One step forward in the hunt for a first return of the online activities, the first payout request as submitted, both for Toluna and Thepanelstation. If the payments comes through it will be the very first money made online. And also it will move both sites up to the category of 100% genuine. I’m preparing a page on that one.
It’s all part of the plan, $99/year is needed to be able to monetize this site, it would be 30% on the way to get there, for the first year with both payouts. The next steps would then be to secure the the $99/year for the following year. Then it’s 100% focus on producing value add content.
All part of the plan, step by step, we’ll get there.
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.
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.
