Struggling to get traffic to your website?
February 2021 Blogging Income Report
February was yet another record breaking month for my authority site case study.
I have seen a spike in income and traffic did well too.
2021 has been a great year for me and my business overall. I have seen a ton of growth and I have started focusing on things that are making me more money.
In this article, I am going to share with you one of my case study website earnings and announce a few changes I am implementing for my business.
I am working on a few big changes in my business. I am shifting my focus to offering better content, and I plan to implement a new course for my audience members to use to grow their own websites.
I rebranded my entire business here and it is now Jon Smith DM. DM simply stands for digital marketing. I chose digital marketing because I don't just build websites for profit. I also run affiliate campaigns through paid traffic, email marketing, and much more.
My branding is now changed and that means I need to focus on creating content not only for my various niche or authority websites but my YouTube channel for my brand. The very brand you are on now.
So from here on out, I am going to do my best to focus more of my time on my YouTube channel so that I can deliver you a solid resource to do what I do online.
My YouTube content will shift a little into more of an overview of what I do and that includes authority sites, email marketing, affiliate marketing, etc.
Jon Smith DM Blog
I will be cross-posting content on here and on YouTube. If you see a video on my channel then you can almost guarantee that there is content on the blog here to go with it.
This allows me to link to relevant resources and go into more detail on any particular subject.
I really want to make my website here an authority site on the topics I cover and I am treating it like another website in my business. This means more helpful content and a ton of value.
Authority Site Traffic - Google Analytics
In February 2021 I had 43,945 pageviews which is a little down from January. This is due to the fact that February has a few less days compared to January and I fully expect a huge spike in traffic this coming month of March 2021.
My Authority Site Earnings
I did well this month despite the slight drop in traffic. I even added a new partner which I will announce in my March 2021 blogging income report.
I am pretty confident that I will see some decent earnings from my added affiliate partner as it is highly relevant to my niche.
For February 2021 I earned $746.85 which is up just a couple hundred dollars from January. I am satisfied with any increase in revenue though I did anticipate it being a significant increase.
I guess $200 added revenue per month is significant and I don't mean to make it sound like nothing but I did expect to earn more from display ads this month.
Hopefully next month I will see a huge increase since my traffic seems to be shifting around and my placements in the search results are improving daily.
Amazon Associates Affiliate Earnings
I earned $152.54 from Amazon Associates which I fully expected. Amazon is not something I really focus on. I do have a lot of links scattered throughout my website but I don't want it to be a big part of my revenue.
I am definitely thankful for the added income Amazon Associates brings for me but I cannot allow it to be a significant percentage of my overall income. That is just too risky.
The revenue from Amazon is about half compared to January so I wasn't too thrilled about the lower amount of earnings but again I am still thankful for anything coming my way.
More Content Coming
I need a two week break from anything online so March is my month I plan to take this break.
It is important to remember that your health is crucial and taking breaks and spending time with your lovedones is also a good idea.
We can get really hyped up and focus too much on our online empires and that clouds our relationships. Mental health is important so go do something with your family. Even something simple.
I have 5 posts I can post for March that will be ready soon and I may have more written but I am not really sure how this month will go in terms of production. I need this break.
My income was greater despite a fall in traffic however there were a few less days than normal in February.
Also, my health and relationships are important to me so I am taking a little time to myself and I am going to spend time with some family this month.
I may not get much done but I am still going to have income which is the best thing about this business.
Passive income rocks!
