Hello! Welcome to my Blogging and Income Report for August 2017! After a very busy summer I was happy to have a “quiet” month where I was able to really get some work done. Lots of exciting things happening here at TFTL Headquarters and I’m excited to keep learning and growing my little slice of the Internet.
Blogging and Income Report – August 2017
Last month I referred to an online course I’m working on, which I completed and offered to a select beta group. With their help I’ll be making improvements to the course before I offer it up to the public, but I’m really excited about it! I also introduced a few new product designs, including the Rainbow Carriage, and the “Magical Groom” print. Still so many ideas in my head and hopefully I’ll be able to debut some more this month!
My numbers were down slightly compared to July but nothing to be too concerned about.
My top referral sources for August – Google, Pinterest, Direct traffic, Facebook, and Bing (it cracks me up that Bing and Yahoo keep trading places on this list).
Other August Happenings
August was pretty low key. I was excited to see ride around the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America after a long hiatus. Towards the end of the month was our annual participation in CHOC Walk in the Park.
Here’s what I earned in August 2017. I list the earnings by network, and then state the specific brands/shops in parenthesis. If I didn’t make any money through a specific affiliate channel, I will leave it off the list (all those zeros could get depressing)!
(Keep in mind I’m only sharing the revenue I generate through my websites and social media accounts.)
Sponsored Content – $850.00
Sponsored Tweets (Izea) – $0.12
Affiliates (some of the links below contain my affiliate code)
Total revenue for July 2017 = $1883.85.
– Total revenue the previous month = $1414.87.
– Difference: $468.98
I *thought* this was my best month ever, but I forgot about my affiliate revenue from the Facebook Growth course back in May, which was an anomaly … so this was my best month ever WITHOUT any weird special promotions. 😉
Things I need to work on:
For September I’m promoting that Facebook Growth course again and need to update my bonus course. I also need to update my weddings course with the feedback from my beta group. And also work on getting more shirt designs up. AND ALSO keep publishing articles! Also, it’s my birthday month and I plan to take a weekend off to relax. I’m so excited!
That’s it for now! Thank you for reading. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll try my best to answer! I also would like to know if the information I’m providing is helpful or what else you would want to see/learn from an income report. Let me know how I can help you! Have a great month, everyone!
