February Update 2…

Just a quick update on the month since my last post.

I’ve made over $400 ($415.24). I was thinking, as I was edging closer to $400, that perhaps $500 was possible – but with a couple days left ’til the month’s out, I don’t think I’ll hit it. I got close, though. ūüôā

Anyway, the month ain’t out yet, so who knows what could happen? Either way, it’s more than I made last month.

.
Proofreading accounts for a big chunk of the month’s earnings ($300+), followed by the Crowdflower tasks I do on Gift Hunter Club ($50+), then a couple other bits and pieces
.

.
The company I proof for is fairly new – finding their feet, establishing/re-establishing rules. The rules have recently changed slightly¬†for shift work, so I’ll be doing less hours from next month. It’s OK, though. Been keeping my eyes open for additional eggs; have signed up to a couple of things, so we’ll see what March brings with those.

February Update 1: Gift Hunter Club/Crowdflower, Proofreading, Clickworker…

Thought an update’s due on how things are going for me this month.

It’s been a good 10/11 days. I’ve made close to $200 so far.

Proofreading…

This is the¬†first full month¬†where¬†I’ll be doing the extra hours I mentioned previously. So my earnings are set to increase quite a bit compared to last month. Last month, I made $110.42 proofreading. This month, I’ve already made over $150.00. To explain, this is from the one gig, but consists of income from:

– anytime I log in at my leisure and there’s work

and

– hours I’ve signed up for/committed myself to do (extra hours)

So, one is flexible, while the other is shift based. But it’s the same job.

I make more during shifts as there’s an hourly rate, so it’s accounted for about two-thirds of what I’ve made this month.

For anyone interested in joining the site, who¬†feels they’re qualified, I’ve written in detail about it. Read the following post first, then if you’d like more info, that post tells you what to do. /¬†To be clear, if you decide to apply for the gig, it¬†won’t be for shift work. It’ll be for the other option I mentioned. You log in when you want and wait for work as, if and when it comes.

OK, moving on…

 

Gift Hunter Club/Crowdflower tasks…

Quick recap:

Crowdflower is a company that divvies up lots of short tasks amongst lots of people. I guess the premise is that a mass job gets done much quicker if a lot of folks do a bit each, rather than a handful of people trying to manage the workload and taking a good while.

This is commonly known as crowdsourcing and Crowdflower isn’t the only company that does this. There’s Amazon Mechanical Turk, Microworkers and Clickworker, for instance.

(I said this was gonna be a quick recap, right?!)

Anyway, so Crowdflower tasks can be found on a number of GPTs (get paid to) sites including Clixsense, Cashle and Gift Hunter Club. I’m supposing these sites get a cut which is why they host it.

My preferred GPT platform for doing Crowdflower tasks is Gift Hunter Club.

Last month, I made $77.00 on Gift Hunter Club, most of which was via Crowdflower tasks I did. | (read more about CF tasks and Gift Hunter Club)

This month, I’ve made $37.00 so far ‚Äď so¬†I might beat last month’s figure. I think I can.

 

Clickworker…

I mentioned in my last post that I wanted to add a third earning strand this month and would look at Clickworker (similar to Crowdflower).

I signed up to Clickworker a few years ago. Used it intermittently, then stopped using it altogether in 2012/2013.

Used it a bit last month. But this month, I was of the mind to explore it more and see if there was money to be made.

The work available depends on where you’re based. For the UK, I found there was hardly any work. However, because I’m online a lot, and I’m a night owl too, I’ve been lucky to come across some work.

So far, I’ve made about $45.00 there this month, but I won’t receive¬†any of what I’ve earned ’til March. I can wait.

 

So that’s me so far…¬†

I’m half thinking it would be nice to get a $500 month this month. Will¬†keep my eyes open for possible opportunities to do so, but not push too much. If I make $500 this month, great. If not,¬†the month’s still shaping up OK.

I ultimately want to be making $1000 online a month. And more. I have debts to heal. I want them gone by the end of this year, if not completely, then significantly. But I want to do it my way in terms of how I earn; mostly flexible is important to me.

 

Laters, y’all…

Online Earnings Feb to Apr 2014…

I thought it’s time I updated this blog before it near enough forgets who I be. ūüôā

I’ve been focused on other things, and even if I wasn’t, I tend not to want to force myself to do any updates when the interest isn’t really there.

I’ve still been earning online though, not loads, close to¬†the same every month.

So, without further ado…

(clears throat)

Earnings Breakdown (feb-apr): $471.22…

Feb: $159.22

Mar: $144.57

Apr: $167.43

I’m not going to do a breakdown of each month, but I will do a breakdown of where it all came from over the above 3-month period.¬†(any figure in brackets means it’s the currency in which it was received)

 РBlog commenting: $287.40

  Clixsense (ptc/gpt site): $83.56

 РEditing: $57.36

Notes:

– My interest in Clixsense waned last month, so I didn’t reach cashout there at all¬†in April. The earnings you see are for Feb &¬†March. / Task completion is how I earn a bulk of my money there. However,¬†the¬†task area’s undergone¬†a major overhaul. As such, I’m not sure I’d be earning as much as I used to anyway had I worked through April. It’s not the reason I took time out from it¬†though – lost interest just before the change – but I think it’s just as well.

– I can’t seem to find the link for HealthHub, but when and if I do, will share.

 

Plans For May…

I’m gonna get back to using Clixsense regularly — I won’t be setting an earning goal since the task area’s different. I’ll just see how I do this month.

Apart from that, it’ll be nice to have an extra gig this month. I already have a fairly new one with my existing client which I’m enjoying (re: editing). I’d like to get one more gig this month – one that I enjoy – and pays fairly well.

 

Hope y’all have a maaaarvellous May :-).

peace/out…
