My income goal in February was $77.63 - I didn’t achieve it but came pretty close. While my income in January 2009 was only $22.37, I managed to almost triple it in February.
Here are the income stats of Financial Jesus for February 2009.
Google Adsense – $16.65
Text Links Ads – $22.61
Direct Links – $21.5
Total earnings for February 2009 – $60.76
What happened in February?
New kinds of ads
I tested Adbrite.com ads but after only 2 day I felt that they were not working and abandoned them. For some reason the code I used never showed real ads but only a link that allowed those interested to buy a link on my website – I am pretty sure I messed up and therefore will probably test Adbrite again pretty soon. If you are familiar with Adbrite and know what I did wrong – let me know!
I managed to sell a link in one of my posts for 20 dollars – I am not sure if I will manage to do it again in March so achieving the same amount of income can prove difficult.
I spent 168 dollars on the Thesis WordPress theme to radically improve the design and layout of financialjesus.com. This is the first time ever that I have spent money doing something for this blog – hopefully it will help to lift things up to a new level eventually!
As you are probably noticing right know – the new theme is not up yet and I am not certain when it will be – probably not before April.
Working on a new Website – LOL Finance
I am working on a new site called LOL Finance – it is a website that publishes daily funny pictures, stories and videos about finance. The site is currently under construction and I have not officially launched it yet but I am hoping to do so in March.
It is also my first test regarding the use of the Thesis theme – before converting Financial Jesus over I will try to get the feel of it to make the customization process easier!
Income goal for March 2009
I sold some links in February that allowed me to temporarily pump up the income, but at the same time I didn’t react on some offers that would have allowed me to increase my revenues even more. Hopefully I will have more courage to take up these extra offers in March!
If anyone has positive experience with some ad networks in addition to Google Adsense – please let me know so I could test them out. I am willing to become your referral!
