Inspired by other bloggers who share their online income every month in a report detailing how much money they made online and how they made it, I thought that I would do the same here on Five Green Lizards. This serves two main purposes.
First, for myself, it keeps me accountable to my goals and also helps encourage me when I can look back and see how far I have come. Seeing my monthly online income increasing is a great motivator to keep working hard.
Secondly, I really want to help others start earning money online too. Personally I love to read other websites and blog detailing how they make their money online. It gives me new ideas and I always learn a valuable tip or two. That is what I am striving to achieve here by detailing my earnings. I want others to read what I am doing and take away an idea or two that they can implement on their blogs and websites, hopefully increasing their earnings too.
One of the best tools I use that really started bringing traffic to my pages and helped me start making consistent sales was when I started using the Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool in Nov 2011. It was probably the #1 reason I have been able to make money online this year. I use it everyday and I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m getting. The best thing it does for me is tell me what phrases have LOW COMPETITION in my topic of choice. This allows me to get on the first page of Google for my topic, which is where all the traffic is, thus giving me a better chance to make sales.
But if you just starting out and you need some step by step direction of how to even start your own blog or website, then I recommend the step by step video tutorial called BPU101 – which stands for Blogging Your Passion 101. For a limited time you can save 50% with the coupon code “101Sale”.
I know you came to this page to see my 2012 Online Income Report: how much money I’m making online and how I’m making that money, so let’s get to it. Each month reports how much I was PAID in that month, which reflects earnings from 60-90 days prior depending on the company. Almost every company will pay you 60-90 days later to allow for returns, etc. For example, you’ll notice that my February earnings were higher than many of the other months. This is because these include many payments from the Christmas shopping season in Nov-Dec 2011.
