First welcome! A short introduction if you are new to my blog. My name is Rodney and I suffered a stroke over two years ago. Doctors told me and my mom that I would never work again. Long story short, I discovered affiliate marketing and this blog.
This month was harder than I first imagined. I had all the right intention of knocking out all my goals. But I discovered a major problem with my Free 7-Day Affiliate Marketing E-course, it was long and boring…
I did what everyone would do when you don’t like something. I re-done the entire training over. It is more efficient and to the point this time. And my email swipes are on point!
There are 7 training videos, 13 emails in my sequence, a new sales funnel, tutorial videos, and many more. Trust me, it took me all month. Given my state, I am proud of myself. A Pat On The Back!
In fact if you accomplished something, give yourself a pat on the back! 👏

I was more excited about how much I made from my adsense than promoting an affiliate product that enjoyed.
Both were passive and as someone who once littered my website with ads in the beginning to detesting I would never touched an ad ever again.
I finally add the ads display back without being overly intrusive to the user experience. And I made two cents. I was happy because of the doubling penny effect. Do you know the story about the doubling penny? You can read more about it here.
Anyhow, my goal is to have my advertising double every month which means I have a healthy flow of traffic to this website.
I was handsomely rewarded twice in September 2019 of $200.91, one for $57.03 and the second one for $143.88.
I loved being rewarded with these amounts and I get an email from Vick like this as the subject line, CHICKY-BOOM! You got a sale!
It looked like my Clickfunnels customer quit his/her subscription this month so I no longer receive any payments from Clickfunnels. This made me a little sad but I understand that there will be other future customers.
The sales I got from The Four Percent hadn’t touched my bank account yet but it is held up like a saving account. It is good to document how much I made from affiliate marketing.
4 Percent – $200.91
Adsense – $0.02
I tried to keep my expenses as low as possible, that’s why I had prepaid almost everything with the annual subscription.
My subscribers count fluctuate each month so I elected to do a monthly plan. This month ended with 881 email subscribers. Convertkit charged me $29 this month. Last month, I had over a thousand users therefore I paid $49 but they went cold.
I scrubbed my cold subscribers every quarter and you can find that same process here. Basically, I delete cold subscribers from my list and get rid of them if they don’t engage with my emails.
I also bought some solo ads traffic from Jasdeep to test my Free 7-Day Affiliate Marketing E-course and Bonus Swipe files.
I bought two test run at 500 clicks each, the first set me back at $280 and the second run cost me $285. The total amount cost me $565.
I also bought traffic for $60 after watching this video and I got scam! Since the software didn’t work on a mac, the vendor promise me 10 million clicks. After the first 5,000 clicks I was taken as a fool when I knew it was too good to be true. My mistake!
I spent a grand total for traffic in the amount of $625.
Not my greatest month when it came to my net profit. Simply said, it really stinks!
I did make a profit in affiliate marketing which was totally passive and without any advertising.
I was happy knowing that I can do it. I made a profit of $200.93.
The part that I’m not happy about was how much I spend on traffic. I spent a total of $625 for traffic but it helped me to get new leads.
My net profit for the month of September was +$200.03 – $625 = -424.07
Goals for October 2019
I didn’t get to smash my goals for September 2019.
