Another make money online blog – Why would you read it?

by Skeffling on June 3, 2012 · 11 comments

Yes that is a chicken!

I wouldn’t be writing this if I hadn’t been asked to share what I have learned in an amazing growth period from December 2011, now netting me a five figure monthly income.

I absolutely love earning money online and it gets me out of bed at 6am every day, to check my Amazon stats!  I enjoy the strategies, the cameraderie with other writers and internet marketers and the flexibility in hours.

So why would you listen to me?  I guess the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

My monthly online earnings are as follows, most are reported here on InfoBarrel


Aug 2011 – 25 cents

Sept 2011 – $2.01

Oct 2011 – $9.94

Nov 2011 – $158.23

Dec 2011 - $311.15

Jan 2012 – $204.83

Feb 2012 – $399.45

March 2012 -$788.92

April 2012 – $1317.21

May 2012$2688.78

June 2012- $3312.64

July 2012 – $4499.70

August 2012 – $6296.56

September 2012 – $6647.72

October 2012- $8584.63

November 2012 - $11,618.02 estimated

If you are curious as to now I earn any of this money on the internet, and how it has increased so much, stick around and I’ll share what I can with you.  A good part of it I can account for, the rest is just luck or maybe my Web 2.0 articles maturing.  I am not doing anything illegal or blackhat, I don’t even back-link!

I am still new really, and will occasionally ask you guys some questions too so bear with me!

Just found your blog, Skeffling. Thanks for sharing your story. I’ve just started down this path, and I’ll be checking in regularly to see how you’re doing! As soon as I “do” something, I’ll share it too.

Thanks for stopping in and saying Hi Rich. There is a lot to learn when you are getting started but if you truly enjoy working online and the freedom it brings, it is much easier to do and make inroads.
Look forward to seeing how you do! August 17, 2012 at 1:30 am

Thanks Monty! I hope it does show people is it possible and although a year may seem like a long time, and it is very slow progress at first, it is possible to succeed with hard work and good content.

Congrats! Looks like we are living parallel lives. My earnings and the increase is much like yours, starting in December and growing! I am only a couple thousand ahead of you, but you can catch me I am sure. There are no income ceiling with this! December I was almost starving, now I am living comfortably. Much luck to you. Very inspiring blog, thank you! Keep up the excellent work! Proof again, that we can make money online.

Hi Robin, Thanks for dropping by, reading and commenting! Isn’t this a crazy trip? I totally love what I am doing, it gets me out of bed in the morning! I am glad to hear you are having such great success too, Congratulations on that. Maybe this December will be even better, but you know there is a point where you have everything you want for comfort and just the sheer love and fun of it keeps you going, and keeps the earnings going up! Good luck with yours too! I am sure I’ll be seeing you again! Claire

Wow. Well, unlike you and Robin, above, I’ve made next to nothing in my 8 months online (other than about $300 on Textbroker). An IMer I follow on HubPages shared your site, and now I see for myself why she was so excited.

Okay, I’m off to read all your other posts. Thank you so much for sharing your tips and your results! SO ENCOURAGING!!!

Aloha, Chris

Hi Chris, thanks for reading and your kind comment! Sorry to hear your online earnings have been slow to get going, but you must have good writing skills, so you need to put those to use for yourself, and get that recurring income from those words.

I hope you get a lot of help from the site, that is neat the IMer was sharing the link to here, great she is getting something from it. There is not real system, just lots of instincts kicking in and common sense that seems to be working. The posts can be a bit long and rambling but there is lots of info! Even in the comments there are more tips etc, I find answering questions as they come up below the post that inspired them seems to work well for readers. Again, welcome and enjoy!

Hi again, I’m reading EVERYTHING – comments and all – and am several posts in. Anyways, a question came to mind, and I apologize if you already shared this in a post I didn’t get to yet, but I was wondering: how far along were you when you started outsourcing? Did you do it from early on or is it a recent thing?

I enjoy writing, but some days I just feel pretty discouraged and have a hard time getting started on writing. I’m considering whether I should try outsourcing or just keep plunking along on my own. I definitely want to start getting some money coming in, but doing product reviews and shopping articles isn’t something I’ve done before. I’m more of an informational-type, but it seems like I just need to shift into selling mode to really make money online.

Thanks so much for your time and advice.

Hi Chris, great you are taking it all in! I actually started outsourcing as soon as I knew it was a numbers game and I “thought” I had the keyword stuff figured out! This was last October 2011 about a month into being on Infobarrel. I learned a ton on their forum. There is more way more information in the outsourcing post and quite a bit on the evolution of the outsourcing and my experiences and what has worked best for me.

A think I am quite a lot like you when it comes to writing. I do not mind writing, even if this is something I am not particularly interested in, but the thought of sitting down and writing one after another after another all day does nothing for me. But by still writing myself while starting to outsource, I was able to fine-tune what I am looking for, whilst learning what other writers do (how they do product reviews) and still produce higher-quality sales articles myself. So then you have that extra volume of articles are were acceptable, but do not do quite as well as the ones that I have written. So you get the quality and the quantity (though it is hard to do in one article).

What a nice outsourced batch of 20 articles coming back to you does is gives you a mental boost. When you are sick of writing yourself, it could take a few days “off” to post some of your new lenses, or edit them and post. I get bored very easily, and so need a bit of variety even within a given day, that is why I like Internet marketing.

My very first articles were on homesteading and other informational topics, those articles still only earn pennies a month compared to the product reviews. If you are in informational writer, I think you have a big advantage because you can pick information that really matters into those reviews. You should have an eye for picking out the important highlights and features and always bear in mind what the reader wants from their new purchase, and talk about those benefits.
