The graphic below has the full summary of Lead Safe Mama, LLC’s Amazon earnings from 2020
When you make purchases using Lead Safe Mama, LLC’s affiliate links (almost all of the links here on the Shop Lead Safe Mama website!) you are directly supporting our work helping families ALL OVER THE WORLD to protect their children and communities from exposure to Lead and other toxicants in their homes, schools and environment. Thank you for choosing to support our work in this way.
We (reluctantly) started earning money through recommending products via Amazon affiliate links in 2017.
Below is a summary of our total Amazon affiliate earnings for the 2020 calendar year (it also shows our Amazon income for all previous years on the bottom of the graphic!) As these earnings are paid with a two-month delay this does not reflect income received in 2020 – just income earned (via this one source) in 2020. Combined sources of affiliate income make up nearly 25% of the total gross income of Lead Safe Mama, LLC (with Amazon affiliate income being the lion’s share of that each year to date) and – as such – affiliate income is an important part of our revenue stream.
Our Amazon Affiliate Income Goal
When Lead Safe Mama, LLC’s Amazon affiliate income approaches (and passes) $60,000 a year we will be approaching a sustainable business model where our work here is fully funded through our activities (and we will no longer need to rely on direct contributions from our community to help cover the cost of the work). As a result our goal is $60,000 a year in Amazon affiliate income. This works out to an average of $5,000 a month in Amazon. In 2020 our average monthly Amazon affiliate income was $2,111.92 – about 42% of where we need to be to reach this goal. If every single reader of the Lead Safe Mama website started their Amazon shopping with a click on one of our links we would easily meet (and likely quickly pass!) this goal.
Page-views as they relate to Affiliate income
We achieved this 42% of this goal with just over 3,000,000 unique page views on the Lead Safe Mama website in 2020 (an average of just over 250,000 page views each month.) This is one of the reasons we have set a monthly page view goal (for the LeadSafeMama.com website) of 600,000 monthly page views. With 600,000 monthly page-views (7,200,000 page views annually) our combined sources (of all types of income – including consulting income, speaking engagements, affiliate income and advertising/sponsorship income) should easily surpass our goal of earning at least $240,000 in gross income… which is our overall target for reaching full sustainability (with the work of Lead Safe Mama, LLC fully and directly covering the costs of what we do here!) This is why I am always asking Lead Safe Mama readers to go check out the Lead Safe Mama home page (LINK) and find a post that interests you (and that has information that you think your friends might find helpful and useful) and simply share those posts (daily? weekly? every couple of days?) Simply sharing our posts helps us work towards both sustainability (in terms of covering the costs of our work) AND helps us to reach more people with the messages and information we share (which – in the end – is more important than any penny or dollar earned!)
Reminder: You don’t need to purchase a product that we recommend for us to receive a portion of what you spend on Amazon. Just start your Amazon shopping each time by coming to this website and clicking ANY of our links before you shop (which will add an invisible Lead Safe Mama “cookie” to your shopping basket) and we will earn a percentage of what you spend… AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU… no matter what you buy!
Thank you again. While we really cannot stand the paradigm of the Amazon monopoly as a rule – we feel that if you are going to shop on Amazon anyway… we may as well receive a percentage of what you spend in support of our work towards consumer goods safety and awareness and childhood Lead poisoning prevention.
