May-Income-Report-Roundup

May 2017 Income Report Roundup

Can you really make money online even if you’re not in the “make money online by making money online” niche? (Sheesh, what a mouthful!)

I love income reports so I decided to read through the reports of bloggers from various niches and condense them all in this post for your reading pleasure.

My goal with this post is to show you that it’s really possible to make money online through blogging and hopefully inspire you to start your own blog.

This list shows the evolution of blogs from less than $100 per month to more than $100,000 per month.

Let’s get right into it!

#1. MakingSenseOfCents.com – $104,170.48 (-17,396.52)

MakingSenseofCents-MichelleMichelle’s income decreased a bit in May, but it wasn’t anything terrible major.

Most of her time was spent on future plans for Making Sense of Cents and had a coaching call with Ruth Soukup from Livingwellspendingless to learn about her 25 employee business.

She learned a lot from the call, and it made her think a lot about her business and how she runs it.

Next month she plans on do more live interviews, create another product to sell, and continue learning and improving.

#2. SoOverThis.com – $84,350 (-13,514)

Justin’s income decreased a bit from last month, but he’s not worried.

Even though his income is smaller, he was able to increase his earnings from his personal sites making him less dependent on advertising services that he provides to other people.

He plans on acquiring more websites, increasing his customer base, and start a full-fledged digital marketing agency.

#3. AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com – $51,574.21 (-1,956.68)

AuthorityWebsiteIncome-JonHaverJon was worried that May would be a tough month because of its rough start, but a strong end of the month compensated for the rough start.

While his affiliate website strategy is yielding lower earnings per visitor than normal, but the higher than expected earnings from ContentRefined made up for it.

His new strategy for growing traffic is doing wonders, but his team is struggling with converting those visitors into money.

Next month he plans on getting more customers for ContentRefined that’s not related to his blog and addressing the earnings per visitors issues for his affiliate sites.

April-Income-Report-Roundup-2017

April 2017 Income Report Roundup

April-Income-Report-Roundup-2017Can you really make money online even if you’re not in the “make money online by making money online” niche? (Sheesh, what a mouthful!)

I love income reports so I decided to read through the reports of bloggers from various niches and condense them all in this post for your reading pleasure.

My goal with this post is to show you that it’s really possible to make money online through blogging and hopefully inspire you to start your own blog.

This list shows the evolution of blogs from less than $100 per month to more than $100,000 per month.

Let’s get right into it!

#1. MakingSenseOfCents.com – $121,567 (+2,688)

MakingSenseofCents-MichelleMichelle’s income increased a bit in April even though she worked hard on maintaining a solid work-life balance and only worked a couple hours each day.

She says it’s weird to finally have her work-life balance under control and that she feels like she’s forgetting things that she should be doing because she’s working less each day.

Her goals for May are the same as always: continue learning, promote her business better, and get at least 3 months ahead on posts for her blog.

#2. SoOverThis.com – $97,864 (+43,954)

Last month Justin doubled his income, and he almost repeated that crazy feat again this month!

Most of his income comes from his client sites, but even if you look just at the income he gets from his personal sites it’s a solid 12k!

His plans are same as always: reach 100+ sites by the end of the year and increase his customer base to help him become financially independent.

#3. AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com – $49,617.53 (-10,448.08)

AuthorityWebsiteIncome-JonHaverApril was busy for Jon as he worked on balancing immediate pay-off with long-term growth.

ContentRefined is growing at an incredible pace, his money site earnings are holding steady, and he even took a trip to Florida with his wife and kids without them crying on the plane!

However, not everything was perfect as one of his FBA businesses had the product pulled from Amazon, he was unable to respond to as many emails as he would’ve liked, and he wasn’t as productive during his vacation as he hoped.

He plans on putting his summer interns to work by promoting his Authority Website site and developing systems to help drive his business forward.

March 2017 Income Report Roundup

Let’s get right into it!

#1. MakingSenseOfCents.com – $118,879 (-27, 619.77)

MakingSenseofCents-MichelleMichelle saw an income drop in March, but after her best month ever that was to be expected.

She took part in a webinar which helped her grow her email list, spent more time on Facebook with the goals of increasing her number of followers, and decided that she will keep her income reports because they’re so loved by all of her visitors.

She also started a community group for her website, started a new interview series on her blog (the first one is fascinating!), and created a free Master Your Money email course.

Next month she plans on getting at least 3 months ahead on posts for her blog, doing more live interviews, and creating another product to sell.

#2. AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com – $60,065.61 (+7,910.61)

AuthorityWebsiteIncome-JonHaverMarch was full of new things for John with a new baby, a new income record, 2 new hires, and a big new project.

Phew, typing that was tiring, I can’t imagine working on all of that at the same time!

ContentRefined has been growing 10% week over week, the BrandBuilders site sold out within hours, and his FBA businesses started seeing some success.

Next month he plans on getting better at managing his team, creating more valuable content for his site, and focusing on his largest opportunities and ignoring the smaller ones.

#3. SoOverThis.com – $53,910 (+29,592)

Justin more than doubled his income since last month, which is crazy considering that he also has a real job!

This was his best month ever revenue wise, and he expects April to break yet another record.

He purchased 2 new sites this month with strong social media accounts and decent traffic. Even though he’s behind his goal from last year, he’s not sure if he wants to get to 100 sites because of the necessary time commitment. Read more

Income-Roundup-February-2017

February 2017 Income Report Roundup

Income-Roundup-February-2017When I was just starting out, my favorite posts were income reports.

I couldn’t believe (and I really wanted to believe) that people like me were making thousands of dollars per month online.

I devoured post after post, and the more I read the more inspired I got.

However, it’s hard to find the time to read all of the income reports that get published and figure out who is telling the truth and who is lying which is why I prefer income report roundups.

Matthew Woodward’s income report roundups were my favorite ones of them all, but sadly he hasn’t published one in nearly 3 months.

While I can’t change the fact that he’s not publishing them anymore, I can do something else: publish them myself!

I’ve picked a couple bloggers with diverse backgrounds to add into this report, but if you you publish income reports yourself and you’d like to be added, please let me know in the comments below!

Let’s get into it!

#1. MakingSenseOfCents.com – $146,498.77

MakingSenseofCents-MichelleFebruary was the highest income month ever for Michelle’s blogging business as she promoted her friend’s course and was featured in Forbes which brought in over 50,000 visitors to her site.

Most of her income came from the BlueHost affiliate program and her Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing course.

For the upcoming months she’s planning on decreasing her number of posts per week, increasing her Facebook and Pinterest ad spending, and possibly changing or adding new content to her income reports.

She also plans on earning $1,000,000, doing more live interviews, and having a better work-life balance in 2017.

#2. AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com – $52,155

AuthorityWebsiteIncome-JonHaverFebruary was good to Jon.

Even though he had a big drop in earnings for his passive income portfolio, his overall income is as good as it’s ever been.

He increased his stake in BrandBuilders, tried out a new website/PBN growth strategy, and had success with his service-based businesses.

In the next months he plans on buying more Amazon FBA businesses, growing new sites, and continue focusing on the systems of building a profitable business.

#3. SoOverThis.com – $24,318
