July 2008 Affiliate Income Report – A New Record

Another affiliate income report is due and July turned out to my best month in affiliate earnings so far, topping last month by 24% which was also a record month. Fortunately I haven’t been slowed down at all by the summer slump many affiliates experience.

Two of the biggest increases in July came from a new record in AdSense earnings, beating the previous best month by $200 and earnings from the eBay affiliate program for the first time crossed the $1,000 per month barrier thanks to Build A Niche Store. Earnings were also good from Pepperjam Network, Market Leverage and AzoogleAds.

Expenses were a bit higher than usual this past month due to experimenting with PPC and having some success. I hope to scale that up a bit this month. Total income for July 2008 came in at $4,312.31 and breaks down as follows:

Google Adsense – $1,694.94
Commission Junction – $35.94
EPN – eBay – $1,196.73
Meal Planner Ebook – $85.00
TripAdvisor – $216.63
Clickbank – $88.08
Private Advertising – $140.00
AzoogleAds – $182.20
Microsoft – $300.00
Pepperjam – $278.09
Market Leverage – $219.50
Other Affiliate Programs – $302.77
 
Total Revenue – $4,739.88
 
Total expenses – $427.57
 
Total Income – $4,312.31

Three things I’ll be working on this month to hopefully increase the income again will be paid advertising through Facebook Ads, Adwords and Yahoo Search Marketing, getting more incoming links to my travel sites and continued work on my Build A Niche Stores. A single BANS store produced more than $800 in revenue this month and I’d like to get that store over the $1,000 barrier.

I’ve also started working on a store mash-up that can bring in content from eBay, YouTube, any RSS feeds, ClickBank, Amazon, Overstock and more that could be pretty lucrative. I’ll be explaining more about that coming up in a few more weeks.

With another 24% increase in August that would put things over the $5,000 per month mark which is a fairly significant milestone in earnings. I’ll be taking a week off this month and a week off in September for a birthday and anniversary so it will be hard to keep up the steady pace of seeming non stop work for the next couple of months. Hopefully there are enough things in place to keep the income on auto pilot while the work pace slows down until mid Sept.

Win An Apple MacBook Air And Other Prizes In Webmaster Talk Contest

Win A Macbook AirEarnersForum.com and Webmaster Talk are merging and having an incredible contest to celebrate the merge. Prizes are valued at more than $25,000 and there will only be 5 winners, but the cool thing is, is that each of the 5 winners gets the same exact cache of prizes. We’re talking serious prizes here, not just a $50 WalMart gift card.

The biggest prize going to each of the 5 winners is a MacBook Air valued at $1,800. Would you be willing to take one of those? But there’s more, including:

A Professional Edition Interspire Shopping Cart valued at $995.
A Max Bounty affiliate network account with $500 cash in it.
A Text-Link Ads $500 gift certificate
An iPod Touch from Rocket Profit
$250 cash in a PepperJam affiliate account
24 custom printed t-shirts from Ndesigns
A Flip camera, great for video blogging from Advaliant
A complete multi-pack Revolution Theme
A Nintendo DS Lite from RevResponse
And a 3 month membership to Aaron Wall’s Seo Training

Now this is a different contest than most because you have control over whether you win or not. In other words, winners will not be chosen by a random drawing, they will be determined by who earns the most points, so go for it.

The full rules are here and you can join the forum here. Good luck!
