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. ūüôā

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. /¬†(UPDATE – May 2017: Sadly, the proofreading company’s closing down this month.)

¬†– 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. ūüôā

Update: How I’m Doing This Month In Ze Money-Online Department

.
Wanted to post an update over a week ago, but put in the wrong password and locked myself out of my blog!

Ho hum.

Anyway, I’m baa-aaack!

.
In terms of making more than I did last month, I’m doing pretty good. By around mid-month, I’d surpassed last month’s earnings which I’m pweesed about. I’m at $255 at the mo’, $50 more than I made the previous month.

And there are still 10 days of the month to go. ūüôā

.
What’s responsible for how I’m doing this month:

¬†–¬†Keeping some kind of pace with the proofreading.

 РGetting a new gig (various short tasks).

 РPushing myself a bit more.

.
I’ve had more commitments since early last month, plus my sleeping pattern’s been wack, so I’m quite happy to be making more despite those factors.

.
Here’s to the rest of the month. Would like to finish at $400…because why the hell not? ūüôā

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.

I’ve Made Over $3000 On A Proofreading Site!


(UPDATE – May 2017: Sadly, the proofreading company’s closing down this month. For those who applied and were successful, I hope it was a good source of income for you.)

Do you feel you have a good grasp of English grammar/flow with an eye for spotting typos? Do you tend to be on the computer/internet quite a lot?

Well, hello there! *waves* *schmiles*

I’ve been doing proofreading work that’s been making me some part-time income.¬†

I joined the site in question in June 2014 and since then, I’ve made over $3000.

I log on when I want, and can work from anywhere with an internet connection (I got to test this out late last year when I travelled to the US and Africa).


It’s very much a part-time income. In the time I’ve been using it, the most I’ve made in a month is $366, and that’s because an additional proofreading role was created (which no longer exists).

Take away that role, the most I’ve made in a month is $250.


I’m pretty much on the computer all day, so the work suits me. I can do it alongside other stuff.

The workflow isn’t constant; there are busy times and there are quiet times. However, the site mentions when the busy times are likely to be.


I can’t truly quantify the time I spend for the money I get (though I’ve tried), because the workflow isn’t constant. All I know is that, most times, I’m able to cash out $10 by the end of the day, and sometimes $20. I, however, don’t spend all day on it. If I’m logged on and work comes in, I do it (if I want to), then do other things ’til something else comes.

.
More info about the site…

I have a post (password protected) that goes into detail about the site including screenshots, proof of payments received, and tips.

If you’d like to access the post, please send a PayPal payment of $3.00 to me (at) getpaidtofart (dot) com, then email me for the¬†password. (* Price goes up to $5.00 from Jan 21st).


I have to reiterate: because it’s proofreading/light editing, your English has to be pretty¬†good. If you’re not confident that it is, please don’t waste your money.

 

If you’re interested and feel you’re qualified, what you’ll be paying for is:

– the information/knowledge I share about the site.

– the time I put into writing the post (over 1500 words) and putting screenshots together.

– further support I may be able to offer you if the site accepts you.

.
What you are not paying for is:

– a guarantee you’ll be accepted by the site when you apply. I cannot guarantee that.

.

The information shared in the password-protected post is unique…

I’m yet to come across a write-up¬†about the site, or indeed one from a worker’s perspective.

If you have questions, please leave a comment below.


(UPDATE – Feb 2017: It’s recently come to my attention that you need a CV/resume to join the site. This wasn’t the case when I joined back in 2014. I only had to take a short test. Please bear this in mind and have a resume handy.)
