January 2018 Income Report
I am so excited to share my very first income report!
I’m publishing these income reports for 2 reasons. First one is to track my revenue and to analyze down the line where I’m performing well and where I’m not performing well. And the second reason is to inspire & motivate upcoming developers what are the possibilities they have.
I’m planning to publish these income reports till I reach five figures ($$$$$) income per month.
I have been in this business for a very long time, so this is not the first month (this is the first income report I’m sharing online). And it took me a lot of time & hard work to reach here, so it is not an overnight success.
All these revenues mentioned here are the successful payments made. Not just the numbers in my affiliate or some other accounts. These are the actual amounts paid out to my bank account.
Note: I’m sharing all these numbers & things I’ve done genuinely because it’s for my tracking/analysis down the line after few months or years.
Projects & Consultation : $1495 (PayPal Fees – $78.68) INR 86,685.89/-
Adsense : $192 – INR 12,179.79/-
Udemy : $479.05 – INR 29,181.69/-
Skillshare : $122.43 – INR 7,515.84/-
BNI Projects : INR 15,000/- (~$236)
Total revenue : INR 1,50,563.21/- in USD ~ $2350
Office Rent & Maintenance : INR 16,000/- in USD ~ $250
BNI Meeting Fees: INR 3,000/- in USD ~ $50
Phone Bills: INR 500/- in USD ~$10
These are the main expenses I’ve used for business, although I’m on yearly billing for my dedicated servers and email marketing services. So it is not counted as this months expense.
I’ve recommended these services to my clients so that I earn a small commission for recommending these services. I’m planning to recommend these services on my blog also. This is affiliate income so this amount will be paid after 30 or 45 days based on their payment schedule. I’m not considering these as this month’s revenue.
Little bit more insights about the revenue, How I made it so that it helps you to be on the right track.
Projects & Consultation
I’ve worked on few client projects in January which made me $1495.
Through Adsense I’ve received $192 payment, I want to improve this to $1500 per month. From this month onwards I’m accepting direct advertising on this blog which helps me to increase my overall revenue.
Past few months I’ve worked very hard for creating video courses to improve my passive income. This month I’ve received $479.05 payment, which is great I want to improve this to $1500 per month. And the good news is this is passive income, so no need to work except for clearing student doubts.
I’ve uploaded these courses to Skillshare, from skillshare I’ve received $122.43 payment.
