Expenses

Our expenses increased some because we are growing which is awesome! Our cost for our email list also increased because we now have more than 2,000 people on our email list which is great! We switched out hosting service which I think most of you will notice the site has became much faster. We think this will bring a better experience to our users and keep them watching longer! This almost doubled our expense for hosting but we think it is worth it!

Hosting (WPHostingSpot) – $17.50/Month

Email List (MailChimp) – $44.50/Month (Cost increased when we hit 2,700 email subscribers)

YouTube Managment (TubeBuddy) – $11.40/Month

Total – $73.40/Month

Revenue

We still have our 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 have planned for the rest of 2016

We have been looking at ways to increase traffic and one of those is called backlinks. What is a backlink you might be asking. A backlink is when someone puts a link to your website on their website. The more backlinks a website has the more authority Google thinks your site has.

I will be sending out an email in May asking for everyone who has a blog to write a short review and put a link to our site in their review.
