July Income Report

Introduction

Welcome to my June 2019 income report. My income reports are designed to provide full transparency of the business; further, they are used to prevent conflict of interests in an industry flooded with scams and accusations. The idea for this income report was taken from What Bitcoin Did and the Smart Passive Income Podcast.

Summary

May was another great month, with record revenue and profits.

  • Show downloads: 403
  • Income: $0
  • Expenses: $2260
  • Profit: -$2260

  • 60 day average: 546 (This is only the third month of the podcast, so growth stats are a little wonky now.)

Notes:

Key lessons

To take forward:


July Objectives

Podcast Release:

  • Minimum one podcast a week. Two a week is good if we can line up the guests. There is no fixed schedule right now for release. A set day or time would make publishing easier.

Efficient operations:

  • Find more time to write article for the site. I don't know if this is more news commentary or analysis articles, but writing needs to be at least 2 articles a week for myself and 1 for Ceann.
  • Move email to @endofthechain

Revenue growth:

  • Find sponsor for podcast
  • Create course for trading/investing

Marketing:

  • Create marketing plan
  • Look into twitter ads
  • Check efficacy of Quuupromote

Goals

Short-term:

  • Achieve break even for podcast episodes
  • 10x listens

Long-term:

  1. Achieve 20k monthly income from podcast
  2. Save enough for K's college education
  3. Buy a house in USA and Russia
  4. Write a book
