    Earlier this week I finished my analysis of 78 blogger income reports from August to see how their revenue is generated. What amazed me was these 78 bloggers generated close to $900k in revenue for the month using OVER 170 different revenue sources.

    I took those 170 sources and broke them down into seven categories:
    • Affiliates: $301,475.66
    • Products and Services: $134,413.73
    • Sponsorships: $130,674.65
    • Advertising Network: $46,192.87
    • Freelance: $36,831.42
    • Consulting: $11,898.32
    • Unclassified: $235,263.54
    Unclassified: Revenue that doesn’t fit into the previous six categories or the income reporter didn’t get an details on the specific revenue.

    Without overwhelming you with too much data, I wanted to share the Top 5 Affiliate Programs and Top 5 Advertising Networks these bloggers used in August:

    Top 5 Advertising Network
    1. AdThrive — $14,316.07
    2. Google Adsense — $6,592.51
    3. Mediavine — $1,158.41
    4. YouTube — $780.70
    5. PadSquad — $728.00
    Top 5 Affiliate Programs
    1. Bluehost — $114,455.00
    2. Amazon Associates — $45,078.16
    3. Zero to Launch Course — $17,277.80
    4. Convertkit — $12,918.33
    5. Clickfunnels — $10,921.00
    If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this thread. Looking forward to hear from you and making these reports even better.

    NOTE: I have a blog post that breaks this down a little further but can't post the link yet.

    Great study, thanks for sharing.

    I wondered about the last three affiliate programs, are the numbers from many different bloggers or only a couple of them.

    Can you post the link for the blog post now.
