Monthly Income, Growth & Traffic Report – October 2014

Monthly Income Report

This is the 6th income report on my blog. You can check out last month’s 5th income report here. This monthly report will show the progress of this blog as well as the results of other activities that I have carried out for the previous month.

What have I done in October ?

Daddy bonding time

I had a great bonding time with my daughter for 7-days-6-nights, while my wife went for a business trip. This was the first time I took care of her while my wife was not around. A major accomplishment completed! She also had bronchitis again in the 3rd week of October. All of these did not stop me creating online passive income. In fact, it created a stronger urge to have more passive income in times like this.

Part of the reason why my businesses still keep growing and operating while I’m not around is because of good system and communication. Special thanks to all my teammates for operating the businesses while I’m not around.

Joseph-Ho.com Progress

In October I published 5 blog posts on this blog :

 

As I enrolled this blog to the Mindware Recode program, I’m currently now in the 2nd week of the program. As expected, I get a lot of good feedbacks from the program. Here are the stats for this blog.

Compared to the last month, the number of session increased by 54% and number of users increased by 38%. Part of the reason is because I had been using some of the methods from the Mindware Recode, which can increase the traffic of blog.

Here are the top 10 contents of this blog.

Finally, this blog got the first earning in October 2014 for 10 bucks !

Authority Site ‘Ieatandeat.com’ Progress

I need to congratulate the EA (E-Alchemist) team who helps me in this project. We managed to break the record of hitting 100k sessions! The traffic had increased by 165% compared to September. The reason of the sudden increase is because one of our blog posts went viral on Facebook.

For the first time, the top traffic source is from the ‘social’ instead of ‘organic search’ in October. I will write another more detailed post on how we actually went viral later.

ieat oct 3In October, the authority site also broke the record of earnings. We’ve got the highest earning ever, $454.99. It seems like this experiment starts to pay off.

‘Ecommerce Flower’ Authority Site

My team and I went through the re-design of the site, then we saw a traffic increase which is close to 30%. The avg session also increased; a good sign that people are browsing the site to buy some flowers.

The top traffic came from the organic search. My team and I are now trying to increase the social traffic and referral traffic.

ecommerce oct 3The re-design of the website made a great boost in the conversation rate. It created $967.30 of revenue and $145.09 of profit. We got 9 sales in total for October.

Offline Business Progress

I separate the offline business E-Alchemists earning from the online earning. In October we had quite a number of projects coming in. Because of this blog, it managed to attract some talents joining my EA Team. I am truly grateful for their contributions.

In October, I launched a new SEO service which helps the Singapore’s property industry. If you work in the property business and need help in boosting your property business, you can check it out here.

Monthly Income Report & Expenses

Total income in October : $610.08

Web Hosting Expenses : $66 (I used VPS hosting)

MaxCDN : $27 monthly (I used this service to boost my website speed up to 80%) + $100 for 1 Terabytes bandwidth. An increase amount for MaxCDN in this month is due to the viral traffic.

Net profit : $417.08

Signing off

This concludes my 6th income report and I would love to hear your thoughts about it. For November I’m currently going through some major changes in my daily job and personal life. This will have an indirect impact on my EA business and online income. How about you? I look forward to receiving your comments & insights, and if possible, having a discussion with you.

  • $600 is great ….
    your authority site about food will it contain recipes too?
    my suggestion for it is to focus on products used for cooking then put some amazon links into it, make sure the product is a best seller and price starts at $100+
    focus on the cooking materials instead of the food

    Hi John,

    Recipes is next. I am currently working on combining another site that I had which is the recipes site into the food blog.

  • try reviewing products like knife, chopping board, skillets, pan, things that used for cooking …

  • wkhojoseph

    I will try that John!

  • wkhojoseph

    Sure thanks!

    Hey Joseph,

    Nice income report and congrats for seeing increase in traffic this last month.

    A total of $417.08 as net income is still big compare to others who are not making anything online.

    I wish you success in this new month.

    I can see 188 as your referral traffic, where are your top three sources of referral traffic?

    Take care and have a nice day ahead.

    I will share this on social media.

    Thanks
