Jul'18 Results: $4,373! It's Amazing How Fast Income Can Rise!
Hello my friends,
I'm happy to report that I am sharing my July 2018 results after all because it's a pretty big jump and, from my last post, it sounded like the community enjoys my posts so I will continue sharing what I can that will give you some insights to what I do.
I must say that I will be sharing a lot more once I have hit my Vegas goal which is getting even closer these days!
I will have an analysis of my entire timeline and offer lots of data crunching which I really enjoy being an accountant at heart.
The header image I used for this post is very true how this business works. With each post you write, you are putting down seeds for your site to grow.
Results For July 2018:
My income for July really jumped this month because I had a record FIVE YEARLY membership upgrades that happened in the month!
Okay, before you ask, I calculate all my numbers in the month they occur so it doesn't matter when things get paid out, so my numbers represent transactions that are earned in the month they occured.
Payouts can be manipulated for the WA affiliate program in the sense that you can control when you cash out those credits so you can really make one month look better than another.
This really matters when you earn so many credits that you're earning a few hundred a month from just people setting up their accounts and buying domains.
Also, when the yearly commissions do payout after 30 day hold, it doesn't make sense for me to say I earned that in Sep (since I'll be paid in Sep for these five upgrades).
Instead, for each month, my totals include all sales, recurring, credits, yearly memberships earned in the month.
Even without the Five yearly upgrades, my July still increased $700 from June.
I had been getting yearly upgrades every month since March 2018, 1 to 2 a month, but 5 in July was incredible to see.
This just shows what could happen when you start having over 100 active premiums on your list! :) I have about 140 at the moment.
I haven't given any WA screenshots (because they never captured everything I've earned) but today, I'll add my July payment:
And here's a screenshot of my ads from Mediavine:
I started that Mediavine program last week of May, and they don't payout til 66 days after the month's earnings so my first payment is still to come in a few days here, then I'll start getting monthly payments.
You could only apply to this ad network when you have reached 25,000 sessions in your last 30 days which I did in May.
All in all, I haven't done anything much different in July to have this income increase, although my conversion has increased by about 3.8% this month so that helped a lot!
My focus in July was spreading the word about my coaching services so both here and on my website, I drive that home in every review post I wrote in July as well as editing the messages I send out to my referrals when they join and when they set up their profile accounts.
Nobody has to offer coaching services as this is just an affiliate program and all I need to do is drive people here but helping others succeed only pays you back big time so this is a no-brainer for me to help which I've always done anyway but now I'm telling people about my help (making it more of a big deal) and that has helped with conversions.
This is the first month that my traffic has not increased in the double digits, instead it's only increased about 7.5% over June:
Users: 40,463 (1,300 Avg per day), highest point for July 1,869/day.
Email List: 8,350
Still under 2,000 users a day and no new records for per day traffic.
I have major dips as you can see as the week goes towards the weekend. Saturdays are my lowest traffic points, guess people use Saturdays as their main relax day and not worried about making money online. Lol
Thursdays and Fridays usually decrease towards Saturdays as well, but sometimes they could surprise me. My best days for traffic are Sunday - Wed.
How Many Posts Do I Have?
Yes I've hit 500 posts!!!
Okay, that didn't hit 500 til this morning when my post for today published, so technically I had 499 in July. Lol
WHY DO I HAVE SO MANY POSTS?
Keywords in posts = traffic
Traffic = Visitors
Visitors = Money
This is all I use for traffic, I don't pay a single penny for any type of advertising or promotions.
All the visitors I get and HOW I get referrals are all from the traffic I get from Google. I don't even know if I get traffic from Yahoo or Bing, cuz I don't check basically. Lol
Most of the things I write are product reviews specifically for making money.
I'm going to see if I could slow down on my writing and concentrate on doing things that will increase my conversions even more.
I also feel like I'm not getting enough referrals for the traffic I'm having, so again, I think I need to concentrate on converting these visitors.
Although, my traffic didn't increase that much more than June so that could be why my referrals didn't jump that much for July.
Still, I was able to get 673 referrals in July, an all time high. :)
I hope to have another update before August is over... *fingers crossed*!!
I hope you all enjoyed this post and I hope you guys had an awesome July as well!
