One of the most popular posts I publish are my income reports.
So I decided to round up as many income reports as possible and rank them based on earnings to see how I stack up against the rest.
If you publish an income report on your blog and would like it included in next month’s post then please let me know in the comments!
Here we go-
#1) LeavingWorkBehind.com – $7,977.67 (+$505.25)
Tom holds on to the top spot this month and has set up a swanky new office!
Interestingly he is starting to balance his working and personal life – something I’m working on as well after visiting Costa Rica which taught me a lot about ‘quality of life’.
Great to see he managed to do that while maintaining a nice increase in profit!
#2) TrueValhalla.com – $7,067.00 (+$4,844.00)
Matt was having a tough time the past couple of months with big spikes & drops in profits but this month he is riding a huge spike!
Great way to end your first full year in business!
The $10,000 month target still eludes him though – that makes two of us buddy!
#3) MatthewWoodward.co.uk – $6,060.41 (+$107.18)
I had a pretty busy month including a trip to Snowbombing & Costa Rica but still managed to drive a slight increase in profit.
I have a huge focus on growing readership and general brand awareness at the moment which comes at a cost.
I’ve got some exciting things coming in the next couple of months though – you guys will lose your s*** guaranteed!
#4) NerdyNomad.com – $5,008.00 (-$1,450.00)
Kirsty has decided to stop publishing income reports and her last one results in a respectable $5,008!
She doesn’t feel like her reports add much value to the readers and rarely has anything new to report on.
It’s a shame to see you stop publishing them – hopefully that will change again in the future =D It’s been great to follow you!
#5) ACoupleTravelers.com – $4,905.82 (+$1,520.82)
Dave & Vicky post a nice increase in profits this month after last month’s plateau.
They have started to integrate Twitter marketing into their efforts to grow followers. I’ve just sent you an email with a sick strategy for traffic ^^
Most of the revenue has come from direct advertising on the site and they are going to grow this further using this method.
#6) PinchOfYum.com – $3,291.46 (-$3,623.25)
While traffic has remained the same for the PinchOfYum team they have seen over a 50% drop in earnings.
One of the big reasons they noticed for this was the drop off in clicks after a redesign.
At the end of the report you’ll see what the problem was and exactly how they have tried to fix it – good stuff!
#7) MakeMoneyOnlineHQ.com.au – $2,158.25 (+$553.95)
A new comer to the list Greg has published a few income reports with steady growth.
His earnings are made up from a range of niche sites but most of the money comes from direct advertising sales.
Hopefully Greg continues to see steady growth next month as well!
#8) FallForDesign.com – $1,233.47 (+$217.62)
Nice to see my blog is up there in the top 10 traffic sources this month =D
Interesting use of colour theory with Etsy to boost your earnings in less than a week as well!
#9) MoneyHomeBlog.com – $1,049.26 (-$626.23)
Woohoo you finally published an about me page and we can reveal this super-secret bloggers identity as Ceejay Joe!
He has had a lot of problems with hosting this month and it sounds like he has had a terrible experience with WPHosting. Sorry to hear that!
Now all that’s dealt with though he can focus on bringing home the bacon!
#10) My4HrWorkWeek.com – $967.02 (-$1,165.50)
Last month Eric achieved his personal target so it’s a shame to see such a heavy drop for him this month.
He was expecting to have a tougher time in April though as his attention was divided with tax season.
With a new focus and drive to put more time into his online business instead of enjoying the passive income – I’m expecting some exciting things from Eric soon :)
#11) BitDoze.com – $808.83 (+$127.53)
Dragos continues on the growth trend this month posting a small increase in profits.
Looks like he has a busy month ahead of him with a wedding to boot as well!
He saw a slight drop off in traffic and also wrote less posts but still manage to post an increase in profit – winner!
#12) HowIGotRich.net – $772.00 (-$958.00)
Joe saw a huge spike in earnings last month which has tailed off this month.
Even with the drop this month he is still doing very well when you look at previous months of $552, $323 & $334 respectively.
This month though all of that is going to change as he tries to break the $1,500 barrier again, good luck sir!
#13) AvocadoPesto.com – $669.00 (-$958.00)
A big drop from Vicky (one half of ACoupleTravelers) this month in both earnings & traffic.
They had a record breaking month last month but seem to have hit a ceiling when it comes to traffic.
Have you considered compiling a recipe book for your readers as an income stream?
#14) INeedDiscipline.com – $652.04 (+$66.70)
After a drop last month, Dean has managed to turn things around with a slight increase.
He realised in past reports he was slacking off and is now riding a new wave of motivation for his work.
Nice to see my site is a key traffic driver for him at the moment – earn a higher spot on this list and I’ll send you some more ^^
#15) ChaseToOneMillion.com – $526.62 (+$80.48)
Tim is another newcomer to the list this month posting a small increase in profits.
His blog has shown healthy growth over the past few months and has managed to double his income in a couple of months.
Keep it coming – let’s see you off the bottom spot next month!
There has been a total of $43,416.99 earnt between all of the bloggers on this list, up by $1,469.13 from last months $41,947.86.
So while there have been a few heavy hits – as a team we are still looking good ^^
