Online Income Report for October 2007

Wow.   October was a good month.  At the beginning of the month, while looking back at the income for September, I said that I would like to see a 15%-20% increase in October.  I easily doubled that.  Here’s how everything ended up.

  • TLA: $104.05
  • Adsense: $34.78
  • PPP: $11.00
  • Linkworth: $49.00
  • Amazon: $6.53
  • CJ: $5.38
  • Auction Ads: $1.93
  • Private Sales: $100.00
  • Kontera: $17.32
  • Shareasale: $1.82
  • Clickbank: $26.96
  • ClixGalore: $7.50

Grand Total: $366.27

For those of us who are mathematically challenged, that’s a increase of $106.51 or 41% above Septembers earnings.   The obvious increase is in the category of Private Sales.  I think that’s a category that I’ll be exploring a little bit more here in the future.  It’s beginning to get tiring to have some of these companies taking 30%,50%, or more of the income for advertising on this site.  Some of them do add the ease and convienence of having an automated system and a marketplace, but is is worth the price?  I’m beginning to wonder.

Another obvious change is in the earnings from Kontera.  When I first signed up on July 10, my representative told me that it would take 30 days to get the system completely integrated and for it to “learn” what ads convert on my site.  So far, I’d say it’s taken about 90 days.  An increase of over 300% tells me that the system a has done a fair bit of “learning” in the last month.

Finally, some other thoughts.  PPP may be going away completely very soon.  The number of opportunities that pay anything are drying up (at least in the class of blog of the one I use for PPP) and I really just don’t have the time to troll the opportunities page to find the well paying ones.  If you don’t find them immediately, they are usually gone within minutes.

To close, I have a question of you, constant reader.  As I mentioned, I am thinking about taking a lot of my advertising here private.  I’ve had less than successful attempts at doing that in the past.  What would you like to see in advertisement options?  What would make you want to advertise here?  What prices would convince you to purchase a link here?  Feel free to comment as anon if you feel you can’t be honest using your real name. (or that I might be offended and not like you anymore 😉 )
