Yup, it’s another report. I don’t want to get too behind these things again, so I thought I’d go ahead and get July up before I let my procrastination get the better of me.
I wrote about this before, but I have an odd sense of motivation; if my numbers are doing well or really poorly, then I feel urged to work more and get my numbers up. In contrast, if my numbers are just low to mediocre, then I get a bit lazy and complacent. I think it’s partly because if my numbers are really low, then I simply need to work on getting them up, and if they are doing well, then I want to try to hit new personal bests due to my uber-competitive nature.
Anyway, let’s see how July 2014 fared:
July 2014 Affiliate Campaign Income:
A bit lower than both May and June, but still pretty good.
Affiliate Network Breakdown:
- Affiliate Network #1: $24,989.95
- Affiliate Network #2: $6,019.04
- Affiliate Network #3: $14,313.00
- Affiliate Network #4: $4,840.82
(This includes conversion from foreign currencies to USD)
Traffic Source Breakdown:
- Traffic Source #1: $28,399.02
- Traffic Source #2: $2,672.02
- Traffic Source #3: $5,331.97
- Traffic Source #4: $670.58
Okay, so it’s a bit of a drop from May and June… that’s okay. The truth is that I’m always pretty happy whenever I break $10,000/month profit.
2014 Affiliate Marketing Results
First, here’s a recap of how 2013 fared for the entire year:
And here’s a monthly breakdown of 2014 so far:
Hey, I like it! $70K net so far this year with an average of $10K/net a month. I’m on pace to hit $120K profit this year – which may sound good, but it would only be half of what I pulled in last year.
Hmm… can’t be greedy though… $120K/year is still pretty good!
The Larger Picture: 19-Month Analysis
Below are my overall numbers from my campaigns since I started recording them in January 2013:
|January 2013 to July 2014||Gross||Expense||Net||ROI|
What’s interesting is that even though I pulled in $13K profit last month, it still brought my overall monthly average down. That just shows you how good 2013 was for me…
I didn’t do anything too interesting in July. Mostly, I maintained what I had going.
In addition to that, I continued launching a lot of campaigns on that new traffic source that I started in May in order to try to learn it better and find profitable targets. It’s really not a great source, but it does have a few pockets of profitable targets here and there.
I also revisited an affiliate network I hadn’t used in quite a while… like 8+ months or so. I had done good volume with them before, but their offers fizzled out for me and they weren’t really getting many new ones so I let them be until now. Their new offer did really good for me, which you will hear more about in my August report.
August Plans and Predictions
Normally in this section I list the plans I have for the upcoming month as well as predict how I think the month will fare profit-wise. However, since August has already come and gone, I will be skipping this section in this report since I already know how it went.
Stay tuned to see for yourself!
