May 2010 Residual Internet Income

May was interesting.  I actually did a good bit of writing but mostly for DemandStudios fixed price articles.  But that isn’t really what I’m after, although the cash is nice.  I had signed up for InfoBarrel before eHow shutdown their WCP so have started really writing there to try to build my residual income.  When I get more details I may change the Adsense row in the table to more specifics, so far I haven’t actually earned anything from InfoBarrel, but I only had 2 articles up until a couple days ago.

The interesting part about May was the eHow earnings, they were at a monthly best.  I have been adding some backlinks to the articles so don’t know if that was why or if the articles are aging in the search engines.

April 2010 Residual Income Earnings

April was quite a month.  Just as I’m getting started building up my article library on eHow they change the entire process over to Demand Studios.  A lot of people aren’t too sure about writing for Demand Studios, especially doing the rev share there.  It would be nice to retain the rights to what I write, but I’m writing for them as much for the money and experience as the content.  I’ve actually already done several fixed price articles, each of which I made $15 for and 1 rev share article that’s been accepted.  I have one more rev share article in review.  I like both capabilities so see myself doing both.  I like the $15 up front but the rev share are nice in that they keep on earning (the reality is thought that I haven’t one article yet that has made me $15).

The one thing I do like about writing for DemandStudios is that there should not be any sweeps after the article is out there.

eHow blogs

I’m currently averaging about $0.15/day from my articles on eHow.  A friend on eHow, Rob Farmer, just started a blog eHow Internet Income and he’s making $1.00 – $1.50 on average per day and he has only a couple more articles than me.

We’re actually doing much the same things.  Writing ehow article as well as doing Xomba.  My goal is to build up to $100/month on all my different internet income streams.  By this I mean my microstock photography, eHow,  Google AdWords (via Xomba and other means), affiliate links, etc.

The microstock sites have pretty much been just sitting there.  I’m really getting the urge to get shooting again and get them building.  Would like to get them to payout on a more regular basis, but from everything I’m reading they do much better as long as you keep active.

I’m focusing on eHow right now.  Short term goal of getting to the $10/month consistently for a couple months to get that payout.  By then it should be spring and getting warmer out and I can do some outside shooting.

Started writing for eHow

Besides my microstock portfolios I’m always experimenting with other options to make money on the Internet.  A very likely candidate to assist in this writing for eHow.  And they only have a $10 payout as opposed to the $50 – $100 for the microstock sites.  My current goal is to get 30 articles up by the end of November.  Hopefully that goes better than my previous Microstock goal.
