First $150 month

Last Update: April 27, 2017

Just wanted to share my progress for Month #8. I'm not shy to share any earnings here and hope it gives the newer members an idea of how patient you have to be.

In 8 months my total earnings is around $650. This last month (with still a few days to go) has made me $150 which I hope to scale up in the coming months.

My traffic has tailed off slightly but this is down to losing some Google mark-up from my WP Review plugin, I'm pretty sure of that. Currently around 220 visitors / day average.

This month's earnings comprise:

  • IPTV subscriptions - $89
  • VPN subscriptions - $11
  • Amazon commissions - $52

I am am not yet halfway to where I expect to be earning decent money. 18 months is my goal to be earning $1000 / month. I still have 10 months to go so I have a lot of work ahead of me if I am to reach that goal.

My short term goal is to create a landing page to increase my email list and continue writing 5 posts / week. I currently have 121 published posts.

I hope this gives you an idea of what to expect when starting out.

Best,

Craig.

Why the need /CODB for IPTV? Just curious.

This is what Kyle has been saying. I've been waiting for my next Google Adsense check and to me, it's like waiting for the blue moon, taking too long.. for just $100. Now, looking at your success story here, Kyle's advice of going for the affiliate marketing dollars makes sense.

Are these commissions from a single website? Or, from multiple websites?

These are from a single website. I managed to earn $570 in my 13th month but I am struggling to really break out from this. My first $1000 month seems like a long way off.

Congratulations Craig!!!!!! If you don't mind me asking, what is IPTV and VPN?
Reply
CraigUKTV Premium
Hi Rebekah, IPTV is Internet Protocol TV (like Netflix, Kodi, etc) and VPN is Virtual Private Network (to protect your identity online, is one reason for using one). Thx

Thanks Louisa. If it wasn't for people sharing their posts when I was starting out, it would've been difficult to know the expectations. Thanks to others sharing I know roughly how long it can take.
