Income and Traffic Report for June 2016 – $1875

Hello Travel Blog Breakthrough readers!  Hope you’re having a good summer so far and that there is lots of travel and blogging happening.  While May was pretty quiet on the income front, I saw a nice bump in June thanks to invoices being paid.  One thing you’ll learn while working with brands is that invoices rarely get paid as quickly as you’d like.  So how did June go?  Let’s find out!

Income and Traffic Report for May 2016 – $374

*madly typing away* – This is me trying my best to catch up.  What I’ve learned from blogging is that no matter how much you seem to get done, there’s always more to do.  I love that there’s always lots of content to create but at the same time you kind of wish things weren’t a frenzy all the time.  I’m way behind on Travel Blog Breakthrough but I know there’s a lot of interest for these income reports so here we go with May.

Affiliate Marketing 101 for Travel Bloggers

As you start exploring different ways to make money travel blogging, affiliate marketing is something you’ll naturally encounter alongside display advertising.  However, the story I hear time and time again from other bloggers is that because it’s hard to be successful at it, they end up giving up. There are a ton of affiliate marketing guides out there but none that are really focused on how it works for travel bloggers.  With this new travel blogger’s toolkit article, I...

Income Report for September 2015 – $1034

September was a kick ass month for Going Awesome Places all things considered.  I cracked $1000 for only the second time this year.  It’s not time to pop the champagne yet because there’s still a lot more work to be done! This month, I’m going to try something a little different. Instead of all the detail I’ve done in the past, I’m going to keep things higher level to get you the information you care about up front.  Let me know what you think!

Income Report for July 2015 – $489.02

First of all, I have to apologize for getting the July income report out SO late.  It’s been a whirlwind summer of travel and between this and Going Awesome Places, it’s definitely been tough to keep up.  The good news is that the podcasts are going again and I’m catching up on these reports as well. So winding the clock a little, I had a chance to dig into how July’s performance was.  While it wasn’t as good as I had hoped it to be, money still trickled in...

Income Report for June 2015 – $1379

My oh my how the months go by.  I was supposed to work on this weeks ago but something called Competitours happened at the beginning of July and the finishing up of my 13 episode series. It’s kind of how life is for a blogger in the summer.  Most of the travel opportunities come in the summer and when that happens you end up having to play a lot of catch up after trips.  May was just one of those lulls that you hit as a blogger when you hit the road and don’t get to build on...

Income Report for May 2015 – $574

I know a lot of you have been eagerly awaiting for the May income report to come out so thank you for being patient! After an amazing April, I wish I could’ve followed it up with another stellar finish but as it goes with blogging, there are always a lot of up and downs.  Consistency is what we’re all trying to strive for but the nature of the business is that it’s constantly a lot of hustle to keep opportunities coming in.  That’s why I keep on saying that...

SeedingUp – Be Discovered And Make Money

One of the key lessons I’ve preached over and over in my income reports is the fact that if you want to branch out in terms of your income streams you need to find ways to make yourself discoverable.  The math is simple and is best said by Gretzky. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. In the past I’ve talked about places like IZEA and themidgame and sure they may not always pay dividends right away but rather than saying they’re a “waste of time”, I...

Income Report for April 2015 – $2406

Welcome to the April 2015 income and traffic report for Going Awesome Places and Travel Blog Breakthrough.  This month was all about breaking goals and I am happy to report that I actually cracked the $2000 profit threshold.  *drop the mic* Okay I know it’s not a crazy amount but when you put in perspective of the whole journey, I honestly never thought I’d be able to pull that kind of money in…EVER.  I’m sure you can relate.  Tell any of your friends that...

TBB 011 – The Blogger Network Doing What’s Best For Bloggers with Kyle Ivins

It’s no secret that I’ve been testing display ad networks for months and ever since switching over to The Blogger Network, I’ve been been singing their praises.  A lot of people have been asking me a lot of questions about the network and so I figure why not get one of the co-founders directly on the line and ask him why the rock. : Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS
