Read this article till the end, i explain everything in detail of all my income sources.

Whats the purpose of this income report?

I am not writing this income report to brag or showcase my achievements, the main purpose is to educate you about the huge potential of making money online.

In this article, i will be sharing with you my income proofs, statistics of my websites, mistakes that i made and my future plans.

So let's get started.

Here is the graph of my monthly income:

December was the most profitable month for me up till now. 

At the start of this year my target was to reach Rs 10 Lacs/month by December 2018, its good to see that i was able to double my goal.

Here is my Google analytics snapshot for the month of December 2018.

There was a couple of drops in traffic, its because of jealousy..

Since my website is becoming a big authority in its niche, someone (any of my competitor) might have gotten scared and started building spammy back links to my site and hence there were few drops.

How i removed these links and not get a penalty from google, i shared that in the video above so do check it out.

As you can see in the image above, majority of the traffic is coming from Google (organic traffic) which is free.

This is the reason why majority of my revenue is profit as the cost to drive traffic to my site is ZERO.

Now i will be sharing with you the Google Webmaster data for the site.

Google webmaster traffic was also consistent apart from the few drops because of spammy backlinks created by my competitors.

Note: I wont be disclosing the niche of the site, URL or affiliate network names . This is because in early 2017 i disclosed one of my profitable affiliate site to my Facebook group and within next three months atleast 20 replicas of my site were created and twice my website was hacked. I lost a lot of money just because i decided to disclose the website name.

I maintain an excel sheet to track my income for each of the affiliate network used on the site, i am sharing a screenshot of the same (i add the approx. figure for each network):

In total i made approximately Rs 22,08,963 in December (Not exact figure as there might be few refunds, chargebacks for a couple of affiliate networks and also the currency conversion rate from dollar to INR changes a lot)

So lets discuss each income source one by one.

#1. Gumroad

I was successfully able to increase my Gumroad earnings this month.

Made close to $5,000, in which $897 was recurring revenue. So creating a membership based product helped a lot in creating a regular supply of income each month.

Also i created few more products and promoted more aggressively through email list and on the site.

I think i am achieving the maximum potential of sales and hence wont be focusing on Gumroad in the coming months.

#2. My biggest affiliate network

This was my most profitable month using this affiliate network.

Even last month this network formed the biggest share of my revenue, but this month the growth was amazing. 

This was because there was a special offer being promoted on this network. 

The offer was that if you were able to increase your December's earnings by 50% compared to November then the network will give 50% extra as bonus. 

Because of this offer i was able to get $2350 more as bonus. Along with that i also got more conversions and hence made more money from this network.

But one thing concerns me, that since this network is around 40% of my revenue, i dont want to be so dependent on one network and hence would try to diversify my income sources a lot more in coming months.

Expenses:

  • Primary expenses for November were:
  • Hosting: $100/month  (i am using Siteground Cloud hosting, i increased my RAM of the server and hence the increased cost of extra $20)
  • Softwares: Approximately Rs 50,000-60,000 (full list of softwares i use is in my tools page)
  • Content/articles for various sites: Approx Rs 1,00,000. Almost all our content requirements are done now, so this expense will stop from next month. 
  • Virtual assistants: Approximately Rs 50,000. Primary expense was the addition of the amazon affiliate article to the site, formatting it, adding images etc. Also i hired 3 video editors who will be helping me in editing the videos of my upcoming free digital marketing course.

Plans for January:

  • Complete
