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).
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.
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).
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.
- Home page – 876 visits (951 in October)
- The Ultimate Guide to Landing Page Builders (Review & Comparison, Hands-on) – 666 visits (480 in October)
- 3 Ways to get Premium Stock photos for FREE! –545 visits (713 in October)
- Marketing Bundle Giveaway – 477 visits
- How to Become a WordPress List Building Superhero and Double Your Conversions Today –448 visits (489 in October)
- Pinterest Traffic: 7 Bloggers Reveal How To Get 100k Visits from Pinterest (Per Month) – 248 visits (715 in October)
- How to Increase Affiliate Sales on Black Friday – 243 visits
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.
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.
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.
