Our second income report of the year, and this month our Income was down. But before we jump into the income report, let me start by saying the purpose of this income report is not to brag about how much money we’re making. Trust me making money solely from Youtube in the travel niche is not a great way to make money. We got a really positive response from the income reports we posted previously so we will keep posting them.
Why Are We Writing Monthly Income Reports?
I feel like it’s important and we should tell you why I have chosen to start writing income reports.
We have basically been traveling for five years and my goal was to see the world and document the journey, so money was never a factor. Our Youtube channel has really taken off we never expected that, and I now get people every day asking me how we manage to make enough money to travel full-time.
My goal for 2023 is to start helping others to start making money online so they can start living their lives on their terms, I have even started a new channel on Youtube which is dedicated to documenting my journey of making passive income on autopilot. If you have ever wanted to make money online be sure to subscribe to the new channel here.
I am doing these income reports for these reasons:
- To keep me on track with my business goals
- To give you an insider look at this type of online business
- Hopefully, inspire someone that wants to make money online
Once our Youtube channel started to grow our goal was to be able to make enough money to cover the expenses of our travels, so we could continue to travel and produce more videos. I didn’t want my channel just to show me traveling and living the lifestyle, but I wanted to inspire others too along the way.
I realize that travel is not for everyone, so if you’re one of those people you can still get a lot out of reading these income reports. I want to inspire people to think about what they really want out of life and encourage them to go after it.
Based on the feedback from emails, Instagram, and Facebook messages I receive I know people are wanting to know how to make money online so they can live a lifestyle of time freedom too. Not just to travel but so they can pursue whatever they’re passionate about.
One of the other reasons I am starting the income reports again is to show people I’m not some rich guy with unlimited funds and prove to people they can do it too. We will be sharing how two average people can travel the world and grow an online business at the same time.
How Much Do YouTubers Make?
1. YouTube Ad Revenue – $1,289.64 (-$2510.36)
Our channel’s growth and ad revenue had been pretty stable for the last year until this last month. Our views have really dropped in January because we only posted one video for the month. We usually post 1-2 videos per week but have been trying to consistently post two videos per week for the last few months. Unfortunately, my mum is still in hospital so we can’t make any videos right now. We have only posted two videos this month so far which will hurt our earning potential over the next few months. We will start making some videos around Australia over the next few weeks to get things going again.
Youtube pays monthly usually around the 21st of each month. The first quarter of the year historically has the worst ad rates. In February our views dropped to around 500k down from 2.5 million.
Our best video for the month was from our series in Thailand called “Living In Thailand Koh Samui For $300 Per Month” It currently has over three million views.
When a video goes semi-viral like this it’s not just the ad revenue that is a bonus, but the number of new people it brings to our channel, who then go on to watch more videos and become new subscribers.
2. Facebook Page Ad Revenue – $808.49 (-$977.93)
Around five months ago we decided to start posting videos to our Facebook page, our page was already monetized but we weren’t really using it. We chop up 3-4 minute videos from our longer format videos on Youtube. The good thing is from each video we can get 2-3 different videos. It’s another good income stream for us and our page has gone from 11k followers to 144k in five months.
This month our income was down because a lot of the videos were getting demonetized because of people talking in a different language in the videos. Yes, that’s really weird and I’m hoping this problem will go away because it affected the revenue by half.
3. The Holistic Trainer Uncut – $1,255 (+55)
The holistic trainer uncut is our membership site where we post all the videos we don’t upload to Youtube. This gives our members a place to get more behind the scenes and see more videos from us. It was another solid month, and we will have some interesting content coming up as we are starting to travel again soon. If you would like to learn more about our Uncut videos you can visit the website here: The Holistic Trainer Uncut
4. Patreon – $200.85 (-$69.17)
It’s sometimes scary to put so much effort into building our Channel on Youtube as we don’t own the platform. We are at the mercy of the algorithm, and we don’t have much control over how many views they send our way.
This is why we’re really grateful for our patrons! Although we don’t have a lot of patrons supporting the channel we are so thankful to those who are helping. Thanks to their support, we can count on a consistent income every month no matter what Youtube does.
If you are not familiar with how Patreon works, it’s a platform that allows people to support their favorite creator’s work and helps them carry on creating. CLICK HERE to find out more about becoming a patron!
5. Manifest (Automated Done For You Trading) – $3,513.82 (+$312)
This is how we grow and compound our money. Manifest has a suite of trading software that allows you to have your money traded for you in the forex, crypto, and stock market. What I like best about Manifest is you can diversify with different software to lower risks.
Our goal with Manifest is to replace our income over the next few months and then invest that money into property. Our current trading account is at $68,127 which we have grown over the last 2 years from a small initial deposit. The software has been averaging 10-20% per month and we have been making around $5000+ each month.
Find out more about Manifest on how you can earn passive income with the same automated system we use or contact me directly for help on how to get started.
