Whats the purpose of this income report?

I am not writing this income report to brag or showcase my achievements, the main purpose is to educate you about the huge potential of making money online.

In this article, i will be sharing with you my income proofs, statistics of my websites, mistakes that i made and my future plans.

So let's get started.

Here is the graph of my monthly income:

Finally revenue in May increased by a significant amount.

This increase was not because of increase in traffic, but rather because of adding a new affiliate program which is paying us good money.

Here is my Google analytics snapshot for the month of May 2019.

The traffic stayed the same. 

I am trying so hard to find time for this site (i can see so many opportunities to increase its SEO traffic) but every month i get busy in focusing on our Youtube channel and creating new free courses.

Will surely try to take out 2 days every week for this site in June.

Google webmaster traffic also remained the same like the last month.

Note: I wont be disclosing the niche of the site, URL or affiliate network names . This is because in early 2017 i disclosed one of my profitable affiliate site to my Facebook group and within next three months atleast 20 replicas of my site were created and twice my website was hacked. I lost a lot of money just because i decided to disclose the website name.

I maintain an excel sheet to track my income for each of the affiliate network used on the site, i am sharing a screenshot of the same (i add the approx. figure for each network):

In total i made approximately Rs 22,85,392 in May (Not exact figure as there might be few refunds, chargebacks for a couple of affiliate networks and also the currency conversion rate from dollar to INR changes a lot, and also few figures are approximations instead of exact amount)

So lets discuss each income source one by one.

#1. Gumroad

Gumroad revenue is decreasing because we have unpublished many products from that platform.

It seems this trend will continue for coming few months.

#2. My biggest affiliate network

This one has always been my most profitable affiliate network for many months now.

Revenue for May increased by few hundred dollars.

Did you watch my entire  free digital marketing course?

#3. Subscription based affiliate network

Not much has changed in our next network as well, revenue remained consistent.

#4. Other networks

One more network:

For my next network i will have to take out some time in june.

The drop in ranking from #3 to #5 is impacting a lot in revenue (by almost $1000) so will be focusing on getting this article back to #3 position.

I received some money in paypal as well (gumroad also sends the payment to paypal)

Also i got 5 sponsored post/reviews opportunities last month, that brought extra an ~$800

Another network that is giving fairly consistent revenue:

This month for sure we will be doing a lot in our various amazon affiliate sites, i have built a team 4 people, and they are working the entire month in scaling the sites.

So you will be seeing a lot of case studies as well in coming months.
