Two things worth noting here:1. There is no Online Income Statement for March. This is because aside from a teeny affiliate sale on Amazon, I really didn’t make anything.
2. The quotes have been removed from around the word “Income” because, thanks to Clickworker/UHRS, I am now actually making some money online. Woo hoo! Yeah, it’s definitely not passive, but maybe passive online income isn’t going to be one of my areas of expertise at the moment, (if ever).
Let’s go through all of my income sources:Adsense - $5.34 This is an increase of 78¢ from February. Woo hoo.
Affiliate Sales - other than Amazon, ZIP, NADA, Goose Eggs, Zed.
It’s becoming apparent to me that I am not the world’s greatest affiliate marketer. I was never any good at sales, even in person. (I once, disastrously, tried to earn a living selling health insurance). I had hoped that “selling online” was somehow different, but maybe “sales is sales”, and I just suck at it?
By the way, my affiliate sales activity is so poor that I was recently contacted by my account manager at A2Ads to see if I am still active. Sad, huh?
Amazon - I earned the whopping sum of $4.80 back in March. This was solely due to a coworker graciously consenting to use my affiliate link when ordering some supplies for the office. So I have made at least one affiliate sale! Woo hoo.
AdFly - Almost 11¢ . Woo hoo. As I get around to it, I’m removing AdFly links from my pages. (I’m lazy - please forgive me!)
LinkBucks - WHO FRIGGIN’ CARES!! Hopefully I’ve gotten rid of every LinkBucks link from my pages. I won’t bother listing these turkeys anymore.
.... and now for the only website worth mentioning:
Clickworker - Two payments to my PayPal account totaling $14.25, along with a pending amount of over $90.00 which hasn’t been disbursed to my PayPal account yet.
Although affiliate marketing sales seem to elude me, I CAN do the tasks on Clickworker/UHRS, and while I won’t earn enough there to change my standard of living, it is enough to help pay off some bills, or pay for a nice dinner once a month for all of us.
Obviously Clickworker is the only website worth bothering with, at least for me. I wrote a quick review of my experiences with it here, “http://buyingnirvana.com/words/clickworker-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly/”, and would recommend everyone to give it a try. If you do decide to sign up, please consider doing so using my affiliate link, http://www.clickworker.com/become-a-clickworker?utm_source=765696&utm_campaign=CW4CW&utm_medium=email .
That’s all for the month of April. Let’s see what’s in store for May, and whether my good experiences with Clickworker/UHRS continue, or whether I decide to concentrate instead on Amazon’s MTurk, which I recently signed up for.
