Income Report Roundup – June 2020
These online entrepreneurs continue to adapt. Although the future is difficult to predict, many are now comfortable with their new direction after all the world changes. Many have found success in catering to their customers’ new lifestyles, which includes a lot of staying at home!
#1 Takeaway – Cater to Your Audience – Throughout these highly turbulent times, the thing that has lead to success for most of these online entrepreneurs is to cater to the lifestyles of their audience. The common theme with success is that entrepreneurs have geared their content and their digital offerings towards peoples’ stay-home lifestyles. Things such as do-it-yourself blogging content, e-books, and online courses have been where many have seen the majority of their sales.
- Market Research – The implication here is that in order to gather this lifestyle information, effective market research is needed. This means knowing your customer base, knowing their habits, and also paying attention to what your competitors are doing to succeed.
- Make it a Habit – Many know about market research as they enter a new market or niche. But it is worth mentioning that market research needs to be ongoing. Things change, markets evolve, and you need to stay on top of this to succeed. Just because you are on top of your niche now doesn’t guarantee that you will stay there forever. You need to make it a habit to get down to the basics and perform market research at regular intervals.

My Reason for This Round Up:
When I started my online entrepreneurship journey I took a lot of inspiration from others that were sharing everything they did online. Seeing that people like me were making REAL money and that the opportunity to replace my day job was possible.
It has been 3.5 years since I left my day job – https://websiteincome.com/quit-my-job/
The more transparent the report the more I appreciated and was motivated by it.
Over the years I have tried to be as transparent as possible sharing along the way my goals, business successes/failures and the ultimate results(profits).
After years of sharing monthly income posts I decided that it made sense to stop these… a decision I actually regret as I wish I had found a way to keep sharing some of what I was doing.
My reason for stopping was my online world and “real” worlds became more connected and it was becoming very odd to share these numbers.
Looking at many of the people that originally had an income round up posts they have also stopped. Namely the most famous in the space Pat Flynn no longer does income round ups.
In this post I will cover…
- List of inspiring income report posts and how they earned their profits
- Recognize motivating people showing not just telling people the results they are achieving
- Learn from others – What the key learning is from the people
