Monthly Income Report – April 2017
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.
April was a solid month for setting up a framework for the summer. I have been putting new focus on some different areas of my work and splitting time between some of my income sources.
Check out the full breakdown below!
Let’s sum up the month:
Merch by Amazon – It looks like this is really starting to average out for me around the same income range. This month I designed and loaded about 100 new designs in the mothers day niche which is really starting to pick up and will hopefully have a positive effect on sales the first 2 weeks of May.
- Shopify Store – Sale have been steady in my store. I am now spending ZERO dollars on ads in my store to see how it pans out for the rest of the summer. My concentration has been on growing organically through social media and content marketing and it is a bit slower of a process however it has reduced overhead and is sustaining itself nicely. I also launched a new product this month and the feedback has been super positive which is amazing!
My Current Numbers which I will update from month to month are as follows:
Shopify Store #1 STATS:
- Facebook: 2322 +173
- Instagram: 9258 +500
- Email List: 644 +153v
- eBay -Store is Open for business and I have been thrifting and listing again. We saw a small amount of growth over last month and the goal is to get the number to $2000 in sales by July 1st. I have a good amount of inventory in the store around 350 items and around 50 to list. I have a move planned in June so it may take untill the end of June/July before I can really start to ramp up the inventory again so we will see how these numbers go with limited effort put into the store until then.
- 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.
