Monthly Income Report – March 2017

Monthly Income Report – March 2017

Hello everyone!

These Income Reports are becoming more and more important to me as it gives me a full day to reflect on how I am performing in different areas as I continue to grow and branch out online. I also get a chance to look at all the raw data. I also enjoy being able to share with all of you what is going on with business.

This month was pretty standard, most of my time was spent sick or getting reacclimated after getting back from my Thailand… bummer. However I was able to get a good amount of stuff done and have be doing some thrifting again!

Now let’s sum up the month:

Merch by Amazon – This has been pretty much on autopilot for me at this point. I create about 50-60 designs per month around certain holidays but other than that it has been mostly passive with old designs selling very well.

  1. Shopify Store –  Sales having been doing very well this month, I have been working on content marketing and have spent ZERO dollars on facebook ads and it has been producing an awesome amount of traffic for each post… I am trying to release one per week. I have also added 2 new products that have been researched over the past month that are doing really well so far!

 

  1. Store #2 is closed. I was really having a hard time doing both at once so i decided to close the store for the time being as it was taking too much time away from other aspects of my business.

 

My Current Numbers which I will update from month to month are as follows:

Shopify Store #1 STATS:

  • Facebook: 2149 +104
  • Instagram: 8758 +687
  • Email List: 491 +25

  1. eBay -Store is Open for business and I have been thrifting and listing again. Sales were decent the last month and I am looking to see growth month over month going into the summer. My sourcing strategy has changed dramatically as I am only sourcing from the outlets going into the future. This is going to help keep my costs down much lower than in the past for acquiring clothing and I will keep you posted with a dashboard screenshot and on youtube with sales!

  1. Pinterest – has been a huge factor of getting noticed this I have been spending more time working on pins and writing new content for the blog and it is really paying off.

I also get a chance to look at all the raw data. I also enjoy being able to share with all of you what is going on with business.

It has been a very interesting & exciting month! As many of you know I spent the month traveling Thailand & it was an amazing experience. Traveling solo was not only a whole new challenge but it made me look at life in ways I never had before. If you are interested in seeing more check out my youtube i posted a few videos of my travels on the channel.

Now lets sum up the month:

Merch by Amazon – One of the slower months was January which the payment was for but still very hefty. I have not put any focus into Merch by Amazon this whole month. I have shifted all of my focus to my Shopify Stores

  1. Shopify Store –  Where I have been seeing the most growth and have been doing a lot of testing and research. I believe that this has the most potential for a long term profitable business for me and I am also very passionate about my main store which make its fun!

Store #2 Is growing quickly I will Show the stats for that below as well and we got our first sales this month so we know there is interest, now the the long term thing is to build our facebook pixel up so we can start targeting more accurately when running ads.

Monthly Income Report – January 2017

Monthly Income Report – January 2017

Hello everyone!

These reports are becoming more and more important to me as it gives me a full day to reflect on how I am performing in different areas as I continue to grow and branch out online. I also get a chance to look at all the raw data. I also enjoy being able to share with all of you what is going on with business.

Man did January ROCK there are lot of things that factored into this month doing so well and it is really great to see my income streams seeing this kind of growth. The following months will not be near this amount for awhile but that is OK as I am expecting some fluctuations the next few months due to the retail cycle.

Merch by Amazon has had so many changes going on however anything like that I will keep on the youtube channel for my small updates. It is going strong and I have added about 200 new designs this month.

My New Udemy Course for Instagram Marketing Check out the course here was a great success this month, thank you to everyone that took the course and left a review I am sure you all had some great takeaways from that and hope you are using them everyday as I am seeing great results as I will start to show in the next few months!

Now lets sum up the month:

  1. Merch by Amazon – Really amazing month! I realize they are really buckling down on the program as there are so many changes and restrictions happening. Hopefully they are just being more careful and trying to put changes into place to better serve customers and content creators…only time will tell!
  2. Shopify Store –  I have opened a second store! The first store is doing amazing and I reached my first milestone of doing over $1000 in sales with less than $50 in Facebook ad spend!

    The second store is much broader and will be public when i get a few months in but I am super excited about it!

I have also integrated with Amazon and am starting to sell on all items with some of my merch designs on the back end of Shopify, if you are not yet subscribed to me on Youtube you will want to now as I will be doing a 20 part video series that will show you the whole process to get up and running.

Income Report December 2016 – Merch By Amazon, Shopify, Udemy, and More!

Monthly Income Report – December 2016

income report December 2016

 

Hello everyone!

These reports are becoming more and more important to me as it gives me a full day to reflect on how I am performing in different areas as I continue to grow and branch out online. I also get a chance to look at all the raw data. I also enjoy being able to share with all of you what is going on with business.

December was a very exciting month for me and I finally got a taste of fourth quarter in Online Retail and man was it Sweet!  I will some it up in the sections below on what actually happened but it was very interesting to say the least!

My Merch by Amazon and Shopify Store were on Autopilot this month which was so nice to see that I had all the systems in place to just let the traffic roll in and get holiday sales on the work I put in this summer.

My project for the month was getting my New Udemy Course for Instagram Marketing UP and Running which is now live and has been doing great so far! I will share these numbers starting January when the first check comes in (Udemy pays out 60 days after the sale is made, they have a very good refund system for the buyer)

Check out the course here

Now lets sum up the month:

  1. Merch by Amazon – Merch by Amazon was WILD this month, there were so many things happening throughout the month increased demand had impacted sales and overall revenue. Black Friday & Cyber Monday are where it is at! These two highly anticipated events really opened my eyes to the things that are possible with merch. Cyber monday we sold over 100 shirts in 24 hours setting a record! They has some serious problems keeping up in December as it really started to pick up. It seemed as if they were either running out of shirts to print on or simply could not keep up with demand but they slowly stopped most of the top selling shirts to help slow down the craze that they were having which affected about 30 of my designs… o well we still finished really well!

 

  1. Shopify Store – Had an amazing first real month with the shopify store finishing the month with 39 sales! I will show my dashboard from month to month so you can follow my progress and I will be showing more each month as I really start to perfect the process and get a solid customer base built. I can tell you the things that I am currently focusing the most on are the following:
    1. Building an email list
    2. Building an Instagram following
    3. Driving Traffic with facebook ads using the facebook pixel (this is the most difficult but I am getting better with it and when it works it feels really good to see the sales come in!)

My Current Number which I will update from month to month are as follows:

Facebook: 264
Instagram: 5107
Email List: 103

 

  1. eBay – Still on 10 day shipping and handling time not doing much right now however the income I bring in from this covers all of my office expenses and software which is awesome! I will be unloading 380 items when I  return from in March by running a huge sale to move as much of my inventory as possible so that should be fun to share as well!
  2. Instagram Course- Building my new course took up a majority of my month. After doing so much research on how to make it work for a business I acquired so much information on the topic that I decided to create another Udemy course to sell to other entrepreneurs and It really is kind of a test to see how the platform will work as an income source.
  3. Pinterest – has been a huge factor of getting noticed this I have been spending more time working on pins and writing new content for the blog and it is really paying off. You can read my Tops Tips on how to get more Pinterest followers and how I grew my account to over 6000 followers in 6 months here

Monthly Income Report – November 2016

Monthly Income Report – November 2016

Hello everyone!

Another great month on the books I did not see much growth this month however focused on maintenance of my t-shirts and growing other area of my business. It is great to see that Merch by Amazon was able to provide a steady stream of income for me even with putting very little effort into new designs.

Much of my time was spent on my Shopify Store, Instagram, & putting together my new Merch by Amazon Course on Udemy.

All and all I had a fantastic month and spent a lot of time traveling around the state and with family for thanksgiving which was a great time!

Now lets sum up the month:

  1. Merch by Amazon – Like always has been an awesome opportunity for me and I am so grateful to be able to create and place my designs on their site and throughout the world soon! This is the closest thing to passive income I have ever experienced and I can literally just let it sit now and make money or keep uploading and growing my potential inventory. There has been a major influx on sales starting black Friday and I am almost selling double the amount of shirts I usually do and my goal for the month of December is to upload an additional 200 designs. So it should be exciting to see if I can see more growth in the months to come!
  2. Shopify Store – Added new designs and started working with my first social influencer where I will be getting content from her in the form for of  high quality photos and access to her audience every month in exchange for sending her free SWAG. I will be reporting about this more in the future in videos. I have  decided to not link to the actual site becuase it will show inaccurate traffic in my reports.
  3. eBay store is still seeing frequent sales however this is currently just a side inventory that I am slowly selling off. It is great to know I can come back to this at any time if I need to however my focus has changed to digital products as I am seeing much better returns and more success at the current moment.
  4. Pinterest has been a huge factor of getting noticed this I have been spending more time working on pins and writing new content for the blog and it is really paying off. You can read my Tops Tips on how to get more Pinterest followers and how I grew my account to over 6000 followers in 6 months here
  5. Invested in the iPad Pro & Apple Pen this month! Very excited to start using these along with procreate and Adobe sketch. I will be doing live streams from time to time showing how I use them!

Monthly Income Report – October 2016

Monthly Income Report – October 2016

 

Hello everyone!

I am super excited to share another amazing month with you!

I am still surprised to see my income continue growing and believe this will be my best month on the books this year. This is totally fine and it was a great learning experience  for me. There are many up’s and downs when running an online business and I truly believe you have to keep pushing and working on the areas that are important to you.

Now lets some up the month:

  1. Merch by Amazon – has continued to be an amazing source of passive income and is allowing me to focus on other income streams. I work on this a few days per week however I have been spending more time working on my side project.
  2. Shopify Store – Fully up and running, I will share this site name in the months to come however while this launches I really want to be able to see clear data from traffic that is coming to my site. I am however very excited about this and will share all of the strategies that I am using to build my Shopify store, fulfill the inventory, and build social media accounts.
  3. eBay has also continued to be a semi passive source over the last 2 months and is still bringing in sales from the listing that I had put up months ago I still have quite a few listings up (over 350!) and the next month or so is usually the busiest so it will be nice to see the extra sales.
  4. Pinterest has been a huge factor of getting noticed this I have been spending more time working on pins and writing new content for the blog and it is really paying off. You can read my Tops Tips on how to get more Pinterest followers and how I grew my account to over 6000 followers in 6 months here
  5. New Website Design – I am very proud of the new design and want to hear your feedback! I spent quite a deal of my time this month making my website more user friendly and optimizing it for mobile users. I feel it is easier on the eyes and  ore organized.

September 2016 – Monthly Income Report – My Journey Making Money Online

copy-of-copy-of-copy-of-sales-update-video-cover

Hello Everyone!

I am very excited to share what has been happening in the last couple of weeks in my buisness and how it is continuing to grow in almost all areas, also September was a my best month to date on the books! I want to say thank you for everyone that has followed me along the way and for anyone new, welcome! You will see in this report that I have seen a shift in my buisness towards Merch by Amazon, this is because there has been so much growth potential that it forced me to pay attention to it at a much greater level.  I will break down my main focus thoughts below on what I have been up to!

  1. Merch by Amazon- The majority of my time was spent on Merch this month and added over 300 new designs. I started using Adobe Illustrator this month and it was surprisingly easy to learn and much easier to maneuver then its free counter part GIMP. Learning this software has enabled me to pump out new designs much faster and also has given me a much better understanding of the design aspect and I have been able to put together some much neater and In my mind catchier shirt designs.
  2. Launching a Clothing Brand – I have started a side project that will be based around an recreational niche to build social media accounts up so that I can launch a brand around the following. I have started research on company’s that can provide other products in the future and at the very least be prepared when Amazon launches other products like tank tops, hoodies, and hats as I feel driving traffic will be more essential than ever as the platform evolves over time.
  3. Ebay- all I really did this month was ship items that sold and because my inventory was around 500 items I was able to have a pretty good month! I have been holding my store at a 20% off sale and am starting to clear out some of the inventory that I have at the moment and am going to be more selective in the future when I buy and list focusing on vintage clothing and clothing from the 90’s. I will not be doing much with eBay for the next few months as mu main focus right now is to maximize my position on Merch by Amazon early. I will be back to this soon though and will continue to show my sales on YouTube!

What a month! August was simply a great month for me overall. Summer was here I was able to enjoy being in nature and enjoying summer more than I ever had before. I was able to go to my favorite beer festival and spend tons of time with family & friends in the Adirondacks. It was really a moment for me this month when I realized how awesome being self employed really is and how happy I am that I took a chance and started this new venture. Even though I did all these great things I still had to make time for my business and realized I can shift my focus to different areas depending on what is happening with my life.
I honestly only put effort into two areas of my business this month:

  1. Merch by Amazon- I was able to get over 200 new designs up this month after switching to Adobe Illustrator and it gave me a massive growth opportunity and you will see in next months report how massive I was able to push sales even after almost doubling this month!
  2. YouTube – I was able to work on video in bulk then and and release when i was away from my home office. This was great because I was able to address many of my Subscribers questions that I have been logging  and  I received a ton of great feedback.

With eBay all I really did this month was ship items that sold and because my inventory was around 600 items I was able to have a pretty good month!

Oh July!

This will definitely be one of my lightest income reports that you will see in the next 6 months. It was a tough month to stay disciplined as the weather was amazing in the 90’s almost everyday of the month in New York which is very rare and lots of things to do! However I do feel confident my month was not wasted i did get 100 new designs up on Merch by Amazon which is starting to pay off in the last week or so which I am very excited about and you will see the growth in the future reports because of it.  I only put up about 100 listings on eBay in the month of July bringing my store inventory to 600 items to close the month.  Without talking much more lets get down to the numbers below. I did see very good growth in many areas that I am happy about outside of revenue!

June 2016 – Monthly Income Report – Making Money Online

 

Report 2

Let me start off by saying how grateful I am to be writing this report this month. I had a really amazing month in sales and In life!
I feel so lucky to be able to have the tie and freedom to do what I love everyday and see the results coming in and paying off. This months numbers rocked!  I actually was sick with shingles for 2 weeks out of the month and did very little work however I was still able to do well because I had some inventory built up form the previous months, I kept expenses low, and Merch by Amazon is continuing to grow and is producing higher numbers every week!

Even though eBay input was limited I put efforts into other area’s of my business this month like Youtube, Social Media, and Merch on the digital side of the buisness and will continue to see that work pay off in the long run so I look forward to sharing the effects in the months to come.

I am running a GIVEAWAY this month to celebrate everyone who has been following me on the website and Youtube! If you have not already signed up go to this link for a chance to win. You have until July 15th to submit and entry.

The one thing that is growing slower than I expected is the website traffic, however it as only at month 3 so I will continue to add content and value and know that I will get more search results and new readers in the long term and hope that it Adds value to others lives and buisness.

Now, On to the statistics!

Social Media Growth

This is another area I have been working on growing across the board and have started to see some good growth in followers and really wanted to track this also to see how my strategies were working and to look back and see the growth I was gaining in each account in relation to the amount of effort or tactics I used in that month.

The month of June went very well for me in all areas including social media. As you can see there was some good growth on all accounts from the previous month. The largest growth was with Pinterest. I was able to focus on this and see a growth in over 1000 followers in 1 month! I have created a group board and that is really starting to pick up and I am seeing lots of Repins and Follows from that which is very nice to see. I am also on the Verge of reaching 1000 Youtube subscribers this month which is AMAZING and I am so thankful to everyone that has been following my journey so far and I look to reach at least 5000 subscribers by 2017.
