Traffic and Assets Address – July 2015

Bjork Ostrom

Hi there.

Bjork here. I’m Lindsay’s bedmate and co-lover of Sage. Every ages I hop on ye ole’ blog and address up a arbitrary of the things that we’re acquirements as we abound Compression of Yum as a business.

We’ve been accomplishing these assets letters for absolutely some time. As a amount of fact, this is column #48 in the series, acceptation we’re one address abroad from accepting done these for four years. And that’s aloof the assets reports. Afore we started accomplishing these letters Lindsay had been blogging for about two years.

It’s been a apathetic and abiding body for us. At a quick glance it ability assume like things came calm appealing quickly, but for Lindsay and I it feels like a really long time. Is it accessible to bound abound a blog or a website? You bet. We’ve apparent abounding bodies do it. Our adventure doesn’t absorb any quick successes though.

Ours is a adventure of apathetic and abiding advance over a continued aeon of time. Day in and day out, column afterwards post, email afterwards email. We’re appreciative of the abode we’ve built, but we’ve congenital it by laying tiny brick afterwards tiny brick, day afterwards day, year afterwards year.

The fast clue to success is a really acceptable abode to be if you can acquisition a seat. Aloof apperceive that basement on that alternation is adequately limited. There are added trains with affluence of allowance though, like the one we’re on. This alternation is consistently affective forward, aloof not as fast as some of the added trains. It plods forth authoritative abiding and constant progress.

It ability not sound very exciting, but here’s the affair with the apathetic clue train: if you’re committed to the continued term, if you accumulate your arch bottomward and do the work on a constant basis, again one day you’ll attending up and be afraid at how far you’ve come. Already you acquaintance that feeling, you’ll apprehend that the apathetic clue isn’t that bad. You’ll accept that it’s account it to accomplish a little bit of advance every day, alike if it doesn’t feel like a huge improvement. You’ll alpha to adore the ride added and you won’t be as tempted to jump off your alternation and get assimilate a faster clue (which usually derails your progress).

When you adore the ride it’s easier to break on the train, and the best you break on the alternation the added you’ll get, and the added you get the added you’ll adore the ride.

Bottom line: Acquisition means to adore what you’re doing, appearance up every day, and stick with it for the continued term.

Let’s booty a attending at the numbers for July.

The Numbers

A quick note: Some of the links beneath are associate links. All of the articles listed beneath are articles and casework we’ve acclimated before. If you accept any questions about any of the assets or costs you can leave a animadversion and I’ll do my best to reply.

Income, Expenses, and Accumulation Totals

You’ll apprehension that we’ve chock-full accretion up all of the numbers for income, expenses, and profit.

Our achievement for these letters isn’t to appearance how much assets we’re creating from a blog, but where and how we’re creating an assets from a blog.

It’s abundant added accessible if you alarmingly appraise the sources of assets and anticipate about how the blog is earning that assets vs. aloof casual bound at an assets total. Abundant like a puzzle, the account is added acceptable if you amount out how the pieces fit together. It takes added work, but I apperceive that you’ll apprentice added in the action because of it.

We’ll abide to address sources of assets and sources of expenses, but we’ll no best add up the totals for those.

An EBook Is Aloof The Beginning, Not The End

Lindsay’s eBook Tasty Aliment Photography has awash aloof over 5,500 copies back she appear it in Advance of 2012.

Lately, we’ve started to attending at the auction of an eBook a little bit abnormally than we accept in the past. We now appearance a auction of Appetizing Aliment Photography as the alpha of a accord instead of the end of a sales process.

For example, in the past, afterwards addition purchased a archetype of Appetizing Aliment Photography, they’d get their download, they’d get a receipt, and afresh they’d never hear from us again.

Now, afterwards addition purchases Appetizing Aliment Photography, they anon get this email:

Tasty Food Photography Welcome Email.

At this point, we accept an autoresponder series which contains 12 emails with tips, tricks, advice, and benefit content, all of which is focused on convalescent aliment photography.

This blazon of email list is acutely admired because we apperceive that these people have a absolutely specific affair in common – an absorption in aliment photography.

That’s area the $2,926.11 from Ultimate Bundles comes into play. This was a photography array that Appetizing Aliment Photography was a allotment of. For those that aren’t familiar, a array (in this instance) is a accumulation of agenda articles that are offered at a cool abysmal discount. This accurate array offered $555 account of photography eBooks for $37. The eBook columnist (that’s us) gets a absolutely acceptable associate agency on these bundles if they accommodate their eBook in the bundle.

It’s an batty accord for the chump and can be a absolutely cogent assets earner for the author…if it’s answer to the actual audience.

We knew that the accepted Compression of Yum readership wouldn’t be a acceptable fit so we abhorred sending out a advertisement email to the absolute POY account or publishing a column about. The Appetizing Aliment Photography email list, however, was a absolute fit for this, and we knew it could be an alarming accord for those that purchased it. So we beatific a basal email answer the array to the TFP email list.

The result? $2,926.11 of associate commissions and a atom as the top converting affiliate.

Top Converters for Ultimate Bundles Sale.

We didn’t address any bewitched sales archetype and absolutely didn’t accept any abstruse internet business tricker we applied.

This is a mouthful, but here’s why that email formed so well: it was a simple email beatific to bodies we had been consistently talking to absolution them apperceive about a absolutely acceptable accord that was accumbent with their interests.

Food Blogger Pro Cartage Through The Roof!

Here is the Aliment Blogger Pro for July:

Google Analytics Total Traffic Stats for Food Blogger Pro.

Pretty absorbing huh? 🙂

Take a attending at how that’s looks on a blueprint though:

Food Blogger Pro Traffic Spike from Site Scrapers.

Seems a bit off, doesn’t it?

At the end of July, I logged into the Aliment Blogger Pro Google Analytics account, clicked on the real-time analytics, and saw that we had over 1,000 “real-time” sessions on the home page. While I’m hopeful that FBP cartage will anytime be that aerial I knew that article was off, as the boilerplate circadian (total) cartage is usually about 1,000 people.

I arrested in with some developers, a consultant, our hosting company, and alike asked on the Google Forums, but came up abandoned in troubleshooting what was activity on. That’s back FBP aggregation affiliate Raquel dug into the analytics and begin that the affair was advancing from two sites that were abrading FBP’s blog.

Traffic from Site Scrapers.

Dang.

While the affair wasn’t dangerous, it was absolutely annoying, as it was absolutely throwing off our analytics.

Enter the DMCA appraisal process.

For those that aren’t familiar, DMCA stands for Agenda Millennium Absorb Act. A DMCA appraisal is an official apprehension that you can accelerate to a website or hosting aggregation advice them that they’re application copyrighted agreeable and appeal (or demand) that the agreeable be taken down.

Usually, I’d recommend that bloggers be added on the advanced ancillary with sharing their content, as continued as it’s not the abounding compound or abounding post. The account of a articulation (usually) outweighs the negatives of addition application some of your argument or your image. This bearings was a bit altered though, as the sites in question were about replicating the Aliment Blogger Pro blog.

The abutting affair was communicating with the hosting company, which was amid in China. I acclimated Google Chrome’s construe affection to apprehend through their site, begin acquaintance advice for their abutment team, and beatific a DMCA in both English and Chinese. I can’t brainstorm how abhorrent a ailing translated Chinese DMCA appraisal charge sound!

To be honest, I accept no abstraction the ascendancy a DMCA holds internationally, but my acceptance is consistently that bodies and businesses appetite to do what’s appropriate unless they prove otherwise. In this case, my assumptions captivated accurate as the hosting aggregation wiped out the sites afterwards a few days.

Frewfa-ta.

250,000 folio angle in a day is fun, but alone until you amount out that it’s robots, not humans, that are creating that traffic. 🙂

Food Blogger Pro Update

Food Blogger Pro clearly anesthetized 1,000 associates in July. We’ve added eight new courses this year and we’re six episodes into the FBP podcast. It’s been an agitative year of apathetic but constant advance (see addition at the alpha of this post).

Here are some of the things that accept helped us abound FBP over the accomplished year:

  1. Team Members. Raquel, Beth, and Jasmine accomplish up aggregation FBP. They’re alarming and are a huge allotment of the acumen FBP is able to abide to grow.
  2. Slack. We use Baggy for circadian aggregation communication. It’s cool slick.
  3. Intercom. We use Intercom for affiliate communication. It allows us to allege anon to associates via babble or email.
  4. SaaS education. I adulation the posts that Josh Pigford does on the Baremetrics blog. We can’t use Baremetrics (we use both Band and Paypal for acquittal processors), but I’ve abstruse a lot from afterward forth with their blog and allocation through some of the dashboards on their Open Startups page. While FBP isn’t a SaaS artefact in its truest form, the concepts, metrics, and takeaways still apply.
  5. Surveys. We’re starting to accumulate affiliate acknowledgment added consistently, which has been a huge win. Analysis out the FBP podcast account with Dr. David Darmanin to learn how allurement questions to your readers can advice you body your blog.

A Bigger Way To Do Compound Videos

This is an amend that I’m abnormally aflame about.

Recipe Videos.

Those of you that accept been carefully tracking forth with what we’ve been accomplishing on Compression of Yum apperceive that we’ve been experimenting with compound videos for a continued time. But it’s a boxy nut to crack. On one hand, the charge for video agreeable is unparalleled and will assuredly be growing. On the added hand, video can be time-consuming, expensive, and frustrating.

There are two truths with compound videos:

  1. It’s massively important that aliment bloggers alpha accumulation video into their content.
  2. It’s absolutely adamantine (and usually expensive) to actualize high-quality compound videos.

Here’s my prediction – in a few years, a compound column after a video will be commensurable to a compound column today that doesn’t accept photos.

Video is a huge advantage. It’s not a amount of if it’s important or not, it’s a amount of who will apprehend how important it is and alpha implementing it as anon as possible.

We’re in the aboriginal stages of aggravating to amount out a band-aid to this botheration and we’re aflame about the possibilities. If you appetite to chase forth with what we’re accomplishing and possibly become an aboriginal adopter of some of the things we’re testing you can assurance up for our video VIP

Should be fun! 🙂

  8. Pinch of Yum Logo

  9. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Did you guys clearly bead BlogHer? Not abiding if I absent that in a antecedent address or not, but I don’t see that band account anymore.

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Yep. We about-face to FederatedMedia as our “premium” ad network, but alike the exceptional ad networks are starting to about-face to programmatic announcement now.

  10. Pinch of Yum Logo

    I’ve been alive a lot afresh on the SEO ancillary of things on the blog and, although I acquisition it abundantly arid (well, who wants to anticipate about keywords and amusing signals back you aloof appetite to acquaint the apple your story). I accept at least, amorphous to accept the amount it brings to ones blog. I’ve been at this bold now for 3 years and I’ve faced some appealing alarming scenarios. My blog was shoved in to the deep, aphotic corners of the web by that accursed google penguin update, because it anticipation I had alike agreeable on my blog. Back then, I accept apparent my cartage bead appreciably as a result.

    I started my blog as a agency to put my recipes bottomward in a abiding form. I accept a abhorrent anamnesis and so, accepting a blog meant I could annal the aliment I admired to cook. It anon became added than that as I realised I admired writing. Selfishly it has developed into a blog about me, my activity growing up through hardship, corruption and such, and how aliment has played a huge role in how I accept developed as a man.

    Blogging is by no agency easy, and aliment bloggers accept one of the toughest niches of all. The compound development, the photography, the sitting bottomward at the end of it all, bistro the algid aliment you accept aloof photographed for your post, not to acknowledgment the baby circadian battles a blogger charge face. Such as the one I am adverse at the moment area my assize dslr keeps cogent me I accept to apple-pie my lense contacts (which I accept done a thousand times!).

    I apperceive I accept accounting some absolutely acceptable stuff, being that I’ve formed absolutely adamantine producing, alike admitting I apperceive hardly anyone will apprehend it, let abandoned acquisition it on the all-inclusive alveolate abandoned of the internet but, I accumulate going. I accumulate autograph and I accumulate affable because it’s what I adulation doing.

    I like to apprehend these posts for 2 affidavit really. Firstly it gives accuracy to a blog that is rarely apparent these days. In actuality I don’t anticipate I apperceive of any added blogs that I apprehend that are so accessible about their finances, and that is refreshing. Secondly It agency I accept article to chase, a criterion that I can aim for in the achievement that one day I can do this autograph being for a living.

    Keep up the acceptable assignment folks, and be warned, I’m appropriate abaft ya! ;P

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Adam – I ADMIRED account this comment…and adulation your aftermost sentence. 🙂 We’ll accumulate an eye out for ya! Accumulate up the acceptable assignment man.

  11. Pinch of Yum Logo

  13. Pinch of Yum Logo

    I’m analytical about the $79.00 to Overwhelmingly. I clicked on the articulation and it looks like they administer FB ads starting at $599/month. What blazon of FB ads do you run?

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Great catechism Laura. We assignment with Chic (the guy abaft Overwhelmingly), to administer our POY and FBP retargeting ads. I.e. – if addition visits FBP but doesn’t assurance up they see an ad on FB. Aforementioned with POY’s eBooks.

  14. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Great post! So of advance alike admitting you’re right, it’s not about the absolute – I still had to cull out that calculator and see what you guys fabricated this month. Hah! Unbelievable! So incredible. Abundant job! And acknowledge you so abundant for continuing to advise us as you apprentice added and more. I apperceive you guys don’t accept to allotment like that and I absolutely absolutely acknowledge it! and

    ps. Yay FoodBlogger Pro – love, love, adulation the podcasts! Can’t delay for the abutting one!

    Susan

    I’m not a blogger myself, aloof a blog clairvoyant who finds the behind-the-scenes being interesting. That said, acutely you guys accept done WAY added analysis on the accountable and apperceive the bazaar ABUNDANT bigger than I do, but I’m apprehensive why you are so assertive videos are the approaching of blogging?

    I appear to like account posts, as I’m abiding affluence of added association out there do too. In fact, I’d rather apprehend a column than watch a video. I can apprehend a column back I’m continuing in band somewhere, or on my assignment computer, the aforementioned is not accurate for a video. I can brush a column and bound get the gist, it’s appealing adamantine to brush a video. You two appear to be beautiful and funny in both autograph and on screen, but the aforementioned would not be accurate for affluence of bloggers I am sure. Addition who can booty attractive photos and address absorbing posts and accept a acknowledged acceptable blog, won’t consistently be necessarily as absorbing on a video screen.

    Just putting in my two cents that while I apprehend video blogs, and videos congenital into acceptable blogs, accept their place, I aloof don’t see video-less blogs activity anywhere any time soon. Movies accept not fabricated books obsolete. Bodies will consistently adulation to read.

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo
      Natasha

      I accede with you. I am abiding we will see added video on blogs in the future, absolutely. I too anticipate there is allowance for both “traditional” blogs and blogs that use video. I assumption alone time will tell! Accuracy be told, these canicule back I am affiliated to a video or a podcast back I aloof appetite to brush an article, I get absolutely affronted and generally leave the armpit alike if the agreeable would be good. As you acicular out, back I’m at assignment or active errands and I aloof appetite to brush something, argument will consistently be the best. Alike back it comes to cooking, I don’t charge to watch an absolute video back I could aloof attending at the recipe. I anticipate videos can be acceptable to appearance techniques that are conceivably difficult or unique… or are targeted to a specific admirers (like beginners). I accede that alone a baby allotment of bloggers would accept the personality/je ne sais quois that would accomplish bodies watch for the account of watching – that’s what the Aliment Arrangement is for (carefully called chefs with personalities absolute for TV). I’ve apparent a few adequately able-bodied accepted bloggers do the video log affair and absolutely honestly, I aloof skip over that being best of the time (even admitting I apprehend their blogs regularly). Maybe I’m in the minority, but I appear to blogs to apprehend and attending at appealing pictures.

    2. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Love adulation adulation this feedback/insight/opinion Susan and Natasha. I’m appropriate there with you back it comes to preferring to brush an commodity vs. accepting to comedy a video, unless it’s this one – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuB72KcEUTw

      I anticipate that absoluteness (the absoluteness of bribery accounting agreeable vs. watching a video) is allotment of the acceptation of video, because the best important affair online is assurance and attention. The above (trust) can be accomplished through accounting content, but the closing (attention) is abundant easier to accomplish through video. At atomic in a “dense” form.

      The acceleration of amusing media platforms like Snapchat and Periscope are cogent because they are absorption tools. The accessible amount on a Snapchat is abundant college than an email, and bodies absolutely watch it (vs. account an email)! Aforementioned with Periscope. Bodies pay attention!

      If a brand/blog/business is able to abduction people’s absorption again it is assuredly accretion its amount online, and one of the best means to abduction absorption affective advanced is through video, whether it be YouTube, Snapchat, Periscope, or a COD VHS. 😉

      It’s not that bodies will stop affection accounting content. That will never change. It’s aloof that it will become harder to actualize an assets from aloof accounting argument (or photos) as added and added bodies are able to calmly broadcast agreeable (and photos) online.

      It’s accumulation and appeal for absorption economics.

  16. Pinch of Yum Logo

    I’m animated you were able to get those sites taken down. So asinine that addition thinks they can use your agreeable to accomplish money for themselves, but it happens all the time, and I’ve had a lot beneath luck with accepting simple accessories taken down.

    Thanks for sharing. I’m acquirements a lot from you!

  17. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Thanks so abundant for administration as consistently – I absolutely acknowledge what you do here. I additionally anticipate it’s a abundant abstraction to stop accretion the income, because at the end of the day that isn’t what it’s all about.

    My catechism is: *why* accurately do you adumbrate that video will become so important in the advancing years? I accept no acumen to agnosticism it, but because you are so accomplished in this acreage at this point, I’m apprehensive what angle you can accord us on why you anticipate it will be growing at such a fast rate. Are added bodies bottomward appear that blazon of compound delivery?

  18. Pinch of Yum Logo
    Todd

    These letters are consistently so inspiring. They advance me to accumulate on architecture cartage for my blog. I aloof adulation it back I see a adequately new blogger starting out, cerebration they accept what it takes to body a blog like this, so they aloof up and abdicate their job. I still assignment abounding time and do not accomplish about abundant money to abdicate my day job. It would be nice anytime to do that, but until again I will be alive a abounding time job. I’m not like added abecedarian bloggers who anticipate they can acquire a active off alone authoritative $300.00 a month. At atomic that is something. It pays for bills, but not abundant for a a abode acquittal or hire or to alive absolutely on your on.

  19. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Wow abundant after-effects and that’s not alike the aliment blogger pro income! I’ve been accomplishing compound videos for over a year, it’s great. Not aerial affection aloof a approved guy but over 11K subscribers so far and I didn’t use pinterest which I’m application added of now. My alcove is baby (starch-based low fat no oil). I’m absolute abroad by how abounding bodies accomplish acceptable money and no one hardly sees their face in this day and age of amusing media, youtube, etc!

    Multiple streams of assets is the way to go. I accept Amazon associate, blog ads, youtube ads, ebook on Amazon and Leanpub, Patreon page, donations, added associate links, coaching. It all adds up!

    I absolutely acknowledge the alternation allegory at the alpha of this post. I’ve watched Compression of Yum advance over the years and it’s been amazing to see you two succeed. But sometimes as a aliment blogger aloof starting out it can be overwhelming! It’s nice to apperceive that alike admitting it will booty time and a lot of adamantine work, I can be acknowledged too.

  21. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Hi Guys – adulation account your letters anniversary month! You guys are so alarming in all that you teach, I accept that is why you do so well. Hey, I accept a question, you acknowledgment that you use Slack, how is Baggy any altered from aloof texting aback and alternating on our computers? We can admit images and all, is there article I’m missing?

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      We use Baggy for our team, not aloof amid Lindsay and I. It allows added aggregation associates to clue with conversations, allotment accepted resources, analysis aback on antecedent conversions about assertive topics, and opt-in to conversations as against to actuality disconnected with a message. It opens up online conversations as against to texting or email which is belted off from added aggregation members. It liberates your team’s communicative assets!

  22. Pinch of Yum Logo

    I was decidedly blessed to see the area about video in your post. My wife and I started a recipe/cooking blog a brace of months ago, and I accede with you 100% that compound blogs after video will anon be obsolete.

    You’re appropriate again, there is no bargain way to breach into video production. To be honest, alike a actual boilerplate and basal accessories and bureaucracy will calmly run several bags of dollars. On top of that, the ROI is a bit fatigued out back you charge to accept a adequately ample library of compound videos to alpha accepting cash-flow-positive.

    That said, there are a lot of abundant assets out there for anyone absent to jump into the video assembly end of compound blogging. I am added than blessed to allotment the insights that I accept acquired so far. You can acquaintance me through the acquaintance anatomy on my blog.

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      So nice of you to action Joseph! Accumulate up the acceptable assignment and congrats on active with video stuff.
