8,100 revenue streams and counting

Too typically prior to now, I used to be a swing-for-the-fences kind of man.

I did issues running a blog anticipating a house run. If there wasn’t a monster pay-off potential, I didn’t trouble.

That’s a nasty method.


Luckily, I shifted gears a number of years in the past and began creating lots of, then 1000’s of mini-revenue streams.

At first, it appeared futile. Revenue was low and on a day-to-day foundation, it appeared prefer it wasn’t rising.

It might be risky too. One month can be good. The subsequent not so good.

Many months later, month-to-month revenue was far increased. Whereas nonetheless risky, the typical was a lot increased. Over time and as I saved on publishing, the mini-streams grew in quantity and whole revenue elevated properly.

That’s once I realized the ability of getting many mini-revenue streams.

I’m speaking about every article I publish being a tiny revenue stream. Some articles make $.10 monthly. Some (only a few) make $500+ monthly. Most make effectively below $25 monthly.

Appears like peanuts and hardly definitely worth the effort till you think about I’ve 1000’s of printed posts, many incomes one thing.


It’s the identical with Fats Stacks.

Fats Stacks earns largely from course gross sales and internet affiliate marketing. Advertisements make up the third stream.

I don’t earn a monster quantity from any supply aside from once I run course gross sales which is each few months.

I earn a bit bit from lots of the affiliate hyperlinks I place all over and in e mail newsletters. Every little bit from many affiliate hyperlinks provides up. Many months I’m shocked with how a lot it tallies as much as.

It slowly grows as I add extra content material with extra affiliate hyperlinks.

It’s the identical with promoting advertisements on this e mail e-newsletter. One advert doesn’t do a complete lot however promoting 12 advertisements in a month provides up.

Talking of promoting my programs. That too began small and grew.

I began with one small course. Then one other. A number of extra. Then a bundle.

Now I’ve associates who promote. Some promote usually and some run sale promotions often all year long.

All of the revenue sources add up.

Over the previous 30 days I’ve earned $3,346 from Amazon.


That’s the results of actually 1000’s of affiliate hyperlinks (most through embedded Amazon photos utilizing AMZ Picture plugin).

And sure, I acknowledge my Amazon affiliate revenue is pitiful given I had over 37,000 affiliate hyperlink clicks. That involves $.08 per click on. Most web site advertisements pay greater than that.

Why do I trouble with Amazon if I’m getting solely $.08 per click on?

As a result of I take advantage of the product photos from Amazon to boost the content material. Amazon has a number of nice photos you need to use that assist illustrate posts. Actually, that is my major purpose for embedding the pictures.

Most of my content material is informational as an alternative of purchaser intent. These embedded Amazon product photos get loads of clicks however as you possibly can see only a few conversions.

And but, all these hyperlinks and clicks, as pitiful per click on as it’s, tallies as much as over $3,300 monthly. IMO, that’s a really first rate revenue stream.

Particular person revenue sources can develop over time too

Whereas all my revenue is an combination of many small streams, many particular person streams’ revenue develop over time as effectively.

An article may earn $1.50 within the first six months however by month 19 is flattening $55 monthly.

When my websites had been small I didn’t have any posts pulling in $500 monthly from advertisements. Now I do.

These posts’ site visitors proceed to develop through the years leading to rising revenue.

Do your self a favor…

Contemplate the various mini-revenue stream mannequin.

Is a single monster revenue stream doable?

Sure, after all, it’s. It’s completely doable.

You possibly can rank for a high-value key phrase and pull in tens of 1000’s monthly selling one product.

It’s doable.

It’s truly a viable enterprise mannequin.

Regardless of my so typically pursuing the house run revenue stream my enterprise didn’t develop like that.

My level is to not dissuade you from making an attempt to create a mega revenue stream.

As a substitute, it’s to level out that constructing lots of or 1000’s of mini-revenue streams can work very effectively.

Oh yeah… if all these tiny revenue streams are on one web site you’ll hit your own home run once you promote. Always remember in regards to the huge repay once you exit.

Promoting websites is our dwelling run second.

Talking of promoting websites, I just lately printed a full write-up on my expertise promoting 7 websites with Movement Make investments. You possibly can learn that write-up right here.

P.S. Now it’s 8,101 revenue streams with this e mail (that may quickly be a weblog submit). FYI, I didn’t rely each article printed. It’s round 8,100.

Jon runs the place round right here.  He pontificates about launching and rising on-line publishing companies, aka blogs that make a couple of dollars.  His pleasure and pleasure is the e-mail e-newsletter he publishes.

Hyperbole?  Possibly, however go test it out to see what some readers say.

In all seriousness, Jon is the founder and proprietor of a digital media firm that publishes a wide range of net properties visited and beloved by thousands and thousands of readers month-to-month. Fatstacks is the place he shares a glimpse into his digital publishing enterprise.
