October 2008 Blog Revenue Report

HTML clipboard It was almost one year ago that I first starting producing revenue from this blog. Which means there is only one blog revenue report after this one, making for a full 12 months in the blog revenue case study. Last month was the second highest earning month for the blog, with $6,180.98 in revenue and $5,992.36 in profit. With the holiday season upon us, I wouldn’t be surprised to see overall affiliate earnings increase, as this is the time to start making big money.As mentioned, the total profit from the blog in September was $5,992.36, and the revenue report for October is below.


– Affiliate Sales/Referrals: $1,624.95
– Private Ad Sales: $2,470.00
– Reviews: $500.00
Total Revenue: $4,594.95

– No Costs
Total Costs: $0.00

Total Blog Income for October 2008: $4,594.95

The two main revenue sources for the blog, but decreased in amount from the previous month, but this was slightly expected as an advertiser’s time sensitive campaign came to a close. The drop in affiliate referral earnings seemed to be across the board. One network told me that one of my main referrals was taking time to focus on school, rather than affiliate marketing… which has greatly reduced their affiliate earnings. As the last two months of the year usually bring in the most activity, I would not be surprised to see this numbers increase.

As mentioned, there is only one more blog revenue report after this one… then my free ebook will be released on the full case study, and how to make money with a blog.
