Highlights – My Birthday

Forbidden BroadwayThe main highlight was that it was my birthday this month! I celebrated by going out for a meal with friends and then watching a theatre show.

We saw Forbidden Broadway, which was hilarious, the type of show where your eyes are streaming with tears due to laughing so much. It was a great evening.

Life has been good to me so far but there is still so much more that I would like to achieve.  Writing these blog posts are definitely helping me to focus on my goals.

I Got My Name on a Leader-board

Tiffany Lamberts Affiliate Sales LeaderboardIt was so exciting to log into Facebook and find out that I had made it onto a sales leader-board. It was for a product that Tiffany Lambert had on offer.

Thank you to Michelle for liking the picture, thus alerting me to it’s existence. I was pleased as punch to see my little old name down there at the bottom.

If I work a little harder, my name could rise one level higher and then who knows? Wow.

Connecting With Online People Has Been Great

Taking part in the 30 Day Blogging Challenge has been a lovely way to meet new people and to discover new posts. I was also happy to connect with a couple of new PLR providers as well. It was an honour to be sent a review copy of someone’s product and to be asked to promote.

I look forward to doing more of that in the future.

Results of The Goals I Set for September

  • I will earn $520 – YES
  • I will publish my info product – NO
  • I will write 20 articles my PLR site – YES
  • I will publish a post each day for 30 days – YES

  • Earnings from Recommending Other PLR & Products = $401.25 = Last month = $195.28
  • Earnings from Amazon Affiliate Programme = $105.99 Last month = $25.47

Thoughts

I am over the moon with my results. As I mentioned in the video, when I hit my target I actually got up and did a happy dance, much to the amusement of my sister. Lol

Hey, you really have to celebrate the wins, otherwise what is the point. Enjoy the good times and work hard so that there are more.

I just checked and my Halloween site earned $56 for September – and Halloween shopping has only just begun :)

Cash in on The Holidays Blogging Guide - Britta MalkaIf you are still on the fence about starting up a Christmas site, I would say go for it.

There is going to be a lot of great PLR (ready to use) articles on sale soon so you will have the content you need. I am hoping that I will do well with my own Christmas site.

If you need help figuring out how to put an affiliate site together, check out Casual Holiday Blogging, an Amazon (or any other ) affiliate guide by Britt Malka.  I got a few good tips from there.

This Months Goals

Things I Will Do in October

#1 – I Will Earn $680

Last month’s goals was to earn $520 and I made $548. Success!
This month’s scary number is $680. I hope to continue doing more of the same.

#2 – I Will Publish My Info Product

This was almost ready last month but changes in procedures meant that part of this product was out of date. It is now all coming together and I really hope to have it released by the end of this month.

#3 – I Will Complete My 31 Day Blogging Challenge

I am happy to say that in September I added 30 new blog posts to my various websites. This month I am concentrating on this site. I will also be adding a video each day just to add on the pressure. lol

#4 – I Will Write 20 New PLR Articles for My PLR Site

I managed to write 20 new PLR articles last month. Success! 5 articles were offered as a Free PLR offer and the other 20 will make up a new offer next week.

I didn’t put out a sale for September and this is reflected in my earnings. But this month should be better.

This month I am also aiming to write another 20 PLR articles. I have already done 5 so only 15 more to go. Hurrah!

Time for Accountability

I hope to stay accountable by being active in the blogging challenge groups that I have joined. I am feeling positive about everything and excited about what this month will bring. Wish me luck :)

August 2014 Review & Monthly Income Report

 August Review & Income Report

August Was A Busy But Enjoyable Month!

This is a Review & Reflection post where I take a look at what I got done over the past month. I want life to be a balance of creating an online business while enjoying the good things with family and friends.

This is what I am striving for. I hope that this post will help to inspire others who are looking for the same thing too.

Highlights in August

My Online Business – I Took Part in a PLR Mega Give-away
Free PLRA group of PLR sellers got together and offered brand new content in three popular niche areas – money, relationships and health.

I was very scared to take part because I wasn’t sure I would be able to get the required 15 articles written and organised. Well, I took a deep breath and went for it. The free give-away went really well. I was able to increase the subscriber list for my store, The PLR Boutique, and I also made a little money too. I did this by offering a discount on the content that was already on my site.

I Grew My Subscriber List
When I started the month my list for The PLR Boutique was at 86. I now have 345 people signed up.  There were some people who signed up just for the freebie, then unsubscribed quite quickly. Around 50 people did that.  There was also an additional 199 people who subscribed but didn’t click the confirmation link.

I am very happy to get the additional 259 people. I know that I will need to do a few more free offerings in the future as this works wonders.

Life in August

This month I was very fortunate to be able to meet up with great friends. I went to the theatre twice and I helped to celebrate a friends birthday in Ireland. I wrote about this in a previous post.

This Months Goals

Things I Will Do In September

Here are the tasks that I have set myself.

#1 – I Will Earn $520
Last month’s goal was to earn $330 and I made $377. SUCCESS!

This month I will earn $520. This sounds like a very scary number to me. I am not sure if I can do it but I will try my hardest to get as close to that number as I can.

#2 – I Will Publish My Info Product
Last month I mentioned that I wanted to create a $7 product from some of the PLR content I had purchased. Well I didn’t hit that goal for August. FAIL.

However I have got it all together now. Almost. I have a few links to add, I need to upload the accompanying videos and write the sales page. By the end of September this product will be on sale.

#3 – I Will Add 20 Articles to The PLR Boutique
Last month my goal was to write 20 articles. I actually wrote 25 articles. SUCCESS! 15 were available for free during a Free Give-away Promotion. 10 articles were added to the site.

This month I hope to be able to write and add all 20 articles to The PLR Boutique. I have made a start already. I just need to get to writing the rest of the batch.

#4 – I Will Publish a Post Each Day for 30 Days
I have sent myself the challenge of posting 30 blog posts over the course of September. These posts will be on different sites, some will be new content, some re-purposed and some PLR content that I have purchased and is doing nothing sitting on my hard drive. I have already started. This is Blog Post No.5.

Time for Accountability

Are you looking for a way to stay motivated so that you get things done? Well it is a lot easier if you do it as part of a group. I have joined two Facebook groups to help me stay on track.

The success of last month’s earnings is also spurring me on to try and do better this month :)
