How do you define success?
I can still remember my very first dollar that I have made online. I cannot really remember how long it took me because I did not actually care how long it took me. Some people take 3 months while others can take up to 6 months. It is very rare to see someone make their first sale after 6 months.
The same goes for those that are now doing internet marketing full time and I then realized that each person has their own threshold that they need to reach in order to be part of the affiliate marketing success stories. For instance you might get someone that will feel successful if they reach the following goals:
- $500 pm
- $1000 pm
- $2000 pm
- $5000 pm
- $10 000 pm
- $30 000 pm (You actually do get people that are making this much from affiliate marketing)
And the list goes on. Some people take 2 years to make $10 000 while others take 1 year to make $1000. I have also realized that each person is different in how fast they reach their goals because not all of us have the same responsibilities and driving force to succeed.
Wealthy Affiliate success stories
Most of the success stories will come from a training community called Wealthy Affiliate. This is an affiliate marketing training course that will teach you how to build your own affiliate marketing business. Keep in mind that these are not fake testimonials such as that from most of your other make money online products.
I have met some of these people and they are REAL.
1. My success story
Below is one of my success post within Wealthy Affiliate where I earned my very first $2.5. Luckily today is a different story 🙂
2. Colton’s success story
This is a story of a 20 year old guy that worked at a gas station and after 6 months he was able to quit his job. Below is a screenshot of his first $10 000 month which is just amazing.
3. Dom’s success story
Here is a story of Dom that has went from $0 up to $10 000 per month in 3 years. I do not think that a normal job will ever give you such a raise. It took him 18 months to reach the $1000 pm mark. He then reinvested his earnings into his business which catapulted him to $10 000 pm.
4. Heather’s success story
Here is a story of how Heather has made 47 sales in one weekend and that is not bad for her first 3 months at Wealthy Affiliate.

6. Kara’s success story
This is a woman from South Africa that has made her first dollar in just 18 days. That just shows me that everything is possible.

Here is a woman that has also received her first commission check
8. Wendy’s success story

Here Nathan has managed to earn a passive income of $1000 just after 14 months.
10. Taku’s success story
Taku has managed to reach his first $100 day. That is equal to $3000 per month if he manages to get that much on a daily basis.
They all have one thing in common
All of these members have one thing in common. They are all members of Wealthy Affiliate which means that Wealthy Affiliate is just awesome. As you can see there is a whole spectrum of success stories within Wealthy Affiliate of people making their first sales while some are quitting their jobs.
They worked hard for their success
All of them have worked very hard to reached their goals and and as you can see they are all people that started off as newbies that are now earning money on the internet. There is nothing special about them except for the fact that they was willing to work hard to reach their goals
How much can I earn online?
I cannot remember how many times I have heard this question. I always counter it with another question such as:
“How much do you want to earn?“
The fact is that there is really no limit to how much you can earn, but it all depends on how long and how hard you work at it.
Do you want to earn $30 000 per month? Maybe it will take you around 5 years to be very conservative.
Are you the next success story?
You are probably thinking: “There is no way that I can make that much money”. Please do not be so mean to yourself because you DO have what it takes to be successful. I come from South Africa and English is not even my primary language as you may have noticed and now I have the ability to earn a passive income online.
Anyone has the potential to be successful and everyone must to start somewhere.
