This is the 12th IPM Reports for the Income Press Blog. It’s been a full year already and I can’t believe how fast it went. WOW!
In it’s first year the IP blog has generated $38,372.19, including my iPhone games.
That’s so amazing cause that’s more than I made when I worked for Wal-Mart.
I guess it’s safe to say that this proves that you can make a full time income online. You just gotta put a little blood, sweat, and tears.
Every month I publish these reports to show just that. That you can actually make some kind of money online and not bust your ass doing it.
Not trying to say you don’t have to work hard, or that no work is needed to make the money. What I mean is that you don’t have to go to work to make money. With a “JOB” you have to clock in to make money and when you clock out, the money stops.
Pretty much all of the money made on this blog was made while I was logged off, offline, and hanging out with my wife and kids.
And this is what I’m trying to do here with the Income Press Blog. To show you how I do this and how you can do it to.
So let’s get to it…
Biggies for October
This course is about how to make your first $1,000 in the first 30 days. The course is about ACTION. It’s short, simple, and straight to the point. I show you how to set up everything with the least amount of steps, process, and most importantly …money!!!
I usually charge like $97 for a short course like this, but I decided to just give it away for free here on the blog.
The idea here is to save people money. Instead of paying me $97 for the course, they take that same $97 and invested in the things they need to start their online business. Things like hosting, aweber, and other stuff.
I’ve been an info product creator for some time now and I can tell you that the majority of the people who buy these courses usually don’t get anything done.
The main reason is because they spent all their money on the actual course, so they don’t have anymore money to invest in the tools that they need.
So now with my course, there’s no excuse. The course is free. They have money for the tools and resources they need.
This is why there was a huge boost in commissions. People were able to afford hosting and aweber. The two most important aspects of any online business.
If you’re thinking of creating a course, and that course will use tools and resources that will get you commissions, you might want to try this “Free Commissions” method to boost your commissions.
CPA Networks and New Traffic Resources
I been split testing some new traffic sources with CPA Networks. I use to do lots of CPA, CPV, and PPV type stuff back in 2011. Mainly for lead generation.
But this time what I’m doing is trying to find ways to get some super quick traffic for some super fast cash.
It’s a new case study I’m working on. I don’t want to give to much detail cause it’s for another course I’ll be creating for the IP blog and I don’t want any spoilers. Sorry ;-(
All I can tell ya is that this case study has generated $1,732.60 just for the month of October.
Ok so let’s get to some reporting:
- Alexa Ranking: 98,752 (So weird, getting more traffic, but the rankings drop)
- Last Month: 86,727
- Difference: -12,025
- YouTube: $40.22
- Sites: $1.23
- Total: $41.45
- Last Month: $36.19
- Difference: +$5.26
- Unrevealed Case Study: $1,732.60(Coming Soon)
- All done with CPA offers
- No website or list of my own
- Just traffic to an affiliate link
- Affiliate Earnings:
- Market Samurai: $144.00
- BlueHost: $1,690 (The $100 Startup Guide – Streamline Edition)
- Aweber: $181.60 (Email Series that Makes Money)
- Easy Video Player: $33.45
- iPhone Apps:
- Apps: $602.05 (including in-apps)
- iAds: $10.08
- AdMob: $27.23
- Total: $639.36
- Last Month: $467.63
- Difference: +$171.73
- Gross Total for October: $4,894.13
- Last Month: $2,068.52
- Difference: +$2,825.61
So there you have it. Boosted my affiliate commissions by giving away a free course.
This was sort of a split test. I wasn’t sure if it would increase the commissions, but then again I really didn’t care. All I cared about was to help and show people how they can make a quick buck or 2.
I could’ve easily sold it for $97 bucks and made some fast cash that way, but it really would have defeated the purpose.
The new case study I’m doing will do the same. Only this time it will show you how to make some money without being the face and without having your own site or even list.
Many people think, or are led to believe that you have to have a “Brand”, be well known, or have your own site or blog to make any kind of money.
Well that a load of shit! Seriously, I hate when people say that.
“YOU DO NOT NEED YOUR OWN WEBSITE OR A BRAND TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE!”
And I’m going to prove that in my next case study.
Things to Look for in November
We’re nearing the end of the year. I usually shut down by mid November and just chill and relax with my family. I’m still going to shut down, only not so much.
I’ll still be doing some podcast shows. My goal is to hit 20 episodes by the end of the year and I’m going to meet that goal. I’ll be revealing my new case study. And I’ll be working on a new redesign for the Income Press Blog.
The new year will bring some great things and I’m totally excited about it.
Till next month…
Peace and I love ya for free ;-)
