November 2015: Blog Net Income Report

Can you imagine making enough money to buy a new car, in a single month, from the internet? This guy just did that! Blog Income Reports are nuts, he's earned $24k in a single month. Reading this has got me thinking about my New Year's goals and how I want to make more money on the side next year, so I can afford to travel. Blogging might be my path to riches.

Welcome to the October 2015 blog net income report! It’s been a hectic few weeks so I am just now getting to post this. Below I will illustrate my total revenue for the month, as well as the detailed revenue streams. I will also show my total blog expenses for the month, and thus we will wind up with my monthly net income.

I have been watching many people around the blogosphere disclose their monthly online income, and quite honestly, I thought it would be a good idea to do the same. I am not disclosing any income from my day job as a Corporate Finance Manager. Instead, this will serve as a marker for the additional earnings I achieve as a result of my online endeavors and various side gigs.

Please understand that I am not disclosing this to make anyone jealous, only to serve as a very visual and tangible reminder that any of you reading this can achieve the same results…probably better even!

Category Explanations:

Advertising Sales: These are direct advertisements from various media companies. I have several sites which I own and have sectioned off that amount that I earn from those. I also place ads for clients of mine as well. These are other bloggers that I find advertising for, in which I keep a small percentage of the earnings for myself.

AdSense/Clickable Ads: These are the earnings I get from all of those banners you see spread throughout sites…they could be on the sidebar or even within the article itself. I actually keep the ads hidden and the only people that see them are the ones that find me through a search engine like Google or Yahoo. This way my more loyal readers aren’t bothered by the additional clutter and noise. This is an area I am always looking to increase.

Affiliate Earnings: These are the earnings you receive from selling other peoples (or your own) products on your website. Think of major players like Amazon Affiliates. If you put up their affiliate links people can buy items from Amazon from your site directly, which in turn earns you a portion of that revenue.

Misc Earnings: There will be always miscellaneous ways of earning income and racking up expenses! This misc. buckets is a collection of many items, some are recurring while others are one-off items. I might write an article for a major site and get paid $50 to do so. Or perhaps I help someone with organic link building. I also offer some minimal paid services for blog coaching and helping others start blogs…this earns me some additional income, but I haven’t widely publicized and advertised it to really grow that part of the business yet.

Summary and Conclusion

I totaled $24,162 this month! This was my all time high by a HUGE margin!!! I’ve never broken $15,000 before, let alone over $24,000 in a month. A lot of this has to do with an expanding customer base in regards to media and advertising agencies. We have heard a lot of talk about the economy improving, and then we also hear about a potential recession again…but I can honestly say that I have been in this business for about 5 years now and I have never seen such robust advertising budgets come my way before. It used to be just small ad agencies and boutique media companies that would seek me out, and now I am seeing some Fortune 500 customers knocking at my door. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a similar December as well. Stay tuned!

Lastly, many of you may have read my journey of increasing my net worth $400,000 in just 4 years that I shared awhile back. I’ve been asking each month in these income reports if any of you would be interested in seeing a monthly net worth update as well. Well, if you were paying attention, I finally published my first net worth update for June, and will continue doing so for the foreseeable future.

If you are interested in earning online income, and making $200,000 blogging, trust me it can be done! I’m telling you, the internet has opened up possibilities that used to be non-existent. If I can start a website and earn money, then literally everyone else in the world can too! You just need to have a little patience, and a little persistence. If you’re inspired, I included a banner below for BlueHost, this was the Hosting company that I started with as well. They help you setup your site for free, and are one of the cheapest and more reliable hosting companies in the game!
