Finally! The last bit of information I needed from my online marketing efforts came available and I was able to update my earnings for the month of August. I did pretty well – in fact, I made $600 more than my July online earnings of $1609.08.
My Clickbank sales weren’t as good (but they will be WAY better for September!), but my adsense earnings were up a healthy amount.
The big thing that happened in August is that I have freelanced my services out to a online marketing group. I spend about 15-20 hours per week working for them. What do I do? THAT is the beauty of it! I do the same things for them as I do for myself – plus, I get to learn so much from their years of experience from internet marketing. It’s been really great and I have to admit, I am enjoying it tremendously.
However, my time spent on these other projects shows in my lower earnings from Associate Content. I just haven’t had the time to submit as many articles as I used to. However, I have 2 articles on AC that are really kicking butt with page views – and I LIKE that!
All in all, August was a good month. I know September earnings will be even better. I discovered a little thing called niche blogging – and honey, niche blogging is the where it’s at!
I have found some super little niche keywords and clickbank products to go with them. Using free Blogger blogs, I am making some good money. My Clickbank earnings so far for September are already more than all of August combined. Makes me laugh when I realize I spent a whopping $4.97 for a niche blogging system that was magic!
What really tickles me (that is a Southern expression, sorry), is that before mid-February of this year, I had no clue what Internet Marketing was, what anchor text was, what Clickbank was…heck, I didn’t even know a thing about keyword research. I knew NOTHING. (Ok, I did know how to send and receive email…you caught me. ha!) And today, I get to report to the world that I made over $2200 online last month.
It’s a damn good feeling.
Yes, I worked my butt off. Yes, I crammed every teeny tiny morsel of information into my brain til I thought I would explode….but it is really happening.
I’ve had some dis-believers say – “Sure you made $2200 online – but how much did it COST you to make that????”
I will list out my monthly expenses…ready?
I pay about $12 a month for a website…and $19.95 a month for an aweber auto responder account.
I need a website to sell my Squidoo Profit System and other ebooks – and there is no way I would make a single web page online without building a list. Aweber autoresponder is AWESOME, and I wouldn’t work online without it.
Whew – that was a long list, huh? Now, I also spend maybe $50 a month on other products to review or for my own education so I guess we can safely say I have about $100 a month in over-head.
Tell me one other way to earn a living that costs that little? Even a “real job” requires more than that in gas each month! Let alone clothes, lunches, etc.
Yup, it’s been hard work – but I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Have a great day!

It’s my first time on your blog and I’m loving it already although I’ve long heard of you . I actually came here after someone told me about your ‘one week marketing plan’. I’m quite sold to what I’ve read here so far. I’ll be sticking around this blog for some time this weekend that’s for sure.
