Passive Project Update 8: First Month To Score $100

Share To Remember!

I have been into affiliate marketing for a very short time! For those who know me will know that i was never into niche site industry. I was a freelancer and i was happy with my life. Then i came into affiliate marketing and everything changed. I built Passive Journal and currently, Passive Journal is growing at a great pace which is awesome.

Anyway, i have finally decided….

It is time to go for a Passive Project. And I am not going to target only Amazon Associate Program for this website. I am going to target Amazon Associate & Google Adsense.

I have been lazy lately!

Well not actually! Passive Journal is focusing a lot on other business aspects and opportunities these days and that’s why i was unable to publish new posts on our blog! Apologies.

Now, I have exciting news to share with you today. Before going deep, let’s see the earning screenshot of this month (until today)!

This is the earning screenshot from Amazon Affiliate Dashboard for the last 30 days.

As you can see, we already received $83.94 on our account and only 12 of the 21 items have been shipped. So more money will come soon!

Overall, I am not too happy with the progress of this site. It is me to be honest if I think about it. I couldn’t use my team for anything other than the content as I promised to you guys that I will do everything for this Passive Project. That made it slow.

Anyways, at last, we made it to $100/month. That’s not bad, right?

Now, what were our goals for March? We had two specific goals.

  • Getting 10 Backlinks
  • Publishing 5 articles

Let’s look at the backlink profile from Majestic:

In case you forgot, we had 28 backlinks in February. Now it is 39. So yes, mission accomplished. All of the backlinks came from Guest Posts and nothing else!

Now, the second target for March was to publish 5 more articles. This is easy. We have a ready team of content writers but guess what?

I couldn’t do it. I published only one article in March.

All of our content writers were super busy with orders and I couldn’t manage time to make things work. My fault for sure. We need more writers I guess.

I am not setting any specific goals for April. I will let this site grow organically for a bit before I do anything. I have a feeling that the site might touch $200 next month.

I will be super busy with other projects so it would not be wise for me to set a plan. Therefore, I will do nothing but track earnings for the next month.

Are you guys running on this same path? What’s the status of your sites? Let me know in the comments.

I will have a lot of updates for you real soon (not about Passive Project, about other sides of our business).

Till then, keep growing your income.
