Here is a breakdown of my online income for December 2011.
Google Adsense – $327.58
Affiliate Income – $284.11
Brokered Ads – $62.25
Direct Ads- $2894.72
Total – $3568.66
My online income was down just a smidgen from the month before. If my income plateaus at this level I really can’t complain but I’m still working on increasing my income. The purchase of Investorz Blog has already resulted in a couple of advertising deals. I just hope I’m not stealing business from my other sites. Most of my affiliate income comes from Bank Bonuses. There isn’t any reason I shouldn’t be making affiliate income from My Retirement Blog and Investorz Blog as well since they are a good fit for financial affiliates. The reason they aren’t making any affiliate income right now is because I haven’t put many affiliate links on them. I’m going to work on adding those without making the sites spammy. I might even add some more affiliate links here if I can figure out a way to work them into my posts without doing posts just for the purpose of promoting an affiliate product.
My main affiliate on Tight Fisted Miser right now is SwagBucks. I don’t make actual cash from promoting them but I usually earn a $5 Amazon gift card or two each month from them. Swagbucks is a good product to promote because readers can make a little extra money from it and I can make a little extra money from it without having to buy anything. I’ll be looking for more win/win products to promote.
