Online Income for March 2008

After a pretty flat February (only increased by $2.62), I can’t help but be a little impressed with my March.  Whether it’s the posting schedule (I don’t think it was) or just some of the changes I’ve been made (not that either.  at least not wholly.), or maybe some random mix of those and several other items, March was a pretty darn good month.  Not only that, but it put me over the threshold on many of the accounts, so I should be receiving some pretty nice checks in the coming days.  So, here’s the numbers for March 2008:

  • TLA: $43.66
  • Adsense: $225.00
  • LinkWorth: $49.00
  • Amazon: $36.54
  • CJ: $25.90
  • Kontera: $56.23
  • Shareasale: $27.92
  • ClixGalore: $22.00

Grand Total: $486.28

That’s good for an increase of $148.39, or 43.92% over February.   I’ll take it.  So, why the increase?  TLA is up a little on account of me lowering the price of one of my properties (not this one.  I don’t use TLA here anymore) enough to sell out the spots.  Quantity wins over quality there.  Adsense is up, but mostly just on increased traffic and a little bit of a CPC increase.  I don’t attribute the increase in traffic to the posting schedule here only because the traffic increased almost everywhere.  I’ve been doing a little extra SEO and I’d like to think that that is what caused the increase.  My guess it it’s just fickle ol’ Googley Moogely again.

Amazon is up, but February was a horrible month for Amazon, so that isn’t saying much.  A couple of higher ticket items certainly helped there though.  CJ came through with yet another of the sporadic commissions that I seem to pick up here and there.  Not regular by any means, but again, I’ll take it.  Kontera keeps rising after a pretty precipitous drop after December.  Up over the $50 mark this month which would be nice to keep going.  Shareasale increased from $0 last month to $27.92 this month.  All on one sale.  The funny thing there is that the sale was from a PPC campaign that ended on February 13th.  The only other major increase comes from ClixGalore.  The reward there nearly doubled from $1.25 per signup to $2 per.  That and an overall increase in sign ups and you get a pretty nice number for a banner that I haven’t touched in forever.

Overall, I couldn’t be happier with this month.  The increases are nice to see and I really am hopeful that I will be able to continue them on into April.  There are still quite a few things that I would like to continue improving and hopefully that will help me increase those numbers each month.  I’d really like to see myself over the $500/ month mark consistently in the next Quarter.  I think it can be done, but only with some more work on my part.

Here’s to March!  On to April!

  1. I just dropped by your blog. It is exciting to read this post although the amount of the check is not that big. I’d like to know how many hours you spend on doing those things and how many hours you spent at the beginning of the kind of business?

  2. Congrats on the month and the increase. Mine increased at a reasonable amount too (not quite as high as yours!) which I was pretty happy about. It’s all going in the right direction 🙂
