Upon first glance, I’m sighed “crap” under my breath while looking over my new income report infographic. I didn’t make much. Especially after an awesome month just four weeks ago, but here’s why!
Why is this Income Report lower?
The main reason, I didn’t have a sponsor post or an experiment earn any income this month. I did have an offer for a sponsor post. However it wasn’t a good fit, so I said “hell no”. I turned down $150 because I really LOVE the community I’m building and didn’t want to even slightly damage it with a crappy post. So I’ll stay poor another month.
My Experiments this month
I have been conducting two experiments this month, one involves selling stock photography and the other involves building a sweet Twitter strategy. If you’re on Twitter, you’ll easily see my around 10 tweets a day.
Seriously, I’ve been on a Twitter Storm, I’m trying to get to 1,000 Tweets and analyzing what Tweets work the best as well as growth hacking my Twitter Account. If you’re on Twitter, Follow me @WalletSquirrel. I’ll personally thank everyone who shares this post on Twitter. =)
Coming to Wallet Squirrel – Adam
Wallet Squirrel is getting a new contributor joining “Team Squirrel”. This means Wallet Squirrel will have even MORE posts and MORE experiments earning extra cash to invest. Adam will have his first post soon, but I wanted to do a quick introduction.
Adam and I have been best friends since 2007. We graduated from the same design program in college, I was in his wedding (my role may surprise you) and we built our first successful affiliate website together. This is the one we’re currently revamping. He knows a thing or two about building great websites. We’ll do a big reveal soon!
Basically he’s a BAD ASS, and will bring a ton of new strengths to Wallet Squirrel. We’re starting off strong and will hopefully build up to something like DividendDiplomats.com in the future. Those guys are crushing it and we hope to reach that level in the next couple months.
Adam hasn’t written a bio yet, but it would highlight these skills. He’s an SEO machine, dabbles in programming/app design, organizational freak and production hack expert. I’ll let him expand on those later.
I will admit, I was a little nervous about bringing on someone new to “Team Squirrel”, especially after I’ve done so much to build up this community on my own, but I recently got some awesome advice (thanks Dividend Diplomat, Bert) that ran along the lines, partnerships work when you feel they’re like family. That resonated with me and I was convinced I wanted to try. So let’s give an awesome welcome to “Team Squirrel’s” newest addition, Adam!

Did I mention, I made some money this month?
Does anyone have any great Twitter advice for growing an audience?
