As expected July was down on what I anticipated when things really took off in May. In the end the BBQ website (setup during the Earn1000 Course) made £485.89 from 145 sales via my website.
While this is not as high as I would want my expectations have been skewed from how well the website did in May 2016, where it made over £1000 in a single month. However, nearly £500 in July is still great, that is £500 more than I had before I created this website, which is still in its infancy. Over the past 3 months (May, June, July) the website was made £2,207.75 from 529 sales.
I know some of you who have made your own websites are not seeing much action at the moment, but remember this BBQ website is now 16 months old (since I first registered the domain name), and it was not until March 2016 (11 months after the website was first registered) that I achieved my first £100+ month. So be patient and keep growing your website slowly but surely and things will start to take off.
Couple more stats. The BBQ website got 5,370 visits across July, so averaging about 173 people per day, which is not too bad. Each visitor was therefore worth about 9p. In June and May each visitor was worth about 11p so a little down on those months. June averaged 197 people per day and May was 314 people per day, which quite frankly was very surprising. I blame the good weather and the bank holidays for this. So while July figures were lower than hoped it has still been a great month.
