I know I keep saying this with every post but my is the time flying! It's already March and I'm not for sure I'm ready for the time to keep passing by so quickly, it makes me feel like I have to hush to complete my goals.
February was a short month but I still did really well. I started applying with ad networks and been getting turned down because they feel my blog Product Review Mom is only product reviews. I wish they would bypass my blog name and look at the content I produce on my blog. I turned my blog into a lifestyle blog because I wanted to be more than just product reviews and be able to discuss a variety of different topics. But like the saying goes, "it's their loss". If only they see how much I make a month with affiliate marketing I'm sure they would reconsider because it shows my blog has value and my readers trust my judgement.
I'm currently working on my first sponsored post with Sverve which I'm excited about because I really like the brand I'm working with. Hopefully I'll be able to do more sponsored post through them in the future. What I really want is to cut the middle man out and work with brands directly without ad networks but I know that will involve a lot of hard work on my part like reaching out to brands, showing them that working with me would benefit them, and telling them about my services I offer. So far I haven't created a media rate kit and I know I really should. My weakness is working a paid deal with brands and that has made me shy away from it and stick with affiliate marketing. But I'm a work in progress.
Here are my February totals:
1. Cashcrate- $27.85
2. Escalate Network- $458.08
3. MaxBounty- $321.40
4. ROI Rocket- $1769.85
5. Google Adsense- $138.06
6. Panthera Network- $6357.50
Grand Total- $9072.74
OMG, this is my highest monthly earning ever! (Pats self on the back) My traffic has been increasing with Product Review Mom so that helped with my earnings.
I know I haven't shared with you my PV and UV from Product Review Mom so I wanted to share it on this post so you can get an idea what my blog traffic looks like. My Pageviews is 74,000+ and Unique visitors is 30,000+. Shocking how both PV and UV is not that high but yet my income is. When it comes to blogging pageviews really doesn't matter, if your readers trust you they'll buy or sign up with pretty much whatever you promote.
Darren from Problogger.net will be doing a study about how high pageviews and unique visitor counts doesn't really matter when it comes to how much bloggers can earn with their blog. Also, he will be featuring me in his talks, I'm really excited about this! I wish I knew when this will happen.
For the month of March, I'll be focusing on building my blog traffic and finding ways to make income through different sources.
I hope you all had a great month of February in earnings and cheers to March!
