Haven’t done an update on my online earnings in a good while. I thought it was 3 months’ worth, but it’s actually 4 months. My last earning update was for January. Anyhoo, here goes:
(any figures in pounds means it’s how I was initially paid.)
February Earnings: $323.19…
– Blogging (private clients): $148.32
– Forum posting: $44.87
– Playing slots: $44.36 (£28.06)
– Blog commenting: $43.08 (priv client: $39.16; Fiverr: $3.92)
– Pinecone Research (UK): $4.73 (£3.00)
– CloudCrowd: $0.03 (Cloudcrowd & I have parted ways in the tasks dept, but I’m still earning from referrals.)
– I play slots online. Not as much as I used to, which is a good thing. On average, I spend £10 a week. Sometimes, I make a profit. The £28.06 you see is pure profit after I’ve subtracted deposits made.
– Fiverr’s a site where you sell a service for $5.00. Mine’s blog commenting. You don’t get the whole $5 as Fiverr takes a $1 fee and Paypal takes a cut too, so you end up with $3.92. But if you can come up with a service that doesn’t take you long to do, it can be worth your time.
– First time I’ve cashed out on TreasureTrooper. I’ve been a member there for a couple of years, but never really had that much interest in completing their offers/surveys. I had some money sitting there, but not enough to cash out. I kinda left it at that. However, when TT introduced tasks some months ago, I started doing those & reached payout. Now I have, I don’t think I’ll be going back. Just wanted to say to myself that I’ve cashed out there. TT works for some people, but I find their pay threshold too high for my patience ($20). I can also do the same tasks on other GPTs I’m with (Cashle, Swagbucks and most recently Clixsense), so there really is no need for me to stick with TT.
– Pinecone Research has a UK & US version. Invites are unpredictable so just keep your eyes open for them if you want to join. In the meantime, read my review about Pinecone Research UK. I don’t expect it’s that much different from the US one.
March Earnings: $295.14…
– Advertising: $115.62 (Yup! Someone bought advertising on a few of my blogs!)
– Blogging (priv. clients): $58.13
– Blog commenting: $51.40 (priv client: $39.64; Fiverr: $11.76)
– Playing slots: $36.55 (£23.04)
– Forum posting: $27.27
– Squidoo: $1.03
– You can read my review about QuickRewards Network if you’re interested in learning more about it.
April Earnings: $73.20…
– Blogging (priv client): $26.04
– Forum posting: $14.50
– Blog commenting: $3.92 (Fiverr)
– Consumer Intelligence is UK residents only.
– I didn’t do too great in April, partly because I came into some money offline, so I cut back on online activities.
May Earnings: $254.79…
– Playing slots: $121.21 (£75.03)
– Blog Commenting: $88.31 (priv. client – $80.47; Fiverr – $7.84))
– Blogging: $26.04
– Clixsense (paid-to-click): $8.57
– Survey: $4.15 (£2.65) (Opinion Outpost UK)
– CloudCrowd: $0.21 (earnings from referrals)
– playing slots – I got lucky. It’s not the norm.
– Clixsense is not just a paid-to-click site anymore. In addition to clicking ads, you can now complete tasks, offers & surveys. I only stick to ad clicks & tasks though. Minimum cashout has also been decreased for all members – it’s now $8.00 for standard members and $6.00 for premium members. So, more ways to earn + lower min cashouts means reaching cashout’s a lot quicker. Last year, I would have been lucky to cash out once or twice, but this year I’ve already cashed out twice (actually, three times – I’ve cashed out in June).
– FreeUKpounds isn’t that great a GPT site to start with, and I think they’ve finally realised this because they’ve put the site on hold for some time while they work on improving it. Good move.
Phew, right, I’m done here.
