Welcome to my February Side Hustle Income Report!
February was a great month for me and I'm happy to share my results with you. I was able to increase my side hustle income a decent amount and have learned a lot over the past month.
Last month I spent tons of time working on my website (I hope you like it!) and kept doing some freelance writing and work on my side sites.
I was able to pump out lots of content last month, too. My daughter has been going to sleep earlier than usual so I've had a lot of time to write content late at night. I also have been able to connect with fellow personal finance bloggers to discuss strategies, guest posting, etc.
Anyway, let's get down to the details. Here is a quick summary of my past income reports:
Note: This income does not include my day job. This is only my side hustle income.
In February, I made:
I just barely hit my goal this month, but hey, it's still a W in my book! In February I made $230 more than January - not a huge increase, but not terrible. Here is how I made my money:
MPF Affiliates: $746
Other Sites: $491
As I have done previously, I will now go a little more in-depth.
In February, I made $746 in affiliate income from Millennial Personal Finance alone. This revenue is split between Amazon as well as some other offers I have throughout my site.
I'm still looking for more offers to monetize some pages or to create pages to try to monetize so if you have any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it!
With the more free time I had this month, I was able to increase my freelancing income slightly. I am still mostly just writing for other sites, but did help one client out with some marketing strategies which was really fun and interesting to do.
I now have 5 other sites that I am working on in my free time (aside from MPF). Though 2 of them took a hit because of Amazon's updated affiliate commissions, I am starting to rank better for keywords with all of them and that increase in traffic has helped me increase my income from last month. I am looking for other ways to monetize the 2 sites besides Amazon, but haven't had much luck yet.
Goals for February
- Make at least $1,800 from all side hustles combined
- Add 2 new affiliate offers
- Spend 3 hours a week researching content marketing
Goals for March
- Make $2,000 from all side hustles combined
- Guest post on at least 5 other blogs
- Find other ways to monetize sites other than Amazon (for MPF and other sites)
My goal for this month is to make at least $2,000 from all of my side hustles. I don't think this should be too difficult as long as I can find some other ways to monetize my sites. Also, as I gain more experience in writing content, I may start to up my prices some as I think they are currently pretty cheap.
As mentioned above, I also hope to guest post on some other sites, as well. This will help me get my name, as well as Millennial Personal Finance, out there and hopefully will help me develop some relationships with other bloggers - something that I think will go a long way in the success of this blog.
February was great month for me both personally and financially. March has been off to a great start so far and I'm excited to share my results of this month with you, too. Hopefully this time I can get it out before the next month is almost over (sorry, haha).
