When One Spoon went on hiatus nearly two years ago I unsubscribed from most of the marketing type lists that I used to be subscribed too. There were only two I didn’t unsubscribe from. One of the two lists that I remained subscribed to was Steve Scott from http://www.stevescottsite.com/. (The other one in case you’re interested was Marcus Sheridan over at The Sales Lion.)
And I’ve been watching Steve’s progress with great interest. And recently it seems that Steve has been everywhere being interviewed about his success with Kindle. Plus he’s also detailed his strategies and their results over the last year or so.
If you don’t know who Steve is a good snap shot of his success can be found on these posts:
And from those posts here’s an excerpted list of his income from the last year or so presented on a month-by-month basis:
- May 2013 – $10
- June 2013 – $760
- July 2013 – $375
- Aug 2013 – $265
- Sept 2013 – $2330
- Oct 2013 – $3015
- Nov 2013 – $4285
- Dec 2013 – $15,310
- Jan 2014 – $19,143
- Feb 2014 – $14, 146
- Mar 2014 – $16,623
- Apr 2014 – $13,787
- May 2014 – $61,751
- June 2014 – $50, 320
Now these figures aren’t the whole story, there are expenses (that Steve also lists in his posts), but I think they’re pretty interesting figures. And major kudos to Steve for being so transparent about his results.
Those four posts I linked above are definitely worth checking out because Steve lists his traffic and subscriber numbers as well as his income…and those metrics have experienced similar levels of growth.
(Paul’s Note: Steve has other books out there in Kindle land than the ‘habit’ books that he writes – this income just represents income from those habit books.)
