July Income Report – My Best Month Ever

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.

  1. I’m happy to hear your earnings for the month. That’s already big bucks for you. Hopefully, I could earn the same amount of money soon.

  2. that is a good amount..lucky guy

    1. Thanks, but only a portion of that was lucky. The rest,… well, for all the years I’ve put into it, it’s pretty low, so I have a long way to go.

    1. Thanks Jake. I certainly do need to figure things out just a bit better than I have, but making more money certainly isn’t depressing.

  3. Great going man! My AdSense income stooped to hell this time though overall I had a great month too – thanks to a lot of referral income!

    Btw, do you think infolinks make sense with that kind of yield?

    1. I’ve tried both Infolinks and Kontera on the blog; neither one generated anything, so I’m using it on one of my other websites; not working much there either.

  4. Well done on your income, great to see people making over the $200 mark. Keep it up and you will hit the $500 mark soon.

    1. Thanks George. I’m certainly hoping to make it a regular event, making bigger and better money that is.

  5. hi Mitch,
    Congrats on a good month, especially given this economy. 🙂
    And you are correct… success is usually only a small part “good luck” and a large part “hard work”. It doesn’t happen overnight, and it doesn’t happen without a lot of work.
    I hope August beats July. 🙂 ~ Steve

    1. Thanks Steve. Weird, though, the month isn’t starting off all that well. For some odd reason, I haven’t shown a single penny in Adsense this month, and that’s strange. But we’ll see how things go as the month progresses

  6. It’s cool that you’ve posted this so everyone can learn from you. If I put on my marketing consultant hat I would follow up to ask: is that your net? How many opportunities slipped through the cracks? Is there a pattern re what worked better in July, that you can apply to Aug? Are you getting the right traffic?

    1. Well Rebekah, as I said, it was kind of a fluke. One of my web clients needed to move to a new host, so I gave him two options, he picked one, and purchased it through one of my links. It wasn’t even from my blog, so the blog gets no credit for the sale.

      But that’s kind of how things are supposed to work; I present things, hope to get lots of traffic, and then hope something I’m showing appeals to a potential buyer.

  7. Wow, haven’t been here in awhile. Glad to see you passed the $200 mark. I hope you can reach the $1k mark this month.

    1. Hi Deneil. Thanks; Actually, I’m just hoping I can at least duplicate the $200 again, but the month is starting off very slowly so far.

  8. Hi Mitch,

    Congratulations.That’s very good results especially adsense which seems consistent.


  9. Great going on Adsense Mitch. Adsense is really slow this month as far as I’m concerned.

    If it wasn’t for my paid sites your be all over me. Lucky I have that to fall back on.
    .-= Sire´s last blog ..Updating The Update On Snap Dollars =-.

    1. Well that’s okay, Sire, because one of these days, I’m going to beat you straight up.

      That is, if Adsense stops acting up on me. You’re right, it’s really slow this month.
