Last year, March 11, 2008, I wrote an article on this site encouraging you to find ways to earn small amounts of money. In fact, I encouraged you to just shoot for ideas that could bring you $1 per day. My advice was to try to come up with a new $1 per day idea each week. If you did that, by now you would be bringing in around $40 per day right now. That’s about $1200 per month on average. Probably not enough to live a great life, but as a supplement to your income, it’s a nice little wad each month. Keep moving ahead with earning an extra $1 per day per week, in a couple of years you won’t have to work a “real job” any longer.
So, I wrote a lot of articles about my $1 per day project, right? Was it all just words, or did I actually do something? Well, honestly, writing the articles was part of my quest to earn an extra $1 per day, because bringing more readers to the site helps it make more money for me! That’s how the game works, after all. Let’s look at three projects that I built up in the past year.
- Selling Load (credit for cellular phones) online. This was my first new project that was part of my push to make an extra $1 per day. I knew that this particular project would earn a lot more than $1 per day, but I put a lot of time into this project too, so the payoff needed to be better than $1 per day. Believe me, it was too! It is an ongoing project that just keeps earning a little more every month, and I’m very happy with the results.
- Informational Products (eBooks, Printed Books, and Videos). I actually have two different stores selling these products (both stores are my own). Primarily, the eBooks have done the best, the Videos have done only so-so thus far. I have some ideas, though on how to improve the sales of the Video, and I’ll be implementing that as a new project for 2009. The eBooks have done really good, though, and I have plans to write 3 or 4 more eBooks this year. Those new eBooks will also be considered as new projects for 2009. Based on my eBook performance last year, the new books should really fulfill my $1 per day goals for the entire year of 2009, anything extra will just be gravy.
- Blogs and Blogging. I actually shut down a lot of blogs in 2008. A year ago I had about 200 blogs. Today I have about a half dozen. After analyzing the amount of money I was spending on the blogs, I decided that it wasn’t worth the effort. I decided to concentrate my efforts on a few blogs that were personally important to me and to build them up into good earners. So, overall, I lost revenue when it comes to Google AdSense and other Advertising programs. However, on one of the blogs that I still have going, I increased my earnings by about $2,000 per month, and that more than makes up what I lost by shutting down the majority of my blogs.
So, 2008 was a great year when it comes to my $1 per day project. With the three projects that I just mentioned, my per day earnings amounted to approximately $95 per day, or about double where I should be right now.
How about you? Did you try my $1 per day project that I recommended? If so, how did you do? Are you making at least $40 per day from your new projects now? If you are, congratulations, you are a success in my $1 per day project! If you didn’t try it, why not? Gear up for a big push in 2009 and see if you can’t get it going this year!
