Fridays with Vicky 116
February 2017, another month where we see fantastic earnings from women entrepreneurs.
These ladies are creating and selling their own products. They are monetizing massive amounts of traffic in creative ways.
Ad networks and affiliate programs are just two ways they make thousands of dollars each and every month.
Making over $216K together, let’s take a closer look at the women that makes this happen.
Michelle from Making Sense of Cents – $160,211.27
- Income $160,211.27
- Expenses $9,712.50
- Net Income $146,498.77
Michelle made, in February, what many dream of making in a year. In one month, she made $160K+ that is truly amazing! Michelle is not a beginner when it comes to online marketing, last year 2016, she made a total of $979,321, that’s close to a million from blogging. Well done!
She started like most of us, though, with the desire of making a $1000 a month, with hard work and dedication she has now gone far beyond that with her blog Making Sense of Cents.
Most of her income comes from her own product, affiliate marketing, advertising, and sponsorships.
This goes to show, that if you believe in something, work hard and stick with it, the sky truly is the limit.
Michelle, how is your mindset different now making $160K+ compared to when you were trying to make your first $1K?
Kristin from Believe in a Budget – $15,170.31
- Gross Income $15,170.31
- Expenses $2,938.95
- Net Income $12,231.36
Kristin is rocking another month making over $15K from her blog Belive in a Budget. She’s been debating back and forth if she should publish her income reports, but we are happy as long as she keeps doing it, they are a great inspiration to many.
Kristin is making her money from advertising, partnerships, her own courses, and products, but the majority comes from affiliate marketing. It has not always been like that but she likes the “passive income” of affiliate marketing and has made a great increase with it.
Kristin has mastered the Pinterest “game”, so we would like to ask,
Kristin, what’s your #1 tip when it comes to Pinterest?
Suzi from Rosevibe – $13,584
- Gross Income $13,584
- Expenses $34.95
- Net Income $13,549
Suzi, managing two blogs, her beauty blog and Rosevibe where she shares her income report and online journey.
Most her income comes from affiliate marketing and ad networks. With the new commission structure from Amazon, I’m interested to see if Suzi will see a big impact from this.
She has very low expenses and a ton of traffic, well done Suzi!
Suzi, what’s your take on the new Amazon structure, do you see a big difference in income for March?
