May 2017 Income Report and Plans

May-Income-Report-OnlineMoneyzThis is my 27th income report for this blog.

Every month I publish a post like this showing:

  • how much money I made
  • what I worked on
  • and what my plans are for the future.

These reports will help me keep myself accountable, and hopefully I can help you figure out how you can make money online.

What I Did in May

I spent the beginning of May working lightly and trying to rest, but then I read two amazing books that completely changed my mindset. (More on this later.)

Online I:

  • Published 33k words on WHQ. The goal here is to increase the amount of informational content on the site and get over the Fred issues I’ve been having.
    • I also added some backlinks, and my VA found 50+ websites for guest posts. WHQ has enough content by now, and I need high quality links to get the site to earning $$$$ every month. It is in a very high competition niche though, so that’ll take more time.
  • Published two posts on my blog with a couple more saved as drafts. It’s crazy how much you can do when you’re not a full time student!
  • Published my third income report roundup!
  • Started selling my website on EmpireFlippers. I’ll write a blog post about the entire process later, but they’ve been great so far and I’m positive my site will sell in June.
  • Added 5k to EGE. This is the site in the low-competition niche post. I plan on growing this site out once I sell BAB, but I put it on pause for now because I might have to include this site in the sale and there’s no point in growing it right now if I have to sell it off before it makes any money.

Offline I:

  • Read two amazing books that shifted my mindset. Both are by the same author and have some overlap, but one is from 2011 and one was just published.
    • The Millionare Fastlane – I read this book a year ago, but it didn’t have an impact on me. I re-read it at the beginning of May and understood everything in it. I could finally relate to what MJ (the author) was talking about.
    • Unscripted – Got this book on launch day and finished it on the same day. This book is much longer than the first one, but it covers much more info also. It’s harsh, it will make you rethink your life choices up to this point, but if you think about his message you’ll understand the power in this book.
  • Read through 3 copywriting books, took notes, and thought about the information in the book. I will be re-reading these in June or July to truly get the info into my head.

What I Did in April

After a busy March on the online front, April was pretty relaxed.

This relaxation was because of my college exams so in reality I wasn’t relaxed at all.

However even with all the studying I still managed to accomplish some online stuff!

Online I:

  • Started the process of selling my highest income Amazon affiliate site.
  • Published my second income report roundup!
  • Added 16k words to WHQ with the hopes of getting past my Fred troubles.
  • Tried out Doug’s KGR technique. Some of the content is already ranking although it’s not in the top 30 yet.

Offline I:

  • Studied hard, took 3 final exams, and moved back to Louisiana for the summer.

March 2017 Income Report and Plans

March-Income-ReportThis is my 25th income report for this blog.

Every month I publish a post like this showing:

  • how much money I made
  • what I worked on
  • and what my plans are for the future.

These reports will help me keep myself accountable, and hopefully I can help you figure out how you can make money online.

What I Did in March

The problems from February spilled over into March as I tried to put out fires everywhere and figure out how not to lose all of my income.

I spent more money than usual in an attempt to rank some of my other websites which doesn’t reflect in my income report just yet. (Hopefully it will be noticeable soon.)

Online I:

  • Added 15,000 words of content to WHQ with the hopes of getting my rankings back after Fred.
  • Published my first ever income report roundup! I loved reading through everyone’s progress in the past month and I think this is something I will do every month no matter how popular it is.
  • Researched and discovered potential very low competition keywords to add to WHQ and help it rank.

Offline I:

  • Enjoyed a couple warm weather days, but worked for the rest of the time.

Goals:

I didn’t have a goals section last month, but I did accomplish most of what I planned on doing.

I kept my great writer, published less posts than I would’ve liked on WHQ (15k instead of 25k), and did some basic SEO on WHQ.

February 2017 Income Report and Plans

February-Income-ReportThis is my 24th income report for this blog.

Every month I publish a post like this showing:

  • how much money I made
  • what I worked on
  • and what my plans are for the future.

These reports will help me keep myself accountable, and hopefully I can help you figure out how you can make money online.

What I Did in February/Beginning of March

February was surprisingly productive, but also full of surprised and disappointment.

There’s a reason for why I’m writing this post in March. I’ve had to put out fires and focus on my businesses so I had no time for this.

Online I:

  • Continued teaching my VA keyword research and showed her how to create Web 2.0 backlinks.
  • Got hit by the mysterious Fred update and the Amazon affiliate commission changes nearly at the same time.
  • Completely restructured WHQ and “silo”d the content with the hopes that it’ll help with getting back my rankings.
  • Tested 6 writers on Upwork and kept one of them. So far he’s written 10,000 words of informational content and I plan on adding at least 25k words per month to WHQ for the next 3 months. I think this should help me with the Fred issues, but more on that later.

Offline I:

  • Focused on working on college courses and online work. Didn’t rest that much.

Goals:

I planned on being productive in January, and while I didn’t do everything I wanted to, I also accomplished other things I didn’t even think about so it all evens out in the end. 😉

  • Publish two posts on OnlineMoneyz: FAILEDI didn’t do either of these. 🙁
    • “A year in review” post covering how much money I made and spent during the year, how I could’ve made more money and how much my income grew.
    • Post 1 of my secret project that I won’t be telling you about until it’s up.
  • Show my VA how to use Upwork and possibly hire a couple writers for my new project. SORTA FAILED– I showed her how to create Web 2.0s and hired writers by myself so it’s not that much of an issue.
  • Edit and publish 3 drafts on WHQSUCCEEDED– Published and edited a total of 10 posts.

January 2017 Income Report and Plans

January-Income-ReportThis is my 23rd income report for this blog.

Every month I publish a post like this showing:

  • how much money I made
  • what I worked on
  • and what my plans are for the future.

These reports will help me keep myself accountable, and hopefully I can help you figure out how you can make money online.

What I Did in January

Most of January was quite unproductive as I burnt myself out last semester and needed to take a breather.

However, I got back into it near the end of the month and actually got some stuff done that I had on my to-do list for a while.

Online I:

  • Taught my VA the basics of keyword research and SEO. Eventually I hope to get her to a point where she can do keyword research for me and possibly oversee other writers under her.
  • Updated the Content Samurai review post.

Offline I:

  • Spend a lot of time playing video games, watching Netflix, and resting.
  • Continued doing college stuff.
  • Had my first float tank experience- It was awesome! It’s like meditation, but better.

Goals:

I planned on being productive in January, and while I didn’t do everything I wanted to, I also accomplished other things I didn’t even think about so it all evens out in the end. 😉

  • Publish two posts on OnlineMoneyz: FAILEDNo posts as always. What else did you expect? 🙁
    • “A year in review” post covering how much money I made and spent during the year, how I could’ve made more money, how I grew, and all other interesting stuff like that. 😉
    • Post 1 of my secret project that I won’t be telling you about until it’s up. 😉
  • Start teaching my VA Pinterest magic to drive traffic to WHQ. FAILED– I didn’t teach her Pinterest, and instead started teaching her keyword research.
  • Create 4 quick and easy silos on WHQ myself. I could assign this to my VA, but I can do it quicker and I need her to expand to working on other stuff. FAILEDI only created one silo as I underestimated the amount of time it would take me to make a “top x” post as it seems I’m out of practice.
