Affiliate Marketing Income Report: November 2014

February 23, 2015 Posted by Tyler Cruz

With my health slowly improving and in a continued effort to try to get "back on track", I thought I’d go ahead and post another affiliate marketing income report.

November 2014 was an interesting month because it kind of caught me by surprise and actually ended up being my 2nd highest profiting month since June 2013!

As usual, I’ll discuss more details as this report goes on, but it’s nice to know that I still have some good months in me here and there. If I get 2 months like this back-to-back, for example, that’s roughly enough down payment for another investment property (albeit a cheap one)!

Anyhow, here’s how November ended up performing:

November 2014 Affiliate Campaign Income:

$40,842.32

Affiliate Network Breakdown:

  • Affiliate Network #1: $40,842.32

(This includes conversion from foreign currencies to USD)

It’s a little rare for me to use only one network, but I really wasn’t seeing too much action in terms of new offers around this season… perhaps the advertiser’s running out of their yearly budget early or something?

Expenses:

$23,018.80


Traffic Source Breakdown:

  • Traffic Source #1: $10,337.89
  • Traffic Source #2: $2.12
  • Traffic Source #3: $953.05
  • Traffic Source #4: $11,484.08
  • Traffic Source #5: $58.11
  • Traffic Source #6: $183.55

    In November, I continued to work on mobile on a primary mobile source I started using 1-2 months prior, and scaled the volume up. I also started a new mobile traffic source that my affiliate manager recommended to me, which you’ll see me really scale up the next month.

Net Profit:

$17,823.52

Nice! I have to admit, ending the month nearly 18K up felt nice. The last time I made that much was back in June, so it did give me a morale boost. It ended up working out to a 77% ROI.

2014 Affiliate Marketing Results

First, here’s a recap of how 2013 fared for the entire year:

Total: $823,884.01 $555,024.33 $258,859.68 46%
Monthly Average: $68,657.00 $47,085.36 $21,571.64 46%

And here’s a monthly breakdown of 2014 so far:

April 2014 $3,486.55 $3,150.00 $336.55 11%
May 2014 $57,015.00 $38,765.01 $18,249.99 47%
June 2014 $60,753.58 $43,095.35 $17,658.23 41%
July 2014 $50,162.81 $37,073.59 $13,089.22 35%
August 2014 $27,317.35 $21,291.31 $6,026.04 28%
September 2014 $29,935.71 $22,872.08 $7,063.63 31%
October 2014 $44,811.48 $35,625.55 $9,185.93 26%
November 2014 $40,842.32 $23,018.8 $17,823.52 77%
Total: $375,391.63 $265,109.63 $110,282.00 42%
Monthly Average: $34,126.51 $24,100.88 $10,025.64 42%

November’s great performance increased my monthly net average in 2014 up to $10K a month!

The Larger Picture: 23-Month Analysis

Below are my overall numbers from my campaigns since I started recording them in January 2013:

January 2013 to November 2014 Gross Expense Net ROI
23-Month Total: $1,199,275.64 $830,133.96 $369,141.68 44%
Monthly Average: $52,142.42 $36,092.78 $16,049.64 44%

After close to 2 years of recording my affiliate marketing numbers, my monthly average sits at $16,000 profit a month! Geez, that’s really only sinking in now as I write that… because I’ve had some insanely really bad months lately (hint! hint!), and with months like April 2014 and January 2014 I sometimes forget that overall I’m still doing pretty well!

November Recap

As mentioned earlier, I really pushed mobile hard in November. I still ran web on the side, but mobile made up for probably around 60% of my profits. I split test a lot of mobile offers and spent a lot of time (and money) trying to work out a "sweet spot" at the mobile traffic network where I could maximize the net profit by balancing out my bids and my ROI’s.

I only tested one mobile landing page which did not do well, despite giving it more than its fair chance. I’m a complete newbie when it comes to mobile landing pages, so it may be a while before I find out what works and what doesn’t.

If I remember correctly (November was a while ago after all…), I had some really annoying server issues around this time as well since I was doing so much volume in mobile. CPVLab and my server were going a bit bonkers and I had to spend way too much time trying to manage all of that.

Charles Ngo strongly recommended to me that I switch from CPVLab to Voluum, and I gave it some thought, but I ended up deciding to stick with CPVLab (for now at least).

To to recap, November = mobile = $$$ Smile

December 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 December has already come and gone, I will be skipping this section in this report since I already know how it went.

I’ll have December’s report up in the not-too-distant future, so hang tight.

  2. Paul says:

    Nice results. Good to see your monthly above $10k average as that’s like a milestone number that’s great to hit. Technically a six-figure income is only $8,333/month but I always prefer to consider a six-figure income per year as hitting at least $10k/m.

    Looking forward to Decembers report.
