I thought it was about time we shared an update about the site, what we have achieved so far and our plans for the coming months. After almost 3 full months in we are tracking nicely we have just over 70 pieces of content up and are slowly starting to see organic search traffic arrive which is a real positive. We have also recently had an increase in social media generated traffic as a result of your shares and likes so thank you very much for your ongoing support.
Our Youtube channel is also growing and now has 50+ subscribers and counting. Getting quality content on our YouTube channel is a big focus for us over the next month so stayed tuned there.
Semi external to this website we also have 13+ apps in Google Play check them out now and show your support there will a review. For apple users we are not yet on the App Store but it is a goal in the future we just don’t have a time frame on this as it requires a few things that we don’t have in place at the moment.
From an income point of view we are averaging about $5 per month across all platforms in total with the majority coming from the website here and small amounts from our apps. The apps though have shown a solid increase in downloads and are now slowly starting to produce some consistent earning over the past few weeks, I would suggest these numbers are slowly going to continue to increase overtime into a nice passive income as we get more apps up and get better at marketing them.
You may have noticed no weekly wrap posts over the last few weeks and this is due to us making the decision to ends both the weekly and monthly wraps for the time being as we were not seeing significant value from these weekly posts. That being said should people request them or traffic have a decline in the coming weeks this may be revisited.
Other regular posts have taken off quite well and appear to be very popular these posts being Blast from the past and Video of the week. If you would like to nominate your video for video of the week reply to the most recent video of the week post at anytime or hit us up on twitter@matesmadness .
Moving forward we are looking to incorporate product reviews both written and video versions initially using products purchased for the site or to be used in videos. These reviews will be honest feedback either good or bad and at times will contain affiliate links to further improve our income streams. Should you have a product you would like us to review reach out to us to on twitter @matesmadness to discuss.
Primarily the focus over the next month is content covering games/apps posts and our own videos, we are having a big push to get to 500 Youtube subscribers and your support by subscribing to our channel downloading rating and reviewing our apps and commenting on posts here on Mates Madness is a required to help us to continue to grow.
