July 2018 Results - $500+!

Last Update: August 02, 2018

Hey there!

I've been thinking about it a lot and decided to start sharing my results. Even though I have my fears, I found it more benefitial to the growth of my business while I was sharing.

It kept me accountable to my progress and goals but also inspired others to give this business a try. I'm still learning how to do this and trying to figure out what I should share.

I have my affililate site, I'm going to develop my make money online site and I have been doing some self publishing too which I'm thinking I will probably drop.

So here's my results for July. I started making money from this site in December 2017 technically?

It was $10. I didn't make anything in January and in February and March it made about 30 bucks each.

Right now traffic is just shy of 2k visitors/month and conversion can be anywhere from 4% - 10%. Seems like when I overshare on social media it drops.

I'm also experimenting with a couple other things to see how they effect both conversion and bounce rate.

July Results

Gosh I'm so nervous but its not even anything spectacular. People post about making thousands and I'm here, nervous about posting a couple hundred dollars.

Anyways, for July I made an approximate total of $576.79. I say approximate because I'm not sure how KENP calculates the total page reads but also there's no way to know what the foreign exchange rates will be on sales either.


You can also see that for June I made $328.72.

I have to admit that I'm dissappointed in my June and July results. May was when I stopped sharing my results on my social media, in particular FB.

June I had other projects going on and also got distracted with other ideas. July was sort of the same unsteadiness.

My goal is to publish 2 articles per week. I was barely making 1 per week.

The site is 15 months old as of July and getting about 2k visitors per month.

I am pretty excited about getting nearly 100 visitors per day. I'm happy to know that the info I write is helping people.

Oh yeah, I write all my content and I don't use any ads. So I'm my own solo train right now, lol.

My original money goal is back in place. I never believed I could do it but I did every time. That is to triple my earnings for each month.

In other words, for August my goal is to make $1500 from my affiliate site. That sounds so impossible but like I said before, every other time did too and if I don't feel like its ridiculous then I won't push as hard.

Well, that's human psychology really. So make big goals that you don't think you can make just not too too big where it discourages you.

Everything in steps :)

I think that's about all I have to say for now. If you have any questions please feel free to ask them in the comments below.

I have a training that I'll be posting later on too so keep an eye out for that! :)

Talk to you later,

Marlinda

Well Done You.
It has taken you a wee while but now you know that with focus, dedication and commitment the system and training works and hopefully other newer members will take some encouragement from your success.
Onwards and upwards to more of that success.
Have a great day.

You can see that you are starting to get consistent income and that must be exciting. I look forward to that day just so it will push me a little harder to work harder if that makes sense. Anyway congratulations on your break through of starting to consistently earn income.

Marlinda you have a very decent conversion rate, that's fantastic. You're also having a good flow of visitors, so as long as you keep your content going and not overdo it on the monetization part, you'll be just fine. I'm glad you're testing different options. You are becoming quite an entrepreneur and I congratulate you for that.

Thanks Eugenio! I appreciate your support and advice. I like the point you made about over monetization. Yes, I have to always remind myself of that as well.

Hope you have a good week and all the best to you also :)

Congratulations Marlinda and thanks for sharing your progress, it's so motivating.

I don't think it's impossible that you can make $1500 a month very soon.
Perhaps not in August, because August is a very quiet month, everybody is enjoying the sun, Lol.

I would say you can expect to reach this number probably in October, from October it's the High Shopping Season. Many sellers are waiting for this season.

Wish you the best.

Hey Calvin!

Thanks for your support and comment. You know, you make a good point that I never thought about.

But luckily for me, the members in my niche will still be mainly indoors ;) I do believe that with the holidays sales will increase.

My conversion rates for July were definitely low at some points too. I never thought about this and that's probably why.

Thanks for sharing and I feel a lot better about this. I have a tendency to blame myself when things go wrong but it could just be the market.

Whatever the case may be, we'll see in August! ;)

Summer is the quietest season of the year, however, sellers with experience can keep growing their sales.

I guess it's the good time to write more contents, so when the time comes you will have more pages that can get good ranking and will convert more.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I think it's how it works.
Don't hesitate to share your results.

Hey Rusty!

Thanks for your support and sharing your goals with me. I hope that you continue to grow your business and meet your goals as well.

If you want to make a hundred aim for much bigger. You know the saying, shoot for the starts so if you miss you might land on the moon?

There is some truth to this in that if you aim big, even if you don't make it you'll still land on something great.

Keep up the good work and follow my posts. I'll share as much as I can to help and know that hard work pays off :)

Hey Marlinda,
Im new on here and haven't made a single dime yet so your story is very inspiring to me. Keep up the good work and don't get to down on your self about your take home for the month just keep pushing on a little bit harder than you did before each time and you'll be fine love. Any profit at this point is major gain the way I see it as you where a little under the weather for the first two months. So an almost 600 gain is flipping awesome and if you get down and dirty and post twice a week like you want you'll be making that triple gain of 1500 in no time this month. HAng in there your doing fine ;-)

Interesting...I have bee on this for lets say a year now. I lost momentum somewhere on the way like three month now after i saw my efforts are not bearing fruits i expected. I can not say where i have been doing wrong though. But to my experience affiliate marketing ain`t that easy. One has to develope consistency and thats needs alot of time. If one do it parallel with a permanent job like my situation, it becomes challenging.

Hey Abdallah!

I also lost momentum from when I first started. Go back through the beginner's training to refresh your mind about the steps you need to take.

Then go through some of the live training about SEO and ranking type of stuff.

It is difficult but doable! :) Keep up the good work and don't give up.

Take care,
Marlinda

People may be sharing their success stories with thousands of dollars per month income but honestly we all have our own journey and we move at our own pace.

You should definitely be proud of yourself!!

I created my amazon site in November 2017 and July has only earned me less than $300 (which almost twice more than June results though).

But I take it easy, first of all, technology niche websites are tougher, plus I am happy with every progress I have even if it's a bit slower by some standards.

Congrats on your achievements, Marlinda!

Earning $500+ with only 2K visitors in the month, that's fantastic!!

Could you imagine if you can blog more and not be so distracted?!

Your blog is already making good money for what it has, so now you just have to keep adding the way you've been adding content because you are applying the training right!

Could you give me an idea what kind of niche it is? You don't have to tell me exactly if you don't want to.

Keep it up and you'll be at 4 digits pretty quickly!
