Income Report – April of 2015

Income Report – April of 2015 – Expenses Everywhere

Have you been waiting for my monthly report? Here is it: April of 2015 income report.

April was a great month for me. Why? Because my niche websites started picking up more traffic and on of them finally ranking #1 for one keyword with 18k monthly searches on Bing and Yahoo.

And the end of the month I finally hired VAs to work full time for me. Yes, not just one. Actually 3 VAs and 1 Writer. They just started working at the end of the month so we will see progress in next months. I will make blog post how exactly I hire and trained VAs, but for now you can read round up post which I did about how to hire VAs.

Another news. I am finally releasing my plugin on May 18th!

Stay tuned for the Monday blog post! I will reveal the plugin, and there will be a free version and coupon for paid version.

Alright, let’s go to see some numbers.

Amazon Affiliate Incomes – April of 2015

I did some research and comparing of table plugins. I compared more than 10 of them, and I did A/B testing through optimizely.

Guess which one was the best by conversion rate? The 1st place got Cool Tables, and the 2nd was TablePress. Why? I think Cool Tables is better to use in a mobile version of the website.

Supplement Website

supplements-website-table-april-15I finally hit #1 spot in Yahoo and Bing. How big is a traffic I am getting now? About 60-100 visitors per day. Not bad because I am far away in Google.

What next? My VAs are working on creating backlinks with a white hat method and my writer creating awesome content for my website and publishing it two a week for now.

In total website brought me $124.41 in last months.

Home Electronics Website

home-electronics-website-table-april-15This website is getting organic links! This is the excellent sign!

I even saw links from forums like slickdeals where people mentioned my website that it has valuable reviews abut the products.

Not too many sales from here, just made $19.80 in April.

The only thing I did at the end of April: I add a nice logo that one of the graphic designers from fiverr did. Yes, fiverr. I tested out 4 different graphic designers which I found referrals to them through internet forums and order from each of them. Honestly, only one was good. And I must say he is really damn good for $5.

I setup the same plan like for supplement website. Will publish two articles per week and VAs will do white hat way to build links.

Small Niche Websites

Nothing excited here. I added a logo on each of them as well and just sold couple items.

For now my VAs won’t work on this websites, and I will leave it like this for now.

Total Amazon Affiliate Income

I also made some $ from other niche websites that I totally forgot, but looks like they need my attention soon.

With minimum interaction in April in total I made only $161.70 through Amazon affiliate program. Not bad. I have a feeling the income will increase next month again!

    Hey Yaro,
    Stumbled upon your site via Niche Pursuits. I have a few sites of my own and am consistently looking for new revenue streams. This was your latest post and noticed you made the most with Guest Posting. How so? Where and how do you make money guest posting?

      Hi RJ,
      About guest posting. It’s just a big website which bloggers somehow finding it for guest posting through Google.
      It’s website with PR3 (some people still care), DA around 30. Without any advertisement on blogs and forums people sending couple request for guest posting.
      I have a section in a widget for people to send the request for paid guest posting. Of course 80% wants to free guest posting, but I accept only paid ones.
      I am checking their website prior submitting articles to make sure it’s not spammy and regular niche.
      With better promotion on forums and blogs I think I will get more people interested to post bloggers paid guest posts.

      Let me know if you have any questions.
      Thanks,
      Yaro

        Ok, but what site? is it like Hubpages? The site pays you to post? or you are like a freelance writer?

        • Yaro   •     Author

          It’s just a normal blog website. Like http://www.health.com. Random people just contacting to me to post their guest posts and they pay for it.
