Bloggernoob is all growns up. You give birth to you baby blog and when you see it grow, it’s really satisfying. Last month, i changed gears with this blog. I took less paid posting gigs and focused more on private ad sales. As you will see below, i’ve double my last months private ad sales. Because i am doing less paid plugs, i don’t have to spend as much time on this blog. I still manage to post once a day, but in time, i’ll try to cut that down as well. The idea is to start off a blog with a lot of time invested. After your blog grows, you want to switch to auto pilot. You want to do that because you want to keep growing new websites.
The last two months have been busy for The Noob. I’ve managed to successfully launch another 50 websites. In those two months, i’ve managed to monetize some of those sites faster then i did with bloggernoob. In time, i think i will be making full time income with my collection of sites. If that happens, i can semi retire from real estate. I can invest and have other people draw up proformas for me. I’ve already made over $20,000.00 with my collection of websites and domains. Why don’t you stop reading useless “make money online” blogs like mine, and start setting up sites of your own.
This income report shows the total amount i made this blog. If you want to see how much i made last month, minus last month’s total with today’s total.
Paid Plugs– I will continue to cut down on these type of posts in the future. I think these programs are great for new blogs, but when your blog grows, you should find other means of monetization.
Payperpost– $2535.66 + 144 referrals($15 each) $2160.00 = $4,695.66
Smorty– $103.14 + 45 referrals($5 each) $210 = $328.14
Sponsoredreviews– $1980.90 + 100 blog referrals($10 each) $1000 + 7 advertiser referrals($25 each) $175 = $3,155.90
Affiliates– I’ll be working more on affiliate marketing with bloggernoob and my other sites. As you can see, i’m starting to work in other affiliate networks into my commission junction mix.
Commission Junction– $2,781.01
PPC/Signup Bonus/referrals/misc Still haven’t figured out PPC yet, but i plan on doing more research on this.
Project Wonderful– $14.17
BloggerNoob Ads– Because i want to build up the bloggernoob brand, i want to focus more on private ad sales. This form of monetization is the best kind. You don’t have to do much work and you get steady monthly income. If you ever plan on selling your blog, adsense income, affiliate income, and private ads income are the most important. If you sell $1000/month in private ads, your blog should fetch at least $15,000 when you sell it. Don’t worry tho, i don’t plan on selling bloggernoob. If i ever get bored with it, i’ll give this blog to my brother. Brothernoob will take over and i’ll guest post.
Private ads– 18 + 60 + 35 + 225 + 40 + 275 + 520 + 365 + 775 = $2313.00
I get a lot of emails asking me about my income. Let me address some of the FAQs. This income report is income from bloggernoob.com. I have a lot of other websites, but i don’t like to co-mingle funds or income reports. I have not received all of the referral payments yet. I get random emails from advertisers and sometimes i pursue advertisers to fill my private ads. I’d say it’s about 50-50. I spend around an hour to an hour and a half/day on bloggernoob dot com. I also make money with domain flipping as well. I wish i could report that income here, but i don’t think bloggernoob dot com has anything to do with those sales. It would be nice to add that in my income reports cause it would give this blog’s income a nice boost. My expenses are usually less then $200/month. I spend about $10/month for hosting, $10/year for the domain, and about $180 for advertising/contests/marketing. And YES, i make money with PORN. If you have any other questions, leave me a comment. I try to address all the emails i receive, but lately i’ve been getting swamped.
