Happy Easter! My monthly post about my Online Earnings was delayed because I was on vacation for the Holy Week. It was 4 vacation days well spent with my loved ones. Now, back to what you came here to read about!
$10 a month goal for March! I earned a total of $15.02 for the month despite the lack of sponsored posts from Sponsored Reviews and an overdue unpaid post from Blogsvertise. Whoops. Read on...
|October 2008 to March 2010 Online Earnings|
Google Adsense - Thanks to Manny Pacquiao (lol!), my Adsense earnings this month was the highest I've ever gotten. I raked up about $9.60 this month, not bad methinks! I can only imagine how some folks would prepare really well in order to capture this surge of searches and Twitter clicks coming from huge media events such as a boxing match. I hear those who use SEO opimization and multiple blogs can earn as much as $200 is one hour from events like this. Whoa...
Nuffnang.com.ph - Php34.69 or about $0.72 only. Notice that sometimes Nuffnang ads are visible and sometimes they're not? I'm not sure about the configuration they have in showing ads, if it is time based or trend-based, but one possible improvement would be to make sure ads are always shown during anticipated high blog traffic events like the Pacquiao match. :p
Sponsored Tweets - Paling in comparison to my previous month's revenue from Sponsored Tweets, I only earned $3.10 this month. They have launched their own link shortener which I noticed generated less clicks than bit.ly - which meant less revenues for them, and less opps for me. Boo...
I was pleasantly surprised, though that one of my referrals had already begun earning from Sponsored Tweets. Way to go!
Adgitize - Earning from this service is based on how hard you work for it. I would say that Adgitize requires a bit more effort to be able to earn significantly. I earned a mere $0.36 this month because, well, I don't work hard for it.
Chitika - Chitika has introduced a new ad service targeting not just their usual Search Engine traffic, but a special "select traffic" not coming from Searches. I earned $1.24 this month.
Blogsvertise - I signed up for this last month and was greeted by an email saying my "Blog has little or no content and/or Blog is brand new and does not appear to be at least 30 days old." After reading their FAQ, it seems I might have to wait a bit before they come to their senses before I can properly earn from this service. :p I have a pending $2.00 payout from them still. Hello guys?
Blog4Reviews - I recently signed up for this website, a service recommended by another blogger friend. I have not heard from them yet, i.e. if my blog was accepted or not. Maybe they're on vacation too? Hehe.
Summarizing - MonetizingIn summary, my online earnings for 2010...
January 2010 = $9.28
February 2010 = $41.87
March 2010 = $15.02
I have changed my Jan and Feb earnings, some services update your actual earnings after a review. In any case, I have now passively earned a total of $66.18 (roughly Php3,000) in 3 months. I have already doubled my target of $30 in 3 months, but do hope my earnings continue its uptrend!
- January 2010 - You can make money on the internet too - seriously!
- February 2010 - "Earning 10 in 2010" - Feb 2010 Online Earnings Update
Continuous learningIt is a continuing journey of trial and error, learning from successes and mistakes. Here are some more things I learned this month:
- If you're planning on blogging and earning from global or national events, you should
- (1) post your blog as soon as the event finished or, in the case of Board or Bar exam results, as soon as they are released.
- (2) You should also do SEO optimization because you will be competing with them SEO experts for the top spot on those search engines!
- It pays to monitor your monthly revenue and it pays to have a realistic target. I developed my target from a zero profit scenario - my cash out for my domain and some miscellaneous blogging cost. Anything I earned beyond my $10 is revenue. It's easy to see how much I'm actually earning and it doesn't take so much effort to monitor it (just some skills in MS Excel haha).
