My Highest Residual Income Day
The majority came from sales through a certain merchant I link to via the commission junction (cj.com) affiliate network. While the sales were in the same general niche, they came from two avenues: an eHow article I'd written, and a niche website that was only a few months old at the time.
Here's the breakdown:
(cj.com sale commissions via eHow article: $164.44
cj.com sale commissions via family/home niche website: $575.47)
cj.com total: $739.91
Total one-day earnings: $869.07
Just to make that number seem even crazier, a year of those earnings every. single. day. would mean a $317,000+ annual income! Wow.
Ironically, I'm earning less than $1,500 now per month, as my September earnings demonstrate, but having this crazy-high earnings day to look back on reminds me of what's possible, as well as how much potential there is in my home/family niche blog.(By the way, I got the inspiration for that blog during my first month in the Wealthy Affiliate online training program).
The thing about residual income is that it can be fickle, and follow a feast/ famine trajectory at times. But when I look at earnings over a time frame of weeks and months, it evens out to a more predictable pattern. The key is not to expect single-day highs but to work strategically for long-term growth and income. And that's what I'm doing now.
Do you have a earnings mark or other indicator that you look back on as a reminder that you're doing something right? I'd love to hear about it!
