Earnings for April 2016

A dollar sign.This is a summary of the income, both received and accumulated, that was earned during April 2016.

The earnings are divided into two main categories, Accumulated and Received. Accumulated earnings also detail any payments received from that category during the month. Earnings are then further broken down into the areas from which the earnings were made. Earnings for the previous month follow the current month’s revenue in brackets.

For a full breakdown of article related progress and earnings, see the complete article on InfoBarrel.

Most of the work done during the month was related to articles, and any associated affiliate programmes, rather than other sources.

RedGage earnings are, as has been the standard for some time, still missing.

Fizzy is still not earning anything, and whether or not the outstanding earnings will ever be paid is still open to question.

Amazon US earnings declined again, which was again no surprise. Amazon UK earnings also decreased a bit.

InfoBarrel earnings surprisingly decreased this month; a decent increase had been expected.

Earnings from the role playing game supplements on RPGNow decreased again to the lowest this year, but this was expected with no sales or decent products being released.

Earnings from the role playing game supplements on RPGNow decreased from last month, although it was still one of the better months to date, due to many being sold during the GM’s Day Sale.

Earnings from selling role playing game supplements on RPGNow decreased again, with no sales and no new good supplements released.

Swagbucks saw the first ever payment, which accounted for a significant chunk of the monthly income.

RedGage earnings are, as has been the standard for some time, still missing.

It appears that Fizzy has been sold to new owners, and it looks as if they have discontinued the profit sharing programme. Whether or not the monies still owed will now be paid is therefore debatable.

Amazon affiliate earnings increased again, to the highest ever, and the 7.5% referral rate was reached for the first time. Some sales were due to items sold over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend that weren’t shipped until December, but there was also an awful lot of Christmas activity. Amazon UK sales were also the best ever.

Earnings from selling role playing game supplements on RPGNow decreased, as expected, as the recent high was largely down to sale purchases.

Overall earnings were the best in quite some time, possibly the best ever.

First Swagbucks Payment Received

A dollar sign.I’ve now received my first payment from Swagbucks, a £50 (around US$70) payment to my PayPal account. I had originally planned to hold on until I reached enough for the £100 PayPal voucher, but a sale meant that this would only safe 1 SwagBuck (9,000 were exchanged for the £50 voucher), so it didn’t really seem worth waiting.

The majority of the SwagBucks (now called SBs) earned were from searching the internet and from shopping – all things I was doing anyway. So basically this is money for doing what I was already doing, without much extra time involved.

Following on from last month, there are no new earnings for Fizzy listed. It’s possible that no more money will be earned at all from that site.

Amazon affiliate earnings increased, and the 6.5% level was reached this month, largely down to the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend.

Earnings from selling role playing game supplements on RPGNow increased again, and once more made a new record. This was mostly due to the Halloween sale extending into November and a large number of sales made during the Black Friday Weekend sale.
