I know, I know… I disappeared again for a few weeks! So sorry! But I’ve been working hard, that’s why!
And I went away for a few days too…
Want to see a picture? Took my mum, youngest son and nephew to the Swiss mountains for a few days; my sister joined us on day 3. The views were spectacular.
I mean, look at this…
The weather was mostly grey and overcast, but it was still incredibly beautiful!
My mum has Alzheimer’s, so it wasn’t exactly a holiday, but I won’t go into the sad details, it’s just too depressing.
Back to business and the news is good 🙂
Well, if I didn’t, I have now. These monthly results reviews are worth gold. To have a multiple 7 figure earner look at my strategy and results once a month – and give me feedback on all this – has made a HUGE difference to my progress.
Do you track your numbers? If you don’t, I highly recommend it! It’s an eye opener at times.
Anyway, as I was preparing to submit my numbers for July, I went into a bit of statistical deep dive. If I spread out my numbers over the last 18 months, I’ve been making an average of just over 1k a month. If I look at the last 12 months, I’m averaging nearly 1.5k a month. That’s in profit, of course.
As I write this, I’m attacked by self-doubt and imposter syndrome. I see all the MASSIVE income promises I get in my inbox weekly, and I think “I’m only making 4 figures a month…”
And then you know what? I stop myself! I refuse to go down that rabbit hole.
I make what I make, and I’m so incredibly proud of myself.
I have such little time… I don’t have my own office. There are constant interruptions. My kids don’t go to school – I’m responsible for their education. Until April this year, I looked after my dear Dad. It was full on. And then there was the horror of seeing him go downhill, suffer terribly and finally pass away. And now there’s the grief. I don’t talk about it much, but it’s there, all the time.
So yes, I’m proud of these 4 figures I make each month. Immensely proud.
In other news, I spoke with a great marketer and copywriter called Bill Mueller. He reviewed my emails and had only great things to say about them, that made me blush big time.
I told him I really wanted to improve on my emails and how they convert… he asked me about my numbers and when I showed him my stats from my ads and my ROI, he said “how much better than that can it get?”. This made me laugh and I thought he had a point! It made me realise how much I underestimate how well I’m doing. After all, three to four hundred percent ROI is not bad, right?
So my August aim now is to scale my ads and get that email list of mine bigger – much bigger!
I won’t do anything crazy – I do believe slow and steady wins the race. But I’m gradually increasing my ad budget and testing new audiences.
Unless Dean tells me not to, of course. I always follow his advice above all else – and it serves me well.
Anyway, that’s the news for this week.
Well, almost! YouTube still being my first love, I continue to publish on there, of course. You might want to check out my latest video: 5 tips to unlock your affiliate marketing success 👇
