Monthly Income Report - May 2018

Monthly Income Report - May 2018

Every month, I publish a report of the business & investment income I received during the previous month. I publish these reports to show you what you can expect with an online business & unconventional investments, and I also publish them to keep the motivation to work hard & to grow this number month after month.

In every report, you will find out the details about all the business income I received during the month, all the business expenses, and also all the income I received from investments during the month.

I mainly worked on two new things during this month of May. The first one was to work on my first ever masterclass about investing for passive income. I ran the class live for some people already as a test, and I plan to release the masterclass (for free) in June so everyone can enjoy it.

The other thing was to integrate split testing in SiteEngine, the software that I use to run all my websites. This was something I wanted to do for a long time, as some of my niche websites now have some pages that get a lot of traffic, but some not so much conversions. Therefore, I wanted to have a built-in tool to allow me to test some variants of given page and then select the one that converts the most. This is now done, and I already used it to double the conversion rates (from visits to clicks on affiliate links) on some of my most visited page. I also plan to release an article about that during the next month, when I will have more data.

In May, I also spent some time travelling London where I met some of you over coffee. That was actually so cool to meet face-to-face to speak about building & buying online assets, and I definitely want to repeat that in the future.

On the investing side, I mainly reinvested my gains into real estate crowdfunding deals on Housers (especially in Portugal), and also on the Peer-to-Peer lending platform Mintos.

Quite a stable month compared to April - as I am still setting up many things inside SiteEngine, and making sure that every one of my websites & SaaS apps are running smoothly. I will now spend the reminding months of the year scaling up what I already have to get to my goals for the year, by using split testing to raise the conversions of the assets that I already have, and also using advertising to inject more traffic to those pages & funnels.

Any changes on your portfolio of dividend paying stocks? Any strategies - buying or selling - bye these days?

Indeed, well spotted :) But as it's an ongoing thing, I plan to talk about more into my next income report. Basically it's mostly selling positions where I did a great capital gain & where the dividend growth has slowed down significantly.

Thanks for your sharing the insights in your business and what you're currently working on. I'm curious to see what's next for AREST.io and I'm looking forward to July 2018 Report. Regards
