April 2023 Blog Income Report: $1919.75


Income Report for April 2023

Welcome to my April 2023 blog income report! Here I am reporting on the income I have made from my primary website About Social Anxiety.

April STATS:

Note: The numbers in parentheses are from the same month in the previous year. I’m retrieving these numbers from Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Semrush, Convertkit, and my social media platforms.

Pageviews: 45,791 (53,376)

Sessions: 40,107 (45,812)

Users: 36,268 (40,583)

Organic Sessions (Google):  18,532 (11,729)

Social Sessions: 11,703 (19,461)

Mailing List Subscribers: 4939 (6145)

This number is lower due to me removing inactive subscribers, something that I had not done for a very long time with my list.

Social Media

As noted in previous months I won’t report these numbers until I’m caught up on these reports (I’m doing retrospectively).

Posts published: 2 (1)

I posted two new posts this month, which is what I had determined was my bare minimum during times when I’m overhwhelmed with other tasks.

Google Search Console stats

Google Search Console total impressions: 773k (377k)

Google Search Console total clicks: 17.7k (10.6k)

Average Click through rate: 2.3% (2.8%)

Average Position: 15.8 (20.8)

It looks like I was doing very well in April 2023 compared to April 2022 in terms of Google search. I attribute this to doing the P24 program from Income School.

SEMRUSH stats

I don’t have these numbers right now because I’m doing this report retrospectively.

April BLOG INCOME REPORT:

Advertising

Mediavine: $905.86 ($1322.22)

Pageview RPM: $22.52 ($28.78)

It looks like Mediavine was down slightly from 2022. This matches up with the fact that my pageviews were also lower than that month.

Affiliates

Amazon OVERALL: $147.63 ($140.11)

This includes the US, UK, and Canadian programs. The majority is coming from the US and is split between commissions and bounties (mostly Audible and Kindle).

Betterhelp: $0 ($0) and 6 conversions.

It’s interesting, April seems to be a really bad month for Betterhelp signups.

ShareASale: 0 (0)

Awin:  $2.26 ($7.02)

Social Self: $603 ($133.50)

Affiliates Overall: $752.89 ($280.63)

So affiliates did pretty well in April 2023! I think this was mainly due to an influx of my people finding the Social Self links that I’m promoting on my website. Since I did not have a social skills course I decided it would be good to promote one from somebody else.

Products

Teachable Products

Total Teachable Revenue: $219 ($294.83)

So these products were mostly from my CBT tripwire as well as one full price Masterclass course purchase.

Etsy Products

Total Etsy Revenue: $42 ($6)

Most of my Etsy revenue from this month came from my Sunburst Gratitude worksheet.

Products overall: $261 ($300.83)

So my product sales in April 2023 were pretty much flat from the previous year.

Total income: $c ($1903.68)

Income per subscriber: $0.38 ($0.31)

Income per thousand pageviews: $42.66 ($35.90)

Monthly expenses:

  • Email (Convertkit): $99
  • Leadpages: $55.37
  • Jasper AI: $30.17
  • Teachable: $59
  • Canva: $12.58
  • Income School: $24.99
  • Keysearch: $13.60
  • Siteground Hosting: $29.99
  • WordPress Support from iMark Interactive: $27

Total expenses: $351.70 ($292.99)

Net blog income: $1568.05 ($1610.69)

Thoughts about this month’s income report:

Overall this month was pretty flat compared to the income from the previous year.

Did I Meet my Goals for April?

I had no goals other than writing posts.

Goals for May:

Back in April 2022 I was talking about adding in an affiliate program in Teachable. I’ll talk more about this in a later report, but as of this report I had not done that and really was not doing anything new at this point.
