Income Report October 2018

Income Report October 2018

Last Update: February 8th 2019 / by Marco Schwartz

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.

A lot happened in October actually, starting with me attending the MicroConf Europe conference for the first time! I really wanted to go since I now have two software businesses (aREST & SiteEngine), and the really cool thing is that this year it was in the lovely city of Dubrovnik (Game of Thrones fan here :) ):

I had a blast meeting other software entrepreneurs, and talking about how to market & grow software products. I met a lot of great people there - and will definitely come back at the next editions of this conference.

It was also actually my first time speaking on stage at a conference of this size! Indeed, they sent a call for attendee talks a month before the conference, I applied, and my talk was selected along with three other attendee talks! Here is a picture of me speaking at MicroConf:

I have to say it was really a great experience to speak at such a conference and I am definitely looking forward to doing that again! I spoke about how I created my two current SaaS applications, by leveraging my existing audiences in the creation & growth process.

After coming back from MicroConf, I was more motivated than ever to work on my SaaS applications, especially on SiteEngine. Therefore, I spent most of the month working on the onboarding of SiteEngine, and building sales funnel for the application. It's still a work in progress, but I really believe the app can change the life of many online entrepreneurs and avoid a lot of headaches, so I'll continue investing a lot of efforts in this project for the coming months.

I also launched a brand new course about how to create online passive income with affiliate marketing, which is now actually a big part of my monthly income. The course is called Affiliate Marketing Mastery, and I am currently in the process of recording all the lessons of the course with a small group of students before the course is officially available for everyone to join in at the end of November. I really can't wait to release this course, as affiliate marketing has been a big role in my journey as an entrepreneur, but also I see so many people do it the wrong way that I really wanted to put this course out there. If you are still interested to join when reading this, simply send me an email!

As for investing, I decided to move everything investing related to a separate monthly portfolio update, that will leave me much more space for that. I will still include the income from my investments in this report, but the other report will have much more details about the current status of my portfolio.

Now let's move to the income report itself:

This month was very good overall, again going towards the 10.000 Euros mark. This was mostly thanks to the great performances of affiliate marketing on this site, which I will definitely focus on growing during the coming months especially as I know it is something that really benefits my readers. For the sales of digital products for my other sites, I am still working on the lead generation part of my sales funnels, which explain the lower sales coming from those websites during the past months.

That's already the end of this report - as I mentioned earlier, I'll post a separate report in the coming days with all the details about the current state of my investment portfolio. I hope you enjoyed reading this report, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to leave them below!
