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.
