Last 3 months Blog pageviews:
Social Media Stats for Ladies Make Money Online
Instagram – 268 followers – Last checking we had 270- Fail – We are working o it – although not a priority.
Pinterest – 6, 109 followers – Last checking we had 5,291 followers–WIN
Twitter – 1, 041 Followers – Last checking we had 910 followers – WIN – not a big jump
I am really happy with my Pinterest followers. According to Carly who went from zero to 200 K page views per month, it’s not about the number of followers you have, but the pinning strategies you use which makes up for a great Pinterest plan. This is the best investment I have made to date. Our previous goal of getting 10,000 followers fell short!
My Facebook group is another big one! I am hoping to also get about 10,000 amazing women who are focusing on growing and helping each other. I did get rid of a lot of people that were purely self–promoting! This means my account will take a little longer to grow as I am really picky about those that join. If you are not yet part of our- Facebook Group, don’t forget to join us. It’s a great community to share and grow your biz!
I did decide that I really wanted to grow my Facebook page and reach. I am now getting some traffic from my Facebook page thanks to an amazing strategy I am using. I am on a mission to grow my page to over 100, 000 likes. These will be targeted likes that will likely increase my page views. My full strategy is thanks to Brittany Ann from Equipped Godly!
Our goal was to get featured on two blogs per month. Because we are going in a different direction with our blog, we are putting this on hold. However, we are accepting guest blog posts on our site. If you would like to submit a post check out this page: Guest Posting!

10 Ways I made money on my blog in the last few months
- I grew my email list. I focused on creating FREEBIES that helped increase my email list to over 3000 engaged subscribers. And the majority of my affiliate sales came from me emailing my list directly.
- I created great content that readers wanted. To find out exactly what my readers wanted, I dug deep into my Google Analytics and I found posts that were doing really well. I created 3 to 4 more similar topics and shared them on Pinterest and with my email list. This gave me more traffic and more income.
- I put all my efforts into learning Pinterest and I think I have a strategy that is working well for me and it is bringing me consistent blog traffic.
- I revisited old blog posts and brought them back to life by editing, updating with current information and replacing images. A great example is this one: How to make consistent sales with your Affiliate Blog posts. I updated this with affiliate links.
- Speaking of Affiliate links. I revisited a course I took a while back to learn more about Affiliate marketing and tweaked a few strategies as mentioned in the course, and my Affiliate Income almost doubled.In order to make money with a blog, you need to focus on areas that matter.
- I networked with other bloggers in a few Facebook groups and relationships were built. This improved the number of people who shared my content, which meant more sales for me. Helping each other out is the goal. It’s not a competition but instead community.
- I worked on giving out more free information to my readers. This led me to create 2 FREE email courses that my readers love. I am working on a third one. This has helped grow my community. People love free.
- In order to make money with a blog, you need to find your tribe. Who is your target audience? What do they want and need? How can you help them? I worked hard on finding out who my readers were.
- Make money with a blog by creating your own products that readers will love. Due to popular demand, my course Hobby to Biz was born! A course designed to help you go from 10 cents per month to $1000 per month in just 60 days. I walk you through the steps to finally make money with a blog and grow it from there.
- I made a plan on how I was going to make money with a blog and worked towards that goal. These were small actionable tips that allowed me to meet monthly goals. I discuss this more in my new course Hobby to Biz!
