I am mainly keeping Financial Jesus as a hobby but as a nice side note it also brings in a little money.
In 2009 it made me an extra 851,97 dollars.
Where I Got My Money From
Google Adsense – $519.31
Amazon.com referral program – $1.93
CPALead.com – $3.71
Direct Sales - $327.02 (101.4 dollars in December)
Total Blog income in 2009 – $ 851.97
As you see from the numbers, Google Adsense is still my number 1 earner – I am having a difficult time coming up with something more profitable. In December however I looked into direct sales and managed to pull in a rather decent income of 170 dollars. That is almost twice what I made in November.
Goal for 2010
My Blog income Goal for 2010 is 5000 dollars. That’s $416 per month on average!
I have a number of things in my mind to achieve this:
- More articles – Write constantly more articles to get more traffic. Maybe even pay someone to help me write more stuff. A poll on the website seems to suggest that people want at least 1 new article per day.
- Sell my own products – I will come up with my own digital products that I can sell on the website. This way people that are interested in some topics can find out more and at the same time they will help me to keep the site going.
- Online store – put a store on the site that would enable people buy books and other things I recommend.
- A forum – I’ll probably add a forum to the website. That way I will get more traffic and find a way for my readers to engage with each other.
