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 ?
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.
In October I published 5 blog posts on this blog :
- Case Study – Keyword Research For Penguin Penalized Site
Case Study – Recovering a Penguin Penalized Site
How My Authority Site Broke a 5000 Visitors Record
Power Suggest Pro Review
Why Will Private Blog Network Still Continue to Work?
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.
Top rank 1 of traffic source is social !
I had also launched my Amaterasu private blog network service on this blog,
This blog had also been featured on 28 Expert Bloggers Reveal Their #1 Content Marketing Technique.
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.
‘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.
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
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.
