November 2011 Earnings Report

My earnings for November increased quite nicely.  Exponentially, in fact.  (Of course, I earned less than 6 bucks in October, so it’s not hard to top that.  However, you also have to remember that I dipped my toes into the passive income pool for the first time in late October, so right now every penny of passive income feels like a lottery win to me!)  The breakdown is as follows:

AdSense:  $61.48
Affiliate sales:  $2.60
Book sales:  $0.35
Total:   $64.43 


About two-thirds of the AdSense revenue came from Webanswers (needless to say, I have something of a crush on them now); a little less than one-third came via my niche site, with the rest coming from article sites like InfoBarrel and Seekyt.  I’m also pleased with the affiliate income; again, it’s not much, but two months ago I probably couldn’t have told you what affiliate income was. 

And let’s not forget the royalty from the sale of a single copy of my book: $0.35.  Go ahead and laugh, but you have to bear in mind that I’ve been primarily focused on developing my niche site and really haven’t done any book marketing, so this was a nice surprise as far as I’m concerned. 

In retrospect, I’m happy with the results.   For those of you keeping track, here are the sites I’m using as the foundation for building my own passive income streams:



***Please note that many of the links above are affiliate links, which means that I will earn a commission if you purchase products or services via the links I have provided.  More information about these products and services is available on my Resources page.

As I’ve already noted, the Q&A site WebAnswers has been my bread and butter thus far, and I recommend them as the first stop for anyone looking for a venue to begin earning online.  I’m also a firm believer in article-writing, so any of the revenue-sharing sites  – InfoBarrel, Bukisa, Seekyt, etc. – are also great.

Finally, I don’t think I mention this in my previous posts, but I had a goal of earning $2/day online by the end of November.  I just squeaked by, but my goal for December is a more ambitious $5 per day (with a stretch goal of $10/day) .   We’re almost halfway through the month, now, so keep your fingers crossed!
