I'm so excited to share my very first online income report! YAY! Income reports have been so motivating for me and one of the reasons I wanted to start my blog.  It's not about the money.  It's about proving to myself that I can do it!  Creating a profitable online income stream is something I want to prove to myself and you!  These reports are going to keep me accountable and inspire me to work harder.  I hope they do the same for you! Its so important to have different streams of revenue.  I used to think the only way to earn more money was through a raise with my 9-5.  What I've learned over the past few months, is that diversifying your income stream is a great way to increase your income.  The internet makes this possible in a somewhat easy way.  I'm not saying its not a lot of work but I think its totally worth it.

I haven't monetized my blog yet, so all of my online income is currently coming from Google Adsense.  I monetized my youtube channel as soon as I was able to.  For those that don't know, when youtube videos are monetized, ads can run in the beginning, middle, or end of a video.  The youtube creator gets a portion of that ad fee that a company pays to google.  Youtube creators are not paid by subscriber count.  They are paid by number of views.  There is a VERY complicated algorithm that no one really understands except the people who wrote it....lol.

Lets look at the numbers:

Total views for the month of May increased by 21%, Average View duration increased by 5%, Watch time increased by 28%, and ad revenue increased by 20%.  AWESOME!

I went through a little slump in March and April on my channel.  I felt a sort of resurgence in May to really put forth a better effort to improve my channel and it really worked.

Here are some of the things that worked for me:

  • I started organizing my content and put myself on a schedule ( I love structure).
  • I started becoming really active on other channels.
  • I participated in a collab.

My total revenue for the month of May was $103.52!

I know its not much but you have to start somewhere and this is my start.  I'm so proud of myself and its definitely encouraging.

GOALS for June:

  1.  Increase my youtube income by 50% (I'm definitely on track)
  2. Create more pages in my blog and set a definite launch date.
  3. Start an ecourse about blog growth.

That's all folks!  Leave a comment down below if you post income reports on your blog.
