I’ve been waiting for the right time to put out this income report this month, but life has been getting in the way. I also didn’t just want to throw it up there, since, well, it’s my 2nd BEST income report of all time. I mean, there needs to be some sort of a celebration:
Ok, enough of that 😉
Why was it such a great month?
It’s no secret that I make most of my money from the commissions I receive from interviewing people about their upcoming product launches. I think the biggest change I’ve made in my business over that last few months is that I’ve made it a point to be on top of the upcoming hot launches and offer my audience timely discounts and bonuses when I can.
You’ve probably also noticed that instead of just publishing an interview I also publish a review along with it. I don’t know HOW many emails I’ve received complimenting me on my reviewing style. Most people seem to like that fact that I give a preview of the sales page and product without a “pushy” you-have-to-buy-it attitude. It seems to have resonated with a lot of people.
I also have been building my email list by putting bonuses in the download areas of the people I interview. Most guests are more than happy to let me acquire some of their leads to my email list, especially since they know that I’m going out of my way to do an interview AND a review for their product. It goes to show you just how important building quality relationships is when building a business in any niche.
What’s in store for April?
If I had written this a little earlier I would have been able to guess, but since I’m writing this at the end of April it’s a bit silly to “guess”. I will, however, let you know that April is also going to be a good month, but I’m getting that feeling in me again where I want to start investing money back into my business. I don’t want all of my eggs in one basket and I need to keep developing in order to take my business to the next level.
What will I be investing in?
My primary interests are list building, product creation, affiliate marketing, and Facebook marketing. I’m currently trying to find a way to use them all together in order to build my email list up another 10,000 subscribers to 20,000 subscribers by the end of 2014. I think that the only way to do that will be to massively scale through paid advertising…and I’m prepared to do it.
I’m going to keep this income report short, as I’ll be having another one coming out in the next week or so. As always, I want to thank YOU all for watching my interviews and reviews and occasionally buying products and courses through my affiliate links. Without you I’d have nothing to write here 🙂
