I was going over my earnings for December and overall I’m pretty happy about it. It could have been better but I didn’t get nearly enough work done on my websites to earn as much as I could have. After talking to some of my friends they were pretty disappointed in their earnings overall.
Most of them are just moving on and continuing with their regular projects and planning to do better next December.
So, here’s the thing. If you want to earn more next December, don’t put off getting started until right before. You can be working on and growing our websites now. If you started a site promoting Amazon products for Christmas, there is no reason to ditch it and not work on it again until later in the year.
If get started now and keep working on them throughout the year you won’t need to scramble later. If you don’t have a website up yet promoting physical products you’ve got plenty of time to start building it up.
It takes time to build a website, get content on it, have traffic to it, and get the attention of the search engines. You can only do so much in that short time spawn.
It can be frustrating if you have a site that is solely about Christmas like my geeky Christmas website, but if you have a site about toys or electronics you’ll still be able to earn commissions during the year when it’s not the winter shopping season.
Even if you don’t work on your Christmas stuff daily, whether it be an Amazon site or a 3rd party site, take some time even once a week to make a little bit of progress and keep your site updated
Happy new years and good luck!
