May 2016 Income & Traffic Report

Monthly Income Report | May | Hayle Olson | www.hayleolson.com

May has brought some exciting new times to my life. For one, I graduated from college with my degree in electrical engineering! And secondly, I moved to Idaho! Moving has set me a bit back this past week. So hopefully in the next coming weeks you’ll be seeing more posts. I’ve also earned some money through freelance graphic design which you’ll see added to this months income & traffic report!


INCOME: 

May Income:

Social Fabric – $525.00
Freelance Graphic Design – $65.00
Total: $590.00 

May Expenses:

Google Ads – $2.40
Pinterest Promoted Pin – $6.00
Creative Market – $67.00
Product Purchases – $32.41
Total: $107.81

Total Profit: $482.19

Notes:

I opened an Etsy shop this month and really dove into some Freelance Graphic Design projects. Because of this I invested in some fonts and mockups from Creative Market. I also played around with Google Ads and promoted a few pins on Pinterest, I don’t think I’ll be doing this again simply because I didn’t see huge results. I hope to continue doing well with Social Fabric, and I’ve also started getting other sponsored posts through different networks!


Traffic:

MAY

Around the middle of May one of my sponsored posts was chosen for Facebook Syndication. That means the company liked my post so much that they wanted to promote it on Facebook! This brought in quite a few extra views and it was really exciting. It definitely made me proud of what I created! Here’s the Post. πŸ˜‰ I am happy to say that my overall pageviews did increase by about 5,000 views! Hopefully, I’ll be seeing a slight increase like this every month!
