ShoutMeLoud Monthly Income Report August 2010

ShoutMeLoud Monthly Income Report August 2010

Like every month we are again sharing our monthly income report which is done in order to keep a track of our own progress and give an idea to budding blogger that how much money you can make from Blogging in a month.

My monthly income report consist of money which I make from all the blog under our Blog network and set of services which I offer.

Here is the breakdown of August income report:

  • Google Adsense:                              660$
  • Affiliate marketing:                         700$
  • Thesis Customization Service:              650$
  • BlogSpot to WordPress Service:           750$
  • Buysellads + Direct Advertisement:     900$
  • Infolinks:                                         20$
  • WordPress SEO :              200$
  • ———————————————————–
  • Total :                                            3880$

One thing which really impressed me this month is Adsense which is increased by almost $100+ and with CallingAllgeeks becoming better day by day, I can expect it to make the some money which Shoutmeloud is making from Adsense. Though before you ask why so less with adsense, we use only one adsense unit and that’s one of the major reason for low earning with Adsense. Another reason which actually make sense is Shoutmeloud and CallingAllgeeks are adsense revenue sharing blog, and user participation is high. That means in almost 30-40% of posts it’s guest author adsense is running.

Meanwhile our expenses has also increased and right now my monthly blog expenses are close to 1000$. That includes employee salary and hosting cost.

I have also set up small office at home and here is the picture of my small Home office which is not yet ready but you can have a quick glance:

Right now I’m blogging with one Dell laptop and one Macbook Pro. Looking forward to buy one 32” LCD screen and few more gadgets which will cover my desk. Do send me your suggestion about the gadgets you would like to see on my desk.  You can also gift me one if you want. :)

We are working on new portals and new micro niche sites. Though all this take time and I will keep updating you like always about the latest development around Shoutmeloud Headquarter. :)

Do let us know how was your month of August in terms of revenue?

    Out of curiosity, how long would you say did it take you to go from making $0 to making $500, $1000, $2000+?

    http://www.youtube.com/user/labnol

    Cheers :)

  • Roch

  • sidduz

    Harsh Any suggestion for me :)

  • Rahul

    It is cute office. I am wishing to open small home office. I will probably doing in next two years.

  • Basant | Techno-Pulse

    Keep it up Harsh. Good luck for your other start-ups. You are an inspiration for many Indian bloggers like me.
    I’ve monetized with AdSense. Currently it’s $30/m. Any tips for improvement?
    Regarding gadget suggestions: You can go for a “thin-client”, incase you increase your employee strength, it’ll be a future proof investment.

  • Anup @ Hack Tutors

    Very nice report. Your desk cannot cover more gadgets now. Increase the desks! haha :D

  • Vijay

    Really proud to be like you and congrats for your monthly earnings and expenses.
    I don’t know what to suggest to fill your desk, hope the normal office desk will be with old employee photo, pencil stand, toys, USB, printers, Lamp stand and so on. I suggest to place any smart nature are child wallpaper backside in the wall. Back wall is looking smart empty. It should be placed with any one gadget or wallpaper. Not more than one :)

  • shashank

    awesome harsh ….
    Keep going aka marchin ahead :)
    hey any tips for me instore as a newbie blogger :?

  • Robert

    Congrats on another great month for you! I’m right behind you! if you take off a zero……..

    • Harsh Agrawal

      I wish you luck for next month and thanks for your comment. :)

  • indihow

    Awesome Harsh! I’m still wondering why we haven’t yet got a glimpse of your Adsense cheque :P
    btw August was great for me from an income point of view, and I completed blog/website projects worth nearly $350, which is my best in a month till date. Still going slow on the Adsense front though. Digital freelancing seems to be a feasible in-college income source to me :)

    Best of luck with your domain+hosting business too!

    • Harsh Agrawal

      I knew some one will come up and ask for adsense Check and one reason why I dont have is : My adsense goes to some other place and it goes directly into my bank account..
      Anyways I will try to take a screen of this month check…
      Meanhwile u can see one of my aff. check http://twitpic.com/1nmwox

      • indihow

        Cool! But Schoemaker didn’t have a car pic like you :P
        So you kinda jumped a step I guess :D

        • Harsh Agrawal

          Ha ha..But Shoemaker has lots of other things and I can’t even myself anyhow close in comparison with Shoemoney. He is a legend in online marketing.

  • Sathish @ TechieMania

    $3880 thats fantastic. I am just a starter here. Lets see when will i catch you up harsh :)

    • Harsh Agrawal

      I wish you lick Sathish. Make sure you follow your own View and your path.. Being original is path to success…

  • Clinton Jeff

  • Rahul @ MazaKaro

    Nice stats dude :)

    Please suggest me how I must increase my earnings. I earn hardly $200 per month :(

    • Harsh Agrawal

      Hey Rahul
      I had a look at your blog and here are few of my suggestions:
      Use Gocodes plugin for affiliate links
      Try to minimize your ads.. your blog kind of look spammy or made for ads… Focus more on content… may be you should consider increasing content size to 600px
      Work on your blog SEO…

      • Imran

        Harsh how about Pretty Links Wordpress Plugins for affiliate links.

      • aswin @ A New Tab

        Hi Please look at my blog and tell me if it is also too crowded with ads ? I am a beginner

    • Tinh

      I suggest you using Ninja Affiliate plugin
