Income Report – November 2015

Welcome to Income Mesh’s 11th income report.

I am writing these income reports each month so that I can track my traffic and income progress and so that you can learn from me, follow my steps and make money like I do.

What happened in November

November was actually quite fun month, a lot of new things happened, but one big thing marked it, and that was my first marketing giveaway.

It didn't go as planned, but was still profitable.

I will dedicate a full blog post about it where you will be able to find out all the juicy details.

One other cool thing happened in November, and that was Black Friday.

I wrote a nice article on how to increase your sales during the Black Friday weekend and make a lot of money.

Together with that article I also published an article with a few selected Black Friday deals. You can check them out again, but I think most of them expired by now.

So that was it, Black Friday, marketing giveaway and a couple of articles published. I didn't go through my $1000 goal this month, but I'll get there eventually (in 2016).

Traffic Statistics

This month traffic was a bit higher, due to some Facebook advertising, due to people sharing the giveaway and unfortunately due to some more Google Analytics spam.

But enough with the talking, let see some screenshots and real life data.

GA-November-October-2015-Comparison

As you can see, there was about 850 more visits this month, compared to October. A lot of that was due to my marketing giveaway and advertising on Facebook.

Everything else was worse than in October, but again, that's due to marketing giveaway where many people just landed on the page and leave it (those who didn't participate in the giveaway).

GA-Channels-Oct-Nov-Comparison-2015

Looking at the channel report we can see a small decrease in traffic coming from Google, but a huge increase from all other traffic sources.

To understand everything a bit better let's see what were my most visited pages in November 2015.

We can see a nice drop here unfortunately, most of the pages received less traffic in November than they did in October. That of course reflected on the sales too.

GA-Social-Oct-Nov-Comparison-2015

On the social report, as expected (because of the giveaway promotion) there was an increase on traffic coming from Facebook, but other than that, mostly less traffic coming from social networks (compared to October).

November was not especially good month from me, worse than I hoped but what can you do. I'll keep pushing forward.

My sales report below will tell you the same.

Income Report

This month I made just over $400, a bit depressing I know. That's also due to my work as a freelancer which took some time from this blog.

In 2016. I'll concentrate mostly on affiliate marketing and ditch as much freelancing as I can.

Revenue:

Thrive tools – $440.00 (see my Thrive Leads review here + my Thrive Content Builder review here)
10 Minute Funnels – $40.00

= $480

Expenses:

GetResponse – $13.55

Profit: $466.55

Wrapping it up

That's it guys for this year. Have fun celebrating, rest a bit, and come back even stronger in 2016, I know I will 🙂

Cheers,
Drazen

      Thanks Francisco, I appreciate your kind words.

      True, December ended up being a lot better (income wise), but I would like to have more stable income without those huge ups and downs. I’ll be working on that in 2016 🙂

  1. I think $400 in a month sounds awesome to everybody just starting out and making less than that currently!

    First time reader here and I love your blog theme and your content looks great. Keep it up!

      Hey Dave, welcome 🙂

      Love your products btw.

      Yeah, I remember when this blog started making $200, $300 per month, I was so excited. But in time you expect more and more I guess.. and making $400 doesn’t seem like a big deal anymore.

      I have a goal of making $1000 per month and when I reach it, and when I get to $1500 or $2000 per month, I’ll probably be disappointed if my income drops down to $1000/mo or less again.

      I believe it’s a change of mind and expectations. When you know you can do so much better you are not satisfied with the small things anymore 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing this. It is neat to see your traffic on the rise.

    I looked at your comparison chart. Click Funnels has a wordpress plugin.

    I would love to help out with any future articles that you need expert quotes, advice, or input.

    Keep up the great posts.

    Sincerely,

    Garret

      Hey Garret,

      Thanks for coming by 🙂

      I’ll update my articles these days with current info, for both ClickFunnels and other products.

  3. Pozdrav! 🙂
    I just stumbled upon your blog from I’m not sure where, too many open tabs 🙂 Glad to see someone from Croatia doing niche sites and that stuff. Have you ever used PBNs to rank faster/better?
    All the best and keep up the great work, will surely start following your blog!

      Hey Davore 🙂

      Thanks for the comment. Actually no, haven’t use PBNs yet, but plan to start using them on some upcoming niche sites I’m rolling out soon.

      If you have experience with PBNs feel free to get in touch through my contact form.

      Cheers
