Journey to $1500/Month With KDP, Apple iBooks and more Before 31 March 2024

Thanks. Yes, I came back yesterday. I will live in Istanbul for about 1.5 - 2 more years. It's a beautiful city, but I think it would be more fun to come as a tourist. I don't like the price-quality ratio (balance) for living here anymore.


Thanks.
My friend, if you are making USD, you will find that price-quality ratio will be well worth it! I know the lira is shit right now but keep going with your IM journey and you will be in paradise. Ah, the cafes of Kadikoy...

I was there a month ago, and it really is as good as you said. However, the rent for apartments in Kadıköy is around 1000 to 1500 dollars a month; if I lived there, I wouldn't have any money left even for food.

I will continue with Asian countries.

What? I knew an American there who was paying like 400-600 for a nice, two-bedroom apartment there. Maybe ask around and talk to people in the cafes. That is where I met everyone. There are all sorts in Kadikoy- immigrants, expats, businesspeople, hipsters, refugees. Take advantage of it and chat them up!

Also I got a mediocre studio on Airbnb there for like 700 a month, so I am sure you can do much better if you are renting!

I've been living in Istanbul since I was born, my friend. When I mentioned 1500 dollars, (There are definitely exceptions, there are many reasons that affect them.) I wasn't talking about a single-person apartment. (Because I have some plans for the future) The prices you mentioned are valid for one person, and I have been to Kadıköy many times. What you said is correct, but it's correct for a single-person lifestyle. Thanks for your help, but it's time to leave this city to others and embark on new adventures. Still, if you come to Istanbul within the next two years, let me know, my friend.

Well, there is nothing wrong with enjoying new adventures! SE Asia is a lot cheaper for sure, so perhaps you will enjoy that.

I will take you up on my offer if I ever get around to getting my hair transplant haha. Istanbul is one of my fav cities. Will be following your journey!
 
@umo98 Hi! I'm considering creating a store on Creative Fabrica, but I'm curious about how they pay for downloads. It seems to me that most people using Creative Fabrica have a subscription, and from what I've read, they pay based on the number of downloads (they divide it among all creators, etc.), but I can't find any approximate rate anywhere on the internet. I want to sell mockups, so I think they are scored a bit differently than illustrations, but from what I remember, the scoring is similar. Do you know roughly how much one would get for 100 file downloads by subscribers? I've searched and searched, but I can't find anything about this on the internet. Support replied to me that it depends on the total monthly number of downloads, Creative Fabrica's subscription revenue, etc., but unfortunately, I don't know if for 100 downloads the amount is closer to $5, $10, or maybe $50. Sorry for bothering you and thanks in advance!
 
I'm a little sick, I'll update the journey in 1-2 days. I'm sorry. (I will be a little late)

I think there was a document about this. If I can find it I will send it to you

The total earnings for this month are $630.90.

I have not yet seen success in my SaaS and travel site projects. On my SaaS site, I managed to collect 32 emails, but I still haven't made any sales. I spent a total of $100 on Facebook and Pinterest ads, but I did not like the Pinterest ads and have decided to continue only with Facebook ads.
Additionally, I created Instagram and Facebook accounts for my SaaS site. I have 6 followers on Facebook and 103 followers on Instagram.

NEW IDEAS / PROJECTS:

Prompt Sales:

I've been creating prompts with Midjourney for quite some time and decided to sell them in two prompt stores, but I haven't made any sales yet. Currently, I've uploaded 5 prompts. I'm considering continuing this.

Quiz Site and Affiliate Marketing:

I'm thinking of doing this after my military service; it's just an idea right now. I will create a general quiz site, but it will also have subcategories and specific topics, and I will add affiliate links in some parts of the quiz questions. The details are not yet clear.

Creating Music with Artificial Intelligence and Starting a YouTube Channel:

I've used around with some AI tools, and it seems quite easy to create music; I've even made a few successful tracks. I will turn these into YouTube videos and create a YouTube channel. I plan to use buymeacoffee as a monetization method. I can start this method soon.

The journey will not be updated between April 19th and May 19th. I will update it when I return from military service.

Questions, suggestions, etc. you can write anything, I will answer as much as I know. Good luck to everyone

I thought these ~$50 was monthly payout but now I realised its total. Can you share have many total downloads you got to earn these $50 (or how many "points" because different type of files have different rate)?

I don't have any data about this, but I earned about 7.5 dollars from direct sales and the others from subscriptions.

I think if you have an expensive or extremely high quality work, you can sell it on etsy or directly on your own site.

NEW IDEAS / PROJECTS:


1) Site update for Digistore24 / Wix

My old site related to Digistore24 affiliate marketing was quite shabby. I had made it with Google Sites. However, I am now thinking of improving it to a higher quality. I am rebuilding it with Wix and making it more professional. I will be working on this for a long time. I still need time for this.

2) Digital products sales store, website / Wix

I will set up a very detailed digital products sales store. The website name is ready, and some of the products are ready; I am still working on it. I will use Meta ads for advertising efforts.

3) Print on demand store / Shopify
I started a store with printful. I plan to sell to 4 countries; Estonia, Spain, Finland, United Kingdom.

I will focus on new projects these days and give a little less attention to Amazon kdp.

Questions, suggestions, etc. you can write anything, I will answer as much as I know. Good luck to everyone
