Here is a breakdown of my online income for January 2012.
Google Adsense – $362.75
Affiliate Income – $708.89
Brokered Ads – $62.24
Direct Ads- $3396.17
Total – $4530.05
My online income was up quite a bit this month which was a pleasant surprise. The addition of Investorz Blog plus a larger than normal amount of affiliate income was responsible for most of the increase. I’m still making about 95% of my affiliate income from Bank Bonuses, if I can start making some decent affiliate income from Investorz Blog and My Retirement Blog as well then I should start making $1000 a month from affiliate income.
Some people are wanting to know about my expenses. My biggest expense is the 25% commission I pay on most of my ads. That was about $500 last month. I don’t worry about this expense because it only goes up when my income goes up. Other than that last month I spent $20 for some writing, $10 for carnival submissions, and $5 on Fiverr to have Investorz Blog moved to my new host. I’m going to pay for more staff writing this month but otherwise my expenses shouldn’t go up. Other than that my expenses are pretty minimal.

Looks like you’re doing good!
Who negotiates your direct ads? Who do you use for that? Thanks!
Crystal of Budgeting in the Fun Stuff handles most of my ads for me. This has worked out very well for me.
Sweet, I thought that may be who you use. I might have to try that!
Thanks so much.
Can you write a post on how to increase affiliate income?
My affiliate income is at the big old goose egg. 🙁
I can write one but I’m not sure how helpful it will be. My affiliate income is kinda random and I don’t really know how much any strategies I have affect it.
Wow, nicely done! Almost $700 more than last month.
Thanks. I’d like to continue the upward trend.
You’re just getting started. If you stay active with Yakezie you will start having some success with your blog.
Way to kick butt. I am going to be looking into financial affiliate income since you have inspired me to check it out. I will publish what I find out.
Congrats on the income. Do you have any suggestions for ways to improve AdSense income? Mine is much less than $100 per month.
Wow – that is great income. I wish we could come anywhere close to these numbers!
