I’m Rich, maker of Failory, a content site for entrepreneurs and startup founders. A long time ago, I turned Failory into an Open startup and started sharing my numbers, metrics, and strategies. Today, I published January’s monthly report.
January has been the best month in terms of revenue since I started the project 16 months ago, which is why I am so excited about this report.
I was able to make $763.16, receive 30,663 page views and sum 4,136 email subscribers. The funniest thing is that it was the month in which I worked the less amount of time! I took a two-week holiday and I didn’t even pick the computer during that time.
The reason why I made this money is that I believe I have finally found the perfect monetization strategy to monetize the site: sponsorship packages and affiliate links to startup-related tools. The money came from:
- $600 from Genm’s affiliate link
- $150 from 3 newsletters sponsorships of Tecla.io
- $13.16 from Amazon affiliates.
There isn’t any magic behind, but I was having lots of problem with monetization. What do you think about it?
