Reselling Vs. Blogging Income Reports 2020

reselling versus blogging incomeLooking to make some extra money? Wondering what the best way to make money is?

Look no further! Here I break down my income from reselling and blogging for you!

Flipping For Profit

First off, did you know there are countless “resellers” who make a living (even full-time income) from reselling pre-owned, used items?

While I’m not a full-time seller (I am a stay-at-home mom), I have been able to make a steady, reliable income from reselling (mostly) clothes.

In fact, I’ve made over $55,000 to date from flipping thrift store items for profit!

And this is from working 10 hours a week (the first year it was just 2-3 hours a week)!

Income Report For Reselling (2020)

Alright, so are you ready for some numbers?

Now, keep in mind, this is purely a naptime side hustle. Yes, I work hard. Don’t get me wrong.

But this is just from working around 10 hours a week mostly during the little one’s naptime.

Of course, 2020 was a year we never expected. So I did end up working several of these months with my older two elementary-aged kids home doing school as well.

Alright, here’s the numbers:

 Amount
eBay Revenue$48,449
Poshmark Revenue$219
Mercari Revenue$94
OfferUp Revenue$30
Grailed Revenue$37
Total Revenue$48,829
Returns-$863
Sourcing-$2,908
Supplies-$202
Shipping (through eBay)-$11,854
eBay Fees-$4,723
PayPal Fees-$1,527
Sales Tax Collected by eBay-$1,331
Pirate Ship-$19
Consignor Payouts-$685
Total Expenses-$24,112
Net Profit$24,717

Over $24,000 net from reselling. Not bad right?

That’s just over $2,000 each and every month.

Again, this is very minimal time. I’m a mom of three kids for crying out loud!

What else are you going to do as a stay-at-home mom that makes that much?

Or maybe you’re working a part-time job you hate and you’re not making that much.

Income Report For Blogging (2020)

Ok, so on to income from blogging (i.e. this website – ListingToFreedom.com).

Spoiler alert: It’s not pretty.

Here’s some history:

I started the blog in July 2019 without a clue what I was doing. I have taught myself pretty much everything besides a few courses I’ve taken.

As much as Pinterest bloggers tell you that you’re going to get rich blogging, for 98% of people that’s probably not true.

And…it’s a TON of work. I mean T-O-N. Like, I don’t even bother keeping track.

Alright, so here’s the numbers:

 Amount
Ad Revenue$343
Amazon Associate$77
Total Revenue$420
Domain Name-$35
Website Hosting-$84
email w/Domain Name-$65
Email list management (Mailerlite)-$30
Tailwind Pin Scheduler-$112
Keyword Research (AHREFS)-$8
Amazon Affiliates Plugin (AAWP)-$42
Teachable Course Hosting-$119
Business Coaching-$97
Courses (Stupid Simple SEO, Pinterest Strategies, Create & Go)-$685
Equipment (Lav, Microphone, Tripod)-$123
Total Expenses-$1,400
Net Profit-$980

Yes, you read that right.

Nearly a loss of $1,000.

And some of the expenses will be going up a lot in 2021.

For 2021, I will probably pay around $360 for MailerLite (my email list manager).

I will pay around $540 for Teachable.

But at the same time, my Revenue from Ads should be around $1,500 and Amazon Affiliates should be around $360. (These are wild guesses based off of revenue for the past few months.)

Not a lot, but I expect to at least break even or make a tiny bit this year from blogging.

The Verdict

So why is everyone screaming “Blog and you can make a gajillion dollars!”

Why aren’t there many people out there to tell you about a REAL way you can make money (aka Reselling)?

Because of a little thing called affiliate income.

When bloggers tell you you need to start a blog, that’s it’s passive income, that you can just sit back and watch the money come in, what do you do?

You run and sign up for everything: website hosting, a pinterest schedule (Tailwind), Canva (to make pretty images, plugins, courses…the list goes on and on.

And every one of those things comes with affiliate income.

They are making money off of you signing up!

They are making money by telling you how great blogging is.

How Reselling Is Different

Reselling is completely different.

Bloggers like me don’t get ANYTHING from telling you about this REAL WAY to make money.

There are very few to no affiliate programs.

Ok, maybe I take that back. Poshmark gives referral credit. I got $40 last year for new sign ups. But that’s credit to shop on Poshmark, not actually income coming in to pay for all the expenses of running a website.

I don’t get anything for you selling on any of the platforms (eBay, Mercari, Poshmark, etc).

I don’t get anything for you signing up for an eBay Store Subscription.

I don’t get anything for telling you about this awesome and fun way to make money.

That’s why you won’t find a ton of other bloggers telling you about this real way for making money from home.

.

So Why Do I Do It?

So why do I spend time running this website?

Wouldn’t it be better for me to spend my precious time working on reselling?

Because I feel called to tell you about reselling. That it’s a LEGITIMATE and EASY way to make money.

That’s the bottom line.

Reselling has literally changed my family’s life. It has meant extra money coming in every month.

And I know there are other moms out there desperately wanting to stay home. There are people who have lost their jobs. Others who can’t get jobs. Some who are trying to get out of debt. And still others who are looking to make some extra money for retirement.

I know someone desperately needs this.

You need hope for the future. Hope that things can get better. Real hope to be able to make money from home.

That’s what keeps me going.

So to wrap up, I want to ask you one question…what would you do with an extra $500-$1,000 or more every single month?

How would that change your life?
