Hey everyone! It’s time for another income report! I have to say that it has been a busy month. I’ve been working at Squidoo and testing new products and experimenting a bit. I published a new ebook. I’ve been trying a new site. I haven’t even totaled up my earnings yet but I think it is good.
So, let’s start with…
Hosted Adsense (YouTube): $7.35
Adsense for Content: $5.40
I sure wish I could see that Adsense number increase. It is down from last month ($14.44) which annoys me to no end. But I did hit payout this month again. It took 5 months this time as opposed to 6 months last time. After the YouTube is taken out, the majority comes from InfoBarrel and from this site. Which is nice because before when I had this site monetized it got almost nothing!
I have 4 or 5 ebooks out now. Two are under my name and the others are under a psuedonym. This month they earned $5. 56 and all of that was from Kindle. I published a new ebook this month on KDP select and while there were a load of free downloads I only got 3 reviews from those. I’m not sure that it is worth doing the free download thing. But, I guess we’ll see.
Amazon was a good month with higher sales than normal. I made $8.06 and $4.55 of that came from my links on Squidoo. That is a nice start. I am hoping that this amount will just keep increasing the more I work Squidoo!
I put a little more effort into Bubblews this month and cashed out at $51.67. I can’t find my screen capture (likely on my other computer so I’ll add it later) but I think I did 37 posts last month. Is it worth continuing? I think so. Not only do I earn on each short post I do but I can leave backlinks to things like Infobarrel articles and Squidoo lenses. So, I’m going to try to increase my output in February.
I made my first sale with Jaaxy this month and made $8 with that.
I also joined a new program called JVZoo and I quite like it. They have some decent choices of things to sell. I like to buy the things I am selling but I obviously can’t buy them all. I did buy Squick Money though and I am testing it out with a new Squidoo profile to see how well it really does. I think that it has a lot potential. You can follow my testing process here or if you’d like to try it for yourself you can get it here. I’ve had a couple of people get it after me and they have all agreed that it is pretty cool.
So, I’ve made $20 with JVZoo. Pretty happy with that.
AND (this was a nice one) I USED to promote this affiliate program years ago. I had a blog set up for it and everything but it was a set and forget type of thing. And I let it go about a year ago so the site isn’t even live anymore. BUT I am STILL making money from it and I got a cheque for $100 from the this month. That was a pleasant surprise.
I occassionally let people sponsor a blog post or put up an ad on my blog if the money is right and I don’t hate the product/site and this month I got a $50 paid sponsorship on one of my blog posts here. Kind of nice.
