March Income Report – Record Expenses

keyword

March was another very busy month with the launch of a new business and the growth of my team. With the month being all about expansion the numbers took a little dip (hopefully temporary). Record numbers are great except when they are expenses.

One thing you may notice that is a little different is that I don’t track top line revenue on my income reports…why?

February Income Report – New Records

passive income website porfolio5

February was a short month but all parts of my business saw success this month! With record revenue and net income numbers again I am happy to be ahead on my progress for all my stretch goals. However, being a little behind in my most recent PBN orders means I will likely incur a lot of expenses in Mar with little in the way of PBN services income so could potentially see a dip in earnings in the next income report.

Progress-towards-15k-per-month

With a lot of aggressive goals in 2014 I really wanted to get the year started off with a bang. Although my costs started to grow a little too high overall it was a great month for all 3 parts of my business…

  1.  Passive Income Website Portfolio
  2. AuthorityWebsiteIncome Blog
  3.  Expired Domain Services (Domain Finding Service,  Done for Your Private Blog Network)

One thing I have realized with my new format is that it provides more than vanity numbers and actually lets me make data driven decisions on what changes I should be making in my business! [Read more...]

December Monthly Income Report – New More Revealing Format

Net-Income-Split-By-Division

With 2013 coming to an end it is time for me to change the format of my monthly income reports. This monthly income post and entire site was started around my authority site case study for PayMyStudentLoans.com. However, as my focus has moved my monthly post has not kept up with the changes in my business.

The new format is going to be a snapshot with lots and lots of data/visuals of the 3 basic focuses of my business for 2014…

1. Building, Buying and Growing Authority/Niche Website Properties
2. Growing an audience at AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com blog
3. Growing the Services I offer (expired domain finding and private blog network building)

The reason I think sharing all this information is a good idea is… [Read more...]

November Income and Traffic Report

Nov

November was a head down nose to the grindstone kind of month for me and my online business.

Oct Income and Traffic Report

Income report

October was a busy month for me with holiday travel, business travel and personal travel I was on the road for ½ the month. For some people this is normal but for me it definitely is not! Although I would have preferred to be at home more I did get a nice little break. While in Chicago for a wedding I took the first full 48hr break from email that I think I ever have. [Read more...]

September Income And Traffic Report

September-Net-Income-8k-per-month

September was an exciting one! I saw a significant win with my purchased site turning it from making $0/month to almost $1k and my overall income for the September breaking some new records and coming so close to a huge milestone. The traffic to my case study site took a decline but analyzing all related Google trends that is to be expected (students are not looking for loans in September – they already have them). But, even with the decline some monetization changes I made after deep diving into my analytics last month have been paying off.  [Read more...]

Month 11 Income Report – Record Traffic but also Failures

Traffic Graph

It was another record traffic month! But my nothing but good news story had to stop at some point and here it is a post where I don’t get to report record income numbers for my case study website.

Also in this post I go into why I am planning on killing an email list that is getting a 50% opt in rate! I am curious if you think I am making a bad decision.

Although I am still very happy with the site and progress throughout my business, July was a month of a couple failed projects. I will dig into those in a lot of detail in this month’s post and what I have learned from them.

First… I am trying to keep consistent about getting these income reports out within the first week but all my focus was on creating the monster expired domain tutorial…my apologies. In my Aug income report (hopefuly published in the first week of September) I will talk more about the impact of that 8000 word, 6 video and custom tool post.
