Income Report Roundup – November 2015

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) MakingSenseOfCents.com – $31,782.00 (+$2,952.00)

MakingSenseofCentsIt’s been a great month for income for Michelle as she continued to manage a great work life balance.

She had a great time on the road travelling highway 101 and working from an RV every day and is working towards her goal of writing a book.

She’s feeling great after working ahead and pre-scheduling all of her blog posts for November and continues to aim to promote more particularly on Pinterest.

#2) PinchOfYum.com – $26,003.84 (-$7,356.98)

PinchOfYumLindsay & Bjork are switching up their give and take balance this month.

They have closed sign ups for Food Blogger Pro while they focus on delivering quality content and plan to reopen the option to sign up and switch back to “asking season” in 5-6 months.

They recently hosted an AMA chat focusing on blogging and will be donating a portion of this month’s income to a project which provides a complete holiday meal for hungry families.

#3) MatthewWoodward.co.uk – $25,024.85 (+$815.23)

Matthew WoodwardThis has been one of the most hectic months I’ve ever had as I spent all month preparing and releasing my free video training.

After a heavy workload with next to no time off I’m really looking forward to some relaxation once November is out of the way.

As one door closes another opens though, and my next big project is going to include huge changes on the blog that are long overdue!

#4) AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com – $18,351.00 (-$9,566.00)

AuthorityWebsiteIncomeJon spent this month pushing the pace of his Amazon FBA business and is happy to report that it’s all set to fully capitalise on the holiday season.

His successes this month include having a clear goal for his business laid out and getting lots of content up on his Amazon sites ready for the christmas rush.

His main goal going forward is to cut back on expenses and control costs better while really pushing the last months of the year to increase his income numbers!

#5) JustAGirlAndHerBlog.com – $14,652.00 (-$931.00)

JustAGirlAndHerBlogAbby spent most of October dedicated to the launch of her latest product.

After getting a lot of questions about how to find time for product creation she decided to go into the topic in this month’s income report.

She encourages readers to create helpful products for their audience as selling her own products has been a major game changer for the business.

#6) TrueValhalla.com – $10,022.00 (+$3,257.00)

TrueValhallaMatt was excited to launch the secret project he’s been working on recently, his new book ‘Learn To Make Games’ as well as achieving a five figure month!

He sold lots of HTML5 games in October with demand soaring as predicted for the holiday season and sales of his updated book were strong.

Despite a huge workload he still made time to design several new games including an experimental high-budget game in development and is expecting book sales to become a more consistent source of his online income.

#7) Untemplater.com – $6,941.00 (+$3,931.00)

untemplaterAfter feeling disheartened by September’s results Sydney is happy to report that October was a totally different story, coming just shy of her best months earnings!

After chasing up the client she secured a statement of work with last month with no success she’s written this off as a bad experience and says the pros of contracting outweigh the cons.

She was relieved to see traffic recover form the unexplained dip she experienced in September and actually returned to work for a former employer negotiating a better salary for herself in the process!

#8) MyTanFeet.com – $6,652.13 (+$1,052.02)

MyTanFeetYeison & Samantha had a great time in Thailand participating in TBEX Asia this month and were included in the Expeditioner’s top 50 travel blogs list.

They have just started to build a new theme and layout for the site from scratch and are planning to re-write their newsletters while Samantha continues work on her eBook.

They’re also looking forward to visiting an area they haven’t been to yet this month in the Osa Peninsula.

#9) DigitalNomadWannabe.com – $5,708.00 (+$578.00)

digitalnomadWith her best month so far for income Sharon also had what she describes as her biggest personal success yet in her presentation at TBEX Asia.

Her income this month increased in all areas except amazon and she had an increase on the list of Top 50 Travel Blogs based on traffic.

Going forward she’s getting ready for another busy couple of months travelling before heading back to Australia.

#10) MissBiziBee.com – $4,771.91 (+$2,071.89)

bizziKaitlin’s celebrating her best month so far this month and setting records across the board for traffic, Etsy and Amazon earnings.

With traffic up 23% she started October with a bang and a mountain of Etsy orders totalling £774 in just one day! Etsy continues to be her biggest driver but Amazon affiliate earnings also reached new highs this month.

Although she saw a lot of the revenue this month was driven by Halloween she’s happy to report Amazon earnings coming from posts written months ago!

#11) DumbPassiveIncome.com – $1,652.90 (+$334.36)

DumbPassiveIncomeMatt is reporting a very good month in October, having spent most of his time working on his ‘one thing’ website which is earning very little, his passive income still continued to flow.

Traffic on Dumb Passive Income continued to grow and he’s been working on a lead magnet for his Amazon affiliate site and focusing on growing an email list.

He’s excited about the possibilities that come with having his email list and the potential of the niche itself!

#12) IncomeMesh.com – $948.10 (+$620.40)

incomemeshIt’s been Drazen’s best month for income so far this month and he says his biggest game changer has been an increase in social traffic.

After originally hitting his target of $1000 he was dissapointed to lose some commissions due to a refund bringing him just below his goal.

He says he still isn’t spending as much time as he should on promoting content on social networks but speculates that if your content is good then the shares come naturally.

#13) MyPathToPassiveIncome.com – $92.05 (+$57.23)

mypathtopassiveincomeAnother best month for Esteban as his site continues to grow and he has seen almost 50% more sessions, users and pageviews in October.

He focused his time this month on boosting his social media engagement and also picked up a few jobs on Fiverr.

His goals moving forward include guest posting for two different blogs, reaching 100 email subscribers and reaching $100 profit to move into those triple figures.

#14) OneHourProfessor.com – -$547.46 (-$935.16)

ohpOctober was one of the most expensive months for Ron with costs exceeding income as he hired video editors and transcribers and worked hard to finish his new course.

He also created a free mini course while adding everything on Udemy too and reveals that most of his time went into building the sales funnel after underestimating the work required.

He’s hoping to see lots of extra income in November for his efforts and going forward will be working on reducing costs, guest blogging and possibly redesigning the site.

In Summary

We’ve had no change in the line up with no newcomers again this month.

The month’s total has risen $3,073.99 to $148,682.32 as the spending season starts to draw in with a number of the featured sites here reporting their best months earnings so far.

With a mix of growth, record setting and investment this month it will be interesting to see how sales improve for everyone next month, especially with Black Friday coming up fast!

If you feel inspired to start your own blog then why don’t you start a blog now? It only takes a few minutes!

Performance Tracking

I only include the earnings history of the top 10 blogs each month to make the graphs easy to read.

I’m having a problem with the graph right now and will update the post when fixed

    You make money selling selling people s*** then brag about it… I make more money doing actual SEO and tell no one… Because I don’t want to try and sell them a bunch of bullshit software they dont need for 20k a month

    Hi Matthew!

    I love your income report roundup post! It is a good idea, many of the bloggers you include are in my list of favourite bloggers.

    If you like to include my income reports for your next month you can find them in my blog http://passiveincomewise.com/monthly-income-reports/

    I am not making as much money as most of the bloggers in your list but next month I will give a surprise!

  4. Travis

    Look like the OneHourProfessor guy should have just used the new Kajabi platform in order to save on costs. Anyone having success with it?

      Glad you liked it!

  6. Stefan

    Hey Matthew, I really wish you could add some non IM related blogs to this list. Almost all of these blogs make money by selling hosting, blogging advice, how to make money ebooks etcpp…

    It’d be great to see if this success does persist in other niches too :-).

      The top earning blog for the past 2 years is in a niche that everyone says you can’t make a lot of money in…

      Not too shabby right :)

  14. Untemplater

    Thanks for the mention! October was definitely a nice bump up for me. I haven’t run my November numbers yet, but I worked a lot of extra consulting hours so I’m hopefully I should have another another positive month to report soon. Glad to see a lot of others had strong October earnings too! Let’s keep the momentum going!

      Well things can get tricky in some niches over the Christmas period so buckle in, it’s going to be a ride either way!

    Hi Matthew,
    You are saying that there are no newcomers in the income roundup post… and I wonder if I can change that :) I have recently published my 3d income report: http://livingoffcloud.com/my-monthly-income-report-november-2015-2/
    and I would love to be a part of the next month’s post.
    Looking forward to your reply! :)

    Thanks, Nadya
