On the heels of a decline in my June numbers, I’m happy to report a turnaround, of sorts. First, the numbers:
Adsense – $107.27
Commission Junction – $100.42
Paid Advertising – $29.63
Infolinks – $.06
Grand Total – $237.38
Yes, I’m happy with the numbers, which means I’ll be getting a couple more checks than normal, but I know the Commission Junction dollars were a fluke for the month, so I can’t count on that again; at least not yet. None of that came from the new little thing I have there on the right side, my weekly sales, although I know it got some visits in the month.
I’ve made a few changes to the site from last month. I’ve added the webinar to the left, under my ebook, and I’ve talked to my partner Renee and we’re going to reduce the price from now until the end of the year. Basically, we plan on trying to do a lot of these before the end of the year, and if we can generate buzz from the first one, then it’ll all be good. We’re also in the process of creating a survey, which I’ll post here and other places, and I hope many of you take it, as we’ll be offering some kind of freebies that can be downloaded afterwards.
I’ve also temporarily removed Adsense from the site. Not because it made little money, but because, at least when I tried getting onto the site, it seemed to be hanging up a lot this month. I initially removed the Adsense plugin, thinking that was it, but it’s Google itself. Not sure why it’s picking on the blog and not my websites, but so be it. Other than that, everything else is as it was.
And there we go. It would be nice to figure out how to make at least $100 a month from CJ on a more consistent basis, but hey, we all have to start somewhere.
