We are down to the last few “Blog Revenue Reports” for the blog, as the case study comes to an end with November 2008’s report… making it a full 1 year case study. When I first started ZacJohnson.com, I never would have expected it to be as promising and valuable as it is today. It’s simply amazing how many people are reading the blog, and the amount of exposure it’s given to me. Now whenever I attend an event or conference, everyone is telling me how they read the blog. That is just awesome!
Back to the blog report… July’s numbers came in at $4,101.18 profit and a break down of this month’s numbers are below.
AUGUST 2008 BLOG REVENUE REPORT:
– Affiliate Sales/Referrals: $2,774.88
– Private Ad Sales: $1,333.33
Total Revenue: $4,108.21
– Miva Ad Campaign: $101.60
Total Costs: $101.60
Total Blog Income for August 2008: $4,006.61
The only ad costs I have running on the site right now is for the Miva campaign I setup months ago. I was sure that I turned off the “auto-replenish” of funds, but apparently not… so they gigged me for another $250 into my balance. Once that is depleted I will close out the traffic from Miva.
For the most part, the numbers between July and August are nearly identical. The blog generated over $4,000 in profit again, so hopefully that is the bottom and low amount for the blog to hit. I expect much larger numbers for the month of September, not only because it’s when things start picking up again… but I’m also determined to write at least one post every day. So far it has been going well, but it is quite a job to accomplish. I’m looking forward to seeing the final numbers for the September.
