September 2008 Blog Revenue Report
September ended up being my busiest month yet (travel wise), since I started making money online 12 years ago. The beginning of the month started off with IzeaFest in Florida, then BlogWorld in Las Vegas and finishing up with SEO Think Tank in California. To finish off my cross country tour, I will be speaking this weekend at Affiliate Summit Social Media NY.
In addition to all of my traveling, my goal for September was to try and make a blog post every day. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make a post everyday, but I came very close and ended up with 28 posts. This was almost a 100% increase from the 15 posts I wrote in August. So what do think? Should I continue to post almost every day?
Total profit from the blog in August was $4,108.21, and the revenue report for September is below.
SEPTEMBER 2008 BLOG REVENUE REPORT:
– Affiliate Sales/Referrals: $3,179.33
– Private Ad Sales: $3,000.00
Total Revenue: $6,180.98
– Miva Ad Campaign: $188.62
Total Costs: $188.62
Total Blog Income for September 2008: $5,992.36
The only ad costs I have running on the site right now is for the Miva campaign I setup months ago. My account is now finally depleted with the initial few hundred I deposit into the campaign, and I will no longer be using their search marketing. No so much from a quality stand point, but mainly because I didn’t set anything up to track it’s performance on the blog.
There are only two “Blog Revenue” reports left, and those are for October and November. Once December hits, that will be the one year case study of “making money with a blog“. It’s been less than a year and ZacJohnson.com’s first month of generating revenue, in the amount of $1,487.64, has increased nearly 4 times… to over $6,000 in revenue a month. Not a bad case study for helping others make money online, while showing how it’s done in the process. Depending on how the next two month’s perform, this blog may earn over $40,000 within it’s first year of generating revenue… but the branding, networking and relationships resulting from the blog have been priceless. Thank you!
