Monthly Income Report November 2020: $3,145.85

It’s time for a quick recap of November!

My 100% white-hat experiment is still going… And it’s been a very encouraging month.

Traffic and revenue grew steadily in November, and Black Friday weekend & Cyber Monday have been the cherry on top of the cake bringing a good amount of affiliate commissions during the last few days of the month.

Based on historical data for my sites, I was expecting numbers to go up, but it didn’t actually go the exact way I was planning.

First of all, Project 4, while bringing in a good chunk of my revenue, generated about half of what it made a year ago, in November 2019.

It’s due to 2 factors. First is the fact that Amazon slashed its commissions at the end of last April, so you need a lot more traffic to generate as much money. Second is the fact that I haven’t published any new content on that website since last February because I’ve been focusing my investment on Project 5.

Talking about Project 5, the site keep growing at a steady pace and revenue increased by over $300 in a single month. That’s quite encouraging and I can’t wait to see how it will do in December.

All my other projects were quite stable and to be honest, I don’t pay any attention to them (apart from the occasional WordPress update) as they keep generating a bit of change completely passively.

Let’s take a look at the growth of my various projects:

What about the money?

Here is a summary of the money flow for my various projects.

To make this report easier to understand, I’m using a simple color code: green numbers are positive, red numbers are negative.

Please keep in mind that these figures may not be 100% accurate due to various factors such as refund requests and network adjustments. The terms for each payment may also vary. As a result, these numbers may differ from the actual payments issued and received.

Income$3,145.85▲ $1,131.67
Affiliate$1,690.70▲ $794.98
Ads$1,430.15▲ $386.69
Sponsored Posts$25.00▼ $50.00
Expenses-$3,982.02▲ $1,533.48
Content-$3,541.08▲ $1,255.54
Ezoic-$421.94▲ $277.94
Earnings-$836.17▼ $401.81

Since this is the first time I hit over $3,000 in monthly revenue in 2020, I’m pretty excited.

It should have been a month in the green if it wasn’t for one of my writers delivering a batch of content weeks before due date, so I had to pay earlier than expected. Overall, it’s not a big deal as it will reduce my expenses in December significantly.

Still, I lost less than $900 in November, so it’s almost a win in my book. And that “loss” isn’t actually a loss since it’s investment in new content that will bring bring in new visitors and revenue for months or even years to come.

What’s happening next?

December is always a tricky month. The first 2-3 weeks of December are always super exciting as everyone is shopping for Christmas, then things fall of a cliff around the 22-23 of December, when it’s too late to receive deliveries before Christmas day.

So far, numbers are encouraging but I don’t expect to hit the same kind of numbers as November. If I’m being honest, I’m not even sure I’ll hit $3,000 in revenue.

No matter what happens, I’ll keep you posted in my next income report.
