This is our very first income report we are writing. 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.
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 two 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.
I am doing these income reports for these reasons:
- To keep me on track with my business goals
- To give you an insiders look at this type of online business
- To 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 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.
1. YouTube Ad Revenue – $4,945.77
Our channel’s growth and ad revenue had been pretty stable for the last year, we usually post 1-2 videos per week but have been trying to consistently post two videos per week for the last few months.
Youtube pays monthly usually around the 21st of the Month so the Ad revenue you see comes from December 15 to January 15. The last quarter of the year historically has the best ad rates.
Our best video for the month was from our series in Bali called “This Is Heaven – SIDEMEN BALI (LUXURIOUS BALI HOTEL)” It currently has over three hundred thousand 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 onto watch more videos and become new subscribers.
2. Patreon & PayPal – $152.46
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 your 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.
3. The Holistic Trainer Uncut – $482.04
The holistic trainer uncut is our membership site that 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. If you would like to learn more about our Uncut videos you can visit the website here: The Holistic Trainer Uncut
4. Affiliate Income – $20.31 (Minus Legendary Marketer Earnings)
The majority of our affiliate income comes from promoting Legendary Marketer which at this point I’m finding out if it’s against the terms and conditions to disclose earnings.
Legendary Marketer helps people start a profitable online business and is perfect for anyone who wants to start an online business but doesn’t know where to begin. They have a 15-day online business builder challenge that I recommend you do if you’re serious about starting an online business. If you would like to know more about the challenge, make sure to check out the 15-day online business builder challenge.
Lastly, Amazon and Agoda although we haven’t really been promoting our Amazon affiliate links so we don’t make much money from this. The majority of our Amazon affiliate income comes from people visiting the following pages where we recommend the gear we use:
5. Network Marketing Income
Unfortunately, we cannot disclose our income from the network marketing company we are with as it’s looked at as an income claim. Find out more here Residual Income Solution
