March is over and April was kicked off with a bang… which was everyone’s own version of an April Fools Day joke or at least a Rick Roll or two. Getting back to making money, March was a full month with 31 days, so there was no excuses this month to fall short on revenue projections. During March, this blog also celebrated it’s one year anniversary! With a year under it’s belt, the blog just continues to grow in size and readership, and I thank you all! Letâ€™s take a look at how the blogâ€™s revenue performed during March 2008, compared to February’s earnings of $3,246.98 profit.
MARCH 2008 BLOG REVENUE REPORT:
– Affiliate Sales/Referrals: $1293.5
– Private Ad Sales: $1400.00
– Get Reviewed: $600.00
– ScratchBack Top Spots: $170.03
Total Revenue: $3,463.53
During March I had no ad costs, and the server costs are minimal since the blog is hosted on my own rack over servers.
Total Costs: $0.00
Total Blog Income for March 2008: $3,463.53
There was a slight drop in affiliate sales, but also a slight increase in private ad sales. There weren’t any big ScratchBack promotions going on during March, so the volume of advertisers was about half of February’s earnings. Lately there has been a high demand for advertising on the blog, so instead of placing advertisements all over, a new category called “Get Reviewed” has been added. This area will cover any advertised reviews on other ad networks, affiliate programs or blogs. All paid reviews will have full disclosure and I turn the majority of reviews down, do not expect this blog to become anything like paid review site.
This blog just keeps growing in size and I still have so much more to write up for you guys. Hopefully with the addition of my Twitter and FaceBook networking, I can start talking with my readers more and getting some ideas for new blogs. Speaking of new blog ideas, I would also like to start producing more video blog posts as well. The first three months since turning this blog profitable have been very close in revenue and exciting, can’t wait to see how April turns out!
