July 2008 Blog Revenue Report
Better late than ever, so here is the Blog Revenue Report for July 2008. Travel and keeping busy delayed this report from being posted earlier. Since this is a one year case study for the blog and how you can generate money with a blog, I still wanted to make sure it was posted. I started generating revenue with this blog in December 2007 and the case study will conclude at the end of November 2008. Last month, the numbers for this blog ended up atÂ $5,142.72 profit, which just fell short of it’s previous high. The revenue numbers for July 2008 are shown below.
JULY 2008 BLOG REVENUE REPORT:
– Affiliate Sales/Referrals: $2,383.40
– Private Ad Sales: $1,300.33
– Reviews: $500.00
Total Revenue: $4,216.73
– Ad Spots on Blogs: $45.00
– Miva Ad Campaign: $70.55
Total Costs: $115.55
Total Blog Income for June 2008: $4,101.18
The Miva ad campaign is continually sending more traffic each month, but since the traffic is coming directly to the blog, I haven’t set anything up to test the quality of it. I may setup a few ad campaigns and send traffic to offers and follow up with a traffic quality post. Just targeting “affiliate” type keywords, the blog received 486 clicks in July from Miva. I will let the clicks keep coming through until I exhaust my initial $200 deposit I made into my account. Additional ad spots for ZacJohnson.com were purchased on a few smaller blogs that I read and wanted to show my support for.
