I am very pleased to say that October 2011 was yet another record month – and to be honest, it was waaay beyond my wildest expectations.
The trend in my income reports over the last few months, has probably surprised me, more than it has surprised you, my loyal reader.
As each month comes to a close (with yet another record), the very first thing on my mind, is how on earth am I going to beat that next month?
Thankfully, I seem to be able to figure out a few new ideas to put into action each month, and (so far at least) the trend of significant increases is alive and well
Like in pastÂ income reports, in this report, Iâ€™m going to share with you the key activities that I undertook this month, what worked and what didnâ€™t.
As always, if you think my income report is worthy news for your followers, please tweet and share on yourÂ FacebookÂ wall by clicking on the buttons over on the left. Thanks, you rock!!
If this is your first time reading one of my income reports and you are wondering why I publish them, the reason is that I believe in being super transparent in my business â€“ almost as though I was a public company. A public company has to share everything about their performance and it doesnâ€™t seem to hurt them, so I doubt that itâ€™ll hurt me either.

KeyÂ ActivitiesÂ in October
Like most every month before it, October was a month full of activity – and I dare say, almost too much activity – which has got me thinking that lessÂ might be moreÂ as I go forward.
As I write this, I’m readying myself for a trip into the woods with pen and paper to see what I need to stop doing, so I can focus more on my core activities.
I’m sure some of you can relate to the feeling of just having too much going on, ya?
Last month I wrote about how I’d tried some new fancy-schmancy webinar software that was supposed to allow me to put my webinars on auto-pilot. Alas, that initiative was a horrible failure because the software was crap.
This month saw me return to holding live webinars, or more accurately, one webinar (singular).
I’m happy to say that it was a smashing success with a record turnout and very strong sales. Suffice to say, I’ll be doing more webinars in the future as they seem veryÂ popularÂ with you all.

As I have explained in the video below, I have come to believe that there is a substantial opportunity to rapidly increase your cash flow by building and then flipping some of your Adsense sites. This belief is the reason for the whole Niche Site Mass Production Project (NSMPP).
To understand the numbers that make this model work, just watch the video below.
I did hold a flippa auction of my own with 25 of my Amazon affiliate sites and will be publishing a more detailed post about the results in the days ahead. Suffice to say, it went very well
Video Tycoon Site
Back in September, I did a podcast with Nate RiversÂ and in that podcast, he explained his niche site strategy and how it is different than what anyone else is doing.
Nate is killing it with his strategy and ever since the podcast, I’ve been on the hunt for a writer to hire to create my first video course for me. I’m very happy to say that I’ve now found my writer(s) and have not just one, but two course in the works.
I’m paying my each writer $1500 for each course and hope to have the site(s) launched in the next 30 days. As you might guess, I’ll be blogging about my progress doing forward. I can’t wait to see the results! If it turns out anything like Nate’s sites…all I can say is cha-ching
