50.40% of our traffic came from our email list in August. This is a little more than last month which is fine. Again our email list grew over 35% in August from 886 to 1,199. This increase is awesome! If you are not on our email list please sign up here so you can get each video delivered daily.
19.49% of our traffic came from social which is an increase of 6% from what we had in July. The software we started using in August is working. Hopefully the more we use it the more it will increase our traffic coming from social sites. One thing I did not do much of in August was Instagram. If you are not following our Instagram account you can do that HERE. We are going to try and do a better job in September. If you have Instagram please follow us! I know more and more traffic is coming from organic search which is awesome but would love to see our social traffic increase back to 30%. Please help us get there by liking and sharing on social!

I am sad to say that one of our plugin’s has cause YouTube to not count our embedded video views. Our views on YouTube.com for the month of August were up almost 10,000 over July. Hopefully we will get this problem fixed for October.
I am adding a new section to this report for SEO (Search Engine Optimization). People finding this site by performing a search in Google or Bing or Yahoo is very important! We really want the % of our visitors coming to our site from one of these search engines to increase each month and it has been! Our first month 5% of our traffic came from search and in August 13% of our traffic came from search.
Our expenses increases some because we are growing which is awesome! The software we are using for Social Sharing has really helped with our traffic from social but we had to increase our package! Our cost for our email list also increased because we now have more than 1,000 people on our email list which is great!
Hosting (HostGator) – $9.95/Month
Social Sharing (SlackSocial) – $14.00/Month (Increased Social Shares per/day from 125 – 250)
Email List (MailChimp) – $19.35/Month (Cost increased when we hit 1,000 email subscribers)
Total – $43.30/Month
We just started an affiliate shopping page . If you shop on Amazon or Christian Book Distributors you can go to our shopping page and click on the banner of the site you want to shop on and any item you buy on that website we will earn a small commission of the total sale. We will be listing all the revenue that we make with this affiliate shopping page. Hopefully this can cover the costs that are mentioned above and even allow us to do some more things to help share the teaching of God’s Word!

What we did in August
We are continuing to focus on SEO. We are getting more traffic from search each and every month which is great! These are people searching for God’s Word and we are helping them find it! The more people that visit our site the higher the rankings are in the search engine which causes more people to visit our site. We did a logo survey. We had a new logo made and asked our community what they thought about it. You can fill out that survey HERE. We also designed a T-Shirt campaign with the new logo. If you would buy a T-Shirt with the current logo on it please let us know by sending us a message on our Contact Page.
What we have planned for July
We are going to continue doing what we are doing. We might be adding more affiliate sites to our affiliate shopping page. We will continue to post on all of our social media platforms. We might start a Pinterest page. Let us know what you think about that. Do you have any suggestions for ways we can reach more people? Contact us if you have some ideas.
