Monthly Report : May 2015

This month worked great, in most of the aspects. Its still one day more for the month to end and I am packing my stuff as I’d be going to my hometown. In my article How to be productive in holidays I mentioned that I’ll be leaving for a month long trip.

Talking about this month, it had been awesome. It had been great in terms of traffic, earnings, engagement and every possible way. Two months back I started working hard, and I am still working on it. In coming months I’ll surely publish a case study regarding this.

Meanwhile, these are few highlight events happened this month ~

Google Ads are still Off – Last month I removed all the adsense ads off my blog due to several reasons. I was thinking to put them back on during this month, but the blog worked quite well without them. Instead of a loss in earnings, I saw a dramatic increase in the total earnings of the blog.

There were quite a number of reasons Why I wasn’t happy serving those ads on my blog.

WordPress Startup Service –I recently started this awesome service where I helped startups to give them a boost start to their blog.  I got several emails asking about the service,  and I was able to convert a lot of readers into bloggers.

This service also boosted my earnings this month. What I did in this service was setup and pre-configure a wordpress blog for free. I installed all the needed plugins and themes , configured them in the proper way, give google adwords credit, toll free number and a free top level domain name. And all this was done free of cost.

The thing that bought money to the sales funnel was I asked those readers to purchase the web-hosting from my affiliate link. I made a handsome amount serving readers this month. [ Get a Free WP-self hosted Blog Setup from here ]

First WordPress theme launch – Also I launched my first theme this month. Although the theme didn’t do much. The theme still managed to make 5 sales, and this was quite convincing. Because it was our first wordpress theme, I had no prior knowledge. In coming months I’ll launch another theme.

Total Earnings –

Affiliate marketing

  • Ipage Web-Hosting – $525 [ Review ]

Theme Sales

  • $40 x 5 sales – $200 [ Download theme ]
  • Consulting – $12.5
  • Made a website from scratch – $98

Combined Earnings – $835.5

This month was great in terms of visitor engagement too. Below is how readers engaged with the blog during this month.

I specially thank Joy , piyush, enstine, Jackson and Rakesh for taking time out of their busy schedule to stop and comment at this blog.

Final words – Thanks a lot for a great month, the monthly traffic and income are increasing, and as well is the reader base. In the coming month I’ll be aiming to increase subscribers and increasing traffic more than earning. Although I have stopped publishing sponsored posts because of decreasing traffic and reader trust.

More than anything I prefer reader’s trust over the brand, and as a result I am no more publishing sponsored posts.

Have a great month ahead.

    Hi Nikhil,

    Nice to see you around. Thanks for your kind words, I agree that affiliate marketing is one of the best options to earn money online.
    I don’t use Google adsense on this blog, these profits are mainly from affiliate marketing.
    Thanks for your wishes. And thanks for commenting as well buddy.
