While March 2016 wasn’t as good as February, I’m not complaining.
Please note this income report pertains solely to 2 niche sites of mine. One site is a large B2C website serving a broad audience. The other site is a focused B2B niche site (not Fat Stacks). This income report does NOT include net income/revenue from Fat Stacks (which continues to grow due to the popularity of my authority website course (now called Niche Tycoon)
This income report also does not include my local offline marketing clients or any other niche sites (I’ve expanded my niche site portfolio in recent months).
Here are the numbers.
March 2016 Income Report:
Niche Site #1 (Large B2C Magazine Style Website):
Display Ad Revenue: $29,156 (Media.net revenue alone was $10,685 and Ezoic revenue was $8,131 plus there’s AdSense and other ad neworks).
Affiliate Commission Revenue: $3,515
Total revenue for site 1: $32,671
I explain how I generate this revenue from these types of sites (B2C) in my guide here.
Niche Site #2 (Targeted Niche Site):
Affiliate commission revenue: $9,976 (this is total affiliate revenue for site #2).
I have a screenshot of the quarterly affiliate check below. For income reports I just divide the most recent quarterly checks by 3 and then I earn a few hundred dollars from some other affiliate programs.

It seem your Affiliate page isn’t available again at http://fatstacksgo.com/niche-tycoon
Please make time to take a look at it, and probably fix it.
Thanks Harrison. You can be an affiliate at https://www.jvzoo.com/affiliates/info/129823. Thanks for asking.
One thing I have noticed with all of your income report is this.. “You spend money to get money”.. Your traffic source= paid and in turn generate more clicks on ur site..
Nice, I see u re really using the business method on your blogs. Keep it up
Yeah, I invest in my sites big time. Some more than others.
Regarding Amazon Associates and living outside the US – How do you deal with this during tax time? I mean Amazon Associates in the US does not require you to pay taxes, so when tax time roles around you have no T4 of sorts to report. Does one simply treat this income as non-existent? IS there a penalty for doing so?
I just hand it all over to my accountant. I run everything through a company. I’m not sure how they deal with it.
Wooww…That’s Really inspiring earning, Jon.
Thanks. Yeah, April was pretty good given the Nessie Arrow fiasco (which is ongoing). I have no complaints.
