Income Report for March 2017
I’m making my income reports, including traffic numbers, public. That way, anyone thinking of starting something similar can see real world numbers. There are a lot of other sites sharing their income, so why does the world need another one?
I’m sharing the figures from month 1, which isn’t that common. Also, I can’t see many income reports from mobile app developers. So I’m hoping that this is something unique.
My hope is that these reports will inspire someone else to try something themselves. Please let me know if you think I can improve them. I’m always looking for ways to improve.
Happy beyond belief that I’ve made money online from software that I have written. Yep, you read that right, this site has finally made money from something other than adverts. Not a lot, but my first sale on CodeCanyon was completed. The one sale was only worth £4.99, but we all have to start somewhere. The trick will be to repeat it!
I’ve also treat myself to a new MacBook Pro. I won’t be putting that down on the balance sheet for this site, as it’s a huge cost
Finally, I’m slowly managing to spend more time on this project. Nowhere near the hours I was once working, but more than the 0 from last month.
Hours this month
As always, I track the hours I’m spending on this project. It helps me track “return on investment” and highlights how much effort is required for something like this.
|Income Report for February 2017||1|
|Setting up the MacBook||15 hours|
Total Hours this month – 16
Traffic for MM YY
None of my pages made it on reddit or alike this month, so no big spoke. Virtually the same as last month.
Also almost identical to last months.
Again, continuing the trend of informational pages being viewed more often than tutorials.
Total Income £5.59
|Site Hosting||£1.25 (£14.99 a year)|
Total Expenses £1.25
Profit over time
Total Profit £5.59 – £1.25 = £4.34
What a lovely uptick. I hope another positive month appears before too long!
First ever month of profit! Ad income is also on the rise.
Visitors have dropped slightly this month, but as I’ve put in zero effort, I can’t be shocked.
Lessons learned this month
It is an absolutely amazing feeling to see your first sale through.
Progress this month
I didn’t set myself any targets this month as I was in no position to achieve anything.
Target for the next month
This month I’m only going to set myself 2 hopefully very achievable ones.
- Finish setting up the MacBook so I can develop both iOS and Android React Native apps.
- Update my single Code Canyon release to be both iOS and Android.
