Earnings for January 2016

A dollar sign.This is a summary of the income, both received and accumulated, that was earned during January 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 earnings unsurprisingly, now that the Christmas period is over, decreased, although Amazon US earnings were still one of the highest. Amazon UK earnings were the lowest ever, due to no sales and a return making them negative.

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.

Some of the links in this section are affiliate links that can earn me a commission, or revenue share, at no extra expense to you.
