Since the forum has been restarted from scratch I won’t be able to bring back my old progress report from the past. But just to give you guys an insight. This site is in the gardening niche and I have started it back in SEPT 2020.
In 2021 we did about:
Total Income : $28000
Expense: $10500 (Including content of 9000$)
Here is the traffic and articles insight of last year.
Now bringing in the new year of 2022, the idea is to scale the income to 10000$ every month.
So, here is the insight for last month to begin with:
Progress update in January 2022: Month 17
Articles written this month: 42
Total number of articles: 513
Word count written last month: 85000(Rounded off)
Total Revenue: 2592$ (Amazon: $206 Adthrive: $2386)
Expenses for the month: 900$ (Hosting: 40$, Plugins and theme: 30$, Content: 830$)
Net profit: Approx 1692$
December was the bottom of the traffic period, the traffic seems to have started climbing back up. It’s already near the peak of last summer and I am super excited about what this season brings in. The season kicks in by March and that should bring in a lot more visitors.
Also, my articles are constantly maturing and I have already got 200 matured articles with lots more in the pipeline of maturity. One year of consistent hard work should start ripping rewards by the end of this month.
Earning-wise, January was an unexpected bump and I got the same level of earning as I had in December. Although the RPM went down by 35% on average, the rise in traffic compensated well.
My plan for this June is to hit that 8-10k$ mark every month and that should be possible with lots of content produced throughout 2021 which are constantly climbing up in the rankings. I am also working on the info product on the sidelines which should be ready by June as well. So, let’s see what that brings in.
Also, the plan for the content this year is really simple, I ended Jan with 500+ articles and I want to reach that 1000 article mark by the year-end. So, lots of new content, own pictures, and a lot more coming this year!
The overall grand plan is to make this site one of the largest, dominating, and really authoritative in the niche making it tough to compete with.
