A Blogger’s 5 Year Affiliate Earning For Inspiration : $78290




Earlier I shared a detailed report of my 4 year AdSense earning, and one of the Shouter suggested to do a similar post for Affiliate marketing income, and it make sense to share such a report. Before earning from AdSense, my first earning was from Dreamhost affiliate program, where I earned my first $47 as affiliate income, and that was a very big amount at that point of time.
Funny thing is, when I started blogging, I had no idea about AdSense or affiliate marketing, and later on I got to know about how blogs are making money. Anyways, this is the story for some other day, but for now lets talk about affiliate earnings.

Since I have used various affiliate program and network, it’s hard to give an accurate report here, but I will take the report from my major affiliate program, and calculate the earning using that.

Where to start with Affiliate marketing:
There are countless number of affiliate model that people follow, and I follow the technique of sharing about stuff that I use and earn income out of it. If you are using other monetization technique other than AdSense, I recommend you to make a slow transition to affiliate marketing too. Add 1-2 banner of related affiliate product on your blog sidebar and see how it’s working out for you. Here I have shared some articles which every newbie should start reading to get inside the affiliate marketing:
What is Affiliate marketing and FAQ
How to promote Affiliate products on your blog
Monetize Indian Traffic with Amazon India affiliate program
How to promote Dreamhost Affiliate program
The only suggestion which I would give you while getting into affiliate marketing is, work on creating a sustainable model instead of hit and run model. Affiliate marketing model is very lucrative and worth your time, if you doing it the right way.
This year I’m focusing more on turning RIYONTECH monetization technique into more product based rather than affiliate and other contextual ad network. I will keep sharing my learning and finding with you. You can subscribe to our Email-newsletter for all the updates.



How To Calculate Income Tax on Adsense Income in India



Blogging as a full-time profession has been growing rapidly in India with people from all spheres of life creating their own blogs. A major reason for increase shift towards professional bloggers is the self-satisfaction associated with doing something of your own and also the monetary income which comes mainly from Google Adsense.
In my earlier guest post for riyontech readers, I wrote an article on overview of income tax on bloggers and freelancers and this article I would mainly be focusing on Income Tax on Adsense Income only. I’m assuming that most bloggers don’t have much knowledge about manner of computation of Income Tax and I would be explaining everything from the basic and will try to simplify everything as much as possible.
Income Tax on Adsense Income
Firstly, it is important to note that only Income Tax is levied on Adsense Income in India and no other tax like Service Tax, VAT, GST, Excise Duty etc is levied on Adsense Income. Earlier, Service Tax was levied on Adsense Income but now No Service Tax is levied on Adsense Income. Irrespective of how much you earn, Service Tax won’t be levied on Adsense Income in India.
Before explaining the manner of levy of Income Tax on Adsense in India, it is important for a blogger to understand the concept of Financial Year. Income Tax in India is levied on the yearly income earned by a person in a financial year. The Financial year in India starts from 1st April and ends on 31st March. Therefore,
Financial Year 2013-14 would be from 1st April 2013 to 31st March 2014
Financial Year 2014-15 would be from 1st April 2014 to 31st March 2015
The total income earned from Adsense and other sources during a financial year would be added up and tax would be levied as per the Income Tax Slab Rates in force. The Income Tax Slab Rates are announced by the Finance Minister in the Budget and keep on changing every year. The current income tax slab rates are mentioned in this link: Income Tax Slab Rates for the year 2013-14 and 2014-15.
Once you have computed your total annual income from Adsense and other sources, you can also make use of various income tax calculators which are available both in the web interface and as mobile apps. The most popular web-interface income tax calculator has been prepared by the Income Tax Department itself and can be accessed from this link. The ICICI Bank tax calculator mobile app for Android and iOS is also good in case you prefer to use the calculator as an app on your mobile.
Computation of Total Income from Adsense
To provide services to the advertiser, you would have incurred some expenditure as well like Hosting expense, telephone expense, internet expense etc. Therefore, the amount received from the advertiser is not your income, it is the Revenue. Income is the net amount which you have earned after deducting expenses and depreciation. (The concept of Depreciation has been explained below in this article.)
There is no pre-specified set of expenses which can be claimed. Any expense incurred by you for earning revenue or has the potential of helping you in earning future revenue can be claimed as an expense which will lead to reduction of total income leading to reduction of taxes payable. I’m creating an illustrative list to help bloggers understand the nature of expenses which can be claimed:-
Hosting Expense
Domain Renewal Expense
Telephone Expense
Internet Expense
Electricity expense
Salary Expense
Website development expense
Fuel expense
Meeting Expense
Content writer expense
This is only an illustrative list and there can be many such expenses which are allowed to be claimed. After computing the total annual revenue, total annual expenses and total annual depreciation, the income would be computed in the following manner:-
Total Annual Revenue xxx
(Less) Total Annual Expenses (xxx)
(Less) Total Annual Depreciation xxx
(=) Total Annual Income xxx
What is Depreciation?
If for providing your services, you have purchased a laptop worth Rs. 50,000 and installed internet connection on the same @ Rs. 1,000 pm, these are to be subtracted from the total annual revenue. The amount spent monthly on internet connection is an expense of recurring nature and can be shown as an expense as explained above.
However, the amount spent by you on purchasing a laptop is a one-time expense and the expected life of a laptop is usually 2 years. Therefore, the laptop becomes your asset.
Over a period of 2 years, your laptop efficiency will keep on reducing gradually and after 2 years, it will require a change. This gradual effect of reduction in the value of your asset is called depreciation.
As the expected life of your laptop is 2 years, you cannot allocate this cost to only 1 financial year. This will be allocated over 2 years and the formula for the same is as follows:-
Annual Depreciation = Total Value of the Asset
Total Life of the Asset
Therefore, the cost of the laptop would be allocated over 2 years i.e. Rs. 50,000/2 = Rs. 25,000. This Rs. 25,000 is the depreciation on laptop every year for 2 years after which you will have to purchase a new laptop.
Depreciation is levied on all assets which have life of more than 1 year. Some examples of assets on which bloggers usually claim depreciation are mobile, laptop, desktop, office furniture, cars etc.
Filing of Income Tax Returns
Once you have computed your total annual income and the tax payable thereon, you would be required to file a statement with the income tax department showing the manner of computation of income and the tax payable thereon. This statement is called the Income Tax Return and is required to be filed every year. All Incomes from Blogging and other online incomes (incl. Adsense, Affiliate, Services etc) are required to be disclosed under head “Profits or Gains of Business or Profession” and you can submit this information in either ITR 4 or ITR 4S.
The last date for filing the income tax return is 31st July which comes after the end of the financial year. Therefore, for the Financial Year 2013-14, the last date for filing income tax return is 31st July 2014.
However, in case you have a big business and your annual revenue is more than Rs. 1 Crore per year, you would be required to get your income tax audit conducted by a Chartered Accountant and the last date for filing income tax returns in this case would be 30th Sept.
Although the returns are required to be filed only once in a year, tax is required to be paid in 3 installments in the same financial year in which the income has been earned. The payment of tax in instalments in the same financial year in which it is earned is known as Advance Tax.
The procedure for payment of taxes and filing of income tax returns is now fairly convenient as everything can now be done online.
Income Tax is a wide gamut of complications and there may be some intricacies involved in the computation of Income Tax on Adsense. For the purpose of simplicity and better understanding of the concept of Income Tax, I’ve only given an overview of the computation of Income Tax on Adsense Income.
If you are not much comfortable with Income Tax, it is always advisable to consult a CA. A CA usually charges Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 30,000 for small business. The rates increase as the scale of business increases. However, before approaching a CA, you should also have some basic knowledge of Income tax which have been explained above.

Why? What? How? Rule in Writing Blog Post?



I’m going to share one Blog post writing tip which I usually follow when writing about any topic, reviewing any tool or when it’s not a news post. This one tip will not only make your article interesting and meaningful but will also make it actionable/doable. Not to mention, these are three important attributes of a quality article, that Google likes.
Why What How Why? What? How? Rule in Writing Blog Post?
One of the most common way people start writing an article/Blog post is, directly talk about the topic. For example, if you are reviewing one antivirus tool, you will start with tool details, description and features. Now, this approach is not bad but again what’s the harm in making your article as desirable as your personality. Increasing the curiosity of your readers and later point them to the topic.
That’s where this rule of Why, What and how comes into picture. It triggers the action mechanism of readers and they would love to read and follow your article.
Lets consider three simple scenario:
A Blog post talking about software only.
A Blog post talking about software and how to use it.
A Blog post talking about problem you Face in day-to-day computing, a software which takes care of issue and how to use it.
Now it’s no brainer that most of you will pick point 2 or 3 as decision-making blog post, and that’s where the formula of Why, what and how comes into the picture.
World of why, What and how?
Why – Create the requirement
Most of the time a general user is happy with what he have. When I was using a Normal Mic, I never realized the need of professional mic for reading. After reading reviews and some of the live recording examples of professional mic, I moved to something better. (Blue yeti mic). Similarly, most of your readers are not sure why they need particular tool or they need to learn about certain things.
Another example, when I talk about SEO, I always mention in first few lines what it could do for you and why you need it. To make it more credible, I always link to previous article which can throw more information on it.  You can always take advantage of your post headline to trigger the Why/curiosity factor easily.
What? – Talk about Product
So,  now you have created the need for users by telling him why they need something better than what they have now or they don’t have. It’s more like creating a demand. Now in this part you will be talking about topic/tool/subject of your topic. Give all the information which makes your reader understand more about it and make them want it.
How- To use the product/knowledge in real-life
Now, one major reason where most of bloggers failed to create a difference is by explaining how. You have talked about one of the best microphone recorder in the world, but you never explained how to use it. This will surely affect your conversion and your blog is not fulfilling one important thing here: Action part.
Just writing about a software and giving a download link will not make sure that people will download everything you mentioned, they need to learn how to use it.  Images and videos are the most important factor here, as they now only give them a view of what they are going to get but when they actually start using it, familiar factor will work.
Where you can see such example:
Many organization work on concept of What-How and what.. An iPhone ad is great example of this. Similarly if you land on most of the landing pages, you will notice most of the videos are created with intro of real life problem and then they either talk about product or show demo and then reveal what’s that product they are talking about.

This is not a rocket-science but a simple Marketing rule, which works in every part of your life. Specially, when it comes to creating a difference with your blog posts, this writing formula will create a huge difference.
Specially, most of content writers I have hired they straight away jump to factor what or how, and they never work on Why factor, which is the building block of your blog post.  Specially when you are reviewing a product, this Why, what and how factor will create a huge difference.
Sometime, it’s not possible to combine all these three factors in one blog post, and you can always create follow-up posts to cover all the three factor. If you are into affiliate marketing, following this technique will surely triple-fold your Affiliate sales. You can see an example in two links, which I mentioned below:
EasyWpSEO plugin : Keyword optimization plugin for WordPress
How to configure and use EasywpSEO plugin
Now go ahead and try to implement this simple tip while writing your next blog post and notice the difference in user interaction and satisfaction.
