June Income Report for Bloggers
It’s official, I’ve been sharing my income report for bloggers for 1 year now! Woohoo! Originally, I planned on only sharing it until last December, and then it was a year. I’m at the year mark and I’d like to continue until December. I’ll re evaluate it then and see if I want to continue. If you like these reports: share it and let me know in the comments!
The time of lower income has hit, and I’m totally okay with that. Last month was insane (I made over 12,000!) but I also received a big cheque earlier than expected. It’s the middle of July as I write this, and I don’t have much planned (sponsored post wise) for the summer.
You know what else? I love it. I have been exhausting myself trying to get it all done, and I need this break. Stacie and I are working so hard on Click Start Club and getting the courses out there for your guys (we’re launching Editing with Photoshop and Editing with Lightroom on Monday, July 24th!). So in addition to getting ready for our launch, I’m cooking recipes I want to share (with no pressure) and writing blogging tips to go on the Click Start Club blog.
If you like reading income reports, please take a look at this post I wrote a few weeks ago: What You Don’t See In Blogger’s Income Reports.
Businessese: I heard about Businessese on a podcast and made a note to check them out. I purchased their Closing Strong course, which includes the most amazing reporting spreadsheet to show you your click per engagement and reach %. I highly recommend this course, it’s a low cost and you get amazing templates out of it that could help you build your relationship with the people you work with. Plus it’s amazing for your own knowledge! I also received their Disclaimer template in the Ultimate Work at Home Bundle I bought.
SEMRush: I have been using SEMrush to help me find keywords for blog posts and digging dipper into my blog. It’s not cheap, but I’ll keep paying for it for a few more months.
Evernote: After taking the course, The Paperless Home, I purchased Evernote and have been using it as a digital filing cabinet.
The Paperless Home: I’m sick of all the paper, so I purchased The Paperless Home and am learning a new system to get rid of all the receipts all over the house!
Making Sense of Affiliate Income: I enrolled in this course to help me strengthen my affiliate income game.
Ultimate Work at Home Bundle: This bundle is now closed, but I purchased this bundle because for such a low price I got so many resources! I’m super excited to say that I’ll be promoting (and involved in) the health bundle coming up in September!
Site Audit: I did something a little pricey this month, I hired out a site audit. It’s a goal of mine to improve my SEO so I wanted an expert to help guide me.
