November was another good month for blog earnings. Sorry no pretty pictures this month with charts, but here is a quick breakdown.
- Private ad sales – $90
- Google AdSense – $12.46
- Text Link Ads – $18.00
- Reviews – $100
- CashCrate – $8.93
More than a third of the income from this month earned by the blog came from reviews that I wrote for another website. This was a great arrangement that came up. I was contacted by the site owner who was looking to have a few reviews written that he had in backlog. I wrote them and got paid, but did not have to deal with any interaction with the companies or with posting the reviews. If you can get yourself into this sort of paid posting arrangement, goo for you!
A Major Thank You To Our Sponsors!
This month, many of our sponsors were back again. That is because they were smart and prepaid for multiple months instead of going month by month. This move will save them money over the next few months as advertising rates have already increased and probably will ago sometime soon. If you’d like to advertise on Dorm Room Biz, check out our advertising page for more detailed information. You can also contact me with any questions.
If you are looking for an affiliate marketing company to gets started with, then I suggest you check out Motive Interactive. You can read the review we wrote on them. They have an awesome system in place to help you be successful.
If you happen to be in the United Kingdom and looking for any kind of virtual office locations, services, or help, then we highly suggest checking out Regus. I’ve had the opportunity to talk to their people a few times and it seems like a great operation that they have. Even if you want to make your presence known in the country and are not really based there, a virtual office is a great way to get a local phone number and answering system set up.
If you’d like to be a sponsor of Dorm Room Biz, I’d love to talk to you! Check out our advertising page for rates and details and then get in touch with me via email, Twitter, or leave a comment here!
