I made a total of $64.30 at Share a Sale in November 2013. I made more in October 2013 than I did in November. One thing I like about Share a Sale is they direct deposit into my bank rather than through PayPal. With PayPal you have to pay fee of $1.00 usually just to have the funds sent to you. Squidoo and Zujava both use PayPal and that $1.00 fee is a lot when you are already splitting the funds 50/50 with the site owner. I like affiliates like Share a Sale and Amazon that pay directly to my bank because there is no fee. I wish everyone offered the direct deposit option. The $64.30 is a much appreciated deposit and my Share a Sale has definitely been up since I started using Pinterest.
Zujava paid about 3 hours early this month, I made a total of $70.14 minus the PayPal fee of $1.00. That is a significant decrease from last month but I knew it was coming. I made more sales in August than I did in September on Zujava. Next month should be higher than this month but it's so hard to tell.
I had higher hopes for Zujava but it is what it is. I was apologizing to my friend Lauren today because Zujava has turned out to be less than rewarding for her and I was the one who referred her there. My motivation to write there has definitely tapered off, I don't think I've written anything there in four months. I like getting the spare change each month, most definitely but I don't see a future there for the Zu and I. That could change but for now, I have no hard plans for Zujava in 2014 like I do for other sites and my own blogs.
I'm trying to remain positive and I'm thankful for the $546.48 that I made this month. That's $140 higher than last month's earnings. I know that the next two months will be much higher but then it's going to drop drastically in March 2014 because Christmas season will be all paid out. December had a slightly higher tier payout than November did.
Squidoo Tier Payouts (October 2013) were as follows:
Ad Pool $13.93
Text link ads $2.03
Ad Pool $2.37
Text link ads $0.34
Ad Pool $0.12
Text link ads $0.02
The dismal earnings reports from others were very sad. I know one long time Lensmaster, Beverly Owens, actually deleted her account because she felt it was no longer worth it. That was very sad, I remember her from when I first joined. It's like the end of an era and it's really, really sad if you think about it too much - so I try not too.
Praise Jesus! Finally a decent month worth of sales for Christmas. The rush started a little late this year considering Thanksgiving was pushed back an entire week this year. Last year Thanksgiving was on the 22nd of November, this year, the 28th. That makes a huge impact on when people start shopping for Christmas. I made $6,475.13 this month! WOW! That's pretty good considering I lost half my work this year. I'm very grateful for all that I earn from home. In October 2013, I made a total of $2,272.26.
Next month is December and I hope to bring in the same amount, maybe a little more. It's really anyone's guess as to how this year will play out; a lot of people are broke this year because of the outrageous cost of health care and living. "President Obama: The Biggest Government Spender In World History" according to Forbes. When someone racks up that kind of debt on a country, it has serious implications on the people. The cost of everything has been driven up and leaves people with less money to splurge on Christmas. Sales are down all over, not just online and people are expected to spend less this year.
I'm still very hopeful in what December brings, it's always a good month in retail sales. Here's to December being really awesome!! Thank you Lord for all you provide and continue to provide for my family. There is no one greater than my God.
