Blog Income Report March 2018: $6,006.13
Welcome to another blog income report, we will be looking at Full-Time Job From Home’s income in March 2018. If you’ve missed any reports in the past, you can see all of my blog income reports here.
March was another good month, but my income did decrease from last month and the big month in January. I knew this was probably going to happen (more on this later) and I haven’t worked on my site much the last few months, so it was not a huge surprise.
Below is a breakdown of my income from each site I promote in March. I’ve left a link to the site, my review if I have one, how much I made in March and a brief description of each. If you have any questions feel free to leave comments below and I can pretty much explain how I promote any company on this list.
Before we get started, a few things to note. I started this blog in December 2013, and it took a while to start seeing a decent income. Income like this doesn’t happen overnight, it takes a lot of time and hard work to make it happen, but once you get it going, it can turn into a large passive income.
Also, you’ll see sites on this list that I consider “extra income” where I’ve made several hundred dollars this month. Most of the income is from referring others, not from only earning myself. I only promote sites that I use and trust, but a huge income from these sites isn’t realistic unless you’re referring 100’s of members each month!
Now that we have that out of the way, here’s my income for March 2018.
March 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 – $14.92 (Amazon Affiliate Program)
ZipRecruiter – $85.29 (New Work From Home Job Leads)
PinterestVA – $32.40 (New Course on How To Work From Home as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant)
Total Affiliate Income: $4,538.46
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 – $1,365.40 (Main Ad Network Need Minimum 10K page views a month to apply)
Google Adsense – $79.66 (Google’s Ad Network. Available to New Bloggers)
Media.net – $22.61 (Bing/Yahoo Ad Network Accepts Most New Bloggers)
Total Ad Revenue: $1,467.67
March Income: $6,006.13
Income Compared To Last Month
Before we compare income to last month, let’s talk about a new site on this month’s income report called ProofreadAnywhere. It’s a work from home course that teaches you how to create your own WAH proofreading side gig and how to find high paying clients. Make sure to check it out here!
Now let’s compare this month to February’s income. In February I brought in $7,622.61, so my income did decrease by about $1,600 in March.
It looks likes Dosh, the app that went viral in January, did pay $15 per referral for the first few weeks of February. My income was $905 in February and dropped all the way down to $125 in March when they only paid $5 per referral, and most of the viral hype was gone.
Along with the change with Dosh, traffic was down site-wide during the month of March, so that makes up for the rest of the loss of income from February to March.
Predictions For Next Month
Again, I’m posting this income report a few months behind so I already know my income for April, and it’s another decrease which is unfortunate but I literally haven’t worked on my site at all the last few months so what can I expect.
As I’ve mentioned in the last few reports, March, April, May seem to be slower months over the last few years so as I get back into the swing of things with posting content hopefully I start to see growth over the next few months.
How To Start A Blog
It can be discouraging seeing your blog income go down, but as I’ve mentioned, I haven’t really spent any time working on the site over the last few months and have still been able to make $6,000-$8,000 passively with work that I’ve done over the last few years.
That’s really the best thing about having a blog, even if you don’t have time to work on your site now the work you’ve done in the past is still earning you money!
If you have any interest in a passive income like this, I highly recommend starting a blog and checking out Wealthy Affiliate. It’s a blogging course and community and is where I learned how to create a website, create content, drive traffic to my site, and make money.
