Blog Income Report February 2018: $7,622.61
Welcome back to another Blog Income Report. Today we will take a look at Full-Time Job From Home’s income in February 2018.
If you’ve missed any of my past reports, here’s a link to all of my income reports.
February was another good month, but my income did drop quite a bit, more on this later. With that being said, I’m still happy with the income so I thought I’d share another income report and try to inspire you to Start Your Own Blog.
Below you’ll see the exact sites I’m promoting, a link to a review if I have one, how much I made, and a brief description.
Before we get started a few things to note. I started this site in 2013, so income like this didn’t happen overnight, it took a few years to start seeing a good income really, and it’s continued to grow from there. Also, you’ll see what I consider “extra income sites” on this list. Most of the income on this report is from referring others, I did not make over $100 scanning receipts or taking surveys just by myself.
Now that we have that out of the way, enjoy the income report and if you have any questions at all feel free to leave comments at the bottom of this page!
February 2018 Income Report Breakdown
Most of my income comes from affiliate marketing, and in my opinion, it’s the best way to monetize your blog. Below is the breakdown of the different sites/programs that I promote and how much I made from each. I’ve left links to full reviews of sites and a brief description of what the site is. Feel free to leave comments below if you have questions about a particular site.
Amazon – $24.39 (Amazon Affiliate Program)
Uber – $85.00 (Refer People to Drive For Uber)
ZipRecruiter – $74.93 (New Work From Home Job Leads)
PinterestVA – $62.40 (New Course on How To Work From Home as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant)
Total Affiliate Income: $5,963.41
Most of my income comes from Affiliate Marketing, but Ad Revenue is still a profitable way to monetize your blog. Here are the ad networks I use to put ads on my blog:
Monumetric – $1,564.93 (Main Ad Network Need Minimum 10K page views a month to apply)
Google Adsense – $70.84 (Google’s Ad Network. Available to New Bloggers)
Media.net – $23.43 (Bing/Yahoo Ad Network Accepts Most New Bloggers)
Total Ad Revenue: $1,659.20
February Income: $7,622.61
Compared To Last Month
Now let’s take a look at how the income compared to last month. Last month I made $13,841.39, so as you can see a big damn difference, which I was expecting.
Last month an app called Dosh blew up. They gave $15 per referral that downloaded the app, which made the app go viral. Luckily I had the top review, so I had a ton of traffic and made a ton of money off of referrals. In February they went back to their normal $5 per referral, so the hype stopped and not as many people were searching for the app.
I knew this would be the case, so I wasn’t surprised by the huge drop in income. I made over $4,000 with Dosh last month and only made $900 this month. Take into account the extra traffic that the post brought in due to it going viral and it all adds up.
I would love to say that I expected to make $13,000 again in February but knew that wasn’t obtainable.
Predictions For Next Month
After a slow February, I didn’t work much on my site, and that’s why I’m just now getting around to publishing an income report (now three months late.) So I actually already know the numbers for the next few months and they continue to go down a bit.
But if I look at my income over the last few years, January is always a high month then a decline over the next few months, and then everything starts to pick back up in July throughout the end of the year.
I wish I could say I maintained my high income, but that’s not the case over the next few months. I’m still making a substantial income with my blog but am ready for it to pick back up again!
