  • Oct-11 $460.00
  • Nov-11 $300.00
  • Dec-11 $220.00 Didn’t realize it, but my sales funnel had a glitch and wasn’t sending traffic my way. This accounts for the unusually poor figures for Dec 2011. Fixed this in mid-Jan 2012. Average earnings for second year: $332/month
  • Jan-12 $380.00 Around New Years 2012, I went through my two main sites and made it so that every article had links to a couple of other articles, not just the sales page. This resulted in a traffic boost of about 20%.
  • Feb-12 $980.00 Added video series and raised price of TT package to $30 on Feb 1st.

When Alex raised the price of his e-book, his profits soared.

  • Mar-12 $930.00
  • Apr-12 $870.00
  • May-12 $1,020.00 Started using Fiverr for some SEO stuff, mainly backlinks. Resulted in another 20% traffic boost.
  • Jun-12 $840.00
  • Jul-12 $1,470.00
  • Aug-12 $970.00
  • Sep-12 $1,230.00
  • Oct-12 $1,290.00
  • Nov-12 $960.00 Hired a guy to take a look at my website and see if he could increase conversions. It didn’t work very well (see the WSO text), which is what accounts for the drop this month.
  • Dec-12 $1,080.00 Average Earnings for third year: $1001/month
