In the interest of transparency, Spiral Nature Magazine has shared its financials for the past four years we’ve been attempting to make money to pay our writers and editors. You can view the whole history in our financials tag.
October 2018 we published 10 new articles, 14 reviews, 4 editions of our popular weekly astrology column, Hidden Insights, 2 articles available to Premium Members, otherwise known as the Occultnik Cabal, and 5 other items.
All in all, we’ve published 251 columns, articles, and reviews so far in 2018.
Most of it freely available to you, dear reader.
Here’s what little money came in, and where our money was spent this month:
As you know, there are so many great things we want to do with Spiral Nature, but with our current losses, it’s simply not possible.
We had another surplus this month, this time a little bigger: $279! Thank you! A few more months like this, and might move towards breaking even this year. (Unfortunately, there aren’t that many months left.) This decreased our yearly shortfall to -$1,936. (This is, of course, on top of the thousands we lost last year, and in the years previous. All of which comes out of Psyche’s already pretty broke pockets. Sigh.) But, hey, it’s progress! Thank you!
We’d love to at least break even, or, even better, see a surplus so we can increase our payments to writers. (Yes, we want to pay people more. As much as we can, really.)
That’s where you (hopefully!) come in.
Our membership program has been thoroughly revamped, and you’ll start to see new content that will only be available to Premium Members. If you want in, you can for only $7 per month, our you can purchase an annual membership for $70 and save $14 each year. Smart!
Interested? Please sign up today!
Our course offerings are in redevelopment as we work with new software to bring you a better experience, but you can expect to see excellent things in the near future.
Thanks for your patience!
The Occultnik Bazaar is a place to advertise your occultnik services and wares at an entry-level price, and it is ideal for businesses that are just getting into advertising.
We will be offering 20 of these spots once a year, and that’s it. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
As this is the first time we’re offering this spot, we’re putting them on sale early for $90 for the first year, and the advertising will start now — so you get one month free if you book now.
Interested? Reserve your spot now.
Did you know we publish sponsored content?
Sponsored content is a paid article published within the online magazine that is promoted via our social media. In print, and in other venues, this is also known as advertorial or native advertising. It is content paid for by a person or company to promote their products or services.
We work with our advertising clients to ensure that the products they want to promote to our readers match their interests and the goals of our magazine.
We look forward to working with you!
Want to help?
If you don’t have the resources for a Premium Membership or one of our awesome courses, then consider sharing Spiral Nature Magazine with friends you think would be interested in our content.
Also, please let our writers know how much you appreciate their work in the comments. Virtual pats on the back are always welcome.
If you have suggestions for other potential avenues for income, or things you’d like to see Spiral Nature doing, please let us know.
We’ll publish our financials each month, and keep you abreast of any suggestions that emerge.
Thanks, as always, for your support!
