WOW! I can't believe how fast 2016 has flown by! Moms Don't Sleep went out with a bang with one of our most profitable months yet. We doubled our income this month! Here is our December income report:
Not much changed in our strategy, the reason for our income spike was simply a freelance project that I was hired to do with a blogger I work with frequently.
On our list for next month in addition to our regular blogging duties:
- Launching our 30-day free e-course
- Creating content upgrades for all of our most popular posts
Our main goal: increasing our email list and engagement with our readers!
February I will be starting Elite Blog Academy! If you are thinking about taking that class and want to stay updated on my progess, sign up for updates!
So lets jump in! Here is a reminder of what last month (November) brought:
- UVs: 8,831 (goal met)
- Monthly Page views: 33,691 (goal met)
- Pinterest: 703 (goal not met)
- Facebook: 140 (goal not met)
- Twitter: 1,369
- Instagram: 1,501
- Income: $601.58
Here were my goals for December:
- UVs: 8,500
- Monthly Page views: 45,000
- Pinterest: 1,000
- Facebook: 150
- Income: $800
Still have decided to take a break from twitter and instagram (although I have a couple giveaways on the books for next month)
I do, however, use a tool on boardbooster that tweets each time you pin something in pinterest, so my content and the content I pin from others all gets tweeted with the link. So at least it keeps my account somewhat active and encourages people to share!
My numbers for December:
- UVs: 8,825 (goal met)
- Monthly Page views: 41,333 (goal not met)
- Pinterest: 756 (goal not met)
- Facebook: 245 (goal met)
- Instagram: 1,505
Income breakdown for December:
- Ad network: $29.45
- Affiliate: $6.15
- Direct Sales: $54.00
- Services: $1,080.00
- Total income: $1,169.60
Can you believe that only 7 months ago I published my first income report after making a total of $34.69?? Check out all my income reports here.
Not only was I able to invest in the Elite Blog Academy, but I was also able to purchase a laptop for when I'm too tired or need to rest (I am heading into my third trimester after all) not to mention, after the baby is born (last week of march, by the way!) I will be healing!
