How much I made in December

I started this whole adventure late in the month, on the 19th as a matter of fact. So these numbers are pretty good, I think. Take a look.

Online Surveys, Paid Emails, Trial Offers

Advertising

  • GoogleAdsense - $.33

Paid Posts

  • Blogvertise - $2.00

DECEMBER TOTAL: $79.31

Not bad for 12 days! As you can see, Cash Crate is doing really well for me. I really like the program. I would like to shift my focus there a little bit more toward referrals and doing the trial offers. I think referrals are the key here. I have some good ideas on where to get referrals and will be working on them this week. I really do think I can do at least $100 through these guys.

Another thing I've realized is that three of the survey site (Cash Crate, Inbox Dollars, and Treasure Trooper) all have two daily surveys. I could, feasibly, do all six each day. That's a lot of survey. But even if I did only one per day the payouts, respectively, are $.80, $.75, and $.75 giving me $69 a month guaranteed. I'm just learning I'm not as much of a fan of the long surveys. I did sign up for Pinecone Research but have not gotten an email from them yet. I'm interested to try them out.

I still need to wait over 2 months to get into some of the paid posts sites like PayPerPost and Smorty. I'll be looking at some affiliates fr the site to see how that goes. I have a feeling this is going to be a long slow process that includes hard work and a good amount of blog marketing. So, do me a favor and go tell your friends about me!

Thanks for this! I'm new to blogging, adsense, and all that good stuff and am always looking for ways to pick up extra cash here and there. Thanks for the tips!

Ok, I posted a link to your site on my blog which should help your traffic. Although I'm only getting about 1,000 visitors per month myself. I'd like to sign up for Cash Crate. If I click on your ad banner does that automatically sign me up under you? If not, please send me a referral link.

It does take you to my referral page so THANK YOU! It really is doing wonders for me. I think I should be able to meet my $150 online income through that alone!

Thanks for the link as well. I'll add yours. Loved your site!

Congratulations! You are doing great. Stumbled.

I have a payout of $20 from PPP in December. Good thing I didn't lose access to my blog. I published a post on the bad experience.

Hope this year will be better for you.

Interesting... Do these programs impact Google PR and what are your thoughts if they do?

Keep up the great work! I have yet to seriously monetize but I'm starting to get sponsor offers so that's why I ask.
