Earnings for March 2017

A dollar sign.This is a summary of the income, both received and accumulated, that was earned during March 2017.

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 writing related progress and earnings, see the complete article here.

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. GamesChart also looks like it’s gone, which means that what was earned from there is now lost. MindJolt earnings were, a bit oddly, zero.

Amazon US earnings increased this month and were actually higher than March last year, the first month in a while that’s been true.. Amazon UK earnings increased quite a bit from the previous month, but as mentioned before, they tend not to be remotely consistent.

As has been the case for far too many months now, InfoBarrel earnings are still unbelievably poor. It appears that the new layout may have adversely affected earnings, even assuming they are genuine, which is a big assumption. The continued total lack of interest in running the site has meant that it is no longer being written on.

Earnings from the role playing game supplements on RPGNow increased substantially over last month. There was an expected spike cause by the GM’s Day Sale and, even though one supplement was released as pay what you want, the quality was higher.

There were also some more, minor, earnings from Zazzle and Slice the Pie has made its first appearance with a bit of 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.
