Income for August 2007

Let’s get right too it.  The following is the income from this and other sites earned in the month of August 2007.

  • TLA: $93.36
  • Adsense: $21.06
  • PayPerPost: $25.50
  • Linkworth: $37.93
  • Amazon: $7.55
  • AuctionAds: $0.35
  • ReviewMe: $21.00
  • Private link sales: $20.00
  • Kontera: $4.26
  • ClixGalore: $1.25

Grand Total: $232.26 (Compare to July 2007’s Income)

Of course, as before, these are the total incomes, not necessarily what will be sent to me.  Many of these sources have minimums for a check.  The best example of this is Adsense which only sends a check (or eft) when your earnings reach the $100 mark.  I just got a check from them this month, so it could be the end of the year before I see another from them.

Income was down this month.  Only by $64.74, but down nonetheless.  When you think about it, that’s really a pretty good % drop.  21.8% to be exact.  A little more than 1/5th of the monthly income.  The biggest things that happened this month were a drop in revenues from TLA.  They are still my biggest earner and it picked up at the end of the month so September should be better there.  Adsense was also down by about 1/3.  I made some tweaks to my rotations so Adsense impressions were down as well.  PayPerPost dropped drastically as well.  I’m a little picky as to which opportunities that I take, and there just wasn’t a great selection.  September should be even lighter for PPP.

AuctionAds continues to be a dissapointment.  I think it would do a lot better on more product oriented sites than what I’m running it on, but at $0.35 in August, it may be on it’s way out here.  Kontera may be out here as well.  After a month and a half, it’s performing poorly here, but has performed well on another site I’m running it on.  Well enough that I’ll likely keep it there for a while longer to see how it does.

You’ll also see that Amazon increased by over 100%.  All I have to say about that is that Text Books are great.

I’ve got a few other things in the works and I’m hoping to increase in September.  It looks good so far as TLA and Linkworth are both showing higher estimated numbers for September.

Income for July 2007

I haven’t gone about spouting out my income from my digital adventures, but have seen a few others doing it lately and really thought it might be interesting to do for a while.  More as a record keeping venture for me and a way of setting goals and such for the future.

Incomes for July 2007:

  • TLA: $132.32
  • Adsense: $30.14
  • PayPerPost: $86.77
  • Linkworth: $28.00
  • Amazon: $3.68
  • Commission Junction: $9.77
  • AuctionAds: $5.20

Grand Total: $295.88

Not bad considering that I sold off my highest paying website when I sold A Penny Saved.  Some of you will be wondering how I make money with PayPerPost when there are no PPP posts here or on eBayHabit.  Well, I post them elsewhere.  Any paid post here or there or anywhere is always marked as a paid post.

One funny observation from last month stemmed from the fact that Amazon doesn’t pay you until the item has shipped.  Quick Quiz…  Can anyone tell me what I might have sold that shipped on the 21st of July?

That was easy wasn’t it.  Harry Potter.  I wrote a post before about how the preorder was available and somehow from that, I managed to sell three copies of the book.  It only amounted to a little under $3 but as you can see from the Amazon total, that was about 80% of my income from them last month.

One other point I should make is that not all of these totals will be sending me money this month.  Some have payment caps that I haven’t reached yet and as such, my money gets held by them until I reach that cap.  Adsense, for instance has a $100 cap that I just reached in July for the first time in about 3 months.  Therefore, I’ll be receiving my first check from them in over 3 months this month.
