$30 A Day: Update…

.
Short update:

So, in my last post, I mentioned my desire to have 30-dollar days online this month. I haven’t achieved it yet. However, it’s only been five days since my last post.

My average so far this month is $7.89/day. Few reasons why:

 – The extra gig I got in February has been relatively quiet this month.

 – I’m yet to get into the habit of being available for proofreading when there’s more work (I’m not a morning person).

 – Life.

.
There are, however, 20 days of the month left. 🙂

.
My plan is to focus on hitting one 30-dollar day this month. Let me get there first. Then if and when I do, I’ll move forward from there.

I’ll use this month as a test run.

Ideally, I want to be having mostly 30-dollar days by June. That’s the target I’m setting myself.

I’ll get there eventually.

I want to.

Online Earnings – March 2017

.
I wanted to make $300 in March, and I did. I made $385.18. In the last post, I mentioned it would be nice to finish at $400. Almost made it. 🙂

I’m proud of myself because March has been a personally challenging month. But despite that, I reached and surpassed the initial figure I had in mind. It’s also the most I’ve made since October.

I made about $180 more in March than I did in February. My total works out at an average of $12.43 per day.

Breakdown:

(amount in brackets is the currency in which it was received) 

Proofreading: $212.98

Short tasks: $140.71

Appen (recording): $16.97 (23 AUD)

Info (where I make money proofreading): $5.00

Clickworker: $5.80 (5.44 EUR)

Pinecone Research (survey site): $3.72 (£3.00)

Total: $385.18

 

 – Pleased with my proofreading earnings. It’s the most I’ve made since October.

 – The writing gig I found last month has turned into a gig composed of various other tasks. I hope it proves to be a medium to long-term gig. I’ll just make what I can while it’s there.

 – I don’t get contacted a lot by Appen to do stuff. Last time I did something with them was May. 

 – I wrote a detailed blog post about the proofreading site I use to make money. It’s password protected. If you wish to access it, please read this first (including the important update at the bottom). If you’re then still interested, please PayPal $5.00 to this email: me (at) getpaidtofart (dot) com.

 – I’d had some money sitting in my Clickworker account for a while. Minimum cashout’s 5.00 EUR. I was invited to do a survey which pushed it over the minimum, hence the payment.

 – Pinecone Research is a reliable survey site that’s been around for a while. The surveys are infrequent, but I can’t think of a time when I haven’t qualified.

 

Plans for April:

Will write about that in my next post. 🙂

Online Earnings: February 2017

I thought I’d write my end-of-the-month update today. I usually don’t do that ’til several days later or a few weeks. Other times, much much later.

I made almost the same as I made in January. There’s only a difference of less than a dollar.

Maybe I should have been more specific about how much I wanted to make. I said I wanted to make more in February than I did in January, and I literally did, but that’s it.

January, I made $205.32.

February, I made $205.75.

Can you believe that?!

February’s a short month. I think I would have made more with a few extra days. Also, I haven’t been working from home as much for the past month or so, which had an impact on my earnings.

Anyway, earnings breakdown. (amount in brackets is the currency in which it was received) 

Proofreading: $166.68

Writing: $24.98

Info about where I make money proofreading: $7.53 (Interested? Read this first.)

Prolific Academic (survey site): $6.56 (£5.27)

Total: $205.75

.
(Writing: I stopped freelance writing ages ago. Well, it feels that long. But I found a new gig recently. 
The pay’s not that great, but it’s flexible and there seems to be a lot of work for now.)

 

Plans for March

Like most months, I’d like to make more than I did the previous month. I’m going to be specific and say $300. This is a temporary figure, however, as I’d like to make more than that, but let’s see how the first target goes.

My main focus will be on proofreading and writing this month. My main focus, really, should be organisation, getting into a work rhythm. I feel if I do that, then I’ll have a better earning month.

Online Earnings: January 2017

Gonna go straight to it. I made $205.32. Happy with that as I wanted to make more than I did in December ($180.71), plus $200 was my preferred target.

Breakdown:

(amount in brackets is the currency in which it was received) 

Proofreading: $195.36

Swagbucks: $6.25 (£5.00) (read review)

Pinecone Research: $3.71 (£3.00) (read review)

.
Proofreading’s how I mostly make money online. It’s been the case for a few years now.

I stopped using Swagbucks a long time ago, but logged in one day to find I had enough points to request a £5.00 PayPal payment. I have a few active referrals to thank for that.

I’ve been using Pinecone Research for some years. I receive a survey or two each month, and there are months when I receive nothing, but I always qualify for a survey when I receive one. Of all the survey sites I’ve used over the years, Pinecone’s the one I’ve stuck with the longest.

 

Plans for February

I’d like to make more than I did last month. I’m at $81.61 at the mo’. It’s possible to surpass last month’s earnings if I make $10 a day for the rest of the month. Proofreading can make me that if I organise my time better and focus more.

I also want to add a few other ways to earn online, add more variety. Proofreading’s getting monotonous.

I said I was going to get back into testing (specifically uTest), which I haven’t. I should, especially as there’s money to be made there.

Also want to add another survey site, Prolific Academic. It pays fairly well and the surveys aren’t boring.

If I can juggle those three, I should be able to make more over the coming months.
