Earnings for August 2016

A dollar sign.This is a summary of the income, both received and accumulated, that was earned during August 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 increased from the previous month. Amazon UK earnings were negative, due to no sales and a returned item.

InfoBarrel advertising earnings decreased from last month (actual earnings increased due to winning the monthly contest) and are still appallingly, and unbelievably, bad.

Earnings from the role playing game supplements on RPGNow increased substantially, due to the Cthulhu Mythos Sale and my own sale, earning more than triple the previous best month.

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.
