June '20 : $1,660 In a single month

Last Update: July 05, 2020

Hello everyone,

It was just last month when I wrote a blog post to analyze how I finally managed, after two and a half years here in WA, to break the $1,000 barrier. This really gave me the motivation I needed after so much time of hard work to finally see the results of all this work.

With that barrier broken my next goal was to break the $1,500 limit and to be honest I would be happy if I would be able to reach that by the end of the year. I told myself that if I could do it until this autumn then I would be crazy happy.

But guess what...I managed to break this barrier in just one month from my previous record. How crazy is this? And not only I just managed to catch my new record but surpass it by a good margin making in total $1,660. Below you can see how this translates from all my sources of income.

Mediavine ----------- $1,221.49
Amazon US --------- $413.89
Amazon UK --------- $4.15
Amazon canada --- N/A
Ebay ------------------ $21.37

From looking at the above I need to point out a few things. First of all my traffic comes mostly from search engines. I have 0 paid traffic. My traffic fluctuates between 1,300 and 1,600 daily users in order to get this income from Mediavine which in fact is a new record for me from the moment I started being in their network.

New record is also for me the commisions I made in Amazon US. For the first time I managed to break the $400 mark so I am happy how this is going also. And the amazing thing is that for June my Amazon Canada account was closed so I didn't manage to get any comissions from there. From the rest of my sources I still managed to add a bit here and there but nothing substantial.

All the above is the result of writting two articles per week. Just two articles! But these two articles were at least 3,000 words each so I am mostly planning on quality content rather than quantity.

Following the training here in WA and Jay's webinars is what brought me to this moment. When I first started all my articles would appear after the 6th page in Google Search at best! Now the last 20 articles I have written, 19 of them are in the first page and only 1 is at the second!!!!! And from these 19 articles that appear in the first page almost half of them appear at position 1 also!!!

Obviously now I have to set new goals to reach and the next one would be to break the $2,000 mark. Once again I will be happy if I can reach that until the end of the year but how things are going I think I will get there far sooner than that. I will make sure to report once I manage to reach that point once again.

I cannot thank enough Kyle and Carson for giving us all the amazing tools here in WA for reaching our goals and Jay for his amazing webinars. Without you guys I wouldn't be able to achieve my financial freedom. It's an amazing feeling to work whenever you want and as much as you want and not having a boss above your head to tell you what to do all the time.

Obviously all these don't come easy, or fast. It needs a lot of hard work, determination and lots and lots of patience to reach this point. Most people don't have what it takes to do all that but for those that do the work and are ready to sacrifise a lot of their time to succeed then reaching this point is within reach.

Have a nice day everyone. See you soon...hopefully!

Congrats, Stratos!!! And holy moly, MV ads are hot 🔥

After the May update I lost about 50% of traffic, I don't even know when I'll be able to reach their minimum requirement, especially since they now increased it to 50K instead of 25K.

I guess I'll have to join the alternative ads platform then for more diversification. (Or be patient and wait till I get to their level.)

I remember you being frustrated about not seeing results for a while and I'm happy to see that you're now reaping the rewards! Good stuff :)

Hey Zarina. They rised their limit to 50K??? Wow I didn't know that to be honest. It will be much harder now for many to catch their minimum requirement. It was already hard before so I can only imagine now.

Mediavine is driving a major chunk of my income right now and at least until I can get my commisions higher ads will be my main source of income.

But yeah i can finally breath a bit easier now that I almost make as much I was in my full time job. Thanks again for all the help and suggestions you provided me the previous months.

I know right?! I’m so disappointed about that, I was very close before (well about 17K sessions) and now it’ll be like starting anew with the Google update and a huge traffic loss. I’ll see if I can try getting there faster with Pinterest.

But yeah, the amount of money you get from ads is VERY impressive! I still wanna try reaching the MV requirement goal. Hopefully it happens this year. Hahah

I know, it does feel great to be making at least $1500/month! And happy to help, Stratos, keep crushing it!!

Good morning Stratos,

That's great news, well done and congratulations!

It looks like you have been working really hard and consistently on your online business. I believe that consistency is the key to success online or any business come to that! Two articles a week isn't that many, maybe the 3000 words have paid off.

It's great that your articles are getting ranked and found on Google. I look forward to reading your blog post on £2000 per month.

Wishing you all the best and even more success.

Thank you Roy. It's been a long two years without any rewards to reach this point. But now I enjoy the ride. Although this doesn't mean less work. I am just starting...

Good morning Stratos,

My apologies for the late reply Stratos, I hope you're doing well.

This is great that you have been able to push through the barrier of hard work and you are now seeing results. I hear you Stratos, there is still more work to do, but at least you're moving forward, big time, which is great news!

Wishing you a great and prosperous day.

Roy
