My July 2017 Monthly Income Report

Welcome to my July 2017 Monthly Income Report. Thanks for checking it out! Each month, I write a detailed report about my online businesses, including what I’ve been up to, the lessons I’ve learned, and, of course, the money I’ve earned online. I’ve been publishing these reports since October 2008, so make sure you check out the income reports page if you’d like to go back in time and check out the complete history.

He’s been helping me for a while, but you likely didn’t know about him. His name is Non, and he’s awesome. He helped to lead the social media push on Will It Fly.  Because I was busy last week at the Traffic and Conversion Summit, he volunteered to write up this post, and I […]

Looking Ahead into 2016: What’s Coming Up

A lot has been happening behind the scenes here at SPI Headquarters, and I wanted to take a few minutes to share some of the exciting developments we have in store for you for next year. And when I say “in store for you,” I really mean for you. I’ll tell you what exactly that means in a second, but for now, let’s take a quick look back at 2015 and some important milestones that happened: The blog posts here on SPI became more consistent, which was a major goal for 2015. The SPI Podcast and AskPat continue to rock and roll, now combining for more than twenty-six million total downloads. My goal was to hit twenty-five million by the end of the year. The YouTube channel was reborn and SPI TV launched in February. We gained an extra twenty thousand YouTube Subscribers as a result—shy of my twenty-five thousand goal, but I’m still […]
