Visa List Revenue

Travel Industry is the most hard hit sector. I see the trend to continue for atleast this quarter. Probably things might look good for the next quarter.

More than the revenue dip, personally I miss my travels.
On another note, I have been working on coronavirus tracker, even though it doesn't generate any actual revenue, gives me satisfaction that I'm doing my small bit.

Also all the pro features in Visa List are free to use for a month keeping #COVID19 in mind.

We have also entered into a recession. I have no idea how long this will take, but I have new project in my mind so I will keep myself occupied. I hope there will be light at the end of the tunnel and we will pull though this together.

    Hey, do you have some breakdown where your revenue comes from?

    I am working on a project in completely different field (mathematics education - check out https://realnotcomplex.com/), but similarly, it's a website that gives free information to the users, thus I am looking for some inspiration when it comes to monetization options.

    Good luck in these tough times!

      It's affiliate for visa and flights , pro subscription and ads.

        I meant the breakdown, meaning which method brought you the most revenue :)

        Of course I will understand if you don't want to share!

          Pro Subscription - 10%
          Ads - 60%

    It'll be a few months, but it's a hard reality that some of us will face, including our SaaS. Keep yourself busy. You'll be alright. While many of us are anti-social, we love to travel. It'll come back once we've figure out how to destroy our unseen enemy.

      I hope so.

    Sorry for the setback! Thank you for your willingness to be vulnerable and share with the community regardless.

    It'll be a tough road getting there, but we'll definitely get through this.

      I hope the same mate!

    @1hakr brilliant product! But the real issue is your eCPM on pageviews is really low because you're relying on Adsense for monetization instead of going after higher ticket ad partners. Would love to collaborate -- [email protected]
