still not guaranteed, at least that is when you are just starting out.

This post contains an affiliate link. It means when you purchase from this blog I get a small commission that is only enough to keep this blog active. Rest assured that I only recommend products and services that I use or I know that can bring value to you.

Copy-cat the method and strategy of many bloggers 
who made an affiliate sales using Pinterest in 24 hours or less. 


Struggling to get people visit your website? 
Here is the answer to the number one problem of many bloggers.  
Increase your page views and grow your blog. 





I got my very first affiliate sales payout and I want more. A whopping $40 is what I received on my PayPal account. $40 for a week of less effort after I implemented the step by step method of this eBook 'How to make your first affiliate sale in 24 hours'. Not a lot of money, but this proved that I can earn while staying at home with my kids.

I am not going to lie. I did not make an affiliate sale in 24 hours. After I purchased the book I was so excited to make a sale that I just read it and do what it said. I was frustrated when I did not get any affiliate sales from the products that I was promoting. In my frustration, I set the book aside. Oh boy, that was my biggest mistake. I stopped when I did not get what I wanted.

In my heart, I knew that I did not make a lot of effort following the book's instructions. I wanted to make an affiliate sale. I had the book on how to make an affiliate sale, people who bought the same book made a sale. I knew that I was missing something. I downloaded the eBook again and read it carefully making sure that I was taking note of important details. I realized that I was just so lazy the first time thinking I already knew some of the things in there. That day I did not have to wait for 24 hours. The magic happened a few hours after I carefully followed the book’s instructions. I got a sale! Imagine how I felt when I got my very first sale. Three more sales followed the same week. I wasted three weeks that I could have gotten a sale earlier. That was my first success story in affiliate marketing.

What I loved more about this book was it answered my problem about the best Pinterest strategy to use without working so hard promoting. Boardbooster and Tailwind were a great help for me to automate my pinning. In this book, Elise will teach you exactly her pinning strategy and the fundamental of affiliate marketing.

This is the eBook that helped me make my first affiliate sale using Pinterest. And by using the strategy of this book I still continue making sales from a different affiliate program.

What I learned from my blogging journey is consistency is a key to success. Writing a blog post, sending a newsletter, and social media promotion can be time-consuming. We also have a life outside of blogging. If you don't have a blogging schedule chances are you will be missing some of your blogging tasks that can be vital to your blog's success. Check out the Blogging planner pack.
