Another month has flown by in our never-ending quest of making a full-time income online. I’m actually very pleased with my results this month as I almost broke the $2,000 profit barrier even after spending over $1,000 building my business. Plus, with the Thanksgiving holiday business can be a bit slow during the end of the month, so considering that I did very well.
On another side note, I made almost $800 more this month than I did a year ago last November.
So what happened this month?
November was a month of testing. I spent a total of $980 buying 26 solo ads from 25 different sellers. Instead of buying large amounts, I bought batches of 100 clicks from each of them to test their traffic out before investing more. I’m doing this in order to get the most new subscribers for my money when I buy larger batches of clicks in December. My plan is to spend at least $2,000 this month on solo ads to keep my business growing and growing.
From the solo ads I bought in October and November I’ll buy larger batches from the solo ads that resulted in new subscribers at $.50 per subscriber or less. Theoretically this means that if the traffic performs the same as it did in the smaller buy that I should be able to add 3,000 new subscribers to my list for $1,500. If each subscriber brings in $.30 per month in profit then I’ll be spending $1,500 for a $900/month income addition. Would you pay $1,500 for a $900/month income stream?
Now do I think I’ll see $900 in increased revenue immediately and like clockwork? Nope, but even if it was a third of that, just $300, I’d still pay $1,500 for $300/month in increased income…no hesitation.
But how will my income increase from new subscribers?
1. Affiliate income.
2. Buyers of my products
3. Coaching clients

An Extra Income Stream on Fiverr
You may have noticed that I earned $484 from Fiverr this month. I’ve been working on a simple method of getting the most for my time and gigs on Fiverr so I can make a true business out of it. If enough of you are interested I’ll release a course about how I’m using Fiverr to make some decent side money. I’m really excited about this as I’m always after finding ways I can make some extra income in my spare time.
What to expect from me in December?
I have a few courses that I’ve completed that I need to launch. I haven’t decided how I’m going to release them yet. Most likely I’ll release them locally to my audience first and then let affiliates promote. Time will tell.
And of course I’ll be buying solo ads. You should expect this month to be a huge solo ad buying month.
