December Round Up – Where did the time go!

Following on from Novembers achievements I wanted to continue to improve the ROI on my campaigns.

If I can earn more by spending less then that makes my business easier to scale in the long term.

I set myself a target of making $2500 with a budget of $750. I wanted to test some cashflow ideas I had that I’ll be adding to an article Im preparing for later this month.

Basically I wanted to generate an income without having to spend money until I had it in the bank.

Stay tuned to find out more!

INCOME

So how did it go?

Well, I generated $2628 from $773 which is a 240% ROI over the month .. much better than last months 92% ROI

Which is not bad considering I only ran ads for 15 days last month.

In the graphic below you can see the ROI’s for the first week of December, I was on a long weekends vacation for the first few days so couldn’t tweak anything, but as soon as I could things improved.

Yes, that really is a 422% ROI/$261 Income on a $50 spend.

The columns are: Ad spend, Income, profit, ROI

I did run into an issue as this article has been running since October and had pretty much run it’s course so towards middle of the month. I stopped running ads to it on December 16th.

Overall it’s generated me around $5500 directly with a trickle down income of over $1000 (trickle down is the income generated by other articles on the site from the traffic to the main article)

Not bad for a $10 article.

I prepared some new articles in a different niche and started driving traffic to one from December 26th.

The ROI was just over 140% which was amazing as i’ll explain in a moment.

There are some niches where i’ve really struggled to make money, this was one of them.

I’ve dabbled in ads before but couldn’t get below $0.50. Just before christmas I saw a product being promoted called Optimize Hero.

I bought it and did a small test campaign which i documented for the members Of Serious Marketers Only.

The initial campaign was costing me up to 63c per click. Thats not sustainable and I would make a loss pretty quickly.

So I ran it through OP Hero and analysed the results and made the suggested tweaks, within 24 hours I was paying 12c per click and I had my demographics nailed.

I then ran joint Yahoo and Facebook campaigns to compare the results Yahoo won by a slight margin but not enough to make me drop the Facebook ads.

I am going to be revisiting some old unsuccessful Facebook campaigns this month and using them with OP hero.. it’s 5 star highly recommended software, and a game changer you can read about it at: Optimize Hero

Lifestyle

It was a big (and therefore Expensive ) month lifestyle wise this month.

On December 1st we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary by staying on a super yacht ion Gibraltar. Once again I proved that I could take time off and my business can run smoothly.

Here is a picture of us on the yacht after our Anniversary dinner with my friend Andre Chaperon and his wife Anita

The rest of the month consisted of a couple of annual charity golf days and me doing my yearly job as pretending to be Santa at a couple of local Xmas fairs.

Plus a few more rounds of Golf because it was warm and I could 😉

We also got a new dog, after our last Boxer died we decided not to to replace her.. probably a bad decision since dogs make me happy!

So the opportunity came up to adopt another one so we did.. good decision!
