Hi all & happy holidays! Over the past couple of months, I have been getting questions on blogging, pinning, & how to make money from blogging. I thought I would answer one of those questions now & let you in on what I’m making on my blog and how I’m doing it!

If you want to learn how to start a money making blog, check out my blog post here for step by step instructions!

The question you might be asking is “Why share?”. Well, my simple answer is why not! I’m not one that wants to hide the ‘secrets’ to success, I want other people to start blogging, start their own business & know it’s not completely impossible. Honestly, if I can do it, so can you!

So, how was business income in November of 2017?

I earned $18,160.74 blogging and online in November!

Although I found myself in a bit of a slump in November, I did start a few new things and it really was a great month all around.

This was due to a few different things that happened and that I’ve been working on lately:

  • November is a kickoff of the holiday season which is amazing for seasonal and food bloggers, but not the best for health & fitness.
  • In addition to the Keto in Five ebooks (which have had such an amazing response from all of you who have purchased them!) I started selling low carb & keto meal plans as well. The response has been great so far & I’m excited to see how they fair in the new year.
  • Thanks to all the helpful comments on my blog posts, I have also added a vegan & vegetarian keto ebook, recipes & meal plans to the blog. This was exciting to be able to reach people with different ways of eating while still staying keto (which can seem like a challenge to most people). This happened at the tailend of November, so I am hoping to see a bigger jump in sales in the upcoming months.
  • I addition to my Pinterest, I’m spending more time on Facebook. I created a new facebook group for low carbers to share recipes, ask questions and more! Come join here.

My Biggest Challenge

I have a large email list, but am still not sure what to do with it or how to handle it! I feel like my emails don’t have a great open or click rate so I don’t focus on it as much as I should. It is definitely a goal of mine for the new year to get my email list together!

How I Changed My Mind on Affiliate Marketing

One of my favorite bloggers, Michelle, earns over $50,000 a month through affiliate marketing, and she shares all of her best tips in this course. Yes, you read that right. $50K A MONTH! WHAT?!

Before taking this course I was making maybe $50 a month with affiliate links which was so confusing because of my high traffic numbers. After taking Michelle’s course I am now making a minimum $10K a month (yes, really!!!) & I only just finished the course a couple of months ago! Every day I am earning more than before because of her easy to follow tips & guidance.

In her course, there are 6 modules, over 30 lessons, over 20 worksheets, bonuses, an extremely helpful exclusive Facebook group, and more, and she goes through everything when it comes to affiliate marketing, such as:

  • What affiliate marketing is and how it works
  • Why affiliate marketing is great
  • The exact steps she’s taken to earn over $300,000 from a single blog post
  • How to pick the right affiliate products to promote
  • How to increase conversions
  • How to build trust and not lose followers
  • Required disclosures that you need to know about
  • The one major tool you need for affiliate marketing
  • Different strategies to use to promote your affiliate products
  • How to use Pinterest to succeed at affiliate marketing (yes, this includes the newest Pinterest affiliate rules!)

This course is worth the time & money you want to get serious about affiliate marketing – it also has a money-back guarantee so you really have nothing to lose by signing up & seeing for yourself!

Goals for December & 2018

I would like to see myself diversifying in upcoming months. Continuing the success of my current affiliates is a must, but I would like to add different streams to my portfolio.

As stated above, I NEED to get my act together with emails.
