My May 2014 Income and Traffic Report

Welcome to my 4th Monthly report for 2014!

This is the 4th Time of my income and traffic report. There are lots of changes and project’s progress in each month. I just wanted to share a detailed report of what I’ve done and everything that I’ve learned from the previous month. Also, I will tell you exactly what’s going on with my online business stuffs, income, expenses and traffic through Be Rich and Rich Journey! I hope that this report would be an inspiration for you, my reader, to start your own online business and make it’s happened.

The reason why I do this:

  • To keep track and help me focus for currently important projects each month.
  • To improve productivity, but not to stress for myself each month.
  • To inspire you to start your own business.
  • To share key successes and failures during each month that I’ve experienced.

Ok. Let’s dig down into May’s details!

What was happening in May?

Finished My 2nd Niche Site and Ready to Outsource for link building

Since April, I have been failing to finish, publish all articles on this niche site due to I was really busy with my 1st Info product and my 9-5 job that I was mentioned in the previous income report. So last month, I decided to slow me down and tried to focus only my main project, which including niche website and self-publishing.  After that, around the first week of May, I’ve done everything for #2 niche site, including on-page SEO and published all articles.

This niche site monetizes with various famous affiliate programs, not just amazon affiliate like the previous one that I’ve always mentioned in my income report. You might want to check out my niche site epic tutorial that I’ve been documented along the way when I was building #1 niche site since October 2013. I would recommend my book, niche site with affiliate marketing for beginner, in case you want to get started with niche sites that monetizes with various affiliate programs.

I’ve decided to study deep down into link building course from point blank SEO. There is a lot of useful content from beginner to expert and this course is always updated. I’ll review this course after I’ve made the process of hiring my first SEO VA for this niche site.

Launched My 5th Kindle eBook

After one months for developing contents, I finished and launched my 5th Kindle ebook, “Evernote for Beginners”. Evernote is really important and helping me to keep track, notes, my thought and everything in my daily life. So I really wanted you, my reader, to start using Evernote and manage your daily life through Evernote. So your life would be less confused, trust me! This is the link to purchase the book.

Now the time of Numbers

Visitors Statistics

My blog daily traffic was increased from new visitors from Thailand due to I have 2 blogs now, Thai and English language. I know that if I want more visitors that keep coming back to my blog, I need to put more useful blog posts for this blog and also my 2nd Thai blog too. Well, I’ll try my best. 🙂

In the other hand, my niche site traffic has decreased. There are 70 – 100 unique visitors a day. I didn’t know why traffic was decreased, since last month, I was doing nothing in this site. But amazon revenue was still the same. So I’ll keep an eye on this niche site’s traffic for this month.

I can tell you that I really appreciate if this blog could be some motivation and inspiration for someone to get started with their own online business.

And my income from “Passive Income Projects” are quite consistent from a niche site, kindle eBooks and print-books. All previous projects are truly making money for me every day.

Final Thought

Normally I can write around 750-850 word blog post. This is the first time that I’ve been writing over 1100 word blog post. I just discovered myself after I’ve been a blogger for a while that I love writing. You can share everything through your words and finally you can make money with your words. If you have anything to share with me, don’t be shy! Please leave comment below. And before you go, I want to say thank you for all of your support, please stay tuned for the next update on this blog. I appreciate all you guys, wish you all the best and see you next week!

Cheers!  🙂

    RM, WELL DONE with managing to juggle so many tasks at the same time. I tried to do this, whilst also studying for an MBA. I ended up with TOO many half finished tasks. Moving on, I plan to batch tasks and ensure I finish each one in its time-frame before moving on to another one. What do you think of that?

    Jon Cooper’s course is excellent for initial link building and some creative ways of building links. Brian Dean from BacklinkO also has some killer linking tips and content. Even Spencer recommends these methods.

    Are your Amazon earnings from one niche site? Keep up the good work and all the best with your plans for June.

    P.S – Your post says – “Goals and Plans for May”. Shouldn’t that be June?

    • Hi Ollie
      Thanks for helping me correct my words. I just correct it.

      In my opinion, first you have to focused only high priority task and finished it, no matter how long you have to do it. Then you can move on to another one. Mostly I’ve finished only one task at a time, then move on to another one. But when you have to attend class, you cannot do your task. This time you have to study. I mean, each time, you have a high priority task that you have to do it, right?

      I have plan to study deep down into link building before study to build my own blog network. This year and continue next year, I have plan to build my niche site empires. So I need to know everything about niche websites. Then next year might be site flipping. 🙂

      Yes, amazon earning is coming from only one niche site.

      Anyway, thank you for your useful comment. 🙂

  • Deepa Bhatia

    RM wonderful job done. Congratulation on earnings and all the best for the June.

    I have one question regarding Amazon
    How do you link to amazon affiliate? Does visitors from different countries affect the affiliate link? Can you share your email id, I want some inputs of Amazon.

    • Hi Deepa
      I place a simple text link for amazon affiliate and visitors from different countries see the same link, mostly from amazon.com. I think you can share your information here, so all reader would be benefits from your info as well.

      Thanks for being here. 🙂

      • Deepa Bhatia

        A visitor from India goes to amazon.in
        A visitor from US goes to amazon.com

        Which affiliate link you use in your post? The affiliate of amazon.in or amazon.com

        • Amazon.com only for my niche site.

        • You can redirect the visitors for their respective countries’ amazon website by using some simple plugin. All you need to register with different countries’ amazon affiliate program.

          • Thanks, I’ll apply with my new niche site. 🙂
