Products

Teachable Products

Total Teachable Revenue: $268 ($289)

This was mostly from tripwires and welcome sequence offers.

Etsy Products

Total Etsy Revenue: $13 ($30)

Products overall: $281 ($319)

Total income: $3978.05 ($2294.08)

Income per subscriber: $.72 ($.34)

This is the highest number I’ve ever had here, but truly it has nothing to do with my email list. Most of my income this month came from Mediavine because of Pinterest traffic (in other words, a pin going viral).

Income per thousand pageviews: $53.75 ($49.87)

This is the highest number here as well. This is pretty good, because the income was really connected to pageviews this month. Would love to have 70k pageviews every month!

Monthly expenses:

  • Email (Convertkit): $99
  • : $13.60 (use  and discount code KSDISC to save 20%)
  • Teachable: $159
  • Canva: $12.53
  • WordPress Support from iMark Interactive: $27
  • Jasper AI: $59
  • Income School: $24.99
  • Leadpages: $55.37
  • Siteground Hosting: $34.99
  • Grow Social: $34 (one time fee for social sharing plugin through Mediavine)

Total expenses: $519.48 ($361.49)

Wow, things have gotten expensive! I am seriously going to need to look at where I can cut back. This is fine for a mega bucks blog but I’m not there yet.

Net blog income: $3458.57 ($1932.59)

Thoughts about this month’s income report:

This month was my highest revenue month yet, but it felt very precarious because it was all based on a bit of viral Pinterest traffic to pins that don’t drive people to my email list.

Did I Meet my Goals for October

In October I had set three big goals: to set up a Betterhelp launch, to set up a Social Anxiety Masterclass launch, and to work on the Abundance bundle for the Becoming Boss Mastermind. I did accomplish all these goals.

Goals for November:

  • Social skills tripwire sequence
  • Public speaking sequence
  • CBT sequence
  • Tik Tok Series
