September Earnings

Earnings from September stayed about the same since the last time that I did this type of report. This months revenue came in from the following sources: ReviewMe, SponsoredReviews, Google AdSense, and some other miscellaneous areas.

So here it is:

Google AdSense: $5.52
ReviewMe: $5.oo
SponsoredReviews: $12.00
Other Misc: $30.00

TOTAL: $52.52

Not too bad for a little bit of pocket change I suppose. I really want to get this over and up above the $100 mark a month. If I can start to reach about $30 a month with AdSense that would help me along to that path.

Here is a little bit of a breakdown of how each revenue stream was reached.

Google AdSense
This is a combined number for all of my sites (currently at 5) that run AdSense ads. This fluctuates a lot from month to month and day to day. I went a week or so without seeing any clicks and money and then just 2 days ago I started getting a ton of clicks and the pennies were coming in. The big winner for my AdSense is my information fan website for Raven Symone, I started this site specifically for AdSense and it has performed pretty well. Over the summer months, it did a lot better than it has the past 2 months. Since launching TheRavenSymone site in January 2007, I have brought in over $70 from it. I have been working on a couple other websites similar to TheRavenSymone which should be launching soon and will help to bring my AdSense revenue’s up.

The money from these two sites were from campaign reviews or ones that I applied for. If I had more time, school is holding me back, then I would have been able to complete more of these reviews and at least doubled the income from these sites. With bringing Bobby on board with Dorm Room Biz, I hope that we will be able to accomplish that between the two of us now.

Miscellaneous Revenue
Through my website development business, I have been able to keep in touch with a lot of clients and preform small odd jobs for them, so that is where this money came from. When I set up the deal, I decided that I would put it towards Dorm Room Biz and use it to expand the site (towards a new logo? towards a new design? towards hosting/domain?). Basically, someone came to me asking to fix an eBay template that he had created and host it so that he could launch the auction (having all the images work correctly that were embedded within the actual auction design). So for $30, I agreed to fix it up for him and host it.

Whats Next For Dorm Room Biz?
Help us decide! Please let me know what you guys would like to see happen here, what kind of articles you would like to read or things you want to hear about! As far as revenue streams, expect to see offers from DealDotCom and some other sites as well.

How did you all do this past month?

    This is great Chris! I’m a huge believer in publicly setting goals and being transparently documenting the progress of achieving them. Great job!

    I once read that the most difficult part of earning money as an entrepreneur is just making that first dollar… after that, it’s all about finding new ways to expand on what is already working – so you’re well on your way!
