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.
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
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.

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