March Income Report – Record Numbers and New Opportunities

March was a month where I continued to try and push myself to do better and more work. Overall it was a success both in terms of the work completed and the results achieved…

Right now my online projects are at a lot of fun stages with some promising projects at very early stages with others maturing nicely.

I continue to struggle with the question of is my divided focus right for me/my business but in terms of building a diversified “anti-fragile” online business I am happy with it.

Plus building new projects/businesses/systems with a great team is simply a lot of FUN!

My hope with these income posts is that I can show you that making money online with a busy schedule (day job + family) is not a mystery and is possible. My hope is that these posts inspire some of you and that the behind the scenes look into my business both the successes and failures will help someone with their business.

My Focuses:

  1. Passive Income Website Portfolio
  2. AuthorityWebsiteIncome Blog
  3. SEO & Expired Domain Services:
  4. Amazon FBA Business
  5. New Web App Project

Key Successes

  1. FBA Business Sale Progress– Great progress with a great partner on this front. The sale which is still being finalized will be a great fit including some weekly coaching while the business transitions to the new owner including 1/3rd ownership staying with me. It is still being closed but I am looking forward to growing this business with a great partner.
  2. New Web App Project – I am working with a great developer and have an outstanding business team lead along with the partnership of some of the biggest players in the space for the creation of a new web app. The entire team is pushing hard and will be getting ready to have this very cool service ready in under 1 month!
  3. Record Numbers! These results are encouraging to validate the work I am doing is generating the results I am after!

Key Failures

  1. Purchase Site Performing Below Expectation– One project I am working on brings some select investors money together with my own to purchase a site and convert it into an FBA business. The pace of acquiring the site along with the site having challenges with getting its affiliate links up and running has put us a little behind schedule. Not a failure and a great group of knowledgeable investors but certainly a challenge.
  2. One Small Mistake & Amazon Withholds $20k – Amazon closed down my affiliate account for sending emails with my affiliate ID in it (stupid mistake on my part that I was unaware of being in violation of their terms – made an extra $10 and lost $20k+). This has resulted in $24k being held by Amazon not to be dispersed. Frustrating! BUT this online business will throw punches and we need to as quickly as possible move past. I am spending my time as efficiently as possible to appeal but I AM NOT dwelling on it. I am back up and running and focusing most on continuing to grow and learn from my mistakes small or big.
  3. Learning New Skills – After a little self-reflection I am continuing to build upon what I am having success with and even though my businesses are diversified I have not developed and successfully applied any new skill set to any business. This is something that I need to be aware of and look to pick a topic and develop a detailed plan for me to become a world-class expert at it over time. Website monetization and paid traffic are two skill sets not developed enough in my business/toolkit that could really help my business!

 

2016 Business Goals

Below is my businesses main goals for 2016

Part 1 – Passive Authority & Niche Website Income Profit/Loss

Picture2

3 Goals in 2016 for my Website Portfolio Business

  1. Systematize Top 20 Sites in Portfolio

Mar Update – Not a lot of progress on this front. I have a solid system built for continuing to publish quality content and generate some real and some high quality PBN links but in general I am leaving a TON of money on the table when it comes to monetizing the traffic!

 

  1. Buy 1 Site Per Month

Mar Update – One site purchased at a decent multiple and another very small site purchased.

  • GOAL = 1 Website
  • ACTUAL = 1 decent website purchased and 1 very inexpensive website purchased

Picture3

If any readers are looking to sell their profitable site(s) VERY QUICKLY let me know by emailing me. I can let you know in 12hrs if I am interested and complete the purchase in 24-48hrs – Contact Me Here

I have found the right sellers are those…

  • Looking to sell FAST (under 24hrs has been accomplished!) (shorter time for due diligence on my end increases risk for me)
  • Not wanting to spend a lot of time on the sales process (analytics and income proof is all I need)
  • Sites are medium-questionable quality (questionable SEO, non-native English articles are OK)
  • High quality sites making over $500/month often make sense to sell via other channels (EmpireFlippers is a great marketplace)
  • Understand that the benefits of the bullet points above means the sales multiple will be lower

If you have an Amazon Affiliate site you are looking to sell fast please let me know – Looking to buy fast at market value!!

  1. Sell Websites Strategically for $100k Total

Mar Update – This goal was achieved in Feb with the sale of a six figure option (see details here – creative structure here). Right now the deal continues to be going well with the site performing well under the control of the new team.

 

PRIMARY GOAL – OVERALL INCOME FOR WEBSITE PORTFOLIO

Picture4

Mar Update – A $10k/month passive income portfolio is ideal! I am a little behind that and once the sales go through this number will drop. Note that I have not “corrected” my previous earnings for what is being held due to my Amazon affiliate account closure.

 

Part 2 – Authority Website Income Blog Profit/Loss

Picture5

 

3 Goals in 2015 for AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com

  1. Post Once Per Week

Mar Update – I missed one week in March…need to catch up now!

  • Plan = 4
  • Actual = 3

Picture6

  1. 10x my Outreach

Mar Update – Several email interviews and 1 podcast but not the 10x effort I need to put in here.

 

  1. Site Redesign – Completed!

Mar Update – Continuing to tweak but I can call this one complete!

 

PRIMARY GOAL – GROW TO 30k VISITORS PER MONTH

Mar Update – 28% year over year increase. I believe if I can achieve my weekly posting plus my 10x outreach I can achieve this goal!

 

Picture7

Part 3 – Services Business Profit/Loss

Picture8

  1. Systems Overhaul/Refresh– This one hasn’t started yet but I have a plan for it mapped out.
  2. Improve email marking and sales automation– In January I started down this road moving all contacts over to ActiveCampaign but have not fully fleshed out the sales automation yet!
  3. BrandBuilders.io Becomes The Go-To Resource for Done 4 You Amazon FBA Private Label Websites – Great progress with some VERY VERY happy customers. Always growing pains but Andrew is doing an awesome job here! The next steps with this business are setting it up to be a long term sustainable success so it will be around in 10 years!

PRIMARY GOAL – STAND ALONE SYSTEMATIZED SERVICES BUSINESS IN 2016

Part 4 – Amazon FBA Business

Picture9

  1. Sell FBA Business for 30x with 3+ Solid Months – Great progress on this front in March with the terms of a creative deal being fleshed out and in the hands of the lawyers to finalize the paperwork. It is a great combination that again makes the pie bigger with me staying on to help train up a highly skilled/motivated individual moving from the boardroom to the online business world.
  2. Launch Brand #2 – BAD month on this front with the samples SUCKING. It is a seasonal business with the spring being the busy period and time is slipping away. A small pivot on the product we will focus on and I am hoping to still capture the season.
  3. Launch Brand #3 – There were challenges with Brand #3’s affiliate site but I hope it is resolved now and need to be hitting brand #3 hard in March.

FBA Business Results

 

2 new products with bigger promotions at the end of March resulted in about a $750 decrease in net income.

Part 4 – Web App Business – Coming May 2016

Stay tuned…the solution, team and plan is all coming together!

Picture12

Overall Income Update

Original Monthly Net Income Target (original goal $15k/month reliable income by age 35)

  • Target Net Income = $8,650
  • Actual net Income = $34,766.57
  • 2016 Average Monthly Net Income = $30,764.69 (stretch goal is 30k average for the year)

Gross revenue is a vanity number for my business and not shared

Final Comments

March was by the numbers another great month. My increase in effort I believe is paying off and I will look to continue pushing hard over the coming months to see several substantial opportunities fully realized.

Why Don’t I Share Revenue Numbers? Revenue numbers are a vanity number for a business whose primary purpose is to provide income to support a lifestyle/family! I would encourage anyone who is building a business whose primary purpose is to provide profit to support their family/lifestyle to focus your attention on profit and not revenue! A great book to focus on profit is Profit First!

Why do I still have a Day Job? When I share these reports the most common question I get is why do I still have a day job or some variation of that question. The answer is that…

  1. I enjoy my day job… it is challenging and I am learning a lot at it as well as online that makes me better at both. Me increasing my abilities will have a bigger long term benefit to whatever I put my efforts towards than any immediate income.
  2. The second reason is that I have set a very strict set of guidelines for me to prove that my online business meets the “reliable” criteria I have set.

This is obviously a question that I consider with my family frequently and I am very fortunate to be in a position where we have choices.

 

Hope you had a killer month and if you are just getting started don’t let larger numbers and multiple projects scare you… start small and work everyday.

February Income Report – New Opportunities

I have big goals for 2016 and planned on coming out of the gate quick this year.

My usual busy online work schedule has been even busier with me finding a little more time in my day to do some work. Even a few 5-10 minute times during the day can add up!

Certainly February was not without its challenges and I am happy to share everything including both the good and the bad!

My new monthly report format will focus on my 4 main business “divisions”…

  1. Passive Income Website Portfolio
  2. AuthorityWebsiteIncome Blog
  3. SEO &Expired Domain Services:
  4. Amazon FBA Business

Key Successes

  1. Six Figure Website SaleClosed a creative deal which made the size of the pie larger for everyone. Initially it looked like a deal was not going to be able to happen but then we looked at some creative options which resulted in this great deal for everyone involved.
  2. Pushing Through Failures – February through a few punches as listed below but the business was able to respond well to all of them and quickly get over them. Problems = Progress!
  3. Interesting Opportunities – As is always the case ideas/opportunities seem to come at times of highest action. February brought a few unique ideas/opportunities my way in addition to the sale mentioned above. I am looking forward to sharing more!
  4. Diversified Income – I do believe if my goal was to maximize my total income/net worth I have my hand in too many pots. However, my goal which is subtly but significantly different is to provide financial freedom/security to my family which means stable/robust sources of online income are key. The last few months have showed the benefit of this approach with income staying reasonably stable while each individual part of the business experiencing its own seasonal swings.

Key Failures

  1. Family Sick – We had a couple bugs churn through our entire family for 2 weeks. My priority is always taking care of my family and as a result I had less time/energy to put towards the business for a couple weeks. I talk like I was helping take care of my family but I am much worse at being sick than my wife who had to take on even more work than normal.
  2. Sale of FBA Business is Complex – I was hoping to be able to quickly and cleanly sell my FBA business but have realized that this sale will need to be a little more creative than a simple sale of an online business.

part 1

3 Goals in 2016 for my Website Portfolio Business

1. Systematize Top 20 Sites in Portfolio

Feb Update – Lots of room for improvement on the monetization side. I am contemplating what the right structure is for my team and sites. Right now I generate $10k/month+ and considering if I should bring in some higher level dedicated help to really work on improving these sites with them getting a % of the upside. Right now I am simply wrestling with how to best structure a team to manage the higher level monetization testing questions. My team can execute the content and backlinks simply but based on the success of the new owners of my Six Figure Website Sale I clearly have a lot of room for improvement!

2. Buy 1 Site Per Month

Feb Update – My plan is to add 1 site a month to my portfolio and I did that in Feb with a little site.

  • GOAL = 1 Website
  • ACTUAL = 1 Website Purchased in February

post

If any readers are looking to sell their profitable site(s) VERY QUICKLY let me know by emailing me. I can let you know in 12hrs if I am interested and complete the purchase in 24-48hrs – Contact Me Here

I have found the right sellers are those…

  • Looking to sell FAST (under 24hrs has been accomplished!) (shorter time for due diligence on my end increases risk for me)

  • Understand that the benefits of the bullet points above means the sales multiple will be lower

If you have an Amazon Affiliate site you are looking to sell fast please let me know – Looking to buy fast at market value!!

3. Sell Websites Strategically for $100k Total

Feb Update – SUCCESS (kinda)! Very happy to have a success on this front early in the year! Well kinda… the sale includes the option to buy for $100k but for now it includes a “rental” option plus up-side consideration. More details about the creative structure here.

PRIMARY GOAL – OVERALL INCOME FOR WEBSITE PORTFOLIO

portfolio

Feb Update – Strong continued performance for a shorter month after the seasonal bump is over! A $10k/month passive income portfolio is ideal!

3 Goals in 2015 for AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com

1. Post Once PerWeek

Jan Update – Never missing a week will be a challenge for me but I am committed again to making this happen!

  • Plan = 4
  • Actual = 4

post published

2. 10x my Outreach

Feb Update –1 podcast interview completed and participated in several outreach round-ups. Not the level of effort I need here!

3. Site Redesign – Completed!

Feb Update – Continuing to tweak but I can call this one complete!

 

PRIMARY GOAL – GROW TO 30k VISITORS PER MONTH

Feb Update – 30% year over year increase and traffic solid but not amazing yet! Need to continue publishing VERY useful content every single week.

Part 3 – Services Business Profit/Loss

4. Systems Overhaul/Refresh – This one hasn’t started yet but I have a plan for it mapped out. We need to better establish auditing of our existing procedures and over time some of the procedures have gotten stale. This is unbelievably boring but incredibly important work!

5. Improve email marking and sales automation – In January I started down this road moving all contacts over to ActiveCampaign but have not fully fleshed out the sales automation yet!

6. BrandBuilders.io Becomes The Go-To Resource for Done 4 You Amazon FBA Private Label Websites – Great progress on this one in January with a podcast interview at TheAmazingSeller.com and several VERY happy customers.

PRIMARY GOAL – STAND ALONE SYSTEMATIZED SERVICES BUSINESS IN 2016

Part 4 – Amazon FBA Business

4

  1. Sell FBA Business for 30x with 3+ SolidMonths – Progress in February has been hit and miss. Based on the age of the site it is clear that a clean sale is going to be tricky, however, some creative options are definitely on the table.
  2. Launch Brand #2 – For my next FBA Brand February was a slow month for getting it moving. Samples that arrived were not ideal.
  3. Launch Brand #3 –An opportunity for Brand #3 is moving quickly and I am excited about its options! This brand is where I will be investing the majority of my FBA time in March getting it up and running!

Final Comments

Continued strong results for the business! It is time to work harder/push the team more and ensure all gains are not fleating!

Look for the launch of an exciting new idea in March/April! Jumping into a business model that I have always wanted to but never had the right solution/team… I have both of those now and very excited to see where we can take the newest venture!

January Income Report and 2016 Goals

The first income post of a new year is my favourite as I get to share both my new goals for the year and the direction of my business.

NOTE – If you have an Amazon Affiliate site and are interested in selling please let me know ASAP as I could potentially pay competitively for it – Contact me at jonhaver11 (at) gmail (dot) com or  here 

 

2015 was a great year highlighted early on in January with the birth of my Daughter and overall a record-setting year for my business, in 2016 I will continue to grow my business to new levels.

My “why” for this business continues to be clearer and clearer and that is to provide financial security for my family, allow me to spend more time with them and give me an outlet for my need to build interesting/useful teams & systems.

The business ended the year strong with record months in Nov and Dec I was excited to try and keep the momentum going into the New Year.

My new monthly report format will focus on my 4 main business “divisions”…

  1. Passive Income Website Portfolio
  2. AuthorityWebsiteIncome Blog
  3. SEO & Expired Domain Services:
  4. Amazon FBA Business

Income Report Dec 2016

Well I wish I could say this every month! Record numbers for the second month in a row!

Certainly the year-end push helped with my passive income portfolio but I hope you take away both the good and the bad from this post (plenty of both).

When I started my income post my numbers were TINY and as the number increases I understand they can start to break from what is achievable in front of people. However, what I hope people take away is that no one of my businesses is CRAZY numbers and picking any one of the businesses and tackling it first is very much achievable!

Never shared before – I share the simple process I credit the majority of the businesses success to. I think it is the single greatest reason that I have been able to build a team which can execute all this work so well with me only working a couple hrs a night!

In this report I will talk through my monthly results for…

  1. Passive Income Website Portfolio
  2. AuthorityWebsiteIncome Blog
  3. SEO &Expired Domain Services:
  4. Amazon FBA Business (see latest updates here)

Key Successes

  1. This Website Redesign (let me know your thoughts & opportunities to make it better!) – It has been long overdue and I finally have a site that looks ½ decent… not mind-blowing awesome but at least decent. Also I finally have some really solid opt-in bonuses and the site organized to make sense with its current topics.
    1. My New favorite page – http://authoritywebsiteincome.com/start-here/ (Thrive can do awesome stuff easily)
  2. Amazon FBA Results – Not surprising December was a great month for the FBA business. The income results are still growing in January so excited to continue to watch.
  3. PBN Procedure Improvements – Doing an analysis on all customer feedback from 2015 for my 2016 Done For You PBN Service I saw content quality to be the biggest issue. My project manager followed my very boring system for implementing a new procedure expertly and the results were dramatic… 25% of the writers were fired, new writers hired and no comments about article quality being anything but great since.

How To Get A Lot Done When You Only Have 2 Hrs a Night!

A common question on this site is how with working only a couple hrs a night is it possible to get everything done and keep so many balls in the air (portfolio of sites, this blog, lightningrank services, FBA business + others)?

The fact is it is the process described below executed repeatedly over years and years which has resulted in building up an awesome team with robust procedures and all measured/tracked weekly.

My Process for Getting Work Done:

  1. Identify need/problem (me, project manager or one of my team leads)
  2. Create a quick procedure for it (me, project manager or one of my team leads)
  3. Assign it to a team member or hire 3-5 people on UpWork.com (project manager or team lead)
    1. Give the 3-5 people a similar test assignment with no interview and minimal training (project manager or team lead)
    2. Review quality of work done and communication and then fire all but the best
  4. Assign the (potentially new) team member to execute the created procedure and work together to improve it (project manager or team lead)
  5. Manage the change to the new procedure (project manager or team lead)
    1. Input the new procedure into the procedure database (list in a google doc)
    2. Communicate the new procedure and the basics of the change to the affected team members
  6. Begin executing the procedure (new team member)
  7. Improve & Track Desired Results of the New Procedure
    1. New team member to send out weekly update with basic update to entire team including myself focusing on the metrics of both what has been done and how it has impacted the key end result the new procedure was put in place to improve (new team member)
    2. Key metric(quantitative or qualitative) for the new procedure added to the team lead or project managers weekly business scorecard which gets reviewed at the weekly 1 on 1 meeting I have (most important 1hr I do all week)! (project manager and myself)

I realize those were probably the most boring 255 words in this websites history but very likely this simple process deserves the majority of the credit for this businesses steady and meaningful growth.

Key Failures

  1. Planning & Priorities – A lot of irons in the fire is the normal and although I certainly didn’t feel overwhelmed I did find I was pushing the pace I was working at a little harder than normal which resulted in me cutting down my critical planning time. Giving up some planning time occasionally is ok but eventually I find myself doing stupid work that provides minimal value and neglecting what really matters. December as a consequence of actually having more time to work I became less efficient with the work I was doing (ie entering blog comments for a lower performing niche site) The business continues to run if I did nothing but the issue is I am uniquely positioned to do many of the activities that are needed to push it forward so I can’t spend my time on stupid stuff!
  2. PPC – Why I can’t crack this nut is still a mystery! I enjoy numbers, enjoy testing, enjoy procedures but for whatever reason I still struggle to get PPC working in any part of my business. Part of the problem is I set something up and then re-visit it 2 weeks later. I believe more focused and frequent testing is required.

Below is a summary of my progress towards my goals for 2015.

Next months income post will have my goals for 2016 and I am very interested to hear what changes you would like to see to these income reports!

5 Goals in 2015 for my Website Portfolio Business

1. Build Six Figure Website(Failed in 2015)

DEC UPDATE – NOT ACHIEVED – Built a solid website that gets a nice amount of traffic and income but it is about 10x smaller than I wanted. It makes 500-600/month (more in the busy months). Definitely very profitable after investing about $6k to get it going a year ago but not as good as I wanted.

Every month traffic increased with the exception of December (typically low month for this niche)

aud overview

Oct Stats

  • Traffic =32,588
  • Income = $612

2. Continue Building Smaller Profitable “Niche” Sites (Failed in 2015)

DECUPDATE – A few of the sites I started have built up to be valuable sites. Most of the sites I only very briefly focused on did not do well.

3. Systematize Top 20 Sites in Portfolio (Achieved in 2015)

DEC UPDATE –The content machine is humming along. 3 great writers turning out 10+ articles per week each for my money sites along with niche specific PBN and PBN links being built is continuing to improve rankings and search results. So far the simple combination of quality Content + quality Links = Success

4. Buy 2 Sites Per Month(Achieved in 2015)

DECUPDATE: For only the second month of the year I did not purchase any websites!

  • GOAL = 22 sites purchased by Nov 2015
  • ACTUAL = 26 sites (+1 in Nov)

# site purchased

If any readers are looking to sell their profitable site(s) VERY QUICKLY let me know by emailing me. I can let you know in 12hrs if I am interested and complete the purchase in 24-48hrs – Contact Me Here

I have found the right sellers are those…

  • Looking to sell FAST (under 24hrs has been accomplished!) (shorter time for due diligence on my end increases risk for me)
  • Not wanting to spend a lot of time on the sales process (analytics and income proof is all I need)
  • Sites are medium-questionable quality (questionable SEO, non-native English articles are OK)
  • High quality sites making over $500/month often make sense to sell via other channels (EmpireFlippers is a great marketplace)
  • Understand that the benefits of the bullet points above means the sales multiple will be lower

If you have an Amazon Affiliate site you are looking to sell fast please let me know!

 

5. Improve Monetization of Existing Sites(Achieved in 2015)

DEC UPDATE – Success in the numbers! Beyond just the seasonal push with my Amazon sites my student loan and six figure site had a record month!RECORD month for my niche website business!

PRIMARY GOAL – OVERALL INCOME FOR WEBSITE PORTFOLIO

 

Near doubling of my affiliate sites in Dec!

overview

Part 3 – Services Business Profit/Loss

  1. Create Stand Alone Business(Success – See LightningRank.com)
  2. Rework and Customize Systems(Progress – But More Improvement in 2016)
  3. Systematic Customer Acquisition(Failed in 2015)

2015 business goals

Final Comments

Average income hit my goal in 2015…just realized this! That is a very satisfying feeling knowing I have been working towards that number for many years!

That is enough celebrating… time to get back to the grind… reliability of income was poor $2.2k income in Feb! Lots of opportunities left un-explored. Lots of goals missed! Results will be better in 2016.

But overall I am thrilled with the year, the progress of the business and most importantly the people I have had the opportunity to work with has been very rewarding!

Here is to you! Thank you for reading what can often be simply an internal analysis of my own business!

Your pushing and proddding and question asking keep me motivated to show you everything except my passwords in my online businesses.

I will continue to show you both the good and as often as possible the bad as well!

Big plans for 2016 stay tuned!

2 requests…

  1. Let me know how you would like my 2016 income reports to change?
  2. Let me know what you think of the new site design

Record Income Numbers – November 2015

Building something substantial is pure and complete enjoyment…

What do I mean? Well watching my 2.5year old son build things sometimes physically(pushes chairs and the plastic kids table around to make a very wobbly but fun slide) and sometimes imaginary (pirate ship) it is clear he is never more engaged than when he is building something.

I believe many of us are the same way when it comes to our businesses. Building a new process or new business can result in our highest levels of engagement, productivity and fun!

November was a month where I was Building!

Often with my limited work hours I struggle to get past sustainment but November I was able to put time into building out new strategies!
