June 2008 Affiliate Income Report

It’s time for another income report here at AffiliateConfession.com and it’s a record month for affiliate earnings mainly due to some nice contest winnings in May which lets me cook the books a little. I didn’t report that I won $750 in cash from the Webmaster-Talk.com contest and I’ve used that to cover $543.66 worth of advertising expenses this month. When the $750 has been spent I’ll again take off advertising from the revenue total.

Google Adsense and the Microsoft Affiliate program contributed significantly to the record this month as well. The breakdown of earnings this month is as follows:

Google Adsense – $1,492.96
Commission Junction – $50.37
EPN – eBay – $778.60
Meal Planner Ebook – $119.00
TripAdvisor – $222.83
Clickbank – $189.95
Private Advertising – $105.00
AzoogleAds – $17.30
Microsoft – $400.00
Other Affiliate Programs – $103.60
Total Revenue – $3,479.61
Total Income – $3,479.61

You may have noticed that Commission Junction revenue is down by a large margin and that’s because most of what I was earning through them was from eBay who has now moved over to their own private program management and Pepperjam Network. Also, I was earning some decent money through generating leads with Apartments.com and had been up in the range of $200-$250 per month, but their landing pages stopped converting and now the same amount of clicks sent their way is earning me $40 rather than $200 per month.

I’m continuing to work on PPC and have had some limited success and with earnings this month I’ll have an even bigger advertising budget than last month, so things are looking up.

  17. matthew,

    I get about 250 to 350 people a day to this blog and the only tips I have is to look around and do what I’m doing. Sell private ads and do reviews and tutorials on products you use with affiliate programs.
