I've passed $50k in monthly revenue! Which is a ginormous number and a record for me and my sites.
This post is a draft. I'll keep writing this post today while the tweet spreads! Keep coming back for more info :D
Many of these income reports are sleazy af, so I'll try to keep it clean and real in an FAQ style.
📈 $52,843/mo revenue in last 30 days (PR🏅)
🎒 Nomad List: $30,416/mo
👩💻 Remote OK: $20,467/mo
📖 MAKE: $1,960/mo
🗺 Hoodmaps: $0/mo
📊 Extrapolated ARR $634,116/year
How does it feel
Money and happiness
Completely unrelated after you can pay your bills. Revenue just becomes digits on a screen that you want to increase kinda like a game. Which is nice but also might be an interesting critique on capitalism if you want to go there :P
Validation of nomad/remote work space
This validates there's a lot of attention and real business to be made targeting the nomad and remote work space. Even if nomads have previously had an image of low-income. There's money here.
Validation of building a company remotely while traveling
I've built these sites while traveling every few months to a new place for the last 3 years.
Validation of indie makers
I'm an indie maker that built these sites and this business. I didn't raise ANY venture capital.
Validation of solo makers
And I'm solo. I mostly DIY'd and used off-the-shelf tools to build it.
You can make lots of money with morally positive stuff
The internet is full of stories of people making money with sleazy internet marketing scammy stuff, but I guess my story shows you can make fun websites that help people in their lives positively and even charge money for it!
Passive income is bullshit but automation is NOT bullshit
The more revenue, the more incentive I get to talk less honest
The more revenue, the more I feel like talking politically correct and less honest in these kinda posts. Simply because there's more at stake. But that's stupid too. I'll continue talking about how this progress in my sites, business and personal life affects me. Because it's an interesting case study to observe.
Send me questions
If you have more questions, please tweet them to me. I'm still editing this post so will add.
P.S. I just wrote a book on bootstrapping indie startups called MAKE. And I'm now on Instagram and Twitter too if you'd like to follow more of my adventures. I don't use email so tweet me your questions. If you like what I'm doing, consider backing me on Patreon.
