    Congrats on another amazing month! I understand your disappointment in the drop in affiliate income, yet somehow you still managed to have your best month yet even with that–so it’s great to see the stability you’re creating across the business that helps keep your income consistent, even with fluctuations. Bravo!

    Hi Kate,

    Thanks so much for the inspiration! You’ve motivated me to get to work monetizing, and I’ve already seen financial growth since I started implementing some of your strategies.

    As for Instagram, my advice is to have a mixture of posts. Right now, I see that most of your posts are pushing people back to your site. I’d encourage you to share personal posts more often. The photo of you and your husband did significantly better than your other posts. Also, I’d use more hashtags. Make your post, and then immediately following the post, add 30 hashtags. 30 is the maximum amount and I recommend that you take advantage of all of them. (And I recommend not using the same hashtags every time.)

    I’m growing at a rate of 2k+ followers per week of IG, and I’m more than happy to share what I’ve found works and doesn’t as I move along.

    Thanks again!

    • Hi Toni–So happy that you’ve seen some financial growth since implementing–congrats!! Thanks for the tips on IG and well done on your growth! I have started doing more personal stories, and then a few personal posts here and there… I just don’t like social media so have to decide what’s best for me vs. for the business, and it’s not always a match. 😉 I used to do 30 hashtags and didn’t feel like it made a difference, but will consider doing that again. Thank you!

    I am currently running Mediavine ads on my blog and have similar traffic to you. I feel like Mediavine cares so much about their publishers and does so many things for us that it would be hard for me to ever switch. However income is obviously important and I can’t deny those numbers! Do you have any further insight into switching from Mediavine to AdThrive?

    All income comes from 1 website?
