Welcome to Income Mesh’s 10th 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 was I doing in October
Wow, October was really, really good month for me. The best month (income wise) so far.
I almost got to my first $1000 per month, I was so close, but a bit of bad luck stopped me to get there. I’ll explain how a bit further down this article.
Both of the article, and especially the one related to Pinterest are responsible for a bit higher traffic this month.
Let’s see all this in more details so we can understand better why and how did traffic increased, and why my sales went so high this month.
October was extremely good in terms of traffic (jk), but still, 500 more visits than the previous month. that's not a lot, but it is something.
What's more important is the 19% increase in page views. I guess people liked what they've read and continued to explore Income Mesh to find some more interesting articles.
Besides that everything else was in “green”, meaning it was better than in September.
Those spiked in the second half of the month were there because I published Pinterest article which got a lot of traffic.
Now let's see the channel report.
That's the place where I can actually see from which sources I got the traffic, and I am especially interested to see how my organic (Google) traffic performed.
The biggest game changer here is the social traffic increase. That's because my Pinterest traffic article got very well accepted on, well, Pinterest itself.
Other than that, there was a nice increase in direct and organic traffic, but concerning downfall in referral and email traffic.
Let's see how did this affect my articles and which page was the best in October:
- Home page – 951 visits (992 visits in September)
- Pinterest Traffic: 7 Bloggers Reveal How To Get 100k Visits from Pinterest (Per Month) – 715 visits
- 3 Ways to get Premium Stock photos for FREE! – 713 visits (637 visits in September)
- How to Become a WordPress List Building Superhero and Double Your Conversions Today – 489 visits (454 visits in September)
- The Ultimate Guide to Landing Page Builders (Review & Comparison, Hands-on) – 480 visits (350 visits in September)
- Income Mesh Redesign Process, Experience & Tools – 137 visits (48 visits in September)
Like I sad, Pinterest brought a lot of new traffic in October, but all other article have seen an increase in visits too, which is awesome.
That's probably the reason why I also got more sales last month too.
Before I jump in my income report, let's see some social statistics..
Now we're talking 🙂
The thing is, still, I am spending very little time promoting my content on social networks.
Not as much as I should that's for sure. Still, when things get rolling, especially if your articles are good, people will share it for you, that's always a good thing.
Most of the social success in October is due to the popularity of my Pinterest traffic article. It spread very well on Pinterest and that helped to spread the article on other social networks too.
My favorite part of this article – income report 🙂
Honestly, from the beginning of October I knew it will be my best month on Income Mesh. I got some sales almost every day and I was 100% sure I will go beyond $1000.
Unfortunately, for one of the sales I did I didn't get my commission (some other affiliate did), so I lost $40. And in other case, someone asked for a refund and I lost around $120 I already made.
So all in all, I know I did made over $1000 in sales, I just didn't manage to keep all of it 🙂
Here are the exact numbers…
Thirsty Affiliates – $14.70
InstaBuilder 2.0 – $35.11
Elegant Themes – $80.00
Thrive tools – $704.60 (see my Thrive Leads review here + my Thrive Content Builder review here)
Megaphone App – $49.00
10 Minute Funnels – $78.00
GetResponse – $13.31
Not bad ha? 🙂
