It has been a crazy month. I’ve been putting in lots of effort into growing the revenue for Emnotes and have a redesign for the website that will be launching this February, but that’s not the reason why it has been crazy.
I’ve been working two part-time jobs in order to subsidize a few essential purchases, like a stack cutter machine and some photography services for the website. Working for “hours” was something that I didn’t want to see myself doing, but times got tough with business and I couldn’t move forward without a small push.
Here’s the report in an organized chart for you to look at:
[table id=2 /]
13% progress, and +157% growth from last month.
Let’s break it down a little bit.
Zero income, no referral commissions, no income from anything else.
Double accounts this month, we’re in the triple digits in terms of monthly recurring income, but I’ve learned a very valuable lesson when it comes to choosing your clients.
I will likely write a post about this later but I felt it was important to bring up today. When you charge low prices, you get a certain type of client. This person is looking to save and is likely willing to sacrifice quality if it means getting a good deal. I’ve encountered this multiple times when I used to tutor math and when I’ve done websites for clients.
The ones who I charge less end up being the toughest customers.
We will be expanding our team to the United States, though I am still looking for a representative who can help out with accounts in Latin American Spanish. We’ll be looking for higher paying accounts. Future investment plans: $50 in marketing through my own agency representative.
This thing continues to grow, and I will be getting some help in the manufacturing process, but so far so good.
