A month has passed since I started my online existence, financial net result is zero, nothing earned so far.
It’s not that we have done nothing, but it just did not yield yet.
What have we done:
I will get the surveys page updated with more details, but basically I’ve been signing up to all that seemed reasonable, doing the surveys diligently as they were presented and became available, however I did not get to the level on any single one to cash out. Lesson learned here is that when you’re not in one of the big countries that it’s very difficult to get any sizable yield out of this.
Doing freelance type work:
Also I tried to do some creative work, got registered on Jovoto and I must say this is run very professionally. Obviously, half a month is on the short side to earn money, but the potential is there.
Will continue the survey work, I’m close on some, within the next month I should be able to get a cash out. Also if more creative work comes out I will continue to participate, the sums that are being paid out for winning ideas are very nice and will help a lot to add more content here. And I will expand into site and application testing, should be able to do this pretty well given where I come from.
And this site needs more content, needs work on the layout and design and obviously needs a lot more visitors.
That’s all for now, the journey continues, the path is still long.
A milestone has been reached, I got my first visitor on this blog, either intentionally or as fluke, whichever, it did happen.
It might be a small feat, but nevertheless, calls for a little celebration. And I would say that’s what we all should do more often, celebrate the little things, enjoy what you have when you have it. Tomorrow you still might have it or not, but that initial feeling will be gone.
I did not get a prize yet on my submission to Jovoto, which is fair. It’s my first attempt and I didn’t put enough time and effort in. Lesson learned and it’s a motivation to do better and bigger next time.
That’s all for now tomorrow is another day.
It’s been a while since I last posted something, not because I had nothing to say, but more so because I was busy with probably way too many things than that I should have. On top of everything I had to work also.
I’ve been doing surveys and adding survey sites very diligently over the last couple of weeks. And I can for sure tell you not to give up your job just yet. Maybe if you’re in a large economy you might be able to gather a bit of cash on a weekly basis, but if you are in a smaller place, away from the big countries, forget it. it’s not going to happen. The closest I am at the moment to earn some money is on Toluna, maybe a week or two before I can initiate a first payout.
My aim is to still be able to run a parallel online income stream. First target is to get sufficient payout from something to be able to get this site in it’s own domain.
Additionally doing some design challenges seem to be fun ad a possibility to generate some cash. Not that I am a great designer, nor that I have a specific talent, but at least I can give it my best try and see how far we get. If you want to seen what I’m up to, check the submissions I made on Jovoto.
And I need visitors, for a moment I thought I had one visitor, it turned out that it was myself who had looked at this from a different computer. Was almost about to jump a hole in the air. I guess I just need to increase my presence, use better tags and post more. I’m learning. Slowly. Will get it right at some point.
That’s all for now.
