In my Jan 1st post, I mentioned I wanted to look at some of the ways I earn and up it a gear or two. That’s what I’ve been doing with the following:
I’m back working on CloudCrowd tasks again. I haven’t done that in a good good while – over a year ago – apart from the occasional task here and there. I used to earn good money there until my credibility score took a big hit (my fault – I’m usually quite vigilant) and I was unable to do certain tasks.
Anyway, I’ve managed to get my cred back up. So far, so good. The tasks I’m doing are cool. They don’t take me that long. The pay varies from 25 cents to $10 per task for the ones I’m doing. I’ve earned $45+ so far. I’m being hyper careful, only completing the ones I’m 110% confident about. Though I’m wary about losing my cred again, I’m ready should it happen.
It wasn’t originally my plan to add CloudCrowd to my earnings list, but since there are tasks there I can now do, I’m gonna stick with it for now and put my back into it.
What I used to do with Swagbucks was the absolute minimum. I’d do the daily poll, the NOSO and do one search a day, maybe two. That was about it. I’d miss some days too. And then once a month, I’d reach the minimum I needed to request a £5 Paypal gift card and that would be it.
I’ve started doing a lot more on Swagbucks now. I watch videos, I attempt surveys, I try some free offers, I play games sometimes. It’s made a difference. I’ve cashed out one £5 Paypal gift card so far this month. And another one is on its way. I’m aiming to make it a third by the end of the month. (update – 28/01: Cashed out a 3rd y’day! Don’t think I’ll get it by month end though.)
I also try and reach the daily goal Swagbucks sets, because when I do, I get additional swagbucks (rewarded the following month). I don’t always attempt to hit the daily, but so far, I’ve reached enough daily goals to make 89 additional swagbucks. This will be credited on Feb 5th.
I’m spending more time on Swagbucks, but it doesn’t feel unproductive – I know what I’m looking for when I’m there – I do it. In all, it’s probably an average of 10-30 mins spent a day (the higher end if it’s a survey). I sometimes check at some points in the day to see if there are new videos to watch. If I have the energy for a survey, I’ll look for one. There isn’t always one for me and I don’t always qualify, but when I do, that makes the difference too.
I’m seeing all these ways to earn on Swagbucks that I never used to explore.
I plan to look at my blog commenting service and explore ways I can increase my moneymaking efforts in that area. Promotion is key, which is something I’ve been doing very little of.
Laters, peoplez. Have a good weekend. 🙂
