ShoutMeLoud Monthly Income Report : April 2009

Hello there,

Welcome to another monthly post of ShoutMeLoud income report. As my promise to keep up the transparency and to share what works for me in blogging, I’m sharing income report for this month. April was not as good as I expected in term of revenue. If you compare it with my last published revenue of February 2009, you would not be so excited.

Anyhow, lets see this as from Zero to something (Considering I started blogging in September last year, and ShoutMeLoud was started on 1st December)

In my last post I talked about affiliate marketing and I can see some increase in my affiliate marketing income.

Here is my monthly income report for April 2009

Program Money generated
Adsense Almost 120$
Infolinks 30$
Dreamhost referrals program 141$
Affiliate marketing 43$
Blogging services 160$
Private advertising 50$
Digital Point services 15$
Total 559$

The total earning is better then the last time. Though I can see a great decrease in my AdSense earning, It may be because I have limited the number of ads unit on shoutmeloud.

In the first half of the month, Infolinks earning was not very impressive, but In the last half of the month it got increased significantly.

You can read my review on Infolinks here:

    why is it that adsense remains to be a low earner for you inspite of excellent traffic levels and positioning of adsense ads right below the post !

    Congratulations for the earnings…

    i would like to know more on how to earn on Blogging Services/DP and affiliate marketing.

    I think i can help people in SEO,wordpress and other stuff.

    Can you let me konw how to start. From last 1 and half years of bloggin, i totally depend on Adsense and kontera/infolinks. Sometimes adbrite.

    I never earned on affiliate marketing/blogging services and regd private advertising. Though i have good traffic. I don’t get private advertisers booking 125X125 ads 🙁

    Any tips??

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Thanks Nihar.

      The best way to get client as mentioned by honey above is DP.

      Talking about Affiliate marketing, It’s better to sell/promote product according to your niche. Like Domain selling, web hosting , mobiles.
      Most of the paid programs you use, they have affiliate link attached.

      You can use Twitter or many forums to sell your 125*125 ad slots. The best advice is if you can’t sell it , go for ad slot exchange with other blogger in your niche. That will be utilization of ad space. 🙂

    Hey…in order to increase your infolinks’ earnings try changing your links form of underline to double underline links…you can easily do this by logging in to your publisher center…this should improve your CTR…

  5. Prasoon Joshi

    Very decent money 🙂
    I never knew Adsense could generate this kinda money for a blog, amazing. I think I should monetize my blog as well now, thanks for inspiring me 🙂
    What is ‘blogging services’ ?

    Great Going Harsh. It is really impressive to see how well you have used internal linking. All the best for the future.

  9. TechZoomIn

    Dude, Great that you earned almost 600 $ this month. Earning a lot fr om seo and blogging services is always handy to guys who know design and all the tricks.

  10. Prasanna

    Great man. Its good to know that you are making a full time leaving from blogging & related services. Its truly inspiring for others in the same niche. BTW, I wanted to know whether was any affect on your PR from using infolinks.

  11. Software Testing FAQ

    My adsense income for the month had been 240$ from adsense alone and the website is almost 6 months old. In order to earn a decent figure overall we need to do tremendous amount of hard work like harsh does for his website.

    Cheers dude,


  12. Michael Aulia

    Wow..much better than mine 🙂 I never get anything from my hosting referrals.. oh well basically affiliate marketing overall

  13. Rockstar Sid

  14. Ankit Agrawal

  15. Team Nirvana

  16. P.K.ARUN

    brother nice income… brother u have told that blogging service .. how ur getting paid ? who r paying for it ? and more thing what is digital point ? if it is a website give me the links let’s see…

    1. Honey Singh

      Digital point is a great place for freelancers you can easily earn by simple writing,blogging,programming,affiliates and service like designing etc.
      Note:I use it just for references and maximum i earned from DP was about 1 year ago when i was in the college ($1000 just jan 2008).But now a days its $0 because it really needs time.
      Few tricks to get the projects on the DP:
      1.Stay alive for new posts,as soon as some post it then you need to PM him/her
      2.You will be banned for bumping thread so stay conscious for whatever you are posting.
      3.If you don’t have any programming knowledge then you may easily earn from content writing sections.
      Besides freelancing DP is a great place for getting true reviews and help in different fields.Like if you have a problem with wordpress,problem in SEO,wants to know about adsense TOS,why kontera is spam bla bla… you can get the real assistance their.

      congrats for the increase in income and i hope next month will be even better than this.
      Guess what? (if take that offer you can have $10k) 😛

      1. Harsh Agrawal

        Thanks for the useful Input honey.
        I know that 10K deal was Amazing offer. Guess what Praval almost convinced me to go for it. Though I see more potential here. Still have lotsa thing to learn before I can think of it 🙂

  17. Harsh Agrawal

    Thanks Harshad. Still Have a long way to go. 🙂

    would you tell me what is affiliate marketing, blogging services, digital point services are?

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Affiliate Marketing– When you make a sale, you get a part of sale. Suppose I refer a person to buy a hosting , I will get a part of money referred person spent on the hosting.

      Blogging service – Content writing, WordPress Installation, WordPress SEO

      Digital point – One of the most active forum for webmaster and freelancers. You can grab lots of work opportunities from DP.
