I definitely have mixed emotions about my online passive income earnings for October. For one, they are my highest earnings so far and I am excited about that, but they are seasonal earnings and that season is now over.
I know that it is too early to tell how November will go with my earnings, but so far it’s a far cry from what I earned in October because of my Halloween sites and it’s got me frustrated already. I knew this was going to happen and all I can really do is scale mu efforts up for next Halloween (earlier than I did this year) and try to double or triple what I earned this year.
Here are my passive income earnings for October:
Content sites (eHow, Suite 101, Associated Content): $327.69
Last Month: $294.17
Affiliate Commissions and Adsense: $597.71
Last Month: $213.69
Total Passive Income Earnings: $925.40
Total Last Month: $507.86
(Per day average in September was $16.93 and in October was $29.85)
I would really love to see my earnings stay this high for next month, but unless some of my Amazon sites really take off as it gets later in the month for Christmas shopping, I don’t think I will be anywhere as close to these amounts for November.
My Plans for November
Right now I am working on the Fall Frenzy writing challenge that is going on at Keyword Academy and have already published over 50,000 words since October 15. My goal is to publish 200K words before the end of the year since I know that come February I won’t be able to work on my sites very much for quite awhile. I am already seeing improvements in my rankings from this challenge.
I am also trying to concentrate on my Amazon sites as well as my other physical product niche sites that I have so that I can hopefully make some money from Christmas shopping season from them. I am also continuing to work on my Easy Paycheck Formula article marketing and seeing pretty good results with the few articles that I do have up. I have made several sales through Amazon already and am just looking for more products to promote.
I know that I said that I was going to start my PLR ATM case study in November, but it may have to wait another month or so. I just don’t have time to squeeze it in right now and rather focus on my websites for Christmas shopping than my PLR store. I will eventually get there and I know several people who have already started and finished the course and making money from their PLR stores, so it seems to be a pretty good course.
I also hope to take a few days off around Thanksgiving and spend some more time with the family. For me, it’s actually hard to not turn the computer on and work, but I think a few days (or even just a day) away will help.
What are your plans for November? Are you frantically trying to get some Hubs or Squidoo lenses up for Christmas or do you have a few Christmas sites you are working on?
