April was a GREAT month!

I’m really happy with my results for April. I think that I’ve been able to show that the interview method is a proven way to create both value AND profits. I’ve also been able to create tons of relationships that are INVALUABLE in themselves. I know that you’re following me so that you too can learn how to make money online, so as promised in my previous Income updates, I’ve got an interview course in the works so that you too can learn how to make a living doing interviews.

Adsense sites almost all sold

As mentioned last month, I’ve decided to move on from creating Adsense niche sites for the time being. That’s not to say that I won’t create them again in the future, but for the time being I’m going to focus on interviewing and creating products. I was able to sell almost $1,000 in niche sites in April, and I still have a few left for those interested HERE.

Kindle course almost complete

Last month I mentioned that I was working on a Kindle book creation course with Thomas Strock from MobileAppTycoon.com. Well, Thomas put together a FANTASTIC video course for me in a couple of days on EXACTLY how he’s able to get Kindle eBooks created and ranking in Amazon so that they consistently make him money every month. I followed his course carefully and recorded my progress and steps as I did what he said in the course. I’m really happy to announce that the first book that I’ve had written is already ranking #1 for it’s keyword in Amazon and has made over $50 this month already. It’s also ranking in the top 30,000 eBooks on Kindle!

Of course I’ll be sharing all this with you soon enough, but I want to make sure the whole product is READY and fine-tuned before we release it to the public. I want to make sure that you too can follow along and get the same results that I did.

Product launching course underway

I’ve been wanting to launch a product for the longest time, but I keep getting caught up on the little things. I wanted to launch my products the RIGHT WAY…meaning that I don’t want to make a big mistake that’s going to sabotage my success. So I got an idea. Why not interview ten product launching experts about their product launching process? I’ve already got a lot of connections from interviewing over 100 successful entrepreneurs, so why not leverage those connections and really find out what it takes to launch a product?

Well, I’ve taken action and I’ve interviewed five EXPERT product creators so far in order to create an AMAZING resource to help both me and YOU launch products. I’m planning on using the knowledge that I take from the interviews to create a step by step guide to launching a product in the best way possible. I’ll also be documenting the launch of THAT product through screen capture videos so you can watch over my shoulder as I go through the whole launching process. I really think that this is going to help a lot of people who have been on the fence about launching a product because they weren’t sure just how to do it.

I’ll be announcing more about this course as I work towards its completion.

And that’s it, folks. I’m writing this income report halfway through May, and I don’t expect May’s income report to be as impressive as April’s, but I’m really excited about the future of The Mike From Maine Show. I’m looking forward to learning more and helping you all overcome the boundaries that we all face when building a business.

Thanks for watching!

Nice month Mike! Surprised the love claw interview with Chris Munch didn’t generate more income for you because that was a quality interview and a great product. Loved the great mix of useful info in the interview combined with the promotion of that product.

    Greg,

    I was surprised as well. For some reason it just didn’t resonate with my audience, and that’s ok. I’m able to learn more each time by how many views each interview gets, how many people open the emails promoting them, and then by how many people buy as to WHAT you all are interested in.

    Of course, I also appreciate comments on what you want here.

Hey Mike,

Really good to see the green number. Your strategy is really cool. Great move to reduce dependence on Google and its mood swings (updates).

Cheers,

    Pritam,

    I also like seeing that green number 🙂 Relying on Google for traffic and income was always really stressful for me. I’m glad that I’m building a different kind of business.

Hey mate, its great to see someone guiding others in educating what actually helps generating revenues on the internet !!

    Mike From Maine - June 5, 2013

    Thanks, Kedar. I think way too many people are secretive about their sources of income. Let’s change that together.

    Thanks, buddy. I’m happy to be in your ear.

    I’d also like the income to be a bit higher, but these things happen over time. Stay tuned.
