March 2015 came it an impressive $695.77, which I’m very happy about since anything over $500 is a very good month for me. The majority of it ($536) was in dividend payments but sales of my Ebooks How to Get a University Job in South Korea: The English Teaching Job of Your Dreams and The Wealthy English Teacher: Teach, Travel, and Secure Your Financial Future were also significant.
While my Amazon sales were not huge this month at around $15, a positive thing was the number of sales I made: over 30. The way that the Amazon Affiliate program works is that the more sales you make, the greater your commission rate on all the items. I attribute this to selling a lot of ebooks (my own and others) on this new site I’ve just started, ESL Speaking. This was basically my first full month earning on that, so the future is looking bright. I’m already getting a decent amount of traffic from Google and I plan to release another Ebook that will complement this site better than the ones I already have.
Compared to previous year’s passive income:
March 2014: $466
