I would start off apologizing for updating my January stats so late into February, but apparently I am not the only one who can’t get it together. All of my favorite bloggers/friends have been very quiet lately and I am missing them!

Come on peeps, stop “building your business” and start tickling my ears! And don’t be looking to me to set a good example because I am not feeling chatty today so this will be a very short update.

Just as a reminder going into January, I had no idea where my earnings would land after Christmas. But I had set a goal to be making $2000 per month by July 1st.

I am happy to say that I already met that goal by the end of January! In my industry job we call that sandbagging – don’t ask me why – but basically you set easy goals so that you can meet them all and look good in your year end review. But honestly, I really wasn’t trying to sandbag. Details on my exact earnings will be in my newsletter which I will try to get out soon.

Since I have already met my main goal for the year I have decided to just relax and enjoy life until August. I think I have earned it.

Not! Instead I am revising my goal to be making $4k/month by August 1st. I won’t say it’s completely doable because there sure has been a lot of flux lately in rankings and Google antics but I will do my best. It will require some self-butt-kicking in particular since my motivation and productivity was dreadful this week as I was distracted with life stuff. Sometimes that is unavoidable but this time I chose to be distracted. Bad girl!

And that is all I have to say! I hope all of you are doing well. How did we get to February already??

    I still want to know how your amazon earnings shot up so fast!

    Can you give some stats like how many keywords you target, no of backlinks builts etc?

    Congrats on hitting your target so early!

      Shot up fast from a year ago? Because they were slowly increasing over the year and then spiked at Christmas.

      No, I can’t give you stats because I am not even close to being that organized. I have tried to focus in on my best site but even then my link building and keyword targeting are a bit random. I’m also still getting some sales from all the lenses I built last summer.

      Are you a member of the Pond? If not, I would recommend you try it as there is lots of good advice there on Amazon sites.

    That is great. Reaching your $2k goal so quickly is very impressive.

    Is that from amazon niche sites?

    Good luck with hitting $4k my July.
