Blogging Income Report for A Cotton Kandi Life. Blogging Incomes. How to make Money Online. Mom Blogger Incomes WAHM Income Report. How to make money Blogging. Blogging Money Reports.The first weekend of October we {myself and a fellow Wedding Professional, Sara #shoutout} hosted a massive Launch Party for the 2017 Engaged couples. At the Launch Party, I hosted a Workshop that Brides attended, where I guided them through a PowerPoint presentation of my ECourse and EBook. We raffled off free books and organizers and had sponsors, yaddah, yaddah. I immediately had a bunch of people signing up for my ECourse. In fact, they got a free checklist if they did it right there before they left.

Here is the awesome part about the launch party too… as part of their registration for a swag bag we collected their email addresses. We built a list that we could follow up with after the Launch Party. This way, those who missed the Workshop could still get the information {about my ECourse and EBook} as well as their free coupons and other promotions deals. We also hosted a giveaway which helped us all build up our Instagram followings.

The Launch Party was crucial in setting up successful newsletter lists but also for me to explain my digital products to real brides in real life, not just on the Interwebs. As soon as I could talk to a person about my System and they could ask me questions, it was very easy to sell…

If you’re just joining in on this monthly income report series, my goal for 2016 is to expand this blog into a financial contributor so that I can stay home more and learn with my Hooligans.

I write 2 blogs, this mom blog {You’re here! Thanks!} and another blog for my career as a Wedding & Event Coordinator, which you can find HERE. This report is a combination of the two blogs. Truth be told, it IS wedding season right now, so I am busy with my in-person clients {really busy} so blogging is taking a backseat for the next few months. I’m actually heading out the door for a rehearsal right now! #ALLSummerFridays

Please join me by subscribing below as this Newbie Blogger fumbles her way through each Ah-Ha moment and forehead slap…perhaps I’ll save you a month or two on your own blog! 

To get the full rundown on my 2016 Game Plan visit my original Mommy Money on the Internet Post HERE.

The punch line for the year is to:

Build the Internet into a bigger financial contributor

Year Goal: $4,750
{2015 = $1,923.80}

October enters…

The Launch Party

As a bride, you’re pretty lost when you start out. I happen to have a product that helps them, immensely. The problem is getting that product in front of them so that it presents itself as a solution and not just another cyber wedding things, which ultimately makes their life more confusing.

The Launch Party was also a great way for me to make sales on items I have in my Tradesy Shop and The Reusable Wedding Program {used wedding items, linens, etc that I sell online.} This segment of the Launch Party was our Wedding Resale Event and we invited other former brides, now wives to bring their items too as part of a consignment sale. All of the items I sold on this day, in person I am not counting as income in this report since it is not actually “Online Money” but, I did put my Tradesy Store on vacation mode so I could take all of the items there to the sale. So if you’ve been following along all year, you know that the Tradesy income has been a huge Sales Report figure, which it won’t be this month.

You can see all of the details for the Launch Party on my other Wedding Blog HERE

 Here are this month’s results:
